Master Community Developer, Sunway Property has received MSC Cybercentre status from Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) for its Sunway Velocity and Sunway Velocity TWO developments, making it the first Cybercentre in Cheras.
The MSC Malaysia Cybercentre status is for the 30.42-acre area which encompasses both developments with Menara Sunway Visio, a corporate office tower with a net lettable area of approximately 200,000 square feet being the designated premises for the MSC status.
The MSC Cybercentre status is awarded to city, townships, or large building complexes for providing dedicated and specialised industry areas for MSC- status companies or Information and Communications Technology (ICT)-facilitated businesses to locate their operations. They serve as the physical location to catalyse and support growth of ICT and ICT-enabled industries and seek to extend the benefit of ICT to local communities.
Sunway Property’s flagship township, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur is Sunway Property’s first MSC-status township and Malaysia Digital Hub and currently houses thousands of businesses including multinational corporations which are leveraging the talent pool and research capabilities of the universities within the vicinity including Sunway University as well as the network and expertise of its incubator, Sunway Innovation Labs (Sunway iLabs). Sunway City Kuala Lumpur currently functions as a “living lab” where businesses, academia, students and researchers are working together to test-bed solutions.
Sunway Berhad’s Property Development Division Central Region Executive Director, Chong Sau Min said that Sunway Velocity is an ideal growth venue for information and communication technology (ICT) companies.
“Sunway Velocity is surrounded by 15 institutions of higher education within 15 km. These institutions will provide a vibrant talent pool of thousands of students and vast research collaboration potential. In addition to that, we are located just 3.8 km away from KL City Centre, which is just two stops away by MRT to which the development is linked. Businesses here will also have full lifestyle support, such as the 1 million square feet Sunway Velocity Mall, Sunway Medical Centre and Hotel as well as a two-acre park.”
“At MSC Malaysia Cybercentre @ Sunway Velocity, we aim to leverage the experience we have gathered in Sunway City Kuala Lumpur to develop an innovation hub. Leveraging on our experience, we will build a networking or value-added programme for the business community, as well as implement an incubation programme for startups,” he said.
Currently Sunway Property is setting up a one-stop centre cybermanagement office which will run an incubator to nurture entrepreneurs, provide business development programmes, and act as a customer service centre for businesses within Sunway Velocity.
“Once completed, we will assist our businesses communities here to collaborate with institutions of higher learning around the area with focus on developing artificial intelligence solutions for healthcare in collaboration with Sunway Medical Centre Velocity
,” added Chong.
Sunway Velocity is connected to two (2) existing Mass Rail Transit (MRT) stations, which are Maluri station (LRT interchange station) and Cochrane station and the upcoming Chan Sow Lin MRT and LRT interchange station. With the support of public transportation that connects to the MSC Malaysia Cybercentre @ Sunway Velocity, it is paved to be the potential commercial hub for businesses and investments.
