Harbour City is the first completed piece of what promised to be an interesting development puzzle, but has perhaps reached the limit of the developer’s intentions.
Named Harbour City, presumably because of it’s proximity to Sutera Harbour Resort (because it’s nowhere near any other harbour), the completed development was supposed to include a separate hotel of its own, which is the neglected part.
No construction is currently being carried out on the hotel, but Zara’s Boutique Hotel by Radius International does occupy a corner of the main structure closest to the city.
Harbour City further includes a 7-11 and a few other shops, making the development look rather busy on the surface, if you ignore the dusty escalators, which seems to not have escalated anything in quite a while. The offices on the upper floors appear to still be quite vacant.
Where Harbour City really shines however, is in its restaurants. From Kak Nong on the one end, to Sala Thai and D’Patio on the other, if it’s local flavours you’re looking for, then Harbour City is a good choice for a bit of a food safari.
Most of the restaurants specialise in Malay food making a Harbour City a good choice to satisfy those cravings.
