The Lak Si district office last night ordered a halt to the construction of a condominium near Soi Chinnaket in northern Bangkok after debris – including a 10kg steel object – repeatedly fell on nearby homes, causing property damage, but no casualties as of yet.
Nearby residents earlier lodged a complaint with the Central Administrative Court over the district office’s alleged failure to strictly enforce regulations against Asian Property, which is building the 28-storey Aspire Condominium.
As a result of the court’s order, the district office ordered Asian Property to stop building during the weekend, but the firm allegedly violated this ban last Sunday. So, last night it decided to order a complete halt to the construction.
The Lak Si district office quoted the company’s management as promising that owners of damaged homes would be compensated. A daily fine of Bt100,000 would be imposed on the firm if it kept building the condo without permission.
