Oakwood Premier Kuala Lumpur will make its debut at the Malaysian capital’s iconic Merdeka 118 precinct. The new landmark is set to become the world’s second tallest and Southeast Asia’s tallest building soaring 118 storeys at the height of 644 metres upon completion.
It will occupy one of the residential towers within the Merdeka 118 development. There will be 348 serviced residences with one-, two- and three-bedroom categories. They also feature spacious living spaces of up to 120 square metres in size, suitable for both business and leisure guests. Proposed facilities include an all-day dining restaurant/bar, executive club lounge, residents’ lounge, meeting facilities, fitness centre, swimming pool and children’s playroom.
Oakwood Premier Kuala Lumpur Is scheduled to open in December 2024. It will join Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur as the second Oakwood branded property in the city.
Oakwood will manage the property for PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn. Berhad (PMVSB), a wholly owned subsidiary of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB).
Oakwood Premier Kuala Lumpur will complement Merdeka 118’s vision for work, retail, living and public spaces. This unique precinct is integrated to offer a thriving core of commerce, culture and heritage. With the highest observation deck in Southeast Asia, the giant mixed-use commercial and residential development, that is surrounded by four acres of greenery and open spaces, is anticipated to attract business and leisure travellers from around the world. Overlooking Stadium Merdeka, Malaysia’s national treasure and a UNESCO heritage site where the country’s independence was declared in 1957, the precinct occupies the former Merdeka Park (Taman Tunku) and is directly linked to Kuala Lumpur’s MRT, with the Merdeka Mass Rapid Transit station already in operation.
The Merdeka 118 tower will be the first tower in Malaysia to achieve both local and international triple green platinum accreditations, namely the Green Building Index (GBI), Green Real Estate (GreenRE) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
