JB Komtar upgrade
By BEH YUEN HUI TheStar

JOHOR BARU: The two-storey shopping bazaar of Tun Abdul Razak Complex (Komtar) in Jalan Wong Ah Fook here will be closed for renovations.

Works to upgrade and refurbish the 28-year-old complex will take two years.

Over 100 tenants of Komtar have been given notice to move out of the bazaar by today.

However, its adjacent 26-storey office tower is not affected by the project.

Kamaruzzaman Abu Kassim, chief operating officer of Johor Corporation that owns Komtar, said the building would have a new image when it reopens in 2009.

He said the project, estimated to cost RM55mil, was in line with the rapid growth of the city as well as the Iskandar Development Region.

Being the first retail complex to open in the downtown area, Komtar was a place that catered to all levels of Johoreans and Singaporeans.

However, it has slowly lost its shine with the opening of other shopping malls.

Kamaruzzaman said the new bazaar would provide a bigger retail space of 15,280 sq m, compared to the current 12,056 sq m.

“The variety of outlets will be improved to attract more shoppers,” he said.

Kamaruzzaman said a sky-bridge would connect Komtar JB with the new Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex in Bukit Chagar for the convenience of travellers.

He said the bazaar would be equipped with modern surveillance devices such as CCTVs and 24-hour security.

What do you expect? KOMTAR is owned by JCorp, or previously known as JSEDC. It is a Johor Government company, a by-product of NEP or affirmative program. I wouldn't expect this company to be efficient when it comes to upgrading KOMTAR JB. This is such a shame when a state corporation is supposed to shine at this time in order to boost trust and confidence from foreigners keen on investing in the Iskandar project.
