    How good if I’m the owner of the project :) But I’m not owner, not developer, not agent… I’m just a typical person who follow properties in Penang :)

    Jalan Baru area also only 540k although not gated. i think Alma area a bit overprice. if you saying spacious, i think it is just normal.

    Property in mainland are typically less speculative. You may not earn a lot, but if you choose a nice unit (eg. corner, nice number and etc.), you can also make good profit.

    There will always a buyer, but the most important is how you can make the buyer choose your unit and pay a higher premium for it.

    Just my personal opinion :)

    let alone the house space. How about others advantages and disadvantages of this project.
    1.) a new and promising township
    2.) better landscape design

    1.) pricy
    2.) near to small factory

    Pls add on and comment.

    i don’t know much about the project, but one thing i can comment is it is far away from the main road. Not so convenient and you need to pass a mosque to reach there. Not sure about other road to reach there or not…..

    good luck to the investor…

    1.) a new and promising township
    2.) better landscape design
    3.) Comes with 5 bedrooms

    1.) pricy
    2.) near to small factory
    3.) A bit far if working in Island

    there are a few roads to reach there without passing the mosque, by using the roads in others housing areas (taman impian and taman selamat)

    Report from the star states that there is going to have more than 1000 trees to be planted to that place. Make sure DNP stick to what they say and hopelly that the tree is big tree and not small plant. I have seen the landscape a promising project

    i was at the office 2 weeks ago and yesterday. I see still got alot of unit available maybe top expensive. The sales told me that showhouse going to be ready soon. I think that is when the house will start to sell. I think i am going to book

    The mosque – I do not see any problem why should ppl avoid the mosque road. It is a wide and well maintain road. The only problem should be on Friday prayers time.

    Far from Mainroad – Well, if you feel that BM Utama is OK, I do not see alma is a problem as it is just another 5 minutes drive and hey! the flyover is almost completed.

    Price – I have to admit that the price is too high but…… if the plan is good i do not see any problem not to invest to it. Imagine this, recreation park with manmade lake with just a walking distance and there is planned 4 of them. Guarded, I read this on the newspaper also, either DNP going to make it happen or not. I was also told that there will be a clubhouse available.

    Alma – Latest selling point is Tesco and some high end shop lots set to be build surrounding it. I am not sure if there will be somore GREAT shopping mall going to open there since middle income group resides. However, I also see alot of abandon shopping malls (2 of them) along the road…..

    Bottom line, I think DNP have place a vision for this project and they do pump money to make it happen. Something like Jesselton Penang?

    Hi all, this is great that everyone can discuss on the project. A good analysis and it is so in detail. I am looking for dream house at surrounding area. Have been went to DNP and BM Permai to make comparison. I also worry about the guarded can be maintain or not.. this is my main concern.

    This project looks promising. May be you can check with them to see if there is any kind of guarantee that they will give as part of the sales and purchase agreement.

    I went to the sales office at bm utama months ago and saw this project. I was there initially for bm utama but was dissapointed that phase 3 house are more costly and smaller (40X22). Jesselton project seems to be very attractive based from the actual plan they have there but again VERY costly. I was at the site 2 days ago and they seems to start building the showhouse. Donno when can complete. The layout is actually the same as the new semi D in bm utama (phase 2). Dnp are good developer, maybe i will book as there is no other developer do things like they do. Only problem is very far deep ALMA

    May 6th, 2011 at 01:14 | #18

    it’s over price in Alma.. .. i been to the site 3 weeks ago… ….. frankly speaking… i will rather get BM utama than this area… ….

  19. Grace
    May 6th, 2011 at 13:09 | #19

    but Bm Utama not much of a choice left and not worth it unless u r the initial buyer….semi D only 338K 3 years ago

    i was at the office a few days ago. Looks like they have almost sold all unit except for bumi lots. I like the design of the house. The bigger limited unit is very good but they did not tell me full detail. I think this is guarded, outsider still can go in. I have concern as i see lot of messy houses beside jesselton. Unless they put a wall, this could change alot

    July 7th, 2011 at 15:01 | #25

    alma will be very boom coming 3-5yrs
    with new aeon shooping mall, ICH opening, coming up new residence spread over 100 acres by ijm -Permatang Sanctuary…

