sales was not good.
give or take 5-10%.
absolute price is attractive with >50% @ <RM500k and not a single unit exceeding RM1mil.

Only a handful duplex available and easily 30% of these duplexes were booked.

Bro, if more than 50% of the units are priced below 500K how come sales not good??? hmm.gif because surrounded by the kampung?
*
personally for me, there's a lot of reasons.

glomac is just not very good at marketing.
and to launch their centro v but with huge original centro still in the sales gallery? logically people would compare and once comparison is made, it would be evident on why.

I tot Centro V has better furnishings bro to offset the higher prices compared with Centro? Yeah, why not push sales of Centro first before launching Centro V? hmm.gif

Just to illustrate an example.
Centro. Say 1100 sf at 700psf. Therefore 770k. 1cp. Maintenance at 0.25psf thereabout.
Centro V. Say 600sf at 850psf. Therefore 510k. Tandem cp. Maintenance at 0.35psf thereabout.

Really makes you think twice about getting a unit when:
Great disparity in prices psf.
Great disparity in prices for maintenance.
Different timing of completion.
Leftover units of original centro.

Location cannot be faulted. True pj address albeit surrounded by squatters.
But ideal for own stay due to proximity to major highways.

Again it has most things to their advantage except executiin and marketing it successfully.

My 2 c.

ok ok done all PM, or I share what I know here, then maybe u guys can pm for if u need the agent number? she is quite friendly and helpful though.

The agent told me they already start to collect PD Cheque (I did issue a cheque for her, dated 15.6.2019, RM3000), LOL she says first come first serve, I kiasu XD
Unit selection date will be on mid of May based on first come first served basis.

2R1B-RM288k
3R2B-RM450k

but after I went to the site yesterday, the kampung beside really brings me back to concern... I wonder how long it will take to develop lah.
Anyone stay nearby can share the experience with me?

is it next to centro?

same layout with plaza but pricing difference due to leasehold i think... but i think i prefer this location more than PKJ though... kelana jaya frankly speaking have alot more supplies than kayu ara here...

you targeting this ah?
KJ overlooking beautiful lake and park.

this got nothing to look at but closer to MRT. and the infamous 1U.

hehe.

one of the option only... for PKJ, investment wise i think beautiful lake and park wont translate into higher rental with the pricing that they are going there... studio unit installment will be around 1500 per month already....  shocking.gif  shocking.gif

at such pricepoint and given pj/kj folks, they won't take 90% loan lah.

The Glomac 121 is lower half of the Glomac Centro plot as outlined in Wikimapia. Right opposite mosque.

Wonder why Bandar Utama s/b or See Hoy Chan not buy out the entire Kayu Ara slum area and brand them under BU or DU 2.0 since they're just beside. Baru the entire area systematic and class mah.

i simply say only ah....

it's akin to asking a billionaire to pick up a rm1 note from a drain.

Unit facing west = facing mosque (right across the road)
Unit facing east = facing LRT3 track, about 500m away

So, choose wisely haha

I think this property is a big Nono...the mosque is just too near....😭

good point.
but it's a relatively small mosque and the podium itself would be many storeys above it. you reckon there would be big effect?
need to wait till they release the tower position to know its pros and cons.

The good, the bad and the ugly

Good
Relatively cheap
Layouts are practical and maximising room ‘rental’ concept
No over the top redundant facilities
Very near major highways
Walkable to proposed lrt3 line station (<500m)
Only north and south orientation
Maximum car park floor is level 5 so it’s tolerable. Facility floor on level 6.
True PJ address although not a premium location

Bad
Leasehold but will be renewed
Nearby mosque and slum area
Relatively high dense. Approx 800+ units
Neighbouring development centro still struggling

Ugly
A lot of foreigners nearby
Pathway to lrt ain’t exactly a walk on the park
Maintenance fee is pricey 35 + 3 despite somewhat basic facilities

Even though it’s relatively cheap but somewhat surprisingly sales take up wasn’t very spectacular. Tower A is launched already with approx 20-30% sales. It’s sales because spa can be signed on the spot for additional 2% discount.
Tower B is expected to be launched with a premium over tower A.
The other surprising strategy is podium facing units are cheaper than external facing units. Very strange indeed.

Some friends bought into it and they are running referral scheme. So if anybody is keen, drop me a pm and can quote my friend for some kickbacks despite going through either developer or agents. Referral is currently pegged at if not mistaken few thousand ringgits.
