Astrum Ampang has multiple core selling points. A key point for Astrum Ampang definitely lies in its location. Strategically situation in Jalan Jelatek, Astrum is simply moments away from KLCC, Kuala Lumpur city centre and other major townships. With plenty of interconnecting roads and highways, travelling from one town to another is a smooth sail.

However, with the nearby efficient rail transportation system, residents will have a second alternative for travelling.

The target demographic for Astrum Ampang is between the ages of 28 and 40, as well as investors. Astrum Ampang was designed to be functional. The SoHo also targets the B40 and M20 income groups. As a part of Setia Awan’s corporate social responsibility, Astrum Ampang’s units start at the lower range of prices, RM230 000. The purpose of the homes being priced much lower than most of its peers around the area is to provide quality and affordable homes, especially for low-to-mid income families and first-time homebuyers.
Astrum Ampang is also the first of its kind, a transit-oriented development SoHo. It is ideal for the working class and professionals who work in Kuala Lumpur and prefer using public transportation to commute around. Astrum Ampang encourages the use of trains to reduce carbon footprint and sustainable growth.
Astrum Ampang is located in the mature township of Ampang Jaya. Naturally, it is surrounded by condominiums and likewise high-rises, such as One Jelatek Condominium, Suria Jelatek Residence, and Datum Jelatek. These residents were picked as competitors due to their close proximity to Astrum Ampang.
|1||Astrum Ampang||280 sqft||RM230 000||RM820||租赁||2026|
|2||One Jelatek Condominium||RM650 000||RM419||永久产权||2010|
|4||Suria Jelatek Residence||RM588 000||RM414||租赁||2010|
|5||Datum Jelatek||RM700 000||RM1163||租赁||2020|
Astrum Ampang is the latest addition to the neighbourhood. Nevertheless, compared to its peers, Astrum’s price tag sits in the medium range. The price per square foot for One Jelatek Condominium and Suria Jelatek Residence is lower at RM414 – RM419, mostly due to being considerably older. Although at first glance, Astrum Ampang might seem high dense compared to the others, potential buyers should keep in mind that the units are designed for single occupancy, couples and small families. Therefore, the total number of residents would be relatively small and appropriate for the units in Astrum Ampang. Relative to its peers, Astrum’s price PSF and year of establishment bear the hallmarks of being an outstanding newcomer.
