Kampung Baru does its part to preserve Malay heritage amid modernisation

BY JAROD LIM

Cultural features: The traditional houses in Kampung Baru bear a significant Malay architecture identity.

KAMPUNG Baru made headlines recently after the launch of Kampong Bharu Detailed Development Masterplan (PITPKB) in January, which introduced an RM43bil facelift for the area in the next 20 years.

The redevelopment plans, by the Kampung Baru Development Corporation (PKB), focused on three aspects namely preserving its cultural element, green development with beautiful parks and landscaping and sustainable development.

With such massive development planned for the 115-year- old neighbourhood, Kuala Lumpur’s landscape will definitely see a change.

Kampung Baru, the heart of the Malay community, sits in an ideal location in the city centre, and offers a contrast as it remains locked in time compared to the rapid development taking place around the area.

The village was founded as a Malay community or Malay Agricultural Settlement by the British government in 1899.

Foodies delight: There are many eateries in Kampung Baru.
Uniquely enough, Kampung Baru is the only village that is managed by the Malay Agricultural Settlement (MAS) Kampong Baru which takes care of the village’s affairs and the needs of residents.

According to Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), MAS was formed on Jan 12, 1900 by the Federated Malay States on 90.2ha of land awarded by the fifth Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sir Alae’ddin Suleiman.

Kampung Baru was also gazetted as one of the Malay Reserved Areas (MRA) in Kuala Lumpur in which MRAs were created under the Malay Reservation Enactment of 1913 and the Land Enactment of 1987.

The objective of the legislation was to ensure the Malays would be able to own land, especially in urban areas.

Kampung Baru encompasses seven small villages and each has an elected penghulu (chieftain).

Worlds apart: Aerial shot of Kampung Baru showing a contrast between the modern skyscrapers and a traditional village smack in the centre of Kuala Lumpur.

Accessibility into the area is not an issue as the Kampung Baru LRT and Medan Tunku Monorail station are located in the vicinity.

Kampung Baru City Centre beckons

by hanis zainal

KUALA LUMPUR: The redevelopment of Kampung Baru will bring a host of benefits for the community, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Najib said that the Government is committed in ensuring that Kampung Baru is developed into a modern area, complete with a new infrastructure and a central business area.

"The redevelopment of this area has always been a dream, and a way forward is to focus the redevelopment to a core area," he said, adding that the centre of Kampung Baru has been dubbed as the Kampung Baru City Centre (KBCC).

He said that the centre would be turned into an area filled with offices, hotels, and promenades for the public.

"I want Malays in Kampung Baru to be seen as a modern community with a respectable economic and social standing," he said, adding that he does not want the community to be left out from the progress the country is making.

Najib was speaking at a groundbreaking ceremony for UDA Holdings Berhad's housing project - Legasi Kampung Bharu - here on Sunday.

The project will see 2.858 acres of land in Kampung Baru turned into mixed development of 639 housing units, 48 business units, and a 30-storey tower housing amenities such as a library, gymnasium, and childcare centre.

I hope the water body could be wide enough for the public to enjoy KL's CBD skylines like in Singapore Marina.

Them developers should not worry about sacrifying the net area of developments, instead they can charge it a lot higher with the priceless view they can offer.

Thinking about the preservation of Malay Heritage, which I think means a few historic buildings are possibly going to be preserved, then how much of the Kampung Baru area is going to be filled with skyscrapers? If I had a guess, I'd say at least half of the area, or maybe 70%.

AFTER more than a century stuck in time, Kampung Baru is set for dramatic changes that will see several ambitious projects coming up in the Malay enclave over the next 10 to 20 years.

Some of the main projects include the Kampong Bharu City Centre (KBCC) that will become the focal point of the area.

Projects under the KBCC will include a plush park called KBCC Central Park with pedestrian walkways, pocket parks and water features.

Twelve iconic buildings with four signature towers with a collective gross development value in the billions of ringgit will also be built here.

Another ambitious project is a 70-storey tower with a ferris wheel built on the rooftop.

Ready to boom

“Kampung Baru is set to boom,” said Kampong Bharu Development Corporation (PKB) chairman Datuk Affendi Zahari in an exclusive with StarMetro recently.

“Things are in motion already, ever since the government launched the Kampung Baru Detailed Development Master Plan early last year.”

The rustic village is slated to become the new Malay cultural centre and the city’s new economic hub with 1,900 hotel rooms, 30mil sq ft of office space, 17,500 residential units and 12% green and water feature space.

“The UDA legacy has begun and piling work is already going on. It will take a few years but we will get there,” Affendi said referring to the UDA Holdings Bhd initiative to help rejuvenate Kampung Baru.

The company is undertaking a RM400mil mixed development project on a 1.15ha tract of land near the Pasar Minggu.

To kickstart the redevelopment process, the 60-year-old blue gantry located in Jalan Raja Muda Musa, which has been one of the landmarks in the village, will be removed and replaced with a modern structure measuring 19m in height and 16m in width.

“The design will be modern contemporary with traditional motifs. The original design was very Arabic, but after we showed it to the Prime Minister, he asked ‘Why Arabic? Why not Malay?’. So we had that changed to reflect the Malay traditions based on a songket theme.

“We have already sent the paperwork and drawings for approval by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

“A tender will be called by DBKL, and if everything goes according to plan, we expect the gateway to be up this year,” Affendi said.

“It’s going to be more than iconic, we want Kampung Baru folk to see something is moving here before the big guns come in,” Affendi said, referring to the bigger developments.

He hoped to inspire the residents to have some trust in PKB by then.

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 8 (Bernama) -- Kampong Baru Development Corporation (PKB) plans to build the most exquisite pedestrian bridge ever built here in the capital that would connect Kampung Baru and the city centre.

Its chairman Datuk Affendi Zahari said the project dubbed 'The Saloma Link', an 68-metre long pedestrian bridge between Lorong Raja Muda Musa 3 (near the LRT Kampung Baru Station) and Lorong Saloma (near Menara Public Bank), across the AKLEH Highway, is scheduled to kick off its construction by end of this year and completed within one and a half years.

Affendi said an initial cost of RM20 million was allocated for the planned project.

"This is not just an ordinary bridge, it would be one of the iconic development in KL. I'm confident that the project would attract more locals and tourist to Kampung Baru," he told Bernama when met recently.



He said when the bridge is completed with its amazing architecture, it would be more than just an ordinary bridge.

Affendi said the bridge will be installed with state of the art lighting system that would highlight the uniqueness of the bridge at night, similar, to the Bridge of Peace in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Even the angle of the bridge is set to give the most satisfying view of the tallest twin towers in the world and the best area for foreigners to take their photos, he added.

He said the bridge architectural concept would resemblance 'Sirih Junjung' (betel nut leaf arrangement) which reflects the Malay culture.

Commenting further, Affendi said Kampung Baru is being redeveloped bit-by-bit due to the complex nature of land ownership in the area and PKB had to be flexible in developing Kampung Baru.

It was previously reported that Kampung Baru would undergo a RM43 billion facelift over the next 20 years.
