JOM: Ascott and HSL collaborate on Citadines Langit development

KUALA LUMPUR: CapitaLand Investment Limited's wholly owned lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), has collaborated with Neat Plan, the property division of Hock Seng Lee (HSL), to introduce the upscale Citadines Langit Kuching in the heart of Kuching's bustling city centre

Citadines Langit Kuching, owned by HSL, will soar 27 stories high, offering 213 contemporary accommodation units including studios, one, and two-bedroom residences. Strategically located on Jalan Tabuan, a thriving artery connecting to prime business hubs, tourist attractions, and retail havens, this property will not only redefine city living but will also boast Green Building Index (GBI) certification, standing proudly adjacent to a tower of private residential condominium units.

The genesis of HSL's visionary Langit project emerged from a nationwide architectural competition in 2021, culminating in the collaborative venture of Citadines Langit Kuching by HSL and Ascott. Designed to elevate tourism and upscale living in East Malaysia, the project aims to spotlight the charm of Kuching on the global stage, capitalizing on the surge in inbound travel demand.

Ascott country general manager, Malaysia, Mondi Mecja, said Ascott is privileged to embark on this groundbreaking venture with HSL. "Renowned for their innovative prowess in construction, HSL's vision for Project Langit resonated with us from the onset," he said.

"Citadines Langit Kuching stands as a pinnacle project in our regional portfolio. With Sarawak's promising tourism outlook, this venture exemplifies our dedication to delivering unparalleled urban living experiences, inspiring guests to embrace life's infinite possibilities," he said.

Scheduled to break ground in 2024, with completion anticipated within three years, Citadines Langit Kuching will offer state-of-the-art amenities and technologies. From a luxurious clubhouse to an inviting infinity pool, premium commercial spaces, and recreational facilities, this development is poised to redefine the standards of contemporary living. Furthermore, Citadines Langit Kuching will incorporate sustainable design elements, aligning seamlessly with the Sarawak Government's stringent guidelines for tall commercial complexes.

"We are excited to team up with Ascott in bringing Citadines brand to Langit," said HSL managing director, Datuk Paul Yu Chee Hoe.

"We believe that the distinct offerings of the Citadines brand will inject vibrancy into HSL and address a crucial supply gap, providing a much needed 4-star accommodation option in Langit," he said.
