Cheang... surprise to know this happened to you. perhaps you should seek legal redress.

If the sales person of property developer made a mistake by giving the wrong pricing leading to subsequent signing of S&P at that price, they have to bear that & not adjust the pricing thereafter. Go consult a lawyer.

May 6, 2009 at 4:09 PMUnknown

dear cheang :

as long as the developer haven't signed the S&P, they can correct it. like if u go into sundry shop and the label say RM5.00 for the items u want to buy, and when u pay, the cashier say RM6.00. they are the seller. they have the right to change price. but after they give u the receipt RM5.00. they have no right to ask the money back. in this case, do u have the 10% deposit receipt issued ? if yes, u win the case.

May 6, 2009 at 11:45 PMkp

This project looks great, but 2 lifts for each block of 36 stories?? Imagine every morning when u rush to work you need to spend some time waiting for lifts.

Cheang, I heard the same stories too.

May 8, 2009 at 12:45 AMUnknown

there are only 2 units of condo in one level, meaning 1 lift door is dedicated to 1 unit per level. How many more lifts can be allocated some more??

May 8, 2009 at 10:25 AMSoon

No,I'm not a buyer of the CP condo. I read these blogs to learn more about the Penang property market and its players. I have a couple of comments -
to expat2008 - You sound like a right royal pompous ar******. Obviously this blog is too low brow for your taste. The commentators here have a platform to voice their opinions -positive or negative- their concerns, frustrations, joy, anger, whatever ( including the developer and its staff) Take it or leave it.
to Jun Hao - You're putting the fear of your "God" into all of us. haha Try sticking to things property ok?

Refer to Cheang Issue,

Since i am the bystander of this issue, i shall say one thing that THE DEVELOPER HAS SOLE RIGHT to adjust the price before the signing of the SPA.

Furthermore, it is clear for the fact that AGREEMENT take place upon signing of the SPA. I also know that the developer did mention that the 10% downpayment of the Selling Price of the said property must be PAID, as a CONSIDERATION of the DEAL. HOWEVER, it is not a valid & binding transaction YET, but after the signing of SPA.

As i knew, the developer is desperate for asking for the 10% of the purchase of the SAID PROPERTY.

You cannot blame the developer of the issue since there is a loophole in between. I presumed that the SALESPERSON should TOLD YOU THAT a 10% of DOWNPAYMENT is crucial of RESERVING THE UNIT.

I understand that you are taking reasonable step before signing an agreement but there is an REMINDER in between. AS the SALESPERSON would defenately asking for the 10% of downpayment that works as BOOKING FEE.

I would say YOU do aware of the matter(10% as booking fee), but you might be weight it too lightly.

IF were discussed this issue in the legal sense, there are area of uncertainty should be cleared before anyone could conclude who should bear the fault.

1st. Did the purchaser aware of the matter of paying 10% downpayment of selling price as the booking fee for the said property?

2nd. If the Purchaser knew but fail to comply?(IE:failure to issue the 10% downpayment)

3rd. Did the SALESPERSON did what she/he should be done by ensuring the PURCHASER aware of the important of the 10% booking fee?

4th. If the purchaser is aware that he need to pay the 10% downpayment that worked as a booking fee of the said property, but he fail to execute as paying the 10%, then the SAID developer is NOT BREACHING the oral agreement(contract) as increasing the price of the said property.

5th. When the purchaser aware of the need of paying the downpayment, did he take reasonable step to ensure that even without making payment of 10%, the said property is still reserved for the purchaser by the developer.(IE:extra BLACK + WHITE AGREEMENT)

If the owner is unwilling to pay the downpayment before signing the SPA, did try to negotiate with the developer for alternative solution.(IE:issued a post-dated cheque) = by doing this, the owner has everyright to void the cheque if he is quit for the deal.....

Don't try to judge on matters that there is some uncertainty area...

May 9, 2009 at 10:38 PMUnknown

Gosh...sad to hear this happen on Cheang for this project...

How do i go about in getting the low medium apartment ?

