Sungai Segget clean-up to beautify city
Story and photos By ZAZALI MUSA

JOHOR BARU: Work on the first phase of the Johor Baru City Centre transformation plan (JBCCTP) will start in the middle of this year with the tearing down of the culverts that covered Sungai Segget along Jalan Wong Ah Fook.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the Federal Government had allocated RM200mil for the projects, which include the river clean-up, as part of the RM1.8bil allocation under the JBCCTP.

‘The Sungai Segget cleaning up project would involve three parts - improving the sewerage system, flood mitigation and beautification of the river stretch and its surrounding areas.”

The river will flow through:The currently covered stretch of Sungai Segget which flows along Jalan Wong Ah Fook in downtown Johor Baru will be opened up under the RM200mil beautification project of the river.

He said the authorities had already selected the two designs for the Sungai Segget river project.

He said tenders would also be called two months from now for the sewerage improvement system.

Abdul Ghani said this at the groundbreaking ceremony of a new RM9mil Jalan Kolam Ayer Mosque – the first eco-friendly mosque in Johor which uses solar power to power the building and rainwater for ablations.

Sungai Segget, is one of the dirtiest rivers in the country, which flows along Jalan Wong Ah Fook in the Johor Baru city downtown area. Several years ago, the Government spent RM6mil to cover the river with culverts and built pedestrian walkway on it.

Abdul Ghani said the beautification of Sungai Segget would start from a ramp near Hotel Tropical Inn, which would be converted into an iconic open space up to Jalan Tun Seri Lanang.

“The whole 2km stretch will be known as JB Wave and Jalan Wong Ah Fook will be turned into a non-vehicle zone as we want pedestrians and visitors to enjoy the new Sungai Segget,’’ he said

He said property owners within the Johor Baru city centre where the transformation plan would take place had given their fully cooperation as they knew the benefits the project would bring to the area.

The JBCCTP covers 485.62ha area within the Johor Baru city central area including Bukit Timbalan, the former sites of the Lumba Kuda and Bukit Chagar low-cost flats, Bukit Chagar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex and Tanjung Puteri Lorry Customs Complex.

Under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP), the Government has allocated RM1.8bil to rehabilitate and transform Johor Baru city into a vibrant city in line with its status as one of the five flagship development zones in Iskandar Malaysia.

The country’s first economic growth corridor launched on Nov 4, 2006, spanning 2,217 sq km in the southernmost part of Johor divided into five zones – the other four zones are Nusajaya, Eastern Gate Development, Western Gate Development and Senai-Kulai.


THE NAME JB WAVE... sound yucky right..
Any update?

Johor Cultural Park
The metaphor of the lily pond is used in our design of the Johor Cultural Park to imply a malleable environment, in which the people of Johor regardless of their different cultures and religion, are able to identify as a cultural icon for all.

Multiple roof canopies with skylight form a sheath sheltering pods containing main programs.

A wave-form perimeter wall of shimmering glass forms a transparent enclosure which is punctuated to draw visitors into this seamless environment. Once inside, visitors encounter these pods housing the main theatre, concert hall, theatre studios and a craft centre.

Senai-Wenzhou Trade Centre To Turn Iskandar Malaysia Into Trade Hub

Quote:
The RM200 million Senai-Wenzhou Trade Centre, to be sited adjacent to the Sultan Ismail International Airport in Senai, about 40km from this bustling city, is expected to transform Iskandar Malaysia into a trade and logistics hub in the Asia-Pacific region.

Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the huge investment in the trade centre mirrored strong foreign investor confidence, particularly from China, to expand their business operations in Malaysia.

"The trade centre will not only open up business prospects among service providers and local entrepreneurs but also serve as a launch pad to expand their businesses to Asean member countries, China and India," he said when speaking at the simultaneous launch of the trade centre's construction work and a book entitled "Echoes Of Life" in Sungai Pulai, near here.

Earlier, Senai-Wenzhou Trade Development Pte Ltd chairman Vincent Tan said construction work would start in April on a eight-hectare site.

The core business of the 80,000 sq metre trade centre, slated for completion in two to three years, would be wholesaling of unique products such as leather shoes and jackets from Wenzhou City, south-east of Zhejiang District in China.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas chairman Datuk Mohd Sidik Shaik Osman said the substantial investment was expected to generate RM10 billion worth of spin-offs in 25 years including providing jobs for locals.

On another matter, Ghani said Malaysia and Singapore would jointly promote the Ramsar wetland site in Johor and Sungai Buloh Wetland Reserves in the republic as new eco-tourism attractions.

The collaborative effort was the first initiative under the Ministerial Level Committee for Iskandar Malaysia, he said, adding that a foreign consultant has been appointed to conduct studies on wetland preservation, product promotion and visitors' target.

On the "Echoes of Life" Sungai Pulai book, Ghani said it contained valuable information towards enlightening the people on the richness of the priceless natural environment.

The book, jointly published by the Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) Johor branch, is available at MPH bookstores.

A limited edition of only 1,500 copies are available at RM299 a copy.

Johor MNS president Associate Prof Dr Maketab Mohamed was present at the book launch.

Anyone knows whether is there any updates on this?

