This 55-story, 235-meter mixed-use tower developed by the Dijaya Corporation will become a unique destination within Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle district, widely considered the city’s commercial, retail, and entertainment hub.

Providing an exclusive address along a major downtown thoroughfare, the SOM-designed tower will offer 354 one-to-four-bedroom apartments on the top 28 floors. The independent residential building will feature its own open-air rooftop pool and top-floor amenities, including a gym and a multipurpose recreation room.

Emulating W’s motto: “inspiring, iconic, innovative and influential,” the five-star, 10-story hotel located directly below the residential building will be the boutique hotel collection’s first location in Malaysia. The 150-key WKL will cater to both business travelers and tourists alike.

A 12-story podium will house the hotel’s sky lobby, luxurious spa, main ballroom, and meeting and banquet rooms, as well as destination lounges, signature restaurants, and car parking. An outdoor pool, featuring a pool-side bar, will be located on the podium rooftop.

Separate entrances for residential, hotel, and ballroom components will all be provided on the ground floor, with a designated elevator bank for the exclusive residences. Shuttle elevators from the ground floor will provide access to the sky lobby and the public functions of the hotel, as well as parking.
