Penang Times Square
Penang Times Square (PTS) is an urban center in Georgetown city center (on Penang Island); within walking distance of [email protected], Prangin Mall and 1st Avenue. The land was formerly owned by Escoy; a tin smelting company. The mall was opened first to public in 2009 under the name Birch the Plaza. Other phases (MICE Center and Boutique hotel) are still under construction. The development of Penang Times Square was connected to the famous monorail project. Unfortunately this almost seems to be a cursed project; as it is not finalized yet after years of preparation and construction. Should the Penang Monorail project ever see the light of day, then one of the stops will be within PTS.
