KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 10): Metronic Global Bhd has won an audio visual and information technology system subcontract, worth RM18.7 million, for Permodalan Nasional Bhd's (PNB) 118-storey Warisan Merdeka skyscraper project.

In an exchange filing today, Metronic said the subcontract was awarded by Samsung C&T Corporation UEM Construction JV Sdn Bhd (formerly known as KL 118 Tower Sdn Bhd) to its wholly-owned subsidiary Metronic Engineering Sdn Bhd (MESB) on Aug 29.

MESB is principally involved in the business of providing system integration specialising in the field of intelligent building management system, integrated security management system and audio visual system, e-project management of mechanical and electrical services and supply of engineering systems.

The group said the contract is expected to contribute positively towards its earnings and net tangible assets for the contract period.

Shares in Metronic Global finished 0.5 sen or 7.7% higher at seven sen today for a market capitalisation of RM79.28 million.

RL = MSL/ASL. So it's only a few meters shorter.

722-66 (Kuala Lumpur MSL) = 656m

Building height is measured from lowest street entrance to the building. Even if the MSL to the lowest entrance is 40m. It's still 722m - 40m = 682m

We will see.

right, that bit slipped my mind. Should be that. We'll have to wait to see what the CTBUH says the lowest entrance is. Their measurement with TRX 106 is still weird as of now.

For the old shophouse a few posts earlier yes it would be great to refurbish them and make the street a pedestrian one, but I find the SG example excessive on the paint job, that dark blue and golden paints would fit better next to Versailles castle
And no, no ad blocker that Konica film ad is collector, I'm sure only a handful survived the last 10 years.

That's why you are just a foreigner in our city. That area just a ghetto gathering place for all the foreign labors from Pakistan, Indon, Nepal, Vietnamese, Cambodian, India and will be even more crowded during the Public holidays. In Singapore they have the similar ghetto places for labors also. But things will not the same again once BBCC, PNB118 and Plaza Rakyat completed. You dont hav to worry about that.

In every city in this world, there are places that never sleeps, places that closes down by 10pm, and yes, ghettos. Every. Single. City. In this world. Chinatown and Kasturi Walk are one of those places that closes down at 10pm everyday. That area is full of old folks running hundred years old shops and they are not ready to open their shops all day. At least not yet. Once this project is wrapped, and they pass the baton to younger generation, the development wave will sweep through the surrounding so you can expect those shops you called 'crappy' to become like those Singaporean shoplots. Same thing happened to Bukit Bintang, Bangsar, Ceylon Hill, etc and it will happen to that area. You were just there at the wrong moment. Come back again after everything is done.

Hey I was not trying to criticize this, I just wanted to express my surprise, because I just walked through that part of town on a Saturday evening and with the old market next to it, all the stands under tarpaulin and lights off I thought it was like a traditional old market selling food etc, while in fact it's a very modern looking shoping street during the night.
I walked nearly 30kms in KL during that day, so don't worry I've seen much more than this area at night time

Lol I'm not even Vietnamese, you should stop that "VN vs Malaysia" or "SG vs KL" mindset you seem stuck in because of the TRX thread.
I went to Malaysia several years before I first went to Vietnam, it was the first country I visited in Asia. In August I had to get out of Vietnam for my visa and I decided to take the occasion to go salute the Petronas towers, as it has been nearly exactly 20 years since my first visit. I went there just for the weekend guys, not to steal a job :P

And before you talk down on (some) VN people for beeing poor and looking for jobs abroad, imagine how your country would be if it had been through the same shit than Vietnam.

Seems like you can just twist and turn in just few sentences. You were saying you felt crappy earlier and now you said it’s a very modern shopping street. And local folks like myself won’t even think it’s modern. The Pudu area is the most ghetto place in KL.

And no one is saying you are a Vietnamese and no one here looks down on Vietnamese people here as well. You are the one starting all these thing. One more time you will be banned here. Last warning.
