If you look at the first photo, think there's a spiking of the facade on the horizontal axis; the protrusions would not be all planar like that.

Looking forward to concepts, this might just be a placeholder.

MENARA WAWASAN MERDEKA: Interest already covers over 60pc of lettable space, says source

THE proposed 100-storey Menara Wawasan Merdeka has received pre-booking enquiries for over 60 per cent of its lettable space, according to an industry source.

The source said about 30 per cent of the space is being reserved for its developer, Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), and several government- linked companies under PNB’s stable.

To be officially launched by year-end, the Menara Warisan Merdeka will cost RM2.5 billion to RM3 billion. It will have gross floor space of 3.0 million sq ft and 2.2 million sq ft of net floor space.

This will be followed by two subsequent phases comprising a shopping complex and condominiums. The whole development, to be undertaken over a 10-year period, will cost RM5 billion.

Last month, PNB announced that it had obtained the development order from Kuala Lumpur City Hall to build the 100-storey
Menara Warisan Merdeka, touted to be the country’s tallest building.

PNB president and chief executive officerTan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman was reported as saying recently that the development order was attached with several conditions, including those related to legal matters.

PNB is studying the terms in order to fulfil them and to ensure proper planning as the development order was approved with conditions, Hamad Kama had said.

To be located within the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara heritage area, the concept of the 100-storey building, its retail portion and the condominiums was mooted in early 2004 taking into account the need for enhancement of value and effective utilisation of the 7.6ha land adjacent to the two stadiums.

In 2005, the master plan was approved by the municipal authorities, followed by the issuance of final titles in 2008. The principal concept of PNB iconic building was then approved
in 2009.

Since then, PNB has set up a wholly-owned unit, PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, to undertake the project, with Tengku Abdul
Aziz Tengku Mahmud, formerly from Guthrie Property Development Holding Bhd and Sime Darby Property Bhd, taking the helm.

Once completed, the Menara Warisan Merdeka will be over 600 metres tall compared with Petronas Twin Towers at 453m; Burj Khalifa at 829m; and Taipei 101 at 509m.

But when they use Steel than it's maybe possible.
But i think so things in so countrys are very impossible and maybe danger ... Maybe the construction side is on a cliff too haha

nah i think the technology is far enough, so they know what they can do they know what they are doing and i am sure even in such an area a megatall is possible and i am pretty sure we will get the proof within the next 10 years.

I think too...
But the Petronas Towers leaning ..

It's a very incredible job
it's a challenge

Confirmed 118 storeys

Warisan Merdeka tower to be 118 storeys high

KUALA LUMPUR: The Warisan Merdeka tower will be 118 storeys instead of the initial height of 100 storeys, revealed the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry in Parliament on Wednesday.

Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin revealed that the building was 118 storeys in his written reply to Fong Kui Lun (DAP - Bukit Bintang).

Fong had asked Raja Nong Chik to state the conditions imposed on Permodal Nasional Bhd (PNB) before it could be granted a development order to build the tower in Jalan Hang Jebat, Kuala Lumpur.

In his reply, RaJa Nong Chik said one of the conditions was for the "design of the antenna on top of the proposed 118 storey building to be improved so that it is more attractive and suitable with the tower's facade.

Based on the success of Petronas Twin Towers' economic impact, Malaysia's economy will now be watching this new development closely.

Fong had asked Raja Nong Chik to state the conditions imposed on Permodal Nasional Bhd (PNB) before it could be granted a development order to build the tower in Jalan Hang Jebat, Kuala Lumpur.

In his reply, RaJa Nong Chik said one of the conditions was for the "design of the antenna on top of the proposed 118 storey building to be improved so that it is more attractive and suitable with the tower's facade.

"The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has yet to issue a development order for the construction project of the tower as applied by the developer, PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd," he said.

Raja Nong Chik said a DBKL meeting he chaired on May 17 had decided that the application for the development order would be approved if PNB complied with six conditions.

Among the conditions were for PNB to provide 100% of the parking lots needed, photo spots for the public to take pictures and to meet technical requirements set by Tenaga Nasional Bhd.

Raja Nong Chik said PNB had yet to fulfil one more condition which was to apply to the Federal Territory land and minerals office to solve land takeover matters.

"DBKL will only issue the order once the PNB has met all conditions," he said.

At the Parliament lobby, Fong said he was shocked that the proposed building was now supposed to be 118 storeys.

"I urge DBKL not to approve the application as there is more than enough office space in Kuala Lumpur," he said, adding that the traffic situation in the area was also unsatisfactory.


Plans to build a 100-storey tower was announced during Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's Budget 2011 speech.

It is proposed to be built within a budget of RM5bil and is expected to be completed in 2015.

i am very optimistic about this tower. 118fl (and this tower is mixed used) + a massive spire, the result of this may surprise us, but i am quite positive we will get something far over the 600m.
