    Location – Permai is better than Utama, the jln bukit minyak will be very jam. At least Permai nearer to the main road. Can’t imagine the jam situationif the resident increase for both garden in the future. Flyover need to be consider at the main road Traffic light.
    Environment – No need to say, Utama wins.

    Price & Size
    Permai terrace = 22×70(348k) while Utama phase 3 only 22×60 but rm378k.
    Utama only phase 2 worth a buy, phase 3 too expensive & somemore smaller.

    I prefer the land area to be longer so that it is easier to park your car :)

    @Site Owner
    You buy BM Permai? double storey terrace or SemiD?

    Site Owner
    April 5th, 2011 at 11:26 | #7

    Actually I’m not buying :), but that is usually one of my main concern when looking for houses. When the car porch space is limited, your house will looks cramp.

    The window lay out of of the small room is facing back lane. No rpivacy of people can stand at the window and peep.

    this garden is small, dunno when it will launch it phase 2?

    @Site Owner
    If u buy BM Utama u will facing this problem. BM permai (standard size DST) car porch is about 3~5 ft longer. Current left DST units (4 units only) car porch have additional 5~6 ft than standard size DST. U should able to park another 2 “Viva” behind ur 2 cars. It’s not easier to find about 30 ft long size car porch for a DST.

    The Krico Supermarket will be taken over by Carefour. So those nearby property like BM Permai will be definitely increase on next wave..

    April 21st, 2011 at 13:14 | #12

    I am curious why BM Utama and those Alma property that near BM Tesco put so much advertisement while BM permai put very little advertisement..

  13. mason
    April 21st, 2011 at 14:02 | #13

    I think one of the reason is because BM Utama and those Alma property is develop by DNP, Big developer which is public listed, while BM Permai is small developer…

    Site Owner
    April 21st, 2011 at 14:06 | #14

    Agreed. Larger car porch is always better. And you house will look nicer :)

    Site Owner
    April 21st, 2011 at 14:11 | #15

    agreed to mason. DNP’s combined GDV of BM utama and Alma’s area is so much more than BM Permai, that’s why they can afford to spend so much. :)

    hi guys..

    Do you know the heliconia ville show house is still available?
    and how much is it?

  17. T
    May 4th, 2011 at 20:15 | #17

    last heard is around RM 618k and still have a few left. . . .

  18. t
    May 17th, 2011 at 17:28 | #18

    go up again RM 638k so fast.

  19. coco
    May 20th, 2011 at 14:41 | #19

    to those who talk high on Utama let me tell you a true story, about DNP, they like to con people , like they did in bukit minyak indah, do visit bukit minyak indah you will know their workmanship and skills, they play out on piling, building crack here and there, after 10 years, still people renovate, you can interview any of them at bukit minyak indah

  20. mm
    May 21st, 2011 at 14:22 | #20

    Agree with coco, my ex-boss hv a semiD there, now his house not only building crack, somemore car porch area sinking seriously.

    May 21st, 2011 at 17:38 | #21

    To be fair to the developer, the workmanship is depends on the contractor that they are using. Cheap contractor’s workmanship will looks cheap. Hopefully this time DNP will pay more to hire a better contractor to do the job.

  22. Jamie
    May 23rd, 2011 at 13:12 | #22

    I think that the developer should be responsible for the problem face by the residence at bukit minyak indah. How can they just leave the problem and just improve for the next project just like that? This is a house that you are talking about and it takes someone’s lifetime investment to purchase 1.

    I wonder did DNP do something about this? Is the while bukit minyak indah residence is affected?

    May 23rd, 2011 at 21:28 | #23

    Agreed that the developer should also responsible.

    anybody have any idea when BM permai will launch Phase 2 ?

    i m still waiting phase 2 to launch

  26. coco
    May 28th, 2011 at 19:53 | #26

    i heard phase 2 will delay , due to telecommunition tower is near to phase 1 semi D, due to that they have cancel the bungolow lot constrution , and there is a few lot they cannot sell, and planning to start semi D lot first, the management still haven’t decide on the both project but don’t worry they will decide after they get the OC for phase 1

  27. mason
    May 29th, 2011 at 13:10 | #27

    where you head about the news of delay?
    both project?bungalo & phase 2 you mean?
    to start the semD lot first? which semiD you mean?

  28. coco
    June 4th, 2011 at 12:04 | #28

    bungalo project is delay, and phase 2 semiD infront of double story teres will start after they obtain OC for double storey teres

    June 6th, 2011 at 22:42 | #29

    traffic jam would not be a big problem, as Permai is just 1 km away or less from the traffic light, even though jammed, also just 1km only. Anyone know whether the jalan bukit minyak is flooded area??

  30. Jade
    June 6th, 2011 at 22:44 | #30

    anyone from here is the owner, regardless terrace, SemiD or bungalow?

  31. Angie
    June 6th, 2011 at 23:09 | #31

    anyone knows who will maintain the community hall at BM Permai ? Who pay for electrical light ? Really curios…. 😛

  32. mm
    June 7th, 2011 at 09:32 | #32

    Jade, i bought the terrace…u too owner of bm permai?
    Decide permai than utama is also because nearer to the main road. As you said jam also shorter than bm utama.
    road infront of bm permai is higher,should be no flood, but after kota permai may be as land lower.

