Overview

Legasi Kampong Bharu Overview

Perched in the heart of Malaysia’s capital, Legasi Kampong Bharu is one of the most sought after residential and commercial developments within Kuala Lumpur. Right in the mix of the bustling city, this development promises an experience like no other for city dwellers as it comes with an exquisite view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower (Menara Kuala Lumpur). Its location is also considered unique as it sits in the middle of an authentic Malay enclave, Kampung Baru, which stretches back to the early 20th century and boasts a melting pot of culture and tradition. This appeal has the ability to cut across prospective buyers from different walks of life, attracting the likes of foreigners who seek a truly Malaysian experience in the metropolis, and locals who prefer an infusion of heritage with a modern twist.

Developed by UDA Holdings, a public listed government-linked company (GLC), Legasi Kampong Bharu is made up of a 43-storey residential tower consisting of 433 apartments and 206 RUMAWIP homes, as well as a 29-storey commercial block with 83 office units. Inspired by Islamic architecture, this development comes with all the amenities needed and beyond. This includes a gymnasium, dining, and pool, to name a few, with a splash of greenery in and around its premises. Accompanied by state-of-the-art office spaces, this semi-residential development is where productivity meets serenity.


As with all other properties, the mantra of ‘location, location, location’ applies to Legasi Kampong Bharu, and to great effect. This development has easy access to a variety of food haunts, public transportation, highways, healthcare and even tertiary education. Apart from the quaint environment it holds within its bounds, prospective buyers of the Legasi Kampong Bharu development have the option of looking outward and get to any desired location on foot with ease. Being in the centre of the city where rush hour traffic can be overwhelming, this option seems to be one of the development’s main unique selling properties.

Legasi Kampong Bharu Location

Smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur, there is no doubt that Legasi Kampung Bharu’s location is one of envy for developers and residents alike. A vast majority of properties within this area are considered high-end and can be exorbitant in rent and purchase prices. This is due to the demand from expatriates who prefer living in the city, where commercial enterprises are abundant. The city centre also has a reputation of housing foreign delegates on a regular basis at several world-renowned hotels peppered around its landscape, inadvertently contributing to the overall exclusiveness in its air.

Despite being a traditional Malay cultural hub in the city, many Kampung Baru folk of olde have resisted development in the area to preserve the ethnic Malay lifestyle. As such, the surrounding areas at the foot of this development may appear underdeveloped with several traditional simplistic Malay stalls lining the streets. In a way, this setup possesses its own charm as it is deeply rooted in culture and tradition, providing an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Apart from the issue with development, Kampung Baru is flanked by major city roads which are constantly congested during the day and night. This is mainly caused by poor city planning which has led to narrow roads, and lack of law enforcement on vehicle owners who park along the roads willy-nilly, further compounding congestion.

However, this development owes a lot of its benefits to strategic location. Nestled on the banks of the Klang River, Legasi Kampong Bharu is located along Jalan Raja Muda Musa which opens into Jalan Raja Abdullah, further connecting to Jalan Sultan Ismail and other major city roads such as Jalan Ampang and Jalan Tun Razak. It is within walking distance of several locations such as Quill City Mall, the iconic mosque – Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru, as well as Light Rail Transit (LRT) and Monorail stations, providing incredibly easy access to hotspots in and around the big city.

Connectivity

At this point, it can be worrying for those who fancy a drive out of the Legasi Kampong Bharu development. Fret not, as it is located beside one of the most connected highways in the city centre, Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH). It is the first elevated highway to be built in Malaysia and stretches across 7.9km to ease traffic congestion in the nation’s capital. AKLEH begins kilometre zero at the Jalan Raja Abdullah entrance from the Jalan Sultan Ismail interchange which is a stone’s throw away from the parking lot exit of Legasi Kampong Bharu. Other major highways which are easily accessible include Jalan Kuching, which is part of the Kuala Lumpur Inner Ring Road and Kuala Lumpur-Rawang Highway, and Jalan Tun Razak, which is part of the Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring 1. While on wheels, locations such as Quill City Mall and Suria KLCC are 4 and 10 minutes away respectively. Another prime attraction in the city which is minutes away from Legasi Kampong Bharu is KLCC Park, a 50-acre public garden located opposite Suria KLCC. It is home to various waterfalls, fountains, cascades and reflecting pools which offer quite a unique experience in the midst of towering skyscrapers.

