The ViPod KLCC building at 6 Kia Peng Road is the newest condominium project of Malaysian retail estate developer Monoland. Situated between the Kuala Lumpur City Centre and the Bukit Bintang district, its collection of suites offers potential residents a comfortable central point from which to explore many of Kuala Lumpur’s liveliest areas. The two side wings of the tower stand at 41 stories while the middle is three stories shorter. Guests and occupants receive concierge service and reception at the ground level, and conference rooms, offices and a business lounge are also provided to meet professional needs. Information about this development has been kept closely guarded leading up to and including the building’s completion; however, prospective buyers can still learn more on ViPod KLCC.
1—3-bedroom suites are accessed by the three groups of three lobby elevators, and they are currently for sale with the following dimensions:
✤ 1 BR: 635 sq. ft.
✤✤ 2 BR: 793 sq. ft.
✤✤✤ 3 BR: 1,350 sq. ft.
These suites are clustered together with other similar units in either groups of three or four depending on the buyer’s preference. Each resident is also allowed a single permanent parking space. Biometric locks provide a powerful layer of security for residents along with cards and CCTV cameras in key locations. Premium floor tiles in the suites use solid timber, travertine, marble and fritted glass. Bathrooms feature rain-style shower heads, whirlpool island bathtubs, and designer toilets. The outer walls in each suite consist of a continuous array of 10-foot-tall panels throughout each suite.
Since these windows even include the bathrooms, some potential buyers are finding that this design may strain the prospects of a purchase somewhat. As is often the case in a residential high-rise, the ViPod’s clusters are likely to prove more popular and more expensive on higher levels. Major attractions such as the Petronas Towers are not easily seen when on the lower half of the building or even at an unfavorable angle, and what’s worse is that the fully visible windows can allow strangers on lower floors to see what’s happening in a ViPod resident’s bathroom from the neighboring Menara Pinang.
The ViPod also offers some of its occupants exclusive access to a luxurious rooftop space. The Sky Club includes a spa, a gym, a large pool, a bar and a banquet hall with a large table. The Sky Club is inaccessible to the outer public and access is counted as an additional expense that occupants can choose to pay. For those that do purchase a pass to the roof, however, the space has a relaxing design with an impressive view of the KL skyline. Other properties may not have the exclusive leisure accommodations that the other developers offer that are on the same level as the Sky Club.
