Kuala Lumpur virtual office & office space

Why would i need a Kuala Lumpur virtual office?

Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia, is the center of the federal government of Malaysia as well as the location of the largest commercial district in the country. As the largest city in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and its surrounding areas constitute the largest populated area in the country.

The main commercial areas of Kuala Lumpur are located at the city center, with the central business district also known as the Golden Triangle. This busy area roughly within the boundaries of Jalan Sultan Ismail (Sultan Ismail Street), Jalan Bukit Bintang (Bukit Bintang Street) and Jalan Ampang (Ampang Street), is where the concentration of commercial office buildings, 5-star hotels as well as major shopping areas are located.

Perhaps the most well-known office tower within the city center is the Petronas Twin Towers, located along Jalan Ampang and currently the second tallest building in the world. This pride and symbol of the Kuala Lumpur city center forms the skyline of the city together with the Menara Kuala Lumpur, the tallest telecommunications tower in the city. With its 88 floors and height of 453 m (1483 feet) designed with unique Islamic motive architecture, this towering skyscraper serves as prestigious office space for many multinational and large local corporations within. Built by Petronas, Malaysia’s largest oil company, Tower One of the towers is predominantly occupied by Petronas as their central office administration center.

On the other hand, Tower Two is leased to various multinational corporations such as Bloomberg, McKinsey, Accenture, IBM, Avanade, Boeing and Exact Software. As this building has been classified as an area within the Multimedia Super Corridor, facilities within the building is technologically advanced, with internet network access speeds of up to 2Mbps through ADSL technology. Apart from that, security levels within the building have been upgraded since the September 11th event of the World Trade Center. This is in addition to a sky bridge erected connecting the two towers at the 41st and 42nd floors of the building, which serves as an emergency exit in the event of a fire in one of the towers.

The total floor space within the twin towers is at 395 000 m2 ample space for a long list of tenants, with an estimated number of 10000 office workers working within these towers each day. Thus, any business having an office within the renowned Petronas Twin Towers would gain the prestige of being located at one of the tallest buildings in the world. Indeed, the Petronas Twin Towers is an international standard building demanding one of the highest rental rates within the city, in line with the prestige and recognition any company would receive from having an office address here. A virtual office within this building would serve to provide an identity synonymous with the offices of other multinationals located here, especially for companies from the technology, financial and oil and gas sectors.

Apart from that, at the foot of the towers is the Suria KLCC 5-level shopping mall, one of the most prominent shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur. This is where specialty shops frequented by the rich and famous in Kuala Lumpur such as Emporio Armani, Guess, Liz Claiborne, Bally, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci and Hermes. Suria KLCC has been highly successful in attracting tourists due to its proximity to the Petronas Twin Towers. With this, any company within the fashion industry should look into setting up their virtual office within Suria KLCC.

Other prominent commercial buildings within Kuala Lumpur include the Menara Citibank located at Jalan Ampang down the road from the Petronas Twin Towers. This 50 floor tower offers 745,098 sq ft of floor space and has Citibank as its proud major tenant. Additionally, this building synonymous with its beautiful blue glass windows, acts as the base to the offices of international companies such as Sun Microsystems, Motorola and Oracle.

Another skyscraper located within the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur include the Empire Tower also located at the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan Tun Razak, which was erected in 1994. This building standing tall at 781 ft., is the offices of several embassies including the Norwegian and Hungarian Embassies. Another office area worth mentioning is the AmFinance Building along Jalan Yap Kwan Seng opposite the Petronas Twin Towers. This unique building contains architecture motives of various decades, with a base, shaft and top typical of a 60s building, concrete fins of the 70s and 80s and topped with a crown typical of a 90s building design. This 50 storey building consists of offices AmBank group as well as various other offices in the trading and financial industries.

Prior to the development of the Petronas Twin Towers, the business center of Kuala Lumpur was located along the roads of Jalan Sultan Ismail. This area still stands as the main commercial hub of Kuala Lumpur, although the grandeur of the Petronas Twin Towers has somewhat turned the focus away from commercial buildings here. Among the prominent commercial buildings located in this area include Wisma Genting building, Wisma Cosway building, U.B.N. Tower (located on Jalan P. Ramlee, a side-road off Jalan Sultan Ismail) as well as the newer Menara S.E.A. Insurance building located on the south-eastern stretch of this road. Opposite the Menara S.E.A. Insurance building is the relatively new Maju Junction Tower, located at the corner of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, composing of tenants comprising of government agencies such as the National Registration Department as well as the property owner, Maju Junction Holdings. The uniqueness of this tower is probably the 5 storey Maju Junction Mall which is located at the lower levels of this building.

The other north-western end of Jalan Sultan Ismail which intersects with Jalan Bukit Bintang, is a prominent shopping area which is also where the famous Bintang Walk is located. Here, tourists will delight in visiting the StarHill Shopping Center, Sungai Wang Plaza as well as Bukit Bintang Plaza, shopping malls with shops that offer quality goods at reasonable prices. Due to the recognition of this area as a shopping area, there are few commercial buildings here, other than Menara Keck Seng located on one end of Jalan Bukit Bintang.

Finally, having an office within Kuala Lumpur would provide you the cost effectiveness that you seek for in virtual offices within this region. Combine this with recognition and prestige and you have one of the best options laid out in front of you.
