Klang’s burgeoning retail scene has gone from strength to strength in recent years due, in no small part, to the stylish contributions of developer Rivertree Signatures.
The latest addition from this up-and-coming lifestyle developer is a precinct that promises to provide the Bandar Bukit Raja neighbourhood with a cultural epicentre comprising eateries, retail stores, and entertainment outlets.
Set to open in mid-2021, Uno @ Bukit Raja is the latest project from Rivertree Signatures, the development arm of Rivertree Group.
The Group, which initially launched in 2003, recently moved into the development sector after gaining a solid foundation in construction and project management works and currently counts four properties within its portfolio.
Yet, it is the 31-unit commercial project that recently earned the nascent developer its inaugural PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) win at last year’s ceremony.
“Sleek full-length glass facades and spacious individual units elevate the retail-therapy experience in Selangor with the exclusive Uno @ Bukit Raja,” the judges noted. “Developer Rivertree Signatures creates a modern shopping hub in the old royal town of Klang that is lifestyle friendly, with a contemporary character and subtle touches of classic design.”
The eye-catching design comes courtesy of renowned firm O2 Architects, which aims to evoke early 20th century Art Deco and Modernist style architecture with its use of bold, creative facades, spacious outdoor community areas, and a retro-themed KFC drive-thru.
Anticipated to be an attraction itself, this ‘Instagrammable’ drive-thru is inspired by post-war America’s fast-food chain boom with the brand’s bold colours and signage smartly incorporated into the building’s exterior.
Elsewhere, the central retail building features 24 single-storey spaces, each of which overlooks a pedestrianised central plaza, in addition to seven double-storey units, all with floor-to-ceiling glass facades and a connecting mezzanine floor.
The multipurpose plaza will play host a series of public and commercial events and is set to become a popular gathering point for both locals and workers seeking social and professional engagements.
Upon completion, Uno will join Rivertree Signature’s first commercial district, Duo, which launched in late 2019. The freehold development has already welcomed a slew of reputable brands, as well as an international school.
With a thriving business community materialising, many are optimistic that this will be just the first stage of a new injection of life into the neighbourhood. Indeed, its central location in the rapidly growing commercial centre of Bandar Bukit Raja, close to several major highways, also makes Uno easily accessible for commuters.
Although Rivertree Signatures is a relatively new addition to Malaysia’s property development scene, the boutique company is making a name for itself across multiple markets with projects such as residential property Garisan Puchong on the outskirts of KL and resort-style condo Kajang in Kajang.
