May 8, 2010 at 9:29 AMjeremy tan

Maintenance is RM0.50/sft. Even higher than E&O Quayside. Reclaimed land is less than 2 years old and they have already commenced piling : )

May 18, 2010 at 11:26 AMliz

I asked developer said soft launch is 21/5/10 and 29/5/10 maintenace RM0.38

May 27, 2010 at 9:24 AMliz

Jason, why you will entitle 5% discount and only for this week? How about following week? If only you entitle 5%, we are treated not fair by IJM as a buyer.

May 27, 2010 at 1:55 PMDavid

Life has never been fair, dont you agree? haha..
If you can't overcome it, why don't you get along with it?

May 28, 2010 at 7:58 AMjeremy tan

Maintenance is RM0.55/sft inclusive of sinking fund. Reclaim land is less than 2 years.

With the success of the soon to complete Platino project, i am sure the light collection will yet to be another highly success showcase project for IJM.

June 1, 2010 at 9:33 PMAnglo Wax

You are right clement, IJM is one of the reputable developer. The Light Collection 2,3 and 4 are soon to be built. I personally like the living concept: Green, luxurious, and relaxing...

August 13, 2010 at 10:32 PMPenang Fan

Please read negatives reviews about Platino first Luxury condo ever built in Penang. The soon to be completed "Luxury Platino Condominium" The entrance was cheap looking and use of chicken wire fencing for the security wall is shear rediculous. If that is acceptable to IJM. What kind of "Luxury" can they offer to this Light Collection - plastic pool and more chicken mesh fencing? I have doubts about IJM standard in "Luxury concept"

August 16, 2010 at 5:44 PMliz

ya I agree with u (Penang fan) about the Platino using poor fencing material. I guess The Light will not using such poor materials. Because I heard The Light is using Singapore-Sentosa Cove architect what an incredible news from IJM.

August 16, 2010 at 6:33 PMUnknown

nothing for sure.. using which archiect firm doens't guarantee anything...
IJM dare to use poor material for Platino and there is nothing to stop them from repeating the same act again for the light....

August 18, 2010 at 11:41 AMliz

my fren said their fencing is using metal, cost is much more expensive than brick wall. But I still prefer brick wall fencing than metal. Haha...

August 23, 2010 at 6:00 AMPenang Fan

Liz, IJM used chicken wire fencing not expensive metal fencing see the photos put up at Platino link. Why are you defending IJM? Are you working for them? IJM cost savings for their "Platino Luxury Condo" is unacceptable.

August 23, 2010 at 7:37 AMUnknown

well Platino is more expensive than Light... IJM can do such cheap thing to Platino... What u guys think about Light? ... all the same happened at Spring la...

August 23, 2010 at 11:32 AMUnknown

IJM , after bayswater, is no longer a reliable developer anymore. They have change their motto from " excellence through quality " to " excellence through profit ".

August 27, 2010 at 2:03 PMThe Disavowed Me

well-said.... i hate ijm already..... i use to respect them and thought they r a awesome developer and i bought a unit in PJ8 condo in pj... and regreted a lot... overpriced... profit based and demand based selling price... declining in quality.. even there was so many problems with the spring condo pg... i think mah sing , sp setia and hunza is better....ijm is very sly and cheaters...

September 1, 2010 at 2:49 PMgong

I don't see any chicken wire mesh fencing at Platino site.I just saw some bangla workers are building a retaining wall behind the Platino site.

September 1, 2010 at 3:03 PMliz

Hi Penang Fan, I'm not working with them. I'm staying in Bayswater so everyday looking the progress.Just kepo only.Lol...

September 3, 2010 at 12:16 AMtedd

Bros,stop dreaming of selling the unit at high price . so far there is no actual transaction at these price. The selling offer is more than the actual demand . Majority of Platino buyer are Speculators. Many of them are buying 2 to 3 units. They are expecting the price will move like Bayswater . It is impossible . Bayswater is better than Platino. Once the Pearl Regency( Block A and B) are completed, there will be no more seaview for platino.We will see more selling pressure once the developer hand over the key and the bank start charging the interest. We can take SP_stia Pearl Is_land as good example. The Central bank is going to tighten the lending policy in order to curb speculation. In my opinion it is best to sell now rather than waiting. The price will start falling once the selling pressure appear. good luck

September 20, 2010 at 12:18 AMUnknown

Hello buyers and investors. Just for your information and reference. If u plan to invest in this project I will suggest you to look at the platino luxury condo b4 u make any decision to continue buying Ijm project. Do u think platino looks luxury? It only look good on picture.

September 22, 2010 at 1:59 AMUnknown

An Open Letter to IJM

With regards to the soon-to-be-completed Platino Luxury Condo, a lot of buyers here are very disappointed with the final product.

First and foremost is the parameter fencing. Compare the fencing of Bayswater and Platino. The fencing facing the Tesco Hypermarket looks like some medium cost condo. When buyers pay for a “luxury” item, these buyers are not the average Tom, Dick and Harry. They also pay for privacy. With the “see-through” fencing, there is not much privacy for Platino buyers. By standing near the fence, outsiders can actually see into the car-park and mark the residents there whether they are at home or not. It is hope more trees will be grown to cover up the holes in between the fencing.

As for the fencing facing the jungle near the Marine Police area, it is definitely way below the standard of a Luxury Condo. It could qualify for medium cost condo, at most. The so-called “green chicken wire mesh” is definitely a no-no. On top of that, there should be a retaining wall build around that slope to prevent future landslide which may be caused by heavy rain. Or else one day, all the residents will have a bloody muddy car park. And since I believe most of the residents here will own “luxury” cars as well, I think someone is going to get sued if the cars are damaged due to landslides.

