Towers A and B of UEM Sunrise Bhd’s Allevia, which were launched in October 2021 and October 2020 respectively, are 50% and 71% taken up. The development sits on one of the last remaining parcels of vacant land in Mont’Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, and has a dedicated access to Jalan Kiara 4.
Conceptualised as a bungalow in the sky, Allevia is one of the developer’s most recent luxury projects. “The concept was to preserve luxury, privilege and privacy, and this can be seen from the overall design of the two 38- and 43-storey low-density towers,” says UEM Sunrise chief operations officer (central) Liong Kok Kit in an email interview.
There are only four units per floor. In addition, the development has no adjoining party walls, which means less noise disruption from neighbours. This will be especially appreciated by those who work or study from home. “[The design] will provide residents with more privacy while being able to enjoy the luxurious and spacious layouts due to its distinctive living and dining areas, open-plan dry kitchen and breathtaking views of the Mont’Kiara skyline,” says Liong.
Allevia, which occupies a 2.94-acre freehold parcel, has a gross development value of RM545.9 million and is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2025. There will be a total of 294 residential units, with prices starting at RM1.5 million. They will come in 3+1, 4+1 and 4+2-bedroom layouts and have built-ups ranging from 1,703 to 2,634 sq ft.
Liong notes that the flexible layouts at Allevia will allow residents to set up their work or hobby areas without compromising the rest of the space in the units.
“So far, more than 70% of our buyers are owner-occupiers, including young married couples, families with children and families with ageing parents. This will also be a good choice for high-net-worth individuals who are purchasing for their children, double-income couples with children looking for [convenient access] to schools and ample amenities, upgraders, expatriates, retirees as well as investors,” he elaborates.
Keeping in mind that its customers’ needs are always changing, Liong says that Allevia is well-equipped to cater for the new normal. “It will be the first condominium in Mont’Kiara to feature a touchless button lift system, where residents will have the option of scanning the QR code on their mobile devices to call for the lifts [which will] then bring them to their respective floors.
“We have also seen a spike in e-commerce activity and figured that online shopping and food deliveries are here to stay. Therefore, we will set up a designated parcel room to cater for our future residents’ online shopping, food and grocery deliveries,” he adds.
Allevia complies with Qlassic and GreenRE requirements and has achieved a gold rating, Liong highlights. “The development is designed with sustainability in mind, by efficiently incorporating energy- and water-saving features while reducing our carbon footprint. This includes a good sustainable passive design whereby the units have a north-south orientation, which will allow them to stay cool and have an abundance of natural light during the day; water-efficient fittings and appliances that comply with the Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme; and a rainwater harvesting system to irrigate the landscape.”
Allevia will feature a 0.9-acre podium deck with facilities such as a 50m lap pool, Jacuzzi, open lawn, barbecue area, games room, music room and multigenerational playground. There will also be rooftop facilities including a cycling studio, karaoke room, sky terrace, gymnasium and a private lounge area. The maintenance fee excluding sinking fund is 38 sen psf per month.
Nearby amenities include Plaza Mont’Kiara, 163 Retail Park, 1 Mont’Kiara, Solaris Mont’Kiara, Global Doctors Hospital, Mont’Kiara International School, Gardens International School and Lycée Français Kuala Lumpur. It is accessible via the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway, New Klang Valley Expressway, Damansara-Puchong Expressway and Sprint Expressway.
Liong notes that Mont’Kiara is still a preferred address with its many amenities, high-net-worth community and close proximity to the Kuala Lumpur city centre. This makes Allevia very attractive to a wide range of buyers, from families seeking a new home to investors interested in expanding their portfolio.
“Ultimately, Allevia aims to build a community of the future for its residents in the posh enclave of Mont’Kiara by cultivating an environment that alleviates the daily stresses endured by many people, and promotes a more balanced mental and physical well-being through exclusive privacy while being close to retail and food and beverage amenities,” he says.
