JOHOR | Projects & Construction ‎

JOHOR


is a Malaysian state, located in the southern portion of Peninsular Malaysia. It is one of the most developed states in Malaysia. The state capital city and royal city of Johor is Johor Bahru, formerly known as Tanjung Puteri (Malay for Princess' Cape). Johor is surrounded by Pahang to the north, Malacca and Negeri Sembilan to the northwest, and the Straits of Johor to the south which separates Johor and the Republic of Singapore.
  • Iskandar Development Region
    Iskandar Development Region (IDR) (Malay: Wilayah Pembangunan Iskandar). is the new main southern development corridor in Johor, Malaysia. The IDR was established on 30 July 2006. It is named after Sultan Iskandar of Johor. It was formerly known as South Johor Economic Region.

    It is against this backdrop that in July 2005, the Government of Malaysia had tasked Khazanah to conduct a feasibility study for the development of a special economic zone in South Johor in what was then referred to as the Southern Belt Economic Zone (SBEZ).

    Physical Development Strategies
    It is targeted that developments within IDR will initially focus on the medium term in the Nusajaya-Johor Bahru-Pasir Gudang corridor. The corridor is an established area of development with two major ports, Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Pasir Gudang, and a third oleo-chemical port at Tanjung Langsat. The area also has two major links to Singapore, the Causeway and the Linkedua (Second Link). Many of the new catalyst developments are expected to be in the relatively new and greenfield area of Nusajaya. Nusajaya houses the new state administrative centre and has been identified as an area to house several targeted new growth sectors including in education, healthcare and tourism, among others.

    Flagship Zone A – Johor Bahru City Centre


    The JB City Centre’s New Financial District and the upgrading process on the Central Business District is poised to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) from all over the world. With its close proximity, good connectivity and relationship with neighbouring Singapore and Indonesia, it is obvious JB City Centre is a great choice of investment.

Flagship D covers Pasir Gudang Port, Pasir Gudang Industrial Park, Tanjung Langsat Port and Tanjung Langsat Industrial Complex.


    Flagship E: Senai - Skudai
    Current key economic activities in Flagship E are airport services, engineering, electrical and electronics (E&E) and education. Going forward, Flagship E would also be the hub for agro and food processing, ICT and retail tourism. With more than 1,000 acres of available land bank within the vicinity of Senai Airport, investors will have the advantage of setting up large-scale commercial and airport-related enterprises at attractive low rates. Other strategic land banks owned by developers also offer various investment opportunities.


    A Gateway to the south region
    Senai International Airport :
    Senai International Airport formally known as Sultan Ismail International Airport, is an airport located in the town of Senai, near Johor Bahru, Malaysia.


    Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ Complex ) :
    The GSB Project involves the relocation of the existing Customs, Immigration and Quarantine ("CIQ") facilities to the present Johor Bahru railway station at Bukit Chagar and to replace part of the Causeway with a road bridge and a rail bridge, including the construction of other related infrastructure and amenities on a fast-track basis. GERBANG has been appointed by the Government of Malaysia (the "Government") as the Design & Build contractor for the GSB Project.

    The Johor Causeway (the "Causeway"), built in 1920 and officially opened in 1924 is frequently congested and no longer adequate in catering to the increasing level of traffic between Malaysia and Singapore. The Causeway suffers from traffic congestion during peak hours, public holidays and festivals. The main focus of the road network in Johor Bahru is in the Johor Bahru Central Business District ("Johor Bahru CBD"), which has evolved around the Causeway linking to Singapore. Thus, the traffic pattern in Johor Bahru CBD is very much connected to what happens at the Causeway.

Aussies to develop RM1.7bil waterfront project in Johor
By DESIREE TRESA GASPER Wednesday May 19, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...974&sec=nation

JOHOR BARU: The state Go vernment is confident of more foreign development following the recent entry of an Australian developer who is investing RM1.7bil in the state’s integrated waterfront development project.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said this was a positive sign as it was the first time the Australian developer, Walker Cor poration, was entering the local property market.

“The investment of RM1.7bil by the corporation proves the strong confidence these developers have in our local property market,” he said during the official launch of the Senibong Cove waterfront development project in Permas Jaya here recently.

He said that with the completion of the project, other developers would also flock to the state.

Abdul Ghani added that the corporation was also looking at other future projects in the state but was currently focused on the Senibong Cove project, scheduled to be completed in 2012.

“These houses are meant for the high-end market and it is a positive sign that many house buyers are locals,” he said, adding that the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) would also help open up the “eastern corridor” in the state.

