JB CIQ

Highlights

  • The CIQ building, the gateway into Singapore is widely reported to be the busiest border crossing in the world. More than 300,000 commuters, mainly Malaysians who work in Singapore ply the route daily. Weekend Singaporean, with 2nd homes and shoppers, add to the congestion.
  • Properties closest to the CIQ command among the highest price and rental making the CIQ gateway a prime hotspot that surpasses all hotspots in each of the 8 areas that make up Iskandar Malaysia.

JB CIQ Location

  • Tri Tower and Suasana share a coveted top spot of having the shortest walking distance to the CIQ hub. Approximately 4-minute walk.
