HISTORIC SITE NOW
ST Paul’s Institution and the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus were missionary schools in Seremban that were demolished in the late 1970s to make way for development.
Now, the site where St Paul’s Institution stood is a rundown shopping complex.
When the idea for a shopping complex was mooted, it was supposed to be a multi-storey building.
The recession forced the developer to change plans, and a downsized building was constructed instead.
Those who had bought shoplots in this building must be suffering terrible losses.
Many of the lots are empty and cannot be rented out due to the deplorable condition.
The air-conditioning ceased to function for many years and tenants had to install their own airconditioners.
The escalators are not working and I am not sure about the lifts.
The building is often deserted. Several floors are dimly lit and the corridors are dark and dingy.
One can smell the stench of urine from the toilets and corridors.
Hardly anyone would want to go to this place unless they have business to conduct with the few
