The Rice Miller City Residences is a residence which offers the unprecedented exclusivity of living within the historical inner city of Georgetown, Penang. Enjoying views of the sea along Weld Quay, the residence is an integral part of The Rice Miller Hub, a multi-faceted and diverse, urban redevelopment of the area with a series of commercial and residential titles. Drawing on the rich history of the island as a port city where people of distinct cultures gathered to trade, work and eventually live, The Rice Miller Hub hopes to revive that sense of coming together with the integration of residences, retail spaces and the luxurious, Rice Miller Hotel within several edifices of colonial-inspired architecture.
The Rice Miller City Residences overlooking the Swettenham Pier and ferry terminal offers 99 units of condominium units, each bearing the premier address of its location in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Complying with efforts to sustain the beauty of the historic city, the two residential buildings are only 5 storeys high with arched arcades and windows, and a facade of elegant decorative moulding reminiscence of the island’s foregone colonial times.
Though architecturally inspired by the beauty of the past, the residences at The Rice Miller City Residences endows residents with the utmost comforts of today’s needs, with necessary appliances, quality fittings, built-in storage and 24-hour security with CCTV surveillance, access control and an intercom system. Embracing the demand for individuality and practicality, the homes come in an impressive assortment of 12 layouts, with spaces ranging from a comfortable 700 sf studio to a substantial 2,530 sf 3-bedroom suite.
Amenities at the The Rice Miller City Residences are few albeit luxurious, with access to residents-only facilities such as an infinity pool which appears to be one with the sea, fitness equipment, as well as the luxurious Hammam spa where residents can go to unwind. Residents can also take a stroll along The Carriageway, a shaded promenade where the Rice Miller Hub’s collection of commercial outlets are expected to house a wide selection of restaurants, boutiques and other conveniences upon its completion. The Godown just across The Carriageway also provides a great space for entertainment purposes, being a refurbished and repurposed 1920s warehouse built in colonial times.
The residences at The Rice Miller City Residencesenjoy ease of access to various parts of the city as well as the island. Flanked by the main roads of Church Street Ghaut, Weld Quay, China Street Ghaut and Beach Street on all four sides, the roads join an extensive network of roads and lanes within Georgetown, a testament to the prime location of the residence. The mainland is also just a ferry crossing away, with the terminal being right across Weld Quay. Public transportation, mainly in the form of the Rapid Penang bus, is also a contributing factor to its strategic location, with the Weld Quay Bus Terminal just a short walk away.
Though elegant and convenient living within The Rice Miller City Residences comes with a hefty price ranging between a minimum of RM996,250 to several millions, it might help to see the residences not just as a property, or investment. Rather, the redevelopment may be viewed as the procurement of a slice of history and the satisfaction of being a part of a collective effort in preserving the image of nostalgia in the ever-urbanising city of Georgetown.
