Platinum Victory Wins Highly Commended for Best Mass Market Condo/Apartment Development (Klang Valley) 2019 For Platinum Splendor Residensi Semarak
City accessibility and attainable affordability with aspirational lifestyle qualities symbolise the key components of Platinum Splendor Residensi Semarak. Just a few kilometres from the centre of Kuala Lumpur, the development is strategically located right by Jalan Semarak, one of Malaysia’s prominent thoroughfares, bringing with it greater possibility for those working in the capital to live that much closer to their workplaces than many other suburban residences of this type.

The 2,000-unit project is the masterplan of developers who specialise in creating residential possibilities in locales that are often out of reach for all but the most affluent. The Platinum Splendor Residensi Semarak project has attained Highly Commended for Best Mass Market Condo/Apartment Development (Klang Valley) at the 6th annual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) in April 2019 for Platinum Victory Sdn. Bhd. Adding architectural acumen to the project’s creative team is KSKA Arkitek, with landscaping in the capable hands of Hashim Design & Associates.
The three towers, 32 storeys high, are home to 600 units which are part of the Residensi Wilayah (RUMAWIP) government initiative, a programme that aims to offer affordable housing for certain income groups to be able to purchase their first home. These specific units are 882 square feet in size, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The remaining 1,400 units range from three- to four-bedroom residences, up to 1,184 sq ft, each with two bathrooms and separate living rooms. Meanwhile, some units have study rooms too.
While the overriding ethos behind the leasehold units is to encourage investment in city properties outside the elite environs of luxury abodes, Platinum Splendor Residensi Semarak displays a sense of quality and lifestyle-centric flair when it comes to facilities. Landscaped gardens inspire a sense of relaxed recreation, while an Olympic-size swimming pool is an impressive feature. Poolside lounging with gazebos imbues the development with a touch of resort-style ambiance too.
Creating a communal environment for residents is a jogging track along with a wading pool and a playground for youngsters. There is also a kindergarten, barbeque area, and sauna, plus a café, shops, and a multipurpose hall, not to mention a games room, gym and pavilion. Security that is round-the-clock and CCTV lend peace of mind to this family-friendly development as well.
Aside from easy access into the heart of the city, the DUKE toll road leads to many other nearby destinations. The entertainment neighbourhood of Ampang with its many Korean restaurants is just six kilometres away, while Mont Kiara and Petaling Jaya are less than 15 kilometres away.
A proposed 25-acre recreational spot is earmarked for development close by, extending a sense of greenery and relaxation to residents, while some of the city’s main educational institutions are within walking distance. The overall takeaway of Platinum Splendor Residensi Semarak is just how splendidly and ambitiously it brings a new market of property investors so close to the heart of the capital: elevating city-living potential.
