In a few months time, Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAHB), the operator of the KL International Airport (KLIA) will announce a major transformation plan for KLIA.
KLIA will embark on extensive property development, transforming the airport into a remarkable mixed-use of commercial, tourism and transportation hub called (tentatively) the “AEROPOLIS KLIA“.
The mega-project will be developed around the existing airport on 2,730 acres of land. With this, KLIA will be transformed to be more than just an airport!
It will be an international meeting place which includes business parks, logistic parks, industrial estates and “free zones”, retail centres and merchandise marts, ICT complexes, hotels, a theme park, tourism and entertainment centres and an airport residential neighbourhood.

Contrast the above plan with the below that was shown at the recent LIMA 2007 aerospace show.

This is how KLIA (and Sepang F1 Circuit) looks like today from the air…
And imagine when the whole KLIA gets built-up!
