It will complement the government's vision to transform the broader TRX precinct into a world-class business and financial hub.

The Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) Lifestyle Precinct is one of Lendlease Group's largest integrated development in Asia. It is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and will complement the Government's vision to transform the broader TRX precinct into a world-class business and financial hub.

The company attributes its success as a leading international property and infrastructure group with operations in Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas to its vision to create places that inspire and enrich the lives of people around the world.

This experiential lifestyle destination will introduce Malaysia to a new concept in mixed-use development and sustainable urban regeneration. The mixed-use development landmark will encompass a new international financial district underpinned by world-class residential, retail, leisure and cultural offerings.

"When we first looked at this project a few years ago, we knew instinctively that it represented an opportunity for Lendlease to bring to Malaysia and the region a new concept in mixed-development while promoting conservation and sustainable use of resources," says Steve McCann, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director (MD), Lendlease Group.

A 17-acre pedestrianized, retail-led mixed-use development that comprises a luxury hotel, six residential towers and a large scale retail destination connected to a 10-acre city park and dedicated Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) station, The Exchange TRX is supported by excellent infrastructure and connectivity, including KL's largest MRT station and only MRT Interchange, access to the MEX Highway, SMART Tunnel and other primary arteries of KL such as Jalan Tun Razak.

This 17-acre mixed-use development has a GDV of US$3.1bil (RM9.31bil) and comprises a hotel, retail destination, and residential and office towers that are connected to Kuala Lumpur's first 10-acre rooftop city park.

The Exchange TRX will bring to life what is often called the 'experience economy', forecast to reach US$8.2 trillion in global expenditure by 2028, as experiences become the predominant economic and societal offering as people spend more on social activities.

"Through purposeful designs and activation of mixed-use assets spanning retail, residences and the city park, The Exchange TRX will be an experiential lifestyle destination that is intended to engage, enrich, educate, deliver memorable and personalised experiences to create inclusive and connected communities," Steve adds.

Speaking at the recent precinct launch of The Exchange TRX, Dato Haji Azmar Talib, Chief Executive Officer of TRX City, feels that The Exchange TRX has all the components to complement the Government's vision to transform the broader Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) development into Malaysia's first international financial district.

The combination of these three segments provides it with a sustainable competitive advantage and allows it to provide innovative integrated solutions for customers.

Steve also expressed Lendlease's excitement to be part of this landmark project. "The Exchange TRX epitomises our organisation's vision in creating the best places and will see Lendlease bringing together the best of our international expertise to Malaysia," he said.
