    Bayan Baru is getting more and more busy nowadays with all these new development. After D’piazza, there will be one world, one world II, the arena, Elite height, olive tree, and also the upcoming integrated development from Hunza. I am wondering how the traffic gonna cope with all these? For those travelling from the bridge (be it from Bayan Lepas hwy or Jalan sultan azlan shah), you will have to first overcome the big and congested round-about, then the nightmare at the 2 traffic lights at Jalan Tun Dr Awang. In the future we have the SPICe coming up, imagine if really having major events, the place would be jammed pack like mad, unless you take a helicopter.

    Penang Island is in urgent need to have a more robust public transportation system, such as LRT or monorial, or else i don’t think any major developments can move ahead.

    I was told it is next to The One. Actually 3 arce land very small only. Looking at their design, may be possible. If anyone hear something different, please let me know :)

    November 26th, 2011 at 21:06 | #11

    Expect the price to be around RM400 sqft following the current trend

    Should be but anyone know the build up? :)

  13. Eric
    November 26th, 2011 at 23:31 | #13

    I got info from one contractor that work on this project the size is 1400sqft but the price is unknown

  14. WK
    November 27th, 2011 at 22:56 | #14

    Eric, thanks for the info.

    Same as BSG Raffles Tower. If both are 1400 sqft and RM400 per sqft, maybe I will consider Olive Tree instead of Raffles Tower at Bukit Gambir.

  32. aaron
    May 2nd, 2012 at 14:42 | #32

    1680 and 1880 sf . two types only

  33. Pen
    May 12th, 2012 at 16:21 | #33

    Nope, I just found out that Olive Tree will be in the small land next to Arena, not next to Sri Malaysia.

  34. YK
    May 12th, 2012 at 17:57 | #34

    IC, I just get to know the land next to Sri Malaysia Hotel is D’Cascadium from Lion Group. If RM500 per sqft x 1680 sqft = RM840K. Wah, too expensive and out of budget :(

  35. Pen
    May 12th, 2012 at 19:57 | #35

    Since Arena is a hybrid property, a combination of residential n commercial titles. What will be the title for Olice Tree? Commercial or residential?

  36. Pen
    May 12th, 2012 at 20:00 | #36

    I got the feeling that the developer will reduce the build up to smaller size. Like between 1000-1400sqft which are the widely popular sizes. $800k price tag condo will be hard to sell in BB areas as of now.

  37. aaron
    May 12th, 2012 at 20:19 | #37

    it is commercial title, understand from developer. heard it is around RM450 psf, then RM750k per unit with semi furnished, then sound more reasonable?

  38. YK
    May 13th, 2012 at 02:34 | #38

    Yes, sound more reasonable and better if RM750K with semi furnished on 1680 sqft condo. How about loan interest subsidy? If include, then can consider on this project.

  39. aaron
    May 13th, 2012 at 21:09 | #39

    no interest subsidy

  40. david
    May 15th, 2012 at 10:36 | #40

    Does anyone have the latest info D’Cascadium from Lion Group?

  41. Pen
    May 25th, 2012 at 21:42 | #41

    Reasonable at the price of $750k? I think you must be from the office of developer. haha.

  42. YK
    May 25th, 2012 at 23:54 | #42


    U really don’t know the market value now. Did you know that leasehold D’Cascadium selling how much? If I’m one of the Harta Intan’s staff. I still need to ask around and search for info?

  43. Pen
    May 26th, 2012 at 08:54 | #43

    Honestly, I really don’t know how both OTR and DC can sell when they launch. You may have to enlighten me. As fas as I know TGT is still selling below $350psf, Arena bumi lot release will be sold under $370psf, D’Piazza is selling under $370psf now. So what are their selling points at OTR n DC to allow them to fetch >$450psf?

  44. YK
    May 26th, 2012 at 09:51 | #44


    This is what we are facing it now. Nowadays developer market their project with projected future price.

  45. Pen
    May 26th, 2012 at 13:29 | #45

    I think both developers of OTR and DC will start dropping their launch price now after seeing the messages here, or to provide more facilities as attraction in their projects to launch, haha.

    May be the selling points is the free bus interchange by Arena… and the RM450psf have factor in the extra thing state government request to build. If not, kena like Arena developer have to chunk out from pocket or cut corner from building lah…

  49. Pen
    July 1st, 2012 at 17:22 | #49

    If I have an elderly at home, I would prefer they can reach a bus depot or a bus stop easily. After I had lived in Singapore for a while, I can see how mobile are the elderlies there. They travel to malls, gathering, tai chi, friends house & market so freely with buses & MRT. The Malaysians’ elderlies are more pathetic as they will have to stay at home most of the time, and wait for their kids are back from work before they can leave house for a stretch.

    I personally like the bus depot concept. If they can add another monorail depot here it will be perfect!

  50. LS
    July 1st, 2012 at 18:32 | #50

    M’sia not like Singapore. There are a lot of snatch thieve cases and cheating plots especially targeting erlderlies in public places like bus depot. I will prefer they drive if can, if not, then better stay at places near to market or mall, like Lip Sin, Batu Lanchang, etc. Cannot just simply apply your concept here, it is very dangerous out there.

  51. Pen
    July 1st, 2012 at 19:49 | #51

    Haha, I also disagree with you. If you afraid of snatch thieves, just don’t carry a hand bag, and don’t carry extra money. I bet Lip Sin & Batu Lanchang have snatch thieves as well, staying there is as risky.

    Cheating plot? Any markets & malls will have it, it’s not limited to bus depots. If they are not able to differential the plot, you better take additional steps to secure their saving.

