Penang's latest shopping mall to boast floating stage

A floating stage will be built at the island’s sea-fronting Straits Quay retail marina enclave located at Tanjung Tokong in Penang.

The project is expected to be completed within the next one or two months where top entertainment performances would be held there.

Eastern & Oriental Berhad retail division-Straits Quay senior manager Emily Teh said with the food and beverage outlets having alfresco style dining facing the sea, shows held at the stage would definitely be an eye- catcher.

She said there were also plans to hold musical festivals on the stage.

“With the Performing Arts Centre of Penang taking a built-up space of about 20,000sq ft, people can really expect great shows,” she said.

She said Penangists would get to catch shows that were normally held in Kuala Lumpur once the stage was ready.

Teh said diners could enjoy the awesome promenade night view by the sea.

“There will be cruise liners passing by. Patrons can also view part of the mainland and Gunung Jerai in Kedah from the marina,” she added.

Teh said people could also stroll along the promenade and enjoy the evening breeze.

She anticipated that most of the retail outlets would open by April and the whole mall should be occupied by mid year.

Apart from designer and boutique outlets, there are also plans to organise street markets every first weekend of the month.

Wow, the latest and newest attraction in Penang is growing bigger and better...although I heard the food there are pricy!!!
