E&O piles on the luxury for Quayside condo project

Property News/ 19 January 2010 Leave a comment


AN INTERNATIONAL marina, premium water-taxi service, upscale food and retail outlets and commanding views of the Andaman Sea are among the attractions property developer E&O Property Development Bhd will offer potential buyers at its RM1.8 billion Quayside Seafront Resort Condominum development in Penang next month.

The company's general manager (sales and marketing) Lim Hooi Yen yesterday said the luxury condominium project – which is part of E&O's Seri Tanjung Pinang waterfront development – will also boast the region's first private waterpark within a gated community.

"Apart from marketing the project to well-travelled and well-heeled locals, we will also promote the units in markets like Singapore, Hong Kong, Medan, Jakarta, Surabaya, China, Australia, Japan and Korea," she told a media briefing at the project site in Penang.

The Quayside condominiums, which comprise seven blocks of seafront units, will be sprawled on a 8.4ha site, with 1.8ha of land dedicated to a signature waterpark and clubhouse.

Lim said the proposed project is expected to be completed in about seven to 10 years and about 60 per cent of the total 1,200 Quayside condominium units are expected to be sold to Malaysians.

On the Straits Quay retail marina, which is adjoining the Quayside Condominiums, Lim said the 4.96ha retail enclave will offer everything from boutiques to bistros, seaside cafes, bars and boat rides.

"Just like in Venice, Italy, we hope to introduce the E&O limo which will be a water limousine service," she added, saying that the com-pany has already identified a watercraft that is needed for the water-taxi service.

"We also plan to engage the fishermen in the area to work with us, by having local fishing boats bringing in the island's fresh catch of the day twice daily to a fishermen's pontoon which we plan to build."

Straits Quay and the marina are expected to open by the end of this year, she added.
