M101 Bukit Bintang

With the area under the auspices of economic transformation, M101 Bukit Bintang will become an integral part of Bukit Bintang itself. The area functions as one of the key parts of the Greater KL economic district in the Malaysia of tomorrow.

The development of the upcoming Tun Razak Exchange will form the new apex of the Golden Triangle, and M101 Bukit Bintang sits right there at its doorstep.

Even while enjoying the cocooning privacy of this sanctuary, one is but a few steps away from accessing the city proper and the surrounding suburbs and areas. Having 4 LRT and monorail stations and other public transportation facilities almost right next to the M101 Bukit Bintang means that owners of this project are never too far away from the best things KL has to offer.

The location is prime with its close proximity to landmark shopping areas such as Pavilion, Suria KLCC, Starhill Gallery, Berjaya Times Square and Sungei Wang.

M101 Bukit Bintang proves to be amongst the most desired addresses in the city. Its location within the Bukit Bintang Golden Triangle (BBGT) region puts M101 Bukit Bintang in the midst of a cornucopia of retail and commercial outlets that cater to every need and want imaginable.

Upon its completion, M101 Bukit Bintang will be turned into the first Monopoly-themed hotel in the world, the Monopoly Mansion. The hotel will also be by managed by M101’s hospitality arm, Sirocco Hospitality Group Sdn Bhd (Sirocco). Featuring 255 rooms, 14 floors, Grand Ballroom, Meeting Rooms, Swimming Pool, Gym, Spa, Sky Lounge, Restaurant and Coffee House, which all of it will have a 1920s style to it.

M101 Bukit Bintang is located within the Bukit Bintang Golden Triangle (BBGT) together with the government’s Greater KL projects like the Tun Razak Exchange and the country’s new tallest building Menara Warisan.

Summary

When M101 Holdings appeared in the property scene and brazenly positioned themselves with the objective of ‘Redefining the Skyline of Kuala Lumpur’, naturally people would want to get to know the background of the developer.

It is good to see that the development company, despite its young history, is being led by senior property advisors in the industry.

With such a massive project in the pipeline to further spur the country to the fore, we were keen to find out what they have got to offer and be part of the deal.

In essence, these 10 buildings will be located across the city bearing tall towers of over 50 floors with units at a minimum size of 400sf, starting with the price of approximately RM500,000. Now, the average market would be able to partake and be the owner of a property in one of the main leading countries of ASEAN.

To this end, M101 has pledged RM10 million from its 10 developments in the next five years to drive property tourism in Malaysia. M101 expects this bold initiative to chalk up RM75 million in international tourism receipts.

Due to the special partnership that has been struck between M101 Holdings and the Ministry of Tourism of Malaysia, the development of all 10 buildings that would be known as the modern ‘Definer’ of Kuala Lumpur skyline, are going to be the focus of the region as we head for Vision 2020 in this exciting journey.
