Bukit Indah

Not to be confused with Bukit Indah, an industrial park on the outskirts of Jakarta, Indonesia. Bukit Indah is also a neighbourhood in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Bukit Indah

Bukit Indah[1] is a township located in Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia,[2] Johor, Malaysia. The township was developed by SP Setia Berhad and has a population of over 60,000 with over 10,000 houses. Bukit Indah is fast gaining reputation as the "centre" of the "new" western Johor (Nusajaya) commercial district.

Undergoing rapid construction, The Indah Walk 1 (Fashion Avenue), Indah Walk 2 (Food Avenue) Indah Walk 3 (Life Style Office & Education Avenue), The Granada Hotel, The Loon Sing Restaurant, The Sky Executive Suites and The Sky Loft.

The Indah Walk 1 consisting of 39 shops are directly opposite the main drive entrance to the AEON Jusco Bukit Indah, and this is where McDonald's will be located.

Indah Walk 2 consists of 43 shops next to Tesco. The Indah Walk retail shop offices housed in three-storey clustered buildings offer a range of fine-dining, professional services and recreation facilities.

Indah Walk 3 consist of 20 Retail Lots and 120 Office units with lobby lift access.

"Bukit Indah - the address" is one of the most sought after addresses in Johor Bahru esp. among Johorians with higher incomes, Malaysians working in Jurong Singapore, and Singaporeans looking for a second home.

The Sky Loft will tower across the Sky together with The Sky Executive Suites (over 25 to 30+ Storeys) making these Twin Towers among the tallest buildings of the township. These iconic high rise Serviced Apartments, are highly popular among executives using public transport to Jurong East daily.

This is because the Suites are within walking distance to the Bukit Indah Bus Interchange which connects directly to Singapore's MRT network.

The value of land in Nusajaya, where Bukit Indah is located, is expected to increase, esp. with the future Wellness City to be jointly built by Temasik (SWF of Singapore) and Khazanah (SWF of Malaysia). This area would be the first new economic zone that both governments have a vested interest.

History

Bukit Indah was launched in 1997. It won the Johor State Landscape Award 2001, the National Landscape Competition 2001 and the Best of the Best National Landscape Award 2005.

On 24 May 2010, the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Singapore have signed a landmark agreement to lower the toll charges for the Tuas Secondlink significantly, thus benefiting the residents of Bukit Indah.

Shopping

Tesco Bukti Indah

The township draws crowds from Singapore as well as neighbouring townships such as Taman Sutera, Tampoi Utama, Nusa Bestari and Tmn Perling, due to the existence of Tesco Hypermarket and AEON Jusco Bukit Indah Regional Shopping Centre which are located in the township. Giant Hypermarket is also located adjacent to the township.

The TESCO hypermarket is located just across the road. The GIANT Hypermarket is located adjacent to it, and the AEON Jusco Bukit Indah Regional Shopping Centre is within 5 minutes walking distance.

Bukit Indah remains the one and only current, prime commercial and residential district of the whole of western johor with the following factors.

  1. Only township with equal distance to both the woodlands and tuas checkpoints via the new coastal highway.
  2. Major banks
  3. Direct bus link to Jurong East and Boon Lay MRT's
  4. At Least 5 Major Banks or more
  5. Mega Chinese Luxury Restaurant

Therefore, while landed houses prices can start from as low as SGD$218,000 a good class landed property with a good neighbourhood normally start from SGD$400,000.

Transportation

From Singapore, the Causeway Link Bus No. CW3 links Jurong East Bus Interchange, Singapore directly to the Bukit Indah Bus Interchange in the township. Bus No. CW6 now also links the township with the Boon Lay MRT. Other public buses also connect the township to other parts of Johor.

From Tuas Checkpoint via Exit 307C and Exit 308, drivers may reach the township in 20 minutes. From Woodlands Checkpoint, via Skudai Highway and JB Parkway, Exit 308; drivers may reach the township in 25 mins.

With the completion of the new Nusajaya coastal highway from Tuas - Gelang Patah - Lego Land - Medini 1 - Horizon Hills - Bukit Indah - Danga Bay - Johor CIQ - Woodlands, the travel time from Bukit Indah either to the causeway or secondlink will be cut significantly.

In line with both governments to ensure faster immigration clearance, the MACS - Malaysia Automated Clearance System has been implemented. This facility allows fast-track immigration clearance for non Malaysia investors, business persons and professionals.

The scope of MACS facility has been expanded to Singapore Citizens who has been issued with the relevant long term immigration pass OR frequently travel within Malaysia and Singapore for the purpose of working, studying and staying in Malaysia.[3][4][5][6]
