That awkward moment when to be the tallest building in the country, it needs to be over 700 meters tall.
What's akward about that?

Nah. Nothing really awkward. Just a figure of speech.

Btw while this one seemingly will took some time to materialize, it will make KL skyline look even more imbalanced.
All the new supertalls in KLCC area (3 of them, with a potential another one) + this megatall are all clumped at the east side of the twin towers, while currently there is no supertall planned to the west of the twins.
It would be ideal for the Petronas towers to be the epicenter of the supertall cluster..

Hope another 3 Signature Skyscrapers, Signature Tower @Kampung Baru,Signature [email protected] BBCC,& Signature Tower [email protected] Metropolice still on going!
And some fancy skyscrapers, including those based on the cartoon shows. Including Menara Upin & Ipin and Menara Boboi Boy.

These two would be comparable to other fancy megatall skyscrapers of the world, including Sailor Moon Tower, Quake Tower, Half-Life Tower, DOOM Tower, Descent Tower, FreeSpace Tower, Starlancer Tower, etc.

so sad how the park in front of the petronas towers used to be large kinda like singapore's botanical garden vibe but it keeps getting smaller and smaller. trees chopped down at night. if it gets any smaller itll be a joke. but this is KL development is put before everything. nothing can stand in its way. hopefully some more trees will be planted at the ground level of this.

KL's Taman Tugu(National Monument Park) probably half the size of downtown Singapore,KLCC Park was meant to be an aesthetic park created to enhance the viewing point of Petronas, its totally not comparable to Sg's botanical garden,but more so to KL's botanical garden which is part of the Taman Tugu. KLCC Park owned by Petronas ,so they can do whatever they want to.They can build another Petronas in the middle of the park if they wanted to.

Isn't there an oversupply of office space in KL?

Why build this when Plaza Rakyat is still abandon

It 's hard to say about the oversupply situation.

It also goes down to marketing effort, product positioning, and many other factors. It is not just about supply.

True, in a bigger scheme of things, KL is dangerously oversupplied with office spaces.

BUT, there are also brand new development that performs very well. KL Eco City is well tenanted, the upcoming Pavilion Damansara Height towers (there are 7 of them!!) and office spaces are selling well. The newly opened Menara Equatorial Plaza is also very well tenanted and on its way into 100 % occupancy.

The thing is, when owner wants to build office tower, it has to come in tandem with solid marketing effort, and they must go out of their way to secure tenant. Surprisingly many office tower owners (and mall owners too) took this for granted. They simply subscribed to the old adage " Built, and they will come".

KLCC Property also says that they are not speculative builder but instead, will only proceed once anchor tenants are secured for their tower so I have faith that the building will be utilised well. They must have had some guarantee before pouring hundreds of millions (if not billions) of RM for these kind of project.

^^ Which I agree should be the way, I don't mind if this tower M will take few years before starting construction

What we don't want is empty skyscrapers because of the "Build it and they will come" worst, you could end up with a stalled construction

Over supply of office space mainly comes from the older offices are not up to modern office requirements. Newer Class A offices supply are quite healthy in demand. That leaves the not up to date ones to see less and less occupants.

Anyhow, Plaza Rakyat and this tower are totally different developers, so the question of neglecting one over the other is quite irrelevant. Even so, this tower is slated for construction only in many years to come.
