u all plan to stay or flip?

is it accessbile directly from NPE? traffic might be a problem during peak hours.

price starts from 550k? renting can be a problem.

1 car park per unit? potential problem again... good luck!

is it worth for 2bedroom and 1 car park with the price tag? what is the selling point? by looking the e-brochure (looks like amateur work..LOL), the main point is feng shui of the river facing home.

Joey Yap also says Plaza Pantai's feng shui beri good kekeke

In this area my personal benchmark is against Seringin initial entry, anything more expensive, not more value adding, no go for me.

I called and they said factory owner (land owner) is the developer. Problem is the old factory (can see big old machines) still sits on the land. Wonder when are they going to demolish it and start work.

Saw a marketing agent setting up booth in Yaohan OUG like nearly a year ago, I guess the reception was not so good.

Today went there.

Overall are okay. Not very impressive for that kind of price.
Concerns:
1. Maintenance fee is 0.38 sen not yet include sinking fund
2. developer is 1st time building property (show unit is run quite badly) They didnt really show what is included and what is not. Sale agent also dont really know.
3. From the show unit, the material are not made out of good quality. Considering the price, I expected better.

Though with all these, it is almost 60% sold out. But it look like a sticker game as today is the first day of launching.

If really 60% sold out, then very likely it's sticker game. With that sort of pricing and current investment climate, it's not possible to achieve 60% sales. rclxub.gif

As far as I know, this project is not located too close to the river, as there's a building behind. I do concern about the smells too, but I believe the government is trying to improve the river quality by doing the "river of life" project.

No doubt to say that the location is good, traffic congestion? I believe all the condos are facing the same issue nowadays. I only concern "window to window" problem, I hate it becoz nowadays high-density buildings always face this issue and I don't want to pull down the curtain and having with no views due to privacy.

I don't understand why people are so concerning about the showroom quality, it is just a showroom, they won't include the showroom finishes to the unit, in fact, I would like to know the quality of the shell and core finishes e.g. skim coat, plaster and paint? windows?, quality ironmongery, sanitary fittings etc.

If possible, I would like to know the brand of the lift, some developer will use dodgy lift, U might spend 15min waiting time to wait for the lift especially if your unit is at level 32.

the quality of the building is determined by the reliable building contractor, and common facilities such as gym room, security, main hall, etc... would determine the increment of the property price in the future too.

There is no wrong about this property, people might in doubt about the quality of the building, I would say if this is the first building to this developer, they will ensure all the fit outs are in tip top qualities so that they can take this building as the successful project to market their up coming projects.

hope that helps... ^^

I wouldn't trust the gowemen able to pull off anything close enough to improve the rivers in KV.

People's normally associate the showroom quality with the actual unit quality. That's the purpose of "show"room, ie to show people.

There is no relationship between first project vs tip top quality.
The marketing pitch of first project developer will normally pitch that, but the actual fact tuns out there is absolutely no relationship between the two. It's just marketing pitch.

I purchase properties based on facts and figures, I'm a design development architect, mostly dealing with developers' projects including East & West Malaysia properties.

There is not right or wrong as every property will have their pros and cons, I share my opinion because I don't raise superficial or broad statements by stating the traffic jam since it is a common issue in KL.

They are revising the design of the common facilities at this stage which I think they should have done it earlier before getting DO. 80% piling is done so far. Provisional sum given to this project in sanitary fittings and ironmongery are around mid to high end level but actual wise need to be confirmed.

This project has been delayed for almost a year due to the land issue that need to be surrendered to DBKL for road widening in the future since 2011. The layout is firmed since BP submission and AP have been approved, the condo facade design might need to be revised if possible (above image was a proposal back in 2012), the podium design is totally obsolete because the developer would like to make a luxury feeling by adding big glass and LED on the facade (not practical). Common area such as swimming pool is not firmed yet but PC sum has been allocated.