  26. joan
    July 7th, 2011 at 20:20 | #26

    Here is my comment
    1. aeon shopping mall at alma when there is already 1 at perda?
    2. tesco is nearby
    3. even with the roads widen, the distance to alma area is still out of the 1st or 2nd bridge plan
    4. the success of DNP project will depend very much on ICH. If ICH is successful, alma will BOOM
    5. again, ICH must be managed properly by DNP. I understand that it is not a managed shoplot rather independent
    6. the federal road near permatang sanctuary must be widen/ expanded
    7. the T junction near the abbandon factory is going to be a problem
    8. no good school nearby
    9. need more middle income group to stay there
    10. factory scattered almost everywhere

    wah lao! looks like housing prices in alma is rising! Farnie…. i ask bank to value my semiD house nearby but only valued at 330K nya~! Now got house priced at 770K at alma woh! so far i got increment only 7% which is highest in my office …but house price raise by so much!

  34. mimi
    August 25th, 2011 at 16:46 | #34

    not sure what DNP are providing but i do think that they are really commiting to provide exclusive living environment for alma projects. Nothing to lose, just go there and see coming weekend. See what they offer is valued by the price that we are paying for. The conclusion from this will justify the pricing.

    we cannot compare our pay with property price. As understood, the penang island houses have raise for almost 50% in short 3-4 years time. Mainland still have alot of land if compared… it will depend on the package that DNP provide. Again Alma is very far away from the rest……..

  35. BD
    August 25th, 2011 at 18:33 | #35

    WTF! 588k! 6 months ago 502k already think it’s quite high price… Those who book early must be laughing! I guess it’s Tesco+Jusco+ICH factor.

    September 2nd, 2011 at 14:57 | #39

    I would like to acknowledge that this is a very premium housing…..for investment purpose, we cannot tolerate any imperfection, as we are paying at least 15% premium to the house.

    RM588K, early bird deduct RM15,000 = RM573,000. ( inclusive of legal fees for S&P and loan, stamping fees for land office worth =RM10K, stamping fees for loan =RM3K), so the actual price ~ RM560K. the nearby SemiD ( RM528K/RM538K/RM440K/RM500++)

  40. k9
    September 4th, 2011 at 16:20 | #40

    The type A semi-D which sell at 588k-15k looks very very expensive !!! the location is in Alma which is very far from penang bridge….. if considered on its location + its build up, it’s not matching the house price too even after discounted 15k.. if you’re working in island and plan to buy it, you better consider on the drive hours that you need to take from Jesselton Hill to your office in island .. you might need to wake up on 5.00am every moning to aviod the traffic jam plus long distance driving.. :-)

    September 4th, 2011 at 17:36 | #41

    I stay in Alma area, depart from my house around 7am-710am, drive thru Jln Song Ban Kheng, Jalan Baru Prai to Pg Bridge, and can reach Georgetown area (near Gurney drive) or Bayan Baru roundabout before 8am.

    September 4th, 2011 at 19:31 | #42

    @BD How fast you driving ? Just take 1 hour can reach penang …bayan baru and gurney drive ? It is unbelievable even though I stay at taman desa damai also can’t reach gurney drive within 1 hour…..

    September 4th, 2011 at 19:56 | #43

    i stayed at bukit minyak and work in bayan lepas…normally if not jam, i need to take around 1 hour to arrive at bayan lepas FIZ… i believe if drive from Alma to bayan lepas, at least need around 1 hour 40 mins due to traffic jams at jalan song ban kheng or take kota permai’s route to bukit minyak’s new Carrefour… i don’t think 1 hour can arrive Bayan Baru if from Alma. You should be speeding i think :-)

    I stay in Bayu Mutiara and during 1 and 2 Sep which most of people still on holiday, it took me 20min to reach Intel Agilent trafic light and I drove all the way 110km/h. If normal working day, out at 7.10am reach same location 8am. BD must be flying.

  45. frogprince
    September 4th, 2011 at 21:13 | #45

    I drive from Bukit Tengah and typically it takes 40 minutes to reach FIZ on a normal working day. Most of the time is on the bridge.

