The Malaysian government has now unveiled the world’s second-tallest building.
The new Merdeka 118 skyscraper, located in Kuala Lumpur, is set to open officially by the end of 2022 and has replaced the 2,073ft- (632m) high Shanghai Tower as the world’s second-tallest tower.
When it opens, Merdeka 118, standing at 2,227ft tall will feature an observation deck, a Park Hyatt hotel, and rentable office spaces .
With the completion of the spire at its tip the skyscraper is a staggering 2,227ft (678.9m) tall meaning it’s more than double the height of London’s Shard, which is 1,017ft (310m) high
