AnalysisFormerly known as MUI Plaza, it has revitalised and upgraded itself to the modern looking Menara Hap Seng. As the name suggests, the anchor tenant here is Hap Seng, which moved to its new headquarters in 2004. As the PACC is in a central area of the city, and is near many of KL's top hotels such as the Shangri-La, Pacific Regency, and the Crowne Plaza, it is an excellent place to hold conventions or product launches on a smaller scale without having to pay the extreme cost of holding it at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre which is also close by.The Podium area of Menara Hap Seng is a good fit for the area, as it provides workers both within the building, and close by to enjoy a good meal with colleagues or clients, or just relax with a massage treatment after a hard day's work. Current tenants include Brussels Beer Cafe, Cigars Lounge, Dessert Bar, Maybank, Starbucks, CIMB, a florist, specialist golf store, and much more. As a result, other prospective businesses will be in good stead with many excellent lifestyle-related tenants around. As for renting the office space, Menara Hap Seng is an excellent place especially with its modern facelift. Although there are many other office spaces to rent, it is well located and perfect for greeting clients.
