Master Plan of KL Sentral
Kuala Lumpur Sentral features a self-contained city within a city concept comprising of:
- corporate office towers and business suite
- international hotels
- luxurious condominiums
- a shopping mall and
- an international exhibition, convention and entertainment center.
The designer, Kisho Kurokawa, who also designed the main building of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport or KLIA, is responsible for this concept of space, light and greenery.