  33. Jade
    June 7th, 2011 at 23:46 | #33

    @mm, me too owner of bm permai :)

  34. Max
    June 8th, 2011 at 13:24 | #34

    Hi Jade, wondering which type you bought? Semi-D?
    I just went to the office last weekend, interested in their Semi-D (Anthurium), but currently all sold-out, except the 2 end-lots.
    Guess I would have to wait for their Phase 2 now…..

  35. mm
    June 8th, 2011 at 14:05 | #35

    Among the Terrace, SemiD & Bungalow, the anthurium type is the best I think.
    Max, why don’t you consider the Super SemiD along the entrance.
    Still got many lots left i think.

  36. Max
    June 9th, 2011 at 00:53 | #36

    Hi mm, ha…I been to the show house, first sight, felt in luv with the SuperSemi D….LOL.
    but the price is above my budget…actually I’d rather go for bungalow for that price.
    I don’t like the Anthurium end lots.

    but the problem is, the office lady told me this properties are not guarded??
    i felt surprise as there are bungalows inside and not guarded??

    Hope that their Phase2 Semi-D will be priced around 500k…

  37. mm
    June 9th, 2011 at 08:25 | #37

    Ya, not guarded, but they build a community hall, wonder who will going to maintain it. strange. SemiD phase2 surely above 500k, if i not mistaken existing Anthurium already 518k, rite?

  38. T
    June 9th, 2011 at 08:28 | #38

    The superSemi D in term of land Size is actually much bigger than the standard bungalow. I think the developer will raise the price for this soon.

    From the look of the design it is quite modern, wonder why it is still not sold out..

    as look like a lot of other project sold out quite fast.

  39. mm
    June 9th, 2011 at 18:21 | #39

    Maybe is located at the main entrance of the BM permai, not so nice.
    Maybe too high end(expensive), hard to sale.
    Maybe nowadays ppls perfer build up area instead of land area.

    if it build normal semiD, i think already sold out.

  40. Jade
    June 10th, 2011 at 23:49 | #40

    i agree with mm, if super semi D is same as anthurium, it will be all sold out by now. looking at now property market, i believe phase 2 price will be much higher than now regardless terrace or semi D

  41. Jade
    June 10th, 2011 at 23:54 | #41

    there is another project much more nearer to the highway, DESA Titi Panjang, two and a half storey semi D, land area same as anthurium, price from 470K and above. launching 10th &11th june. feel free to drop by there. it is just rihgt before the mobil petrol station.

    June 11th, 2011 at 00:32 | #42

    Here is the post for Desa Titi Panjang


  43. T
    June 15th, 2011 at 07:42 | #43

    Wah, heard from someone BM utama 3rd phase terrace go up RM 408k.

    That is the price of Semi D 2~3 yrs ago. Titi Panjang also 470k only. might as well get a semi d there.

    At this rate, the newly grad will not be able to get house in BM also.

  44. mm
    June 15th, 2011 at 08:21 | #44

    ya, i also heard already rm408k, crazy price. somemore damn small 22×60 only.
    not worth at all.
    the titi panjang price really low compare to current bm rate. somemore titi panjang location is beside the main road.

  45. M
    June 15th, 2011 at 11:13 | #45

    Anybody can comment on whether BM permai & titi panjang area is flood area?

    Agreed that location is good as right next to Autocity exit if work in Penang Island.

    June 15th, 2011 at 12:07 | #46

    Both BM Permai and Titi Panjang are not flood area.

  47. T
    June 15th, 2011 at 13:32 | #47

    Green Park Avenue is even nearer if vs BM Permai and Titi Panjang. Pricing is around 450k, if you can accept the high voltage cable. 25min to reach there from Bayan Lepas.

    Hard to find a decent house with decent price now a day.

  48. t
    June 15th, 2011 at 14:20 | #48

    I am staying nearby Auto City , 25 min to be there from bayan lepas is only happen during weekend or before 7am after after 7pm in the morning. Pls go to google map, there is a quarry nearby Green Park Avenue.

  49. T
    June 15th, 2011 at 16:13 | #49

    Maybe true, actually i time this when i going back to BM from Bayan Lepas around 5 pm++. My working place is just on the first turn going to to Bayan Lepas. So this may not be the same with you.

    But still more convenient, even just by counting the traffic light. Already a few more. . . .

    Anyway is quarry a big concern? i heard the one near Green Park Avenue is illegal. The developer already talk to the authority.

  50. Jade
    June 15th, 2011 at 21:58 | #50

    any possibility BM Permai turn into guarded or gated?

  51. Jade
    June 15th, 2011 at 21:59 | #51

    anyone know how much is Villa Primero semi D? built up & land area?

  52. Max
    June 15th, 2011 at 23:39 | #52

    Ya Jade, good question. I’m really interested in BM Permai houses but it doesn’t even guarded….but weird that they build a community hall between the super semi-d and bungalow…possible of guarded maybe?

