IT was just six months ago when Mah Sing Group Bhd acquired a 5.47-acre leasehold parcel next to Kepong Metropolitan Park in Kuala Lumpur to launch its second residential development, M Luna which today, has recorded 5,500 registrations for the properties.
M Luna comprises two 57-storey towers (Tower A & Tower B) with 1,672 serviced apartments in total. They are due for completion by 2024.
Registration of interest started in October, while the grand opening of the sales gallery, officiated by Malaysia’s Special Envoy to China, YB Tan Kok Wai, took place yesterday morning.
Mah Sing founder and group managing director, Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum said, leveraging on the group's proven track-record and experience as a property developer for the past 25 years, he is optimistic that M Luna will be well received in the market on the back of its attractive pricing points, coupled with its lifestyle amenities and surrounding infrastructure.
M Luna is located 3.3km to the upcoming Metro Prima MRT2 Station, which is targeted to start operations in 2021, 4km from the Taman Wahyu KTM station and 5km from Lakeville Residence in Taman Wahyu, Batu Caves.
Lakeville Residence is the first project by Mah Sing in the Kepong area. It features six residential towers and 10 two-storey shops. The project was launched four years ago and is 99 per cent taken up.
The first four towers have been completed and handed over. The remaining two towers will be completed next year.
"M Luna is our latest injection into the market, further reinforcing our commitment to continue to build affordably priced products of good quality at strategic locations to meet the needs of buyers’ today," said Leong.
The project has an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM705 million, and is expected to offer good margins to Mah Sing. The proposed most affordable units would have built up from 700 sq ft and indicatively priced from RM385,000 or RM550 per square foot. The units range from two to four bedrooms with 1-2 car parks per unit.
Mah Sing is targeting first-time homebuyers, upgraders, working professionals, young couples, young families and investors from the surrounding neighbourhoods like Taman Wahyu, Taman Selayang Jaya, Sentul, Batu Caves, Bandar Menjalara, Segambut and Taman Seri Gombak.
