Vista Komanwel (also known as Vista Commonwealth) is a high density condominium nestled in Bukit Jalil. It was formerly known as Athletes Village as the condominium was used to accommodate foreign athletes for the Commonwealth Games in 1998.
Vista Komanwel is strategically located next to Sri Petaling LRT station and nearby plenty of amenities. The nearest shopping centre is Endah Parade, which is just mere minutes away and it houses Carrefour and other retail stores.
If you are a sport fan, Vista Komanwel will suit your lifestyle well as it is just within walking distance to Bukit Jalil National Sports Complex. Depending on your unit, you will enjoy lush greenery view of Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Club and Bukit Jalil Recreational Park, or panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur city centre.
Most of the residents at Vista Komanwel are future doctors studying in IMU, while others are newlyweds and young executives. You can get good rental income if you are able to find IMU’s foreigner students to rent your house, as they are quite plenty of them staying here.
Parking is an issue at Vista Komanwel. Rows of cars being parked outside of the condominium is a common sight every day. These cars are not only owned by the residents, but also people who commute to work from Sri Petaling LRT station.
Besides that, some owners claimed that their units have water leakage from the wall, in the bathroom and at the ceiling. Hence, if you heard an agent offering you a unit at bargain price, you should inspect the unit closely.
The price of Vista Komanwel has escalated nicely for the past few years despite of new residential developments in the area. It was tagged at RM180,000 in 2007, and currently it costs from RM210,000 to RM240,000.
