What is the location of the building, related to the Twins?
The location of Plaza Rakyat should be towards the left of the skyline as shown in this pic. It will not be quite near to Petronas. My guess is that the CBD skyline will eventually have (1) Plaza Rakyat (2) KL Tower (3) Petronas (4) Empire Tower as main focal points (from left to right in this pic).

i kinda liked the old design better. the ball at the top made it more unique than this new generic box. And according to the proportions of that render, if this tower is indeed 400 meters than the floor plates are going to be massive. really really thick. Like tokyo's midtown tower like, completley oppressive but bigger still. the twins although massive in their own rights diffuse their bulk with the setbacks, with the many many sides each tower has. I preferred the old height too. saying i want a tower shorter rather than taller is not what im used to, but I like the focus of the city on theses twin beauties. They should be revered much like NYC reveres the Empire State Building and not haphazardly start to uproot their flow by building super tall bulky secondrate fare

Change In Concept Will Put Plaza Rakyat Development In Fast Track
May 8, 2006

Federal Territory Minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique

KUALA LUMPUR, May 8 (Bernama) -- A change from the "build, mortgage and ownership transfer" concept to directly selling Plaza Rakyat will bring faster progress to the delayed project, said Federal Territory Minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique.

The suggestion for change was put forward by the developer, Plaza Rakyat Sdn Bhd, to the ministry following its inability to cope up with the project using the original concept, he said.

"We find that the (new) concept would be able to help push the project, but the developer has to fulfil several conditions set by the ministry," he said in response to a question from Datuk Dr Lee Chong Meng at the Dewan Negara sitting here Monday.

The ministry, however, has yet to receive any feedback from the developer, he said.

Lee wanted to know what measures had been taken and will continue to be taken by the government to complete mega projects that have been abandoned in the city, including the Plaza Rakyat in Pudu, Bandar Wawasan at Jalan Sultan Ismail and Li Foong project at Jalan Changkat Thamby Dollah.

Zulhasnan said that among the conditions the developer of Plaza Rakyat would have to meet include the immediate settlement of loans amounting to RM60 million taken from the RHB Bank.

The developer would also have to get a release on the bank mortgage on the land which has been put up as collateral for the loans, as well as settle all debts with Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) arising from accumulated rental payments on the mortgaged land and assessment dues amounting to RM15.4 million.

Work on the Plaza Rakyat project, planned as an integrated public transportation centre, started in 1992 but it came to a standstill when the developer started facing financial problems following the economic downturn in 1997.

The ministry then took the initiative to resuscitate the project in view of it being a privatised project between DBKL and Plaza Rakyat Sdn Bhd. The developer had been given till May 2007 to complete the project.

I really really really want this to be built, sooner the better!! Another Supertall is great for the KL skyline. The Plaza Rakyat is also a transportation hub for Malaysian interstate buses and also provides LRT connections.

Completion of Plaza Rakyat delayed again



KUALA LUMPUR: Motorists counting the days till the congestion around Puduraya eases will have to wait a while longer.

The problematic integrated public transport hub, Plaza Rakyat, has been delayed yet again and it will not open next year as planned.

"We are still discussing whether to extend the developer’s contract or to get another contractor to complete the project as soon as possible," said Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Ruslin Hassan.

"Right now, only LRT Plaza Rakyat is complete. The rest of the construction is only half done. There is no way Plaza Rakyat can be finished by 2007."

In the contract extended in 2005, developer Plaza Rakyat Sdn Bhd was given until May 31 next year to complete construction.

The complex is meant to reduce the traffic snarl caused by hundreds of buses and taxis lining up at Puduraya by moving them to the new terminal.

Ruslin was unveiling the KL Hop-On, Hop-Off double-decker tourist buses for Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

The bus, with a pre-recorded commentary in eight languages — Bahasa Malaysia, English, Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, French and German — will take visitors around the city.

They can choose to stay on the bus for the full tour or hop off to visit an attraction and hop back on.

A 24-hour adult day pass costs RM30, RM17 for the disabled, students and senior citizens. Children under five travel free.

MyKad holders can buy the tickets for RM19 during the promotion period which will be announced later.
