The Exchange 106 to be Tallest Building in Malaysia until KL118 is Completed

December 26, 2017

Malaysia will have a new tallest building with the completion of The Exchange 106 at Tun Razak Exchange in the second quarter of 2018.

The building’s superstructure has already been completed and is now 450m above ground, which is almost the same height as the 451.9m Petronas Twin Towers.

At 492.3m, The Exchange will feature 106 floors and eight basement levels upon completion. It will have three million sq ft of lettable area and up to 34,000 sq ft of column-free office floor plates, which are designed for open plan interior configurations and flexible layouts.

Owned and developed by Mulia Property Development, which is a unit of Indonesia’s Mulia Group, the building will have Green Building Index (GBI) certification as well as MSC status.

The group said that it had secured substantial leases for the space, with tenants expected to move in by the third quarter of next year.

The Exchange 106, however, will enjoy the title of Malaysia’s tallest building for only a short while since the Merdeka 118 PNB is set for completion by 2019.

Being developed by Permodalan Nasional Bhd, the 118-storey Merdeka 118 PNB will stand at 600m upon completion, effectively making it the world’s fifth tallest building.
