Pearl City integrated township in Simpang Ampat, Nibong Tebal, is another landmark in mainland Penang that is gearing up for more growth.
This complements the opening of the Second Penang Bridge and the Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified double track project.
The mixed residential and commercial township on a 445ha project site by Tambun Indah Land Bhd will be fully developed in eight years and so far, 161.8ha is already developed with residential units.
The company opened its Pearl City Sales Gallery at the project site on Sunday to serve the customers better.
Tambun Indah executive director Teh Theng Theng said the project would include a hotel, private hospital, college, food and beverage outlets as well as a retirement village when completed.
“We are currently focusing on the RM131.3mil Pearl Indah and RM181mil Pearl Residence projects and the opening of the sales gallery at the project site.
“We are confident of selling about 50 units in the first two weeks of the projects.
“We have noticed that more island residents are buying units on the mainland,” she said at the opening of the sales gallery.
Also present were Tambun Indah executive director Thaw Yeng Cheong and financial controller Steven Neoh Sze Tsin.
The company also donated RM100,000 to the proposed SMJK(C) Jit Sin building fund in south Sebeang Prai.
Teh added that the people on the island preferred to buy property on the mainland as prices of landed property on the island had shot up sky high.
“They can buy a double-storey terrace unit for RM320,000 in our project, whereas it would cost more than RM800,000 on the island,” she said.
The project is strategically located about 15 minutes away from the North-South Expressway, about 20 minutes from the Second Penang Bridge and about two minutes from the Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified double track station.
It is also close the Batu Kawan Industrial Estate, Science Park and the Bukit Minyak Industrial Estate.
“It is an ideal residential choice for modern families as we have innovatively designed units for people who want a quality lifestyle,” said Teh.
Pearl Villas with 335 units is an exclusive gated community.
It has double-storey terrace homes on a land area of 1,430sq ft each, double-storey semi-detached homes with a land size of 2,660sq ft each and double-storey bungalow units with a land area of 3,240sq ft each.
