As a residence, it’s a habitat, but for investible funds, it’s a haven. With property in the heart of KL a hot commodity these days, buying the right place can give you not only a place to call a home away from home, but a place to grow your investment, too.

Set back from the main road a bit, nothing about myHabitat residences really jumps out at you as you drive by. And that’s a good thing, too – oftentimes the sophistication and exclusivity of a property can be well-reflected in its subtlety, in how well it blends in with its surroundings. Just behind and beside the popular Intermark mall and mixed-use development, including the gorgeous new Integra office suites, myHabitat boasts an enviable location. The uppermost floors of this 36-storey building, called the myHabitat Designer Lofts, afford commanding views of KLCC and the surrounding skyline, clear out to the distant hills and mountains ringing the Klang Valley.

All of the heart of KL is within easy reach, and public transportation via the Ampang Park LRT station is just steps away. Shopping, dining, and entertainment options abound at the adjacent Intermark, and of course, expanding the reach just beyond that to include KLCC, Avenue K, Pavilion, and Bukit Bintang – all very nearby – the options are nearly endless.

But there are plenty of top-end designer apartments around KLCC with price tags to match. So what makes the myHabitat lofts unique? One notable feature is that inside each unit, there is a very real sensation of being in a landed property, owing to the design and layout of what is not just a duplex unit, but effectively a triplex. It’s surely not often you find a three-storey apartment, and the topfloor units are just that, and also boast a private rooftop space that features a small lap pool or Jacuzzi and a spacious deck for BBQs and entertaining.

Needless to say, once you walk out onto the private deck and are greeted by sweeping rooftop views, the feeling of being in a landed house is quickly forgotten. So in that sense, it’s the best of both worlds. You get the multilevel feeling of a bungalow and the amazing views, community recreational offerings, and enhanced security of a high-rise.

The MyHabitat2 which radiates nothing but sophistication and comfort of the highest order is certainly set to enjoy the same success achieved by its predecessor, the MyHabitat. Occupying an enviable place in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s main commercial, shopping, and entertainment district, MyHabitat2 is adjacent to the new iconic international landmark comprising a shopping mall, two international Grade A office towers, and Malaysia’s first DoubleTree hotel by Hilton. The MyHabitat2 Service Residence, comprising stylish layouts in 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom, and 4+2 bedroom configurations, are bound to be a hit with expats.

For owners at myHabitat, there are essentially two options by which the management services can be engaged. The first, sure to be popular with owners who rent their lofts out, is the hasslefree option. Effectively a turnkey service, the management quite simply handles everything from paperwork and tenant acquisition to recommending and arranging contractors for renovation and even furnishing the residence.

The second option is the pool management system, familiar to many strata-titled property owners, but with a very different twist here specially developed to cater to investor-owners. When the Low Yat Group embarked on developing a luxury residential portfolio of projects, a question was posed as to what sophisticated, affluent investors would desire besides a good product and a prime location. It turned out that many foreign and local property investors had encountered problems after purchasing their properties, especially in renting out the unit and collection rental payments, as well as the upkeep and maintenance of their purchased units. Under this plan, units are managed for short-term stay, and revenue from rental is then distributed amongst the pool units via quarterly financial statement updates.

More importantly, pool owners are rest assured that their property is efficiently leveraged with constant revenue, as well as proper care and maintenance. Additionally, owners are permitted to take up to 14 days free stay per annum. This makes the myHabitat Designer Lofts a dream investment where owners will have both the opportunity to use their property and generate income at the same time. The other key difference here, it must be noted, is the hands-on role played by the management, ensuring that any needs are tended to promptly and professionally.
