The Havre Bukit Jalil: A worry-free review?
A 99-year leasehold land spanning 3.58 acres in Bukit Jalil will bear witness to the development of The Havre, a fully residential high-rise property by Aset Kayamas.
Aset Kayamas Group comprises of four companies namely Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd, Faber Vista Sdn Bhd, Siner Juta Sdn Bhd, and Era Ecoland Sdn Bhd. Established in 2011 by Tan Sri Datuk Chai Kin Kong, this developer though fairly new has strong support financially, evident from their collaborations with the Government to offer affordable housing projects like Perumahan Penjawat Awam 1Malaysia (PPA1M) and Rumah Mampu Milik Wilayah Persekutuan (RUMAWIP).
Of their ongoing projects include Residensi PandanMas, Residensi SentulMas, The Holmes, Parkhill Residence, Residensi PPA1M, and The Henge.
There will be 1,052 units offered in total for The Havre, spread between two blocks towering at 40 storeys each. Having two built-up choices of 1,023 sq ft and 1,239 sq ft, the selling price starts from an average price per square foot of around RM550 which translates to a listing price of about RM580,000.
Since there are just so many high-rise choices in Bukit Jalil nowadays, what makes this project so special? Is it worthy enough to invest for own-stay, or is it more suited for rental-gain investment?

The Havre Bukit Jalil: An overview.
Havre is French for ‘Haven’, thus this project’s concept of featuring a home where one can retreat from the scary (not scary, scary… more chaotic and crazy) modern world is truly a welcome idea.
Having 1,052 units in total spread out evenly between two towers standing at 40 storeys each, The Havre is a fully residential high-rise property development that will be built on 3.58 acres worth of 99-year leasehold land in Bukit Jalil. Having around fifteen units per floor, it’s good to know that for each block there will be six high-speed lifts allocated to serve the residents there for added convenience.
There’re two layout designs offered namely Type A at 1,023 sq ft, and Type B at 1,239 sq ft.
Type A spots three rooms, two bathrooms, and a powder room. Featuring an open concept whereby the kitchen, the dining room, and the living area are all seamlessly integrated with the balcony, there’s even a multipurpose yard designed next to the kitchen and the powder room. The master bedroom comes with an ensuite, while the second bathroom is designed to be used exclusively for occupants of room one and two.
Type B spots three rooms and three bathrooms, and even comes with a storage room. The kitchen, dining area, and living room, are all now featured in a wide, open-block design. There is now a family hall for all the rooms. Although the third room won’t have direct access to the bathroom, it’s nice to know that the second room will have its own ensuite. Plus, the storage room is sure to come in handy especially for medium to large sized families.
Each unit will be given two car park bays. With an average price per square foot of around RM550, the listing price for The Havre is expected to start from RM580,000.
There will be two floors for the facilities of The Havre. Covering more than one acre, there will be more than 36 facilities altogether for the residents to enjoy.
At Level 7 that’s dedicated mainly for water activities, there’ll be the likes of a swimming pool, wading pool, jogging track, a hammock grove, and a BBQ pit. The rooftop which is dedicated for “dry” activities houses the likes of a badminton court, a multipurpose hall, a games room, and (a unique selling point for The Havre) a full-glass sky bridge gym that will connect the two towers among others. The expected maintenance fee is around RM0.30 per square foot.
And what’s a haven without greenery right? Inspired by The Hanging Garden of Babylon, rest assured that green plants are in abundance here that even the car park podium will be covered by them.
Bukit Jalil: Standing in the eyes of the world then, and now Malaysians.
Finding yourself humming to the tune of this hit by Ella? Well then congratulations, you’re a 90s kid.
If however you’re a Belieber and have no idea what this refers to, read on to learn more about Bukit Jalil.
