    800 sq.ft worth to buy in this MC ranges, only rm250/sq.ft, the cheaper compare to 900(rm333/sq.ft.) and 1000sq.ft(rm400/sq.ft).
    If looking for bigger spaces then 400k for 1000sq,ft still below current market value. Base on the picture and unit qty., 900 and 1000sq.ft should be separated block from those 700 and 800sq.ft unit.

    It will be a “Muhibbah” centre. The atmosphere or environment just like
    “Chowrasta Market” and in no time your property is not going to
    appreciate in tandem with the market value.

    Where to register for this? Anyone knows this developer?

    I don’t think we need to register at KOMTAR coz the Medium Cost is neither LC/LMC. Only the 700 sq ft is LMC.

  23. Ah Dog
    April 13th, 2013 at 11:26 | #23

    1000sf with RM400k? I think it is no longer call affordable house, but it can be a good choice for investor.

    400k with condo facilities?

  25. yean
    April 13th, 2013 at 12:48 | #25

    1000sf with 400k is for lower level, upper level should be increase level by level, penthouse will be 500k i think.

  26. Believer

    No condo facilities but “Chowrasta Market” only.

  27. allen

    wow! if 400k without any condo facilities that is considered as high end prices?

  28. joanne
    April 13th, 2013 at 20:30 | #28

    It is really a big joke that 400k per unit or 400/sqf call as affordable house and only for those income falls below rm3500/mth. how much they have remain after the fix installment? it is not realistic at all.
    a rich planner vever understand the poor’s financial condition.

    Price correction coming … !

    Demand in secondary property market slow in H1 (thestar)

    there is also the general sentiment that the property market is due for a price correction.

    THE demand in the secondary property market is expected to remain slow during the first half of this year, a reflection of last year’s trend due to Bank Negara’s responsible lending guidelines, says Property Hub Sdn Bhd resident manager Wan Choy Heng.

    He says that the situation is expected to remain slow as house buyers prefer project launches that come with a developer’s interest bearing scheme (DIBS) There is also the general sentiment that the property market is due for a price correction ……

    I think the 80 units of 1000sf will at higher floor. Lower floor will locate those 800sf and 900sf, will come with condo facilities. I think can’t select units, by ‘lucky draw’ to select your unit. While the 700sf will be another block with it’s own facility.

    Why don’t you consider the 700sft unit? only RM100psft. 800sft units also cheap.

  33. condomana
    April 15th, 2013 at 10:49 | #33

    Hi Make sense, I think joanne did not say she couldn’t afford it. What she meant was why is gov subsidized apartments being sold at such high price, considering the ceiling income for this category of apartment is RM3500/mth.

    In other words, if you buy a RM400k property, assuming you fork out 10% down payment, you’d have to borrow RM360k from the bank. The average mortgage payment for such loan would be RM2000/month, and that’s already more than 50% of one’s monthly income, therefore breaching BNM guideline…..:)

  34. Make sense
    April 15th, 2013 at 14:05 | #34


    The price above is not confirmed one is it? I thought many units are selling at around RM100psft? Even the 800sft units are selling at RM250psft… I am sure you can’t find this price any where else nowadays. Unless you die die want the limited 1000sft units, then I have nothing to say.

  35. Chris
    April 15th, 2013 at 17:27 | #35

    Guys, correct me if I’m wrong. Isn’t the RM2500 cap for “Low Cost” and RM3500 cap for “Low Medium Cost” unit?

    I read that the 700sft unit is the “Low Medium Cost”, thus RM3500 household income cap for the 72.5K unit. The rest is “Medium Cost” thus open for all?

    Or am I mistaken somewhere?

  36. Keat La
    April 16th, 2013 at 09:27 | #36

    I will grab one unit and rent it out, surely can rent out with very good price. Guys, please share if there is any under table deal to purchase one, up to 1000sf with RM400k also fine for me. thanks.

