One building, owned by Vat*tanac Properties, is located a block from the palace on Siso*wath Quay near Street 184. The other, owned by a businessman, is located two blocks away in an alley off Street 19 behind the Royal University of Fine Arts. “We will demolish two buildings, but I cannot say before [Phnom Penh governor Pa So*cheatvong] issues an announcement before the demolition.
