Photographer's Note

Kuala Lumpur display of two different architectural periods and styles: British Colonial Victorian railway old central station and the next generation architectural wonder in KL:
The building's name, Merdeka, also known as Merdeka 118 (means 'independence'in Malay), is inspired by its proximity to two stadiums: Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara. The spire of the building was completed in November 2021.

The building is expected to be finished by the end of 2022, and will become the tallest in Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

It will surpass the 632 m (2,073 ft) Shanghai Tower as the world's second-tallest building and structure by 47 m (154 ft), surpass the 451.9 m (1,483 ft) Petronas Twin Towers as the tallest building in Malaysia by 227 m (745 ft), and surpass the 461 m (1,512 ft) Landmark 81 as the tallest building in ASEAN by 218 m (715 ft), taking these titles by virtue of its 168.5-metre-tall (553 ft) spire. The building will also be the first in Malaysia to receive a triple platinum rating from worldwide sustainability certifications, including the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
