New Straits Quay (SQ) Shopping/Entertainment Mall is currently in its soft opening phase with many restaurants and bars already enjoying customers (and the other way around!).
Straits Quay is a neo-colonial building with what I believe to be an ideal location. It reminds us of a similar Mall in Singapore (the name of which escapes me but it is the one where you get the cable ride to Sentosa Island) with its seafront location and up-market retailers and Food & Beverage outlets.
According to the E & O Group: –
"The E & O Group's core business, apart from hospitality and lifestyle, is in property development and property investment. On Penang, E & O's masterplanned seafront development Seri Tanjung Pinang is one of the most sought after residential addresses among locals and expatriates, especially with its latest launch, the Quayside Seafront Resort Condominiums, the first condominium in the region with a 4.5 acre private waterpark.
