Singapore-listed Astaka Holdings unveiled the masterplan for its mixed-use development One Bukit Senyum (OBS), located in Johor Baru’s new CBD.
The OBS development sits on a 516,186 sq ft freehold site with a GFA of 6.3 million sq ft. It will be developed in two phases. The first phase comprises The Astaka @ OBS, which contains two residential towers — 65 and 70 storeys — with a total of 438 units. Meanwhile, phase two will include Menara MBJB, the new headquarters of the Johor Baru City Council (MBJB); a five-star hotel with 450 rooms; 1,012 residential units; 254 serviced apartments; a 1.5 million sq ft shopping mall; and a Grade A office building.
Astaka held its groundbreaking ceremony on Aug 28 for MBJB’s new headquarters. The ceremony also marks the start of the construction of phase two of the OBS development. Menara MBJB will have a GFA of 445,848 sq ft and 558 car parks. Once it is completed at end-2019, about 800 employees will relocate to the new MBJB headquarters.
The entire OBS development is expected to be completed by 2021.
