In June 2016, DBKL had is­sued a no­tice on the pro­posed devel­op­ment on a por­tion of land that is sit­u­ated within the 189ha Taman Rimba Kiara.

The pro­posed devel­op­ment in­volves the build­ing of eight blocks of 42- and 52-storey high­end ser­vice apart­ments and a 29storey af­ford­able hous­ing block.

The TTDI Res­i­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion (RA) at a town hall meet­ing last Sun­day warned that it would take le­gal ac­tion to stop the project, claim­ing that it would over­whelm TTDI with at least 8,000 to 10,000 new res­i­dents.

The RA also said they dis­cov­ered at a meet­ing with DBKL that the con­do­minium project would in­volve ex­ten­sive road con­struc­tions in the sub­urb, in­clud­ing ex­pand­ing a road con­nect­ing to Pen­chala Link to a six-to-eight lane high­way.
