When this condo launched?

December 17, 2009 at 3:42 PMMoh

Anyone know the background of this developer?
Why kena kompaun as mentioned in the link below?

December 17, 2009 at 4:22 PMLim

How much per sq?

December 17, 2009 at 4:30 PMYeh Moin

Design not so good. Beside also with 56 units low cost flat attach. The build up quite big but inside very empty. Kitchen will be very dark for most of the unit. It is just like a flat design. But the price is quite reasonable. Can consider if you don't mind a low cost flat attach to this condo.

December 17, 2009 at 4:41 PMMs

it's normal for these property companies kena saman la. If you notice the whole list even big companies like Mont Kiara of Sunrise Bhd, Kumpulan Sierramas of IGB Bhd are in the list...

December 18, 2009 at 8:54 AMLeprechaungal

how much is a unit?

December 18, 2009 at 12:19 PMcheam

Can anyone tell me, where is developer address & contact no? tqs

December 18, 2009 at 6:03 PMAlex

office at Perak Rd, near City stadium

December 18, 2009 at 6:06 PMAlex

I think it's a good buy for a 2,000 ft2 condo for less than 500K. The location is situated at the begining of Sungai Ara which is very near to Bukit Jambul area.

December 18, 2009 at 11:46 PMdodobird

According to the sales person, many units had sold to foreigners and the factory executives. Any idea how true is that?

How do u think about the attach flat beside the condo? According to the sales person, both buildings are not link.

How about the access road for this project?

Pls comment on the developer too. Thanks!

December 19, 2009 at 1:27 AMbryan

Hi dodobird,
i went to their office couple time during soft launch. seeing the response are not so good, so decided to drop it.
most of the buyer are from FIZ, engineers level. they all simply buy for investment . i know there are 5 agilent engineers each bought 1 units for investments when i was there. Dun see any foreigner also since the 1st day soft launch.

December 19, 2009 at 4:29 AMLeprechaungal

any interior design info on this condo?how many room?how much is psf??
also any info on etc condo/luxury condo/terrace/semi d which is on soft launch at the moment?

December 19, 2009 at 4:15 PMLok

Some info for sharing. Type A is 2390sq ft 4+1 rooms, type B & C with build up area of 1990sq ft and 2071 sq ft respectively are 3+1 rooms, selling price is start from 458k. There are 7 units per floor beginning from level 5 (3 levels of car park and 4th floor is facilities area). Semi D are fully sold out only 1 bungalow left.

December 21, 2009 at 12:26 AMping

I was there today, I think less than 15 units left, I have just put a 5K deposit, still have 3 business days to decide. 470K for type C, 2071 sq ft. = RM 226/sq ft. The low cost flat is attached to the condo structurely but do not share the same entrance nor can they come over. None of the units will be able to see low cost units. The design of the low cost is to complement the condo. I am going on site and probably go to the highest nearby apartment to have a look of the surrounding. Stay tune

December 21, 2009 at 2:10 AMLeprechaungal

guys ,can u kindly get me the info of the sales off pls..
thx in ad

December 21, 2009 at 7:54 AMping

sales office is in Jalan Perak, Wisma Sri Perak, It is on the road opposite of the Dato Keramat Police Station and the Creative Furniture shop

December 21, 2009 at 9:17 AMVoice

Hi Ping,

The structure is attached to the condo but different enterance?? Sounded like the BJ Court and Taman BJ (low cost).

Back then, the developer (Penas) optimize the land, and make the low cost car & motorcycle parking below the BJ Court, and now problem with the Strata Title.

Even the linkway from BJ Court to the Carpark (you can see it when you drive behind BJ Complex) is also causing issue for the Strata Title, because the road (underneath the linkway) is not belonging to BJ Court).

Low cost and Condo should be clearly separated with MINIMAL SHARING because these are 2 different projects, with 2 different strata titles. From experience, all these sharing and link ways create lots of issue and ambiguity at the later stage.

People... just be careful.

December 21, 2009 at 9:39 AMGI Joe

Voice, good to hear this, no wonder selling so cheap while the price in S.Ara is coming to Rm350/sqf, mean those whoever purchased earlier of this project will have their money stucked in future for not able to find sub-sale.

December 21, 2009 at 1:54 PMping

Hello Voice,

Never looked at it like that before, but this is very good info.

I know of someone living next to Cherry Blossom, she said that most if not all of the land there was sold a few years ago even the vegetable patches, development only started very recently, maybe due to the economy. If this is true, is this an indication that the area will be coming up soon?

December 21, 2009 at 2:42 PMVoice

Hi GI Joe and Ping,

Glad that you take my input positively. All these are painful experiences. Strata Title by itself is already a shared facilities/title, and if you're more strata title projects sharing/overlapping each other, you can imagine its complications.

Addressing to ping's questions...
The fact in Penang is that there is not much land available, except for development in the Southern part of the Island.

Bayan Baru used to be named as "sua teng" (kampung) back in 25 years ago, and nobody ever mentioned about Sg Ara, but now it's totally different.

Good thing about Bayan Baru and Sg Ara is that thre is not much low cost flats nor highrise, but Relau area is a little different.

Having said that, Batu Maung, Relau, and even Teluk Kumbar are definitely coming up, let alone Balik Pulau.

December 21, 2009 at 7:04 PMping

Hello Voice,

Come to think of it, I thought strata titles are applicable only to lease hold apartments?

December 21, 2009 at 7:42 PMVoice

Hi Ping,

Strata vs. Individual title AND Leasehold vs Freehold titles are 2 different things.

