From Ecopoint: Kuala Lumpur’s Future Sustainable Iconic Tower
Sitting within a short distance of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the future Datum Jelatek development is set to become the most iconic tower in Malaysia.
The new retail and residential development, consisting of four towers connected by a Sky Bridge, has won the Most Iconic Design of the Year at the 2012 Malaysian Reserve Editor’s Choice Awards. Not only is it set for iconic acclaim, but it will also host a range of sustainable features.
Located in Jalan Ampang, Datum Jelatek was designed by Architects Surbana International Consultants and Interior Designers ACID and is expected to cost over $310,000,000. Consisting of four residential towers, four retail towers and one level of office suites, some anticipate that it will become a ‘contemporary retail heaven’ and will be regarded as a ‘benchmark for designer malls in the region.’
The concept to embody ‘Infinite Living – The Point of Life,’ tying in with the prediction that it will be awarded a Green Building Index (GBI) Platinum certification.
Covering 5.8 acres of land, the development will focus on a dedication to healthy living as each of the four towers play host to different themes, including family, educational, wellness and active areas to help people relax and reconnect with themselves.
The facilities available across the towers range from the Sky Gym to an Interactive Media Lounge. Residents can forget about the long day behind them by also taking up yoga or visiting the meditation pavilion.
