i went to PDC yesterday. the price is from 188k and each floor increase 1k, 8 units per floor with no swimming pool. Have 2 facing, one is facing bukit jambul(evening sun), another one is facing penang bridge(morning sun). Not much unit left now especially facing penang bridge. The land tenure is leasehold, they now applied to convert to freehold.

February 12, 2008 at 1:11 PMAnonymous

The unit is good and can consider cheap. But the surrounding area is quite bad. At present, there is high rise apartment surrouding the site. Some more, the road side is full of car parked by nearby aparment.

February 12, 2008 at 1:46 PMAnonymous

This apartment is good,who can know the complete date ?

February 12, 2008 at 4:13 PMAnonymous

will be completed in 2011

February 22, 2008 at 12:04 AMTambun Biscuit

thx for d comment. However, my personal point of view, if the surrounding is bad no ponit. Coz everyday u gotto bypass there...just imaging the traffic when u out from hse to work and back home looking for carpark. Furthermore when friends visit u, also problem. dun u think so?

February 25, 2008 at 4:56 PMAnonymous

When the construction start? Does anyone know?

February 26, 2008 at 4:17 PMAnonymous

As for today, there is still no activities at the site. I think this project already opened for booking since 2 years ago? is any purchaser for this project has signed the S&P?

February 28, 2008 at 12:59 PMAnonymous

anyone is buyer for this project? what is the status now?

March 4, 2008 at 7:39 PMAnonymous

i booked one unit. still many units more but most of them left are at higher floors which means higher price.
s&p estimate to sign some time in august.
apparently they are applying to convert to freehold and will know the results some time in august.

i personally don't like a few things.
- there's only one car park. More parking is not available so you'll have to find parking outside.
- have to wait till august to sign the s&p (who can guarantee it's gonna be august, right?)
- only 2 lifts.

i bought it anyway. my mum loves it. good for her as she depends on public transport. wet market at walking distance, must be a heaven for her!

March 4, 2008 at 9:20 PMAnonymous

huh? S&P this August? still applying for freehold and result on August?

i was told in september 2006... that S&P and the land status available by April 2007... and completion date to be 2010...

March 5, 2008 at 2:04 PMAnonymous

gosh..it's all the 'sales talk' and promises.

heard they will launch it this year, but again, we can't be sure.

i heard that they have cleared the site only, but i've not seen it personally.

March 5, 2008 at 3:14 PMAnonymous

I booked because developer with good reputation but they delay..delay...& complete date also keep delay!Hope this project can going faster.

March 27, 2008 at 3:29 PMAnonymous

Haa.. sorry. I just back from PDC, no more non-bumi lot. All sold out and almost 90% non bumi lots.

When asked about Bumi lot release, the answers was not until it completed which is 2011 and that time price will go up.

Again, process to get FREEHOLD still on going.

Anyway, I've booked 1 unit too. Few good points explained, but to add on, mostly chinese almost 90% non bumi lot.


March 27, 2008 at 8:00 PMAnonymous


Do you know when the construction will start?

Thank you

March 28, 2008 at 2:04 AMAnonymous

Construction has started, but slow. They are taking sweet time. According to PDC lady, they are trying very hard to get the FREEHOLD title. So, lets be patient.

March 28, 2008 at 2:07 AMAnonymous

One shortcoming that bother me most is the car part. Only 1 carpark. No extra carpark to purchase. Limited carpark. Nowadays in Penang, one household mostly got 2 cars.

March 29, 2008 at 11:21 PMAnonymous

Wow, all non-bumi unit sold out already! Just have thought to sale office to take a look... too late :-(

Any one know that what is the property will be builded in front of the IXORA HEIGHT which just at the road side of Jln Bkt Gambier. I saw that land has been covered with 'medium cost...' when I pass by.

April 1, 2008 at 1:11 AMAnonymous

Property build in front of Ixora heights is a "low cost" apartment, also developed by PDC. Around 540 units. No car park for each units. Just some car park on first come first serve basis.

So..that area will be very very congested after both project completed. You will face a serious parking problem.. no doubt.. Now I am staying in Tmn Jublee Phase 5. Everyday facing the car park problem. Sometime have to park my car along the main road, just beside the hawker center super tanker. My car is now full of scratch just because parking on the main road..

Even if you able to find a parking near my condo, the die flower, leave will fall on your car and make your car very very dirty..

No doubt.. car park is a very important thing to consider if you want to purchase Ixora Height..

April 1, 2008 at 1:26 AMAnonymous

This is to keep track what PDC sales girl has had told the different purchaser.

1. September 2006
One of the buyer depsosit to book 1 unit. Get RM 2888 early bird discount. Finally withdrawn and take back 90% of the deposit due to no progress on the project.

2. August 2007
Another buyer,my friend, deposit RM 5000. He was told that S&P will be signed at December 2007. PDC is trying hard to convert to freehold.
(Source:My friend)

3. December 2007
Another guy,which is me, deposit RM 5000 to book a unit. He was told that S&P will be signed at April 2008. PDC is trying hard to convert to freehold.

4. December 2007
I was going to PDC boost in Pesta, They put a big big advertisement board there saying that this project will complete at June 2009!

5. Someone from Internet saying that he was told by the sales girl that S&P will be signed at August 2008, delay again..

So, do you belive that it is possible to complete the project on June 2009, after you sign the S&P on August 2008? just within 1 year????

I doubt, and abit regret.

April 1, 2008 at 8:01 AMAnonymous

Seen 1 household mostly got 2 cars. You should buy 2 Smart share in 1 car park. It should be enough space. Consider about it... ;)

All people always "Want cheapest and get biggest" where can be found? Honestly i am a buyer for this project and i am happy had a unit. i believe "Goodness will come at the end". just wait and see...

