PETALING JAYA: YTL Land &
Development Bhd, which is launching its condominium development The Capers
at Sentul East today, caused a 'mad rush' among potential buyers looking to
lock in sales.
“There was a mad rush of people scrambling in. The food for the guests was
left uneaten,” said a fund manager who was on-site to buy a unit yesterday.
At press time, about 80% of Block A has been taken up, according to a sales
person when contacted by StarBizWeek yesterday.
The Capers, which has a gross development value of RM350mil, consists of 338
units housed in two 36-storey towers and 128 low-rise suites.
Built-up areas for the tower units range from 695 sq ft to 1,567 sq ft with
two bedrooms and 3+1 bedrooms configurations.
The low-rise suites are made up of duplexes and 3-storey single-level
suites. Sizes are 999 sq ft (2+1 bedrooms) and 1,965 sq ft (duplex 4+1+1
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.
The Capers is the third residential development in Sentul East after The
Tamarind and The Saffron (both sell-out projects were launched in 2005 and
Sentul is one of the areas that has been earmarked as a 'hotspot' to benefit
from the Government’s upcoming mass rapid transit (MRT) project.
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.”
Yeoh said that in the future, all Sentul East developments would be
connected via a sky bridge to provide convenience to the community and
create a thriving and well-connected hot spot.
“This elevated sky bridge provides one with seamless access from the Sentul
KTM Komuter through our properties and ends at the Sentul Timur LRT
He said the first connection would be built in the later part of this year.
