Glenmarie is one of Selangor’s most exciting areas and one that property investors will want to be familiar with. It is already a central business hub with more than 80 multinational corporations based here. And now Sg. Besi Construction Sdn Bhd is hoping to make it a true lifestyle destination with The Glenz, a complex hailed as the first transit-oriented development in Glenmarie.

The project is next to a Kerjaya LRT3 Station. The under construction line will help serve the Western Corridor of Klang Valley when it opens. The Glenz contains 262 suites, 168 offices, eight multi-storey shops, grocery store and The Kensington Business Hotel.

The exciting project is starting to take shape after developer Sg. Besi Construction Sdn Bhd signed a Memorandum of Understanding with several prospective tenants and business owners for its food and beverage zone, corporate offices, pre-school and supermarket. Hailed as an integrated lifestyle project, The Glenz promises the public the utmost convenience with everything at their fingertips.

“The Glenz is an exciting business address strategically located and intelligently built with ample parking bays. It is an integrated development that offers a conducive and convenient place for work and leisure pursuits besides being an excellent investment opportunity,” Mak Hon Weng, Chief Operating Officer of Sg. Besi Construction Sdn Bhd, explained during a press conference.

He added, “The Glenz is expected to add value creation to Glenmarie with its well-planned low density profile. Being priced lower as compared with other transit-oriented developments with similar density, he says this is a golden opportunity not to be missed.”

During the MoU ceremony, upscale grocer Oliver Gourmet agreed to serve as the anchor tenant with Union Artisan Coffee; Fei Fan Hotpot; Ying Ker Luo Hakka Cuisine, Japanese dessert chain Fuwagori and Maruki Ramen Tokyo among the F&B options. The first WeGlam beauty hub in Malaysia is also set to open at The Glenz.

Meanwhile, several firms reserved office space including Jiangsu Suzhong Construction Group Co., Ltd, one of China’s largest private international contractors. Additionally, Vestland Group, Armani Group and KPR Group all booked en bloc floors.

The Glenz is a freehold development spread across 2.52 acres in Glenmarie that is situated close to a thriving education and medical hub. The developer noted this, along with the LRT connectivity, means the project will be one of the most in-demand addresses in the area.
