Hillcrest Residences is 14.8 km from Magazine Circus. As far as scenery is concerned, few sites can beat Hillcrest Residences. From these two tower blocks, you can an unimpeded view of the southeast part of Penang Island unfolding before you. Having said that, these residences are more ideal for senior executives working in the south side, such as the Bayan Lepas Industrial Zone. It is rather far from the city, and you may get tired of having to negotiate the hill road to your home every single day.
