Real Estate Review: Alpine Tower, Tingkat Bukit Jambul
Alpine Tower is a single 23-storey block of condominium completed in 2003 at Tingkat Bukit Jambul. Built on leasehold land, it has 173 units ranging in size from 968 to 1474 square feet. There are two types to choose from, three bedroom units and four-bedroom units. Estimated selling price per unit range from RM230,000 to RM400,000 while monthly rental goes for between RM1000 to RM2000. Maintenance fees are upwards of RM100 per month.
Facilities include security service, parking lot, car wash bay, swimming pool, jacuzzi, gymnasium, barbeque pit, children's playground, games room, multipurpose hall, ASTRO-ready cabling, high speed Internet access, and landscaping.
Alpine Tower is 12.5 km from Magazine Circus. It is more suitable for people working in the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone area than for those working in George Town. Having said that, I have to point out the congestion along the Paya Terubong as well as Lebuh Bukit Jambul roads especially in the morning and evening rush hour.
There isn't any public transport that goes all the way to Alpine Tower. At the nearest, 301 and 306.
The main road, Jalan Paya Terubong, is pretty congested, especially during rush hour. A large amount of the traffic comes from vehicles passing through Relau from Air Itam and Paya Terubong. The flow is southbound in the morning, as workers head to Bayan Lepas for work, and in the opposite direction in the evening. This often cause much congestion at the Relau junction as well as at the junction of Persiaran Bukit Jambul with Jalan Dato Ismail Hashim.
You may also consider using Lebuh Bukit Jambul, which means a steep climb up and down the hill every day. That's the price for choosing a hilly location for your home.
