Najib defends 100-storey KL tower

KUALA LUMPUR - MALAYSIA'S prime minister has defended a plan to construct a US$1.6 billion (S$2.1 billion), 100-story tower in Kuala Lumpur, saying it will contribute to long-term development of the city.

However, Premier Najib Razak says the project's owners must first ensure the building is 'financially viable' and will provide economic opportunities.

Mr Najib told reporters on Tuesday that 'it is a long-term project for 10 years and beyond, not for one or two years.'

Critics have slammed the privately financed project in downtown Kuala Lumpur as an unnecessary extravagance at a time of belt-tightening and rising prices.

Even former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who presided over several massive infrastructure projects during his time in office, has been critical. -- AP

Indicators positive for Malaysia’s economy
By SHARIDAN M. ALI Tuesday March 8, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=580

Strong growth in stock market and rally in commodity prices
KUALA LUMPUR: Strong growth in the stock market and the rally in commodity prices should augur well for the country's economy this year, said Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) chief executive officer and director Datuk Michael Yeoh.

He said the country's gross domestic product was expected to grow at 6% due to the prices of crude palm oil and rubber as well as the recovery in the export sector.

“More important, Bursa Malaysia is showing strong, resilient growth where it has crossed historical highs in January. This could create a wealth effect on the economy.

“The bourse slid in February possibly due a short-term external impact and the crisis in the Middle East.

“Driven by strong domestic consumption, commodities export and increase in foreign participation, there's a strong possibility that we could reach the 1,700-point level by year-end. Also by year-end, it's not impossible that foreign investors' participation in our local stock market will increase to between 30% and 40% from the current 25%,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the Greater KL: smart city of the future conference organised by Asli and IBM yesterday.

But the more worrisome factor would be the level of inflation which was brought on by the increase in oil, transport and food prices.

“Inflation will likely grow more than the current level of 3% this year,” he said.

Yeoh stressed that if oil prices remained above US$100 per barrel for more than three months, the Government might have to consider increasing the consumer oil price.

“This is despite its commitment to retain RON 95 at the current price. But, if the Government does not want to increase the level of oil subsidy, it will have to increase the oil price,” he said.

Yeoh said the current high oil prices could be temporary due to the crisis in Libya and the Middle East.

“There's a posibility that prices will drop if the crisis is resolved,” he said.

On Greater KL, Yeoh said the projects planned were comprehensive but he hoped the Government would conduct more regular open dialogues with the stakeholders for transparency.

“The stakeholders, the public and business community, must know the process of implementing these projects for greater transparency. People should know what is in store for them arising from these projects as their input could help enhance the implementation of these projects,” he said.

It is reported that an estimated RM172bil would be required over the next 10 years to ensure the success of Greater KL to make it one of the top 20 cities in the world.

The Greater KL project included the 100-storey Warisan Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur International Financial District, mass rapid transit system as well as revitalisation of rivers and waterfront in Selangor.

IBM Singapore Pte Ltd director (government & education, healthcare & life sciences and growth market unit) Madhav Ragam said the time was right for Malaysia to move towards Greater KL as it could learn from others' knowledge and experiences in growing a city.

“IBM has been part of this development elsewhere and is looking forward to its participation in Greater KL here,” he said.

Speakers give views on KL smart city
2011/03/09 Reports by Noel Achariam
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/4att/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: How would building iconic projects benefit Kuala Lumpur in its journey to become a world class metropolis?

This was one of the key discussions at the Greater KL Smart City of the Future conference held in Kuala Lumpur recently.

Under the Greater KL initiative is the building of the 100-storey Warisan Merdeka by PNB, the development of the Kuala Lumpur International Financial District, the proposed Kajang-Sungai Buloh mass rapid transit (MRT) line as well as the revitalisation of rivers and waterfronts. These projects have generated a lot of interest and brickbats.

Datuk Eddy Chen of Metrokajang Group, who was moderating at the conference, said he backed the Warisan Merdeka project.

"I'm all for the Warisan Merdeka project. A lot of people had objected to the building of KLCC Petronas Twin Towers but today it is an icon not only for the city, but it is recognised all over the world.

"Those who objected are now bringing their family, friends and visitors to shop, dine and even to relax at the park there."

