The growth of modern tall building construction began in the 1880's, which has been largely for commercial and residential purposes, inUSA particularly in Chicago and New York. Tall commercial buildings are primarily a response to the demand by business activities and tourist community which in need for city center hotel accommodations. Besides that, it also a prestige symbols for corporate organizations such as PETRONAS Twin Tower in Kuala Lumpur. The feasibility and desirability of high rise structures have always depend on the availability ofmaterials, the level of construction technology, and the state of development ofthe services necessary for the use ofthe building. As a result, significant advances have occurred from time to time with the advent ofa new material, construction facilities, or form of service. The purpose of this study is to determine the effective structural system for high-rise building structure, which is up to 600 meters height for Kuala Lumpur City Centre. The scope ofthis study involves research on those suitable structural systems for high rise building and later, most suitable one is going to be determined in order to be used for thatbuilding. The methodology involved within this research consists of three parts which are the conceptual planning, preliminary design (which involves manual calculation) and detailed design (which involves the used of computer software which is STAAD PRO for the purpose ofcalculating all the relevant data regarding this high-rise structures). In order to meet the architectural and clients requirements, various structural consultants chose the structural system according to the previous experience and approach. This study will be focused on the most effective structural system in terms of stability, human comfort, robustness and cost effectiveness. It will be the theoretical project based on the structural software applications. Based on the analytical and structural design results as well as obtained from computer analysis, the right selection ofstructural system will reduce the total drift ofthe building. Through this analysis, it is known that the framed tube system is more suitable for the building up to 600m high compared to rigid frame with shear wall.
