    If you have an interested buyer, both of you can engage a lawyer to sign an agreement. It has to be stated clearly the agreed pricing, also the timeframe of transfer which is normally upon the oc of the unit. You can collect some deposit, but normally it should be held by the lawyer as stakeholder. There also would be some exit clauses in case either side wish to terminate the transaction.

    Pros is you can secure a buyer before oc to avoid competition from other sellers. Cons is the in-flexibility when factored in the future un-certainty, such as changes in the market price.

    I hope the developer does not simply choose small internet provider. Time or Telekom (Unifi) is a good choice I believe. I had experienced bad service by Home @FIbre in Cyberjaya even though it is free. Plus, YES by ytl is also very lousy.

    If we the buyers all request the developer to install an electric charge station for electric car and the developer does it, it will be a great bonus to buyers and a win for developer’s reputation. Don’t you think so?

    Is it TBR worth to buy? QB area already so crowded with all those current project + upcoming project. Now every Friday, Saturday Sunday traffic very teruk. Current property owner can just stuck at there for 15-30 minutes only reach their home. And for what I know, the road there are not going to expand and remain the same, thats means traffic only will getting worst.
    Upcoming project included penang world city 2 pieces of land between TBR & D residences, Quaywest residence infront baystar, a mix commercial beside qb carpark land, all those cincai cincai over 1xxx unit each project.
    For own stay, i’ve no comment. For investor, whats your exit plan which is need to compete with all those upcoming project, when all new project is complete one by one, your Bay Residence will become an old apartment already! Like Putra Place, Villa emas actually price are dropping

    A lot of buyer from Intel. The latest rumour is there is going to be ACT 2 ( layoff ) coming June/July. Roughly 10% of employee will be impacted in Malaysia according to the source who work closely with the labour department

  68. JJPTR
    May 12th, 2017 at 07:53 | #68


    Yes, more layoffs to come, not only Intel.


    Even at original selling price, I do not think it is worth the money. Penang is in deep shit now, more and more layoffs from productive sectors, resulting in more and more “recruitment” in pyramid scams. Every 1 in 3 people in Penang is in some way related to a pyramid scam, either a promoter, a salesman, a small business at M-mall, a worker at one of those stalls, or a financial victim. God save Penang!

    I heard this TBR will be completed in Sept 17′, but what i surprised to hear is we need to pay a so-called ‘Transfer Ownership Fee’ around Nov ’17, calculation of this fee as such :
    1st RM100k = 1%
    2nd RM101k – RM500k = 2%
    3rd RM501k & Above = 3%

    This may cost us up to RM20plus thousands for such fee…

    That should be the MOT (memorandum of transfer), u pay the money they issue strata title to you.

    New housing Act requires the developer to issue the strata title when OC. Not like last time can drag for 5-10 years after OC still haven’t complete the strata title issue/transfer.

    If some developer go bankrupt after that but strata title haven’t issue. GG liao.

  74. Calvin
    June 8th, 2017 at 14:09 | #74

    Thks Lam. I called up my lawyer firm already, she said usually this Strata Title transfer ownership fee will take around 1-2yrs time. My friend said nowadays it may take around 2mths time only, & the faster the better as we do not need to wait for longer time from developer to get it done when we want to sell it off…

    June 10th, 2017 at 17:26 | #75

    Get Quaywest better, 650 sq feet ranging from 200k, 300k to 400k (two parking lots, front and back). Ivory’s finishing (you know better than me). Although commercial title, but extra 100 sq ft. The bigger 1,000 sq feet, last time Ivory sell cheap, now price 700k (700 sq feet vs 909 sq feet). Same thing but a lot more expensive? Furthermore, the view was also blocked by Quaywest. No more seaview for Penang World City. I not a property agent and the above is my personal view only TQ

    Let’s pray since everyone know the TNB substation is there and will impact the resident health! Still Jacky are proud of it. Well, you can claim the facilities looks good, but it certainly not world class. Some common sense to weight on risk of health versus the looks good. Smart house owner will able to make the right choice
    Only bad investors will promote this properties and launch personal attack on those speaking out truth!!!

