Project Brief
Proposed of Greening of Lebuh Acheh and Lebuh Armenian
Project Principles

  • A more connected city with increased walkability will increase connectivity to help improve business activities and improve the George Town experience.
  • Improving streetscapes, with sensitivity towards the entryway to the city’s heritage zone
  • Empowering communities to be involved in the management of their shared spaces

 

Why we need to green George Town World Heritage Site?

  • To encourage and strengthen community participation in the management and care of/for “public gardens”
  • To encourage positive working partnerships between public and private stakeholders
  • To create awareness about “shared spaces” with particular reference to the cultural identity of a particular “shared space”
  • To do outreach and educational programmes involving the wider Penang community

 

Why Lebuh Acheh and Lebuh Armenian was chosen as the site?

Armenian Park and the streets bordering it were chosen as it is one of the focal point of the Heritage Core Zone. The impact of “greening” the street will be “felt” most keenly as the street will be well shaded to encourage exploration by foot. Armenian Park will also be a welcome relief to take in the unique surrounding environment of Georgetown Unesco World Heritage City.

This project follows the Heritage Management Plan that encourages communities’ participation in the management and care of public greening projects. It is also an extension from the pilot programme of Lebuh Carnarvon.
