Wisma Central is a commercial office building located right next to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers on Jalan Ampang. Residing within the city centre, this mature office building is surrounded by plenty of commercial buildings, high-end condominiums and amenities.
Wisma Central was built by esteemed developer Garden City Development in the 1980s. It was the first commercial property to receive strata-title in the office and shopping complex category in 1987, after its application in 1983.
Wisma Central is just within 500 meters away from Suria KLCC, which houses plenty of stores, clothing and apparel boutiques, cafes, cinema and restaurants. Within short driving distance, one can reach Sungai Wang Plaza, Pavilion KL, and Ampang Park Shopping Centre. Right opposite is Avenue K, one of new addition to KL shopping malls. Alternatively, you could walk a short distance to Jalan P Ramlee one of KL entertainment hub, where rows of night clubs are located.
Wisma Central is easily accessible via Jalan Ampang. The road is accessible from Ampang Elevated Highway and Jalan Tun Razak. Alternatively, one can reach the vicinity via KLCC and Ampang Park LRT station.
Despite being surrounded by modern and new commercial buildings, the facade of Wisma Central looks old and worn down. This old office complex was constructed long ago before there was KLCC, believed to be built in in the 1980s. Nevertheless, it is located at the most strategic and prime area of KLCC.
Directly next to Wisma Central is a piece of vacant land, which is said to be future Four Seasons Hotel and Residence. It seems like a big contrast to have one of the world’s most luxury hotel chains sitting next to an old and worn down building. Eventually, as land prices escalate in KLCC vicinity, it makes more sense for some to demolish the old building and build a new one to replace it. However, the building is a great national heritage and could be repaired and restored for better cultural value.
