Is this tower going to be completely commercial, if so Burj 2020 will have to be taller than this tower to reach its goal. Burj 2020's goal is to be the tallest commercial tower in the world. At least 600 meters.

It's a mixed use development with office, residential and hotel rooms.

there are also some floor plans, not sure if they show the current plans. but if yes, the tower will be taller than 610m since the roof is shown at 570m + a quite long spire.

Exactly, it is taller than PingAn with the spire (660m) so I expect a proper mammoth.

KL118 Tower versus Tradewinds Square

Tradewinds Square is the latest addition to Kuala Lumpur's booming construction sector.

In another site within the city, massive groundworks are currently underway for the construction of the approved RM6 billion KL118 Tower, formerly known as Menara Warisan Merdeka.


KL118 Tower will rise to 118 storeys comprising 80 levels of office space, 12 levels of hotel and 5 levels of hotel residences and remaining floors for retail and facilities. PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of state-owned fund manager Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) is the owner and developer of the project.

The 250-room hotel component is said to be managed under the branding of Park Hyatt under the Hyatt Hotels Corporation. This disclosure has not been verified by PNB.

It was reported that two out of six bidders have been shortlisted to be the frontrunners to bag the construction portion of the diamond-cut, glass-cladded skyscraper.

The two outfits are a joint venture between WCT Holdings Bhd and Dubai-based Arabtec Construction PJSC, and a consortium comprising UEM Group Bhd and South Korea's Samsung C&T Corporation.

Under Phase 2, an 8-level shopping centre will be built with a direct access from the tower, the urban park-cum-stadium grounds and the Merdeka MRT Station. Seven levels of basement carpark together with a 2-level underground access road tunnel from Jalan Belfield will also be built.

KL118 Tower has a top-of-crown elevation of 570 metres and together with the building spire will make it a total official height of 682 metres.

This simply means Tradewinds Square's 608 metres will make it the tallest building based on the measurement of top-of-crown elevation or rooftop height. If completed at the same time, however, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) would most likely declare KL118 Tower as the overall tallest building.

International consultancy firm, Turner International is involved as project manager for both KL118 Tower and Tradewinds Square. The firm is also involved in the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX), which is Kuala Lumpur's future purpose-built business district.
