I highly doubt this building can become a more prominent icon for Kuala Lumpur than the Petronas Towers.

agree. U can even put super beauty Shanghai Tower next to the Petronases, PTT will still be the more prominent one (they're like a bigger and finer version of Jin Mao tower times two!). But beauty wise individually, for me ST wins and it's current location now screams perfection!
Atleast we understand the struggle Karl Fender needs to endure when he got the job designing this tower. Late Pelli was legendary.

Lol, no building in Kuala Lumpur can ever upstage the Petronas Towers in terms of unique architecture... The new bunch are massively tall, yet simplistic blue towers when compared with the interesting design of the Twins - especially the iconic spires and that bridge!

Still, it will be cool to take a ride on that scenic elevator to the observation deck of PNB118, for amazing views of the city on the way up... Or if budget's not a problem, why not put up a night at the highest hotel in SE-Asia - the Park Hyatt Kuala Lumpur?

just came back from KL. The Petronas Towers have a certain gravity about them. Still as beautiful as ever.
Photos taken by me (yesterday).




Random shots of Merdeka 118 from different parts of KL.
I was just strolling around aimlessly and took these photos whenever I saw it..







Needless to say. It was a very hot day..

Back when I was in KL in mid-2001, I really felt that the Petronas embodied newer, modern, detailed skyscrapers to come. You really have to see the buildings up close to see how the arced sunshades, columns, and exterior finishing play off each other. Far more detailed than most standard US buildings. Visually from far it looks good, but close, you see details in the same vein as say, the Steinway Tower going up in NYC.

But yeah I agree, KL118 will still be a fantastic forward-focused addition to the skyline. It's neat to see the original Vision 2020 plan reach fruition, too, at least from my limited understanding.
