Come 2012, Kuala Lumpur's skyline will change dramatically. It will have the tallest Four Seasons Hotel in the world.

After 3 years of delay, KL will finally build the RM2.5 billion Four Seasons Place next to the world's tallest twin buildings, the Petronas Towers.
Despite the gloomy economic outlook, the project, which is backed by 2 tycoons and a royalty, announced today that a revised design of a single 65-storey building will stand in between Menara Maxis and Wisma Central.
(Last year, the plan was to build a 60-storey residential tower and a 38-storey hotel.)
(Final, with extra height!)
It comprises three components: (1) Four Seasons Hotel and (2) Residences and (3) an extension retail mall of Suria KLCC. The development will be the world's tallest Four Seasons.

Coincidentally, construction work has also commenced on a 60-storey office tower on the other side of the Petronas towers.
Codenamed "Lot C", it is a Grade A office tower located in between the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and the Petronas.

The podium of the office tower will host (another) extension of the Suria KLCC mall.

Like other major shopping malls in Klang Valley, Suria KLCC will in future integrate new shopping areas.
Perhaps a differentiation called Suria Old Wing and Suria New Wing (lol).
Well, this is KLCC perspective skyline come 2012.
