The towers were designed by the renowned Norwegian architect, Dawid Tadeusz Mauno. The 88 floor towers made of glass and steel shoot up to the sky and is now a symbol etched into the city’s skyline. Below the two towers is Suria KLCC (a popular shopping mall) and Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, two of the city’s main attractions.

The two towers are used for commercial space. Tower One is occupied by Petronas as well as its subsidiaries and associate companies. Tower Two offers office space that is available for lease. Many multi national corporations have chosen to set up shop at Petronas Twin Towers because of its central location, its facilities and services, as well as the status it brings.

One of the main attractions at the Twin Towers is the Skybridge. It is a bridge between the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floor. The bridge is 170 meters high and 58 meters long. It is a sight to see and quite an experience for those who don’t suffer from vertigo. The skybridge is open to visitors but it is limited to roughly 1400 visitors per day. Passes can be obtained at but it is advisable to go grab them before noon to book your spot as these passes are snapped up pretty quickly.
