Johor Bahru City Square is a shopping centre and office building in Wong Ah Fook Street, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia.[1]


The building was opened in 1999.[2] In 2000, the Mega Pavilion Cinema has been upgraded to Cathay Cineplex with new theatres at both level 5 and level 7. In 2005, the Singapore Visitor Centre was launched at the shopping mall.

City Square has three floors of basement carpark. Level 6 has an outdoor garden, pond and a green wall. The shopping mall total floors spread over an area of 41,800 m2 (450,000 sq ft) and consists of 300 retailers.


The Government of Singapore Investment Corporation owns 70% of City Squares shares, which they bought in June 2009. The remaining shares are divided between the Johor Bahru City Council and Iskandar Puteri City Council.[5]
