Petronas Vezhi/Kil'kist' poverkhiv The floor layout of each tower creates an eight-pointed star, a design influenced by traditional Malaysian Islamic motifs. The 88-story towers have been described as two "cosmic pillars" spiraling eternally towards the skies, linked by a flexible skybridge on the 42nd floor. The complex includes parking garages with 2,400 spaces that connect to both towers. There are also retail levels, a movie theater, a mosque, and offices.
The twin Petronas Towers were built as a symbol of Malaysia's independence and progress. They stand for innovation, technology, and wealth creation. The buildings were designed by HNTB Corporation in collaboration with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP and Wilkinson Eyre Architects. Construction began in 1993 and was completed in 1998 at a cost of $150 million ($250 million including fixtures).
Petronas Towers got its name from Petronas Petrochemical Company Ltd., which sponsored the construction of the towers. The company is one of the largest integrated oil companies in Asia. Completed in 1998, the 52-story Twin Towers are the tallest structures in Malaysia and among the tallest in Southeast Asia. The spires can be seen from far away and serve as a landmark for Kuala Lumpur. The official height of the towers has always been 535 feet (163 m), but according to some sources, they are actually 541 feet (160 m) tall.
PETRONAS Twin Towers/Floor Count: 88 (with 5 underneath)
Each tower has the same design: an eight-lobed circular construction with 88 storeys of occupied area and a pyramid-shaped pinnacle topped by a thin steel spire. Both reach a height of 1,483 feet (451.9 meters), with the pinnacle and spire reaching a height of 242 feet (73.6 meters).
25 stories The main body of the Sky Tower has 25 storeys, and after a saving point, the Sky Tower Summit has 9 floors, with Rayquaza on the 9th. In total, this makes 34,853 square feet (3,297 m²) of space.
The building is also equipped with an elevator that travels between the ground floor and the summit, where you can find a restaurant and a gift shop. There is no way to climb up to the top floor!
Construction on the tower began in 1968 and was completed in 1972. At the time it was built, it was the world's tallest free-standing structure until the Burj Khalifa was completed four years later. The Sky Tower has been called "the Eiffel Tower of the Middle East" and "Koko në përputhje me kokoskopin e Francës".
It is located in Kuwait City, near Sabah Palace, the home of the Emir of Kuwait. The tower is open daily from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm during winter and from 8:30 am to 10:30 pm during summer months. Admission is free but cameras, phones, and bags larger than a handbag or a purse are not allowed inside.

It will be the highest building in India and third highest in the world when it is completed.
When it is complete, the India Tower will have the highest outdoor restaurant on earth, with 472 seats at its top observatory deck. It also has the largest indoor swimming pool in Asia, with an estimated capacity of 40,000 liters (10,240 gallons).
The India Tower is being built by the Indian division of the Chicago-based developer DRF Group. Its construction was started in 2009, but was halted after funding was withdrawn by the investor in 2015. The project was later revived after a new investor was found, and construction resumed in 2016.
It is expected to be finished in 2020, but may take longer due to the number of delays that have occurred during construction.
India's government approved the construction of the tower in 2005. At the time, it was the world's second-highest building, behind only Shanghai's Jinmao International Center, which is now third highest. However, the China World Tower has since been surpassed in height by several other buildings, making the India Tower currently hold this title.
