(The Star) Lavish life at the waterfront

Future inhabitants of Ideal Property Group’s Queens Waterfront in the south-eastern section of Penang island can expect a resort life in a tropical paradise.

Located next to Queensbay Mall, the 36.53-acre development is conceived as a timeless island getaway that blends tranquil serenity with sophisticated luxury.

Its master plan consists of an 11.74-acre residential component, a 6.1-acre marina, a waterfront promenade, a sports centre and an international school.

The first two phases of the residential component, known as Queens Residences — Q1 and Q2 — will be featured at the Fair 2017 in Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon Mall from Thursday to Sunday.

Set on 3.04 acres of land, the Q1 has a pair of 20-storey towers, each housing 250 units of stylish condominiums with living spaces ranging from 950sq ft to 1,650sq ft.

With practical layouts that create an aura of spaciousness and grandeur, these homes epitomise exclusivity and luxurious comfort. Indicative selling prices start from RM787,900 onwards.

The Q1, which will also have commercial shoplots on the ground and first floors, enjoys panoramic views overlooking both the two Penang bridges and the channel between the island and mainland.

It is equipped with a myriad of lifestyle amenities, spread across a split-level podium and roof top area. They include an infinity pool overlooking the sea, family Jacuzzi, and open garden seating area.

The list continues with a sky beach pavilion and barbecue area, outdoor and indoor gyms, rooftop viewing decks, mini library and reading room, sports lounge, elderly games room, dancing and yoga room, hanging cabana, multi-purpose hall and themed play areas for children.

Meanwhile, the Q2 is a single 24-storey block with 450 condominium units with similar built-ups of 950sq ft to 1,650sq ft, indicatively priced from RM805,700 onwards.

Some units are dual-key condos which are essentially two homes in one – great for extended families who want to live near each other but have their own privacy.

Set on a 2.9-acre plot, the Q2 also has an alfresco commercial area on the ground floor, along with exclusive office spaces and nursery with day-care services on the first floor.

Its facilities are family-oriented, and include an Active Zone where one can relax in hanging cocoons as the kids enjoy themselves at a children’s pool with water play area and lagoon.

A Tranquility Zone features a terraced infinity pool, with shaded family Jacuzzi and spa, as well as an aqua therapy gym. Residents would also be able to grow and harvest their own produce in a mini garden.

All the homes in Queens Waterfront are enclosed within a guarded and secured environment with three-tier security system, along with separate entrances for both residential and commercial components.

The development’s strategic location puts one within walking distance of Queensbay Mall, and a short drive away from various other retail, F&B, banking, education and healthcare amenities.

Work on both the Q1 and Q2 has commenced, with completion expected for the first and second quarters of 2021 respectively. Both are freehold.

Ideal will also be opening for registration its Imperial Grande condominium in Sungai Ara. Set on 4.6 acres of land, it has two 45-storey towers with 469 units each.

The size is 1,000sq ft, with expected selling prices of RM475,800 to RM619,400. Work is expected to commence by year-end.

Planned facilities include a swimming pool, kid’s pool, reflection pond, Jacuzzi, BBQ corner, pavilion, water slide, games room, multi-purpose hall, jogging track, playground, outdoor gym, fitness station and herb gardens.
