Explore KLSP2040’s urban renewal plan for Kuala Lumpur. 139 redevelopment zones unveiled, including Federal Cable, Jalan Berangan, Jalan Raja Bot, ensuring a vibrant transformation until 2040.
KUALA LUMPUR, 14 Nov 2023 – In a significant urban development initiative, Kuala Lumpur is set to undergo a transformation with the identification of 139 areas earmarked for redevelopment by the year 2040, outlined in the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2040 (KLSP2040), succeeding the KLSP2020.
The KLSP2040 places a strong emphasis on the redevelopment of brownfield areas, aging industrial zones, and locations influenced by investments in transit infrastructure and river conservation. This forward-looking strategy aims to convert these spaces into economically viable and appealing environments within the capital city.
A notable feature of the plan is the intensified redevelopment around transit zones, with a particular focus on seamless integration with the surroundings. Specifically, areas like Federal Cable, Jalan Berangan, Jalan Kenanga, Jalan Tiong Nam, Jalan Haji Taib, Jalan Alor, Jalan Raja Bot, Jalan Rahmat, Jalan Melayu-Jalan Masjid India, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Petaling, Jalan Inai, Jalan Maharajalela, and Jalan Talalla are identified as prime zones for mixed-use development to create a more integrated urban environment.
Brownfield redevelopment targets encompass old public and private housing, markets, trading premises, food courts, as well as residential, industrial, and commercial areas. The overarching goal is to foster sustainable and livable development in these spaces.
The KLSP2040 promotes detailed design plans for buildings, aiming to establish a more integrated, inclusive, and low-carbon built environment. Recognizing the need to rejuvenate old cities and structures, the plan advocates for fresh investments to reactivate both the areas and functionalities of existing structures, ultimately reducing development pressure and preserving unique social, environmental, and historical values.
Several areas, including Medan Pasar, Jalan Tangsi, Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, and Pasar Sungai Besi are identified as having the potential for revitalization.
Gazetted on October 19, 2023, the KLSP2040 serves as a comprehensive framework guiding the future development of Kuala Lumpur until 2040, signaling a transformative strategy for sustainable urban revitalization.
