WB Land Re-defines Industrial Park with Frontier 2

  16 July 2014

Johor Bahru, 14 July 2014: When Menteri Besar Dato’ Mohamed Khaled bin Nordin launches Frontier Industrial Park at Ulu Tiram here this Saturday, it will be a moment that defines the future of industrial development as “gated, guarded and green”.

And rightly so, as Frontier Phase 2, better known as Frontier 2, will feature a two-acre central park as well as eco-friendly design features to make it a “home for industries”, according to developer WB Land Sdn Bhd.

Its General Manager and Director, Wong Yen Yap, said this was the winning edge for the company as Frontier won the “Five-Star Best-in-Malaysia” award for industrial development at the recent Asia Pacific Property Awards (APPA) 2014.

“We are excited and grateful that the Menteri Besar will grace our launch next week and we are happy that Frontier has done Johor proud,” said Wong.

WB Land head of marketing Kevin Woon said Frontier 2 epitomised a “green home” for industries and its location within the matured industrial area of Ulu Tiram enhanced its appeal to industries in Johor and nearby Singapore.

“We have taken the bold decision to offer a centrally-located park complete with a gym, jogging tracks and pavilions as we wanted to give better value to our buyers who are looking for more than just factories to work in.

“With greater emphasis to work-life balance and healthy living in today’s society, we are certain our buyers will appreciate these features,” Woon added.

Besides these unique features, Frontier 2 also offers other practical and eco-friendly solutions. For instance, the buildings are North-South oriented to avoid sun glare and high glazed windows that let in natural light without the heat. Rainwater harvesting is also a standard feature of the factory units together with front and side roller shutters.

Frontier 2 offers 92 units of semi-detached and detached factories, ranging between 6,341 sq feet to 30,000 sq ft. The 62-acre industrial development has a gross development value of RM354 million. With 95% earthwork completed so far, Frontier 2 would be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015.

“We further challenged the norms of factory design by providing a dormitory for workers so buyers do not have to worry where to house their workers. Our buyers particularly love this. We have gone into the details to make Frontier 2 such a homely place for industries to thrive,” Wong said. The secured workers’ dormitory would be ready in the first quarter of 2016.

Frontier 2 is strategically located at Ulu Tiram within Iskandar Malaysia and it is only 15 minutes to Johor Port, 25 minutes to Woodlands Checkpoint and 30 minutes to Senai Airport.

WB Land Sdn Bhd is a company backed by Woon Brothers Construction Sdn Bhd which has a 38-year track record of delivering its projects ahead of schedule.
