January 14, 2008 at 5:10 PMAnonymous

Any facilities for this condominium? Swimming pool ? gym ? etc ?

January 15, 2008 at 11:18 AMAnonymous

When the property was released 2 yrs back, you might be able to get the "Type C" for 214k+ from developer but now that the whole property is totally sold off except "Type A" forget about it.

Yes, it is a luxury condominium with great furnishing, shower closet, high ceiling (10'), 2 lifts serving 3 units per floor, quality tiles & timber flooring for bedrooms, swimming pool, gym, BBQ, CCTV and etc. Great location minden height among bungalows.

Only 1 carpark. RM300K+

January 29, 2008 at 5:40 PMAnonymous

does anyone know when the construction is scheduled to be completed?
when OC?

thanks

January 29, 2008 at 10:39 PMAnonymous

Will complete by end of Mac and OC most probably will obtain by Jun only.

January 31, 2008 at 9:00 PMAnonymous

Carpark should not be a concern there since it is the only condo there and no other property at the road serving it. all the road side parking for only the condo. The opposite side is USM so no new property wll be build there.

February 2, 2008 at 8:00 PMAnonymous

is this freehold or leasehold? tks

February 2, 2008 at 9:12 PMAnonymous

freehold. interested?

February 14, 2008 at 4:56 PMAnonymous

Do you notice that there is only one access road to this condo? The only way is from gelugor road, there is no access way from Gambier road.

February 15, 2008 at 9:18 PMAnonymous

Agreed, but compare this project with others luxury condo, feel it's more worth it to purchase in term of location, low density and freehold.

February 22, 2008 at 11:56 AMAnonymous

Hi, just wanna check whether we could purchase the carpark from 16th floor onwards? Is the carpark now on sale?

February 22, 2008 at 11:58 AMAnonymous

Please advice what is the price right now for Type B unit? Anyone interested of selling?

February 22, 2008 at 12:02 PMAnonymous

Hi,

Thanks for your information. For the moment, just interested on Type B unit...sorry ya...

February 24, 2008 at 7:06 PMAnonymous

lower floors will not have 2 carparks as the developer only allows those above 15th floor to buy the additional carpark. Another words for 2 carparks lots u expect to pay at least 30-50k extra for high floor and carpark. Not worth it.

February 25, 2008 at 9:19 AMAnonymous

400k? then i better buy bayswater.

February 25, 2008 at 9:56 AMAnonymous

For location wise, Bayswater is more strategic place but for leisure and family type of place, Palm Palladium is better for its location at Minden Heights....more relaxing and cooling place to stay...

Basically, we could not compare it as design wise, Palm Palladium is better than Bayswater...

February 25, 2008 at 9:59 AMAnonymous

Well you can but bayswater selling at 460k, built-up 1313 only & 8 units per floor. And only certain side of the building will have view.

Take note that palm palladium is 3 units per floor.

http://www.iproperty.com.my/property/listing.asp?pid=79876

February 25, 2008 at 1:17 PMAnonymous

how much is the maintanance fees per month?

February 25, 2008 at 1:18 PMAnonymous

hahhaha, first time heard ppl say palm palladium location better than bayswater. if really so, the price oledi higher than bayswater. in term of design, facility n management, bayswater really good compared to palm palladium. every bayswater unit hv 2 covered carpark, smart security system and even hv free broadband service at commaon area. although it has 8 units per floor, every tower hv 3 lifts + 1 cargo lift (for sampah collection, renovation work & moving use).

i think for palladium, only the units at higher floor hv 2 carpark, n not convenient as ppl need to travel far to enter palm paladdium.

can brief us on wat is the major attraction?

February 25, 2008 at 4:48 PMAnonymous

1. low density, each floor 3 units sharing 2 lifts.
2. location wise, temporary Bayswater is more convenient but in future u can reach Minden Heights thru Bukit Gambier.
FYI, if u back from Georgtown by using Jelutong Highway, then u cant turn into Bayswater and must make a big u-turn at USM or thru Sg Pinang exit.
1313 sqft cost RM460K (RM350 per sqft) but Palm Palladium only 1349 sqft cost RM400K (RM300 per sqft)

February 25, 2008 at 5:54 PMAnonymous

I think most people thinks that bayswater is much better then Palm Palladium but clearly Palm Palladium is much value for money.

Another thing is I feel lately bayswater there is very congested and will be even worst when Platino, the light waterfront {no more view :( } and the empty land there developed.

Anyway no point to argue just buy what u think is right

February 25, 2008 at 6:58 PMAnonymous

Yes, u r right and no point to argue here. As long as u feel that place worth to buy, then just go ahead to buy or invest. Are you one of the owner of Palm Palladium? :-)

February 25, 2008 at 10:08 PMAnonymous

400K???? so expensive. I better buy vista gambier.The price only around 330k with 1350 Square feet. Completed soon and got almost all the facilities as Palm Palladium.400k is just too much.

February 25, 2008 at 10:18 PMAnonymous

location wise and developer lo. mayb u r right more worth to buy Vista Gambier.

February 25, 2008 at 11:16 PMAnonymous

location - i dun think palm palladium location is a attraction for buyer. no amenities nearby, not convenient.

traffic - in future u can reach Minden Heights thru Bukit Gambier.
in future mean how many years? 5 years? 10 years? haha.

view - what view? seaview? i think it is too far.

developer - what is the track record of developer? not really a well known developer in penang.

i think 400k is not worth, even d-piazza i-regency n vista gambier also cheaper than this. hard to get a buyer to buy it 400k at the mean time.

bayswater is overpriced? the land of bayswater sited is obviously better appreciation value than minden height a lot. platino is sold at 7++k above. now bayswater is sold at least 450k, and still ppl interested to own it. ask a property agent or banker, then you will know which property and the location is hot. get a valuer for ur property b4 u say it is worth 400k.

so far, my banker tell me that the location that will appreciate in value is metro-east (bayswater site) and the d-piazza site.

if u buy bayswater unit, bank even can give u special rate, because they value it high and if ur property get auction, they will also get good return.

February 25, 2008 at 11:53 PMAnonymous

if u feel bayswater area is congested, this prove that the area is favourable and location is good. KLCC area in KL also crowded with ppl and the price is rocketing high because it is convenient in term of location.

don't tell me the location is good because it is quiet and relaxing, then i think balik pulau is less congested and relaxing.

February 26, 2008 at 12:48 PMAnonymous

Just wait another 2 months this project will fully completed, then we will know actual prices for this project and no point to argue here.

February 26, 2008 at 2:35 PMAnonymous

Have confirmed with the developer (Harta Itan)that there is no access road via Jln Bkt Gambier to this condo.The only access road is via Jln Gelugor which take around 4 to 5 minutes to reach the condo from the main road :(

February 26, 2008 at 6:53 PMAnonymous

I'm looking for Type E with 2 car parks. Anyone know what's the original purchase price for Type E. Thanks.

