Located some 3-4 km away from the Kuala Lumpur CBD, Maluri, Cheras is quite possibly the closest suburb to KL’s Golden Triangle. Formerly home to government quarters and residential developments, as well as playing host to JKR workshops and depots, the recent revitalisation of the area also makes it an ideal location for investment amongst the Chinese community. Several property developers have made their mark here, including Sunway Velocity, One Cochrane, and Laville Kuala Lumpur.
Amongst the various residential and integrated developments in the area is Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB)’s 49-storey UNA @ Peel (UNA), comprising 316 serviced apartments. The mid-density UNA is a stone’s throw away from the Sunway Velocity shopping mall and Sunway Velocity Medical Centre, as well as MYTown, an 18-acre family and lifestyle shopping centre, with the largest IKEA nationwide as one of its primary anchor tenants.
Other facilities in close proximity to UNA include several higher educational institutions, international schools, and other landmarks such as the Royal Selangor Golf Club, Bukit Bintang, KLCC, IKEA, MyTown and AEON Taman Maluri. UNA is also within a short walking distance to the Cochrane MRT station, as well as the Maluri MRT & LRT interchange station.
UNA is the brainchild of the award-winning property developer SDB.
A multiple winner of the FIABCI Prix d’Excellence Awards and The EdgeProp Malaysia’s Best Managed Property Awards, SDB prides itself on producing niche property developments across Malaysia and Singapore, featuring innovative concepts and designs.
SDB described UNA as ‘drawing inspiration from the early skyscrapers in New York’, with lofty arches and open, sheltered terraces.
SDB has also thoughtfully designed UNA to be earthquake-resistant, with screened co-working areas available on its pool and the sky decks. Individual apartments are designed to provide expansive living space, a balcony with practical uses, and multiple large window panels, allowing for natural light penetration and ventilation.
Already, UNA has piqued the interest of prospective investors and it is learnt that buyers have been heading over to SDB to submit their deposit cheques.
Its lower density makes the development feel more exclusive, as does its neighbourhood.
