In the present day, awareness of environmental issues has led to a growing movement of smart, green cities all around the world. One of S P Setia’s latest development, KL Eco City (KLEC) at Jalan Bangsar is a vision of an advanced, integrated mixed-use development in Malaysia. The RM7 billion project has been planned to fulfil three criterias: Connectivity, Integration, and Sustainability. With living, business, entertainment, and culture contained within a 25-acre site, residents and commercial citizens of KLEC can live and entertain guests in a sustainable way by bringing everything together in one location.
As a transit-oriented development, KLEC offers tenants and residents unparalleled connectivity. It is easily accessible by public or private transport via rail and road. The integrated rail hub connects the existing Abdullah Hukum LRT station (on the Kelana Jaya LRT line) to a brand new KTM Komuter station. This development is also integrated with multiple entry and exit points via major highways such as Federal Highway, New Pantai Expressway, Jalan Bangsar and Jalan Maarof. The unique two-tier internal road system also ensures efficient traffic circulation. A pedestrian link bridge to The Gardens Mall further extends connectivity options for tenants within the vicinity.
KLEC is located in the middle of the Klang Valley—integrating it with the rest of Malaysia’s commercial heart. Its strategic location is nestled among the affluent residential enclaves of Bangsar, Pantai and Seputeh—as well as the established commercial hub of Mid Valley City and KL Sentral. KLEC is master planned by Los Angeles-based architecture and urban design firm, The Jerde Partnership—a renowned architect and master planner of integrated developments across the world. The master plan creates an opportunity for both social synergy and integration, coupled with the convenience and efficiency of shared transportation and amenities. Tenants for the KLEC retail podium includes food & beverage and grocery retailers such as Bangsar Market by Jaya Grocer, Starbucks, Old Town, Tamarind Food Hall and many more. Wellness and fitness tenants like RFC gym, camp 5 (coming soon), Guardian and Watsons pharmacy. For the corporate office towers,* major tenants include Samsung, Wework, Gibraltar BSN, J&T Express, Zurich and many more. The new trend in coworking has also seen Wework, Common Ground and Colony set up their spaces in KLEC.
Sustainability is at the heart of the KL Eco City project. The development optimises views and open spaces overlooking Bangsar and Mid Valley City—taking full advantage of natural light where possible. Combined with the green areas on street level, podium roof as well as on elevated decks within the tower blocks. With environmental responsibility and sustainability underpinning key aspects of its blueprint, the development has been designed to achieve green certification such as Gold Certification for LEED Core and Shell Category and Green Building Index (GBI). Environmental touches like natural ventilation and LED lighting are present in the development, while the vertical feature walls and fins help tie the various towers in KLEC into a cohesive whole.
