IJM Land’s Secoya Residences @ Pantai Sentral Park Defines Eco-centric Elegance

Homeowners offered two distinct interior styles based on their lifestyle needs

Let me walk you through with a video on a brief introduction of Pantai Sentral Park – Kuala Lumpur’s One and Only Urban Forest City

 

Inspired by the dream of luxurious living  amidst verdant urban  forest, IJM Land’s Pantai Sentral Park is a singularly unique development that combines the best  aspects of urban and rural living to create  Kuala Lumpur’s One and Only Urban Forest City.

Location and Accessibility of Pantai Sentral Park

Location of Pantai Sentral Park

Pantai Sentral Park is situated at Bukit Kerinchi smacked in between Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar and Petaling Jaya. Pantai Sentral Park is also strategically connected to Kuala Lumpur to the north east, Bangsar/Damansara to the north, Petaling Jaya/Subang/Sunway to the west and Cheras/OUG/SungeiBesi to the south eastern side. It sits within a close vicinity to the Universiti LRT and Pantai Dalam KTM stations which connect to KL Sentral. Pantai Sentral Park is linked to various road networks such as the Federal Highway via Jalan Kerinchi and from Bukit Gasing via Jalan Pantai Dalam. In addition to the existing amenities, IJM Land is building a direct link to Pantai Sentral Park from the New Pantai Expressway (NPE). At the crossroads and located right in the heartland of Kuala Lumpur, Pantai Sentral Park is but a few minutes away from the Mid Valley Megamall, one of Malaysia’s premier shopping locations as well as being located right on the doorstep of the burgeoning MSC Malaysia Cybercentre at Bangsar South.

Secoya Residences @ Pantai Sentral Park

Nestled amidst 200 acres of prime forest reserve, the landmark development which consists of 7 residential phases and 6 commercial phases is expected to be completed within 10 – 15 years, with the 3.47 acre Secoya Residences ready for homeowners in the beginning of 2019. In realising that home buyers have diverse wants and needs, Secoya Residences are styled in two inspiringly distinct interior designer concepts, each with their own unique appeal that are also eminently customisable. Combined with generous development sizes ranging from 1050 square feet all the way to 1,670 sq ft, each property within Pantai Sentral Park is able to offer ample space for home owners to truly make their home a unique extension of their personality.

Secoya Residences Pantai Sentral Park Overall Development

Secoya Residences is Phase 2 of IJM Land’s Pantai Sentral Park Development, and comprises of 243 units of residential condominiums with built-ups ranging from 1,050 to 1,670 sq. ft. for its two-to-four bedroom units, priced from RM850,000 onwards.

Every unit is oriented towards the North with city views and the South with forest and pool views to prevent undue heat gains. The 41-storey development will break away from traditional point blocks and the deep unit notion of high rise living; instead, Secoya Residences adopts a non-conventional housing model with wide fronting living spaces combined with shallow floor plates that allow for natural lighting and ventilation along with strategically designed bedrooms with wide window panes in order to allow for an unparalled view of the generous green realms and vertical gardens while framed by the lush forest surroundings of Bukit Kerinchi.

The visionary township of Pantai Sentral Park sits on a significant 58-acre parcel of land and has a gross development value of RM2.5 billion. Surrounded by the lush 200-acre forest reserve, homeowners will have direct access to a number of gardens, parks, hiking trails, leisure and flora educational parks, natural streams and creeks.

Secoya Residences Pantai Sentral Park Type A & B Unit Layout

The 2 bedroom, 1050 square feet Secoya Type A has a ‘Young and Energetic’ concept, aimed at  upwardly mobile professionals that are within the age group of 27 – 35 years old who are young and energetic with a passion for life and everything it has to offer. This design concept incorporates many of the lifestyle elements that are important to this target group, such as sports and exercise, fun loving and enthusiasm, and harmonious simplicity with spaciousness.

There is a touch of sporty chic in the overall interior design concept with a strong emphasis on refinement. The living area adopts a duo-tone colour scheme to accentuate expansiveness and vibrancy. The ceiling panelling incorporates lighting arrangement that casts light and shadows on the walls and floor to create an illusion of the outdoor sunlight and leafy shadows. The clever use of wall space to display exercise and sports equipment is not only space-saving; it underscores the prominence of sports and exercise in the lives of the residents. The wall moulded panelling and avantgarde shelf for the TV area is an artistic touch to accentuate contrast and a sense of movement to a blank space. The open kitchen area with its high countertop promotes the sense of understated elegance.

The wall lighting and artistic décor are custom-made to complement the interior design concept.  The master bedroom incorporates a spotlight to cast a shadow of a yoga pose on the wall, enhancing the atmosphere of fitness and well-being. The 2nd bedroom uses the same concept of spotlights and shadows to create a mood of fun and exuberance, which is perfect for younger children. The open wardrobe with its fashionable décor and display creates a comforting sense of space, which is undoubtedly what the young professionals seek, in asserting their personal style.

However, older homebuyers with larger families are likely to be drawn to the 4 + 1 bedroom, 1,670 square feet Secoya Type C unit. The interior design here is a seamless union of vintage feel with a modern treatment of textures and expressions. As the sense of nostalgia is especially strong for those in their early 40’s onwards, this ‘Modern-Retro’ theme is based on their need to “connect” with their fond memories of the past. Aimed at prospective home owners in their fifties with grown children who have spread their wings as young adults in college and high school, this interior design concept will fulfil their unique wants and needs by offering a more cosy, compact living space that is not only easier to maintain but exceptionally stylish too.

For the living area, honed marble is used to highlight the wall texture in a classic Paisley floral motif. The TV is not placed in the living room and the furniture is loosely arranged, to further add to the chic appeal. The custom-made rug with the floral motif accentuates the retro mood, while the décor is entirely vintage-looking with an antique gramophone, radio, and other similarly vintage items. The dry kitchen and dining area with the high countertop gives an illusion of space and while encouraging a family atmosphere. The TV has its own room, with blue LED lighting to complement the exclusive wallpaper for an extraordinary modern-retro effect.

The master bedroom is uniquely retro, with an interlinked ring motif on the wall to symbolise marital harmony, and vintage wood furniture helps to recapture the fond memories of years past. The open wardrobe with a gold framed structure projects an aura of exclusivity and spaciousness, while the retro concept extends to the other bedrooms with open wardrobes, custom-made pendant lighting and wooden furniture. The modern-retro interior design concept and its execution in this unit is an ideal match for the target market of professionals in their fifties with a family.

Grace Foo, Sales & Marketing Manager of Pantai Sentral Park explained that the rationale of offering such distinct interior styles for Secoya Residences stemmed from a deep understanding of the diverse demands of homebuyers.

‘We understand that a home must fulfil the needs and wants of its residents, and that can only happen when the space that surrounds them is finely tuned in to their lifestyle. Secoya Residences Type A and Type C have been carefully designed after considering the fact that home buyers want to feel a connection with their homes right from the moment they set foot inside the door. Their home has be a reflection of their personality, and this is what we believe we have achieved with Secoya Residences, she further elaborated.
