REVIEW: YOO8 @ 8 CONLAY Branded Residence aims to upgrade the Lifestyle of the Rich in Malaysia


Imagine driving your new Porsche arriving at the lobby of your luxurious condominium and there is a free valet service there waiting to park your car on behalf.

Such service level would only be found in a 5 Star hotel but now is available for residences in the upcoming Branded Residence YOO8 @ 8 Conlay KLCC.

Branded Residences are gaining more popularity in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This type of high-end properties could attract the affluent home buyers and investors. Even though with a high price tag, for the wealthy buyers who want to upgrade their lifestyle are willing to buy such properties to catch up with their communities and friends.

It’s not surprised to see that the upcoming YOO8 @ 8 Conlay is doing well with their sales so far and we will discuss what this property can offer to the affluent home owners.

Home buyers who opt for Branded Residences often think that money is not a real issue and some investors have the opinion that the capital appreciation of branded residences is promising and won’t be affected by economy condition because of their limited supply.

Upgrading your Lifestyle

The 8 Conlay is a freehold mixed development project consists of 5 stars hotel, shopping mall and 2 towers of serviced residence located at the prime location in Kuala Lumpur. It’s just 1 minute walk to the Pavilion premium shopping mall and you may use covered walkway to walk to KLCC area too. 

Living in the prime location means that you will get to enjoy all the top-notch amenities and conveniences at the heart of KL. For foreign buyers, they can rest assure that they are buying the best property in the best location of Malaysia.

Serviced by Luxury Hotel Brand

YOO8 will be serviced by Kempinski. Basic services include valet parking, concierge, doormen, shuttle bus and 24-hour security service. There are also many other a-la carte services available, such as laundry, housekeeping, reservation for dining and spa, butler on call, private chef, personal fitness trainer, tailor on call, emergency maintenance service, car rental and car care services.

Created in 1897, Kempinski is Europe’s oldest and most established luxury hotel group. Internationally delivered with ‘Remarkable European Flair’, Kempinski’s distinctive brand of exceptional service has been creating lasting impressions on discerning guests for over 121 years.

The benefit for home buyers being affiliated with a premium hotel brand can further strengthen your property value and gain more capital appreciation. This is one of the mandatory requirements of any branded residences.

Branded Designers

YOO8 consists of 2 towers, both comes with interior design by renowned designer, furniture and renovation. The interior of Tower A is designed by Steve Leung and Tower B is designed by Kelly Hoppen. Both designers are working with YOO, one of the largest residential designer brands in the world. YOO8 is named under this designer company because YOO is already an established name in the property line with 82 projects in 57 cities around the world.

Kelly Hoppen is an award winning and one of the most celebrated interior designers with over 41 years of experience. She is author of 9 books and regularly appears on TV, magazines and social media. She has designed the interior for many luxury properties in major cities in the world. She has recently collaborated with international architect Steve Leung to design for One Shenzhen Bay in China, and now they are working together again for YOO8 project in KL, Malaysia.

When you move into YOO8, you are assured to see the impressive renovation designed by world renowned designers. The benefit is you can save your time and most importantly the property differentiate itself from other luxury developments and thus retaining its value or fetch high capital appreciation.

Award winning architecture, landscape and facilities

Branded residence doesn’t come complete without the best architecture and landscape designs by branded companies. 8 Conlay project has ultra modern façade design and for residences they also get to enjoy beautiful landscape design in their facilities.

The landscape of YOO8 is designed by TROP Studio and Mr. Pok Kobkongsanti in Thailand. Mr. Kobkongsanti is the first South East Asian to win the prestigious American Society of Landscape Architects ASLA Award.

The 26th floor of YOO8 has an impressive 25m opulent pool that span across Tower A and Tower B with double ceiling height. 

At 44th floor is the multi-tiered landscape design inspired by Malaysia’s rainforest. Residences get to enjoy jogging there with the flora and fauna on this floor.

Who should buy YOO8 @ 8 Conlay

YOO8 is definitely not for everybody because of its premium price tag. Based on our knowledge, Tower A is almost completely sold-out, so the conclusion is there are still available buyers for this range of properties.

First of all, for the rich buyers who are looking to upgrade their lifestyle to next level in the prime location of Kuala Lumpur, they can definitely consider to check this project out.

For foreigners who are keen to invest in a freehold branded residence in the prime location of Kuala Lumpur can also consider this development.

One of the success stories of investing in Branded Residence is the Banyan Tree Signature by the Pavilion group. Also located at Jalan Conlay (Conlay road), the launching price for this project was RM1,500-1,700 per square feet in 2011. Now, the current price is RM3,200 psf, a 100% increase in capital appreciation!  

Branded residences in the long term have high potential of capital appreciation. I would recommend looking at YOO8 purely from other value propositions such as affiliation with branded hotel group, branded interior, architect and landscape designers. Such affiliation would differentiate the property from others and you will get to live with the affluent neighborhood and enjoy the best shopping conveniences in Bukit Bintang and KLCC areas.
