"The development of such a prestigious project in the heart of Kuala Lumpur is a symbol of the robust vitality of our knowledge economy and its value to the nation."

Just as approaches and attitudes to work have evolved, so is the work environment changing to satisfy the demand for more inspiring and rewarding work experiences. Successful companies today recognise the value of workers and ensure their offices provide an environment that is highly conducive to business.

The Gardens North & South Towers in Kuala Lumpur, developed by IGB Corporation Berhad, epitomise the modern workplace. Located in the heart of the vibrant, mixed-use Mid Valley City development – literally a city within a city – The Gardens set a new benchmark for office design. As well as providing some of the largest and most efficient office floor plans in the region, the 32-storey towers offer a standard of luxury seldom seen in office buildings.

Robert Tan, group managing director, says The Gardens North & South Towers reflect the rapid growth of the knowledge economy and Malaysia's position as a centre of commerce.

"Such dynamism demands an unprecedented level of care and service – a prestigious workplace for the 21st century that can integrate quality, hospitality, diversity, choice and convenience within an environment for clients, colleagues and guests. In many respects, these towers are more like luxurious hotels – they have gracious lobbies and are directly linked to adjacent hotel amenities and shopping precincts."

Tan says each tower has more than 425,000sq ft of gross lettable area, with typical floor plates ranging in size from 2500sq ft to 16,000sq ft.

"There has been an increasing demand for premium office space in Kuala Lumpur, and the Klang Valley in particular. The Gardens Towers are able to meet the demand from companies searching for huge floor sizes of more than 30,000sq ft."

Tan says the open-plan floor layouts can accommodate one, three or six tenants per floor. The triangular shape of the tenancies ensures a high percentage of offices have views. The full glass curtain wall has also been designed to minimise solar gain and noise.

Both The Gardens North & South Towers are MDeC (Multimedia Development Corp) approved buildings, developed in accordance with MSC (Multimedia Super Corridor, Malaysia) initiatives. Companies that have MSC status can enjoy income tax breaks as well as other benefits offered by the government under the MSC Bill of Guarantees.

"In the past, such companies have invariably been based outside the city centre," says Tan. "This project puts them right in the heart of the business district.

Major anchor tenants in The Gardens South Tower, which already has 90% occupancy, include Steelcase, and Wong and Partners – a division of Baker & McKenzie. BHP Billiton Shared Services Malaysia is a key tenant in The Gardens North Tower.

Tenants have the added reassurance that in the past few decades IGB Corporation Berhad has an impeccable track record in managing high-occupancy landmark properties in Kuala Lumpur, including Menara IGB, Centrepoint North and South, and Menara Tan & Tan.
