Astrum Ampang, the First SOHO Transit in Malaysia

Following the success of its Phase 1, Astrum Ampang opens its Phase 2’s SOHO Suites 1 for buyer’s registration. The 664 SOHO Suites 1 units are bigger in size than previous release and are in a lower density tower with bigger windows, which allow for better natural light penetration as well as higher energy efficiency.

The units are priced from RM430,000 and are ideal for young working adults, small families and investors who would like to reside or own assets located just 4km from the Petronas Twin Towers. With a gross development value of approximately RM600 million, the Phase 2 of Astrum Ampang comprises of SOHO Suites 1 and SOHO Transit 2.

Astrum Ampang derived its name from the ancient Greek language, which means star. Hence the development is heavily influenced by the cosmic celestial theme where light sources are decoratively interspersed within the development to emulate a starry sky.

The thought of stars brings to mind Astrum Ampang’s sheer height of 57 storeys, granting residents a sweeping view over the majestic Kuala Lumpur skyline, especially during the night.

The affordable units are great for those seeking a home in the metropolis where land and property prices have soared. Home buyers recognise its great potential, translating to an overwhelming 90% take-up rate for the Astrum Ampang’s SOHO Transit 1 since it was released in Q3 of 2021.

“One of the key factors for the high take-up rate is the My First Home Scheme programme that makes property ownership a seamless process for first-time home buyers. The project’s location in a strategic area and being a Transit Oriented Development is another winning factor for the very encouraging take-up rate. We foresee continued encouraging response
from the market for our SOHO Suites 1,” said James Bruyns, Chief Operating Officer, Setia Awan Group Central Region.

As its namesake suggests, the development resides in a strategic location at Jalan Ampang and Jalan Jelatek in Kuala Lumpur, being surrounded by international schools, malls, recreational parks and world class healthcare centres. But what truly makes Astrum Ampang shine is its proximity to the Kuala Lumpur city centre and the Jelatek LRT Station, which is
just 150 metres away via a proposed covered pedestrian bridge.

This coveted address is only four train stops away from the KLCC LRT station and just one stop away from a proposed MRT 3 station, broadening residents’ access to a great range of places.

With regards to connectivity, the development is well connected to the DUKE, DUKE 3, AKLEH highway and also the prominent Jalan Ampang.

The matured neighbourhood suggests a tried and true location and no stronger statement that the foreseeable future shall witness a favourable rate of capital appreciation and rental yield.

In the bustling metropolis, access to places and conveniences is oftentimes impaired by traffic congestion, taxing our time, patience, energy, and money. This problem is further intensified in the centre of the city where vehicular usage is at an all-time high.

The solution to this comes in the form of TODs or transit-oriented developments which serve to connect residents to public transportations, bypassing the city’s traffic. It is not just a matter of convenience but also as a force that creates better quality of life for the communities.

Adapting to the covid-19 pandemic, the development will have a centralised delivery area has been created. Residents will be notified and to collect items once they have been notified of the delivery. Integrating technological advancement into its product, Astrum Ampang has designated an area for drone delivery services, seen as a possible mode of future deliveries. Then there is the facial recognition system that pervades the whole development, ensuring that physical contact is minimised.
