Komtar Penang is very old already, perhaps state government should refurnish this once the tallest building in South-East Asia, especially the interior of this building.
State government should also revive the whole project of Komtar since some land around Komtar is abandoned now......this gives bad impression to foreigner because Komtar is located in city centre of Penang.

Georgetown and Penang as a whole need a total remake...

The views from Komtar are nice as i went up there during my recent Penang trip (February 2006)... But the windows have not been cleaned for ages, isn't it? The view was actually marred by window-stains which showed up on the pix i took of the skyline!

Perhaps a gondola-crane (like those u see in KL and PJ skyscrapers) should be installed on the roof of Komtar so that they can do one thorough cleaning job and spruce the look of this landmark!

stupid building!!

aaaarrrrgh!!! i don't want to talk about it but i really can't stand it anymore!!

1st, the location is WRONG!! i can't believe they build it in the middle of George Town's historical area just because that area is strategic. well, if it really use it's strategic location properly as a transport hub for Penang, at least those heritage buildings torn down will not just go to waste. (but of course i prefer those buildings to be preserved than having KOMTAR there)

2nd, what the hell is with its maintenance?? that place looks like a ghost house and the government can still work in it?? do they have no shame?? or to their eyes, it looks beautiful? if so, they are retards!!
