The Light Collection II is the second project among The Light Collection series offering low rise condominium and water villas. The Light Collection series is part of the larger mixed development known as The Light Waterfront in Penang developed by IJM Land Berhad.

The Light Collection II

Closely following The Light Collection I smoothly sailing ahead, comes the second wave of light: The Light Collection II received tremendous response from potential house buyers and was fully sold upon official launching date.

Imitating the landscape of undulating hills behind, the buildings in The Light Collection II are massed along the spine of the entire waterfront site. To complete the 360 degree panorama, the roofline from the highest apartment at seven storeys tapers down landwards, opening up for all 297 units a background vista of the shore as it is viewed from the sea – a scene that inspired this island-like feel.

The architectural inspiration was sparked by Penang’s historical waterfront environment; an eclectic but inimitable medley of coastal landmarks, colonial legacies and local lifestyles. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the memory of old kongsi houses, rising from the sea on stilts, was developed into the reality of The Light Collection II – where residents live as though on a series of islands.

By having one-third of the area actually covered in water, the pier-like buildings of The Light Collection II truly seem to be afloat. Resembling a hand reaching out to touch the sea, the wharf-like Pier Apartments radiate like outspread fingers opening up to enjoy the best-possible light and marine-view from all three sides.

The Light Collection II comprises five blocks of 7-strorey condominium with a total of 297 units. There are 24 layout types to choose from, the 1-bedroom studio unit, 2 & 3-bedroom condominium, duplex & triplex units with built-up area ranging from 517 sq. ft. to 3,617 sq. ft.

Unitech has been appointed by IJM Land to provide complete professional quantity surveying and cost management services for this unique sea-front development. We have recently completed the pre-contract service under the appointment where Main Contract Works are successfully awarded in September 2011. The project is scheduled to be completed by March 2013.
