Furthermore, the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) will conduct a study on the demolition of Al-Salem Apartments Complex for widows and divorcees to pave way for the construction of a new building because it is not possible to renovate the complex 32 years after its establishment, reports Al-Jarida daily. A technical report obtained by the daily showed that the apartments are dilapidated; hence, the need to demolish the complex and build it again to guarantee the safety of tenants.
