The Grade A Office building has a net lettable area (NLA) of more than 500,000 square feet. Standing out in the Kuala Lumpur skyline, the ‘Green Building Index’ (GBI) accredited tower is part of the RM4billion Platinum Park.

 “Its strategic location, given its close proximity to the shopping and commercial hub of Kuala Lumpur, will be exceptionally attractive to business and commercial tenants, both domestic and international. Not to mention, accessibility via Jalan Tun Razak and the major highways provides convenience to the towers’ tenants,” added SM Nasarudin.

The Naza Tower has a unique helical shape, creating a 'twisting upwards' effect over the course of its height. Each floor plan is similar but is set a few degrees clockwise from the floors below, giving the tower an innovative structure that provides for desirable views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

The building core is a cylindrical concrete form that acts as the central pillar for the tower. As the building ascends, the rotation at each floor occurs around this central mass. The cylindrical core also diffuses daylight to interior spaces, optimizing occupants with bright views with limited electricity needed.

In 2012, the Naza Tower was awarded 'Best Office Architecture' by the International Property Awards, Asia Pacific.

Located within a prestigious KLCC business address, the Naza Tower's strategic location has good accesibility via MAJU Expressway, North-South Highway, DUKE Highway and AKLEH Highway.

Internal and external road networks such as Persiaran KLCC, Jalan Binjai, Jalan Stonor, Jalan Conlay, Jalan Kia Peng, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Sultan Ismail provide easy commute. It is also a short walking distance from the Ampang Park LRT Station.

In the coming months, the Naza Tower is expected to have international cafes and restaurants on its ground floor and 50th floor.
