Sentul Depot located at Sentul West, Kuala Lumpur was once the largest complex of railway workshops in Malaysia with a history dating back to 1905. Plans are in the pipeline to preserve this historical colonial brickwork complex with a long-term restoration and reuse plan, ultimately to transform Sentul Depot into a must-visit lifestyle destination of Kuala Lumpur, and revitalise the aging railway town as the destination of choice to live, work and play.
Sentul Depot is a continuation of YTL Land’s reuse and rejuvenation efforts in Sentul West since the early 2000s. The first was the transformation of a former 9-hole golf course into Sentul Park, hence the conservation of a rare green lung in Kuala Lumpur city. This was followed by the restoration of a century-old inoperative railway workshop nearby Sentul Park to become The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) in 2005, to support, cultivate and sustain the local arts community. Ultimately, the plan for Sentul Depot is to seamlessly link the depot with KLPAC and Sentul Park as one integrated lifestyle destination to serve the immediate vicinity of Sentul and the whole Kuala Lumpur city at large.
In the early 2000s, the YTL Group developed a master plan for the redevelopment of Sentul, once the hotbed of railway activity in the country, to be gradually transformed into an extensive commercial complex for the next generation – featuring respectful coexistence of smart-size workplaces, business hubs, coworking spaces, event galleries and more, complemented by vibrant hospitality outlets. Employing the philosophy of responsible urban revitalisation and regeneration, YTL Construction undertook the design, building and construction of a number of iconic residential, commercial and public spaces, all of which have contributed to renewed interest in this city centre address.
Sentul Works will potentially accommodate businesses seeking a major presence in a contemporary, unique environment that is responsive to a new workforce focused on flexibility, creativity, technology and collaboration. This is a game-changer and an exciting transformation is taking place soon.
Challenging the norms of stereotypical office spaces, d5 in Kuala Lumpur’s Sentul East commercial precinct is a unique working platform upon which the worlds of creativity, art, design and aesthetic consciousness all come together stylishly while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of commercial and retail architecture.

Beautiful rooftop gardens and decks also work to bring you that little bit closer to the heavens. Just as nature nurtures life, so does it too for work and inspiration.
Design is undoubtedly the driving force behind Sentul East’s attention-arresting d2. Clad in corten steel, the unique facade of this urban office space jostles for attention as its modernist lines and powerful structure make it a standout in heritage and culture-rich Sentul. Individual blocks are linked by terraces, courtyards and feature staircases, all of which are testament to IROJE Architects and Planners’s Korean brand of creativity. Although industrial in look and feel, there is also room for the healing and inspiring touch of nature, with ample spaces in which to breathe freely as well as restful nooks, thoughtfully placed by tranquil water features. With a patina that changes over time and a finish that design analysts dub as ‘distressed’, you will find yourself feeling anything but, when ensconced in d2’s uniquely creative embrace.
