The Manhattan, Residen 61 Raja Chulan
The Manhattan, Residen 61 is situated along the busy business street of Jalan Raja Chulan and is strategically located at the heart of the city centre with easy access to various amenities such as the Bukit Bintang shopping belt, 5-star hotels, alfresco dining at the vibrant Changkat Bukit Bintang, The Royal Selangor Golf club and Prince Court Medical Centre. The development also enjoys excellent connectivity via the Raja Chulan monorail station. The subject property is developed by United Engineers Limited (UEL)’s subsidiary, Peninsular Smart Sdn Bhd. UEL has a strong presence in Singapore with many commercial, residential and mixed development projects completed, and this venture will be their first foray into Malaysia as a property developer.
The development has been positioned to cater to the needs of both investors and own-stay purchasers. On levels 10-23, the units come fully furnished and equipped with a guaranteed rental return (GRR) that will be managed by Park Avenue, UEL’s hospitality brand. Surrounded by some 30 prominent office towers within walking distance, the development is in a catchment area which will provide a large pool of tenants after the 2-year GRR period.
The freehold, 30-storey tower accommodates 129 residences. Unit sizes range from 700 sq ft – 1,300 sq ft and come in several configurations – 1 bedroom, 1+study, 2 bedroom, 2+study and 3 bedrooms. There are 16 loft units on the top two levels enjoying a panoramic view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. Units on the upper levels of 23A-29 will come partially furnished, giving own-stay buyers the opportunity to personalize their homes to their own liking. Facilities are located on levels 8 and Level 9, and include an infinity pool, gymnasium, multi-purpose hall and an outdoor café. A rooftop garden at level 30 furnishes a conducive environment for residents to enjoy themselves, rejuvenate and relax. Designed as a green building, one of its green features is the double glazed tinted windows, minimising the effects of noise and heat while at the same time lowering utility costs.
