Could this be the new look at Savalalo?

SAVALALO PLANS? A lot has been said about what will rise out of the ashes at what was once the Savalalo Flea Market. Destroyed by fire last month, the government has quickly moved to set up temporary tents so that the businesses affected could resume their operations. 

But Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi has also revealed plans to build a Central Government Building in the area. He said the government has been negotiating with China for funding.

A few years ago, these photos were released in the government-owned Savali newspaper, when the government had initially talked about erecting a 15-storey building in the area. Will these plans come to pass now?
