A new properties development in downtown, Ipoh SoHo by Kinta Saujana, may introduce a new concept to remain population in city center. In the past 2 decades, people are moving out from downtown seeking for more spacious living environment & avoiding congestion in the city. It had caused Ipoh city center become a dead town at night. The Ipoh SoHo project would promote a combination of living & commercial building in the heart of city. If the concept works for Ipoh, there may be more similar projects in future will copy the concept. Furthermore, current old shoplots which was designed in the same way might also be restored to accommodate needs of modern day's living & commercial style.
