Ilham Tower

Ilham Tower (also known as Ilham Baru Tower, or abbreviated to IB Tower) is a premium Grade A office building  located at Jalan Binjai near the famous Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The tower has 58 floors it is 274 metres (899 ft) tall. It was completed in 2015 and is the fifth-tallest structure in Malaysia. Ilham Tower is within walking distance of Ampang Park LRT station. Ilham Tower office suites occupy 29 floors on the lower portion, centred on a dramatic three-storey atrium, with hotel serviced apartments above—these two functions have individual entrance lobbies at the ground level on either side of the building. The tower also houses an art gallery, commercial units and recreational facilities, as well as penthouses at the very top, which are oriented for the best views of the city centre skyline.

Building Features:

The tower features a large open sky terrace, which reaches up 40 metres in height and provides al fresco dining options and uninterrupted city views. This is made possible by the tower’s innovative, self-bracing diagrid structure. A void was created to house the sky terrace by pulling back the façade of the 30th to 40th storeys. Steel structures were used for part of these floors, and weight was distributed via hanging columns anchored on the 41st floor, with each floor supported by the one above it. The construction of the structural system was one of the main challenges due to its height and minimal installation space.
