Two Blocks at Pekeliling Flats torn down

KUALA LUMPUR: Two blocks of the Pekeliling Flats have been torn down and others are in the process of being demolished following months of relocating residents.

Motorists driving along Jalan Tun Razak towards Setapak and Kuala Lumpur Hospital can now see a glaring space on the left, where the low-rise commercial-cum-residential Blocks H99 and J97 once stood.

It is learnt that demolition works began a month ago, following the relocation of residents from Blocks A, B, H and J in August, and Blocks G, K and L in September last year. Block D was vacant by Hari Raya Puasa in November, leaving only Blocks C, E and F occupied.

An office-cum-business block is currently being torn down.

Abdul Naim Jalil, 64, who used to operate a food stall there, said demolition works on the block began about four days ago.

One of Kuala Lumpur’s earliest public housing projects, the Pekeliling Flats – also known as Tunku Abdul Rahman public flats – was built in 1967. It had 11 residential blocks comprising 2,969 units.

The area will make way for a commercial and housing project called Tamansari.

I thought the tallest building is in Parcel A and it is only 40 storey height.

Where does this 60 storey building come from?
^^ 40 is just for parcel A coz the masterplan has been changed(the big rendering is the latest version), but it still missing couple of parcel development like C,D..etc where the tallest one will rise ;)

WOW, It has been years since KL saw her last big projects. One major concern however; KL has also seen a lot of mega projects being half-baked or simply never made it. Just cross our fingers that Asie (a bumiputra company?) can deliver the goods...

But in short- GREAT project & vision! :applause:
Great project is very large. I want to see it when completition.
