KUALA LUMPUR | St. Regis Hotel | 205 M / 673 FT | 48 FLOORS

Butler Serviced Hotels Come To Kuala Lumpur
Published on 23-09-2009



St Regis, the six star hotel chain is aiming at moving into the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur with hotel designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

Developed by One IFC, a joint venture between CMY Capital Sdn Bhd and Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd, the scheme is being designed to accommodate not only the 200 room hotel but also 200 apartments that will also be managed by St Regis, a brand that literally has a butler service you can call on. Bertie Wooster would approve.

With approximately 80 floors, the building will have a substantial height making it one of the tallest in Kuala Lumpur, and also one of the defining skyscrapers of the under construction business district it is set to stand in, KL Sentral.

With a square footprint, the towers design is dominated by four stacks of rectangles. These present a series of differing facades to each side of the building making them look almost like a neatly arranged self-contained collection of glass books.

The building has yet to start construction but already has a firm finish date penciled in with the hotel aimed at opening on January the first 2014 according to St Regis, a very precise date that will no doubt be watched over by Jeeves.

An article about the Hotel

and there is also a new small rendering


http://www.theedgeproperty.com/news-...r-skyline.html



The all-suite hotel will be built on a 2.2-acre freehold site in the 72-acre KL Sentral, one of the largest commercial developments in Kuala Lumpur.

St Regis Kuala Lumpur will have a total development area of 1.4 million sq ft and will be developed by One IFC Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between CMY Capital and Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB). CMY Capital is wholly owned by prominent businessman Tan Sri Chua Ma Yu, while MRCB is the master developer of KL Sentral.

ONE IFC Sdn Bhd CEO Carmen Chua believes that the development’s proximity to the KL Sentral transportation hub will contribute to its success.

She expects the hotel to attract a historically untapped market of high-income tourists as the St Regis brand caters to heads of states, diplomats, dignitaries and captains of industry.

“St Regis Kuala Lumpur will create a new benchmark in the hospitality industry and service sector and it will be a new landmark in the country’s international tourism promotion.

“It will have 200,000 sq ft of convention facilities and we will be one of the hotels with rooms that are among the largest in the world. Construction will begin next month and it is scheduled for completion and opening in November 2014. We are now at the final stage of getting the approval, ” she told The Edge Financial Daily.

However, she declined to reveal the exact room size, alongside details such as the cost per room and the number of floors. A management and operations agreement for the project with Starwood, the owner and operator of the St Regis brand, was signed in June 2008.

While the selling price of the serviced-apartment component has yet to be determined, Chua said the price tag “will be comparable to” its recently-completed residential development One KL. This project is located opposite the Petronas Twin Towers.

The serviced apartment component is scheduled for launch in 2Q2011. Located atop the hotel component, it will be managed and operated by St Regis.

The St Regis brand, which was established over 100 years ago, is the high-end brand under the Starwood portfolio. Starwood also owns and operates The Luxury Collection, W, Westin, LeMeridien and Sheraton.

Chua noted the RM1.2 billion investment is entirely private sector-driven and it is one of the largest private sector initiatives under the ETP. With a positive contribution towards economic activities expected until 2014, the project’s economic activities and its multiplier effects will contribute towards achieving an average 6% GDP growth rate under the 10th Malaysia Plan.

The investment also represents 3% of the funding required for Tourism EPP 12 of “Improving rate, mix and quality of hotels”. Total funding required for the tourism sector under the ETP will be RM39.9 billion to construct the estimated incremental rooms required by 2020, with RM38.7 billion from the private sector.

“[It is] in line with the ETP to increase tourism and tourism spending by attracting a higher-yield segment as well as increasing per capita incomes of the large employment base in the tourism sector,” she said.

St Regis Kuala Lumpur is expected to create a total of 6,200 jobs in the design, construction and hospitality industries.

In line with the objective of promoting KL as a global/regional headquarters location and attracting 100 multinational companies, Starwood has set up an office in Kuala Lumpur as its Southeast Asia regional office.

The St Regis KL’s interior designers have also committed to set up their regional headquarters in KL to serve Asia.

Chua believes that these moves can help attract local and foreign talents, spur greater economic activity, as well as generate demand for additional high-value employment.

This article appeared in the Property page, The Edge Financial Daily, October 29, 2010.
