Multi-award-winning developer Alfranko Group of Companies is a relative newcomer to the country’s property scene.
The investment and development conglomerate, which established itself in Europe — primarily Russia — unveiled its inaugural Malaysia-based project back in 2013. It has since gone from strength to strength, with its latest project piquing the interest of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) judging panel.
NOVO Ampang, Alfranko’s flagship KL project, located in the capital’s exclusive Ampang Hilir district, welcomed its first residents this year. The 35-storey property features 395 units, ranging in size from 686 to 1775 square feet, with a total of 11 different types of units available (studio, dual key and duplex), all moments away from some of the city’s top lifestyle attractions.
However, it is the property’s bold design aesthetics that caught the panel’s attention and earned Alfranko top spot in the Best Condo/Apartment Architectural Design category at the 2020 event.
“Superb city living, Novo Ampang by Alfranko Development boasts artistic architectural design features, including a façade with colour-changing lighting that enhances eco and aesthetic prowess,” the judges noted. “Meanwhile, duplexes and full-length windows embrace the urban environment, taking residents up-close to the dazzling metropolis, as retreat facilities beckon at sky level.”
The name behind the sleek design of the project is well-known across the country. Launched in 1987, Veritas boasts an impressive portfolio and this latest feather in the cap is another example of the firm’s unique take on classic aesthetics.
Both functional and fetching, the facade, with its angular exterior and evening lighting, stands out against one of the city’s most diverse skylines, known locally as Embassy Row. Smart and sustainable features to the design, meanwhile, include intelligent lighting solutions, inside and out, integrated waste management systems and eco-friendly materials used throughout the construction.
The property also boasts a slew of high-end facilities that will inevitably meet the expectations of discerning homeowners. In addition to the bespoke inclusions such as a signature cigar lounge, coffee house, and jacuzzi, the high-rise boasts an infinity pool, sky bar, AV lounge, laundry, lifestyle space, and business lounge. There’s also a nursery for the little ones, hangout zone for entertaining friends, and state-of-the-art gym.
Beyond the onsite options, there are a plethora of lifestyle amenities in the surrounding neighbourhood.
These include the reputable schools such as Seri Ampang Secondary School, Mutiara International School, Fairview International School, International School of Kuala Lumpur, and Sayfol International School. Elsewhere, F&B outlets, clinics, banks, and retail malls such as Ampang Point shopping centre, Suria KLCC shopping mall, and Great Eastern Mall are just a stone’s throw away. Public transportation in the area, meanwhile, includes buses and taxis, while the nearest train station is Dato’ Keramat LRT station.