  53. Max
    June 16th, 2011 at 00:38 | #53

    Jade, which type you bought in BM Permai? Any Bungalow buyer here?

  54. t
    June 16th, 2011 at 08:26 | #54

    Community hall is dewan serba guna, every Taman will have one. And normally it is just a empty dewan unless developer detail out the facilities in the dewan. So a dewan does not grand for guarded community maybe only the dewan is guarded and access with membership only.

  55. Max
    June 16th, 2011 at 10:41 | #55

    I just talked to the office again, according to Irene, this housing area has another exit, which is to factories area in Bt. Minyak….so….chances of having guarded in the front entrance is :(…..and no point as well if there’s another entrance from the back…

  56. T
    June 16th, 2011 at 11:15 | #56

    HI Max, you bought bungalow? the price increase like water flowing, you already earn on paper….

  57. t
    June 16th, 2011 at 11:22 | #57

    Jade, the price for Villa Primero was quoted at RM643K during Jan this year, the developer website has the information on the buildup and land area

  58. mm
    June 16th, 2011 at 13:41 | #58

    Anyone ask sales office when OC can be obtain?

  59. Max
    June 16th, 2011 at 14:22 | #59

    hi T, not yet…still considering. I hope I had bought earlier…LOL.

    hi mm, i asked yesterday, they said end of this year?

  60. mm
    June 16th, 2011 at 14:58 | #60

    last year i ask, they said June this yr, few mths ago i ask again they said Oct this yr…now said end of this yr…haha…developer style…

    Guarded for BM Permai? I think will not as it is not the initial plan…
    the only way i think is that BM Permai resident themselve hire Security Guard 24×7, use the community hall as the base, instead of guard, may be Gated…hahaha.

  61. Max
    June 16th, 2011 at 16:15 | #61

    Ya, that’s what I heard from office too. Regarding guarded or not, it’s back to the residents community to decide.
    Gated?? I don’t think that’s possible, not every housing area can be gated. It needs certain authorization from government to approve it, and the housing title also different.

  62. L
    June 16th, 2011 at 16:53 | #62

    don’t you consider the tropicale residency ? i bought a terrace unit there.

  63. Max
    June 16th, 2011 at 17:34 | #63

    Yes, I saw this properties too. The website is very well designed :)
    However, the location is something that I don’t like about…
    Houses are really nice there.

  64. mm
    June 16th, 2011 at 17:59 | #64

    Location is always the first priority…
    Tropicale residency price vs location is expensive.
    A few km already can reach Kulim… but the price is mainland price…haha…unfair…

  65. L
    June 16th, 2011 at 18:08 | #65

    ya. maybe now, the price is consider not cheap at that area. but it will advantage when the second link open.

  66. Jade
    June 16th, 2011 at 23:17 | #66

    guarded & gated is just a trend… they are just applying the condo style into landed housing property. lots of problem when some resident pay the maintainance and some not paying. at the end, the whole taman resident paying 3rd party to collect the mantainance fees….

  67. L
    June 17th, 2011 at 21:59 | #67

    i believe many developer will start for guarded and gated housing in bm area. it is for safety, better living environment nowadays.

  68. T
    June 20th, 2011 at 11:29 | #68

    So happen to pass by the sales office yesterday, check with one of the person working inside. Seem like the Bungalow unit go up 688k today.

    Max, have you buy it?

  69. mm
    June 20th, 2011 at 15:29 | #69

    T, are you owner of BM permai? which type? how about the price for SemiD & Terrace now?
    Besides, now they are building houses behind the Super SemiD, bungalo, semiD or SuperSemiD? anyone know?
    As far as i know initial plan the house behind the SuperSemiD consider phase 2 project?

  70. T
    June 20th, 2011 at 16:11 | #70

    not sure did i heard correctly, but the developer plan to develop first then sell.
    anyway semi d is left with 2 odd shape, terrace is left with 2 end lot. Bungalow and super semi d still got plenty.

    what you didn’t see is phase 2. Super bungalow is out of the picture. Developer is buying more land at behind.

  71. mm
    June 20th, 2011 at 17:43 | #71

    for my point of view, current market trend SemiD is the most popular, follow up by terrace, if i am BM permai developer, next round sure will focus on SemiD and terrace.

    Nice to hear that the developer is buying more land…if not BM Permai area still look small in term of size.

  72. Max
    June 20th, 2011 at 20:55 | #72

    I’m still in considering stage….but probably will confirm these 2days.
    Comparing around, still find BM Permai is the best after all, in terms of price, design and location, and building material too. (Red Bricks)

    The Price for bungalow doesn’t go up as planned, still at RM658k. But the office lady told me it will still be going up sooner or later…

  73. Max
    June 20th, 2011 at 21:01 | #73

    ya, I’m wondering too,
    T, you are the owner of BM Permai too? Which type?

    The one that is under construction behind the Super Semi-D is another Super Semi-D….and I guess it’s Ultra Semi-D..LOL!

    Bungalow units left not much now, sold around 70% now.

