There are many tallest towers in the world. However, the tallest twin tower is still our very own Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur. (Read here in worldatlas.com to know where the rest of the twin towers of the world are) Yes, it’s taller than all those in the U.S., China, Hong Kong, U.A.E, Bahrain and India. My very earlier on article here. What about a potentially tallest twin tower in Kuala Lumpur city? It’s going to be 225m tall! Here’s that exciting news in edgeprop.my just a few days back.
This new landmark in KL city centre is called The Landmark@KL City. It’s a 225 metres tall residential building and will be completed in 2023. The developer is Singapore-listed developer Debao Property Development Ltd. The estimated gross development value is RM2.2 billion and the Landmark@KL City will come up on the 2.07-acre freehold former site of SJK (C) Imbi School at Jalan Horley next to Berjaya Times Square. Debao Property Development deputy CEO Zeng Yong Bao said, “This is our first wholly-owned overseas project. We set foot in Malaysia about 10 years ago, but the projects that we have done in the past are joint-venture projects outside KL city.” He added, “We decided to venture into the Malaysian market because of the good ties between China and Malaysia and the latter’s stable political and business-friendly environment. We also see KL as an international city where one can get a high quality house at a relatively low price.”
Debao Property Development sales director Alan Wong explained that The Landmark@KL City consists of the 72-storey North Tower and the 73-storey South Tower, both sharing a 13-storey podium which will house the lobby, a multi-storey and mechanical car park and common facilities. The two towers will have a total of 1,338 serviced apartments with built-ups from 558 sq ft to 1,150 sq ft. The project is expected to be launched by end of the second quarter or early third quarter of this year with an initial 300 units to be open for sale at an average price of RM2,500 psf. The project offers various layouts as follows: studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedrooms, 3-bedrooms, 3+1 bedrooms, 4+1 bedrooms and duplex units to suit the needs of various types of buyers. Facilities include a sky restaurant, rooftop garden, a 53m-long infinity pool and a mechanical car park system. The Landmark@KL City is being developed by Elite Starhill Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Debao. Elite Starhill purchased the land at RM388 million or about RM4,311 psf and the transaction was completed in 2016. Here’s that article for reference in edgeprop.my
All the best to KL’s new twin-tower landmark in the future.
