KUALA LUMPUR (July 17): S P Setia Bhd’s KL Eco City (KLEC) has won the Gold Award of FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence 2020 Awards in the Office category, making it the developer’s 12th FIABCI World Gold award.
The announcement by FIABCI World was made virtually last night. The award was on the back of S P Setia’s Setia EcoHill 2 winning the EdgeProp-ILAM Malaysia’s Sustainable Landscape Award 2020 Gold at EdgeProp Malaysia’s Best Managed and Sustainable Property Awards 2020.
KLEC is a transport-oriented integrated green development located strategically between Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur.

It comprises prime commercial offices, retail outlets, luxury residential towers and a chic business class hotel.
S P Setia Bhd President and CEO Datuk Khor Chap Jen said the 12th FIABCI World Gold award won by the company is a proud moment for the whole team. “This win commemorates S P Setia as the only property developer in Malaysia to have achieved this feat. We are elated to solidify once again our position as the top property developer in Malaysia through our top-notch award-winning projects. It is a great occasion for Team Setia as we have worked tirelessly to deliver on our promises.”
He added that the award would reaffirm S P Setia’s efforts in delivering innovation and quality in property development, on top of distinguishing KLEC from its competitor.
“Our vision for KLEC was to create a world-standard, mixed-use development with excellent interconnectivity that will attract many to ‘livelearnworkplay’ in this city-within-a-city. The development is set to raise the bar on corporate, boutique and strata offices; empowering people through smart connectivity, cutting-edge technology and environmental-consciousness,” Khor said.