From the Goh family(CL Goh & CA Goh) history since 90's, I had seen a lot of their projects eg. BJ court, N-park, Midlands condo, BJ complex, Midlands one stop, Prangin Mall, Mega Mall Perai etc. Which project is not "hot" during launching? People even queued up at their office to grab one! However, which project is maintained in good condition until now and which project doesn't create "eye sore" to the surrounding environment? In my opinion, these guys are typical businessman, they don't bother about environment, customer satisfaction or even reputation. Their strategy is very simple--hit & run by "cheap sale" concept. Once successful, they'll dissapear for couple of years, then return with new projects. In short, if you wish to buy their property, you grab you release. Not advisable to hold for more than 5years........or for your own stay.

I'm interested in securing a unit of LMC unit for my self-accommodation. Sry for these questions but i hope somebody could provide handful information. Thanks in advance.

1)Approximately when will they start selling the LMC apartment?
2)Has anybody secured these LMC units?
3)Around when the project will be completed?

July 20, 2009 at 12:44 AMthe thinker

I heard about CP. Not the compliments but rather more about criticism. Earlier I felt like wasting time to write on this blog but I took a few mins to highlight this.

I was told by my Penang friend that when he went to the sales office to enquire this project, he was rudely brushed away. The sales girl was impatience to entertain each of his question and showed signs of being annoyed when more questions were thrown to her. In fact, just found out another friend of mine had the same problem.

In another occassion, my friend's friend called Goh who is a S'pore PR drove his S'pore car to the sales office. Attention was quickly poured to this foreigner. One of the sales staff quickly shouted 'Here comes the Singaporean'. They were not aware that Goh a S'pore PR was born in Penang and Goh was firstly wondering why they shouted like that. Anyway Goh was offered a unit ASAP but bought at above $700K. [To Cheang: I guess that was why you were forced to take $722K because your unit could be sold to a more potential buyer].

So,what do you all think? If Penang buyers are treated like a 3rd class nationality, then why will you die to own it? I really symphatize with the way how we are treated like the 3rd class nationality by our own people. Too sad!

July 24, 2009 at 7:06 PMLaBBiT

wat happen to this project? suspended for quite a while...almost 1 month liao

July 28, 2009 at 5:01 PMAnonymous

what do you mean by suspended? the developer stop its construction progress? how do you know anyway

July 30, 2009 at 2:42 PMsorento

My understanding is the surrounded residents complained about the project was working over time and a politician over that area insisted the authority(MPPP) to stop work for 2 mths. Feel that suspension for such a long period for such reason is not wise unless any hidden agenda . Wasting time n money.

August 2, 2009 at 2:26 PMAnonymous

I heard about that too. So it is true afterall that they are working overtime and got suspended. Looking from the other side, isn't a good thing that the developer is rushing to complete the project within 2 years time?

August 31, 2009 at 10:18 PMSteven

Come on guys, do you think the MPPP would issue stop order just becoz of complains from residents? When did this happens in Penang before? MPPP would normally issue a warning and limit the construction time. Go check with MPPP to find out the real story.

October 14, 2009 at 12:36 AMspicysun

The building is now progressing pretty nicely with about 5 storey being build now. Looking forward to completion. Good luck guys

January 4, 2010 at 11:09 AMnoble

heard that level 16 up, block A now available from 680k onwards +5k every floor, since i missed getting a unit previously, should i get one now ?? ..(thinking out loud)

has anyone done a comparison to delima palace? also 2600 sq ft - heard subsale at 760k to 800k.....

January 4, 2010 at 11:23 AMclux

Level 16 and above for tower A.
It is duplex unit?

January 4, 2010 at 11:47 AMnoble

no more duplex units - all normal units...

January 6, 2010 at 3:51 PMclux

680k at level 16.
about RM260 psf.
I think it is still a good buy either for own stay or investment.

February 20, 2010 at 4:50 PMvt

Why,Last two day add from Kwang Hwa the developer still selling at RM 235pfs ???

February 21, 2010 at 2:32 PMclux

They have increased the price from minimum of 530K to 650K.
If u calculate base on psf, this project is still very cheap.

March 19, 2010 at 11:34 AMstevenTeoh

addition of car park costs 18k-20k. is it worth??

March 22, 2010 at 5:05 PMloo

PDC low cost car park near Bukit Jambul TMN Lip Sin also ask for RM15K , I visited PISA last Sunday checked the low cost flat 680SF (3rooms) RM42.5K and the car pack asking for RM15K , so Central Park extra only 3~5K is resonable compare low cost flat . Now only provided 2 car park for 4rooms Condo , after kids grow we need more car park for safety issue , if 3rd car park outside during night time so ....