February 26, 2008 at 7:21 PMAnonymous

Just curious why there is a bayswater supporter here blogging at palm palladium blog.

Because you want to buy palm palladium and can't afford one? or just plain stupid. :)

Well there is a baywaters blog that u can praise bayswater all you want :D Go do it there bayswater fan boy!!!

And if you are wondering if i am a palm palladium fan then yes cuz I BLOG HERE!

Vista gambier is a mountain side development.

February 26, 2008 at 7:54 PMAnonymous

Someone mention vista gambier completing soon..well it is expected June 09.On thing to note that this is the first project for the developer and until today only completed piling and sold only 65%. Well price wise is rather reasonable but a bit risky. D'piazza also risky (developer = Xscan) :S

Anyone wanna sell type "B" or "D" unit? 1-2 carpark is fine. Price less than 350k?

February 26, 2008 at 8:18 PMAnonymous

Only interested on type "B" and "D"? How bout type "C"? Are you interested?

February 27, 2008 at 10:36 AMAnonymous

Anyone wanna sell his/her units? with 2 carparks. how much is the maintanance fees per month?

February 27, 2008 at 8:03 PMAnonymous

with 1 car park don't want? maintenance roughly RM0.14 per sqft.

February 27, 2008 at 8:36 PMAnonymous

I haven't login here for a long time and I just found out my subsale page has been removed. I have a type "D" wth 1 carpark but the problem is I already have a buyer. He agreed to pay me downpayment by next week. If that didn't happen I will inform here. Thanks.

February 28, 2008 at 3:18 PMAnonymous

Any once wanna sell Type B and D with 1-2 car park.
Price <<350K?

February 28, 2008 at 8:32 PMAnonymous

For type B and D, I think >350K. With <350K, you only can get type C.

February 28, 2008 at 10:50 PMAnonymous

Current market price is above
RM250 per sq ft and believe the price will keep on increasing in next few month when OC obtain by then. I've been looking for that condo as well but seem do not have any seller response to me.

February 28, 2008 at 11:13 PMAnonymous

Maybe you should call up Harta Intan and check whether there is anyone interested to sell the unit? Maybe lady luck might be on your side...

February 28, 2008 at 11:13 PMAnonymous

end of last year already RM260 per sqft from developer. if u want to sub-sale, then I think higher than RM260 per sqft.

February 29, 2008 at 9:16 AMAnonymous

Wait for a week, if my buyer fail to pay me the downpayment then i will sell my type "D" unit with 1 carpark at 350k or slightly below.

February 29, 2008 at 9:22 AMAnonymous

Wat do u mean mountain side development? If like that then i should call Palm Palladium project as "kampung side development!!!

February 29, 2008 at 9:30 AMAnonymous

R there any market or hypermarket near Palm Palladium like Bayswater?

February 29, 2008 at 9:39 AMAnonymous

nothing around palladium area, not convenient. no restaurant, no hypermarket, nothing....:(

February 29, 2008 at 9:47 AMAnonymous

no hypermarket nearby, but hv logi kumbahan behind palm palladium. :)

February 29, 2008 at 5:44 PMAnonymous

"Mountain side development" means that part of the building sits on the hill side\cliff. If you are just going to be a kid and whine on every little thing ppl say then pls.. do it some where else. Be constructive "boy". Since there are so many bangalows there then i guess ppl just like to stay in kampung rather then next to a big mall. I think you just have to accept the fact that a lot of ppl like PP for the quiet environment and low density. Anyway I-regency's latest pricing is already ~380k for 1300 sqft (completion june 09).

Just a reminder NOBODY stopping u from buying Bayswater or Vista gambier. Go and buy all u want but i see no point u being here whinning? Everyone is CONFUSE on your motive.

Anyway the fact that PP is way inside in minden height is a fact and the only road into the condominium now is from gelugor but they have open a junction opposite kampungku. Another words not needed to pass brown garden anymore if you are coming from Bridge. And if you look at wikimapia there will be a road to Bukit Gambier from the side of U garden to a project of Semi-Ds. I do not know when the project will be ready but there is already a few show units there. Anyway why borther, PP selling point is quiet neighbourhood and low density and if you really need modern conviniences it is just mins away. if u want all major shops and mall beside ur house then forget about PP and get Bayswater of better still Times Square condo.

Balik Pulau will be totally crowded by now if it is not that we have to travel far and over mountain. There is nothing bad about that place at all.

And finally BOY, iF u feel that PP is like a kampung development since it is peace and quiet and surrounded by bangalows. Then you can charge me guilty being a kampung boy all you want :D Investors go somewhere else, PP is a place to start a family. A thing that u guys will never understand only a true parent will.

February 29, 2008 at 7:48 PMAnonymous

BOY.....u are so childish...pls be a grown up child and praise your Bayswater at Bayswater blog....don't you know how to read English?? If you do not like PP, then don't come to this blog! As simple as that....oh yeah, just got a news from Harta Intan that OC is going to be approve by Jun or Jul,08.

"Anonymous said...

Hi there, i believe condo which is under construction will have difficulties to do a sub-sales. If i am not mistaken, it needs to go through plenty of paper work (consent letter) at Developer & Lawyer side. And also i believe that this process will take 3 to 6 months duration.

Just a question, are you allow to sell your unit without a consent letter?

March 2, 2008 at 12:02 PMAnonymous

anyone is owner for this condo?

March 3, 2008 at 12:15 AMAnonymous

Am interested in your Type D unit. How much is your downpayment? Can the balance be paid only after all the paper work is in place? Based on earlier feedback, it takes about 3 to 6 months to clear?

March 3, 2008 at 12:23 AMAnonymous

Refer to the above blog posted on 2.3.08.

This is what my friend (a developer) mentioned b4.

Mayb different developer has different time frame to process the consent letter.

I'm not sure for this project, that's y i am waiting for his reply.

March 3, 2008 at 11:41 AMAnonymous

I am the owner of the type "D" unit. My lawyer has submitted to the developer for the consent letter weeks ago. Pending reply.

The agreement that i had with my buyer is that he has to pay me the downpayment and later S&P. Typical process is 2% for downpayment and followed by 8% (2 weeks later) for S&P. If consent letter is obtain then the full amount need to be settled based agreement.

If i am not able to get the consent letter then he just have to settle the rest after my bank fully release all the money.

Consent letter is only needed when the buyer bank release money to the owner bank. Another words it is not needed anymore if 100% released.

March 3, 2008 at 7:31 PMAnonymous

i think i didn't explain it clearly on the consent letter part. it is needed if the developer still need to claim money from the bank of the purchaser. For example, as of now the developer has claim 80% from my bank. When i sell my property to a new buyer. The developer has to give a consent that he is ok with the switch. Another words, claming the remaining 20% from the new buyer's bank. So when it is 100% released, consent letter is no longer needed. Anyway a typical sub-sale process takes 2-3 months.

