The Icon Jalan Tun Razak, KL – Unforgetable Landmark
The Icon Jalan Tun Razak is a 21-storey Grade A office development conceptualized by world renowned architects. As its name suggests, it is located along Jalan Tun Razak, just south off Jalan Ampang in the vicinity of Kuala Lumpur City Centre. It is within the neighborhood of Embassy Row and is in the heart of the shopping and business district of Kuala Lumpur.
Few other office developments can boast amazing views of both the KLCC Twin Towers and the Royal Selangor Golf Club nearby. Surrounded by established amenities including private specialist hospitals, parks, and established schools and colleges, it truly is a first class building in a first class location.
Comprising of two wings, East and West, it has 15 levels of office spaces of approximately 15,000 sq ft per level per wing. There is a common area in Level 5 where the cafeteria, gymnasium and a business centre are situated. A café and restaurant area and a Banking Hall are also available on the ground and mezzanine level.
There are 4 levels of basement car parks and 3 levels of elevated car parks making up a total of 605 car parking bays on a gross floor area of 534,858 sq.ft. As a Grade A development, the Icon Jalan Tun Razak enjoys 24/7 three-tier security system.
It has Variable Refrigerant Flow air conditioning system which provides flexible control to different zones. On top of that, the building is designed as disabled-friendly.
Not surprisingly, the Mah Sing Group project has been fully sold out and there will be no more future launches. More tellingly, the completed building has recently won the highly commended ‘Best Office Development Malaysia’ organized by Asia Pacific Commercial Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television.
Mah Sing’s first office building
As the Icon is their first completed commercial Grade A building, it was greatly encouraged by the award. Says Mah Sing’s chief operating officer, Andy Chua: “This is a very encouraging recognition for Mah Sing’s venture into commercial development. Being awarded at the regional level and to represent Malaysia reaffirms the company’s status as a premier lifestyle developer.”
“We believe that a company’s culture, success and values are reflected in the image conveyed to potential clients, and our award-winning ICON will create a distinctive identity and prestigious image for the building’s tenants.”
The building architecture is one that few will forget as the wave-shaped and sail-like features etch an indelible mark on one’s memory. In other words, its dramatic design stands out in the crowded office environment within the KLCC precinct. According to the COO, the wave shape metaphorically represents waves of business opportunities that would flow into the companies residing in the building.
Further, Chua believes that the Icon Jalan Tun Razak is the first and currently the only office building in Malaysia to be accorded the stringent CONQUAS award. CONQUAS is widely recognized and accepted internationally as a benchmarking tool for quality. Countries like the UK and Hong Kong have successfully adapted CONQUAS to their construction industries. CONQUAS is also used in Singapore, China, Australia, South Africa and India.
Since its inception in 1965, Mah Sing Group Berhad has achieved recognition as an innovative developer of niche products and trend-setting townships. Set in prime locations, their developments in the Klang Valley and Johor Bahru have cemented their position as Malaysia’s premier lifestyle developer. Their projects are showcases of contemporary lifestyle statements. Grand entrances, lush landscaping, and practical yet functional homes with quality finishes within a guarded and gated environment are all hallmarks of Mah Sing’s developments.
