Client : Perbadanan Kampung Bharu (PKB)
In line with the continuous effort of developing Kampong Bharu into a future central district, KB Corp identified a 41.5 acre site to be the location for the Kampong Bharu Master Plan. This development aims to establish a public place as a community centre for Kampong Bharu, with state of the art strategies of Urban Design, and a Commercial district development that would create interest for investors into becoming stake holders.
The masterplan introduces a pedestrian bridge- “Saloma Link” – spanning over Sungai Kelang and AKLEH highway to connect two commercial city centre districts, namely, Kampong Bharu City Centre and Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). The network of pedestrian pathways established will offer a variety of experiences, creating a dynamic walkable metropolis that prioritises pedestrians’ choice and comfort. Designed for large public gatherings, special events and celebrations, the linkage also presents to its users, intimate streets, avenues, boulevards and urban plazas, thus encouraging pedestrian movement throughout the city.
