    This project should be targeting SPRs due to its proximity to the 2nd Link and senior civil servants working in the nearby Kota Iskandar offices.
    But the site is still an old plantation waiting to be cleared and levelled and the scheduled completion date is 2021, at least 5 to 6 years later if no delay (but expect the usual delay).
    Construction of terrace houses usually takes only about 18 months, I guess the long time frame is due to land clearance, planning and construction of essential amenities like roads system, sewerage, electric supply etc. which normally takes forever to complete.
    But 5, 6 years is a very long time to wait.

    Don't know where you got your info, the completion date was stated as 2021 in this website while the developer's website provide no information. http://www.propertyguru.com.sg/overseas-property-for-sale/melia-residences-1609782
    While the completion date and the prices you quoted were all different, the only item in common is the total no. of unit for sale @ 625 units.
    Anyway, the completion year in 2019 is quite impossible given the current site condition and the way the system works here.

    Different phases, different completion dates. Delays are common. VP in end 2019 is possible.

    If you are a buyer and you actually believe that the completion date can be within 2019, I admire your optimism but pity your predicament coming end 2019.
    By end 2019, probably they have just cleared the plantation and built the roads and possible that the electrical, water and sewerage mains, with some luck, will be almost in position.

    I'm not a buyer, but sharing what I thought is a development at fairly good location with resort concept and reasonable price. Landed development in JB typically takes 2-3 years from bare land to VP. 3.5 years is doable if sufficient resources are allocated to the development. The developer is UEM Sunrise, which is quite a reliable developer with projects in Singapore also.

    Why is there such a big range in prices? Do you know the sizes of the units?

    For the same type of unit, the price can range from RM552,888 to RM1,536,888 - 3 times more???
    The price difference for a same unit type can only be due to unit location, orientation, bumi incentive and for terrace there's no floor height incremental difference.
    But 3 times , this must be the craziest, widest and the most ridiculous price range I've ever come across and whoever publish it better come up with a good reason.
    And you happily post it without any doubts.

    Yes, in KL.
    Nowadays in KL, a 24 year old 22' x 75' terrace house cost about RM900,000 in Subang Jaya.
    Most new ones cost over RM1m for the same size and it is on the fringes only. KL no more land.
