Think City Sdn Bhd is a special project vehicle established by Khazanah Nasional Berhad, the investment holding arm of the Government of Malaysia. We are a 100% owned subsidiary of Khazanah tasked with implementing and managing the George Town Grants Programme (GTGP).
Through the GTGP, we hope to transform George Town into a culturally vibrant and sustainable city through projects that are catalytic, encourage partnership, be developmental, inclusive and sustainable. We also encourage projects that are creative and innovative, particularly with regards to solving urban problems.
Ultimately, the GTGP will rejuvenate the George Town World Heritage Site (WHS) through conservation, restoration and revitalisation works, and help enhance George Town’s Outstanding Universal Values by protecting and removing from the endangered list trades, services and ways of life traditionally associated with the WHS.
We also hope to make a substantial contribution towards the creation of a Special Area Plan and a Heritage Management for the George Town World Heritage Site.
