Quadro Residences has the privilege to have the “No 1, KLCC Drive” address designate, and charges a right premium for it! It is on the same row as the Exxon Mobil Towers, Park Seven condominiums and the exquisite Binjai On The Park. Fancy taking a stroll down at the 50 acre KLCC Park? We’ll it’s literally just across the road.

A freehold development right smack in the centre of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) enclave, Quadro Residences is developed by Monoland Corporation Sdn Bhd, a Malaysia real estate developer with these notable projects in the Klang Valley: the neighboring KLCC developments of Soho KLCC, Vipod KLCC; as well as Titiwangsa Sentral condominiums.
Monoland is also well known for its property projects in Penang: namely the Northam Tower, Gurney Beach condominiums and the Central Park in Penang. A very established developer indeed (although can be somewhat controversial – more on this later).
Quadro KLCC Prices
Compared to Vipod, Quadro Residence is seen as more premium with a higher asking price. However, the price per square feet seems to be higher on Vipod’s size because it (Vipod) has got smaller units.
Also, while both developments occupy a landsize with is rather identical, Quadro is less dense with only seven units per floor (compared to Vipod which has got eleven units per floor).
The launch prices were around RM1.5 to RM2 million. At the time of writing this review, units are going for a (negotiable?) RM1,000 to RM1,500 per sq ft according to some listings that we saw on local property portals. Supply is rather limited at the publication of this review; this would probably drive the prices up in the shorter term.

The Elusive Petronas Twin Towers View
While Quadro is inside the KLCC enclave, there are only two units which get the Petronas Twin Towers view. These are bigger units which had a premium asking price of RM2 million during its preview launch a couple of years back, and should be well above that figure right now.
Fancy a KLCC Duplex Unit?
If you’re into an “entry level” duplex unit in KLCC then Quadro should feature right up there in your list. Why? The reason is pretty simple. At 1,591 sq ft, it would be one of the smallest duplex units for a KLCC condominium unit. Contrast this with, say, Suria Stonor (5,447 sq ft), One KL (3,606 sq ft) or Dua Residency (3,502 sq ft). Now don’t get me started with the Four Seasons Place penthouses which got sold for RM37 million each (11,900 sq ft). Ballin’ …
The duplex units face the south direction and this means that there’s a Bukit Bintang view that makes up for the lack of the KLCC view.
Location, Location, Location…
In terms of location, Quadro Residence enjoys one of the best spots inside the KLCC area. Tenants will enjoy all the trappings (and prestige) of being inside the KLCC enclave – easy access to amenities and shopping centres (Suria KLCC, the Bukit Bintang area) as well as the night spots on Jalan P Ramlee. Want peace and quiet? Maybe try Bukit Tunku. 🙂

All In All…
Quadro seems to be frequently compared to Vipod, but in reality both developments address rather distinct market segments although there are some shared traits. We tend to favor the Quadro more although as prices get closer to RM1,500 PSF point the appeal wears off a little (as there are other more appealing properties at that price level).
Depending on your investment goals (capital outlay, time period, rental vs capital yield goals), you might even decide to pay a little above the “fair market value” which you can compute using this simple guide –
