Waterfront project for Kota KInabalu
The east Malaysian city of Kota Kinabalu has unveiled plans for a waterfront development that’s likely to become a tourist attraction.
The RM500 million Kota Kinabalu City Waterfront is an integrated mixed seafront development situated on the waterfront of the city centre, a Bernama report said.
Expected to be completed by 2010, it will feature a two-kilometre long boardwalk built using eco-friendly materials rising above the sea on stilts.
“The waterfront will feature one of the longest city waterfront boardwalks in Asia and is poised to become the city’s prime tourist attraction, making it an integral part of Sabah’s hospitality industry,” an official was quoted saying.
