Mid Valley City is a large mixed development in the Lembah Pantai ward in southwestern Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The development consists of The Gardens shopping mall , Mid Valley Megamall and 3 hotels , namely the Cititel Mid Valley, The Boulevard Hotel Kuala Lumpur and the Gardens Hotels and Residences.

Background[edit]

When it was planned in the late 1980s, it was initially named Bandar Syed Putra, named after Jalan Syed Putra Jkr-ft2.png that runs through the southern flank of the development. The site that was selected for the development was formerly occupied by an abattoir.

Accessibility[edit]

It is accessible by both road and rail transport. Rail transport is served directly by KTM Komuter via Mid Valley Komuter station while indirectly by RapidKL railway system via Bangsar LRT station and Abdullah Hukum LRT station. The KTM station connects directly with the Mid Valley Megamall. According to its corporate website, the company is trying to secure permission to build a bridge connecting The Garden shopping mall to the LRT station, improving accessibility between the buildings. Nevertheless, Abdullah Hukum station is a 900 metre walk from Mid Valley City, going through the adjacent KL Eco City development project. Mid Valley City is a stop for RapidKL buses routes leading here such as 822, T788 and T817.

MSC Status[edit]

Mid Valley City has been awarded MSC Malaysia Cyber Center status since 22 September 2008. Offices in the development offer competitive date center rates and high-speed broadband access.[1]