March 3, 2008 at 11:21 PMAnonymous

Thank you for your reply. I'd like to scout around during the coming property fair just in case there may be a project that catches my attention. I shall still keep your unit as one of the possible options. Shall let you know the outcome after that...that is if your unit is still available.

March 4, 2008 at 8:49 PMAnonymous

No worries, scout all you want. There will be no new properties with this luxury, dropping into ths price range anymore.

March 4, 2008 at 11:50 PMAnonymous

By the way, why didn't you buy another car park lot? As we have two cars, I wonder if it will be a problem parking one car outside. Will youor unit be on the lower or higher floor?

March 5, 2008 at 6:23 PMAnonymous

When will the coming property fair?

March 5, 2008 at 8:34 PMAnonymous

next friday till sun (14th~16th/Mar), PISA.

March 5, 2008 at 10:03 PMAnonymous

anyone know what the original price of this properties? especially type B, C and D?

do you mind to let us know? appreciated...

March 6, 2008 at 1:24 AMAnonymous

Hi Owner for the below

"Wait for a week, if my buyer fail to pay me the downpayment then i will sell my type "D" unit with 1 carpark at 350k or slightly below."

May i know which floor are unit on ?

March 6, 2008 at 3:18 PMAnonymous

To ans the question about buying the additional carpark, well it depends on how u look at it. To buy an additional carpark at palm palladium requires at least 30-50k extra (for the higher floors and the carpark). Well i just don't feel its worth it since there are plenty of space out on the side. And it will only be used by palm palladium folks.

And well i prefer space compared to view. You need to pay the same price for a higher floor type "C" unit compared to a lower floor type "D".

I also feel the view should be good enough on the 7th floor since nothing to block and more convinient for those with older parents in case the lift is not working/power failure. Just a few floors down to carpark :D. Anyway these are just my thought and my preference. I am sure some will not agree, but pls don't response with your unsatisfactory. Like i said that is just my thought :P

March 9, 2008 at 6:41 PMAnonymous

if i am not mistaken, i did ask from the developer last time (3mths ago) that the actual price for those 1300sf is selling from RM 250k onwards.

March 10, 2008 at 7:17 PMAnonymous

During launch which is 2 years + back. The price already ~RM200 per sq ft. Several months later the developer raise another ~7%. Late last year when they open show room for Type "A", it was raised another ~15-20% (with lowest price of ~RM500k). That time the last 2 type "C" units already selling at >290k (~RM260 per sqft)

March 12, 2008 at 10:02 AMAnonymous

guys, for those who interested to buy this condo, pls think twice!! few days back, i went to see the condo (of cource it still under construction, but near to completion). the indian jaga is a very kind old man who brought me inside the condo to see the layout; well, it really surpised me that the carpark, lift, swimming pool(at 6th floor), overall landscape are very small. everything seems to be squeezed together in order make use of the land area to build as many thing as possible. the car park ceiling height is very low that small lorry surely not able to drive thru. the lift is like those in low cost flat, small and ugly, staircase is too too narrow. as a summary, the developer used the land size to build this condo which suppose to build a row of about 8 landed house. furthermore, it is side by side with the palm residence double storey landed house, very near, just like your neighbour.
pls go to take a look at the condo,and have a feeling of this squeezed landscape. it is true you may enjoy 1000++ sqft condo, but when you step out of the unit, the environment really piss you off. also, lot of bugs and mosquito over there (you will know when you see it).
the indian jaga will be there daily after 5.30pm. for lady, dont go alone..

March 12, 2008 at 10:56 AMAnonymous

a guy from the contruction area told me that there going to be another condo just right in front of pp (the land is currently owned by usm). if this is true, pp will depreciate badly coz it is blocking by another condo....i think this could be possible, by seeing how developer make used of the small land area to build PP, they could make another miracle to use another limit land size to build the so called 'pangsapuri mewah'...
spend 350k+- to buy a lousy condo that could be depreciated, i dont think so...
pp could be a nightmare...

March 12, 2008 at 11:49 AMAnonymous

Just want to make a few correction on the above statement.

1) The swimming pool is on the 5th floor. It starts with Ground floor.

2) Low carpark ceiling is common. check out The Spring, greenlane park and etc.

3) The so called landed Palm Residences are double storey bangalows sold at > 1.2Mil ages ago

4) Lots of bugs and mosquitos then i guess would be the same to all gambier heights condo.

5) USM land cannot be sold for development but there is plan for a condo just right behind I-Regency that will open the road between them. Only blocking type "A" the most. checkout wikimapia to understand better.

6) Landscape usually skew with density. Else it will be very very expensive.

Well the rest no comment, it clearly depends on each and everyone's view point. What will be your priority, landscape or house size for the same value? What you uses or needed more most of the time? :D

March 12, 2008 at 12:18 PMAnonymous

for those who bought it, good luck. for those intend to buy, go 'inside' the condo to see what it may become; then decide whether you are willing to live in such environment.
350k+-, is PP the only choice??

cheers

Common doesnt means we have to accept it :)

March 12, 2008 at 2:12 PMAnonymous

True but just wondering why the height of the carpark is a concern?

Anyway do check around, with ~RM350k what option you really have today with this size and density. And how much diff the landscape is.

Another thing to note, just a few key furnishing point, the condo ceiling itself is 10' high, with tiles up to ceiling for kitchen & batrooms and shower curtain for all bathrooms. And quality flooring tiles, not the pink one u usually gets.

