Concept[edit]

Located 12 km from Johor Bahru, the 1,474 acre (6 km²) township of Bandar Dato' Onn will be self-contained city and home to more than 90,000 residents when completed. The masterplan for Bandar Dato' Onn has been vigilantly designed, in line with the company's mission to build thriving communities and create a comfortable harmonious and integrated environment.

The development concept of Bandar Dato' Onn is integrated between commercial and residential developments with public facilities and recreational parks. These components are linked through a linear park, with special attention given to landscaping works. Shady driveways, promenades and vistas have been created to provide a feeling of comfort and relaxation to residents and visitors alike.

The Township will be developed based on a neighbourhood concept with a total of 19 neighbourhoods. Every neighbourhood will have large green lungs complete with children's playgrounds and landscaped parks. To be developed in 10 to 15 years, the project will feature some 17,800 properties and is forecast to reap gross sales of RM3.58 billion, with a projected gross profit of RM920 million.

Johor Land Berhad also intends to carve out an 80- acre tract within the township for some 2,700 units of townhouses, apartments and condominiums that will cater to yuppie market. A regional commercial hub is also planned and this is expected to be the nerve centre of the township, and has it potential to be the new business centre of Johor Bahru.
