End of an era as Atria Shopping Centre faces redevelopment
By TAN KARR WEI


THE Atria Shopping Centre in Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya, will soon see a new look as there are plans for redevelopment.

The iconic structure has been around since the 1980s and was the talk of the town during its heyday, when it was occupied by the Kimisawa and Printempts department stores.

It was then taken over by Parkson Grand on one wing and individual retail shoplots on the other.


Coming down: If the plans come through, the food courts next to the mall will also be redeveloped.

The area was not without its controversies as the Piccadilly Disco located within the complex used to be a popular hang-out for teenagers and college students in the early 1990s.

The disco was famed for its afternoon tea dances and received as much attention for the frequent police raids on the outlet.

The discotheque with its main entrance at the side of the building has since been replaced by other businesses and is now a language centre.

As bigger shopping malls like 1Utama and Mid Valley came into the picture, Atria lost its appeal and became more of a neighbourhood mall servicing the surrounding offices and houses.

Even though the complex still manages to attract a sizeable crowd especially on weekends, the building itself has seen better days.

While the building was recently spruced up with a coat of paint on the exterior, the interior is still rather drab and in need of renovation.


Recent makeover: The exterior of the building was recently given a new coat of paint.

Talks of a proposed 33-storey building to replace the shopping complex first surfaced during the last general election in March 2008 and residents were up in arms over the development, citing potential traffic congestion in the area with such a high-density project.
At that time, both the Barisan Nasional candidate (incumbent Petaling Jaya Utara MP Chew Mei Fun) and the DAP candidate (current Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua) had spoken out against the development.

Damansara Jaya Residents and Owners Association president Yew Cheng Hoe said they had submitted a letter of protest to the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) after attending briefings with the developer.

Residents were told that the initial proposal for a 33-storey building on top of four levels of shopping podium and 3½ levels of basement parking had been scaled down to a 22-storey building with separate blocks of 12-storey buildings.

The plan also included the upgrading of the two food courts (currently run by the MBPJ) situated on both sides of the building, replacing these with multi-level carparks and a new food court.

“We’re not against development but the density of the proposed building is too high for a residential area and it will worsen the traffic congestion in our area,” said Yew.

Yew said a nearby mall that opened recently was already causing traffic jams in the area.

“We’re also concerned about the security of our area as the crime rate is quite high in Damansara Jaya,” he said.

Residents also requested for traffic and social impact assessments but have yet to be presented these documents.

Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua said the commercial area was located within a residential area and residents should have a say as to the type of development that would take place there.

“Any development should be moderate and not bring in additional traffic into the area,” he said.

He said the 33-storey building proposed was beyond the allowable plot ratio of 1:4 under MBPJ guidelines.

Both the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) and the project developer declined to comment on the issue.

Wow, the two rendering look great... If the new Atria is completed, it will provide welcome competition to Tropicana City and SStwo Mall, not to mention 1Utama and the Mutiara cluster!

Provide info on next course of action, developer urged
2009/08/06
Sheila Sri Priya


Residents staying near the collapsed Jaya Supermarket building are in the dark over plans for the area.

PETALING JAYA: It has been more than two months since the collapse of the Jaya Supermarket building at Section 14 here.

After having recovered from their initial shock, business operators, residents and visitors to the area are now demanding to know the next course of action and whether anyone would be held accountable for the incident.

The 12 families who were evacuated from their houses after the tragedy said they were happy to have returned home but they were in the dark over plans for the area.

A resident said the developer used to update residents on the progress of
the project before the tragedy but since the collapse, there had not been any news.


“We are pleased with the city council because they have been helpful since the day of the incident.

“But we are unhappy with the developer because they have been silent since the collapse and there had not been any meetings with residents to explain what’s happening and what will happen once the development starts again,” said a resident, who wished to remain anonymous.

Bukit Gasing assemblyman Edward Lee said everyone wanted to know what was going to happen next.

“The final report on the incident is ready and had been submitted to the mayor but we have not heard anything,” he said, adding that a meeting was being planned for affected residents soon with representatives from the council and developer.

The Project Consultant Team (PCT) for the Jaya Supermarket redevelopment project issued a statement on Tuesday that it had submitted its final investigation report to the authorities.

The PCT comprises DP Architects Sdn Bhd, civil and structural engineers Meinhardt (M) Sdn Bhd and project managers DLS Management (M) Sdn Bhd.

Joey Chua, 26, who works in the area, said the site of the collapsed building looked unsightly.

“But more importantly, why isn’t anyone held responsible for the incident? The tragedy had resulted in the loss of seven lives, shouldn’t someone be held responsible?”
Businessman Gobala Krishnan, 29, said the roads had become even more
congested after barriers were placed around the site.

“How long more will this continue?” he said, adding that shop operators were never informed about the demolition.

“We spend about 10 hours a day here but we were never notified about what was happening, not even through flyers.”

Another shop operator said they only knew that some work was being carried out on the building when they heard loud knocking sounds.

Muhamad Hanafiah Yahyah, 30, who works as an IT consultant in the area, said he had to rely on newspapers to know what was happening at the site.

“The public should be made aware of the full report and things have to moveprogress fast as it’s been months,” he said.

Another resident, who wished to remain anonymous, wanted the plastic barriers to be replaced with concrete ones to prevent motorcyclists from pushing them aside.

“We don’t want anymore tragedies to take place here.”

Meanwhile, Petaling Jaya City Council public relations officer Zainun Zakaria said the council had received the report prepared by the PCT but it was still waiting for the report from the Public Works Institute of Malaysia. (IKRAM).

