Check Hotel Room Rates in Penang

Jesselton Villas is an upscale gated and guarded housing estate being planned in George Town, Penang. To be developed by Berjaya Land Developer Sdn Bhd, Jesselton Villas will offer 208 freehold bungalow lots to prospective buyers on a 58-acre plot. These plots are located at the end of Jalan Batu Gantung, to the west of the Penang Turf Club, and immediately adjacent to the affluent neighbourhood of Jesselton Heights.

Properties at Jesselton Villas are being offered at RM552 per square food upwards. Being a serviced community, there is a planned maintenance charge of RM0.08 per square foot. The property will only be expected to be completed in February 2018.

Jesselton Villas is the result of the purchase of Penang Turf Club land by Berjaya Land Bhd (BLand), as reported in The Star Biz Week on 17 August, 2011. This follows the failure to develop the area by Abad Naluri due to public opposition to the Penang Global Centre (PGCC) project. As a result, Berjaya Land through its founder and chairman Tan Sri Vincent Tan came in to purchase 22.8 hectares of the freehold land within the Penang Turb Club for RM459 million cash. Apart from this gated and guarded community, the company is also expected to build affordable housing units in the same area, though a distance from the high-end properties.
