A 17-storey condo! Yes, that's what they are doing up on a hill in Bangsar where, 20 years ago, only the Syed Kechik Foundation existed. I drove down the hill again this afternoon and eyed the hillslope palaces, single-storey bungalows, multi-storey condominiums. There must be a total of over 100 swimming pools up that hill. So there's always money to be made by developers in this area.
The Datuk Bandar says the latest condo project can go on if Ikram's study says it's OK. I don't know. Just because modern knowhow has taught our developers how to build a skyscraper on a land big enough for a couple of bungalows doesn't mean we should build that skyscraper.
The Mayor needs to be more re-assuring here. Say "Highland Towers" before you utter another word on the matter.
