I like this angle of the tower:

I think that render looks a little wrong. For each segment of horizontal stripes, there seems to be three or four stories, based on the height of lit windows (which I assume are floor-to-ceiling, since they stack seamlessly in several places). I haven't counted all those stripes, but the picture seems to imply several hundred stories rather than "just" 118. If each stripe is one or two stories, it looks a lot more believable, but I think they've chosen the wrong texture to portray rooms with lights on.

Yup the render above is unofficial, created by another property developer for their marketing purposes. Basiacally the whole Warisan Merdeka project is just too secretive running quietly behind the curtain ....

Would love it if they did that, if they just got to 682 and just carried on building while everyone else went 'uum, are you done yet?'

PNB still finalising contractors list for Malaysia's tallest building

KUALA LUMPUR: Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) is in the process of identifying contractors for the construction of the 118-storey Menara Warisan Merdeka, said its president and chief executive officer Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman.

Work to strengthen the foundation at the site started in March and had already reached 30% completion.

The tower, located within the enclave of Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara, will be the tallest building in the country when completed in the next four years.

“We are still in the process of finalising the contractors and other aspects of the project,” Hamad Kama Piah told reporters.

don't think that Warisan Merdeka will be complete be 2018. 2020 is more precise as Warisan Merdeka project has been delayed for few times and this project should have be started way back in 2011! but due to protest and secrecy, only now they can started the construction.
