PETALING JAYA (April 20): Horizon Hills Development Sdn Bhd, a 50:50 joint venture between UEM Land Bhd and Gamuda Bhd, has entered into a collaboration with CES Horizon Sdn Bhd (CES Horizon), a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore-based Chip Eng Seng Corp Ltd (Chip Eng Seng Corp), and Nusajaya Greens Sdn Bhd, for the establishment of a built-to-suit school within the Horizon Hills township in Iskandar Puteri, Johor Bahru.
The K-12 international school will be operated by CES Horizon under the “Invictus” international school brand and will offer kindergarten, primary and secondary-level instruction (up to year 12).
The campus will occupy 4.14 acres in Horizon Hills, with a gross floor area of approximately 203,875 sq ft. As part of the collaboration, Horizon Hills Development will develop and construct the campus over three phases, which CES Horizon will lease under a 15-year term, with an option to renew for a further 15 years.
Nusajaya Greens, a wholly owned subsidiary of UEM Land via Bandar Nusajaya Development Sdn Bhd, is the registered owner of the land on which Horizon Hills is sited. UEM Land is a wholly owned subsidiary of UEM Sunrise Bhd.
Commenting on the built-to-suit school Gamuda Land chief executive officer Ngan Chee Meng (pictured) said good location and a well master-planned township with great gathering places and amenities bring the community closer together.
“Horizon Hills was planned with all the right key places – the workplace, play place, shopping place, park place and the learning place, ensuring the sustainability of the town well into the future,” he said in a media statement.
The construction of the first phase of the campus is expected to complete in 2022 and is set to open its doors in 2023, with a capacity of up to 1,500 students in phases.
Invictus International School will adopt the UK Cambridge curriculum, from pre-school levels up to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and Cambridge International A Levels (Advanced Levels).