* Strata Title is for property with common facilities which are NOT managed by local council (eg. Swimming Pool). This is mostly for highrise apartments/condos, but now we also have Landed Strata (such as SouthBay and One Residence).
* Individual title is for property without common facilities. This is typically landed properties without pool, security, etc...

o Freehold means you own the land forever;
o Leasehold means you lease the land for your property (can be landed or highrise).

In other words, you can have...
a) Strata Leasehold (Highrise or Landed);
b) Strata Freehold (Highrise or Landed);
c) Individual Leasehold (typically Landed only);
d) Individual Freehold (typically Landed only).

December 21, 2009 at 9:09 PMping

Voice, Thanks for the clarification

December 23, 2009 at 9:52 AMLok

Hi Ping,

So after surveyed, what is your decision? to sign or to decline?

December 23, 2009 at 10:15 AMping

Hello Guys,

Last day to decide today, have already made up my mind to cancel the purchase. I still think it is a great purchase if you intent to stay, but I am getting it as an investment. So, I'll have to pass on this one. Hey Voice, appreciate your advise, you don't find a lot of constructive opinion nowadays, and I can definitely appreciate one.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

December 23, 2009 at 12:48 PMVoice

Hi Ping,

I'm sorry if my comment has influenced your decision, but I'm coming purely from experience & facts point, and I'm glad to know that it is taken constructively.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all.

December 23, 2009 at 2:35 PMping

Hello Voice,

Don't be sorry, we should be mature enough to listen, digest and make a decision, and be responsible for it. If you feel bad, you can always make up for it by alerting me on other possible good investments by emailing me at : )

Anyway my brother in-law is in this industry, I think he is a project manager for one of the developer. He too advise me against getting one.

December 23, 2009 at 3:38 PMLok

hi Ping,

May I know what is the reason he against you getting one? I'm actually have placed a booking but still considering to go ahead with the purchase or to let go as I'm quite uncomfortable with their process where only giving 3 working days to sign for the SPA after booked.

December 23, 2009 at 4:08 PMVenus

I booked one too and already sign S&P. In my opinion, that area is coming up, though now still ulu a bit. but i know they are going to widen the rold and SP SETIA has brough land besides this project. All condo are strata title wat unless you brought landed property. for me, that's not a big deal.

December 23, 2009 at 4:15 PMLok

Hi Venus,

Looks like you do more homeworks than me huh... Btw, may I know which floor and what type u bought? facing North East or South West??

December 23, 2009 at 4:19 PMping

Hello Lok,

The unit I intent to get cost 470K, for 2071 sq ft, I am getting it as an investment. In a few years time I think I have to sell it at around 550K min to get a decent profit. The way we look at it. I think most would opt for a landed terrace at that price somewhere in Sungai Ara, instead of a condo. I think 2 units of 226K condo (1000 sq ft) would be a better investment.
Also keeping it longer will be worst as once the low cost building starts to degrade it will be an eyesore for future buyers. Just my 2 cents. Actually I am the last person that you should listen to, this is my first time looking for a place to invest : )

December 23, 2009 at 4:27 PMVenus

Hi ping, your idea may be wise, but can you find condo 1000 sqft below 250K? i know that regency height 1200sqft has sold more than 360K. If the low cost would be eyesore for future buyer, why SP setia still brought the land, i know they plan to build semi-D. then they must have problem to sell it later?

December 23, 2009 at 4:30 PMping

Hello Lok,

Are you getting it as in investment or a place to stay, if you intent to stay, look at the positive side, I just love the facilities, the semi indoor pool, the space, and most of all the LANAI, just love it. Initially I was thinking that if it turned out to be a poor investment I can always sell my terrace and move in, but not without my dog. : )

December 23, 2009 at 4:44 PMLok

Hi Ping,

I'm actually have same opinion with you. But I also consider it for own stay and maybe will sell it off if there is a demand with handsome profit after obtaining the O.C.
Regarding the low cost flat, I believe any condo project also will have a low cost flat as it is mandatory requirement by government. As far as I know, there also will be a low cost flat near to the reflection by SP Setia, but seems no one care about it at all.
Just that for ZP, the low cost structure is attached to the condo will be a major concern.

December 23, 2009 at 4:48 PMVenus

it concern me too initially, but 52 unit only that attached low cost. somemore entrance different. i think ok kua

December 23, 2009 at 4:53 PMping

Hello Venus,

I was using the 226K figure as a reference (470K/2071). Anyway 1000 sqft below 250K is not impossible, Iris is selling at RM230/sqft (although only 85o sqft) sold out of course, Pavillon is selling at RM226/sqft. For investment I just feel like there are more buyers looking for units in the 1000 sqft range. Regarding the low cost, I just feel that it is too close to the condo unlike other developement. There is always pro's and con's in every project, my advise is if you like the pro's more than the con's it is already good enough to get one.

Sorry if it feels like I am pouring cold water. I have no intention of doing that.

December 23, 2009 at 5:04 PMVenus

thanks for your opinion, anyway i have signed the S&P. How is the repsonse so far? anyone know how many unit left now? i haven't been to the sales office after sign

December 23, 2009 at 5:26 PMVenus

For me, as long as the price is below market price (others sell more than 340sqft). and that area is upcoming area. that should be potential to sell at higher price when completion. hope the investment will goes well la.

December 23, 2009 at 5:36 PMping

Hello Venus,

That's the spirit, I agree totally on the " upcoming area" part. As well as the cheap price/sqft. Another thing, someone asked regarding the developer, personally I have never heard of the name before but rest assured that they are very strong. And this piece of information is coming from a competitor.

