The mixed commercial development on Lot 185, 167, 176 and NEC (North East Carpark multi-level underground car parking facilities) at Jalan Persiaran KLCC consists of an 80 storey office tower with a height of 370 m, a 62-storey hotel and a 9-storey Podium. PAB are the local architects working in collaboration with Pelli Clarke Pelli on the office tower and sky restaurants on Lot 167.
• Developer: Cititower Sdn Bhd.
Cititower is a joint venture between Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company and KLCC Holdings, a wholly-owned company of Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS). Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment is a unit of the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA).
César Pelli is also the one that designed the Petronas Twin Towers.
Construction started in 2013 and the project is expected to be completed in 2020.
It is believed that the tallest building will have a height of 370 m. The CTBUH defines “supertall” as a building over 300 meters (984 feet) in height, and a “megatall” as a building over 600 meters (1,968 feet) in height. We’ve got ourselves another supertall here. Oxley Towers KLCC (341 m), Fairmont Kuala Lumpur (370 m), The Signature Tower @ Tun Razak Exchange (452 m) and Four Seasons Place Kuala Lumpur (342.5 m) are among the supertalls under construction in Kuala Lumpur. Not bad, eh? How many supertalls are under construction in Bangkok?!? Houston, or Bangkok, it seems we have a problem.
