The Exchange 106, which was formerly known as TRX Signature Tower, at Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) is on its way to becoming Malaysia's tallest new building upon its completion in 2018
Having already reached 450 meters above ground only 19 months into construction, it will soon surpass the height of the Twin Towers
Once completed, the Exchange 106 will have a height of 492.3 meters, becoming the tallest building in South East Asia (SEA)
The Exchange 106 will be completed by the second quarter of 2018, with tenants expected to move in by the third quarter of the next year, NST Online reports.
As the name suggests, the Exchange 106 will consist of 106 floors and have 8 basement levels. It will also have a sky lobby and a 48-metre, 12-storeyed high LED-illuminated glass crown at its peak.
The Exchange 106 will have Green Building Index (GBI) certification and MSC status, offering some of the latest in-building technology including high performance insulated glass, energy efficient MEP systems with Star rating, 100 percent LED lighting and state-of-the-art lift technologies.
The super tall Exchange 106 will also feature high ceilings finished in English Burlwood, marble floors and walls of the highest quality in the lobbies and common areas, and large column-free office floor plates of up to 34,000 sq ft with long spans, designed for flexible layouts and open plan interior configurations.
The building has just completed a reinforced concrete core wall
The company behind the construction, Mulia Property Development Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Indonesia's Mulia Group, said it will be completed by June 2018.
"The Exchange 106 entered into the limelight over the last 12 months, setting industry benchmarks for work methods, quality of materials and most noticeably, the speed at which it has progressed. Turning the mandate to work around the clock into an absolute advantage, site coordination has been refined into a well-oiled production-line efficiency," the company said in a statement.
According to the Malay Mail Online, the construction was initiated by the pouring of the mat foundation concrete continuously for over a weekend, which in return was recognised as the second largest continuous concrete pour in the world.
