    @Pgster

    Yea i heard an investor bought up all the small units in Block C and D.

    I guess buy now and worry about it 4 years later?

    Will there be a preview of the showroom on the 6th of february?

  7. KK
    February 3rd, 2013 at 00:23 | #7

    This is the first phase… and i believe Block A-E is only consist 10% of total project land. Ivory need to prove this project is a successful one because they have 100acre of land in Bayan Mutiara. Then only they will manage to sell future phases with higher value.

    650psft sounds reasonable. Even Southbay is asking for 700psft two years ago. I think future launch will be at least 750psft for world city. Whoever stay at gold coast and putra place will have to suffer the construction havoc for a while.

    February 3rd, 2013 at 09:44 | #16

    I was thinking whether we should call this place Bayan Mutiara or Penang World City, quite confusing to me. If they make it a distinct district like queensbay, then easier for ppl to recognise and pronounce. So perhaps Bayan Mutiara name. Just call Penang World City now onwards or TropicanaIvory :p

    I believe there are still some units in a, b, c and d left but most probably would be bigger sizes. Worth to check it out. And during preview later, we should see block E.

    Almost 50% of this project Phase 1A launch was purchased by KL investors. As quick comparison, 650psf PWC vs Mahsing Southbay Plaza launch price, PWC is a bargain at this location. 650psf, you can’t even get a decent condo in PJ or SJ areas, most of them are leasehold and commercial title but now u can get it beside the sea. Sg Ara reflection subsale is asking for $800k for 1512sf now, $ and deep in Sg Ara! Comparatively PWC is still a bargain. Remember you are buying PWC at $650psf of the future price (only commit bank loan in 4 years). Still a bargain.

    Ya. Good location , near to both bridge, easy access to highway, potential future growth with 100ache land and 10billion project development, 1st phase project, selling price cheaper than those feature developer like IJM or Mahsing, limited big land have in surrounding that area by other developer, potential high income ppl to rent because near to working place/factory, lesser traffic jam headache and easy access to any direction as Penang traffic getting worst and worst.

    gold coast owner will be very happy, this will push the “value” higher. also good for putra place, will now be more ridiculous. as for PWC, look at the block alignment and unit arrangement, i was not convinced. you will be paying a premium for poor units with poor view. i was expecting ivory to come up with better things but nope. no matter what is said, this phase 1 is to suck the blood dry. future price? i’d rather buy a unit in gold coast now

    February 3rd, 2013 at 15:18 | #32

    @islander
    just my personal opinion.
    no matter is leasehold or freehold, at least in penang, the location and quality of life is more important. even leasehold projects like summer place and spring, look at their value now and their future potential? but look at PWC, i’m sure if is leasehold it will still sell like hot cake. because Penang market is too much controlled and influenced by speculators and developers, its the effect of the free economy but economy dont favor the middle income and the poor. this is why the saying – rich getting richer

    my opinion only :)

    N-Park & E-Park is better bargain!!! freehold, location almost similar and just wait for the time to fill the big price gap (RM400psf Vs RM700psf for PWC). ROI conservatively 50% or more and return could be better than PWC! Anyone interested to chip in??

    The density of N-Park is definitely lower/less congested than this 5-blocks, & with many 455sqf studio type PWC project. Potential return per price ratio (ROI) is definitely better, and it is for certain that the price will be close up the gap in the future! low risk & high return.

    Agreed with the strategy of fill up big gap of 400 sq with 650 sq…take very simple math to calc ulate the roi…same go to propert surounding, only 420 sq. be it free hold or lease hold, end of the day, if government want to take back for development, it will take back too. Dun fool with this. It,s just a developer startegy.

    this is marketing strategy, artificially creating a high end price in perception by putting 650pst for phase 1 (which scheduled to start work only in one year time). If economy still good and going, price will continue to go up for next phase. Until it reach a point where no more real buyer or investor could support these price increase, it will fall back to the equilibrium point where buyer or investor could affordably purchase it.

