New Name and New height???

The most ambitious development is the Warisan Merdeka, whose new tower is set to become the tallest in the country, once completed by 2019. The building will be 596 meters high – almost 150 meters taller than the Petronas Towers - and will comprise 118 floors. It is due to be built near Merdeka Stadium. According to reports, both Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara will be preserved as national heritage buildings.

That's not the latest. It would be more than 600m+ including the spire.

If it will be arround 680m as estimated and a very soon construction start the tower would be the 4th tallest when topped out.

Glad they are going for the full 682 m. Love their attitude to skyscraper building. They don't build a skyscraper for ages and then they think 'lets build'. What you get is an incredible 682 m giant. They can still build right up there with the rest of them!

They'd better get their act together and build the seventh wonder of the world when they dare overshadow Petronas.



Looking forward to it.

Yes the area surrounded by red/white barriers is the site for the integrated MRT station (underground). The rest is the site for Warisan Merdeka!

US' Turner Construction sets sights on Greater Kuala Lumpur


WITH property development increasingly reaching for the skies, a company from the United States has established its roots in Greater Kuala Lumpur to tap the ever-growing market segment in Malaysia and the Asean market.

Turner Construction Co, a multinational construction firm, has been in Asia since 1965 when it managed the construction of Hong Kong’s Mei Foo Sun Chuen, one of the world’s largest residential developments at that time. Since then, it has placed its fingerprint on a number of iconic developments dotted throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

From Taipei 101 in Taiwan to the Bitexco Financial Tower in Vietnam, Turner has carved a position in the development of iconic projects in South-East Asia.

“Our current focus is in South-East Asia, particularly Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, where we carry out our assignments through a regional and country-focused management structure,” Jack Cummiskey, vice- president and regional manager, Asia Turner International Malaysia Sdn Bhd. said of its work in the Asian markets.

In Malaysia, it is now doing infrastructure work on the Tun Razak Exchange, involved in the construction of the Warisan Tower and the Warisan Merdeka Mall, the Four Seasons Place KL and working on Tradewinds Square, Menara Tun Razak and the Etiqa office tower, a 38-storey office tower in Greater Kuala Lumpur.

“While Turner is contracted directly for these projects, we routinely work side by side with a host of local firms providing design and specialty consulting for many aspects of the projects,” he said.

With more than a handful of projects in Malaysia, Turner’s decision to set up an office in Greater Kuala Lumpur was based on more than just the potential of the Malaysian market.

“Our decision was guided by three factors, including the potential the Malaysia market offers not only in Greater Kuala Lumpur but throughout the peninsula.

“In addition, we have found a very business friendly environment which supports our overall growth strategies for the region. In turn, KLIA offers the best access to the South-East Asia region making Greater Kuala Lumpur a natural choice for our regional headquarters,” Cummiskey said.

As there is a tremendous amount of building happening in South-East Asia, Turner believes that many firms will find the property segment and the business-friendly market in Malaysia, specifically Greater Kuala Lumpur, a prime spot for developing their regional hub.

“We also believe the high levels of foreign direct investment, which we see as a leading indicator for Malaysia’s economy, will continue to grow sustainably making Malaysia a strategic market for a wide array of market sectors,” he said.

From Turner’s perspective, the edge Greater Kuala Lumpur presents is the strength of the property development sector itself.

“While regional neighbours are also experiencing impressive growth, the business and living environment in Greater Kuala Lumpur make it a very easy place to attract our best professionals to the scale and quality of developments such as Warisan Merdeka and Tradewinds Square are quite rare and unique globally giving us yet another excellent recruiting tool,” said Cummiskey.
