The man behind Senibong Cove:
The brainchild of this development is Australian property magnet, Lang Walker, who has earlier delivered high-profile waterfront developments such as Hope Island Resort, Balmain Cove, The Finger Wharf at Woolloomoolloo and Rhodes Waterside. During an investment mission to Malaysia in the late 1990s, he saw the immense economic potential of the site by virtue of its proximity to Singapore. After acquiring about 80 hectares of the freehold land in Iskandar Malaysia, he set out to model the waterfront land after the highly successful Hope Island Resort in Australia.
