KUALA LUMPUR: Keep calm, a building along Jalan Conlay is not collapsing. It's just the unusual design.
Photos of the still-under-construction YOO8 residence went viral on social media on Monday (Dec 23), with a caption claiming that it was about to collapse and was causing major traffic jams in the city.
However, a pamphlet of the building showed that the curve is intended and is simply a part of its design.
A spokesperson from the Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department also confirmed that they have not received any reports of a collapsing building.
KSK Land said the building’s unique design gave the impression it was tilted.
“Designed by RSP Architects KL, 8 Conlay features one of the world’s tallest twisted twin residential towers, called YOO8 serviced by Kempinski.
“Depending on the angle, the towers’ unique design will make them appear as if they are ‘tilted’.
“KSK Land, the developer of 8 Conlay, places safety and genuine care at the heart of its operations and works diligently to assess and assure all healthy and safety requirements are met and guaranteed, ” the company said in a statement to The Star.
