    Solid sales at new residential launch in Iskandar's Danga Bay

    Published on Oct 14, 2014 1:13 AM

    By Rennie Whang


    A NEW residential launch in Danga Bay has brought some cheer to the lacklustre Iskandar property market.

    Aquaint Danga Residensi (ADR) sold nearly 80 per cent of the 358 units in two tower blocks during its launch at the weekend, a spokesman for the developer said yesterday.

    The project comprises four high-rise towers on 1.6ha of a prime waterfront site. It is being developed by Para Impiana, a joint venture between Rapai Fokus - a wholly-owned subsidiary of Iskandar Waterfront Holdings - and two Singapore partners, Imperial Marina and Skyfront Holdings.

    Some of the buyers are understood to be members of a property investment club, Aquaint Property, run by Imperial Marina's founder, Tan Yang Po, although their numbers could not be confirmed. Imperial Marina is itself a property investment firm.

    Selling prices ranged from RM900 (S$351) to RM1,200 per sq ft (psf), with most units ranging from 550 to 1,500 sq ft. The project also has "sky bungalows" of up to 5,000 sq ft. The prices range from RM575,000 for a 550 sq ft one-bedder to RM4.3 million for the "sky bungalows".

    The four towers will have 818 units in all, with shops as well. They are expected to be ready for occupation by late 2018.

    ADR is next to Country Garden's and Greenland Group's projects at Danga Bay. Greenland is expected to launch its project in about two weeks, with units starting from 463 sq ft and at an average price of RM800 psf.

    Country Garden has sold more than 6,000 units at an average of RM720 psf. Its units range from 400 sq ft studios to 3,000 sq ft penthouses.

    "(ADR's launch performance) shows that the local market may still be able to accept selected products in their targeted segments," said CBRE Malaysia executive director Paul Khong.

    "Hopefully, with some positive news in the local JB market, more investors and buyers will have confidence in Iskandar Malaysia," added Mr Khong.

    But PA International Property Consultants executive director V. Sivadas was less sanguine.

    "The market generally remains unchanged... (but) we do know that projects that are priced reasonably, whether strata or landed units, are able to sell well in Iskandar Malaysia. These would generally be units below RM500,000, or units within established neighbourhoods in Johor Baru, or both."

    JOHOR BARU: There's no truth to social media reports that a group of 23 children went missing at Villa Nabila, an abandoned bungalow in Danga Bay here reputed to be among the five spookiest places in the country.

    Johor Baru (South) deputy OCPD Supt Abdul Samad Salleh said Monday that police had only received a report about a 16-year-old boy missing since Saturday and purportedly seen entering the villa.

    "It is just hearsay. I urged the public not to believe in it and to stop spreading rumours," he said when met at the scene.

    Rumours have been circulating on the Internet that a group of kids playing in the abandoned house had gone missing.

    Supt Samad Salled said police have registered a missing persons report over the teenage boy.

    US-based travel portal Expedia recently listed Danga Bay as among the five most haunted places in Malaysia due to the location of Villa Nabila.

    The bungalow is perched on a hill that overlooks the Straits of Johor.

    There are several versions of how the 40-year-old building earned its reputation, including one about murder in a wealthy Caucasian family that once lived there.

    Another version tells of how the maid killed the family, including a daughter named Nabila, and buried their bodies in the compound.

    Yet another tale is that the family was killed by two hit men, hired by a relative due to greed.

    Danga Bay waterfront in Johor Bahru is part of several multi-billion ringgit development projects, but unknown to many, it listed as one the most haunted places in Malaysia.

    According to a report in The Star/Asia News Network, US-based travel portal Expedia has listed it as among the five most haunted places in Malaysia.

    It owes its reputation to an abandoned bungalow, known as Villa Nabila, on top of a hill that overlooks the Straits of Johor.

    The bungalow has held untold secrets for over 40 years and there are several versions of how it earned its status.

    They include murder that took place among a wealthy Caucasian family who once lived in the house.

    Another version tells of how the maid was behind the murder and had killed the family, including a daughter named Nabila, and buried their bodies somewhere in the compound.

    One of the most interesting stories is that the family members were killed by two hit men who were hired by a relative due to greed.

    Among the superstitions surrounding the place are that visitors should enter the house in even numbers.

    Should they visit in odd numbers, there will be an "extra" person in the group when they leave.

    With the RTS at Bukit Chagar, properties near that area should do well. There was a report saying JB readying itself for new wave of Sg buyers at zone A due to RTS effect....very convenient to stay in a condo there and take RTS to work in Sg in future...landed near RTS should do well too...

    what's next? His presence in the forum is condemning enough.
    A classic line (he was so excited with that announcement he even called it his long "TREM" PLANS ) from a 40plus self-contradictory uninspiring father of a few kids who loves rote learning.......after calling JB a "backwater shythole",
