Time passes so fast. Demolition of the old building at this site of Clarke Street was like just happened not too long ago, but now the new building is almost done of its construction. Banners have been put up to look for tenant, and one of these units will be a hotel. Unlike other reconstructed buildings in Ipoh, this is an extraordinary case where the building is carrying some features which are inheriting from its predecessor. In most of the cases, when heritage building in town is demolished, its replacement usually appeared to be dissonant with its neighbours.
