JOHOR BAHRU – Southkey City Sdn Bhd recently unveiled its new sales gallery, @ Southkey for the Southkey township development, a 330-acre urban lifestyle development in Johor Bahru city centre. The sales gallery is dedicated towards serving customers and visitors better while bringing them closer to owning properties at Southkey.
Boasting an attractive and cutting-edge design, the new sales gallery and show units are located opposite the former gallery which has been vacated to make way for the Southkey Megamall development.
Southkey City Sdn Bhd recently celebrated two significant milestones in their development. The first one was the signing of a Joint Venture Construction Agreement with Ensignia Sdn Bhd (subsidiary of IGB Corporation Bhd) for the construction of Mid Valley Southkey Megamall – Phase 1 project in June 2015. This RM6bil joint venture project has a shareholding proportion of 70:30. The other milestone is the sale of the 3.5-acre Medical Centre land @ Southkey Johor Bahru to Columbia Asia Sdn Bhd in August 2015.
The megamall will be built on a 36-acre plot of land within Southkey and is expected to be opened by the second half of 2018. Once completed, the mall will be the largest shopping mall in the southern region of Malaysia.
Columbia Asia Sdn. Bhd. under the global brand of “Columbia Asia” has been in Malaysia for almost two decades. Today, Columbia Asia has 28 medical hospitals in operation across four major countries in South Asia. This international private healthcare group has plans for further expansion across the Asean region with six more facilities currently at different stages of development and it now owns and manages 11 private hospitals throughout Malaysia, 3 in Indonesia, 3 in Vietnam and 11 in India.
Columbia Asia’s latest addition in Southkey, Johor Bahru will be a fully equipped multi-disciplinary hospital that will provide a much needed amenity for the community.
Construction of the hospital will commence in the third quarter of 2016 and is estimated to be completed in the third quarter of 2018. With a built-up area of approximately 235,000 square feet, the 3-storey hospital will have about 150 beds with comprehensive multi-disciplinary specialty services such as anesthesiology, obstetrics & gynecology, cardiology, general surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, orthopedics, ENT, radiology, emergency care and many more.
