The initial concept of Kiara East is to ensure that the residents of the condominium could travel to the rest of its development by just walking. In line with the concept of a walkable park-life scheme, Kiara East is designed with dedicated traffic ramps that can take all of the car arrivals directly into the elevated car parks, therefore ensuring that Kiara East remains one of the most pedestrian friendly schemes in KL. That could be good news for those who would like enjoy their leisure time at commercial sites but prefer to avoid the traffic.
