Crystal Creek, Taiping
Crystal Creek (also known as Crystal Creek Resort Homes) is the highest and the first freehold condominium in Taiping. It is developed by Crystal Prestige Sdn Bhd of AM-EL Group, which is also the developer behind the high profile development project in Kuala Lumpur, St John Woods Residence.
Crystal Creek comprises of 2 phases with phase 1 being the two 25-storey towers, 3-storey semi-detached and 3-storey super link houses. The first condominium tower contains 196 residential units with a typical unit having a built-up of around 1,346 sf. A typical unit is built with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Facilities provided here include the infinity swimming pool, clubhouse, covered parking lots, gym room and 24 hours security.
Crystal Creek, being situated at the foothill of the famous Maxwell Forest Reserve, is within close vicinity to many amenities. SMK Taman Tasik is only 15 minutes walking distance away. Other educational institutions such as SM King Edward VII, SMK St George and SK St George 1 & 2 are located within a 15 minutes’ drive-away from the development.
Other amenities such as medical institutions like Klinik Rakyat and Hospital Taiping are just less than 10 minutes’ drive away from Crystal Creek. The nearest supermarket is the Huang Sheng Enterprise, situated about 2.1km or a mere 5 minutes drive away serves as an easy alternative to grocery shopping.
More established shopping alternatives like The Store is located just mere minutes of driving distance away from the condominium, providing a wider variety of shopping experiences for the residents of Crystal Creek. Besides that, there is also a Petronas located within a stone's throw from this property.
Crystal Creek is easily accessible using Jalan Tupai, Jalan Merdeka or Jalan Taman Tasik. The Kamunting Bus Terminal is less than 15 minutes drive away from the development and serves as another travel option for residents at this residential enclave.
Crystal Creek has a huge advantage as it is nestled amongst the nature finest in Taiping. With the Maxwell Forest Reserve and also the natural spring waterfall as its backdrop, it is truly a piece of art by just looking out the windows that is facing this scenery. Units that are facing the view of nature will have an added advantage as the value of the units might be higher based largely on this point.
Besides that, this development is the first gated and guarded development in Taiping and in most people’s mind, security is the utmost importance and this might boast Crystal Creek's investment potential being a unique development in the vicinity.
However, there is also doubt that this development can perform in the subsale market since this is the first condominium development in Taiping. There is no evidence that Taiping residents are into the idea of living in a modern condominium.
