ISKANDAR PUTERI: A project featuring waterfront villas in a Caribbean tropical setting, with private berth (dock) and swimming pool to boot, has taken property development sector in the country up a notch.
Spanning 44.92ha, the Emerald Bay project comprises freehold bungalows, semi-detached and courtyard homes as well as medium-rise condominiums, ideally located along the shore of the Johor Straits.
The first-of-its-kind project in the country is developed by Haute Property Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between BRDB Developments Sdn Bhd and UEM Sunrise Bhd.
Haute Property chief executive officer Teh Ku Yong said the project was intricately planned to deliver a premium waterfront living in a nature-inspired sanctuary surrounded by open space, water, sea breeze and lush tropical green landscaping.

The landscaped lawns and flowering shrubs of Country Garden Holdings Co.’s huge property showroom in southern Malaysia end abruptly at a small wire fence. Beyond, a desert of dirt stretches into the distance, filled with cranes and piling towers that the Chinese developer is using to build a $100 billion city in the sea.
While Chinese home buyers have sent prices soaring from Vancouver to Sydney, in this corner of Southeast Asia it’s China’s developers that are swamping the market, pushing prices lower with a glut of hundreds of thousands of new homes. They’re betting that the city of Johor Bahru, bordering Singapore, will eventually become the next Shenzhen.
“These Chinese players build by the thousands at one go, and they scare the hell out of everybody,” said Siva Shanker, head of investments at Axis-REIT Managers Bhd. and a former president of the Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents. “God only knows who is going to buy all these units, and when it’s completed, the bigger question is, who is going to stay in them?”
