It seems that the looks built last time was much better..i mean now..even the condos in Mon't Kiara you can see buldging cement lines that divides each floor.. and the surface looks rather blemishy..tacky
One Persiaran Gurney looks smooth

Hey, isn't Wisma Peladang being converted into a 3-star hotel by the Piccolo Mondo group? What is the work progress so far?

What i see is that the Piccolo Mondo restaurant has been "upgraded" to La Opera... But the building still looks as it is above...

Cool thread!

ugly or not, the 60s and 70s certainly produced one-of-a-kind designs.

This building looks like its inspired by disco
