Wat is the price for this appartment????

February 5, 2008 at 2:15 PMAnonymous

340k, fully furnished.

May 5, 2008 at 8:46 PMAnonymous

270k out of budget. looking for around 200 - 220k.

May 6, 2008 at 5:58 PMAnonymous

200-220K was the launching price. With this budget, you may get Gambier Height with fully renovation.
Other option is E-park, Sunny Ville.
Just my recommendation....

Can someone pls help me out here.. what's the exact sqft of the intermediate units? thx

May 18, 2008 at 1:37 PMAnonymous

the built up is 900..the units all are 700sq.feet,the 200 sq.feet,is the front entrance space and maybe the outside balcony s&p document..its only 700sq.feet

May 19, 2008 at 1:29 PMAnonymous

Thanks for the info. Appreciate it.


June 5, 2008 at 6:36 PMAnonymous

Anybody has any idea when the strata title will be obtained? Without the title, we can't do renovation outside the 700 sq. ft.

June 5, 2008 at 8:23 PMAnonymous


even if u have the strata title,u need to ask permisison from management if u need to do renovation outside the 700sq.feet,

June 6, 2008 at 1:48 PMAnonymous

Even if i wan to enclose the area outside (foyer)? My intention is not to hack the wall or anything major. Just close up the outside area with windows/doors. Please advise. Thanks

June 6, 2008 at 4:54 PMAnonymous

i think u have to ask management approval,tats the best way to get ur answer.

August 29, 2008 at 8:07 PMAnonymous

coz ijm not the TOP in malaysia
but only in penang...

around 300K for 900 sqf condo. worth to buy?

advice to buyer for own stay, search around first, some developer , with the help from property investor and agent , are very good in playing with the price.

be carefull if you are buying for own stay, look at the unit, think deeply what really you want , you need , then look again you pocket , think and think , then decide. No harm to have a look on more places

I know some of you are estate agent,
I from KL and planning to buy an apartment near to USM

I'm considering this University Palace and Desa Airmas. I wonder whether you (Estate Agent) can let me know more about this two aprtment and your opinion which one is better

Many thanks

Hi alan,

welcome to Penang.

I would prefer u-place than desa air mas as u-place is a low density apartment,quite clean,facilities are ok,and depending on the floor,u can get sea-view.

U-place is only 900sq.feet,its much smaller than desa air mas,so its great if ur moving with a single or couple.

Thanks,hope this helps.

any tenants faces this problem in U-Place
as reported on the weblink below?
Crack has been found on the wall and tiles as well.

April 30, 2009 at 7:45 PMFreddie Tan

This is interesting.
1) However, the properties has been 4 years now.

2) the crack by this unlucky owner looks serious for item 2) Others i think is minor, and I dont experience it either.
Maybe the quality is inconsitent??

my side is 2nd toilet flush has give way. Other than that, I have no issue on it.

To all Plaza Ivory residents,
3 units on the 8th floor was broken into yesterday (7 Feb 12). What is the management going to do about this? How will they prevent this thing from happening again? Is there a problem with our security? Please give your suggestions to the management on how we can improve the security at Plaza Ivory, so that we can feel safe at our own homes.

February 9, 2012 at 11:58 AMDot

I heard the strata title has been recently issued. Best is oust the current lacklustre Robert Bench Management and the residents form own management committee. That way the residents can maximise the management fee for self interests such as increasing quality of security.

Interested to buy a unit.

Is the quality of the building OK?

Pls help to comment?
