MRCB: KL Sentral to be completed by 2015

RELAXATION CENTRE: Sooka Sentral focuses on luxurious health, beauty, wellness and dining experience

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,, 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.