    Since both you of replied in English, it is meant you can read in English. Do yourself a favor, go and read this article as reference.
    Questions, is Bay Residence Worldcity within 300m of TNB substation? From my view, the nearest point is about 50m away. And remember the article said studies made is about 300m distance.
    You can also go to Lowyat chat forum to refer. And since you are staying in urban and not in jungle, I think you should look out for this health hazard as normally the funny part of mocking other people is to get personal gain. In this case, I don’t see how or what you can gain. Unless you have vested interest and desperate to cut loss. LOL!

    I’m visiting the 1st phase of WORLD CITY Tropicana BAY its indeed kind amazed by the outlook and world class facilities up to date…

    but the thing is i don’t see any sea RECLAMATION work start, not even
    any foundation for the suppose proposed SHOPPING MALL?

    not detected any huge construction lorry also..anyone got any latest updates from the developer Tropicana-IVORY?

    August 21st, 2017 at 17:15 | #108

    pwc :
    It is not power station! It is GIS substation ie electrical equipment to step down voltage in enclosed building…

    You can search for more details about how GIS is a technology used to lower the EMF.

    “The use of compact gas insulated or vacuum switchgear as compared to open or enclosed air insulated switchgear results in significantly lower magnetic fields due to a substantial reduction in phase separation distances.”

    “The compact design of gas insulated switchgear (GIS), as compared to open or enclosed air insulated switchgear substations, offers significantly lower magnetic fields due to a substantial reduction of the phase separation distances. A degree of magnetic shielding is also afforded by the gas filled enclosures.”

    FYI … if you are not aware, a typical high-rise building in Malaysia normally is equipped with high tension switching room, transformer room and low voltage switching room which are located at the upper floor of the buildings. The functionality is no different from the separated GIS building.

    Guys, to be honest I am searching for a home as I will be getting married end of the year. Wanted to get here at first because its new, location near to Queensbay and facilities more than enough (though a bit scared if maintaining them in good condition down the road might be problem). After much discussion with my fiance and family, we decided against buying here due to the uncertainty of staying next to TNB substation. I did Google on this issue but found contradicting reports. Some say ok, some say not. Therefore, we decided to be safe and not buy especially since we will be having babies in near future. No hard feelings. Just personal thought from a buyer’s perspective. New condo Vs health… At the end of the day we chose not to take the risk.

  114. Ryu
    September 15th, 2017 at 10:46 | #114

    @William, those people who bought this project already knew that there will be no seaview and this is still better option for those who looks for residential title and full condo facilities compared to Asia Green’s project.

  115. William
    September 15th, 2017 at 11:44 | #115


    Thats not what the sales manager told me. Many who bought especially the early birds did not know that Ivory was going to sell off the front land to Asia Green. After they found out many were unhappy

    Correct, initially that front land was Ivory’s phase 2 development, mana tau they sell to Asia Green. And best of the best is, Asia Green go build a long and flat condo on the land, just like a huge wall blocking all the TBR views……If u are TBR buyers, will you not angry/pissed ?

    Old story still talking about it after 4 years?
    Those who didn’t buy, move on to other developments which you think better, no need to come here and argue. Either you like the place so much but didn’t buy because of certain shortcomings, that’s why you are back again. Or your totally missed out buying at that time.
    You can argue and gloat till the cows come home, but what is the point?
    Those who bought, it is almost CCC now. Time for your next step.
    All projects have advantages and shortcomings.

    well.. to show displeasure over bad business practices by unscrupulous developers ah…
    yes it is too late for some, but it’s good to bring it up again so others are warned on their next purchase/investment on who are the honest good developers and who the hit and runs are ..

    to let developers know they cannot just get away with bad behavior. it should come back to bite them in the behind, one way or other..

  119. William
    September 15th, 2017 at 14:29 | #119

    @Old story

    Not putting up an argument here dude. Its a fact that many must be pissed. But what to do as you said, just swallow the pill and move on. Yes correct all projects have their shortcomings too but when you buy on the promise of a seaview that is quite a bitter pill to swallow. cheers

  120. Old story
    September 15th, 2017 at 14:34 | #120

    I think you are not really right. The sales staff did give precaution clearly that there will be more land reclamation in front. So with AG or not, it would have ended up the same as the project is all about an integrated PWC, which will involve land reclamation.

  121. Old story
    September 15th, 2017 at 14:53 | #121

    Buyers would have bought with calculated risk that here will be more land reclamation in front.

