IJM Corp Bhd’s wholly owned subsidiary, IJM Construction Sdn Bhd, accepted a award from Affin Bank Bhd for the construction of the proposed 47-storey office building in Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur worth RM505 million.
In a statement released yesterday, IJM noted the building, which is set to be Affin Bank’s headquarters, has a gross floor area of 76,600 sq m. The building, which will house a total of 605 car parking bays, will be built over a land area of 1.25 acres at the upcoming financial district, Tun Razak Exchange (TRX).
