Jland Tower
MENARA JLAND or JLand Tower is the latest addition to the skyline of Johor Bahru city which has been stagnant for 30 years. Sitting atop the well-known Johor Bahru City Centre or JBCC (formerly known as Plaza Komtar), the tower is designed in an asymmetrical form with a contemporary styling which appears a modern urban sculpture to be appreciated from many different angles. The tower design presents a unique visual phenomenon to the Johor Bahru city residents and is a “gateway” to Jalan Wong Ah Fook and downtown areas to the south. The geometric appeal and sheer height makes the tower visible from both land and sea. Maximizing the height provides another opportunity: the inclusion of a public observatory, roof top restaurants, sky garden and sky walk. The observation deck offers a stunning SKY BRIDGE presented as a curved cantilevered glass object and a first of its kind-structure to offer an impressive vista of the city at 150m above ground, thus creating a new tourist attraction for Johor Bahru. reduces the energy running cost for the building owner from a baseline of RM 2 million per year to a running cost of RM 500,000 per year. The building energy intensity of the building (including tenant energy consumption) reduces from 212 kWh/(m².year) down to 82 kWh/(m².year).

 

A holistic energy efficiency approach was proposed to achieve such high efficiency gain. Approximately 50 passive and active energy efficiency features were tested for this building. Many of the efficiency gains are in the region of 1~2% energy reduction per design improvement. In addition, the peak cooling load of the building was reduced by 34% due to these design improvements, allowing a smaller air-conditioning system to be implemented for this building. Menara Johor Land is targeted to be an award-winning corporate office tower with Qlassic and GBI Gold Rated Certification.
