Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront, The place to be




Latest version



“A New Standard In Luxury Retail And Resort Living
By A World Class Seafront Broadwalk”


Broadwalk & Lifestyle Center

The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront is slated as a World Class development on par with the best boardwalks and lifestyle centers. It is envisioned to offer a new and vibrant urban street-space atmosphere in the heart of Kota Kinabalu. The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront is a shopping center and commercial development that combines the traditional retail functions of a shopping mall with leisure amenities catered towards upscale consumers and tourists. It is designed to be a ‘unique urban village’ - a vibrant place where community takes shape and public life happens.

Imagine, watching a jazz singer drawing an audience - serenading to passing onlookers amidst a fresh breeze overlooking a spectacular sunset. The entire boardwalk will feature an urban maze with arches that decorate the marketplace with restaurants and stores lining an outdoor pedestrian street that opens up onto a series of little plazas.

The type of place one would delight the palate with a cappuccino.

World Class Vision

The waterfront project is the brainchild of the Sabah State government and a pool of Malaysian visionaries. The project will see a multitude of luxury retail and lifestyle developments along the famous Kota Kinabalu waterfront by transforming it into an environmentally friendly boardwalk along the seafront to become a thriving pedestrian walkway.

The waterfront project is envisaged to have similarities with world-renowned waterfront projects like the Darling Harbour Waterfront Project in Australia; which has a combination of strategically located seafront properties along its pedestrian boardwalk, harbour side shopping center and other pedestrian friendly features. Likewise, the Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront aims to be amongst the world's great seafront destinations.

Shopping & Lifestyle

The overall development is located along the seafront totalling approximately 8.6 acres spanning over a 2km boardwalk above the sea. The entire development will be linked via a 30 - 100 foot wide pedestrian boardwalk, built on stilts above the sea. It lines the Kota Kinabalu seafront and is poised to be the heartbeat of the project.

This boardwalk is designed to house specialty stands, pizzerias, souvenir shops, beach gear stores, sidewalk cafes and fun parlours drawing families, teenagers and adults alike. The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront boardwalk is book-ended by two ‘Lifestyle Centers’, with both developments facing the seafront boardwalk, with outdoor staging areas, a luxury all-suites hotel, a retail complex and a host of alfresco-style dining and entertainment outlets. There will also be an urban ‘luxury fashion’ mall, an international hotel and fine dining restaurants.

Retail Experience

The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront is a great example of taking the successfully realized attributes of a lifestyle center and integrating them into an actual urban neighborhood requiring revitalization. Recent studies suggest that the shoppers and consumers of today, are really hearkening back to their own childhood experiences and want to seek out the next-generation retail environment as a true community and town center experience.

The defining characteristics are a mixture of stores - upscale retailers and open-air layout with elegant stores and chic boutiques to exquisite dining that will become a unique tourist attraction from its very onset

• The seafront grand entrance to the retail area is reserved
exclusively for flagship outlets which will enjoy exclusive seafront
vantage. This is a unique aspect of the Kota Kinabalu City
Waterfront’s inspiring retail concept.

• The high ceilings and quality finishing will enhance the shopping
experience.

Luxury Residential Suites

• New age luxury suites designed for the discerning.

• Its waterfront location provides city dwellers resort-living in the heart
of Kota Kinabalu.

Luxury International Hotels

• Luxury hotel and boutique villas will dot the development.

• Amongst the unique features of the hotel is an infinity pool with a
glassed perimeter facing the seafront attached with a pool terrace
for dining and entertaining.

Harbour City
It's All Happening Here




Harbour City, a mixed commercial development project, is poised to transform the Sembulan skyline. Situated directly across from the Sutera Harbour Resort in Kota Kinabalu, the development covers 62 acres of prime land with an exceptional frontage along the Coastal Highway as well as Jalan Sembulan. The completion of the nearby flyover will create smooth traffic flow into the area. Its developer, Paduan Hebat Sdn Bhdis confident that its maiden venture will succeed with its affordability, location, design and concept.