    I beg to differ….I am confident that prices on the island will continue to rise (at a slower rate than before)….. the demand is phenomenal….. both form local and foreign…. Penang has so much to offer….for the past 50 -60 years Penang has always been the favoured destination…..it will remain such as Penang lang has such great spirit….you can find Penang lang all over the world…..deep in their hearts Penang is still the best!!!!

    I will cancel the order on Monday, knowing the purchasers are 95% or even more are investors, I do not think I will be so lucky for my turn able to sell my unit or rent it out without problem upon completion. However this is individual perception and decision, just my opinion. I prefer to use the same fund for other projects in KL/Klang Valley.
    By the way, this is not really a high end condo, just take a look of the typical layout plan and we could easily see how many units per floor can anticipate the kind of future residents there. I could be wrong, time will tell. Just base on my previous experience and mistakes.

    (1) Unethical business practice by developers is not something new. (2) Gullible investors blinded by greed is not something new. (1) + (2) = artificially inflated property price. I wonder if LGE is not capable of comprehending what’s going on and therefore not addressing it with proper regulations, or is he just too afraid to offend developers? Maybe he’s going to just blame the previous state gov for not addressing the issue first, therefore it’s ok now if he doesn’t address it?….:)

    What unethical business practice are we talking about here? Isn’t it the developers’ prerogative to determine when (including before the project is opened for buying) and who (including cronies) to sell to? Isn’t it the developers’ prerogative to raise the price after selling the desired number of units?….:) Is there a law saying that’s illegal? If there’s none, what is stopping us from making one?

    Boss, why you price so cheap, VVIP ? read thru d posts, it seems oledi hit 800psf for some units. Can anyone here clarify ???? tq

    I suppose KK is refer to the net off price and your mentioned price is refered to the list price before discount. Generally the bigger the unit, the cheaper in term of per sqft and the smaller it is, the higher in price in term of per sqft. As from y experience, almost all developer calculate using the similar formula whereby the 1st 300sqft is a fixed rate at much higher price /sqft, the subsequent is lower and get lower, this is how the developers calculate the costs.

    February 4th, 2013 at 10:49 | #89

    hmm….looks like this phase 1A is closest to the black river and coastal highway…..so there is tendency that even the sea facing unit view will be blocked, because if you observe the location detail enough, there could be another phase (maybe phase 1B ?) right in front of block C/D/E, which is closer to the jerejak jetty and beach.

    Since i dont go into the room to see the actual masterplan model (do they have one?), I just snap the block C/D floorplan and phase 1A masterplan, and try match the location & size to google map… hehe

    from what i hear is there definitely will be more reclaimation and development, and is common knowledge in a mixed development like this, the developer will open their least desirable phase as phase 1. sea view? i wouldnt put too much hope. those who buy units facing inland will have evening sun. good luck with that. its scorching hot and daytime can view haze only :(

    @Carla
    my personal opinion:
    if for investment, is there any other option? rental or resell?
    for such price, how much rental they will demand? remember there are many projects to come in sg nibong area, which itself is not bad and will provide competition. when rental market dont move, the only way is to lower rentals, which, will attract the people you may not like.

    and for subsale, as pointed out, this project have to be spectacular, because gold coast is nearby, and queensbay mall empty land still available

    like many here suggest, most buyers are speculators.

    for own stay:
    why? is it so good?

    i think everything has got to have its limit. time will tell if its worth it. there are so many factors to look at

    just my 2 cents

    Here are my opinions on this project:

    Has the planning permission been approved?

    If it’s 87 units/acre, the project is X3 more densed than Light / QuaySide etc. How can it be high end?

    Based on 87 units/acre and selling at 700/sqf., I believe the developer can make a profit of at least 500million from this 1st 10 acres site, so they are trying to creat a “panic” situation for the greedy speculators to jump in, and I believe this strategy works well.

