In Brief: Landmark building proposed

A French

expert has suggested that Phnom Penh's landmark building should be

constructed in the Chaktomuk river intersection area. Frederic Mauret,

the city's French technical expert for the 2020 municipal master plan,

said Tuesday "we recommend the establishment of a cultural highrise at

Chaktomuk river area. It is a unique and invaluable location and would

provide an identifiable international landmark for the city, like the

Sydney Opera House in Australia". Mauret further proposed the

development of highrise buildings along the river in the Chaktomuk and

Chroy Changvar areas. Mab Sarin, deputy governor of Phnom Penh, said

that the 2020 master plan has been finalised and submitted to the

Council of Ministers. "We hope the Phnom Penh municipal master plan

will be approved by the government soon".