April 5, 2008 at 9:25 AMAnonymous

Doesn't anyone know what is the project happening in front of Phor Tay High School where was a car wash shop before been pilling?

April 5, 2008 at 9:42 PMAnonymous

Is a Petrol Station...

April 9, 2008 at 1:15 PMAnonymous

I baru saja call PDC sebelum lunch hour tadi.yang available sekarang tingkat 5 ke atas.harga 191000.bumi price 181450.i think i should booking it soon.

April 9, 2008 at 2:03 PMAnonymous

So PDC sales girl have told u when sign S&P and the completion date ?
The PDC boost in pesta and put BIG BIG advertisement board saying that this project CAN COMPLETE at JUNE 2009 IS IT REAL ?

April 10, 2008 at 9:38 AMAnonymous

April 10, 2008 at 1:25 PMAnonymous

it is just NEXT to cemetery. if you dun mind. Car park also a problem.

April 11, 2008 at 7:30 AMAnonymous

Isn't there still have unit left for Non bumi lot? can anyone update here?

April 12, 2008 at 2:34 PMAnonymous

yes.. still a few units left. (3 or 4 units).

April 15, 2008 at 1:40 PMAnonymous

I went to PDC just now. Figure out few things:
1. Ixora Heights already get the freehold verbally.

2. If the demand of extra car park is high, they will clear the cemetery near the Ixora Heights to build a seprate car park. Each car park will cost you RM 17K if you want to purchase.

3. The project site is now doing test pile(i dont know what is it), estimate to be completed on end of 2010.

April 16, 2008 at 6:05 PMAnonymous

Someone is willing to sell me his booking for 3K, any idea if this is legal? and if yes, does it worth 3K?

April 16, 2008 at 6:13 PMAnonymous

Is the "someone" your friend?? If the someone is an anonymous then better don't trust. Maybe they are the conmen...

April 16, 2008 at 7:18 PMAnonymous

Hi, May i know which floor he/she sell out? As i know booking fee is 5k, how could he/she willing to sell you 3k only and lost 2k. At this moment Ixora will be 'hot cake' soon...

April 16, 2008 at 9:07 PMAnonymous

the person will withdraw his booking and i need to pay him 3K for that. At the same time, i will get to register myself with PDC... sounds right?

April 17, 2008 at 1:42 PMAnonymous

forgot to mention, when i place my booking with PDC, i need to pay the 5K as well.

April 17, 2008 at 4:33 PMAnonymous

CT, you mentioned regret booking it. Any intention to sell it now?

April 17, 2008 at 9:05 PMAnonymous

Which the person sell to you, if you dont mind can share with us?

April 18, 2008 at 3:54 PMAnonymous

That person is a friend. Anyway, he has decided to hold on now after hearing the potential of it being freehold. :-( No deal for me

May 2, 2008 at 4:51 PMAnonymous

I passed thorugh the project site just now, & notice that the development is beside a cementry.

May 7, 2008 at 6:35 PMAnonymous

The only units left sell at 200K only. Can't get a condo with this price anymore this day.

May 10, 2008 at 2:23 AMAnonymous

Hmm..a project which has been launched 2 years ago, no signs of development, still waiting for freehold.. bad news man. But look on the bright side, at least some lucky units have a splendid view of the adjacent cemetery.

May 14, 2008 at 1:37 AMAnonymous

no end sight for the delay.. haihhh... better start looking for new projects... ;-(

May 15, 2008 at 8:15 AMAnonymous

Hi, All,
Ya lo. How long we still need to wait? Just wonder why still didn't have any update at project site or from PDC... :(
Will they cancel the project?

May 15, 2008 at 6:36 PMAnonymous

i jz went pass the place..not even test piling done.. if they keep delaying it, how are they going to support the raw material price increase?
are they going to charge us for the price increase?

May 16, 2008 at 3:52 PMAnonymous

Hi all, let me make some comments here on this project, FYI, I am the resident in Taman Jubilee phase 5 apartment which located just next to this project site.
Everyday when I walk to the lift, I can see the construction site from my floor. Below are all facts:

1) From my view, next to the site on the left is 5-storey apartment, in front are 2 low cost flats, behind it off course is my apartment (25-floor building 2 blocks), on the right is another construction site by PDC for low cost flat. Ixora is surrounded by all these buildings. There is only one entrance to the main road as the only road in front of it had been converted to one-way. Imagine yourself of the traffic flow and eye-view.

2) Along the main road (which had already been expanded), a petrol station & Phor Thay school is coming up next to big hawker centre SUPER TANKER, a wet market and a already-built Pan Plaza (less than 10% shop lots are in business), traffic flow is moderate (except weekend’s morning) at this moment but when all this in operation, you can just imagine yourself.

3) The construction site space is pretty small, that’s why they can only build one block 148 units. This is also the reason why there will be no swimming pool there. If you really go there and have a look, there is no space at all for extra car park.

4) It is leasehold property, and the real thing is I have observed for quite long everytime when I walk to the lift, I always look to the site and almost for 1year+ I did not see any progress. Even the Phor Thay school which is building later is now constructing to sixth floor 70% done. The project is very slow in time. Only lately I saw they bring the worker containers, steel bar for piling & the cari makan. No doubt they have clear up the area & barricade it but the actual constructing work has never been started yet. If piling I am the 1st one to hear the sound and feel the vibration.

5) After all, the good thing are the maintenance fee is not expensive just RM100, the price of less than RM210K for a ~1000sqf apartment is not bad & PDC won’t bankrupt. If just look at the apartment interior itself, it is kinda worth. For those mothers who like to go market & send kids to school, this is a right place. Judge by yourself.

