On Tuesday, UEM Land announced that its 50:50 JV company with UM Land ' Nusajaya Consolidated Sdn Bhd had inked two agreements with The Ascott Limited (under Capitaland).

'We believe the strategic tie-up is via UM Land as Capitaland has a 21% stake in the company. This new Somerset will be Ascott first presence in Johor,' it said.
