How long has one of the planned towers been 608M? I always remember the thread saying both towers were to be around 300M

The older designs were better looking, imo. The height increase to 600m is nice, but I wouldn't care for that at the sacrifice of the design. The new project isn't bad looking, but its not that interesting either.

don't want to get in the way of the megatall hype... but 608m tall or 608m elevation? A magnificent addition to KL's skyline either way.

Looking forward to this more than anything in KL right now. IMO the simple design looks way better than the KL118

It is mind boggling to know the 2-3 midget companions are also supertalls own their own rights (as tall as Menara TM)

Kuala Lumpur's 2nd over 100-storey supertall is confirmed.

Rooftop height is "higher" than KL118 Tower.

What you guys think of having such a big monster close to PTT?

If construction starts soon KL could be the first city with 2 Megatalls . But dubai and Shenzhen also have still the chance.

it's not a concept as preparation is on the way and the developer are now trying to acquire nearby building to expand the project.

I imagine that the Wisma Cosway and Wisma Genting buildings are going to be demolished for the site of the Tradewinds Sqare development to expand.

I think the design is good enough for a skyscraper but when it's gonna be one of the tallest buildings in the city..I hope the design can be more iconic not only for the tower/owner itself, but also to the developments surrounding it, the overall city skylines and image as a whole. With great development comes great responsibility IMO. The best example for comparison and the effect it brings to the city and surrounding developments is KLCC vs KL Tower. Hope they can come up with a better design that complements well with all other iconic buildings in KL yet being iconic itself..

Somehow this design a bit resembling the old four season place Kuala Lumpur except that this version is fully glassy and and bit difference with the pinnacle.

I also hoped that will be happening. The vibrancy of Bukit Bintang need to be expand here and I hope that the Mall will attract more people in this area. right now it only busy during office hour.

Syed Mokhtar plans new 110-storey skyscraper in Jalan Sultan Ismail

Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary is planning a new 110-storey skyscraper in the centre of Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle business district.

The Kuala Lumpur skyline is expected to transform dramatically once a new supertall skyscraper is approved to be built next year and completed in 2020.

The new development will dethrone the world famous Petronas Twin Towers as Malaysia's tallest buildings. As one of Malaysia's largest national pride, the Petronas towers have been dominating the city skyline for almost two decades.

PTLM Research reported last year that Kuala Lumpur will soon be home to two new supertall skyscrapers with both having more than 100 storeys. Both of these towers will be taller than the Petronas Twin Towers. This report is now confirmed.

From cars to seaports and from rice to sugar, prominent Malaysian tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary is optimistic about his latest endeavour. His planned RM6 billion Tradewinds Centre development in Jalan Sultan Ismail has now been 'upgraded' to a much larger and taller project.

It is now on paper Malaysia's tallest building.

Renamed as the Tradewinds Square, the revised plan for the project comprises a 110-storey corporate office tower, a 61-storey mixed-use tower and a shopping mall with a floor space of 1 million square feet. The mall will cater to the upper-end market.

The total gross development value (GDV) for the project could be in excess of RM6 billion.

Global architectural firm Woods Bagot has been appointed as the lead architect for this project in association with Singapore-based DP Architects Pte Ltd and its local subsidiary DP Architects Sdn Bhd.

The 61-storey mixed-use tower contains a luxury hotel at the upper segment of the building and service residences including penthouses that are expected to be among the priciest property in Kuala Lumpur.

The hotel will welcome guests at its sky lobby on Level 59, making it the highest hotel arrival lobby in Southeast Asia. Level 60 and 61 will offer amenities such as swimming pool, gymnasium, spa and the rooftop sky lounge.

The hotel operator has not been confirmed but according to sources, the hotel will be a renowned international brand.

The office tower will reach a top-of-crown elevation of 608 metres while the hotel-cum-residences tower will reach 288 metres. Both towers will have a unique crown atop the building glowing lights for the city centre.

Tradewinds Square will be linked via a skybridge to the opposite development, which is the redevelopment of the former MAS building. The redevelopment will see the 35-storey building structure being upgraded into a 'Grade A' office building and connected to a new 50-storey hotel block.

From Hilton to rubble...