March 25, 2010 at 3:50 PMclux

Hi Loo,

Very high (>30), High (20-29), mid (10-19), or low(<10).

March 26, 2010 at 11:35 AMclux

Is that level 5?
Then it will be too low, no view at all.

March 26, 2010 at 11:55 AMPenang Lover

There is a room for water pump somewhere 10+ floor. Do take note of this

water pump room is on level 17

March 26, 2010 at 6:07 PMHelloHello

For a good view at Central Park.
It will have to be level 22 and above.

April 14, 2010 at 10:43 AMclux

Hi, anyone know what is the ceiling height for each unit?
From the construction site, each unit looks not tall enough.

April 25, 2010 at 4:56 PMciernteoh

RM30-40k is ridiculous. This is Penang, not Hong Kong.

April 27, 2010 at 4:43 PMvt

Celtral Park reserved 40 lot for visiter car park.

April 30, 2010 at 8:47 PMUnknown

Dear all,
I believe that Central Park is THE BEST development on Penang island. It is within walking distance of the Batu Lanchang foodcourt, wet market, shopping complex and seafood restaurants. With all these conveniences, it is worth buying and the price will appreciate!
Best rgds.

May 3, 2010 at 10:18 AMnoble

dunno if it's the best as you claimed but demand was good and the allotted additional car parks of 130 for sale has about 20 remaining after a week

May 4, 2010 at 9:02 AMloo

They are selling the bad location car park in begining time , so like during the project launched , later the good location partially they continue sale , this is their stye of selling , some one said playing psyohology, so you can select now , after a month you go and check the nice location is out , like now if you want the new unit still available , the price is follow current new price add about RM150K and above.

May 4, 2010 at 3:54 PMnoble

ic.. thx loo fr the heads up

May 4, 2010 at 10:43 PMLeprechaungal

hi all
what i s the current price for the normal unit(not the duplex)..am not too crazy on the view ..therefore..am willing to compromise..any idea on the maintenance price as well.

May 5, 2010 at 1:53 PMstefan

Hi Leprechaungal,

The price has appreciated to RM702K for a Standard unit at 19th floor. Every level higher, you just add another RM5K. I don't think there are anymore units available.

Based on the hot demand, I think the price will increase another 200K, when O.C. is obtained.

The maintenance fee is RM185/mth, which includes sinking fund.


May 6, 2010 at 2:35 PMstefan

hi loo,
even at 716K, it is still cheap per sqft wise, at RM273/sqft.
a quick comparison with other projects around the area:
(1) Platino - 1.2M for 2600sqft = RM462/sqft.
(2) Bayswater - 600K for 1300sqft = RM462/sqft.
(3) The View - 750K for 2000sqft = RM375/sqft.
(4) Delima Palace - 800K for 2600sqft = RM308/sqft.
based on the RM/sqft above, i think CP price will increase after OC.

May 21, 2010 at 1:29 PMironman

On 17th and 18th floor still available (BUMI lot) RM680 above

May 21, 2010 at 1:37 PMvt

Hi See Pek, how come you just paid RM2K. My side Ms.Por ask for RM5K because she said my side a bit difficult to get the unit so need to pay more. How come ?? Somemore I paid already but until now still get nothing...??? Still need to wait for how long ??

July 21, 2010 at 10:40 PMUnknown

July 21, 2010 at 11:40 PMUnknown

hi khor and veronica, it's very common that sales person gets greedy and collected some extra income for themselves. by the way, she dont entertain thru phones. go directly to office look for Ms. Por. pay her ouside the monoland office. be wise, my friend. i dont know why you paid RM5K. she told me max is RM2K. maybe getting more greedy or got partner also ma. bring cash along and push to her then walk away like what i did. at last she took it.

July 21, 2010 at 11:46 PMUnknown

how much is the low medium cost per unit?

July 21, 2010 at 11:57 PMUnknown

paying undercounter doesnt mean you get your unit now. but will surely get it when finalise and with nice car park lot if provided. thats what she convinced me.

July 22, 2010 at 9:17 PMUnknown

so unbelievable. their greediness have affected those who really poor and need a shelter. these under counter money must be stop and reported to MPPP council. Imagine if there are 200 units and collected RM2K or RM5K from each individual unit, total collected is between RM400K to RM1mil. half of that amount also Ho seh liao! taking advantages from the poor ppl. damm!

