Kuala Terengganu is the capital of Terengganu. It’s also known as the administrative capital, royal capital and the main economic centre of Terengganu. It occupies a promontory jutting into the South China Sea and is flanked by the estuary of Sungai Terengganu.
The city is a microcosm of Malaysia’s economic history including fishing village, strikes oil and rapid modernity ensues. The proposed site location is at Pasar Payang located at the coastal area of Sungai Terengganu. Historically, Pasar Payang used to have active coastal activities with the existence of wet market and the nearby water transportation system.
The existence of traditional market was built by the river as the terminal barter trade between villages before the goods were transported up-river and into the hinterlands. City status was awarded to Kuala Terengganu with the title Bandaraya Warisan Pesisir Air.
However, today the original character of Pasar Payang has slowly diminished due to urbanization and reclamation work undertaken along the riverbanks area. he objectives of this project is to revive the lost of original character of Pasar Payang and enhance the value of historical and culture of KualaTerengganu by taking the advantages of Pasar Payang as the origin of economic hub in Kuala Terengganu through the concept of Permeable City.
