A few years back this place housed a restaurant and I had a pleasant meal there. Guess it wasn't paying. In the background is the stupa of Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram, a Thai Buddhist temple.

I guess too that, if the land has a high value the rates have gone sky high, which would increase the overheads and make businesses less viable. Then just wait for a friendly developer...

As I understand, the developer can't do much except restore it. Perhaps they can build something behind it but there is no space for that.

Lovely shot but sad about the property.

Looks like it would have been a nice restaurant. Ironic - and tragic - that it could be abandoned because of the area's World Heritage listing.