Walker Corporation executive chairman Lang Walker, who was at the opening, said: “While a lot of Malaysian investors are flocking to Australia, we see a lot of potential in the state and that is the main reason why we have decided to start this project here.”

He also added that the completion of the EDL and the recovering economy made it the perfect time for housing developers to start projects locally.

Senibong Cove is an integrated waterfront development project featuring cluster houses, semi-detached houses, bungalows, apartments, luxurious apartments and terrace houses, with prices ranging from RM290,000 to RM1.8mil each.

Located at the Lunchoo River on the Straits of Johor, it will be the first waterfront integrated housing development project in the state.

Kempas to be site of railway's southern hub
2010/07/10 By Ben Tan

WITH the impending relocation of the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) railway station from Woodlands, Singapore, to Malaysia, the state government has allocated 80.9ha in Kempas for the purpose.

Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the plan was based on the 1990 Points of Agreement between Malaysia and Singapore. Singapore would develop a high-speed mass rail transit (MRT) hub in Woodlands.

"We will have to move the KTMB train station in Woodlands to Kempas for that purpose," he said in reply to questions from Tan Cher Puk (BN-Johor Jaya), Jaafar Hashim (BN-Senggarang) and Lau Chin Hoon (BN-Pemanis).

Ghani said with KTMB's move to Kempas in place, both countries could focus on upgrading their transportation systems, culminating in Singapore's MRT system being connected with Iskandar Malaysia's planned vast rapid transit (VRT).

"Singapore's underground MRT system in Woodlands will be connected with our VRT system in Johor Baru."

He said the VRT system would initially have three routes.

This will pave the way for the development of the KTMB land in Kempas into a southern rail hub similar to KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur.

Ghani said the KTMB railway issue was a priority as it had been pending for the past 20 years and needed a "win-win" settlement for both parties.

To a question by Datuk Osman Sapian (BN-Kempas) with regard to the end of Singapore's water supply agreement and a review of the current rate of 50 sen per 1,000 litres, Ghani said the republic would return the Skudai water treatment plant to Malaysia for free.

"There is also an additional 60-year water supply agreement with Singapore that will end in 2061. Several years ago, we had discussed about the review of water rates for the 60-year agreement, but there was no firm decision on it."

He said contentious issues with Singapore, such as water supply and a new bridge to replace the Causeway, would have to be discussed separately.

Dijaya to launch Danga Bay project by Dec
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2010/08/16

DIJAYA Corp Bhd (5401) will launch phase one of Tropicana City@ Danga Bay, its RM3.8 billion integrated waterfront flagship project in Johor by December this year, its chief said.

Phase one will feature some 700 units of upper middle serviced apartments in three blocks, worth RM600 million or more than RM600 per sq ft each, managing director Datuk Tong Kien Onn said.

"We hope to start construction by December and realise the units block by block. Piling works have been completed. We are confident of the project," Tong said in an interview with Business Times in Kuala Lumpur recently.

Dijaya is developing 14.8ha of prime waterfront land at Danga Bay in Johor Baru over the next 10-12 years with Iskandar Water Front Sdn Bhd (IWSB).
Goldhill Quest Sdn Bhd - a 60:40 joint-venture between Nagasari Cerdas Sdn Bhd (a Dijaya unit), and Global Corp Development Bhd (owned by IWSB) - bought the land from Danga Bay Sdn Bhd for RM308 million or RM190 per sq ft.

It is one of the biggest private land deals since the inception of Iskandar Malaysia in 2006, where it is located.

Goldhill plans to build a retail street mall, office towers and residences, SoHo (small office/home office) and a four and five-star hotel.

"We are still working out the components. The project will be similar to the Mid Valley development. But our mall will be different as it will focus on food and entertainment," Tong said.

Tong said Dijaya is targeting homeowners, expatriates and investors from Asia Pacific and Europe.

He said there will be spillover from Singapore with the opening of Resorts World Sentosa and The Marina Sands resort, where each have said they will employ more than 35,000 people when the projects are fully completed.

"We expect many of the staff to be relocated to Johor. Singapore expects 10 million additional tourists a year and we hope to ride on that with the opening of a four- or five-star hotel within our development.

"We may look at international operators like Starwood or Ritz Carlton Group to run the hotel. Nothing is on the cards yet as the hotel will be developed at a later stage," Tong said.

Dijaya, known for its flagship Tropicana Golf and Country Resort development in Petaling Jaya, has RM290 million cash in hand which it will partly use to start the development, Tong said.

"We will look at bank loans but we are expecting the project to be self-financing later," he said.
