This seems like a radical change to KL's skyline. I'm not too sure how it will gel with the Petronas Towers tho.

90 storey office tower


old version - 79 storey = 382m
if 1flr =4.5m
so 79 x 4.5 =355.5m + spire = 382m


new design - 90 storey = 405m (minimum height)
so 90 x 4.5=405m (without spire) - minimum height

Interesting....
For some reason ever since they built the Petronas twins, I never thought they would build another 400m+ supertall, mostly because it would upset the balance in the skyline, centered on the twins.
What is the location of the building, related to the Twins?

For some reason I always thought the Petronas were loners... The skyline isn't bad at all! And now it will be even better. Great news for KL