March 12, 2008 at 3:05 PMAnonymous

ceiling hight not a concern? just go and see, and you know what i mean. i dont want to describe anymore, picture is worth a thousand words.
i really hope the quality of the unit is as good as you mentioned. but bare in mind, show unit can be different from actual unit, this happened for some developers. good luck to those who bought it.
if you prefer spacious unit size, probably pp can suit your need, but keep yourself inside the house most of the time, dont come out, nothing you can enjoy.
spend some time to find out what you can do with 350k, or call up the property agent to find out more, they will tell how to spend your cash. do some homework can save your $$. this is my advice to those who plan to buy pp. those who already sign snp, ignore this comment. March 12, 2008 at 3:23 PMKitty Hi Guys, I am plan to buy a unit in PP. But it seems many -ve comments about this condo and many uncertainty like the link to the main road, future development around that area that could affect the value of PP, the quality, landscape and bla bla bla. Is it worth to buy this condo? I found PP is a bit obscurity for me. Can anyone please advice whether it worth to buy? Many Thanks in advance March 12, 2008 at 3:38 PMAnonymous I agreed, most of the time the show unit or demo will b much different with the actual unit. I remember the first launch of the bungalow by PP, they mentioned to me there will b no condo build behind the bungalow but today wht we can see is how close the condo built behind the bungalow. Wht is the feeling if you are the house owner spending more than a million to buy a house which a multi level carpark is attached behind your hoouse. Everyday the dust and the sound pollution flying into your house. How bad is the Feng Shui especially for chinese. Do u think the bungalow still have resale value...!!!! Do u think the developer have ethic???? March 12, 2008 at 4:02 PMAnonymous i went up to pp 4th floor car park, and guess what? i can see clearly what people doing inside the million dollar bungalow!! it is an open car park. what came into my mind was, if i am a bad guy, i can break into the bungalow from pp carpark easily. because it simply too close to each other. i pity those who buy the bungalow, what can they do after spending million of dollar and end up into this dilemma. no privacy, not secure. March 12, 2008 at 5:18 PMAnonymous Hi Kitty, my advise for you is go see for yourself & decide. See if it is really that bad and if it matters to u. Do not go alone. The -ve message that you see here is from the same person that went up a few days back. Relax man. A lot of ppl also went to see the condo when they open the type "A" showroom. And well I don't think they have the same opinion with you cuz the developer successfully sold nearly all the left over units especially those type "A" that cost over 500k. With min RM250+ per sq ft. To be honest the swimming pool and landscape area is smaller. If that is a concern go for higher density projects. Usually bigger. Anyway i think there are a lot of misleading facts. The bangalows' owner were aware of the condo cuz they have the privilege to use the facility. And they need to pay maintanence fee for it. Another thing I saw the empty unit and the furnishing is per written above. Ceiling height is important for drop down/paster ceiling, aircon and ceiling fan. March 12, 2008 at 8:24 PMAnonymous misleading facts ?????haha...do u think in this world got such stupid people paying million dollars to purchase a bungalow just right behind a multi level carpark to let all the people looking inside your house?smell the dust? and to leave the house with no resale value and depreciate?? IF you still say yes then i surrender. I personally visited the show house during the launching few years back and the sales people is very firmed telling me no condo will be build. March 12, 2008 at 9:59 PMAnonymous suddenly so many bad comments on this project but I think the price reasonable. If everything also perfect, for sure that project very expensive. March 12, 2008 at 10:15 PMhkl Don't go for this condo. Bad Feng Sui...... THere are still many choices like The Spring, Vista Gabier and Oasis. March 12, 2008 at 10:28 PMAnonymous I've been shop around this few projects as mentioned but honestly PP is better and a bit regret now cos didn't booked one during launching. Talking about Feng Shui, i'm not so particular March 12, 2008 at 10:32 PMAnonymous If compare with The Spring, The Oasis and Vista Gambier, I think PP better. This only my own opinion. March 13, 2008 at 3:16 AMAnonymous Hey...guy please wake up now we are talking about the condo not the bungalow, not point for you to care about the bungalow presale value. For me i know normally the valuers code a house value they will refer to the surrounding area, enviroment and house look new or old. For Minden Heigths old terrace house the value already up to 1 million why you all still worried !! All valuable property is surrounding PP condo. For the spring leasehold property. Don't forget ur house will be see or near to the The Big Sewage. Do you think that is called good feng shui?! For Vista Gambir i feel not privacy, per floor 8 units compare to Palm Palladium per floor only 3 units with 2 lifts. For completion sill have to wait for another 1year ++. Oasis is a new launching project still have to wait 2++ or 3 years for completed. near to school :( If you feel other project is suitable, you can go ahead nobody will stop you. March 13, 2008 at 8:07 AMRambo Per floor 3 units is bcoz no more space to built ma, ha ah. Serve with 2 lifts for 3 unit? Em...'small and ugly' one wo, really worry... March 13, 2008 at 9:20 AMJJ Folk, I know this is PP blog, just my comment on the bungalow around that area. Dont shot me :) No doubt houses around Mainden Height are expensive, but what it gonna do with PP? Is staying in PP make you feel like you are one of this millionaire group? Furthermore, I am also doubt will anyone willing to spend so much of money to buy a bungalow that attached with the multi storey carpark? It really annouying. Initially I was intended to invest on PP, but not anymore. Reasons: 1) The condo design suck. I dont have confidence it can has good return 2) The developer not honest 3) Not sure what going to happen around that area. Another condo/flat? If they build flat, then really cham liao. March 13, 2008 at 9:47 AMkitty Hi, Thanks for advice ^_^. Will go there and take a look. Hope not raining anymore. March 13, 2008 at 10:04 AMAnonymous Of course we will go ahead to buy whtever property we wish to buy and definitely nobody will stop us...but this is the blog whereby everybody hv the right to discuss about strength and the weakness of the condo. If you only want the positive comment to be pulished. You can go and create your own personal blog then nobody will go and disturb u.You can stay back and enjoy the so called " Positive comments" March 13, 2008 at 10:44 AMAnonymous 100% agree and support. guys, lets be open, everything has 2 side. for those who already bought it, thing and see what you can do to improve the environment; probably you can talk with the developer. understand your feeling by for those who has plan, this is for your reference. dont invest or buy anything blindly with your hard earned$$.

I just went and had a look at the surrounding, i thought the "Loji Kumbahan" will smell like shit, but i didnt smell any, may be it is well closed, and for the car park, the ceiling height is low but i think for 4 wheels or MPV shouldnt be a problem, small van and lorry definitely cannot go in, but i think this is common problem for all condos and apartment, for the design, i think it is good especially for type A,B. The swimming pool is small, mm...but i think it should cater well for only 134 units with enough privacy. Some of the condos, the swimming pool is built on ground floor, so it just likes having swimsuit show and you are the model where stranger on the street can peep into, Hahaha. The worse thing is may be the long way to get into the condo, if you are not penang folks, definitely you cannot get to that condo. Luckily i can just follow the sign board established by the developer and get there. I think the price of this condo greatly depends on how convenience the link to this condo. if there is a link to Jln Yeap Chor Yee, the price of this condo will shoot up. Like some of you said, if there is a flat to be built near it, good luck for those who buy because it is too congested. Good news to the buyer if the current empty ground behind I-regency is decided to build more banglows. There are positive and negative site of this condo and the buyer definitely cannot change anything of it, it's still depends on how the developer choose the management and security team to handle this condo in the future.

March 13, 2008 at 2:17 PMAnonymous

About the land behind I-Regency, which of the following will make more money:
1) Bungalow. Not many unit can build
2) Apartment/Falt. Many many many unit can build

No one know what will happen :(

Thought??

March 13, 2008 at 2:30 PMAnonymous

swimming pool is for us to execise and relax one...some more build on top of parking area, a bit scarry, dont dare to park the car under 5th floor leh..:) if the pool is small then quit sian lo..no point to swim becoz can not enjoy blue sky white cloud and sense of freedom :(..small pool for 134 unit, enough meh??

