    I hear its a China company and its expected many buyers would be PRC.I have nothing against that but personally would prefer to buy froma Malaysian or Singaporean developer and have a better mix of owners. However, am not sure if my info is correct so please don't slam me.;)
    Perhaps someone who knows more can confirm or kindly correct me.

    They are going to have an amenity there which will shock and then draw folks in. ERA from SG is doing the marketing and they are skipping all the agencies in Malaysia or so i am told from very reliable sources. ;)

    Large one acre clubhouse with bowling alley, etc isn't one of them and no i am not buying or invested in any way.

    If I remember correctly, Country Garden has about 55 acres. Would be curious how much the co could surprise out of this space.

    Any idea of the prices? I drove past Danga Bay a few days back and saw the sign up for The Capri. It would be interesting to compare the differences in prices and also what they're offering. For me personally though, I'd be more comfortabel with Dijaya as they are a 'local' company. Its unlikely i will be buying though, not now anyway due to alternative plans.

    If I want to buy something to live with hard core mainland chinese, I might as well buy one in Chengdu, Shanghai, Xiamen, Beijin etc.. Not that I am against mainland chinese, but living in a condo with 80% mainland chinese is a different kind of feeling.. Heard 80% sold to mainland chinese already..

    My such super rich old neighbour in Singapore always go toilet without closing door. I cant help not to see because their house is so near to mine. They squat on the bowl and smoke. And sometime they quarrel and shouted about money issues in the middle of the night.. and hang their colourful pieces everywhere...and they have many living in the same house like a hotel... sorry.. just joking.. not everyone are like that. I am just being unlucky.. and I have since shifted..

    :rolleyes: So what I heard was correct. I don't think Singaporeans and Malaysians will take well to living in a condo where the majority are PRC. As for other expats like Japanese and Caucasians, they are likely to give it a miss . So rental may be difficult and also resale limited, moreover I have the same feeling. I wouldn't want to live there ! I hope JB isn't going to be over run by foreigners ( excluding Singaporeans who fit in easily) like here, then what are we running to? mainland Chinese are having problems investing in China so their hot money has to find alternative destinations. With our cooling measures, Malaysia may be an option.
    An agent sent me an email saying there are still some One Danga units left. Is that also in Danga Bay? We have so many 'choices' that it gets hard to keep track!

    Read from a news.....

    A PRC company fly potential buyers by Jetload to Iskandar to purchase condos.

    If that company is not owner of Country Garden, I wonder who else can it be?
