Pavilion KL chief executive officer (retail section) Joyce Yap said there was a proposal to have Raffles Kuala Lumpur as part of the Pavilion KL integrated development that would enhance Pavilion Residences as the quintessential luxury address in the city. The 4-phase project with an award-winning shopping centre, 6-star residential apartments, a luxury boutique hotel, and a state of the art office tower reflects the group’s strife to excel in retail, hospitality, services and facilities.
