  • 18 January 2021

In the enclave of Bukit Jalil sits The Z Residence @ Bukit Jalil, a high-rise condominium consisting of 4 blocks. Developed by boutique developer Trinity Group, The Z Residence is an exclusive yet affordable development that blends a contemporary lifestyle with nature.

In line with Trinity Groups’ commitment to building communities and enriching lives, The Z Residence is supplemented by several green and eco-friendly initiatives and has a large area devoted to lavish green landscaping.

Meanwhile, the modern living lifestyle concept is evident from its cutting-edge architecture and accompanying facilities that would normally be associated with higher-priced developments.

The Z Residence offers a balance of luxury and comfort in the southern Klang Valley area of Bukit Jalil which currently has quite a number of upscale developments.

The Z Residence proved to be a worthy choice as the entire project was sold out in a mere 6 months. Towers A and B were snapped up within 2 weeks of the preview, while 50 percent of Tower C units were sold on its launch day 2 months later.

The Z Residence is strategically located, with easy access to Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya via many major highways and the LRT. It is also close to several mature townships, which allows residents to benefit from the public amenities and establishments in these surrounding areas.

Project Details

The Z Residence is a high-rise project by Trinity Group, located in Bukit Jalil. It was developed on a 6.7-acre piece of freehold land with a gross development value (GDV) of RM520 million. The project commenced in 2011 and was fully completed by 2014. It aimed to provide luxury living at reasonable prices.

The Z Residence comes with many modern amenities amidst a leafy setting for residents to relax and unwind

Conceptualising healthy city living and green conservation, the developer had allocated (at that time) an unprecedented 50 per cent of the entire development for lush green landscaping, which was crafted by an award-winning landscape architect. The vast array of amenities include a landscaped floating garden, sky lounge, infinity swimming pool, passive pool, children’s playground, and barbeque area.

The Z Residence units have a north-south orientation, offering either a Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya skyline view. Units are designed to be well-ventilated, and come with floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows to ensure that natural lighting is aplenty while deflecting sound and reflecting heat to ensure comfort for its residents.

The developer has also implemented green initiatives such as rainwater harvesting and equipped each unit with a Greengard Waste Disposal System, which separates dry and wet waste, recycling the wet waste into fertilizers. For peace of mind, The Z Residence is also equipped with a 3-tier security system at the guardhouse, lobby, and comes with perimeter fencing. Despite the many amenities, the developer managed to keep building cost to a conservative figure by integrating practical designs and value-sourcing without compromising on quality.

The Z Residence comprises 4 blocks of 26 and 27 levels with a total of 1,136 units that sits on top of a 5-storey carpark podium. There are 6 design options with a choice of 2 or 3 bedrooms. Built-ups are sizable, ranging from 1,032 sq ft to 1,407 sq ft. Blocks A, C and D has 11 units per floor with 3 lifts to service, while Block B has a higher density of 13 units per floor with 4 lifts. All units come with air conditioning in every room and the living hall.

During the development of the project, residents of the nearby Bukit OUG Condominium raised concerns over the impact of the construction, fearing the risk of landslides due to levelling works at the slopes. The developer then held numerous dialogue sessions with residents, the local council and Kuala Lumpur City Hall and took the necessary precautionary measures to ensure that the impact of the development towards safety and the environment would be contained.

Another concern was the expected traffic congestion that would be a result of this as well as other neighbouring high-density projects in the area. To address this concern, a 800-metre access road costing RM3 million was built between Jalan BK 1/20 and Jalan 4/155 to alleviate the traffic congestion in the area, shortening the distance between Puchong to Bukit Jalil via the Bukit Jalil Highway.

Location

The Z Residence’s location is considerably strategic. While it is not within extremely close proximity to any major retail or commercial centres, many amenities are easily available in the area. Bigger malls and major hospitals are all within a good radius from the development. 

It is well connected to the Kuala Lumpur city centre (KLCC) and Petaling Jaya via its accessibility to major highways such as the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), Bukit Jalil Expressway, Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP), Kuala Lumpur-Seremban Expressway, Maju Expressway (MEX), and Old Klang Road. The RM3 million investment of a new link road by the developer is also a bonus as it has improved accessibility and connectivity to its surrounding neighbourhoods.

There are 2 LRT Stations within walking distance – the Muhibbah and Awan Besar stations on the Sri Petaling line, giving residents the option of public transportation.

It is close to Technology Park Malaysia (TPM) and very mature townships such as Taman Yarl, Taman OUG, and Sri Petaling, which have many public amenities and eateries.

Analysis

In recent years, the Bukit Jalil area has seen a spurt in high rise and upscale developments. Its good access to both Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya is attractive especially to young urban professionals and young families. As the area is quite heavily populated, heavy traffic especially during peak hours, while expected, can be a sore point.

The Z Residence offers a balance of luxury and comfort in the southern Klang Valley area of Bukit Jalil.

Nevertheless, The Z Residences @ Bukit Jalil is considered a fair investment in exchange for its rather spacious units, many attractive and charming amenities and strategic location. While many of the developments in the Bukit Jalil area are leasehold projects, The Z Residence is perched on freehold land which is added value. As at January 2021, it garners a gross rental yield of 3.4%, which is pretty decent.