December 23, 2009 at 6:40 PMVenus

hi ping,

i have personnaly brought two projects from this developer before. no complaints and earn quite handsome profit from those two projects. i can assure you they are strong. no worry.
regards to your previous comment, i think coming, no developers will launch projects less than 1000sqft unless you buy second hand apartment. those new launch >1000sqft projects should be more than 350k. so i think this project worth it to invest. fyi, this is only my opinion.

December 23, 2009 at 6:49 PMs_Boy

aiya dont think so much la.

buy as long as you can still afford.

if you dont buy other ppl WILL buy

its the matter of can afford or not only.

my 2cents opinion only.

December 23, 2009 at 8:01 PMbryan

Personally thinkg the prices and location are good and attractive. but come to think about it, who will be your buyer, who will buy a 2k sqft units with normal facility? to me, if someone can afford 2k sqft condo, his requirement must be luxury or the condo must come with some special feature to attract like:-
sea view, penang bridge view ,nice garden attractive swimming pool or water fountain(putra marine, baywater, urban residences, baystar, the view).

if we are talking about 1k sqft to 1.5k sqft, that is different market..

December 23, 2009 at 8:04 PMbryan

btw, who said spsetia is buying the land next to it? i got to know from sp setia sale ppl, those land are too expensive and now they rather move the focus to area near setia pearl island..

December 23, 2009 at 10:20 PMJune

Hi Venus,

So glad to hear that you are their supporter. May I know how is their quality of work and the progress based on past 2 projects that you have bought?

December 23, 2009 at 10:25 PMJune


may I know which 2 projects that you been bought?

December 24, 2009 at 10:43 PMdodobird

I just booked type 2071sf level 7 few days back. Here are some info to share with you all.

1) The main road is 100ft. Very broad.
2) The gap between the low cost and the condo is 8ft, it is NOT linked with two different entrance. Low cost only 54units.
3) Low cost facing the Sri Abadi apartment. Z.P's view will not block by the low cost nor Sri Abadi.
4) Price RM 230/sf is very cheap. Regency Height ~RM350sf but high den, 529units. Z.P only 132 units, less complication.
5) Maintenance fees only RM 198/month for all type.

December 24, 2009 at 10:58 PMdodobird


As for me, the property is for investment. Here are my opinions about the potential buyers and location.

1) Location quite good, easy access to FIZ, Giant Hypermarket, Hotel Sri Malaysia, Sunshine, Pantai Hospital, banks and schools.

2) Potential future development which will stimulate the selling price in the future. Pls view the link below.

3) Many 2nd apartment&condo that below 1300sf in market. But, condo above 1300sf at affordable price (not luxury condo) is not much in market, especially in Sg. Ara.

4) New generation now with income (per family) above RM 10k will prefer a home more than 1500sf for long term stay.

This is only my opinion. As me and my husband staying at 1200sf house, we still feel it is a bit too small if with children.

December 24, 2009 at 11:02 PMdodobird


The floor above and below the water tank is not fully booked. 5th and 6th floor (right above the facilities floor) is not fully booked. Other level 95% booked.

Type 2400sf still left 20%.

December 24, 2009 at 11:08 PMdodobird

Car park.

1) Type 1990sf, 2 front and back car parks.
2) Type 2071sf and 2400sf with 2 side by side cp.

December 25, 2009 at 11:37 AMAllen

hi June,

i've get their home page from skyscrappercity

December 25, 2009 at 4:58 PMdavid

Hi all,
you cannot compare with RegencyHeight or even reflection condo.

Regency Height / Reflection Condo
1) the surrounding is good
2) surrounded by luxury & landed property,
3) no highrise building nearby(and also low cost flat is far away),
4) good view

zan pavillion
1)surrounded by 3 high rise that built by koperasi tunas ( sri abadi, cempaka, a low cost flat opposite cempaka)
2) no gurantee what will be built beside the land in future (high rise or landed)
3) attaached to low cost flat

if really want to compare and target the same group of buyer market,

let take example,
regency height RM350/sqft. x 1250 = ~440k
zan pavillion RM280/sqft. x 1250 = ~350k
(since the enviroment/surorunding lose to regency height, so, i assume the price /sqft will lower as well let said using leasehold condo market price RM280/sqft).
that mean, if there is a condo with 1250sqft built at current zan pavillion location, the same group of buyer/market will willing to pay only RM350k for that. right now, you are offering RM460k at that location, that also mean it target different market/group of buyers.

in fact, i bought 1, let pray for positive side....

December 25, 2009 at 5:19 PMJune

Thanks Allen.

Looks like many buyers are for investment. How about for own stay? Anybody?? I just worry that if everyone is for investment, then the sub-sale will be very competitive during completion and this will delay the % of occupancy.

December 25, 2009 at 10:09 PMAllen

shouldnt be a problem though... look at their previous project. Kang Har Tong. (competitive sub-sales.. Ur property price will Boom! Boom! Boom! well... that's my philosophy though. ^^

December 26, 2009 at 10:37 PMkelly

I booked a unit at 12th floor(below the water tank). Now worry about the water tank noise. Should I cancel my booking?

December 27, 2009 at 3:53 PMpenang

not worth to buy/invest for those unit below the water tank.

December 27, 2009 at 4:16 PMJune

Hi Kelly,

When you booked this unit? Is it because not many choices left? Maybe you should consider to change to other unit as maybe they will give a discount for those unsold units (especially above and below water tank) after certain period.

