Being centrally located in the “Golden Triangle” of the city, the residents of Menara Pinang suffer massive traffic congestion every day and night. The road is crowded with vehicles from morning till evening every single day as people commute to work in the morning and evening during weekdays; party at the club row in Jalan P Ramlee every night; and go shopping and leisure around town during weekends. Hence, Jalan Pinang and Jalan Kia Peng are both among the busiest road in Kuala Lumpur.
Besides traffic congestion, the air is not very healthy for living as well. This is due to a number of construction works in the vicinity and gas emission by the vehicles passing by. One of current construction works is the 40-storey Glomac Tower, which located on the corner of Jalan Pinang and Jalan P Ramlee. Not only that, there are also construction works of 59-storey office tower and 14-storey office tower along Jalan Perak.
Despite of all the drawbacks, Menara Pinang wins for its strategic location. Residents can access to the best amenities in the city within short walking distance. Where else can you find a place where you can walk to work, shop, jog and party?
