The Bangsar area has been noted as one of the hippest and trendiest locations in urban Kuala Lumpur, and it only makes sense how the emergence of condominiums in the area has doubled over the past few years. One condominium that stands out is Cascadium Bangsar, situated in the middle of Bangsar — a place that never seem to sleep.
There are standard, duplex, and penthouse units you can choose from. The condominium sits on freehold land, developed by Sunrise (of the Mont Kiara, and lately, the MK10 fame) and managed by Azmi and Co. Being a low-density condominium that houses only a few units, it’s a given that this condominium will provide a peaceful and quiet environment.
Layout and Pricing
The condominium houses 102 units, having standard units sized at 1,200 square feet. Duplex units, on the other hand, come at 1,600 square feet. A penthouse measures at 2,000 square feet. Subsale prices for the units start at RM540 per square feet – although this has risen over the years, but never reaching the levels of condominiums in Bangsar which are deemed to be more prestigious (like One Menerung). Below is a chart on Cascadium pricing compiled from publicly available sources.
Capital appreciation for Cascadium has been more or less in tandem with the rise in Bangsar property prices for the last few years. Asking prices have been trending up rather steeply since early 2013, and reaching up to RM850 psf as seen in the property portals. It’s getting more expensive no doubt, but there are still bargains to be had, especially if you could find one which is below the fair market value.

Living at the Cascadium will allow you to be at the centre of what’s happening and what’s hot. Its location is perfect for people who love the nightlife, entertainment, and dining. Located at Jln Maarof, Bangsar, the options limitless—clubs can be reached by car in less than 10 minutes, and international food chains and restaurants are all within walking distance. Shopaholics would be more than pleased to know that Mid Valley City, Bangsar Shopping Village, and 1 Utama are malls that are just nearby. Talk about retail therapy, anytime!
Bangsar is also near to other hip and happening places such as KLCC and Petaling Jaya. Mont Kiara is also situated within driving distance. Public transportation will not be a problem, as buses and taxis are abundant around the area all the time.
Facilities to Suit All Your Needs
Residents will enjoy the condominium’s facilities and the convenience it offers. For one, there is a cleaning service as well as a launderette for those young people who are too busy to do even the slightest of chores ? CCTVs ensure each resident’s security, as well as a 24-hour roving patrol, and access cards that are given to residents.
Other facilities include a gymnasium for those who long to keep fit, a barbecue area that is perfect for all kinds of parties, a playground, a swimming pool, and a car wash area. There is also wifi hotspot which residents can access for free at the common area. Covered parking is also offered to residents.
With Bangsar having the reputation of being one of the hippest and trendiest places in Kuala Lumpur, it’s no secret how traffic jams are bound to take place—especially during rush hours and at night. With its clubs, bars, eateries, restaurants, and shopping complexes, there’s a risk of noise pollution that may cause disturbance for some people.
Busy nights are words that can describe Bangsar—so the sight of people roaming the streets after clubbing is pretty common. Loud music may also be a problem, as the place is filled with clubs and bars that play loud music, especially when there is an event where a DJ is playing. Football events may become a problem, too—this is where the crowd at bars get rowdy and really noisy, sometimes too noisy for comfort—making it heard from afar.
It’s not surprising how the Cascadium attract the young and the hip, it being in a location where the partying and the shopping never seem to stop. The condominium’s fairly-sized units are great for singles or for those small families who wouldn’t mind the occasional late-night noise Bangsar brings.
We like Cascadium for what it is – a strategically located condominium which is well maintained – and for this, we do expect a premium price tag. Valuing a property can be tricky however, and it’s probably the single most important factor that may make or break your investment.
