    For the next few years, many Johoreans, especially Johor Baru residents, were unsure about what Iskandar Malaysia was, let alone what to make of the ambitious master plan.

    Many did not understand that southern Johor would be transformed permanently into a future regional growth region, rivaling the many international cities around the world.

    It can be argued that most of the explanations were not communicated properly at that time by the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda).

    LIKE most Malaysians, I must admit that I tend to take things with a grain of salt and need a lot of convincing before I can commit to something.

    When I first heard about Iskandar Malaysia back in 2006, there was a fair bit of scepticism. Many of my friends also wondered: “Where and what is Iskandar Malaysia?”

    KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has granted a substantial tax break to a zone in a showpiece investment project near Singapore, a move likely to provide crucial support to a $800 million initial public offering of the area’s developer next year.

    The Medini area in the southern state of Johor is the only section of the $30 billion Iskandar Development Region to get an exemption from a 30 percent property gains tax announced in October to cool soaring property prices, government officials said.

    SINGAPORE – Singaporeans are streets ahead of any other group of foreigners snapping up property developed by UEM Sunrise at Iskandar Malaysia.

    They accounted for 74 per cent of purchases made at the various developments by non-Malaysians.

    Most Singaporean buyers are people who go to Johor frequently for business and those wanting a weekend home, said UEM Sunrise chief executive Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim on Thursday.

    “They buy more of the upmarket products, as foreigners can only buy units that are above RM500,000 (S$195,000), and they have been buying both landed homes and strata developments,” he added at a progress update of the Iskandar projects.

    According to Johor Real Estate and Housing Developers Association (Rehda) chairman Koh Moo Hing, Lee’s adverse comments on Iskandar Malaysia were inaccurate and did not reflect the real situation at the economic corridor in southern Johor.

    Efforts to transform the Malaysian border zone near Singapore into a bustling commercial corridor appear to be on track after a rocky start.

    The zone, known as Iskandar, is emerging as an attractive opportunity that deserves to be on the radar of those considering investment in the new growth centres of Asia.

    Iskandar is a 2,216 square kilometre urbanisation project, three times the size of Singapore. Nusajaya, the residential zone at its core, which stares across the water at the Singapore skyline, is just a 45-minute drive from Singapore’s Changi airport. The zone is geared towards a residential metropolis with educational, medical and theme-park infrastructures being used to attract resident migrants from Singapore. Logistics, transport and industrial-related infrastructure is being developed in adjacent zones.