Chen added that if the project kicks off, the government should look into upgrading the surrounding environment, too.

"There are low-cost flats and a cemetery there. These places should be upgraded too. We don't want the tenants looking at a dilapidated environment," he said.

Speaker Ho Chin Soon, managing director of Ho Chin Soon Reserach Sdn Bhd, said some quarters feared that the building would not enjoy full occupancy.

"Where there is supply, there will be demand. In the long run, it will take care of itself," he said.

Ho said Warisan Merdeka must be connected by MRT and an integrated public transport.

"There must be a MRT line running through here and the Warisan Merdeka should be linked to Bukit Bintang. The place needs to be accessible for the business community and the public," he said.

Zerin Properties chief executive officer Previndran Singhe said when the Petronas Twin Towers was completed in 1998, KL became an "Alpha" city like New York and Hong Kong.

"What the Alpha cities share are iconic buildings and KL has its fair share of them. For example, there is the Sultan Abdul Samad building, Petronas Twin Towers, Menara Maybank and Dayabumi.

"Every time we have an iconic building, it takes our city to greater heights. KL needs a growth impetus and having an iconic building like the Warisan Merdeka will enhance this," he said.

Previndran said the Warisan Merdeka doesn't have to be a complete business building.

He said 25 storeys could be for business, 25 storeys turned into a hotel, 25 storeys for retail and another 25 stories for residential use.

Previndran said the Greater KL plan is good, but they should all strive for a greater planned KL.

Another hotly discussed topic was the "Urban Connectivity-MRT and High Speed Rail Links: Moving Forward".

The speakers generally agreed that building of a MRT system will enhance the intra-city connectivity while plans for high-speed rail links to Singapore will accelerate regional connectivity.

Mag Technical and Development Consultants Sdn Bhd director Goh Bok Yen said the whole undertaking of the MRT project in the Greater KL plan must be interconnected strategically.

"We must have the MRT at the right place, time and location. We have heard residents protesting against the line running through their neighbourhoods and some have asked to incorporate buses in their area.

"This might be the voices of the affluent but what about the low-income earners who want the line in their areas? There are also residents who are calling for the line to run underground in certain areas.

"Where there is demand, they should put the lines there. They should also look into areas that are densely populated. We also have to look at strategic locations.

"For example, the area around Plaza Phoenix in Cheras is densely populated and an MRT station there will be useful for the residents. The authorities have to get the projection right. If not, there will be complications in the future," he said.

Goh also said that the MRT will not work if there is no proper feeder service and park and ride facilities at the stations.

"The MRT, buses and taxis must come together or the system will not work," he said.

Public Land Transport Commission chief development officer Azmi Abdul Aziz said that he will look into the issue of some parties wanting the MRT line to run underground.

"If we can, we would like to emulate other cities and run the MRT underground. However, in optimising costs, we need to look at the areas where we can implement the elevated and underground lines."

Conference participant, KL police chief Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah, said that security is another vital element of the development of a Greater KL.

"Security has always been an afterthought in previous developments. It is important for the police to participate and give their input on any security issues that is related to development. What is important is having a liveable city which is safe for everyone," he said.

All the issues discussed at the conference will be submitted to Performance Management Delivery Unit.

Design Work On Warisan Merdeka To Be Complete By Year End
August 19, 2011 21:45 PM
http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v5/ne....php?id=609297

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 19 (Bernama) -- The design works for the 100-storey Menara Warisan Merdeka is expected to be completed by end of this year, says Permodalan Nasional Bhd.

PNB President and Group Chief Executive, Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman said discussions on the design for the landmark project had taken a long time as they had taken a comprehensive view of the project.

"We have to see not only in terms of a 100-storey building but also the entire infrastructure, the roads and utilities," he told reporters following the announcement of dividend for the Amanah Saham Wawasan 2020 trust fund, here.

The integrated development project, worth RM5 billion and to be built by PNB, will be located close to the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara in the city.

Its completion is expected in 2015.

The plan for the project, to be developed over three phases, was announced during the 2011 Budget presentation by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak last year.

I think the idea is that things will start to develop in the area surrounding where the tower will be. Like some of the articles said, it's a long-term plan.
