Oh I'm just so sick of this completely unprincipled building....on the one hand everyone banging on about green spaces and quality of life, and on the other hand replacing the high rise buildings they're pulling down with more and higher rising buildings...it's a JOKE. And trees coming down everywhere. Our parking lot at MCH has some really nice trees which are just starting to be "real trees" i.e. they've gone beyond the sapling stage, and now they're going to cut them all down and put up their ruddy tower, blocking the sunshine of the poor people in the South Block who always had the morning sun pouring in and now are going to be in total darkness. As will the people who move into the West facing flank of the new building, never mind the East facing ones who will have their teeth shaking from the trains day and night. And finally Mr. Prescott will go - but too late.
Given all the above information, my guess is that the small bit of land next to the Lye Torng is being tarted up as a kids playground as a sop for losing the bigger play space on the other side of the road.
