Master Planning

The Kuala Lumpur City Center is one of the most unique properties in Southeast Asia. With the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, the KLCC is an instantly recognizable landmark and an important national symbol. Following completion of the original master plan in the mid-1990’s, RNL were commissioned in 2010 to provide guidance to enhance the development potential of the remaining undeveloped parcels on the site. The aim of the master plan revision was to help redistribute the approved development density into the remaining site areas in order to leverage the value of the significant development investment on the site to date. In addition, sustainability was elevated to a higher level within the master plan, with standards created for building performance. Departures from the initial master plan included the development of a convention center at the perimeter of the site which created a barrier to connectivity to the city. Site access improvements were created through enhanced site gateways, internal access and circulation, and improvements to the quality of the pedestrian experience within the public realm.
