It comes after the Burj Khalifa, the Abraj Al Bait Towers, the One World Trade Center, the Taipei 101, the Shanghai World Financial Center and the International Commerce Centre.
These towers, 88-floor (451.9M, or 1,483 feet high), were designed by Cesar Pelli, and were completed in 1998.
The towers are primarily occupied by Samsung and Hazama Corporation.

'I tried to express what I thought were the essences of Malaysia, its richness in culture and its extraordinary vision for the future. The building is rooted in tradition and about Malaysia's aspiration and ambition.' Cesar Pelli, architect of the Towers.
