Johor, Malaysia

Johor is a state of Malaysia that is located in the southern region of the country peninsula. Johor is one of the richest states in Malaysia in terms of GDP, as it is the only state that is located adjacent to Singapore. The population of Johor is around 4 millions, and has a population that consists of around 52% Malays, 33% Chinese, and 10% Indians. The public transportation here is almost non-existent except for some public buses, however its capital city Johor Bahru is located within walkable distance to Singapore.

As for the real estate market, Johor has one of the least affordable housing markets in the country due to it being adjacent to Singapore. Besides, the high property prices here are also due to the government's development of the Iskandar Economic Region, which promotes foreign direct investment into the state. Most of the foreign investments that flow into the state's real estate market come from China nationals and Singaporeans. As of May 2018, the state is now run by the Pakatan goverment for the first time after winning the 14th General Election of Malaysia.

The following shows the residential property transactions in Johor over the last few years:

Johor has mostly foreigner-friendly real estate investment policies by the state government, as foreigners can easily buy any residential properties here without any restrictions, as long as the price is above RM1 million. Besides, the state government has been partnering with China-based developers to build mega cities on reclamation land, whereby some are also duty-free such as Forest City.

The apartment room was spacious with kitchen area, living area with crouch and tv, bathroom and bed area furthest in with windows overlooking jb city from 26th level off ground.
Requested for additional towels as well as hand towels for swimming and gym usage without any issues. Staff was friendly to our requests. Checkout was a breeze dropping off key cards to the same lady in the sales office.
A quick 5min grab taxi away from ksl or city Square and eateries ard the area. Very value for money stay recommended to all.

Luxurious residential condominium near Johor Bahru city, in a most happening strip akin to Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Bintang. Plenty of entertainment, food and conveniences. Condo is equipped with facilities such as swimming pool, billiard room, games room, gymnasium, even a karaoke room. Great for long or short term stay. Understand that a number of units are used as AirBnB.

Very clean and less noisy, comfortable parking. The apartment with swimming pool and BBQ facility's.

Value for money very clean high security.

The stay was nice! But i hate the security with bad manner and talking loudly to tenent! And the bad free bus service that was never on time! Even the bus broke down also never give notice to us and let me wait for an hour at jbcc komtar! I really hope it has improvement in the future!

Good design marred by poor project management leading to late construction. Developer rushed things on the final lap to avoid Paying LD compensation for late delivery. The result - what a waste of good design. The facilities are not fully operational when CCC was issued. How could the independant architecht have approved a partially completed building?

Secure apartment as it requires access card to access specific floor.
Very windy at facilities floor and Sky Garden.
The car park area very narrow, especially the entrance at the back.
Just be careful when you turning into car park area.

Is a good apartment, all facilities is under good conditions, the management team/staff is very helpful & very polite & help my family.

We very happy with this apartment facilities & the management team.

Security Guard Sucks.. visitor can park for overnight and i rent the room of here mot even can park for 3 hours.. suchs a MANAGEMENT

Very Near to JB Customs.

Old building. Near shopping complex. Shopping complex also surviving. But safe place to have lunch in the mall. Toilet are every floor. But surau is at shopping complex parking area.

I am the resident here and staying since 2008...the security services and management are both corrupted making people life more hard staying....not helpful at all only knows how to collect management fees...the location is good but service and facilities provided are too bad with the expensive management fees. LAGI LAMA LAGI TERUK.

Great place to find gadget, beauty produk, beauty service, women produk and relaxing!

My family and I simply love coming here time and time again. They have everything under one roof. Supermarket, cinema, plenty of food choices inclusive halal, bakeries, numerous fashion retails and the list goes on. Even though there have been many change in stalls, we do not get bored every time we are here and not forgetting the hotel situated within the same building which make it all the more reason for us to keep coming back here.
