    Tropicana 128 macalister already sell up to RM1000psf..Why not PTS condo also? I think base on market trend..PTS condo next year january will get at least RM720psf minimum..Meaning..Phase 1 1050sqf price minimum RM740k above and follow by phase 2 minimum price for 950sqf is RM700k above also.

    @condomana
    What do you think? Is that truth? I hear many still hold the unit from let go especially for phase 1…Until next year january only let go with better price..seen PTS condo price increase very soon around 730k??

    @JJ,

    I have no idea about this McD thing although I wont be surprised. Just look at Gurney/TTokong, you have 3 McDs within a short perimeter of 3 km. All doing good business. I am sure there is market for another McD in PTS. If they can make it a drive-thru even better…:) Although personally I would keep my children away from it as they serve mostly junk….:)

    @JJ,

    The bigger issues coming for PTS condos will be the uncertainty facing PTS mall. If the mall fails, all the condos will go down with it.

    @condomana
    I understand what you are trying to say. Any how PTS will be still a good place to stay due to good location. Even PTS shopping mall fail also…the value will be still that. Maybe just not that much..Anyhow in georgetown area…still have very much potential..As long as phase 3,4 and 5 is success..then that is still a way for PTS to pick up quite fast..

    Simple to say..if shopping mall fail..very less shop..meaning PTS condo value will still follow the market price..

    If success then the price sure will wipe up and up..which is good for invester and speculators. For those who buy for own stay..should not have any issue.. Because those stay at PTS condo is prefer their location is convenient actually to them..

    Probably we can see the result in 3 to 4 years time to come…Keep monitoring..

  10. Yeah
    September 14th, 2013 at 14:57 | #10

    @JJ
    I agree that PTS is only half way and plenty to grow in next 3 to 4 years time. But major issue for PTS is the shopping mall at phase1 and 2..who is going to fill up all the empty slot?
    PTS condo actually doing very well in market actually. But shopping center is the long long project issue to solve. No shop lots open at downstair let PTS catergorize as “Fail” to all the invester actually.

    In short to say..PTS condo is not very good to invest to make fast money for investment..All the project by ivory is slow pace project..Those who can hold for longer time for PTS unit probably will see their higher return after PTS project all phase was completed. But those who just want to make quick money for “The Wave”..Forget it..it is not a good choice to invest..

    September 16th, 2013 at 20:15 | #16

    @kabutol
    Yes..At first i also wonder and shock when hear about this..This is due to “The Wave” phase 3 going revise the price and to start kick off the contruction build already by this december. 1 of my agent friend say that most of the owner..they are waiting december or next year january to release and revise their unit with better price..3 bedroom will go for 750k minimum for partially furnish..and 720k minimum for 2 bedroom..

  17. hello
    September 16th, 2013 at 23:07 | #17

    @lee
    Yes. Since new project “The Wave” is just beside of phase 1 and 2..So the price of phase 1 and 2 will have slightly increase due to all this condo is located very near to each other.

  18. hello
    September 16th, 2013 at 23:10 | #18

    @lee
    The price of condo at phase 1 and 2 will have slightly increase due to phase 3 the wave already start the job. No surprice to the old building around will increase due to all is located quite near to each other..Birch plaza&birch regency will have increase around 10% by end of december or earlier of 2014..

    September 18th, 2013 at 08:04 | #20

    @KK Tan
    Good price..still below 700psf..After phase 3 start to build on Nov or dec…Then no more 6XXk already..All is above 720k..

  21. lee
    September 18th, 2013 at 08:06 | #21

    @welson
    If the price is below 700k now still good to buy for future investment..If next year onwards..it is too much over 700k..

    @lee
    I think all the property in times square which covered phase 1 and 2 will have escalating of price after budget 2014 announce..around 5 to 10%…Thats why we can see every1 is holding back their unit to wait for the better sale by this november onward especially phase lll was going to start the job…

    Property of times square is dead for investor and speculator…but good for own stay actually. Condo in town will never dead..Only the investor which ever can not earn the money or gain some quick money will feel is dead. If for those who want for own stay will feel good on that. To be honest..Ivory project is not good for investment..

    Currently all the speculator or investor already run away from PTS to PWC..Even the shoplot was a failure to them also..

