The Citadines brand is not only making headway in Penang, they are also expanding its footprint in Kuching, Sarawak.

This time around, another new skyscraper is set to adorn the skyline of Kuching’s city centre.

The Citadines Langit Kuching, a 27-storey tower will offer 213 contemporary accommodation units including studios, one, and two-bedroom residences. 

The new landmark will be strategically located on Jalan Tabuan, a thriving artery connecting to prime business hubs, tourist attractions, and retail havens, this property will not only redefine city living but will also boast Green Building Index (GBI) certification, standing proudly adjacent to a tower of private residential condominium units.

The venture is a collaboration of The Ascott Limited (Ascott), CapitaLand Investment Limited’s wholly owned lodging business unit and Neat Plan, the property division of Hock Seng Lee (HSL).

The genesis of HSL’s visionary Langit project emerged from a nationwide architectural competition in 2021, culminating in the collaborative venture of Citadines Langit Kuching by HSL and Ascott. 

It is designed to elevate tourism and upscale living in East Malaysia, the project aims to spotlight the charm of Kuching on the global stage, capitalizing on the surge in inbound travel demand.

“We are privileged to embark on this groundbreaking venture with HSL. Renowned for their innovative prowess in construction, HSL’s vision for Project Langit resonated with us from the onset. 

“Citadines Langit Kuching stands as a pinnacle project in our regional portfolio. With Sarawak’s promising tourism outlook, this venture exemplifies our dedication to delivering unparalleled urban living experiences, inspiring guests to embrace life’s infinite possibilities,” said Mondi Mecja, Country General Manager, Malaysia, Ascott.

Scheduled to break ground in 2024, with completion anticipated within three years, Citadines Langit Kuching promises a host of state-of-the-art amenities and technologies. From a luxurious clubhouse to an inviting infinity pool, premium commercial spaces, and recreational facilities, this 

development is poised to redefine the standards of contemporary living.

Furthermore, Citadines Langit Kuching will incorporate sustainable design elements, aligning seamlessly with the Sarawak Government’s stringent guidelines for tall commercial complexes.
