JOHOR BARU (Dec 7): Nusajaya has passed the tipping point on course to become the largest fully integrated urban development hub in Southeast Asia (SEA), its master developer UEM Land Bhd said today (Friday).
Managing director Datuk Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim said with the completion of its first phase, which started six years ago, Nusajaya's vision is truly taking shape.
"Nusajaya is gathering an irresistable momentum. The second phase will drive Nusajaya towards its full potential.
"On completion, Nusajaya is expected to become a hub for government services, tourism, leisure, education, healthcare, wellness, creativity, business, industry, commerce, finance, property and infrastructure.
"By the time it reaches maturity in 2025, Nusajaya is expected to support a population of 500,000," he told a press conference today.
Signature developments in Nusajaya include Puteri Harbour, Southern Industrial and Logistics Clusters (SiLCs), Nusajaya Residences, Afiat Healthpark, EduCity, Medini and Kota Iskandar.
Puteri Harbour is a premier waterfront and marina precinct featuring the first Hello Kitty Town outside Japan, Traders and Somerset Hotels and the Puteri Harbour International Ferry Terminal, which will become the third link to neighbouring Singapore.
SiLC is a 526.09 hectare clean and green managed industrial park which has successfully attracted global companies to relocate to the area.
Meanwhile, Nusajaya Residences is a distinctive residential development and has received strong sales this year.
Among residential areas being developed are East Ledang, Ledang Heights, Nusa Idaman, Puteri Harbour and Horizon Hills.
Afiat Healthpark is an 81-bed Columbia Asia Hospital and is poised to benefit from increasing regional demand for quality healthcare.
EduCity is a 123.42 hectare education hub comprising top universities --Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia and the soon-to-open University of Southampton Malaysia.
By 2018, the student population in EduCity is expected to reach 12,000.
Medini is the lifestyle epicentre of Nusajaya and home to Asia's first Legoland theme park, the Mall of Medini and England's famous Pinewood Studios, which will be completed next year.
Kota Iskandar is Johor's new administrative centre, with around 2,000 civil servants. It will eventually house about 5,000 civil servants and 76 state and federal government departments.
UEM Land Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UEM Land Holdings Bhd, is the master developer of Nusajaya, one of the five key flagship zones in Iskandar Malaysia. — Bernama
