This is my second visit to Aeon Big Falim, Midtown Shopping Mall. The mall is currently partially occupied with only Aeon Big and some shoplots at north wing are operating. Aeon Departmental Store on its south wing will probably commence business this coming September. Finding parking is not an issue over here; plenty of parking lots available on the ground. Anyway, I choose to park at the roof top because I yet to experience the panoramic view from here. Its perimeter wall is pretty high, which I believe is to prevent any falling accident. It's not easy to grab a complete Ipoh city skyline but I am able to snap the skyline of New Town and Old Town. The above photo is probably an angle that could see most working tower cranes in one glance. Could you point out all the 9 cranes in this photo?
Close up view of New Town can be split into 2 portions; the city center which seen Ipoh downtown current tallest building, The Octagon and others such as The Majestic, MBI, Tower Regency Hotel, Excelsior Hotel and so on, whereas another snapshot focuses on city outskirt, which seen tower cranes of two new condominium projects (Kampung Paloh & Tin City), Impiana Hotel, Prima Ipoh Condo, Damaipuri Condo, etc.
Old Town skyline remains stagnant since the completion of Cititel Express Hotel. In my opinion, Old Town shall avoid intensive modernization in order to maintain low density of high rise building and minimize construction of new building for preserving its heritage appearance.