    Hi everyon here. I am penangite whom are ooking for refinancing loan because I am currently with Standard charted bank with BLR + 1%. Applied the loan 4 yrs ago. Now in the market, the BLR with minus interest rate for the rest of tenure.
    I also checked with Standard charted that the exit penalty was at 6% of the outstanding.. I was wondering is it same as other bank? Pls share your recommendation of bank loan.

    +1% is very high leh… I heard public bank is having blr-2.0% and cimb -2.2%. Try to do some research before you choose the bank… It’s very important and say your home loan has a fixed interest rate of 6.6% p.a., and the current interest rate for home loan refinancing is 4.4%; you’ll be paying 2.2% less interest every year for the rest of your loan period if you go with refinancing. To put things into perspective, 2.2% of RM400,000 is a staggering RM8,800. Damn lot man…

    wah, BLR +1%, are you kidding me? I am so surprised to hear that. Nowadays we are all talking about -2.3 to -2.5 already lo, bro. Citibank offer -2.5 and also got RM10k cashback too, why you choose that package? I would advise to refinance, you will not regret it and save alot of $.

    Wow it’s good to know about this RM 10K discount. With the money got back, can use to pay penalty charges or even lawyer fees… The only thing is I heard Citibank is kinda selective on the location when giving out loan… is it real? anyone tried before?

    Of course it is real la, go check for yourself. All banks are selective in giving out loans, they cannot just give anyone one the street right? Or else no need to do business lo.. haha. But so far 3 of my buddies of different location applied at Citibank also get. So I think not too hard.
    If you dont know if you are eligible or not, you can check using the online application? Heard that they call in 24 hours. https://www.citibank.com.my/english/promo/hl-10min-approval/index.html?icid=BN_HL_HM_10MinApproval_250313
    But if you are the lazy sort of person, like me, just meet with their consultant at the bank, only takes 10 minutes to know accept or not.

    The RM 10K is better than nothing right?? And it’s the bank giving to you instead of the other way round… Which other bank that give you bank money? For the legal fees, I’m not so sure too… If you’re really interested why not give them a call to clarify it? Do update us please.

    If can tolerate and dun mind driving a second hand car like kelisa .. normal city degree holder worker, husband and wife should be no problem to affort 400k house.

    I guess the guidelines for the 400k unit should be offer to first home buyer only or combine income <8k which which will make more sense.

    For those who bought D’Piazza first hand, they must be very familiar with Zubicon. For other who do not know, Zubicon is simply a company (or rather a few folks sitting near the ground floor) that forced the owners to buy sand, bricks and cements if the owners do not let them carry out the renovation.

    September 26th, 2014 at 16:08 | #69

    Is there any updates on this project?? I already submit my application before last GE but until now still no updates. I tried to call PDC and they said this is not they incharge and ask me to call Zubicon directly. I call Zubicon for so many times but nobody pick up my call at all :~(
    When are they going to offer?

    January 12th, 2015 at 12:53 | #77

    Hi Sara & Potato … i got the SP Chelliah 800sg ft as well !! I called the developer Zubicon , They said the House Layout Haven’t print yet & we need to wait for the letter frm Erumah !!
    About the location pretty good at heart of city but only thing makes me worried is 47 storey near the Sg Pinang !!! hmmm… such a high storey ??

  78. MrPotato
    January 12th, 2015 at 14:16 | #78


    Hi @saravanan and @MrSolid

    Happy to hear that we are ‘on the same boat’!I have the same concern too…47 storey…but i guess those 800sq ft will be in the same building together with 900 and 1000 sq ft (just my guess)…whereas 700 sq ft one will occupy 2 blocks, each block has 37 floor as per Erumah…

    saravanan, I cannot seem to find the private message option as well…lets wait for the letter from Erumah, in the meantime I’ll hang around here for awhile

  79. saravanan
    January 12th, 2015 at 15:53 | #79

    hi @MrSolid and @MrPotato Yes that is my concern here 47 storey pretty high density..Anyway i dont think so we can able to choose the floor as it will be based on ballot. Its pretty hard to get a house in heart of town and island now for cheaper price..Just hope for the best :) Keep finger crossed all will turn out good :)

    I get offer too, but RM400k for 1000sqft!
    I wonder why 800sqft is only RM200k, add 200sqft, add RM200k???!!!
    Is this make sense??

