Complex revival plan

01/05/2009 The Star By SIMON KHOO

KUANTAN: Despite being located at the town centre adjacent to the bus terminal, Kompleks Makmur has failed to become a prime shopping spot here.

The problem started when the developer-cum-complex-management firm ran into financial difficulties, leaving the unit owners in the lurch.

One after the other, the owners vacated the units and moved elsewhere even though they had to service their loans.

Teruntum assemblyman Chang Hong Seong said, of the 80 units available, 60 of were bought when the complex was launched.

Saving grace: Volunteers doing their bit to clean up an abandoned unit at Kompleks Makmur in Kuantan recently.

Chang, however, said the management encountered problems and left the owners to fend for themselves.

“Now, only eight owners operate an Internet cafe, music shop, grocery and accessories outlets at the complex.

“The owners set up an ad hoc committee in February this year and discussions are being held to revive the complex,” he said at a gotong royong to clean the premises recently.

About 150 volunteers from the MCA, PKR, Rela and Kuantan Municipal Council together with the complex owners and National Service trainees took part in the exercise.

Chang said that some facilities were no longer useable and had to be replaced but the structure was still safe.

He said, for a start, the state had approved an allocation of RM50,000 to repair the toilets.

“We hope to find an amicable solution to help the owners carry on with their businesses.

“Plans are in the pipeline to appoint a new management with the local council’s help,” he said.

Chang said the owners must be prepared to fork out money to refurbish the units and carry out promotional activities.

He said the bus terminal that catered to long-distance destinations would be relocated to Indera Mahkota under new a proposal.

“It will then be used for town buses plying through Kuantan,” he said.
