D’Rapport Residences Location
Being located in the heart of Ampang Hilir, it’s quite safe to say that the location, well known for its rapid urbanization, is a true gem. It is no doubt that the prospective buyers would be in complete awe over the exclusivity of the area, being the major hub for expatriates and foreign workers in white-collared jobs topped off with the presence of embassies in the vicinity such as the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Embassy of Finland. This added advantage serves as an important selling point of D’Rapport Residences, which, given its sophistication, would eventually be the highlight of the area in the nearest future to come.
However, being an important site for cultural exchange and national development, Ampang Hilir has high traffic jams too especially during peak hours. This is mainly due to the rapid urbanization of the area of Ampang Hilir especially with the development of more high-end residential projects. It may not be suitable for those who prefer the peace and serenity of quiet roads but fret not dear buyers, the construction of an elevated intersection is taking place in between Jalan Ampang and Jalan Jelatek. This would definitely decrease the severity of traffic jams.
In regards to the Ampang Hilir Lake Garden, it’s currently under some fire for poor maintenance but the prospective buyers of D’Rapport Residences need not worry because there are really nice amenities provided by the developers themselves specifically curated for them.

The major highlight of D’Rapport Residences is the fact that there’s a plethora of malls and major shopping complexes to satisfy the cravings of each shopping enthusiast in the vicinity. This could be justified by the fact that it is located in close proximity to malls such as Great Eastern Mall and Ampang Point. Both of these shopping complexes serve as amazing family-friendly spots to unwind and relax after a long and tiring day at work.

D’Rapport Residences Property Analysis
D’Rapport Residences, with a total gross development value (GDV) of RM3.5 billion, consists of 1099 condominium units with built-up areas of 1108 square feet to 2238 square feet. The developers, Acmar International, China Railway Engineering Corporation (M) Sdn Bhd (CREC) and Bismarck Construction & Engineering Sdn Bhd. expect a good take-up rate due to the classical features of the property topped off with contemporary lifestyle facilities. D’Rapport Residences was completed in mid-2017.
As for the area of Ampang Hilir, and in general, Ampang is rich with diversity and full of hype and life. This is undeniably true with the presence of major entertainment outlets and equally prestigious residential projects which serve as the main landscape of the area itself. The area is perfect for those who would prefer a more urbanized outlook to life and also for prospective buyers who’d like easy access to basic amenities.
However, there are a few, but very common drawbacks to this area. The first being the fact that traffic jams are a common sight especially during peak hours. It may not be suitable for prospective residents who would prefer the peace and quietness that a sub-urban area might bring forth. These mostly unavoidable traffic jams are mainly due to the rapid property development in the vicinity as well as the mushrooming of retail outlets and projects of the sort too.
Another issue that one could see in the area is the hike in living costs. A vast majority of residents in the vicinity are foreigners and as you could see, most of the developmental projects are indeed targeted towards this group of buyers. Therefore, it is no doubt that living expenses, in comparison to other parts in the state, could be on the pricier end. Nevertheless, all of these issues are indeed quite minor due to the fact that they are quite common especially in urban cityscapes like Ampang Hilir.
One major takeaway in D’Rapport Residences would be the fact that there are luxurious amenities incorporated within an urban landscape. This is topped off with a bigger built-up area of each unit, making it an absolutely desirable choice for prospective property buyers out there. The setting of a peaceful and serene residency set against the cityscapes would appeal to urban dwellers more. This is due to the fact that these sorts of buyers would really enjoy the bustling environment of a city.
This residency would nevertheless, attract the attention of buyers who have little to no time post-working hours to unwind and relax. D’Rapport Residences, being a developmental project which focuses on providing the perfect work-life balance, has included tons of enjoyable facilities that cater to residents from all walks of life.
However, despite its vast amenities, D’Rapport Residences is indeed on the pricier end of things. With each unit priced between RM2,049,000 to RM12,017,000, it’s definitely a developmental project aimed at prospective buyers from the higher economic strata. This may be its disadvantage but nevertheless, it’s worth the buy due to the fact that it has a larger built-up size and world-class facilities provided. There is a possibility that buyers from the lower economic strata would be discouraged from buying it due to the high price tag.
The main property developers in the area of Ampang Hilir are Acmar Malaysia, Global Oriental Bhd., Land & General Bhd, and Mayland. These developers and their projects differ from one another especially in terms of their target market, unique selling point, and pricing. However, all of these companies, having built properties in Ampang Hilir, have certain expectations to live up to, especially amongst other pioneer developers and projects in the area. In this case, D’Rapport Residences wins the race due to the fact that its pricing is proportional to the facilities and amenities within the residency which are definitely world-class.
Pavilion Embassy by Global Oriental Bhd. is made up of 3 towers, consisting of 3 towers of corporate suites and 2 towers of residential suites. The units, specifically those of the residential suites, have 588 units in the 42 storey tower, whilst there are another 222 units in the 36 storey tower. Built across 5.75 acres of land, these freehold units are available in 2 sizes; 1100 square feet and 1200 square feet. These units are priced from RM 1.65 million to RM 1.8 million. In regards to the aspect ratio of the size of the units to the pricing, it’s quite clear that Pavilion Embassy offers better pricing compared to D’Rapport Residences but nevertheless, this could be countered with the fact that D’Rapport Residences provides an extensive array of facilities to its residents.
Next up is The Elements by Land & General Bhd. and Mayland. This property is indeed less pricey in comparison to D’Rapport Residences with each unit priced between a range of RM 390,000 to RM 1.2 million. Consisting of 655 units each with built-up areas from 610 square feet to 1460 square feet, this property still dims in comparison to D’Rapport Residences. This is mainly due to the fact that the units in D’Rapport Residences have a much bigger built-up area in comparison to those of The Elements. These factors, as a whole, make D’Rapport Residences all the more desirable as the top property within the vicinity of Ampang Hilir.
Below is a table to further enforce the notion that D’Rapport Residences still tops the spot in an area as competitive as Ampang:
