Despite being carved out from what’s known as the “Segambut backwater” many years ago by the venerable Sunrise, Mont Kiara has since been transformed into an upmarket enclave with sought-after condominiums among the well-to-do. Depending how you want to see it, Tiffani Kiara (or also known as Tiffani by i-Zen) is either a bandwagon jumper with the rest of the cookie cutter Mont Kiara condominiums, or a true innovation looking to break the tradition (and the Sunrise monopoly). We’ll see what’s under the hood…
Also known as Tiffani by i-Zen, Tiffani Kiara is located in the eastern side of Mont Kiara on Changkat Duta Kiara where a rather high density cluster of condominiums and landed properties are are:- Kiaraville (just right opposite), Seni Mont Kiara, Villa Aseana as well as the Pavilion Hilltop right at the very end. It is merely a stone’s throw away from the Solaris Mont Kiara retail area, which means that its Goodplace Walkability Score (GWS) is high; indeed, many cafe, restaurants, banks and commercial buildings are reachable by foot. The popular Publika mall (housed in Solaris Dutamas) is a quick 5 minute drive away (I wouldn’t recommend walking there though unless you’re a motivated walker of sorts who would brave the sometimes punishing Malaysian sun).
Tiffani consists of two blocks of condominiums which house nearly 400 units between them. Completed back in 2009, like many other Mont Kiara condominiums, it’s freehold.
When it was first launched, the price was around the RM450 PSF level, but like most (all?) other Mont Kiara properties, it has gone up by leaps and bounds. The chart below shows the asking prices as collated from various publicly available sources for the past few months –
PropertyReviews.my analysis also shows that the prices are pegged against its nearest neighbours – namely Kiaraville which is just right opposite, and to a certain extent, Seni Mont Kiara further down Jalan Duta Kiara.

The table below collates Tiffani Kiara’s vital statistics –
|GoodPlace Walkability Score||69|
|Rental||RM3,000 - RM10,500|
|Subsale||RM714 PSF (Transacted)|
There are three different layouts to choose from: “Radiant“, “Ideale” and “Kallista“. (Yes, I know, sometimes you just wonder who came up with these names). For those who are looking for bachelor pads, then the Type D Radiant unit may be ideal at 815 square feet. The biggest units (Kallista C) are 3,678 square feet with 4+1 bedrooms. Most other types have the standard 3+1 configuration, and are sized between the studio and the biggest unit. All of Tiffani Kiara’s units come with air conditioners, drawers and cabinets, and water heating system – not 100% ready-to-move-in condition, but halfway there.
Facilities-wise, Tiffani Kiara features a sky infinity pool, a jogging area, as well as basketball courts, a squash court, a gym, and a tennis court. Families would be sure to take advantage of a social barbecue area, the children’s pool, the playground, and a clubhouse.
About The Developer
Ireka Corporation is Tiffani Kiara’s developer, and this explains the “by I-Zen” brand. Ireka is also the developer of the i-Zen condominiums which are situated behind One Mont Kiara, as well as the neighbouring Villa Aseana (landed properties) as well as Kiaraville and Seni Mont Kiara. Indeed, a huge cluster of Mont Kiara east “belongs” to Ireka. Elsewhere, Ireka is behind the high profile RuMa hotel and residences on Jalan Kia Peng inside the KLCC area.
Upmarket developments are Ireka’s bread and butter, and its projects have never failed to disappoint.
With the rising amount of residential homes and luxury condominiums that are slowly filling up Mont Kiara (with the latest developments focusing in the north and Dutamas area) and the posh KLCC area, it’s no wonder how a lot of apartments and high-rise buildings are becoming hot investment opportunities for the wealthy public (Malaysian or international). For this reason, existing condominiums are often overlooked although they may have a better value proposition given their established positions, often superior locations and existing tenant base.
Tiffani Kiara remains one of the better managed and maintained Mont Kiara condominiums, and its prices are decidedly mid-tier by Mont Kiara standards. Its good location means that it will always have an edge even against newer condominiums in the northern side of the Mont Kiara enclave. To top it all, its developer and management pedigree perhaps would add 5-10%+ premium on top of that of a “regular” Mont Kiara cond0minium’s asking price.
Finally, with the prices of Tiffani have been rather flat-ish for the last couple of years, and we can attribute that to the supply of condominiums in the area; Kiaraville and Seni Mont Kiara collectively supplies 1,000+ units in the same stretch of the road. Seni is at about 10-15% higher in terms of asking prices PSF-wise, and offers bigger units; it might not be suitable as a “comparison” for pricing purposes.
