    Eric, normal people will show concern and join the voice with BLVD people to push for RID. And you look like reject to feedback and concern from BLVD. BLVD bigger unit is cos RM450K to RM500K and Penhouse is RM600K to RM800K. It will happen to MR also. Eric, you much be RID guy and keep on chase away BLVD from commenting on this blog. It is a normal thing for Buyer to feedback here or goto your sale office and shout there. Do you wish this happen? Guy, better dont buy RID house as you are not ‘what you see, what you have’

    Support You!!! Eric bought the ‘Half Million’ MR but didn’t expect the design on the brochure to be the same as the actual building, but expect actual building 101% complied to the brochure nia.

    pls listen to Chuah …. we need to accept comment. BLVD and MR are same, need to work together. If u accuse chuah is work for other, then we can ask if you are from MR or BLVD ….. pls think …… what the message is.

    for so many years developers have been manipulating buyers. But with IT age now rules of the game have change. Buyers now have the ‘check-and-balance’ power to protect own interest. so it is regardless of developers, be it IJM, SP Setia, Mah Sing, IDEAL, RID, or any others. Drain away those cunning developers and let it be a lesson to all.

    Anyone can provide the boulevard blog? I tried to google it, but didn’t find a informative blog that has all the “complaints”, will try to see if can visit the “water tank” next time I go to Air Itam.
    To all MR Buyers, let’s hope that our choice is correct and RID won’t dissapoint us, but if we’re wrong and see that there’s obvious cutting corners, then we need to work together to make sure RID give us what we deserves. 500k is a lot of $$, it can buy me a bungalow elsewhere, I sure don’t want any corners of my hard earned 500k cut away by anyone.

    By the way, just to share. I got friends who complaints to McD that their burgers is not the same as illustrated and they got a new one which “more resemblance” to the “artistic impression” brochures. But to complaint or not, it’s still pretty much depends on individual’s expectation.

    panda :
    Is this the lowest density condo launched in the last 3 yrs?

    definitely not… talking about quantity of units, I think Pavillion Resort and D’zone are less. Talking about density per land size probably is One Imperial or Fiera Vista…

    Went there yesterday. I saw it has reach 15th floor. Another half to go. Quite impressive, RID build 3 to 3.5 storey in a month.

  29. ah neh
    December 22nd, 2012 at 14:47 | #30

    I a bit worry ler.. RID built Reflection so slow per floor while so fast for meridian.. some said the concrete/structure will not been dried properly….

  30. erichoon81
    December 22nd, 2012 at 17:56 | #31

    Maybe due to when building Reflection, they got Boulevard as well as MR on going. Now I think they left 1 project which is MR. More manpower/ resources.

  31. angmokio
    December 25th, 2012 at 00:11 | #32

    Visited the site in the afternoon, overall can see the surrounding are looking good to be a nice residential area. MR direction will not be blocked by the reflection condo. Happy to see he progress is going in a right pace. Finger cross for the snake year to come. Good new year and merry Christmas to all MR buyers.

    Hi Gang
    I taken few pictures and sent them to admin for posting.
    Can see that the road has been widened to 2 lanes until Orchard Ville project sites. Hopefully no contractor gangster around unlike Reflection condo nearby when project completed.

  40. March 10th, 2013 at 12:21 | #41

    All MR buyers, any idea what is the ceilling height for MR? should be 10′ but doesn’t looks like that tall from the picture.

  41. J@cK
    March 12th, 2013 at 12:07 | #42

    Hope there’s no gangster around.. I did check with Dev on this issue 2 years ago.. As they said they wont be this issue as it will be high end project..

  42. Ben

    Still left 3 units!

  47. ST
    March 19th, 2013 at 12:21 | #48

    More than 2 years, still left 3 units ? Subsale in Sungai Ara is not looking

  48. angmokio
    March 19th, 2013 at 21:50 | #49

    That’s bcos the buying price not match the asking price. Furthermore 3 units maybe are the penthouses which are difficult to sell due to high price. Lets wait for the LRT to link up there then the sales sure pick up. By then I will be too late to bid a unit.

  49. erichoon81
    March 19th, 2013 at 23:28 | #50

    I did called up before to enquire on the balance unit.
    2 units are in level 7 (which is the lowest level) and 1 unit is level 8.
    Level 7 is currently selling at RM658,000.

  50. erichoon81
    March 19th, 2013 at 23:30 | #51

    Will be happy enough if I could sell at RM600k and above.
    Mine middle floor :)

  51. J@cK
    March 21st, 2013 at 16:21 | #52

    good to see the price is growing..btw high end in a way, expensive from BLV Condo..

  52. Miku
    March 22nd, 2013 at 12:51 | #53

    erichoon81: 658k for 7th floor? sure?

  53. erichoon81
    March 22nd, 2013 at 23:08 | #54

    Miku: Yes. You can try call RID office and ask.

    But the price yet to deduct the 7%. Actual price RM611,940 after 7%.

    Can see in mudah Reflection ppl selling RM630,000 to RM670,000 for 1,260 sq feet.

