Hi there,

If none mistaken, you have to registered with MPPP to be eligible to buy one. My relative tried, but rejected as quota full.

leany,

When will this project OC?
Seem like the carpark is the most concern point for the area.
For the 700sf, anyone can apply?

 
October 15, 2010 at 11:52 AMLingeswari V.Chandra

Just curious is there a cemetery near by??

 
October 17, 2010 at 12:15 PMJoseph

the entire cemetery is actually underneath the building. That piece of land initially was cemetery before this flat is built. If you search back some history in newspaper years ago, there were some quarrel btw developer and family where their ancestors were buried here as they refused the developer to do so. End up, $$ always win. that is why some people rejected the offer due to what is hidden underneath their house, facing big T-junction at Asia Hill, a mosque near by and also the congested lip sin road as the only entrance to this building....
However, this is still a good buy as the cost is low if u think the above mentioned is not affecting ur life in any way..cheers....

 
October 17, 2010 at 3:08 PMNicole

Joseph, if the story you mentioned above is true, pls prove it with links or documents!!!otherwise, pls do not simply create a story in this blog.

 
October 20, 2010 at 10:09 PMLingeswari V.Chandra

Joseph the cemetery is beside the carpark not below the flats. It is not facing the T-Junction as the entrance is actually the other side. Which part of penang is not congested ??????

 
October 21, 2010 at 12:43 PM§tēvē Kēń§ĥĩʼn

Near Bkt Jambul Complex & USM . My bet this property will sell like hotcakes . No matter if there's cemetery under it or bside it . Guys , its the 21st century :)

 
October 22, 2010 at 11:20 AMeyegeolenses

hi everyone, the unit is not belong to freehold. and its leasehold 99 years.

 
October 24, 2010 at 10:13 PMsylvialimchuiwha

ya, i called the PDC office and confirmed it is leasehold ( unless the office girl cannot differentiate lease / free hold....)....if not, i buy d....

 
November 4, 2010 at 8:38 PMjaycsng

just wonder there will be how many entry there???

To Captain:
The building is already ready, OC they yet announce on it. We do call and check with them, they mention about Dec 2010 - Jan 2011, working in progress.

One unit is entitle to buy one car park with RM15k. Those who do not want their car park, it will open for the rest who interested to have it, same price RM15k by draw lot as many of them want to have 2nd car park also. As of now, we have submit the name to draw for 2nd car park, they yet get back to us for any update.

Those with income x <=2500 they will be offer low cost unit as could. Those with income x>=2500 will definitely been offer for 700sf.

Oh ya, one more thing it is a lease hold even though in their official website it does listed freehold instead.

Hope this does help, CHEERS >_^

 
November 10, 2010 at 5:10 PMBee lean Lok

After reading thru the blog, I do wish to share my though for the item listed below, let’s take a look >_^

Leasehold vs. Freehold
How long will us live? How long will Earth exist still? Let’s happy and own our 1st ever home sweet home first.
There are few cases Leasehold converted to Freehold, just patient enough waiting will do, cheers.
Purpose is for investing? After 10 years, the unit price almost same for Leasehold and Freehold.
Thinking of giving your Freehold unit to your next generation, after 99 years a building is still there, how safe it is?

Congested Traffic, High Density:
Like what Chandra said, which part of the Penang island is not congested? Now a day Penang mainland is getting congested for the same.
If you manage to pay RM300k and above (apartment and above), RM500k and above (landed), then you have the choice to choose x < High Density area.

Cemetery:
Does anyone know in this earth, any pieces of land do not have dead body before?
In term of fengshui, those place chosen to become a Cemetery before are strategic places and good in fengshui, HUAT AH!

Facilities:
The more facilities you have, the higher the maintenance fee you need to pay no matter you are using it or not.
If you do have facilities such as Children Playground, Community Hall, Car Park, CCTV Security is sufficient enough and good enough.
Swimming Pool: Usually it come with 4 feet deep only, if you really like to swimming, it won’t fulfill your desire.
Tennis Court: Only those high class condo will have. How many people know how to play tennis?
Gym Room: After x> 5 years, the equipment are getting almost broken and you won’t interested to visit due to it condition.
Only those who are discipline enough will only visit their housing area facilities Gym room frequently, lol.

In Summary, let own our 1st home sweet home first with our capability.

 
November 28, 2010 at 2:41 PMsanjay

Probably, this property will be an ideal place to stay and will be a good deal for investment purpose. As USM is around the corner, it is a good prospect for future.

 
December 3, 2010 at 1:45 PMCaptain

Bee lean Lok,

Thanks for the reply and the answer.
still got unit to apply? I love the conveninece palce. 75k +15k = 90k. this is very very cheap nowaday.
90k installment for 30yr = ~RM450/mth, I think most of the Penang ppl can affort this price.

 
December 19, 2010 at 7:26 PMtRacY

i heard from the guard saying that units above 7th floor(low-medium cost units) come with mosaic floor.

 
December 29, 2010 at 4:09 PMDaaditsu

Yes, correct. The upper floors come with tiles flooring.

Was told OC will only b obtained in around July-August 2011 .

