Broadway Malyan has recently designed a conceptual master plan for the GCD Media Village in Medini, Malaysia, which will support the new Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios, a circa $130 million film and television production facility project which is expected to create over 3,000 jobs.
GCD Media Village will provide a home and catalyst for creative industries in the region as well support services for the future regional film industry, and it will be located in close proximity to the Medini Business District, which the practice is also masterplanning to create a series of new specialist business clusters.
Broadway Malyan has also just completed the concept masterplan for the wider Medini project, which will create a series of mixed-use communities over a 1,000 hectare area, with new residential communities and resort hotels planned in Medini Living, the southern-most development zone in Medini, to maximise the hilly topography and views over the protected mangroves.
The practice’s team has designed the masterplans through drawning inspiration from the surrounding landscape, which includes one of the largest areas of mangroves in South East Asia, and a beautiful waterfront.
The Medini project is part of the larger Iskandar development plan, one of the Malaysian government’s key flagship projects covering an area of over 2,217 square kilometres and equivalent to three times the size of Singapore.
