Most expats are well-acquainted with the neighbourhood BRDB calls home, Bangsar, and more specifically its flagship retail mall, Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC)
BRDB’s core businesses are the development of residential and commercial properties, property investment and manufacturing.
BRDB was incorporated in 1964, and in 1968 was one of the first property development companies to be listed on the KLSE. Since then, BRDB’s fortune and insight have allowed it to experience a long list of successes.
Bukit Bandaraya, is the first neighbourhood that BRDB created. A stroll through the streets of Bukit Bandaraya, a meal in BSC or a visit to one of BRDB’s many residential developments in the area all attest to that which BRDB strives for, and has consistently achieved, the cultivation of a truly cosmopolitan lifestyle.
BSC is BRDB’s flagship commercial development. Whilst it is a neighbourhood mall, a recent refurbishment and an offering of boutique fashion and some of the best in F&B have made BSC a hotspot in the entertainment scene with patrons coming from all over KL.
While Bangsar will always be the home of BRDB, it is now spreading its wings to new areas and new markets, with the aim of recreating the unique atmosphere it is known for.
The location is undeniably attractive and imbued with a cosmopolitan, stylish and functional atmosphere
The Kuala Lumpur City Centre is now considered the capital’s most influential district. Home to the tallest twin towers in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, leading conglomerates and international companies have headquartered here and share prime real estate with 5-star hotels and exquisite dining and entertainment options.
Suria KLCC is just one of the many shopping options that can be found within the vicinity of The Troika, with more than enough to sate the most discerning and energetic of shoppers. In between The Troika and the Petronas Twin Towers lies the KLCC Park; a 20-hectare oasis of greenery that once a year bursts into a symphony of light on the eve of the New Year.
For symphonies throughout the rest of the year, The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra display their skill at their home of the Dewan Filharmonik.
With 231 units built on just over 2-acres of land, The Troika has a range of unit sizes to suit a variety of needs. In creating a well-rounded development, commercial and retail spaces have also been incorporated. Retail spaces have taken up by F&B tenants, and the commercial spaces are being filled with companies looking for an exclusive address and an eclectic work environment.
The Troika, completed in 2010, has won the CNBC Asia Pacific Awards for Best High-Rise Residential and Best High-Rise Architecture in 2008 and also the Cityscape Asia Real Estate Award in the same year.
With a multicultural population of around 1.9 million, KL’s cultural variety distinguishes it as a unique and distinctive metropolis. Elements of heritage and the olden days are ever present in the bustling enclave of Masjid Jamek – Indian shops reminiscent of a bazaar with some of the best Indian food in town, historic Jalan Ampang, the antiquated Malay houses of Kampung Baru and Chinatown, a bargain hunter’s paradise.
Here post-modern architecture may sit beside gorgeous colonial buildings. And these landmarks and sights are conveniently located from 6 CapSquare.
To add to the luxury of convenience, 6CapSquare is surrounded by shopping, entertainment and dining options from international brands to bargains at Jalan Dang Wangi and Jalan Munshi Abdullah and KL’s famed KLCC, home to the Petronas Twin Towers that is 2km away.
There’s really so much going on in the bustling heart of this city. If you seek tranquillity from the buzz of the city, Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is nearby with nature trails for you to enjoy – with the KL Tower in its midst.
CapSquare’s integrated development sits on 15.2 acres of prime freehold land and comprises a mix of luxury residences, signature offices, a vibrant 300m retail boulevard and a 4-storey shopping mall with a host of retail, dining and entertainment options.
With 176 units built on 0.899 acres of freehold land, this development is suitable for investors with a range of interest as well as tenants with varying needs. 6CapSquare’s extensive facilities include water pavilions, an infinity edge freeform pool that houses a rejuvenating Jacuzzi cove, interactive fountains, creatively landscaped gardens, and a sauna. For the more active there is a multi-level gym that overlooks the KL skyline, squash courts and an indoor basketball court. It is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
The CapSquare neighbourhood is kept safe with a comprehensive security system; 24/7 manned and electronic surveillance as well as elevator card access for designated floors.
Launched in mid-2011 and expected to be completed in 2013, Verdana is BRDB’s first residential development targeted at the mid-range property market.
Located in Dutamas, Verdana is BRDB’s first development in the area. Adjacent to the cosmopolitan lifestyle in Mont Kiara, yet in an uncongested location, Verdana enjoys convenient access to a variety of dining, retail and entertainment options as well as international schools such as the French International School and Mont Kiara International School, and golf courses.
With only 298 units built on a generous 5-acres of land, there is an abundance of greenery and water features. 70% of the land is dedicated to landscaping and recreational facilities such as an Olympic-length swimming pool, badminton court, tennis court, fully equipped gym and a sauna to name a few.
In respect to luxury, comfort and attention to detail, the new development at Medang Serai is designed to surpass the success of One Menerung.
It is a low-density development with only 121 large units built on 5-acres of land. In giving back to the community that it calls home, BRDB is developing a portion of the land into a park for the neighbourhood.
The suburb of Seri Kembangan is the venue chosen for BRDB’s latest landed residential development. The aim is to create a neighbourhood that enhances community living, yet allows residents to retain their privacy. Homes are designed with private walkways, like individual bungalows, but the community aspect is heightened by lakes and lush open parks that the development is built around as well as a full-featured clubhouse.
Its next development in the southern peninsular is a marina lifestyle development located in one of Iskandar Malaysia’s most coveted areas, Puteri Harbour. Designed to cater to the growing residential demands of the region, the development will feature an exclusive community with spacious and comfortable waterside homes.
