BayStar Condominium comprises two 11-storey blocks with a total of 160 units. Each unit has a size ranging from 1,562 to 2,491 square feet. All units are corner units in a semi-detached layout, affording great views of either the sea or the mall.
The proximity of Queensbay Mall is a definite plus point for BayStar. Other conveniences such as restaurants and banks are also close by. On the negative side, it is built on reclaimed land, which is not favoured by many. Furthermore, the only access roads connect to the Bayan Lepas Expressway, which is prone to traffic jams.
25 February, 2014: Asking price for a 1,562 square-foot unit is RM1.3 million.
Facilities include 24-hour security, key card access, infinity swimming pool and wading pool, gymnasium, multi-purpose hall, pre-installed broadband and Astro cabling, and landscaping.
BayStar Condominium is 11.3 km from Magazine Circus. Nonetheless, it would be possible to reach the city in 15 minutes or less on the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway.
There isn't any schools within the vicinity of Queensbay. The nearest are Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Keong Hoe in Sungai Dua; and Kwang Hwa Primary School and Shih Chung (Primary) Branch School in Sungai Nibong.. The nearest market is the Lip Sin Market and Super Tanker Market. The nearest shopping mall is of course Queensbay Mall. The nearest hospital is Pantai Hospital. The nearest petrol station is the Petronas at Bayan Baru, the two Shell stations at Sungai Nibong, the Caltex at Sungai Nibong and the Esso near Bukit Jambul Complex.
Access to Queensbay is through the Sungai Nibong Expressway and Jalan Aziz Ibrahim, which connects to the Sungai Nibong junction at the Express Bus Terminal. Both the expressway and Jalan Aziz Ibrahim experience heavy traffic especially during rush hour, Friday evenings and Saturday evenings. When these two are jammed, you are cut off from the rest of Penang - but at least you can go shopping at Queensbay Mall.
