14 March, ISKANDAR PUTERI – ONE15 Marina Development Berhad, a Joint Venture Company (JVC) between SGX Mainboard-listed SUTL Enterprise Limited (SUTL Enterprise or the Group) and UEM Land Berhad (UEM Land) a wholly owned subsidiary of UEM Sunrise Berhad (UEM Sunrise), today marked the commencement of construction of ONE°15 Marina Puteri Harbour Malaysia with a ground-breaking ceremony graced by His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, Sultan and Sovereign Ruler of the State and Territory of Johor Darul Ta’zim. The Sultan was accompanied by a delegation from the Johor State government, led by Chief Minister of Johor, Dato’ Haji Osman Haji Sapian.
The ground-breaking ceremony marks a significant milestone for the JVC, which had first announced plans for ONE°15 Marina Puteri Harbour Malaysia, in February 2016. In December 2018, it was granted the approval by the Companies Commission of Malaysia (or Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM) for the sale of memberships.
The JVC is currently in the process of setting up a marketing gallery at Puteri Cove Residences which is in close proximity to the site of the upcoming marina and plans to start its membership drive in tandem. Prospective members will be able to catch a glimpse of what ONE°15 Marina Puteri Harbour Malaysia has to offer with the launch of the club’s marketing gallery in May 2019.
Thoughtfully designed and curated, the gallery will reflect the ONE°15 brand philosophy, as well as the unique personality and characteristics of this city marina.
The gallery will also showcase key features of the marina, including an impressive scale model of the clubhouse and marina, complete with interactive lighting and technological features for a more immersive experience. Through this gallery, visitors will embark on an experiential journey where they will be introduced to the marina lifestyle.
The marina will target Singaporeans, Malaysians as well as expatriates living in, or who own property in, Johor. The new marina caters to affluent families as well as singles and millennials who enjoy the waterfront lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Its key suburbs, which include Puteri Harbour, have been seeing strong population growth from China, South Korea and Japan because of the availability of international schools, better quality of life, lower cost of living and clean environment as well as strong retail and recreational options.
