KL Metropolis is a 75.5-acre mixed development that is envisioned to be the International Trade and Exhibition District for Kuala Lumpur. It aims to integrate trade, commerce, living, and transport, in one bustling hub. It has a gross development value (GDV) of RM20 billion.

KL Metropolis is strategically located on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim (also known as Jalan Duta), close to the townships of Damansara Heights, Sri Hartamas, Mont Kiara, and Bangsar.

Naza TTDI Sdn Bhd, the property arm of Naza Group, is spearheading the development of KL Metropolis. KL Metropolis is built on four key concepts:

  • Create a dedicated hub to enhance the country’s position as the preferred business tourism destination in the region
  • Create a conducive environment where local and foreign businesses connect to shape collaborations and partnerships
  • Build a world-class environment for working, living and businesses
  • Create a sustainable development through environmental efficiency and pedestrian transit connectivity

KL Metropolis will be a place to work, live and play, and also a new ecosystem to grow, connect, and thrive.

Naza TTDI said these components will transform the project into an integrated hub where retail, trade, residences and play co-exist as they are developed into state-of-the-art office towers, Grade A residential towers, a lifestyle mall, and world-class hotels.

The first component is the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), which opened in 2017. MITEC, Malaysia’s largest exhibition centre, plays host to numerous upscale international events and concerts. The 1.5 million sq ft built-up space is able to host a maximum of 48,000 visitors at any one time.

The 8 precincts in KL Metropolis are MET 1, MET 2, MET 3, MET 5, MET 6, MET 7, MET 8, and MET 9. Two of the precincts will be jointly developed with partners; Met 5 with Hap Seng Land Sdn Bhd, and Met 8 with Triterra Metropolis Sdn Bhd respectively.

Another joint venture within KL Metropolis is Arte Mont’Kiara with Nusmetro Property Sdn Bhd. The RM1.2 billion project features 3 towers comprising simplex and duplex suites, and serviced residences.

To encourage residents and users to walk more within the project, partial air-conditioned walkways, including elevated and subterranean walkways, will be built. A proposed MRT Line 3 station is also likely to be constructed in the area. Naza TTDI is working with the government to identify a site for the station.