December 28, 2009 at 10:22 AMkelly

Not sure can change unit or not. Called to office but mentioned manager on company holiday. Anyone has materials background? Is the material specs looks good? Please advise.

December 28, 2009 at 2:32 PMVivien

Seem like the developer didn't offer any bumi-lot. Why it is so? Any advice?

December 28, 2009 at 2:53 PMLok

I'm curious too, anybody find out from them?

December 29, 2009 at 9:06 AMM

How about the developers? Does anyone know any previous projects by the developers?

December 29, 2009 at 9:27 AMMichael

At what floor is the water tank?

December 29, 2009 at 11:25 AMLok

Water tank at 13th floor. Can find out past, current and future projects from their website:

December 29, 2009 at 5:05 PMFoong

I just back from the sales office today.

These are the unit available,
B13-2-3,4 (maintenance office and water tank are in this floor)

Others i didn't document and seriously speaking, i don't think all others floor is booked. I think the developer just reserve it for future launching.

December 30, 2009 at 9:04 AMMichael

If we buy a unit either in the 14th floor or in the 7th floor then, will it become very hard to sell? Will it become not a good investment to go for these floors?

December 30, 2009 at 5:03 PMkelly

I heard the area is flood prone area. Flood the whole road once a year. How is the developer going to tackle the issue?

December 31, 2009 at 11:26 PMMalek

After weighing all pros and cons (view/location/surrounding, overall plan/facility, size/internal design, developer track record, parking/road access, key risk areas), 23x/ft2 is a fair price (not cheap), with slightly more room for upside vs already blown-up 300-350/ft2 condo. Stay at a 1200ft2 for few years now, love the freedom, community, security and windy high rise, but really too small when family members grows to 5. Have been looking ~1600 to 2000ft2 home with affordable price. Crime rate is on the rise thus skeptical for landed terrace. Maintenance fee must affordable and don't need too luxury and costly shared facilities. Initially motivated by investment thought and bought one 1990ft2 unit, but I think eventually will move in and sell or rent out the smaller one... There should be many my-kind of buyers out there...and 130 odd units are not that many for grab.

January 5, 2010 at 10:30 PMPen

In the building spec, it put down they will use JM light weight wall panel system for the structure & walls.

May I know has anyone else used this on high raise. And how sound is the safety of this syytem for a condo building?

January 5, 2010 at 11:18 PMavatar

after deposit, have to sign SnP in 3 business days!! Can you get home loan within 3 business days?? what kind of sale tactic. Silly developer!!

January 6, 2010 at 11:45 PMPhilip

Does anyone know whether the title is residential or commercial? If commercial, the electric and water will be much more expensive than normal residential title.

January 6, 2010 at 11:52 PMPen

To Philip

To avatar,
This develop indeed is under the kiasu type. Rush for money collection. You had bought 1?

January 7, 2010 at 11:02 AMtry

heard the booking cancellation is very troublesome..

January 7, 2010 at 2:03 PMavatar

To Pen,

I'm tempted to buy 1 type B. May I know what make you prefer type C? I know the type C layout is better than type B. But just that type C is too close to low cost apartment and facing afternoon sun especially the living room wall.

Currently stay at 1k ft condo and a bit too to my family. I'm thinking to upgrade it. Previously I went to see the Reflection condo, 1250 ft asking RM450K. What the heck, so expensive. Now with the same amount of money can buy a 2000ft condo.

Buy Reflection, you got a luxuries condo + branded ( feeling only ), medium density ( 315 ), not sure enough car park or not, don't know the wait time of the lift to serve you.

Buy Zan Condo, you got extra large size of condo, but not luxuries and branded, low density ( 132 units ) , enough car park ( every unit got 2 car park ), got 3 lifts ready to serve you.

Which one to you choose?

January 7, 2010 at 2:35 PMJune

Hi Avatar,

But I think Reflection will be having better view while ZP is not.
So have you booked your unit? As I know not many units available as per last Sat. I actually a bit regret not getting Type C because it comes with 2 side by side car park compared to type B where the car park is back to back. This is not clarified by the salesperson during my selection and I only got to know from this forum. hmm... not professional at all...

January 7, 2010 at 4:00 PMsnoopy

hi do you guys know how many unit of the low cost flat beside Z.P? i wish to buy one now considering :)

January 7, 2010 at 5:35 PMLawrence

Big and cheap not always good thing, originally I tot Zan is worth for the value but after go to the site and see, immediate next hour i went to cancel my booking due to the site full of low cost flat already built and in-waiting to be built. I wonder how I going to re-sale the unit even for RM500k nex time when all the low cost flat are up and mushrooming around. Even if buying for own stay, I also feel not comfortable for the price tag I pay RM450k to get a bigger space but low class enviroment, this defeat the living purpose. I rather pay for RM200k+ flat 900sqf few step away and stay temporary few year before I save more to move to less low cost flat populated area.

I have intead shifted my booking to Reflection which is much more potential and better living area. Of course premium product come with premium price tag which I think worth for it.

January 7, 2010 at 5:35 PMAlex

Type C definitely is better than type B cos built up size is bigger and the more important is the side by side car park which is very much convenience. Just imagine you have to shift your car every now and then if the car parked behind has to go out first. It's ok for those if your second car is seldom use. View in Sg Ara area is not a big issue, for those who compare with Reflection. Good Points for Reflection are SP setia spent a lot on landscape garden, this is their normal practice and that is how they got their reputation. On the other hand if we compare ZP for its value like 2000 sq ft compare to Reflection 1250 sq ft, and ZP is nearer in term of location, low density - only 100+ units. Hope that the developer will see the importance of landscape garden cos it will definitely bring up the property value.

