I didn't know there's a pool nearby.

With a heritage stadium, an indoor stadium and that aquatic place right in the smack of the city, this one has so much potential to be a very unique sporting arena underneath that megatall unicorn tower.

KUALA LUMPUR: The construction of the first phase of the Warisan Merdeka development, which consists of the Merdeka PNB118 iconic tower, is well under way.

In a statement on Friday, PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned unit of Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), said the project was proceeding within budget, on schedule and on track for completion in 2020.

PNB Merdeka Ventures said to-date, the piling and foundation works for the 118-storey tower and the perimeter diaphragm wall for the main car park had been completed.

“Currently, the diaphragm wall work for the car park beneath the linear park is in progress, while the excavation works and the bore piling works at the car park area has been completed at the stages of 25% and 60%, respectively,” it said.

The preparation works for the raft foundation of the iconic tower were proceeding with 30% of the raft reinforcing steel placed to-date, PNB Merdeka Ventures said.

It said the next major milestone for the project will be the placement of the concrete for the main tower raft foundation next month.

“The concrete placement will be one of the largest raft concrete pours in the world, consisting over 18,000 cu metres of concrete placed continuously over approximately a 48-hour period,” it said. - Bernama

Can't speak about the exterior but main structure have been increased by one floor.. Layouts for vendors being updated as we speak.

massive project but not a big fan of the design, majority of KL population also not too fond of the architecture … its not ugly but not inspiring and lack originality.
I agree. Its design is not quite architectural. I'm sure the rhombic composition is of a special meaning to the decision maker, so it's a rather one-man's-dream-design.

We'll have to see how this one turns out. It could look very nice or very out of context. Time will tell. At the same time, I'm very excited to see this tower start rising hopefully soon!:banana:The Petronas Towers have been the tallest in the city long enough, it's time for their record to be broken (their designs are timeless though).

Tradewinds Tower probably lost the race to beat the Twin Towers
