KLCC has become the nesting ground for high-rise condominiums—high-end, luxurious, and extremely modern. Among them is Hampshire Residences, located on Persiaran Hampshire (“Zone A” according to KLCCcondominiums.my definition), which is only a few minutes away from KLCC by foot.
Note that Persiaran Hampshire also houses a couple other high end condominiums such as 2 Hampshire, Panorama, Hampshire Park and 157 Hampshire Place. We here at KLCCcondominiums.my really fancy the Persiaran Hampshire area because it’s green, tranquil quiet… and yet just a stone’s throw away from the KLCC park. Cheah Siew Mun, head honcho of Zelan Properties (the developer) has described the area as the “last green lung” in the KLCC vicinity. We agree.
This freehold condominium is made up of two blocks which comprise of 33 storeys each. Four of these 33 storeys are car parking bays exclusively for residents. It houses 388 units in total, and its floors are occupied with four to seven residential units.