January 7, 2010 at 6:10 PMsnoopy

may i know RM198 maintainence fee included sinking fund?

January 7, 2010 at 9:09 PMPen

To Snoopy,
Maintenance fee RM180, Sinking fund RM18

To Avatar,
I prefer type C, below are the reasons
- No 7 are actually facing the morning sun and the pool
- side by side car park
- better layout as I can have a sliding door for kitchen
- Type C is closer to the flat but no window for the owner to view the flat or vice versa (only view is from the drying area.)
- last unit from the elevator, more privacy.
- same maintenance fee with smaller size type B

Does anyone knows how many units are left there now?

January 7, 2010 at 9:31 PMPen

The flat are with 56 units, ~700sf. Heard it was fully sold, even before the condo.

Just wondering whether there are any bumi lots allocated in the condo? Anyone knows?

I support ZP over Reflection, in term of distance to work (in FIZ), half indoor pool, size, price, density & reasonable monthly fees.

January 7, 2010 at 11:43 PMsnoopy

Thanks Pen for let me know more info and Z.P still hv 20++units left according the sales ppl said.

January 8, 2010 at 10:52 AMtry

anyone went to the sales office? can let me know which floor and types are availble?

January 8, 2010 at 4:26 PMtheBrezza

The lands behind this project acquired by Kewira Jaya S/B on August 2008. And this investment company has been acquired by SP Setia since 2005. Have SP setia ever offer any condo for ~RM230 psf?

Wanna verify? Take half day leave on your working day to do land search at pejabat tanah, only cost u not more than rm50. too much a hassle? i can scan n email u those doc, but with a charge u a fee to cover my cost la :)

January 8, 2010 at 10:13 PMPen

Its should not had left >20 units. My friends grabbed 4 units all together early this week, was told <10 units now.

Which floor your friend grabbed? Do you have the floor plan of the low cost aprt and if ther any possible linkage/connection to the condo? The sales person says the low cost units is not "viewable" and not "connected" but i can't get any info others than this. Hope you can share more infor. i am still considering to get one..

January 9, 2010 at 12:39 PMSteven

theBrezza, are you the same person in The Brezza Condo site?

Thanks for sharing this piece of news. I was worry about the future development there in the first place. Seems like you have done your homework.

January 9, 2010 at 12:49 PMPen

My friends took 3 from 5th, 1 from 13rd. I only hv the floor plan of the condo, not the apartment, but, the plan has shown the outline of both building on how they are connected. Was told that the apartment units were fully taken, many of them were given away as "compensation" to the previous land owners of this projects. Provide me yr email add, if u need the condo floor plan.

January 9, 2010 at 12:52 PMPen

Sound like it is a good potential for SP Setia to fry up the price of this project in near future, with more of their projects... ZP will be a good investment. Let's cross the fingers..

January 9, 2010 at 1:07 PMPen

Confirmed with the ZP sales in the offce today 9 Jan. 14 units left, Type C were fully taken, 3u Type A &n 11u Type B are still available now.

January 9, 2010 at 2:42 PMJune

Try to look at this
Should be the land that Brezza mentioned about. What you guys think? is a good news or bad news??

January 9, 2010 at 2:58 PMtheBrezza

Yes, I am the one. Did i owe u money? :)

Yes, I personally talked to the phase 1 residents, they had form a community to protest and get rid of the low cost. By goverment term if not low cost apartment or super condo, all condo are pangsapuri kos sederhana, bayswater also in this category ok :)

Don't worry, rest asssured SP setia won't sell cheap.

January 9, 2010 at 8:52 PMMichael

Hi Pen / theBrezza,
may i hv all type of floor plan from your.
pls email me on this add.:
Tqs. I'm interest on this condo.

January 9, 2010 at 11:25 PMtry

Thanks Pen.. Pls email the floor plan to the following email add -> It will b good if you have the plan tht show how the 2 bulding are connected.

January 10, 2010 at 12:29 AMavex

the land that sp setia bought(near changkat sg ara 5,6,7,9) are at the left side(ZP is at the right). The more worried one is the big land same side as ZP, stretching from ZP to old folks house. Any idea who own the land and the future project?

January 10, 2010 at 1:20 AMbryan

to Avex,
that land is belong to Koperasi tunas. I saw their master plan before when i visit their idaman iris show room. there will be a inner ring of road built for the whole area starting from idaman iris to old folk house. They plan to built all high rise building on the whole area. you can start seeing idaman cempaka (beside abadi condo), low cost flat(opposite idaman cempaka), idaman iris (beside pahlawan flat) ......

January 10, 2010 at 1:33 AMavex

Hi Bryan,
are there so many flat? I thought they are only pahlawan, idaman cempaka(block A &B) and abadi only...?
By the way, what about those land from ZP to old folk house? Do you know where is kubu?

January 10, 2010 at 1:42 AMbryan

Hi Avex,
cant remember correctly, but i only see high rise building for whole master plan, 2 condo near to back of relau school, 1 flat opposite idmanan iris, all build with 700 to 750 sqft size. But keep in mind, the plan might be changed thru out years..

January 10, 2010 at 2:56 PMtheBrezza


I think Bryan is right, i also heard those land behind idaman cempaka belong to tunas koperasi (towards east).

Those land heading towards summerhill(towards north), bought by Kewira jaya s/b. I din't count exactly, but glace thru about 7 lots of land. Want further details, check with komtar.

