By mid-2018, Penangites are expected to see Gurney Drive transform into a world-class Gurney Wharf which the state government hopes would be akin to Fishermen's Wharf in San Francisco and Canary Wharf in London.

The proposed Gurney Wharf encompasses a seaside retail F&B, water gardens, beach and coastal grove, modelled after Singapore’s success with this at Gardens on the Bay.

The wharf will be created on land to be reclaimed by Tanjung Pinang Development Sdn Bhd (TPD), a subsidiary of premier lifestyle property developer Eastern & Oriental Berhad (E&O).
