Enquiries start to build up
By KAMARUL YUNUS Published: 2012/09/19
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html



MENARA WAWASAN MERDEKA: Interest already covers over 60pc of lettable space, says source

THE proposed 100-storey Menara Wawasan Merdeka has received pre-booking enquiries for over 60 per cent of its lettable space, according to an industry source.

The source said about 30 per cent of the space is being reserved for its developer, Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), and several government- linked companies under PNB’s stable.

To be officially launched by year-end, the Menara Warisan Merdeka will cost RM2.5 billion to RM3 billion. It will have gross floor space of 3.0 million sq ft and 2.2 million sq ft of net floor space.

This will be followed by two subsequent phases comprising a shopping complex and condominiums. The whole development, to be undertaken over a 10-year period, will cost RM5 billion.

Last month, PNB announced that it had obtained the development order from Kuala Lumpur City Hall to build the 100-storey
Menara Warisan Merdeka, touted to be the country’s tallest building.

PNB president and chief executive officerTan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman was reported as saying recently that the development order was attached with several conditions, including those related to legal matters.

PNB is studying the terms in order to fulfil them and to ensure proper planning as the development order was approved with conditions, Hamad Kama had said.

To be located within the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara heritage area, the concept of the 100-storey building, its retail portion and the condominiums was mooted in early 2004 taking into account the need for enhancement of value and effective utilisation of the 7.6ha land adjacent to the two stadiums.

In 2005, the master plan was approved by the municipal authorities, followed by the issuance of final titles in 2008. The principal concept of PNB iconic building was then approved
in 2009.

Since then, PNB has set up a wholly-owned unit, PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, to undertake the project, with Tengku Abdul
Aziz Tengku Mahmud, formerly from Guthrie Property Development Holding Bhd and Sime Darby Property Bhd, taking the helm.

Once completed, the Menara Warisan Merdeka will be over 600 metres tall compared with Petronas Twin Towers at 453m; Burj Khalifa at 829m; and Taipei 101 at 509m.

Both the U.S. Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have a rebuttable presumption not to build any antennae (or structure) over 2,000 ft (610m) above ground level.

It was discussed on ssp some time ago (I think in Chicago spire thread) that building higher is well possible. It just requires special approvals from faa and also maybe from navy and some other institutions. At least I'm aware of experiments on space elevator involving building temporary structure one mile high made of ribbon suspended from the balloon and tethered to the ground. They plan to experiment with tethered ribbons high up to 30km and they say necessary permissions from faa, navy and others are not a problem.

Exactly. Central North America is flat, wide open and unpopulated. To get old style radio and TV signals to rural farmers, drivers, tractors, truckers and towns, a tall tower was necessary.

They just built them taller until the FAA and FCC put a stop to it and limited them to 2,000 imperial feet in an 'unwritten rule' after this was erected in 1963:

Quote:
Blanchard, Traill County, North Dakota, United States, used by Fargo station KVLY-TV channel 11. Completed in 1963.
There are other height restrictions in the USA. Washington DC has one of 110 feet, Heights of Buildings Act of 1910; Madison, Wisconsin, where no building located within one mile of the Wisconsin State Capitol may be higher than it, etc.

I have been on the roof of the Cairo Hotel/Condo in DC, btw. Had friends who lived there.

PNB 'excited' over interest in Menara Warisan Merdeka
By Kamarul Yunus Published: 2012/09/28
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...ispnb/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) is encouraged by companies' interest to locate their offices at the proposed 100-storey Menara Warisan Merdeka.

"It's true that there has been positive response from the companies. Most of them have expressed their interest to open up offices within the building. It's very exciting to see the high interest shown," PNB president and chief executive officer Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman said after announcing Amanah Saham 1Malaysia's income distribution yesterday.

Hamad Kama Piah was asked to update on the development of the proposed over 600m Menara Warisan Merdeka, touted to be the highest building in the country.

Last week, Business Times reported that the proposed Menara Warisan Merdeka had received pre-booking enquiries for over 60 per cent of its lettable space.

About 30 per cent of the space is being reserved for PNB and several government-link companies under its stable.

Hamad Kama Piah indicated that PNB group will occupy about 60 per cent of the building.

"Most of these companies are under PNB's group," he said, when asked to identify the companies that have shown interests to move into the building.

On the construction date of Menara Warisan Merdeka, Hamad Kama Piah said it had yet to be ascertained but "the preparation is almost there".

"Last month, I said that we have received the development order from City Hall, attached with several conditions.

"We are trying to fulfill these conditions as best as we can and as hopeful. We are also trying to make sure the launch will be in order," he said.

Scheduled to be officially launched by year-end, Menara Warisan Merdeka will cost between RM2.5 billion and RM3 billion.

It will have gross floor space of 3 million sq ft and a net floor space of 2.2 million.

This will be followed by two subsequent phases comprising a shopping complex and condominiums.

The whole development, to be undertaken over a 10-year period, will cost RM5 billion.

To be located within the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara heritage area, the concept of the 100-storey building, its retail portion and the condominiums was mooted in early 2004.

It took into account the need for enhancement of value and effective utilisation of the 7.6ha land adjacent to the two stadiums.
