Ming Tien Food Court still draws the crowds, especially at night
The days of the Ming Tien Food Court, a popular eatery in Taman Megah, Petaling Jaya, are numbered. It is not just the long-standing food court, but the adjacent badminton court housing Michael’s Badminton Academy, the discount store Fun Cheer and pet store The Pet Family are all facing the countdown. In their place will be a high-rise residential-commercial project to be developed by tycoon Robert Kuok’s PPB Group Bhd. The company, linked to the former Sugar King and Malaysia’s richest person, is expected to start the mixed development next year although it has indicated the project is still on the drawing board. “We are still at the planning stage for this project and we will provide you with more information once we have finalised the details of the development,” says PPB Group managing director Lim Soon Huat in an email reply to FocusM. Sources say based on the initial plan, the development is believed to have three 33-storey residential towers. The project will also have a multi-level carpark and retail outlets. PPB Group has not provided visuals of the project and it is not known whether there will be major changes to the initial plan.
