Iskandar Financial District

South Johor, Malaysia

One of nine flagship zones overlooking the Straits of Johor between Malaysia and Singapore, the Iskandar Financial District Plan seeks to advance long-term economic development and international investment within Malaysia. Developed for Millennium Development International on behalf of Global Capital, the master plan comprises 46 million square feet of high-density, mixed-use development on a 146-hectare (360-acre) site characterized by gently rolling topography. The plan proposes a balanced juxtaposition between the natural and the manmade, consolidating development in tightly developed neighborhoods and allowing extensive parks and public open spaces. Sustainable elements include innovative stormwater management and building orientation that maximizes natural ventilation.
