THE pressmen were in awe when checking out some of the show units of The Light Waterfront Penang, an iconic development by IJM Land Berhad in Gelugor.
A stunning sight with a view overlooking Penang Bridge welcomed them as they entered a four-storey water villa that came with an individual dip pool, private lift, rooftop area and balcony.
They also visited the man-made coral waterways teeming with aquatic life, which was endorsed as a national record holder in the Malaysia Book of Records 2015 for having the first marine ecosystem in a residential precinct.
The media members had a fun time feeding turtles and fishes in the waterways, besides happily clicking away with their smart phones during the tour at the high-end waterfront bungalows and condominiums.
They were there to attend a Media Appreciation Night 2017 hosted by IJM Land.
IJM Land northern region senior general manager Datuk Toh Chin Leong briefed the guests on their ongoing and future projects.
Spanning over 152 acres (61.5ha) of land on the island’s eastern coastline, The Light Waterfront Penang was being developed in three phases over 12 years.
“It will consist of the biggest and best integrated residential, shopping, dining, recreational, commercial and waterfront living in one lifestyle hub,” he said in his opening speech.
The guests also took part in games and lucky draw while feasting on a sumptuous dinner spread.
