Really forgiven...if the floor plan reminds you of this...
The layout dictates that only 2 units actually get the KLCC view. Both are relatively large units and priced above RM2million at the special Preview launch. The floor layout of the units and designs are not really that interesting except for the Duplex units. The Duplexes face South, which means a Bukit Bintang view or in a few years time, Ireka's condo project... The layout is extremely thoughtful. They have their own lift lobby, just like the other 6 units on the floor. The upper floor has its' own entrance directly into a utility which can also double as a maid's room. So your maid, can have her own entrance!
The lower floor features the adjoining living, dining and dry kitchen. Then, there is also a wet kitchen which really suits our Asian lifestyle and cooking. It's just so thoughtful...
However, the 3 bedrooms upstairs are a bit crammed. Monoland should have just done with 2 large bedrooms, rather than packing three in...
Duplexes generally do very well in the expat high-end tenancy market. This one is a little revolutionary because it is the only small sized residential Duplex in the KL city center. Everything else from Somerset's penthouses, to Binjai on the Park, OneKL, Dua Residency and Park Seven are large units from 2500sf and up. Quadro's duplex is only 1500sf. The fact that Quadro only offers 16 Duplex units mean that they will be in great demand!
It has to be also noted that the road access to Quadro is a dual-way - both Persiaran KLCC and Jalan Kia Peng. The Vipod's access road is a one-way stretch of Jalan Kia Peng. That's a huge difference. And comparing the 2, Quadro's access road is seldom jammed.

The land however is still tiny. But not much difference from OneKL's. So, they have to pack all the facilities onto the roof deck.
One huge concern I have about Monoland is their maintenance background. Although they have a slew of high end portfolios and references, their track record in managing their 2 hotels, Northam and Gurney in Penang has not been very good. They still have a long way before they get to likes of being truly 5-star. The fate of Quadro lies in this.
