Raising the bars of liveability in KL north
Property developer JL99 Group is looking confidently towards the future, knowing that its presence will set a precedent for other developments. Its latest project 99 Residence, which will take up seven acres of a 17-acre site in KL North, is already taking up a commanding position over its neighbourhood.
The development comprises 1,421 residential units spread evenly over four towers, offering four luxurious designs. Value over money makes a prominent emphasis here as the units have built-ups ranging from 900 sq ft to 1,380 sq ft, with affordable prices below RM500 per sq ft.
To distinguish 99 Residence, JL99 Group chairman Datuk Seri Jeff Lee said the team had incorporated an infinity pool at the top deck. This is a significant selling point as he claimed that such a facility is usually reserved for higher-end developments.
Always mindful of giving back to society, Lee has set aside 120,000 sq ft of net saleable area, equivalent to RM60mil in value, for the residents. The space will be transformed into a larger common area. The developer is also generous with giving additional space like providing walkways that are eight feet in width instead of the standard five to six feet.
Depending on the type of unit, there will be a provision of two to three parallel parking bays. The units come in configurations of three to four bedrooms and two to three bathrooms, respectively. Not only that, the homes come semi-furnished with free shower screen, water heater, basin cabinet and mirror with storage for all bathroom, air conditioning units, smart lock, door grill at the entrance door and kitchen cabinet with a hob.
Also, the developer is running a RM3mil-worth-of-prizes lucky draw campaign including three houses, five cars, cash and more. Lee added that the development strive to achieve a higher score in QLASSIC, ensuring a quality home with fewer defects. Ramping up the liveability factors are 48 luxury facilities, scattered across three tiers—the park, lagoon and sky. Among them are the aqua playground, jogging trail, badminton court, sky gym, 50m-length infinity sky pool, lagoon pool and squash court.
They are well-planned and designated into different zones to cater to all the age groups. For corporate social responsibility purposes, JL99 Group has also created a mini zoo nearby. The 99 Wonderland Park is a mini zoo housing thousands of animals, with some loaned from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks Peninsular Malaysia, such as the Malayan tapir, sun bear and saltwater crocodile.
Lee said that up to date, the company had spent about RM48mil on improving the facilities at the park. For convenience purposes, the development also provides free shuttle services to the nearest mass rapid transit (MRT) and train stations. Connectivity is enhanced through the building of a private link bridge access from MRR2 to the project, giving residents ease of entry into and exit the development. The flyover is slated for completion before the handover of 99 Residence by 2023.
Location-wise, 99 Residence is situated right beside the Batu Caves roundabout, MRR2 and Jalan Kuching, and is a mere 2km distance away from the MRT station. It is also easily accessible via the DUKE Highway, Karak Highway and the Latar Highway. Surrounding the project are a wealth of amenities, ranging from educational hubs such as SMK Taman Selayang, SJK (C) Kheow Bin, UITM Selayang and The International School@Desa Park City, all within a 10km radius.
The Selayang Hospital marks a distance of approximately 4km away, not considering the multitude of neighbouring shopping malls and commercial centres. Proximity to the Kepong Metropolitan Lake Garden allows health-conscious residents a place to exercise.
