Besides the houses, The Glades is also furnished with its own neighborhood mall in the enclave, known as The Glades Plaza.

The Glades's location is very strategic as it is easily accessible to many popular destinations. Its surroundings are quiet and the scenery is breathtaking. Within walking distance, there is One City. With an upcoming LRT station development within the area, public transport will never be an issue. All these features have made The Glades like living in nature within the city.
The launch prices of The Glades from Sime Darby are quite steep. Besides that, some people have condemned that the residential enclave is built in only one area, where all types of residences share their 24-hour security and facilities.