    As for buyer..is only for own stay..Quite many of them buy for own stay instead of invest right now..No point to invest in PTS anymore..If you looking for own stay yea…cheersss..if you looking for speculate..please…stay away…

    September 22nd, 2013 at 18:05 | #30

    @Chan

    A property for investor or own stay is still the same. For own stay you
    still pay for the market price. Are you paying cheaper because for own
    stay ? This condo in town is dead.

    This property I heard a lot of complaints. Even Sunshine supermarket
    was given free rental for 2 years also cannot survived !!! This evaluation
    will be more than enough for anyone to decide.

    PTS is a failure but is not dead. McD will not save PTS. More traffic jam will only happen die to drive through. Personally PTS has a good chance to revive again. Takes time! Lots of time!To me, dead places are places like shineville park at farlim which built on dead ground. Its worst investing there than PTS. PTS still got hope no matter what because its at the city center! Location matters no matter what.

  45. Believe
    September 22nd, 2013 at 21:49 | #45

    People say when you start praying you might got hope, not because PTS
    is at the city center you got hope !!!!. Is it consider dead only when an
    earthquake bring it down ?

    I don’t think you have any property just in S’pore by the way you commented
    the way you look at a location.

  46. tww
    September 22nd, 2013 at 22:08 | #46

    Come on guys, just think as if the commercial development never ever existed, the residential development alone at this location still have a fair share of appreciation opportunity and worth to invest. They are not selling at >-1000psf as nearby projects did, I got mine The Wave at only 600psf which is very reasonable, i don’t worry at all.

    Just treat this commercial development as a bonus, sucessful or not it does not change the fact that this whole project is at a superb location. Mcdonald, Cinema, entertainment city will definitely help to bring in crowdand thats for sure.

    September 22nd, 2013 at 22:29 | #47

    @tlt
    Those phase 2 we can see the light very well from outside even you stand at the parking area of PTS and head up have a look from that u can know how many was that or not that. As for phase 1..Most of the light you won’t see it as the glass of window is in black colour..and most of the unit window have curtain..Thus you will only have see all in dark if the owner not open the curtain..Thanks! But seriously..occupy rate of PTS condo is very high actually was around 80%..But the shop lot..no doubt to say is a failure..

  48. jun
    September 22nd, 2013 at 22:32 | #48

    @tlt
    One more things i notice that you are right…resident car park is not friendly at all..narrow track need to round and round to upstairs..The wave phase 3 was going to be the same concept..This is the issue for the condo..The rest still fine for me..

    @HUAT
    What you are saying is absolutely correct..Thumb up for you with great point. SVP for me is definitely a place for poor investment..unless you are buying for own stay. For PTS no matter how the location is the superb one and no argue that plenty of improvement needed inorder to make it a real successful land mark. Any how the condo still very much and good for investment. The condo will just follow the market..price..If shopping mall phase 3 is doing well and jusco opening..and cinema is that..All of this will be extra bonus for the condo and it will be very good in value in future this is for sure..No harm also if the shopping is fail..as it will still remain the same..If success then it is extra bonus and which ever all the normal condo don’t have..

  51. Chan
    September 22nd, 2013 at 22:46 | #51

    PTS condo will get appreciation with average of increasing price around 6 to 8% minimum. You can see phase 1..going to approach 700k minimum soon by this year dec..And phase 2 was at 660k minimum after this..

    September 22nd, 2013 at 23:01 | #54

    @jun

    Well, many bought PTS with the hope of seeing the success at the commercial, same for the Wave. I am still skeptic about your 80% occupancy rate. Will see how McD and Cinema can save PTS. My main concern is still about too few residential area around. Business won’t survive.

  55. tlt
    September 22nd, 2013 at 23:07 | #55

    @CY

    PTS is surrounded by old shop lots, and is not within the Unesco Heritage zone, which will hardly able to reinvent. Not sure which part of it makes you say it is a good location.

  56. jun
    September 22nd, 2013 at 23:12 | #56

    @tlt
    Thanks for sharing. I agree what you say..initially most of buyer or investor buy the condo with the hope ivory can bring in the success for the commerical area. Maybe you can try to have a lot on the phase 2..quite many of them is local owner..

    Can you be more detail regarding on too few residential area around? Base on phase 1,2 and 3 condo..

    Phase 1 have around 380 unit
    Phase2 have around 330 unit
    Phase 3 have around 310 unit.

