What We Think
Developed by IJM Land, one of the country’s leading developers, it is no surprise that Bayswater has made its market in Penang Island. Not only is it a proud testament to the brand but it rightfully joins other successful IJM developments in the area including Pearl Regency, The Maritime and Vertiq.
However, discerning investors should note that traffic jams are part of the area’s profile. As a thriving location where locals and international tourists, investors and buyers flock, congestion is to be expected. Some residents have also complained about noise pollution considering the development’s proximity to major roads. It’s location is more a plus than a drawback though especially for those looking for a reasonably priced modern condominium with quick access to amenities and easily accessible to boot.
