In the shadow of the tallest twin towers in the world rises a new and slender supertall. The NRY Architects-designed Four Seasons Place in Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) occupies a prominent position just a stone's throw away from the Petronas Towers, which were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004. It was announced in December that the 209-key hotel portion of the 65-storey mixed-use tower developed by Venus Assets will open in early 2018.

In addition to the swanky hotel component, the 343-metre skyscraper will also contain 242 Four Seasons private residences and 27 serviced apartments placed atop a five-storey, 300,000-square-foot luxury retail podium. A Cantonese restaurant and an all-day dining restaurant are among the project's four on-site eateries. Planned amenities include an executive lounge, spa, fitness centre, and rooftop infinity pool with unlimited views of Kuala Lumpur's far-reaching skyline.

A height-to-width ratio of approximately 10.5 makes the tower one of the most slender supertalls in the world. Recent photos highlighting the construction show the extruded form of the building taking shape as its tinted skin is applied. Four Seasons Place will overlook the 50-acre KLCC Park, a vibrant destination in the heart of the city overflowing with gardens, fountains, and waterfalls.
