Alot of people have been asking me to share something about the new Kuala Lumpur International Financial District.
All I have is to show you the below pictures for now.

Well, the new Kuala Lumpur, or rather KLIFD (sometimes called 1Malaysia Financial Centre) is a RM26 billion project that will be built from the middle of next year (2011), as reported in the media recently.
Secondly, this project is often mistaken with the proposed development of Sg. Besi Airport, which was also envisioned to become another Financial Centre, or rather an Islamic Financial Centre.
I say KLIFD is not Sg. Besi.
This project is situated on a 34.4 hectares of land near Jalan Tun Razak and Bulatan Pandan (SMART Tunnel).
This project is being developed by 1Malaysia Development Board, undeniably which has some links to Jho Low, the young chap who partied with Paris Hilton, etc.
the location of the megaproject
In fact, KLIFD is not something new to us. The development was previously known as "Dataran Perdana" which is synonymous with the development of Pudu's Pasarakyat Bus Terminal.
Finally, I was told that two lines of the proposed MRT for Greater KL will inter-changed at this new urban area. And I read somewhere someone suggested Bursa Malaysia to move its office to here. LOL
