Description: Mixed development consisting of entertainment block and 6 towers ranging in height from 30 to 50 storeys, on a 9 storey podium and a 4 storey basement over a GFA of approximately 7 million ft²
This is a multi-billion ringgit project for the re-development of the historic Pudu Prison in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The mixed development includes a 46-storey strata office tower, hotel, apartment towers, Zepp Hall by Sony, office towers, all linked to a common 4-level basement and 5-storey podium. To accelerate the construction program, the strata office adopted up-down construction i.e. 15 levels above ground floors were erected on steel plunge columns while the top-down excavation of the basement was being carried out.
A one million sq. ft. retail mall will provide all the needs of modern shopping with specialised and eclectic brands complementing exciting al-fresco eateries.
A mix of local and international retailers will elevate this shopping experience to a new level. The lifestyle street concourse will encapsulate shopping, eateries, and entertainment for social gatherings that both residents and guests can enjoy. In the podium block, an entertainment hub features a world-class Zepp music hall, a cineplex, and a Malaysia Grand Bazaar that showcases local heritage crafts and fresh contemporary works. Adjacent blocks include a hotel, strata offices, and serviced apartments, while BBCC’s Signature Tower will be an 80-storey icon that makes it mark on KL’s city skyline. Green lungs are threaded into BBCC’s design to ensure biodiversity and environmental sustainability, and a central transit hub connecting the existing Hang Tuah monorail, the LRT as well as linkage to the upcoming Merdeka MRT station will link BBCC to all parts of Kuala Lumpur and beyond.
