the Main Stadium.
Offering 1,300 condominiums with full-facilities, the Games Village
comprises three tower blocks of 30 storeys and six hillside blocks of
19 storeys on a total area of 40 acres. In addition, there are three
clubhouses with complete recreational facilities. There is also a 30,000
sq metre shopping centre across the road, which during the games will be the International Zone.
Each unit comprises three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedrooms are
fully air-conditioned and the sitting hall is equipped with fans.
Officials will be accommodated on the basis of one per room while two
athletes will be assigned to a room.

The International Zone is located at the major shopping complex
just across the road. The shopping complex, approximately 100 m
x 60 m in dimension, offers five levels of shopping in addition
to two basement parking levels for over 380 cars. Also housed at
the shopping complex is the dining hall, medical and doping
control centre, sports information office, and all the other
International Zone requirements.
Travel is facilitated by the excellent and well-planned infrastructure
in the vicinity. The six-lane Shah Alam Expressway and
the six-lane North-South Highway linking Kuala Lumpur and Seremban Highway run next to the Village,
and there is also a Light Rail Transit (LRT) Station in the
Village to cater for transport to any part of the city.
The Kuala Lumpur 98 Games Village is scheduled for completion in March 1998.
