Nusajaya is a completely new developed township consisting of residential, commercial, industrial and government facilities. The main Johor State New Administrative Centre is located in Kota Iskandar, Nusajaya. There have been multiple residential projects and have attracted some expats in relocating to the area. SiLC is also one of the largest industrial park in Johor, planned to serve as an outsourcing factory for MNC and Singapore’s companies. Companies such as YongNam (YNH: SP) and Teckwah Industrial (TECK: SP) has already invested in the area.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas is now the busiest port in Johor, the port now can handle more than 10.4million TEUs and continues to grow year on year.

Johor Bahru City Centre redevelopment project focused on new residential and commercial spaces. The area has already attracted large developers from China such as Country Garden (2007: HK) and Guangzhou R&F Properties (2777: HK), developing the largest residential projects Johor has ever seen.

Desaru and Pengerang is a push for tourism and the downstream oil and gas sector. With development in Desaru, the government hopes that Desaru can be an iconic beach resort area in Johor. More importantly, the RAPID project from PETRONAS in Pengerang is a massive downstream project that might cost more than RM88 billion, hopefully to be able to rival the facilities in Jurong Island, Singapore.

Lastly, Senai and Kulai, two towns that have mostly been restricted to the local population are seeing a revamp, to upgrade the two into a world class logistic hub and residential township.

However, the question now remains, is it too late for investors to go into the game? Let’s explore that in our next article.
