Ekotitwangsa The Heart Of KL RIVER CITY
A unique development in the northern hemisphere of Kuala Lumpur
Imagine living in a place where you are given the option to cruise through a RM4.4 billion revitalised river to reach the nearest LRT station as well as future MRT 2 station. This can now become a reality with EkoTitiwangsa, a RM600 million freehold residential development that will be located at the heart of the Kuala Lumpur River City.
The Kuala Lumpur River City project spans across a 3 km stretch along the Gombak River and is located just 5 km off the city’s golden triangle, this is a pioneer riverside development of the River of Life (ROL) project. Covering 110 km in length, the River of Life project covers Sungai Kling from its upstream until its confluence with Sungai Kerayong, as well as its tributaries, the Gombak, Batu, Bunus, Jinjang and Kerayong Rivers. The River of Life is part of the government’s Economic Transformation Programme under the Greater Kuala Lumpur plan.
Inspired by Cheonggyecheon River project in South Korea, the Kuala Lumpur River City (KLRC) is a world class riverside mix development consisting of a shopping mall, green public space, office tower, retail space and EkoTitiwangsa, the residential segment of the development. With a concept of sustainability in mind, the Kuala Lumpur City Hall has approved the masterplan for the KL River City where water taxis will be used to connect to the Titiwangsa LRT and monorail stations as well as future MRT 2 station. The development will also feature a direct tunnel link to Titiwangsa Lake and recreational park once the construction is completed. The development also encourages cycling as a mode of transportation.
HOME BY THE RIVERSIDE
EkoTitiwangsa comprises of three blocks of low-dense serviced apartments with a total of 696 units. For the time being, the developer had launched 270 units of tower C priced at RM750 per sq.ft. this year. Tower A and tower B will have 240 units and 180 units respectively, however, all units will be completed at the same time in 2019. The three towers will each have 50, 40 and 36 storeys with many layouts that will suit different wants and needs.
Furnished with kitchen cabinets, air-conditioning, hood and hob, these units will also have water heating system, shower screens and vanity tops installed in their bathrooms. Home buyers will be able to choose any of the residential units with sizes ranging between 820sq.ft. to 1,340sq.ft.
Like any high rise development, home buyers will be delighted to know that most of the units will have a balcony with either the magnificent view of the KL skyline or a more relaxing view of the greens from Genting hill.
Home owners of EkoTitiwangsa will be able to enjoy a variety of hotel-like facilities that will keep the residents healthy such as the infinity and wading pool, jacuzzi, gym and sauna with changing rooms. There are also designated barbecue areas and multipurpose halls for home owners to get together as a close knit community. A surau will also be built for Muslims to pray, as well as a laundry room and also a playground for young residents to play in.
Homeowners will not need to be wary of security as the development will have a three – tier security system which includes a guard patrol, 24-hour CCTV surveillance and smart card access for its residents.
EkoTitiwangsa will be in close proximity to restaurants that give your taste buds a treat, residents can also send their children to nearby renowned colleges and popular schools or do their banking close to home, shop at retail outlets and be close to medical institutions. Those who prefer public transportation will have the Ampang LRT line and the KL monorail within walking distance of their homes.
Whilst one has concerns living close to a river, the good news is that the developer has done thorough research and design on the KL River City in such a way that the whole development will not experience flooding. The rainy season flood water will bypass the river corridor and will be channelled into a flood tunnel below the city, allowing only water at a depth of one metre to remain constant all year long, and this is done by employing a non-mechanical operational system called the ‘double decker’ that relies on gravity. The upper deck of the project will offer a breath-taking river walk experience and the water can be used for safe recreational use.
Accessibility to EkoTitiwangsa is aplenty starting with the DUKE 2 highway that will run through the podium block with direct access into the parking lot which will reduce traffic noise and pollution. EkoTitiwangsa is also well connected to other major highways such as the DUKE, DUKE phase 2, MRR2, Mahameru Highway and Sentul Link.