  74. T
    June 21st, 2011 at 07:49 | #74

    Oh, then i was miss inform by them. When i visit on Sunday, i was told going up on Monday by one of the lawyer assistant.

    Yes, i own a unit in BM Permai.

    Never ask before the unit behind the super Semi D.

  75. Max
    June 23rd, 2011 at 09:05 | #75

    Well….finally……I’m on board !
    Mind to share which banks you guys taking loan from? rate good?

    Another 2 units of Super Semi-D sold when I visited to office on Monday.
    and I heard many equerries on bungalow and super semi-d units in last few days…..hurry if any of you interested.

  76. T
    June 23rd, 2011 at 11:51 | #76

    Did you buy the bungalow or the super semi-d?

  77. Max
    June 23rd, 2011 at 12:06 | #77

    I booked on the bungalow. Still price at 658k, but heard that increasing very soon…..
    @T, how about you? which unit did you buy?

  78. Jade
    June 23rd, 2011 at 17:30 | #78

    really love the super semi D, but price is over budget, and it is quite near the main road.

  79. Max
    June 23rd, 2011 at 17:35 | #79

    there’s one thing I don’t like about the super semi-D….
    in the first floor, the 3 bedrooms at the back will be sharing one bathroom…and the washing sink is build outside the bathroom, facing one of the bedroom…this is something doesn’t make sense….

  80. T
    June 23rd, 2011 at 22:42 | #80

    Actually i have another thought, taking out the wash room make the room bigger. Prefer room bigger.

  81. Max
    June 23rd, 2011 at 23:39 | #81

    @T, so you bought the Super Semi-D?

    if u take out the washroom, then the 3 bedrooms have no washroom in the first floor…?

  82. T
    June 24th, 2011 at 07:50 | #82

    sorry max i mean was wash room outside of the room, still maintain one washroom outside the room. if each room come with washroom, i can understand the privacy but then the room will be so small. And you need to maintain so many wash room.

    I wish i has taken the Super Semi-d, but no.

  83. Max
    June 24th, 2011 at 09:16 | #83

    Ohh.. ic , ic..
    now i’m praying that my loan will get approved…
    WHH seems planning to build condo/apartment next to the area next year….

  84. mm
    June 24th, 2011 at 12:29 | #84

    the supersemiD, One of the room at 1st floor has an open area, that one can convert to wash room.

    The condo/apartment tell already said will build since last yr. But i personally not so prefer because it will makes the jalan bukit minyak more jam…

    Hi all, i just went to the show house this evening unfortunately the sale office was closed …Anyone here know the prices for 2-Storey Terrace, Semi-Detached and Bungalow, are they still available ??

  86. coco

    June 26th, 2011 at 09:56 | #87

    Normal Semi-D left 2 corner lots only.
    Super Semi-D left 6 or 7 units. ~680k? not sure.
    Bungalow left around 10 units. 658k now, but increasing soon.

  88. Jade
    June 26th, 2011 at 14:41 | #88

    @Max, now the bungalow is rm658k already? if not mistaken, last year the price is about rm598k, right?

  89. Max
    June 26th, 2011 at 17:49 | #89

    Ya, RM598 is the earliest, then 638, now…658.
    But going to 688k soon….

    Hi, would like to know more on Anthurium End Lot which 2 unit was not sold yet…what is the difference between other unit? What is the current price?
    Any1 know if the terrace is still available?
    (plan to visit the site this coming weekend :>)

  91. Max
    June 26th, 2011 at 23:17 | #91

    the last 2 lots have bigger land. The price was 570k & 620k, I don’t know if they do increase it lately. But if paying 620k for the Semi-D, why not 658k for the bungalow…just my 2 cents.

    Terrace left 2 corner units too. But those 2 without land. If you refer to the ‘Master Plan’ on the top of the page, it’s the Lot 10 & 11.

    Hi Max, thanks for sharing, the 2 unit #10 & 11 look not so nice with 1 site “cut-off”….the price cheaper?

    I’m looking for unit to stay too….:>

    when 2nd phase open for booking?

  97. Max
    June 27th, 2011 at 12:37 | #97

    Ya, you’re right. the 2units with ‘cut-off’ left down now. Probably with smaller sq.ft too. Price, i’m not sure…
    you may consider the bungalow or Super Semi-D now.
    They are currently working on the Giant Super Semi-D now….

    June 27th, 2011 at 22:30 | #100

    I visited their show house on their launch day.
    House so so, reasonable price (Cheaper than BM Permai).
    Good Location.
    But one major problem I found, the entrance and exit from the area.
    I asked their sales person, and they told me government does not approve traffic lights in that junction. So…..

    and it seems that the housing area is lower than the main road…flooding??

  101. Sam
    June 28th, 2011 at 17:20 | #101

    just go to have a look at Plumeria Showhouse, not really like the layout…the upstair bedroom “2” very small…no wonder no#10 & 11 no buyer yet…
    the designer not smart enough, the interior design look low quality , and also make the space look smaller…. this is just my opinion, hope not offence any buyer of Plumeria…..

