Kuala Lumpur - the troika (50, 44, 38 storeys)

Designed by renowned international architects Foster and Partners, the three-tower development is set to redefine the Kuala Lumpur city skyline, and indeed, the residential marketplace in the Asia Pacific region.

With a sheer glass and steel fašade, the development will be one of very few residential developments by the architect, generally known and recognized for his ground-breaking, environmentally sensitive work in building commercial and public spaces.

www.troika.com.my

Comprising three towers of 51 storeys, they will be linked midway at the 26th to 28th floors by skybridges.
