Kota Iskandar (Jawi: كوتا إسكندر) (formerly Johor State New Administrative Centre (JSNAC)) is an administrative centre for the state government of Johor, Malaysia. It is located in Iskandar Puteri, Johor Bahru District and it is the first phase of the Iskandar Puteri project. It was named after the late Sultan of Johor, Almarhum Sultan Iskandar. The Iskandar Puteri project itself is a part of Iskandar Malaysia. Kota Iskandar was developed by Cahaya Jauhar Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the State of Johor and the first Phase was completed in 2008. The concept of Kota Iskandar pays reverent tribute to the Islam, the official state religion of Johor.

The buildings faces the kiblat (directions of Kaaba) and is based on a Johor-Malay and Moorish architecture. The Chief Minister's and State Secretary Office houses the chief minister's office, state EXCO offices, Secretary of State office and many other departments. It has 21,480 square feet (1,996 m2) of office space in a five storey structure.[1]