January 11, 2010 at 12:11 AMavex

Thanks Byran, Brezza. By the way, do you guys own a unit in ZP? Want to hear owner's voice :)

January 11, 2010 at 10:42 AMtheBrezza

Ya, i bought one of this project, but the landed unit instead. My colleage bought the ZP condo.


January 11, 2010 at 6:07 PMapen

Hi Pen,

This is try. Can you resend the floor plan to below e-address.

January 11, 2010 at 7:17 PMPen

No prob.

By the way I bought 1 unit of ZP type C too.

January 11, 2010 at 8:01 PMSteven

Pen, welcome to the community.
Does anyone ask if the elevator or the lobby has security feature with a tag or something?

January 12, 2010 at 12:44 AMavex

don't think it has the security feature. per sqft is fair but the specs do seem to be good. Any comment on the interior spec? What bricks will be used?

January 12, 2010 at 5:11 PM[alfred]

I wonder if there is still available units left.

Hi Pen, can you help to email me the floor plan if possible? Thanks.

Can anybody share about bank loan? Considering Zero entry cost or 1st year 0%, which one is better?

January 13, 2010 at 10:59 PMtheBrezza

Personal sharing....

By normal practice, 12 mths 0% package is not effective if your unit is high up. 1st yr 0% package best for low floor or landed property. Condo, foundation + structure work may take 70-100% of the incentive period to reach ur middle-high floor unit (by avg, contractor deliver 2 storey structure work per month), am i confusing u? But, dun take words literally, make your call after details calculation to get how much the legal fee vs potential interest saving...

January 14, 2010 at 12:07 AMPen

I would go for investment Home Loan, no lock in period...

January 14, 2010 at 12:26 AMCatherine


Which bank currently offer the best no lock in period package in the market?

January 14, 2010 at 12:30 AMPen

sad to say there aren't many banks are offering loan to this project except 3. Only 1 out of 3 offer investment home loan, that had left me no choice also. Public bank gives BLR-1.5%, no interest free period, no zero entry cost pkg. Can someone let me know which other bank provide better rate than this with no lock in period?

January 14, 2010 at 2:14 AMtheBrezza

Hi Catherine... there is a way to enjoy the beauty of the both world... email me if you interested to know more :-

January 14, 2010 at 9:59 AMavatar

I'm a bit confused about progressive payment. Anyone can share about progressive payment? how it work?

Bank U said, developer will take money from bank based on % completion of the project regardless level of unit. This mean that you have not advantage of zero entry cost package even thought your unit is on high floor. You should take the 1st year 0% package.

Bank A said, developer will take money from bank upon completion of your unit by stage. This mean that you have advantage of zero entry cost package if your unit is on high floor.

Which one is true statement?

January 14, 2010 at 10:21 AMSteven

If I can remember, UOB does offer investment package, but their rate is BLR-1.25. Public is still better.

January 14, 2010 at 11:40 AMJune

I think Bank A is true. For foundation & piling work yes, developer will take money from all units, but if come to structure & framework, I don't think they are able to request money if it has not reach your unit.

January 14, 2010 at 11:42 AMJune

But really not many choices as they only have 3 panel bankers. Anyone apply from UOB? May I know what are the packages they are offering?

January 15, 2010 at 9:16 AM(e+ho)ng

I had the same experience as you did and in most cases, what June mentioned is right.

Nevertheless, it will be best if you clarify it with the developer instead since banks were giving you conflicting answers.

January 15, 2010 at 9:47 AMavatar

Last year, UOB was offer BLR-2.2%, 1st year 0%, 5 years lock in period. I don't know this year home loan package.

January 15, 2010 at 10:58 AMLee

i dont think got 0% ,this year is stadard at BLR-1.7 or 1.6,i hear from banker,,,

January 15, 2010 at 11:26 PMPen

Both UOB & AMBANK are still offering BLR-2.2% + 1 year interest free package now, except Public bank.

January 18, 2010 at 4:16 PMavex

Anyone knows now what will be built next to ZP? The big piece of land between ZP and old folk house?

January 20, 2010 at 12:49 AMLee

January 20, 2010 at 9:43 AMavatar

wow... sound like doing business.

wanna make quick profit right after Type A & C were sold out?

When ppl will start selling type B.

January 20, 2010 at 9:53 AMJune

Just out of curiosity, is it only those cash buyers are able to sell their unit when the property is still under construction?

January 21, 2010 at 8:19 AMavex

Hi Brezza, can you send those documents you have from jabatan tanah? I don't mind sharing the cost you have paid. Send it to pls.

what about you, Lee? do you own one unit? Do email me

January 26, 2010 at 12:19 PMLee

Hi zan i own 3 unit ,,,

January 26, 2010 at 12:31 PMLawrence

i don think u people r able to sell it before it is completed, as this round many investor rushed in to buy rather than real resident who buy to stay. b ready to locked down your investment for next 3 yrs b4 it complete. I doubt u r able to sell 500k after 3 years.

January 27, 2010 at 5:42 AMtze

I also believe most buyers are investors. To make money i believe u need to sell it at least >500K. For the coming years, the condo and apartment will be oversupply and i dont think the price will appreciate much.

January 27, 2010 at 2:14 PMtry

only condo/apt oversupplied? what about landed property? may be can snap something cheap next year.

January 28, 2010 at 3:17 PMSummer

Hi Peak,
How much u wish to sell your unit?

January 29, 2010 at 12:19 AMLee

wow at lever 22 super cheap???very intereting ,fuyoh,,,,why ur state ur price to share ,,,

February 3, 2010 at 11:25 PMJames

went to the site 2 weeks back, but look like the problem will be the main access road.

