The developer of Eve Suite is a boutique developer who developed Pertama Residency located in Cheras. Pertama Residency is a successful fully-furnished studio apartment development which delivered handsome profit to its investors. Pertama Residency has been awarded the Best Interior Design and Highly Commended Award in High-rise Architecture category in the International Property Awards 2010 (Asia Pacific). However, it does not come with any single parking, making it less appealing to others.
Perhaps the developer has learned its lesson and come up with Eve Suite with two and three car park bays. Besides Pertama Residency, the Group also developed NZX Commercial Centre, which also located within Ara Damansara enclave. The price of Eve Suite is indeed on the high side even though it is a fully-furnished unit. For about similar budget (and lesser), one can own completed units in more established areas such as Mont Kiara, Ampang and Subang Jaya.
Thanks to the undergoing development LRT Extension, which is only few minutes walking distance from Eve Suite, lots of interest have been generated from investors as there is a potential for an even higher appreciation. A pedestrian walkway will be built to link between LRT station and Eve Suites, as this is to solve security concern when residents travel from LRT station back to condo at late evening.
