UEM Sunrise on Track to Launch its First Transit-Oriented Development called The Connaught One

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 June 2023 – UEM Sunrise Berhad (UEM Sunrise or the Company), will unveil The Connaught One, its first transit-oriented development (TOD) in Taman Connaught, Kuala Lumpur, on Saturday, 24 June. Being in close proximity to the Taman Connaught MRT Station, the Company’s upcoming TOD grants residents the convenience and flexibility of accessing public transportation while offering various built-up homes for all market segments.


Starting at RM290,000*, UEM Sunrise’s first freehold TOD covers 1.4 hectares (3.4 acres) and consists of two towers, each 53 storeys high with a total of 1,334 units from 9 to 16 units per floor, offering five types of layouts with starting built-up sizes from 42 m² (452 ft²) to its biggest 118 m² (1,270 ft²). These layouts are flexible and adaptable by design, giving residents the freedom to design a layout that fits their current lifestyle. Type A comes with one car park bay, Type B with one or two car park bays (in tandem), while types C, D and E come with two car park bays.


The Connaught One addresses various needs of the market as a result of the pandemic, such as a co-working lounge for those working from home, a dedicated parcel and delivery area near the guardhouse and various outdoor and recreational facilities, including a jogging track and bicycle lane, intergenerational playground, jacuzzi, lap and wading pools, and a reading area, all to foster a healthier and active lifestyle within the development. The common area is also partially powered by solar panels, and common EV chargers are provided.


“We conceptualised The Connaught One as a unique product that combines its accessibility and integration with the public transportation system, catering to the demands of young urban professionals and families working either in the city or the area, as well as complementing the needs of the post-pandemic lifestyle, all at an affordably priced residence. The Connaught One’s overall design reiterates our product DNA to flexibly cater to our homebuyers’ current and future lifestyles.


As such, we are excited to launch our first TOD this coming weekend,” said UEM Sunrise Chief Executive Officer Sufian Abdullah.


The residential development is right for first-time homebuyers and professionals working near the city centre and attractive for small to medium families who still wish to live in Cheras, especially near the Taman Connaught MRT Station.


For those commuting by car, The Connaught One is directly connected to the Cheras-Kajang Expressway, Jalan Cheras and is a short drive to the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), all of which will serve to disperse traffic to various parts of the city.


Its residents will benefit from various amenities within a 5km radius, including world-class healthcare providers such as the Pantai Hospital Cheras; and UCSI University, a leading higher education institution with a 12,000-strong student body.


With the readily available public transportation infrastructure and services as well as the vast array of facilities and amenities, Cheras is fast becoming one the most searched areas to rent amongst house hunters and investors, with the Taman Connaught MRT station just six stops away from the Tun Razak Exchange, which will house several financial services companies, and integrated retail hubs.


The residence is on track for completion in the last quarter of 2027.


With a Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM747 million, The Connaught One is also the first residence in the RISE Series under the Happy+ product series, UEM Sunrise’s efforts to categorise its future residential products into segments based on its customers’ lifestyle needs. Residences under The RISE Series are flexible and agile spaces that can shape and shift to suit homebuyers’ lifestyles with limitless value propositions. These attainable homes embody practical living with an environment of simplicity, recreation, and convenience.
