Bandar Cassia, Batu KawanBandar Cassia, Batu Kawan (3 May, 2015)

Bandar Cassia (GPS: 5.25601, 100.43386) is a new township being developed in Batu Kawan, Seberang Perai. It was named after the Cassia, a genus of tree that produces lovely yellow flowers. Bandar Cassia is presently rapidly developing, as it is the closest site on the Penang Mainland to the Second Penang Bridge.

Bandar Cassia is accessed from the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge via Exit 2802. It can also be reached from Bukit Tambun, by taking the new road heading south from the Penang State Stadium.

In 2012, it was reported in AsiaOne News that the Penang State Government engaged Surbana International Consultants, a privatised division of Singapore's Housing Development Board, for building consultancy services in the development of Bandar Cassia. According to the report, the Penang State Government is planning to construct 11,800 apartment units on a 80.9 hectare plot there. This would be the biggest public housing project in Penang State.

At time of writing (May, 2014), property prices at Bandar Cassia is a mere shadow of that in Butterworth, not to mention that on Penang Island. A double-storey house over here goes for under RM300,000, though the figure is expected to rise when new developments kick in. Perhaps the most exciting on the pipeline is Aspen Vision City, to be anchored by Ikea Penang, the first Ikea store in the northern region.


The Borneo Post (4 September, 2014) reports that the Penang State Government has entered into an agreement with Ivory Properties Group and Ikano Pte Ltd for the development of Bandar Cassia. Ivory Properties will develop the township through its investment company Aspen Vision Land. A 245-acre piece of land in Bandar Cassia has been purchased for the purpose of residential and commercial property development.

Getting there

At present, Bandar Cassia is not served by public transport, so the only way to reach it is by private vehicle. You coming from Penang Island, take Exit 2802 upon crossing the bridge proper.
