KUALA LUMPUR: Villamas’ meta_city status in Seri Kembangan is set to soar with international brands coming onboard the integrated development.
For the hotel component, Villamas has roped in international hotel franchise Aloft Hotels for the third Aloft hotel in Malaysia, after KL Sentral and Langkawi. The 276-room Aloft Hotel Seri Kembangan (meta_loft) by Marriott International is slated to open in 2024.
“Getting Aloft into meta_city says a lot, that even an international renowned brand has the confidence in our location and development. It’s a good morale and confidence boost for us. The Aloft DNA suits our development, which is aimed at the young and energetic,” explained Gan.
For the residence component, meta_residence will be built within three towers identified as Lux Soho (Tower A), Lux serviced residence (Tower A), Bliz (Tower B) and branded suite (Tower C).
For the branded suites, Gan plans to bring in an international brand to operate the 320 units of serviced suites at its upcoming 32-storey Tower C.
“We’re still in negotiation with a few parties. We keep the best for last. Having all these international brands really increase the exposure and visibility of the development. We have the best connectivity of the MRT and we believe all these blend well together. We have the vibrancy and energy,” said Gan.
The 38-storey Tower A will offer 396 units of 450 sq ft Soho and 594 units of 659 sq ft & 864 sq ft serviced apartments, from RM280,000 onwards. Tower A has sold about 60%.
Meanwhile, the 38-storey Tower B of 462 units of serviced apartment (Bliz) consists of Type D (231 units of 757sq ft), Type E (165 units of 960 sq ft) and Type F (66 units of 1,230 sq ft), from RM480,000 onwards with dual-key options. It plans to launch Tower B by year-end or early next year.
For its retail component, Villamas will be operating its first mall meta_mall in six year’s time. The mall is set to be a lifestyle concept mall with a variety of retailers, including anchor tenant Farm In The City.
For the office component, meta_tower will comprise a 13-storey office tower housing spacious and flexible office suites.
