In meeting the need for a new and better-connected financial hub in Asia, TRX is a development of both local and global importance.
International businesses setting up regional headquarters to serve the USD4 Trillion economy of ASEAN, as well as the giant markets of Asia, are well-positioned here. TRX offers them a competitive edge from comparative cost efficiencies, a high standard of living and a wide pool of experienced, well-educated and multi-lingual talent.
As Kuala Lumpur’s best address, designed to global standards of excellence, TRX will be much more than a next-generation super-connected Central Business District. Whilst offices will reach skywards as a monument to Malaysian endeavour and vision, at street level the space has been conceived as a world class urban park constructed to the highest environmental standards. It will attract and create a sophisticated multi-cultural, multi-skilled community with an international perspective.
TRX’s vision of elevating Kuala Lumpur to a globally recognised standard of excellence is backed by the creation of a unique and multi-layered live/work/play/repeat urban superstructure with unparalleled access and connectivity.
Kuala Lumpur is situated at the center of the burgeoning ASEAN region, a vibrant heart that bridges the West, South and East Asia. And the new nucleus of the city is TRX, which will connect Malaysia seamlessly to the world. TRX’s digital backbone and smart-city technology will elevate the district’s service level while, at the same time, make it a benchmark of world class transport connectivity, anchored by a dedicated MRT infrastructure linked to the international airport.
International firms seeking a regional headquarters and local companies looking to stand among giants and reach out to the world will come together in the cool, calm space of TRX. Global headliners such as HSBC, Prudential and Lendlease are moving in. At the same time related auxiliary services firms are quickly populating TRX, to better connect themselves to various opportunities.
Sustainability has been at the core of the TRX masterplan and the eco-system will be a model of best practice and next generation sustainable design. Through partnership with Veolia, efficient water use and wastewater recycling is built into its very heart, while smart building designs further optimise the use of electricity in the district. Paired with its green-first, open park concept, this is a leading development in demonstrating how economic and environmental interests can be close partners that benefit each other.
TRX is a 70 acre campus designed as an urban village around a central park. The whole district has been designed to optimise the combination of high-rise office and residential accommodation with low level spaces for retail and hospitality. From the street level park, through to the retail and event spaces, and on to the office towers, TRX is open, safe and welcoming -- a space that extends into the city via covered footpaths and brings together the best of commerce and social activities.
TRX is all about people and people need public spaces in which to relax, exercise, celebrate, play and generally be happy. Much thought has gone into crafting the detailed design of the public spaces, centred around an urban park that meets and exceeds global standards. The public spaces are positioned to connect all aspects of the built environment in an intuitive way, enabling the community to easily discover every corner of their urban village.
When it comes to the infrastructure, or hardware, of cities of the future, there are two basic building blocks that feature strongly: sustainability and technology. Both are closely intertwined. Unless one were to build a city from the ground up, many times these key building blocks are difficult to add on later. When done as an afterthought, you are rarely able to truly maximise its benefits.
When stepping into the TRX district, there is a distinct sense of space that expands before you. Right in the middle of the city, wide green open space leads you through the development and connects the public retail space to the office towers and into the residential quarter.
Individual developments rarely have leverage over a city’s planning. In the past, they were designed to maximise the footprint, and squeeze value from every square metre. But this resulted in many missed opportunities in making cities live, work and play better.
