The Tallest in Malaysia

A new superstructure is set to displace the Petronas Twin Towers as the tallest building in Malaysia. The Exchange 106, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2018, the New Straits Times (NST) reported. It currently stands at 450 metres above ground. Upon completion, it will tower at 492.3 metres, the height equivalent of 112 floors. This is some 40 metres taller than the Petronas Twin Towers, which stand at 451.9 metres.

The Exchange 106 is developed and owned by Mulia Property Development Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Indonesia’s Mulia Group. Located in the Tun Razak Exchange, it has a land area of 148,896 sq feet and will feature 106 floors and six basement levels. According to the Mulia website, it will boast a 15-metre grand lobby, almost three million sq feet of lettable space and 2,116 car park bays. It will also have a sky lobby and a 48-metre, 12-storey high LED-illuminated glass crown at its peak. 

In addition, the building may rightfully claim for the title of one of the most comfortable in the world - its unique climate control system provides a comfortable temperature in all places of the skyscraper, regardless of the floor. It will be possible due to nine Sondex heat exchangers and 7200 automatic balancing valves AB-QM, which equalize the supply of water and heat to all parts of the building. Exchange 106 is certified according to the GBI and LEED environmental construction standards.

Tenants are expected to move in by the third quarter of 2018.
