It is a luxurious and modern apartment with tight security level. Got various shops at the bottom floor. Plus, very low density if youre looking for a quiet place.

Very well located near LRT Station and good view but...very poor management. Rubbish hasnt been collected for weeks and lift are not working most of the time.
