THE LIGHT Waterfront Penang wins Silver FIABCI Award
Posted on June 2, 2015
IJM Land Berhad’s iconic development wins World Silver Award under the Master Plan Category in the FIABCI World Prix D’Excellence 2015


Dreamy: THE LIGHT Collection II – Marina

A WATERFRONT*project by IJM Land Berhad, THE LIGHT Waterfront Penang, was conferred the World Silver Award in the Master Plan category at the FIABCI World Prix D’Excellence Awards 2015 gala night on 30 May 2015.

IJM Land managing director Edward Chong said, “It is a great honour for us to receive this globally recognised prestigious award. This award is a welcome recognition of our efforts and investment in design, sustainability and innovative technology, which will translate into healthier, sustainable and conscientious workplaces, homes and public spaces that benefit our residents at THE LIGHT Waterfront as well as the community in Penang”.

The visionary development is IJM Land’s initiative to showcase the best in integrated waterfront living with residential, commercial, hospitality and entertainment components all housed in one dynamic hub. This involves work to reclaim over 152 acres of land. This project was conceptualised as a regeneration scheme for the Jelutong area.

Three-phase integrated waterfront development
THE LIGHT comprises three phases:
• Phase One (42 acres) – Residential (state-of-the-art waterfront living with a total of 1,177 units comprising condominiums, water villas and individual marina docking facilities)

• Phase Two (103 acres) – Mixed Development (shopping mall and retail shops, hotels, MICE facilities, service residences, condominium, marina and corporate offices)

• Phase Three (7 acres) – Seafront Park (jogging path and bicycle tracks and other recreational facilities including enhancement to the existing ecosystem of the area)

The Gross Development Value (GDV) for the entire development is RM6.5 billion.

Yeow Thit Sang, His Royal Highness Yang di-Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan Tuanku Muhriz Ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir, IJM Land Berhad managing director Edward Chong and FIABCI world president 2014-2015 Robyn Waters posing for a picture at the event.

The project has many firsts in Penang including a full integration of IP solutions for home automation through ‘fibre to the home’, integrated CCTV system to monitor site security, fully wired-up network with a fibre optic backbone, plug-and-play and other aspects of a green development for tomorrow’s generation.

The development also earned Malaysia’s Green Building Index (GBI) certification for incorporating environmentally sustainable elements throughout the development.

The project has been designed to be the heart of the community. Much attention was devoted to creating user-friendly facilities and promoting green and outdoor living for residents and visitors. Features include beautifully landscaped recreational linear park complete with amenities such as cycling tracks and jogging paths designed to cater to users of all age groups. The cycling tracks form the largest contribution to the State’s endeavour to build a cycling track all the way from Queensbay Mall in Bayan Lepas to George Town. Approximately more than 50% of the State’s cycling track alignment (total distance of 12.5km) is within THE LIGHT master plan.

There is also a self-sustaining marine ecosystem of the waterways, which act as both a conservation and education tool. This effort is supported by the Turtle and Marine Ecosystem Centre (TUMEC), an agency under the Malaysian Fisheries Department.

THE LIGHT Waterfront Penang was also named winner in the Master Plan category at the FIABCI Malaysia Property Awards 2014.

A new iconic hub

IJM Land has big plans for the rest of The Light Waterfront, especially the 103-acre Phase II, which is being developed in a 50:50 joint venture with Singapore’s Perennial Real Estate Holdings Ltd.

Chong wants The Light Waterfront to become an iconic tourist spot in Penang — selfie central and a destination to be hash-tagged and checked into — that must be visited at least once. In fact, he compares its eventual popularity with that of KL City Centre.

The first part of Phase II will comprise 256 condominium units. However, given the current weak market sentiment, it will only be launched in 2Q2016.

Other components of this phase include a mall with a gross retail space of 1.5 million sq ft, thematic shops, a convention centre, two hotels with a total of 750 rooms and an office tower.

The 287,000 sq ft convention centre is expected to accommodate up to 600 booths during exhibitions or up to 800 tables for functions. “Now we are tweaking the centre to accommodate shows like Disney on Ice. We can hold up to 10,000 people for a concert. So, with this kind of capacity plus the catchment generated by the mall, offices and hotels, it’s a lot of people,” laughs Toh.

The office tower is expected to have a gross floor area of 656,000 sq ft.

Chong says this precinct alone is expected to create 26,000 jobs.

Recognising the growing number of malls in Penang — a news report in September said about 7.6 million sq ft of retail space would come onstream over the next five years, adding to the current 9.07 million sq ft — Toh says IJM Land expects the mall to be successful, based on two reasons.

Firstly, it will benefit from the population of the entire development. “We know we can create our own population as we have the convention centre as a pull factor. Let’s say I have an event every weekend, I’ll have a few thousand people, including those staying in the hotels,” Toh says.

Chong reckons that the mall will draw a few thousand people every day, thanks to Penang’s robust tourism industry.

It will stand out by offering something that is not a typical boxed retail experience, in keeping with The Light Waterfront’s philosophy of bringing the outdoors indoors, says Toh.

“We are not making a concrete box where everything is inside and you don’t know if it is raining outside or not,” he adds.

“We are by the waterfront, so we need to give people both the indoors and the outdoors, flow them through the promenade along the seafront. Bring the courtyard indoors.”

Inspired by The Waterways, IJM Land is mulling an aquarium in the mall as well. Toh says Aquawalk, the company that runs the famous Aquaria KLCC, has approached them numerous times to take part in this project. “But I said we don’t want a normal aquarium. They are very keen and they said they’d try their best.”

As a homage to Penang’s street food culture, the mall strives to fill its lanes with the best of the state’s famous hawker fare.

“We want to recapture the old charms of Penang, the street shopping, small lanes, heritage fašades, clusters for hawker food, fashion. This is how we want to make the experience different,” says Toh.

The mall will also include a theme park. “We are now talking to a theme park operator about a compact, modern park. In fact, the operator opened one in Manila in May,” he adds.

The theme park will tentatively occupy 38,000 sq ft (less than an acre) and have nine rides. “You’d think you need 20 to 30 acres to build rides like roller coasters and all that, but the operator said it’s not necessary because what they do is they strap you in the seats that move, turn off the lights and project onto a 360░ screen. In fact, you can change the theme of the ride,” says Toh.

IJM Land will have the option of licensing popular themes such as The Avengers or create its own rides for a fee.

“It’s very interesting. It’s a different ride each time you go in. And there’s no need for engineering, checking and safety [unlike rides like roller coasters], so you can create something compact. With the mall and convention centre and everything, it will be a hub [of activity] in Penang,” he says.

IJM Land envisions the mall’s promenade as the place to be in, especially during New Year’s Eve when fireworks go off at the iconic Penang Bridge. “It will be a party all night long,” he enthuses.

“We will have something going on there every festive season. Last year, when we had a New Year’s Eve countdown at Karpal Singh Drive (seaside promenade at nearby Bandar Sri Jelutong). It was bigger than the state’s event, we had 11,000 people. We told the state that this year, we’ll be holding our own countdown again and we’re expecting 15,000 people, so the chief minister is coming.

“So we told our architect that when we hold New Year’s Eve countdowns at The Light Waterfront, we are expecting at least 25,000 to 30,000 people.”
