YTL Headquaters at 205 Jalan Bukit Bintang will provide a single home for many of the group’s core businesses and offer state-of-the-art facilities for a dynamic new workforce, while staying faithful to its traditional roots by continuing to call Bukit Bintang home.
Featuring striking design that befits this iconic part of the city as well as YTL’s own outlook towards architectural excellence, the 41-storey tower comprises a total built-up area of 392,021sq.ft. and houses two levels of basement parking, as well as parking bays from level 1 to 7.
The tower hosts meeting rooms on levels 9 and 10, while offices occupy levels 13 through to 39. The building also features a cafe, sky lobby, roof garden and town hall on level 8.
Furthermore, the building would have to stand apart and be distinctive in typical YTL fashion in a part of the city where everything already stands tall.
To bring the vision to life, new benchmarks in innovative design were called into play, employing sleek and slim eye-catching design and a ”crystal” façade finish that distinguishes YTL Headquaters from neighbouring towers. The crystal design language of the building’s façade is achieved through artfully folded glass that creates a gem-like effect with variations in light reflection and contrasting textures.
The configuration of the glass façade is also a symbolic representation of the multi-faceted nature of the YTL Group, while from the interior it serves to enhance views of the vibrant KL city centre skyline.
With office space of between 10,656sq.ft. and 12,056sq.ft. in each floor has been designed with ergonomic comfort in mind and intelligent temperature control sensors to ensure the individual comfort of staff members. Additionally, the air-conditioning refrigerant utilises non-CFC agents which have zero ozone depleting potential.
