What makes you think it is? The most recent pictures show an emptied site, but that isn't indicative of much. A lot of great supertall projects have made it to the "empty site" stage without ever entering construction.

Well, on this project's thread in the local Malaysian forum (and on this thread as well), I (and another user*) have hinted at the possibility of the Cosma and Genting Buildings being demolished to expand the site of the Tradewinds Square project, last year. In fact, the render for the Tradewinds Square project shows a vacant green area to the south if it. If the project expands to that (empty) site, will there be a redesign for it?

Also, the slow progress and market conditions affecting the project tells me that Kuala Lumpur tore down a good large hotel for nothing.

* The other user's (azey) remark is on the local Malaysian thread for Tradewinds Square.

Wiki stated the construction work will be in 2017 (wow! really?), I know we can't trust info in wiki, but its good if its true they can start construction work by this year and completed in 2022-2023.

Personally I prefer the construction will only start after TRX tower & KL118 have been completed to avoid surplus in corporate offices demand, but they might also think about the cost if they started late.

From all the renders I have seen it looks like this be 600-630m. I highly doubt it will be over 700m, let alone 775m

Beautiful big brother rising next to the Petronas twin sisters. =) I really like the design. I get this Kuala-Lumpur-feeling when I see those three skyscrapers.