    Total up it was around 1000 unit of condo in only PTS area which is not include the suit and office around and all the pre war shoplot around..And one more is the 5 star hotel which also a part of PTS development..The 5 star hotel will have more tourist to bring in to times square area to add in the business opportunity in this area.

    We will still able to see the price of PTS condo still increasing from time to time due to surrounding new project was launching from RM1000sqf latest one was from tropicana macalister 218..So PTS condo was still in reasonable price and good to buy actually for those who keen to stay in town..I never promote anything..Just share my thought. Thanks.

    September 22nd, 2013 at 23:27 | #59

    Current phase 1 and 2 and all the shop lots around is proven not enough to sustain the commercial. Not going to work when phase 3 complete, with even more empty commercial space.

    @tlt
    Phase 1 and 2 shoplot is been sold out to investor and buyer which is not under Ivory management proper care. So the style is more or less similar to prangim mall style..

    But phase 3..all the shop lot will not be sold to anyone. And the phase 3 shopping center is under purely own by Ivory management..Which shoplot going to fill up at phase 3 already finalise by ivory. And this is why also..the date of phase 3 kick off date was delay to end of this year which was initially planning on May to be started the job. Jusco actually already sign the deal with Ivory to slot in at phase 3..

  62. Jess
    September 22nd, 2013 at 23:57 | #62

    Now still early to judge either PTS is confirm fail or how..Still have many development to go untill the end only we can give the correct justification..What i can actually say is now Phase 1 and 2 were only just 35% of entire PTS..The balance 65% which included the hotel also..we can justify in 3 to 4 years to come after completion. But for sure is Ivory will never let PTS to go down..

  63. ST
    September 23rd, 2013 at 00:08 | #63

    September 23rd, 2013 at 11:01 | #64

    @Jess
    Thats right, Ivory will never let PTS down! Why, it is because their reputation is on the line. They screw up at first. No doubt. But future is still unknown. A few more years will show when everything is fully up and running. The location at city center will never go wrong. Location matters alot. Mostly i’ll say residential near or in the city will be ok. Because city center is the center of a state! With commercial lots for opportunity to do business means opportunity to recover. So thats why i feel that PTS will be ok. No matter the building is already there.

    Shineville park on the other hand is purely residential which is excellent for own stay. But its the worst investment ever Because of its previous inhabitants. The location is bad with jam and noise pollution although it is not city center. No commercial as well. With that price tag currently requested by greedy subsale investor, i doubt anyone will be interested. In fact, PTS will be a better choice! PTS has potential and opportunity. SVP is a dead place!

  65. HUAT
    September 23rd, 2013 at 11:15 | #65

    Just a simple comparison, 750k for SVP – 1600sqft (below dead land) or 750k for the wave – 1200sqft (below/nearby commercial lots cum shopping mall) at city center? As a penangites, surely better avoid dead land and go for shopping center although both jam! But as a foreigner, just mention the key word “city center” you will get the business and close the deal. If you say farlim – ex kubor, aiyo.. Foreigner terus turn the head away. I mean nowadays property prices are sky high! At times subsale investment depends on foreigner too. You know well what attracts them. Key words – LOCATION!

    He thought he is smart. Everything he said he thought was right. Have

    is limited if you bring along your RM 750k,you will not be able to buy a
    HDB flat of 99 yrs. leasehold cemetery land.

    A 699 sq. ft. flat will cost you SGD 390k and 1130 sq.ft is around SGD 450k-

    Bishan in singapore is an old ex-cemetery land. Now it is a matured estate where thousands lived there. Woodleigh is the same but now it is progressing. Can see condo n landed coming up. Shoebox are quite popular in sgp. Basically the best investment of rental return with low initial quantum for condo. These are all norms in sgp. Singapore is a country. Many foreigners with good income renting and they dont mind if its cheap if the land is outskirt.

    But in penang, these are all yet to be accepted. As a state, we are doing quite good. MNCs are plentifull. But the wages are a question. Housing interest are doubled of sgp housing. Low entry is an important factor to own a hse. With so many land still available as compare to sgp, people or first time or subsale buyers are spoilt with choices! 750K are able to get a 3 room flat in woodlands but 30yrs old. Thats sgd300k which is reachable among many sporeans and pr with average SGD4k income. But with average salary of RM4k, RM750k is tough.That is where low entry will ease the ownership at first. Not subsale of a Terrible location and plot of land like SVP.

