Gurney Drive, Georgetown

Gurney Drive (also known as Persiaran Gurney) is a freehold town located in Georgetown, Penang. It is a popular seafront promenade where locals used to sit and enjoy the sea breeze and sea view before the fence was put up. The two extremely popular shopping centres in the island is located here, namely the Gurney Paragon and Gurney Plaza. The Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is one of the most well-known local eateries on the island. However, due to its popularity among out-of-state visitors, the price has risen higher than a coffee shop elsewhere in the state. There are many high-rise buildings and the road is frequently jammed in this area.

The built-up available in this town is 3,000 sf to 5,000 sf for houses. Other neighbouring towns nearby are Botanic Gardens, Free School, Han Chiang, Mount Erskine, Permai Village, Pulau Tikus, Scotland, Seri Tanjung Pinang and Taman Jesselton.

Terrible maintenance. When something breaks down, all management does is put up a stupid sign, and that's the end of it. Nothing gets repaired. Management known to embezzle funds.

One of the early high rise condominium along Gurney Drive but the facilities are still very well maintained. Nice sea view from high floors

Residents with card only allow to use the facilities. And to apply for the card, residents normally have fo wait for months. I am renting one of the units, the day I moved in i was stopped by guard and denied entry. Reason given is they suspected I am renting one of the units as service apartment or b&b. As B&B is NOT ALLOW here. The guard house team are very rude and not friendly. They clamp your visitors car if more than 1 hour and demand for money, owners despise tenants who are renting the place, politics and gossips, etc etc....

Very old and seems to be overrun with vacationers and homestays right now, which is illegal.
