    So I received e-mail about the launch tmr for the final block on TBR. I wonder how much and what kind of unit size will be sold. Any idea anyone?

    At least good thing no affordable nor flat within the same perimeter.

  57. blkF
    February 6th, 2015 at 17:34 | #57

    Smallest 400sf and biggest 800sf. As advertised 400sf cheapest 454k less 10% + 5% + 1.5%. Net from about 380k. Semifurnish. Seem lower psf than 455 studio.

  58. koo

    February 7th, 2015 at 15:58 | #63

    whole block is studios and 1+1 bedroom….not cheap though….

    The Light Collection-2 studio also got no demand…

  64. rabacop
    February 7th, 2015 at 16:27 | #64


    No real demand at all for these units from genuine home occupiers. You can only sell this type of crap to speculators. This is small town Penang, not the Big Apple New York.

    And in the meantime, Ivory (the company who cooked up the whole Penang World City bullsh*t) is planning it’s exit from Penang, while Tropicana is owing creditors too much money.

    God bless Penang World City.

  65. Lam
    February 7th, 2015 at 17:31 | #65

    It’s obviously better value for 400 sqft. Price around 380k, semi furnished, better layout. Much much better than the 450 sqft previously launched.

  68. Lol
    February 7th, 2015 at 21:20 | #68

    The 455sft studio unit has a kitchen. So it’s semi furnished as well. Nevertheless, the extra rm40k for a smaller unit of 400sft is certainly not worth it. I am not sure how you see it as better because investment wise it is certainly not logical. Besides, it doesn’t take much to Reno a 400 or 455sft. So the extra money paid for a smaller unit is certainly not worth it.

  69. tomyam
    February 7th, 2015 at 22:28 | #69

    back from the sales office.. seems the 800 sf unit sticker up more ..
    400 /500 sf still lots to choose..
    Price before discount
    400 sf (lowest from 453900 to max 485900)
    550 sf (lowest from 604900 to max 636900)
    800 sf (lowest can’t see as sticker up to max 847000)

    380k for 400k plus semi furnish with kitchen .. I think is ok la.. coz not much people can catch the first block A/B deal.
    Just that this is really for super small family, either single, new married couple. Not for family.

    Every developer will do the same thing.
    This is so called “Kang Tau”.

  83. kutu
    February 8th, 2015 at 22:11 | #83

    Whether “kang Tau”or nor, it depends on timing. But the main purpose of doing so is to get the bank providing the bridging loan for the project to release money to developer. The banker for the project releases money based on the % units sold to manage risk. Without the money, developer might have problem paying contractors and suppliers, unless it is super cash rich, which probably is not the case here.

  84. kok
    February 9th, 2015 at 09:43 | #84

    Seems like the profit of this condo project is still very high since they can give such high discount. Don’t know why most developers still claim that the cost is too high for new projects.

    Do you realize that with the RM350k that you pay for this shoebox unit, you can stay at a 5-star hotel in penang 30 days every year for 30 years? And over that 30 years, you can stay at all the different hotels, new hotels at prime locations. Whereas if you buy an apartment for holidays, you’d have to stay in the same apartment over and over again over the 30-year period. Worst still, by the 10th year, your apartment is already almost old. And if you think you can sell it later if you get tired with it, please think again. No one is going to buy an old shoebox apartment from you.

  92. pwc
    February 10th, 2015 at 11:18 | #92

    You have valid points. I told my friends the same when my friends bought studios at Light collection few years back but now…

  93. chun
    February 10th, 2015 at 11:28 | #93


    Yes i know, most buyers who bought The Light have big regrets. Apart from the dust caused by highway and the never ending construction around it, it seems to be far away from everywhere. It’s neither near to the heritage area, nor the famous scenic batu feringgi coast line. That probably explains why most units are vacant,even during the holiday periods.

  94. Stella
    February 10th, 2015 at 13:28 | #94

    Wow, for an instance, I was about to cancel my 455sq ft bought at RM310K after long Q/fights in Penang Times Square. Chun, you are good. Really. Compare with 5 star hotel rate, etc etc.

