Slated for completion in 2020, the 260 rooms hotel will be 56 storeys tall.
Located next to the Southgate commercial centre and opposite the old Sungai Besi Royal Malaysian Air Force Base known as the Bandar Malaysia development, the 4-acre mixed-use development will also feature twin-towers of serviced apartments and retail components.
Built on freehold land, the entire development has an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM1.3 billion.
“We are delighted to welcome Mercure-branded hotel to Peninsular Malaysia and to bring this exciting new development to Sungai Besi. We look forward to working with AccorHotels to inject more vitality in the vicinity,” said Dato’ Sri Michael Tan, chief executive officer and managing director of BLSB.
“I am confident that this contemporary new hotel will add to the appeal of the Sungai Besi business hub and introduce AccorHotels’ well-known hospitality to guests and residents. Our hotel will contribute to the ongoing economic success of the area and its residents’ desire for modern accommodations, excellent service and exciting places to eat and drink.”
“Strategically located within city limits, the development will revitalize the area without jeopardizing its identity, and achieve sustainable urban growth by bringing people back to reside in the city.”
Garth Simmons, chief operating officer, AccorHotels for Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore said, “Partnering with BLSB, the newly-built Mercure Kuala Lumpur Trion will become another AccorHotels brand landmark in Peninsular Malaysia. The Mercure brand offers an authentic experience rooted in their local community and the strength of international network of more than 700 hotels in 56 countries, with a strong quality commitment and warm experience of the hotels.”
Elaborating more on the mixed- use development, BLSB’S property development general manager Steven Ooi Hock Ang said it will be known as Trion Kuala Lumpur.
“Trion will be an iconic development with the tallest twin-tower residential building in Malaysia at 66 storeys.”
“As Binastra Land’s flagship development in Sungai Besi, this integrated development is set to become a new buzzword in the definition of ‘Live, Work, Play‘. “
