Mahabuilders to revive Pandan City Business Centre project

JOHOR BARU: Property developer Mahabuilders Sdn Bhd plans to revive the abandoned Pandan City Business Centre here into a thriving commercial and educational centre.

Managing director Mustapha Hassan said it was currently talking with several educational-related institutions to set up branch campuses, colleges or learning centres.

He said Universiti Malaysia Perlis would be opening its southern region matriculation centre in January with the initial intake of 120 students.

“We also want to attract private medical service providers and banks here,’’ Mustaphatold a press briefing on Thursday.

He said the project by Kretam Holdings Bhd was left abandoned for almost seven years before Mahabuilders took over in 2007 after paying RM20mil to the bank.

The business centre is located along the Tebrau Highway and easily accessible from the city centre and via Jalan Tampoi and Pasir Gudang Highway.

Mustapha said there were 338 shop-offices in four blocks of four-storey commercial buildings with lifts and 1,000 basement parking lots available for tenants.

He said the company was open to any business proposal including turning Pandan City into a one-stop textile and garments wholesale centre like the one in Jalan Kenanga, Kuala Lumpur.

“Accessibility to the centre will also improve when the flyover from the Tebrau Highway and the exit point from the North-South Expressway (NSE) are completed in a year or two,” said Mustapha.

He said the company also wanted to attract domestic and foreign visitors driving to Singapore via the NSE to stay at its Pandan City Hotel, located just a few kilometres from the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex.
