Petaling District is one of the nine districts in the west coast state of Selangor. Located centrally in the Klang Valley region, fringed between Kuala Lumpur and Klang, the district is the most populated and developed in the state, where many major towns are located. The administration of this district falls under the purview of Petaling District and Land Office.
The construction of a new district administrative complex was planned on a 4.5 hectare site located in Section U5, replacing the old premises located in Subang Jaya town centre. The site is surrounded by mature housing developments with comprehensive infrastructure and road networks. The complex also houses several other district departments, such as public works, drainage & irrigation and welfare.
The development consists of a five-storey office block housing various district administrative offices arranged around an open courtyard, the main hall and staff quarters. The three main blocks are linked by an open corridor walkway facing the internal courtyard. Four units of detached houses are built in the left section for the chief officers, with two detached rooms for services and utilities are located in the northern section, near to a man-made lake.
The modern architecture of the complex reflects a contemporary look of the office building. Finished with steel cladding and glass curtain wall on the external façade side, it is emboldened with a series round columnar. Equipped with deep overhang roofing, the internal spaces are further shaded by the horizontal shading devices fixed between the columnar structures.
