  • 5 April 2021

As land in Kuala Lumpur city centre become scarcer, a land transaction can mark a major win for the purchaser. In that regards, the purchase of 5.43 acres along Jalan Belfield in the Kampung Attap vicinity in 2017 by Sunway Bhd represents a big win.

The developer acquired the freehold parcel for RM165 million (approximately RM836.17 psf). The site is located close to the old Istana Negara.

There’s the surrounding greenery on one side, and the other side is the iconic Merdeka 118 Tower which is expected to be ready by 2022. 

Sunway Belfield has easy access to and from Federal Highway, and the north- and south-bound PLUS Expressway via Jalan Syed Putra, Jalan Damansara, and Jalan Istana.

Upon its completion, Merdeka 118 will be the tallest building in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. It will stand at 635 metres or 2,152 feet (measured from the ground to the tip of the tower’s off-centre spire about 150m long); taller than the 452m Petronas Twin Towers.

The purchased site will now be home to Sunway Belfield. In total, the mixed development will have an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM1 billion. 

Here are the key selling features of Sunway Belfield.

Analysis

Jalan Belfield snakes through most of Kampung Attap, an area that houses government quarters, colonial-era buildings, and some of the oldest historical buildings in Kuala Lumpur. All these are set amid lush greenery.

Some of the older buildings have been refurbished, including The Zhongshan Building, which has been transformed into an art hub, and the famed Loke Yew family home that is now called Pentago House.

The Sunway Belfield serviced residence will have a GDV of RM360 million.

The area is also accessible via the Maharajarela Monorail station, the Merdeka MRT station, Jalan Syed Putra, Jalan Wisma Putra, Jalan Loke Yew, and Jalan Sultan Sulaiman (which is linked to Jalan Maharajalela and Jalan Syed Putra, connecting Kuala Lumpur to Petaling Jaya).

This area is also close to Petaling Street and the upcoming Merdeka 118 development, which is set to liven up the area near Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara (off Jalan Stadium).

With all that it’s got going for it, this area is a spot to watch.

As at March 2021, it has registered an 80% take-up rate for its first tower despite its soft launch during the pandemic. Due to overwhelming response, the developer has now opened its second tower for sale. 

The Sunway Belfield serviced residence will have a GDV of RM360 million.

If you’re looking at a Sunway Belfield Residence unit priced from RM590,000, here are some estimated loan figures.