If you prefer to get around on foot and avoid traffic congestion during rush hours, Legasi Kampong Bharu offers access to several public transportations such as the LRT and Monorail. The Kampung Baru LRT station is part of the Kelana Jaya Line which serves other major cities such as Subang Jaya and many others around the Petaling Jaya region. The Medan Tuanku Monorail station, on the other hand, serves intercity stops such as Jalan Imbi, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Raja Chulan, and Titiwangsa, to name a few. This is ideal for those who wish to experience life and work in the city without having to brave the notorious rush-hour traffic congestion.

Convenience

Arguably the largest selling point for the Legasi Kampong Bharu development, connectivity is certainly not an issue seeing as it is located in the middle of the bustling city. Convenient stores and food haunts are ubiquitously available on foot at the base of this development. Treat yourself to a variety of signature Malay cuisines such as sate, gulai kambing, tom yam, ikan bakar, nasi kukus and many more around the cultural haven that is Kampung Baru. If you are looking for something other than the local cuisine, head on out of the enclave on foot for western delights such as steaks and caviars.

This development is perfect for families and those working away from home as it provides access to other important facilities such as healthcare and education. Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) and Kuala Lumpur General Hospital (GH) are within close proximity to tend to your healthcare needs. Located 1.5km and 1.4km away respectively, both of these institutes are known for delivering quality service and care to patients. Equally reputable, the Al Islam Specialist Hospital (formerly known as Kampung Baru Medical Centre) is located only 450 metres away. The Kampung Bharu Primary School is also approximately a 5-minute drive from the development. For those seeking to further their studies at a higher learning institution, they certainly can do so at Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL), which is an 11-minute walk from Legasi Kampong Bharu.

Clearly, the developers of this project have considered convenience to be a main part of the dwelling experience. Below is the complete list of amenities and facilities within close proximity of the Legasi Kampong Bharu development.

Legasi Kampong Bharu Floor Plan

The Legasi Kampong Bharu development consists of two parts, with the first being its 43-storey residential apartment. Type A units in the residential apartment range are divided into Type A1 units which are 1,679 sq ft (3+1 beds, 4 baths), and Type A2 units which are 1,907 sq ft (3+1 beds, 4 baths). There are a total of 33 units for each subcategory with the option of a spectacular view of the Petronas Twin Towers. Type A3, A4, and A5 are penthouses with built-up size of 2714 sq ft, 1904 sq ft, and 2969 sq ft respectively. However, there is only one unit available for each penthouse. Meanwhile, there are a total of 364 Type B units which are 950 sq ft each (3 beds, 2 baths), with the option of the stunning view as well. The RUMAWIP homes (Type C) span 807 sq ft but are only made available to qualified individuals under a program initiated by the Federal Territories Ministry. At the time of writing, Type C has completely sold out.

Menara Legasi, which is its 29-storey office tower, consists of 83 units of office spaces which truly embodies the aesthetics of its culturally condensed location in the form of its Islamic inspired design. The office spaces here are perfect for companies who wish to be centrally located, with a mesmerizing panoramic view of the city skyline.

Residents and those working at Menara Legasi can expect more choices for food and amenities in due time as the development also consists of one-storey of 43 retail lots ranging from 78 sq ft in size to 7,169 sq ft. This is ideal for entrepreneurs and investors who are seeking profitable businesses at a prime location. Below are the unit layouts for Type A1, A2, and B. For layout dimensions of all types, please refer to the Floor Plan section.

