NAZA TTDI TO SPEND RM20 MILLION FOR THE ADOPTION OF MERTOPOLIS PARK AT KL METROPOLIS UNDER GREENER KL INITIATIVE

April 28 2017

Naza TTDI is now part of the Greener KL initiative with the latest adoption of Metropolis Park. The 5-acre park at KL Metropolis is part of Naza TTDI’s proactive corporate social responsibility (CSR) program to help enhance and maintain green spaces in Klang Valley. Naza TTDI will manage the RM20 million park over a duration of 15 years under the adoption program.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Adnan bin Tengku Mansor, Naza TTDI Deputy Executive Chairman and Group Managing Director SM Faliq SM Nasimuddin, and Kuala Lumpur Mayor, Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz attended the ground-breaking ceremony of Metropolis Park at KL Metropolis today.

Naza TTDI has entered into an agreement with Kuala Lumpur City Hall or DBKL (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur) under the Government’s Greener Kuala Lumpur programme, which falls under the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley initiative.

Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan said, “This initiative is a mutually beneficial way to significantly improve Kuala Lumpur’s air quality. In doing so, we continue our journey towards a greener lifestyle for current and future generations, which is in line with the Greener KL initiative.”

“The Metropolis Park is Naza TTDI’s proactive support for the Greener KL Initiative. This urban park will be the green lung of KL Metropolis as it serves as a transition and connects MITEC with MET 3,” explained SM Faliq. He continued that Naza TTDI will be planting about 300 trees and 10 different species of flowers in Metropolis Park.

Metropolis Park will be a place where visitors can enjoy lunch or read under a canopy of trees much like other famous parks around the world. This natural lush area has a 27,000 sq. ft. information centre and community hall with rooftop lawn. Residents and visitors can have plenty of outdoor activities. The amphitheatre, the sculpture park, kinetic fitness stations, the jogging path, the dry and wet playground, picnic mound, terrace garden, and the event lawn make Metropolis Park a unique al fresco location in Kuala Lumpur.

Metropolis Park is next to the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), the first component of the total 75.5-acre KL Metropolis and Malaysia’s largest exhibition space.

Apart from MITEC, KL Metropolis is divided into 8 precincts namely MET 1, MET 2, MET 3, MET 5, MET 6, MET 7, MET 8 and MET 9. MET 3 is a 15-acre component of mixed development. With a GDV of RM8.5 billion, MET 3 has been slated to include a 5-star hotel, grade A office towers, luxury residences, a two million sq. ft. lifestyle mall and a 100-storey Naza signature tower.

KL Metropolis was launched on 25 Oct 2011 with three strategic joint ventures to date. On 2 September, Naza TTDI started collaborating with Nusmetro Property Sdn Bhd for the development of 3.29 acres with three towers consisting of serviced suites, serviced residences and managed residences. The targeted completion for the towers is by year 2019.
