I was looking at both these properties.
I skipped on SJCC as the TNB structure too close by, transit options wasn't attractive and the agents mentioned one of the targets for rental was students, that isn't a market I am interested in. Also as an urban-dwelling for that price there are better places to buy for rental income.
I choose Cantara for the following reasons :-
1) The rebates were extremely attractive, as a ballot customer it was 17% off on a unit plus free kitchen cabinets.
2) Proximity to MRT and on the KJ line it is less stops and faster to get to KL Sentral in addition to better frequency and reliability.
3) More family oriented development and less busy an area thus more peaceful.
4) Commercial areas have less expensive shops and more useful.
5) It had some interesting features that wasn't the usual bog standard boring ole buildings.
I placed 2 ballot tickets for Cantara as was targeting 2 units, alas both units was snapped up before my ticket could be called and ended up buying 1 unit and letting go on the other.
I cant deny that cantara gives better deals in terms of pricing and furnishing. But on your other points, you might be right, for you. I have my own reasons purchasing a unit @ lot15 and so do other buyers but for sure my point of buying there does not rely on whether there is alink bridge to a mall or not.
Regarding the public transport, the distance from lot15 to lrt subang jaya is 500m, I can say almost the same as cantara to lembah subang lrt(If the entrance/exit is on the nearest end to lrt) and it is only 2 station difference from lembah subang. the new lrt3 line will stop at glenmarie which is in between ara damansara and subang jaya station.
Im not sure about ara damansara, but in Subang Jaya you got few schools to choose from and the nearest is SRI KL(few mins away) if you choose to send your kids there.
For recreational area, there is also subang ria recreational park just across the road from mesinaga.
These are not my main reasons for buying there, it is just a matter of personal preference of the location and what I need more than what other people think we need. I have my own reasons that I don't need to tell here hahaha
Regarding the TNB, I think it wont be a big deal if youre staying there. My attachment below I refer from TNB website.
I appreciate all the comments on lot15 so that I know the pros n cons of this project. Cheers
