Unfortunately, when I called up it was already sold.... I fell into depression for 3 days, unable to sleep nor eat...
Now, that's an exaggeration. But I was really very sad to see it go. It is my hope that the buyer is not like the neighbour 2 doors away who installed an aircon sticking out right in the middle of the facade while destroying much of the beautiful louvre window.
As in any remedy of a jilted lover, the best thing to do is to find a new one. So, I set off around looking and found quite a few properties priced below RM1m. Such as the one below at Jalan Sekarat. It is a pre-war building which unfortunately was badly renovated by the owner. The most unfortunate thing is, the owner was quite proud of his renovation and insisted on pricing the property at RM600m. This is despite the less favourable location which is outside the boundary of the heritage zone.

And up from its ashes, will rise SixCeylon...
It is a Freehold project, expected to be completed in Q4, 2013. They are going to have just over 200 units over 33 floors. There will be 8 units per floor, serviced by 4 lifts.
The sizes and prices are:
Type D 696sf - 1 bedroom intermediate units (beige colour below) starting from RM577k to RM732k
Type B 837sf - 1+1 bedroom intermediate units (blue colour below) starting from RM690k to RM866k
Type C 1200sf - 2 bedroom corner (red colour below) starting from RM960k to RM1.2million
Type A 1555sf - 3 bedroom corner (green colour below) starting from RM1.25m to RM1.5million
From the plan above, it seems the smaller units are all facing Angkasa Impian II. Despite the less desirable view, these are expected to be sold out early. The more desirable views are the Type A and Type B, especially the bottom corner which will have a dual KLCC and KL Tower view - and an added bonus of the red-tiled swimming pool view right beneath.
The idea is somewhat similar to the Library resort in Koh Samui... (have we anything original in KL yet? sic..)
The hanging kitchen plus all other white goods are provided while the rest of the unit will be delivered unfurnished. There appears to be a show house somewhere, perhaps will be paying that a visit soon.
