The Ascent Paradigm Offices 50% taken up

The Ascent Paradigm by WCT Holdings Bhd (WCT), which opened in the third quarter of last year, has seen half of its 504,084 sq ft total net lettable area taken up.

According to WCT Holdings managing director Taing Kin Hwa, The Ascent Paradigm is a Grade-A 32-floor corporate tower located on Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP), and in the mature Selangor suburb of Kelana Jaya. It is part of the RM1.8 billion Paradigm Integrated Commercial Development.

“The Ascent Paradigm has been designed and developed to meet the needs of today’s fast-growing and dynamic businesses. Its prime location with easy access to expressway, amenities and public transport is also a significant appeal factor for corporations and businesses that are operating in the Klang Valley and beyond,” said Taing in a press statement.

Tenants include DKSH Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Chr Hansen Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Keyence (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and American based pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

“This MSC-status office building features a column-free layout to maximise efficiency and flexibility for its tenants. It is ideal for the companies in financial, insurance and real estate business,” Taing said.

The Ascent is divided into high and low zones, and units are available for rental only.

Each lettable unit is between 5,000 sq ft and 18,000 sq ft and is priced at approximately RM5.50 psf, excluding Goods and Services Tax.

The Ascent Paradigm is also WCT’s new headquarters. It has taken up three levels, or approximately 46,000 sq ft of net lettable area in the tower, since the last quarter.

“WCT Group will be celebrating its 35th Anniversary in 2016. As such, it is both timely and appropriate for our group to move its headquarters into a world-class and advanced corporate tower. The Ascent Paradigm will be able to facilitate WCT’s further growth and success while providing our team with a cutting-edge corporate lifestyle environment,” said Taing.

In addition to The Ascent, WCT’s Paradigm Integrated Commercial Development is made up of Paradigm Mall, New World Petaling Jaya Hotel and The Azure Serviced Residences, providing an ‘integrated work-and-lifestyle environment’. - The Edge Property
