IJM Land: Bringing Life to Ordinary Spaces
IJM Land, with a 30-year history of strong performance, is now ranked one of Malaysia’s biggest property developers. The company has many property development projects throughout the country and is currently expanding overseas with projects in China, Vietnam and London. Dato’ Soam Heng Choon, CEO and Managing Director, says, “We have a land bank of 4,800 acres with a gross development value of US$6.41 billion (RM 20 billion), which we will develop over the coming 20 years.”
Following the company’s philosophy, ‘Delivering Excellence Through Quality’, IJM Land has undertaken key projects whilst reshaping the property development industry within Malaysia. THE LIGHT Waterfront in Penang for instance, has been designed as Penang’s first integrated destination for leisure, entertainment, retail and cultural highlights, while simultaneously offering a luxurious and upmarket waterfront living enclave. This project represents one of the highest proportions of leisure-based services anywhere in South East Asia. It will offer an iconic landmark to distinguish Penang as a world-class destination with a waterfront living resort and lifestyle hub of the highest international standard.
Another major project for IJM Land is Bandar Rimbayu, a mixed township spread over 1,879 acres close to Kota Kemuning in Selangor. An ultimate destination for business, leisure, education and life, Bandar Rimbayu has a perfectly balanced work, live and play environment with excellent cyberspace connectivity and green emphasis. Its identity as a green township is further expressed via sustainable use of natural resources and environmental consciousness. The township will incorporate energy efficiency initiatives, healthier indoor environment, water savings, better connectivity to public transport, the adoption of recycling efforts and the creation of more green spaces.
Ideal local partner
IJM Land has positioned itself as the ideal local partner for international investors. Dato’ Soam points out, “We are a truly Malaysian developer and you can call on us if you are looking for prime locations in Malaysia to invest in. Our geographically diversified land bank allows for unique product mixes and project launches based on market demand.” IJM Land has several major initiatives in the works; from condominiums and commercial developments to townships.
The company’s competitive edge is based on its long-term reputation for reliability and high quality along with its superior customer service. Dato’ Soam concludes, “Achieving excellence is the core focus of our operations. We are also committed to best practices that are in harmony with the environment, following our motto ‘Bringing Life To Ordinary Spaces’ in all aspects of our business. This is the key to IJM Land’s success.”