July 22, 2010 at 9:28 PMUnknown

don't know whether the whole sales team associates are involved or not including their MANAGER. Probably was instructed to do so.

July 22, 2010 at 11:58 PMUnknown

Hi See Pek, your side collected RM2K and my side collected RM5K... may be you are right, Ms.Por getting more greedy or got partner get involve also. But any how she already collected the money. No matter how I want my unit, if she can't make it for me.. Huh !! I want her "Boh Bin" in this company !! Somemore I will reported to MPPP council !!!

wah...built like a cell. Ugly condo in Penang.

September 18, 2010 at 10:27 AMloo

Gong , Can't buy it don't jealous it , the price up 40% compare original till now.

September 18, 2010 at 9:52 PMstefan

yaa...gong, u r so jealous! if u have nothing good to say, pls keep to yourself.

September 18, 2010 at 9:59 PMProperty talk

Built ugly like a cell is not that bad but the material use and the quality of work is a big concern. Also, check out why one of the blocks is building slower than the others. What about the surrounding? The biggest concern of all if you look at history about the past condominiums by this developer, it is not well managed. Sprint well in the beginning but no stamina to main long journey.

If 40% appreciation and if there is a big water fish, don't think twice. Sell now!

September 20, 2010 at 1:49 PMgong

I'm not jealous it. Its real true what. The condo design bekii. Delima Palace condo is better than it.
This time I am agree with Property talk comment.

September 20, 2010 at 4:27 PMnoble

property talk - your comment that one of the block is slower is a speculative assumption or based on facts? buyers would know that the block was initially earmarked for duplex for L16 onwards but could not get an approval. upon reaching L15, they had to stop work pending the application which was still eventually rejected.. so, it was back to the usual units from L16 onwards and construction continued which resulted in the catch-up at Block A

September 20, 2010 at 4:50 PMUnknown

Some people know nothing talk something , know something talk many things , the kind of people they are 'red eyes' when saw people house price keep on increasing ... that why 'jealous' word come from .

September 21, 2010 at 2:48 PMProperty talk

Noble, I can't answer you as it is a little sensitive but I can see that you are taking comments constructively here. You may wish to find into more details.

tan, I am not jealous but just having a constructive discussion here. There are always pros and cons about a development and since the pros have been shared, why not some cons as well. Red eye or jealous is not in my perspective.

If all of you just love to hear good things, I will share the good things about Central Park. Even bad things can be turned into good things.

September 27, 2010 at 9:57 AMloo

gong is Delima Palace owner , he/she try to push out his/her unit , worry Central Park took he/she buyer .... name is gong tua tai

October 11, 2010 at 2:32 PMBlock B Buyer

when is the low cost unit is available for sell? I am still waiting for the registration. If anyone of you working with the developer, can you please kindly inform us the latest?


October 21, 2010 at 11:56 AMBlock B Buyer

Hi Gemini,

What? No masterplan or layout, how can they fix the price of apartment? I just wonder why those 1 thousand guys register to buy the apartment even they dont know the details of laytout and masterplan....so curious....

do you have the layout? do you mind to scan and show me?

Actually the location and price is quite reasonable. but i still have to consider the masterplan first.


October 21, 2010 at 11:18 PMYeoh

wah, 1000+ people register liao? heard that total only 200 units and now left only 180 units. the chances very slim :-(

October 25, 2010 at 11:49 AMBlock B Buyer

Hey Gemini,

Finally i got the layout of LMC. I still curious about their design. The layout of the house is totally wrong. I believe the layout has no yet fix. That's the reason I found a lot of incomplete drawing. So dissapointed.

If anyone of you has the final layout, please kindly let me know.


October 25, 2010 at 11:55 AMCEJ

Hi Brian,
May I know where did u get the LMC layout?

October 25, 2010 at 1:25 PMBlock B Buyer


I got the layout from one of my friends who works in this corporate. But I found that layout has many mistake parts. I think the layout they gave me is not finalized yet.

By the way, Gemini, can you please kindly let me know the name of the project completed by BSG Group for the bukit Gambier LMC? I search their website but i cant find any related information.