February 4, 2010 at 4:31 PMzan

Good news. The land next to it belongs to sp setia, just confirmed with the sp setia office at sg. ara.

February 5, 2010 at 12:14 AMkeong16

Zan ,thank the info is good for investor ,,,,

February 5, 2010 at 12:31 AMSteven

Dun think should worry. If you look at the construction of drain in front of idaman iris, you should be able to guess how big is the road in the future. But I am just guessing .. :-)

February 7, 2010 at 11:42 AMPen

The planned access road was meant to be 100ft wide. Its not a worry at all.

February 10, 2010 at 11:54 PMavex

Any idea whether the famous jammed relau traffic light road will be expanded? I saw there are shop house been demolished.
100Ft road is wide...very wide indeed.

February 18, 2010 at 2:18 PMPen

What is the plan of SP Setia on that piece of land? Terrace? Semi-D? Another condo? Please share if you have the insider info, thanks.

February 20, 2010 at 1:05 AMPen

Is Zan Pavillon fully sold? Anyone has the update?

February 23, 2010 at 1:48 PMzan

it's mixed development, landed and condo.
Can call up sp setia office, they already told people that they are launching their plan end of the year.

By the way, on ZP facilities, the specification are very loose. Any one know exactly what will be the swimming pool size? The swimming pool quality will determine the condo class.

February 26, 2010 at 8:30 AMkeong16

info from my friend ZP swimming more huge then the LOOC,is very 100% infomation,

February 26, 2010 at 11:29 PMinvest

Btw, anyone knows about whether there is any bumi unit that may not have been released yet? I went there today and found not much choice left - only units in the lowest 2 floors and those in the same floor as the water tank (and also the unit above/below the water tank) are available. Want to know if there will be more choices as I forgotten to ask about bumi unit.

March 1, 2010 at 2:58 PMzan

The bumi units all are taken up by the developer, they have malay bosses who can buy first and sell it later upon completion at higher price. After all, they still have to pay 5% to government(if they open to nonbumi).

Invest, pls email me if you wan to know about available better unit.

Keong16, how sure are you about the pool size? Do you know if LOOC pool bigger than regency height or pearl garden? It's not likely that luxury condo LOOC pool is small than zp???

March 1, 2010 at 3:01 PMzan

Another important piece of info, the shop houses at relau traffic light(the jammed area) are demolished. Any idea what are they doing with the demolished area? expand the road or new road to ease the jam?

March 1, 2010 at 10:41 PMinvest

Thanks Zan for the info! I am interested to know what is the plan for the Relau "famous" traffic light junction as well. Any insider info sharing appreciated.

March 21, 2010 at 10:06 PMPenang

Just chat with frez working in SP Setia, this cangkat site work will commence from 3Q of 2010. But, was told only terrace house (many many designs), no condos... a bit unbelievable.

March 31, 2010 at 2:02 PMApplepie

For those who intend for own use must be careful, this development is same as Taman Kang Har Tong Residence in which polystrene plastic materials were used in construction to replace brick. To my surprise even high cost landed property the developer also used cheap materials.I know this because I stay nearby and witnessed the whole construction progress.

Thus, I personally asked the sales office of Zan Pavillon and the sales person admitted that some of the wall will be using polystrene materials.
No surprise that the developer will repeat the same trick.
Buyers, please check your S&P carefully....

April 4, 2010 at 12:39 PMinvest

Thanks Applepie for the info. I will check with the sales person I am in contact with.

April 5, 2010 at 2:09 PMpenang

invest, i hv spoken with the sales rep, and he has confirmed to me that the developer r using brick to construct the wall. My concern is whether it's a requirement 4 the developer to install CCTV in the elevators & at the staircase.

April 9, 2010 at 12:20 AMlim

ZP SOLD OUT, BERES HAbis. Misss the boat... Anyone intent to release their unit

April 10, 2010 at 12:04 AMkeong16

i dont think is all sold out,still got high floor unit available but price maybe a little high,,,,,,

April 13, 2010 at 4:19 PMJoe

Hmm.. 2 months ago is this the one hving promo at queensbay? But i was told 360-380sqft.
and they brag bout having olympic size swimming pool

April 20, 2010 at 7:04 PMbryan

Bad news to those bought Zan units facing east/north. there will be a condo (3 blocks) built in future in front of it. Refer to GIM company for riverside project..

Good bye for those bought for value liao.

April 26, 2010 at 8:02 PMPenang

Check out The Uban Residence, built by same developer.

Swimming pool is about the size of wading pool, and wading pool is about the size dual bath tub.

And check out the height of the lobby area, 10 ft, so "grand" until i can't believe it is a lobby.

If Zan is to duplicate Uban Residence, plz also duplicate the location.

May 3, 2010 at 4:08 PMAlan

I just visited the sale office, quite interested in this condo, i'm considering 8 floor no 4 and 9 floor no 4, what do you think about this condo?

May 4, 2010 at 5:07 PMkeong16

if u like buy it lol

May 5, 2010 at 10:28 AMPen

This developer is surely building the property in fast pace, they will soon asking for 3rd progressive payment. Hopefully they will complete ahead of time, can't wait to stay in.

Facing another decent condo project will totally devalue the property? I don't think so, as this is true, many others in KL/PG will have the same issue.

I actually welcome more highend projects in this area, not many lands are left too.

May 7, 2010 at 3:04 PMWilliamyl

yesterday got one girl call me for asking me is it interested for this projects.....she said still left level 4,5,8 and 9.....
so still can go and ask if u interested.

