According to our local expert, Betty Chen business looking to set up in Kuala Lumpur should seriously consider KL City Centre and KL Sentral.
They are the main business district in KL and provide addresses that are close to major players in a number of industries including oil and gas, I.T. services and high technology.
The prices for serviced office space starts from RM600 per desk, depending on the location and requirements.
It is always worth keeping in mind that these costs usually cover amenities, which may include internet, meeting rooms, kitchen facilities, reception services, AV equipment and parking.
Instant offer a great variety of office sizes, and are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more depending on the specifics.
Most centres in Kuala Lumpur still favour the traditional private serviced office spaces although there is a wide variety of sizes available on the market at present.
Coworking spaces do not appear to have caught on in Kuala Lumpur as much as other major cities as yet.
Why choose Kuala Lumpur?
Kuala Lumpur is the ideal location for companies, especially those involved in the service sector.
The high level of local and foreign banks and organisations that operate in the financial industry ensure that the city is a hub of activity for business in this area.
The city is home to a number of companies on the Forbes 2000 list and there have been recent attempts to grow the research and development scope of the city.
The financial benefits are also clear; Kualu Lumpur is still a major capital city in the region but office space is much cheaper than most comparative Asian cities.
Office prices are also cheaper now than they have been in recent years.