May 27, 2008 at 5:21 PMAnonymous

To anonymous post on May 16, 2008 12:52 AM

Great analysis. I would like to add further:

1. Traffic is the main problem for most of the apartment/ condo in Penang. Even Bayswater, there are going to built Platino, Pearl Regency, and a low cost apartment plus the traffic from E-Gate and Tesco. They will have same problem sooner or later, although selling at sky high. Hope after PDC low cost flat completed, there will be new road connected to Yeap Choy Ee road to ease the traffic. Who have info on this?

3. The space is small, so, lower density which is a good point. Also, some people prefer without swimming pool because the maintenance cost is high, and a lot of people not using it. Cost saving.

4. Cannot compare to Phor Thay. They was helped by government. Most of the project took about 1 year after launching to start the construction. Some even longer. So, no big deal.

5. Agree. This property is more suitable for aged people (40+). Young single generation might not prefer this, unless budget constraint.

Just for discussion. I may be wrong.

May 27, 2008 at 8:15 PMAnonymous

wah, need to wait 1+ year just start contruction? fair to all purchaser?

May 28, 2008 at 8:38 AMAnonymous

Just to be confirm, isn't it started? if yes, SnP will ready to sign soon, right?

Actually what the card access system is apply in Ixora? can anyone describe a little bit? Appreciate for your info. Thanks

May 29, 2008 at 10:30 AMAnonymous

I just stay next to the contruction site, actually they have completed the piling work. Just that they used a more advance equipment where they push the pile into the land, so you will not hear any sound or feel the vibration. Now I can see that they start doing the molding, just that the work is a bit slow.
What I understand from them is that they are still waiting for free hold, so they will not ask the purchaser to sign the S&P so soon.

June 2, 2008 at 10:21 AMAnonymous

dear all,
as you all know, price of raw material has increased alot.. if they didnt ask us to sign SPA, does that mean that they can still ask us to pay the difference in case they hike up the price?

June 2, 2008 at 11:21 AMAnonymous


I went to the PDC office few weeks ago to ask the same question (increase of raw material cost). Their replies was there will not be any changes in the price as they already have the agreement with the subcontractor on the material.
If this is true, then is worth holding the property as we are not able to get the same price for similar property in the market now.

June 5, 2008 at 5:20 PMAnonymous

"We are pleased to inform that we have obtained the freehold status for Ixora Heights and contruction of this roject is progessing well. With this we look forward to your signing of the S&P in August 2008. We will share with you more details pertaining to the signing of the S&P as the date draws near.

Should you need futher clarification, please do not hesitate to contact Norhaizan at 04-6340112 or Mary at 04-6340114"

This is the letter I just received from PDC today.

June 5, 2008 at 11:55 PMAnonymous

congratulation to all owner for Ixora

June 6, 2008 at 7:34 AMAnonymous

Just to be confirm, isn't it the price will raise a little bit due to obtained the freehold status?
Because when i place my booking, the sales girl inform me before. do you heard also? Thanks

June 6, 2008 at 9:37 AMAnonymous

The price will increase, but if you already pay your booking, the price should be according to the price when you place your booking.

Hi frends,

I am the resident opposite of Ixora Heights. The work is in progress but seem like a bit slow. They are working fr 8.30am-5.30pm except sun (and not every sat too). I jz paid the deposit a few weeks ago, so can someone share about which bank provide the best package?

CIMB+public bank officer told me they cant proceed to apply the loan due to they wan d land title but according to PDC personnel, land title is not a required supported document to apply the loan. They will not hv the land title so soon, expected Jul/Aug but not so ll it be delayed again…Any ideas/comments on this matter?

Is anyone alrd get the loan approval and start pay the loan since the project has been launched since Year 2006?

Appreciate for your time to give me the valuable advices/comments.

FYI...The shopping complex near to Ixora Heights is Sunshine super market. Do you think this is a good news or bad news?

June 14, 2008 at 9:11 AMAnonymous

Hi Apple,

Normally the loan agreement will follow only after S&P. However now you may start looking for the loan since the signing of S&P will happen in August.
You can submit the booking receipt and some other supporting document to bank for applying the loan and they should give you the offer letter within 1-2 weeks time.

Here is the link http://www.iproperty.com.my/financing/loan_rate.asp where you can find a list of package offered by all the bank in Malaysia. This might not be the latest rate, but at least as a start you can take this as a reference.

June 15, 2008 at 8:23 PMFern Ling

seems the price is cheaper than the others but due to the car park that cause inconvenient.

Anyhow, anyone knows any upcoming apartment cost rm200k++?

June 15, 2008 at 9:26 PMAnonymous


Thks for giving me the useful links.

I am one of the resident nearby the Ixory Height.The Ixory Height is a great project but not in the strategy location.
1.The traffic there is terrible,a lot of cars park a the roadside. Even you don't have parking problem but the cars at the roadside definetely will be very anoying.
2.Safety.Safety in that area is not good.If you got notice the newspaper, alot of crime happend there.
Pls think twice before buy it.

June 16, 2008 at 10:03 PMAnonymous

Thank you for your advice. But i thinks these aren't "new" to heard about. What the exciting for us are the latest status construction and when can sign the S&P.
Seen you are one of the resident nearby the Ixory Height and not a owner. I wish you can update the construction here will be very appreciate and value for us.
Thanks again.

June 19, 2008 at 12:59 PMAnonymous

is there any available units left?

June 23, 2008 at 12:30 AMAnonymous

yeah..those facing the cemetery..

June 24, 2008 at 9:04 AMAnonymous

the progress for this project is very very slow. I think need to wait until end of next year to complete. The project opposite the Ixora Height started later than it but seems will be completed faster .

June 24, 2008 at 9:06 AMAnonymous

No unit left according to PDCP.

June 25, 2008 at 12:37 PMAnonymous

May i how much your price range? Thanks.

June 26, 2008 at 4:50 PMAnonymous

10k for withdrawing my booking and you can buy direct from PDC at launching price (according to PDC sale staff, price hike by 5-10% by 1st July, but better verify with them first).

