TREC, the latest major development in the heart of Kuala Lumpur was recently last Thursday. Located along bustling Jalan Tun Razak, the TREC lifestyle and entertainment hub will sit directly opposite the future Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) – the new financial hub of Kuala Lumpur on land owned by the Royal Selangor Golf Club.
TREC will assimilate a variety of styles, atmospheres and moods into five separate zones offering casual and fine dining, quirky and artsy independent cafes, wine bars, pubs, lounges and clubs with the aim of attracting a diverse demographic of international tourists and local patrons.
With Phase 1 expected to be complete in early 2015 and the grand opening slated for mid-2015, TREC is now requesting registration of interest from suitable qualified food, beverage and entertainment operators.
“Kuala Lumpur has not seen any large-scale integrated entertainment developments in recent times. This is an area where we are falling behind our ASEAN neighbours. TREC will provide a safe, integrated entertainment destination for locals and a focal point for tourists in Malaysia,” explained founder, Cher Ng.
“As an important development in Kuala Lumpur, TREC will also create over 1,500 jobs and we estimate the development will add RM143 million to the local economy annually.”
As Malaysia’s first and only purpose-built urban F&B, lifestyle and entertainment destination, TREC will pioneer the one-stop integrated entertainment district that has made the likes of Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong, Shanghai’s Xin Tian Di and Singapore’s Clarke Quay, must-visit locations in their respective countries.
Built on a seven-acre (3 ha) site, TREC will feature front row views over the spectacular greens of the venerable Royal Selangor Golf Course and will be adjacent to the new location of Zouk KL, Kuala Lumpur’s premier clubbing hot spot. TREC will provide both tourists and locals an unrivaled entertainment centre within Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle, boasting over 200,000 square feet of space, with a total of 77 units ranging from 400 sq ft to 5,000 sq ft, allowing TREC to target an unparalleled tenant mix in terms of scale and diversity in Malaysia.
