PROPCAFE Exclusive News : EkoCheras @ Cheras By Ekovest Bhd – Speacial Preview Launching on 7th Sept for VIPs (“Live”)


7th Sept 2013 – This date could be just an ordinary day for most of us but definitely not for Ekovest Bhd and those property crazy like Propcafe. I believe this date will definitely be one of the most historical event for Ekovest Bhd – The Launching of Special Preview of Ekovest’s  first ever commercial integrated project at Cheras called EkoCheras at their main office lobby located Jalan Gombak for the VIPs and only specially invited guests.

Just for your information, the actual date where EkoCheras is open for public booking is on this Sunday 8th September from 10am.

The event was remarkably very successful and the respond was overwhelming. Believe me.. it was so HOT until you feel like taking out your top and jump on the table and shout “Let’s Party”..

Let’s party…
Sorry… I know wrong picture…


And the temperature keep on rising till you can’t reall stand the heat and almost as equivalent as the burning temperature while you watching F1 Grand Prix at Sepang circuit. Sorry, wrong analogy.

What I meant is as hot as the girl in F1 Grand Prix at Sepang.

Sorry again. wrong picture
but i know you all will like it!


This project is really “HOT” and how could it be possible for PropCafe.Net members to miss such an important event? So we decided to go to pay a visit as a double Zero 7 agent and do a short write and “live” report from the actual site.

Just a short brief about this EkoCheras Project and I am not going so detail into this project for today’s write because I will write another detail review about this project later.

We went there as early as 730am, and to our surprised there were already few property enthusiasts gathering out the main entrance of Ekovest Bhd main office  until the main door was open at 900am and need not explain furthermore, the BBB party had started.

Some people say that is like buying veggie at the market and some say like pasar malam (night market) but for me who goes to Pasar Pagi every weekend morning, when I compared, it is actually more happening  than the morning market I visit every weekend!

Crowd watching like watching stock market. BBB!
Crowd studying and appreciating the scale model
Look at their eyes! All looking at the sales chart to see what units are still available.



The majority of the crowd is Chinese and the age group range from mid 20’s to late 50’s.

The crowd just getting bigger  as reaching noon but by that time Block J (which got discount) almost 90% booked.

So we thought the party will be ending soon and PropCafe.Net members can go home but NO!

The crowd switched their attention to Block H (Without discount ) and started to pick their units there! OMG..what’s happening?

Looking at the current situation, at that time we were really thinking that this project will be fully booked even before its official launch. The crowd is so fierce and furious until I saw people actually pressing with their finger(s) on on the sales chart to mark their territory until the staff came to put the red dot sticker to secure the desired unit for them.

Well, the guy really waited for few minutes with this finger(s) on the chart! I just cannot stop trying to imagine if someone want to book 10 units, is he or she going to use all his or her 10 fingers there! And the best part is , for those who having a small palms and short fingers how to do? So from now I advise you train your finger more like practicing Piano or Guitar , it does help perhaps and if you don’t know how to play Piano or Guitar,  i think it is time for you to attend classes  otherwise very hard for you to stretch your all your fingers to 10 different units which is far apart at the same time! 🙂

By 1:45pm … Block J & H was almost 90% booked (excluding the 30% Bumi Lots) but the crowd still not dispersing and some even demand they wanted to book the Service Apartments (which is not available for booking during this launch).

Obviously, those who left with a big Grin on their face got with what they desired and those who coming late left empty handed.

Is the moral of this story is “Siapa Cepat Dia Dapat” ? Well  I am skeptical about  this statement whether is still valid and applicable to Malaysia property?

Is the Malaysia Property market really still bullish? Or are they just ignorant?

Who are actually this people?

For those who are interested to know more feel free to visit their office, like I mentioned earlier, it is open for public booking on 8th Sept  2013 Sunday, who knows you might be “lucky” if there is still unit available!!!! Good luck to you!

  1. Where exactly is the location with respect to leisure mall?

    1. Updated with GPS and Google map link

  2. Avatar Caffe Corretto says: Reply

    M, check the gps above. Or google cheras autocity. The site includes autocity plus the shops beside.

  3. Nice write up… how this compare with Maxim nearby?

    1. Once I had done FULL review of EkoCheras… you will know the answer yourself 🙂

  4. Recently another very strategically located Shamelin Star @ Shamelin Perkasa also have very good pick up rate. Property market Cheras is definitely booming.

    1. You mean this Shamelin Star?
      Very good pick up rate means? Sold out in 1 day?

  5. dunno i should be happy or sad.
    happy because there seems to be still extremely good demand for properties. and this comes from all circle of life. the crowd seems diverse enough and doesn’t seems like the affluent type. but what is the main objective of the purchase is still questionable.
    sad because, before ‘official’ launch, and looking at the trend, it is looking more and more increasingly difficult for the average joes to purchase unit intended for genuine own occupancy.
    i can understand if the number of units are relatively small and hence the units are catered to some inner circle, but when it comes to ‘common’ projects with relatively huge number of units, i can smell trouble brewing.
    so what comes next? would higher powers intervene?
    only time will tell.
    in the meantime, kudos to ekovest and team.
    thanks to propcafe for this interesting updates. would stay tune for the detailed version.

  6. […] 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 […]
