Syed Yusof gets nod to build Four Seasons
By Vasantha Ganesan
[email protected]

July 31 2006

DATUK Syed Yusof Syed Nasir is believed to have obtained the Kuala Lumpur City Hall's in-principle approval to build a two-tower Four Seasons Hotel in the city.



This is likely to create a scramble for one of the biggest construction jobs among Malaysian builders this year, as the cost is estimated to be more than RM1 billion.

"They are hopeful for the ground-breaking ceremony to take place by the end of the year and for the project to be completed three years thereafter," a source familiar with the project told Business Times.

However, he added that while the project has been approved, there has been a substantial change from the earlier submitted building plan.

"The two towers are in excess of 50 storeys but lower than the earlier submitted proposal," the source said.

It was earlier reported that the two-tower project would be 70-storey buildings where 42 storeys will offer a 200-room hotel, 50 serviced apartments and 173 condominium units.

With the approval, some changes in the composition, such as the number of rooms will also be made.

Land cost for the site, located next to the Mandarin Oriental and the Petronas Twin Towers, is estimated at around RM90 million.

The project will be undertaken by Venus Assets Sdn Bhd, in which Syed Yusof is chairman.

It has been reported that tycoon Ong Beng Seng, who controls Hotel Properties Ltd, has teamed up with the Sultan of Selangor and Syed Yusof to build the Four Seasons.

In an earlier interview with Business Times, Syed Yusof said that if Four Seasons were to come up, it would give a boost to Malaysia because the hotel chain is a rate leader.

This means that the hotel rate will be 30 per cent higher than the normal five-star hotels. This will also help other five-star hotels in the surrounding area to increase their charges as well

Huh? Construction looks well underway.

Why not make a thread in Construction Updates then?

Start a thread on this in the Construction Updates subforum because this is old news.

beautiful towers, it'll certainly bulk up the area surrounding the Petronas twins. I'm jealous of KL's beauty.. hahaha

Ok, at first i did not want to be near Petronas because of its height... but now it is growing on me... It has that effect, esp. if you know that the skyline will inevitably have it...
