No they haven't, from the pictures above we can see most of the glass has a protective film, it's peeled on just a couple of places.

I sure hope what's revealed from behind that film will be super reflective, because the whole point of the design revolves around the idea of reflecting surfaces.

Do you really expect it to look as bright and shiny as on those concept renderings?

With diamond as the main source of inspiration and from Fender Katsalidis' archives,im 99% sure this tower would shine like a disco ball

The models at KL City Gallery near the Merdeka Square

The scale of TRX 106 and Merdeka 118 is questionable though, since it’s a private business that sells gifts and not linked to the city hall..








Can you see Merdeka tower in this pic below?

I was there last 2 weeks. Yes the scale of some buildings are off and inconsistent in the various displays. Most obvious is seeing Telekom tower next to TRX 106. TRX looks about 500+ metres placed beside 310m Telekom at the all white models display. I suppose they took some liberties with the scales depiction for visual impact

Lol, those pillars are tall enough to be considered "high-rise structures" in their own right...

And if I'm not wrong, they are part of the new Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road project...

Is it the same EKVE expressway that will cut through Klang Gates quartz ridge aka KL’s Jurassic park?
Such a shame what we’re doing to our natural heritage over infrastructure
