AnalysisEverything is near to perfect for Katana II, its contemporary urban design, its location, its low density feel, its exclusivity – but the main problem is its price. It is tagged at RM1,600 psf, and with the minimum size of 2,900 sf, we are talking about the cheapest unit is RM4.64 million. At this price, it is impossible to get decent return from rental. How about capital appreciation? At similar price, one can almost get any top and super luxury properties such as One KL, Binjai 8 and Pavilion Residences.