October 27, 2010 at 3:15 PMBlock B Buyer

Hi Gemini,

I went to the BSG website, But i can not find any related information about the Low Medium Cost apartment. I would like to know the details location and size of the apartment unit first before we decided to buy any unit.

I heard from a lot of developers advise not to buy any properties in Bukit Gambier since there are a lot of LMC apartments located there. They predict in the next 2~3 years, the traffic jam will become serious over there.

If anyone has the BSG low medium cost apartment details, please kindly let me know.

With this kind of price for Paya Terubong area, might as well go for The Waterfront at Tg Bungah area. RM750K-RM900K. The size is bigger as well at 2900 sft. With a density of 68 units.

Less traffic jams and better environment to live in.

January 11, 2011 at 9:34 AMputericekak

may i know what is the price for low cost medium cost?

March 6, 2011 at 8:17 AMUnknown

Attention all buyers of Central Park. Developer has started charging interest for the loan taken. The agreement mention interest will only starts after receiving Vacant Possession (VP). I haven't receive my VP yet and deemed this as a violation to the agreement. Please check your mailbox and if you come across the same charges as i did, i think we need to stand together and fight for our rights. UNITED WE STAND.

March 6, 2011 at 2:43 PMstevenTeoh

John: i also kena this month interest.all AmBank borrower didnt know got hide cross in the loan agreement(Offering Letter).in item (iii)first tier rate 0.00% to be effective frm the date of first disbursement for 18 months OR up to 80%of the payment schedule in schedule H of SPA (physical completion of the building with the sewerage works,drain and road servicing the building),whichever is earlier.thereafter second tier rate shall commence..dont know MayBank got this.............

I heard, this afternoon people started to queue for the ARENA condo which gonna launch tomorrow near PISA Bayan Lepas for rm360/sft which is still not yet pilling. If I really want to own a home, I would have queue for Central Park Batu Lancang. Location wise for me is more strategic n the cheapest in Penang Island selling for RM300/sft only to be completed june 2011 at the moment. Sub-sales at rm750k 2600/sft. Unbelieveable!

March 8, 2011 at 3:39 AMshingo

daren - they r two diff type of condo, everyone hopes to own a bigger house but it is very much depends on purchase power.

Hey Guys, my Maybank loan agreement is

0% p.a. on daily rest for the 1st 18months from the date of 1st loan drawdown or up to stage of Practical Completion, whichever is earlier.

And thereafter
BLR -2% p.a on daily rest until full settlement of loan.

and my first drawdown debt was on May,2009, which at the end of 18months would be Novemeber, 2010. My interest payment was started on the December, 2010 which is in accordance with the loan agreement.

I am not sure about Ambanks.

March 9, 2011 at 12:14 PMstevenTeoh

hi enges, after 18months the VP din process u should claim the interest from developer ,developer will bear interest until VP.....

March 10, 2011 at 3:46 PMcooldown

Thanks Steven for the clarification. we should go after the developer

March 11, 2011 at 7:31 PMTim

Welcome to join the glut.

March 13, 2011 at 2:48 PMAprilFOOL

anybody know about low medium cost cental pak there... i want to buy a unit.

March 15, 2011 at 3:19 PMloo

Dear all ,
FYI low medium cost unit will not open sale , due to Gov not allow to developer sale with high price over RM175K , so developer will look for other place and bulid low cost flat or LMC replace for Gov require .
So please wait for the LMC unit open sale after completed , but the price will over RM200K , due to material use in current LMC beside block E is good one according to my relative work in there unit he mentioned.
Share with all direct seller , don't sale too soon , the price of Central Park will continue up till get OC , you have to view the completed view will know the great facility like 5 star hotel. Platino over price almost RM480~520/sf.
Central Park will up RM320~350/Sf.

March 16, 2011 at 11:57 PMAprilFOOL

I really very worried because they all said LMC apartment will sale by gov...HOW? because if the gov. sell he will give to the person which they choose...i really want to buy house LMC??

April 27, 2011 at 12:47 PMkucing

Amongst all this 2600sf plus condominium at almost the same location, which is the best and value for money ? :-

1. central park (high density & lousy developer)
2. delima palace (low density & so-so developer)
3. platino (high density but good developer)

April 27, 2011 at 5:12 PMkucing

I heard that the LMC apartment will shall the same entrance, car park, facilities with the 5 storey super condo, is that true ?

