MRCB: KL Sentral to be completed by 2015
By Kamarul Yunus Published: 2008/04/30, BusinessTimes



MALAYSIAN Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), a construction and property company, expects to complete the whole development of its RM8.4 billion comprehensive and integrated Kuala Lumpur Sentral development project (KL Sentral) by 2015.

Its retail asset development general manager Zulkifli Ibrahim said the company has completed more than RM2 billion worth of development, and another RM5 billion new development is under construction and progressing rapidly.

"This new development includes the construction of high-rise office buildings, a shopping mall, a five-star hotel, condominiums, luxury service apartments, and a media and education centre," he told reporters during a media tour around KL Sentral's latest edition called Sooka Sentral - a lifestyle, health and dining centre - in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Zulkifli said construction work on the new shopping mall is expected to begin by the middle of the year, with targeted completion by 2011, while the office buildings, condominiums and luxury service apartments, located opposite the National Museum, are scheduled to start by the end of the year.

KL Sentral is being developed as a futuristic self-contained city, providing the perfect living, work and play environment. Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, it is also dedicated to be the transport hub of the city.

The Sooka Sentral, meanwhile, is located directly opposite the southern entrance of the KL Sentral station. The six-storey building is managed by Sooka Sentral Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MRCB.

"It is the only and ultimate centre for relaxation within KL Sentral development that focuses on luxurious health, beauty, wellness and dining outlets," Zulkifli said, adding that Sooka Sentral has reached a 100 per cent occupancy rate.

He said the gross development value of Sooka Sentral is about RM60 million, offering some 9,290 sq m of space. It houses a fitness centre, a spa, beauty and health centre, a food court, fine dining restaurants and alfresco dining outlets.

Among its tenants include Centro, Kiliney Kopitiam, Zen, Chili Espresso, myNEWS.com, Oriental Spoom, Sushi King, Kelantan Delights, Kabul restaurant, World of Perfume, Cuttery, Beaubelle, Equal Fitness Sports Massage, Tanamera Tropical Spa, Chiill Reflexology, The Spa, and SynarGym.

Lifestyle centres for KL Sentral
Wednesday April 30, 2008, TheStar

KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur Sentral, the integrated commercial-cum-residential development in Brickfields, will have two retail-cum-lifestyle centres offering close to one million sq ft of net lettable space.

The first, the 100,000-sq-ft Sooka Sentral Lifestyle Centre that opened last December, is now fully occupied.

Sooka Sentral Sdn Bhd general manager Zulkefli Ibrahim said the RM50mil lifestyle centre would provide wellness, health, beauty and dining facilities for residents and office workers in Kuala Lumpur Sentral and the surrounding area.

With rental rates of RM8 to RM20 per sq ft, Sooka was expected to generate an annual rental income of RM8.4mil, he said at a media tour of the new facility yesterday.

The second project will comprise a 750,000-sq-ft shopping centre to be built at a cost of RM420mil on Lot G. Construction will kick off by mid-year for completion in 2011.

Zulkefli said the new shopping centre was expected to generate annual rental income of RM60mil.

The 72-acre Kuala Lumpur Sentral development started in 1997 and is scheduled to be completed in 2015.

Starwood signs St. Regis Hotel in Kuala Lumpur
12 June 2008

Starwood Hotels & Resorts is to introduce its luxury St. Regis brand to Malaysia with the signing of The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur. Owned by ONE IFC Sdn Bhd, the newly constructed property will include 200 guest rooms and 200 whole-ownership St. Regis branded Residences, as well as a luxury Remède spa, gourmet dining and spacious meeting facilities.

The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur is scheduled to open in 2014, and will offer a prime location in KL Sentral, directly opposite the National Museum and Lake Gardens. Spanning 72 acres, KL Sentral is one of the largest commercial developments in Kuala Lumpur today and is regarded by many as the city’s new Central Business District. Guests will appreciate the hotel’s close proximity to the KL Sentral railway hub and major commercial areas including KLCC and Bukit Bintang.

The capital and largest city in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is one of the best examples of an Asian city that has managed to preserve the best of its cultural heritage while emerging as one of Asia’s fastest growing centers for trade, commerce, finance, and information technology.

“The sustained demand for luxury accommodations, the legendary bespoke service of the St. Regis brand, and the unrivaled location of this hotel in the KL Sentral area will make St. Regis Kuala Lumpur an extremely attractive choice for travelers to this dynamic capital city,” said Mr. Miguel Ko, President for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Asia Pacific.

The New York-based architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) has been appointed as the main architect for the ONE IFC development. Founded in 1936, SOM is one of the world's leading architecture, urban design, engineering, and interior architecture firms with a portfolio that features some of the most important architectural accomplishments of the 20th century

St Regis To Make Local Debut With Luxury Hotel
June 12

KUALA LUMPUR, June 12 (Bernama) -- St Regis, known as the world's luxury hotel chain, will make its debut in Malaysia by 2014.

To be named St Regis Kuala Lumpur, the six-star hotel will have at least 200 guest rooms and 200 branded residences as well as a spa, gourmet dining and meeting facilities.

