it will be built as right now the new developer is currently working pumping out the water from the basement. can you imagine water that has been trapped there since the 90's ? it's really a tough job.

Not ideal. But just like KLCC, once done, more high-end buildings will sprout alongside it.

but I think for KL118, it will be a different story. The location where KL118 sits is quite close with some historical building like the school (can't recall the name). plus from the picture above, you can see there's a lot low rise building that scattered in between the Plaza Rakyat and KL 118 in which I do hope can be transformed into a small park.

KL118 FAST FACTS

- Permodalan Nasional Bhd, via its wholly owned subsidiary PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, is the owner of KL118.
- KL118, formerly, known as Warisan Merdeka expected generate a gross development value (GDV) of more than RM6 billion.
- The consortium of South Korea-listed Samsung C&T Corp and its local partner UEM Group Bhd won the US$505mil (RM2.12bil) 644m tower construction job.
- 60 floors will be occupied by the state-owned fund manager PNB and its group of companies that have international business exposure.
- 20 floors are allocated for multinational companies and Malaysian firms that want to operate from a signature tower of international standing.
- 20 floors would be reserved for a 250-room hotel to be operated by an international luxury hotel group.
- The remaining 18 floors would include two levels for an observation deck at the highest point of the tower, the rest of the space will be occupied by a business centre, elevators, recreational and maintenance facilities, as well as parking levels for up 5,000 bays
- The net lettable area for office space alone, excluding the hotel portion, is about 150,000 sq m.
- The tower will also be connected to Merdeka MRT station.
- The building will have green features and that will enable the company to apply for LEED ( leadership in energy and environmental design) and GBI (green building initiative) ratings.

So this notice is telling us that this isn't the final design for the KL118 Tower after all? It's just preliminary? They're unveiling the tower's true final design even though construction had already started on it.

so the tower is already under construction? it looks like they don't want to give high publicity for this project since previously this project received a lot of backlash (even now we still don't like it) in the time of bad economy as well as wrong location. but I agree that KL needs new tallest building, since Petronas Twin Towers are already nearly 20 years old. Looking forward to see the 'real' final published design soon.
