You mean tha building in the middle? hahaha......it is actually a very 'retro' apartment building at Bukit Bintang but poorly maintained. A new coat of paint would make it much much nicer

Sounds exactly like Golden Mile Complex in Singapore.

It is actually very well designed, very clean and nice. The back is like a giant staircase, all units get equal amount of sunshine, wind and same views. The back is entirely balconies.



But apartment owners ended up adding awnings, covers and structures to their units, spoiling the entire back facade.

Morever, it isn't very well maintained, not cleaned. Now it looks like slums on a slope!

Last I heard it is a haven for Thai immigrants izzit?

And that the Nicole Highway collapsed makes business there worsen. Anyway that apartment block in KL (forgot its name already) had a very nice facade......with each apartment occupying a jutted out 'box'....making it looked a bit like The Habitat.

Yes. The two Golden Miles, Complex and Tower are like a haven for Thai people.

I forgot to mention that all units in Complex has a view of the sky, so every unit would feel as if you're living in a penthouse with a roof terrace!

Golden Mile Tower has the largest cinema in Singapore now. But it is rarely used. And the two tiers of the cinema had been divided into two screens.
