A unique urbanite experience brought to life amidst the industrial landscape of Sungai Besi, the development of the 66-storey, three-tower serviced apartments of Trion @ KL by Binastra is a striking and bold move: bringing a modern-lifestyle edge, which appeals to today’s new generation of residents, to Malaysia’s historical mining town just a few short kilometres south of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre.

For the creative concept of engaging residents with impressive facilities and services within Trion @ KL by Binastra, lifestyle developer Binastra Land Sdn. Bhd. was awarded Highly Commended for Best Mid End Condo/Apartment Development (Klang Valley) at the 6th annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) in April 2019. Adding architectural talents to the project are Architmatrix, with dynamic interiors orchestrated by PDI Design and landscaping to showcase impressive facilities by WDI Design.
With a Kuala Lumpur postcode, and shuttle bus to the nearest LRT station, the GBI-certified development aims to invigorate the neighbourhood with residential aspiration. Over 1,300 partly furnished freehold units are presented with six floor plans in various sizes. These range from 689 square feet for two bedrooms and a bathroom up to 1,055 sq ft for three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The project is designed to set the bar high for urban living, with double-height lobbies, grand entrances, pocket greens and water features creating a sense of occasion. Generous drop-offs add to the grandeur, with a prominent frontage on Jalan Tun Razak, one of the city’s busiest thoroughfares, and connectivity to five major roads.
Interior spaces combine wooden finishes with geometric designs, texture and colour to produce a minimalist yet striking space that is resourceful and at the same time unapologetically style-conscious. Adding to the liveability elements of how the rooms are configured, residents are catered for with personalised services, including housekeeping, laundry pick-up and delivery, room service, and event catering.
Trion @ KL by Binastra excels with more than 40 facilities which are discovered on four different levels. Beyond the relaxing green spaces on the ground floor, which is open to celebrations and relaxation, the eighth level is a recreation deck set amidst greenery. Here residents can walk along the pretty wooden elevated walkway and relax in hanging basket seats. There is an amphitheatre, lagoon pool, whirlpool, poolside lounge, and sunken seat pod on water, whilst the dramatic poolside gym is housed in a circular structure with walls of glass.
A link bridge connects levels 54 and 55 on two of the towers, where a sky deck includes a jogging path, yoga deck, kids’ play area, and garden lounge. Still higher, the rooftop garden on the 66th floor has a raised party deck, sky gym, and starry lounge with funky light-up seats and glowing egg lights, creating a futuristic, mellow vibe that fits with the overall concept of contemporary lifestyle residences.
Within the four-acre site, adding to the convenience and lifestyle focus of Trion @ KL by Binastra are retail outlets, a four-star hotel, and food-and-beverage offerings, creating a unique mixed-use development.
