KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 1): OSK Property launched Rubica, a new serviced apartment, in Harbour Place, Butterworth on Saturday (Oct 29). Located in Jalan Assumption near Jalan Chain Ferry and Jalan Raja Uda, Rubica will be OSK Property’s seventh project in Harbour Place.

Harbour Place is an enclave comprising several residential and commercial properties, and is located between Penang Island and Kulim.

"Rubica, which comprises a single 35-storey tower spread over 1.19 acres (0.48 hectare) of land, is the seventh phase we are adding to the Harbour Place enclave. Specially designed to provide a premium and exclusive living experience, it is an excellent choice for homebuyers and investors alike, owing to its strategic location between Penang Island, Bukit Mertajam and Kulim,” said OSK Property chief executive officer Ong Ghee Bin in a speech at the launch.
