UEM Sunrise to unveil The Connaught One, a transit-oriented development in Cheras

KUALA LUMPUR (June 20) – UEM Sunrise Bhd is set to unveil its highly anticipated transit-oriented development (TOD) project, The Connaught One, in Taman Connaught, Cheras on Saturday, June 24. The prime location of this development near the Taman Connaught MRT Station offers residents unparalleled convenience and accessibility to public transportation, coupled with a wide range of beautifully designed homes catering to diverse market segments.
Convenience and flexibility
The Connaught One, UEM Sunrise’s first freehold TOD, covers 1.4 hectares (3.4 acres) and consists of two towers, each soaring 53 storeys high. The development comprises a total of 1,334 units, with 9 to 16 units per floor. With prices starting at RM290,000*, The Connaught One provides an affordable entry point into this vibrant community. The development showcases five distinct layouts, ranging from 452 sq ft to 1,270 sq ft, giving residents the flexibility to personalise their living spaces according to their lifestyle preferences. Type A units are accompanied by one car park bay, Type B units offer one or two car park bays in tandem, and Types C, D, and E come with two car park bays per unit.
Catering to new normal lifestyle
Addressing the evolving needs brought about by the pandemic, The Connaught One offers a multitude of amenities and features that enhance the living experience. A co-working lounge caters to those who work remotely, while a dedicated parcel and delivery area near the guardhouse ensures convenient handling of packages. Outdoor enthusiasts can indulge in a range of recreational facilities, including a jogging track and bicycle lane, intergenerational playground, Jacuzzi, lap and wading pools, and a reading area. Emphasising sustainability, the common areas are partially powered by solar panels, and electric vehicle (EV) chargers are available for residents’ convenience.

“We designed The Connaught One as a distinctive product that seamlessly integrates with the public transportation system, appealing to young urban professionals, families working in the city or nearby areas, and individuals seeking a post-pandemic lifestyle. Our affordable residences embody the spirit of flexibility, accommodating the present and future needs of our homebuyers,” said UEM Sunrise chief executive officer, Sufian Abdullah.
Ideal for first-time buyers and urban professionals
The Connaught One is an ideal choice for first-time homebuyers and professionals working in the vicinity of the city centre. Its strategic location near the Taman Connaught MRT Station offers unparalleled connectivity. For those commuting by car, the development enjoys direct access to the Cheras-Kajang Expressway and Jalan Cheras, providing convenient travel options via the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) to different parts of the city. 
Residents of The Connaught One can enjoy a host of amenities within a 5km radius, including healthcare providers such as the Pantai Hospital Cheras. The development is also situated near UCSI University, which boasts a student body of 12,000 individuals.
Rising popularity of Cheras as prime residential area
Cheras, with its well-established public transportation infrastructure and comprehensive range of facilities and amenities, has become an increasingly sought-after location for both homeseekers and investors. The Taman Connaught MRT Station, just six stops away from the Tun Razak Exchange, will soon house several financial services companies and integrated retail hubs.
“In addition to its strategic proximity to the MRT station, we have ensured that The Connaught One caters to all age groups. The development features semi-indoor playgrounds, allowing children to play outdoors regardless of the weather. Moreover, approximately 84% of the units are north-south facing, emphasising practicality,” explained UEM Sunrise chief development officer, Mardiana Rahayu Tukiran.
“Given its close proximity to the MRT station, the development has been designed in a way that minimises noise disturbances for residents,” Mardiana added.
The future of living: The RISE Series
With a gross development value of RM747 million, The Connaught One signifies the introduction of the RISE Series, a part of UEM Sunrise’s Happy+ product series. The RISE Series aims to cater to the unique lifestyle needs of different customer segments. 

The homes in the RISE Series offer flexible and adaptable spaces that can be customised to suit the preferences and requirements of homebuyers, promising limitless value propositions. These practical and well-designed homes provide residents with simplicity, recreation, and convenience.
“The Connaught One serves as the inaugural launch of the RISE Series, targeting specific buyer segments, such as first jobbers, young couples, first-time homebuyers, multigenerational families, and of course not forgetting the asset accumulators, downgraders, empty nesters and investors. We have taken great care in ensuring that the development caters to the distinct needs of each group,” emphasised UEM Sunrise chief marketing officer, Kenny Wong. 
“The overwhelmingly positive response from the public, with an 85% take-up rate for Tower A even before the official launch, reflects the strong appeal of The Connaught One.”