March 13, 2008 at 3:10 PMAnonymous

The swimming pool's width is short but the length is quite long. There is another small pool, not sure what that for, probably for children. I used to stay in Gambier Height a year ago which cater for 700++ unit, but you seldom see people got into the swimming pool to have a splash. And if the swimming pool is too huge, i felt scary if nobody swims there. You make a point that swimming pool build in sixth floor is scary, but may be for those who like the pool at high floor, it is another feeling and lifestyle, which you cant find elsewhere. For the parking under the swimming pool, mm...it is really a risk, but i think the developer will have confident in doing some waterproofing method to secure the water leaking, if not, the developer will not have another condo built in penang, because everybody will scare of this developer. Most of the developer intends to build a signature building of their own in penang, so the one who spoil their own fame deserve to be eliminated in penang.

March 13, 2008 at 4:39 PMAnonymous

If nobody wan to swim in the pool, few possibilities lo:
1) the water is dirty
3) ppl can not swim :p
4) the pool is not attractive or too small to swim, no meaning it only take you 1 minute to swim from end to the other :)
5) the pool might collapse bcoz it is not on groud flr :)

It is depend on the maintenace work la. You pay more $$then water cleaner lo, but the size the same la :p I am not agree the point abt the developer. Nowaday, as long as there is house/condo/apartment build in Penang, ppl will faster grab it regardless what developer, worry to lose(kia su). Penang ppl always think early bird always can save a lot of money lo. or oso make a lot of money. So if the developer spoil one project (as long as the condo not collapse), ppl still buy the property for their next project...this is life in Penang :( Anyway, I will rate PP as apartment, it not qualify as condo. For the car park, just pray not getting the parking lot under the pool, otherwise really 'sui' March 13, 2008 at 4:55 PMAnonymous You are right when you mention freedom of speech but fren facts are welcome but please remove you own feeling and emotion. No one will appreciate that. And please don't create rumors or simply speculate without concrete facts. All condo has another condo or houses on the side. Take note that the condo you mention plans to build on USM land. You think that is possible? chances are much slimmer compared to other projects unless the condo belongs to USM. If the land behind I-regency build flat don't you think I-Regency will suffer more? If you worry about cheap flats, i think you shouldn't consider The Spring. Just my simple advice to all. This blog has been the longest of all but when you read through do take your own judgement to remove rumors from facts and decide on your own. March 13, 2008 at 5:01 PMAnonymous A lot of condos has swimming pool above the car park. That includes Vista Gambier, Regency Height and even those condo in gurney & greenlane. Don't just simply create fear. One will feel scared when they are ignorant March 13, 2008 at 5:04 PMAnonymous Just buy if you feel comfortable otherwise just wait until the CF is issued and then see for yourself whether it's worth it. It's going to be only a few more months. Me thinks maybe the anon who kept writing -ve comments is a sales rep from one of the rival developer? March 13, 2008 at 5:12 PMAnonymous Pls...Regency Height swinning pool is not build on top of the car park, my god. For Vista Gambier, how you so sure. I am doubt of what you've wrote. March 13, 2008 at 5:20 PMAnonymous To angry ppl(may be the buyer of PP la): I just giving my comment ma, what is wrong with that. These are thing we really need to consider, right or not?? Aiyo, some ppl really what to see and hear good thing only, when something affect their interest, then get angry pula. Anyway, you own the PP unit, so 'enjoy'. Fren, open ur mind, ur eye, ur ear a bit to see and listen. No more comment from me in this blog. March 13, 2008 at 5:36 PMAnonymous Do you even know that there is a so called underground carpark in regency height where you enter near block D. I guess many ppl not aware is due to the main entrance is at the swimming pool level same as vista gambier. Those projects sit on the side of the hill protruding out. So the question is what is below the swimming pool or landscape area? :D Before you make a further fool of yourself. Please check! A lot of condo having swimming pool above ground. I think except IJM and those having high density project on leasehold lands. That is why they charge you dearly for their condo or very high density to cover cost. Property fair is tomorrow, go and have a look. March 13, 2008 at 7:11 PMAnonymous [To angry ppl(may be the buyer of PP la): I just giving my comment ma, what is wrong with that.

