You should keep in mind that this is a global forum and not everyone is a native english speaker...

Personally, my biggest gripe with this project is the freakin' podium! We already have a large amount of malls in KL, and not enough walkable green space or public squares in the center city. I would like to have a KLCC Park and Square around the tower that will connect to the next-door stadiums, instead of another mall.

unfortunately, cities like KL and Dubai have extremely hot climate my friend... u just cannot enjoy the walk the way u enjoy it at the Hyde Park in London...

Talk about a shady walkways, it helps... but just to a minimum extend. After 10-20 minutes of walking, peoples surely will feel uncomfortable.Even another tropical city like Singapore has hundreds of malls some sitting side by side to each other along a main road/avenue in between some popular spots in the city.... what is working for one city might not suitable to another city with different climate... each city just needs to align itself n thinking of an alternative to that....

Plus WM blueprint is not as big as the klcc site... just hope they will transform the stadium area with shadier trees n nicer landscape. That would be enough for me.

Have to disagree with you on this one. A few months ago, I visited KLCC Park in the afternoon and the place was FULL of locals and tourists walking down the paths or having picnics under the trees.

A good park in KL doesn't have to be big or open, but shady and cool. Do that, and have some historical or must-see buildings nearby (heck, this place will have it's own MRT station!) and you will attract lots of people.

some times,its extremely hot with no winds nor breeze.some times its hot and hazy.not to forget the often monsoon rain and storm.probably u visited KLCC when the weather is hot but with a very acceptable temperature and pleasant breeze.better have both to suit visitor's different interest.

Parks would be a good idea and I much prefer them over malls but most of KLCC's traffic is because of Suria KLCC. If the park was that big an attraction they'd go to better parks in the city.

Pilling quality was not satisfactory, which have set back the project by a couple of months. New pilling to be done...

MC/Samsung announced it a few weeks back during weekly sub-con meeting. Officially 2 months delayed but unofficial saying is that it will be ~5 months. Also it can be seen on site that new pilling is being done next existing ones.

Thanks for the information! Since you seem to be near the site, could you take a picture next time you are there?

How would this be possible? Piles are not at random locations but where the loads (=columns) are coming down. New piles at different locations would mean the structural layout of the tower would have to change?!
