The Straits Quay - Seri Tanjung Pinang
The Straits Quay is part of the Seri Tanjung Pinang project by E&O developments. A quay of wharf is a structure on the shore of a harbor where ships may dock to load and unload cargo or passengers. Such a structure includes one or more berths (mooring locations), and may also include piers, warehouses, or other facilities necessary for handling the ships.
Quay is a well established term in Penang. It is home to the long standing Weld Quay. It rekindles images of the busy and historic seafront community in Penang. And worldwide, Quay, also brings to mind a place where festivals are held.
The Straits Quay
The Straits Quay is set within the waterfront community of Seri Tanjung Penang. It's a 12.4-acre retail enclave offers everything from boutiques to bistros, signatures seafood restaurants to seaside cafes, antique shops to art galleries, bars and boatrides. All enriched by Penang's unique cultural blend, nautical heritage, and views that sweep across bobbing sails at quayside to the Andaman Sea beyond.
The idea of the Straits Quay is a place where you can stroll along the promenade. enjoy sunshine and sip tea at one of the seaside bars.
Quayside will be located on a prime seafront land and billed as the first in the region to have a sprawling 4.5-acre waterfront park exclusively for residents of the seven blocks of condominiums — five of which are 26-storey high while two are low-rise seven-storey blocks.
The idea is to bring the best of Penang together at the sea. This includes food & beverages, fashion, entertainment, tourist attractions and beauty & Wellness. It will be the new "must visit destination" in Penang.
One of the attractions will be the Fish Market. Here you can not only buy fish but also watch the local fishermen coming (twice a day) in with their fresh catch. You can bring the fish back home or simply bring it to one of the restaurants and let them prepare it for you.
The Fish Tank will be another major "must see". It will be a 5 (five) storey aquarium-themed restaurant set within the Straits Quay Lighthouse. This will be most definitely a real must see and experience the underwater world of Malaysia.
Further there will be a performing arts center, water taxis and of course an extensive tourist information boot. It will be fully wheelchair accessible with post office, banks, loading areas, police and CCTV. It will be indeed a complete township inside Penang.
