Who would want to stay so near to many ports around there (Tuas and PTP) with Jurong Industrial Area so nearby?

The Johor government is literally killing the golden goose.

Crazy.....PTP needs large enough sea space to grow & deep water. Reclaiming by pouring tones of sands into the sea will shallow the place. Moreover they want to create man-made beach....my goodness!

The johor sultan only see short term gain. killing the golden goose indeed. Greedy deep.

Johor reclamation works stopped



24 June 2014


JOHOR BARU: The Department of Environment has issued a temporary stop-work order against all coastal land reclamation works for the development of the massive Forest City off Tanjung Kupang here pending a detailed study.


State Health and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Ayub Rahmat said any negotiation on lifting the suspension would be between the department and the project’s jointdevelopers, China’s Country Garden Holdings Co Ltd and state-owned Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor.


“The order came about a week ago and all land reclamation work in the area have been suspended pending further studies on the environmental effects of the project,” hetold the New Straits Times yesterday.


The reclamation works for the proposed 49-hectare Forest City tourist hub project began in early March and was expected to be completed by year’s end.


The project hit a snag after the Singaporean government raised concerns over the state’s coastal land reclamation projects, citing that it might cause trans-boundary issues.


It also sent several diplomatic notes and a formal request to the Federal Government for more information on the state’s coastal projects, specifically in the Straits of Johor.

In a statement, its Foreign Affairs Ministry had said there were international obligations for both countries to work closely on such matters.


Environmental activists have also voiced their worries on Johor’s shoreline reclamation works.


Ayub said the state government would monitor the progress of discussions between developers and the Department of Environment.


“We will wait for the department to complete their studies on the project, after which we will also ensure that all guidelines are met.”


On the concerns raised by the Singaporean government, Ayub said the state government valued the bilateral ties with its neighbour.


“We will look into the issue of other trans-boundary effects because of the land reclamation works.”


Ayub clarified that there was a preliminary Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report for the proposed Forest City project.


“Normally, shoreline reclamation projects below 50ha in size, such as the proposed Forest City project, does not need a EIA report under the Environmental Quality (prescribed activities) (Environmental Impact Assessment) Order 1987.


“However, as the project will have a 80-room hotel, increasing the area’s density, a preliminary EIA report was conducted and its findings submitted to the relevant authorities.”


Country Garden Holdings, which has its international office in Johor Baru, did not reply to queries.

Yesterday, the New Straits Times reported that the Johor government confirmed it had received a request by Putrajaya to furnish details on land reclamation projects in the state.

Typical malaysian government... I don't mind they keep flip-flopping on this project to test the developer patience which in the end they might give up!

Their greed might even cause the Sg government to rethink on assisting in developing Iskandar.

I think the duty free city is still being on the cards here. Huge development with an amazing amount of condominium units. It's mind boggling.

If you the video posted here some time ago, it has an internal LRT.

Johor reclamation project 'to create oil storage hub

Quote:
ONE of the two massive reclamation projects coming up in the Johor Strait will be turned into an oil storage hub to capture spill-over oil and gas business from Singapore, an official with the company involved in the works said yesterday.
The project involving Benalec Holdings will raise a 1,410ha man-made island near Jurong Island, the firm's chief operating officer Bernard Boey told The Straits Times.
The reclamation is expected to begin before the end of the year.
The project, located off Johor's Tanjung Piai coast, is roughly twice the size of Ang Mo Kio.

2014/07/22

JOHOR BAHRU: Pembangunan bandar metropolis, Forest City bernilai kira-kira RM600 bilion di Tanjung Kupang, di sini, akan tetap diteruskan bagi merancakkan lagi ekonomi Johor terutama dalam menyediakan peluang pekerjaan.

Naib Pengerusi Eksekutif Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor (KPRJ), Datuk Md Othman Yusof, berkata sehingga kini projek berkenaan mematuhi segala peraturan dan garis panduan ditetapkan Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS) dan tidak menjejaskan ekosistem di kawasan berkenaan.

Katanya, projek berkenaan juga tidak menjejaskan hak dan kepentingan Malaysia dan Singapura.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media di sini, sebentar tadi.

RM600 billion Forest City to bring
positive impact to locals


BY CHUAH BEE KIM - 22 JULY 2014 @ 12:36 PM

JOHOR BARU: The RM600 billion Forest City development will bring more positive impact than negative ones to the people of Johor.

Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor (KPRJ) executive vice chairman Datuk Md Othman Yusof told a press conference here today that the development will bring direct and indirect returns to the state government which will then channel it to the local folk.

Md Othman said the taxes paid by those who occupy the man-made island will be used to build low-cost houses in suitable areas in Johor.

He said the project will also not affect the sea ports, namely, Port of Tanjung Pelepas but complement it.

Property values in the surrounding areas like Gelang Patah will also increase.

However, the stopwork order on reclamation works after several issues were raised had not only caused the developer Country Garden Property View to suffer financial loss, it may also shake the investors' confidence.


RM600 billion... No kidding...

Yup... why need to reclaim land when jb has s ooooooo much unused land???

Instead of reclaiming new land why don't value add the existing lands and beautify the old taman? ?

Who does the land sales enrich? Are they ploughing back any money to spruce up JB town? As much as I think Nusajaya is an outstanding greenfield development, I wish more time and money is spent on redeveloping JB.