To smokey, If you think traffic jam is an big issue, then don't live in KL, I wonder why people spend RM1200 per sqft just to live in KL central even though the traffic is 10 times worse than suburb area. Oh well, I will leave it to you to decide, no hard feeling laugh.gif

To AppreciativeMan, please don't judge the book by its cover, U have no idea about this project ya tongue.gif

To zachozoi, I agree with you that the maintenance fee is on a higher side, perhaps they can confirm further if it comes with better facilities, like gym room with A/C, mini library,mini cinema room...etc.. Oh well, bare in mind, RM0.20 per sqft for maintenance, the MA might be facing a big issue as they can't afford to employ good security services. but I believe future JMC will work hand in hand to improve the facilities once the condo get extra funding.

To puchongite, I disagree with you, the showroom is just to give U an idea about the size of an actual typical room layout. according to HDA, that doesn't mean what it show is what U get in your unit except the shop drawings stated in your SPA, developer can spend a million ringgit for showroom renovation, if they include all the interior fit-out to the unit, kindly let me know, coz I will purchase 10 units. rolleyes.gif But I do agree with U regarding the tip top quality factor, unless stated clearly, otherwise chances to this promise would be 50/50.

Is this residential title or commercial title? Land size? 220 units?

Perhaps they should cut the facilities as not many residents are using the in house facilities wink.gif keep the basic facilities will do.

With a minimum salary policy, security fees will be increased over the time.

By the way, where is the exact location? Lol

Podium is commercial so I would say it is a service apartment. The design is not firmed yet as the design is still revising. People may not so aware about this project because the developer didn't appoint a good marketing team to polish the property. blush.gif

The developer are Premium Developer Sdn Bhd.

They are the No.1 Manufacturer in Malaysia, called Toong Foong Industrial Company, manufacturing wire mesh products.

What have they done?
The entire stretch of Johor to Singapore highway, the side fencing are all manufactured by them.
That's their core business.

Now Premium Developer Sdn Bhd. are 1st time developing this project (Benteng8)

Last update was sold many units to "oversea investors" wor....though this project is so near to Petalz, but the end results very far apart. It shows that not only location matters, marketing, promotion and concepts equally important.

if the developer has financial means, they can continue to build the condo nicely, I believe eventually will have buyer geh... As the psf will seem to be cheaper and cheaper...

I believe the micro-design is not ready yet. Therefore, you may notice the design will keep upgrading before the end of construction period.
Furthermore, this is the first project to Premium developer, Marketing strategy may be lack of concern. 60% of the units are expected to be oversea buyers.

I perceive it would be the mutual trust between the developer and the foreign buyers mainly from China. Although RM550-600 per sqft is not considered high in the current market value, but to foreign buyers it will be really cheap and the S&P transaction could have even be easier if the developer is using the bank of China.

As long as the sales target reach 60% before the date of completion, I don't think the developer would be worried of..

any more news on this Benteng8? heard they are re-launching after CNY2014. apparently some design changes... But i find it totally weird that its ALL 2 rooms. As i understand, the +1 (utility/study room) is because apparently you need a certain minimum size in order to call it a ROOM, else it ends up as a +1.

Anyway, how's the price if its at RM600psf? ++all the promotion and stuffs. I see its 'walking' distance to the KTM, is this a selling point given that all units comes with standard 1 carpark? I wld presume rental about RM1500-1800 range.. but with 2 rooms, might be a chanllenge getting RM1800, so it'll be -ve cashflow.

For appreciation, say end of 2015, you all think the area there can afford 700psf? The plus point is that it's near downtown. Even the cyber end of puchong is launching condos at RM600psf now.. this benteng8 is, justifiably ok.. but the competition from the surrounding lower range apartments might pose a challenge.

Would be great to hear your views/thoughts/insights on
1) Rental (can the area there support this)
2) rentability (KTM nearby.. easy tenants?)
3) Appreciation for the area (~700psf boleh?)

Of course, if you've bought a unit there, wld love to hear ur reasoning. You can PM me directly. thanks!

Within 500m shall be considered as walking distance... so I don't think it is a walking distance too
