CTBUH says here as starting 2030.

Tower M, a 145-Story Skyscraper, is Planned for Kuala Lumpur

Construction of the office tower atop a retail podium will commence on a four-acre (1.6-hectare) site near Jalan Binjai in Kuala Lumpur after 2030.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 23 August 2019



The Petronas Twin Towers, may lose its title as Malaysia’s tallest building(s), when The Exchange 106 and Menara PNB 118 are completed in Kuala Lumpur. However, its owner, KLCC Holdings, plans to regain its crown through the construction of a 700-meter building known as Tower M within the Kuala Lumpur City Centre development.

Construction of the office tower atop a retail podium will commence on a four-acre (1.6-hectare) site near Jalan Binjai in Kuala Lumpur after 2030. The gross development value of the yet-to-be-named skyscraper is estimated to be between RM3.7 billion (US$883 million) and RM4.2 billion (US$1 billion).

When asked for his comments, Zerin Properties CEO Previndran Singhe praised the proposed development, stating, “It is a fabulous idea. By 2030 to 2035, the city will have developed further. KLCC Holdings is looking ahead and will help make KL and Malaysia a commercial center for Southeast Asia.”

“This is foresight. Without a doubt, the proposed development will do well. It will beckon conglomerates from China and the West to Southeast Asia.”

Data from the CTBUH Skyscraper Center ranks the Petronas Twin Towers as the 12th-tallest building in the world.

Rising 454 meters and over 103 levels, the aptly named Exchange 106 will trump the 452-meter, 88-story Petronas Twin Towers by the end of this year. But it could, in turn, be relegated to second spot when the 630-meter tower known as Menara PNB 118 is completed in 2024.

Another skyscraper, known as the Tradewinds Tower, standing at 608 meters, could also illuminate the Kuala Lumpur skyline. However, construction seems to have stalled on this development.

The tallest twin structures in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, are expected to retain that status for the foreseeable future.

Asked to confirm plans for Tower M, a spokesperson for KLCCH stated that the proposed tower has been designed to soar up to 700 meters tall, and that it will be built on Lots L, L1, and M next to the MRT KLCC East Station. The number of floors has not yet been officially released.

Postponing something for more than ten years practically means cancelling it. What they are saying is that they can't build it in the foreseeable future, and so they won't fund it either. Saying "we will begin in 2030" just means "We won't build it now, but we don't want to outright say we're cancelling it either". When 2030 arrives, it'll be more than ten years since any news were given, and the entire project quietly forgotten. By then, it might be more acceptable to use the plot for something else without losing face.

It's under planning now and they have started the construction on the plots, piling etc. So it's basically progressing.

145 floors? Nothing says 21st century more than the sole number of floors the thing will have.
I really like the design, great proportions, not too thin, nor too thick. Playful design, elegant in the same time. Overall, another great project.

As a Malaysian I have no doubt the tower will be built. We love all things huge here. There will be people who call it a waste, uneconomical, etc2. But it will get built anyway. More so because it’s by KLCCP. They hate their Petronas Twins being eclipsed by other towers in KL.

Its complicated. I understand what is happening, but I don't know how to explain it in detail. KLCC do plan on building the tower. If not, they won't go through the trouble of burying those very deep pillings. They prepping the empty lots because the MRT project might have disturbed some of their future plans on developing the area. Its like KLCC is telling MRT Corp "Okay you can build your station and subway tubes here, but make sure they don't take too much space bcos we don't want to waste our plots." I also suspect that they piled early to avoid damaging the MRT tubes in the future.

Everything we know about this project came from their website, little birds, and property magazines. Considering KLCC's credibility, I believe they will build something impressive on that lot by 2030-35 but who knows whether that project will reach 700m or not.

It’s reassuring that the KLCC Property boss herself confirmed that KLCCP is building a “super tower”.

However no timeline was given by her. And she did mention that the massive feat of piling with BG72 (the first in the world) has to be done now together with the construction of the nearby underground MRT, so as not to disturb MRT structural integrity in the future as the “super tower” is being built.

Glad to see KLCCP’s commitment.
So the “super tower” is being prepared, but I reckon it will be years before it will actually rise.

It must be noted that Merdeka 118 took 6 years before the first level rise above ground.
It’s also noteworthy that unlike this project, Merdeka 118 was never once referred to as “super tower”.

I have high expectations

She also said normal 40-50 storeys building would only need about 60m of pilings. Does that mean they are planning a 40-50 floors building but with piles about twice as deep for support because they don't want the construction to affect the MRT system?
Or are they really going for a much taller structure that needs pilings that deep to support the heavier load plus not disturbing the MRT? I hope it's the second option for I think her statement is quite ambiguous.

Isn’t that mentioned 145 fl already? Why still asking? Or you can’t see the title ?
