4 OCTOBER, KUALA LUMPUR– KL Eco City (KLEC), Kuala Lumpur is now a Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Cybercentre. Mercu 2, a corporate office tower within KLEC has been awarded the Designated Premises for MSC Cybercentre by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) which means the entire KLEC is then demarcated as an MSC Malaysia Cybercentre.
The MSC Cybercentre status is awarded to city, townships, or large building complexes for providing dedicated and specialised industry areas for MSC- status companies or Information and Communications Technology (ICT)-facilitated businesses to locate their operations. “We are happy that KLEC is now recognised as an MSC Cybercentre. This status is an added boost for businesses and corporations who are looking for office spaces that are in-line with their business strategy of digitalisation,” said Tony Ling, Executive Vice President of S P Setia Berhad.
The MSC Malaysia Bill of Guarantees will entitle qualified entities a set of incentives, rights and privileges. It includes financial incentives, allowance in employing foreign knowledge workers in ICT/IT-related fields, freedom of ownership, freedom to source capital globally, ability to tender Malaysia ICT/IT infrastructure contracts and access to the MDEC’s One-Stop-Centre for ICT/IT-related solutions, amongst others.
Tony added, “This latest status and the additional benefits will offer our tenants more networking opportunities and business enhancements to further their organisation’s objectives and partnerships, giving them a competitive edge to compete globally.”
As one of the few transit-oriented integrated & mixed-used development in the country, the granted MSC status is expected to make KLEC a highly sought after address. Strategically located between Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur in Bangsar, KLEC was founded based on the pillars of integration, connectivity and sustainability. Directly connected to an LRT-KTM integrated rail hub and Mid Valley City, this city-within-a-city comprises prime commercial office towers, retail outlets, luxury residential towers and a chic business class hotel. Its estimated gross development value is RM7 billion.
Among the awards that KLEC has garnered include the FIABCI Malaysia Property Awards, World Gold Award at FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2020, BCA Green Mark Awards and Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards (MLAA).
