Now, let me tell all of you in case you all do not know. Now only i know the exact location of the potential IKEA. Haha.
The square box on top will be the location of IKEA Johor Bahru. Hmm, which means that IKEA is really coming to JB !!! The yellow part is Jusco Tebrau City and its left side is the TESCO.
This is the landscape design of the new IKEA in Johor Bahru.
Little that i know from wikimapia , Ikano Group had bought that 36.94-acre land with RM 64.4m cash( RM40 per square feet) in mid-2007. That piece of land is for IKEA retail with an estimated built-up area of 280, 000 square feet which should be ready by year 2009/10. Well, it will be slightly smaller than IKEA Damansara (344,445 sq ft).
But, its already 2009, anyone live around there seen any changes to the land over there? Haha. I think its in the progress. About the completion date, some material said on 2012, some material called it IKEA Tebrau City. Hmm, lets wait and see what it is going to be and when it is going to finish.
Let's hope IKEA in Johor Bahru will be able to give some fresh air and market to JB people, probably for Singaporean who may think buying IKEA products in JB will be cheaper than IKEA in Sg. Haha. Now you know where is the exact location of new IKEA, so when there is people asking you, you may know how to answer especially JOHOR BAHRU PEOPLE !!
