Nice to see some major development on the east of Malaysia

Although this is not a grand developments for present day's standards, it means alot to the locals. Sabah is a state vyer far away from the capital of Malaysia and are often underfunded by the federal government.

This is a town/small city on the fringe of the densest forest in the world. For people more familair with the west side of the world, it is like building something next to the Amazon jungle(although not that extreme)
Also, there is a nearby place called Pulau Sipadan which is rated on of the best place for diving in the world.

Yea, this is one big and important project by Borneo standards.

My friends from KK are all looking forward to the completion of the mall.

Easily the largest mall in Borneo when completed.

Hovercraft service to the mall
Monday July 23, 2007

DESCRIBED as the largest lifestyle hypermall, 1Borneo will have more superlatives attached to its name.

Located some 7km from downtown Kota Kinabalu, 1Borneo’s proponents are making sure those intending to head to the mall will find it plain sailing – literally.

1Borneo will be the first mall in Malaysia and perhaps in Asia to operate a dedicated hovercraft service.

1 Borneo developer Sagajuta Sdn Bhd managing director Raymond Chan said his company was targeting to get its fleet of three hovercraft operating when the mall opened its doors come March 2008.

Initially, each of the 30-seater hovercraft would ply 1Borneo and the Kota Kinabalu water front adjacent to the Warisan Square complex, Sagajuta’s first venture into the shopping centre business in Sabah.

Chan said the 15km journey to 1Borneo would take about 15 minutes by sea across the scenic Likas Bay.

“I am sure those who ride the hovercraft would find the journey to be too short because it will be a thrilling experience,” he said.

At a later stage, Sagajuta will extend the hovercraft services to the Kota Kinabalu international airport thus enabling passengers to avoid peak hour traffic jams.

To cap it all off, 1Borneo will become the first mall in the country to have its own helicopter services for those in search of some serious retail therapy to reach the mall even faster.

“Perhaps those who spend say a minimum of RM3,000 in a single day could be ferried back to their resorts in a helicopter. That would make them remember their stay in Sabah,” said Chan.

Chan said 1Borneo would also be operating a fleet of shuttle buses to ferry passengers from designated points such as hotels and resorts as well as the downtown area to an air-conditioned terminal at the mall.

First public aquarium in 1Borneo
Monday July 23, 2007

1BORNEO will house Borneo’s first public aquarium and ocean discovery centre called Aquatica.

Covering an area of some 2,800sq m Aquatica will showcase over 500 marine life species.

For children and teenagers, 1Borneo would feature playgrounds and entertainment centres spread over two floors.

Sagajuta (Sabah) Sdn Bhd managing director Raymond Chan said: “One of our key target markets are teenagers. When they come to 1Borneo, the parents will naturally follow.”

Chan and his management team have been studying major malls worldwide to come up with various concepts for 1Borneo. Thus visitors will find retail outlets arranged in “thematic clusters.”

The concourse or lower ground floor for example has been designated the market hall/household/services zone that would house the 84,000 sq ft Giant supermarket, the largest in Borneo.

Other major anchor tenants include HSL and SenQ as well as family restaurants such as McDonalds, Kenny Rogers, Ayam Mas, KFC and Pizza Hut.

Those in search of unique bargains can head to Chinatown, a bazaar-like retail area.

The ground floor has been designated the lifestyle precinct where most of the designer fashion outlets as well as a handicraft and cultural centre are to be located.

It will also have a covered and air conditioned al fresco dining area called the Boulevard that links the mall proper to the 3,000 sq m Auto Gallery by state owned fleet manager Angkatan Hebat Sdn Bhd.

Chan said the al fresco dining area would house popular names such as Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Dome, HK Teahouse, Fish n Co, Secret Recipe, Manhattan Fish Market and Thai Express. The first floor of the mall has been designated the family precinct.

Among the shops located at this level is a renowned Australian-based electrical store and Times Bookstore.

The second floor will house the Golden Screen cinema complex with eight screening halls, a 36-lane bowling alley and Singapore-based Raintree Spa.

