Construction of the project is expected to generate 10,000 jobs, he said. The development will house PNB’s offices and the remaining space will be rented out to local and international companies, he added.

The project’s launch comes as Malaysia’s economy, the third largest in Southeast Asia, has been pressured by lower energy prices, among other factors. Exports of liquefied natural gas and crude oil have suffered and the country’s currency, the ringgit, has hit multiyear lows this year.

I'm not sure where you come up with 2067 ft. When 644 meters =
2112 feet 10.331 inches? I'm thinking myb typo? This needs a change in title if the height is finalized. Unless that's height above sea level instead of building height

Based on what i read, the first phase includes the main tower and retail shopping complex which would be due in 2020. The second phase would be the other 4 towers (residencies)
