Tunku Abdul Rahman Flats, better known as the Pekeliling Flats.Completed in 1967, the flats, which originally used to be called the Circular Road Flats, were one of the earliest housing development projects in the city.Originally consisting of 11 blocks of 17-storey flats, they were home to more than 2,500 people over the 47-year period.The remaining five blocks will be demolished using the “top down” method where floor by floor will be brought down. After work is completed by late next year, a mixed development project, comprising residential and commercial blocks and a hospital, will take off in early 2016. Photo by Firdaus Latif
