PJ Sentral

More development in store for Petaling Jaya
By TAN KARR WEI
TheStar Metro 16 Feb09


BEFORE the dust from the FAS field controversy has settled, Petaling Jaya residents could be bracing themselves for more major developments as the site of the former Matsushita factory in SS9 has been earmarked for development.

The 7.95ha of land has been taken out of the free trade zone and the status of the land changed for commercial use.



Marked for development: The status of the land where the Matsushita factory was located has been changed to allow commercial use.


The proposed development submitted to the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) includes three blocks of 17-storey serviced apartments, a 16-storey hotel with banquet hall, five blocks of 25- to 31-storey offices, a 20-storey Small Office Home Office (SOHO) block, 18 units of 3½-storey showrooms and 80 units of 4½-storey shop lots.


Quote:
- (3) 17storey condos
- (1) 16storey hotel
- (5) 25-to-31storey offices
- (1) 20storey soho
- 18units showroom/corporate villas
- shop lots with alfresco boulevards
Total 3+1+5+1 = 10 skyscrapers


wah very very very crowded lah................

A development of this density at the junction of the LDP and the Federal Highway could add to the massive traffic jams experienced not only by PJ residents but road users from places like Puchong and Shah Alam.

According to private traffic planning consultant Goh Bok Yen, the development had a sizeable density that could see an additional 63,000 cars per day.

“They must come up with a good traffic dispersal system,” he said.



Too close for comfort: The houses are only separated from the factory by a narrow road and residents fear congestion if the project goes through.


Goh felt that the conversion of land use was inevitable for urban renewal but must be handled in a careful manner.

“If done on an ad hoc basis, it would upset the road and transport infrastructure. We should look at the overall area, like in Section 13 and have a master plan for the area,” Goh said.

He added that solving the existing problems of traffic congestion should be the main priority.


In the proposed development plans, 4,888 car parks were required but only 4,444 will be allocated.

Quote:
please please build more multistorey carparks

“The cars could either wait, park outside, or circulate the building. A shortage of car parks is very critical because this is located at the cross point of the busy LDP and the Federal Highway.

“Any shortage of parking spaces in a congested area could lead to more problems,” Goh said.

MBPJ councillor Derek Fernandez, who chaired the objection hearing at the MBPJ headquarters, said that residents who submitted objections had raised certain issues like traffic congestion and parking problems.

“Most of the residents are from the lower-income group and their quality of life is already bad. The proper infrastructure is not in place, the air quality is bad and even the drains there are clogged,” he said.

The houses behind the factory are separated only by a narrow residential road.

A resident, who declined to be named, also said that they were worried about the safety of their houses during the demolition of the factory.

“There would also be pollution when construction starts,” the SS9/15 resident said.

Seri Setia assemblyman Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, who was also present at the objection hearing, agreed with the issues brought up by the residents and said that the density of the proposed development was too high.

“What they’re proposing is exceeding what the infrastructure can handle. It’s near the LDP flyover, which is already severely congested,” Nik Nazmi said.

He said that, at present, the residents were already having problems with the heavy traffic on their roads as motorists tried to avoid the jam on the highways.

All-Petaling Jaya Residents’ Association Coalition (APAC) chairman Liew Wei Beng said that the land should not be rezoned before the Petaling Jaya Local Plan 2 (RTPJ2) was gazetted.

“PJ can no longer sustain development of such a high density. The MBPJ should work on improving the infrastructure before they can even consider such applications,” Liew said.

He added that it was not viable to have apartments at such a critical area of the LDP.

“Take a look outside any condominium in PJ and you would see cars parked along the road. Is this the image we want for the city?

“The MBPJ needs to seriously consider increasing the ratio of required car parks to three bays per unit,” Liew said.

Selangor local government, research and studies committee chairman Ronnie Liu said he had no knowledge of any approval for the land conversion.

“When it comes to us, we’ll study the proposal,” he said.

Objections presented for several PJ projects
By JADE CHAN


EIGHT public hearings were held at the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) office on Monday to look into the suggestions and objections for several proposed projects in the city.

Among those mentioned were the proposed developments at the former Matsushita factory in Jalan SS 8/1, the former Kelana Seafood Restaurant in Jalan SS7/13, the Baywatch Cafe in Jalan PJU 1/42, a commercial block in Jalan SS6/6 and a mixed development in Bandar Sri Damansara.

PJ councillor Derek Fernandez, who chaired the hearings, said the next step would be to compile all the objections and comments that had been made and tabled them before the One-Stop Centre (OSC), which was the committee that approved development.

“The OSC will make a decision based on the law, guidelines and objections that have been heard.

“In some cases, residents have requested for further information; therefore we will defer the decision until the information is exchanged between the objector and the applicant.