March 13, 2008 at 8:08 PMAnonymous wah such a long blog... I am not a buyer or an owner... just sharing my opinion...kapo only... don't bomb me.. :P i stayed in cond/apt and flat all my life. Well my thought and i guess the same as a lot other high rise dwellers in penang thinks, end of the day, the only thing that matters is the size of your house, conviniences, your windows/views, lifts, security and neighbours. carparks if you got plenty of cars. Because 99% of the time that is what really matters and u will fully use. PP security not bad ma..nobody will break in ur house cuz plenty of bunglows there..hahaha.. so good security :P price RM250 per sq ft hum...not expensive lo but if can reduce a bit more better still...those owner will kill me...will checkout property fair tomolo. i think 240 - 280 is very reasonable lo. PP kalah sikit lo when it comes to conviniences... everything also have to drive out lo and deep lo.. i guess that is why the price still cannot shoot.. if road open to gambier height .. i don't think anyone will sell at this price... windows must face outside.. got view even better... my current room i staying one face inside one.. always very dark.. morning & night also cannot tell..need to turn on lights at morning sein only.. some more no sunlight smelly.. so i very picky on this :P lift also important when u need to go toilet and wait for lift. if ur block got many units.. then u will know...hehehe carpark .. important for a few car owner..i got one only so don't care.. but i went to PP see once, next door USM.. no condo anymore .. so the road outside can use lo. also good when got visitors.. usually condo private visitor carpark tak cukup one. And most important of all, neighbours..if u live with bo a kai ppl..very sein one... so the community is very important lo... but no choice .. u will never know until u stay in..but i think ppl that buy PP cannot be that bad kua..i heard the condo is bought by many FIZ engineers or anjing liar..ngek ngek ngek I see a lot of ppl compliant very extra one...where u stay in penang no flat or condo one... tai low.. some more.. complaint about bangalow can see in and such .....if u don't like then buy all the land ma no condo beside lo... u see gurney .. u see greenlane.. u see gambier... all place also like that la..u think every condo like bayswater or platino meh...even now they are side by side :P.... penang land so expensive.. for sure ppl use one la. Some more scared of swimming pool on top of carpark...tai low... I can easily name you 20 condo/apt that has that...so common de...I think those complain one sure never stay in high rise. another funny one, feng sui also comes out...hahaha...tai low .. u try to scare kid meh...some more fengsui is depend on ppl and inside ur own house one la... i really like to know where this ppl stay...Eh kawan tell us where you stay la... March 13, 2008 at 8:25 PMAnonymous hehehe..i think i missout somthing... price..cause this will determine the value... don't take a 400 per sqft property and compare with 200 one la. doesn't make sense ma. furnishing also part of price.. cause if u need to reno later u also need to pay. I went to the show house, bedroom is laminated floor, not bad lo but don't believe everything in show house :P .. but i see a post above mention the real unit the same wor. hehehe i think i blog too much de... enjoy ur condo. when complete will visit PP again. March 13, 2008 at 9:33 PMAnonymous Hi All, I am one of the owner of PP. It was good to see +ve and -ve comments on this condo. My only comment is, just buy what you think is good for you. My opinion is, not even one single project (condo) that could satisfied everyone. March 13, 2008 at 10:12 PMAnonymous Hi All, I'm also another buyer of PP. Surprise that suddenly PP blog become the hottest one. March 14, 2008 at 3:01 PMAnonymous Hi All, I just came back from the penang property fair and bad news for all buyers. There is no condo that sells less than RM300 per sqft in penang island anymore. Except vista gambier at RM260 per sqft onwards. but i personally would not recommend it due to the developer. All newly or soft launch properties price raises about 5-10% due to the increase of material cost (metal & cement). I think now PP price at RM260 - RM300 per sqft is very reasonable. Only a few new projects in the island, i guess those developers are still waiting for the new petrol price. You don't have to believe what I said, go have a look yourself. Good luck for buyers to negotiate pricing with owners. Owners if you hold your property until completion which is a few months later, the price will go up again cause the new petrol price hasn't been announce. March 14, 2008 at 3:21 PMAnonymous I just came back from the property fair, actually the developers concentrate more on landed rather than condo as they forsee that landed worth more value than condo/apart. Not a surprise if this property fair don't hav much condo/apart for sales. Few agents mentioned that Condo/apart will become over supply in 2 years time. So i guess by then the condo/apart value won't be that expensive. :) March 14, 2008 at 4:29 PMAnonymous I think for low cost most probably yes but not for the mid or high end. The reason is with landed property price rising so fast, two years from now there will be more and more ppl not able to afford landed in Penang island. Just an example Setia vista suppose to soft launch at 668k (less than a month ago) now changed to 700k. This will resort ppl to buy mainland or condo. and with the reduction of condo build this 2 yrs it will be the reverse instead. It will only be over supply if developer keep building or more ppl able to afford landed. with just your own statement mentioning that developer is now stopping, 2 yrs from now it will be much more expensive. Developers are not stupid enough to over supply. March 14, 2008 at 4:32 PMAnonymous if not over supply, how come number of sub-sales of property for condo/aprt. getting higher & higher? just an opinion. March 14, 2008 at 4:41 PMAnonymous That has nothing to do with over supply. It just shows that the penang property is used as investment. And demand is still high. It will only show over-supply when property posting for sub-sales not able to sold off. And keep collecting. Many parts of mainland having this issue. Today just take a close look, most houses in penang are occupied. If you notice BM, Juru and those places, always post for sale and empty. Then it is over supplied. So my recommendation is not to invest in mainland for now. Unless you take this as a long long investment plan. If you plan to stay there, it is fine. March 14, 2008 at 4:48 PMAnonymous Hi All, I just came back from the penang property fair and bad news for all buyers. There is no condo that sells less than RM300 per sqft in penang island anymore. Except vista gambier at RM260 per sqft onwards. but i personally would not recommend it due to the developer.

Only a few new projects in the island, i guess those developers are still waiting for the new petrol price. You don't have to believe what I said, go have a look yourself. May i know why u said the developer is no good? I plan to buy Vista Gambier. Please advice... March 14, 2008 at 4:58 PMAnonymous Just my personal opinion. The developer is a new developer and has no track record. The company is rather small and today the sales of the condo is not good. With just 60%+ sold after completing piling. They have slowed down the work progress. Well i am just afraid that if recession should hit penang, the question is will this be another abandon project. Higher risk and the quality/furnishing of the house is a question. Just curious, why you didn't consider PP since I see a few seller here? March 14, 2008 at 5:10 PMAnonymous Just to share my real personal experience, I nearly bought the condo in majestic height many years ago. Luckily i pulled back last minute. The project is abandon until today. I would not recommend anyone to buy hill side projects from small developer. In many cases the hill side development has a lot of hidden cost that is not properly estimated by non experience developer. This will result in abandon projects when the cost is too high. If you are not aware there are a lot of abandon hill side projects during the last recession. March 14, 2008 at 5:59 PMAnonymous Have you ever gone to Lereng Wira's office? I bet you will not buy the condo once you reach their office. I have been to their office mid of 2006 to check out Vista Gambier project. At that time, this project has not been launched yet, but i doubt the financial status of this developer and i pull off. So, take your risk to get a cheap condo. It's fair. March 14, 2008 at 6:17 PMAnonymous Huh??? Vista Gambier project really abondoned already? malang for those who buy it. March 14, 2008 at 6:21 PMAnonymous really or not....dont simply say... better go ask the developer during the property fair. March 14, 2008 at 6:23 PMAnonymous hehe..u r rite..i haf been to their office b4 they start the launching..n even my partner n me almost couldnt find the office..but when we reach the actual office..well, kinda..err..u noe that..but of coz we couldn't simply judge the book by it's cover,rite..the bad thing is that..hmm, we r kinda 'transparent' to them..lolx March 14, 2008 at 7:16 PMAnonymous no one says vista gambier abandon. the project as of today still running. just that ppl afriad it might get abandon due to the size of the company. the quality is another concern. March 14, 2008 at 8:54 PMAnonymous Hi All, You guys in luck. I visited the site. I think the previous person that blog here mentioning how bad the place look most probably from competitor or stupid. :P Now with videos n pic you can decide for youself. It is better than i expected. This is the 5th floor/recreation area for PP. The place is rather big since there is no unit there. Another words, all the units on the 5th floor will be used for recreation. Swimming pool is not big but should be more than enough for 100+ units.It has also a kid pool. Take note the video only took the center part. there is still plenty of space on both corners where type "A" & "D" sits. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-4XwAuih_s March 14, 2008 at 9:21 PMAnonymous Hahaha, PP is on youtube, good news or bad news? March 14, 2008 at 10:04 PMAnonymous Thanks for your effort to take the video. At least we have some ideas of how it looks like at PP 5th Floor. Good job! March 14, 2008 at 10:49 PMAnonymous Not bad. The place looks great. I think the swimming pool looks big. Alpine & a lot other condo swimming pool even smaller. I guess the previous guy never seen a low density penang condo. Don't compare with those 500 units condo. I like the empty space used for recreation. Very big ~10k sf qt since no units there. the view also not bad. very relaxing. thanks. great work! thinking of only selling my unit when complete then. Sure can get good price. I think by then can sell at least extra 10 per sqft. :P March 14, 2008 at 10:58 PMAnonymous Thanks friend and you really did a good job. I love both PP (Pulau Pinang and Palm Palladium) :-) March 15, 2008 at 12:27 AMAnonymous lnThings i would like to correct the previous -ve guy. 1) The carpark ceiling height is roughly 8+ft and its pillers roughly 1+ft lower (~7ft). This is typical height for multi storey carpark. Go check out malls and other condo, the usual height is set to 2 meters (6+ft). You will usually see the 2 meters warning at the entrance of multi level carpark. :D 2) The lift is not cheap and lousy. The lift is stainless steel just that the outer plastic layer not yet remove. That is usually the case to avoid scratches. Moreover the lift is still not working therefore not able to look inside. The project suppose to have scan access system for the lifts. And it is not like those low cost flats lifts :D 3) Regarding the view from the carpark to the bungalow and vice versa, it will be block with blinds, the one you see at the staircase windows when going up to the showroom type A. 4)The furnishing is per showroom. saw the laminated flooring, shower curtains and tiles. And the ceiling height is 10' 5) The loji kumbahan is small, less than half of PP swimming pool. :P Don't think it smells or anything cuz saw a lot of students just walk past it by the side. For those that do not believe the above, go visit the site yourself but be very careful cuz safety is a major concern there. This is how we provide info and facts to ppl, don't just be a drama queen and start telling ghost stories. I believe both owners and buyers will appreciate more my info than urs. I personally feel PP will be a nice place to stay. March 19, 2008 at 10:43 AMAnonymous Since early Jan, I have a buyer that agreed to buyer my condo. With just a verbal agreement, i hold our verbal contract until early this month when he throw me the flying knife when i insist for booking fee/SnP. He gave me his personal reason why he is not able to hold onto the contract but that is no longer important anymore. Along the way i rejected a few new buyers (higher buying price) cuz i feel that i should bind to our verbal contract. Naive. Learn a lesson from here. So now unless anyone paid me booking fee. My unit is still for sale :P March 24, 2008 at 6:25 PMAnonymous I dont think u can get any unit with 2 car park below 350k. You should prepare 380k at least, then you are safe March 24, 2008 at 6:50 PMAnonymous I'm also 1 of the owner of PP, anyone bought same level as me - level 24th? March 24, 2008 at 10:27 PMAnonymous which wing? Unit A or D side? March 25, 2008 at 10:07 AMAnonymous Wing B, my unit is type B :) March 25, 2008 at 2:50 PMAnonymous I own 3 unit in PP, 2 type B and 1 type D. Big$$$$return, ha ha ha March 25, 2008 at 4:58 PMAnonymous I'm also 1 of the owner of PP, anyone bought same level as me - level 24th? -> i own a unit on level 24 too. email me at mag3ster@gmail.com. March 25, 2008 at 10:01 PMAnonymous finally so many owner of PP :-) all of u will be staying there or rent out? March 26, 2008 at 8:23 AMAnonymous I will sell my unit. Bought it just for investment, not prefer to stay at that place, not really convinient. Anyway,$$ comes....

