SET ON approximately 2.8ha of land in the Shah Alam city centre, Vista Alam prides itself as being the first high rise residential development in Section 14, Shah Alam.
Vista Alam is a joint venture between developer Tahap Warisan Sdn Bhd and proprietor Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor.
The 99-year leasehold property is built on commercial land.
The mixed development project features 45 lots of three-storey retail shop offices (135 units), two blocks of SoHo (576 units), a block of serviced apartments with two bedrooms (320 units) and another block with three bedrooms (192 units).
Serviced Apartment 1 (two bedrooms and two bathrooms) has a built up area from 759 to 911 sq ft and there will be 20 units on each floor with three lifts servicing the 16-storey block.
Serviced Apartment 2 (three bedrooms and two bathrooms) has a built up area from 1,100 to 1,351 sq ft. The 16-storey block will feature 12 units on each floor with three lifts for the building.
One parking bay is provided for each serviced apartment 1 and SoHo 1 and 2; while serviced apartment 2 comes with two parking lots.
Additional parking lots can be bought for RM20,000 each.
Vista Alam is accessible via the Federal Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway, Shah Alam Expressway, Guthrie Corridor Expressway, North-South Expressway Central Link, and Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway.
It is expected to be completed in December 2014 and the handover of vacant possession to be early 2015.
Speaking to the press at a recent sales launch, Tahap Warisan Sdn Bhd directors K.E. Tong and Zakaria Arshad were proud to announce that the development was 80% sold.
Prices for the serviced apartments start from RM450,000 and the SoHo units start from RM420,000. The shoplots are already sold out.
Tong said there were plans to build a sport centre and the Dwi Emas International School is expected to open in 2015; both are adjacent to Vista Alam.
Sri Emas International School managing director Anne Tham said Dwi Emas will be the second school following the first one in Petaling Jaya.
It caters to primary and secondary students, using the University of Cambridgeprogramme and IGCSE curriculum as the foundation.
“Parents who send their children to our school are business owners and here their children are groomed from young.
“They are taught skills on how to speak to people to prepare them to take over their parents’ business,” she said.
“Financial education begins from Year 1. Students are taught multiplication, fractions and algebra.
“Students have the choice to join drama classes in secondary school but it is compulsory for primary students to enable them to perform in front of people and deal with a crowd,” Tham added.
