Location: U-Thant & Ampang Hilir (Embassy District of Kuala Lumpur)
The locality of Taman U-Thant represents the most sought after and distinguished real estate in Malaysia. For the last 50 years it has been one of the country's most historical and prestigious addresses where diplomats, ambassadors and wealthy local families have their best home. The landscape of Taman U-Thant comprises mainly individual houses with large gardens, a few low-rise apartment buildings and embassies.
Located next to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) separated by Jalan Tun Razak, the current density allowable in Taman U-Thant is between 100 and 150 persons per acre. This location is zoned strictly for low-rise residential development.
In recent years, several boutique developments have mushroomed in the heart of U-Thant, progressively changing the landscape, offering more opportunities for property investors to own a piece of this valuable real estate. Some notable new developments that are recently completed include The Katana Residences, Madge Residences and U-Thant Residences.
Taman U-Thant is favoured for its exclusivity yet being near proximity to the vibrant KLCC and the 40-acre KLCC Park. Within 1 to 3 kilometres radius are several international schools, health care centres, a light rail transit (LRT) station, shopping malls, banks, office buildings, a golf course and a polo club.
Ampang Hilir is located beside Taman U-Thant and shares similar profiles of properties and public amenities.
