PATTAYA: -- Sophon Cable TV reported that people who have bought condos in the "Waterfront Condominium Pattaya" may see some light in their fight against the developers this month.

 

Chalermwat Wimuktayon of Magna Carta said that prospective buyers should go to the local courts to present documents from July 17.

 

The developers are trying to get the mega project back on track after it was shut down by Pattaya authorities more than two years ago amid a swathe of difficulties including possible land encroachment issues.

A major blot on the landscape, this project should never have been allowed to start.

yep. it is butt ugly, an insult t the skyline and natural lines of area.  and now, leaving it open and exposed to the elements for a few years can't have been good for the infrastructure.  Tear it down for safety

Below is a letter sent to buyers on 2nd July.  Does not seem that there is likely to be any "...developments later this month".

 

I have seen a few of these over the past couple of years.  City Hall has no obligation to  respond, but it is shame they do not in the interests of openness and transparency.  Perhaps they do not have a good answer.

Dear Client

Subject: Bali Hai Limited – Waterfront Pattaya Project

Further to our communication of 08 May 2017, we write to update you on the latest developments concerning the Waterfront Pattaya Project.

Construction Permit

As previously reported, after Bali Hai’s submission lodged on 12 January 2017, Pattaya City Hall (“PCH”) further postponed its decision from the end of March 2017 to mid-May 2017. On the 1st of June 2017 Bali Hai received, with much disappointment, PCH’s reply dated 11 May 2017, notifying that the Company’s building modification application had not been approved due to incompleteness of certain information and some discrepancies. By the reply, Bali Hai is legally allowed now to file a new application for building modification permit with PCH. As you are aware, the general understanding following discussions between the Company’s professional team and PCH in 2016, was that should the Company be willing to compromise, by demolishing the top 5 floors of the building to observe the floor area limits of the approved scheme, PCH would view the new reduced floor area scheme favourably by approving the application and accommodating other minor changes. This was evidenced by the Company submitting an application for modification permit for the reduced floor area scheme, together with detailed demolition plans, an updated EIA report and all relevant plans and documents as required by law, for proceeding with the same. Many questions which were subsequently raised by PCH regarding this scheme had confirmed that this was indeed the mutual understanding.

Throughout the process, the Company complied and co-operated with all orders raised by PCH in good faith and it is disappointing to now discover that, despite PCH having twice extended the statutory deadline for its decision and despite having had many months to review Bali Hai’s submission, it chose not to inform the Company during this period at all and rejected the Company’s request for a meeting for mutual discussion.

Having reviewed PCH’s comments to the Company’s submission in PCH’s reply, many of the queries had in fact previously been responded to while some remain unclear or are minor in nature and could easily have been addressed.

 

Future Plans

Before the Company can submit a new application for building modification permit as instructed by PCH, and in order to ensure that such course of action will be correctly executed to PCH’s complete satisfaction, particularly in the context of the above, the Company considers it is highly essential that our representatives meet with PCH’s relevant officials to have the opportunity to discuss and clarify exactly what PCH’s comments and requirements are, to avoid any future misinterpretations.

 

The Company has therefore submitted the letter to PCH to formally request a meeting between the professional teams of PCH and the Company on 29 June 2017. As you may appreciate, the process for resubmission is complicated and likely to take considerable time. The Company hopes to be able to resubmit as soon as reasonably practical after the said meeting (or meetings) take place.

 

Rehabilitation Status

As previously reported, the court had to postpone the previous hearing due to an internal court error and the new hearing date has been scheduled on 17 July 2017 at 9.00 a.m. We will advise you of the outcome after the hearing.

As previously advised, the rehabilitation process has been embarked upon to preserve the value of the Project and enable it to survive this extraordinary crisis which it has been challenged with. The Company remains steadfast in its objective to see to it that the construction is resumed and completed so that all buyers will eventually receive their condominium unit’s title.

We remain most grateful for your continued support and patience.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Lior Widenfeld

Authorized Director, Bali Hai Limited
