The Central Transportation Hub of Kuala Lumpur

The Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD is highly regarded as the “Pulse of the Nation”, and for good reason. It is a successful fully planned multi-award winning development which rejuvenates the entire country.

Also recognised as the country’s Next Generation CBD, Kuala Lumpur Sentral is an acknowledged flagship transport oriented development (TOD) which is surrounded by some of the most highly valued real estate in the city – and as a TOD, it has unparalleled advantages with a combination of connectivity, convenience and convergence that meet with the world’s ever changing needs.

This purpose-built development enjoys seamless integration to Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur, providing residents of the CBD with unparalleled access to places, jobs and economic opportunities. On top of that, they are also connected to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) via the Express Rail Link (ERL) in only 28 minutes.

The idea of Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD was first conceived in 1994, when the government handed the privatisation contract to Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB) to construct Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur. Situated on 72 acres of land in a century old area would be the country’s future hub of transportation – and the beginning of the Kuala Lumpur Sentral development.

Following three years of negotiations, Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur was surrendered to the government in 1997 in exchange for development rights over the surrounding 72 acres of freehold commercial land which would later be known as Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD. It would comprise of 19 million square feet of gross floor area, making it the largest commercial development in the Malaysian capital.

The result of handing the entire development plan over to a sole entity ensured that this would be one of the most well-planned CBDs in Malaysia once it was realised, and by incorporating some of the top criteria of every successful development, Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD became the top business and lifestyle address in Malaysia.

Some of its more remarkable features are its exceptional accessibility and connectivity, green lifestyle, CBD-style living, excellent mix of businesses and entertainment centres. Even the mix of businesses here are chosen by design rather than by accident, ranging from SME businesses to Fortune 500 MNCs. Sprinkled in among the mix are retail outlets, international hotels, banks, airline companies, green residential spaces, F&B outlets and even a park with facilities for children.

The Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD has proven so successful, that it has met all demands the demands of urban consumers, travellers and global businesses. So successful is the development of Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD, that the northern transport hub of Penang Sentral and Kwasa Sentral in Sungai Buloh seek to emulate its success. The newest offering to Kuala Lumpur Sentral — Sentral Suites is set to realise the dream of staying in one of the most connected area in Kuala Lumpur.
