Think City is a community-focused urban regeneration organisation that aims to create more liveable, resilient and people-centric cities.

Think City is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad and funded by Yayasan Hasanah. Established in 2009, its first task was to rejuvenate the historic city of George Town, Penang. The success of this led to the expansion into 3 other cities, Butterworth, Kuala Lumpur, and most recently Johor Bahru.

Today, Think City works closely with local governments, international agencies and various local communities, building effective partnerships and enhancing capacity along the way. Through this, we hope to be able to deliver long-term holistic and sustainable solutions for generations of today and tomorrow.

Kick-start the urban regeneration of its focus cities;

Build on the momentum of civil society driven activities and private sector initiatives;
