If by region you mean SE Asia then they would easily break that record without the spire.

Signature Tower too will have one tall spire.. are you sure by roof height, according to current plan Signature Tower will be taller than Warisan Merdeka?

Wonder why Singapore or Hong Kong is not coming out with super tall building. They are more than capable financially. They really should make in the race of height !!

Because it doesn't make sense economically?
If I'm correct, SIngapore has height restrictions due to its airport also.

There is also a height limit in place in Hong Kong as well or so I read.

Agreed , I'll put some money on the Malaysian propsoal being built before the Indonesian one. For my money the title of the tallest in SE Asia will not leave Malaysia soon.
