Builders step up unveiling of new launches amid rising demand, stiff competition
Now considered one of Malaysia’s hottest real estate spots, Iskandar Malaysia has been pulling in developers looking to cash in on the demand for properties there.
Local developers may have had a headstart, but they are now facing stiff competition from larger builders from Klang Valley and beyond Malaysia.
The rivalry has led to a mushrooming of options for buyers. In the next two to three years, thousands of units are scheduled to be completed, given the number of projects launched in the last year or so amid bullish sentiment and robust sales. For example, Afiniti Medini, a mixed-use residential-commercial development, sold 88 units in just 51/2 hours.

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.

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.

JOHOR Baru has never had it so good, as far as the hotels are concerned.
Room occupancy is at an all-time high, not only in the state capital, but also in south Johor, which is commonly known as Iskandar Malaysia.
A check with several hotels in the city revealed that the rooms were fully booked until the end of the year.
This is a good sign for Visit Malaysia Year 2014.
The opening of Johor Premium Outlet in Kulaijaya, Legoland Malaysia and Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park, both in Nusajaya, have drawn Singaporeans as well as visitors from out of town.

ISKANDAR Malaysia, a region of 2,217 sq km just north of Singapore represents an important economic and geographical region for Malaysia.
To Singapore, it is potentially a hinterland, provided conditions are right.
In 2005, the Federal Government of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur and the state of Johor agreed that there had to be a focused and developmental approach to realise the region’s full potential.
The plan was to eliminate uncoordinated and duplicated development and grow a sustainable metropolis.
Malaysia’s state investment arm Khazanah Nasional was tasked to study this and came up with a conceptual plan which became known as the South Johor Economic Region concept plan.

With most projects now broken ground or operating, Iskandar Malaysia is in position to rake in the value from investments made
Was it a rebranding, the entry of the Singapore government’s own investment vehicles, improved bilateral relations, or the entry of crucial names like Pinewood Studios (of James Bond fame), Legoland, Marlborough College (of Kate Middleton fame), Traders Hotel and the Hello Kitty theme park? Or was it the attractive tax and government incentives, the heating up of the Singapore property market, or just timing in its serendipitous mysterious way? Whatever it is, it seems like the Iskandar Malaysia economic region in southern Johor, since its grand scheme was announced as the South Johor Economic Region about seven years ago, is coming together.
