RM1b hypermall to woo Arabs

Kota Kinabalu: The development of a RM1 billion hypermall, “1 Borneo” augurs well for the State tourism industry as it will provide a shopping attraction to Sabah, in addition to its natural wonders, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.



“We hope with this development, we can attract tourists from the Middle East. Now, we aren’t keen to promote (Sabah) to tourists from the Middle East because we don’t have enough places, enough rooms for them to come and we don’t have enough places for them to shop,” he said after witnessing the signing of an agreement between United Sabah Islamic Association (USIA) and Sagajuta (Sabah) Sdn Bhd to develop “1 Borneo” hypermall on a 9.32-hectare site in Kuala Menggatal, here, Friday.


Musa said the Middle East tourists loved to shop and they would like to stay in service apartments as they stayed longer compared to other tourists.


He said tourist arrivals in the State had shown an increase this year as a result of additional direct flights from Kota Kinabalu to China, Japan, Australia and Indonesia.


Meanwhile, Sagajuta Managing Director Raymond Chan said the hypermall project, with a total build-up area 4.5 million sq ft (418,500 sq m) was expected to commence in February next year. The RM1 billion hypermall was expected to be ready by April 2008.


Apart from service apartments, the hypermall will also include 1.5 million sq ft (139,500 sq m) of retail space, two blocks office towers, private college, 3500 car park bays and one block office/shop lots.


Chan said Sabah lacked bigger and better shopping facilities to provide an extra push for the State, which is famous for its nature wonders.


Once completed the mall would have a hypermarket, handicraft and batik gallery, mega bookstore and music store, auto city, dining outlets, mega sport stores as well as specialty shops.


On the joint venture with USIA, Chan said as land owner, USIA would be given some cash consideration and certain amount of units from the projects.


USIA President Tun Sakaran Dandai said the project would enable the association to get some income to finance its activities for the benefit of the Muslims in the State.-Bernama

Commercial centres set to change KK

Property Talk with S.C. CHEAH

THE proposed KK Times Square and 1 Borneo are two major commercial developments that are set to change the face of Kota Kinabalu (KK). They are not only big in terms of size and gross development value but also special in concept and design.

Competition has been intense with several new commercial projects being launched in the city. However, all eyes are on the KK Times Square and 1 Borneo whose combined retail and office space covers a few million square feet!

The improved economy and rising tourist arrivals to KK (1.77 million tourists last year, with more than half being Malaysians, and the figure is expected to rise to 2.7 million by 2007) have boosted investor confidence in the retail and office market and the belief that there is a pent-up demand for such properties, especially from wealthy Sabahans and Sarawakians.

So what do these two projects have to offer? KK Times Square: This project by Asian Pac Holdings Bhd subsidiary Syarikat Kapasi Sdn Bhd will be developed in two phases – Signature Offices and The Mall. It will offer KK residents and tourists a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities.

The Signature Offices, on eight acres, will have 12 blocks of business suites; five, six and eight-storey shop offices; and retail outlets. When completed, it is slated to become one of the region's most exciting business hubs.

The Mall, on 15 acres, will have a hotel, department store, hypermarket, specialty retail shops, middle and upmarket food and beverage outlets, food court, cineplexes, and sports and exhibition facilities. It will even offer boat rides. There will also be a cultural centre and office towers. The total gross area is about 2 million sq ft. An advantage is that the retail lots in the shopping centre are not for sale.

Asian Pac is bringing its successful Phileo Damansara modern retail-office concept to KK and, in so doing, set the future trend for shop office developments there.

The main features of the Signature Offices would include the double-volume ceiling for the ground floor corridors (15ft wide). The absence of back lanes would also ensure that the overall development is well maintained.

The shops have double frontages. It is on 23 acres of very prime reclaimed land that commands two excellent frontages: the four-lane coastal highway and the sea overlooking the Sutera Harbour Resort. It is also squatter-free.

The proximity of this resort (with its Sutera Harbour Marina Golf & Country Club, Sutera Harbour Marina and Yacht Club, and two five-star hotels, the Pacific Sutera Hotel and the Magellan Sutera Hotel) has enhanced the area's prestige. Sales have been good.

