The developer expects to see more people coming to KL East once developments in the area are fully complete.

The growth in population will help transform KL East into a future business and education hub, making KL East Mall perfectly poised to reap the benefits of its thriving population.

Key tenants of the KL East Mall includes Jaya Grocer, Camp5, MBO, Blue Ice-Skating Rink, Toys ‘R’ Us, Harvey Norman and Café Chef Wan.

The Veo is the inaugural residential towers of KL East, which stands as the first development phase of the township. The second development phase is The Ridge, a freehold serviced residence located directly above of KL East Mall.

Summary

The Veo has good potential in terms of investment. With developments like The Ridge (also at KL East) and Sunway Montana located within the same vicinity, it will create a stretch of luxury residential and commercial properties along the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2).

DXS08386b

The rapid developments in Taman Melawati in the past few years have resulted in higher prices for the older houses. The developer is leveraging on the uniqueness of the site to sell KL East properties.

It is a hillside development, but the developer is trying to develop it in such a way that does not touch the key profile of the area.
