Before construction of these new shops taking place, this probably is the last piece of land in Old Town that was covered by several huge rain trees. The empty land was used as storage of large scale metal goods. When the project began, based on Malaysia's tradition in properties development, I was thinking all those trees would be certainly eliminated. However, it surprises me when there is one survived & being considered as part of the plan. Although I still feel regret that only one, but not more, able to stand until today, it's still a good intention & good example to be adopted by other development projects. I am sure there must be suitable ways to maintain as many green plants as possible when making new buildings, if the owner & architect willing to spend a little more time to think of it.
