Real Estate Review: The Light Waterfront, Gelugor, Penang

The Light Waterfront is an integrated leisure, retail, entertainment and cultural development in Gelugor, on the east coast of Penang Island. Developed by IJM Land, the Light Waterfront will comprise a commercial precinct where there will be a number of malls catering for differing tastes and needs. The site is along the northern part of the Penang Bridge.

The development of the Light Waterfront is parcelled into three phases. The first phase will comprise three residential projects, namely the Light Linear Condominium, Light Point Condominium and the Light Collection Condominiums. Phase Two is planned to be a mixed development that will include, among others, a hotel, a marina, office towers and malls. The third phase will be a sea front park.

Present Development (The Light Waterfront Phase I)




The Light Waterfront is 7.1 km from Magazine Circus. Using the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, you can reach the city center within ten minutes if there is no congestion. Access roads to the Light Waterfront leads directly to the expressway. This provides quick access to all parts of Penang Island. However, getting in and out of the site may require negotiating a big circle due to no opportunity to U-turn.

Public Transport

To be determined, as the project is still under construction. As of now, the area is not supported by bus routes. The nearest bus stop is along the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, which is served by Rapid Penang bus 307 and 401E.


Traffic is heavy along the expressway, more so on Friday evenings when there are regular jams at the Tunku Kudin exit.
