PGCC

Thursday, September 13, 2007

"The RM25bil Penang Global City Centre (PGCC) will feature architectural themes that synthesise local symbolism and historic forms with contemporary-style designs.
Asymptote Architecture principal Hani Rashid said he spent over a year researching Penang’s culture, history, social patterns and way of life before designing the project.
“We design the buildings to blend with the surrounding hills and greenery,” he told a media briefing yesterday.
Rashid and his team – comprising about 60 architects, engineers, and technicians from London, New York and Hong Kong – spent four years designing PGCC, which is being developed by Abad Naluri Sdn Bhd on the present 260-acre Penang Turf Club site.

"PGCC, envisioned to be one of the world’s first zero-carbon city, will be modelled along the lines of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
To be developed by Equine Capital (indirect shareholding), the PGCC will be one of five high-impact projects for Penang State under the NCER."