May 12, 2010 at 5:37 PMkeahyu

There have been a lot of complaints about this developer esp those who've seen the The Uban Residence by them. Swimming pool is small. Ceiling is low. As a purchaser, I was also quite dissatisfied with a few things. I didn't mind the pool though, cos it feels really cozy. Furthermore, if there was a big pool, then that would cause the maintenance charges to increase. Overall, after going in with my reno guys, I feel it's pretty good and a lot of things well thought off. For those complaining about the ceiling height in the bedrooms, try this simple test. Knock on the ceiling. You will be surprised to find out that it's not actually concrete. In fact, it's a plaster ceiling. Put in place by the developer. So you not only save on plaster ceiling cost, you save on the wiring costs as well. Not too bad after all.

June 19, 2010 at 3:02 PMPen

Anyone has the update of the sales, was it completely sold & the construction progress? Thanks.

June 24, 2010 at 12:00 PMszern

anyone have the developer website or contact

June 25, 2010 at 12:01 PMavatar

Construction update :

Construction was very fast from ground to 4th floor. After that, progress is slow like turtle. Last 2 weeks still doing framework on 6th. I can see they are focusing on landed properties with full force.

June 26, 2010 at 12:28 AMPen

Thanks a lot avatar, are u the Z.P. owner too? ... Then it will take sometime to reach my floor, in oreder for them to take another 15% from me.

June 27, 2010 at 10:18 PMavatar

I have a unit.

Latest news :

The Golden Triangle project that located at the corner of Relau and Sg. Ara junction are selling like hot cake. Hope they would widen road and solve the famous traffic jam.

Hopefully its bring good for ZAN in term of value. What you guys think?

July 1, 2010 at 11:46 PMPen

Well, I will cross my fingers to hope it will bring positive impact to ZP.

I just realized that even Vistaria condo also start to ask for >400k for 1ksf unit. And my friend just sold her Vistaria unit for 260k just early last year.... See the contrast in just over 1 year?

Now I wish ZP can reach 600k soon, hahaha, I start dreaming now.

Penang condo price is getting crazy.

July 2, 2010 at 1:27 PMmalaysian problem.its still dirt cheap for penangites. lets hope for 1.2million.

July 2, 2010 at 1:43 PMMr.Business

I think we need to consider who is the target market which is willing to pay RM600K for Zan Pavillion.

Mr Business of Cari Forum

July 3, 2010 at 12:33 AMPen

Well, regardless what is the target market. If the terrace price continue to go near to $1M, & all the sub 1ksf condo continue to approach $500k. ZP with 2ksf build up, priced at $700k is not going only to happen in my dream, but for real.

July 3, 2010 at 6:43 PMRafael

I am an owner myself. Just curious where is the exact location of Reverside Residences? North from ZP? Hopefully it will not interfere with view. :-)

July 3, 2010 at 9:41 PMMr.Business

Hi Rafael,
Riverside Residences is at opposite road of Airmas's Summerhill Villas. Riverside Residences will encloses rumah orang tua there.

Hope this could give you some idea of the location.

Mr Business of Cari Forum

July 3, 2010 at 10:00 PMMr.Business

I noticed there is a comment that states that "the planned access road was meant to be 100ft wide."

From what I know, 66ft road is 4 lane road, 100ft is 6 lane road? Possible?
The access road is from Idaman Iris to Zan Pavillion?

Hope anyone know details about access road could share here.

Mr Business of Cari Forum

July 5, 2010 at 1:30 AMPen

Yes, the proposed access road width (100') is drawn clearly on the developer's plan. If u need let me have your email.

szern, for developer address, you can find it at

The developer name shall be OHM Group of Company.

July 6, 2010 at 2:02 AMMalek

Visited ideal Regency (1300ft2). The living room is just perfect. Comfortably house 3+2+1 massage chair sofa set, with a nice pool-view spacious balcony. Not to mentioned the roomy dinning and piano area. BUT, bedrooms are just way too small! That's the compromise. BTW, sub-sales prices around 460K+. Other 1100 to 1300 ft2 condo (e.g. Golden Triangle) normally comes with 10ft wide living : really small, can barely house 1 L shape sofa. Not much different from those 800 to 900ft2 apartment or condo. So, really can't wait for Zan to complete. OHM, please do a good job. Don't let us (genuine buyers) down.

July 6, 2010 at 1:18 PMPen

ZP is about 2kspf, only have 3+1 bedrooms. It will have huge room size, hall size as well as the big lanai. Maintenance fees is <$200 & low density... Great to keep as own stay.

July 6, 2010 at 10:36 PMPen

I am more worried about the size of the swimming pool. They mentioned nothing on the paper.

July 7, 2010 at 11:19 AMavatar

I like Zan because its has huge rooms & hall space. 3 + 1 is good combination. I don't need 4 + 1 or 5 + 1, that will end up small room size.

Have you guys seen the Relection 1.5k spf condo?? Does it look like having 1.5k spf space. I didn't see it.

July 8, 2010 at 10:54 PMPen

Layout plays a big part on the actual feeling. With ~230psf price, low density, free 2 car parks, <$200 mthly fee, ZP was really a bargain. Where else can we find a cheaper condo around this area now? TGT? $240psf but at the busy junction? It will be too difficult for my future visitors to find a temporary carpark. Potentially a few big speakers just reside outside your windows?

Never regretted getting one unit. Hope the price will continue to appreciate.

July 21, 2010 at 11:09 PMPen

20'x50' is not big too, but decent enough. Hopefully this OHM/Eco Hill keeps their word, where nothing is on paper so far.
