Muar Pekan Rabu Complex along Sungai Muar.
MUAR: The tallest building here, which used to belong to and also housed the Pagoh Umno division office, will soon become a popular commercial and hotel complex.
The 11-storey building, built when former Johor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Othman Saat was the division’s chief, has been bought over by a company and has been renamed Muar Trade Centre.
The complex had been renovated and redesigned, turning the six upper floors into a hotel and the lower floors for commercial use, said Muar Trade Centre director K.C Lim.
He said the hotel, called the Muar Traders’ Hotel, provided 66 spacious standard rooms and deluxe rooms, besides 16 executive apartments.
He said the hotel, located between the District Office building and the Muar Pekan Rabu complex along Sungai Muar, offered a panoramic view of the waterway, including the estuary.
He said the hotel, managed by Actitage Sdn Bhd, was not aimed at competing with other hotels in the town but to provide visitors, especially those from outside the district, with more choices of accommodation, adding that it was also a preparation for Visit Malaysia Year 2007.
Lim said the five lower floors would not only house shops and restaurants, there would also be offices, adding that, the complex would be a new commercial landmark for the town.
He said there would be a banquet hall catering for up to 600 guests on the second floor and an exhibition centre on the third floor.
