last weekend they got booth in Queensbay Mall.

For future buyers, just to let you know Delima Palace is located exactly behind Hrystal Heights(low cost flat)

So your view will be blocked by it. Eventhough you buy high floor, still you can see the flats in front of you.

Just for your information.

Visited the booth in qbay last weekend, was told that the PORR will cut across, rite infront of Delima palace and in between tat low cost.. how izit so? i think d distance between them is quite near rite?

I visited their booth last week at Queensbay also. Pen Properties is the main marketing agent. I like the floor plan of this place. The units layout is very unique and nice. They really cater for the higher end community.
I was impress with their idea of isolating the maid's room and toilet from the main house. And even a maid's own corridor and side door. Who would have tot of that. :)

this developer also develops gurney palace (GP) and according to the owners of GP, they are very satisfied with it. and some are back to support delima palace(DP). u may say its expensive but for 2600 sqft at 600k++ its reasonable. as long as the developer can complete the project and still delivers the quality he promised, i would say it will be good property. only 2 minor drawbacks, beside low cost (luckily only one project compare to those along jelutong expressway) and PORR (which we doubt whether it will be built). that's why i say "minor". greenlane has a nice and cosy housing environment. if i have the cash, 75% chances i will bet on it. time will tell which property is good which is not. win or lose, u will know when those properties are completed.

Please go to site and have a real good look... I bet you will think twice !!!

 
March 31, 2009 at 5:59 PMHalOooo

I thk this property is almost same as central part. why it is so unfamous???

 
April 6, 2009 at 10:27 PMkay

No active marketing for this project, low density, good location with good view and fresh air

 
September 13, 2009 at 4:08 PMAlan Ewe

Whatever that people worried about, I think this property is going to fetch a very good price judging from the per square foot price different with nearby properties like Platino. It simply too much different! Platino is around RM380++ while Delima is only around RM230++! My 2 cents opinion...

 
December 16, 2009 at 12:45 AMLeprechaungal

owners..looking for a unit..serious buyer..no agents pls..kindly pour me in ur best neg price and fetch a solid buyer!

 
April 1, 2010 at 2:01 PMLawrence

lauching price RM500k now want to sell for RM800k ?? wow, never know penang got so many water fish will buy it.

At nite time, when all the residents of the low cost park their car double park, some even tripple park on the road, i guess u need to learn to do driving stunt b4 u want to consider buy this 'overpriced' and 'overcrowed' place.

 
April 5, 2010 at 12:40 AMsokohaw

Same trick, same strategy..... buy 500k, sell 700k. If cannot sell, rent RM4k/month. It's every where in Penang now! It won't work anymore-lah brother & sister. I even "rugi" selling my landed property in SP Setia, you guys still trying to catch water fish even so many condos for sale right now???

 
May 14, 2010 at 2:02 AMLeprechaungal

looking for one within the price range of below to 600k...any owners on the potential price range?

 
June 30, 2010 at 8:09 AMJohn

when it started to launch, the selling price is RM500k, now people want to sell at RM800K, RM300K profit within 3 years !!! really a good return. furthermore RM800k to buy a non front sea view condo but front surrounded by the notorious low cost flat is really a bad bad bad decision. RM700k~RM800k condo you can buy a posh condo near at a better location.

Review..

I have view few time of the condo, found out that the price fly high after OC abtained just past few month.

Floor below 5 for unit 1,2,3 and 4 don’t worth a money to pay at high price. Many investor tent to increase and firm their price, but it just a piece of shit. It doesn’t worth money that the view have block by the low cost flat. Furthermore, those Agent markup the price and make it double.

For floor above 10, the view is awesome, it worth 750k to 800k+

Maintenance pay up to RM300, what do you think if it is expensive? because i don't see any facilities that is good enough.
The swimming pool is way too small, shame for a super condo standard. Don’t have any tennis/squash court; the sauna is as small as only can fit in 4 people same as the Jacuzzi.
And the only thing that worth a money is the Gym, the room is small, but the view is nice.
Don’t have any BBQ pit, function room, function hall!!

 
August 25, 2010 at 12:25 PMK

~~~~ Facilities Review ~~~~

The facilities not worth more than RM300 for this super condo. The swimming pool small like a fish pond. No BBQ Pit, No Tennis Court, No Squash. Sauna and Jacuzzi as small as only fix in 4 people, the only good facilities is GYM, equipment not much but the view nice.

 
August 25, 2010 at 12:41 PMK

~~~~ House Review ~~~~

Unit 1,2,3,4 below 5th floor has bad view, not good for investment.

Unit Above 10th floor, the view is awesome, price may go up to 750k+

The interior and the finishing for the quality are very fine and nice. The layout is not bad, but when you move in, at least another 100k min for renovation is required.

The worst thing is the all the window and sliding window, the material use are very low quality, is not a quality standard for a super condo.

Master bed room are very small for a super condo.

