Witness the birth of a tropical contemporary waterfront development. 

Unprecedented and first-of-its-kind, a transformation is taking place up north of the Peninsular. Sheltered by the eastern coastline, The Light Waterfront Penang shall rise to be an iconic waterfront metropolis in Penang, pulsating with life.

Marked by its intelligent structures and impressive marine research and engineering, this astounding mixed development integrates living, business, leisure and pleasure all within the 152-acre dazzling sanctuary.


The Light Residential comprises The Light Linear and The Light Collection (The Light Point, The Light Collection I, II, III and IV). It will be the first phase of the entire Light development, which is an exclusive residential segment with an unrivalled sea-view to boast.

Only 1,177 of its high-end residential condominium units and water villas will be available to the discerning few. What more when one of the residential parcels – The Light Collection I sits on an amazing 2.3-acre coral waterway. Private docking facilities are also made available to the more exclusive units at The Light Collection IV. With homes so close to the sea, living the marina lifestyle fantasy is truly a reality.

Business & Lifestyle

Enhancing the global appeal of The Light, Phase II will see a greater architectural addition of business and lifestyle components. The Promenade Precinct and the IT Precinct are the two main precincts, whereby each breathes a new mix of attraction from family and IT malls, to offices, corporate tower and showrooms, to residences, service apartments and hotels.

The IT Precinct will house residential units. The high-tech IT Residential sea-view homes are spaciously laid-out from comfortable studio units to three-room apartments. The technological and urban amenities provided for will complement both living and lifestyle of the technology-savvy professionals.

Once completed, The Light will be ready to host a myriad of activities and businesses from retail to corporate. Its MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) facilities, shopping mall, business, family and boutique hotels, a food and beverage hub, corporate park and marina, will complement and boost Penang’s status as a major IT industry hub for both regional and global markets.

Seafront Park

The third phase of the development, but certainly not the last, is the seven-acre tract, which will be dedicated as a green lung within The Light.

New trees will be planted and ample greenery integrated into the design of the seafront park as part of IJM Land’s environmental preservation. Akin to a garden-by-the-sea, this island paradise will enhance the recreational well-being as well as the architectural elements in The Light.

Greening The Light

Rewriting the rules of conventional development, The Light offers more than just any other mixed development. Self-sustaining in nature, every perceivable structure in The Light subscribe to the green and sustainable agenda, all integrated with state-of-the-art technological systems.

About 5% to 8% of the construction cost has been allocated to green-related technologies. An orchestration of fine tuning passive design to harness natural light and ventilation, replacement of materials used to more sustainable ones, sourcing recycled materials for development and adopting green living practices in homes and offices will also take place.

Taking a pro-active greening role, The Light Linear and The Light Point have recently been awarded the provisional Green Building Index Certificate, making it Penang’s first green homes.

Other projects within The Light will follow suit, further sealing its developer’s commitment towards environmental sustainability.

An urban concoction of vibrant and dynamic giving, The Light Waterfront Penang will take its seat as the most coveted waterfront icon in the future, on par with Penang’s tourism, business, leisure and pleasure pursuits. On that bountiful coastal stretch, you will see a total eclipse of the island.

With homes so close to the sea, living the marina lifestyle fantasy is truly a reality.