    In short, I can’t lock my parents in the house because of the reason its not safe. But, I will take the preventive measures to ensure I won’t have total lost.

  52. wbk
    July 6th, 2012 at 09:06 | #52


    wah…. willing to let your elders take the risk by letting them to walk to the bus depot and take the bus themselves?

    Arena really lucky lar to have such a die hard supporter… hehe…

  53. Tree
    July 6th, 2012 at 09:33 | #53

    This project located beside Arena? So small land, able to build condo + hotel + commercial shop lots??

  54. Pen
    July 6th, 2012 at 09:38 | #54

    Ya, you can do the direct opposite n buy 3 padlocks to make sure they are locked in the chamber till u come home everyday, your choice. Add a few more to make u feel safe!

  55. wbk
    July 6th, 2012 at 09:48 | #55


    Hehe… go so extreme meh… wat we expect a sensible and educated child to do is to be responsible… Put them at risk or lock them up are both irresponsible lar… hehe…

    Up to you if you think it is OK lar… parent is yours… hehe…

  57. Pen
    July 6th, 2012 at 10:18 | #57

    Allowing parents/elders to take bus to where they want to be is = put them at risk? I just don’t get the logic. Since when Penang is classified as war zone? Should we buy bulletproof vest, apply for guns, hire 4 bodyguard before walking out tonight?

    Yes, me parents are mine, full stop.

  58. wbk
    July 6th, 2012 at 11:01 | #58


    No need to jump into conclusion so fast lor… wait till you get the bus interchange @ your Arena first lar. Safety is just one of the concern lar for the elders. Nowadays even shopping mall carpark also can get robbed one lar if not careful… Not to mention the noise ah, smog ah, etc lar.. hehe…

  59. Pen
    July 6th, 2012 at 11:41 | #59

    These, I agreed. Just read the news about the robbers at shopping malls.

    You just need to walk into singapore, i believe just that you can feel the different between singapore and malaysia. Yes snatch thieve case and cheating plots happen but please compare the percentage. Please go and ask worldwide ppl, malaysia izzit = singapore ? Dumbass !!

    July 7th, 2012 at 18:42 | #62

    Relatively small project, very low density and relatively isolated residential from the rest of condominium projects in Bayan Baru. Better, more privacy. Worth buy for own stay.

  63. PG
    July 7th, 2012 at 19:31 | #63

    Ooh! No wonder that comment was left in Arena tread lah. The OT salesman started to work, they must have forgotten the bus depot is just less than 100m away from OT. And Bangla n Indon can manage to walk more than 100m to find toilets too.

    I bet they will start releasing more info on OT soon, launch date is near, sales team is at work.

    July 8th, 2012 at 23:17 | #64

    I wonder how are they going to price this project. It will be interesting to compare with the Arena.

    July 21st, 2012 at 14:00 | #69


    There is nothing personal here, better concentrate on your portfolio rather than prejudice to Mr. ZAKARIYYA.

    Sound like OTR is really a ‘threat’ to your Arena, place of pride inspired by the ancient Roman amphitheater!

    How about your unit in Zan Pavilion? Sound like many surrounding nearby projects with better location are really threatening to Zan Pavilion sub sale market!

  70. U
    July 21st, 2012 at 14:58 | #70

    Compared to new project selling minimal at rm500k for 1100sqft like setia pinnacle … Add extra 100k for 2000sqft for zan… I think ppl may think twice also … Just an opinion … Comment ?

  71. PG
    July 21st, 2012 at 15:59 | #71

    Wow, the OTR sales is on fire now…. How much the OTR sales price? $450psf now? Do you have the layout? Do start blowing the pros of OTR over the nearby projects like Elit, D’Piazza, Arena, Promenade, One-World lah. See how far you can go?

  72. Analyst
    July 21st, 2012 at 17:36 | #72

    We hv Elit,Dpiazza,arena,one world,Promenade and now OTR…within the vicinity
    do all of you think there is real demand?what are the chances of demand for sub sale and rental for the majority who have bought for investment?

  73. Crystal Ball
    July 22nd, 2012 at 11:21 | #73

    OTR should priced lower than Arena lah…Arena have to forge out money to do social responsibility to build the 2-storeys bus interchange, OTR just sit there enjoy the facilities. How can? sure have to sell lower price lah, anyone can estimate the cost for bus interchange and convert to equivalent price per sqf?.. if not should support Arena lor…

  74. spongebob
    July 22nd, 2012 at 11:59 | #74

    Like it or not, I smell that they going to price it very high. So just forget about it.

    July 23rd, 2012 at 12:39 | #75

    Nobody bought the OTR units since it is not launch yet.

    All the opinions here mostly are predictive view and predictive value depends on few factors. If people gave bad predictive view based on few factors that are really bad then the view is acceptable. But if people gave bad impression purposely to downgrade it because it is a rival to theirs then this attitude is not acceptable.

  77. YK
    July 23rd, 2012 at 23:45 | #77

    Selling point for this project should be low density and freehold. Heard that roughly RM500 per sqft, is it true?

    Most of the commentators here show maturity and healthy discussion.

    Unfortunately, there are few people who use 2 or 3 pseudo names to discredit others. I really hope that they are not suffering from split personality disorders.


    Thank you for the info

    July 24th, 2012 at 08:58 | #81

    OTR is worse than Arena, it is located right in front of the future BIG cross junction connecting to the 6 lanes Golden Triangle-Relau access road….so smoke & noise from massive traffic + bus interchange nearby..you can see the road work already in progress.
