The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Fair -

A PRIME devel­op­ment in a prime lo­ca­tion – City Res­i­dence in up­scale Tan­jung Tokong is one of the best places you can call home, on cos­mopoli­tan Pe­nang Is­land.

Lo­cated in close prox­im­ity to var­i­ous ameni­ties such as banks, eater­ies, hos­pi­tals, shop­ping malls, schools and more, this mod­ern con­do­minium by the renowned Ivory Prop­er­ties Group Bhd ticks all the boxes.

Con­cep­tu­alised as an ur­ban oa­sis promis­ing a tran­quil am­bi­ence for res­i­dents, City Res­i­dence is where one will find the best bal­ance be­tween work, home and play.

Ex­clu­sive, lav­ish and unique, it was built with only the finest in mind. So ex­pect noth­ing less than an ex­tra­or­di­nary life­style amidst con­tem­po­rary sur­round­ings, a myr­iad of leisure ameni­ties and top-notch liv­ing con­ve­niences.

Trendy homes

Ris­ing on 2.42 acres of prime free­hold land along the Jalan Tan­jung Tokong main road in the is­land’s north­east, City Res­i­dence is al­ready com­plete with its Cer­tifi­cate of Com­ple­tion and Com­pli­ance (CCC) ob­tained.

A mixed-use devel­op­ment, it com­prises twin 39-storey tow­ers hous­ing a to­tal of 202 res­i­dences – rang­ing from stu­dio to typ­i­cal units and pent­houses sized from 460sq ft to 5,600sq ft – which sit atop a com­mer­cial podium block.

Fea­tur­ing con­tem­po­rary in­te­rior de­signs, they are sure to ap­peal to the mar­ket of young elites, cou­ples and mod­ern fam­i­lies look­ing for a trendy, cos­mopoli­tan-style home.

The com­pact stu­dio apart­ments oc­cupy the 7th to 10th floors, over­look­ing the fa­cil­i­ties deck. Th­ese are great for in­di­vid­u­als and ex­ec­u­tives just climb­ing the cor­po­rate lad­der.

Typ­i­cal units come in three con­fig­u­ra­tions – Type I at 1,700sq ft with three bed­rooms and four bath­rooms, Type II at 1,230sq ft with three bed­rooms and three bath­rooms and Type III at 1,830sq ft with three bed­rooms and four bath­rooms.

Th­ese oc­cupy the 11th floor on­wards, and are lim­ited to a max­i­mum of three units per floor. They also come with at least one park­ing bay.

Inside, the stylish homes open to breath­tak­ing views of the city sky­line, jux­ta­posed against the glis­ten­ing wa­ters of the chan­nel, and main­land in the dis­tance.

The ex­te­rior fa­cade was also de­signed with the trop­i­cal cli­mate in mind. It utilises large over­hangs and shad­ings to both pro­vide depth to the de­sign, as well as prac­ti­cal­ity in re­duc­ing heat emis­sion into units.

Be­sides cre­at­ing a clean and sleek ap­pear­ance for the struc­ture, it also helps re­duce the need for air con­di­tion­ing, help­ing res­i­dents save on util­ity costs.

Leisurely lux­u­ries

Ul­ti­mate re­lax­ation is as­sured with the plethora of fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided. Take a stroll round the man­i­cured gar­dens that sur­round the fa­cil­i­ties floor, or take a plunge into the in­fin­ity pool where you can gaze out to amaz­ing views and feel all your wor­ries dis­si­pate.

Chil­dren will have lots of amuse­ment and fun at the play­ground, kid’s pool and slide, while the el­derly are sure to love the semi-out­door fit­ness park for gen­tle, early morn­ing or evening ex­er­cises.

For par­ties, head over to the bar­be­cue pav­il­ion, gath­er­ing plaza or com­mu­nity hall for pleasant get-to­geth­ers with your loved ones, rel­a­tives and friends. Oth­er­wise, work out at the well-equipped gym or sweat it out at the sauna room.

At the City Res­i­dence, one not only en­joys all the com­forts and fa­cil­i­ties of a cos­mopoli­tan home, but he also has the con­ve­nience of be­ing at the doorstep of many re­tail shops of­fer­ing a vast ar­ray of prod­ucts and ser­vices.

Only lim­ited units re­main avail­able, priced from RM665,000 on­wards, so act fast.
