Malaysians are no stranger to the Highland Towers tragedy which took the lives of 48 people on 11 December 1993. After two decades, the government decided to demolish the ruins of Highland Towers last year (2018). Following that, there have been talks of repurposing the site by building a recreational park.

Much more recently, Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin shared that the landowners have suggested building a recreational park and 50 bungalow lots near the site. She was quoted as saying,

“It is not high-rise but bungalow lots. So we think that it could benefit the people there.”

FYI, Highland Towers is strategically located on premium land in Taman Hillview, Ulu Kelang, which is a high-income location.

As of now, before the development can take place, Zuraida said that the government is waiting for the court to “determine the status” of the site. She explained that the court ruling will help the special Highland Towers Re-Development Committee make decisions regarding developments for the land.

Zuraida shared,

“The court ruling will be made in April (2019), which will assist the committee to determine the status of the land. The geotechnical status of the land is tricky, so after the ruling is made, then the committee will be able to decide on how to redevelop the area.”

“The committee is expected to have its decision by the first week of May.”

So, let’s keep our eyes peeled for more information on this matter!
