Pudu Sentral known now as Kuala Lumpur UTC Building

KUALA LUMPUR -- Pudu Sentral, previously known as Puduraya, is to be known now as the Kuala Lumpur UTC Building after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak launched the Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) there today.

The four-storey building, which is the second UTC in the country after the first one in Melaka, houses 39 government departments and commercial offices, a youth development and activity centre, a local products sales area and an activity centre for non-governmental organisations.
Najib had launched the first UTC in Jalan Hang Tuah, Melaka, in June. That UTC houses 70 government agencies, commercial offices and NGO premises.

A UTC is a one-stop centre established by the government under the Urban Transformation Programme to facilitate access by the urban population to services provided by government agencies, commercial houses and NGOs under one roof.

An urban dweller can visit a UTC to, for example, attend to matters pertaining to taxes or tithes and identity card or engage in recreational activities such as wall climbing, aerobics or futsal.

In conjunction with the launch of the Kuala Lumpur UTC, the prime minister also launched a 1Malaysia Book Shop on the first floor of the building.

More than 10,000 people thronged the hitherto Pudu Sentral to witness the launch of the UTC.

Also present were Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin, Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah and Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib.

1. the bus services will continue to run its operations below, but majority of the traffic has been diverted to bandar tasik permaisuri terminal, and bukit jalil transit..

2. govt services counters are expected to drive anor form of traffic to this building between the old and new KL.. just like the pusat bandar damansara..

3. revival of plaza rakyat? abandoned since the 97-crisis along with wembley ind.. this project comprises 3 buildings, the then tallest opis tower @ 79-sty, and anor 2 blocks, 49-sty condo & 21-sty hotel respectively..

4. menara warisan merdeka is nearby, the new 100-sty building, will it take precedence with the impending plaza rakyat eyesore that needs more attention for its revival..?

5. puduraya bus station, being renamed as pudu "sentral".. the use of sentral is a more resolute transformation action.. as is, the plaza rakyat lrt station is already in operations..

think the idea is to incorporate the convenience of public transport to public services departments.. i think ppl will be forced to use the lrt coz of the carpark constraints.. only pockets of private land available for public carpark..

This bloody UTC launch caused massive traffic jams the 2-3 days prior to the launch. Agreed, they should tackle plaza rakyat b4 the menara warisan. The lrt station is named plaza rakyat but it is still dead till today ...

i'm more concern in terms of the sheer number of initiatives and projects launched by the federal government at this juncture of their term.

You still able to get Sri Emas Condo nearby at range of RM500PSF with rental returns of around 5-6%. Potential high capital appreciation once Plaza Rakyat, Merdeka Towers & BBCC are ready. I bought two units there in year 2011 at price tag of RM320PSF.