Starwood Hotels & Resort Worldwide Inc, which will operate the hotel, today signed a management agreement with ONE IFC Sdn Bhds wholly-owned subsidiaries, ONE IFC Hotel Sdn Bhd and ONE IFC Residences Sdn Bhd.

ONE IFC is a 60 percent owned by CMY Capital Sdn Bhd, with another 30 percent held by Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd and 10 percent by Jitra Perkasa Sdn Bhd.

"The agreement signed Thursday is a proof that Kuala Lumpur is ready to welcome a brand whose reputation for luxury is incomparable," ONE IFC's chief executive officer Carmen Chua said at the signing ceremony.

She said St Regis Kuala Lumpur and The Residence at the St Regis Kuala Lumpur will be housed in a single mixed-use development called ONE IFC but did not disclose the total investment.

"The company's commitment to the ONE IFC project despite current economic uncertainty, the subprime meltdown, inflation and rising construction costs demonstrates its confidence in the Malaysian economy and the country," Chua said.

ONE IFC will be the landmark defining KL Sentral just as the Petronas Twin Towers defines Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), according to her.

It will be situated on Lot C of KL Sentral which is directly opposite the National Museum and Lake Gardens.

New York-based Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP has been appointed as architect for the ONE IFC project.

More on St. Regis in KL Sentral's Lot C.

CMY Capital and MRCB in St Regis deal
The Star, Friday June 13, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR: ONE IFC Sdn Bhd has signed an agreement that will see the world-renowned St Regis brand make its entry into Malaysia. The six-star St Regis hotel, which is scheduled to open its doors in 2014, will be built on Lot C at KL Sentral. The St Regis Kuala Lumpur will feature a minimum 200 hotel rooms and 200 whole ownership units or residences.

“Our vision and aspirations are to create a development that would redefine luxury, and one that would raise the benchmarks of Malaysian real estate to that of international standards,” ONE IFC chief executive officer Carmen Chua told reporters at the signing with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc yesterday.

Starwood is a world leading hotel and leisure company with about 900 properties in 100 countries. Apart from the St Regis brand, Starwood manages other brands such as Le Meridien, Westin, Sheraton and The Luxury Collection. The St Regis brand is over 100 years old and the St Regis Kuala Lumpur will feature the hallmark of the St Regis hotel – butler service and luxury accommodation.

Mustafa Kemal Abadan, design partner of the world-famous architecture firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM), will design the hotel, residence and office tower. SOM’s portfolio of over 800 design awards includes the Freedom Tower, which is the redevelopment of the World Trade Centre in New York, and the Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest tower, in the United Arab Emirates.

“The sustained demand for luxury accommodation, the renowned Malaysian hospitality, combined with the legendary bespoke service of the St Regis brand, and the unrivalled location of this hotel in the exclusive urban centre of KL Sentral, will make this property an extremely attractive choice for travellers to Kuala Lumpur,” said Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Asia Pacific president Miguel Ko.

ONE IFC is 60% owned by CMY Capital Sdn Bhd, 30% by Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd and 10% by Jitra Perkasa Sdn Bhd. Construction of the ONE IFC hotel, residence and office tower development is expected to be financed by the shareholders funds and begin in 2010.

Chua also said the ONE IFC’s commitment to the project represented its confidence in the Malaysia economy despite the current climate of uncertainty, inflation and rising costs. She said the final costing and the subsequent gross development value of the project would only be determined after the building was designed.

St. Regis luxury hotel coming up at KL Sentral
By Roziana Hamsawi Published: 2008/06/13, BusinessTimes

THE six-star St. Regis hotel chain is coming to Malaysia, and owner One IFC Sdn Bhd believes Kuala Lumpur is ready for the luxury brand.

The 200-room St. Regis Kuala Lumpur and 200 freehold residences are slated to open in 2014. The development will be sited at KL Sentral.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc was appointed as the management operator at a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

One IFC chief executive officer Carmen Chua said the company is committed to the project even though construction costs are rising.

"We are monitoring the situation very closely due to the scale of this project, but we are committed as we have confidence in Malaysia's economy and the country," Chua told a press conference yesterday.

CMY Capital Sdn Bhd holds 60 per cent of One IFC, while Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB) - KL Sentral's developer - owns 30 per cent. The rest is held by Jitra Perkasa Sdn Bhd.

Construction is scheduled to start in 2010. One of the world's top three architectural firms - Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) - will be the hotel's main architect.

SOM designed the Freedom Tower in New York in the US and the world's tallest tower, the Burj Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

The hotel's development cost has yet to be determined as it is pending the design approval.

Chua said the design is likely to be unveiled late next year or early 2010.

The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur will be built on 0.88ha.

According to Chua, 1.4 million sq ft of development has been approved.

It will feature the famed hallmarks of St. Regis hotels, including luxury accommodation and the iconic butler service.

"When it is open for business, 95 per cent of the staff will be locals, and we plan to recruit local graduates and train them," Chua said.

Any renderings revealed for the CIMB Tower? From the main masterplan layout and the picture above, CIMB Tower should be in Lot A, I found that both designs are not good. The one in the masterplan is too typical, while the bluish 2 rectangulars model above is not inspiring at all. I am hoping for a good design for this 60 storey masterpiece of KL Sentral.
