Boom time for quiet town
PROPERTY developer DNP Land Sdn Bhd is set to transform quiet Alma town near Bukit Mertajam into a vibrant place with modern facilities.
Its senior marketing manager Joe Ang Kean Joo said the area, which used to be an oil palm estate, was fast becoming a preferred location for residential and commercial units.
“Consider owning a piece of property in Alma as it has the potential to be- come a satellite town to Bukit Mertajam,” he said.
He was speaking at the launch of a nine-day long DNP Land Property Showcase 2012 promotion at the DNP Sales Gallery in Jalan Rozhan, Alma.
Ang said DNP Land’s development projects in Alma were more focused on concept-based and landscaped-themed exclusive housing and commercial units.
He said the company’s Jesselton Hills project in Alma was a luxurious residential development spanning over 48 ha of elevated land, nestled in a guarded and greenery-shrouded environment.
“Our double-storey Lakeside Terraces units in Jesselton Heights under Phase II boasts of a spacious built-up of 2,408sq ft (216.72 sqm), which is about 30 per cent more than the regular built-up of 1,600sq ft (144 sq m).
“All 200 units have four rooms and a maid’s room apart from an utility area, wet kitchen and dry kitchen,” he said.
Ang said the guarded Lakeside Terraces units, which are within walking distance to a man-made lake, would showcase ultra- modern architecture.
