Yup just update that in Plaza Rakyat's thread...
But they are still looking for suitable developer to take over the abandoned project.

I often update projects like this on SSP right after sources get posted on this forum Sources get posted in this forum and the databanks change according to us in a lot of cases.

They should have build this KL118 Tower on the Plaza Rakyat plot! I still think the location of the KL118 Tower is a bit strange, somewhere in a quiet corner of the City Center, would have expected it in the KLCC area, although the surroundings will definitely change due to this project.

Foundation work for 118-storey tower to be completed in 3Q15

By Sulhi Azman / theedgemarkets.com
November 25, 2014 : 5:36 PM MYT

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 25): Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), the country's largest state asset manager, expects foundation and piling works on the KL118 Tower, formerly Menara Warisan Merdeka, to be completed by the third quarter of next year.

"Currently, the foundation work progress is at 52% and should be completed by the third quarter of 2015. We will also announce the main contractor by the second quarter of next year as it is still at the pre-qualification stage," PNB president and group chief executive Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman told a press conference after announcing the income distribution of 6.2 sen per unit for its Amanah Saham Nasional 3 balanced fund today.

The controversial KL118 Tower along Jalan Hang Jebat here will have 118 storeys and is estimated to cost RM5 billion.

Cool that Malaysia follows China in constructing megatalls. When is this tower supposed to rise above ground?