    GREED is the word… for both developer and speculators.

    Such a High densitiy project with ~700 persqft is not worth at all , some more facing inland, river and the so call sea view will be block in future for sure. Some relatives that managed to went in to the booking room mentioned that this developer (especially the mgmt team) is so unprofessional & unethical. Only bulk buyer time is valuable and not considerate about the genuine buyer’s time….and they are so silly ,think about if they were to sell majority of the small units (870, 1020 sqft) to the bulk buyer how are they going to face their genuine buyer…

    i was curious, last time Straits Garden studio suite launch with lower price, but the response really teruk, and ppl question n cursing kao kao…

    and now this PWC studio suite launch every 1 is so madly chasing about it……

    yes correct it is located at superb masterplan (compare to Straits Garden), but is this will boost the rental market for this small units? for typical 350k unit, monthly replayment about ~1.5k. Will anyone/couple pay 1.5k to rent a studio? Over here we dont have banks / financial hubs (where money come fast/go fast, so they willing to spend for lifestyle), and I don’t think typical local engineer will rent that, don’t talk about expats (you and I know how little this population in FTZ, nowadays).

    I am not sure what commercial activities in the PWC masterplan (hospital, can rent to doctor/nurse? commercial? education?)

    So right now I really not sure which type or target tenant for this small studio units.

    (anyone who manage to bought smaller studio units, mind to share your insights?)

    Would like to know more information about the 3+5% package. I know that the 3% will be deducted from the selling price. Say property price is 600k, then it is 0.97 * 600k

    I have been to a few new launches in the past…this launch by far the entails the biggest manipulation strategy by the developer. They first give priority to “members”, then open limited units to the public and everyone scrambles for the leftovers, then they increase the price each day so people will rush afraid prices will go up again, then they get agents to to bid for clients….I may come across negative by many but seriously think about it…they have actually made people to rush like mad and book a property. Inflated the price way beyond any price in that area. Overall its a long term 20 year project. But hypothetically if the economy goes sour I bet my million bucks that the remaining project will be abandoned until the economy recovers (can even stop building). The developer is not obligated to completed the whole thing as it is phased.

    Price comparison should take in the time factor. RM 900K Net for PWC in 2016 on 1320sqft, The light 1450sqft could be RM 1.2M in 2016.Or I should say the PWC is actually selling at current pricing at 0.95×0.95×0.95 X ( the current net price )= __________ ac tual price.
    However for me it is not just the price issue, something else as more important factors not to proceed.

    I was at the launch my self and really wasnt please…I own a few properties. This would be one im staying away from. Totally unethical

    From what this guy have just said….Why are you people surprised that many unit are now available? It was all a scam from the start…As if the demand was so high over the weekend..sold out etc…all bullshit seriously!

    Found out the master plan view from their sale house is totally difference compare to this website picture.
    Anyone has the updated one??

    artist impression can be fantastic

    PGkia :
    The launching plan was not the latest plan and this project was not fully approved by authority either. Due to rushing to launch this, any old plan can be the latest plan. Good luck for those who purchase this project.

    indeed true. the layout plan show dont know whether is approved etc. they may show something else in snp. assuming its signed soon? in 2 weeks time?

    Went to the sales office today.

    Based on the layout plan & building height, I believe the density is 30 units/acre.

    But the concept of 5 linear blocks with swimming pool at the centre is so common and not outstanding, and this parcel itself has no direct access to the sea, and is seperated by 4 lanes road from the future sea reclaimation land.

    My advise is to wait for the future phases…

    if we buy this project, when should we apply the loan from bank? Now or end of 2013? other than investor, i think some small number of buyers will have their loan rejected.

    If the actual development will only start later since it is a 4 year project, I think developer wants the buyer downpayment now to roll into their other projects. And any guarantee they will actually build it later, and if not, do they refund all the downpayment.
    Things look and sound fishy. Better look into other standard residential proj like Ideal VP, where the profit might not be as high as PWC but the risk is much lower.