You see, back in 1998 when Malaysia hosted the prestigious Commonwealth Games (which was a pretty huge deal since our beloved country was the first in Asia to carry such an honour), the internet wasn’t yet a thing and most people still religiously consumed this thing called TV. Ads to promote it were nonstop and of the more prominent one is a music video of the Malaysian singer, Ella, performing Standing In The Eyes Of The World, the official song for the event.
And Bukit Jalil is the suburb that hosted most of the event’s games, and both opening and closing ceremonies through Malaysia’s largest sports complex called The National Sports Complex (Kompleks Sukan Negara) that houses the likes of Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Putra Indoor Stadium, and Malaysia National Hockey Stadium to name a few.
So there you have it, a brief history of the place plus an introduction to one of the many amenities available there.
For the past ten years, Bukit Jalil is fast growing into one of the most sought after place to live in, sort of like the next hotspot if you will.
Surrounded by highways like the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), the Bukit Jalil Highway (or Puchong-Sungai Besi Highway), the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS Highway), the Maju Expressway (MEX Highway), and the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), this place is now also served by many RapidKL’s Sri Petaling and Ampang Line LRT with stations like in Bukit Jalil, Sri Petaling, Awan Besar, Muhibbah, and Alam Sutera.
The Havre Bukit Jalil is located strategically near to many amenities. For those who like physical exercise (and mental workouts as well from all those business talks), they will appreciate the Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Club at around four kilometres away or the Kinrara Golf Club at seven kilometres away. Those who prefer just the physical aspect of working out though may opt for the Bukit Jalil Recreational Park instead, at around two kilometres away.
And with a healthy body comes a healthy mind. There are a few higher-education institutions set up in the town like the International Medical University (IMU), and the Asia Pacific University (APU), both that are around five kilometres away from the development. A science research centre for knowledge-based industries called Technology Park Malaysia (TPM) is also located here at around the same distance. Plus, residents of The Havre will be glad to know that a school called SRJK(C) Lai Meng is also close to the project’s site, at around one kilometre away.
For those of you who hates the sun with a passion and is thankful to the person who invented modern air conditioning system (it’s Willis Carrier by the way, look him up), the company who brought Pavilion KL, the high-class shopping mall in Bukit Bintang, is bringing the mall to Bukit Jalil. As part of Bukit Jalil City’s development, the mall is currently called Pavilion 2.
Are your eyes now opened to this place’s potential?
The Havre Bukit Jalil: An assessment.
How does Bukit Jalil compare to other places in Klang Valley you ask? Well, SkyLuxe On The Park by SkyWorld Development at around two kilometres away and The Link 2 Residences by Berjaya Properties at around three kilometres away would make for a good comparison don’t you think?
|Name||Tenure/Land Title||Price per Sq Ft||Built-up in Sq Ft||Total Units|
|The Havre||Leasehold/ Residential||RM550 average||Starting from 1,023||1,052|
|SkyLuxe On The Park||Freehold/Residential||RM750 average||Starting from 661||477|
|The Link 2 Residences||Freehold/ Commercial||RM800 average||Starting from 667||539|
The Havre wins in scoring a cheaper entry price and having bigger built-up offerings but loses in terms of being a leasehold development, and having a higher number of units. Nevertheless, everyone can agree that for this part of Bukit Jalil (all three projects are developed in the vicinity of Bukit Jalil City), the homes bear premium prices.
The Havre Bukit Jalil: The verdict.
Some concerns do arise that the project is located too close to HTC (High Tension Cable) and may be harmful but some experts have concluded that for the theory to be proven true, a study of at least eighty to a hundred years duration needs to be conducted.
Then again, even mobile phones are said to be hazardous to one’s health, so…
Bukit Jalil is definitely a place to be, though hopefully in the near future, more improvements can be made to lessen the nightmarish traffic woes there. We don’t want another KL city centre, do we?
The product of a well-received developer is definitely something to look forward to, and given time may prove to be a worthy investment for both own-stay and rental gains, thanks to the excellent amenities surrounding it.
