is there a law that no building is allowed to be taller than the petronas?
well i still got to say that kl is one of the cities with the best scrapers, i love most of them :-) but some high ones would ad to the quality!
whats going on with the four roses (not sure about the name, the high twins that are now proposed for quite a while), i love its design so much. simple, elegant and a bit organic! would be perfect together with petronas!

KL City Plan 2020 » General Allowable Heights for Kuala Lumpur

General Allowable Heights for Kuala Lumpur



In general, the allowable heights for all areas in Kuala Lumpur are guided by a General Allowable Height Plan (GAHP) (Figure 6.2). The GAHP serves as guide for developments within Kuala Lumpur with the intentions of:

(a) Developing a city skyline and profi les that accentuate the city centre as central area for Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding areas as edges to the city with major landmark buildings in the city centre being the focus of vistas and views.
(b) Promoting innovative building designs in terms of massing and heights within the allowable plot ratio and height where strategically located landmark buildings can be created as local vistas or landmark to their locality.

6.4.1 Application of GAHP
• The GAHP shall be used as reference and guide in determining indication of maximum heights of buildings subject to compliance to allowable plot ratio or density as defi ned in the DCP 2 – Density Map and DCP 3 - Plot Ratio Map.
• Variation in heights between several towers and podium within a development can be allowed as long as they do not exceed the allowable plot ratio and the maximum allowable heights indicated in the GAHP.
• For buildings located within the designated height control zones indicated in Height Control Plan, guidelines regarding the respective height control zones must be observed and followed.

• For buildings or development where higher plot ratios are allowed (CDA area, urban regenerations areas and inner city centre area) which results in local peaking situations (higher building heights than GAHP) then such situation shall prevail against the GAHP.

However, such development must develop and submit to KLCH the detail Urban Design Guidelines (DUD) that should indicate how it relates to the overall city’s skyline and physical profile.

Guideline for Landmark View Corridor Height Control Zone

The two landmarks of Kuala Lumpur are the Petronas Twin Tower in Kuala Lumpur City Centre and the KL Tower in Bukit Nanas. These two landmark buildings have become a symbol that is synonymous to the city of Kuala
Lumpur.

Views towards the two landmark buildings are categorized into two categories as follows:

Landmark View Corridor
View looking directly towards either one of the landmark buildings from designated locations.

(a) LV1 – view from Tugu Negara
(b) LV2 – view from Dataran Merdeka
(c) LV3 – view from Sungai Besi Airport
(d) LV4 – view from MRR2 Kg Pandan
(e) LV5 – view from Tasik Ampang Hilir
(f ) LV6 – view from Wangsa Maju Park
(g) LV7 –view from Taman Tasik Titiwangsa
(h) LV8 – view from Taman Metropolitan Batu
(i) LV9 – view from MRR2/Taman Metropolitan Kepong

6.5.1 Maximum Allowable Heights
• Any part of a structure that is within the cone of the two landmark building is subject to the limitation of the building height.
• No part of a structure within the view corridor shall exceed the allowable height elevation in MSL. Whenever a structure lies partially outside and partially inside of the view corridor, the provisions of this guideline shall apply only to that part of the structure that lies within the zone.
• The highest point of the building shall be either the top of the parapet or coping of a fl at-roofed building, or the ridge of a sloping roof. No occupied part of any building shall be constructed above the permitted height and this includes unoccupied building features projecting above the highest point of the building.
• Actual building heights would vary depending on the fi nal grade of the site on which the buildings are located, and no part can project up into the defined view cone. This applies even in cases where a building straddles an elevation.
• For buildings located 1000m to the said landmarks, the position of the tower is critical and a tower location analysis needs to be prepared by the developer/land owner (see Section 6.5.3)

6.5.2 Heights Circulation
• The building height limitations depend on the vertical measurement to the top of the landmark as a reference point, usually with increased height allowed as the building is located farther and below the elevation of the landmarks. The vertical measurement is measured as elevation above mean sea level and in measurement of feet.
• The vertical measurement to the top of the landmark building i.e. Petronas Twin Tower and KL Tower. Height elevation of any buildings must not exceed the maximum height elevation of these two (2) landmarks (Table 6.2).

Petronas Twin Tower shall mean the two towers located on top of the podium block of Suria KLCC i.e. from the bottom of Link Bridge to the top most of the Tower Antenna.

KL Tower shall mean view to at least 75% of the total vertical height.


Example of Calculation:


Height Relative to Petronas Twin Tower Landmark View Corridor
i. The maximum height elevation of Petronas Twin Tower is 688.97 MSL or210 m height elevation.

ii. If the finished ground level of the proposed building is 98.4 MSL and islocated 4000 meter away from the tower , then the height is:
688.97 MSL – 98.4 MSL = 590.57 feet or 45 stories. (at 4.0 meter per level).

iii. The submitting person then needs to refer to the ‘General Allowable Height Plan’ (GAHP) to verify the final allowable height for the building.

iv. If the calculated height elevation as above is higher than GAHP, then the lower allowable height in this case the GAHP prevails. Thus in this case if the allowable height as GAHP is 38 stories, therefore the final allowable height is 38 stories and not 45.

v. If in any case, the calculated height elevation is lower than GAHP, than the lower allowable height in this case the View Corridor HCZ calculation shall take precedent.

6.5.3 Height Calculation for Building within Short Distance of
Landmark Buildings Description
In general there are many short views from major parksand major development within Kuala Lumpur city centre. There are two (2) means of control:
• Heights as AMSL; and
• Control over building above podium level. (Positioning of towers must not block visual corridor to the landmark buildings).

Buildings within short distance of the landmark buildings refers to buildings located within 1000 meter of either Petronas Twin Towers or KL Tower.

Example of Calculation for Building within Short Distance of Landmark Buildings
i. Part of the site falls onto the view corridor towards KLCC (control at 688.97ft).

ii. If the finished ground level is 196ft AMSL or 60m, then the allowable height is:
= 6.88.77ft – 196ft
= 492.97 feet (150m AMSL).
iii. Therefore, allowable heights for building located within the view corridor is 130m (MSL) whilst for part of building located outside the corridor must not exceed 240m (MSL) as determined through the GAHP.

iv. However, the position of the tower at 240m needs to be in position with narrower width facing towards KLCC.