That will be very congested !!

April 27, 2011 at 9:14 PMPenang Lover

Kucing, how you derive density? What is the figure for this 3 places you mentioned

April 28, 2011 at 11:25 AMkucing

Penang lover,

What my main concern is, if those LMC share the same entrance, facilities etc... those living in the 2600 sq ft might not have a decent life.
As I notice, those Penang LMC if not managed properly, always been rented out to foreign workers or china dolls or even vietnamese/thailand dolls (due to the low rental rate)
Imagine if you are residents there, do you wish to share facilities, i.e. swimming pool with them ? or do you feel secured with their presence in your neighbourhood ? Presence of china dolls a good environment for your kids etc ?

April 28, 2011 at 12:04 PMThink again!

There is no sharing of anything btw LMC and Central park FYI. The fence are already completed.

LMC carpark are attached to the Indoor games room of C.Park but not inter connected.

No owner will stay in C.Park if Sharing facilities

April 28, 2011 at 12:28 PMkucing

Penang lover,

Sorry I just realised you asked me about those 3 "mini-super-condo" I listed earlier. I thought you asked about Central park facilities.

Anyway, i ve been looking for those 3 condos to buy at the moment and have done some "research", viewing, and questioning.
Let me share with you :-

1. central park = 300 over units and I don't know whether the LMC flats will share the same facilities ? (other wise could go up to 400 plus !)
2. Delima palace = 100 over units
3. Platino = 200 over units

road access & location wise:-
1.central park = could be tough to get into jalan masjid negeri (only one small road leading there) or another congested road to jalan Perak ! next to a wet market, can be noisy / smelly ! Walking distance to shopping / eating at The Gallery, market
2. delima palace = also tough to get into jalan masjid (only jalan delima leading there) or another road to jalan yeap chor yee. A very quiet place, far away from congested area, located next to a small hill. No walking distance to do shopping / eating etc
3. platino = easy access to jelutong high way, next to tesco, E-gate, good for shopping & good food eating.

Unit Quality wise :-
1. Central park - good, but watch up for hidden defect few months later (due to this developer's reputation and fast-building process )
2. Delima palace - generally ok, no comment as don't know this low profile developer well
3. platino - very good, high tech stuff, trusted developer

facilities rating :-
1. central park :- very good (provided nothing missing or defects, just ask the owners of The Cove & Gurney Beach Resorts, they will tell you more) :0
2. delima palace :- basic, very small swimming pool, not much facilities
3. Platino :- Excellent ! That's what we can call 5 star hotel facilities
(that explained Platino is the most expensive (per sq ft wise) amongst the 3)

Of course everything has its pros and cons, all depends on what do you want !

April 28, 2011 at 10:44 PMAprilFOOL

hi.. vt

Any LMC internal photo? please upload some photo... look not bad also from the building...

April 29, 2011 at 6:39 PMkucing

Hope those potential buyers who have viewed the condo could tell us your honest comments / feeling about it !

Maybe you have seen the things (good or bad) I 've missed !


Thank you !

April 29, 2011 at 6:42 PMkucing


Thanks for your info !

Anything else good about central park you want to share ?

I am a potential buyer who would like to know more !

April 29, 2011 at 7:04 PMLittleOne

I went inside to see personally. The unit, facilities and the outlay is surprisingly very good. Initially considering selling the unit. Now I want to keep it. Even the contractor I've spoken to said it was a good buy at the launch price. He being a Jelutong resident said that the location is very strategic and amenities are all just around the corner. Paying at a cheaper price you should expect some renovations from your side. It is a trade-off that one should be realistic about. Also confirmed that LMC is NOT sharing the facilities with CP. Also CP has ample parking inside that there is no need to park outside.

As for the LMC, it doesn't look LMC at all! It is more like a Upper Medium Cost Condo. They also have an indoor badminton court. Maybe the trade off is only one car park. In the initial blue print, the is a swimming pool but due to the price restriction imposed on the 'LMC', they dropped that facility.

April 29, 2011 at 8:21 PMHelloHello

LittleOne, are they allowing people to enter to view CP? Who should I appraoch to enter? Security guard? Very keen to check out the quality built.

like you, I wanted to sell my unit previously but now strongly reconsidering it.
Kucing, maybe we could go in and check it out since u r a potential buyer

May 1, 2011 at 1:45 AMUnknown

May I know how much is the monthly maintenance? Thanks.

