The One

The One located on a 13.5 acre leasehold site at Bayan Lepas (Penang Cybercity), comprises smart serviced suites, corporate office suites, corporate retail units, terraced shophouses and bungalows. Besides commercial properties, The One would also house Malaysia's first technology museum.

The One signifies a new era in intelligent buildings - the marriage of technology and building sciences will benefit the population immensely as this is Penang's pioneering effort to join the growing number of high-tech buildings worldwide.

Phase 1, The 1-Square comprises 57 units of three-and-a-halfstorey bungalow shops and three-storey terrace shops, built around a central plaza offering 20ft-wide corridors.

The next phase being primed for launch is 1-Sky, a 29-storey tower offering serviced residences, corporate offices and 260,000 sq.ft. of retail space on the lower levels.

Also on the cards is 1-Broadway, a precinct that will accommodate 46 shops intended for fine and exquisite dining within a 55,000 sq.ft. three-storey block, and 1-Atrium, which will feature 112 retail shops in a three-storey block.

The 277,000 sq.ft. 1-Atrium is also envisioned to become an upscale bazaar catering to the needs of residents of the surrounding Bayan Baru area.

Other up-and-coming components are 1-World, a 23-storey intelligent office building with 260,000 sq.ft. of space; and 1-Zone, offering more corporate retail units and residential suites in a sixstorey block.

time sharing concept which is bad.
and not an ethic developer. no matter how well you package yourself, your past track records tell a thousand words.

- victim of their previous project

Who is this unethical developer and what has he done to you to deserve flaming here? I agree the area is very congested and being leasehold I would think twice unless it is cheap. How much per sq ft? I think they are not selling hence the leasing.

it is cheap but SEEMS like REALLY a Not so ethic developer!:(
my friend made a downpayment after only found out from her friend as below:
it has been mentioned once by the sales person that hmm this is commercial rate or etc

(which never further explaination)

here is what u gonna pay for this:-
it is commercial unit which means you pay 38% higher price on water and electricity bills for every months.

it is commercial unit thus u're not entitle to withdraw EPF for housing loan.

i am pity for those buyers who are not alert on this. my fren asked again personally and the developer only admitted on this..
she is withdrawing it now! (heard that the downpayment is refundable within the 2 weeks)

so now u know why this spacious condo cost an affordable price :(..pls share with your friends..

To all owners of The One. Ideal property is into it's cunning mind again after CEO project. When you buy property from them, there is a clause that says,"Due to unforeseen circumstances, they have the provision of 6 months delay and need not pay you when VP is late". My project is late by almost 3 months and now they want to write to me saying that after 6 months after much follow up with them politely. Owners of The one please contact me at for further discussion. TQ
