However, it turns out that TM the company does not actually own Menara TM the building.

The Menara TM

In fact, in a press statement, TM clarified the situation, noting that TM is merely a long-term tenant of Menara TM and not the owner.

The owner of Menara TM is actually Menara ABS Bhd, which is the party behind the sale of Menara TM.

As for why Menara TM is named after its tenant and not its owner, it turns out that it’s pretty common for key clients to have naming rights during their lease.

For example, Menara Standard Chartered (MSC) is named for its key tenant, Standard Chartered Bank, but the bank does not own the building and instead rents it together with other companies.

Telekom Malaysia DOES Have Their Own Property

Telekom Malaysia does own property of their own. The company has noted that they are in the process of relocating their corporate offices to their own buildings, including TM Annexe 1 and TM Annexe 2 as well as their properties in Cyberjaya.
