The Iskandar Development Region (IDR) is located at the border of Singapore, in Malaysia (Johor).
The Iskandar Development Region (IDR) is an ambitious partnership between Singapore and Malaysian Governments to turn 2,500 sqkm of land (three times the size of Singapore) into an economic zone in Malaysia.
It attracted RM50 billion (USD15B) in investments within the first five years and is expected to top up to RM370 billion (USD118B) over 20 years.
Singaporean Government invests in this economic zone:
1) To control the real estate Bubble in Singapore
2) To generate new business opportunities for companies, in this economic hub.
Singapore Government has invested S$30 billion (USD24B) in IDR.
All features have been put together to warrant the success of IDR:
An International education city (16,000 students) is under construction. An international clinic and medical research center are already built, as well as, shopping malls, resorts, entertainment themes parks (Lego Land, Hello Kitty, …) and all commodities for international residents to feel at home.
The Singaporean-Malaysian Governments partnership is now evolving to transportation links development:
• A subway (MRT) and a High Speed Train (HST) will connect both sides, in 2020, on top of the two existing high way.
• Discussions are in progress to partner on air-transport.
Singapore has suffered from a significant real estate bubble during 2010 to 2012 (+18% per year average).
The Government has managed to stabilize partially this bubble, with a market increase of 2% per quarter (8% per year - excluding social apartments market).
Because Singapore is a 720 km2 island, horizontal development is getting more and more problematic.
Due to the exponential demand (residential, office, industrial), the market is still under strong pressure.
For this reason, the Singaporean Government has invested S$30 billion, to buy lands in Iskandar, though the investment organization TEMASEK.
Comparison of equivalent residential products in terms of type, size and distance from Singapore CBD (Central Business District), Nusajaya/Iskandar market is 650% lower than Singapore city market.
Since its beginning (2008), Nusajaya/Iskandar residential market has increased +25% per year, with such progression perspective for over the 10 next years, due to the politic efforts and its strategic situation.
