Note: this review was published during the construction of this property; it was first launched end of 2011 and will be completed end of 2013 if everything goes by schedule. The developer, Equipark Sdn Bhd is indeed gearing up for the final stages of the Acappella Residences project at the time of this review.Well known for its commitment to deliver quality as evident on the Sri Acapella, the developer aims to achieve the same level of excellence for Acappella Residences.

Carefully planned to meet individual needs, the units may include 2 to 4+1 bedrooms and 2 to 5 bathrooms while the build-up areas range between 938 to 4,103 sq.ft. With a variety of choices available, Acapella Residences has a unit for everyone – from single professionals to couples, small and large families.
Luxurious and practical living are made possible as the units are fully equipped with built-in wardrobes, fitted kitchens, elegant interior features and superior aesthetics that’s pleasing to the eyes.
Modern urban living within the development is made more appealing with a range of special features for residents to use to their satisfaction. With facilities that include a swimming pool, wading pool, pool deck, barbecue area and gymnasium, there is no need to go anywhere else. Other features to enjoy include:
- House-keeping services

In addition, Acappella Residences is a haven of peace thanks to its multi-tiered 24-hour security system which include a card access system at all lifts and regular surveillance.
Beyond the modern convenience, the cherry on top are the lush greeneries and scenic views that surround Acappella Residences. Spread throughout the property are palm groves and Frangipani trees together with a bed of tropical flora that enhances the place’s elegance to another level.
The area is never remiss with enough amenities either. Within a short drive from the property are shopping complexes, educational institutions, golf clubs and other recreational spots, restaurants and a slew of other shops. Some of the best shopping malls to visit include Giant Shah Alam, SACC Mall, Empire, Summit Shopping Centre and Subang Parade. For schools, there’s the Management and Science University together with Politeknik Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz as among the most popular.
Sports and recreation are active in the area as well. Shah Alam Stadium is just adjacent to Acappella Residences while several golf courses are nearby including the Abdul Aziz Shah Golf Club and the Guthrie Golf Academy Pitch and Putt Course.
Perfect for “Green” Living
Also worth noting is the development’s innovative features such as the Sky Park and Sky Lounge, both of which adhere to “green” living the location embodies. The Sky Park, for one, did not replace any trees but instead uses those in the area to create a natural landscaping masterpiece to provide shade and a breath of fresh air to the building. The Sky Lounge set in the midst of a tropical garden is a great place to relax and socialize.
Now for the serious “green” enthusiast might opt for properties under the Ken Holdings umbrella (for example, Ken Rimba) or Setia Eco Park. However, Acappella promises a central location in the middle of Shah Alam, and this is perhaps unmatched by other green developments which are often far flung and located on the fringe areas of Klang Valley.
Do also note that there is a serviced apartments wing which means that there will be “transient” visitor traffic; after all, not a lot of people fancy having “rotating door” neighbours. On the other hand, being a serviced apartment means that the facilities and maintenance are (usually) maintained up to the standards of a typical hotel. However, we do see serviced apartments going to the dogs with poor management due to dwindling returns and a rather un-enthusiastic management board. We shall refrain from naming names… 🙂
There are not many high profile serviced apartments in the heart of Shah Alam; Acappella Residences may well be fulfilling a (local) unmet niche which means that the demand levels may be sufficiently high and sustaining for the couple of years to come. Considering the wealth of features and many advantages the property offers, it is not surprising to see investors flock to Acappella Residences to acquire a unit. But remember, if you want your investment to succeed and soar in terms of value, pricing knowledge is key.
