Bandar Malaysia Project
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak's marquee megaproject has hit a rough spot. Six years after he unveiled plans for Bandar Malaysia—a RM160 billion public-private partnership effort to build a 197-hectare (487-acre) shopping, housing and transit hub on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur—his government in May forced out a joint venture backing the project. Now Mr. Razak's team is looking for a deep-pocketed new partner. Construction firms will have to wait a bit longer to help build the city-within-a-city.
