It was formerly a shooting range used by the British Army and later in the end of the 1960s, low-cost flats were constructed within the area to provide affordable housing for the urban poor.

It was in 1964, the Malaysian federal government approved a pilot project to construct prefabricated high-rise housing at Padang Tembak, with a total of 3,744 units. The construction of the flats, Penang’s first low-cost high-rise housing project, was undertaken by the Penang Development Corporation (PDC).
