The Rifle Range flats at Ayer Itam are one of the oldest residential flats in Penang. The name was derived from the past when the area was actually being used as a rifle range. Built under a low cost housing project with an area size of 450-500sqf per unit, the flats were reportedly completed in the 1970s.
