Construction resumed in 2013 and then stopped again in March last year. Despite these postponements the tower has reached 31 floors.

So some of the building that is already in place will be 10-15 years old (maybe more) by the time construction is completed. Future tenants should be sure that does not include mechanical systems.

Any warranty on the same systems would be void. Will they have to replace any prior to recommencing work?

You wouldn't want to have bought an apartment on the lower ten floors on the east side. The daughter of someone very important put up a building about two meters away on that side. It would be a bit dark.

Kid's City is colorful and semi-transparent so you could do worse. The place is owned by Meng Hieng, a self-made man and not anybody important's daughter unless you know differently? :?
