Demand for Grade A office space

By THEAN LEE CHENG

KLCC Property Holdings Bhd will be extending its retail space and having an additional tower office block of about 60-storey in line with the demand for office space around the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) area.

Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Andrew Brien says the Tower A of the Petronas Twin Tower is 100% full, while Tower B is over 90% full.

“Menara Maxis is 90% occupied. This shows there is a demand for Grade A office space around the precinct,” says Brien.

Piling has already started in what is currently known as Lot C, located between the Twin Towers and the Mandarin Oriental hotel. Brien says the new office tower block will add to further vitality and vibrancy to the area. The project will be completed in 2010.

Customers have become more time-challenged and indulgent, says Brien
“There are more than a dozen condominiums coming up around the area and this will provide a great balance between residential, retail and office space in the city centre,” says Brien.

His observation is not lost on developers. Glomac Bhd will be working on the RM550mil Glomac Tower. Work is scheduled to start early next year. The company will be keeping the 40-storey office block, to be located on a 1.3-acre freehold site at Jalan P Ramlee and Jalan Pinang, for rental income.

This will be the group’s first office building and second high-end development in the high-traffic city centre. The first is condominium Suria Stonor.

Glomac Tower will have a net floor area of more than 500,000 sq ft, four levels of elevated car park and four levels of basement car park. Net area per floor is above 17,000 sq ft. There will be two retail floors, 30 office floors and three sky restaurant floors, including a unique open-air rooftop restaurant.

The land was bought for RM1,000 per sq ft earlier in the year at what was then considered as a new record price.

Six levels of retail space, of about 140,000 sq ft, will support the additional block. This is about the equivalent of three floors of anchor tenant Isetan of Japan currently located at Suria KLCC. The new retail component will be a seamless integration to Suria KLCC at the Ramlee Mall end.

“It will be an extension in terms of brands, design and architecture. It’s too early to say who will be where as we have not sat down with our retailers yet. But it will open, fully leased,” he says, adding that the extra parking space will be linked to the current existing parking structure.

“The new block will be part and parcel of our growth. It will work beautifully hand-in-hand with our various current components. Each of these component works closely with one another. When a team of gynaecologists came for their meeting at the convention centre, we – the convention centre group and retail team - will sit together to see how we can offer a total package. We are able to make their stay very convenient because all the facilities are within five minutes of each other, be it shopping, leisure, dining, meetings,” says the Australian who was in retail property industry before joining Suria KLCC about five years ago.

Brien says customers have become more time-challenged and indulgent. Which is where branding comes in and KLCC has brought in 130 brands the last three years and over 300 specialists stores.

As the destination enters its 10th year, Suria KLCC has an increased of turnover from RM1.32bil three years ago to RM1.96bil to date.

“We want our retailers to have global exposure and there are trips abroad. Which is why we are always able to offer something new. We are at the forefront of introducing brands, Jimmy Choo shoes and bags and Italian manufacturer of men's luxury clothing and accessories Brioni.

“We do a lot of research as to what our customer wants,” says Brien, adding that Suria KLCC has a total of 45 million visitors last year, compared with 42 million a year ago. On a weekend, it has 150,000 visitors and a weekday, 100,000 with a local-foreign customer ratio of 80:20.

The average local spends about RM200, half of the international visitor. But 20% of its international shoppers account for 30% of their sales. Which means that 70% sales are from locals, which make up 80% of our visitors, he says.

“This means it is the local customers who are supporting our retailers' sales numbers, with contribution from the foreign shoppers,” he analyses.

In the light of this fact and the proliferation of malls around the city, Brien says it is all the more Suria KLCC needs to work harder to bring conveniences to its shoppers. It recently upgraded its concierge services and added a digital directory to make it more convenient for visitors.

The 1.5 million square foot Charigali Headquarters Tower (Lot C) will anchor the southwest corner of the gateway development at Kuala Lumpur City Centre and define the northern edge of the landscaped plaza in front of the Mandarin Hotel. Similar to the Petronas Twin Towers, the architectural form is generated by two interlocking volumes: a square and a triangle, rising out of the base podium. In contrast to the Petronas Towers, the top of the proposed tower is distinguished by a simple elegant crowing halo, which will be lit at night.
