FT Minister: Warisan Merdeka tower to be 118 storeys high

KUALA LUMPUR: The Warisan Merdeka tower will be 118 storeys instead of the initial height of 100 storeys, revealed the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry in Parliament on Wednesday.

Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin revealed that the building was 118 storeys in his written reply to Fong Kui Lun (DAP - Bukit Bintang).

Fong had asked Raja Nong Chik to state the conditions imposed on Permodal Nasional Bhd (PNB) before it could be granted a development order to build the tower in Jalan Hang Jebat, Kuala Lumpur.

In his reply, RaJa Nong Chik said one of the conditions was for the "design of the antenna on top of the proposed 118 storey building to be improved so that it is more attractive and suitable with the tower's facade.

"The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has yet to issue a development order for the construction project of the tower as applied by the developer, PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd," he said.
