      Xiao :Good try, Admin. Intel is just across the road from QBM. How you come out with 12km?

      This admin doesn’t know anything about travelling time, from Tamarind to airport only 30min?(maybe after midnight?)
      Another big mistake is Pg bridge is further away from QR, but it only takes 10min to reach airport(Tamarind to pg bridge 20min, Tamarind to airport 30min, meaning pg bridge to airport only 10min) whereas from QR to airport he said 15min is required……sigh……very misleading

      August 15th, 2016 at 15:36 | #20

      As of today now, Tamarind already turned into a sour grape & surroounded by many LMC houses with fully congested area. Hopefully reclaimed island can bring out some value in this area again.
      Currently Queens residence doing very much better as no LMC in between & less development in future. Q3 will be final phase. Looking forward for new commercial shoplot opening soon.

      Haha, really entertaining reading back all the comments as far back as 2016.
      Who’s winner, who’s loser, Who has a medal, who has not, who is nearer to Intel, to airport etc.
      But the most compelling comment of all was by *bloody greed* back in 2016 which says :-

      “Now is time to keep CASH, only fool will talk about property now. Get ready for crash landing. Hahahhaa”

      Anyone who conserved their cash then, would have set themselves up for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of betting big on equities when the pandemic hits, and reaping the rewards when central banks all over the world started to pour money into the market, and a multiplication of their investment by 5 to 10 fold was really as easy as “walking to Intel across the road”. 😉

      Haha. For sure bust!! But if for own stay, this is a good project if compare to PWC bay residences with higher density & 1carpark.
      Seaview or not won’t be a problem.
      Location already superb.
      If you got a seaview unit that’s even better.
      I was wondering if subsale can do well since majority units within 1 million & above. Should be tough in subsale.

      Tamarind also got HK and China people buy either 1st hand from developer, or in secondary market. But still, the price is still like shit. Don’t get distracted by the talk of foreigners buying and all that crap, the reality is, there is a lot of property supply, and there can be MORE supply coming as and when needed, given the super high development plot ratio being used by rocket gov since they took over.

      Actually Tamarine loacated in a great location but surrounded by LMC/affordable house specially I santorini. Oversupply in that area already. QR no more development at surrounding & no new affordable house. Except a piece of vacant carpark land which developer bought from RM670/sqf.

      @Andy
      QR seen more expensive than Tamarind if calculate by RM/sqf.
      Advantage for QR is near by QB & no LMC next nearby.
      Tamarind has too many condo option to compete at surrounding.
      Currently Tamarind already converted into residential title?
      And that’s one tower which come with only 1 carpark.
