THE cost of living and property prices in Ipoh are considerably lower than other cities, making it an ideal place for vacation and retirement, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir.
In highlighting the city’s many attractions, he said the state government would continue to promote the city along this line.
“Ipoh is ready to welcome eco-tourists and high-end residents from all over the world,” he said.
Dr Zambry said the people would be able to enjoy an idyllic lifestyle in a city, minus the stress and hustle and bustle of big cities.
He added that there was minimal traffic congestion and excellent infrastructure and amenities in Ipoh.
“Where else can you find these qualities in a city set amongst beautiful natural surroundings?
“These have become the very element that are now viewed as premium among property investors,” he said at the topping out ceremony of Haven Lakeside Residences in Tambun, Ipoh last Saturday.
The Mentri Besar has nothing but praise for the developer, Haven Sdn Bhd, and its project — a high-end development of three 26-storey towers with units priced between RM600,000 and RM3.8mil per unit.
According to Dr Zambry, the ceremony held at the project site was a historical occassion for Ipoh.
“The ceremony goes to show Ipoh is undergoing rapid transformation and this would surprise many in the nation,” he said.
Dr Zambry said Ipoh has the potential to be an ideal resort town.
His idea of a resort town in Ipoh was shared by Haven Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Peter Chan in his speech at the ceremony.
Chan said his award-winning project, which offered the best of both worlds — natural surroundings and the necessities of life — would be completed by mid 2013.