    Don’t think there will be high profit for PWC. But one thing for sure, they will take 18 months to stamp the S&P. It is black and white in the S&P. They just want to “net” you so that you can’t run away.

    i checked the price, i saw the smallest unit which is 622 square fts asking for RM 486,404 (don’t know is after or before discount) which translate to RM 782 per square feet !!! it seems like within 3 days, the price has increased so much…

    Typical Ivory. Take forever to stamp the S&P. But ask for your downpayment within few days of booking. Sure “net” all the fish one. Then will slowly release some “booked” units to market with higher price, they shiok, investor club lagi shiok. They might take up to 18 months to stamp your S&P if not enough sales. I will definitely stay away from them, especially with this price.

Paying >RM500 for units 621sq?? Y guy must be seriously need to wake up. This is just my sincere input. The choice is yours!!

  187. topenag
    February 5th, 2013 at 22:08 | #187

    i think we cannot simply compare summerton/putraplace with pwc just based on leasehold and freehold or simply within the same area.

    Take example gurney silverton vs gurney paragon, Platino IJM vs Bayswater IJM, Simfornia 3ST by UDA vs Seri Tanjung Pinang 3ST by ENO… they are just nearby BUT the price and demands are totally different . . . . just my own thinking.

    Penang properties is more towards perceptions…… if it is a huge masterplan like Seri Tanjung Pinang (ENO), Light waterfron (IJM) and Penang WorldCity ( tropicana Ivory )…..all ppl rush to grab it.

    The problem is we can’t see the difference between PWC vs Gold Coast except for seaview for Gold Coast vs free hold for PWC. One is 500psft, the new one is 700psft.

    February 5th, 2013 at 23:07 | #190

    I also cannot see much difference between Platino Vs Bayswater .

    That is why i said penang property is towards perceptions. if more ppl think is better deal, then it will appreciate. But whether it can sustain or not, that is another question.

    Few years back when agent recommended me to buy Seri Tg Pinang 3ST at RM1 Mil, i said ” are you crazy RM1 mil for terrace with small car porch ” ? At that time you can buy a semi D at Tg tokong/Tg Bungah area for the same price or even lower. And now , It reaches RM1.8-2.0Mil……is even higher than old semi d in tg tokong/tg bungah.

    The questions now is whether PWC will appreciate better than gold coast or putra place in terms of % in 3-5 years time ?

    For Parcel 1A, the “macro” location is good, the “micro” location is bad…

    Some blocks next to highway just like Desa Putra, some next to the sometimes-smelly canal, and why are the units facing either west or east?

    I feel that it should be priced at 600-650psf, well, at this point of time.

    Developer playing the trick. At first the small units all sold out, but actually they want to create false perception that their prop is selling well. Now they throw more units out at higher price and let ppl rush into buying. Smart tactic. PWC will proceed only when they hv enough buyers n then get snp stamped. Once snp signed, buyers will be at their mercy.

    Purchased but not paid to State government yet… i.e. RM1 billion in debt.

    BTW, Phase 1A is not attractive, so why the rush?

    The Linear has much more potential, selling at RM550/sqf. only and still it’s sluggish in sub sale market.

    Overall, it’s HIGH RISK to invest in PWC now.

    Normally if there is a group of investors wanted to take up all the small units, they will at least select only the good facing units, not completely the whole block from bottom to top. Does not make sense, this indirectly sent the signal to everyone the developer is playing trcik to sell the bigger units when launching block c and d since they learn that the smallers units can be sold easily after block A and B. If the developer can use this to treat their customers, no matter how well the potential of the appreciation, all buyers stand at high risk position. Besides, are there no more property to buy or invest in Pg anymore wif we have the same extra fund ? If the answer is yes, then just proceed for PWC without further delay.
