reinforced concrete, and because of the extra weight the buildings’ foundations

notable feature is the Skybridge, which connects the buildings at the 41st
and 42nd floors.  It is the
highest in the world, and is not actually connected to the buildings.  Designed by Italian architect Cesar Pelli,

hassle, though; and the wait is usually long. The KL Tower offers an equally good view of the city, and is more