Grand Iskandar taking shape
Tuesday July 19, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=495


Spectacular project : Abdul Ghani (right) looking at a model of the waterfront
development during the Iskandar Malaysia Information Day recently. Looking
on are Khazanah Nasional managing director Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar (second
from right) and Kota Selat Tebrau chief executive officer Datuk Lim Kang Hoo
(second from left) .


NUSAJAYA: There is a sense of excitement in Iskandar Malaysia as key projects in this mammoth economic corridor take shape.

One of this year's highlights will be the opening of the Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) in Kulai-jaya with Prime Minsiter Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak slated to attend the opening on Nov 11.

Shoppers will be able to buy branded items at factory discounts of 25% and above for famous brands including Gucci, Prada, Coach, Ferragamo, Ralph Lauren, Esprit and Calvin Klein.

(The JPO is a 50:50 joint venture between Genting Group and United States based Simon Property Group).

Once completed, the gross built-up area of the JPO will be approximately 330,000 sq ft and is expected to bring in four million visitors in its first year of operations.

Besides the JPO, a number of key road infrastructure works have been completed in this vast development which is three times the size of Singapore.

Since the inception of Iskandar Malaysia in 2006, parts of the 2,217 sq km landscape which was once planted with rubber and oil palm is slowly changing with the opening of hospitals, universities, international schools, hotels, and logistics and manufacturing hubs.

Some of the eight road projects have in fact been completed ahead of schedule, namely Jalan Yahya Awal Jalan Lingkaran Dalam Interchange and the Ulu Tiram Interchange.

As for some of the development projects in Nusajaya, the Britain-based Newcastle Uni-versity Medicine Malaysia has been completed while construction of Marlborough College Iskandar is under way.

The construction of Iskandar's Legoland Malaysia theme park, also in Nusajaya, is progressing well and is scheduled to open next year.

Legoland will offer 40 interactive shows and rides along with 15,000 Lego models, including those of famous buildings. It will be the first of three planned theme parks in Iskandar Malaysia.

Two lead players involved in the planning, implementation and funding of the project are Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) and the Khazanah Nasional-driven Iskandar Investment Bhd.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Ghani Othman, who is also co-chairman of IRDA, has been hands-on since the inception to ensure the smooth implementation of the projects by having briefings at his office in Nusajaya and at IRDA's headquarters in Danga Bay.

Ghani has been aggressively promoting Iskandar during trips abroad.

These efforts have been successful as to date, RM73.24bil of investment deals have been clinched including 41% from abroad.

“I am happy with the progress of the projects taking shape in Iskandar Malaysia.

“Some of the road projects are actually ahead of schedule,” Ghani said.

Ghani is also known to question officials whenever it comes to projects that seem to be lagging behind, including the Senai flyover built under the supervision of the Public Works Department.

He has earned a reputation for not depending on official briefings on projects and has never hesitated to visit project sites to learn first-hand about delays or the projects' pro-gress.

Singaporean interest and participation in Iskandar is also expected to be further boosted through the settling of some of the thorny issues in the Points of Agreement between Malaysia and the island republic.

“It is just a matter of time before Singa-porean companies start investing in Iskandar in a huge way due to the warming bilateral relations between both countries,” a diplomat said.

IRDA has kept the public informed of the various projects through its Open Day events, including exhibitions.

It has welcomed public feedback and suggestions, and is also engaging the Facebook generation through its Facebook page, “Friends of Iskandar Malaysia”.

Woodbury Common comes to Kulai on 11-11-11
By NELSON BENJAMIN Tuesday July 19, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=491

JOHOR BARU: Shopping for branded products will be the attraction for visitors to Kulai after the Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) opens its doors on the auspicious date of Nov 11 or 11.11.11.

Designer brands like Burberry, Coach, Polo, Ralph Lauren, Prada, Armani, Canali, Ferragamo, Tod's, Zegna, Nike and Puma will be featured in the RM149mil outlet.

The outlet will be located on an 18ha site and will sell the products, which will be a season old, at 25% to 60% cheaper than the malls.

The project is a 50-50 joint venture between Genting's 54.6% owned subsidiary Genting Plantations Bhd and Premium Outlets, a division of US-based Simon Property Group.

The outlet is about 80% complete and is based on Simon's flagship Premium Outlet “Woodbury Common” just outside New York. There are 52 such outlets in the United States, Mexico, Japan and South Korea while the JPO would be the first in South-East Asia.

A purpose-built flyover is being completed on the Second Link to ensure a smooth connection from Singapore and the North-South Expressway.

Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the project would significantly increase the number of visitors to the state both from other states and from Singapore.

“The JPO construction is on schedule and it will open in the third quarter of the year as scheduled,” Ghani said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is scheduled to open the JPO and has indicated that it should be done on Nov 11 because of the auspicious date.

JPO director Datuk Justin Leong said the company planned to bus in visitors from all over Malaysia and Singapore, and use the Senai airport to bring in regional tourists from countries like Indonesia and Thailand.

“This is an exciting development for Johor and Malaysia as it will be a key driver for retail tourism.

This will also feature Iskandar Malaysia on the map,” he said.
