MRT 2 -KLCC East Station is going to complete pretty soon.

If I’m a smart developer or land owner, I will develop that plot of land earlier than the CitiTower. May be the mall and Office tower will be built first and also the Fairmont hotel, but not the Citi Tower though.

Holy moly, if the piles are 150m, then that structure is either a massive complex sustaining thousands or a massive 1km tall skyscrapers... KL is going to be Dubai in 20 years, ladies and gentleman!

While Penang is turning to Panama City (yeah all residential skyscrapers)...

Oh btw, after making some small research, i found out:
The piles of the Jeddah Tower in KSA that Bauer also made was ONLY 110m max. while majority of the piles are 89m. So yeah, if the piles are 150m in depth, it's interesting what in the world they are constucting. Reckon that only time is the answer!

One would argue that in the 90s KL was the original Dubai. There were lots of hypes in western media about the inevitable rise of Asia as evidenced by the construction boom in KL during that period.

Shouldn't compare this project's piling with pnb118. Remember how PTT project elaborated how they encounter piling problems early on because the site is sitting on decayed limestone bedrock. Original PTT site is around Symphony Lake but they shifted to the current final site so that both towers standing on harder bedrock. PNB118 is sitting on a hill with solid bedrock so its piling depth is shallow. But I suspect that Tower M site is on the very same limestone bedrock that PTT avoided. Luckily our technology has gone further than during 1996 so it is possible to build a megatall there.

Iirc, PTT had some piles down to 200m.
Seems they went to max 115m.

Is 1 reason why KLCC has it's nice park is due to the limestone bedrock problem?

it has a nice park because they hired professional landscape architects to design the park, not simply 'tanam-tanam' like other ordinary architects would do

The park should be regarded as masterpeace..it was designed by master landscaper the late Roberto Burl Marx..he is a landscape version of Frank Lloyd Wright.And KLCC Park is his last project.

Nope...believe it or not, the park was the original idea to redeveloped the Selangor Turf club and not the twin towers.

So the creation of the park are essential and took precedence of the entire KLCC project.
