BHL Tower is a commercial skyscraper within the city of George Town in Penang, Malaysia. Located at Northam Road, the 30-storey building was completed in 1995 and stands at a height of 108 m (354 ft).[2]

History[edit]

BHL Tower, completed in 1995, is one of the oldest skyscrapers along Northam Road after the nearby MBf Tower. It originally served as the regional office of BHL Bank, which was later merged with other banks to form its successor, CIMB.[5] To this day, CIMB maintains a branch within the structure.[3]
