Exterior-wise, Le Nouvel evokes an uncommon façade – one which incorporates the elements of lush greenery, glass and ample natural light.
Featured in each semi-furnished unit are Poggenpohl designed kitchens and household appliances from Miele and Lema wardrobes. Bathrooms are fully-fitted by Duravit and Hans Grohe. Holding the glass in place are silk-screened window panels.
Le Nouvel is an innovative project which was the outcome of the skilled expertise and experience of Ssangyong Engineering & Construction from South Korea, the very engineers and contractors behind Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
Jalan Ampang is one of the longest stretch of roads in the metropolitan Kuala Lumpur (KL). Jalan Ampang begins with Masjid India on one end, and ceases at AEON Big in Ampang. Located in Kuala Lumpur’s Central Business District (CBD), Le Nouvel is nestled at the nerve centre of Kuala Lumpur – exactly opposite the Petronas Twin Towers. These two twin towers are separated by the stretch of Jalan Ampang where Avenue K shopping centre is located.
The difference in Le Nouvel is that it comprises of 2 side-by-side towers standing at 49 storeys and 43 storeys. Existing buildings parallel to Le Nouvel is Wisma Equity and Lembaga Getah Malaysia. Le Nouvel is also located on the same stretch of road as Corus Hotel and Wisma MCA.

All you have to do to get to this park from Le Nouvel is just cross 2 pedestrian crossings!
An alternative is KL Eco Forest Park (formerly known as Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve), located at the base of KL Tower along Jalan P Ramlee. This “natural rainforest” park, roughly 9.37 acres in size, is a treasure trove within the city due to a scarcity of its kind! It’s among the oldest protected jungles in Kuala Lumpur and was gazetted in as far back as 1906.
Located on Jalan Raja Chulan, the park opens daily from 7am to 6pm. Admission is free. The distance between this park, which features canopied walkways, is 2 kilometres via Jalan P Ramlee.

Marvel engineering feat, world-class architecture, and superb KLCC location. These are among the unique factors of Le Nouvel at KLCC, with the Petronas Twin Towers literally at its doorstep.
Let’s not forget that the security level at this landmark residences is 5 tiers and whose architect and collaborators worked brilliantly in fusing three key elements of light, glass,and steel.
The positive aspect of this project, due to the hefty price tag that is involved, is that you get to view, touch and experience the actual thing before making any decision as this is a build-then-sell (BTS) project development by Wing Tai.
Wing Tai also manages serviced residences under the Lanson Place outfit, a high-end hospitality investment and management brand in Asia.
The presence of this brand in Kuala Lumpur can be experienced at Lanson Place at Bukit Ceylon, or Ambassador Row Hotel Suites by Lanson Place along Jalan Ampang Hilir.
