Four Seasons Place Kuala Lumpur, also known as Four Seasons KLCC and FSP KLCC Tower, is a 74-story, 342.5-metre tall (1,124 ft) supertall skyscraper in Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Malaysia. It features a 21 m (69 ft) high crown made out of steel at the top of the tower, making the tower reaches the height of 342.5 m (1,124 ft).

Shoppes at Four Seasons Place

The hotel includes an atrium mall known as Shoppes at Four Seasons Place, also known as Shoppes @ Four Seasons Place KL, located at the ground levels. It is a luxury retail mall which is connected to the building itself and takes up six levels of the tower. [4] Its sister mall is located at the Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip under the name of "Shoppes at Four Seasons". Recently in October 2020, the Robinsons announced that they will be closing their department store at the mall along with its outlet in The Gardens Mall located at Mid Valley City. [5]

Launch

This project which is the first-ever Four Seasons Place in South East Asia, was launched by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak on 30 January 2013. This event was also accompanied by the Chairman of Venus Assets, Tan Sri Syed Yusof, and witnessed by Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah. The project was completed in 2018. [6]

Criticism

The hotel's design and the location were criticised for blocking the view of the national icon, the Petronas Towers. The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) President KL Tan said in an interview to Channel NewsAsia. "Our Twin Towers are an iconic tourist attraction - they should not be blocked at all. Tourists want to have a nice view and take photos of the twin towers, once the tallest buildings in the world." To defend against this criticism, the then Malaysia's Minister of Tourism and Culture, Nazri Aziz said that "There are those who are willing to pay to stay in such hotels and there would be tourists who would visit a place just to stay in such a hotel." [7]

Transportation access

The building is served by the  KJ10  KLCC LRT station on Kelana Jaya Line and the  PY21  Persiaran KLCC MRT station on Putrajaya Line. Both stations are within a radius of one kilometre.
