The Sphere Bangsar South

Bangsar South is not indirectly within the same neighbourhood of the hip and happening Bangsar! It's not even Bangsar's 'next-door' neighbour. Bangsar South and Bangsar were actually separated by Bukit Pantai and the Federal Highway. It is actually located within the vicinity of former squarters area known as Kampung Kerinchi and closeby to International Broadcasting Centre-Angkasapuri.
I believe renaming the area as Bangsar South is part of rebranding process which need to be done in order to increase the sale-value of the area. I guess, there isnt any commercial benefit having to be associated with a slump-squarters area eventhough Kampung Kerinchi started as the earliest residential village in Kuala Lumpur along with Kampung Abdullah Hukum and Kampung Baru.
