Bali Post has drawn attention to the construction of a new apartment complex on Jalan Majapahit in Kuta.

Quoting a member of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD) from nearby Legian, IGN Sudiarsa, the Bali Post questioned the building of the large apartment complex in an area zoned for residential purposes. In the legislator's opinion, the operation of a commercial apartment complex including shopping and dining facilities is not in conformance with local codes limiting residential dwellings in the subject area.

Sudiarsa, who is the Chairman of Commission A at the House of Representatives, also told the Bali Post that another project - The Haven apartment complex in Legian is the source of complaints from local residents who say the apartment destroys the tranquility of the local neighborhood.

The Head of the Tourism Office for Badung, I Made Subawa, has defended the construction of apartment complexes in residential areas, saying the new project possesses all the necessary permits.

Subawa did pledge, however, to investigate accusations that the construction process is disturbing the surrounding neighborhood.

Subawa said that a final operating permit will be issued once the apartment project is completed. He also defended the "carrying capacity" for new apartment projects in Kuta, saying developers undertake detailed feasibility studies before commencing such projects.

The Jalan Majapahit project will be four stories high and include a shopping mall and restaurants. Current building regulations limit buildings in Bali to the height of a local coconut palm, a length generally agreed to be 15 meters.
