One of our most rewarding developments has been the act of converting neglected and left over low value sites to projects of worth, whether in the sense of revitalisation or rejuvenation of culture and social activity, the dilapidated buildings and grey sites of today can hope for the environmentally friendly parks and playgrounds of tomorrow. If this sounds far fetched, we only have to recall KL-LinearCity, a project once thought a fickle of our imagination.

As with all community related projects, converting places with no commercial potential into public realms have been our long term view of contributing to making cities sustainable. Another similar effort has been the work of some of our colleagues to convert a closed prison facility into a shopping paradise. In many asian countries we have seen the uptake of land mines and disused mining pools turned into entertainment and theme parks. Why not.
