    With 12 apartment units and 3 lifts per floor in each block, The Zest seems to be in the range of a high density development. Even though each unit comes with 2 parking bays in the podium car park, many potential property buyers doubt that there would be adequate parking space as this is a mixed development with commercial units. Apart from that, the earlier mentioned density issue would also be affected by the commercial units which would definitely have an effect on the traffic flow around the area.Basically, there are five types of layout plans to choose from at The Zest. However, when comparing the layouts, there seems to be not much of difference between them. All five types of layout plans come with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Nevertheless, it is noticeable that bedrooms 2 and 3 are quite small even though the master bedroom and living room are quite spacious. From the layout plans, it is also obvious that the developer has adopted the "open kitchen" concept for all of the units. This concept may be the latest preferred designs but it is not practical to property owners who always cook. In other words, some property owners are expected to convert the yard into a wet kitchen to cook as a more practical method to prevent the smoke from kitchen from entering the living room and bedrooms. All 12 units on each floor of The Zest share a common corridor, with type B, C, D and E units facing each other's main door. So, some property owners would not enjoy much privacy as their neighbor from the opposite unit could easily see the interior of their unit when the main door is opened. This may not be a serious issue to some property owners but to those who are more of an individualistic character, this would definitely be a factor to consider.There have been reports that the local government is planning to build an LRT station at Bandar Kinrara. The actual location of the LRT station was said to be located exactly opposite The Zest. This is definitely good news to public transportation users. However, potential property buyers of The Zest should seriously consider the noise pollution as well as increased traffic flow / traffic congestion at the area when the LRT station is constructed and open to the public. Currently it may still be too early to determine whether The Zest is a good buy or not as the construction progress is still slow at the moment. However, as one looks at the selling price with consideration that this is a freehold development which comes with full condo facilities, this property could possibly be a good buy for property investment. Furthermore, with easy accessibility and nearby public amenities (including the proposed LRT station), there is high chance for steady rental returns in the near future.

    每一层楼设有3台升降机和12个公寓单位,The Zest应该属於高密度综合项目,尽管如此,每个单位依然获分配2个车位。不少观望的投资者都怀疑这里是否拥有足够的停车位,毕竟除了住宅单位,也涵盖商用产业,加上高密度问题或多或少都会影响交通顺畅度。基本上,公寓户型分为5类,但如果仔细比较,各户型并没有太大的分别,都是属于3卧室和2浴室类型;值得注意的是,由於主人房和客厅空间开阔,以致第2和第3间房的面积变得较小。从设计图表来看,发展商为所有公寓单位设计了一个开放式厨房,这或许是生活新潮流,但对经常开伙食的住户来说并不实用。所以,可预料这等住户进来住就必定把它改装为湿厨房,以防油烟进入客厅和睡房。每一层12户都共用一条走廊,户型B、C、D和E都是两方的大门相对,因此,当大门没有紧闭时,可看到对方单位室内的情况,少了一份隐私。对某些业主来说可能不在意,但是对比较个人主义性格的住户来说,这是值得关注的一点。根据报道,政府有意在Bandar Kinrara设立轻快铁站,据称这个轻快铁站的正确位置,就设立在The Zest正对面,对于依靠公共交通的住户来说,这是天大的好消息。但对买家而言,就不得不考虑轻快铁动工期间,甚至开始对外通车时,将会加剧这一带的交通流量。目前判断The Zest是否值得投资,还是言之过早,因为轻快铁工程进展缓慢。不过,以价比货,而且还是永久地契公寓,以及拥有齐全的公寓设施,单凭这一点,还是值得一买;这里交通方便,生活机能良好,轻快铁一旦建竣,很大可能带动租金上涨。
