Montena (also known as Montena Sovo Suites) is the latest promising take on the growing trend of small office / versatile office suites specially designed for modern individuals. It has an expected completion date of 2015 and is developed by Fame Modulation who is also the proud developer of Damai Square and Damai Garden Centre, both of which are shop offices also situated in the vicinity of the Alam Damai, Cheras area.
Montena is situated in Alam Damai, Cheras with a natural surrounding of lush, green backdrop and is conveniently located along the main road of Persiaran Alam Damai. It is claimed that this development is the first exclusive high rise suites at the strategically elevated location. Situated on a 1.6 acre leasehold site, which has already been renewed to the maximum of 99 years, the building of Montena consists of two blocks with 22 storeys each. Block A has 242 units whilst block B has 231 units; there are three types of unit build-ups available for purchase, which are the 603 sf, the 657 sf to the 692 sf.
A SOVO for short, is a development which allows the occupants to both live and work there and comprises unique unit layouts to suit the different lifestyle needs of various individuals. These are people who have decided to look for units with modest sizes which are, in fact, a result of their convergence of economic and lifestyle considerations. Each unit at Montena comes with a standard layout of either 1 or 1 + 1 for both the bedroom and bathroom choices as well as being partly furnished with a few necessary fixtures such as kitchen cabinets, air-conditioning, lightings and water heaters, to name but a few.
This Montena development enjoys excellent accessibility to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya, Petaling Jaya and other suburbs via the East-West Link (Connaught Highway), the Cheras-Kajang Highway and the MRR2. To begin with, the Kuala Lumpur City Centre is about 10 km away, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya are about 22 km away whereas Petaling Jaya is approximately 18 km away. This goes to show what a prime location it is situated in.
On the other hand, within the immediate surroundings of Montena are the well-established housing schemes of Taman Len Sen, Taman Connaught, Taman Bukit Anggerik and Taman Bukit Cheras. The building is at once in a private enclave and by itself, it is a self-contained development, but it is also built close enough to other more advanced housing estates so that it is not such a secluded area. There is also the 30 acre central park of Alam Damai, which is actually directly next to this property, providing a more refreshing point of view from other standard properties.
In addition, all owners will be able to enjoy easy access to a wide array of shopping and educational facilities in this matured neighborhood including the Leisure Mall, Tesco, Giant, the University College Sedaya International, the Sri Cempaka International School and a number of public primary and secondary schools. The nearby medical facilities include the Hospital University Malaysia and the Cheras Pantai Medical Centre, which will be able to satisfactorily cater to any medical needs while all major banks have their branches in the development’s nearby areas to facilitate the banking requirements of the owners.
Montena is the modern epitome of the balance between the outdoors and the indoors; it is tastefully crafted to be on its way to complement the lifestyle of contemporary urbanites with the three key components that embody the young professionals: Live, Work and Play. One can truly see how good the response has been to this up and coming development by the speed at which the units are snapped up. Apparently the first phase of Montena has been, or is close to, a sold out status, reflecting that it is most possibly due to the tastefully designed structure as well as the quality of the surroundings which all worked together to appeal to the discerning buyers.
And it is not hard to see where the attraction lies in this particular piece of property; with a clean minimalistic design that enhances the building’s charm by giving it a more sophisticated look, instead of standing out like a sore thumb on the hilltop, would make it a hit with urbanites of all ages seeking that healthy balance between work, play and lifestyle living. A majority of the owners will have a magnificent view of the KLCC towers, which is breathtaking already but especially so when lighted up at night, and the swimming pool or the stunning axial view of the French Boulevard-styled 30 acres central park of Alam Damai, which is directly next to this property. It will be as if Mother Nature is living right at one’s doorstep.
This particular development is built around a 30-acre central park that is the spine and focal point of the township and has a network of cycle and walk paths, a playground, picnic areas, gazebos, par courses and sports facilities. There will also be an entertaining zone at the rooftop which houses viewing decks, private function rooms and kitchens. Residents of Montena will be able to enjoy a facility that still has a nouveau factor about it: cooking out in the open air, 22 storeys above the ground. Surely life doesn’t get better than being able to sit back and relax with family and friends to enjoy the splendid view of the surroundings with the fragrant aroma of cooking wafting in the breeze!
In addition, there is the eternity swimming pool which allows one to gaze out over the green rolling hilltops in the comfort of the gently lapping waters or to just bask in the warm sunshine by the poolside in comfortable loungers. The natural beauty as well as the existing greenery is preserved and retained as much as possible which promotes ‘Life Amidst Greenery’; as such this property will be able to see a marked appreciation in value in times to come.
