This is the last piece of development ever to be built on the 80-acre Bukit Jalil Recreational Park. So the call is out to own a very coveted prize before it is gone.

SKYLUXE On the Park is by SkyWorld Development Sdn Bhd, a member of SkyWorld Development Group ─ innovative people who believe in stoking the passion and living the art. They don’t just build homes they profess in their website, they design experiences and have won several awards as Best Emerging Designer for changing quite a bit of Malaysia’s skyline. Some of their works of art include: Sky Arena@Setapak, Sky Awani@Sentul, Sky Meridian@Sentul East, Sky Rise@Taman Danau Desa, and now SKYLUXE@Bukit Jalil. (For more on Skyworld, scroll down to the Analysis Section).

Project Details

facade - 02H

Apparently, according to the developers, SKYLUXE was a creation that was inspired by the most natural of elements ─ from the creatures of the soil.

“Surrounded by a green environment,” they explained in one of their placards, “it was only fitting to design SKYLUXE with earth’s elements ─ where the habitat of man meets the various habitats of fauna reflected in selected areas of the 80-acre recreational park.”

SKYLUXE's structure has been an inspired one, according to the designers, with the muse being Mother Nature herself.

SKYLUXE’s structure has been an inspired one, according to the designers, with the muse being Mother Nature herself. Look at the explanations below.

Mother Nature’s Muse

  • Ant Colony

Starting from the lowest floors where only organisms such as ants would inhabit, the Ground to 8th floor represneting the car park levels, (as can be seen in the picture above), the designers described how they were inspired by the ant colony:

“Taking a leaf from ants’ excellent organizational behavior, it’s a smooth flow from the entrance to the carpark as clear direction from the start brings everything into perspective.”

  • Spider Web

“Like the spider that starts with one thread and consistently builds upon it, the lower intermediate floor’s purpose is to be the firm foundation that ensures lasting strength.”

  • Butterfly Chrysalis

“The chrysalis emerges when the caterpillar’s skin is shed in its transition to become a beautiful butterfly. Representing there’s more to SKYLUXE, you’ll have to experience to believe.”

  • Bee Hive

“Even bees are structured in building their homes. The elements of beehive built into the terrace is a salutation to how the bee reminds us of building well and strong.”

  • Bird’s Nest

“A house is not just brick and motar. Inspired by the bird’s patience, care and detail, we built SKYLUXE to exude warmth, comfort and safety for you.”

Type B’s Living Area

Type B

There are two balconies for this unit type. A yard is included. Again, the layout is different from the norm.

Type B1 600

There are two balconies for this unit type. A yard is included.

Type C 600

Out of the box layouts applied here. Nice flow given to the movements of a household.

Value for Money

There are some free items coming along with the units. They are air-conditioners (Daikin or equivalent) going to all bedrooms and living rooms), Kitchen Cabinet, hood, hob and fridge.

The difference between D and D1 is the orientation of the balconies.

Type D1 600

This is also the most expensive unit going for about RM950K. This unit comes with 3 car parks.

Facilities

Facilities Overview - 03H

There are 24 contemporary lifestyle facilities including Sky Gardens on designated floors and Rooftop Sky Terraces. One recurrent motif is the use of Floating Cocoons or Hanging Cocoons, just for the added feel of relaxing in mid air.

pool pavilion - 03H

The other interesting facility is the Cantilevered Gym which you can see a mock up of in the Artist Impressions of SKYLUXE above. Basically, the Gym Room protrudes out of the building so that you get the feeling that, (like the Floating Cocoons) you are exercising in mid air.

Location

One could describe SKYLUXE as sitting almost within the bosom of the 80-acre Bukit Jalil Recreational Park. The development is tucked very, very snugly against its lush forests and lakes and mere metres to the park’s main entrance on Jalan Jalil Perkasa 1. (SkyLuke is on Jalan Jalil Perkasa 4. It is the left inroad from Jalan Jalil Perkasa 1 heading toward Awan Besar LRT). See maps and video below.

In the Thick of Greenery

Bird’s Eye View of the park

Bird’s Eye View of the park.

This puts the development in the thick of greenery while overlooking yet another huge landscaped lawn called the Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort just across the road about 600m away. Actually, the 18-hole Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort is even larger than the recreational park. The golfing greens span 165 acres ─ just the perfect thing for those who love golf.

In the Thick of Shopping and Leisure

Everyone has been so excited about Malton’s Bukit Jalil City and Pavilion 2 that Berjaya’s The Link 2, Bukit Jalil has been somewhat eclipsed in the furore.

Well, this is a reminder that The Link 2 is a biggie too.

The Link 2 is a 4.75-acre mixed development on Jalan Jalil Perkasa 1. Apart from offices, it comprises retails in the form of shops, shoplots, shoplets ─ you name it ─ and a street mall for the full spectrum of dining, entertainment and retail therapy required of today’s lifestyle.

The good news is: SKYLUXE is a mere 400m away from it ─ a 5 minute stroll actually.  The Link 2 has residentials too and it is interesting to note that the 2-tower highrise is quite similar to SKYLUXE in terms of density, unit size and built-ups.

This is the entrance to the Show Gallery. The road in is Jalan Jalil Perkasa 4. To get your bearing, look at the hoarding on the right of the picture.

But going back to Pavilion Bukit Jalil City, SKYLUXE is 1.4km from this 50-acre mixed lifestyle-residential-and-commercial development ─ IF you go by the main road, which, in this case, would be the Bukit Jalil highway 650m or 2 minutes away by car from SKYLUXE.

BUT! That would be the long and tedious way around. SkyWorld, the developer will be building a link walk bridge from SKYLUXE to Pavilion right through the Bukit Jalil Recreational Park itself. This will put SKYLUXE a mere 500m from the biggest shopping mall in Bukit Jalil.

And if that is not enough of back-to-back or front-to-back shopping, WCT has also joined the fray with Paradigm 2 or Paradigm Garden City on Jalan Awan Besar, 1.6km from SKYLUXE. Among other components in this 67-acre mixed integrated development, there will also be a 2m sq ft shopping centre called Paradigm Mall.

Pictures above taken from inside the park. A walkbridge of 500m will be built to link SKYLUXE and Pavilion Bukit Jalil City, right through the Bukit Jalil Recreational Park.

The Bukit Jalil Highway is currently in the throes of construction. Actually, the whole of Bukit Jalil is in the throes of construction, mostly due to the construction of Bukit Jalil City and the widening of roads.  You will see some of this in the video below.

Summary

Buying a home is not just about how much your floor space is going to cost you per sq ft. There are a myriad other considerations. The human emotion is not quantifiable and cannot and should not be measured in numbers, even if those numbers eventually make dollars and sense…investment sense that is.

But more than numbers, what is more important is what delights the heart and pleases the senses. This is especially true when it comes to selecting your home.

A home has got to be livable. It has got to be a place that you can be proud of, to feel good coming home to and of course, to grow in.

A prestigious address, elegance at every corner, inspired designs…they put you in your comfort zone in more ways than one.

So if art, artistry and style are important to you, if form and function are twin prerequisites of your lifestyle, if living in the zen spot of serenity while having a finger on the pulse of urbanity represent the elevation of your wellbeing…then SKYLUXE is what’s going to make it all come together for you.

Best of all, SKYLUXE’s numbers are one of the easiest to say yes to and the sweet site it is located in, in Bukit Jalil? That needs no further expounding.