    Hi, I’m from KL, will be working in PG FIZ starting from Oct. I am planning to purchase a landed property on mainland for a stay wif my family. I had visited Jesselton Hill Type A semiD show house last week. From layout the house looks quite spacious, but somehow when i visited the showhs it seems to be not as big as i expected. The interior renovation was awesome, but i dont really like the house exterior design:( I love the guarded+greenary concept with various facilities. But too bad it is not a gated residency.

    My concern here is how long will it takes to travel AlmaFIZ on usual working day during peak hr? I heard bkt minyak can be vr jam in the morn and evening. It would be good to have a time rating on best,normal and worse case on the travelling time. Please advice.
    Please advice.thanks.

  47. JC
    September 4th, 2011 at 22:10 | #47

    i am staying near bayu mutiara. during super smooth time i can reach home within 30 min from FTZ. usual traffic is about 45 min to 1 hour. if super jam time nearly 2 hours just can reach home. i predict it would take another half hour to 1 hour to reach jesselton from bayu mutiara if during usual traffic. during smooth time i think 20 min should be no problem.

  48. FOTILE
    September 4th, 2011 at 22:45 | #48

    Wow, in short i assumed travelling time between FIZ and Alma,
    Best case: 45-50min
    Normal: 1hr15min- 1hr40min
    Worse case:2hr++ :(

    Usually how long will it take to travel through the bridge?I assume traffic at NS highway towards South should be smooth right? I get to know from some other forum that alot cars are heading towards north after exit from bridge. Not sure how true is tat.

    Why don’t you go see some landed property in Simpang Empat (pearl villas or pearl garden) there, They got guarded+greenary concept with various facilities which you prefer.

  51. JC
    September 5th, 2011 at 08:12 | #51

    if u wish to work at FTZ it is not recommended to stay Alma. If u stay Alma i think suitable to work at bukit minyak area, or prai industry. perhaps u can consider tambun area where near the 2nd bridge. u will gone mad if it is traffic jam on the bridge everyday.

  52. BD
    September 5th, 2011 at 08:31 | #52

    What I tell is truth. From Jesselton to my house may be need another 5-10 mins. I do not drive slow, at bridge about 90-100kmh. I don’t cut queue illegally or run a red light. Have to be wise to choose the correct lane when traffic slow.

    The route I choose is: Thru Tmn Alma to Kg Baru to Jln SBK, first slight jam encountered at the bridge at Sg Rambai (wait for traffic light about <5min only). Then to Bkt Tengah roundabout (I don't pass thru Bayu Mutiara & Autocity as the jam there sometimes can be terrible and the traffic light stop is so long). From Jln Baru Prai to enter Pg bridge is quite smooth until near after the middle of the bridge where the jam is at the bottle neck at Lim Chong Eu expressway. Can reach Bayan Baru roundabout in 1 hour, unless special circumstances occur.

  53. BD
    September 5th, 2011 at 08:44 | #53

    What I want to tell is that u don’t need to wake up at 5am to go to work in FIZ, unless u need to make up for 1.5 hours :) However, Alma is definitely far away and for those who dislike travel then should stay elsewhere.

    In the time when Jesselton obtain OC, a lot of things can change. The construction of flyovers over the rail road at Pmtg Tinggi & Alma may have finished. So Jesselton residents can drive without much jam to Tambun Tol or use the 2nd brigde to FIZ. The route is longer but faster.

    The widening of Jln SBK to 2 lane whole stretch may have been done, so traffic more smooth. Lastly, the solution of bottle neck area at LCE expressway near bridge Bayan Lepas exit may at least save us some minutes.

    Hi. If u wish to move in the new house faster, like D24 said, can consider Pearl Villa. It has the features u want (green, G&G, facility), relatively cheaper and better connected to both Pg bridges.

  55. FOTILE
    September 5th, 2011 at 10:45 | #55

    Hi, thanks for the advises. Maybe i should pay a visit to Pearl Villa show hs in the next few weeks time. I guess is better for me to compare b4 i make my decision.

    Is there any other proj that u would recomend to those who works in PG FIZ?

