Our Final Thoughts
Ticking the right requirements – location, facilities, amenities and developer background – Pelangi Astana looks like a good prospect as an investment and even a permanent home. Investors, for instance, can take advantage of the numerous universities in the vicinity by renting units to students. Professionals and small modern families are also welcome to settle down here since there are enough rooms to fit every member of the household. But there’s one possible drawback though. Seeing that the development is in a thriving local, traffic congestions can be a problem but we all know that’s somehow an inevitable element of modern living.
