Surrounded by shops, restaurants, food centres, cafes, groceries, and close to major embassies, hospitals, banks and many more, yet on this tropical island, here you can enjoy a relaxing lifestyle in a stunning natural environment with an array of amenities on your doorstep. The charm of George Town Full of colonial relics, George Town is the colourful, multicultural capital of the Malaysian island of Penang. Once an important Straits of Malacca trading hub, the city is known for its British colonial low-rises, Chinese shophouses and mosques. It has been listed as one of the top global travel destinations by various international media organisations as well as one of the most liveable cities and sought-after retirement destinations in Asia. George Town is Malaysia's most important medical tourism hub and northern financial centre. In addition to its reputation as a popular tourist destination, George Town is known as Malaysia’s mecca for authentic local cuisines. The many public food centres offer a great variety of very affordable local food. Like the architecture, the local cuisine captures George Town's multicultural history. Modern homes in established neighbourhood Moulmein Rise is a contemporary apartment complex rising to 27 storeys, consisting of 84 luxury suites along with a two-level podium of retail shops. Living at Moulmein Rise is where style meets convenience. Far-reaching water views across the picturesque George Town, superbly crafted finishes and sophisticated textures, with a strong attention to detail, all come together to create these impeccable condo units. Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a full-length balcony, the apartments are flooded with natural light. As driving is an integral part of everyday life in Penang, each condo unit comes with two car-parking lots. The overall building design takes on an integrated approach by merging retail and luxury urban living. The lower floors of the retail podium extend the street’s commercial space by providing two floors of retail shops; many F&B choices such as Sushi Wafu, Rising Ramen, Les Grains Bakery, BMS Organics, BlackBall dessert café; nail and hair salons, etc. The “Common Ground”, located on the second floor, is a 18,000-sq ft co-working space for socialising and networking. Or if you feel like going out for some retail therapy, after an easy 10-minute walk you’ll find yourself at the Gurney Paragon Mall and Gurney Plaza, where supermarkets, restaurants, retail stores, cafes, pharmacies, and everything you need for everyday life. Major private hospitals and clinics are all within a 5-10-minute drive. Because it is located in an established community with plenty of community and lifestyle conveniences nearby, this property appeals to a wide range of expats and tenants, making it not only a second home for buyers from Hong Kong but also an ideal turnkey buy-to-let property. Out and about Travel some 7 kilometres uphill and you will find yourself on the scenic Penang Hill, or Flagstaff Hill (Bukit Bendera) as it is officially known, which rises 821 metres above sea level. At the hilltop, you can command panoramic views of the town and over the mountains of Langkawi and north Kedah in a clear day. Penang Hill is also the habitat of over 100 species of birdlife, ranging from ordinary garden species to exotic deep forest inhabitants. For families with kids, the Adventure Zone Theme Park provides more than 30 fun, friendly-family activities. It is divided into three zones – the special features section, kids’ area and toddler sector with modular play equipment. For bigger teenagers, Escape Adventureplay Penang has more excitement and thrill to offer with its adventurous facilities such as zip-lining, free fall, tube slide and tree rope swing. Infrastructure upgrades drive property value Among the massive projects being planned that will improve Penang’s road accessibility include four major highways, an undersea tunnel linking Butterworth to Persiaran Gurney, and the Bayan Lepas light rail transit (LRT) scheme — all of which are estimated to cost RM46 billion under the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP) initiative. Good-value property and improving transport links are some of the main reasons attracting foreign home buyers and investors in their droves to Penang. Not only is Moulmein Rise a place for you to reside in style, socialise and have fun with friends and family, there is more room for value growth as Penang continues to transform into an international city.
