Samsung, Turner, wow! They do the impossible again. Guess this project to complete will be the new Malay icon.
My friends travel to Malaysia often buy the Petronas Towers keychain as a souvenir.

Why not channel your disrespect to burj khalifa, kingdom tower whose vanity height is much worse than this building? For your perspective,

The right angle for Tunku's (father of ondependence) resemblance of the tower is this one

Merdeka=Independence in English

hence the official name... Merdeka PNB(company's name) 118(no of floors)...
It was also known as Warisan(Heritage of) Merdeka(Independence) previously.

Even if it's a "cheater tower", vanity height is getting to be common these days for better or worse. And even if we remove the spire, it's still amongst the tallest in the world either way. Not worried.

That symbolic imagery though is quite neat.

the great amount of symbolic meaning and details adapted to the design of this building are enough to get all the respect it needed even if you dont,yes its officially named PNB118,but for us Malaysians,it is Independence Tower

I mean its roof height of over 490 meters would still make it the tallest building in the city. So even without the spire it would still be among the tallest buildings in Asia. I don't mind the spire on this one, since it fits the design. IF a spire adds to a buildings design (e.g. Burj Khalifa, PNB 118) I think it is a good choice to include it in height, but if it is just there for height and doesn't add to the design (e.g. Heron Tower) I don't like them.

Even if it's a cheater tower, the floor area is still huge.
Other buildings can cheat in some other way too, like making a building so thin to make it looks taller than it actually is.

This must be some of the brightest concrete I have seen!

Does the concrete color depend on the sand that is being used, or are there other factors that determine the color?

Butthurt at not having a tower to admire over in Siberia eh, you jealous fellow... Tell that to your President Putin, and ask him to build a tower similar to the beautiful new ones in Moscow then!

And @Focalor, there are loads of thin towers in New York City nowadays, giant versions of those in Hong Kong... So thin that they are probably only the size of the elevator core in the PNB118 Tower!
