The Robertson is the latest among the upscale residences that have sprouted in the neighborhood of Pudu. The property is an integrated development of the kind commonly found in the real estate market nowadays consisting of residential suites, 3-storey shop lots and a commercial retail mall. The project is the brainchild of Gamuda Land, a developer known for its holistic lifestyle developments.
Gamuda Land developments strictly adhere to CIDB’s (Construction Industry Development Board) Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS) standards. In fact, Gamuda Land was one of the first developers in Malaysia to adopt the system into their building practices and also scored the highest rating in CONQUAS. So future residents can expect The Robertson was built with the highest construction quality possible. Aside from that, The Robertson has been certified with a Provisional Gold Certification under the Green Building Index (GBI). The epitome of green living, the residence is built to maximize natural lighting and ventilation, boasts rainwater harvesting system, abundant recycling disposal facilities, eco-friendly waste-management systems, and efficient energy management practices.
While the location The Robertson is not exactly reflective of its elegance, it doesn’t take away the fact that Pudu is a prime residential location. For those wondering who the Robertsons were and what they did to warrant having their name on a ritzy residence, will unfortunately have to find oneself disheartened to find out that the apartment was named after a road that is nearby the residence. While the residence is actually situated in Jalan Pudu, Jalan Robertson is a small lane that branches out of it, and coincidentally faces the residence. Previously, Pudu was famously known for its Hentian Puduraya, the main bus terminal in Kuala Lumpur; however, after extensive upgrades to include a hotel, bank and food chains, the terminal has been re-named to Pudu Sentral and will now operate as the city bus terminal. It also houses a ticketing counter for buses to Genting. In addition to that, Pudu also has several LRT stations at Plaza Rakyat, Masjid Jamek, and Pasar Seni along with the Monorail station Jalan Imbi. The multiple public transport avenues available assuringly put Suria KLCC and Pavillion a few minutes away and Berjaya Times Square just around the corner. Additional MRT Line 2 stations are also expected to be built soon. Public transportation convenience aside, a number of distinguished schools also call Pudu home namely SK Bukit Nenas Girls School, SK Stella Maris and Victoria Institution. For history buffs, you will be happy to know that Pudu proudly houses a smattering of vintage buildings that add heritage value to the town.