  102. Jade

    July 1st, 2011 at 08:18 | #104

    Ya, because developer are constructing the Giant SuperSemiD now which initial plan is for phase 2…Actually I’m waiting the road to be ready then go to visit there again, now is kind of messy there…

  105. Max
    July 1st, 2011 at 11:00 | #105

    don’t know why they rushing the Giant Super Semi-D project now as Phase 1 houses are not even completed….especially the Super Semi-D and Bungalow…

    I visited the show house again yesterday. The glass door in master bedroom washroom was smashed….

    now, keeping my fingers crossed as waiting for my loan approval…hehe…

  106. Jade
    July 2nd, 2011 at 14:58 | #106

    which show house u visited? the giant semi D ? why is it giant semi D? from the brochure it looks same size like the super semi D ?

  107. Max
    July 2nd, 2011 at 16:27 | #107

    the land size is alot bigger than the current Super Semi-D…
    This new Semi-D is still under construction, no show house unit available yet.

  108. Jade
    July 3rd, 2011 at 21:15 | #108

    dear all, since bungalow price increased so much, what is the market price now for the plumeria and anthurium? :)

  109. Max
    July 3rd, 2011 at 21:31 | #109

    I’m not sure about the Plumeria prices and it only left with 2 corner yet ‘cut-off’ units…
    same for Anthurium. Last 2 Corner units with 570k and 620k…
    Normal price for Anthurium is 530k??

    I have a Map showing all new houses for BM location and BM Permai didn’t even advertising these 2 models now…
    but Viola Garden is priced at 688k!! wow!

  110. M
    July 4th, 2011 at 16:49 | #110

    I went to take a look yesterday, like the Heliconia any idea of prices & availability as cannot get through sales office? Comparing with Bayu Villas which is much cheaper and undone units I feel is already “move in” quality. Cons there is low land near river while here did I hear there are telekom towers.. Else location here no complaints.

  111. Max
    July 6th, 2011 at 10:43 | #111

    I visited the show house on the day you were there too.
    I already booked on the Heliconia, now pending loan approval.
    Price is RM658k, sold around 70%.
    You may call to the office to enquiry further.

  112. M
    July 6th, 2011 at 17:31 | #112

    Thanks Max.. do you know when OC will be obtained and is PBB their panel bank?

  113. Max
    July 6th, 2011 at 20:39 | #113

    According to their office, OC will be obtained end of this year.
    May I know why you want to know which banks is their panel?
    They absorb all the Lawyer and Banker fees. So, you only need to pay for the house price itself, no other fees needed. But i’m not sure if they are still offering the same now…

  114. M
    July 7th, 2011 at 09:55 | #114

    Thanks… you mean S&P also.. that’s very good as lawyer & banker fees little compare with S&P & loan stamping fees. No lah, just that we each have our favourite bank right? :)

  115. Max
    July 7th, 2011 at 10:31 | #115

    Yes, S&P also included, all the fees are included.
    If you visit their sales gallery office which is located at the site, they have all those banker loan officers name cards….and if i’m not mistaken, PBB is one of them…
    and i’m applying PBB too :)

    Just back from there today.. messier than before 1 lane but can go in. Just saw the telekoms tower.. anybody concerned? Will explained why Alpina bungalows move to phase 2 and nearer Heliconia all not taken up. Still a lot of super semi-D Viola gardens available 700k+

  119. Jade
    July 12th, 2011 at 08:59 | #119

    I think the price is way too high for the viola garden. The developer may take longer time to sell. After purchased then only I realized the communication tower, too late to do anything…

  120. mm
    July 12th, 2011 at 09:46 | #120

    I did read article regarding comminucation tower radiation. Mostly mention that it is safer than handphone. Anyone know how far is the tower to the nearest house by metres? I do believe that tower is not tat big concern. Besides, I did notice some housing estate also have tower around. Some even more nearer.

  121. Jade
    July 12th, 2011 at 20:47 | #121

    Hopefully later when the area fully developed, the tower will be remove.

    plumeria garden still have 2lots 10 & 11 havent sold out yet, the price also not so high. Do any one know that why no body going to buy this two units? corner house and smaller? any other problem like feng shui problem?

  125. Max
    July 21st, 2011 at 10:50 | #125

    why this thread being so quiet recently?

    Ivan, regarding the 2lots left down in Plumeria, yes, it’s ‘cut-off’ at the corner of the house. So, it’s smaller. I think the price is negotiable becoz of this.

    My loan just get approval! yeehaaa….

  126. T
    July 22nd, 2011 at 15:52 | #126

    Saw in some website, got people selling the terrace for 375k with nego a bit.

    i think after add in additional documentation cost, may not be that price anymore.

  127. OM
    July 22nd, 2011 at 16:59 | #127

    I think if the corner house is cheaper, may be we can use the money to renovate at the cut-off area. Remove the small room and make the kitchen looks bigger.. 😛
    Just wonder why the designer never think about the cut-off area and still use the same layout design on the cut-off house… :S
    Can’t wait to get the house key now…..

  128. Max

  130. Jade
    July 25th, 2011 at 23:11 | #130

    i went to the site last week, they are working on the giant semiD, and the underground cable. Those units with gate are all locked. Dropped by the office too, the agent told OC may be obtain in october, but i doubt it.

