The pavilion will look exactly as the renderings. The picture of the construction site shows the understructure cladding and not the exterior finishing. The building should now be completed. Any new pictures around?

PJCC Development’s on-site sales office depicts its futuristic project concept
By EUGENE MAHALINGAM Saturday March 26, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=527



Jacqueline Daniele Roberts ...‘We wanted it to be
something unique, iconic, futuristic and symbolic.’


WHEN PJCC Development Sdn Bhd decided to build its on-site sales office and showroom gallery for its ongoing integrated commercial hub project, Petaling Jaya Commercial City (PJCC), the challenges were many.

As PJCC Development managing director Jacqueline Daniele Roberts recalls, the company wasn't looking to develop a bland, flat structure.

“We wanted it (the on-site sales office and showroom gallery) to be something unique, iconic, futuristic and symbolic to represent the whole development,” she tells StarBizWeek.

The final output was The Pod, a structure that has to be seen to be believed.

Roberts says one of the major concerns was whether the final structure would end up resembling how it looked on paper.

“It was a complicated building to build and whenever you want to build something unusual, it's always a challenge. When you see something in a rendered picture, it does not resemble exactly the image you initially intended once it's completed.

“We were also concerned about appointing the right contractors. The Pod has over 20 individual steel ribs each having different shapes and sizes.”

Fortunately for PJCC Development, everything fell into place, says Roberts.

“There was no specific picture given to the architects. We just wanted something that stood out. But with the first draft (of the designs), we knew it was what we wanted.”

The Pod was designed by architects of Hijjas Kasturi from Malaysia, in collaboration with Studio Nicoletti of Italy. The latter has worked on key projects such as the Palermo Sport Palace, the Italian Parliament Conference Centre and the Hall of Justice in Arezzo.

Water droplets were the inspiration for The Pod, creating a dynamic spherical form resulting in a primitive building archetype with a modern twist.

The Pod stands out the most when viewed from the sky. The building appears to be sliced diagonally into a series of ribbons, its shape formed in a series of elliptical sections of variable widths and heights.

The structure is fabricated from tubular steel members with the exterior made of reflective aluminium panels. Its exterior colour shades also changes depending on the reflection of the sun.

Roberts is not revealing how much was invested to build The Pod.

“It wasn't cheap,” she says, adding that The pod took about 12 months (from conception to completion).

The Pod has a floor size of 7,500 sq ft, Internally, it is divided into two parts. One zone is dedicated to the corporate office area while the main showroom and sales gallery.

PJCC Development will be officially launching The Pod on March 31 in a ceremony that will be officiated by Petaling Jaya mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman as well as the Italian architects and its ambassadors.

Roberts says design of The Pod has also inspired PJCC Development to replicate it for other structures.

“Everyone who's seen it says it'd make a fantastic design for a house,” he says, laughing.

“We would like to make similar designs for other projects but for now, it's a one-off thing.”

When looking at a miniature model of the company's entire PJCC development (in its show gallery), The Pod is however nowhere in sight. A few blocks of office towers, instead, are visible where it (The Pod) should be.

That's because the office towers will be built where the The Pod is currently located.

But because of its unique structure and appeal, Roberts says the company may just reconsider its plans.

“We have all gotten quite fond of it (The Pod). It's a beautiful building and we may review our plans (to build the office towers). We may build the towers around The Pod instead,” she says.

Nestled along the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), PJCC is being developed in multiple phases over a period of 10 years. Construction began in 2006.

Its first phase comprises 750,000 sq ft of shop offices. To date, 500,000 sq ft of built-up space have been completed, all of which have been fully sold.

Roberts says the shop offices were went for RM130 per sq ft in 2007 and today costs about RM350 per sq ft.

Next to be launched by year-end is a 13-storey corporate tower, a 380-rooms four-star hotel and a block of 180 units of serviced apartments. There are also plans to build more office space and a shopping complex.

The overall mix development's projected gross development value (GDV) is estimated at RM2bil. Once fully completed, PJCC will feature approximately 2.5 million sq ft of prime commercial properties.

According to Roberts, PJCC was recently voted to be year 2011's top three hotspot for investment in Klang Valley, Malaysia by 250 property's investors in Swhengtee International Real Estate Investors Club's Forecast Seminar.

PJCC to be iconic landmark
By Rosalynn Poh of Theedgeproperty.com
Friday, 01 April 2011 16:53



PETALING JAYA: PJCC Development Sdn Bhd, the developer of Petaling Jaya Commercial Centre (PJCC), plans to transform its 33-acre tract into an iconic architectural landmark in the city.

The mixed commercial development project with a gross development value (GDV) of about RM2 billion is situated off Jalan PJS2 near Bandar Sunway. It is accessible via the New Pantai Expressway (NPE). PJCC Development is part of the MKH group, which is also affiliated with the Pulai Springs group.

The developer recently completed the project’s show gallery called The Pod, which was launched yesterday. The event was officiated by Petaling Jaya mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman and Italian ambassador Folco De La Luca.

sales gallery.

“We’ve invested a significant amount in this project. Building this show gallery took us under 12 months to complete. This shows our commitment to building something that will not only look amazing, but which can benefit the community and the building industry,” PJCC Development managing director Jacqueline Daniele Roberts told The Edge Financial Daily in an interview.

“Instead of an ordinary gallery, we felt it was important to create a unique structure that would convey the individuality of PJCC,” she said in her speech at the launch.
During PJCC’s launch three years ago, 80 shop-offices were sold at RM120,000 each. Prices of these units have increased five-fold since, especially when the NPE was completed two years ago, said Roberts. The second phase, comprising 45 shop-offices, is currently under construction.

After launching the first two phases and while exploring options with different architects for the rest of the development, the developer decided to go with the design by a partnership of award-winning architects: Italy’s Studio Nicoletti Associati and Malaysia’s Hijjas Kasturi Associates Sdn Bhd.

With the new masterplan, the third phase will mark a change to the development’s concept and design, said Roberts. “This phase will comprise a 200,000 sq ft retail complex, serviced apartments, a corporate tower and hotel. The launch for this phase is expected sometime in 3Q this year, pending approvals,” she added.

Initial plans are for high-end retail with mainly food outlets and a supermarket, a 5-star hotel with more than 400 rooms and 80 luxury apartments with built-up areas ranging between 500 and 1,500 sq ft.

Proposed projects in the pipeline for PJCC’s other phases include a 150-room boutique hotel, a business park and about six corporate towers.


PJCC will comprise around five phases and the developer expects to take five to 10 years to complete the entire project.

So they are really going ahead with that design?

But the shop lots look too common to blend in with the high rises

Yup, but let's hope for the best and we can then see uniquely-designed egg-shaped buildings in the years to come!

And there will be two nice hotels in PJCC ya? Hopefully the developers will not manage the hotels themselves (as is the trend today), but let reputable parties do the job. PJ is lacking in international-class hotels anyway, and good brands to consider include Sheraton / Novotel / Mercure / Hyatt Regency / Pan Pacific / etc...

Hahaha, I can only imagine the boutique hotel becoming a Kempinski and the larger one managed by Crowne Plaza, since their Mutiara property is about to be demolished!

Wow, the real thing (i.e. that cocoon-shape structure) looks really good... And the setting in a pond makes it even better, hope the developers make it a permanent one and not to be replaced by the office tower!
