The KOMTAR Tower, in the city of George Town in Penang, Malaysia, is Penang's tallest skyscraper and the sixth tallest building in Malaysia. KOMTAR is an acronym for Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak, named after the second Prime Minister of Malaysia.

The tower was constructed in 1974 and completed in 1986. When the skyscraper topped out in 1985, it was originally completed with 65 floors and a height of 232 metres. At the time of its completion, the KOMTAR Tower was the second tallest building in Asia after Sunshine 60 in Tokyo. The building maintained its status as Malaysia's tallest skyscraper for another 3 years before being surpassed by Menara Maybank in Kuala Lumpur in 1988. To this day, KOMTAR Tower's status as Penang's tallest skyscraper remains unchallenged.
