The developer of Maxwell Towers was liquidated years ago. But there are not many problems suffered, as owners setup an association to overcome problems and took over the management. The association managed to stop the developer from taking out RM400,000 from the condominium management company’s account. Since then, the association has improved the livability of the condominium by repainted the entire buildings, installed a sand filter, repaired the fountain and improved the security to name a few.

If you are deciding to buy or rent a unit at Maxwell Towers, try to avoid lower floor units, as the corridor is darker due to the air well at the middle of the block. You might not enjoy as great view as other higher floor residents as well. However, if you are a big fan of nature, pleased yourself with the Bukit Gasing facing unit – you will enjoy the breathtaking views of the well-kept forest.
