Was at Bangsar late Thursday evening for a viewing with a British expat. This time, it was the Rhombus, Bangsar. For those who are not familiar with this development, it is actually located along Jalan Penaga next to The Cascadium. It is one of Benéton Properties’ pride in Bangsar after their well received ‘Bangsar Peak’.

The building is one of the most contemporary and stylish ones you’ll see around the area. It is nothing short of looking imposing and the dark themed architecture made it looked almost like a modernised version of Barad-dûr tower from LotR : The Two Towers. The sharp and planate feature of the building also did enough to distinguish itself from the rest of the condominiums around it.
There are 25 units across 13 storeys. Yes, a PH on the 13th for the big boss. Rhombus is not one of those typical condominiums around Klang Valley where you can have multiple owners from the units. This is a not-for-sale establishment and the to-let can only be managed through Benéton Properties themselves. The rental starts at RM17,000 and goes up according to the level. Most of the units offer 180 degrees of KL view and it’s remarkably close to BSC (Bangsar Shopping Complex). A very good location for expats indeed.
Myself and the tenant were particularly impressed with the workmanship of the building and its finishing from each of the units we managed to view. The lower level units are fitted with a more light-colored theme fittings and cabinets whereas the higher ones are with darker themed furnishing. It also comes with an extra huge balcony, probably 10′ X 20′?. And oh, my tenant preferred the lower units.
She and the hubby would be back again soon to finalise the rental as they need to make an urgent trip back to the UK this weekend. Well, we will arrange the necessary and when they are back, we will be ready to conclude another rental for a satisfied tenant!
On a quick note, Rhombus also won itself the 2013 Malaysia Institute of Architects Gold Award (Multiple Residential, High Rise) and the 2014 FIABCI Malaysia Property Award for Building of the Year (Residential, High Rise).
