KUALA LUMPUR: Recipients of key contracts to build the country’s tallest building, the RM5 billion Warisan Merdeka Tower, will be known by December.

Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) said it is evaluating the contractors which have shown interest in the project.

“The main contractors will be announced in the last quarter of this year,” said PNB president

and group chief executive Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman at a press conference, here, yesterday.

The 118-storey building, coded KL118 Tower, will be the country’s new landmark.

At 610m, it will surpass the 452m Petronas Twin Towers.

Seacera Group Bhd is among the contractors eyeing the major contracts.

The company announced in June that it had teamed up with two Chinese firms and a Malaysian company to bid for the job.

The first contract for the tower went to Pintaras Jaya Bhd, which is undertaking RM74 million foundation works.

Finnish firm KONE Corp, meanwhile, had in June won a contract to supply 105 elevators and escalators.

The mandatory conditions that must be met by the contractors include having successfully completed contract works of at least RM5 billion per year in the last five years. Foreign

contractors are required to form a 60:40 joint venture with local companies.

Hamad Kama Piah said foundation and piling works for the Warisan Merdeka Tower have reached 35 per cent, and are expected to be completed by the third quarter of next year.

Hopefully 610m is the height at roof level, not after the spire |:

Beauty is more important than height. Even after this building is finished Petronas will still be the most beautiful buildings in KL.

Beg to differ. No one can claim that until there's an official vote on it.

It's a beautifully design building. To each, his own.

ARCHITECTS: Fender Katsalidis



Fender Katsalidis Architects (FKA) is an architecture firm in Melbourne, Australia. Headed by principals Karl Fender and Nonda Katsalidis, the firm has been notable since the early 1990s, producing many landmark buildings in Melbourne and other Australian cities and also in South East Asia. The firm was first established as Nation Fender and, since 1996, as Nation Fender Katsalidis. FKA buildings are distinctive, often very masculine and sculptural, they also feature a variety of materials and textures such as exposed steel, left to the weather, or rough hewn timber. An early FKA project involved the conversion of former grain silos in Richmond, a Melbourne suburb, into distinctive apartments featuring balconies resembling a ship's bow. FKA also designed Eureka Tower completed in June 2006 in Southbank, which has become Melbourne's tallest building and one of the tallest residential buildings in the world.

It looks like the kind of buildings I have been modeling in 3D when I was 14 years old

if the floor heights are similar to the cinese megatalls we've a chance, but if they're similar to the Lotte Tower in Seoul the chances are low. Let's hope the best

I get you : )

Anyway, my point is sometimes what is rendered beautifully when completed turns out to be a completed farked up ugly looking building. & those that are illustrated simply may turn out to be a gorgeous swan.

Plus, with Warisan Merdeka, there's yet a complete official info on how it looks like so we all may be viewing it differently based on our own point of view.
