If I would put the whole EkoCheras project analogous to a Dragon – The Dragon of Cheras , I would say Block J& H SoHo is the Head of the dragon and the Tower E Service Apartment is the Tail of the Dragon. You don’t have to agree with me because this is solely my personal opinion.
So finally, Ekovest did unleash Tower E Service Apartment of EkoCheras on Friday 13 Sept just as per what had been shared over PropCafe.Net Facebook about the possibility of Ekovest releasing EkoCheras Block E Service @ Nanyang Property Fair 2013 at Sunway Convention Hall 13 – 15 Sept.
Honestly speaking, after the BBB party at Ekovest last week Saturday, I have yet to recovered from the post BBB syndrome and the “Finger’s KungFu” incident during the VIP prview of Block J and H SoHo of EkoCheras at Ekovest’s office. Believe me not as I am still traumatized by;
first – the crazy market force and interest towards this EkoCheras and
second – the duration of time of finger on the sales chart.
I am kinda want to suggest to organize a finger pointing competition , no pun intended.
I am very curious what will be the response of EkoCheras during these few days Nanyang Property Fair 2013 at Sunway Convention Hall and at the same, took this opportunity to look around and see if there is any interest projects which caught me off guard.
Before all the plan visit to Nanyang Property Fair, my source called me up on Friday 13th Sept 2013 (1st day of Nanyang Property Exhibition) and told me “Hey you know what, your infamous “finger “ story is back just like the Empire Strikes Back but this time is “fingerS” instead of finger and the crowd really show some of their kungfu and martial art skill.
Fingers are everywhere on the sales chart and those standing behind barely can even see what is written on the sales chart and other exhibitors just able to stand aside and watched from the sideline with either surprised, agony or envy. What I am trying to say is ONLY those project which is extremely Hot and High demand will require you to do extraordinary action to secure a unit .
I was told that the developer only started to display the Block E sales chart during the noon time, and the moment it was displayed, the crowd got very excited and behaved quite “strangely”. How strange? I asked the same question too. My friend answer was “Have you seen before how those people who haven’t been eating for a week and very hungry and suddenly there is a loaf of bread hanging in front of them!” It was a bit messy and quite rowdy but fortunately there wasn’t any ugly scene.
At least now I know some project can really stimulate the buyer’s adrenaline to become a “Hulk”. It is worrying isn’t it?
During the Nanyang Property Fair 2013, as far as I can observe on Saturday, no doubt Ekovest booth is the most popular booth with their EkoCheras project. Besides that, their booth is the only booth which come with Visual and Sound effect . At the background of the EkoCheras scale model, a big display which playing EkoCheras’s video clip and I am really quite impressed by the movie clip personally. It was my first time seeing the clip and the sound effect (Can anyone guess which soundtrack being used in the EkoCheras video clip :P) of the clip really help a lot in provoking the “BBB” mode to the next level of “WWW*” atmosphere in my opinion which I failed to see other developer doing the same thing! To my surprise, most of other exhibitors only came with scale model, pictures, posters, and brochures but mostly all are visual aid tools.
Just in case if you are wondering what is the meaning of “WWW” by PropCafe.Net definition :
*WWW : Acronyms of Whack Whack Whack – The next higher level after BBB : Buy Buy Buy
During the exhibition, Ekovest decided to release Block E one of the 2 remaining Service Apartment for booking. Just a quick fact about Tower E service apartment since in this post I am not going to review much details about it because I am saving all the reviews for my up coming up detail review of EkoCheras.
electrifying e-Studio E = mc2 (as per inidicated on the cover page of brochure)

From the brochure, the total size area of the unit is mentioned in m2 (meter)rather than sf (square foot).
* For pricing and size details , it is best you refer back to Ekovest personnel directly.
As far as I know, unit m2 for property is commonly used in other country like Europe, Japan & Australia but it is rather unusual in Malaysia. So I found it quite troublesome to convert it when I read it from the brochure unless the brochures are meant for foreigners!
Did you all notice the yellow bicycle hanging on the wall by the ID? 🙂 Absolutely awesome! Go for Green!
Ekovest might be look “like” a bit of “unorganized” in handling the sales during the launch of EkoCheras but come to think a bit deeper. ….
Just for a moment of thought, is it really that Ekovest was unorganised or was it intentionally?
Hmmmm…. 🙂 commoner like me will never understand how a business world really works.
Let’s see how will Ekovest team handles the rest of the block! and hope they improve and learn from the experience gained from their launch of Tower H.J & E.
The remaining block will be the retails lot and the commercial shop lots (as of now status of the commercial shop lots whether will be self managed or for sales still yet to be decided) , the last tower of service apartment “Tower N” and also Tower A reserved for hotel and showroom.
It will be interesting to see the pricing of Tower N service apartment! The launching date of tower N yet unknown and we forecast it will be scheduled for 2014….so stay tuned!
That’s all for now my hero and heroin, coming next will be the full detail review of EkoCheras – The Dragon of Cheras!
Before I pen off, PropCafe.Net would like to wish all Malaysian Happy Hari Malaysia and hope our country Malaysia will continue to grow and proper as we always believe Unity and Harmony is the key to Prosperity.
