The alluring urban edges of Penang Georgetown have experienced a notable decline, failing to adequately serve the local populace. Furthermore, as a crucial transit point linking the cruise ship and ferry terminal, it has struggled to attract tourists and passengers.

This thesis aims to “rejuvenate the waterfront along Georgetown’s eastern shoreline” while “reclaiming the urban public realm.” Through a comprehensive proposal encompassing commercial, recreational, conservation, and community-oriented activities, the objective is to breathe new life into this area. Acting as an “Urban Connector” and “Urban Green Belt,” the proposal seeks to redirect the flow of people from Georgetown’s city center to the shoreline, revitalizing surrounding abandoned structures in the process.
