PHOTOS: World’s Second Tallest Building Is Now Complete In Malaysia

The world’s second-tallest building, Merdeka 118 has now reached its maximum height and it’s a sight to behold, as pictures show.

Merdeka 118 topped out last month in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with the completion of the spire at its tip making the skyscraper a staggering 2,227ft (678.9m) tall.

The 118-storey building, which is set to open later in 2022, has knocked the 2,073ft(632m) high Shanghai Tower in China off its perch as the world’s second-tallest tower.

Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, however, is still No.1 at a whopping 2,717ft (828m) in height.

Merdeka 118 was designed to overlook Stadium Merdeka, pictured, which is known as the site of the declaration of independence of the country in 1957.

The exterior of the tower, which was designed by the Australian firm Fender Katsalidis Architects, is made up of triangular glass panels

Inside, the skyscraper covers over three million square feet (278,709 square metres) of floor area.

Its upper floors will feature an observation deck – set to be the tallest in Southeast Asia called ‘The View at 118’. It’s billed as a ‘must-visit attraction’.
