Demolition of Pudu Prison

ps:i accidentally deleted this post yesterday

UDA Holdings (GLC=funded by gov) had bought over the property to build a shopping/residential complex similar to Berjaya Times Square.

The project was referred to earlier as the BUKIT BINTANG COMMERCIAL CENTER.

It was reported that the developer would set aside RM5 billion for the project.

UDA does not fully own the land.

The part of the land belongs to the City Hall.

Parts of Pudu Prison were demolished after the developer handed over a portion of the site for a road expansion and tunnel project to ease traffic congestion in the area.

The road expansion works costing some RM83 million and slated for completion by September 2011 apparently began late last week.

UDA Holdings is currently involved in upgrading works of the Puduraya bus terminal.

THE MASTEPLAN,


pak UDA - "who cares about history? aku kaya!!!"
