Merdeka 118​

The newly opened Merdeka 118 towers over the center of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, at 679 meters in height. The building was designed by Fender Katsalidis, an architectural firm based in Melbourne, Australia, and constructed by Samsung C&T Construction and Engineering Group. The structure itself stands a little over 500 meters tall, and it is topped by a spire that adds a further 160 meters. There are a total of 118 stories, with five below ground, and the total floor area is 673,862 square meters in size — equivalent to the combined area of 94 soccer fields.

The tower is a large, complex facility that is expected to contain offices, high-end hotels, and shopping malls. As the crowning achievement, an observatory with a panoramic view over Kuala Lumpur will be installed on the top floor. This last touch is expected to make the Merdeka 118 a world-class landmark.