Based on these dimensions, there seems to be a unit fit for every type of resident – families, couples, entrepreneurs, and even those who prefer to live alone. Type A1 would be more suited to smaller families or couples who want to grow their family unit minimally, while Type A2 would best suit larger family units or even those who wish to share the space with housemates. Type B, on the other hand, would be best for individuals who prefer to live on their own. Whatever your choice, rest assured there’s more to the unit in the form of facilities and amenities.

Legasi Kampong Bharu Facilities and Amenities

At Legasi Kampong Bharu, residents can enjoy a host of amazing facilities and amenities such as cafe, kindergarten, infinity pool, gymnasium, grocery store, communal barbeque pit, and a herb garden. This caters to residents with various lifestyles, such as those who exercise after returning from work, or those who simply want to spend quality time with the family through alternative activities within the comfort of their own living spaces.

The entrance of the building is equipped with round-the-clock security and CCTV monitoring. Each resident is provided with an access key card for walk-ins, which also opens up the security arm for drive-ins. All of these elements may seem trivial on the surface, but it is what provides security and comfortable living to residents of the property.

Legasi Kampong Bharu Property Analysis

The Legasi development project which sits on 1.157-hectare of land in Kampung Baru has a GDV of approximately RM529 million. With a 30% total unit allocation reserved for Bumiputeras, the project is expected to gain traction among Kampung Baru natives due to its affordability.

Target Market

The property market is believed to be undergoing a cloudy period as there seems to be more supply than demand. Despite this situation, property prices still remain high, creating what is known as a property bubble. However, this has imposed little effect on most high-rise residential projects. Therefore, it can be said that the Legasi development project will cater to urban home seekers as its prices remain relatively affordable. Apart from the Kampung Baru locals, upper-middle-class working adults who sought to cut back on commuting costs into the city can comfortably afford Legasi’s lower-range units. This is even more plausible if the cost to rent or buy the unit is shared with a friend, co-worker or spouse.

Seeing as most apartments in central Kuala Lumpur are commonly shared, Legasi could also be targeting prospective buyers for investment purposes. These investors are able to keep their rent low due to the lower cost per unit and ensure a steady flow of income.

Competitor Analysis

wdt_ID Name Price Price PSF Built-up Area (sq ft) Tenure No. of Units
1 Legasi Kampong Bharu, Kuala Lumpur From RM716,200 RM754 950 - 1907 Leasehold 765
2 Datum Jelatek, Keramat From RM640,000 RM1,164 550 - 1645 Leasehold 708
3 STAR Residences, KLCC From RM1 mil RM1,600 625 - 2262 Freehold 557

Compared to other notable projects in the vicinity, this project seems to give more bang for your buck. A similar project (STAR Residences) which is slightly closer to the city centre, with the same dimensions, seems to have minimum-price units that are more exorbitant than Legasi’s highest range. Further out of the city and into the Keramat region, projects such as Datum Jelatek would cost significantly less than Legasi’s, however, accessibility into the city centre and other parts of greater Kuala Lumpur are compromised with limited public transportation and road access.

It is also important to note that Legasi’s cost per unit compared to those that are as close to the city centre are much lower. Considering the pushback from locals with regards to developing Kampung Baru, it can be summed up that this development is seen as a method of improving lives for locals around said area. Strategic location, as well as accessibility to public transportation and major highways are catalysts in the socio-economic development of Kampung Baru residents.

Price per sq ft for this development begins from RM754, with a built-up size of 950-1,907 sq ft for its residential range. The project is expected to be completed by 2020.

Summary

In conclusion, the Legasi Kampong Bharu project is one for the books. It is a development where the past meets the present and assures a truly unique experience living in the great city of Kuala Lumpur.

Adorned with amenities and facilities of the highest standard, this project will surely pique the interest of investors and city-dwellers alike. Being right in the middle of it all and with so much to do and see, it is sure to invigorate all senses of the human body.