June 28, 2008 at 10:35 PMAnonymous

Sorry, although this may be confusing, I got further clarification that price up by July, but not being specific on 1st. Again, sorry.


June 30, 2008 at 2:32 PMAnonymous

How much the price will raise up? Can anyone share with, thank you.

July 1, 2008 at 9:15 PMAnonymous


according to PDC, the price ll not increase for those alrd pay the deposit. But, the project may take a few years to complete, might delay since the materials cost increase drastically. The price hike up for those yet to purchase(bumi lot).

anyone face the problem to apply loan as the master land title yet to release?...hai, alrd delay for >6mths liao. Bank dun1 proceed.

July 2, 2008 at 10:52 AMAnonymous

I am new buyer.
May i know what is "master land title" mean? can anyone share with? Thank you

July 2, 2008 at 1:20 PMAnonymous

The price hike up for those yet to purchase(bumi lot), AND for those transfer name to another person (pdc consider this as new buyer too)

July 3, 2008 at 10:38 PMAnonymous

1) Thought no facility, maintenance fee must be reasonable but that's not the case, maintenance fee damn expensive 18 cents per sq.! First I tot I heard it wrongly.

2)Master bedroom with multile angle, not easily to put furniture unless you hire an Interior Designer.

July 4, 2008 at 12:13 AMAnonymous

RM100/960 sq.ft = RM0.104 per sq.ft., simple math isn't it.

Agree, masterbedroom installed with multiple corner bay windows, good from external but a minor drawback for furniture placement. Those with 6ft wardrobe have no problem, but anything more than that need to be custom made.

July 7, 2008 at 11:58 AMAnonymous

Signing of S&P on 2nd of August.

July 7, 2008 at 12:30 PMAnonymous

isn't that the mantainance fee is fixed ar rm100 per mnth? anyone know is it real that the price is hiking up for those who purchase after July?

July 7, 2008 at 5:04 PMAnonymous

Doesn't anyone heard extra car park will be build for sell? Thanks?

yup, fixed at rm100 for standard unit. deluxe & garden unit cost more.

Call up PDC staff, unwilling to give price hike details, but comments will be adjusted soon.

July 7, 2008 at 8:07 PMAnonymous

I am one of the happy buyer of Ixora, and it never crosses my mind "if" there will be xtra car park available for purchase. Imagine those buying the deluxe 1860sq.ft. unit, it is impossible to live without xtra car park(s). It's just a matter of time. Currently, xtra car park available by request, PDC give no guarantee of availability. Two pricing: 10k or 17k, details not available, sorry.

My friend, a valuator, also doing sub-sale service, just recently sold Jubilee block 25 & 27 (two high rise nearby) for RM177k & RM179k each (both with 2 car park and kitchen cabinet installed), which come to abt RM24x/sq.ft. Consider Ixora start with RM188k for 960sq.ft, really value for money by now and much appealing once O.C. obtained. Ixora falls short at without swimming pool and narrow access road.

July 8, 2008 at 12:01 AMAnonymous

Maintenance fee is not RM100 as most of you think. Has called up PDC, the staff confirmed for 960sq ft., the fee is RM169 means RM0.18 per sq ft.

July 8, 2008 at 9:18 AMAnonymous

the maintenance fee is rm169 without swimming pool? so expensive ...

July 8, 2008 at 1:45 PMAnonymous

so far the house price is still the same but the maintenance fee was increased from 100 per mnth to rm0.18 per sq ft(rm169 for standard units). The maintenance fee is consider high for those without swimming pool and sports facilities. No extra car park available.

July 9, 2008 at 9:57 AMAnonymous

PDC will update all buyers the hiked in maintenance fee soon. PDC claim will go down to RM0.15 after numerous complains since the increase, but I personally think should go down to RM0.10 as default since there're no full condo facilities. Those existing buyers, if u agree with me, please voice out you dissatisfaction to PDC and let work together to get the maintenance fee down to a reasonable level. If you too busy to write any feedback/complain letter, I will have the template ready soon to share. Please reach me at myciteco@yahoo.com

July 12, 2008 at 5:54 PMAnonymous

I'm one of the buyer. I wud rather concern or more worry if PDC drop the maintenance fee to rm0.10 per sq ft.
Of course no one would like to pay high maintenance but one have to be realistic. Pls go and survey for those apt that get this rate were at least 350 units and above. If the apt with 148 units in total only charge rm0.10 per sq ft. How can the property mgmt afford to maintain this apt well, ask yrself. at the end, the one who suffer is still the genuine residents, unless the buyers are pure investors who merely wants to grab quick profits out of it.

July 13, 2008 at 9:05 AMeric

U r right. I think u did do some surveyer on penang island apartment maintenance fee. But RM169 still up of average. Ideal one maybe below Rm150. But if PDC can really provide high class maintenance service especially in security and cleanliness of the apartment. Strict action on those residents who not paying their monthly maintenance fees and public the account for the residents. Means that everything make it transparent. Then even RM200 per month is worth. Am I right?

July 16, 2008 at 1:11 AMAnonymous

hello guys, its PDC la.. how well do you tink they will manage yur condo? anyway, dun let the narrow driveway leading to the apartment drive you crazy...

July 16, 2008 at 8:52 AMAnonymous

hi I m the resident nearby, again I must say this project progress extremely slow like turtle, for almost 3 years not even 1st flr been built. Somemore PDC is selling balance units now, as i know few months back they already said no more left, haha must be ppl withdraw & good luck to all buyers, have fun!!

Big Mouth

July 16, 2008 at 8:29 PMAnonymous

FYI, national squash player Nicole David was awarded a unit of Ixora Heights by the state government. Haha my dear buyers can play squash with her some afternoon, Ooops.....sorry, i just noticed that there is no squash court, ooi...then what facility they have??

