We present you PROPCAFE Exclusive PROPCAFE 360 Aerial View with collaboration of ARCHIDOZ.

When location comes into discussion, Lavile Kuala Lumpur site is easy to analyze as it is merely 4km away from the center point of Kuala Lumpur – Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park at KLCC. A few dots of the key landmarks in Kuala Lumpur map (see above) will bring you to Lavile Kuala Lumpur.

PROPCAFE did a survey with Cheras folks to figure out how & where they spend their times and what they need by living in Cheras. With the given top requirements of leisure, entertainment, healthcare and schools from the market research, PROPCAFE summarized it in the table below, along with the distance and time clocked to these destinations.

What else do you want to know? Foods, of course! Cheras is a food heaven. Simply google “Best Foods in Cheras”, the recommended foods will take you months if not years to try all. Let’s just zoom into Jalan Peel which is right at the dot of the site of Lavile Kuala Lumpur. Named as One of The Best Food Streets in Kuala Lumpur by Time Out Kuala Lumpur, you get to enjoy the famous Jalan Peel’s Beef & Chicken Satay, Hokkien Mee, Popiah, Grilled Chicken Wing, Beef Tripe Noodles, Pork Innards Soup & Rice, Ling Zhi Tong Sui Dessert, etc. How about higher end or fine dining?

In short, you won’t be short of choices when you think about the foods in this location!

Potential Population Growth?

PROPCAFE could not find out the exact population in Cheras but one should never doubt on the population growth in this largest suburb in Kuala Lumpur. One can just easily observes its road traffic, crowds in IKEA Cheras, lively business activities, residents from more than 100 “Taman”, high number of proposed MRT stations to see the potential needs of housing from families, new migrants or upgraders in this part of Kuala Lumpur. This matured township generally perceived as old and boring township, so now what Cheras needs is integrated, quality and luxury & exciting lifestyle properties to cater the demand from emerging mid-high income family and generation X & Y residents. Developers are always ahead the curve and it is no surprise to see IKEA and few soon-to-be completed higher end malls and MRT lines are planned here to support the increasing need of amenities and public transportation in Cheras.

Lavile Kuala Lumpur Accessibility Analysis

Lavile Kuala Lumpur is all about Location, location, location.

Nestled in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Lavile Kuala Lumpur is within 3.5km to Pavillion KL, 4km to KLCC, Lavile Kuala Lumpur is mature and prime real estate in our books. You will be overwhelmed by the accessibility options, let us start with.

i) Highway network

Typically we write about the highway network from suburban projects to KL, but is this the other way round.

Think about this? All roads lead to KL (not Rome for this instance!). Feel like skipping this. But at PROPCAFE, we don’t do shortcuts. Let’s name the highway shall we. Cheras Kajang, Loke Yew, Sg Besi Besraya MEX, MRR2,  Jalan Tun Razak, North South Highway, Smart, really abundances of highway accessibilities.

ii) Public transportation

What about public transportation at present day? Lavile Kuala Lumpur is only 250m away from Taman Maluri LRT Station.

iii) Future transport infrastructure, the KVMRT Maluri Station

People say 2 is better than 1. Folks in Taman Maluri are the lucky bunch as Taman Maluri Cheras will get not 1 but 2 train lines. Maluri station is the interchange station of Sungai Buloh/Kajang KVMRT Line 1 & LRT Ampang Line.

Interchange, interchange and more interchange

What is so special about an interchange? Direct translation enormous upside. In short, with an interchange you are able to access 2 lines easily, which translate to better travel options, convenience, it pays to be convenient nowadays.

In addition, Maluri Station is 2 MRT stop away from Tun Razak Exchange, an interchange station of KVMRT Line 1 & KVMRT Line 2 (Tun Razak Exchange).  This is like having 2 MRT stations at your disposal. You want go One Utama, Kajang ok can, KLIA, can, KLCC, Bukit Bintang, no need to venture further, just 2 stop away from Maluri MRT Station for the interchange station.

Maluri Station is also 1 station away from Chan Sow Lin interchange station, where you can access to Ampang LRT line, Sri Petaling LRT line & KVMRT Line 2.

