The new Cyberjaya City Centre will be the next mega project in the Klang Valley. Here are the 10 things you should know.
1. MRCB and Cyberview will Jointly Develop CCC
If you don’t already know, MRCB Land Sdn Bhd is the same company which develops KL Sentral CBD while Cyberview Sdn Bhd is now known as the Tech Hub Enabler
land owner of Cyberjaya.
2. The Gross Development Value is Huge
The first phase is estimated to have a gross development value (GDV) of RM5.35 billion over a period of seven years.
3. The City Centre Area is Huge, too
The whole CCC covers around 21.6 hectares of land, that’s about the size of 49 football fields. That’s only for phase I. When the whole all have phases havebeen completed, it will cover around 53 hectares which is equivalent to around 120 football fields.
4. Integrated Rail and MRT Systems
What’s a city without an efficient transportation system? Cyberjaya will be integrated with the Sg Buloh – Putrajaya MRT line (with two dedicated stations), KLIA Ekspres and the proposed KL-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR).
5. Construction will Begin in 2016
The developers will begin building the city by the first half of 2016. Phase one will consist of commercial blocks, an integrated lifestyle and retail arena, serviced residential complexes and a convention centre. It’s happening sooner than you think.
6. A Travelator will Connect CCC and Putrajaya Sentral
An 800-metre long travelator will be built to connect CCC and Putrajaya Sentral. This is to make travel more seamless for commuters. The travelator will cross a wide highway that’s seperating CCC and the station.
7. It’s less than 25 minutes from KLIA and KLIA2
Businessmen and frequent travellers would like to do business in Cyberjaya City Centre due to its close proximity to the airport.
8. Green, Green and More Green
The city will be covered with greenery, is eco-friendly, has low carbon footprints and everything will be energy efficient.
9. It’s a “22nd Century City”
Forget about the 21st century, CCC will be the city of the future. Cyberview will be introducing new technologies for the city as it becomes one of the smartest cities in the world. Many things will be integrated with the web – think of it as the Internet of Things (IoT).
10. Cyberjaya will Have a Focal Point
Just like Kuala Lumpur’s City Centre, Cyberjaya will have its own focal point through CCC. It will bring more culture and soul to the city like never before.
