Walked past a couple of weeks backs and it looked like they had started to build on the empty land.

Any pics?

Thanks for not only starting this topic but continuing with it.

I look forwards to your further updates, when they actually make some more progress.

i think they have given up on it.

one of the schemes that city hall dream up on a regular basis that somebody somewhere thought would sort out the flooding problem in south pattaya.

well they all backed that idea big time without any real data that it would work. in real life  the work they did has not had much or any effect

This topic will continue because either they will eventually finish it, or from what you say, wont and slowly it will become overgrown and blocked again with rubbish.

In that case new structures will start to appear over and around the canal just as before.

 

I could be wrong but was there not supposed to be a purge on illegal structures encroaching on public land or built without permission some years back ?

 

Waterfront ground to a halt and some mention was made about some of the beach side buildings on Walking Street being extended over and on to the beach

The former is still on pause mode, as far as I know and the latter just seems to come up every now and again.

 

I think your topic here will run and run.

the bridge to Terabithia is getting worse fast

quite how a barely used steel bridge has been destroyed so quickly is a mystery to me

An interesting bit of Pattaya that few of us would see without your dedication sir.

Walked past Tony's dozens and dozens of times without ever realizing what so near.

Great effort on your part Mr S; kudos to ya! :Clap1:

building to the right of the bridge is my friends, well placed thai.   It went through the city and everything approved to build, then then cleaned the canal and stopped it...........even though  the had proper paperwork

I spend some time with a girl from sensations back in 2014 who lived in one of those bungalows, it's the only reason I knew this place existed, was quite a shock to see it when she took me there.

 

Thanks for the hit of nostalgia, great pictures.

with the end of the city hall admin and the army takeover of running things the owner of this "hold out" must have run out of friends and influence.

bali hai pier area.

today after almost a 2 year hiatus moves were afoot to remove the building which it seems encroached over the south pattaya canal.

numerous officials, workers, pick ups, trucks etc plus about 10 navy personel were down there today...........

"Almost 21 months since I last saw the crane on the top move".

 

I have heard it will be on the move very soon.

Friend of mine has paid for one of the higher units.

Been waiting that long and starting to think his money is gone..?

But he got news that it been given the go ahead.

They only got to change some 'Small' things like take off the top 2 floors I think...?

Waiting on the details.

i was back today to see what demolition had taken place (there is no grass growing under my feet) and the answer was very little.

now i'm guessing but i think the officials, workers and navy/military turned up the other day and said either knock it down or we will do it and send u a big bill for our trouble.

 

so right now a small team (i think in house)  is on the job moving like mollasses in the wintertime
