Pantai Panorama @Kerinchi
|January 2, 2016||Posted by Ann Khee under Property News|
From 22nd floor of The Park Residences condominium, my eyes stared at this building. The next door, older condominium – Pantai Panorama. Panorama is a freehold condominium located in Bukit Kerinchi in Pantai, right above the new development of Bangsar South.
- Developed by AMDB
- Completed in 1996 (16 years old)
- 5 blocks
- 18 storeys
- 708 units
GOOD! Strategically located right in the middle between Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. One can access to Federal Highway, Penchala Link and New Pantai Expressway with ease. For vivid shoppers, it is just minutes away from Mid Valley Megamall and Bangsar Village.
Panorama was used to be surrounded by squatter slums but now the slums are gone and being replaced by office complexes and condominiums. This Bangsar South neighbourhood is, of course, far more luxurious and pricey than Panorama.
Going uphill to Panorama, one will pass by some medium cost flats and apartments which may turn off some owners. Traffic can be very bad during peak hours with illegal parking along roadsides. Few hundred meters away, downhill is the Universiti LRT station. The country’s University Malaya is across the Federal Highway.
Panorama seems to be on the highest point in the Bukit Pantai area. This gives the condominium panoramic views of Kuala Lumpur and the Petaling Jaya (should be, since the condominium is named Panorama). However the taller buildings that are coming up in the Bangsar South area are sure to block whatever beautiful view.
From far, I notice that although Panorama is a 16 years old condominium, the maintenance of the building is very well done. I believe the owners and management is doing a good job to maintain the place.
A quick check, Panorama is asking for RM550/sqft. Wow. If were to choose, I would prefer the newer and lower density condo next door – The Park Residences @ Bangsar South. At least, it has a better “name and brand”!
