A magnificent boardwalk spanning 2 km allows locals and visitors to enjoy the view as well as the various exciting events that will be held in that location.

Swiss-Belhotel has hands full with new projects
Business Times Monday, June 22, 2009, 02.58 PM

THREE hotels and a serviced residence are keeping Hong Kong-based hotel management firm Swiss-Belhotel International (SBI) awfully busy in Malaysia.

SBI, which will open the five-star Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas and Spa Sepang in December 2009, is also working on three other hotel projects which are under development in Pahang, Sabah and Kuala Lumpur.

In Pahang, SBI will manage a 515-room Swiss-Belhotel Zenith Kuantan together with a convention centre that can accommodate 6,000 people. The hotel, slated for opening in October 2010, forms part of the Putra Square Kuantan being developed by Zenith Aim Sdn Bhd.

SBI's director of projects and developments for Malaysia, Carlos Velho, is excited about the project as he feels the opening will fill an existing void in the state capital - the need for a five-star city hotel with convention facilities.

"There is no facility equal to this in Kuantan and its opening will bring the meeting, incentive, convention and exhibition business to the convention centre," Velho told Business Times in an interview.

Accordingly, Velho expects occupancy to touch 80 per cent in the first year of operations - a commendable figure for a new hotel. It hopes to garner an average room rate (ARR) of between RM180 and RM230 per night.

The project in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah is a 335-room sea-fronting five-star hotel. The hotel, to be named Grand Swiss-Belhotel Kota Kinabalu, is owned by China based i-Zenith International Pvt Ltd.

This hotel forms part of the 1.22ha Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront integrated mixed development by Sunsea Development Sdn Bhd. The project will also house a 400,000 sq ft retail space and another 100 units of designer suites.

To be ready in December 2010, Velho expects this hotel to draw a foreign crowd who will help fill up its projected 70-75 per cent average occupancy in the first year. It hopes to achieve an ARR of RM350.

The hotel complies as a green building, and thus expects that while cost of construction may be higher, its cost of operations will be lower from water harvesting and savings on lighting and air-conditioning (typically the highest cost after wages).

In Mont Kiara, a 584-unit Swiss-Belhotel Mont Kiara Suites and Residences is being built by a public-listed company.

Meanwhile, The Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas development in Sepang will open its doors December 2009.

Velho said that reception to the project was so good that it had to increase the number of villas to 399 from 366.

The project guarantees a return of 8 per cent in the first and second year and to gradually improve from the third year onwards.

The villas, which have all been sold, is leased back by the developer of the project Sepang Gold Coast Sdn Bhd's unit Sepang Duta Sdn Bhd.

Sepang Gold Coast is a 70-30 joint venture between CNI Corp and Permodalan Negeri Selangor Bhd (PNSB)

Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront







Only energy-efficient future Sabah buildings
Published on: Saturday, October 03, 2009



Kota Kinabalu: The State Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry may propose to the Cabinet to ensure future government buildings comply with the Green Building Index (GBI) regulations.

Its Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said present buildings like Wisma Tun Fuad Stephens where his office is situated are not energy efficient unlike in other countries where aspects like air-conditioning are prioritised.

"In Japan, during certain seasons, the building temperature is kept at around 26 degrees but you go to my office, you will be freezing. How can you work when you need to wear warm clothing?," he said.

Such situation could not be helped for old buildings, he said, but that he would be more than happy to propose to the Cabinet that all government buildings (in the future) be GBI compliant.

Meanwhile, Masidi commended the developer of Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront (KKCW), Sunsea Development Sdn Bhd, a subsidary of Waterfront Urban Development Sdn Bhd (WUD), which is working together with City Hall on the Go Green Campaign for the mega project launched on Friday.

It made KKCW the first property development in Sabah to be built in compliance with the GBI regulations and Masidi hoped other property development companies emulate the move to comply with GBI regulations.

GBI is Malaysia's very own rating for Green Buildings.

Masidi said the project was initially shrouded in controversy and it took two years for him to be convinced.

"I'm a bit difficult to deal with but I believe in certain principles and disciplines É I am glad to hear that the KKCW project is going green. You have done more than what I have asked," he said.

"This building was shrouded in controversies but (now) we can eventually say it can be an icon," he said, adding that, "there is money to be made from green".

According to him, to create a city its buildings must have character in order to leave behind a legacy for the future.

"There will be more buildings coming up in the future but they must comply with the law, there are no two-ways about it.

"We have to change our mindset when developing something for the people and not just keep thinking of profits. At the end of the day, it is all about the quality of life," he said after launching the KKCW Go Green Campaign at Le Meridien.

Masidi also commended Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim for setting a high benchmark for future Mayors to follow.

"I am glad City Hall has started the ball rolling and hopefully other municipalities in Sabah will follow," he added.

KKCW Is First Sabah Property Development Project With Green Accreditation
October 02, 2009 16:33 PM

KOTA KINABALU, Oct 2 (Bernama) -- The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront (KKCW) project is the first property development in Sabah to be built according to regulations under the Green Building Index (GBI).

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said the project, jointly undertaken by the Kota Kinabalu City Hall and Sunsea Development Sdn Bhd, paves the way for other property development companies to voluntarily comply with GBI regulations.

Sunsea Development Sdn Bhd is a subsidiary of Waterfront Urban Development Sdn Bhd (WUD).

"We have to change our mindset when developing something for the people and not just keep thinking of profits.

"At the end of the day, it is all about the quality of life of the people," Masidi told reporters after launching the KKCW Go Green project here Friday.

Asked as to whether the government would also consider seeking GBI accreditation for government buildings in the state, Masidi said he would propose the matter to the state cabinet, especially for new structures.

Meanwhile, Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim said new buildings in the city, especially mega projects, would soon need to obtain GBI accreditation to ensure the Kota Kinabalu environment was protected.

"We have been telling everyone that Kota Kinabalu is a nature resort city. We will soon require buildings to be eco-friendly, including planting trees surrounding projects," he added.

Earlier, WUD chairman Datuk Abdul Ghani Abdul Rashid said the company felt responsible towards ensuring that Kota Kinabalu preserves its natural beauty with the two kilometre waterfront boardwalk being built.

"We are helping to develop Kota Kinabalu as a nature resort city, as more often than not, it is the first entry point into the state.

"We have to show that while developing this project, the natural surroundings are also being preserved," he said.

Abdul Ghani said the boardwalk would be constructed with techwood planks made of rice husks and recycled plastic.

He also said the KKCW would use a rainwater harvesting system to reduce tap water consumption to water the landscape.

According to Abdul Ghani, other energy efficient technologies include the use of a thermal insulated glass facade to reduce solar heat and reduce energy cost for air-conditioning and a Concealed Refuse Compaction System for its waste management.