  131. Max
    July 26th, 2011 at 17:48 | #131

    I went today noon. The progress on the Bungalow is quite slow as they are working on the new Semi-D. Terrace left 1 unit only. OC expected end of year….probably December I was told. Saw people enquiry about the bungalow, seems high chances of buying :)

  132. CS
    July 27th, 2011 at 22:13 | #132

    anyone know when is the phase 2 semi-detached going to launch?

  133. T
    July 27th, 2011 at 22:23 | #133

    The width of the road look kind of narrow, or should i say the compound after gate is just probably 3~5ft. Making the bungalow look not so nice.

  134. CS
    July 27th, 2011 at 22:34 | #134

    Heliconia bungalow car porch is not big ~ 20ft. put big car like BMW will make the house look even not nice. Car porch should be at least 25ft.

  135. Max
    July 28th, 2011 at 11:00 | #135

    @CS, yes I agree that the car porch is not big enough.
    and the length is limited too…
    but with that price and location, can’t expect much. If the land is wider and longer….the price is definitely not within that range…

  136. M
    July 29th, 2011 at 18:26 | #136

    Anybody check the communication tower is functioning? Else, no hope of removal unless all residents complaint. Wonder if developer doing anything else hard to sell units nearby.

  137. Jade
    July 30th, 2011 at 09:52 | #137

    The communication tower is required approval license with MPSP. The license is given for certain time frame(e.g. 1 or 3 years or more).
    Once license expire plus people complaint, it will be removed by MPSP.
    I think developer will files complaint to MPSP as seeing the units closed to that tower cannot sold.

  138. T
    August 2nd, 2011 at 13:47 | #138

    August 9th, 2011 at 17:31 | #143

    ya.. it’s a bus stop. regarding unit left: super semi-D still have 7 units(price from 670k till 720k) and bangalow units still left 17units (price is 658k).. so don’t worry…it still have more units for you to choose if you’re interested to this phase 1 project. :-).

    August 26th, 2011 at 12:28 | #147

    Developer focus on Bungalo unit at BM permai which i think is hard to sale…
    if BM permai focus more on terrace and SemiD then will be selling like hot cake.

  148. Max
    August 26th, 2011 at 13:00 | #148

    The banglo price which is at 658k now is very very expensive lor…just visited the show house, i think the buyer need to spend another 50k at least in order to change the staircase, staircase’s holder, bath room’s wall tiles, all bedroom’s laminated timber floor as the quality looks very poor to me…. it will be very hard to sell out this banglo unit if developer not give any promotion/discount on the house’s price lor… u can see it still left lot of the units now…

  156. Max
    September 3rd, 2011 at 19:07 | #156

    k9, how much is the banglo now? They increase the price?
    The staircase is the the same for all types they build, which is the normal & basic style. Of course they won’t provide you the fully glass/stainless steel staircase, like the one in show house. So does the laminated timber floor, I think Semi-D and terrace bedrooms are using the same too….correct me if i’m wrong on this.

  157. Max

    Regarding the bath room’s wall tiles, i don’t see any problem with it…at least they provide every single bathroom with full height wall tiles which other developer doesn’t provide…

  158. thunder
    September 3rd, 2011 at 22:45 | #158

    go and take a look on the BM utama project by DNP.. they provide better quality material, like staircase, bathroom tiles and etc…

  159. Max
    September 3rd, 2011 at 23:40 | #159

    I will never, never buy DNP Houses….as I’m currently staying one…

  160. k9
    September 4th, 2011 at 10:54 | #160

    The banglo price now is 658k. Personally i don’t think they will increase the price cause now still left more units there. Besides, the banglo units looks very near to telecommunication tower and the standard extra land for banglo at both site of it is at around 5 to 6fts only which make the banglo units looks not so luxurious. You’re right on the laminated timber floor, semi-D or super semi-D are using the same materials…for the bath rooms, the wall tiles that they’re provided is in plain white color which looks normal only…

    just curious when you said you’ll never never buy DNP houses..can you share the reason?

  161. Max
    September 4th, 2011 at 14:54 | #161

    I’ve checked and did some research, the telecommunication tower is in safe range, so it’s not a problem here. If you checked earlier reply, someone did mention on this too.
    Ya, definitely this is a mini bungalow. It’s not the luxurious type, and at this price, you can’t expect much. If you look at their other project at Alma, those luxurious type bungalows priced from RM880k and above….

    to be frank, I visited and considered all nearby projects before I made my decision earlier, but I didn’t even visited BM Utama…
    It’s from DNP, Over-Priced and the land currently the new houses siting on was previously a swamp…a huge swamp, which my current house is…..

  162. mm
    September 4th, 2011 at 15:37 | #162

    I have to agree with Max, i doubt that DNP provide better quality, further more BM utama using sand bricks & overpriced. They workmanship is lousy as i mentioned it before. You can simply go and check their previous projects.good example is taman bukit minyak indah.
    If BM Utama is sitting on Swamp area…then the posibilty of sinking is high.
    Even the sales person in BM Utama is LC.