Connectivity to KVMRT Line 1 and Jusco Aeon Maluri

To ease the access of the residents of Lavile Kuala Lumpur to KVMRT Line 1 and Maluri LRT Station, the developer will build a covered walk way to like the Lavile Kuala Lumpur to Jusco Aeon Maluri. They say pictures tell a thousand words, check them out.

PROPCAFE did the walkthrough of the access to Jusco Aeon Maluri to KVMRT Line 1 MRT Station (under-construction) will be approximately less than 2 minuites walk passing through Jusco Aeon Maluri Mall. The journey is pretty decent as we are passing the mall, with free aircond.

However we understand the access via the mall will be limited to the operation hours of Jusco Aeon Maluri typically from 10am to 10pm.

Alternatively the residents of Lavile Kuala Lumpur would require to an alternative access via Lorong Peel or Jalan Jejaka to Jalan Cheras.

Jusco Aeon Maluri, decent mall, able to fulfill your daily groceries needs also serve as the access to Maluri Station.

Lavile Kuala Lumpur layout analysis and views

Despite the building looks like continuous L shape, developer has smartly divide it to 4 blocks with own lobby and lift access. There are 4 blocks with consist of block A1 and A2, B and C. The current launch is the block A1 and A2.

There are 9-10 units/floor, it sounds overwhelming however the developer has consciously enhanced the security such as access card to dedicated lobby and floor. To minimize waiting time, each block will be equipped with 3+1 lifts for the conveniences of the residents.

At first time when PROPCAFE saw the layout details, PROPCAFE was overwhelmed with the variety of the layouts. However with the eagerly helpful SA, PROPCAFE managed to collage and pierce the information. The variances of the layout is due to the mirror image of the layout and small variance in the balcony and built up.

In general, there are 3 layouts as per table below

Type Size, sqft Configuration
A 750 2+1bedrooms + 2 bathrooms
B 860 & 864 3+1bedrooms + 2 bathrooms
C 956 – 1067 3+1bedrooms + 2 bathrooms

Due to strategic location with close proximity to KL City Centre as well as myriad of amenities and infrastructure, MALURI has become choice of young families and this is very evidence from other developments in MALURI. Recognizing the TREND, Units in Lavile Kuala Lumpur been consciously designed with either 2 or 3 bedrooms and 2bathrooms.

The layout in general is designed with practicality in mind. To keep absolute price at minimum, minimal space wastage is observed. The bedrooms is sized to fit furniture efficiently. Sizable yard is provided in case owners would like to convert the space to wet kitchen. Compact balcony for owners who need fresh air and occasional smokers. But what PROPCAFE would like to highlight is utility room that many people take it for granted. Being condo, space is precious and typically for family their belonging will grow over the time. The utility room is excellent versatile space and if designed appropriately, it can store your belonging such as a foldable bicycle, old magazine and books that you are unwilling to throw away (yet), toys and almost anything else that not regularly used that you wish to tuck away. This will make your abode more spacious, tidier and cleaner.

Share of average price, average floor

At the moment of writing, the pricing is not finalized by developer however the indicative price during the launch is around from RM868psf before any developer incentives such as early bird discount. Please check and consult with developer for the actual and final pricing structure for each different layout, level and facing. We are told monthly maintenance will be approximately RM0.35 PSF, average monthly maintenance will be around RM270 to RM380.

Show Unit Review

The show unit is based on the layout of Type C 1060/1067sf. The high ceiling and the width of the living hall provides additional visual space in this unit. All bedrooms and bathrooms are in reasonable sizes but open kitchen is relatively small. However, it comes with a good size utility room and yard to cater the needs of family. Do refer the photos below together with the layout analysis in the other section.

Nearby development comparison

For most of the people out there, property will most likely form the biggest purchase (or investment) ever in our life. Naturally we want our money works hard for us and get the best bang for it. Obviously before we sign on the dot, we need to survey and make comparison between all the properties from concept, finishes, developer reputation, access etc. In PROPCAFE, we strive to provide information that could guide PURCHASERS make informed decision before part away with hard earned money.

PSF and rental comparison for development within 1km away from Lavile Kuala Lumpur

We observed that Orando Holding’s past project within the vicinity Vistaria launched RM350K from beginning stage and now market selling price increased to RM710K. Sky Vista launched RM650K and now commands a market value of RM1million.