July 17, 2008 at 1:11 AMAnonymous

Yup. Indeed quite a number of buyers withdrew, those buyers even willing to forego the penalty of RM500 deducted from the booking.

July 17, 2008 at 8:49 AMAnonymous

Personally i feel the place is a good investment. Low density project in a high density surrounding. Somemore no price increase for the balance units.

July 17, 2008 at 11:51 AMAnonymous

Hi, resident nearby,
Can you share with us, how many worker per day there?
This project really slow. Just passby the field looking from outside, piling still in process since last month.
Correct me if i wrong. Thanks

July 17, 2008 at 12:00 PMAnonymous

share some photos will be the best. :) Thanks

July 18, 2008 at 11:49 AMAnonymous


Everyday there are more than 20 workers working on the site. Not sure this is many or few as I never observe other construction site. On top of that, they will work until 7-8pm and even saturday and sunday.

The piling has actually been completed for quite sometime and now they are doing the ground beam.

I have snapped some photo of the construction site. Those who like to have the photo please leave you email here.

I called PDC today as well, and they told me that the maintenance fee is RM0.13 per sf, so for standard unit will be around RM125 per month. Sinking fund is 10% of the maintenance fees.

July 19, 2008 at 9:57 PMAnonymous

Today morning PDC hold balloting for additional car park, 17k per car park yer, expensive but more than 30+ house owners bet on their luck for 16 available car park, about 1:2 ratio ler... Congratulate to those lucky folks.

July 21, 2008 at 10:10 AMAnonymous

I just knew that the Ixora Height parking system is using the first come first serve basis.It means you will not have your "own car park lot".I personally don't like this idea because it's not fair,somebody may transfer their access pass to other if they have more than one car.What you guys think?

July 21, 2008 at 11:25 AMAnonymous

Most condo practice in AND out system. If you drive in, but without drive out, there not other car pass thru the security barrier even with the access card.

Really, no car park allocated? Sure bo? If no allocate car park, then it mean the car park not belong to the purchase parcel....

July 21, 2008 at 9:43 PMAnonymous

I just went to PDC and they told me still got >20 units to sell as alot of onwer looking for new project.

July 22, 2008 at 8:28 AMAnonymous

Hi,latest anonymous
As I know till early of July, still got 34 units left wo. Why now just got 20 +. The other sold out liao? Are you IH owner? Sound good if can sold out 10+ units within 1 or 2 wks. Not bad.

July 22, 2008 at 8:57 AMAnonymous

Hi IH owner
Don't worry. Already confirm with PDC staff. Each units of IH project will attached with 1 own carpark. But the carpark will just allocated to its owner after the OC obtained. Not "1st come 1st serve" policy. Cheer.

July 22, 2008 at 9:06 AMAnonymous

Hi all
According to PDC staff. There will be 2 road to access to IH in future after the project completed. One is the existing road which we need to pass thru Taman Jubilee Phase 5. The new one is direct access from Yeap Choy Yee main road.

July 22, 2008 at 9:54 AMAnonymous


I went to PDC this morning, they said that the car park will be alloted to each unit upon completion of the apartment. I don't think it would be free parking also, since they already have car park to each unit, why they want to purposely make up a mess here.

On top of that, they also told me that all the unit already sold out and no more unit available except for bumi lot, and for bumi lot they will never release and must be sell to Bumi.

July 22, 2008 at 10:43 AMAnonymous

Oya, forgot to mention. 34 units left is bumi lots. Wah...bumi lot also get hot.. Good.

July 22, 2008 at 11:00 AMAnonymous

The 2nd access road is a 40' one way backlane thru the upcoming low cost housing of PDC, from Yap Choi Yee. Personal thinking, since is one way street, it won't benefits IH resident much but it will further congested the main access road to jubilee especially when taking into account the xtra traffic from the upcoming LC appartment. I was informed sale & marketing mgmt is aware of this issue and has escalated for further analysis.

July 24, 2008 at 9:59 AMAnonymous

anonymous said,

IX buyer,
heard the additional carpark was sold at RM17K, so how you can get a unit at RM3K. Pls check before you buy.

July 24, 2008 at 10:02 AMAnonymous

was told that the extra carpark was sold at RM17K so how can you get one at RM3K? Better check what you are buying before you being con.

July 24, 2008 at 10:14 AMAnonymous

3k commision la... aiiyo....

July 24, 2008 at 8:13 PMAnonymous


Are you sure you can sell the additional car park. When we went for the balloting, the lawyer said that the additional car park will form the accessory parcel and under the same S&P with the apartment. So if you want to sell, you need to sell both the apartment and additional car park.

July 25, 2008 at 12:31 AMAnonymous

correct, u can't sell the car park separately! i got one add. car park too. if can i also want to sell at 2k to earn extra


July 25, 2008 at 11:20 AMPositionT

You all are right. The management say no unless to sell together with the unit. If anyone interested to buy a standard unit with additional car park, please leave me your email.

July 26, 2008 at 1:23 PMAnonymous

Hi, Doesn't anyone know estimate how much the SnP Fee need to pay for bank, if we take 180k loan?
Thank you.

July 28, 2008 at 1:03 AMAnonymous

One uncertainty about this apt is the maintenance fee, though latest reveal stated RM14+ per month
but understood it is not final yet, PDC may reinstate to rm169 per month for standard unit or 18 cents per sq.

July 28, 2008 at 8:48 AMAnonymous

Have checked with PDC, confirmed the maintenance fee is at RM0.13 p.sq.ft.

July 29, 2008 at 8:43 AMAnonymous

anyone knows that how much is the lawyer fee when signing the S&P?

July 29, 2008 at 2:50 PMAnonymous

lawyer fee for signing the S&P is rm4000++.