“We would like the objector and the applicant to meet beforehand and try, as far as possible, to resolve their differences. What they can’t resolve, they can come back to us for a decision,” he said.

According to Fernandez, a major problem that is stopping development is insufficient infrastructure.

“Because the existing infrastructure can’t take it anymore, the developers will be denied their rights to maximise on densities and plot ratios. This is also substantially and adversely affecting residents.

“If the Federal Government wants to spur economic development in the country, it must put all its resources into public transportation and infrastructure.

“Now is the opportunity for the Federal Government to work with the state government and build new infrastructure like drains and roads,” he said.

“There is also a need to have an efficient, cost effective, user-friendly public transportation system which is run by the government. It cannot be privatised because the goal of privatisation is profit.”

Fernandez said the MBPJ might have to impose development charges on developers in the future, which would go towards an infrastructure contribution fund.

“The charges will be based on the type of development. The money is put into a centralised pool and used to improve infrastructure,” he said, adding that it was also important to ensure that the job was carried out properly by the contractors.

“Unlike the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), the MBPJ has never had a substantial development contribution fund, but this may become a reality.”

Seri Setia assemblyman Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad highlighted his concern that the three projects in his constituency (SS8, SS7 and SS6) involved the Damansara-Puchong Highway, which is already Class F in terms of traffic flow, which he said is “one of the worst”.

“While I agree that the current situation is not the developers’ fault and that they can’t be expected to solve it, the proposed projects must take into account this issue and how the project should not contribute further to the existing problem.”

He stressed on the importance of adhering to the allowable plot ratio, as, according to him, the proposals for the three projects in his constituency had exceeded the plot ratio requirement that is allowed by the MBPJ and Town and Country Planning Department.

“I’m not saying we’re against development. The land is already in the hands of the developer so we have to be practical,” said Nik Nazmi.

“How we go about doing it is that we regulate the development, in terms of ensuring requirements on height, density and traffic flow are adhered to.

“Greater attention must be paid to bus terminals and shuttle services and how to integrate it into the public transportation system,” he said.

Fernandez noted that the MBPJ practises transparency and public participation in its decision-making process and had invited reporters and representatives from the All-Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Residents Association Coalition and Real Estate and Housing Developers Association Malaysia to attend the hearings.

“We even listened to residents who didn’t have the legal rights to object,” he said.

'Mega projects will incur high social costs'
Sheila Sri Priya


Residents are objecting to the projects as they would contribute to the congestion of the Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong and the surrounding areas.

PETALING JAYA: Three major development projects proposed along the Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) are causing concern among residents in the area.

The residents are objecting to the proposed projects which they said would add to the congestion at the highway and the affected areas.

The projects also have a high plot ratio of up to 5.98.

A plot ratio is derived by dividing the total floor area and total land area. In most cases, depending on the location of the area, only a plot ratio of up to 2.5 is allowed.


Among the proposed projects is the planned rezoning and development of the 286,000sq m of land where the Matsushita factory is located. The developer claimed that the project would provide job opportunities and give a modern facelift to the city.

They also promised that the project would incorporate sufficient greenery.

However, residents, especially those in SS8/1, are not buying the idea and are against the plans to have, among others, a 16-storey hotel, five 31-storey office blocks, apartments and shoplots


"The developer's beautiful artist impression of the future mega-project sounds lucrative based on marketing aspects but how about the social impact on us?

"Will the developer upgrade the basic infrastructure such as the drainage system and the roads?

"In the past, we have sacrificed a lot for the sake of development which leave a negative impact on our lives and our future generation," said a resident at the Petaling Jaya City Council public hearing.

Taman Mayang residents association chairman Chan Chow Wang suggested that the land should be turned into a green lung or should only be used for low-density development.

Another development is in Jalan SS6/6 Kelana Jaya where a 16-storey office block and commercial units are being planned.

Residents complained that the project would worsen the congestion in the area.

However, a developer's representative, who was at the hearing, said the congestion was caused by residents parking illegally by the roadside.

Seri Setia assemblyman Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said the development project would also lead to more traffic flowing to the LDP.

However, he's not against the development but wants the plot ratio to be complied with.

Meanwhile, at the site of the demolished Kelana Seafood Centre, there is a proposal to build two blocks each of a 10-storey and 16-storey office units and shopping complex.

The initial plan was to build another food court to replace the Kelana Seafood Centre.

If approved, the new development in Jalan SS7/13, Kelana Jaya, will also place great pressure on the LDP.

Nik Nazmi said there was already a similar project a few metres away which was already going to place a heavy burden on the LDP.

"Another large scale project will only add more stress to the roads," he said.

At present, the traffic flow along the LDP is rated as "F" at its worst, based on the traffic and design standard implemented by the Petaling Jaya City Council.
