Other than its prime location, 348 Sentral is a step forward as it is a project that places emphasis on energy saving and sustainable building. It will actually be Malaysia’s first green office development, which is a sign of improvement in our local development scene.
Features at 348 Central include a Thermal Energy Storage System, which will use rain water and the environment’s temperature to regulate the internal temperature of the building. Other green features include a park within its ground.

Although some may be wary of 348 Sentral being developed by a local company, they may be pleased to know that this is a joint venture with MRBC. Early investors should not worry about being stuck with an incomplete building with such reliable company in charge.
