Mah Sing Group's (Mah Sing) M Vertica 2-way ingress and egress ramp on Jalan Cheras is completed and scheduled to open in April 2023. The ramp will enable residents’ direct access to their carparks on levels 3, 3A, and 5, significantly dispersing traffic within the carpark and reducing travel time for residents to get to their carpark.

The event was officiated by Tuan Tan Kok Wai, Cheras Parliamentary Member together with Mah Sing’s Founder and Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Mah Sing’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Ho Hon Sang, Mah Sing’s Chief Executive Officer of Property Subsidiaries, Yeoh Chee Beng, as well as Mah Sing’s senior management team and government officials.

Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Mah Sing’s Founder and Group Managing Director said, “I am very pleased that we are able to fulfil our promise for the benefit of the residents and the community with the completion of this dedicated ramp. When we first envisioned how we wanted to build M Vertica, we were certain that a ramp would be required. As one of Mah Sing's major M Series developments based on an estimated GDV of RM2.2billion, we want to add value not only to our customers' purchases, but also to the quality of life in the surrounding communities. Additionally, M Vertica’s above average 5.3% rental yield makes it the perfect choice for homebuyers looking to invest or buy-to-stay to enjoy the broad exclusive facilities offered. In light of this, we will continue to uphold our tagline of Reinvent Spaces, Enhance Life for All Malaysians.”

Mah Sing invested RM23 million to build the ramp with the objective of improving the lifestyle of M Vertica residents as well as easing traffic on Jalan Cheras, Jalan Besraya, Jalan Ikan Ayu, and Jalan Ikan Emas. The construction of the ramp began on January 2022. On top of this, M Vertica’s carpark is designed with wider access ramps (approximately 4m width) at all carpark levels, all fitting in the design philosophy of providing ample space.

Mah Sing’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Ho Hon Sang said, “Launched in 2018, the 11.25-acres M Vertica in Cheras is one of Mah Sing’s largest M Series affordable high-rise residential developments. Comprising a total of 5 towers, Towers A and B of this development were completed, and 90% handed over to the purchasers. The remaining Towers C, D and E are targeted for vacant possession in April 2023. While Towers A, B and C are fully sold, Tower E is now open for sale. The overall take-up for this development has reached 90%.”

High QLASSIC Score of 83%

M Vertica obtained above 80% score for the Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) for the Phase 2 of construction. M Vertica’s Tower C received an 82% score while Tower D, E and Podium B scored 83%. QLASSIC was introduced by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) as an independent assessment tool to ensure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building construction work based on the Construction Industry Standard (CIS: 7:2021).

“I applaud Mah Sing for obtaining a high QLASSIC score for M Vertica’s Phase 2 of construction. It truly reflects Mah Sing’s dedication to providing the best products to the market and attention to details on workmanship from design to construction phases aimed at delivering the best product to the market. It showcases the attention to details in the planning and construction processes to deliver the best outcome for the finished goods which will greatly benefit home buyers,” said YB Tuan Tan Kok Wai, Member of Parliament for Cheras.

Easier Accessibility and Convenience to the Residents

M Vertica is a transit-adjacent development (TAD), making it one of the most easily accessible developments in the area. In addition to being strategically located near public transportation, the dedicated ramp access increases convenience and accessibility for its residents. M Vertica is located 500meters from the Maluri LRT and MRT Interchange and is 800meters to Taman Permata MRT Station (2 MRT Stations away from TRX and 3 MRT Stations away from Bukit Bintang/Golden Triangle area). Mah Sing is in the midst of building a covered walkway to the Maluri MRT as well as the nearby Sunway Velocity shopping mall.

Largest Landscape and Facilities Podium High-Rise Residential Development in KL

M Vertica has a 4.54-acre landscape and facilities podium built on top of the residential parking which provides the residents with a panoramic view of the KL skyline while they enjoy the facilities provided. This development comprises over 40 exclusive facilities for all age groups such as children’s water splash play and chill area, as well as a 50m infinity swimming pool, with a variety of facilities provided that caters to all walks of life and age.

Residents of M Vertica will have many options when it comes to surrounding amenities such as shopping malls like Aeon Taman Maluri and Sunway Velocity, and educational institutions like Taylor’s International School Kuala Lumpur and SRJK(C) Naam Kheung – bringing convenience to the families and meeting all their different needs. M Vertica also emphasises high safety features for residents by incorporating a high-frequency tag system for car access, CCTV at all entry points and separate entrances for retail and residential car parks and more.

“Last year, we launched M Vertica’s badminton courts on Malaysia Day together with our Malaysian mixed doubles badminton players. The badminton courts are one of the wide range of facilities that we’ve envisioned for M Vertica residents to live a healthier lifestyle at the comforts of their homes. The badminton courts can be easily converted into a multipurpose hall to accommodate sizable gatherings. We are currently in the midst of completing a Badminton Academy which is situated next to M Vertica and we are expecting its completion in the first half of 2023. We hope that this Academy will benefit not only the residents but the surrounding community,” said Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong.

An Expansive View for Every Home

Residents will be warmly welcomed by M Vertica’s impressive 40feet high main entrance. The 5 tower blocks of M Vertica are laid out like an open book, a conscious design decision that incorporated Fengshui elements (this type of design is thought to welcome wealth). In fact, this design serves a more practical purpose; instead of facing a neighbouring block, every residential tower would enjoy expansive views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. All the blocks are served by high-performance lifts to reduce waiting time for residents.

Sustainable, Speedy and Safe Construction Technology, With Green Features

Mah Sing continues to introduce more environmentally friendly features into home design and construction. As part of its ongoing sustainability initiative, the new construction methodology using an aluminium formwork system was implemented in M Vertica. Besides eliminating the use of timber formworks and replacing them with reusable aluminium thereby reducing waste, this method also improved the speed of structure casting. The project also used the safer and faster Self Climbing Platform (SCP), where steel structures acted as safety and protection for external architecture, façade work and more.

Some of the green features implemented in the project includes the Stream Pneumatic Waste Management system, LED lighting for common areas, rainwater harvesting for landscape irrigation, cross natural ventilation in common corridors and electrical vehicle charging stations. Within the homes, low-e glass was fitted for units facing west, and low volatile compound (low voc) paint were used, and the wc also comes with dual flush feature to save water consumption.
