SHAH ALAM: The i-City Golden Triangle (i-City GT) in the capital city of Selangor is set to be on par with world-class cities around the world, with its cutting-edge technologies and 400G-capable network connectivity.
Through a conscious adoption of technology to challenge the boundaries of developments and product offerings, i-City GT leverages on this competitive advantage to widen its sphere of influence among the leading players in the industry.
Dubbed as Malaysia No 1 technology city, it is an international class, master-planned transit-oriented development of the highest standard, designed to stimulate Selangor's economic growth as a centre of commerce.
This city within a city is not just any property development. The purpose of the ultrapolis is also to establish business activities that will revolutionise this location as an eminent global technology and innovation centre, embodying a true example for the way developers plan their future projects, taking into account the new norm and lifestyles brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
To uplift the living standards of those within the community, i-City GT is expanding into the service industry, specialising in information technology (IT) and finance.
A testament to its ability in creating a cohesive and connected smart living community, this infusion of technology is already at work with the i-City SuperApp, where functions are integrated for payments, parking and other services within the ultrapolis.
By embedding elements of IT which is widespread within businesses of the service sector, i-City GT will be a destination of choice for global technology companies which plan to relocate to the Southeast Asian region, particularly Malaysia, for its world-class infrastructure and a readily-available pool of knowledge workers.
To further realise the group’s goal and transform i-City GT which is underpinned by a local blueprint but with a global footprint, partnerships are being forged with technology leaders all over the world including Huawei International, HIKVision and SenseTime.
Present collaborations with illustrious global names like Servcorp of Australia, Hilton Group of the USA and Central Group of Thailand are marks of confidence in i-City GT, in addition to the foreign direct investments attracted into the capital city of Selangor.
I-Bhd has successfully planted the seeds of growth that have turned i-City GT into an important hub of economic transformation containing living, working and recreation as its lifeblood.
Truly an important catalytic component within the Selangor Economic Corridor, i-City GT is well on its way to becoming a dynamic component, if not already.
This ultrapolis is a breath-taking example of an active, modern and futuristic city, embodying the proliferation of technology in a planned city, revolutionising property development into a service economy and outstretching its key role as a major leader of the future.
Sumurwang Tower, the new Green Building Index-certified Grade-A office tower is the latest addition in i-City GT, where ABC (A-Artificial Intelligence, B-Big Data, C-Cloud Computing) and smart features are employed.
Its latest residential project, BeCentral that is situated adjacent to Central i-City mall and neighbouring the DoubleTree by Hilton, employs facial recognition and QR codes for entry and car park access.
Importantly, the driving force of ICT development today also includes a second brain – one that completes the entire ICT eco-system to transform, upgrade and promote smart township management and building automation.
When completed, the ultrapolis will be an integrated IT-centric urban international city comprising a shopping mall, an iconic 78-storey tower, Grade A corporate office towers, a Tier-3 data centre, an innovation hub as well as hotels, recreation and residences.