March 27, 2008 at 8:19 AMAnonymous

Dear All,
Be frank, this is quite common for new condo/apartment in Penang. We have a direct deal with the developer. Anyone who is interested please observe this blog. Detail information will be released once the OC is obtained.

Thanks.

March 27, 2008 at 10:43 AMAnonymous

COOL!!! now no need to hunt only from the previous owner who is selling his Level 7 type D unit.. thought only supplier will faces competition.. selling properties also so competitive.

now we hav more CHOISE!!! GOOD... CROSS my finger - hopefully is selling at a reasonable price.. :)

March 27, 2008 at 3:22 PMAnonymous

can you please roughly list down the prices and units? so that we can get ready. thanks.

March 27, 2008 at 3:36 PMAnonymous

Dear All,
Sorry that I am not allowed to reveal the detail at this moment as this will impact the condo price. Please be patient.
Please note that the price range (RM350k - RM420k) is subject to change depends on market trend and demand. However, we will subsale for reasonable price.

Thanks

March 27, 2008 at 5:10 PMAnonymous

6th floor or 7th floor owner will have free car alarm music for them every day. Hahahaha, but people still like it and selling at good price.

Higher floor will have a peace of mind.

Lower floor: More people like it.

Higher floor: nobody likes because they are afraid of earthquake and not able to get to the bottom fast enough. Also, afraid of lift malfunction. Mmm....stupid thinking. Buying a flat may have this concern, but you are buying a condo.
I have been staying in apartments for almost two years, but i never have to walk to the bottom using staircase due to lifts malfunction.

Anyone agrees with me?

March 27, 2008 at 8:06 PMAnonymous

ok, anyone know when can OC obtained? can't awaiting that day come :-)

March 28, 2008 at 10:08 AMdacmo

I have 1 unit Type C on the 21st floor with option to buy additional car park as well. BTW developer said that apartment will be ready in May and OC expected mid year.

March 28, 2008 at 3:14 PMdacmo

Yes I'm looking to sell my Type C unit. I'm not sure what the going price is but I'd like to get around RM280k if possible. Anyone interested?

March 29, 2008 at 6:11 PMAnonymous

March 30, 2008 at 2:12 PMAnonymous

any owner here?
the developer request us to sign in one telekom package without telling much information.

Anyone know what is that?

March 30, 2008 at 11:22 PMAnonymous

to enjoy more cheaper Telekom line rental charges.

March 31, 2008 at 12:18 AMdacmo

To those who have responded to my post above, thanks for your interest. However, after consulting with my property agent, I might need to adjust the selling price slightly. Please let me know if there's still interest and I'll leave my contact here.

March 31, 2008 at 9:32 AMAnonymous

Yes, i'm still interested but can you let's me how much you're going to adjust up for sub-sale ? Thanks

March 31, 2008 at 11:04 AMAnonymous

Hi [to enjoy more cheaper Telekom line rental charges].

I do not need telekom line because i do not online. Should i cancel it? I just need Intercom. but as far as i know, intercom is stand alone.
I used to go to other condo, they do not need telekom line for their intercom.
Is that mean we have to pay extra rental fee every month for the intercom to work?
It seems not worth it because we seldom use intercom.

March 31, 2008 at 7:10 PMAnonymous

I really not very clear about intercomm (need Telekom line). Maybe you can direct contact developer.

April 2, 2008 at 2:42 PMAnonymous

Where is the list of price? I tot u want to post here...

April 5, 2008 at 2:53 PMAnonymous

The reason for asking is that most likely PP owner can enjoy the e-gate liked convenient when i-Regency project is completed? I knew that i-Regency will have shop lots and stuff. Starbucks? Coffebean?

If the above is true, Palladium is in my considering list.... anyone have any idea?

April 5, 2008 at 2:55 PMAnonymous

April 5, 2008 at 11:36 PMdacmo

Sorry for all who have been waiting for my price on the Type C on the 21st floor. I've been advised to set the price at RM310k (negotiable). Anyone interested? I also have the additional parking lot to sell together at 10k.

April 6, 2008 at 10:06 AMAnonymous

April 6, 2008 at 11:41 AMdacmo

I am still contemplating on whether to install Penangfon or Streamyx. Problem right now is if I already have Stramyx currently, can I trasfer only the Streamyx line cos the phoneline need to install new one as mentioned by the developer.

