This corner building was formerly the medical clinic of Dr. Ong Huck Chye, a Municipal Commissioner and prominent Straits Chinese leader in the 1930s. Today, it is the premises of the Penang Heritage Centre, established by the Penang state government to promote heritage awareness and activities.

The Heritage Centre, Penang is housed within the elegant Syed Alatas Mansion at 128, Armenian Street, the site of a successfully completed pilot restoration project for the conservation and rehabilitation of Penang’s historic Acheen Street – Armenian Street cultural heritage enclave.

Two of Penang’s most important monuments, the Khoo Kongsi and the Acheen Street Mosque, as well as numerous attractive historical sites are located in this area.
