The Penang Gurney Wharf, Penang’s new waterfront park-in-the-city

Penang Gurney Wharf is born where the state govt brings back 60 acres beautifully landscaped parks and open spaces back to the city. The visuals illustrates the how the seafront will look like once the project is completed. Best of all, the cost of the development will be borne entirely by the developer/concessionaire. This is what an honest government can deliver for the people. Without wanting to sound corny, I’m sure this project will go a long way to making Penang an outstanding international and most livable city, by Tony Pua.

Penang unveiled today plans for a new seafront public park for its popular Gurney Drive on the foreshore that is soon to be reclaimed. The state government initiative, named as Gurney Wharf, will be created on land to be reclaimed by Tanjung Pinang Development Sdn Bhd (TPD), a subsidiary of Eastern & Oriental Berhad (E&O). The proposed Gurney Wharf concept masterplan is divided into four areas that will feature a seaside retail food and beverage area, water gardens, a man-made beach and a coastal grove. The exhibition, titled “My Gurney Wharf”, will also be displayed at the Gurney Plaza mall for nine days from this Friday. For more details, check out the post from themalaymailonline.com
