Iskandar Puteri’s dynamic growth is revitalising the landscape of Johor

Its rapid development and vibrant revitalising of Johor’s landscape has earned Iskandar Puteri the honor of being the state’s second city and the country’s 14th, as proclaimed by the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar. In fact, it was His Majesty who chose the name, which was the original moniker for Johor Bahru prior to 1866. In naming it such, Johor brings its history full circle as the current administrative capital of Kota Iskandar is located at the newly-minted city.

Within Iskandar Puteri, all eyes are now on Medini Iskandar Malaysia (MIM), a prestigious townships that aims to provide a harmonious balance of work, play, learn, and live, in its bid to become the ‘Icon of Future City Living’. Supporting this vision is 207-acre Avira masterplanned development, a joint venture between E&O Berhad and the wholly-owned subsidiaries of Khazanah Nasional Berhad and Temasek Holdings Pte Ltd that has manifested as one of just a handful of landed properties at MIM. A paean to lush tropical living, Avira’s maiden launch, Avira Garden Terraces, boasts generous frontage and private courtyards, designed for seamless flow of space, optimal natural light and ideal air circulation.

After all, Avira was inspired by the Aramaic word for ‘air, atmosphere and spirit’ and presents as a calm, quiet residential sanctuary. Make Avira your home and you’ll enjoy a host of advantages that lets you make the most of life.

Nurturing the next generation

Just 7km from Avira is EduCity Iskandar Malaysia, an education hub with three international schools and seven universities. For early to tertiary schooling, there’s Sunway International School, Marlborough College Malaysia, and Raffles American School, each with its unique syllabus and education style. For college-going students, the following institutions from the UK and Netherlands have campuses here: University of Nottingham Malaysia, Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia, University of Southampton, University of Reading, Raffles University Iskandar, Multimedia University and Netherlands Maritime Institute of Technology.

Both are established names in the field, known for their highly-qualified medical personnel and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Whether it’s an emergency or routine check-up, you know you’ll be in good hands.