  163. k9
    September 4th, 2011 at 16:04 | #163

    Ya. You’re right on this is a mini banglo :-) .. i think if developer can give more quality materials such as on the staircase,its holder, laminated timber floor and so on, then it is worthy. Otherwise, the buyer still need to change those poor quality materials before move in, and this will produce additional costs to the buyer later on…unless the buyers are not choosy on the poor materials that gave by the developer… :-)

  164. coco
    September 4th, 2011 at 20:47 | #164

    guys, those who are planning to stay in BM Permai need to watch out for the plaster ceiling company is just beside the terrace house they are suppose to vacate it ,they are operating illegally, residence are prone to get cancer especially childrens their immune system are weak i wonder how they can operate at resident’s area……….must have bribe mpsp i think!!!!!!

  165. stef
    September 4th, 2011 at 21:54 | #165

    but this BM Permai is using red bricks which is more expensive than sand bricks. changing the small stuffs are far more cheaper & easier than the bricks lel … well, just a two cents of mine.

  166. k9
    September 5th, 2011 at 13:37 | #166

    Ya, no doubt that red bricks better than sand bricks. I will depend on your budget and also on whether you’re choosy or not on the given materials…. :-) … If you go to see its staircase, its holder and laminated timber floor, then you might feel the same as me –> poor materials and might need to change when move in…that small stuffs will really costly too … 😉

    i think there is other consideration also in term of land size, design, ceiling height, balcony. I don’t think there is one design who can fulfill everyone’s requirement.

    Went check out the Jesellton hill design, their stair case holder is much better design vs BM Permai. It actually make the stair case looks much wider.

    But i know some prefer timber floor as well…. especially old folks.

  169. T
    September 5th, 2011 at 15:47 | #169

    Some think ceiling height is very important, but some think ceiling height will mean more $$$ for air con…..

    If Ceiling height of the car poach is too high, when raining heavily you will be wet if you stand in the middle of the car poach.

    More mirror mean brighter interior, but it also mean more $$$ for air con and grills.

  170. Max
    September 5th, 2011 at 19:10 | #170

    Actually, no offence, but I dun understand why you guys keep picking on it’s “Staircase & Holder”…LOL….it’s like only 5% of the whole house…my 2 cents. :)

    @T, you mean old folks prefer these kind of laminated timber floor?? I thought young generations?….I dunno but if you visit the high-end banglo in penang island, they are all using this kind of floor instead of tiles…

  171. T
    September 5th, 2011 at 20:50 | #171

    I think K9 is just trying to get most of what he paid. Unfortunately that is usually not the case.

    Anyway i prefer timber floor than tiles, but usually tiles will have less maintenance vs tiles.

  172. k9
    September 5th, 2011 at 21:13 | #172

    i preferred timber floor too but unfortunately the given timber floor’s material by developer is very poor one…

    As a buyer, i think everything given by developer should be counted. If developer given lousy or poor materials, that is meaning that the buyer may need to spend $$$$ to repair or change it later on. Unless the buyer are rich enough and $$$$ is not a problem for them, then that is different story.. 😉 But this banglo unit are not cheap tough, so developer should give better and quality materials…

  173. mm
    September 6th, 2011 at 12:40 | #173

    once again agree with Max. Staircase and holder can change & i actually prefer timber floor.
    one more very important point…house build using clay/red bricks is actually cooler compare to sand bricks.

    anyhow…no one is perfect…so far i heard more bad comments on DNP projects compare to WHH…

  174. storm
    September 6th, 2011 at 14:59 | #174

    agree with K9. Most of the given materials looks no quality except the red bricks, even the doors – front/back/bedroom’s door also in poor quality. For the potential buyer that plan to buy it, suggest go and c it by urself first.

  175. Jade
    September 6th, 2011 at 22:49 | #175

    actually nobody forcing anybody to buy bm permai houses…. i believe those buyers have done their survey before buying the property, and now complaining also useless. On the other hands, those who have not buy the property but keep on comment bad things about the developer, maybe trying to give bad impression about the project/ developer.

  176. Jade
    September 6th, 2011 at 22:54 | #176

    every developer also try to make big money, do you think other developers will give money worth material? look at those project in penang island….. far more expensive than bm permai, but what u will get? they wont provide kitchen top like bm permai, just a sink will you get. even IJM such a good developer, also got so many complaints on their project. So, i feel that it’s difficult to suit everybody needs. You like it, you buy. If u don like it, you can choose other projects… :)

  177. J
    September 7th, 2011 at 12:47 | #177

    Yep. better buy IJM project. Their santuary permatang project going to launch end of this year. Located at Alma and Permatang tinggi, 400k-450k for semi-D, more cheaper than BM Permai, BM utama and Jesselton Hills.

