A Coronade Properties spokesman said the company has "robust financials" and is optimistic about sales, despite the perception of oversupply in Johor. The firm is so bullish that it is building the residential tower even before selling any unit - mainly given its prime location in the heart of the city centre.

The spokesman added that even with Iskandar Puteri's growth, "there is no issue with having two city centres". "Logically, when you have linkages to cities, these gateway cities tend to do well... the traditional city centre has been around for a long time, and it is opportune for it to be revitalised," he said.

While one developer is building an international business district, another wants to build Johor's new central business district.
Coronade's spokesman said no issue... But a spokesman from skyscrapercity said Iskandar Puteri is a failure

A spokesman from skyscrapercity also said that RAPID project should be on west side of Johor... By doing that, Iskandar's Flagship will be a big mess... Just for info, oil storage in Johor mostly concentrated in Flagship D (eastern gate development) e.g Pasir Gudang & Tanjung Langsat area... We have Tanjung Langsat Port that purposely built for receiving oil & stored in Pasir Gudang... Now, why RAPID is in east side...? Simple... seamless connection with the existing oil storage in Pasir Gudang... Less cost of future piping mainly for fluid flows... If west side piping to east side... That will be a major catastrophe crossing the pipe into west to east... Increase cost & so on... Public safety will be effected in case of leaking & other factors... RAPID is in perfect location... Nothing else...

Robotic city to be economic game changer
Friday, 26 May 2017

JOHOR BARU: The RM15bil worth of investment to develop a Robotic Future City within the northern region of Iskandar Malaysia here will be a game changer.

State Tourism, Domestic Trade and Consumerism Committee chairman Datuk Tee Siew Kiong said the latest investment will change the landscape and spur Johor’s economy even further.

Tee said this after a dialogue session with the Johor Baru Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JBCCI) at Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim here.

He added that the Robotic Future City would also help create thousands of jobs for Johoreans and business opportunities for local industry players.

“It will make Johor a hub for robotic development,” said Tee.

It was recently reported that Malaysia would be a big beneficiary of China's Belt and Road initiative with nine memoranda of understanding and agreements, including several new deals totalling more than US$7.22bil (RM31.26bil), signed between companies from the two countries in Beijing.

Among the agreements is the setting up of a Robotic Future City by Johor Corporation, the state government's investment arm, and its Chinese partner Siasun Robotic Investment.

The US$3.45bil (RM15bil) project, which is also the largest business-to-business agreement made during the event, is scheduled to kick off by the end of this year on 404ha of land.

Siasun is the largest robotic base in China and a listed enterprise under the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS).

SUNGAI SEGGET
From Datuk Roger Tan

Quote:
Visited the newly-completed RM120mil Sungai Segget Centralised Sewerage Treatment Plant (CSTP) this morning. Was given a briefing by the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) Projects and Programme Management Office head Mohd Zam Mustaman and consulting engineers from Muda Consult Sdn Bhd.



The purpose of this visit is to see for ourselves the status of the project and its compliance with licensing application requirements stipulated under Water Services Industry Act, 2006.

It is hoped that this CSTP will finally help rejuvenate Sungai Segget, once a busy waterway in the early 1800s, but now Malaysia’s second most polluted river. The CSTP is Malaysia’s first multi-storey or vertical sewerage treatment plant. It can process more than 33,000 cubic metres of untreated water or equivalent to 14 Olympic-size swimming pools per day. According to Mohd Zam, the 11-storey treatment plant, constructed under the Sungai Segget Transformation Project, can treat sewage from 150,000 residents living along the 3.6km-long river or around the city centre.

Sungai Segget Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant:








This CSTP receives surface rain water as well as domestic sewage and treat the sewage and polluted water from the various drains using the concept of “Combined Sewer” flowing in from Ulu Ayer Molek, Bukit Saujana, Wadi Hana, Wadi Hassan and Bukit Ungku Aziz. The CSTP will also receive and treat sewage from The Astaka Condominium upon its completion.






It will take between six months and a year for the CSTP to improve the quality of water in Sungai Segget and the plant will be handed over to MBJB after a period of two years.

Treated sewage of Class A standard!:




The treated sewage of Class A released into Sungai Segget:




Having said that, public education and enforcement are pivotal to the successful rehabilitation and rejuvenation of Sungai Segget which remains the soul of Johor Bahru. I am told that the trash trap captures trash weighing about 7 tonnes every day! As shown in one picture, even a motor-cycle has ended up in the river!






When we visited the open part of Sungai Segget, there is no doubt that the quality of the water still leaves much to be desired simply because every drain in the City of Johor Bahru still leads to Sungai Segget. The water surface appears still to be covered with grease and sludge released from the various business outlets and premises along the river. Ironically, the office of MBJB Enforcement is just situated metres away!





Unless we Malaysians, especially Johoreans, start changing our attitudes towards protecting and loving our water resources, this soul of Johor Bahru may never be cleansed despite whatever efforts which may have been put in by the Government!


View from CSTP:





Clean up Segget River is not that easy. People only see the progress at Wong Ah Fook but not this CSTP
