High-end residential market segment is gaining momentum in the major city centre in recent years. In the Golden Triangle precinct of Kuala Lumpur, there have been many existing and upcoming luxurious apartment developments, catered to the expatriates, working professionals and tourists alike, especially those who are into the hustle and bustle of inner-city living.
Sandwiched between the Pavilion Mall and the newly refurbished Grand Millennium Hotel on Jalan Bukit Bintang, the proposed Millennium Residences by Singapore-based developer, CDL, was envisaged to be the tallest building in the vicinity. Inspired by a concave form of a space capsule, the slender tower is topped with a 15-storey pinnacle structure, clad with sleek façade made of glass and steel materials.
The interplay of colour palette will further enhance the building visibility, with the combination of dark-grey and steel hues of the tower structure and the stark contrast of the gold/turquoise of the glass curtain wall. This will embellish the interior finishing of the tower, symbolising the feeling of prosperity. During the day, the façade shall reflect the natural light while turning a colourful beacon during the night time.
The 43-storey tower accommodates 132 units of deluxe serviced apartment, hotel rooms, common facilities, and parking podium. It is planned to be integrated with the nearby hotel and retail outlets, which are plentiful in the surrounding area. The unique architecture of Millennium Residences will set apart in redefining the urban luxurious residences.