  178. Misc
    September 7th, 2011 at 13:36 | #178

    If you are origin from BM folk, Alma lcoation will be best fit for you eventhough the price is expensive.
    If you are working person in island, of course you will choose to stay close to bridge.
    Just a common sense!!!
    The price of house is also justified by land area and build up area. simple math also can calculated that.
    Cheaper price of house also can be get in tambun or simpang empat or further.
    I feel houses over there more economical. :-)

    Semi-D cannot be RM400k, this indicative price was put in their website since last year and has not been changed. I expect it to be more expensive than Jesselton Hill if launched this year, because they will factor in IJM brand name.

    checked yesterday with IJM office, current price is 400k for linked semi-d while 450k for semi-d. Their sales agent said price should be the same during launch time since launch date will be in just 2 months from now. the land is clearing now. the price looks very attractive with its land plus build up size. Good to the buyer if have a competitor between developers. they also have a beautiful lanscaping if looks on the landscape picture that posted at ijmland web site – http://www.ijmland.com/our_projects/OurProject_Current.aspx?ProjectId=130

    you can call ijmland office to verify too :-)

    Thanks for the link. It’s been a while I haven’t check their website. They have updated the Permatang Sanctuary page. Seems like the launch is near!

    What is link semi-D? Is it cluster?

    The land size is quite big, I think should be bigger than Jesselton hill. Build-up is narrower but longer. Overall concept similar to Jesselton. If it really sells at RM400k (this price can only get 2ST with small land in BMU!), it will be a big hit!

    My advice to those working in Penang,if you don’t mind the traffic jam in that area you can consider buying. Currently the heavy traffic area are Bukit Minyak area, Bukit Tengah ,Juru Auto City and BM area.

    Using Tambun Tol is an alternative, or perhaps the future 2nd bridge.

    ya..it’s a cluster(build up 20, its buld up is smaller than normal semi-D, that’s why the price is 400k as for now. The normal semi-d price is 450k.

    You are right. The bigger land and build up area is always come with price.
    If both unit semi D with similar land size, but build up area(20×47~1880 sqft & 29×49~2800 sqft) with price 420k and 500k respectively.
    I would prefer choose the 500k as it worth the value.
    Of course, other factor may be part reason to justify the house value as well.
    It also based on personal need whether you want a bigger land or bigger build up area.

    just my opinion, wider is always better than longer… houses will look nicer and easier to design if the width is 22′ compare to 20′. nowadays mostly houses go with 22′. 20′ is those days size(may be 10 yrs ago).

OC will obtained end of the year. Phase 2 launching beginning of next year, which is after the phase 1 OC obtained.

    Anthurium semi D, left 1 end corner unit. quite a number of bungalows have sold…… super semi D still have quite a number of units. they are rushing the super super semi D for phase 2, so that they can complete the tar road, and close the lorry and truck entrance before the office.

    I am looking for a nice place at the mainland but could not find one better than
    than Chain Ferry Road area. Easy excess to Penang (shorter distance) either
    by ferry or Penang Bridge. Anyone knows any other better place ?

    @ Penang, you can look for Bukit Tambun area. It is very close to Penang Bridge and 2nd link. If you want to know more, please drop me a mail @ pslimtjn@yahoo.com

    Yesterday, PM Permai sale person call me up, say starting from next week, all price will increase for 35K. Asking me to act fast if still interested buy a unit.
    Think a while, with the market and economy getting bad and NYSE and KLSE both suffer very bad drop ~5-10%, buy year end may drop below 1000 composit index. I doubt that the developer still can increase the price. They may increase then give discount to new buyer. This is the trick for most developer. I still choose to look and see.
    Remember, now day, cash is King. We better spend it wisely.

    @BM Permai’s Bunglo buyers:

    The big tinted glass wall at the stairclass looks very beautiful design but it might create security issues too as this taman not in a gated & guarded. if you plan to place a grill to protect it from thieves, then your banglo will look like a jail, not nice anymore…so anyone have ideas on how to deal with that big tinted glass wall?

    if you’re not planning to mount it with grill, and just plan to leave it as is it and plan to have alarm or cctv or bela dogs to protect your house’s security, then that is different story i think :-) .. sometimes placing alarm, cctv or bela big dogs not enough to make your house safer…

    So how to settle that big and nice look tinted window? ideas pls?

    You can change the glass to 1/2 inch industrial grade glass. It is very safe and bullet proof :) but iti is expensive. I knew someone did that

    September 25th, 2011 at 20:46 | #196

    any ideas what will be the price per sqft for that 1/2 inchi bullet proof glass?

  197. pghome
    September 26th, 2011 at 01:25 | #197

    Really sorry, I’m not very sorry. By the way, it should be at least 3/4 inch in order to be bullet proof. And it is not a normal glass.

    Or you can use the 1/2 inch glass which used by bank. It should be thick enough. Although it is not bullet proof, but I don’t think anyone would want to break it to go into the house. Cutting grill can be easier than breaking a 1/2 inch laminated glass.

    By the way, you may want to try this (http://www.securityfilm.biz), i think you can find the installer here in Penang.

    I’m going this Wednesday. Will update everyone on the progress here. :)

    T1, are you the owner of the bunglo too?

    Actually a guard house and a guard can be arranged in the entrance of 2nd row and 3rd row of the bunglo area. My 2 cents.
    From what I know, nowadays, many residents hire the guard and build the guard house on their own. As long as all related residents chips in some money….