Since the launch of D’ Alamanda in 2003, Maluri has seen tremendous growth in property demand and capital appreciation. D’ Alamanda has more than double its value due to the low absolute price and launched during the softer property market. However the market started to pick up from 2009 where purchasers who took risk buying Amaya Maluri after the US’s Financial Crisis has reaped the benefit by enjoying 80% capital appreciation! Due to its strategic location and many infrastructure upgrades, Maluri has gain attention from Sunway where Sunway Velocity’s maiden premier residential Sunway Velocity V-Residence 3 was launched from RM850psf on July 2011 with subsequent phases at even higher prices, breaching RM1K psf.  The market observer is waiting for the eagerly anticipated One Cochrane from Boustead where they expect to launch it early next year. Currently they are fine tuning the plan by reducing the size but increase the total unit from 800 to 880units.

With close proximity to KL City Centre, 2 MRT stations and mall with 1km apart, upgraded Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Cheras as well as direct access to MEX, Maluri will just get better.


Within the 4 acre of land, Lavile Kuala Lumpur consists of 1278 units with density of 336 units/acre.


Location sells itself at  Maluri, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

With so many focus and attention on Taman Maluri especially on the impending completion of MRT and redevelopment of Cochrane, not surprising that this area has gain much attention from developers and the property buyers.

In addition, Taman Maluri commercial area at Jalan Jejaka will continue serve the local from all ranges of commercial goods & services from banks, electricals, convenience stores, laundries, car wash, pharmacies, mini market, fruits and all sorts of food options.

Coupled with 2 mega malls from established developer with proven record of managing malls (Sunway with Sunway mall and Boustead with Ikano and Curve), the Velocity, Mytown and Ikea malls will infuse new life in the area and subsequently will attract migration of population to move in Maluri. The development will also encourage the Life-Work-Play concept within Maluri itself.

With KVMRT Line 1 due for completion in July 2017, it will be just 10minute or 3 stations away from Bukit Bintang Central while the residents still could enjoy the myriad of amenities within Maluri. Essentially it will bring Maluri closer to to KL City Central.

With all the catalyst, you cannot blame the optimistic property experts on the potential of Maluri/Cochrane area.

Mid-Term Prospect

PROPCAFE is always bullish on Cheras properties as it has all key factors to grow exponentially based on its large population, close proximity to centre of KL, “Old Money” with relatively high purchase power, ample of amenities, matured township, accessibility to all part of Klang Valley and recenty massive infrastructure upgrade at Jalan Cheras/Jalan Loke Yew. The much awaited integrated commercial & residential projects like EkoCheras and Velocity will also bring more lifestyle to the under-served residents in Cheras. Lastly, the game changer – MRT Line, which is the last piece of puzzle and missing link in Cheras, will become the reality in 2017. There is no doubt on the positive mid-term prospect in this part of Kuala Lumpur.

Lavile Kuala Lumpur Project Summary

Lavile Kuala Lumpur is a project which smack in the middle of KL town. Mega malls, commercials, banks, schools, cheap eats expensive eats and all convenience you need staying in town are all within reach.

Notwithstanding, you have a Maluri interchange station coming, acts as main catalysts for the project.

However, average PSF at RM868 is not exactly affordable, definitely it has priced in the location premium.

There isn’t many new project coming in this part of town, Lavile Kuala Lumpur is indeed a rare project in prime and mature location such as Maluri Cheras. That being said the surrounding of this area rather old, some say its gold.

Lavile Kuala Lumpur is an  winning project comes with density, with close to 1300 units, it’s going to be crowded. But hey, which city that is not crowded these days…….

  1. I think there is an error in your connectivity review – the exchange station for both MRT lines is not Cochrane but TRX. Hence, Maluri is two stations away from the interchange.

    1. Thanks Kevlos for pointing this up, yup you are right, amended, hope you enjoy our article!

  2. Best ever review (peek) on Lavile KL!

    It would be much better if Orando-Sunway have any plan to built a pedestrian-bridge between Lavile-Velocity to connect both side of the roads rather than have to walk across the heavy traffic at Maluri 🙂

  3. No doubt the location of this project is very nice. But somehow I think this article only share the basic information and most are the positive side. If would be better if propcafe can share the downside of this project also.
    I personally think the pricing is a bit on high side and this article did not mentioned the price comparison with the surrounding developments. Nevertheless Thanks for the effort and the information sharing here.

