Design Updated for Proposed Malaysian Megatall


Quote:
In many respects, the Petronas Towers put the Malaysian metropolis of Kuala Lumpur on the map for international skyscraper geeks. The twin skyscrapers were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004, and no tower in the city has yet surpassed their 452-metre height. A development boom producing projects like the 630-metre KL118 may spell the end of their reign over the city, and a national hospitality and property developer is proposing yet another megatall skyscraper that would eclipse the landmark Petronas Towers.

Is this really 775m? I've seen renders which seem more around the 600m mark.

The latest height revealed has indicated the tower is going to be 775m but anything can happens.

According to the news on July 26, 2016

Quote:
An earlier plan for an integrated mega project, Tradewinds Centre, on the site was given a plot ratio of 10.55. Subsequently, the plot ratio for the development, renamed Tradewinds Square, was increased to 16. The tallest tower is expected to be 775m high.

I don't think the one in Shenzhen will gets built,remember Qianhai Tower? That one has been proposed for a quite long time,still no action been taken,and along with many other megatall Proposals,only Ping An is built successfully but it's not a megatall. Shenzhen has the issue of flight path,this is a great obstruction to these megatalls.
Congrats to Kuala Lumpur,the new height surprises me,in my opinion,a building with a roof height of 775 m is higher than Kingdom Tower,which includes a long spire.

This render definately does not look 775m. It looks like the 608m version.

for once again, this project is currently stalled, confirmed by the project manager Turner, and that was from last year. But the good thing is there will be possibilities for revival in the future. We might need to wait for the next 3 to 4 years to come.

I'm guessing that they're waiting for the leases of the tenants in the two highrises to the south of the Tradewinds Square site to expire before the project's construction proceeds any further. Also, the project's site is on a slope or something?Recent photos show an apparent grade difference.
