Skies at Vantage Bay
Located in Iskandar Flagship A by Singapore Billionaire
A Truely Integrated Waterfront Township comprises of Residential, Medical Hub, Shopping Malls, Hotel, Convention and Offices.
Vantage Bay will be a massive RM5.5 billion integrated project. It will be built on 9.23 hactare (almost 1 million square feet) of land, which is equivalent to 13 soccer fields. Once completed, Vantage Bay will be an integrated development that consists of a medical hub, residential apartments, a mega shopping and entertainment mall, commercial offices and a hotel. It is a stone’s throw from the Woodlands – Johor Bahru causeway and the customs building CIQ, and the upcoming RTS (Rapid Transport System) that connects directly to the Singapore Woodlands MRT Interchange.
A part of Vantage Bay is a pair of twin towers that are set to become two of the tallest residential apartments in Malaysia, wowing residents with superb views of the Strait of Johor and Singapore’s island skyline. The size of the integrated retail and entertainment mall will be comparable to VivoCity, Singapore’s largest retail and lifestyle mall with a net lettable area of one million square feet. A hotel and office blocks will also be connected to the mall, giving synergy to the vibrant commercial activities that are soon to come.
Be prepared to be wowed by the iconic design of Vantage Bay. RSP Architects Planners & Engineers, Singapore’s leading and oldest architect firm was appointed as the designer. RSP was recently given the task of “Jewel project”, an undertaking to further enhance Changi Airport (ranked number one in the world), giving it an even more representative look.
We can expect fantastic lifestyle features in Vantage Bay like pedestrian walkways in the central areas, with open spaces and lots of greenery. Come night time, one will be tempted to take a stroll under the well placed canopies while alfresco dining outlets will dots the night sky, not unlike a scene from the picturesque Clarke Quay of Singapore.
The medical facilities will be run by Thomson Medical Centre, which Mr Lim privatised early last year. They will sit on 2ha of land and will include a general hospital and centres providing services in areas such as fertility, diabetes, urology and cardiology. The development will cater to locals as well as medical tourists. It is not just a place for the sick, for people who want to have a health check or see a specialist. At the same time, they can have shopping and food and all that.
The Vantage Bay development is expected to create 10,000 jobs in Malaysia over the long run. About 25,000 people will be able to live there once it is completed.

Why Invest in Skies Vantage Bay
Vantage Bay is set to become one of the biggest new launch developments in Iskandar in 2014. It’s biggest in terms of cost involved, area covered, as well as its diversity.
Vantage Bay is an integrated development covering residential, medical hub, shopping mall, office, serviced apartment, convention centre and hotel.
Here are some reasons why invest in Vantage Bay:
1) The most exciting and anticipating development, by Singapore billionaire and Johor Royal Family.
2) Developer Rowsley Ltd is listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange Main Board since 2002.
3) Prime location in Zone A of Iskandar, within 1 km from Johor Bahru CIQ checkpoint and upcoming RTS-MRT station. Extremely near to Singapore, which will attract the investors, home buyers, shoppers, professional and patients from Singapore.
4) Integrated waterfront development covering all important areas, Vantage Bay is destined to be a huge success. It will be a magnet for crowd, working professionals, business travellers, patients, and shoppers.
5) Quality health- care facilities within Vantage Bay. Thomson’s senior nurses and doctors will be involved in running the medical hub. Singaporeans and Malaysians with Central Provident Fund (CPF) accounts will be able to utilise their Medisave reserves to pay for treatment at the new hospital as they will be able to obtain referrals from Thomson Medical Centre Singapore.
6) Iconic high rise towers with spectacular sea views in an unparalleled location by the Johor Bahru waterfront designed by Awards winner RSP Archtitects.
Skies Vantage Bay Location
3 key features of the location
1) Close to CIQ and upcoming RTS-MRT station by 2018
Vantage Bay is within 1km of the Johor CIQ Complex / Johor-Singapore Causeway, and the site is closer to Singapore, in terms of commuting distance, than most major sites. A key catalyst for Vantage Bay is the upcoming RTS-MRT station expected to be located beside the Johor CIQ. This would likely link Vantage Bay to Singapore’s Thomson MRT line by 2018. The RTS-MRT stations are expected to feature co-located customs/immigration facilities so that commuters clear immigrations only once each way. All considered, we see this gated township presenting a stronger proposition as a primary residence for Singapore commuters, especially when compared against Iskandar projects that are located further out.
2) Relatively limited competitive land supply in Vantage Bay’s vicinity
One feature of the Iskandar Development Region is the abundance of raw land due to its vast size (recall that Iskandar is approximately twice the size of Singapore). This is both a boon and a bane; to varying extents, Iskandar projects expect to face competition stemming from abundant land supply in their vicinities. Already, in Danga Bay, we expect several developers to launch major township projects ahead, fairly close to each other, that would be developed in phases over the next decade or so. In general, we see limited land supply in Vantage Bay’s vicinity, relative to other Iskandar regions, given existing developments and large portions designated for special use. The gated Vantage Bay township, anchored with a Thomson Specialist hospital, is located between Foon Yew High School – the largest Chinese independent high school in Malaysia – and an affluent landed-housing estate community.
3) Intensity of use points to high-storey components with sea views
A condition precedent to the Vantage Bay acquisition is that the site will have approval in-principle for a plot ratio of 10.0 or more. This is in line with management indicating a GFA of at least 10 million sq ft for the project. Given concept material released thus far and the high intensity of use, Vantage Bay would likely be developed into a waterfront township with several high-storey components offering sea-views, anchored with a 300-bed Thomson Specialist hospital. As a benchmark, the Raffles City project in Singapore, including its soaring 73-floor hotel component, has a slightly lower plot ratio of 9.9. The project is expected to begin in end 2013 with its hospital and residential apartments to be completed in 2016 under its first phase. The medical facility’s COE, office spaces and retail malls will be built under the second phase.
