Only if the people living there are given units of equal or superior value (and agree to the move free from coercion and intimidation). Displacing the poor to line the pockets of already wealthy developers is despicable imo. Their lives are hard enough as it is.

KL has more density than what is usually apparent on classical post-card pictures of its skyline.

Skyscraper density has long been my biggest beef with the KL skyline, but it's starting to fill in nicely.

True. KL already has the iconic supertalls and a couple more supertalls on the way. It is nice to see some filler towers going up. Another skyline to keep an eye on as we go into the next decade
