Sunway City Iskandar Puteri: The next smart sustainable Sunway city in Johor

Known as Nature’s Capital City, Sunway City Iskandar Puteri lies on the riverine of the Pendas River and overlooks the Straits of Johor.

AS a master community developer, Sunway started its first project in township development over 40 years ago. Sunway City Kuala Lumpur was transformed from a mining wasteland into a thriving township of 200,000 and is now globally known as one of the best tourism destinations as well as a value-generating hub for the nation.

Then the developer embarked on its second project – Sunway City Ipoh. There, Sunway Property worked to create a township surrounded by limestone hills and natural hotsprings. A sleepy hollow pre-1995, Sunway City Ipoh is now Perak’s largest integrated township – an economic driver of the eastern corridor of Ipoh, and an icon for sustainable development.

Known as Nature’s Capital City, Sunway City Iskandar Puteri in Johor is a result of Sunway Property’s experience from building the two aforementioned townships. As Sunway’s largest township yet, the communities will be spoilt for choice. There is an array of entertainment and amenities located within and around the township. Moreover, with the launch of the Coastal Highway Southern Link (CHSL), Sunway City Iskandar Puteri is located a 5km-driving distance to the Second Link Expressway via the CHSL.

With 728 hectares and more than RM30bil in gross development value (GDV), Sunway City Iskandar Puteri is one of the first townships in Johor to be awarded the GBI silver rating.

The township has won the Best Comprehensive Township Award for three consecutive years and the Best Southern Developer last year at the StarProperty Awards. Besides the awards, Sunway City Iskandar Puteri is the first developer to be listed in the Malaysia Book of Records for introducing online customisation for its notable project – the Sunway GRID.

Recently, they also picked up the “Best Green Product and Technology” and “Special Awards on Sustainable Development Goals” for the integration of solar panels within Sunway City Iskandar Puteri’s township and other sustainable initiatives at the Malaysia Green Building Council’s Leadership in Sustainability Awards 2020.

In addition to its many residential developments, Sunway City Iskandar Puteri also focuses on other amenities and facilities within the township such as the Sunway Big Box (the first retail hybrid park), XPARK Sunway City Iskandar Puteri (biggest adventure sports), Sunway Emerald Boulevard 88, Sunway Citrine Hub with the first Jaya Grocer in Johor, Caltex petrol station (the first petrol kiosk in Medini) and soon to open Sunway Big Box Hotel, Sunway GRID Hub and a government Chinese school – SJK(C) Cheah Fah.

Sunway Property started the township seven years ago, with the mission to plant a community seed in Sunway City Iskandar Puteri. The developer had plans to nurture and foster a vibrant community in Iskandar Malaysia through its largest township modelled after its successful flagship township Sunway City Kuala Lumpur and Sunway City Ipoh.

Sunway City Iskandar Puteri is crafted into six beautiful precincts – The Lakeview Precinct, The Parkview Precinct, The Marketplace Precinct, The Seafront Precinct, The Capital Precinct and the Riverside Precinct. Each precinct is designed to be a self-sustaining integrated city with a wide range of amenities and conveniences such as a theme park, retail malls, education hub, medical city, and more.

The Sunway Citrine Residence is located just 500m away from the Seafront precinct. It comprises 328 residences, 167 office suites, and 51 retail space managed by Sunway. The developer’s Sunway Citrine Office Suites was completely sold out when it was first launch 2014. The integrated quality made the development the first choice among buyers. The Sunway Citrine won the Best Integrated Awards (Excellence) at the StarProperty Awards.

Next to Sunway Citrine collections is the Sunway Emerald Residence, the first landed development in Sunway City Iskandar Puteri. Situated on a hilltop with exclusive lakeview, Sunway Emerald Residence is a low-density development that comprises 222 units of link homes, courtyard homes, garden villas, link semi-d and semi-detached homes that come with a private clubhouse.
