Yup... Both Amcorp Suites and Menara MPPJ (around 27 floors each) have been dethroned... After so many years, the title of PJ's tallest building has finally left PJ State and gone to the Damansara Perdana boomtown!

Btw, here's another set of PJ Updates!
- A 20-storey office complex is proposed to be built on the site where Giant Paramount (a former cinema converted to hypermarket) is located.
- Opal Damansara semi-D condo's (what the...?) construction has started, the building currently has less than five floors.
- Pelangi Astana condo (next to Pelangi Damansara condo) near Mutiara Damansara has reached its halfway point, around 18-storeys.
- There is still no news as to what will be built on the site where the former Sentosa Cinema once stood (that PJ landmark was destroyed in a fire in 2000, if i'm not mistaken).
- Another project with no news as well is the final phase of Damansara Uptown... This will comprise a large shopping mall and a 45-storey office tower (the future tallest one!).

U know lah, Am must have wanted that project to follow its corporate colors... So off goes the white and blue, and now the whole place becomes yellow and red...

Yeah, Armanee grew very fast during this 1/2 year period... I took a pix of that building in July 2004 and it was only around halfway... Feb 2005 showed a topped-up tower with roof structure being constructed... Amazing growth!

I'll have more pix to put here soon... Have to transfer the photos to my photobucket account 1st... Please bear with the wait!

Speaking of PJ's tallest, i'll try to recall that particular building for a certain period of time and area...

Early until late 70s: Hotel Jaya Puri, 11-storeys (now Hilton PJ West Wing)... I remember that the 18-storey Uni. Hospital (UMSC) Tower Block was constructed sometime in the mid-70s... Forgot the exact year though (that would have been the tallest until Hilton East Wing was completed)...

1979 - 1988: Hotel Jaya Puri tower, 22-storeys (Hilton PJ East Wing)

1988 - 1998: Menara MPPJ, 27-storeys

1998 - 2004: Amcorp Serviced Suites, 28-storeys

Present day: Armanee Terrace Duplex Condo, 36-storeys

As you can see, from way back in the 70s, PJ's tallest was within or near the State area... Armanee Terrace's topping-up has resulted in the title going away from State and towards Damansara Perdana...

Wow, that Rhythm Avenue project is still abandoned? Such a waste... Are there plans to resume the construction?

Btw, here is a quick PJ update:
- The Vista Damansara (that large, halted condo project in Kg. Kayu Ara behind the Shell station) construction work has resumed! I saw the crane of the one topped-up tower removing scaffolding... Apparently the walls are being painted white!

That Armanee Terrace dosen't look so tall in the pic. The Perdana Emerald even look talller than it. The name of the residential in USJ sound a bit weird but nice

Amcorp Suites, i think the giant logo spoit the building..same thing happen in KL, Menara Ambank..Luckily they didn't paint the Menara Ambank like the Amcorp Suites, But i think they won't, coz the material which they used to built Menara Ambank is not concrete, i think

IJM to complete PJ eight in 3 years

BY ELAINE BOEY

IJM Properties Sdn Bhd expects its latest RM250mil signature development PJ eight to be completed in three years, said IJM Corp Bhd managing director Datuk Krishnan Tan.

Intended to reinvigorate Petaling Jaya's (PJ) central business district that is considerably deserted at night, the project offers an all-in-one concept of home, office and dining facilities,” he said.

With a total land area of 860,000 sq ft, PJ eight comprises three office blocks of 12, 13 and 17 storeys respectively, and a 39-storey apartment block.

“The apartment block will be PJ's tallest building,” Tan said during a media launch yesterday.

PJ eight’s name comes from its location at Section 8, more commonly known as PJ New Town.

Tan said with more than 1,100 parking bays, PJ eight would not face parking problems well known in its locale that faced the Federal Highway, opposite the PJ Hilton hotel.


IJM Properties Sdn Bhd latest project 'PJ eight', located in PJ New Town

“Elevated six metres above ground level, it will have its own serenity despite facing the highway,” he said, adding that it would have four entry and three exit points to ease accessibility.

The project, on 3.9 acres, will be jointly developed by IJM Properties, the property division of IJM Corp, and land owner Idaman Harmoni Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Mega First Corp Bhd.

According to Tan, the 12-storey and 13-storey office blocks are already booked and “a lot of interest has been generated from signboards alone.” A public preview of the office suites will be held on May 14-15 and its apartment suites will be launched in August.

PJ eight’s 12-storey office suites, priced from RM390 per sq ft, offers built-up areas of 1,500 to 4,000 sq ft. The apartments range from 668 sq ft one-bedroom suites to 5,000 sq ft penthouses and are priced from RM350 per sq ft.



Tan said construction work was expected to start next month and “will be completed on time with fantastic quality.”

“We also focus on post completion maintenance to ensure capital appreciation for buyers,” he added.

PJ eight features a half Olympic-sized pool, squash and tennis courts, gymnasium, barbeque pits and state-of-the-art access card security system.

I think u can say so lor... But at least the place is not considered as deserted at night since the nearby cafes and al-fresco restaurants are popular eateries... Always full of ppl around dinner time...

As for that PJeight development, this one will revitalize that part of PJ State opposite Hilton... At least it is a nice complement to Hilton's guests who will have more choices of food outlets nearby! Apparently construction is going to start next month...

Cool, at least we PJrians are getting another new skyscraper that we can call a landmark!
