while we were excited about this tower...there are some jokers talking too much..but my humble opinion is..JUST IGNORE THEM..AND BUILT IT FAST

Quote:
PETALING JAYA (July 7, 2013): Owners of properties next to the proposed 118-storey Warisan Merdeka project are concerned about the likely impact of the project on their properties, many of which are heritage sites.
This is on top of the worry that they may have to relinquish parts of their land to make way for the construction of Kuala Lumpur's tallest commercial building.
The RM5 billion project by Permodalan Nasional Bnd (PNB) may be seen as breathing new life into the historic Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara area, but because it is to be developed on a piece of land that had been gazetted as People's Reserved Land, it has not only angered the public but also raised concerns among owners of adjacent properties.
Among the many who submitted their written objections against the commencement of the project are property owners who are concerned about the direct impact of the project on their buildings, including those presented with the National Heritage Site plaque.
Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall chief executive officer Tang Ah Chai wants to know how such a big project is able to complement its surrounding heritage facades.
"According to the National Heritage Act 2005, any new property that is built near a heritage site should be harmonious in character, appearance, height, historical and cultural continuity.
"No matter from which angle you look at it, it looks impossible for it (Warisan Merdeka) to fulfil this provision of the Act," said Tang.
Chin Woo Athletic Association Kuala Lumpur and Selangor (Stadium) president Datuk Lim Chee Shin said: "During the four to five-year building period, construction activities will definitely draw people away from the stadium. We have estimated that it would cost us RM3-4 million in loss revenue."
Meanwhile, Thay Peng Kee, secretary-general of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur Hokkien Association, which owns the 100-year-old Wei Ting Keong Kuan Yin Temple, said: "We fear the temple's structure may not be able to withstand the massive building activities. The temple's foundation may also be adversely affected."
Heritage property owners urged Warisan Merdeka developers to do a thorough study and take preventive measures to prevent permanent damage to the surrounding iconic and historical sites

Warisan Merdeka project may start in under three months, says PNB

By Ida Lim
July 09, 2013 - The Malay Mail

PETALING JAYA, July 9 — Work on the controversial Warisan Merdeka project could begin in less than three months even as fears remain over its impact on the Kuala Lumpur heritage zone, local dailies have reported.

Amid renewed opposition to the project, Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) has said that it is in the final stages of getting the authorities’ approval for the development that includes a 118-storey tower in the historical Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara area.

Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman, PNB president and group chief executive officer, yesterday expressed hope of moving ahead with the project, which had sparked off a debate when it was announced by the prime minister in October 2010.

“We have to wait for green light from DBKL before starting (this project).

“But we think this project can be started in two, three months,” Hamad was quoted as saying by Utusan Malaysia.

The Business Times reported that the developer needed to fulfil a few conditions in Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) Development Order (DO) before the latter can give the go-ahead for the project, said to cost RM5 billion.

It cited Hamad as saying some of the conditions include the access roads and routes in the project area.

Another local paper reported Hamad as saying that PNB is working to ensure that the Warisan Merdeka project meets the conditions in DBKL’s DO.

“The studies about the orders that are in the DO are almost ready to be submitted to DBKL for approval,” Hamad was reported as saying by Berita Harian.

Last Monday, Pertahankan Taman Merdeka Negara (PTMN) protested as it noted that the developer’s planning application for Warisan Merdeka would convert the status of the project site — where Stadium Merdeka, Stadium Negara and Tunku Park sit on — into land for commercial use.

A day after PTMN’s protest, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said Warisan Merdeka would bring new life into the “dead” heritage area in the city centre. He also gave his assurance that the heritage value of the area will be kept intact.

“As far as we are concerned, development is development but the heritage, aesthetic value of surrounding place will definitely be kept for sure, don’t have to worry,” Tengku Adnan had said.

DBKL had last month given neighbouring landowners a two-week notice to send in their written objections on the Warisan Merdeka project, with the objection period ending on July 2.

DBKL officers had told The Malay Mail Online that written objections would result in a hearing involving the developer and objecting landowners, with the development application then going back to a One-Stop Centre meeting for DBKL and the city mayor’s decision.

Government-linked firm PNB had said the project would not be built using taxpayers’ money. It had formed a wholly-owned unit, PNB Merdeka Ventures, to carry out the project.

The project — which will include a 118-storey tower, a four-star hotel and two blocks of 40-storey condominiums — will see Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara being kept as heritage sites. It will also be the tallest structure in the country once completed, eclipsing the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.