  56. BD
    September 5th, 2011 at 11:35 | #56

    I think u should decide which part of mainland u prefer to stay – Butterworth/Prai/Sbrg jaya, BM/Juru/Alma or Spg Ampat/Tambun area. There are too many to consider, either new launch or subsale…

  57. k9
    September 5th, 2011 at 13:18 | #57

    i would suggest you take one day off on weekday and then try driving from Alma(Jesselton Hills) to Bayan lepas on morning time(around 7am), then you can estimate the arrival time. Besides you can feel the Alma/BM traffic too :-) … for pearl villas, i heard there got lot of flies as near there got chicken farm….u can try read ppl’s comments on pearl villas(at tambun) inside this blog too..

    Alma indeed is a nice and going to very develop soon, but it is still a bit far from everywhere,
    unless you are working in Almalah…
    I am considering Taman Jambu Madu and Bukit Tengah area.

    Glad to have found this forum and thanks for all opinion. It’ll be great if somebody can enlighten me on my dilemma. Currently in between of choosing Jesselton or Juru area. Have visited Jesselton at least 3 times into all showhouses and kinda satisfied with the built and quality. Problem arise when I visited Juru Residency@Cendana. The bungalows are almost same price with Jesselton, which is only semi-d. Any advise will be much appreciated.

    Am looking a house which can fit a family of 8. Have been living in Sri Kijang for a decade and more. Any location in BM is only a 2nd priority.

    @ Wenn, Taman Seri Murai, centro park Semi-D with LA: 4532 sqft, BA: 2236sqft. It has >20ft garden. The developer extends the phase 2 project with limited units only. To me, it is very strategic location.

I love the place alot but only that I am worried on the old houses beside jesselton. Before I decide, i want to see any other potential place around BM area with the same concept and budget.

    I went to the showroom weeks ago. The showroom was filled with flies and some smell also. I was at my friend’s open house at bandar tasik mutiara house years ago. The flies problem is very serious with the food serve also have flies. I do think that there is a chicken farm nearby BTM and even nearer/ next to PearlVilla. Back to Jesselton, i do find some flies there also (a few). Is there a chicken farm nearby? (can any locals help to respond)

  71. WL
    September 29th, 2011 at 16:22 | #71

    I do heard some locals people talking about the smell at there, it is released from the small factory outside there (eg: Ayamas factory, rubber glove factory and etc). Some of my friend is staying in budiman said so. For the flies issues, i dont think got any chicken farm surrounding here. @Karen

  72. KH
    September 29th, 2011 at 21:27 | #72

    According to my info, there is confirm have either Chicken Farm or Pig Farm just near by the Pearl Villa; Garden & Indah …

    Boon Beng Primary School similar Extremely Worst Condition !!! I think the kid study there cant concentrete their mind to study …
    Bcoz too many flies “Ee Ee Oo Oo” keep flying here and there …

    So … God Bless them who have so excited Quick Quick Clean Sweep bought the houses @ Pearl … I think their house door & window need to close “24 Hours a Day, 7 Day a Week” liao lah …

    Unless they like and enjoy flies to accompany their daily living life and they extremely like the “Wonderful Shit Smell” … Ha ha ha …

    I oso notice the Jesselton Hill Open House oso got many flies, I ask DNP Y, they told me they use shit as a fertilizer to plant the surrounding garden flower …

    Dun noe is it true statement or not …

    How the selling status now? Also All have been Clean Sweep by the buyers?
    On 28 Aug 2011, they told me Promotion is -20K … Now?

    KH :Be reminded that “Pearl Villa; Garden; Indah” area have many many many flies, further more got extremely wonderful shit smell, dun noe whether Chic or Pig … Go to experience urself … Ha ha ha …
    @ Seaan Lim, u mentioned Taman Seri Murai, centro park Semi-D with LA: 4532 sqft, BA: 2236sqft. It has >20ft garden. The developer extends the phase 2 project with limited units only. To me, it is very strategic location.
    Is it Freehold? How much?

    @KH, it is freehold and going to start construction end of year. This is my brother project. If you are interested, please call me at 0124918298. I have one subsales unit in same taman, 3 story Terrace (original unit come with 3 phase power supply, car porch with inprint concrete cement, etc). Do let me know. Thanks

    That is the problem with the properties in penang state. A lot of small project own by small developer making town planning not organized with factories, pig farm, chicken farm, whatever farm just set next to the residence. Jesselton/ DNP is what I find have most of the potential having developed a township at Alma instead of building just houses. This causes most of the property here sold initially (usually happen to small developer) but later sold by their relatives. I agree that Alma is far away but at least there is so plan by developer with government to build infrastructures.

