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.
As developments around the world embrace a more holistic thinking, they are embracing future property values that far exceed those who aim to capture short-term and unsustainable revenues.
TRX is a development designed to prove this line of thought. As Asia’s newest financial hub, its economic mark exceeds far beyond itself. Not only does it reach out to and embrace the city, its citizens and professional workforce, it creates links into the heart of the immense financial machine that is Asia.
Its centralities – both in terms of economic and cultural potential – can redraw the city’s character.
TRX is designed such so it can live up to its vision. The district is fed through major roads and highways that link the city to its international airport, centre of governance and the central business district.
Pedestrians in and around the KL’s Golden Triangle, where TRX is part of, will discover a world-class experience. Conducive streetscapes and covered walkways reach out from TRX, heading into neighbours such as Imbi, Bukit Bintang and the KL City Centre, help form an interconnected central business district that contains entertainment, shopping and tourist spots.
Walking into TRX will be like walking from a city of today into one of tomorrow. Pedestrians will find outdoor comfort and security traversing TRX’s network of walkways and throughout the district’s 10- acre central urban park. A rooftop park unlike any other, the TRX High Park sits atop a four-storey shopping mall that is part of the district’s lifestyle precinct. It will be KL’s new hotspot for arts and events.
The TRX development is a shot in the arm that will rejuvenate this quarter of the city, awakening the commercial and tourist energies and providing a new gravitational pull for businesses and visitors Share this
This new ethos of pedestrian first in a city known for its love of cars, by the most significant development it has seen in decades, is a major shift, and a timely one.
Central business district living within the TRX residential quarter is an experience in living sustainably. The daily commute is a walk through the park. F&B, entertainment and retail is within easy reach as are the charms of the older part of the Golden Triangle. Underneath all that, state-of-the-art digital infrastructure, renewable energy, district-wide water treatment and recycling plants power daily life within TRX.
TRX is a transformational force for KL city, a new benchmark, especially for its nearest neighbours – Bukit Bintang and Imbi. While they were once the pace-setters of the city, over the years, their energy has matured. The TRX development is a shot in the arm that will rejuvenate this quarter of the city, awakening the commercial and tourist energies and providing a new gravitational pull for businesses and visitors alike.
TRX has much to offer, today and far into the future. Watch for the next article, where we’ll see how it fits into and helps drive to the development of finance in Asia.