The first phase of the development covers 8 acres and will comprise of retail outlets and business offices. A unique design concept incorporates a central air conditioned covered walkway on the first floor retail outlets and allows for an awesome frontage of 1000 metres with maximum advertising exposure along both the Coastal Highway and Jalan Sembulan, a high traffic zone in Kota Kinabalu.

The venture also includes a 300-room hotel. With the current optimistic Tourist Arrival statistic for Sabah, and the projection for ever further increase due to more direct international flights from various countries, the demand for hotel rooms and other tourism-related products, including shopping, will definitely put Harbour City on the right track along with Malaysian Government's Haven. The Sabah government too, has committed itself to more modern infrastructures to meet the demands of a growing community.

When completed, Harbour City will boast an excitingly-designed shopping mall, business offices, service apartments, convention centre, entertainment venues and the hotel. It will have the latest and modern conventional hall equipped with all facilities to compliment every requirement for a successful business meeting. There will also be ample parking facilities.

Located just 5 minutes drive from KK City Centre and 10 minutes from KKIA, the matured township will have immediate population catchments. It is surrounded by a very large and affluent customer base a captive market of both targeted customers and investors. Its central location means that it is surrounded by existing businesses, restaurants, government offices, medical centres and the nearby commercial hubs of Karamunsing, and Tanjung Aru. Supported by a host of viable amenities and facilities within Harbour City, investors may anticipate excellent returns on their investment and future capital appreciation.

The RM350 million project is a joint venture development between Paduan Hebat Sdn Bhd and state-owned MLGH Sdn Bhd. The project turnkey contractor, Evermaster Group Berhad is a listed company. The project would be launched later in the year.

Segama Waterfront

Sabah Tourism Board


The latest City Hall's pocket park, called 'Segama Waterfront', has potential to become a popular spot for city dwellers and tourists, said National Landscape Department Deputy Director-General, Mohd Taib Zin.

"Developing the landscape for the park is another landmark for Kota Kinabalu. With its strategic location near the sea and surrounded by commercial buildings, I believe this park has potential to be an asset to Sabah's tourism industry," he said.

Mohd Taib, who represented National Landscape Department Director-General Dato' Ismail Ngah, said this at the official launching and deliverance of Certificate of Practical Completion (CPC) of Segama Waterfront at Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens, here, Friday night.

Also present were Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim, City Hall Director-General Datuk Dr. Chua Kim Hing, National Landscape Department Director for Development Division, Suhaili Yusoff, and other City Hall officials.

According to Mohd Taib, construction of the RM1.9 million park over one acre commenced on March 27, 2007 and it was completed on June 30, this year but opened for public use in July this year.

"The overall design of the park is based on a concept of marine life and among the facilities provided are decorative pathway for visitors, seats, lights, marine ornaments, observatory platform and shaded trees.

"These facilities are uplifting the scenery view of the park," he said.

With the completion of the project, Mohd Taib said City Hall is responsible for the cleanliness, safety and maintenance of the park.

Meanwhile, Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim said City Hall is committed to beautify and upgrade the city's landscape, which is one aspect of its master development, so as to give a positive first impression to visitors and tourists coming to Sabah.

Segama Waterfront, he said, is one of the projects realised through funding from the National Landscape Department.

"We are very thankful to the National Landscape Department, under the Federal Housing and Local Housing Ministry, for all the funding that enabled us to materialise our development projects and further improving the city's landscape.

"Apart from the Segama Waterfront, we have carried out several landscaping projects through the department's allocations, such as upgrading of Jalan Sulaman-UMS Kota Kinabalu, beautifying Tanjung Aru and developing a public park for Likas Bay that is in progress and to be completed end of this year," he said.

Jesselton Point
One Stop Marina Destination


@flickr photos

LOCATION
The boat terminal is located north of downtown Kota Kinabalu. It is possible to walk to this terminal if you are staying at nearby city hotels like Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu or Hyatt Regency Kinabalu. Otherwise, if you are staying in other resorts south of the city such as The Magellan Sutera, The Pacific Sutera or Shangri-la Tg Aru, it is best to get a taxi which will set you back anywhere between RM10 to RM15 per journey.

To be exact, this ferry terminal is located close to Wisma Sabah, Grand Port View building, or marine police and custom offices.

