Bandar MSC Cyberport, the ICT flagship of Iskandar Malaysia, is a new mixed development project to be developed on a 150-acre freehold land in Indahpura, Kulai which has been identified as the MSC Malaysia Cybercity in Johor. It is located within the area of Kulai and Senai, about 35 kilometres north-west of Johor Bahru city centre and surrounded by a number of established and on-going residential developments.

The proposed Bandar MSC Cyberport will be developed in 3 phases, starting from 2009 over a 8-year period with an estimated Gross Development Value (GDV) of USD341 Million (RM1.16 Billion).

About USD100 Million (RM324 Million) investment is expected to be injected from the Mumbai-based property developer to develop, construct and market Bandar MSC Cyberport in Kulai.

Bandar MSC Cyberport is designed to have world-class infrastructure and clustering effect that would create the enabling environment for technopreneurs to nurture and businesses to grow.

Iskandar Malaysia To Have MSC Cyberport In Kulai



JOHOR BAHARU -- MSC Cyberport Sdn Bhd will develop an MSC Cyberport, the first Malaysian Cybercity, at Indah Pura in Kulai, which will be a city under Iskandar Malaysia, Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said on Tuesday.

The co-chairman of the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA Malaysia) said the project will be a joint venture between MSC Cyberport and Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor (KPRJ), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the state government.

"Phase 1 of the project will have a gross development value (GDV) of around RM460 million and will commence by the end of this year and be completed by the end of 2011," he said before witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between IRDA Malaysia and MSC Cyberport Sdn Bhd.

The chief executive officer of MSC Cyberport, Ganesh Kumar Bangah, said Bandar MSC Cyberport will be developed over eight years with an estimated overall GDV of RM1.16 billion.

The first phase of the project on 33 acres, he said, is expected to be ready in parcels by 2010 and will be fully completed by 2011.

He also disclosed that MSC Cyberport will sign an MoU with a foreign developer next week on the development of Bandar MSC Cyberport.

The foreign firm, according to him, has wide experience in developing special IT economic zones in India and elsewhere.

On another note, Bangah said that since Johor was awarded MSC Malaysia status in August 2006, 50 companies in the state have attained MSC Malaysia status with another 100 in the pipeline to attain the status.

"These 50 companies today hire an estimated 1,500 knowledge workers both in and outside Menara MSC Cyberport. These companies serve not only local and regional but also global customers from as far as the United Kingdom to as close as Indonesia and Singapore," he added.

The occupancy of Menara MSC Cyberport today, according to him, has also increased, from a mere 30 percent occupancy in 2006 before attaining the MSC Malaysia status to about 80 to 85 percent today.

With the influx of new investments in MSC Cyberport Johor, this building is expected to be fully occupied by next year, said Bangah.