May 1, 2011 at 3:15 AMPenang Lover

Thanks for the details research, I agreed with you that the developer has a bad reputation but in term of cost it is one of the cheapest you can get in Penang Island. So looking at the price/sq ft and quality there always been a trade-off, it depends what you want. I believe many buyers noticed about this and what is their expectation.
In term of density, it has about 30 dwelling units per acre and this meet the maximum permissible population density. Not many developer could meet this criteria, refer this the link below .

May 1, 2011 at 7:31 AMmax

Why not just buy a landed at this price to enjoy the conveniences and future price appreciation?

May 1, 2011 at 11:17 AMHelloHello

PenangLover, as part of the expectation and norm of penang condo nowadays. High Density is never an issue for those investor prone higher end projects.

The occupancy rate usually cannot reach 50% for the first 5years and 80% in 10yrs.

As an owner who plan to move in, high density never cross my mind. in addition, higher units will come to lower maintainence fees for this full facilities condo.

May 2, 2011 at 7:43 PMvt

Sorry i don't hv the LMC photo,only manage to take photo from CP, my suggestion to owner is wait for the OC then only decide yr selling price.

May 3, 2011 at 3:50 PMkucing

Over the weekend I just went over there and took a look from their main entrance (their gate not ready yet)

It seems like those 5 blocks are so close to each other (only few feet away) and seems like those sitting in balcony can see very cleary through the windows (if not cover) of those adjacent blocks (and vice versa) !!

That is a weak design or layout of the 5 blocks ! Less privacy in Balcony or you need to close your window all the time ! (as most of the adjacent block units can see you !) ? ?

That is only my first impression (hope I can really go in and take an actual look when OC issued !)

Any feed back from those really went in and viewed the units ?

May 4, 2011 at 9:35 PMProperties

MAX> landed? where landed can get this price? total area 2600sqf in single floor.

Rain> what i know is the Maintenance fee is MYR 180, but the actual price maybe you need wait until get OC or VP.

VT> how you go in and take the pic from CP. can advise. thansk a lot...

May 6, 2011 at 5:06 PMkucing

I have a feeling due to the over-supply of this property (300 over units), the price might drop when many speculators rushing to dump later !!
Reasons :- obstructed view, close proximity with nearby block units , defective works here and there !

Many Platino investors already feeling the pinch !! There are over 30 units offering for sale but no takers for half a year already !!
As their sky-high offerring price of 800k to 1.2 mils are very hard to fetch buyers nowadays !

News for LMC they are selling RM120K and above , but now the materials was cut , floor only cement , 2 toilet only 1 with complete tile anlther one northing , 1st priority for that place resident buyer , after own worker relative...etc, if you lucky you might get one.

July 17, 2011 at 8:50 PMstefan

cannot get at 650K anymore. prices now are around 750K to 850K depending on which floor. after OC, the price will go up by another 100K. so if you can get at 750K, you should buy it, and not wait anymore.

July 18, 2011 at 1:12 PMDNA

Any update about the LMC Project? Interested buyer. let me know if anyone know about it.


July 20, 2011 at 1:30 AMKeya

Thx Stefan for ur input
A couple of sellers offered me at 680K which is reasonable n we r yet neg...I know a couple whom need to do a bank transfer is offering at 650K as well..so 750 K is still high but a good price if its above 20th floor..

market is turning its head towards buyers market rather than sellers market as it was couple yrs ago..seen this in US all the time too

Good luck to all homestays purchases..

About year-end

August 5, 2011 at 10:54 PMAnonymous

Allow me to share my little 2cents sense. CA Goh truly has very very bad records. all their projects had ill defects dont believe look at KBJ, Prangin Mall, Megamall, 1stop, N & E Park and the list can go on. All external walls cracked and many units had defects as well. And many common areas are claimed as their ownership such car parks, lobby areas etc. Till today many owners of these projects have endless legal entanglement with this developer. And who's rushing to the bank? the lawyer of course with millions $ incurred. I would think twice buying CP units. Of course people forgets easily just like E&O prices sky rocketed (the tsunami tragedy hit yrs back). Contractors/engineers shared that Goh will pressure and rush the job to be done at unreasonable pace which do not meet the normal requirements that would make the building material lasting and strong. And anything can happen just like Cheang's case. I have avoided Goh family project for good. Dont believe? Your choice....Good luck