    If want to compare, compare property in penang only. If want to compare property in sgp, then might as well include comparison from hk, taiwan, japan.. Even philipines or indonesia. You know about singapore property doesn’t make you king unless you are a global player. But yet, this about penang property. Deadland is a minority choice.

    @HUAT

    I have different interpretation about the city center. For Komtar area, I think it is only a administrative center, with limited economy activities. Most cities are having new and old side of the town, and I think Georgetown is and old town with low population. To make it happening again, unless demolish most of the old building there.

    And to me, Pulau Tikus and Tanjong Tokong is more happening with higher upper class population. And Farlim is having higher middle class population. And the mix of population is growing from Weld quay to Jelutong, Queensbay and South bay in future. And Bayan Baru/ Bayan Lepas are highly populated with FIZ working class people.

    So, the “city center” (Komtar area) is really hardly attracting higher population, in fact, it is loosing it’s population. So, I am not sure if this “city center” is still consider a good location. I see many cars just pass by the “city center” only, and make the traffic very bad.

    Are you very new to this forum or you have been missing out the thread which was removed from SVP forum? Those key player from that forum is now here in this forum condemning PTS.
    They will do anything to keep their investment alive when its already dead long time ago. Good try reviving the dead And make people BELIEVE of what they do not know. I will make sure the history of the land of SVP be known to everyone I know!!Nothing wrong with telling people about the TRUTH! PTS is a good project. Just mis-queue on the first run. It will be better!

    SVP is suitable for those looking for bigger space for own condo-staying with a reasonable price-tag while do not mind the location. I am not discriminating against Air Itam area, but it is a clear fact that this is not a posh area with bad traffic, poor neighborhood, cemetery-surroundings, and certainly poor rental demand.

    City center, Georgetown in this case is totally different, you guys are not comparing apple to apple. It is well-connected to all areas such as north to gurney-tg tokong, west to air itam, east to heritage&new new promenade, and south to bayan lepas. It is the governance center and all public offices and amenities are made available including transportation. In the future, if there is going to be monorail/tram or whatever, it is almost certain that there will be one nearly PTS if not directly in front of it like we see in the old Masterplan. It is only a short distance walk to the heritage zone, while at the same time you get to enjoy the modern shopping amenities such as pragin/1st avenue/komtar/pts all within the same radius. When come to food, you will be spoilt of choice as you have good mix of hawkers and fine-dinings just within foot-step, asian/fusion/western you name them. If your kids are going to high school, you will know how strategic it is to stay in this area, as compared to area like bayan lepas.

    PTS still very much potential..Depend on ivory how to manage for phase 3,4 and 5..More to go i can say..SVP is fix at that location…no more change in next 3 to 4 year already. However PTS still have chance to reorganise and develop to become more and more in next 3 to 4 years to see..Lets keep an eye on this..I don’t think ivory will let this PTS landmark to go down like this..

    PTS had potential but Ivory are a poor developer, the inside of PTS is awful. Yes i know the prices was cheap at the begining but Ivory used the cheapest fixtures and finishings you could find. Generally the whole surrounding is rundown and until most of it is renovated or bulldozed, why would anyone want to live there when there are so many other great places to live

    However..Ivory first decision to sell their shoplot at phase 1 and 2 was the failure already at the beginning..Because it causing PTS look down now..But still have chance to get back since phase 3,4 and 5 still on the way.

    I’m sorry if I brought the misunderstanding into this forum. But I can’t help it when I saw hypocrite from SVP (refer comment above #23,24,39,42,45) coming into PTS and condemn this place. Its easy to detect such hypocrite because they are very sensitive towards words like “SVP, Cemetery, emotional, rotten investment and etc) because these words are somehow attached to them forever. I really pity this investors. But not their hypocrisy and intention to bring others down together with him. Its like i jump i’ll drag u along but if u jump i see. Let that man alone BELIEVE over his leap of no faith to rotten decay buried deep down the very earth investment.

    The day will come when PTS will be awesome. Maybe need to renovate the entire mall to have a higher ceiling concept for the shoplots or even having new management. No matter what, city center location will be ok! Because i’ll be honest, if PTS location is at air itam i’d say maybe more difficult to recover. But Now PTS location is the best!

