Phase 2C - 5* hotel still under planning, Branded service residenses (like 4 seasons KL) still under discussion.
No MRT / LRT for now, instead developer side says BRT likely will be on the Tebrau road where the old shophouses currently stands.
Just concerned about the traffic in and out of that place
Love big city living. Love the jam.
The new elevated flyover will link to tebrau Road and Tun Abdul Razak Road to the forthcoming Coronation square and Abdullah Ibrahim Road.
JOHOR BARU: The Government should give special incentives and tax breaks to spur development of the Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD).
Johor Corp (JCorp) president and chief executive officer Datuk Kamaruzzaman Abu Kassim said the incentives should be something “special” for IIBD.
“Presently, there are incentives given to investors in Iskandar Malaysia or even those coming into the Multimedia Super Corridor.
“We need something different for IIBD and we will put forward this proposal to the Government for consideration, as this will lure people to invest in IIBD,” he said.
He was speaking at the launch of the IIBD brand, which introduced the Spirit of Enterprise brand promise and the 4 HOME lenses – heritage, opportunity, mobility and eco-sustainability.
Asked about the development in IIBD, he said there was interest from at least four investors from China and South Korea to set up a medical hub here.
“Bank Rakyat has also purchased an entire block and this is good for the banking sector,” he said.
Kamaruzzaman said the Federal Government had also allocated RM116mil for two infrastructure projects, including a flyover into Coronation Square and a covered pedestrian walkway to the Johor Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex.
He added that the projects would help disperse and ease traffic congestion in the city.
“The allocation is from the Public Private Partnership Unit,” he said, thanking the Federal Government for its support for the IIBD. The event was graced and launched by Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar. Also present was his royal consort Permaisuri of Johor Raja Zarith Sofia Binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah.

One Bukit Senyum development; The new heartbeat of Johor Baru
THE iconic One Bukit Senyum development will transform the skyline of Johor Baru, and will be the new central business district and administrative centre when it is completed in 2023.
Developer Astaka Holdings Ltd came up with the project after seeing the potential of Johor Baru and setting out a vision to transform the state capital.
Leveraging on the group’s track record and decades of experience, Astaka Holdings secured a piece of prime land in the heart of the city, now home to its flagship One Bukit Senyum.
Occupying 4.8ha of freehold land with a gross floor area of 6.3 million sq ft, One Bukit Senyum was conceptualised by renowned architecture giant Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the designers of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.
One Bukit Senyum, which will have a gross development value of RM5.4 billion, will be home to award-winning The Astaka, which comprises two residential blocks with 438 units. The units have built-up areas of between 2,207 and 5,554 sq feet. They also come with a private lift lobby.
“Our vision is to create an iconic and distinct development that transforms the skyline of Johor Baru. The Astaka will not only become a landmark in Johor but also set new standards for luxurious developments in Malaysia upon its completion later this year.
“Since the launch of The Astaka, we have received many accolades and won over discerning buyers,” said Astaka Holdings executive director and chief executive officer Datuk Zamani Kasim.
Among the awards were “Best Condo Development (Malaysia)” by Southeast Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) 2015 and “Best Luxury High Rise Development” by iProperty.com People’s Choice Awards Malaysia.
The Astaka, which means royal pavilion, offers ultra-luxurious residences with stunning vistas of the Johor skyline and Singapore horizon.
At 65 and 70 storeys high, the residential towers are the tallest in Southeast Asia. The towers will feature a full-curtain wall, the first for a residential tower in Malaysia, round-the-clock security, bespoke concierge services and the highest sky garden in the country.
The Astaka will have four units per floor, luxurious ceiling heights of 3.6m, marble flooring for the living and dining areas, timber strip flooring for the bedrooms and green building index certification.
Among the facilities are two swimming pools, two sky lounges, a gymnasium and a dedicated tunnel connecting to the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex, which is a minute’s drive away.
The One Bukit Senyum development will also include a five-star hotel, branded residences, serviced apartments, a shopping mall, an office tower and the new headquarters of Johor Baru City Council, Menara MBJB.
With the development sitting on the transportation node of southern Malaysia, One Bukit Senyum is likely to be preferred by major corporations and discerning residents. It is envisaged to be the heartbeat of a modern metropolis.