April 15, 2008 at 1:53 PMAnonymous

If you currently have a streamyx account at your current place on phone number xx-xxxxxxx, then when you install a new phone line in PP, you just call TMnet to xfer your streamyx account to the new phone line at PP.

Is it penangfon only allow us to online and no phoneline? what is the charges? (*sorry for asking these because i did not search much info on Penangfon).

Anyone visited the actual show room on 5th floor? How's the workmanship looks like? is it good and fine quality? or Cin cai Cin Cai only?

There is a one time installation chage and activation fee of RM 120 (RM 80 + RM 40). They will also collect 3 months deposit (RM180). This deposit is refundable upon termination of the service, subject to completion of the minimum contract period (currently is 1 year).

I went to the PP construction site on Sunday, it seems like there's still a long way before the construction ends. can they make it in time for the OC is July? Seems a bit impossible.

April 24, 2008 at 2:05 PMAnonymous

To the person mentioned about Economictimes, may i know what is the url for that? Am interested in these online economic news, thanks

April 24, 2008 at 4:08 PMAnonymous

Penang property pice sholud be safe, due to limited land. Maybe the price will not increase like crazy anymore. Prai side may suffer a bit.... luckily I just sold of my house there.

April 24, 2008 at 4:10 PMAnonymous

The land behind IR should be BSG one. They will built semi-D. But the land still under court case, and may take years....

April 25, 2008 at 12:13 PMAnonymous

hopefully they can settle it ASAP so we can link to bukit gambir main road.

April 25, 2008 at 3:18 PMAnonymous

If BSG built semi-D there, I think they will not open the road to invite traffic.

April 26, 2008 at 8:05 PMAnonymous

unless they successfully applied for guarded or gated comunity else it is not up to BSG to decide. Up to today, don't think there is a BSG project that is guarded or gated. Another words i am sure the access will be open

April 28, 2008 at 4:31 PMAnonymous

BSG can open up an exit through the new road beside IR. But BSG no need to make any road connected to PP. This do not make any good for their project.
Anyway, that land will not be developed withing 5 years time.

April 28, 2008 at 7:06 PMAnonymous

any owners stay at 27 floor? I'm one of the owner :-)

April 29, 2008 at 9:25 PMAnonymous

i guess you are not very smart on this thing. when u submit a project for approval the gov will look at the road proposal. you cannot choose to just close one site of the road especially there is already a road connected to it initially. Today u can see that it is already connected to PP.

April 30, 2008 at 5:28 PMAnonymous

Hi, you worked as developer before? You sure what you said? Maybe you are right and I hope you are right! But I am not too sure about this. If you worked as developer before than I will have more confidance. Sometime, right thing not necessary happen..... because there are so many thing not right around us, and it still happen...

May 2, 2008 at 4:55 PMAnonymous

anyone know Type E unit located at which floor and total how many units? please advise. thanks.

May 6, 2008 at 3:48 PMAnonymous

seems like the construction on the apartment will only be completed by July and OC to be obtained in Sept this year.

May 6, 2008 at 5:17 PMAnonymous

The condo seems completed soon. Why take until sept for OC?
Also, currently notice that the light on top of the condo was switched off.

Referring to 14-march reply from a anonymous about carpark height, lift condition, view from car park and furnishing,it is really a good job done. I believe he/she must be from the developer. Whether yes or no, hope that the facts are real. Just wondering if there is anybody who can take new movie on the 5th floor and any unit just to see the latest progress? Thanks in advance.

During waiting period,my wife and I compared with other projects and PP has the best internal design by far comparing to the similar range in size and value (Eg: oasis, i-regency, vista gambier, the spring)

Talking about i-regency, heard from a friend of mine (a buyer) that the temple will be moved to connect the road to Yap chor ee. This is another good news for us if it is true. If there is any Harta Intan staff viewing this blog,please confirm for the sake of the owners here.Thanks.

May 7, 2008 at 5:25 PMOwner

Today I went to see this condo, surprised the completion status is much behind than The Spring project. I do not think it can obtained O.C at July/Aug. So sad, the swimming is pool is really small. Imagine the size is slightly half size of a normal car park area, and it's not long enough! Overall the layout is ok but the quality of the unit's doors are using very cheap materials, it can easily break by hand (i feel it). The developer should consider change a much better material, at least like The Spring one.

May 7, 2008 at 5:27 PMAnonymous

Can someone tell me what is the incremented price per floor. Thanks.

May 7, 2008 at 5:48 PMAnonymous

For interial, type A and B is good. The rest, you need to stress your brain a bit for the renovation, or hired an interial designer to do the job. Also, different people having different prefer on the interial design, due to past experience.
The interial material, normally the developer will expect you to install a better quality door and other material. I heard from a friend who bought THe Spring, saying the door quality also the normal one.
So far, I only know that I-Rengency is using decorative door, but the quality don't know.
So, doesn't matter la.... you can get a good door at \$400.
Anyone need an interial designer? I have a friend in this field and might able to offer a good deal.

May 7, 2008 at 8:11 PMAnonymous

3K per floor. Yes, I need interior designer for my unit.

May 8, 2008 at 12:52 AMAnonymous

Ya, I agreed with anonymous about the progress of PP. Anyway it should not be of our worries, we can claim late delivery repayment on it if submission is over 3yrs.

I could still remember the quality of the main door and those in the house when I visited the showunit. HIntan Sales personell confirmed that actual units will be as per the showunit. They are many of us (owners) and if things are not right there is always another option in legal action. Hope HIntan team can double confirm here

May 8, 2008 at 1:36 PMAnonymous

Why not someone forward this blog's link to the harta intan sales person so that they might come in to see it and response?

May 8, 2008 at 2:43 PMAnonymous

i did observe that the progress of PP is rather slow compared to the spring considering that the construction on the spring actually started later that PP. i think perhaps the OC can be delayed to later that Sept. the developed tend to take their own sweet time since the 3 years contract will only expire earliest by Jan 2009.

May 8, 2008 at 5:24 PMAnonymous

On the bright side, they will complete the project without any rush, povide better quality.
However, I think they are working on the facilities and interial stuffs. Normally, they will push for faster progress because they can collect more cahs after each stage completed. Just be patient. See from external, it is completed...

May 8, 2008 at 11:58 PMAnonymous

I wonder why it is slow in response from H.Intan personell to reply some of our general doubts above which they used to be normally quite fast in giving defensive comment when destructive questions appeared?

We can be sured that there is basically a 'defender' in every property blog that is open for blogging. So, there is no need to tell the developer this link. They knew it!

May 19, 2008 at 1:11 AMAnonymous

Is PP freehold or leased? thx

May 19, 2008 at 11:34 AMAnonymous

May 20, 2008 at 11:53 AMAnonymous