    Hey Come ON u guys ???
    Still dream for LRT ??
    Even G build a LRT infront of your condo but in malaysia culture, i can sure still not much will use it. We cannot compare to SG, HK & SHA people.

    Car already is our leg. Without car that meant u will handicap.

    My experience last time i worked in SG, my condo near already got a MRT but i still prefer buy a car to travel everyday to work ???

  61. jackie
    May 18th, 2013 at 18:05 | #62

    LRT/MRT/Monorail won’t be able to built in here in any time sooner than 10-15 years.
    Now it’s rocket time…only left tram, and i wonder tram will come over here. lets face the truth

  62. appollo31
    May 19th, 2013 at 00:20 | #63

    tram also no need. I can 200% sure Malaysia culture again for not hot to use public transport.
    Still prefer own driving for convenient.
    Let wait & C.

  63. jackie
    May 19th, 2013 at 01:11 | #64

    i did not agree…you cant put your own thinking to every penangite, i think if the location of every MRT/LRT is wise, i am sure everyone will prefer to take to destination instead of stuck in the traffic jam since penang so small

  64. appollo31
    May 19th, 2013 at 08:19 | #65

    let wait & c. I will strongly agree for PG don’t build LRT, MRT & tram.
    People will not much use it. End up still like KL LRT still loosing $$. Then this G companies still need G to pump in $ to survive.
    Just imagine penangite want to crowded with all Bangalo, indonesia for everyday pack in public transport ??
    U ask back yourself ???
    This is our culture is different from others countries.

    Well, could always make anonymous complaints to DAP and police or something if it happens. Thought I wouldn’t mind “panel” if the price and quality of work is good. But still, the option to get someone external has to be there in the first place. https://dapmalaysia.org/english/2013/aug13/bul/bul5596.php

    Not sure but wouldn’t be far from 25c… if you visited the site recently, I think it should be completed by year end.

    Two of the projects are near the bridge interchange in Batu Maung. They are the upgrading of Jalan Permatang Damar Laut, which includes a new flyover and a roundabout at Southbay, and the upgrading of a stretch of the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway with an elevated highway from the interchange up to the Queensbay Mall area.

    The RM165 million upgrading of Jalan Permatang Damar Laut, which started last July, is expected to be finished in July next year. The flyover project, which is part of the upgrade, is still in the design stage.

    The elevated highway, however, has not started as the Public Works Department is still ironing out issues to take over the project from the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM). If it had started in 2012, the project – which was estimated to cost between RM200 million to RM300 million when proposed – might be completed next year.

    The third project is the widening of roads and the building of an elevated highway from Bayan Lepas to Teluk Kumbar near Gertak Sanggul to overcome the serious bottleneck issue in Bayan Lepas. The project kicked off last week and is expected to take 30 months to complete without any hiccups.

    That sounds really great. I’m staying in Teluk Kumbar and have another house in Batu Maung. Construction in Permatang Damar Laut started last July? Are u serious? I cant see any construction in that area until today, unless they widen a bit the road for student in SK Permatang Damar Laut. Complete next year, just curious.

    Widening road from bayan lepas to teluk kumbar started last week? Again, seriously? I’m using that road everyday, and not able to observe any sign for road construction. Should they want to widening the road, as I see in the project plan, my house in teluk kumbar will be demolished n we should be able to get better compensation. However, no notice yet for us to vacant our property, n it will take time as well for us to fight for better compensation. We’ll wait n c.

    However, I do hope this will come true, if not for us, for our next generation. And again, are u serious?

    That’s good to know!

    yaki :called developer today and was told the key collection will begin once bank makes remaining payment to developer which is expected to happen next 1-2 weeks… developer will call for appointment.

    I got the bank letter saying they released the final amount and that I need to start servicing my loan from the 4th of April onwards.

    Anyone figured out renovations and stuff already?

  102. Jon
    March 12th, 2014 at 17:18 | #103

    Errr. So I just collected a letter from the post office from RID dated last week about key collection. Apparently the schedule is full for this week. So I guess a bunch of MR buyers who aren’t active here are already in queue. :)

    Received RID call today. Weekend is full so I’m collecting tomorrow.

    BTW, I’m surprised by the maintenance fee as I thought 0.20/sqft still stands.

    March 13th, 2014 at 17:47 | #106


    yes, I am collecting my key tomorrow too…

    same with you, i am quite surprised with the maintenance fee, probably due to inflation?

    hi guys,

    Have you noticed that there are no water outlet to install instant water heaters in the bathrooms?

    RID claims that there is no provision for water outlet in SPA but water heater points are clearly included in SPA. How could RID just provide the power points and not the water outlet points?
    RID should a add an elbow for water heaters.

    Please share what you will do in order to install the water heaters.

Your comment is so greatly appreciated by the community here that I’d even go so far as to say I would nominate you as the best-ever contributor to this site since forever. But still, I feel sad for your cousin cause she was so stupid for buying this “ranjau/bahlia house”; must be the worst bimbo ever.

