Residents slam development project



By DAWN CHAN | [email protected]




OBJECTION: City Hall urged to reject the application for a massive mixed development near a mosque and residential areas

KUALA LUMPUR: RESIDENTS of Hartamas Heights are objecting to a new mixed development application in Jalan Changkat Kiara Hartamas. They say City Hall should not approve the development and should stand its ground and reject the proposal, as it did for a development project on this same piece of land back in 2003.

The development, on a 7.63ha land, is only 300m away from the residents' homes. They said it was not right for City Hall to allow the application to go through as it violates the status and will increase the density and traffic to the already congested area.

They are also unhappy that it is located in proximity to Masjid Wilayah. The multi-storey buildings of the project will rise in the skyline like a sore thumb and block the majestic view of the house of worship which was completed in 2000.

The residents came together to object the project which they had learnt just recently through a City Hall notice board at the site, put up on July 15.

Residents' representative, Azim Abdul Aziz, said they were slighted because the notice board was placed at an inconspicuous spot, and on top of that, did not portray the true scale and nature of the proposed development.

The project has a 49-storey office block, with an eight-storey podium with two levels of basement car park, as well as three service apartment blocks of five, 37, and 47 storeys consisting of 680 units, plus a six-level podium car park.

The sheer size of the proposed development came as a shock to the residents.

Apart from the proposed development being too near Hartamas Heights, Desa Nusantara, and Duta Tropika neighbourhoods, it is also too close to the mosque, which is not respectful, said Azim.

"We are concerned that the high-rise buildings will overshadow the mosque which is an Islamic identity of the city.

"Such massive development will be unheard of, or even prohibited in many Western countries, to prevent their important religious landmarks from being blocked or overshadowed," he said.

They are also concerned about the number of restaurants, entertainment outlets and karaoke centres.

He said there are bars that are allowed to sell alcohol and may blast loud music in front of the mosque.

They urged City Hall to carry out an environmental impact assessment and social impact study for the development and include the views of mosque's management, Islamic Development Department (Jakim) and Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Department (Jawi).

The proposed development will worsen the traffic congestion and indiscriminate parking in the area, said the residents.

"The land status should remain as residential.

"The land owner should not be given a free hand to do what they want. We want City Hall to be fair not only to the developer but also to the rakyat. We also want a chance to be heard and reject this project as it is not needed," he said, adding that they will submit the objection to the mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib early next week.

To support their objection, residents had also presented a letter written by the then Jakim director-general Datuk Mustafa Abdul Rahman to City Hall, who opposed another mixed development project on the same plot of land as it was too close to the mosque.

In the the letter dated Oct 11, 2006, Mustafa also said, apart from traffic congestion, he was also worried that the project would bring about social ills.

He added that it could potentially hinder the government's plan to make the mosque an example of an Islam Hadhari mosque unachievable.

He had also said that high-rise buildings will obstruct the the call of azan.

The lawyer engaged by the residents, Jennifer Chandran, said they had run a check with the Federal Territory Land Office and the said land was still under residential status as of yesterday morning.

With just one more week before the deadline, she added that they would not give up, including handing in their objection that follows a hearing of the case with City Hall.

Should the result be unfavourable, they would proceed with a judicial review at the Court level.
