Sunway Property has received MSC Cybercentre status from Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) for its Sunway Velocity and Sunway Velocity TWO developments, making it the first Cybercentre in Cheras.
The MSC Cybercentre status is awarded to city, townships, or large building complexes for providing dedicated and specialised industry areas for MSC- status companies or Information and Communications Technology (ICT)-facilitated businesses to locate their operations.
Sunway Property’s flagship township, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur is Sunway Property’s first MSC-status township and Malaysia Digital Hub and currently houses thousands of businesses including multinational corporations which are leveraging the talent pool and research capabilities of the universities within the vicinity including Sunway University as well as the network and expertise of its incubator, Sunway Innovation Labs (Sunway iLabs).
Sunway City Kuala Lumpur currently functions as a “living lab” where businesses, academia, students and researchers are working together to test-bed solutions.
“Sunway Velocity is an ideal growth venue for information and communication technology (ICT) companies. Businesses here will also have full lifestyle support, such as the 1 million square feet Sunway Velocity Mall, Sunway Medical Centre and Hotel as well as a two-acre park,” Sunway Berhad’s Property Development Division Central Region Executive Director, Chong Sau Min said.
Currently, Sunway Property is setting up a one-stop centre cybermanagement office which will run an incubator to nurture entrepreneurs, provide business development programmes, and act as a customer service centre for businesses within Sunway Velocity.
Once completed, business communities will be assisted to collaborate with institutions of higher learning around the area with focus on developing artificial intelligence solutions for healthcare in collaboration with Sunway Medical Centre Velocity.
The designated MSC premises also offers an extensive range of facilities and amenities such as meeting rooms, function hall and boutique gymnasium for tenant’s usage. Ample car parks are also available within the MSC Malaysia Cybercentre with four levels of basement car park and over 6,000 car park bays.
Sunway Property is also planning to turn its next proposed corporate office tower located within the Sunway Velocity TWO development with a net lettable area of 360,000 sq ft into a designated building. The tower is currently under construction and is target to be completed by Q2 2022.
