One Cochrane Residences epitomise the convenience of urban living without hassles
The clockwork life in the metropolis is fast-paced, busy and taxing. Most city folks endure traffic congestions and vehicular noises for the sake of being near their working places. Then there are the high-density residential projects that inexorably attract crowds of people, making privacy a valuable commodity.
Areas further away provide that much-needed peace of mind, but often lack the accommodation that only the city could give. Hence, people are always in the search for that elusive home, which straddles the sweet spot between a tranquil ambience and a distance near enough to experience the perks of urban living.
One Cochrane Residences by Boustead Properties ticks all these boxes, and more with its low density make up of only 448 units. The development hosts two 37-storey towers, with only six units per floor to maintain exclusivity and privacy. At this height, One Cochrane poses a commanding presence in the area, not forgetting the unparalleled view it grants over the Kuala Lumpur skyline.
Further on, its north-south orientation reduces direct sunlight into the units to prevent heat gain. Also, the building is serviced by four passenger lifts and one dedicated stretcher lift to reduce wait time. Since One Cochrane is located in No.1 Jalan Cochrane, the name is an apt one.
The development sits on 3.7 acres of freehold land, and its proximity to major projects such as the Tun Razak Exchange and Bandar Malaysia also speaks volumes of its future potential for capital appreciation and rental yield. Besides, One Cochrane is merely 4.2km southeast of Kuala Lumpur City Centre and surrounded by a mature neighbourhood with various amenities.
Lifestyle needs are addressed at the neighbouring Ikea Cheras or MyTown Shopping Centre, and there is also the nearby golf course, medical facilities, banks, parks and international schools. As a transit-oriented development, One Cochrane is visualised as a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use community centred around high-quality rail transportation.
It is just 150m away from the Cochrane MRT station, and from there, the Tun Razak MRT station is on the next stop, with Bukit Bintang only two stops away. Residents can easily commute to the city centre or other prime locations and localities within Klang Valley as the line is integrated with myriad rail nodes such as KTM, ERL and LRT.
This feature allows residents to effectively bypass the traffic congestion that hampers life in the city. With regards to the units offered, they come in practical layouts featuring three-metre ceiling height at selected areas, eight ft interior doors, a yard, large windows, and expansive balconies. Engineered timber floor is provided in each bedroom and study room.
Also, units come in seven configurations, with built-up ranging from 926 to 1,227 sq ft, and one to three bedrooms. Air conditioning units are also provided for the dining area and all the bedrooms. The bathrooms are almost fully furnished with hot water storage, shower screen, vanity top wash basin, and towel rail. Each unit is apportioned two to three car parks.
Further on, the development comes with an automated waste collection system, also known as a Pneumatic waste conveying system, which is a better way to dispose of the waste. In terms of security, the master bedroom and living area possess a panic button to alert the relevant authorities.
A video intercom is mounted on the wall on each unit as a visual recognition of visitors. Moreover, the development is protected by a three-tier security system which involves CCTV surveillance, 24 hours guard patrol, perimeter fencing and access control from parking to the unit itself. Concerning connectivity, One Cochrane is linked to major highways such as the MEX, SMART, DUKE, AKLEH and MRR2.
Connections to main roads include Jalan Tun Razak, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sungai Besi and Jalan Loke Yew. All things considered, the harmony among the elements of living, playing and work makes One Cochrane a truly balanced development for all.
