Facts

  • From 1996 to 2003 this tower shared the world's tallest building title with Petronas Tower 2.
  • The architectural and engineering team was chosen on the basis of its experience with the Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle, a world's-tallest proposal from Chicago with a narrow concrete structure that was very similar to the Petronas design.
  • The security system includes a card access and alarm monitoring system, closed circuit television, a voice intercom, and a photo ID system.
  • The two towers have a total of 76 lifts, including 29 double-decker high speed passenger lifts in each tower. Each double-decker elevator can carry 26 persons.
  • The total construction costs for the two Petronas Twin Towers amount to $1,600,000,000.
