Iconic building: The Atkinson Clock Tower is the oldest standing structure in Kota Kinabalu.

KOTA KINABALU: A historic clock tower, the oldest standing structure in the city, is once again at the centre of a controversy and may be relocated after approval was given to build an 18-storey hotel and shopping mall next to it.

Luyang assemblyman Hiew King Chew said City Hall was thinking about moving the 112-year-old Atkinson Clock Tower from its present location, a hill adjacent to Padang Merdeka here, although a new site has not been finalised.
