The design is not unique. I can not say that it's not beautiful, but I can not say what I like

I mean it certainly would be a tourist attraction having a 644 meter tall leaning building. Not sure about the safety aspect though!!!

Shouldn't we change the height in the title from 644m to 682m and 2113ft to 2237 ft ?

KUALA LUMPUR: Carrier (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has won the contract to supply centrifugal chillers and air handling units for the Merdeka PNB118 project.

Upon completion in 2020, the 682-metre Merdeka PNB118 will be Malaysia’s tallest tower.

Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of the New York stock exchange-listed United Technologies Corp.

Carrier will supply AquaEdge 19XR two-stage centrifugal chillers which use state-of-the-art two-stage compressors and heat transfer pipes with three-dimensional enhancement.

The chillers can achieve a coefficient of performance of up to 6.5 under Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute operating conditions.

“We applaud Merdeka PNB118 for its leadership in using energy-efficient technologies to build an environmentally responsible landmark in Malaysia,” said Carrier Malaysia managing director Victor Yu.

“We are also proud to leverage our track record on large projects and to provide an advanced product portfolio that makes innovative climate solutions with less environmental impact possible,” he added.

By 2020, the Merdeka PNB118 in Kuala Lumpur will surpass the city’s current tallest building – the Petronas Twin Towers, the world’s tallest twin towers.

Merdeka PNB118 will house Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB)’s group of companies (60 floors), with 23 rentable office floors and a 17-storey luxury hotel with 236 rooms, as well as multiple sky lobbies and an observation deck.

The skyscraper is also seeking triple Platinum certification under the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) programme, the Green Building Index (GBI) and the GreenRE programme, as well as MSC Malaysia Cybercentre Status.

Other than PNB’s headquarters, Carrier has also served the PNB Perdana Hotel & Suites on the Park (formerly known as PNB Darby Park Executive suites), the KL Tower, Holiday Inn Glenmarie and University Malaysia Pahang.

Not really related but good to know that the owner pnb is doing well right now.

Quote:
PERMODALAN Nasional Bhd (PNB), the country’s largest fund management group, has seen the market capitalisation of its six core investee companies rising by RM25 billion in the last five months.

......

The group’s asset under management currently stood at about RM266 billion(around USD60 bil) , with 98 per cent invested domestically, he said.
More than two-thirds of its funds are invested in equities. The rest are in private equity, fixed income and properties, among others.
PNB expects a gross income of RM18.64 billion and a net income of RM15.18 billion this year.
