The name of this tower in Spanish, and I think other latin languages as well, does not sound very good. Let's just say it sounds kind of scatological.

Oh man, that would make the spire look disproportionately tall compared to the rest of the building. I wouldn't mind shorter spire as long as it goes well with the overall design but this... Well, we shall see...

after some quick research, RL typically refers to ASML. If anyone knows the exact elevation of the site let us know, but Kuala Lumpur is 56m asml, so the approximate height for now is 666m or 722-56.

From the linked map, the site is 56asml. It's a hillock where I don't know how much has been flattened or excavated to accommodate the structure. That means we don't really know where the lowest street level entrance will be. I suppose 666m is a good ballpark figure. Unless, some people in PNB realize what that number stands for.

I just realized, that not only there's a scatological connotations to the name in some languages; the height has some "devilish" connections in some cultures too.

PNB Menara Warisan Merdeka on track for completion by early 2021
Bernama May 20, 2019 14:14 pm +08

KUALA LUMPUR, (May 20): The construction of Permodalan Nasional Bhd’s (PNB) Menara Warisan Merdeka is on track for completion by early 2021.

It will house PNB group of companies, a retail mall, residential apartments and condominiums, as well as a commercial building.

President and group chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Rahman Ahmad said the construction of the 118-storey PNB118 Tower is underway at the 61th floor.

We expect 78 per cent of the building to be completed by year-end. The cost is within budget and we are not affected by the ringgit fluctuation as we have locked the cost with the contractor as it was a fixed-price contract,” he told reporters after the breaking of Ramadan fast here recently.

As for the existing PNB office building, he said PNB still has no plan on the 40-year-old building as it needs refurbishment.

“Once we’ve move to the new building, we will look at what we need to do with the building, make plans in order for it to generate income,” he said.

As part of its corporate social responsibility drive during Ramadan, PNB recently held the breaking of fast for over 150 children from four orphanages from Selangor.

The orphanages are Pertubuhan Kebajikan Ukhuwah Anak Yatim Islam dan Miskin Daerah Sabak Bernam, Sungai Besar; Pertubuhan Anak Yatim Miskin Daerah Kuala Langat, Banting; Rumah Siti Kadijah Anak-Anak Yatim Puteri, Klang; and Persatuan Jagaan Pertubuhan Pengurusan Agama Anak-Anak Yatim Sekendi, Sabak Bernam.

At the event, PNB presented “duit raya” of RM100 each to the children along with basis essentials, comprising a backpack and towel, besides a donation of RM10,000 to each of the orphanages.

“We hope the contribution would bring joy to the children and help ease their financial burden, as well as ensure their welfare, in addition to providing necessities for the four orphanages.

“We had also advised the children to persevere to excel in their studies and strive to do their best, despite their adversity,” Abdul Rahman said. — Bernama
