Jalan Ampang Hilir is a busy road at most times. Traffic congestion is a norm as motorists utilize the road to escape terrible traffic jam along Jalan Ampang. Even though it is just located 3 kilometres away from KLCC, one should expect around 15 minutes driving during peak hours to reach KLCC. As Tara is located right next to the road, residents at the lower level bear noise and air pollutions from the road.
Even though Tara is an old condominium, its facade looks new as the building got a new coat of paint several years back. But from the building design, one can recognize that the building is aged around 10 years.
There are not many high rises residential in Ampang Hilir. Thus, residents of Tara can enjoy fascinating view of the cityscape. Depending on the units, each unit will face North West, North East, South West or South East. Units that facing North West are the most desirable units here as the units enjoy great view of the city centre.
Nowadays, one can see a number of condominium developments going on in the Embassy Row enclave. These include Katana II, Brunsfield Residence and Iringan Hijau. Due to the scarcity of land in KLCC enclave, Ampang Hilir seems to be transformed from an embassy enclave into a high-end residential neighborhood.
The price tag of Tara has been stagnant for quite few years. But it has high potential to rise in the future following plenty of new residential developments in the area pricing from RM800 to RM3,000 psf.