    MR price will be on the downtrend. the smaller 12xx unit is terrible… design is out. the bigger unit is much better… for all corners

    middle units has no windows for room… you will look at a wall.. only worth less than rm600k for those who, like to see walls.

    i have difficulty selling of my 1260 sft unit too. The moment buyers walk in, they just withdraw after looking at the layout and rooms. I gone as low as rm630k…. maybe need to go lower?

  140. ezalor
    March 27th, 2015 at 13:27 | #141

    You seem like pretend to be Meridien owner, actually fake one. All meridien owners, if their eye are not blind, sure will see the 2600+ project land clearing in progress actively beside their condo.

    how is the traffic condition in this area before and after working hours? will be affected with the affordable homes next door?

    planning to buy a 1380 sq ft unit but afraid traffic.

  149. JiKay
    October 6th, 2015 at 14:08 | #150

    Unavoidable for traffic volume to increase with increase in occupancy rate. Happens almost everywhere as development progresses. Hopefully another access road to the affordable homes would be built apart from the current road to Meridien.

  150. Island
    October 6th, 2015 at 17:38 | #151

    Hahaha, now you all will know, too many condo built around and no proper transportation plan. This is what everyone could suffer right now in Penang.

    Market demand also slow down especially for high rise building was over supplied in Penang island. Those speculate the condo, will suffer and getting difficulty to find buyer. Next year you start can feel the impact liao.

  153. Island
    November 14th, 2015 at 16:53 | #154


    Better still if it comes to a standstill. Just keep adding traffic lights and more
    artificial bumps. Anyway Penangites drive very slow like tortoises. The slower
    the better.

  154. Island guy
    November 15th, 2015 at 11:02 | #155

    That’s why in Malaysia the transportation system is still far behind compare to well developed country. Adding traffic light is only a co-temporary solution.

    In Penang island, I believe LRT system could be implemented down the road as well as there is such a need in high density populated area with the total population of around 850,000 people today.

    Master plan has been proposed for quite sometime few years back. It will be a well successful project once people could adopt to the public transportation and this also in turn will benefit the Penangites. All of this would depend to the approval of Federal government only.

    Penang is among the top 3 states which contributes the biggest amount of income tax.

  155. Island
    November 15th, 2015 at 12:22 | #156

    @Island guy

    Everything in Malaysia is way far behind others. S’pore had its first MRT in 1987
    and was initiated in 1967. Talking about “master” plan just a few years ago ?

    Hahaha….hahaha……….haha……Where got brains in the government ?

    good news as price of this condo drop to 580–600k already since no buyer wan buy

    but are very crowded with too many condo…. traffic too heavy

    good to buy for retired people

  157. Island guy
    November 21st, 2015 at 16:24 | #158

    There is buyer looking for house but too much choices right now and loan rejection by the bank was the main reason for unsold property in the rise currently especially for high end condo which cost RM600k and above.

    A survety show that the percentage of potential property buyers who had failed to secure loans from a bank had increased from 29% in the second quarter 2014 to 35% during the first half 2015.

    That was the reason why the price of new condo drop slightly recently but it will be significantly maintain at a reasonable market value as price of raw material increases with the weaken ringgit since 2nd half of 2015.

    However, I noticed that there is not much affect for the property located in superb location.

  158. janice
    January 7th, 2016 at 12:50 | #159

    It is very unusual for a property to drop so fast and so much. The owner(s) must be heading for a loan default if not sold fast.

    I will consider to buy if drop till RM300 psf. It’s more interesting that time price drop badly.

    Once one foresta in construction, your condo will facing a lot of dirty dusts + mosquitoes (denggis) + a lots of dumping rubbish from indo, banglas. Your condo will be very smelling.

    After setia triangle completed with OC, your condo area will be highly traffic jam during working hours.

    Better selling fast now and your condo price will hit bank loan default price sooner.

    Sorry Man Ji, One Forestta construction is indeed in progress.
    So far the common access road (tingkat kelicap) is still in good condition.
    Ideal have been very responsive to feedbacks and from my observation… they have done their responsibility well.
    The small stream in front of the project is still running. I can see the site manager do take care to have embankment to avoid runoff from work site into the stream. proper barricade were in place..
    So far no foul smelling waste coming our way. We can see the ‘kongsi’ is well within the enormous site of one forestta.
    Can wait to see the completion of one forresta. By then tingkat kelicap will not be a dead end road instead we will have thru road and link up with the main road.

    Balcony view still very good. Setia triangle completed and well below our balcony line. We can all the way to Ideal’s project in sg. tiram (for low level units) unobstructed. One residence are landed properties and on lower ground.
    Final word. our building is single sided means, our main door is facing the hill unobstructed and always windy… man no chance for my living room to work.. cheers

    Dear Samantha,
    it’s a good place to stay.
    Once you step out from your unit, the corridor is open due to only one side of building with units. the other side wide open with view of the hill and Orchardville, Mutiara perdana and a low cost block. But they were quite distance away so it is always windy.

    You don’t have to walk in enclosed common corridor.
    density is low.
    pure residential only.
    all amenities is functional.
    reasonable location and close to industrial zone…
