PROPCAFE was in holiday last two weeks and LEGOLAND was one of the destinations. Being PROPCAFE , property is in our blood, we just couldn’t help but also did some property works when spouses were not in action. PROPCAFE will cover the nearest development (as of now) to LEGOLAND! This short review serves three purposes – (a) Investment – If you are believing LEGOLAND spillover and Iskandar or want it to be part of your Airbnb portfolio. (b) Own it a holiday home; (c) Tourist who looks for nice Airbnb accommodation in Medini. If you are looking for accommodation of your LEGOLAND, this will help a lot to make up your mind so please continue to read it. Anyway, We are happy to do the first coverage of PROPCAFE in Iskandar and hopefully more in future!
This 360 degree view will not be a technical but casual review that allowed reader to enjoy this spectacular buildings by the joint venture between Khazanah Nasional (Malaysia Sovereign Funds) and Temasek (Singapore sovereign funds). Imagine the two giant sovereign funds behind this project and you will expect it has the financials to provide good delivery in term of quality.
Afiniti Residensi is the nearest tower to LEGOLAND which is right opposite and you can basically walk there in two minutes. Behind the building will be Gleneagles Medini Hospital which will be convenient to retirees and medical tourists. This residential tower can access directly the opposite Medini Mall but do not expect much on the mall! However, some restaurants, fast food chains, and convenient stores are there to serve you.
It is also few minutes drive to Educity where all reknown universities (Newcastle Medical School, Reading, Southampton, Netherland Maritime Institute Technology, and Multimedia University) and international schools (Raffle American International Schools & Malbourough College) are located. Nusajaya also hosts the world famous Pinewood Studio. There are other commercials also another hospital like Columbia Asia within Nujasaya. Yup, this place is huge and it will take another twenty pages to write a detail location.
Afiniti Medini – Facts & Density
Afiniti is one of the first service apartments completed in Medini. There are three towers at Afiniti namely, Afiniti Residensi (22 Storeys), Somerset Medini (33 Storeys) and the low rise Infiniti Wellness Center and Corporate Training Center (CIMB Leadership Academy). According to the source, Afiniti Residensi was launched from 850psf to 1000psf and sold out within few hours :).
Afiniti Residensi has 147 units whilst another block which managed by Somerset housed 310 units. Both buildings have its own lobby, swimming pools and facilities but share other common area.
Let’s focus on Afiniti Residensi since it is only tower you may consider now to own it. 🙂 It comes with multiple size below:
- Studio (484 sf)
- 1 bedroom 1 (715/790 sf)
- 2 bedrooms (993/991/983/1064 sf)
Afiniti is currently the best place for leisure purpose. After a long day at LEGOLAND, you may take rest and chill at its abundant facilities with nice landscapes. All waiting areas comes with double volume ceiling height and glass panels that make it classy and higher end.
Afiniti Residensi tower has its own private rooftop garden and infinity pool at 22nd floor that overlook LEGOLAND and Medini. Absolutely nice place to relax and enjoy the wind and beautiful scene here.
At the ground, it shares the nice garden and other facilities with other towers. The size of the common area is large and more than sufficient for residents here. Thumbs Up on developer’s effort on the landscaping.
CIMB is the key tenant of the Corporate Training Center. It is a good place for corporate workers to train here with great environment with luxury lounge and dinning area below.
I am not sure whether the Wellness Centre interior but the building seems very “quiet”.
Afiniti Medini has tight security with many guards walking around who seems very hardworking as I was stopped to venture into the corporate tower (:P) and also bumped into the patrol guard at my floor few times. In the garden, it also has the panic help button available in case of any emergency required.
Carpark & Laundry Service
Plenty of Carpark lots available and properly labelled for each unit. For those who are not comfortable with the security of LEGOLAND open carpark area, you may choose to park at Afiniti Wellness Centre Carpark which charged RM10 per entry (same as LEGOLAND).
In Summary, Afiniti Medini looks very decent (opps! Except its color scheme) which comes with fantastic environment. Developer has put in a lot of effort and it can easily match 4 star hotel standard. In fact, it has more landscapes and most importantly it is SUPER CONVENIENT for LEGOLAND tourists who come with families. It definitely the best choice so far for LEGOLAND visitors now until another development like the opposite D’Prestine completed, but I doubt it can deliver similar landscape which is one of the best I have seen in any service apartments which still very much well kept. Having said that, within 1-2km from LEGOLAND, you will see many towers mushrooming all over the place. But, location wise, Afiniti TRIUMP! Alright, we hope you enjoy PROPCAFE short introduction of Afiniti Medini.
PROPCAFE ends here with some of the scenes that shot in the nearby Puteri Harbour, about 10mins drive from LEGOLAND. Happy New Year!
Beautiful Harbour Scenery!
Hello Kitty Town and Thomas & Friends located at the mall. Kids have funs but mummy and daddy are Zzzzzzz.
Masterplan of Puteri Harbour. Oh Yeah, Impressive! Waiting for the execution for next 10 years. 😛
Bye Bye! Johore. See you next time! PROPCAFE WILL BE BACK!
