Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront with 2km seamless boardwalk ready next year

KOTA KINABALU: SEDIA chief executive officer Datuk Dr Mohd Yaakub Johari said the KK City Waterfront project, with its iconic features and the boardwalk to be the main attraction for locals and tourists alike, is posed to change the landscape of the City.

He expressed his confidence that the mega-project, which is included under the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC) umbrella, is on target for completion by next year.

Mohd Yaakub said this after a briefing of the project by the developer, Waterfront Urban development executive director Johnson Koh, during the former’s site visit yesterday, along with 25 investors from Japan who have shown keen interest in investing in the state.

Earlier, SEDIA hosted the group of Japanese investors from Tokyo and Hokkaido who made lots of inquiries about investment potentials that are available in Sabah.

“Mohd Yaakub wanted to make sure of the project status and came calling in the evening to the project site. He is convinced that this private project, which is included under the SDC umbrella which took off after the launch of SDC, is on target to be completed by next year.

“He congratulated the company Waterfront Urban Development and their partner, DBKK for the efforts and vision in coming up with this project,” said Koh to the media.

The KK City Waterfront project where progress harmonizes with nature, has been under construction since the launch of SDC by the then Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in Sepanggar, in January 2008.

KK City Waterfront is an integrated residential and commercial development on a piece of three-acre prime coastal land in the heart of Kota Kinabalu city.

Inspired by the beautiful seafront, KK City Waterfront is designed with seamless two kilometres waterfront promenade eco-composite material boardwalk along the coast that allows locals and foreign tourists to take leisurely strolls and be in touch with nature.
