This was taken around a 3 weeks ago.



I doubt that it can be completed soon.The building has topped up but they are still putting up bricks.I believe early 2008 will be a more realistic completion period.

Welcome guys.I believe the building was intended to be 6 floors earlier like the info board stated and probably they changed when the building is still under construction

Haha..I recall that when I am young time, I used to count the height of Renainance hotel and Emperor hotel.Cause during that time, these 2 are the highest in the city....and now there still remain the highest building...hope in the future, melaka city centre will have one building over 30 storey...this will make the skyline looks even better.... :)
