Borneo Island's new tallest in Kuching

RM300 Million Kuching Tower Set To Be New Landmark

KUCHING, Oct 2 (Bernama) -- A RM300 million 39- storey building to be built by Sarawak conglomerate Cahya Mata Sarawak (CMS) Group is set to be a new landmark for the state once it is fully completed by 2008.

The ground-breaking ceremony was performed Sunday by Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud at the site located on the Kuching Isthmus, east of the city.

Abdul Taib, who named the building as Kuching Tower, praised the efforts by CMS Group in making Sarawak an attractive destination through the company's unique property development projects.

Kuching Tower, which will house a luxury hotel and offices, is part of the design for the integrated development of 96 hectares of land at Kuching Isthmus by the CMS Group.

The other plans for the development of the area include the Sarawak Convention and Exhibition Centre that will be able to accommodate 1,500 delegates, a park, a marina and a river bus shuttle service.

The rendering is really lousy... Wrong light, etc. For once I think the final product will be better ;-)

I think it will be better if located in Kuching downtown area where many existing skyscrapers built and made a cluster and additional landmark skyline to the city.
How's about Kuching Istmush development itself? anybody can show the master plan?

For a city like Kuching it is not so good having atleast 3 skycrapers area like they have right now
