Kuala Lumpur - Plaza Rakyat (79, 44, 20 storeys, 382 m)

The 6.6 million sf mixed-use development and transportation
center is a complex of buildings centered around a major
retail development. Anchored by a 79-story office tower that
marks the western edge of this irregular-shaped site, the
complex features a multi-level shopping center of 1.7 million
sf combined with the office tower to create a vibrant civic
facade along Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur’s busiest thoroughfare.
Seven cineplex theaters and an entertainment center punctuate
the roof of the arcaded facade. At the opposite end of the
retail block is a 20-story, 415-room, four-star hotel that
defines the western edge of the site, linked to a 44-story,
315-unit service apartment complex.

Why don't you put all KL developments in one thread? Posting each building that is currently under construction or planned is akin to trolling.

Exactly.

Great news but no need to create a thread for every tower in the world forums. For example, Dubai has about 200 towers so I created a boom thread. It would be better if you do the same since it would be easier for everyone to view them.

from local news..

KL gives nod for second tallest building in M'sia


WORK on Malaysia's second-tallest building is set to resume as part of the government's drive to help revive some of the property projects halted by the regional financial crisis six years ago.


But plans for the world's longest building - a 2.4 km monster perched on stilts along the muddy Klang River - will remain on the drawing board.

Topping the list of 28 stalled projects that will be revived is Plaza Rakyat, a minister told BT.

Work on the RM1.7 billion (S$757 million) project - jointly developed by Sarawak tycoon Ting Pek Khiing's Wembley Industries and KL City Hall - ground to a halt in the late 1990s due to financing woes.

The developers originally wanted to build a 77-storey office block and retail podium with more than 6 million sq ft of space next to a dilapidated bus terminal in KL's Pudu area. Plaza Rakyat would have been Malaysia's second-tallest building after the 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers, the world's second-tallest building after Taipei 101.

The total floor space in the original blueprint of Plaza Rakyat is equivalent to four times the size of KLCC Suria mall next to Petronas Twin Towers. Or looked at another way, Plaza Rakyat is about six times the size of Suntec City mall in Singapore.

The government is urging developers to complete stalled projects to help improve KL's skyline.

'We are interested in helping these developers identify key problems and ensuring the projects will not be abandoned and become an eyesore,' Federal Territories Minister Isa Samad told The Star newspaper.

Five developers have agreed to convert commercial projects into residential ones and say they are confident of completing them if the authorities agree to a change of status. The developers have collectively invested RM1.2 billion in the 28 projects.

'It's up to them what they want to develop, as long as they focus on their scope and do a market study to determine viability,' Mr Isa said.

But one headline-grabbing project that won't be revived in its original form is GigaWorld, also known as KL Linear city.

The mixed-use project - planned by Vincent Tan of Berjaya Group and David Chew of KL Monorail - was frozen by the government when it moved to stem the import of big-ticket items to ease pressure on the current account during the crisis years.

WEMBLEY Industries Holdings Bhd said its wholly-owned subsidiary, Plaza Rakyat Sdn Bhd, signed yesterday a RM419.999 million contract with Jetwork Engineering Sdn Bhd for the completion of Phase I for the Plaza Rakyat project.

Works covered by the contract retail podium comprising shopping mall, a budget hotel and transport facilities are to be completed no later than May 7 2007.

Project Plaza Rakyat expected to be completed by 2007.

utusan.com.my 11/10/2005

Kuala Lumpur 10th August- The Plaza Rakyat Development project on Jalan Pudu thats planned to be a transportation center in the middle of the capital city is expected to be completed by 2007.

The Federal Territories deputy minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique said the government has agreed to renew and start a contract with Plaza Rakyat Sdn. Bhd. (PRSB) to complete the project by 31st May 2007.

PRSB has been asked to be ready and present its working schedule to meet the said date to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), which is a project joint developer said the minister whilst answering to Fong Kui Lun (M.P. DAP-Bukit Bintang).

Zulhasnan said from the DBKL report, the said project has shown progress in construction work.

The Federal Territories Ministry through its capacity for supervision of projects has always noticed these stalled projects, including late or behind schedule projects like the one mentioned.

He said that the project thats adjacent to the express bus and taxi terminal/station of Puduraya is classified under the status of stalled projects that has been reactivated or revived again. - Bernama
