Wow they really pull out all the stops on this one. So many cool features not found in Petronas twins and other great towers around the world. Najib is really determined to trump Doc M's legacy huh..

Whelp, this is quite possibly the last great building national icon we will ever have. I have a feeling that the next PM will not subscribe this d*ck measuring contest.

That video has made me appreciate this project a lot more. The idea of glass floors on the skylobbies is cool!

Althought KL118 can be among or the most super iconic supertall building in the world, it still can't beat Petronas Twin Towers in term of it lagendary status & it special means for all Malaysian. Especially to all iconic buildings built during Tun Mahathir' era, build for us to believe that we can achieve something if we want to do so (standing in eyes of the world). The Twins is for national pride & build the nation while KL118, TRX, KL Metropolis etc are to continue the story of our success & lagendary....

I agree too regarding the video. While I thought of this originally as a landmark - yet not entirely special - skyscraper, the video has really opened my eyes to the beauty of this project. I really enjoyed hearing the programming aspects, structural, and learned a lot just from that presentation. Thanks for posting it.

Kingdom Tower will be at 636m, Dubai Spire(?) will probably go even higher cause its main purpose is an observation tower.

Yeah I don't forsee KL118 having the highest observatory, but it'll be right up there heads and shoulders with the 3rd, 4th, 5th tallest in the world which, for the local area is good enough. KL had the wonderful opportunity to have the WTB for a bit, and while it's unfortunate that it's not happening again, KL118 still looks to be a superb tower!

I like how the spire has a pattern on it that makes it look like the shape of the whole building, instead of being just a straight white needle. Also the idea with the glass elevators serving the skydeck is amazing!!! Just imagine riding the elevators and seeing the city grow smaller and smaller beneath you!!!

Love how Mr. Fender himself focusing in precise details of the building design, from the craved stones from italy and the hourly rotate dome at the podium to the glass floors of the sky lobby and so many more... i got a feeling he will also become lagendary in the global architectural scene same as Ceasar Phillip after building their masterpieces in Kuala Lumpur... talk about tanah bertuah- lucky land

Don't forget Mr. Fender has had successes elsewhere I.e the eureka tower mentioned in the video.I think this project would elevate his status a Lil further.

Sorry if this has been posted recently but does anyone know the estimated completion date of this, so far I've seen 2019 but not sure how accurate that is.