    @leeden As far as i know RM400K different block and the amenities wont be shared with 800 or 700 square feet..You guys will be a separate amenities if i’m not mistaken.

    Hi Mr Potato & Sara,

    Yes.. U r rite !! We cant choose the floor /hse Num based on Ballot acc. Zubicon but i quess maybe we can exchange during the ballot day as per mutual understanding(MAYBE ONLY) . Since, it going b 3 yrs project so we shud keep in touch freq bcoz a lot of information can be share & gain wic benefit to all .. So , Lets more ppl in then mayb we can create a group or Watsapp or something in order exchange information & the progress !!

    Mr . Leeden ,
    I asked the same question why 800sgft rm250persgft but 1000sgft -rm400persgft and they said the 1000sgft are separate single block with only few units at each floor and got shops &etc at ground floor & diff entrance ( i think so !!! )
    For 800 & 900 sgft are same building with sharing condo facilities . whereas , 700sgft are 2 block no condo facilites..

    2. 800 Sq Ft – 1 block, 47 floor, 883 units

    Hi @MrSolid @MrPotato

    Yes agreed . We should create a group to discuss about the latest information so that everyone is up to date whats happening. Anyway please keep me posted once you you all received the letter .
    883 units come with 1 car park? i was wondering how the block would be with 883 units…Its gonna be many units in one floor.. The building would be sky crapper if 47 floor. I just hope it doesn’t look like Macalum low cost or BJ court :(

  113. Mr.Solid
    January 20th, 2015 at 11:25 | #113

    Mr.Potato ,

    Ya.. U r rite !! seems like this project moving a bit slow compare to the rest but as i knw SP Chelliah was 1st affordable project in island approved my state Gov yet still haven’t received much info !!
    Watsoever , hope this project will complete within 3 years !!

  114. saravanan
    January 20th, 2015 at 13:31 | #114

    yes pretty slow. I’m calling them daily to get the information. Oh Tri Pinnacle already sent out the letter too..?? I called the Komtar and they are midst of preparing the letter now. Since 800 ++ application , its gonna take pretty long to prepare the letter .. Be patient guys.Ramah Pavilion as i know most of the applicant rejected the offer as it is in rural area and the developer are private developer ..Hence it moving pretty fast compared Chelliah Park city. Chelliah park city is by state government and the contractor is Zubicon. Thus, its pretty slow compared to other projects.. I hope the project will complete in 3 years time too..Hope no any problem in between..

  115. MrPotato
    January 20th, 2015 at 14:34 | #115

    @ck, sorry I am not sure about the car park

    @Mr. Solid & @saravanan,

    From the link steven shared:

    4. Development Schedule
    The entire development of affordable housing on the land must be fully completed within four (4) years by November 2017.

    So the ETA is Nov 2017, less than 3 years from now, keep our fingers crossed

  116. Mr.Solid
    January 20th, 2015 at 14:50 | #116

    Ya… i went to Zubicon today to checkout the latest info and saw the layout ” As usual Normal Apartment Layout” and for 800sgft no balcony but 900 & 1000sgft do f balcony !! The corner unit of each floor will be 900sgft with balcony wic same block with 800sgft !!! ….

  117. saravanan
    January 20th, 2015 at 15:12 | #117

    No balcony :( i want balcony to see the view of the town ..sad thing!! sob sob

  118. saravanan
    January 20th, 2015 at 15:16 | #118

    I can’t imagine living in a apartment without a balcony. Sometimes I need fresh air and I don’t want to sit in a park (and opening a window doesn’t get this feeling of wind) so a balcony is the only solution.

  119. saravanan
    January 20th, 2015 at 15:18 | #119

    It’s a must have for me. It’s where I always go every morning when I wake up to get fresh view of the skyline, feel the cool breeze, do a bit of stretching, and more. what a sad thing

  120. Mr.Solid
    January 20th, 2015 at 16:46 | #120

    Its true …. balcony symbol of modern apartment style but in return you need to pay RM 100k more !! The rest of house layout almost the same for 800sgft & 900sgft !!