    If you have read some real estate articles, a good property need a good developer with strong financial background and big project plan. Even that the property is at an isolated location, infrastructure/ township prices will increase eventually.

    I’ve been to a house in Impian Ria before, there are quite a lot of flies, but no smell. If you look at wikimap/google map, there are lots of long zinc roof buildings east to Jesselton & Desa Impian, are they the chicken farms?

    Actually every taman also got its official malay name. You will see that in your PBA bill. But people may continue to call it Jesselton hills.

    For example, do you know where is Taman Pulau Mutiara? It is Setia Pearl Island official malay name :)

    December 3rd, 2011 at 20:04 | #92

    Just visited the show house. My gosh… can say.. it is almost perfect! With the future developments on the flyover and Jln SBK road widening and all that… Uncle can go to Batu Maung (where I work) quite easily… especially after the 2nd bridge is completed.

    about 50% is sold… the offer is still RM588k – RM15k. The only thing extra you need to pay is the loan agreement legal fees. Also, bear in mind it’s NOT a gated and guarded project, with pros and cons:

    – You get individual title instead of strata title
    – No need to pay maintenance fee for the facilities

    – After 2 years the security ronda-ronda service will not be paid by DNP Land, which means the residents of Jesselton Hills need to form a Residents Association and get some form of security. (hire Rela guards? LOL)
    – If you’re not a member of the club house, you don’t get to enjoy the club house facilities (e.g. pool, gym dan sebagainya)

    – If you’re not a member of the club house, you don’t get to enjoy the club house facilities (e.g. pool, gym dan sebagainya)”.

    Even after 2 years you are not the member for the facilities, you still can choose to pay the fee in order to enjoy the facilities. As Uncle Hoo say it has pro & con, you no need to pay extra $$ for monthly maintenance fee which might be increase year by year.

    Question: Jesselton vs Permatang Sanctuary – which one more worth to buy ?

  108. Unc Lim
    December 14th, 2011 at 08:35 | #108

    Jesselton vs Permatang Sanctuary
    1. Both are from a well established developer
    2. Location to new bridge. Nearer for PS
    3. Location to BM town. Nearer for J
    4. Concept can be seen for J but not for PS yet. Again do not get fooled, the layout by J is abit exaggerate
    5. PS offer cluster house with the price of semiD and J offer full semiD with shortest porch in BM
    6. Build quality. DNP are well known for build quality but not IJM.

    Jesselton is actually known as Taman Jasa Indah. This was only known during S&P signing. My good friend from Sabah was force to sign since he fly in all the way. I do not think that Permatang Sanctuary will be the same as well.

  114. KJ
    December 18th, 2011 at 22:35 | #114

    Well…… own stay …..
    For investment, i will come back to island again in future. (of cos… everyone definitely dreamt of buying Mah Sing project at Batu Maung there….. beautiful… have you seen it?)
    Basically tak boleh tahan la penang. After Lim Guan Eng came in, wahsehhhh i cannot catch up with penang progress… its too fast already. Every where also developed!!! More and more newbies developer are coming in….. Since this development are pushing the land price to up, got no choice lohhh…. i also want to survey kaw kaw before buy but no time la… super busy…
    the more i survey, the more the land price go up….whats the point? Unless if we are filthy rich….. there goes your house price too… but basically the floor plan, location, surrounding, future development are meeting my basic requirements… and many factors are contributing to Jesselton price increments in future… i have seen it.
    I bought SemiD…. tot of buying 2.5 storey SD. Sold out. (was wandering what can i do with too many rooms? Ghost? Haha) …. The Kensington there also damn nice projects…. but too bad.. its too near to railway already… at nite… tot tot tot tot….hahahah
    By the way, i dont see any flies nor any smells as mentioned above. No chicks farm….sorry i mean chicken farm. Backyard facing 2 mountains surrounded by palm oil…. kind of cool fengshui there… but luckily no palm oil refinery… otherwise i gonna burn them. Anyway, im predicting the palm oil will be cleared in 3 years time. Trees are too old, soil are screwed!….
    The front house are too old…. nehhhh i wouldnt be worried of that..someone will do something on that.(lets hope those rich folks staying at Jesselton Bungalows will do something….hahah)… as long as they dont remove the blue barricade there….
    And I dont know why DNP dont study abit on the FengShui… i dont want to mentioned… but those who know… definitely got me..anyway, be positive… we can always add in something to compensate something…..
    Those who havent bought one…. go grab one…