July 29, 2008 at 3:30 PMAnonymous

Just called PDCP, the legal fee for S&P is around RM1500 for standard unit. The fee can be paid during the S&P signing or later depends on the selected lawyer. There will be few participating lawyers during the S&P. We may choose accordingly.

July 29, 2008 at 3:54 PMAnonymous

Yes, according to PDC, they have provide panel lawyer with special rate >2k on this weekend signing SnP.
But why got Anonymous say 4k++. can you share with us here?

July 29, 2008 at 5:43 PMAnonymous

I think wat anonymous mentioned just now was included the legal fee of bank.

July 30, 2008 at 11:28 PMAnonymous

Anyone interested, got one unit to release, 5th flr, RM5k to transfer my booking, pls provide email.

July 31, 2008 at 12:59 AMAnonymous

Those who interest to transfer their unit to others, I afraid the window of opportunity is already closed. The PDC management is already aware of this under-table stuffs (in actual is a violation of their policy) and already prohibit their front-line from processing this kind of transfer activity. If anyone feel wanna sell, PDC is more than happy to take it back. And to those interested buying one, beware there're brokers asking for $ and claimed to release their units. (i am not discounting there're genuine owners wanna release their units too).

Why i know? bcs i tried to sell mine and hitted the wall...

July 31, 2008 at 1:10 PMmeicy

Out of 10% 1st installment, IC photocopy & the invitation letter, Is there any charge ($) need to bring? Please advice. Thanks

August 2, 2008 at 5:04 PMAnonymous

Quite number of buyers have signed up S&P today. Legal fee also going reasonable cheap where PDC workout good package for their client. Legal Fee for both S&P and Loans, total all-in come out to be below RM4k. Total 5 legal firms for the buyer to choose from.

Several banks also there (CIMB, Hong Leong), if the buyer is looking for financing.

Tomorrow will have another day.

August 4, 2008 at 7:40 AMAnonymous

jut confirmed with pdc, every unit will be allocated with one parking lot and the maintenance fees in RM0.13 cent p sqt. so for standard unit maintenance fees is RM137( plus with 10% sinking fund)

August 7, 2008 at 1:26 PMAnonymous

anyone knows that is the S&P included the extra car park?

August 7, 2008 at 11:22 PMAnonymous

Look at the latest brochure distributed last weekend. Expected date of completion is July 2009.
Is PDC kidding???

August 8, 2008 at 8:32 AMAnonymous

I tot it will be completed by end of 2010 and obtain OC by early of 2011 which I was told by the PDC staff b4.

August 8, 2008 at 12:20 PMAnonymous

Ya, Ixora is a single block structure, one year time is more than enough for the above-the-ground construction works. FYI, for high rise, the most time consuming parts is the foundation work. I have confirm with PDC management upon signing SPA, construction should be completed by end of 2009, while expected OC by early 2010. And all bumi-unit will be released after OC with a 20% increament (if no drastic rise again after 2009) due to current rise in material cost (and typically extra 5-10% value appreciation after OC obtained). So, those who intended to sell their unit, practice some patience can earn you a beautiful sum of extra pocket money.

Some of us may be wondering why PDC so aggresive promoting Ixora if 80% sold? Bcs housing regulation stated: sufficient promotion efforts selling to bumi must be taken before the "left-over" can be converted to non-bumi.

August 11, 2008 at 7:55 PMAnonymous

already get the result or not ? FREEHOLD or LEASEHOLD ? what is the price per unit ?

August 12, 2008 at 8:51 AMAnonymous

I don't think it can be completed end of next year because now I see the progress of Ixora Height is getting slow after building on the foundation. I have noticed almost a month, the project still remain at the ground floor. I think the developer just do some work before you pay you sign the S&P. Completed in 2009 seems impossible.

August 13, 2008 at 12:07 AMAnonymous

Kejuruteraan Makmur Jaya - Is this name ring a bell to you? NO???
This is a small bumi company who's responsible to construct Ixora Heights. Have checked their track records, almost none!

Really doubt the efficiency of this company. To complete the project in less than 2 years? not likely. Even if they can complete within 3 years consider an achievement! Not to mention about the quality or finishing of the project.

August 13, 2008 at 10:18 AMAnonymous

If we analyze the article, those projects mentioned in KL are mostly medium-high cost condo. In Penang, can u list me any new upcoming medium cost high rise calling pricing below RM220 psf at strategic location (dun compare low cost plz)? Yes D'Piazza, but sold out and sub-sale calling price as high as RM380k (RM277 psf).

Speaking of any insiders, they would tell you property in Penang island din even affected much during 1997 crisis (ok, sure it might stagnant but not drop). But certainly, there’re reports that our situation now is much worst than 1997, but the scenario is different, at least we dun have drastic raw material inflation issue back then. We are likely to hit on stagflation, which is new in our history.

August 14, 2008 at 4:31 PMAnonymous

Good news to Ixora owners.... Latest updates from PDC, out of the 20+ bumi lots, the waiting list has already breach hundred! Plenty of real hot demand even the price will be 20% higher upon release!

But due to social responsibility, then can only release the bumi lots upon OC, which may create longer waiting list.

August 14, 2008 at 10:33 PMAnonymous

Don't count the eggs before it hatch. High number of waiting list for new project, esp. medium cost is normal. If you go to IJM, they even can easily show u few hundreds too. Put yr name in waiting list no need to pay anything, just yr name and contact no.

August 14, 2008 at 10:53 PMAnonymous

Sour grapes drop by once a while. Just ignore it.

Currently, Penang new mid cost condo/apartment (< 2 yrs old) have breached rm260 psf, while under construction one have reach rm280 psf. Those highly goreng by developer one, like the Spring, has exceeded RM330 psf. Ixora start with rm200 psf for a freehold, ample of room to boom. But too bad, PDC claimed they cannot help to goreng like IJM bcs of social responsibility and political concerns. Let the market speak for itself.

