Your Guide to Living in KL City Centre
KL City Centre (KLCC) is the heart of the action in downtown Kuala Lumpur. This exclusive 100-acre area sits in the prestigious shadow of the stunning Petronas Twin Towers, and is home to a range of upmarket hotels, stunning malls and primarily luxury residential properties.
KLCC is a bright and vibrant location, but what is it like as a place to live? PropertyGuru presents you an easy-access guide to the facilities, amenities, and excitement of living in Kuala Lumpur’s thriving centre.
Shopping and Entertainment in KLCC
If you’re looking for exceptional shopping or first-rate entertainment, then KLCC is a great place to start. Suria KLCC is perhaps the jewel in the crown, offering over 1.17 million square feet of world-class shopping, dining and entertainment at the base of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. The area also boasts a 50-acre park with a playground, wading pool and fountain, as well as the nearby Petronas Art Gallery and Aquaria KLCC Oceanarium.
Avenue K Mall offers another exciting destination for your shopping needs. While smaller than Suria KLCC, it’s working to position itself as a trendier urban hangout, with exciting entertainment spaces like the SuperPark skate park and Breakout escape rooms sitting alongside a great range of food and retail outlets.
Healthcare in KLCC
Despite its noted luxury credentials, KLCC also boasts convenient amenities for everyday essentials, such as healthcare. Suria KLCC is home to the Twin Towers Medical Centre, which is joined by a range of other primary healthcare facilities and medical centres located in and around KLCC.
The nearby Prince Court Medical Centre offers a 270-bed private healthcare facility for more complex medical requirements which may require hospital care, as well as other outpatient needs. Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur provides further accessibility to a 372-bed tertiary and acute care hospital just a short drive along Jalan Ampang.
Hospital Kuala Lumpur offers public hospital cover for the KLCC area, and is located a short and accessible drive north of Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
