Property developers WingTai Asia is adding another luxury development along Embassy Row with Nobleton Crest (not to be confused with Crest on Jalan Sultan Ismail) —a freehold, low-density condominium that is set to rise along Jalan U-Thant in Ampang Hilir end of 2013. WingTai Asia is known for its focus on upmarket properties, and it does have a strong portfolio of luxury developments – namely The Meritz and Verticas Residensi in the KLCC enclave and the exquisite Jesselton Hills in Penang.
The Nobleton Crest is located in Jalan U-Thant, and is within walking distance to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (if you don’t mind the hot KL sun and the haze. Ha!). Residents may enjoy residing in a location that is close to shopping malls, supermarkets, hospitals, schools, and restaurants. In addition, expatriates would find the condominium’s location highly-attractive because of its close proximity to embassies. The Nobleton Crest boasts of a gross development value (GDV) of more than RM100 million, and is designed by Guida Moseley Brown.
Layout and Built-Up Areas
Residents and investors may choose from the following layouts:
- Garden unit – measures 3,800 square feet
- Single floor and duplex units – measures 3,500 square feet
- Penthouse unit – measures from 5,800 square feet to 6,600 square feet, which also includes a private pool
Units come with 4+1 bedrooms and 4+1 bathrooms.
Quality, Not Quantity
Wing-Tai Asia seems to focus more on Nobleton Crest’s quality rather than quality by paying more attention to the interior and exteriors of its condominium, rather than adding more units. By doing this, residents will be able to experience exclusivity, as Nobleton Crest only houses a total of 25 units, spread on three blocks that comprise of only storeys.
Architecture and interior design are all well-crafted for the condominium’s units. Residents can expect spacious units, complete with modern design to match up to its resident’s modern and luxurious lifestyle.
If luxury is what you’re after, then it’s time to take a look at Nobleton Crest’s plans for its limited units. Imported white marble flooring is set to line each unit’s dining areas, as well as living rooms, entertainment areas, powder rooms, and bathrooms. For bedrooms, floors will be tiled with oak timber flooring. Private lifts are also assigned to each unit.
Each unit at the Nobleton Crest would also come with a hot water system in the wet and dry kitchen, bathrooms, and powder rooms. The bathrooms will be equipped with Kohler fittings, and would include vanity cabinets, reflective mirrors, tempered glass screens, and other toilet accessories.
Technology also plays a huge part in the constructing of this low-density condominium. Units come with a high-tech Smart Home System so residents may enjoy the integration of controls for air conditioning, lighting, and ceiling fan control. For aesthetics, Wing-Tai placed all air conditioning compressors on the condominium’s rooftops. In terms of security, units will be equipped with video intercom and a biometric reader to enhance privacy, as well as security.
Residents will be able to enjoy the Nobleton Crest’s luxurious amenities which include a well-equipped gymnasium, a barbecue area, a jogging path, a 25 metre lap pool, and also a wading pool. There would also be a children’s play area and a multipurpose hall. The condominium would also feature a landscaped garden that includes water features.
The KLCC enclave may be the “top of mind” for both locals and expats when it comes to luxury city properties, but the Embassy Row is fast becoming a strong alternative with its promise of low density – something which is conspicuously absent among KLCC (and Mont Kiara) condominiums. The Nobleton Crest is a good example of a centrally located condominium which is low in density and not short on features and amenities.
We also like WingTai’s strong reputation and focus in the prestige property niche; the experience definitely shines through in this project. The launch price exceeds the psychological RM1,000 PSF price point which is the characteristic of new launches in the prestige niche; in fact, the cheapest units are at around RM4 million which translates to about RM1,200 PSF. Not spare change by anyone’s standards, surely.

All in all – the Nobleton Crest is a strong addition to the Embassy Row Mafia ;), and represents a fresh alternative to the usual KLCC offering of highly dense condominium buildings. The U-Thant area is unmistakably upper class, and at the same time serene despite being just minutes from the city center. The jury is still out there when it comes to the the price tag; the investor would compare it with other upmarket properties in the U-Thant area.
