The condition of SPH de Silva building as seen since September 2011 is now changing. It is moving into a new era. Restoration work commences this week as we can see scaffolding being setup at one side of the building & workers start to scrapping off the wall cement. As I know the building may be converted into a boutique hotel. Anyhow I hope the restoration will return its original beauty & retain one of the most beautiful heritage buildings in Ipoh.