  88. HUAT
    September 23rd, 2013 at 22:33 | #88

    PTS has huge potential! Be it for residential or commercial. The location itself is already a huge potential. Once the monorail hooked up PTS as one of the network in penang, I am sure things will be different! With all phases completed, PTS will be a place that bring everyone together. Shopping, dining, entertainment, banking and etc are all under single place. 5mins walk will bring you to hawker, nearby shoplots, gama (if you walk fast enough). Bus station at komtar not too far away too. So convenient yet affordable! Unit sizes are reasonable too. Go everywhere also convenient because its the city center. What else you can ask for? Well maybe a better managed mall and perhaps a better road where possible. It will be perfect for own stay and investment!

    In singapore, wheather it is new launched condo or subsale condo, a solid 20% dpymt and approx 3% stamp duty is payable. Now there is Additional Buyer stamp duty at 5 to 10%.
    If this rules implements in malaysia, you’ll see subsale picking up on par with new launch.

    In penang, new launched condo mostly comes we rebates where dpymt could be as low as 1%, free legal fees and etc. what it means is huge savings and easy low entry. Many will be able to afford. For subsale, a solid 10% dpymt and other misc like legal fees, stamp duty and etc. That requires higher lum sump payment for subsale.

    1) new home buyer prefer new launch. Why? Low entry. Free this and that. Get to choose units and if buy during property fair got free car park. Ohya DIBS given too at times.

    2) Those who cannot wait, then subsale is their preference. That is where your agent or yourself needs to be a good salesman. When the young and innocent couple knew the history of the land, the surrounding, the jam, the LMC right beside the ever famous SVP, I am sure they will think twice, maybe no need to think. At RM750k, they have plenty of choice. They could even settle for a shoebox at light collection. Its big enough for two person.So much choice! I recall a post in property guru for a DST at relau at RM760k. Can get landed!!! So why SVP? Can’t think of anything except big, but then DST also big!

  91. HUAT
    September 24th, 2013 at 13:43 | #91

    Nowadays many young gen couples prefer a place call home with lifestyle! Not dead style!
    Even small families prefer a home near to school and places they work where majority is in city center or bayan lepas. Relau area will be popular. City center also ok. Public buses all goes to komtar. Perfect for those murid murid who uses bus awam. PTS is strategically located on a convenient spot in penang! To some extend, even the shoplots dont work out, the residential units are still ok! If state gov are capable to build the monorail, lagi bagus!

    I very agree to what you have say..750k we can have many choice to choose from..SVP i don’t think have buyer wish to buy at that price..Currently sub sale market was in range of 650k to 700k..Ppl have more choice to choose with this kind of price.. PTS is one of the best also i can stay for those who want to stay at town area. After the wave already completed plus the hotel then overall will completely different already..

All those place is great to stay and enjoy entertainment surrounding..Hunza of gurney paragon looks making quite successful for this project..although shopping center for me..just so so..Hope Ivory will learn from them..and make PTS to be come successful..in next 3 year to come as PTS seen is rather a bigger project compare to paragon..Plenty to develop for PTS..Hope PTS will bring up the status and image of new Georgetown..

    Nowadays, those new launch projects easily fetch a whopping RM500psf at minimum on average. Prime area easily RM1000psf. Proof can be seen easily. Tropicana 218 as example. The loft. Even Quaywest residence. Some say the price for phase 1 of PTS should be RM750psf now. I’d say it will be even higher.
    I never doubt the fact that everything has ups and down. Because the economy stability will affect the progress of a state or a country. But eventually, PTS shall be an icon of georgetown! Together with so much heritage and other unique features of our lovely penang, PTS will be popular. A drive down from dato keramat towards the town, stand tall the residential high rise condominiums of PTS right at the heart of Georgetown.
    Ivory may have not perform as expected, but they learned their lesson and the best decision made was to purchased these plot of land many years back. A revamp of the mall is a potential way to revive the place. Difficult, but not impossible. At the end of the day, I trust, by 2020 (7yrs from now), Penang Times Square will be perfect!
    Time will prove PTS worthiness!