  4. […] post PROPCAFE Peek: Lavile Kuala Lumpur by Orando Holdings appeared first on […]

  5. Visited their sales gallery, very good location and pricing, can think about it

  6. appreciate your write up. however it would be great if you can share some downside of this project.

    1. Dear WLHH

      Thanks for your feedback, glad that you enjoy our article. Downside, let’s start with density, we throught that density is in the high side.

      What is your take on negative sides of the project.

      1. Hi, this project is no doubt in the best location in Maluri with freehold title. more and more high end condominium is coming up such as One Cochrane & UNA.

        My concern for this project will be the sustainability of its pricing (900 psf is pretty high for a high dense condo in cheras) as it is getting competitive in rental market when M vertica, Parc 3, UNA, One Cochrane are all ready. Tenants have plenty to choose from. Do u think the developer can deliver the 900psf value/quality to the buyers? or just because of the location, the developer is building a moderate condominium and charge a premium on it? please bear in mind that at 900psf, it only comes with 1 car park. if you bought an additional car park, the price for the condominium is close to 1000psf.

        i love this project, but at 900psf how much will the subsale gonna be in future? if the developer cant deliver the value/quality of 900psf buyers gonna suffer in subsale market in future.

        1. Dear wlhh

          Yes, we agree that location of Lavile is good and its freehold too.

          On your question that as to whether developer can deliver the value what the purchasers pay for?

          Unfortunately this is the million dollar question that one will be able to find out upon VP. But however, one can always refer to developer’s previous track record as a good reference as reputation of the company is at stakes here.

          While there is a saying leopard will not change its spots. We do see cases over developer over delivered but most of the time, we tend to see more cases where there are significant cost cutting noted at the final product delivery, vs show unit, window size shrank, change of landscape by giving 1 liner explanation.

          Artist illustration.

          So it is important to buy from reputable developer. Happy investing!

          1. In your opinion, do you think this developer is able to deliver the 900psf quality to its buyer based on its pass record?

            Btw, i am from Kuching Sarawak and never visited any of their project before.

  7. well written article on lavile, what do u think when lavile compared to amaya and compare to single story house in taman maluri (with 1600sqfeet), among this three which is the best investment?

    the later two is leasehold while laville is freehold but the later two is ready to move in, pls guide me….
    i am totally a newbie…

    1. Dear Colton, thanks. You may follow us on Facebook as well at

      Back to your question.

      When come to investment, it is all comes down to dollar and cents and yields.

      Subsales leasehold properties are cheaper to acquire, may yield higher, but may find hard to exit later years, when the lease diminishes, that to us, is still too soon to worry most of the time.

      While if you pay too much premium on new freehold property, you maybe hit with long term negative cash flow.

      In times like this, we would think it is better to acquire a readily build properties, you can earn rental income immediately. What you see is what you get, hence narrow down the expectation gap. Reduces risks, and honestly, there are many bargain buys these days!

      While when you buy undercon. You may face with some uncertainties like what reader WLHH pointed out, the concern on as to whether the developer can deliver what it’s promise.

      Both are not certainly right, outcome maybe 3-5 years later, and that is the beauty of properties investment.

      Happy investing!

  8. Good write up. My only concern is the entrance and exit of the condo via Lorong Peel which is a small road. I do not see the possibility that it may be widened. A school is nearby and UNA residents would be using this small lorong too. Any othet exits for Laville? Otherwise congestion is a big problem

    1. Dear Skalan, thanks for the compliments.

      In terms of access, what you see is what you get now.

      We do agree that the current access may subject to bottleneck in future where especially there are nearby upcoming developments. It may not be as bad, as it may be a just concern that yet to occur.

      There are ways to overcome it too, why not opt for public transportation, Maluri MRT, that is reasonable stroll to the project. Healthier Greener way to travel and traffic free too.

  9. Dear WLHH

    We are not sure too.

    But as general we can give you some guide, let you as the home purchaser be the judge.

    Check the specification given by the developer of the project and compare to a 900psf price project nearby, is it the better or worst. List them down, compare it. Take it as a small project, then compare to subsales project nearby, this can be fun.

    On site visit, we strongly advise our reader to do visit the site, the more the better. Property investment comes with major financial commitment. You need to know where you are buying right.

Let's chill and chat here with a cuppa! :)
