Story 13

BY 2010, a mixed seafront development will stand on the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC) in East Malaysia.

The RM500-million (approximately US$156 million) Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront (KKCW),
developed by Waterfront Urban Development in collaboration with Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu
(DBKK), will feature a 2km-long boardwalk built on stilts above the sea using eco-friendly materials.

Located on the waterfront of Kota Kinabalu City centre along Jalan Tun Fuad Stevens, the
development, when completed, is expected to become a thriving waterfront pedestrian walkway that will seamlessly connect a variety of retail, lifestyle, residential and hotel establishments.

WUD managing director Reymee Mohd Hussein revealed that the project will incorporate
environmentally-friendly features like high-tech LED lighting, energy-saving air-conditioning systems
and solar-powered pedestrian lighting along the boardwalk.

He said: “The development is in line with SDC’s and DBKK’s overall urbanisation and development
master plan, which is primarily to increase the role of coastal cities as catalysts for modernisation and development in Sabah. Designed “to be comparable with other worldclass waterfront developments”, Reymee added that “the project will no doubt attract higheryielding tourists”.

The KKCW is expected to spur economic growth for the Sabah capital and provide employment
and new business opportunities to local residents and businesses.
