meh.. only Indonesians are so excited about surpassing Petronas Towers, I didn't sense the same excitement coming from the Taiwanese when they erected Taipei 101. Indonesian national broadcasts, web portals and businessmen repeatedly boast about "new tallest tower in Jakarta will defeat Malaysia's Petronas" bla bla bla. I find the nagging behaviour rather annoying to be honest. In Malaysia, Warisan Merdeka is facing a lot of resistance from local community - labelled as wastage of public fund, robbing KL green lungs, destroying national heritage etc2.

I think Jakartans better make cities like Shanghai or Dubai as benchmark, as their cities are far better than KL (though maybe not so much livability on Shanghai's side). Please don't make the good old Petronas Towers sticking out over a mediocre skyline like KL in a smallish country like Malaysia the benchmark for the 4th most populous country in the world. KL, a city of only around 1.8 million inhabitants is just not up to par with Jakarta, home of almost 14 million people (half of Malaysian population). Indonesia itself is also a member of the mighty G20 elite grouping and a trillion dollar economy, leaving Malaysia in the dust. So please take good care of Indonesia's image, compare and compete with other large nations like US, China, India and Brazil. Those countries should be apple to apple to Indonesia, not third-tier economy like Malaysia.

Petronas Towers are so 1998, Burj Khalifa is 'D' hip of the moment, and Kingdom Tower is the future. Feeling so excited over topping your immediate next door neighbor, do we live in such a narrow world?

By right Jakarta should do better and I wish Jakartans good luck.

Similar story with monorail line. I remember when Jakarta Monorail got approved, some Indonesian trolls ("some" only yeah, I'm not generalizing) bombarded many portals featuring KL Monorail be it Youtube, some random rail blogs and even here in Skyscrapercity, saying KL Monorail is "so short" "very small" "built by foreigners" "poor technology" "loss-making" bla bla bla while the up and coming Jakarta Monorail are "longer" "spacious" "modern" "100% made by Indonesian princes & princesses" and all the good things..

What striked me the most was that these people shamelessly already boasting about things that had not yet happen (not even preparatory site clearance), things that they didn't have, and already insulting Malaysian-made technology that had been running for over a decade and currently being upgraded. What they didn't know was that Scomi Rail was a 100% Malaysian company and their technology was built by 100% Malaysian team. While they were insulting, we were already exporting our rail technology to cities in India and Brazil. Latest news Scomi beat Hitachi to deliver Sao Paulo Monorail Line 17 Gold (while another line was awarded to Bombardier).

some of them,their attitude it just annoying... they really loves to downgrades others but they forget they are left behind in many ways. they just loves to accused and talk something that is untrue and i have read in their thread, one of their forumer said that petronas twin tower occupancy rates is below half and that is 2, 3 years ago.... if it true petronas is not fully occupied, why petronas build menara petronas 3? the good thing is we are now much better than them because in 6 years or less, if anything goes well, we will become a developed country leaving them...

Nahh, you are being annoying as well. Agree? No?

About Warisan Merdeka, it surely tall. But IMHO, it looks a bit awkward, esp the top part.

Welcome to 2014 when people are free to express their opinions, Bro ...
And I don't get troubled when you say Signature Tower isn't nice, it's ur opinion anyway. Just be responsible with it.

Enough with all the negativity, Guys. Those mockers are uneducated Indonesians, will you place urself on the same level with those people?
I won't!

Back to topic ....

Which part of us is being degrading, if it makes you feel better you already surprassed our infras and city planning. There are also Malaysians constantly degrading indonesians as otherwise, because Indonesia is such a poor country with not so much achievements around the world, so why are did you get offended? There are also many unpleasing stuff malaysian forumers wrote about indonesians, which i rather avoid than getting involved with.

Why should we be happy about surprassing petronas tower anyway when burj khalifa stands 700m? What makes Indonesians exited is the fact that it will in the top ten list of tallest tower around the world, but with so everly vast growing china, it would be very hard for Indonesia to build towers that can degrades them all. And so even Malaysia will build warisan merdeka that stands taller than the currently proposed tower in Indonesia, you are just one insecured person.
