A Forgotten Heritage Building

Right at the heart of busiest city center, thousands of people driving & walking through Brewster Road day & night. Apart from some modern buildings, Chua Cheng Bok Building at the junction to Horley Street is probably the greatest prewar building. This 3-storey building was completed in 1930's. The original owner was Chua Cheng Bok, a tycoon in early 20th century. However, the building is almost completely vacant except a restaurant occupying part of its ground floor. I don't understand the reason of no tenant for a building in this hottest business district. Although it's not in very bad shape now, but there is still a worry of deterioration and we may face another heritage loss in Ipoh.