August 21, 2008 at 12:45 AMAnonymous

Anyone still haven't signed S&P?

August 21, 2008 at 2:26 PMAnonymous

When i asked about the lawyer fees, the price is different when i signed for the S&P, RM100 more.
The lawyer told me that this is becuase PDC charge them the printing cost then they charge back to us. Sound not fair right... but can we change? Answer is NO. furthermore, I ask the lawyer to give me the receipt, she told me no receipt is given becuase this is at discounted price. Is tht true?

August 21, 2008 at 3:08 PMAnonymous

who is your lawyer?what is their name? terrible lawyer..

August 21, 2008 at 3:18 PMAnonymous

According to bar of council, lawyer suppose not to cut their rate to get biz. Most lawyer will not issue you the bills, but most will issue you receipt.

PDC charge me RM150 for the doc printing. So, you have bought it at an discounted price.

Wondering how much legal fees you have paid?

August 21, 2008 at 3:39 PMAnonymous

Almost RM3800

August 21, 2008 at 3:42 PMAnonymous

Is that just legal fee or already include stamp duty for your loan facilities?

August 21, 2008 at 4:44 PMAnonymous

Include the stamp duty

August 21, 2008 at 4:54 PMAnonymous

Food for thought: Always make sure a receipt is given when a transaction has taken place. This is the only record or proof of payment you have, especially if is cash payment. NO Receipt NO pay simple. Don't be afraid to ask, it is your right.

August 21, 2008 at 10:24 PMAnonymous

Loans + S&P legal fee (incl. stamping) for only RM3800? If yes, damn cheap, even with additional RM150.

August 21, 2008 at 10:59 PMAnonymous

rm3800, it is still below the market price for legal fees. I won't call it big discount, but i understand you feeling about the surprise rm100. However, you should feel quite the other way once you visit the upcoming penang property fair, this i guarantee. Good choice, enjoy your investment.

current still have any unit left? how many sqf? how much?

August 24, 2008 at 11:36 PMAnonymous

Ya, about 20 over units left, all bumi lots. But, waiting list have been 130 overs last week. PDC very strict, do not allow any transfer before SPA signed. And on 3 August, PDC hold SPA signing for all purchasers. Afraid you either have to queue for the bumi lots (extra 20% launching price), or go for sub-sale unit, either way have to wait until OC obtained.

August 26, 2008 at 1:23 PMAnonymous

can anyone tell me what is the current price for 1090 sq & where can i see the sample house?thank you...


August 26, 2008 at 11:26 PMAnonymous

Cindy, all 1090 sq ft. unit sold out. Now left only standard unit for bumi.

August 27, 2008 at 12:12 AMAnonymous

There is no sample house. 1090 sq ft layout is exactly the same as standard unit except with garden, which its photo oredi posted above.

August 28, 2008 at 7:33 AMAnonymous

Hi, for interested buyer, i have 1 standard unit >10 floor. Could you mention your budget so i shall call you for more further.

August 29, 2008 at 1:06 AMAnonymous

I think the maintenance fee for Ixora is rather expensive RM0.13 without pool or much facility, unless PDC can add some safety feature and facility which make it worthwhile.

August 29, 2008 at 1:23 AMAnonymous

From the previous post, mentioned PDC will perform some analysis about lack of parking space surrounding the area, what is the outcome? or the so called "analysis" only a marketing gimmick by PDC, try to entertain the buyer??

August 29, 2008 at 1:25 AMAnonymous

Ixora Owner, the unit u have facing where? one or two car park?
can you sell the unit even the project still under construction?

August 29, 2008 at 10:25 AMAnonymous

RM0.13 expensive? then you go and try the Spring, great project with no pool either, big deal? How much is their maintenance fee? Just FYI: Ixora came with Asses card activated lift security system. Low density is the beauty.

I stayed in many medium condos with swimming pool & badminton court. I realize the facilities are not utilized by residents, but mostly by outsiders during weekend, very noisy. Those condo residents may unde4rstand the pains of paying more than what you need. Glad Ixora don't have this trouble.

To answer the other anonymous enquiry about car park: ya it expected to be any issue. PDC issued small amount of car park thru balloting. The multi-storey car park so far still a under planning, call it marketing talk if you wish.

Before the VP, the property is now fully own by the developer, so no sub-sale can effectively take place before key hand-over. But you can always booking if you wish.

August 29, 2008 at 12:45 PMAnonymous

yes, agree with you. i thinks maybe some people dont know how much the maintenance fees for The Spring. RM170 if you refer to The Spring blog.
As the banner highlight it is with Condo Design. it should be not bad, right? anyway, just stay tune. :)

August 29, 2008 at 3:08 PMAnonymous

I couldn’t agree more with the above statement, that medium cost condo pool is like public pool nowadays... lots of misuses, week enforcement of house policy and loosely assess security... RM0.13psf maintenance fee is not a problem personally, we don't want sub-standard services. As pointed out above, Ixora is a medium cost low density apartment (148 unit), as a residents, I am more than happy to pay a few dollar extra to enjoy good quality of living and privacy. And during the balloting, very obvious the buyer is the Chinese family type of owner. As of today, bumiputera response towards the project is not motivating given the reason Lipsin is highly Chinese populated area.

And with reference to the site layout, the land itself is relatively huge in comparison to the building block (although 70% sheltered car park). at least more open space.

We aware the downsides, no extra car park and congested lipsin area. Luckily, Ixora is toward the end of lipsin road.

August 29, 2008 at 5:16 PMAnonymous

But the beauty of The Spring, they given out 2 car parks for each unit. I think The Spring maintenance is about RM0.13 per sq ft. too.