DESCRIPTION

The newly refurbished passenger ferry terminal has been re-branded as Jesselton Point. Jesselton is pretty much the old name for the city of Kota Kinabalu. I recalled back in 2003 during my visit, the ferry terminal was pretty much set in an old and sombre condition with dilapidated buildings and inadequate facilities. Today, the terminal has been redesigned into colourful commercial outlets with great tourist facilities for those heading to the beautiful islands in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park nearby, namely Pulau Gaya, Pulau Sapi, Pulau Manukan, Pulau Sulug and Pulau Mamutik. This ferry terminal is also the departure point for patrons staying at either Manukan Island Resort or Gayana Resort.

The buildings are painted in bright orange colour to breathe a new life into the area. In fact, it is not an understatement that the Jesselton Point project was quite an example of urban rehabilitation programme in this fairly tired-looking city of Kota Kinabalu. It exemplifies the usage of the city's main natural attraction, its spectacular ocean view, to draw the crowds from near and far. Nonetheless, with the re-branding concept finally unveiled to the public, boat passengers to the nearby islands (and even to Labuan) will have to fork out more for this so-called "port tax" of RM3 per person per way. But really, if you are spending hundreds for packaged snorkeling, diving or sightseeing tours to the many islands, that amount does not seem like much.

At the main entrance, there is a nice archway that welcomes you to the city. On the walls are various dated photos of the city's aerial view, some were taken in the early 1900s. There are also two English-inspired telephone booths with their ubiquitous bright red colour although I had no idea what was the purpose of those. There is a nice looking Italian restaurant called Benito Bistro equipped with glassy walls overlooking the dock and the ocean but my dive guide said the food prices were way too expensive. Other than that, there is a featured rail coach taken out from the existing North Borneo Railway service that serves as a drinking outlet called JP Train Station. There are a lot of other smaller cafés with more acceptable food prices apart from souvenir shops for visitors leaving the city.

There is a good waiting area inside the main building equipped with comfortable chairs and cooling air-conditioning. Overall, the boat reception counters are informative when it comes to arranging for last-minute tours of the nearby islands.

Jesselton Point is a great place for a stroll. Some historical perspective blended in modern design. A great one-stop terminal for all your island excursion needs. Come and indulge yourself with the beautiful scenery of Kota Kinabalu shore and our local cuisine at Jesselton Point together with your loved ones while rejuvenate your mind and body after a long and exhausted journey. Remember to include this memorable place in your destination’s list!

the Waterfront
http://www.kkwaterfront.com/




Kota Kinabalu has the enviable fortune of being located on the edge of the South China Sea with spectacular views of emerald islands just off its coast and forest covered hills reaching up towards the highest mountain in South East Asia, Mt. Kinabalu.

Taking advantage of these features is The Waterfront, the city’s premier entertainment and dining centre. Locals and tourists alike have come to regard The Waterfront as the place to be for a casual fun night out with restaurants and cafes serving a wide range of local and international cuisine. Pubs, karaoke bars and a dance club with lively music set the mood for a memorable evening in the city. Borneo Trading Post also provide a wide selection of indigenous and Borneon handicrafts, books and souvenir items.

Within walking distance are the Le Meridien, Promenade and Hyatt Kinabalu hotels as well as a number of budget accommodation. Shopping centres from air-conditioned malls to open-air markets selling anything and everything under the sun are also close by.



Enjoy to best sunset spot in Kota Kinabalu
Away from the frenzied bustle of activities in the city is a quiet stretch of wooden boardwalk along the waterfront. It is relatively void of activity in the heat of the day as people seek shelter in the comfort of air-conditioned cafes and restaurants. As the evening sets in and the cool sea breeze washes inland, it is the perfect place to stroll and watch the sun set in the horizon. Fishing boats drift lazily by as they return from a day out at sea or whiz by carrying day-trippers from the islands back to the city. Three kiosks are strategically located along the boardwalk offering refreshingly cool drinks and local specialties to snack on as you decide which of the many eateries to have dinner at. Pubs and cafes with live bands or deejays spinning tunes from golden oldies to modern day beats start to fill the air. If you need to add more energy to your night out, karaoke bars and a dance club beckon you inside to test your vocal and dancing skills.
