Here's a pic I took of the underrated and relatively unknown Bangunan AMFinance tower (Plaza Mbf) in KL.



Does anyone have a photo of the entrance? I used to think it was 210 m to the spire, but I think that measurement might be to the top of those rings even though the tip of the spire should count. Does anyone know the architects of the building?

Nah, I went in Dec 03. I should be returning though at the end of this year. I assumed the height was to the tip of the spire but some distance night shots I saw on this forum once showed that the spire appears to go quite higher than the roof of the nearby Menara Maxis, which is 212 m.

I think they got the inspiration for the design of this building from the Empire State... From a distance, it has pretty much a very similar outlook from the base all the way to the spire on top...

However, its more identical twin is the one in Melbourne, the BlueScope Steel Center on Collins St...

i agree with u regarding the inspiration from BlueScope Steel Center on Collins St:D i normally compare Melbourne's skyscrapers with KL's by using the
AMfinance building

Since DAY 1 ....... :rant: .....and they have to further make it looked really bad by that stupid logo :bleep:
The rings are something different... How many skyscrapers can boast of having three rings as part of the lighting? But they should change the color coordination because the colors remind me of Burger King at times... :)

As for the AmBank logo, its definitely hideous but at least can see the red sign in the distance... Another distance skyscraper to spot other than PTT, KLTower, and MBB...

Yes......I am not saying that they shouldn't have the litted up rings there but what I am referring to is the colour combi. They should just do all single colour be it red or yellow or blue or white and not a combi of diff colours. ;)

^^^ Oh yea.....all the nice towers next to Petronas are suffering because the twin towers stole the limelight from em. I've got many whom didn't know where is Menara Maxis despite it being physically linked to the towers and are its nearest neighbour. These people even contested that such tower do not exist as they only saw ther twins there! :lol:
