With the mention of Seputeh, what usually springs to mind? Often, people would think of Mid Valley Megamall. Now, a new image is slowly, but surely, being etched in minds – 9 Seputeh in Old Klang Road by MRCB Land Sdn Bhd.
Beyond just elevating the evolving landscape of Old Klang Road as well as introducing urban experiences and modish lifestyles within 9 Seputeh, MRCB Land has rejuvenated old apartments and shop lots surrounding 9 Seputeh.
It is this distinct and community-led approach that saw 9 Seputeh garnering multiple accolades such as the Best Mixed Use Development category at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) in 2019.
MRCB Land also enhanced the value of the properties and the environment there. It does so artistically by adding eye-catching mural paintings at the UPC shoplots, and repainting Gemilang Condominium, both of which are just steps away from 9 Seputeh.
The VIVO series (phase 1) and Tria Seputeh (phase 2) form part of the 9 Seputeh integrated development, with a gross development value (GDV) of RM2.1 billion. Towering into the skyline of timeless Old Klang Road, 9 Seputeh has raised the bar with its array of signature retail and commercial components, stylish residences and its latest VIVO Suites.
The development is set on a 17.4-acre stretch of prime land with a dedicated link to the New Pantai Expressway (NPE) and complemented by a 1-km greenery Promenade Boulevard riverside park, which is an extension of the successful River of Life project.
Towering Over A Changing Landscape
Launched in 2014, VIVO occupies 7.96 acres, and it encompasses serviced apartment (VIVO Residences), retail (VIVO Signature Retail) and small office home office (VIVO Suites) components.
VIVO is actually Latin for ‘Live’, and the development certainly lives up to its namesake! It’s a place where you can live it up, within the residences, at work, or when shopping at the retail lots. The residential units start from Level 10, for each tower. All 4 towers (Block A, B, C & D) are connected, with a facility deck on the 9th floor.
The VIVO Residences has 1,111 units and built-ups range from 775 sq ft to 2,593 sq ft. The residential high-rise goes big on choices, in both unit types and facilities. There are 12 unit types. However, most have been sold, and these are the available types:
Type K – 1,098 sq ft, 3 bedrooms
Type D – 1,238 sq ft, 3 bedrooms
Type L – 1,288 sq ft, 3 bedrooms
There are a total of a whopping 57 facilities, and here’s a peek at just some of them:
For residents, an elevated lifestyle awaits, literally. The landscape at 9 Seputeh takes inspiration from the courtyard gardens of Alhambra, Spain, with sprawling open green plazas, expansive body of water, landscaped riverbanks, environmental decks, and green vertical walls.
There’s a 5-acre landscaped deck elevated on Level 9, and it’s akin to a modern-day hanging gardens. Residents can unwind or stay active in the two swimming pools, putting greens, jogging track, tennis court, jacuzzi, sky gym, or zen garden. The facilities bring a sense of luxury, relaxation, and entertainment, and done so beautifully by architecture, landscaping, and interior design stalwarts such as Veritas Architect Sdn Bhd, Veritas Landscape Sdn Bhd, and Designtone Sdn Bhd, respectively.
The projects under VIVO series has been completed, and 90% of the residential units have been sold. You can still purchase VIVO units, and those available range from 1,098 sq ft to 2,593 sq ft. MRCB is also offering a Stay to Own scheme for owner-occupiers who seek flexible payments. This scheme allows purchasers to pay just 5% and start living in their new home. However, the scheme applies to limited and selected units, so it’s best to engage with MRCB for this.
Complementing the integrated urban fabric of 9 Seputeh is VIVO Signature Retail, the commercial component of the VIVO series. MRCB Land manages VIVO Signature Retail and by doing so, they’ll ensure the right tenant mix and a sustainable eco-system.
VIVO Signature Retail opened its doors in early 2020, and anchor tenants secured include Campus Rangers International School and 7-Eleven. Campus Rangers occupies 72,000 sq ft (most of the retail units in Block C). There are many retail lots still available in the two other blocks, with 221,869 sq ft available for rent or purchase. The lot sizes range from size of 2,217 sq ft to 11,345 sq ft. Take a look at the retail hall here: https://virtualshowcase.mrcbland.com.my

Luxury Living At Tria Seputeh
The 4.6-acre Tria Seputeh is poised to be a contemporary landmark that is inspired by nature with a spectacular riverfront location. It comprises three marvellous towers named Pelto, Ebon, and Cavi with 734 total units, 17 river-fronting villas, and residential retail lots (which are not for sale, and will be handed over to the JMB to manage). This makes Tria Seputeh a pure residential development, which is an added advantage.
