    I live in Batu Kawan and I find this development absolutely depressing! We do not need high rise buildings in Batu Kawan. The developers has already spoilt Penang Island. Do not let them build their hideous high rises here without improving any of the infrastructures in the surrounding areas! Time they think of the quality of life and environment, not just profits $$$$

    They don’t have the balls to develop as they like it to be. Aspen will be
    History if they ever try to build high rise in B. Kawan.

    I think you have a problem. Since when it is the developer responsibility to improve their project surrounding infrastructure? Wasnt this the state goverment responsibility? Do you go around repairing potholes in your neighboring road?

    we should be proud a Penang born Company that manage to bring Ikea to Batu Kawan, is wise move to be in Batu Kawan, bet you guys no other location is better than BK for Ikea and huge commercial developments… (Like Mid Valley) BK will be Mid Valley of Penang and northern region! Other developers don’t bother about traffic infrastructure planning but Aspen Group & Ikea made the right and strategic decision to develop in BK. with the support from state government BK will be the next engine of growth in the entire northern region. by the way we should thank Najib gor for Federal supports and billions in infrastructure investment in Bk… think about it, only BK has over 4 billion infra investments for the last 20 years in the entire northern region… what else we as Penangite can asked for? federal supports in Infra investment and State government efforts in attracting catalyst investment to BK…. BK has everthing it need to be a world class city! lets supports Aspen Group and Ikea to spearhead the potentials of BK to the next level!

    @Penang lang,

    Well, I foresee BK will be a growth area, so I agree with you on that. But to say “BK has everthing it need to be a world class city”, I think you’re just inviting people to slap your face….:)

    The reason for BK development is to provide an affordable, comfortable and modern alternative to island living, as oppose to the current lorry-infested, dust-filled and high-voltage-cable dangling butterworth/perai.

    I don’t think anyone would have any problem with the state selling the land to the developer at RM45/sqft IF the houses they build there are being sold at a price that reflects that land price (that probably translates to ~RM400k for a triple storey terrace and ~RM650 for a triple storey semi-d).

    But it would be a BIG FAILURE of the state if it lets the developer PROFITEER from that large piece of land by selling “unaffordable” homes, making the original intention of developing BK pointless…..:)

    I think you should SLAP your face first! wake up MAN! we’re not talking about how much profit a company can make or should make, the essence of business is to make profit and remain profitable.

    I’m only taking about the viability of BK as strategic hub for commercial developments instead of developing in already congested and poor traffic / road infrastructure of the island or northern mainland!

    if you want an affordable home please register with the state housing department where all the eligibility of buying affordable houses is being processed!

    a country can only achieve its success in providing affordable homes when the government build it (ie: Singapore and Hong Kong and all other develop country in the world) and not passing it to developer to build as developers will always find ways to make profit not to do CHARITY!

    as an upcoming and new urban area, they should have a good mix of all kind of property and not just dump affordable homes there! we should have good mix of developments to have long term sustainability in new town planning.

    people like you only know to criticize and complain! think before you talk and don’t sound like real CiCak!

    Negative meh? No lah, I just like to give drastic example to get my point across….:)

    Don’t you think this argument of “the previous gov did worse then me, so it’s ok if I screw up now” already sounds very stale! Unfortunately, our CM seems to have stuck with this old habit whenever he can’t find any better justification…..:)

    @Joo Joo
    You got the point~~…

    but more and more penangites(island) will move to Batu Kawan, if it become an own sustainable city; eco, comfortable and of cause with better infra…(traffic…). Compare to Bayan Baru, I prefer to live in BATU KAWAN…

    Agree with you, it does sound like Batu Kawan will be better the Bayan Baru.

    However, it would be stupid for anyone to buy apartments in Batu Kawan (as shown in pics) because landed are suppose to be affordable there. Do not let Aspen fool you into buying their overpriced apartments.

    For those of you who have been relying too much on the internet for information, rumours are never to be trusted.

    Just got an invite from Aspen. They will be holding a Ground Breaking on the 14/9 with IKEA.

    It’s now a matter of time for Bandar Cassia to become develop.

    Eco World acquired more than 450 acres of Leasehold land within Bandar Cassia for their Eco Marina development. Aspen Vision City’s development is Freehold. If Eco World price any of their residential properties anywhere similar to their Eco Meadows development, surely if Aspen sells their residential even if it is a condo or high-rise at about RM400k it will be extremely attractive as their development will be walking distance to IKEA.

    Eager for their next launching. Ringgit falling in value can’t invest in Forex anymore. Buying property to hedge recession and depreciation. :)

    Seberang perai house is only suitable for seberang perai people. Seberang perai really not a good place to live. Kampang style shopping mall, food not good, place ulu, not place to travel, air is dirty. Better live in penang island. Seberang perai just left for seberang perai people.
