Your guess is as good as mine. But if you watched the embedded YouTube video (taken late last year) the main architect mentioned the project would be finished in 2020. He should know better since he is the principal of this project.

To me Merdeka PNB 118 still failed to overpass the Iconic and Beauty of the Petronas Twins. Not forget to mention is the Legendary status of the towers. Petronas Twin Towers still the best designed, the best looking building that ever built ( at least to me).

Waiting for the triggered comments to enter about how Shanghai Tower is currently the most beautiful skyscraper there is! Even though not everyone might think this skyscraper beats the Petronas Towers in terms of beauty, it most definitely will so in height and have a huge impact on the KL skyline. I'm really excited to start seeing this tower begin to rise skyward!!!

For me am not getting serious about the design but access to the landmark is more important. Merdeka PNB will be more connected than PTT coz KLCC from the day one, there's just only one underground LRT station and it is too crowd for nowaday from the concourse to the podium mall.

PTT
- KLCC LRT underground station
- goKL free bus
- rapidKL shuttle bus
- Skywalk from KLCC-Bukit Bintang

Merdeka PNB118
- Merdeka MRT underground station
- There're some other public transport mode which located nearing the project such as LRT-Plaza Rakyat station, LRT-Hang Tuah station, monorail-Hang Tuah, monorail-Maharajalela
- MRT feeder bus
- rapidKL bus

Can't verify this information but internal news is that start on site for vendors will be in Nov-Dec, meaning another 6-8 months delay from current 'official' schedule.

At the moment there is no official statement on it, but base on it functions and it location itself beside one of World Megatall building, I believe Gov has plan to refurbish it in future. FYI, stadium negara until today still active being fav for an international live concert & events in KL centre despite it old look. So i think the indoor stadium has good prospect (profitable) to be refurbished in coming years.