August 19, 2011 at 1:07 PMjohn

Hi to all

I'm interested in this condo.Level between 12th to 20th floor.Price also reasonable.You can reach me at this blog.Thanks

September 7, 2011 at 12:08 AMBoyzTwenty2

I cant believe still got so many ppl keen to buy Central Park Condo.. Do you all guys really do research before buy? If you dont believe, kindly go survey around that area and ask those ppl living there. The land got problem. imbalance... im not liar.. u can go ask before comment about my statement :)

September 7, 2011 at 5:09 AMeric

Well...its simple..it could be those interested buyers are actually the owner intended to goreng the price by creating false impression of high demand.

September 7, 2011 at 5:58 AMteo

Stay tuned. The analysts are believing Bank Negara is going to put up something not in favor to speculator very soon.

September 7, 2011 at 8:13 AMjeremy tan

yea i heard that Bank Negara will reduce the amount of leverage that one can borrow from the bank by 37% based on their net income instead of their gross income. This will affect those owning more than 2 properties.

Apparently a raise in RGPT is just not good enough. Lesser profits does not curb speculation. However, lesser leverage does get the job done.

September 7, 2011 at 10:21 AMcondomana

Let's hope any measures implemented would target/affect specifically the speculators, but not genuine first home buyers or upgraders. By reducing borrowable amount across the board will affect genuine home buyers too (bad idea).

Bear in mind, property ownership should be encouraged and it is one of the soundest life long investment for a family (especially in a young and up coming country like M'sia). However, "over-ownership" is a waist of resources (when units are left empty, liquidity gets stuck in unproductive asset, artificially inflated property price..) and therefore is the problem that authorities should target to stop.

September 7, 2011 at 5:35 PMstevenTeoh

Looks like completed d. hopefully they can hand over keys this month, then we all have about 2,3 months to get some renovate and then open house on X'mas or New Year.....then it will be Perfect.....

September 7, 2011 at 10:18 PMAnonymous

Agreed, there are ppl pretending as buyers to create the impression of good demand, one of them should be the owner who buoght 36 units in CP. 36 units, it is true, informed by staff working at CP.

September 16, 2011 at 12:09 AMRoman

heard that this project failed to obtain OC because didn't follow government's rule (building higher than expected). Not sure whether it is true.

September 23, 2011 at 12:53 PMohin

now,from bad to worst...lmc issue and now building height issue..don't know CA goh still have any trick or problem on car park or anything..so worry me..regret buy it..

September 24, 2011 at 11:11 AMThink again!

wat a hypocrite!!!! you ask owner to run yet sell to you at cost price?

September 25, 2011 at 3:54 AMLittleOne

ohin, interested to sell your high risk investment to me at cost price?

October 4, 2011 at 9:32 AMTeoh

Any one know when can obtain the OC? Hope CA Goh will release soon in order for the owner do the renovation and move in before CNY.

October 8, 2011 at 9:56 PMEvon W

I wanted to move in urgently and had been calling the sales person to find out the latest on the OC issues. It is true that they did build higher than they are allowed to build. However I was told that they did for the past one year written to council if they are allowed to build and council did not reply. Thinking that they could, they actually build an additional level not for occupancy but for penthouse's roof double protection. That area is not supposed to be used by anyone but serves as protection. Now that it's all done, the council asked them to tear it down. Now as you drive pass greenlane, you could see them tearing it down and now they are targeting for OC approval next month. According to CA Goh, this would be final for council to approv and I just hope that they dont' make things difficult for the developers. For those of you who wants OC asap, once we receive the VP from the developers, the council have the right to issue the OC to us from 2 weeks to 3 months (if I am not wrong) so we have to go to council at Komtar to start pressuring them for the OC. Just quote "Taman Sentral" and they will check and reply you. I think CA Goh is very pressured as well to get this done for us. I know because when I spoke to the staff, I could sense that they are stress as well because a lot of people has been calling them to check on daily basis except weekends. I still believe this project is a good buy and don't lose heart!! Good luck!

October 10, 2011 at 3:51 PMgemini


Thanks for the info, hope we can get the OC next month. Renovate & move in b4 Chinese New Year. No regret of buying it.
