Bali Hai & Walking Street Project


Recommended Posts

Who are all the people, mostly women, in yellow shirts? Perhaps all the local Pattaya business people have given up and didn't bother attending so they had to ask the cleaners in to make up the audience numbers, lol?

So the building 9 is the derelict Waterfront still rotting?

   Yes, and I hope they are finally, finally, FINALLY doing something about it!  So many years sitting unfinished, just do something already!  Since it has a number on it, maybe they were at least discussing it.  Knock off the top 10 floors and finish the darn thing--or tear it down.  Long past time for a decision to be made.

I very very seriously doubt it will ever be knocked down......There is some Major Serious money to be made by someone who can finish it.....Just throw all the old condo owners under the bus, cancel all the old debts.....Your new building is already 50% built......Its a win win win for the new owners.....

   I would prefer it finished rather than torn down as I like the architecture but just make a decision already.  Don't leave it in decaying limbo year after year--since 2014--in the most prominent spot in town.

Whatever happens, the height needs to be reduced to allow the view from the lookout again.

Someone needs to do something about it, but that's not the Thai way. The Hopewell pillars still remain.

I think reducing the height would be the best solution and a good compromise.  The top floors are mostly see-thru while the lower floors have windows and are in a more finished state.

I understand that the height is not the only problem. It seems there are also (amongst others) issues with land encroaching, elevators and emergency escapes. Furthermore if it will be partially demolished the owners who see their apartments removed would want compensation. It can only be altered after approval. That means that the person who signs for this admits that initially something went wrong. Also who is going to pay for this all ?  Will be an interesting (and longwinding) story....