In April 2013, the former Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur and Kompleks Antarabangsa had began demolishment works. By August 2015, the site would have been fully cleared to makeway for Tradewinds Square.

Crowne Plaza was the first Kuala Lumpur Hilton and operated from the 1960s until 2001 when the hotel was rebranded to Mutiara Kuala Lumpur Hotel and managed by Pernas Hotel Management Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pernas International Holdings Bhd.

Later in 2004, Tradewinds Corporation Berhad (TCB) — formerly Pernas International, announced the appointment of Intercontinental Hotels Group to manage the hotel as Crowne Plaza Mutiara.

The 559-room Crowne Plaza Mutiara hotel finally ceased operations on 1 January 2013. Kompleks Antarabangsa, which used to house Ernst & Young — a Big 4 accounting firm, had been vacated much earlier with many tenants such as MMC Corporation Berhad, a sister company of TCB, relocated to other buildings in the city.

In December 2013, it was reported that Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar and Mohamed Ali Alabbar, the founder and chairman of Dubai-based Emaar Properties, have teamed up to develop this project under a company called Tradewinds International Sdn Bhd.

Riding on Alabbar's experience in creating global real estate landmarks, the original plan then was to feature as many as four towers consisting of a 65-storey and a 24-storey corporate office block, as well as a 54-storey service apartment, a 14-storey medical centre and a centrepiece central plaza inspired by the Rockefeller Center in New York City.

Alabbar's Emaar developed some of Dubai's most notable landmarks, such as the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and the Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping mall.

Iconic landmark in the city centre

Tradewinds Square is now said to be parked directly under TCB, the holding company of several blue-chip hotels and properties in Malaysia. The company was taken private by major shareholder, Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar, in September 2013 in a deal which valued the company at RM1.12 billion.

In August 2013, TCB had shown interest to acquire the neighbouring Kenanga International Building from Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB). It made sense for TCB to demolish it to make the site part of the planned massive project.

Development order for the revised plan is expected to be submitted by August 2015. This is pending the developer obtaining the power of attorney for the completion of the acquisition of the Kenanga building and land. It is believed that with the acquisition of the next door building and land, the enlarged site would enable TCB to develop Tradewinds Square into a new landmark for Malaysia.

Upon approval by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), the construction tender awards will be made by the middle of next year.

The project is expected to be completed in 2020, perhaps within that year to coincide with Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar's 70th birthday.

KL118 Tower versus Tradewinds Square

Tradewinds Square is the latest addition to Kuala Lumpur's booming construction sector.

In another site within the city, massive groundworks are currently underway for the construction of the approved RM6 billion KL118 Tower, formerly known as Menara Warisan Merdeka.

KL118 Tower will rise to 118 storeys comprising 80 levels of office space, 12 levels of hotel and 5 levels of hotel residences and remaining floors for retail and facilities. PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of state-owned fund manager Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) is the owner and developer of the project.

The 250-room hotel component is said to be managed under the branding of Park Hyatt under the Hyatt Hotels Corporation. This disclosure has not been verified by PNB.

It was reported that two out of six bidders have been shortlisted to be the frontrunners to bag the construction portion of the diamond-cut, glass-cladded skyscraper.

The two outfits are a joint venture between WCT Holdings Bhd and Dubai-based Arabtec Construction PJSC, and a consortium comprising UEM Group Bhd and South Korea's Samsung C&T Corporation.

Under Phase 2, an 8-level shopping centre will be built with a direct access from the tower, the urban park-cum-stadium grounds and the Merdeka MRT Station. Seven levels of basement carpark together with a 2-level underground access road tunnel from Jalan Belfield will also be built.

KL118 Tower has a top-of-crown elevation of 570 metres and together with the building spire will make it a total official height of 682 metres.

This simply means Tradewinds Square's 608 metres will make it the tallest building based on the measurement of top-of-crown elevation or rooftop height. If completed at the same time, however, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) would most likely declare KL118 Tower as the overall tallest building.

International consultancy firm, Turner International is involved as project manager for both KL118 Tower and Tradewinds Square. The firm is also involved in the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX), which is Kuala Lumpur's future purpose-built business district.
