I'm guessing maybe around 600ft..
That should've been a roof increment and then.. add again the spire xD

I thought the same, not only in this render. But that's a good way to increase the official high, so it's for example higher than shanghai tower

But that site says the height will be 630 meters which is less than Shanghai Tower. The exaggerated spire doesn't help.

That spire is almost or a little more than a quarter of the buildings total height that is ridiculous the tower itself would look fine with or without it. 1600+ ft of building is a great height for KL no need to overkill it with a 1wtc style height booster. IMO

My impression on PNB118 after watching the video is dark.

It gives an image of being the headquaters of Evil Incorporated.

honestly it still fails to match the iconic Petronas. The petronas twin are indeed an ageless beauty. It were just too iconic.

Why they don't install a taller spire so as to make the building taller than Shanghai Tower (632m)?

Not true. There is another cheaper and better option to set up a new record called 'Laser Spire' as shown in the attached picture.

Did anyone notice very few supertalls in China have the spire in order to be taller than someone else??? If you list top ten supertalls in China, you will see what I am saying.
