Penetron project: Melaka Harbour City, Malacca, Malaysia
Located on Pulau Malacca, a tropical man-made island at the gates of Malacca, Malaysia, Harbour City brings together a Theme Park, shopping mall and hotel, making it a unique holiday destination for the entire family. Developed by Hatten Group, this RM 800 million (USD 206 million) is expected to open its doors to guests and visitors in 2019.
Built on a total area of 2.2 million square feet (204,000m²), Harbour City will be home to an extensive shopping mall spanning over six floors and more than 800 retail stores. A cruise-themed hotel, with 780 rooms and 14 suites, will be located adjacent to a giant 500,000 sq ft. (46,000m²), world-class indoor and outdoor water theme park that features a man-made sky beach. The two towers (18-30 floors each) will be occupied by a Hatten Chain Hotel and an international 5-star hotel brand.
In order to protect the substructure from the ingress of seawater, CHY Architects specified PENETRON ADMIX to treat approx. 4,500m² of concrete for the basement slab, water tanks and swimming pools.