August 29, 2008 at 6:40 PMAnonymous

Ppls here claimed Ixora Heights standard unit 960 sq ft. But passed by the site just now saw the board stated "JENIS A - 128 UNIT DGN. KELUASAN (820 kp) SEUNIT" means 820 kaki persegi/sq ft. only? other types (1000kp, 1600kp, 1650kp)

Error on the board or PDC shortchange the buyer?
Assume yr maintenance fee will be charged based on 960sq ft. rather than 820 sq ft.? short of 140 sq ft. consider a lot.

August 29, 2008 at 7:37 PMAnonymous

Foyer before main door (approx 106 sq.ft)and air-con latch (approx 34 sq.ft) not included into SPA. Resident allowed to fence up foyer after OC by grill (wondering if PDC allow extension with door+wall).

August 29, 2008 at 7:41 PMAnonymous

zHo, Ixora don't have the luxury for 2 car parks each unit, what a pity la. Lucky the spring.

August 29, 2008 at 8:42 PMAnonymous

excuse me ...nothing is free...so called 2 free carparks for spring is factored into the purchasing price of condo...when developers say 1 free car park..it doesnt really mean free...its already included in ur condo price..

September 3, 2008 at 1:25 PMteQuiLa_poP

anyone knows that how much is the legal fee for S&P and loan? Is there any changes after the latest 2009 budget announcement of 50% discount of stamp duty for property below rm250k?

September 3, 2008 at 2:49 PMteQuiLa_poP

Is there changes for stamp duty of our legal fee for S&P and loan after the announcement of 50% discount for property which is below rm250k in budget 2009?

September 3, 2008 at 10:01 PMPenangites

What is "Internet Ready" mean? is it free? broadband or wi-fi? This apt got CCTV?

September 5, 2008 at 3:38 PMteQuiLa_poP

will the stamp duty cheaper right now?since the gov announce 50% discount for property price lower than rm250k.

September 15, 2008 at 11:50 AMUnknown

Ixora Owner, is the unit still available? Am interested.

September 15, 2008 at 10:05 PMPositionT

Ya, Bumi units still avaiable. Plz register with PDC.

September 16, 2008 at 1:07 PMPenangites

During property fair, saw only 8 units left, all bumi lot.

October 23, 2008 at 2:55 PMAnonymous

i went to pdc on monday. got 3 units left on 14th floor. few at 15th, 16th, 17th and one 1st floor. all bumi lots. progression : 20%. freehold confirmed.

October 23, 2008 at 2:58 PMAnonymous

i went to pdc this week. 3 units left on 14th level. one each on 15th, 16th, 17th and 1st. all bumi lot. all below 300k. progress bout 20%. complete by 2010.

October 23, 2008 at 3:03 PMAnonymous

why would people still but ixora despite the area being congested with cars and has no view at all, with halaman kenanga, the other pdc project coming up? i was told the price is quite cheap for an apartment on island. is rm250/sq ft is cheap for penang? if i buy it at 200K, can i sell it at 300K upon completion? possible? please advise.

November 3, 2008 at 11:17 AMPositionT

Personal opinions:

1.250/sq for FH is slightly below average, but it depand on facilities and other factors.
2. Ixora is about ~rm200/sq if bought direct from developer dated few month back
3. If u buy at 200k with 90% loan, by time of OC, your cost should be around +RM230k (plus loan interest, penalty fee for premature settlement, legal fee, stamp duty, pre-OC maintainence fee & sinking fund etc). Dun forget the opportunity cost for the 1st 10% $$, which can help u generate extra intest if put into FD or tresure bills.

If anyone willing to sell at 240k upon OC, that would barely break even, and maybe with a little profit.

PDC can be consider as a responsible developer as they have improved a lot compare to those day. now i believe they can do better than before with the new state gov(PR). we have been their sub cont for past 3-4 yrs. actually you guys have to know who is the main contractor. check their past record. normally this type of developer quality much more related with the main contractor.

Up to date, isn't PDC still have few bumi units available for sale? If they do, wondering what's the rationale should someone buy sub-sale rather than direct from developer? Just a word of experience, a bumi lot once sold, it would be registered to Land Office/State Authority, and it can never allowed to be converted to international lot for sale to none-bumi.

My relative has bought this apt. Notice a few things:

1) Standard total built up: 960 sq ft, but the actual layout as stated is only 820 sq ft. Air cond deck (hollow place) and front entrance total 140 sq ft. classified as accessories parcel. Then, why PDC charge the maintenance fee based on 960 sq ft and not 820 sq ft. How can "a hollow place", just like airwell who put air cond deck can consider chargeable place.

2) Understood, in S&P there is no mention both lifts will equipped with security access card, unlike someone mentioned earlier here. In fact, CCTV is a must nowadays, but is missing in this project.

3)Additional car park is a necessity considering surrounding area is very congested. Hope the buyers of this project can
work together and continue to push PDC to find way to allocate/provide additional car park to purchase. Believe buyers are more than willing to pay. Don't expect PDC taking the initiative to find way on this issue as also stated earlier in this forum, merely a sales talk. The buyers should cooperate to push PDC to do so. Otherwise, you can forget about PDC doing you a favor. Especially the project now is still at the beginning stage, further adjustment is still possible, though not certain. If wait until the project almost complete, it's certainly impossible for PDC to do so.

4)As experience in my previous apartment, it's advisable for the owner of this project to form resident/owner group to deal with PDC now, to monitor the progress and quality of this apartment. PDC may have change management, but close monitoring is still required, considering small local contractor is taking charge of this project. Am also wondering the tag line "Apartment with Condo Design" is for real, as the spec used I've heard about this not suggesting as such.

I'm very interested in Mutiara Pica, another PDC project, but will certainly look very closely at the quality of this project first, before commit myself. Heard Mutiara Pica will only launch next year.
