GEORGE TOWN: Eastern & Oriental Bhd (E&O) will release for registration the second tower of its RM900mil Tamarind project this weekend at its show gallery in Seri Tanjung Pinang, Tanjung Tokong.
E&O marketing and sales general manager (Penang) Christina Lau said the first tower block had registered a 90% take-up rate since its soft launch in February, prompting E&O to open the second block for registration on June 20 and 21.
The Tamarind project will also be officially launched this weekend.
“More than 400 people have registered with us to take up the first block,” said Lau.
“The successful sale of the first block is due to the distinctive E&O brand and the Tamarind’s attractive pricing.
“Selling from RM600,000 per three-bedroom unit of 1,047 sq ft, the Tamarind is definitely a good entry price for young professionals or new homeowners to own an aspirational property by E&O.
“The Tamarind showcases unique facilities to cater to the lifestyle of its residents including a private one-acre waterscape of beach and free-form swimming and wading pools for the family to enjoy,” added Lau.
She said the Tamarind was one of the most sought after address in Penang as it had easy access in Seri Tanjung Pinang to the Straits Quay retail marina, Tesco hypermarket, Straits Quay Convention Centre, Straits Green Public Park, Penang Performing Arts Centre and the 1.6 km seafront promenade.
Located on 6.9 acres, the Tamarind features two blocks of 33 storeys, comprising 1,104 units with three-bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Lau said E&O had also partnered a renowned home furnishing specialist to collaborate on the interior design of its show unit.
“Ikea provides all the furnishings of the show unit. This is the first time a Malaysian developer has worked with IKEA to set up the show units for a project,” she said.
