Guocoland’s Tower Real Estate Investment Trust (Tower REIT), the owner of Menara HLX in Jalan Kia Peng, Kuala Lumpur, is offering customisable office layouts to prospective tenants, through its collaboration with EzyOffice. Located within the heart of the financial district, the tower was formerly known as Menara HLA.
Themed “Office Made Ezy”, this office provides future tenants a one-stop, build-to-fit workspace within Menara HLX, which offers several templates and variations for workspace units that range from 2,000 sq ft to 13,000 sq ft.
All a prospective tenant needs to do is select a template on the EzyOffice platform, after which it will provide a quick estimate of costs. Packages can include office furniture, partitions, wall, floor and ceiling coverings, as well as electrical and air conditioning works.
“The idea is that new tenants will be able to save time, reduce complexity and quickly turn around the space so they can start operating quicker, and place focus on their business and not the tedious aspects of construction and interior design,” said Noorbaizura Hermeyney, CEO of Tower REIT.
In its drive to raise standards in the interior design and fit-out business in Malaysia, EzyOffice has come up with templates to accommodate different working styles – hybrid (facilitate staff working from both home and office), compact (ideal for call centres), and essential (conventional office style – with director room, meeting room – functional office).
These working styles have been identified as the most appealing by business owners, taking into consideration the changes brought about by the pandemic, according to the firm.
“We are thrilled at this opportunity to work with Menara HLX as it allows us to showcase our expertise in commercial interior design and renovation service,” said Teo Khai Lee, founder and managing director for EzyOffice.
“Normally, other building owners may have a panel of interior design firms which are shared with tenants, but this process can be very time-consuming. By viewing the template customised for specific layouts and floor space, business owners can make decisions faster,” said Noorbaizura, who added that Tower REIT is considering applying the same concept to its Plaza Zurich in the future.
According to Teo, the collaboration with Tower REIT allows EzyOffice the freedom to demonstrate a future-proof workspace concept that incorporates cutting-edge technology, ergonomic designs and innovative solutions.
Menara HLX also has a showroom that allows prospective tenants to experience the four custom-designed templates, with each template applicable across three different layouts over four different floor plans.
EzyOffice has worked with brands including multinationals and companies such as Dormakarba, Classic Chair, Kian furniture, Dellform etc.