For unit 1 and unit 6, the bed room facing the hill is good and private and bright.
But for unit 2 to 5, the bed rooms facing the hill are dark due to the corridor is just behind the bedroom, you don’t have the privacy if you open your window due to walking people in the corridor. You have to seal your window 24 hours. People can just stand at the corridor and see in your room, of course there is a few feet gap.

 
August 25, 2010 at 2:04 PMDav

Kind of agree on the facilities part...lots of medium range condos have much better facilities than this. But to be fair, even though at RM300, the management fee is only around RM0.11/ft which is considered low in the market.

Unit 6 is probably the best unit among the lots and true, the privacy for the back room & kitchen of Unit 2 ~ 5 is kind of lacking due to the close proximity to the walkway.

In terms of security, the TnG card system is good and it's needed even to access to the lift lobby. However, the concern may be on the security guard house which is located too far away from the carpark.

Anyway, I guess it will take someone to really love the unit and see pass the low cost flat right in front to pay anything more than RM850k (even for the best unit 6 higher floor).

Just wonder if there's any transaction done above rm850k yet..

 
August 29, 2010 at 12:55 PMJohn

800k+++ for this kind of condo? you sellers must be thinking the buyers a big water fish. let see how far the sellers have the holding power.

Dear John and ALL, there has been some debate about escalating property prices in Penang island which is driven by speculators, foreigners and greedy developers. To help Bank Negara and other government bodies to help us Penangites own our state and afford housing in our own state, do write to: bnmtelelink@bnm.gov.my and tell them the actual state of affair in Penang. I have. I don't know if LGE is doing anything as yet, probably this need some push from the Federal government. Please help Penangites own reasonable homes and not get pinched out of our own state. Angeline C.

There are always cheaper home in Penang just 9 minutes across the bridge and second bridge is coming up soon. Cheaper means 60% off. RM1000k property will cost only RM400k. If you drive further down another 9 minutes, you can save an additional 10% from the RM1000k which is RM300k. If you can’t afford to stay in places such as New York, London, Paris, Copenhagen, Oslo, Zurich, Moscow, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc, then find something in the outskirt.

We need speculators, Foreign Direct Investment and a little greedy developers to push our property prices to a new high as this will be a chain reaction for us to move to the next level.

 
September 26, 2010 at 8:16 PMTan

there are few units for sale in developer office which is below 700k.... i wonder why others selling high here.

 
November 12, 2010 at 8:26 AMDaeren

What's the occupancy rate of this condo?

 
December 19, 2010 at 10:26 AMtan

Hanging in tough...

How long they can hold on?

 
January 16, 2011 at 9:15 AMJJ

Visited my friend's high floor unit.
Really nice, fantastic view, its cooling and 28 degree only at living hall without a/c switch on on January's sunny noon.
The place cool enough, they dont have to get the a/c on the at all. Electricity bill less than RM100.
Regretted for not buying when launched, now above 16th floor had gone up to 900k, cant afford.
Sometime listen to people talking what and what, what low cost in front the building, what porr, what bubbles will burst price will drop... all bullshxx.
Now there are living there comfortably with nothing to complain, and enjoy their property's value gain.

 
February 23, 2011 at 10:52 AMEwe

I heard that the swimming pool is the smallest in Malaysia. Is it truth? How big is the size?

 
March 9, 2011 at 9:53 PMtan

I guess the occupancy rate is very low.

 
April 25, 2011 at 7:46 PMtan

Start to see a lot of posting in Mudah.

The speculators start to panick after OC ~1 year?

 
April 27, 2011 at 12:43 PMkucing

tan,

don't be misled by advert in Mudah etc..

I just realise some owners used many brokers and they (at least 10 of it) all advertised for the same house !

I called up and learn in fact there is in fact only a few units (less than 5) for sale !!

 
April 30, 2011 at 11:05 PMJJ

Heard from a resident friend, recent transaction on high floor at 960k for a 2600sqf unit. ROI is very good. But not on Penthouse 6000 sqf's unit. With selling at 1.8m, reasons, 1.Investors wont buy at this price @ this location because not easy to rent out, most expat. prefer to stay at Tg Bunga area. 2. Space too large to stay. more..

 
May 3, 2011 at 4:11 PMkucing

I have checked and not many left in the market for sale ! Those at middle floor (10th) also asking for ridiculous high price of RM980k !

Those low floors blocked by low cost flat are selling around 700k plus only ! (but no takers !)
Buyers won't mind pay premium for good view ! Those high floor really offer a fantastic unobstructed view ! As the condo is constructed at high level, their 21 floor (top) view is anytime equal to 40 floors view of those constructed at flat level !!
(as once I viewed from the top floor, it seems higher than Central Park (top 35 floor) roof top !)

 
May 19, 2011 at 5:36 PMMoreThanHappy

i m more than happy to stay there, but i see many still kosong .... kena stuck there i think

 
September 20, 2011 at 2:46 AMHenotiator

July 16, 2012 at 11:33 AMSummer

Hi Kucing,

November 17, 2014 at 2:44 AMAnonymous