    But, wait a minute. I am also the first owner of D-Piazza Condo. Bought from developer.
    Early price was RM240K for a 1300sq ft. At that time, more idiots like you, Chun with all sort sour grapes comments, every thing is not right, even location at Bayan Baru also they were capable of producing negative comments…….Simply stupid to buy D-Piazza Condo
    And now, if I were to let go my D-Piazza Condo which was rented out from OC until now-I earned RM400K cash profits. Nett.

  95. pwc
    February 10th, 2015 at 14:06 | #95

    Actually it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that 5-star thingy, all you need is common sense and basic maths. But it was very brave of you to admit that it was something really worth noting. However, maybe next time you should not use your sour grapes accusation so early because people normally do that towards the end of an argument when they run out of sensible facts to reason.

    Buying a condo for vacation is like paying for your hotel room stays 30-years in advance.

    I would draw a parallel between this and time-sharing vacation membership, Leisure Holidays. Not sure if you are old enough to have heard of it, but it was “sold” as a good “investment” during the 80s.

    You pay a one big lump sum to purchase the membership that can be resold later at a profit, while enabling you to stay at affiliated hotels all around the world for free when you’re a member.

    It was a popular investment scheme during the late 80s. But today, most of these affiliated properties are so old and run down that you wouldn’t want to stay there even it’s free. Making a profit for selling your membership? Dream on! Oh by the way, Leisure Holidays was a Berjaya product. Hehe.

    With the invention of internet hotel bookings, hotel rates have never been cheaper and making a reservation has never been easier.

    Chun, after 30 years, you can pass the hotel room to your grandchildren or not?
    Like that, you can rent house forever la. No need to buy la as you can change your house every 2 years. What an idiot pretending to be smart

    Stella, i was there during soft launch.
    I believe you are the first group, already there from 5.30am, as i was told by one of your group members. Good for you to grab the limited edition 455sq ft at low price.

    Your D-Piazza condo purchase also a good investment decision which comes once in a life time.

    I got the email on last friday. I think my loan thingy is ready. CTS should disburse the progressive payment when they receive the cert from Tropicana Ivory.

    I hope above 48months. Im not in the rush at all.

  111. islander_ori
    March 17th, 2015 at 07:51 | #111

    I bought end of 2013 and signed the loan documents last year.
    It is pending for the state consent letter from developer according to the lawyer (not CTS).
    How about yours?

  112. islander_ori

    March 17th, 2015 at 08:27 | #113


    Original have the same thinking like you as I am even in DIBS scheme. No payment until project ready. But the best should be project on track, not too fast and not too slow. Fast $$ not yet print out all yet, slow we might have other worries like project abandoned if there is any economy crisis. So on track is the best.

  114. Joe
    March 17th, 2015 at 16:29 | #114

    Will check tomorrow.
    But through my experience, lawyer only work on this loan topic when developer start asking for money. So should be ok.

    Yes sir. Left 30months to completion!

  115. Joe
    March 17th, 2015 at 16:31 | #115

    You still have to serve interest for MRTA and lawyer fees if all included in the loan package. DIBS will not cover that. It will start when first disbursement done by bank to developer. I received a call from bank today.

    hi all,

    can someone help me understand how the DIBS interest pay by developer?
    is it they will help to clear the interest every month or they will one time off clear the interest when reach certain stage?
    coz I receive maybank letter indicate the interest charge for the first 10% disbursement already.. so I wonder in actual when developer will pay

  133. islander_ori

  135. tomyam
    April 16th, 2015 at 10:02 | #135

    No. I dun see that. I only see this 2 transaction.
    Ivory should pay the item MONTHLY INTEREST. But until now did not see they pay yet. Yesterday I got call Ivory billing dept and they say they are in progress to made payment on it.
    Teoratically since we are in DIBS, we should not pay anything so that we can very clearly see which one is the interest charge.

    Btw, what is RTA stand for?

    MONTHLY INTEREST RMXX.XX (Interest of first month)

  136. islander_ori
    April 16th, 2015 at 14:46 | #136

    Its been a long time since the launch of TBR and until now only A-F is open for sale.

