New Medan Pasar

The clock tower to the north of Central Market used to mark the bus stop in the middle of town. It was a hub, signalling destination was reached and time to alight and sample the city centre.

The clock tower was now bare, meaning no more hustling busses stopping nearby. The whole area was transformed into a pedestrian walkway to good effect.

Nice art deco pattern at the base of the clock towerNow, the central area could use some original attraction or two. It was just too bare. The surrounding area also could use some redevelopment. Some nice old building were out there, and the walkways were being upgraded as well.

I see potential in this place. But first, we must figure out what to do with the Bangladeshi and Nepalese crowd around there. It was starting to feel like a foreign country.