A company director Johnny Cheah, who “set roots” in KK after coming from Penang some 25 years ago and who has studied feng shui, feels that KK Times Square has a “blessed” location. “It is said that when you do business, it is good to have your office on flat land and facing a big pool of water. This project faces the sea with a nice view of a five-star resort,” he added.

1 Borneo: It is claimed that 1 Borneo's hypermall will be the biggest shopping mall in Borneo. Its 1.5 million sq ft of space is about three times the size of KK's Centrepoint shopping centre. It will have more than 600 retail lots and dual-frontage shoplexes.

The project's preview held on March 4 saw the developer Sagajuta (Sabah) Sdn Bhd on an aggressive marketing drive.

Although it is about 7km from the city centre, it enjoys a new growth location as it is next to the upcoming Alam Mesra and Kingfisher Park townships, University Malaysia Sabah Campus, Sepangar Bay Port, Naval Base, Sabah Medical Centre and the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP).

It will boast a RM1bil “hypermall” that houses a 100,000 sq ft hypermarket, department stores, two and three-storey shoplexes (comprising an Autocity and alfresco dining), specialty shops, mega book shop, and mega sports store, among others.

There is also a proposal to have a “Harajuku” centre, named after Tokyo's happening place for youths.

There will also be a 36-lane bowling centre, 10-screen cineplexes, fitness centre, 3,500 parking bays, corporate office towers, a 230-room hotel, and a specialist medical centre and college.

A portion of the retail space would be leased out to main and mini anchors as well as being kept by the developer. The bulk of the retail lots are for sale. An expert on shopping complexes, Richard Chan, said it was not always the case that selling retail lots would lead to a half empty shopping centre as had happened in the Klang Valley, provided there was good management of the centre.

“1 Borneo is a state flagship development that will be the pride and joy of Sabah.”





Take a stroll through 1.5 million sq ft of shopping, leisure and dining choices. With more than 600 dual-frontage shoplexes and retail lots, come and discover seamless shopping pleasure with outlets ranging from latest clothes, jewellery, watches, accessories, leather and electronic goods, mega bookstores and various regional designer brands.

For the first time, top international and regional anchors will make 1 Borneo their home. Other brands confirmed to reside at 1 Borneo will include the latest trendsetting brands from around the region.

Located within Kota Kinabalu, 7 km northwards along the Jalan Sulaman Highway surrounded by lush greenery overlooking the majestic Mount Kinabalu and the Crocker Range, 1 Borneo is set to be the ultimate shopping experience in Borneo to be enjoyed by locals and foreign tourists alike. It is nestled in the middle of a growth triangle formed by the Federal Administrative Centre, the fast growing ultra modern University Malaysia Sabah and the upcoming Alamesra Township.



No effort on product research has been spared for the design and concept of the hypermall in order to cater to evolving trends and discerning lifestyles of the future. The excitement will hit you the minute you arrive and as you absorb the sensational splendour and diversity of the hypermall.

The unique shopping concepts will include the “Jalan-Jalan” street bazaar, the Handicraft & Batik Gallery with Cultural Heritage Centre and the Harajuku concept.

The hypermall will also house 1 Borneo’s 36-lane state-of-the-art bowling centre, 10-screen multiplex & KTV lounge, one-stop bridal centre, homemaker/children centre, IT/internet centre, DIY stores and autocity.

After a glorious shopping experience, a whole world of culinary delights will await the family. Indoor or alfresco, the choice is endless from chic restaurants, cafes to charming family outlets to satisfy every taste bud in the community.

1 Borneo will also be home to a deluxe three-star hotel, boutique specialist centre and a private college.

Excellent customer service and care will be the hallmark of 1 Borneo. We take pride in making your shopping and leisure experience so delightful and memorable that it will be a joy each time you set foot through our stores. Customers will be pampered with the 3 C’s for Complete, Convenience and Comfort.

Customer service desks manned by well trained personnel will be located on the Concourse and Ground Levels. There will also be Directory Boards prominently displayed.

Kota Kinabalu will never be the same … 1 Borneo will be an address that offers bold distinction and uniqueness for both retailers and shoppers alike in a vibrant and exotic destination.

The design is way too plain, perhaps the building can go for fancier look, concrete cover is getting boring nowadays. What's with the blue roofing anyway?
