Excited about what the future holds for the project, Joanne Kua, CEO of KSK Group and Managing Director of KSK Land said: “We are proud and thankful to have braved through the pandemic and arrived at this important milestone for 8 Conlay without any major accidents or injuries. While the past year was indeed challenging, we observed that there is in fact stronger interest in the local market for branded residences like YOO8 compared to pre-COVID times, while the international market remains engaged. Based on a recent global buyer study[1], there are now more buyers seeking hotel-integrated residences for their branded services and amenities, high-yield potential and quality property management. As international borders begin to reopen, we look forward to welcoming visitors who are enthusiastic about owning a branded residence to our sales gallery.”


Joanne also expressed her gratitude to the project’s main contractor, Grand Dynamic Builders; hospitality and design partners – Kempinski and YOO; architectural concept and design partner – Ar. Hud Bakar of RSP Architects KL; as well as YOO8 homeowners for their continued trust and patience. She also expressed her appreciation to the internal team at KSK Land for their relentless support during these tough times.


Located on nearly four acres of freehold land at the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, 8 Conlay encompasses three skyline-enhancing towers, which features the world’s tallest twisted twin residential towers the YOO8 serviced by Kempinski branded residences, with interiors designed by Steve Leung & YOO (Tower A) and Kelly Hoppen for YOO (Tower B); the first and only five-star Kempinski Hotel in Malaysia; and four-storeys worth of experiential lifestyle retail quarters. Following the structural completion of the project’s first branded residential tower, KSK Land will be pushing forward with plans for its handover by the end of 2022 and the second  tower (“Tower B”) by mid-2023.
