Be it retail experience, grocery shopping, leisure activities, education, recreation or access to premier healthcare facilities, everything is available just a stone’s throw away from Alinea Suites. On top of it, the development itself offers a multitude of facilities, with an entire level dedicated as the facilities podium so that residents can enjoy their time off without the hassle of travelling outside the premises. The property offers metropolitan living within a compact space, making it an ideal choice for young adults who enjoy urban living.
Alinea Suites consist of SOHO units with a built-up area of approximately 441 ssizeq. ft. and a selling price of RM327,000 – RM377,000. The compact size of the units and the affordable starting price indicates that this property is targeted primarily at single, working individuals or first-time homeowners. The communal living concept is also another addition targeted at attracting young adults who seek co-working space as well as a living space to connect with other individuals. The transit-oriented SOHO development is also Airbnb-ready as it comes fully furnished complete with furniture and fittings, suggesting that the suites are also targeted at those who are seeking to purchase the units for investment purposes.. It can also be transformed to a stylish workspace as the location is strategic and convenient with easy access to public transportation, eateries, malls and healthcare.
Shah Alam is booming with a multitude of developments including many SOHO concept residential developments and for the purpose of comparison, three developments with similar factors such as land tenure, built-up area and price were selected. All three developments are located nearby Alinea Suites whereby Plaza Azalea is the closest at 550 m away while Vista Alam SOHO is 1.1 km away and Studio Fourteen is about 1.2 km away. All three competitor residential developments have been completed in 2014 and 2016, respectively and hold the same land tenure as Alinea Suites, which is leasehold. The properties are also all located within the same vicinity thus they all have access to similar amenities within the area.
In terms of built-up area, Alinea Suites offers the most compact sizing in comparison to its competitors but this is because Studio Fourteen offers 2- and 3-bedroom units as well while Plaza Azalea offers duplex suites for business purposes. Studio Fourteen offers the lowest density while on the other hand, Alinea Suites provides the highest price per sq. ft. Vista Alam has the highest density as the 576 units are only for SOHO units and the development also has 2 blocks of 2- and 3-bedroom units, bringing the overall total units to 1,133. Both Vista Alam and Plaza Azalea have mixed residential and business units and due to the convenience, more units are used for business purposes.
On the whole, Alinea Suites is the best choice in terms of value for the price considering the facilities, convenience and security. It is important to note that all the other developments are older as they were completed several years prior while Alinea is a brand new project, thus the design, architecture and concept will be more suited to the current needs and demands. First-time homeowners may also prefer a newer development, thus justifying the higher price per sq. ft. Also, Alinea Suites offers more privacy as a home or living space as it has a medium density with just 480 units while the competitors, particularly Vista Alam and Plaza Azalea, have more units utilised as business premises.
