Island Glades, PenangIsland Glades, Penang (3 July, 2017)

Island Glades is a residential neighbourhood in Penang. Although today it is one of the older housing estates, until the beginning of 1960, it was still countryside. Before Island Glades was developed, Green Lane was just a single country road leading south. Among the sights already established there included Convent Green Lane, land for the now Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, Penang Free School, the Siamest Buddhist temples, and some government workers quarters.

Island Glades developed rapidly between 1960 and 1975. New houses filled up the former plantation land (hence "glades"). When they were brand new, every row had a different colour roof. So it was quite a vibrant sight. In the early 1980's there was an attempt to rename it Taman Mutiara, but that never really catch on. Today, new high rise residential housing continues to be constructed at the edges of Island Glades, as far as there were still land to build.

Public Transport in Island Glades

Island Glades is 6.2 km from Magazine Circus, making it an ideal place to stay for those working in the city.