What “luxury” image does IJM want to project with Platino’s entrance? If this is the final product of the grand entrance, then IJM should go check the dictionary for the meaning of “grand”. If they don’t know, please ask their architects and engineers to drive around Gurney Drive or Tanjung Bungah to seek for better examples. A normal guard-house with the “touch-n-go” entrance control bar to keep out strangers is the least that all other condo provides. Nothing luxury about it.

Looking at the progress of the 4-seasons garden, they look more like a jungle than a garden. But since it is a “work-in-progress”, I will reserve my comments until the final product is unveiled.

Another visible point is the balcony railing. Compare to Bayswater, Platino’s balcony design look very cheap. The use of thin metal railing is a safety issue for families with kids. A lot of residents would have to spend extra money to modify the balconies to make it safer and more solid. Even the neighbouring MPPPP hostel complex has better balconies!

If IJM wants to appear as a high-end developer with the launching of the Light Projects, Platino should be a show-case to attract future buyers. With the sub-standard completion of Platino, no wonder the Pearl Regency nearby is a failure!

You can con some people some of the times but you cannot con all the people at all times. Those who bought Platino or has invested into Platino is going to make sure that IJM live up to the name of “LUXURY”!

Future Resident.

September 28, 2010 at 11:49 AMPenang Fan

Attention Future Buyers be warned: Please read about the bad finish and the use of chicken wire fencing for IJM's first luxury condominium - Platino.

I regretted believing the Platino will be of the finest finish with a wow factor but it turn out that the medium cost Bayswater also an IJM project was better quality then Platino. Bayswater's car park is bigger, entrance gate grander, security wall better, balcony railing better etc.

So think twice before you buy any future IJM properties. I will never buy IJM's again.

October 24, 2010 at 3:31 PMUnknown

Attention of all the buyers. Please read all the comments and see all the picture of IJM PLATINO in this blog b4 you continue buying IJM projects.

Dont simply waste your hard earn money... For those you have bought it, be ready for big big disappointment with IJM Project.

November 28, 2010 at 6:23 PMUnknown

Penang house and condo really crazy..even a lot of negative news from IJM, the prices always up and up even the worst project like the spring and natilus bay, prices also not cheap :(

So if got money, better invest / buy penang property, so regret no buy last 2 years ago.

December 5, 2010 at 2:33 AMSamNg

buy a landed properties better...if your balcony not good enough , fix it your own... if the sun too bright.. apply some tinted film tht the colour u like... u can do what u like. if u buy a condo u cant do what u like. nowdays people tell more lies. u pay for luxury they give u cheap.

January 21, 2011 at 4:51 PMtanprop

For IJM new projects there are always group of people who try to get rich fast by just flipping their units after booking. These people went early during launch, or even manage to book a few units before the official launch through internal connection with IJM. What they have to do next is simply find some waferfish, sign some back-doors spa and that's all done with money safely in the pocket. Take example in this case, an 517sf studio was only priced ~370k during launch, is now asking 420k. Not bad at all imagine these people were just need to hire somebody to queue up earlier, and able to bag 50k within 1 month time. Such people and act shall be condemn, and pls don't buy from them. They have no intention to keep the units at the first place nor have the ability to serve the loan. If you happen to see them in person during the soft launch you will know what i am trying to say. Lets not encourage them or else this will be the viscious cycle which continue to haunt the genuine and sincere buyers next time in penang.

January 26, 2011 at 5:13 PMRoman

Hi Prop,

I fully agreed with your comment. Almost every residential projects in Penang is flooded with these group of speculators. I.e Setia Pearl Island.....

April 4, 2011 at 3:33 PMAnonymous Anonymous

when to use 'apartment' and 'condominium'...

apartment: as in the physical high-rise building - 'apartment block', 'apartment unit', 'apartment building', 'apartment project' (if the project does not involve other common area like swimming pool, children playground etc)

condominium: encompasses the apartment buildings as well as all the exterior areas - 'condominium area', 'condominium project".

sometimes they're used interchangeably to refer to a property, though one typical distinction is that condominium has exterior land areas and apartment does not.

sorry i couldnt help but to raise this when i saw the description above ...

COLLECTION I is the last 1 in Collection series which are below RM1million a unit. Grab a unit a.s.a.p before it is too late. After Collection is going to Mixed Development township in 2-3 years time.

A new concept, a new design, a new penang!
We can see Penang is changing nowadays. Come with new facade and design residential township where only KL have. THE LIGHT is selling like hot cake in Penang. Heard they are going to launch last phase of the residential apartments in August 2011. Bravo!
Penangites are clever choosing a property to buy.

September 2, 2011 at 7:36 PMtyh

Alice, The last time i heard IJM still has few big units left in collection 2. i have a unit grd floor with garden however im not ready to let go yet. Maybe after completion.

Hi Mr Tan,

In that case, why wait for tsunami? Just walk a few steps downstairs, and walk across jelutong highway blind folded. You will be free of installments from tomorrow onwards!...:D...yeah!

April 17, 2013 at 9:00 PMMr.Tan

Hi, anyone is now staying in LC1 ? How do you all find these water heaters in your units. My water heaters cannot provide showers for more than 2 people. Although I had made complained to this developer, IJM, but still can't supply proper hot water for shower. Pay so much price and get so cheap water heaters.