There are 12 unit types to choose from, and it is low density with only 7 to 11 units per floor. Units at Ebon range from 1,518 sq ft to 2,874 sq ft with three to five bedrooms, while Pelto and Cavi are from 764 sq ft to 1,733 sq ft with two to four bedrooms.

With its brilliant green theme, it is no wonder that Tria Seputeh is GBI-certified, with efficient ventilation and water harvesting system. For those looking to enrol their children into a good school, the Campus Rangers International School at VIVO Signature Retail is located just about 200m away.
For even more options for residents to mingle, there’s a private elite residents’ clubhouse where adults and kids will have space to call their own – Private Lounge, Teens’ Club, and Kids’ Edu Club. The areas for kids are designed so craftily that adults wouldn’t mind being there and tickle the kid in their hearts. When they’re ready to feel adult again, the private lounge offers dining tables and comfy chairs that are conducive for chit-chat, with views of the gorgeous KL skyline.
Now, let’s not forget about the facilities on Level 8, shared by the three towers. The treehouse and water brook look like a tourist attraction, and is definitely Instagram-mable for days. The treehouse is ultra-stylised, and the elevated walkway might remind some of the one in Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. In total, residents have a choice of 52 resort-type facilities.
Be it staying in, or venturing into the various leisure and entertainment areas, residents are guaranteed to feel oh-so good day in, day out. Tria Seputeh is also secured with a 3-tier system. The towers are expected to be completed in Q4 of 2022, and prices start from RM736,800. For more info on Tria Seputeh, visit https://triaseputeh.com.my
The Seputeh/Old Klang Road neighbourhood itself is strategically centred, with Taman Desa, Bangsar, and Brickfields, surrounding it. Residents will have plenty of amenities to cater to their daily needs, depending on the neighbourhood they prefer.
Straddling 9 Seputeh are the New Pantai Expressway (NPE) and Federal Highway. The development is connected to the Old Klang Road-New Pantai Expressway link bridge. This OKR-NPE link bridge eases the traffic flow on Old Klang Road and the surrounding Seputeh area, while enhancing connectivity to the primary road network for the communities of Pantai Dalam, PPR Sri Pantai, PPR Kampung Limau, Kampung Kerinchi, Taman Bukit Angkasa, and Perumahan Pantai Permai. It also passes through 9 Seputeh, which helps boost property values and commercial activities in the surrounding area.
MRCB spent close to RM115 million to construct the 1km OKR-NPE link bridge. The construction of the link bridge commenced in 2015, and was opened to the public in November 2018. The bridge is used by 80% private vehicles and 20% commercial vehicles. This benefits 20,000 residents and helps ease traffic congestion on the Federal Highway, NPE, and Old Klang Road. It reduces the travelling distance from Bangsar to Old Klang Road, from approximately 5.5km to 2km, and the distance from Taman Desa to Subang and Klang is reduced by about 5km. Added accessibility include the Maju Expressway (MEX) and the East-West Link Expressway, which are a short distance away.
The multiple roads and expressways put residents within a short drive to these popular destinations:
Mid Valley: 500m
Bandar Malaysia: 1.8km
KL Sentral: 2km
PJ new town: 3km
1 Utama: 5km
Sunway Pyramid: 6km
Subang Parade: 7km
Elevating Urban Living
Let’s circle back to MRCB’s commitment to rejuvenating surrounding landscapes. Another enhancement to 9 Seputeh is the 1.6km promenade boulevard and riverside park which will be connected to food and beverage outlets. The attractions at the riverside also include a picnic area, jogging path, parcourse, nature walk, bicycle kiosk, cycling path, playground, stepping stones and skate park. Residents will have direct access to these amenities.
In fact, MRCB invested approximately RM10 million in the promenade boulevard and riverside park as part of the River of Life eco-project. They say the proof is in the pudding, and a visit to 9 Seputeh will showcase why life there is indeed sweeter.
So, there’s plenty to keep multi-generational families living at 9 Seputeh occupied and active, be it on their own or with family and friends. 9 Seputeh skilfully bridges the divide between function and style, work and play. Will it become the mainstay of the Old Klang Road landscape? The answer is a resounding yes!
