News - YOO Launches First Project in Malaysia
John Hitchcox, Co-Founder & Chairman of YOO was recently in Kuala Lumpur launching our first project in Malaysia with partners KSK Land. Standing strategically in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s bustling golden triangle, 8 Conlay is a mixed-use development project with an estimated Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM 5.4 Billion targeted for completion by end of 2020. The development comprises of two YOO-interior designed branded residence towers of 57- and 62-storey blocks that will be connected via two sky bridges at level 26 and 44. The development is complemented by a 68-storey five-star hotel, serviced suites and a lifestyle retail component. Europe’s oldest luxury hospitality group, Kempinski Hotels will provide services for the branded residence towers as well as managing the hotel tower.Speaking during the launch event, KSK Land Managing Director, Joanne Kua explained, “Today’s property buyers demand homes that truly reflect their lifestyles, and we are collaborating with the finest architect, interior designers and landscape architect to make 8 Conlay an elite and aspirational address for discerning home buyers and investors.” Kua explained that 8 Conlay offers much more than a stylish address. “It is a one-of-a-kind development that redefines urban living through three main elements – liveable architecture, world-class designs and bespoke personalized services,” she said. Phase one of 8 Conlay features branded residence units known as YOO8 serviced by Kempinski.Chairman and Co-founder, John Hitchcox added, “YOO is renowned for creating homes that inspire people to live better through quality design, and we expect this project will be no exception. Steve Leung and his team of designers will be able to bring more than just global ideas to the project. We have no doubt that YOO8 will set a new benchmark for luxury living experiences in Malaysia.”Residents of these elegant branded homes will have access to a variety of personalized services offered by Kempinski – from a la carte hotel services such as housekeeping and valet services, to general concierge services provided by professionally trained staff. In addition, they can enjoy innovative amenities from green gardens with private decks and a hanging jogging track, swimming pools, a private gym, to a rooftop sky lounge and bar.
