Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia continues to amaze and inspire. The KLCC area, in particular, continues to develop, with both commercial and residential buildings springing up in the vicinity. Property here is highly sought after due to its prime location right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. However, with so many choices available, it can get rather daunting when choosing the perfect property to live or invest in. Here, we weigh in on four properties in the KLCC area that have caught our attention.
YOO8 serviced by Kempinski at 8 Conlay
With its completion scheduled for 2021, YOO8 serviced by Kempinski will be Kuala Lumpur’s latest branded serviced residence. This one-of-a-kind branded serviced residence is part of 8 Conlay, a freehold three-tower development featuring a five-star Kempinski Hotel, a four-story lifestyle retail quarters and two towers devoted exclusively to YOO8. Although 8 Conlay is KSK Land’s first-ever project, it is a masterpiece that has already made its mark in the KLCC property market with its amazing architecture.
There are a total of 1062 units spread across the two towers. Units here have 1- to 3-bedroom configurations, with a build-up size ranging between 700 square feet to 1,308 square feet.
YOO8’s location on Jalan Conlay is a strategic one. It is easily accessible via main roads such as Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Raja Chulan. The Raja Chulan Monorail Station is within walking distance and a little further away is the KLCC LRT Station and the Ampang Park LRT Station.
YOO8 is also within walking distance to the Bukit Bintang Shopping District where Pavilion Shopping Mall, Starhill Gallery, and Lot 10, among others, are situated. In addition to this, one can head over to Jalan Alor for some amazing street food that will not fail to tantalize taste buds.
The best part of YOO8 is that it is serviced by Kempinski, the most well-established of hoteliers in Europe. Known for their old school hospitality, Kempinski offers every service imaginable. Residents will not need to worry about any housekeeping or laundry. A la carte services include and is not limited to private chef services, personal fitness trainer, car rental and car care services, an on-call tailor, daycare services and residence provisioning.
In addition to this, as the tallest twisted twin residential towers in the world, residents of YOO8 will be able to enjoy undiluted views of the Petronas Twin Towers.
YOO8’s interior design is by YOO, with Steve Leung leading the way for Tower A and Kelly Hoppen for Tower B. Units at Tower A have a modern stance combined with soft touches of Asian accentuations across two concepts, Water and Wood, while Tower B units attempt to exude understated glamour with its Urban and Spring concepts.
Perhaps the only downside of purchasing a unit at YOO8 is that units here are already fully furnished and there is little chance for one to be able to design the interior of their units.
Highly sought after, YOO8 is now the benchmark for urban luxury in KLCC.
Developed by the Pavilion Group, Pavilion Suites is a project that speaks of prestige, luxury and distinction. There are a total of 383 units in a single 51-storey skyscraper.
Investors have a choice of one-bedroom or two-bedroom units, with build-up sizes ranging from 718 square feet up to 1,254 square feet. Completed in 2018, the launching price of Pavilion Suites was a record-breaking RM3,000.00 per square feet.
Pavilion Suites is located on Jalan Bukit Bintang, right in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur. It is on prime land with a freehold tenure. Being right in the centre of the Golden Triangle means that Pavilion Suites enjoys good connectivity via main roads such as Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Tun Razak, and Jalan Sultan Ismail.
If one is afraid to brave through the traffic during peak hours, the Raja Chulan and Bukit Bintang Monorail Stations are within walking distance. The KL Sentral Station, where one can take the KLIA Express to the airport, is just two stations away.
Residents of Pavilion Suites will be able to enjoy Couture Concierge Services. This includes access to a private yacht, jet and limousine. Residents here will also be able to enjoy the benefits of the Pavilion Diamond Card which includes privileges at couture brands as well as access to the private Pavilion Diamond Lounge.
The Pavilion Suites is not only connected to Pavilion Shopping Mall, but also the Petronas Twin Towers with KLCC’s pedestrian bridge.
Besides the hustle and bustle of Jalan Bukit Bintang on which Pavilion Suites is located, the only other downside of this property is that the building exterior is nothing spectacular in terms of architecture and design.
With the prestigious luxury and bespoke services, being a resident of Pavilion Suites is akin to setting the new benchmark of couture living in KLCC.
Located on Persiaran KLCC, The Troika is a luxury condominium that was completed in 2010. Consisting of three glass-clad towers, The Troika was developed by Bandar Raya Developments Berhad and designed by Foster and Partners, a British firm.

One of the outstanding features of 8 Kia Peng is its international standard Skylounge on level 46 and level 47. With its amazing view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline, it is the perfect place to host a private function.
