Platinum Victory Defining Moments
Backed with decades of experience in the property development industry, Platinum Victory is set to continue creating magical moments for its clientele.
Popular with its high-rise projects in the city especially in Setapak with the acronym PV, it is recognised as one of the most sought-after developers in Kuala Lumpur for its practical and reasonable developments, be it residential or commercial.
Delivering over 10,000 homes and shops with comfortable sizes and practical layouts through the years, Platinum Victory has carved its name as a reputable developer of quality.
Holding true to sustainable improvements and innovation towards excellence, its business model has charted many defining moments for Platinum Victory.
Buoyant with the success of its Platinum Hill projects, Platinum Victory began to chart out its masterplan for its next big tract of land in Danau Kota near the lake and Platinum Lake City was conceived.
The first was Platinum Walk, a commercial 4-storey retail development which completed in 2008 and quickly followed by PV10 condominium. PV12 was completed in 2010 and then came PV13, together with PV128, a sprawling 4-storey commercial building delivered in 2011. PV15 and PV16 followed consecutively in 2012 and 2013 while PV20 in 2014.
Gaining the trust and acknowledgment from its buyers in Melati Utama for its Platinum Hill projects, Platinum Victory continues its momentum with PV7 commercial shop lots in 2008 and PV8 condominium in 2010, followed by PV2 in 2013.
These developments have carved many exhilarating moments for Platinum Victory which brings it to the next stage of growth.
Platinum Victory foray into property development began in the late 90’s when the economic turbulence and sentiments were not favourable towards new developments or business.
However, perseverance and confidence in believing that its project holds much value and the need for home ownership is a necessity, Platinum Victory launched Pelangi Condominium, a 288-unit high-rise residence in Sentul which was very well-received in 2002.
Soon after, it began acquiring land in Setapak and the master plan for Platinum Hill developed into fruition in 2005, concentrating in Melati Utama with the roll out of PV1 shop lots and condominiums PV3 and PV5. PV6 condominium completed in 2007.
These projects delivering close to 3,000 homes and shop lots demarcated Platinum Victory as one of the pioneer developers in the area.
Its fledging moments makes it a journey well begun for Platinum Victory.
Continuing to push for excellence, Platinum Victory embarked on a distinct project within the Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle at Jalan Sultan Ismail called The Face Platinum Suites, Platinum Victory’s first luxury residential and commercial development. Phase 1 completed in 2015 to a sold-out success and Phase 2 will be underway in 2018.
Combined with the delivery of PV21 at Platinum Lake City in 2016, Platinum Victory has charted its reputation as a property developer to be reckoned.
Going into hospitality for The Face Platinum Suites was a natural progression for Platinum Victory since the company has been managing Villa Putra Putri, Gerbang Ampang Hilir at the well-known Embassy Row for over a decade as well as many of its developments.
Its passage of active and rapid developments with no compromises has made waves within the industry which is best described as its happening moments while remaining a community developer at heart.
Having said that, it has developed a new brand called VISTA – Essential Homes by Platinum Victory for all its affordable housing projects. Its first called VISTA Semarak at Jalan Semarak, Setapak, KL was a sell-out and its neighbouring VISTA Langkawi along Jalan Langkawi has the largest built-up size at 926 sq feet amongst all the affordable housing scheme in Kuala Lumpur.
The same happening story continued with its VISTA Wirajaya and VISTA Wirajaya 2 early 2018.
Platinum Victory will continue its journey of happening moments with more exciting offerings in the future especially in Setapak, Old Klang Road and Bukit OUG, KL.
