The MBPP has to explain this project on a 5.0ha plot of land on environmentally sensitive steep hillslopes. About two thirds of the plot is above the Penang Structure Plan threshold of 250 feet above sea level.
The plot (Lot 62) is behind the Miami Green Resort Condominium in Batu Ferringhi.
Apparently the project involves two 38-storey blocks (336 serviced apartments) with a four-storey car park and 26 shop lots and a block of 182 ‘affordable’ apartments and 15 low-cost flats with a four-storey car park.
Won’t be much Green left there! Don’t we have more than enough serviced apartments in Penang already?
