  3. 10 key facts why Gerbang Nusajaya will be the game changer for the next phase of Iskandar Puteri


    July 1, 2016 by iskandarinsider


    With the iconic High Speed Rail’s location in Iskandar Puteri expected to be announced by both the Singaporean and Malaysian Prime Ministers in July this year, Gerbang Nusajaya is fast taking shape with a 25-year master plan that will complement Singapore’s very own Jurong Lake District.

    Google “Iskandar Malaysia” and you will find that out of ten stories, seven of them will most likely be adverse news reporting on the special economic zone.

    A combination of the ongoing 1MDB investigation in Singapore and the oversupply issue have resulted in a perfect storm brewing that had somewhat resulted in the rather lukewarm property market that Iskandar Malaysia is currently experiencing.

  5. Transforming Johor Bahru into an international city

    JOHOR BAHRU, capital of the country’s southernmost state, has gone through a tremendous transformation and revitalisation over the past few years.

    Prior to that, the heart of the old city had fallen into decline with the opening of the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex. According to architect Johan Ropi, this was because places such as the Lumba Kuda flats, Kampung Ungku Mohsin and Bukit Cagar recreation park were demolished to make way for the complex.

    “This sucked all the population out of the city. Things got worse after the CIQ opened and everybody started bypassing the city itself. When the government offices at Bukit Timbalan were relocated to Kota Iskandar, it killed the original function of the town,” he explains.

    Johor Bahru was established in the days when towns were built to cater for the needs of the local population rather than as a tourist attraction. Originally a small fishing village, it was turned into Johor’s administrative centre known as Iskandar Puteri by Temenggong Daeng Ibrahim in 1855. There, he built modern facilities such as police stations, courthouses and government departments. It was his son, Sultan Abu Bakar, who renamed the town Johor Bahru.

    April 27, 2016 by iskandarinsider


    JOHOR BAHRU: Iskandar Malaysia Regional Development Authority (Irda) will continue to engage and reach out to the local communities residing within Iskandar Malaysia from time to time.

    Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin said this was important to ensure that the ordinary folk were aware of the progress and development taking place within the economic growth corridor.

    He said continuous efforts must be made by the Iskandar Malaysia stakeholders via their programmes and initiatives tailored for the local communities which would benefit them in the long run.

    “We have to change the perception that Iskandar Malaysia is only about big investments where locals are not benefiting from the influx of domestic and foreign investors,” Mohamed Khaled said.

    He said this following the launch of Iskandar Malaysia Open Day 2016 and the unveiling of its tenth anniversary logo at Komtar JBCC shopping complex here.

    April 21, 2016 by iskandarinsider


    JOHOR BAHRU: The Johor government plans to develop Sedenak, a small town just outside Johor Baru, into a thriving data centre.

    Property developers are predicting demand for houses and commercial space to benefit from the availability of high-paying technology employment in the area.

    “This will be a catalytic project that will definitely accelerate growth in the state, especially in south Johor,’’ Johor Real Estate and Housing Developers Association (Rehda) branch chairman Hoe Mee Ling told StarBiz.

    Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin recently announced that about 20,000ha in Sedenak would be developed into a data centre similar to Cyberjaya in Selangor.

    The state government, he said, was currently holding talks with several foreign companies on setting up their respective data centres in Johor. The data centre in Sedenak, Khaled said, would be launched by mid-year.
