Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront is an integrated waterfront revitalization master plan that is an important element of the Sabah Development Corridor’s (SDC) blueprint to transform Kota Kinabalu (KK) City into a premium tourist gateway and a premier second home destination for the affluent. Much like other world-renowned waterfronts, KKCW is designed to offer luxurious shopping amenities and opulent lifestyle events amidst a resort-like living experience. Comprising an up-market lifestyle Waterfront Mall, a 365-room super luxurious Waterfront Hotel and 111 units of designer suites, KKCW will be significant in forming a golden tourism belt along the city’s waterfront. The entire development will be linked by a 2.1km Waterfront Boardwalk, one of the longest of its kind in Asia, to convert the KK seascape into a symbol of a new international lifestyle. Along with other SDC mega-projects, including the proposed Kinabalu International Convention Centre (KICC) located near Jesselton Point, KKCW will boost the Waterfront Boardwalk activity, providing vital economic integration for downtown businesses. The Kota Kinabalu City Waterfont epitomizes the hopes and dreams of all Sabahans – and in particular the residents of KK – who yearn for the elevation of their capital city into a revitalized urban neighbourhood with resort-lifestyle living. Simply put, KKCW represents tomorrow’s opportunities for visionaries looking to invest in a promising future.
WATERFRONT BOARDWALKA SEAFRONT BOARDWALK & LIFESTYLE CENTRE The KKCW Boardwalk 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. The purpose-built 2.1km Boardwalk, stretching from Anjung Senja at one end to the Hyatt Regency at the other, completes this star attraction Relentless effort and resources have been channeled into the design and management of the Boardwalk to maximize crowd retention and sustain this new lifestyle-retail DNA. THE BEST PLACE TO VIEW THE SUNSET IN KOTA KINABALU 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.
