#PenangNumberOne - MENARA PENCAKAR LANGIT TERTINGGI DI PULAU PINANG KOMTAR merupakan akronim bagi Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak yang diambil sempena nama Perdana Menteri Kedua, Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak. Beliau telah merasmikan majlis cerucuk bagi fasa pertama bangunan ini pada 1 Januari 1974. Menara KOMTAR ini telah direka bentuk oleh Architects Team 3(AT3) Singapura yang dipimpin oleh Datuk Seri Lim Chong Keat, adik kepada Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu. Selain itu, Menara KOMTAR pernah merupakan menara tertinggi di Malaysia sehingga tahun 1985. Kini, ianya masih kekal menjadi menara pencakar langit tertinggi di Pulau Pinang. Pada masa yang sama, Menara KOMTAR turut menjadi bangunan kedua tertinggi di Asia. Menara ini menempatkan pusat membeli-belah, hab pengangkutan dan pejabat pentadbiran bagi Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang. Pada asalnya, Menara KOMTAR ini memiliki 65 tingkat dengan ketinggian 232 meter. Namun selepas projek pengubahsuaian, menara ini telah menjadi 68 tingkat dengan ketinggian 249 meter. Terdapat beberapa perkara menarik tentang Menara KOMTAR ini. Antaranya ialah kubah geodesik bagi kompleks ini diilhamkan oleh reka bentuk Buckminster Fuller. Antara peristiwa tentang KOMTAR yang tidak dapat dilupakan oleh penduduk di sekitar George Town ialah pada tahun 1983 iaitu sebuah kebakaran besar telah berlaku di tingkat 43 bangunan tersebut yang ketika itu masih dalam pembinaan. . . . #PenangNumberOne – THE TALLEST SKY SCRAPER IN PENANG KOMTAR is an acronym for Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak, named after the late Second Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak. He inaugurated the piling ceremony for phase one of the building on January 1, 1974. The KOMTAR tower was developed by a Singaporean Architects Team 3(AT3) firm led by Datuk Seri Lim Chong Keat, younger brother of Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu. The tower was once the highest building in Malaysia until 1985. Today, it remains the tallest skyscraper in Penang. At the same time, the KOMTAR
