Developer has no update on status of Rimba Kiara project

KUALA LUMPUR – Sept 7, 2016: A source in Malton Group has told The Mole that the company has yet to make a final decision on the proposed project at Rimba Kiara Park.

As of today, there has been no update or new discussion between the company and Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) on the plan outside the park on the fringes of Taman Tun Dr. Ismail.

The project to be undertaken by Malton subsidiary Memang Perkasa is to have nine blocks of 52-storey apartments outside the front entrance of the park. It has drawn objections from residents.

The source confirmed that Malton had sent several representatives to the public hearing held by DBKL last week with residents but there has been no discussion since then.

Nothing was promised to the residents at the public hearing but they were informed that the DBKL would reengage the developer further.

DBKL also confirmed that it was still discussing the proposal with the Ministry of Federal Territories and Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (YWP), the land owner, and that no firm decision has been made on the plan.
