Tropicana City Tropics, one of the newest and most popular additions to Petaling Jaya’s urban real estate developments, may just be the perfect place for those who would like to put in a lot of fun and luxury into their everyday living. For one, it is perhaps one of the few condo complexes in the country, and maybe in the world even, that comes with a very a full 40-meter lap pool to go with a wading pool and a beach pool. That must be where the inspiration to “Tropics” came from. Living in the Tropicana City Tropics is just like living in your very own tropical hotel room.
Also, residents of the Tropics – as the place is fondly called amongst residents and PJ locals – enjoy an exclusive access to the adjacent Tropicana City Mall. That means the residents do not at all have to go outside of the condo premises to get to the mall.
Apart from that, the following amenities are also available for the enjoyment of the residents, all of which spell nothing but only a most exquisite lifestyle:
- Tennis Court
- Squash Court
- Sauna and steam room
- Par course
- Concierge services
- Function room
However, no matter how notable its features are, the kind of fun-luxury that The Tropics offers its residents may not exactly sit well with family people. But it does seem to fit perfectly well with the young career men and women, and the singles looking to make the most of their single lives. See, the sizes of the place aren’t exactly made to suit a growing family. The regular condos, with 4 different layouts, come in built up sizes between 625 sf and 750 sf and 2 bedrooms on average. Meanwhile, the loft units are at most 1,170 sf in built up size with 2+1 bedrooms at least. On top of that, most of the layouts come with an open bedroom design – something that does not really make for a great family home. But for the career-driven singles out there, some of the units come with exquisite home-office features to suit those who cannot leave their work at the office. The beautiful views of the pool, or greater Damansara (or the cemetery in some units) should make for a great backdrop. The more than 600 units of condos and lofts of the Tropics are spread on two 29-storey towers with 14 units per floor. It suits fine with people who do not mind having quite a number of neighbors.
On top of all its tropical resort lifestyle amenities, the other most attractive thing about the Tropics is the fact that it is right in the heart of Petaling Jaya, and to every urbanite, this has got to be hard to resist. The Tropics is located very close to the Damansara Uptown, Damansara Intan, Section 17, and is right along the major highway of Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong.

But all these features and merits do not really come cheaply. The psf rates here start at least about RM 800 for the unfurnished and smaller unit. In the current market, units here start at RM 800,000 working its way up to well over RM 1.5 million. And it does not see itself going down in value anytime soon.
