PETALING JAYA: It was not just another normal Saturday at Perumahan Kinrara Bhd’s sales office in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong, Selangor. More than 100 home buyers, some of whom had been camping in the premises for 11 days, are waiting to purchase homes at Sentosa, a link house development in Phases B39/B40 in the freehold Bandar Kinrara township.
The queuing had started on July 29 with 20 hopeful buyers waiting at the covered corridor outside the sales office. On Aug 7, a day before the launch of 80 units of homes, they were moved to a nearby tent set up by developer I&P Group.
There was a slight commotion about 30 minutes before the launch when some prospective buyers formed an alternative queue. There was a heated exchange of words with those in the official queue but calm returned in time for the launch at 9am.
The event attracted an overwhelming response as many believed these were the developer's last batch of link homes in Bandar Kinrara 5. All 80 units were sold within three hours.Read the full report in the Aug 17, 2009, issue of City & Country, the property pullout of The Edge Malaysia.
