The property giants win big with their latest Quayside JBCC development
IT COMES as no surprise that Bangsar Heights Pavilion Sdn Bhd (BHP) - a multiple award-winning property development company, has added a whole list of new accolades to its name, setting new standards in architectural ingenuity and excellence.
For over three decades, BHP has stood as an epitome of excellence in property development.
Founded by the visionary Datuk Seri Dr Robert Lim A.N., the company has achieved remarkable feats in developing more than 50 residential, commercial and industrial marvels across Malaysia with GDV of over RM4.7 billion - an illustrious record that demonstrates a sterling reputation for quality and innovation.
Their latest project, Quayside JBCC - a 180m ultra-lux commercial building in the heart of Johor Baru's bustling city centre, stands the crowning achievement of BHP.
Located within the Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD) - the core economic area of southern Malaysia, the development has reached new heights by winning the prestigious Five Star American Standard Asia Pacific Property Award 2023-2024 (APPA) for Best Leisure Development in Malaysia, bestowed upon by the International Property Awards (IPA).
This accolade is a testament to the project's commitment in delivering exceptional leisure experiences and signifies its elevation to a league of its own.
This state-of-the-art property is more than just a building; it is a testament to architectural brilliance and design finesse that consists of 482 serviced suites, 24 commercial retails and 200 hotel suites.
Quayside JBCC was also named a Regional Nominee in Asia Pacific at the international level - a component of the International Property Awards (IPA) that honours achievements in the property and real estate sector globally - a resounding recognition of the outstanding brilliance and design of the project.
But Quayside JBCC isn't just a structure - it's a marvel. Anticipated to be a certified green building, it will also feature innovative rainwater harvesting built with Industrial Building System (IBS) and Qlassic certified.
The building also proudly showcases an alluring facade adorned with transparent LED lights infusing radiance into its surroundings and spacious double volume floor-to-ceiling glazing for a captivating panoramic view.
The crowning jewel is its transparent cantilevered sky pool that sits at an altitude of 180m, an architectural wonder that is the first of its kind in Malaysia.
Beyond its architectural splendor, Quayside JBCC's strategic location has captured the attention of a multitude of foreign investors from across Asia, the Middle East and the UK.
Nestled near Johor's famed Tan Hiok Nee Heritage Street, it is situated within a 10-minute walk from the Johor-Singapore Causeway, an eight-minute walk from the CIQ Complex, as well as 10-minute walk from the upcoming RTS Bukit Chagar station that is expected to be completed by the end 2026, connecting Johor Baru and Singapore in five minutes.
The magnitude of Quayside JBCC's influence is evident through its significant contribution to Foreign Direct Investments (FDI)s in Johor and earned BHP the Malaysian Property Development Excellent Achievement Award 2023.
The accolade - a recognition of BHP's contribution towards Johor's dynamic economic growth, was conferred by Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi at the Johor Business and Investment Arena, proving that BHP continues to carve paths of innovation, reaffirming its position as a paragon of excellence.
