LOT D1 @ KLCC | Kuala Lumpur (KLCC) | 60 fl | Pro

What kind of building would you like to see to be built in Lot D (in front of Mandarin Oriental)? Please tell the type of architectural that you would like to see...

I for one, would love to see a smaller version of Skyneedle - squarish version of the Twin Towers. After all, the Twin Towers are the direct descendant of the Skyneedle. 350 meter building would do. It would give a perfect balance to the skyline..

Please tell your architectural preference for this building....

I think the underpass shopin complex will be a good idea.Similar to Singapore's city link

KLCCP to develop last strategic area

BY SUSAN TAM


Datuk Ishak Imam Abas
KLCC Property Holdings Bhd (KLCCP) intends to develop a maximum 1.3 million sq feet of its last strategic area – Lot D – after studying ways to optimise land use.

Without revealing Lot D’s gross development value (GDV), chief executive officer Datuk Ishak Imam Abas said the area was strategic as it was located in front of KLCCP’s five-star Mandarin Oriental hotel.

Its GDV is dependent on the quality and functionalities of the buildings to be built on it, he told reporters after the company AGM in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Ishak said the Lot C development was on track with construction scheduled to start in February and completion of the first phase expected to be 18 months later. This expansion, estimated at about RM500mil, consists of three phases.

The first, known as the Podium, is a six-storey expansion of the existing shopping mall, Suria KLCC. The second is a 21-storey office block while the final phase consists of 26-storey service apartments.

The potential revenue from this expansion comes up to a maximum of RM1.3mil in rental from the mall and RM4mil from the office building, depending on the tenancy arrangements. These figures are derived from possible rental rates ranging from RM6 to RM10 per square foot.

Oakwood International Ltd has been selected to operate the service apartments.

Financing for this expansion will either be based on a 60:40 or 70:30 ratio, with the larger percentage of funding to be made up of debt and the remaining, equity or internally-generate funds.

at this time the area is closed off but it seems that it is being used as project site office for the suria expansion...I am referring to the plot infront of Mandarin, also another small area beside the hotel valet carpark is closed off as another site office

19-07-2007: KLCC Property to focus on existing locations
by Harpreet Bhal
Email us your feedback at fd@bizedge.com

KLCC Property Holdings Bhd will concentrate on extracting value from its existing properties in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) vicinity, as well as on developing new parcels of land around the area in a bid to sustain growth for the company.

The property developer intends to capitalise on the high demand for office space in Kuala Lumpur by increasing rentals. The company boasts a portfolio of premium developments, including the Petronas Twin Towers, Menara Maxis, Menara ExxonMobil, Dayabumi, Suria KLCC and Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

"The buoyant economic growth is also supporting demand for office space. Going ahead we see rates firming up if the economy continues to be buoyant," the company's chief executive officer Datuk Nasarudin Md Idris told reporters after the AGM here yesterday.

The Petronas Twin Towers, a prime address and national landmark, commands some of the highest rental rates in the city. The two towers are on a triple-net lease to Petronas and rentals are reviewed every three years. The last increase took place last year.

"We have room to also improve on our hotel business by increasing occupancy as well as average room rates," said Nasarudin, adding that room rates at the Mandarin Oriental averaged RM512.70 last year, with an occupancy rate of 79 %.

He said the company had no plans to sell any of its prime location properties or expand into other areas outside the KLCC vicinity, as there was still much to be done to develop the current site.

The company is currently developing a parcel of land known as Lot C into a 59-storey office block to complement the adjacent Petronas Twin Towers.

Nasarudin said structural work was currently being carried out on-site but declined to disclose the value or cost of the project. However, he said the company was approaching Petronas to be the anchor tenant. The project is expected to be completed by 2010.

"Besides that, we also have another parcel of land called Lot D. That's something we need to think about in terms of what kind of development we want to have there," he added. The company is also considering acquisitions but there are no immediate plans.

For the financial year ended March 31, 2007, KLCC Property Holdings posted a net profit of RM2 billion against RM117.34 million previously, due to the fair value adjustment of investment property following the adoption of Financial Reporting Standards (FRS) 140. Revenue for the period grew to RM780.75 million compared to RM748.25 million posted in 2006.

Em, as this is the last strategic area, they should do something unique, say, a skyscraper and clad it with LED screen, to make it stand out among KLCC buildings....
