Centrio is a low-rise mixed commercial development located at Pantai Hill Park in Bukit Kerinchi, Kuala Lumpur. This commercial centre neighbours Panorama and Bangsar South. It has a gross development value (GDV) of RM980 million. The project was launched in December 2006 and completed in early 2010. It is developed by YTL Land & Development.
The SOHO is designed with double volume ceiling height. Several units even come with private garden, courtyard and sun deck. Besides that, each unit comes with a car park bay. Meanwhile, its so-called boutique-garden-office is an individual office suite with pantry and restroom. The duplex layout is designed with a double volume ceiling. Not only that, each unit enjoys garden view from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Its lush modern landscaped is nicely done by the renowned landscape architect, SekSan that reflects the urban architecture design.
Location-wise, one cannot go wrong with Centrio as it is strategically located about 1.5 km to Mid Valley City, 2 km to Bangsar and 7 km to KLCC. Besides that, it is just mere minutes of walking away from Bangsar South, the upcoming and rising integrated MSC-status township. Several amenities can be found within minutes of driving away including University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), Universiti Malaya, Pantai Hospital, The Gardens, and KL Sentral.
Yet again, Centrio is another successful development by the reputable developer YTL, which has won four awards at CNBC Asia Pacific Property Awards 2009 for ‘Best Mixed Development’ and ‘The Architecture Award’ under the Commercial category; and ‘Best Architecture’ and ‘Best Property Marketing’ in the Residential category. The demand for Centrio is really good right from the launch, where 75% were sold in just 3 days after the official launch date.
The only drawback of Centrio is its location – being close to low-cost residential. However, with numerous new developments going-on in the vicinity, Bukit Kerinchi has the potential to become a trendy and sought-after address.
