There are a few highrises at Ipoh... may be the government's law to make sure the height would not affect the aeroplane... but this one is long time ago one.

Should relocate the airport as it is blocking the development of the city. A city without highrises does not reflect that it is the 3rd largest city (in term of population, with about 800,000) in the country.

A city without highrises is not such a bad thing, a lot of Ipoh sized European cities do not have "highrises". Its the utilization of space and real estate in Ipoh that matters. Whats up with that tall tower block by the Ipoh, Jelapang toll on the NS highway, it seems slightly out of place? Apart from the odd boring tallies in Ipoh town, I think Ipoh's low rise buildings have some of the most facinating architecture in Malaysia. Check out Ipoh railway station!!! I think its THE best looking train station in Malaysia. my 2 sen.

A city should have some unique buildings to attract attention and later turning into attracting more foreign investment. Tall buildings are the best to represent the attractions of a city.

Look at KL, it is now very famous after building the tallest twins in the world. Why NY and HK are so famous? Shanghai also get very lively after building a few talls in the Pudong area and more investment pouring into the city. Taipei also getting more international attention with the Taipei 101. AND now a lot people turning their attention to Dubai.

In terms of Feng Shui, tall buildings will attract some good fortune to a city especially money luck.

Actually Ipohan ourself also looking for more highrises for our city, since it was such a long time that the last highrise commercial building built here. The last one is PTTC Building near the Jelapang toll plaza.

Any big company are willing to build their highrise at Ipoh? You are welcome... We are looking for a building excess 20 storey...

Ipoh railway station and KL railway station are also nice... but Ipoh railway station are right at the most busy main street at Ipoh town centre and also with a flower garden... It may better if the fountain there is functioning like the old time.

LOL..ya you right they don't have much tall buildings as of now but these two also have had some high rises such as London bridge (although it is not tall as of now but it was one of the tallest in the world when it was built) and now London eye. Paris has this Eiffel tower and it was the tallest in the world. That's why they are very famous till now.

Does ipoh need a tall building to be a landmark? I personally think not. I can think of Vienna, Munich, Budapest, Barcelona, they don't have well known impressive high rises, what they are best known for are they're stunning low rise architecture and urban design.

Ipoh doesn't need tall buildings to be famous or successful. it needs to be famous and successful to have tall buildings

i agree with Subangite about this matter. European cities are good examples here.

as all of us here loves skyscrapers, of course having lots of skyscrapers is somewhat pleasing ha ha... i'm not saying Ipoh should not build highrises. my point is that it doesn't need it to be attractive, famaous, etc

Relaxing life in Ipoh made it became the best places for old folks. It is hard to see traffic jam or long delay in traffic in the city centre except at public holiday like Chinese New Year or Middle Autumn Festival.

But recently, some commercial area at Bercham, Ipoh Garden East, Menglembu, Silibin and Tambun start to have traffic jam during the peak hour. Silibin, Menglembu and Tambun's Main Road need to expand to 4 lanes. However Bercham and Ipoh Garden East need more flyover now... Now only one of the junction at Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah Utara is having construction of flyover.

Teluk Batik

Approximately 84 km south of Ipoh is the quiet coastal town of Lumut which is now the base of the Royal Malaysian Navy and the jumping-off point to Pangkor island. Many locals, however, do not take the ferry to Pangkor but instead head for Teluk Batik, a pleasant beach about 6 km from Lumut. Here the white sands and swaying coconut trees make it an ideal site for relaxation and swimming. At low tide, some hard corals become visible. Chalet accommodation is available.

MK Land Buys Land For RM277 Million

IPOH, Jan 15 (Bernama) -- Property developer, MK Land Holdings Berhad will further invest in the construction of affordable housing units in Perak after acquiring land worth RM277 million in Meru, near here.

Its executive chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal Abu Bakar said the project, which would start end of this year, was a continued effort after the successful launch of its housing project in Taman Klebang Putra at Ipoh-Chemor road, with all the units sold and completed earlier than scheduled.

Negotiations on the purchase with owners of the 36.8 hectares and 40.8 hectares of land were in the final stages, he told reporters after presenting the keys for the Klebang Putra low cost terrace houses here today.

He said the area would be developed for affordable homes, using a similar concept as the new housing scheme in Klebang, that is Taman Klebang Putra.

He said Taman Klebang Putra which was first developed in 2003, received occupants end of last year with the handing over of several units under phase one of the affordable houses.

As a whole, 1,377 residential units are expected to be fully completed by the end of this year while 664 units of houses have been handed over to their owners, with gross development valued of nearly RM38 million, he said.

The residential area to be built in Meru will maintain the housing concept as that in Klebang Putra-- residents-friendly, and equipped with surau, police booth, clubhouse equipped with gymnasium, swimming pool as well as cafeteria and recreational park to provide comfort for the residents.

At the function, State Secretary Datuk Abdul Hanan Alang Endut presented the keys to 108 house owners.

He said construction of the residential area was scheduled to start end of this year with the full support from the state government.

Mustapha Kamal said his company dared to invest in Perak after the success of several projects previously and regarded MK Land as the largest development partner in the state.

State Government Focuses On Three Issues

IPOH, Feb 8 (Bernama) -- The state government will focus on three aspects of development under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) to ensure Perak becomes a developed state by 2015.

They are raising the per capita income of the people, eradicating poverty and housing for squatters.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali said all state exco members and department heads would meet on March 5 and 6 to discuss the development under the 9MP.

A total of 23 working papers would be discussed during the conference, he said after chairing a state exco meeting, here Wednesday.

Among the measures to be taken in poverty eradication would be to hold cross checking between agencies and head counts.

The district offices will be asked to gather data and take pictures of the houses of the hardcore poor to prevent duplication of aid, he said.

He said the state government would hold Perak Fair in Medan for four days from Feb 24 to introduce state products to Indonesia.

Among the products would be medication, education, housing and hotels.

"Two MoU would be signed on medication and education," he said.

The state is expected to receive more people from Medan looking for these services when Air Asia started a direct flight from Ipoh to Medan beginning from March 1, he said.

Perak Welcomes Twinning Offer For Ipoh From Medan

MEDAN, Feb 25 (Bernama) -- Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali on Saturday welcomed an offer from Medan for Ipoh to be its twin city.

"We accept the offer. The Mayors of both cities can discuss the matter further and the areas where we can step up co-operation," he told reporters after launching the Perak Fair 2006 here today.

Tajol Rosli said the twinning programme would pave the way for more Medan residents to come to Perak for tourism, education, investments and medical treatment.

He said among measures that could be taken for the purpose were increasing flight frequencies between Ipoh and Medan and improving tourism infrastructures in the state.

Perak would also discuss with the Mayor of Medan to start a Medan Fair in Ipoh, he said.
