What’s the buzz around Damansara lately? Well, most of us have heard or seen the mega-developments around Pusat Bandar Damansara (approx. around 38,750 sqm land) for the past few years where the originally built government offices were demolished entirely to pave way for the new projects, namely the Pavilion Damansara Heights and DC Residency by Guocoland (M) Berhad respectively. Since last year July, the DC Residency luxury condominiums were opened for sale. Apparently, the whole Block A was fully sold during its launch and now, we have a few units of Block B to cover.
Damansara City- or DC in short, is a RM 2.5M integrated luxury commercial development strategically located at its epicenter. Spread across 8.5 acres of prime land, DC will be seen as the address to transform the locale and setting a new benchmark for exclusivity.
The 6.02ha Damansara City, which is being built, is the first high density mixed development in the Damansara Heights area, comprising two Grade A DC Corporate office towers,Sofitel – a French five-star boutique hotel, DC Mall – a four-storey retail mall, and of course, DC Residency – a 28 storey residential towers from the northwest of DC.
The 2 towers housing 370 luxury-serviced apartments rise majestically from 8.5 acres of freehold prime land. DC Residency, which carries a price tag of RM1,600 per sq ft, comprises one- to four-bedroom units and penthouses of contemporary design. The built-up area ranges from 938 to 3,056 sq ft. About half the 370 units are under 2,000 sq ft.
Each unit is furnished and equipped with designer appliances and premium fittings from renowned European brands – Poggenpohl, Miele, Gessi Emporio and Catalano, while the facilities include an Olympic-length salt-water infinity pool, an aqua gymnasium and a regular gymnasium, a multi-purpose hall, function rooms, private dining rooms, a barbecue area and a mini-theatre.
The main lobby gives a charming feel of a classy hotel and looked even better at night when the partly hidden warm lights were fully lit. There is a 4-tiered security point between the entrance- all the way to the main door. It also features private lifts.
For the larger type units available in Tower B, the 2,982sqft (3BR+1+1) layout is one of the most deserving of units to distinguish the stylishly elegant concept of DC among the rest of the developments. Even the slight curve at each end of the unit don’t seem to make it less appealing. It only adds to the graceful sonata of glass and beams.
The 2 twin rooms are exactly mirror-imaged rooms that should be able to satiate even the most space-hungry owners looking to max-out the size of their secondary and tertiary rooms. With built-in wardrobes, they only have to shop for matching accompaniments to complete the rooms.
The master bedroom is elegant on its own with the same slight bend of the structure as would the living hall. But given the size of the room, even a king size bed looked queenish. While having a corner for sleeping and lounging, the owners also have another corner solely for their wardrobe and bathroom. Nothing much to say here. Just imagine a room that you can stay in for half a day without stepping out of it. That’s how ‘sufficient’ the room is.
Lastly, the one most unforgettable area is the family hall. It is shown here in one of the shots of the unit (try to locate it). This is not exactly huge, but it is spacious enough to set up a spot with a totally different mood. Kudos to the id guys here, the show unit layout did more than capturing my attention. It made me feel like having one right now, at home! Not to keep this post too long, we will skip the kitchen and the rest of the areas. They are all marvelous in their own territory.
Not to keep this post too long, we will skip the kitchen and the rest of the areas. They are all marvelous in their own territory. Before we end, just want to highlight the pool and the little theater. These are nice little touches to stay in the fight for creativity among the rest. Not that it will feature heavily in most owners’ weekend activities, it certainly adds exclusivity to the facility made available.
To anyone who is genuinely interested, please contact me for further information and a little tour at DC Residency. I’ll be more than happy to accommodate! Till the next review, take care and a happy weekend!
