An oasis up in the skies

Luxurious: The Verve Suites serviced apartments development by Bukit Kiara Properties.

STANDING amid a well-manicured lawn and sipping cocktails under the stars while listening to jazzy tunes, the small gathering of people might feel they were at a resort.

Well, a resort it is not, but it is an oasis in the midst of the urban hustle and bustle of Mont’ Kiara.

The little party of guests would tend to agree that Bukit Kiara Properties had accomplished its mission of creating a stylish space for the contemporary lifestyle of professionals.

Its four blocks of serviced apartments — Viva, Vibe, Vogue and Vox towers — collectively known as the Verve Suites have each been assigned a “living concept.”

The first two towers, sporting the Vertigo and the Hypercubes concepts, were completed in 2009 and 2010 respectively. They have been handed over to the homeowners and are now occupied.

Vogue, the reason for the cocktail do, will be handed over in early 2012.

The showpiece for this tower’s Concentrico living concept, named after the concentric circles of a tree trunk, is set out on the 31st floor. It was also where dinner was served for the guests invited to “experience” the showpiece.

The Gardens of Concentrico features three main layers of a “jungle.”

The top layer is formed by 52 Leopard Trees, the second layer consists of 80 tree ferns and 45 wild water plums, while the last layer is made up of 20 species of low shrubs and ground covers. The amount of soil used for this “jungle in the sky” could fill 75 six-tonne lorries.

At the far corners of this sky lounge, which has a built-up of 6,240sq ft, are platforms called Podium Panorama furnished with hammocks for residents to chill, shoot the breeze or just enjoy the vista.

There is also an open-air theatrette, whimsically named Cinema Paradiso, a mere stroll away.

As if all these are not impressive enough, the designers have achieved a coup of sort by setting up a hydro-gym, the first in a high-rise residential property in Malaysia.

The gym equipment were specially sourced and imported from the UK.

The whole of Vogue Tower has 255 fully furnished one- and two-bedroom suites ranging from 462 to 926sq ft.

Residents have access to all sky lounges in the Verve Suites, including that in the upcoming tower.

The Vertigo sky lounge houses foosball and pool tables, jacuzzi and sauna among other things while Hypercubes features a spa.

The final block, known as Vox Tower and near sold out, is expected to be completed in 2014.

It will have 250 units of 462sq ft to 1,394sq ft, the largest of which will consist of three bedrooms.

Sitting atop them, on the 34th floor, will be a — believe it or not — sky beach!