Aquatica KK



Development of the Aquatica KK Phase 1 site at Likas started earlier this year and construction is well under way. All below ground work is complete, landscaping has started and aquarium tank foundations are being built.
PROGRESS



Aquatica KK is currently developing an aquarium and ocean science discovery centre to be located in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The project is the brainchild of concerned conservationists who aim to promote environmental awareness by exhibiting the ecosystems of Borneo and highlighting both the threats they face and the desperate need to conserve them. Aquatica will function as both a tourist attraction and educational facility featuring large scale aquatic displays and interactive exhibits aimed at all age groups.

The project has been five years in the developing and will be completed in two phases. The construction of Phase 1 began earlier this year at Likas and phase 2 will be a world class attraction in a custom designed area within the 1Borneo development.

Making Sabah a sanctuary for shoppers
Monday July 23, 2007
By Ruben Sario

Sabah would inevitably conjure images of the famed Mount Kinabalu and the diving haven of Pulau Sipadan.

There is also the orang utan, Borneo pygmy elephants and the yearly Kaamatan or Harvest Festival of the Kadazandusun community.

Sabah’s tourism promotion efforts have until now largely focused on the state’s nature and cultural attractions.

That is all about to change and Sabah can take its place among the shopping destinations in Asia in about eight months.

Designer brands like Cortina Watch, Guess, BYSI, Southhaven, Edmundser, Bega, Esprit, Hang Ten, Charles and Keith, Royal Sporting House, Elianto, Tomei, Blush and Salabianca are heading to the state capital.

They are setting up shop at the mammoth 1Borneo hypermall that will open its doors come March next year.

With some 600 shop lots scattered over a total floor area of nearly 140,000sq m, 1Borneo is a tad smaller than Kuala Lumpur’s Mid Valley Megamall in terms of retail space.

But there is more to 1Borneo. The largest shopping complex in Borneo will have four hotels with a total of about 800 rooms slated to be operational late next year.

Among them are the no frills Tune Hotel affiliated with budget airline AirAsia, Novotel and the Grand Boulevard. There are two blocks of 800 mid-level condominiums and the proposed 114 super condominiums. All these will push the total built up area at 1Borneo to a staggering 445,000 sq m.

Jointly developed by Sagajuta (Sabah) Sdn Bhd, a division of construction giant Ramajuta Group and the United Sabah Islamic Association, that owns the 9.4ha site, 1Borneo promises to add another dimension to what Sabah can offer to its 2.5 million annual visitors.

“The push for eco and cultural tourism is fine but shopping is an important element for travellers these days, particularly Asians,” Sagajuta managing director Raymond Chan said.

He reckons the RM1bil 1Borneo is at “the right place at the right time” with the advent of the Asean open skies policy by 2009 and with budget airlines like AirAsia in operations.

Chan said the mall would redefine shopping in this part of the world as about 40% of foreign brands setting up shop in 1Borneo were new to the country.

“Currently when Sabahans want to shop for branded stuff the first choice would likely be Kuala Lumpur. Soon there will be more reason for people from the peninsula to come to Sabah for some serious shopping at 1Borneo apart from the mountain and the islands.”

The immediate catchment area for 1Borneo is Kota Kinabalu’s 800,000 population and those who live within 20 km of the city’s vicinity. Universiti Malaysia Sabah with 16,000 students and staff and the spanking new Federal department complex or “mini Putrajaya” is just a stone’s throw away.

Chan also believes 1Borneo will be big enough to pull in not only those from various districts but also Bruneians.

It comes as no surprise that Sagajuta is targeting 50,000 visitors daily on weekdays and up to 70,000 on weekends when 1Borneo opens. “We are certain there will be numerous repeat visitors,” Chan said.

As construction of 1Borneo reaches its final stages, Chan has assembled a management team that includes Singaporean expert Wong Chee Hwa who has 25 years experience in mall and property management.

Wong, who is 1Borneo's operations manager, said some RM2.5mil has been allocated for advertising and promotions for the few months before and after the opening of 1Borneo. “It will be unforgettable because I want 1Borneo to take off with a bang,” he said.

And after the glitzy opening, those coming to 1Borneo would find a “classy” but affordable place for shopping, Chan said.

“By then Sabah will no longer just be known for its nature but also for some real serious retail therapy,” he added.
