Hijauan Kiara in own class

IF you are looking to buy or rent a condominium in Mont' Kiara in Kuala Lumpur, which would you choose?

Well, the newly completed freehold Hijauan Kiara stands out from the rest and makes me dream of owning one after seeing how my kids enjoyed themselves at the condominium's recreational deck one recent Sunday.

Part of the view of Hijauan Kiara in Mont' Kiara.

They were gleefully jumping on a trampoline that has no stand but is embedded on the ground! So if your child bounces out of the trampoline, the risk of falling or tripping is very much reduced. And, should they fall, they will land on thick artificial grass called Dutch “Royal Grass”. The company has spent more than RM200,000 just on the turfing.

Developed by Bukit Kiara Properties Sdn Bhd (BKP), Hijauan Kiara is special indeed!

It boasts of several “firsts”. It is the first and only completed condominium in Mont' Kiara with private lift lobbies. It is also the first condo to have granite pools; the first to have a “Spa Island”, the first to use the German-imported Dedon garden furniture, not to mention the unique trampoline.

There are seven blocks surrounding a large recreational area with steps leading to a tennis court. From the top deck, one can have a sweeping view of several existing condominiums in Mont' Kiara and right below are colourful bougainvilleas, planted on terraces right down to the 25-metre adult pool, children's pool, children's playground, four cosy reading pavilions and a jacuzzi sundeck.

There is also a squash court, viewing deck, hot and cold pool and indoor and outdoor gymnasium.

The layout design reflects the ingenuity and efforts of BKP's managing director N. K. Tong and his team, who have put in many interesting features to ensure that Hijauan Kiara's residents have their own private “oasis” or “green haven”.

For example, there is a meditation garden with two reading pavilions at a corner of the upper deck of the recreational area. At the other corner of this deck is the “Spa Island”, another special feature of Hijauan Kiara.

The fact that Tong himself has young children could partly explain why so much thought had been put into making Hijauan Kiara a paradise for children.

Tong said: “We are always willing to explore and experiment with new ideas but at the same time, we must ensure that all innovative ideas are user friendly and robust.

“We have three areas for people to have their barbecue gatherings or hold parties without bumping into each other. Today, a project such as the Hijauan Kiara would have 420 units instead of 188 units,” he added.

The Hijauan Kiara is the second of BKP's three projects in Mont' Kiara. The first was Aman Kiara development comprising bungalows and duplex condovillas, sited opposite Hijauan Kiara.

The third is the Verve Suites; an 881-unit, four-tower serviced residence featuring fully furnished designer suites in four ID themes.

Unlike Verve Suites' smaller units, those at Hijauan Kiara are spacious with units ranging from 2,000 to 3,732 sq ft and prices from RM782,000 to RM3mil (average RM460 per sq ft. Recent transaction is said to have hit RM620 per sq ft). The biggest penthouse is 5,400 sq ft in size. Maintenance charge is 30 sen per sq ft.

Chief operating officer Vincent Lim said there were only four units left unsold. “Every few months, we have a new theme. The current one is called Going The Extra Mile,” he said, adding that the units would be handed over soon.