Redevelopment of Atria Damansara pending market study
By By Melody Song of theedgeproperty.com
Monday, 02 November 2009 17:04

KUALA LUMPUR: OSK Property Holdings Bhd, the company tasked with the redevelopment of the Atria Shopping Centre in Damansara Jaya is going back to the drawing board.

The developer is working closely with a team of estate agents and consultants to examine market needs and conditions before deciding on concrete plans for the site, according to a source with OSK Property.

“There are quite a few major commercial projects in the vicinity including Tropicana City Mall, and upcoming projects like Glomac Damansara and the redevelopment of Damansara Uptown. We will need to examine whether there is a demand for a shopping centre with an office component here,” he said.

The source confirmed that the initial proposal for a 33-storey building on top of four levels of shopping podium and 3½ levels of basement parking had been scaled down to a 22-storey building with separate blocks of 12-storey buildings but this plan could change as well.

Nevertheless, a formal submission of building plans will be made to MBPJ by the second quarter of next year with construction of the building pending approval, said the source.

He added that Atria Shopping Centre, which was recently given a new coat of paint, is still operational, as are the food courts nearby. “We are not going to close Atria in the short term; there are still a lot of tenants there. Occupancy rate is about 70% presently,” he said.

The Atria Shopping Centre sits on approximately 5.5 acres of land in the busy suburb of Damansara Jaya. Residents of the area have expressed concern about the project, saying traffic congestion could worsen in the area.

Cool, they should start the Atria redevelopment ASAP as the place is slowly losing its lustre and customers to the newer community malls like Tropicana City and the upcoming SStwo... Heard that there will be an apartment block atop the new Atria, is that true?

Meanwhile, OSK Property's Tan said the proposed redevelopment of Atria Shopping Centre within the established Damansara Jaya enclave should start next year once the necessary approvals had been obtained.

According to Tan, the development order had been endorsed and the redeveloped Atria with a potential gross development value of up to RM1 billion, would feature a 4 storey podium and 2(two) 18-storey towers.

Damansara Jaya residents still fuming over Atria plans
By TAN KARR WEI
karrwei@thestar.com.my



DAMANSARA Jaya residents are unhappy that the planning approval for the proposed development at the Atria Shopping Centre site was renewed without their knowledge.

According to Damansara Jaya Residents and Owners Association (DJROA) president Datuk Yew Cheng Hoe, they only found out about the renewal when tenants of the shopping centre were given notices to vacate the lots.

“We’ve been asking for the Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) and Social Impact Assessment (SIA) from the developer since last year but we only received it this May,” Yew said.

Talks of redeveloping the iconic neighbourhood mall in Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya, first surfaced during the last general election in March 2008 and residents protested against the development, citing potential traffic congestion with such a high-density project.

The initial plan submitted to the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) was for a 33-storey building on top of four levels of shopping podium and 3½ levels of basement parking, which was eventually scaled down to 22 storeys.


Big plans ahead: The project also includes the car park and food court next to the post office, which is on state-owned land.

When the planning approval expired after a year, the developers applied for a renewal of the permit.

It was during a meeting with the developers in April 2009 that residents asked for the TIA and SIA.

“One of the conditions under the renewal of the planning approval was that no further decisions can be made unless they submit the TIA and SIA to us so that we can scrutinise it,” DJROA vice-president Ronald Ng said.

Ng said the developer had already submitted the TIA and SIA to MBPJ in September but residents never received a copy until May this year.

According to Billy Wong, an aide to Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua, the planning approval was renewed in July 2009 during the MBPJ One-Stop Centre meeting.

“However, one of the conditions of the approval was that no further decisions on the project could be made pending the submission of TIA and SIA to DJROA for their perusal and comments.

“This was not complied with when MBPJ approved the amended plans in March 2010,” he said.

He also said when the MBPJ renewed the amended plans in March for two 18-storey blocks from the original 33 storeys, a fresh application should have been submitted and a new noticeboard put up to inform residents.

Wong added that the developer had submitted their building plans for approval at the OSC meeting last month but was rejected because certain conditions were not complied with.

“We are also not pleased with the reports given to us. It’s vague and does not provide any additional details compared with the initial reports. There are no suggestions on how to improve the existing infrastructure and road system,” said Ng.

He said the traffic assessment should be done by a consultant appointed by the MBPJ and approved by the residents instead of by the developer.

“It was stated in the traffic report that traffic has gone down by 20% since an earlier report done two years ago and we find that hard to believe. We were not even aware of that report,” he said.

Ng said parking was a problem in the commercial area and having a high-rise building would worsen the situation.

Yew said they were also concerned that the development plans included the taking over of two pieces of state-owned land that were now used as a carpark and food court.

“If the land is still owned by the state, then why should the developer be allowed to include them in its development plans?” Yew asked.

He said residents did not like the idea of using the land to build a structure that would serve as the front entrance to the mall.

Wong was in agreement: “What we want to know is how the first planning approval was granted in February 2008 when the issue of the two pieces of government land have not been resolved.

“The proposal contains a privatisation element regarding the two pieces of land.”

Yew added that the association and its members were disappointed with the council because it had failed to keep residents updated on the progress of the development.

He also said no proper objection hearing was held that involved the residents and no proper signboards have been put up by the developer to inform the public about the project.

Pua hoped that the issue could be resolved amicably and all parties involved could have a proper discussion regarding the development.

“We hope that the developer will respect the residents and hear their views,” said Pua.

When contacted, MBPJ public relations officer Zainun Zakaria said the issue would be brought back to the one-stop centre committee meeting this month.

When contacted, the developer declined to comment on the matter.

The Atria Damansara Jaya probably will not start this year. Residents are very angry if the development include new components such as office or apartments.

Whereas the developer need to find ways how they can maximise the value of this potential property and earn returns to cover their cost for renovating this half-abandoned shopping mall.
