Mixed development in the heart of JB provides residents with home and play
LIGHTING up Johor Baru’s already vibrant skyline is Suasana Iskandar Malaysia, an integrated development by UMLand that redefines the live, work and play concept of the city.
Nestled within 1.42 acres, Suasana Iskandar is located in the heart of JB city centre along Jalan Wong Ah Fook and easily accessible through efficient transport options between the rest of Iskandar Malaysia and Singapore.
The mixed development comprises different components including serviced residence (35 storeys with 339 units), international hotel (18 storeys, 242 rooms) and a 52,543-sq-ft two-storey retail podium.
Suasana Iskandar’s strategic location puts it within walking distance of the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) and the future Rapid Transit System (RTS) station located at Bukit Chagar.
Residents will also be able to visit other nearby places such as JBCC Komtar, Angry Birds Activity Park, Johor Baru City Square, Persada Johor International Convention Centre, JB Sentral Transportation Hub and the Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD).
The development stands to benefit from the rehabilitation of the Segget river due to its heritage value and legacy, and it will be transformed into a new public space for recreation and shopping.