  144. tbr
    April 29th, 2015 at 14:52 | #144

    Looking at the progress of the construction, it is running full steam now. If they can sustain the same speed, it should be no problem to complete within the next 3 years.

    As for the future development, especially commercial, it is still no news as of now. At least I heard that they are currently submitting plan to build another sales gallery, within the PWC precinct. To cater for what purpose is still unknown, but as there is already an existing grand sales office in place, this can indicate another development is coming up.

  145. tomyam
    April 29th, 2015 at 15:43 | #145

    Visited their sales gallery and show units last week. Around 50k price increase in Block F compared to the rest, but comes with kitchen cabinet, and appliances worth around 20k. Layout slightly better and most importantly, further away from the highway.

    Sales is not so good, less than 50% sold.

    Ever since Tropicana Ivory sell the piece of seaview land (in front of TBR) to Asia Green, I already lost faith with PWC.

    Where got people sell a better piece of land to other player and let them block all the seaview ?
    Such a brainless decision, and they piss off their earlier buyer who hoping to see seaview.

    This PWC is destined to be a failure, just like their own Penang Times Square legend…

    Hmm agree..
    Holding power is important.
    And also get one when bank still willing to approved your loan. Nowadays, getting hard and hard to get bank approval. If bank does not approve the loan, then how good or how much you like the property also useless.

    May 20th, 2015 at 08:00 | #164


    Eg: Bank charge interest 100.50
    Developer pay 100
    So i saw there is a 50 cents gap there.

    Anyway, after calling each party, they already pay the 0.50 gap. I think we still need to monitor and if any issue, call them immediately. At least month by month is easy to trace.

    Do agreed with you that for retirement, it should be good enough with 550sqft.

    Penang really is a good place for retirement. It will be better if the Gov can improved the road condition……

    Better dun expect seaview for the current location as for TBR will be block by future other project. They will hint you “may be” some angle can see slightly seaview..but dun put hope then you got bonus if you have.. if you put some hope and it end up nothing, then will be upset.

    For new purchasers, you would be at a great disadvantage if don’t opt for this special referral reward. I am sure the developer has already factored in this 5k in the selling price, so it is only make sense for you to claim back the money to make a better use. Cheers.

    Hi, anyone can advise on the MRTA.
    It actually starts from the SNP date or starts from the first disbursement?
    I have just paid for the MRTA recently but SNP signed a year ago but the CIMB bank alliance insurance company- Sunlife started to enforce the MRTA date as per SNP date.
    Is that the normal practice?

    Its not power station…its called GIS substation..about 3 storey building and you will not see cables or transmission tower. The nuisance is more the highway noise.
    Btw is the 400sf studio now exceeding 1000psf net? Somehow the Ecoterrace has brought up the psf psychological level..

    Thanks CM.
    There was someone told me there will be a very big TNB station there and my concern is about the health which could be caused by the radiation if stay too close to the station and off course this may affect the property price appreciation also I think.

    Regarding the MRTA, I purchased through CIMB bank under self-finance mode.
    The insurance company is called Sunlife Insurance.
    I have just paid the premium in July 2015 but the insurance effective date started from May 2014.

    I do not understand why the insurance company started to cover (a year ago) even without having paid the premium.

    Checked with them, they said yes this is their company policy, owner will get covered based on the letter of offer date even though haven’t paid the premium. If anything happen during this period, owner is actually able to make claim.

    Is this acceptable? Or this is just the excuse? I do not believe that one would be able to claim if anything happen during the period (before paying the insurance premium lor…).

    Anyone has similar experience, would please kindly advise?

    Can anyone confirm if the referral program for Tropicana development owners still on as buying a unit in Block F?

    Also did anyone get any further discount for being a Tropicana Loyalty Card member ie 1.5% for ‘Priority Card’ and 2% for Gold Card etc?

    The sales exec at the latest sales booth at Queensbay Mall on 30July 2015 says no.

    I think the referral programme ended.

    Not sure on further disc to card member as we are yet card member. You can always check with their asst mgr/mgr Lisa to further confirm.
