Property Report, 23 October 2012
The Malaysian Luxury Property Market is becoming ever more sophisticated, with a friendly regulatory framework for investment, attractive incentives for second-home buyers, evolving architectural and design trends, and an accessible market that will soon spoil international buyers with choices.
It pays to be different
Property Times, Malaysia, 12 April 2011
You should have seen the crowd quieting up to buy The Capers when it was previewed at YTL Land’s sales office in Starhill Gallery along KL’s Jalan Bukit Bintang. Despite being priced between RM688, 519 and RM3.28 million, or an average of RM575psf-a new price benchmark for Sentul – they snapped up all the 338 units in the tower block in just two days.The huge turnout was expected as more than 7,000 people had registered their interest, but nevertheless, YTL Land executive director Datuk Yeoh Seok Kian said he was still pleasantly surprised.
“Many of them were attracted by the iconic architecture,” he told me.
“The design of The Capers is something that KL has not been before...we want to raise (the city’s architectural) benchmarks and contribute to her goal of becoming a world-class city through our vision of transforming Sentul. “
A sellout in Sentul, almost
The Edge Malaysia, 5 April 2011
For those who missed the news, investors turned out in full force for the preview of YTL Land and Development’s The Capers in Kuala Lumpur Sentul East on March 25 and 26. At the end of the two days, all the 338 tower units of the freehold project, with a gross development value of RM350million, had been snapped up.There was so much of excitement at the sales gallery that one of those present compared it to a fish market!What are the reasons for the huge demand? The winning ingredients are there: strategic location and accessibility, pricing, the developer’s reputation and credibility and unique design.
Commenting on the staggering results, YTL Land & Development Berhad executive director Datuk Yeoh Seok Kian said, “We knew the response to The Capers was going to be good as more than 7,000 people had earlier registered their interest with us, but we certainly did not expect to have a sell-out story in our hands ahead of the official launch.
“The design of The Capers is certainly something that KL has not seen before that we’re proud to bring to Malaysians for the first time. We are raising the benchmark in terms of architecture and design, not only to contribute to KL’s goal of becoming a world -class city, but more importantly to contribute towards the transformation of Sentul under our vision of urban renewal,” said Datuk Yeoh.
YTL Land to launch The Capers condo
The Star, 26 March 2011
YTL Land executive director Datuk Yeoh Seok Kian said one of the top selling points of The Capers was its design. “The Capers' other unique points include its freehold status, a prime city location that is well-connected by road and train, backed by a 294-acre masterplan that has been dedicated to re-generate this 100-year-old town with a new vibrancy,” he told StarBizWeek in an e-mail.
YTL Land is the first developer to launch a development that is close to an upcoming MRT station. Yeoh noted that Sentul already enjoyed a multi-connected infrastructure network, placing it in direct access with key locations by road and train.
“Indeed, with the onset of the KL City Circle line (which circles the Kuala Lumpur city centre), Sentul will turn into a major stop-over point among the city's key attractions, not only bringing with it more traffic on a consistent basis but providing enhanced convenience to the community and resulting in significant impact to property values.”
