The PGCC, with an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM25 billion, will be sited on a 104 ha plot where the Penang Turf Club currently stands. Abad Naluri bought the land for RM488mil in 2002.
The PGCC was designed by Asymptote Architecture, under leadership of Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Coutur. It will be built on a 185 hectare plot (1.9 square KM), featuring two iconic towers - each standing 200 meter high (656 feet). These towers will boast continuous flowing curves with shining crystalline and transparent curved surfaces. It will take at least 15 years to complete.
