Brickfields enjoys spillover effects
OVER the last eight years, the profile of Brickfields has slowly developed, according to international property consultant C H Williams Talhar & Wong Sdn Bhd senior executive director P’ng Soo Theng. “There has been hardly any land in Brickfields for further development and improvement the lastseveral years. The image of Brickfields was built on efforts to develop the RM8 billion integrated KL Sentral transport and commercial hub located just opposite,” P’ng said. He said Brickfields will be further enhanced when the three million sq ft of commercial properties, currently under construction at KL Sentral, is completed by 2016.
A model of the integrated KL Sentral
About 19 million sq ft was approved by the Government for thedevelopment of KL Sentral. So far, 4.5 million sq ft of commercial and residential projects have been completed. A further 11.5 million sq ft of land will be utilised for future developments. P'ng told Business Times that Brickfields will enjoy the spillover effects of KL Sentral, which is expected to be completed by 2016, boosting property prices further. In fact, prices of properties in Brickfields have been rising since the integrated commercial hub started in 1997, he added.
