Most of you haven’t seen the photo of Sunway Velocity below, and definitely none of you (including yours truly) have never seen it in naked eyes…. yet.

For a very simple reason that Sunway Velocity is still in development, and this is what it is supposed to look like in just a few short years. This place is going to change the whole landscape between KL and Cheras. Do read..

Sunway Velocity

First of all, location.

Sunway Velocity is strategically located right between KL and Cheras, just 3.8 kilometers from KLCC and smacked between Jalan Cheras and Jalan Peel, and a mere 10 minutes walk from Maluri LRT station.

The most recognizable landmark as of current is a Jusco, Carrefour, and of course the eating places at Jalan Peel. Already a pretty mature area, but one that isn’t exactly very appealing. On completion, this project is going to change the whole area much like how Sunway Pyramid transformed the whole Subang and PJS area.

Instead of just building another shopping mall, Sunway Velocity is an integrated project, there’s service apartments, shops, offices, a modern shopping complex over 1,000,000 sq. feet, and even a pretty big central park over 2 acres – a much needed green lung.

Sunway Velocity showroom

The very first phase of the project consists of a dozen shop units, offices, and a service apartment with 264 units (915 standard – 3208 sq ft duplex). The apartment of course, comes with all the usual amenities such as swimming pool, gym, jacuzzi, sauna, cafeteria, security, etc, but those are not the only selling points.

There’ll also be the park, the attached shopping mall, and to me, one of the more interesting feature – the environmental deck – a walkway connecting the mall, service apartment, central park, offices, and shops with outdoor dining area that are open only to foot traffic.

Sorta like The Street at Curve, except elevated on 1st floor, and much grander in scale. Imagine having that right downstairs where you stay, pretty interesting isn’t it?

Second phase of the project will be the Sunway Velocity mall, a much needed high class shopping complex in Cheras area. The 1 mil sq. feet size is  a good size I think.

The mall is located about 400 meters away from Maluri LRT station, in comparison, Pavilion is about 300+ meters away from the closest Monorail station. There’s also pretty good accessibility from major roads and highways too (there’s gonna be over 5000 car park bays available)

Sunway Velocity service apartment

We also checked out the service apartment show units. The design’s pretty good, and I particularly like the fact that they only have 2 rooms for the 900+ square feet unit, too many developments try to sell by the number and packed in 3 rooms in sub 1000 sq. ft. units and made everything far too small.

Now if imagine if you can stay in a place and have the ability to take the elevator downstairs to do everything you need!

I believe some people might have an aversion to any development especially one that’s going to transform and area we have fond memories of, but I do believe that this one is a positive change and a step to the right direction. I can’t wait for this to get completed, now if only I can get a big discount for the apartment, emmm….

By the way do check out the facebook page of Sunway Velocity too.

    Oh that area! Used to work in Taman Maluri 10 years ago so quite familiar with this place!
    Did you buy any property in Sunway Velocity?? I was thinking to invest… hopefully the price still has not skyrocketed!

    Sounds like a project similar to Mah Sing Group’s own integrated project, Icon City.

    It’ll change the image of the Cheras side, hopefuly for the better. With so many residents over there, makes sense to inject a bit more life into the area. Apparently, a lot of locals there head out somewhere, anywhere, for the weekends.

    Hey KY: Somehow, i feel that for a service apartment in Cheras to cost RM500 psf, it is abit on the higher side. What do you think?

    u sure about this? there are pretty much ‘high class’ projects in cheras and i can say none is successful, hope this wont be one. and also, the road+jam there is terrible……unless they build some new roads…..it would take a miracle since all the roads nearby did not change for the past 20yrs

      kenny lim: well i’d say taman segar is pretty high class and pretty successful, but you do have a point about the roads, I think they’re doing some tunnels and such that go straight into the project (think pyramid)

        oppss…except thm segar area. tmn segar is successful as it was considered one of the nearest place to shop for most cheras residents, only cinema there and also, it has been there for the past 30yrs. phoenix plaze once housed isetan but it was closed in less than a yr…..well, i would say it was the locations. while the jln peel does not have much residential area, the queens park is one of the best example, of all the hype and advertisement….it still the same. the road conditions+jam is still one of the hurdles for this…..also the pgrm, they have starbucks n etc but it was quiet even during the day. hope it this project works or else it will becomes another UE3….

          kenny lim: yeah, UE3 was a failure but they’re now changing that to a huge DIY centre, hopefully that works out well.

            I’m kinda agreed with KennyL, ppl will have many other options to consider if such Svc Apt in that jam area selling at half a Mil & above…
            Another doubts is how this Velocity Mall going to attract ppl there? Since it’s quite near to the city center, which I think ppl will rather drive to a more happening malls such as TimeSquare, Sg.Wang, Pavillion, or even further up to KLCC & etc, think Sunway Management should work out something on this key point, else it might end up the same failure with the nearby UE3 Mall…

    sunway city remains their ranking in the edge, being the top 3 property developer in msia. Great effort they have put in. Always come out with promising projects like velocity. Thumbs up!
