Gerbang Nusajaya

Gerbang Nusajaya is a township in Iskandar Puteri, Johor, Malaysia.[1] The site is the second phase of development of Iskandar Puteri and is being developed over a 25-year period by Malaysian firm UEM Sunrise Berhad.[2]

Major projects in Gerbang Nusajaya include a Science park, a motorsports hub, and mixed commercial and residential properties.

The development is expected to house a population of 220,000 and to create 76,000 direct and 137,000 indirect jobs.[1] The proposed Kuala Lumpur–Singapore high-speed rail Iskandar Puteri HSR Station will be built here.

In October 2012 Singapore’s Ascendas Land International Pte Ltd and UEM subsidiary UEM Land Holdings set up a 60:40 joint venture to develop a $1.2 billion 519-acre industrial park in Nusajaya.[3] The park will be developed in three phases over nine years and will host 34,000 businesspeople across electronics, pharmaceuticals, food processing, engineering, FMCG and logistics.[4] It is due for completion in 2023.[5]

In March 2015 Telekom Malaysia Berhad partnered with Nusajaya Tech Park Sdn Bhd to develop a data centre, ICT infrastructure and smart services on the site.[6]
