What We Think
Sitting directly next to Penang expressway, Light Linear has quick access to connectivity. Other routes linking the site to other key destinations include the Penang Bridge, Jelutong Highway and Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah among others. But while proximity to an expressway is definitely a plus, it can also become a drawback due to the noise. Potential investor also need to pay attention with choosing the right units for your taste.
If having a great waterfront view is very important for you, then the high units are ideal choices. Choosing the lower units will only leave you disappointed because the views are practically blocked.