    I’d rather buy properties at Seberang Jaya, Butterworth, Prai or Bukit Tengah rather than buying at BM(dead town). You guys gonna stuck at a massive traffic jam once you buy a property in BM. I feel that logically and practically it is pointless to buy properties in BM if any one of you is travelling to work out of BM!

  120. uncle tan
    February 28th, 2012 at 13:38 | #120

    Please do not write for the sake of writing. BM is not dead but packed. If you were to see properly or rather think deeply the location have potential having 2 exit which allow 2 choice of bridge (when the 2nd ones are ready)

    If it is dead, why would all the developer starts to look for land there and new development. What matters is the plan that they have… have u been and seen alma? I foresee some progress there.

    Not saying that SJ are not good but the price is not realistic plus the quality of life and house you are getting.

    BD , I just notice that there are few building processing something next to Jesselton. You got any idea what is the Orange/yellow color building doing? So far, there are some fabric textile, gloves, full cream powder factory nearby. Ohh yeah, some metal factory too. But im interested to know on the orange color building. There is no company name. And wikimapia showing ayamas building. Is this true? And middle of the palm oil estate are having some activities going on there. Not sure what is that….. is there any palm oil refinery there?

  128. CK
    March 13th, 2012 at 19:10 | #128

    Too Bad. I paid legal fee already. It’s cost me around RM6K. :(

    Recently, i received a letter from developer. They imposed late payment penalty (3 days) on 10% of first drawdown of housing loan. I’m very irritated because this is beyond my controls and i have nothing to do with it.

    Thus, would like to ask who face this situation before and what will you do?

    I am thinking of:

    1) Ask lawyer to absorb the late payment penalty fee. ( Is it lawyer faults? What is the claiming of housing loan process?)
    2) Ask developer to waive my late penalty fee. (Is it possible, just 3 days late only)

    Appreciate for your advice and feedback.

  129. KJ
    March 16th, 2012 at 22:50 | #129

    You mean, you pay late after 30 days you received notice from developer to pay remaining 10%?
    Well….. lawyer mean business….they wont absorb losses.
    But developer are OK. You can just talk to lawyer to understand who situation and get lawyer to console developer and at same time you appeal to developer….. try it… might works.

    Hey ho,

    i bought a place 2 yrs back, alma ria, very close to jesselton hills. bought for RM260k now valued close to RM400k. really tempted to get one but not sure. there are bungalows behind alma ria, not as posh as JH but space wise, a lot larger and the rooms upstairs have separate bathrooms. huge rooms!.

    flies and smell? no complaints from my folks who lived there. initially, lots of flies due to the heat but don’t see them much. good neighbors around alma ria.

    the club membership is kind of putting me off. is membership opened to non-residents? if yes, then, kind of lame. expected the place to be gated but does not seem like it.

    good luck everyone

    June 13th, 2012 at 15:56 | #143

    There was no maintenance fee as JH was not under G&G concept. Owner can enjoy free facilities that provided by DNP for 2 years. After 2 years, owner decided want to continue or not. Of course, if continue, need to pay $$$

  144. JY

    Yes, I also concern about the Chicken Hills but after deep thought & survey, I’ve buy the unit there as so far I didnt smell any chicken shit especially raining time. If compare JH & Permatang Santuary, PS is more near to the chicken farm. There always have pro & con, you may choose a unit depend on your taste & financial $$$

  151. The Buyer
    June 28th, 2012 at 14:25 | #151

    No gated and guarded
    Can be improved or applied if the residence are united and wanted to have a safe with private residence. What DNP have tried to do is to include facilities and even a tower to ease the guards (if there is any) to monitor the security. What the residence can do is to form a joint committee to hire guards to secure outsider from entering. My concern will be the Taman Saujana beside which is an eyesore, will DNP create a fence to separate the 2 will be a big question.

