I remember a few years back almost everyone was against this project. Why the excitement now when Malaysian economy continues going downhill...

The construction of the country’s tallest building, Merdeka PNB118, is progressing well and expected to be ready by the end of 2020, said Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) president and group CEO Datuk Abdul Rahman Ahmad.

He said the 682m skyscraper, also known as Warisan Merdeka, is still in the early stages of construction with about 10% of the works having been completed.

With a cost of about RM5 billion, PNB — the owner of the 118-storey tower — believes it could secure enough tenants despite the present oversupply of office space in Kuala Lumpur.

Abdul Rahman said PNB is confident of a positive take-up rate as the building will also become its new corporate headquarters.

“Yes, there is an oversupply, but the building will effectively be PNB’s corporate headquarters, so the company’s occupancy itself will cover 60% of the office space,” Abdul Rahman told The Malaysian Reserve on the sidelines of PNB’s annual review briefing in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Located on a 7.6ha land near the Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara, Warisan Merdeka will not only surpass the Petronas Twin Towers as the tallest structure in Malaysia, but it is set to become the world’s third-tallest building.

With a floor space of 400,000 sq m, the tower would be the country’s next landmark.

PNB is already looking for tenants, as well as attracting partners for the building’s retail and office spaces.

“We are currently focussed on the construction of the building and in enhancing the value of the property by getting external parties to come on board and occupy the remaining spaces,” Abdul Rahman said.

Worries of oversupply had hit the office and commercial space segment, with more developments expected to come on stream — especially with the development of key projects such as Bandar Malaysia and the Tun Razak Exchange.

The drop in crude oil price — which began in 2014 — also forced many oil and gas companies to trim their operations, leaving additional office space.

The Warisan Merdeka major construction contract, worth about RM3.4 billion, was awarded by PNB to a joint venture (JV) between UEM Group Bhd and South Korea’s Samsung Construction & Trading Corp (Samsung C&T) last year.

UEM chairman Tan Sri Ahmad Tajuddin Ali was previously reported as saying that the project would be one of the group’s final construction ventures, before the engineering-based infrastructure and services conglomerate shifts its focus from construction to become a developer.

UEM was involved in the construction of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2, the Penang Bridge and the mass rapid transit (MRT) project stretching from Cheras to Kajang.

Samsung C&T had earlier worked on the construction of the Petronas Twin Towers and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which is presently the world’s tallest building at 828m.

PNB’s subsidiary, PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, is the owner of the tower. The net lettable area for the office space comprises an estimated 150,000 sq m, with the tower expected to be connected to an MRT station.

It was also reported that a total of 20 floors have been reserved for an international luxury hotel group, which would operate a 250-room hotel in the building

They have to relook the standard in measuring the building's height. the structure's height from the lowest entrance is 682m. But if one measures that from the ground entrance level, then it will be different height. There are multi-entrance to the building itself through different ground levels.

This is the earlier structural plan. This is not the finalized and they might have already amended or added more floors. Just to show the ground level have different entrances - through Jalan Stadium & Jalan Hang Jebat to be precised.

I can see clearly Tunku (complete with the head wear) waves his hand up shouting "Merdeka,Merdeka,Merdeka!" from the right (side) diagram

According to this forumer on malaysian subforum

From World Development News Forums<br />
[quote name="Nemiq" post=136068011]Mezzanine floor added at 116M and floor height increased among top 15-20 floors. Not a big change but a way to increase the height a bit, aiming to be tallest building in Asia (not counting China obviously). So far no changes below 96F..[/QUOTE]

is 682 m still achievable ? The words came straight from the CEO's mouth (unless the journalist was crappy or ceo was misinformed by his project managers?)

Dubai and Saudi Arabia are part of Asia too.

And besides, saying "Asia not counting China" is like saying "the cup has a half ounce of coffee in it, not counting the water"

For me I don't care if its going to be a few meters taller or not
what is important is that the design looks good, and I think it does
and that it gets completed on time and on budget.
