The Light goes green

IJM’s The Light waterfront project in Penang will be developed in accordance with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) - a green building rating system established by an international sustainable building movement.

IJM Land managing director Datuk Soam Heng Choon said the company was committed to building eco-friendly buildings as these features would help purchasers save on utility bills.

“This is especially important now with cost of energy on the rise. Besides eco-friendly technologies, the project boasts of wind turbines, solar panels, a modern water management system and green roofs.

“The use of recycled materials on selected areas and a state-of-the-art solid waste management system is also on the cards,” he said.

He also said that once the project was completed, residents and visitors would be able to enjoy a massive seafront park under Phase 3 of the development.

Featuring 1,186 units of high-end waterfront condominiums, an office tower, four hotels, a family hall, an IT mall, a fashion mall, dining and entertainment facilities, the project is located along the Penang’s eastern coastline. - By The Star
