Bringing celebration to the people
Sunway City Iskandar Puteri livens up the CNY festive
Chinese New Year is the biggest holiday celebrated among the Chinese community. It is often referred to as the spring festival because it signals the beginning of spring. It is a time when families and friends get together to say goodbye to the old and welcome the new. However, with the new norm and reimplementation of the movement control order, it is hard for everyone to return home to celebrate Chinese New Year with their families and friends.
As a Master Community Developer, Sunway City Iskandar Puteri will be organising various activities within its Sunway Big Box Mall and Sunway Citrine Hub exclusively for its customers. Nevertheless, the safety and health of every customer are of the topmost priority, hence, all activities and initiatives will follow strict SOPs. Community building plays a big portion for master community developer Sunway Property as Sunway City Iskandar Puteri is one of its largest township projects.
With a gross development value of more than RM30bil, this development covers over 1,800 acres of land, offering a world-class city balanced with the beauty of nature, making it truly Nature’s Capital City. The low-density integrated township within Medini comprises 40% greenspace and 5km away from the MalaysiaSingapore Second Link via the Coastal Highway Southern Link.
Promotions in abundance
From Jan 8 to March 7, 2021, both Sunway Big Box Retail Park and Sunway Citrine Hub will be celebrating the Happy Niu Year in style, playing on the word niu, which means ox in Mandarin. Sunway Big Box is Malaysia’s first hybrid retail park, combining large retail formats and smaller retail formats to cater to the Johor community.
The open air strip mall environment will allow visitors to explore shopping and dining in a large and non-conventional ambience. The retail centre, integrated with the upcoming 280-room Sunway Hotel Big Box and a 170,000 sq ft of net leasable area (NLA) office tower, is connected to a 32-acre extreme park component. With a total development cost of RM242mil, this two-floor retail cluster spans across 500,000 square feet of NLA, offering close to 100 stores of retail, F&B and entertainment outlets.
Selfies and angpow gifts
Shoppers can snap a selfie with the Oxpicious Golden Ox, which is said to bring prosperity and luck this year, or craft their lucky charms to discover their good fortunes in the new year. Make a wish at the golden Cherry Blossom Wishing Tree and with each wish made, Sunway Big Box Retail Park will contribute RM5 to buy essentials or food for the needy in Johor Bahru in collaboration with The Lost Food Project.

Sunway City Iskandar Puteri is expected to have a population of 140,000 once the development is completed. The development will be developed into six precincts containing The Capital, The Parkview, The Lakeview, The Riverside, The Seafront, and The Marketplace. And each precinct is designed to be a self-sustaining integrated city like Sunway City where convenient amenities are facilitated within the city itself to cater to the needs and wants of the residents.
Currently, the developer will be completing the Sunway Grid Residence and planning to launch its latest residential duo-living landed homes aptly named Sunway Maple Residence. In addition, the developer will be opening its first Sunway Hotel Big Box in Johor this year.
Members of the public can also expect the opening of the first government Chinese school SJK (C) Cheah Fah and the completion of the Sunway Big Box office tower next year. Besides that, the development aims to open its second Starbucks concept store with a drive-thru facility. The master community developer will also be focusing on eco-tourism initiatives such as a new solar and farm project, XPARK’s expansion for motorsports, and a global learning village in Sunway City Iskandar Puteri.
