It's official. Mulia Group has made changes in it's website. Now as tall as the Petronas twin towers


Quote:
The Signature Tower, the tallest building at the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) together with its landmark centerpiece, will standout dramatically and transform Malaysia’s skyline. With a height equivalence of 112 floors, this modern icon nestled in a park setting, comprises 106 floors of expansive column-free floorplates inclusive of 8 amenity floors. Designed to the highest specifications it is environmentally sustainable and certified under the Green Building Index (GBI) as well as the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

Its touch of modernity and grandeur can be seen with the exquisite use of materials that starts with a majestic 15 meter grand lobby set in a serene lush landscape with water features and continues with its accents of luxury sweeping through the tower towards the exquisite sky lobby offering commanding views of the city and gracefully culminates in a 48 meter, 12-storeyed high illuminated crown elegantly sculptured at its peak.

Changes made

Number of floors : 106 (including 12-storey crown)

Official height : 1483 ft / 452 meters

Source : http://www.mulia.com.my/the-signature-tower/

* the same height with Petronas towers (inclusive of their spires)

Also from the video description, it's going to be 106-storey tall, not 92.




Wow pretty nice...

I do wonder how they manage to fill all these towers in such a small country and a relatively small city in global terms? There is a lot of prestige behind KL's rapid construction, with what I perceive as an anxiety to place KL on the world's stage for its skyline ever since the completion of Petronas Towers. Perhaps they see it as competition with neighbouring Bangkok! Do most of these high rises remain empty?l

IINM, they already secured tenancy of Prudential and 2 unnamed international banks. Affin Bank and Tabung Haji will join soon. Since this is financial district, the tenants mostly revolve around that.
Also, KL is not that small. It is alpha global city on the same notch as Los Angeles and Chicago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_city

1) The tower is being built with foreign money by foreign builder (Indonesia), in other words, a well thought out foreign private investment in KL. There are other supertall projects planned in KL by foreign developers; Oxley tower (Singapore), CRC Regional HQ (China), Tradewinds Square (Dubai).

2) The signature tower is going to be part of a new financial district in which KL doesn't have at this moment to streamline its banking industry. It's inevitable that some uninformed people may wonder why KL would need a brand new financial district. You should know that KL is the single most important city in the world for the niche Islamic finance business. Malaysia was the one that modernized Islamic finance, and KL is where the main innovators and educational institutions are located. Other financial centres were competing with KL to grab the business, Singapore gave up, HK and Dubai still in the race. To remain at the forefront Malaysia needs to streamline its banking industry, which is where the new financial district (Tun Razak Exchange) comes into the picture.

3) FYI Islamic finance worth $2 trn in 2015, and forecasted to be a $3.2 trn industry by 2020. It's a big stake, big money in which KL doesn't want to lose out.

4) The builders in KL never thought about competing with Bangkok (for a start, KL is an Alpha city, one notch above BKK). What's good for Bangkok is good for KL. Bangkok was the most visited city in the world in 2016, KL was 7th (Singapore 6th). When international visitors fly to Bangkok, they are likely to tour KL along side it. Which is why most supertalls planned / UC in KL are either residential or hotels. The tallest project (PNB118) comprises of office + residences + hotel. PNB is a massive GLC with offices in multiple locations across KL. They will house all their different departments in a single building once PNB118 is completed.

5) Arcadis consultation group named KL as the 19th most economically healthy city in the world (actually above Tokyo) - to answer your question whether these towers are empty.

I'm sure someone has brought this up, but why is this the exact height of the petronas towers? They couldn't go just a meter taller?

In a sense it is taller than the Petronas towers if you think about it this has a roof height of 452 meters, Petronas has that spire height

To answer your question, office space occupancy rate is still about 80%

And I agree with some of the other comments here, KL may not be as small as you think.
