It has been 12 years since the opening of the Petronas Twin Towers in downtown Kuala Lumpur. So what's next?
Patchay.Com finds out this week that there are already plans to build several iconic buildings around the city centre and the surrounding outskirts of Mont' Kiara and Mid Valley City.
One of them is called "Ilham Baru", or simply IB Tower which will be built adjacent to the glamorous The Troika residences.
Interestingly, world renowned architect Foster+Partners are involved in both projects - Troika and IB, and will be designing another one for the Platinum Park project (where the crane stands on the right side of the picture below).
For now, site clearing is in progress and construction is expected to start soon.