    If you want to bash the developer, you should made the remarks when the project was launched.
    The comments such as those from @William does not sound like trying to target the developer, but rather the stakeholders now.

    definitely elements of fraud, else there wont be any complaints from buyers … wonder why you are being so defensive.. cant folks vent? no freedom of speech? what does it matter when the displeasure is shown? is there a time limit on when someone can lodge a complaint? statutes of limitation? siao

  124. Old story
    September 15th, 2017 at 15:17 | #124

    Unless you are one of the unsatisfied stakeholders, I am not sure why you are so worked up.
    I am not being defensive, I just stating the fact … what I was told when I went the sales gallery 4 years ago. So it is all about calculated risk when you sign.
    If you are not a stakeholder, then I am surprised why you should spend your time to even comment.
    Seriously, whatever sea view this and that is less of a concern. It is about the integrated PWC.

  125. Old story
    September 15th, 2017 at 15:26 | #125

    Whether it is world class or not, it remains to be seen in the future, no one is claiming it here. We have not seen the workmanship, the management etc, so no point arguing now. It could be good or bad.

    I am just trying to correct the perception of whatever sea view this and that.

  126. Old story
    September 15th, 2017 at 16:10 | #126

    The success of PWC largely depends on whether Tropicana-Ivory can continue building the integrated development plan of PWC, with plenty of land reclamation to be done.

    If they are not able to do continue, but continue to sell pieces of land here and there, then PWC will not succeed and this phase (1A) will just remain as a normal residential development rather than an integrated township/city.

  127. ranee
    September 16th, 2017 at 00:40 | #127

    To be fair to Ivory, the sales team DID NOT mentioned TBR is sea-view but DID mentioned the land in front of TBR will be another project which not belonged to Ivory.

    The time was Dec 2014 when I made a booking but later I did cancelled due to some reason.

    What Ivory promised at earlier stage I had no idea.

    The market sentiment was very good when this project was launched, buyers bought with very bullish outlook. They were mostly paying RM800-900/sf, thinking that by the time it is completed, they can flip it at RM1200/sf. Easy money, no need to work, just sit there and wait, money printing machine on auto mode, all the wishful thinking. In 6 months time, I will update everyone here on the number of loan defaults for this project. It will be ugly.

    I’m not sure about others, but I really don’t have anything personal against the project/developer/agents/sales-staff/MD/JV-partner and whatnots. If it’s going to be zero default, I will say zero default. If it’s 100, I will say 100. Just facts, nothing personal. But I feel it will be ugly. Be prepared.

  137. Market soft
    September 21st, 2017 at 17:35 | #137

    Really beh tong …

    For the pleasure of haters, you will like this … there are several listings which are looking to sell at very low profit margin. This may soothe your grudge against the project. Or maybe not enough, you will want them sell at a lost.

    To haters, have a happy time looking and hunting.

    Many people can’t even be bothered to look at developments that they are not interested. But for some others, it is a pleasure when they see misfortunes …

  138. Malcolm
    September 21st, 2017 at 19:20 | #138

    I think I recall this project was under DIBS. This means some buyers might have over leverage on their loan. So the risk of people selling off due to instalment paying issue will be higher.

    @homo will love to know the loan default number!

Unit height also taller than expected. Only one place in the unit I didn’t expected it to be, the yard. Smaller than expected lol.

    One of the ex-visitor car park ended up with at least one senior member of committee members.

    One owner brought up the matter of 8 ex-visitors car park already labelled as such were subsequently converted into private car parks during recent AGM but Mr Ho was quiet and now we know where did they go to.

    This is at least an immoral gain by recipients. The car parks belong to ALL Owners as they were intended to be so. The developer should not have profited them in the 1st place. Even if the developer chooses to do so, the car parks should be opened to all and subject to proper evaluation to justify who are the owners they should be sold to. In any way, I failed to see why they should profit from this at the cost of ALL OWNERS?

    Can the senior committee member justify this?

    While we criticize our brother Jho Low for his misconduct in IMDB and how sucks is our developer, are we looking at similar behind the scenes act by some or all committee members too (who were very active and handed out piece of paper asking owners’ to withhold stakeholders’ funds)?

    How many generation of committee members are needed to make things straight all over Malaysia?
