To him, I say: "Thank you, Steve. For everything..."
The project comprises five 35-storey apartment blocks and two 15-storey business complexes.
The move has irked the 10,000 residents of SS7 near the 7.55ha field.
The development was "discovered" when five residents in the area received a feedback notice on the project from the Petaling Jaya City Council dated Sept 23. The notice stated that the residents had 21 days to provide feedback on the project.
SS7 neighbourhood action committee chairman Datuk Zul Mukhshar Md Shaari said the construction would lead to pollution of the area.
It would also worsen the traffic congestion on the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP) as well as SS7's inner roads.
"According to the circular, 2,891 units will be built. Imagine the huge number of cars then."
Zul said it would be a great loss to the sporting arena if the project took off.
The PKNS field and the sports complex have a legacy spanning three decades, besides being one of the venues for the Commonwealth Games in 1998.
"We would like to appeal to the state government to look into this issue as it is built on state land and to consider the effects on the residents," Zul said.
He said residents had put up with numerous projects in their area in the past.
"We had suffered and there should be a stop to this. This area is getting saturated."
He urged the city council to listen to the residents as the land was designated for sports or recreational use.
Zul also said the district land office had classified the PKNS field as a "clubhouse/recreational" zone. He said by law, it could not be sold or change hands without the permission of relevant authorities.
"We are not against development but we urge authorities to build more sustainable projects which protect the greenery and improve the overall living standards."
Committee member Datuk Bahador Shah Md Isa said Kelana Jaya residents were already facing many high-rise developments in the area.
"PKNS should be building public amenities that would benefit residents. They should not just clear greenery for the sake of raking in profits."
SS7 resident Maria Samad was disappointed that the city council only sent out circulars and feedback forms to a few houses.
"Only five received the letters. Most are left in the dark," she said.
Kelana Jaya member of parliament Loh Gwo Burne said the residents claims were legitimate and the developers would have to explain the development in detail.
He said the residents' views were important and the developers should also upgrade the residential inner roads to prevent bad traffic flow.
Loh said he was informed that the council would call for a meeting with all the stakeholders of the project by the end of the month.
A PKNS spokesman said the whole area would be redeveloped to enhance the living standards of its residents.
He said the project would include sports facilities as well as a dedicated ramp connecting the area with the LDP to disperse the anticipated increase in traffic.
"The SS7 residents' privacy will be guaranteed. Cars will not pass through the area as they will use the ramp from LDP," the official said.
"I'm truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs' death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely. "