    After the underground tunnel from Gurney to Jetty completed, less people will drive through Georgetown already. Now I have to pass through it because no choice. In fact, event now from Tun Lim Express to Pulau Tikus also only pass through Komtar, not PTS. Even though I pass through PTS, still not stop by. PTS really need something extra-ordinary to attract the crowd. I think if they lease it cheap to someone like IKEA, maybe got hope.

  103. HUAT
    September 25th, 2013 at 17:58 | #103

    How I wish Ikea can drop by PTS for northern side sector. Though I think IKEA might prefer mainland as they’ll be able to build the whole place in accordance to their specs. PTS layout is fix. Unless they revamp it to be more attractive. I hope Ivory is reading this thread. They must know that we have faith in PTS success! So they can even strive harder.

    @Urgent
    Most of the buyer at PTS is still confident that Ivory still manage to turn around PTS by learning their fail lesson previously. PTS is not fully completed yet and manage phase and mix development still on going. Still have chance and potential for PTS since more to go for PTS and location was superb at the city.

    Commercial property at phase 1 and 2 was the failure but that is still have chance to do correction..since so many phase still on going. Most of the local buyer was confident with their investment on the condo..Majority from phase 2 was own stay by localize and phase 1 also..And 1 more things is..PTS condo..still i can say in range of market value…compare to new launch project in city town area example 218 tropicana was in RM1000psf..So plenty much to grow in condo market price..Honestly say..i still can see the potential of PTS and ivory will never let it down for sure..Although is bitter now..but later who know it might be sweet later on. Now phase 1 and 2 was only 45% of entire PTS..so 55% we can still monitor..No harm to invest on that also..especially condo..If PTS success then just take it as extra bonus..If fail..no harm..just look it as normal condo..and the location is quite convenient anyway..

    Can anyone share the design of carpark for phase 3? Are they follow the design like phase 1 and 2 with narrow track and need to turn so many round before reaching the car park lot?

    I like the location of Penang Times Square and the house with nice environment too. But the Car park is a big concern for me. Can any one share on this?

    December 6th, 2013 at 00:16 | #170

    Im a resident in PTS phase 2. PTS 2 is actually 100% sold out and own by some body and i can say it about 80% occupied. I guess if you don’t see light at night is normal because more of the resident here is using the black out curtain to get more privacy. Living here is super convenience to get every where. I think this is one of the worth buying condo in town.

    December 6th, 2013 at 13:13 | #171

    Ivory office move to the entertainment City area in the rear. Times Square is nice to walk around however the empty shop lot kind of SAD to look at. Great location with very bad take up on the shop lot. Other than that, it’s a good place to stay. Now have to walk to GAMA. Just thought why not Ivory make GAMA a great offer and have them open in Times Square and sold the GAMA lot for another high rise condo.

    Condo for me is very nice. But the question is how ivory going to make the shopping mall become better compare to now.. And why the wave still no progress?? Due to phase shopping center planning so delay???

    I can see most of the owner can sell their times square house at RM700k above…now. Maybe it is due to location

    December 10th, 2013 at 18:17 | #178

    Haven’t you guys seen the reply from an owner at shineville park? He couldn’t find a buyer for his property for three months already. Even though the impulsive owners regards their investment highly but the truth turns out to be painful. But the wave has a huge advantage due to city center location. So even though hard to sell, it will be easier compare to shineville park.

  179. Hard to sell
    December 10th, 2013 at 19:17 | #179

    Even 10 months also normal for such a price but a few owners in Times
    Square haven’t sold their units yet for more than 2 years. I had gone
    through Shineville’s site and the point is the whole project of this condo
    is not completed yet. Are you comparing Times Square which was completed
    4 years back to SVP ?

    As i know from agent, original unit latest sell transaction was RM640k for original unit..And i want to find a unit at phase 1 with budget around RM600k.Hopefully can get one.. Anyone can introduce? I choose this condo it is because of it located at center of town and it is easy for my parent. And they prefer to stay at town area.

    from Owner experience, i sold mine for 600K Phase-2. it took me 3 months to find the right buyer. If you are in a hurry, anything below 600k will be a bargain. Don’t listen to rumor and anyone that’s not from Times Square. Paper money is not worthiness much in the future. If you can afford, your house will retain better value than having bunch of cash in FD.

    What a big fuss about McD?

    McD will not attract outside/foreign crowd. There are many McD in Penang.

    You need some new big guys (not in Penang) to come like IKEA.