 
January 5, 2011 at 11:02 AMCaptain

Steve,

The building seem like completed.
Why take so long for VP and OC? Any reason?

 
January 8, 2011 at 9:07 PMdion

dear captain for my experience with my frend OC procedure not only like say apply oc and get oc.developer have a get support letter from 14 or 15 department after inspection from authority,likes pba,tnb,iwk,jkr, many department from mppp,bomba and many more.after get a support letter,developer can apply oc from coucil.it is takes time.

 
January 21, 2011 at 5:41 PMpheiling

just own one unit.. the corner unit in block A. The OC will obtain in July to August tentatively.

 
February 7, 2011 at 11:02 AMUyen

tq dion coz ur understanding in the process of oc obtaining......all these halaman kenanga sales has to undergo application via bahagian perumahan......

 
February 9, 2011 at 4:46 PMpei ling

if i apply from goverment,when that i know i get it this house or not???

 
February 9, 2011 at 4:49 PMpei ling

If i apply from MPPP, when i can know whether in get this house or not???

 
February 23, 2011 at 8:38 PMleany

to pei ling:
developer will send you a letter when you successfully get a lot from government.

if you reject more than 3 times (different lot) they offered you, end of story, you won't get it anymore.

the shorter time i seen successfully get the offer = 2 years. >_^

the longest time i heard so far only get their first lot offer = 20 years. !_!

if you submit the form and applying it now, i don't think you will get halaman kenanga already. however you got a chance to get other lot in different location.

the earliest time you submit and apply, the faster you can own your own home soon, good luck.

 
February 23, 2011 at 8:43 PMleany

to Captain:
i guess no more unit available, as all this lot need applying from government instead.

go and submit the form and applying now. soon they will offer you a lot and you can own your home soon, good luck.

 
February 23, 2011 at 8:47 PMleany

my fren got a lot there, plan to rent it out once OC obtain.

interested to rent it, let me know la.

 
February 23, 2011 at 8:56 PMleany

just want to share with all, now a day to get a lot in penang island, really expensive already, min rm300k+ to get a 900-1200 sf lot...

don shy, feel sad to submit and apply from government. although it is just low (rm45k+), low-medium (rm75k+) cost lot, 650-700 sf, it is affordable and we don have to much worry on developer run away cos government will chase after them.

mean time, usually government offered lot kind of strategy location! high density? more crowded more cheer! quick quick go submit and apply because it does take time in order to process before we get our first offer letter >_^

According to the developer , OC will probably b ready by mid of this year . Latest by July 2011 . Cheers .

July 31, 2011 at 8:55 PMVd

I guess ,maybe they are having some financial problem.They told OC will be obtained by mid year..but now they are dragging to year end or beginning of next year.When asked what makes the delay...they're answer is 'WORK IS IN PROGRESS'inside the building.

 
August 3, 2011 at 11:12 PMAnonymous

donno till next year they can complete and give the key to all owner boh..? not so positive...

 
August 3, 2011 at 11:33 PMAnonymous

Delay is the trademark of PDC Properties. Nothing to surprise when you know them too well. The way they work like old-time government, incompetent and slow.

Despite changing in Govt but attitude remain the same since established.

 
August 17, 2011 at 7:17 PMPeter

pdc officer say only early next year can get oc . why the delay .. anyone knows?

 
December 11, 2011 at 12:51 PMqueen

December 13, 2011 at 2:56 PMdaniel(6 Aman)

where is the children playground,inside the building?????
did't see when i was there
what is the different between low cost and the other cost??????
what kind of religion of the cemetery

 
January 5, 2012 at 12:27 PMJerry

Hi to All,

Recently I went to the site to check it out why the OC and etc had been delayed.
I am surprise to see that the ground floor carpark roof has been taken and dismantle out? Is anyone know why???
This create suspicious that PDC is having lack of fund or in other words having financial difficult for payment to contractor.
My view after that visit, when can obtain OC is that it going to be end of first half or another inaccurate promises by PDC staff saying maybe in August 2012.
One more I would like to share with all is with regards to the floor tiles as promise, I got the info from one of TNB staff happen to met him during my visit, what he told me is that there are no floor tiles for 8fl and above as promised. Same like below low cost. Anyway, how true the info is I personnaly don't know.
Thanks and Cheers to All!

 
January 14, 2012 at 7:54 PMleany

Visit PDC office on friday 01/13/2012 and they informed that OC is going to be obtained at end of March 2012. We plan to rent out the unit there once it is ready. stay tuned for those intersted to rent and stay over there.

 
January 14, 2012 at 8:00 PMleany

to queen:
if they are sending you approval letter saying that you can apply those low/low medium house, nothing much you need to do, they just informed you only and now you are on their list.

when they sned you the letter which contains the project they offer you, then you have to go to that place according what stated on letters and prepare the documents needed to apply the house.

hope this does help.

can i know when rm42,000 (lower cost) can get oc???

 
March 18, 2012 at 4:24 PMleany

to Pei Ling
the OC already obtained for whole building, low or low medium cost.
so now it depends on you/your bank had release all the payments needed by PDC, then you can get the key.
