Gurney Paragon is a residential and retail complex in George Town, Penang, Malaysia. Situated at Gurney Drive, it was launched in 2013, and consists of a nine-storey shopping mall, two condominiums and an office block.[1][3] To date, the twin condominium towers, each measuring a height of 155 m (509 ft), are the third tallest skyscrapers in Penang.[2]

The shopping mall's main anchor tenant is TGV Cinemas, which operates a multiplex at its top floor.[4][5] The mall also contains over 200 outlets spread out over nine floors, including a number of international brands.

Retail outlets[edit]

Gurney Paragon houses over 40 fashion boutiques and 30 eateries, such as T.G.I. Friday's, Starbucks, Charles & Keith, H&M, Padini and Victoria's Secret.[6] Other international brands within the mall include Debenhams, Celebrity Fitness and Daiso.[5] A Sam's Groceria supermarket is also available at the ground floor.

Entertainment[edit]

TGV Cinemas manages an IMAX-equipped multiplex within Gurney Paragon's ninth floor. The multiplex, which consists of eight standard halls and an IMAX theatre, is TGV Cinemas' first IMAX-equipped multiplex in northern Malaysia.[4][7]
