The Komtar Tower in George Town is Penang‘s tallest skyscraper, standing at almost 249 metres tall.
Komtar, an acronym for Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak, is actually a multi-purpose complex containing administrative offices of the Penang state government (including the Chief Minister of Penang’s office) and the Penang Island City Council, retail outlets and a transportation hub. Due to its towering height, it serves as one of the most prominent landmarks on Penang Island.
Komtar Tower was completed in 1988; at the time, it was Asia’s third tallest skyscraper.
