The ERA is a mixed commercial development designed to rejuvenate the industrial neighbourhood along the Jalan Segambut area in Kuala Lumpur.
The project consists of two main components arranged in two curves. On one plot, there are six blocks of serviced apartments—ranging from 53 to 63 storeys—atop a seven-storey carpark and retail podium. On another plot, there are three blocks—of 13 to 19 storeys—of retail units and office suites.
The podium also houses a five-acre landscaped facilities deck with expansive greenery and vertical gardens, creating an urban oasis in the midst of the industrial jungle.
The three-storey retail area is interconnected with a vibrant 800-metre-long retail pedestrian boulevard. Designed with a commercial streetscape and surrounded by greens, the boulevard features meandering terraces of shops with al fresco dining.
