Bukit Bintang City Centre (BBCC) is a new urban development in central Kuala Lumpur. This mixed use project includes residential towers, hotels, retail and entertainment spaces, and a transit hub. There are gardens and other open spaces, and the site will include a signature landmark tower.
The 19.4-acre property is at the site of the old Pudu Prison. The prison was built by the British colonial government in 1895, and was closed in 2009. The complex was completely demolished by 2012, with only the Victorian-era gate left as a reminder of its past. Here are more photos of the Pudu Prison.