    January 20th, 2015 at 18:17 | #121


    I am an advocate of affordable homes for the middle class, and will fully support their entitlement for a quality home in their homeland. But we have to be consciously aware of the fine line between basic entitlement vs modern luxuries that you have to work for, failing which our society will fall into the trap of complacency and laziness.

  122. Mr.Solid
    January 21st, 2015 at 12:33 | #122

    Finger ,

    I believe the house with price of RM200k ^ consider not a middle class range but falls under affordable home range . The Buyers just feels that home with balcony gives more modern lifestyle feel but not a luxuries .
    Anyway ,
    Since you’re advocate of middle class home please explain about the process of purchasing the unit such as S&P agreement, Legal Fee & any other charges since most of them are First Time Buyer so we are not aware of the procedures !!

  123. Finger
    January 21st, 2015 at 13:18 | #123


    Just to clarify, when I said I am an advocate, I did not mean I am a conveyancing lawyer. I actually meant I am a strong supporter of affordable homes for the middle income.

    However, whether I am a lawyer or not, I strongly encourage you to seek FIRST HAND information from authorized state housing agencies in Komtar, rather than hear-saying over the internet.

    I understand your feeling as a first time home buyer. The feeling of heavy responsibilities, mortgage payments for the many years to come, and the various uncertainties ahead. But trust me, once you have gone over it and got over the fear of the first encounter, it would be super easy the next time, to the extend that you just can’t wait to buy your next property.

Affordable House Ramah Pavallion only need to 5% and can apply EPF … This is affordable hse so shud be flexible !! Those get RM 400k need to have cash around 40-50k !!! Wow ….

    Dont know anything abt the procedure but Yes we can reject if we want to.

    As I read from some forums buying govt projects (LC/LMC/AH), we are bound by contract (or govt bond) that prevents buyers from selling within 1 or 2 yrs of purchase. What is the exact period? Does it include affordable homes too?

    Pls don’t fall in their trap. They can’t even explain clearly and they don’t understand the question when you ask. The low cost house blocking the 800/900 sqft units view. Moreover its looks congested. Even same goes to 1000 sqft. The land is very small and they building such high rise building. Besides this developer last time know as a contractor. A lot people know them as gangster contractor. So in this case sure they good to before buy house, once buy house any problem in future sure they show their gangsterism. People already buy this house then good luck. If not yet then think before you buy.

    No, it’s not near to The Sandilands. For your curiosity Summer Place is
    also situated along this river. Do you think this river is dirty ?

    h all,
    i got 800sqt, my loan application had approved. The developer said the arrangement for signing S&P is around end of march or april (two months from now), means that the arrangement to draw the lot unit will be around that time, subject to the number of applicant who had submitted the loan approval letter.

    additional car park charged Rm27,500 is very very expensive for affordable house project scheme
    by Penang state government. All the purchasers should requested the state government to reduce the price before purchase the additiional car park.
    I feel that the reasonable price should be RM18,000.

    All the purchasers please feed back

    If no smell then probably is a good buy since the location is quite strategic, agree?

    I also heard that Government is trying very hard to clean up the river, is it still in progress?

    sungai pinang has already been upgraded to safe level, i dont remember the grading and numbering, i forgot… and this happened few years ago already… but i dont know how they have been maintaining it… last time they claimed the grade now is from dead river i think grade 6 to now grade 3 swimmable….

    This is really a good news for us, i hope the government still keeping up the good work and continue to upgrade the level just like what Singapore did.

    Imagine if Sg Pinang upgrade to a clean and clear river then probably The Rise is a good place to stay.

    Hope more people can share in here, thanks.

    Hi future neighbor, my loan also approved already. I heard the extra car park is subject to approval from PG gov. The bank and Zubicon can’t guarantee the availability of the extra car park. Beside this, the extra car park will be under another set of loan (not included in the house loan).
