Malaysia's Forest City to hand over more than 20,000 residential units this year as it unveils new golf course. Located within the Iskandar Malaysia special economic zone (SEC) in southern Johor, Forest City comprises four man-made islands spanning 30 square kilometres.Sep 9, 2019
The Malaysian state of Johor is at the southernmost end of the Malay Peninsula, where the Straits of Johor form the border between Malaysia and Singapore. Johor Bahru is the capital of the state, and it’s where the first and busiest border crossing to Singapore is.
For years JB languished in the shadow of its prosperous neighbour, and it had a seedy bordertown reputation. Now it’s waking up to its geographical potential as being a cheaper alternative to Singapore, and new developments are transforming the city and surrounds.
The southern portion of the state has been designated as a special economic region known as Iskandar Malaysia. This was formerly known as Iskandar Development Region (IDR) and South Johor Economic Region (SJER), and the region has been likened to Shenzhen.
This post features various current and proposed buildings, new cities, and transport projects in Johor Bahru and around Iskandar Malaysia. Feel free to send more suggestions and I will add them.
The biggest (and most controversial) development in all of Johor is the Forest City project. Forest City consists of four man-made islands west of Johor Bahru, near the Singapore Second Link. It’s expected to eventually be home to 700,000 people.
Forest City covers 3,425 acres, and the islands feature different zones:
– High Tech Industrial Zone – Central Business District and Tourism Zone
– Financial and Economic Districts – Conference and Forum Zone
The US$100 billion project has been controversial due to the amount of foreigners buying property, with “planeloads of Chinese buyers” flying in to buy. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir said that Malaysia will not allow foreigners to buy residential units, which threw doubt and confusion onto the development. One of the main concerns was that investors were buying residential visas to live in Malaysia, which is not the case.
To date, investments into Forest City, a project comprising four man-made islands total more than 17 billion ringgit (US$4 billion).

Starting in the centre of Johor Bahru is the Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD). The IIBD covers the area between JB Sentral Station and the botanical gardens, so it’s basically the entire inner city core.
I visited in September 2018 and you could see that central JB was in the midst of transformation. There are new malls and apartment towers, and tired old concrete blocks were being knocked down to make way for more projects.
The centrepiece of the proposed business district will be Coronation Square, which will include an office tower, serviced apartments, a hotel, medical suite, and a podium-level mall. The main tower is planned to be 370 metres tall.
Driving across the Causeway Bridge from Singapore the first thing you’ll see is R&F Princess Cove. This development features a dense cluster of apartment blocks that overlooks the Strait, and a separate office tower and hotel will flank the bridge as a gateway to the city.
Phase one of The Astaka has been completed and the two 70 and 65 floor towers have become landmarks of the city. At 278.8 metres, it became the tallest residential tower in Southeast Asia.
Phase 2 will include the new headquarters of the Johor Bahru City Council, serviced apartments, a five-star hotel, and a shopping mall.

This development area is where the Sungai River meets the Johore Strait.
There are several developments happening along the waterfront that would turn this into another business district within JB.

OUR FIRST STATE-OF-THE-ART DEVELOPMENT, INTERNATIONAL PORT CITY, SOLD OUT IN RECORD TIME
The $150 Million, mega Gwadar port development covers 3.6 million square feet and offers a mixed-use, gated development at the heart of Gwadar to cater for locals, expats and Chinese professionals expected to be working there in the future. This new development provides everything needed to live, work and play within a secure, gated community and will have Gwadar’s first Chinese Temple.
We can guarantee first class apartments and houses as we are working with leading Chinese construction company
Top International Engineering Corporation (TIEC) on our first project in Gwadar.
With sustainability at its heart, International Port City will have a dedicated water desalination plant, an eco-zone recycling centre and public amenities accounting for over 50% of the total development. It will set the benchmark for sustainable development in Gwadar.
Gwadar is seen as an exciting investment opportunity due to the $62 Billion investment from China in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor and has been tipped to be the ‘new Dubai’. It has also been quoted as “the project of the century for Pakistan” by the Chinese President.
