Suasana Iskandar is set to become one of the tallest buildings in the Johor Bahru City Center. As the newest integrated development and the only serviced residence in the city center, the project will feature a 25-story serviced residence with 339 units, an 18-story Amari Hotel with 242 rooms and a two-story Zenith Entertainment Hub.
Strategically located on Jalan Wong Ah Fook, Suasana Iskandar is surrounded by Komtar JBCC, Johor Bahru City Square, Angry Birds Activity Park, Persada Johor International Convention Centre and many more F&B and lifestyle amenities. Residents and guests will also have easy access to JB Sentral Transport Hub, CIQ and the Shuttle Tebrau Train station that connects them directly to Singapore Woodlands Station. In the future, the MYR 20 billion (approx. $4.84 billion) Ibrahim International Business District will be completed across the road.
Developed by UMLand Bhd, this freehold residence features four types of units. One, two and three bedroom apartments. Sizes range from 644 sq. ft. for the smallest units up to 2,201 sq. ft. for the penthouse unit.
Each unit is fitted with Samsung Smart Home technology which includes everything from digital locking systems, AV intercom, to multiple wireless devices in the home. The kitchen features built-in cabinets, an electric cooker, hood and microwave oven. The bedrooms feature state-of-the-art wall-mounted air conditioners to keep you cool in this tropical climate.
If you love the convenience of having all you need within walking distance, then this property is for you. Residents will not only have direct access to the lifestyle and entertainment hub, Zenith mall, situated on the floors below, but also the Johor Bahru City Square and Komtar JBCC situated across the road. Visitors will find numerous shops, food and beverage options and lots of entertainment for the whole family.
With the current redevelopment of the Johor Bahru City Centre, it is also rejuvenating its Sungai Segget, that flows right in front of Suasana Iskandar. New landscaping will make the river a highlight of the city for tourists and locals alike. However, if you’d rather stay home, there’s still plenty to do, as Suasana Iskandar features numerous amenities. There’s a sky pool on the 34th floor with spectacular views of the city and plenty of outdoor seating space. A fitness center is also on the rooftop, well equipped with enough machines and weights to get you in the best shape of your life.
Residents’ life will be made effortless while at home. A 24-hour concierge service is made available seven days a week. If you need reservations at the latest restaurant, a chauffeured car to Senai International Airport, or tickets to Legoland, a friendly concierge is only a phonecall away. There’s also multi-tier security on-site to keep you safe and sound whether it is 10 am on a Saturday or 11 pm on Wednesday night.
Suasana Iskandar offers the convenience of living in downtown Johor Bahru with the quality of building we’ve come to expect from UMLand. The catalytic projects in the Johor Bahru City Center will transform this area into an even better place to work, live and play in. The residence is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
