The Phnom Penh municipal government will today issue announcements to two property developers ordering them to partially demolish buildings near the Royal Palace in order to reduce their height to comply with the original planning agreements, an official said. The two buildings—one owned by Vattanac Properties on riverside’s Sisowath Quay and the other a privately owned apartment block on an alley off Street 19 behind the Royal University of Fine Arts—are in violation of restrictions imposed by the authorities to limit the height of buildings in the vicinity of the Royal Palace, municipal spokesman Long Dimanche said Sunday.
