He said the top floor would be able to hold more than 50 people, and the view offered would be spectacular, especially at sunset.
The tower would also have a restaurant. Dr Mahathir said the idea of a tower for Langkawi was first discussed more than 20 years ago.
Datuk Abu Hassan Mohamed, executive chairman of Blackrock, the company undertaking the project, said that work to reclaim 28 acres (11.2ha) at the Kuah Beach will begin next month.
Construction will begin in March, and the tower is expected to be completed within 24 months, he said.
AL :-At last. After years of talking about the project kick-off. I'm 50-50 about the project. But its of course going to be a great spot for Photographer lovers... Hope the Construction company take into account the surrounding environment & follow the construction guideline. Hope the authority keep good track of all projects in Langkawi..
