UEM Sunrise managing director and CEO, Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib, said the company was delighted with the finished result of its flagship Australian project.
“UEM Sunrise is very proud to have delivered such a high-quality, landmark building in the heart of Melbourne that successfully offers thousands of residents, workers and visitors unparalleled convenience and connectivity.,” he said.
“It will be rewarding to see the Aurora and CBD community make use of this world-class building and take full advantage of its direct connection to neighbouring amenities.”