    Chicken Farm
    Taking a cycle ride on the surrounding area shows that there is chicken farm but it is about 5km away. The source of problem is on the yellow colored factory which is believe to be the chicken processing plant for KFC. DNP always organize event recently, a visit to there will be good to judge the validity of the fly issue.

    Strategic location
    This is subjective and depends on what the purchaser’s priority. Looking on the initiative made by DNP, I belief that the area have benefited completely on the projects that is being injected consistently. The widening of road, Tesco, shop lots and soon AEON are projects that will boost the area completely. Once AEON is here, the problem will be the heavy traffic as it is just beside Jesselton Hills. I suppose, there is more gain than pain as it progresses as this area will be the main satellite township for the surrounding residence. For those that is working at Bayan Lepas, the drive will be 14km to Batu Kawan which is the link to the 2nd bridge.

    Agree but not Jesselton Hills as DNP have pave the land to increase the level. We also understand that MPSP are working to have a monsoon drain outside linking to the mainroad. That will indirectly channel out the water. The idea to build retention is brilliant compared to certain developer that wastes a huge piece of land for the monitor lizard. Furthermore, the pond can be a recreation site for family outing or fishing. Again, Jesselton residence needs to work with DNP to secure the place from outsider.

    I’m interested in the terrace also… but no show house yet…. if not mistaken, the terrace is nearer to the chicken hill as compared to the semi D.
    1 of the thing i like about their house is they have high ceiling… I’m worried about the landscaping after a few years…..

    Went to the sales office a few days back during raya holiday.
    Was shock to know that the newly launched terrace is RM578k.. Wow, now an intermediate terrace in Alma also command more than half a million. What a record..
    Noticed that the sales of Semi-D is very poor.. Many units are still available even though they have launched it for a few months already. Seem that the market is getting slower with all the developers keep launching new projects, hence oversupply already.

  184. yanguy
    August 24th, 2012 at 16:34 | #184

    during last year feb cny 1st pre-launch of phase1 semiD cost 512-10K, some1 said: “502K for a semi detached house at Alma is a bit expensive.”
    upon official launching july/aug, price up to 550-15K, 2.5semiD 790-15K
    by the year of 2012, price up to 598K & 798K-18888 just before the showcase
    and while the showcase, new price of 653K & 818K, both rebate 28888 and all in package.
    for new phase2 lakeside terraces, earlier bird getting rebate of 25K + about 20K of the legal fees, stamp duty as well as transfer and loan charges absorb by dnp, so means the actual price only 533K.
    since landed was up to 500K++, coming up high level hill view of new service apartment @ mahkota impiana square price surely 300K++per unit.

    August 25th, 2012 at 12:07 | #189

    property prices are going up due to excessive speculative buying by so-call investor but should be called speculator…

    this is partly due to low interest rates…DIBS….the notion that properties purchase enable you to earn a quick buck compared to long-term investment in shares/equities….

    i think many ppl with surplus cash are disillusioned with the equity markets..they are looking for alternative investments, eg properties, commodities (gold was popular at one time)…

    There are still many units of Semi-D available, I think mostly 2-storey.
    For the 2.5-storey, due to limited units being built, so I think the available units now are lesser if compared with 2-storey. The sales is quite bad, when I compare the sales chart now versus back in May, just a few units sold within this few months period.

    I believe the first original price was 512k with 10k cash rebate. Just over a year and now it now hitting over 600k. OC will be next year Sep/Oct and will probably go up even more…

    How the developer increased the price really puzzled me.
    It’s not that the demand is ultra high which leads to the increase of price. The situation now is the developer just increase the price even though demand is week. When I looked at the sales chart, there are still easily 60%++ of the total units still remain unsold (I am talking about the phase 1 Semi-D), but somehow they still increase the price.
    Hehe… now that’s the new rule of supply & demand.

    I basically lived near there (tmn selamat) for years before moving to somewhere a little further… that place used to have chicken smell but not anymore… i trust my experience as i still have relatives staying nearby…

    anyway, i got the semi d unit… wow, double storey already selling 550k above… what about the price of the semi d now? anyway, it’s a good buy… another relative bought long time ago at taman impian near to the park, nice place!
