Penang Plaza (GPS: 5.42144, 100.32506), at 126 Burmah Road, is one of the earliest shopping malls to be built in Penang. Penang Plaza comprises a three-storey podium topped by another seven-storey of office block. It occupies an area of close to 60,000 sq meters along Burmah Road. The mall has a total lettable area of 91,000 square feet and 88 parking bays. It belongs on the same plot of land as the adjacent Hotel Royal. Both were acquired by the Singapore-based Hotel Royal in July 2008.

The present anchor tenant of Penang Plaza is Giant Supermarket. The original anchor tenant of the plaza was FIMA supermarket, which operated under different names including Cold Storage.

Penang Plaza underwent a total makeover in 2009-2010. The makeover gave it a new and more sophisticated façade. The interior finishing was also redone.
