Kota Kinabalu city is destined to be a world-class business and leisure destination of the future with the construction of its most ambitious project yet by well-known Malaysian developer, Mah Sing Group.
Kota Kinabalu Convention City (KKCC) is an integrated mixed development spanning 8.4 acres in the northern edge of the city and is envisioned as a premier lifestyle residential, commercial and tourism centre to be designed by international consultants. The project,
with an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM1.4 billion, is ideally located to take advantage of the superb natural features surrounding the city with coral islands, emerald green sea and forest clad hills making up a picture-postcard setting for this much anticipated new addition to the cityscape.
KKCC is the second project by Mah Sing Group in Kota Kinabalu after the successful launch of its commercial and residential project , Sutera Avenue situated in the southern edge of the city centre. Both projects will now play a pivotal role in the evolution of Kota Kinabalu that embraces all the features of an ultramodern city being transformed into an enviable centre for international business and tourism.
MASTERS OF THE FUTURE
The KKCC master plan will include three hotels of 3-, 4 and 5-star standard, a corporate office tower, mall, lifestyle retail shops, F&B outlets and serviced residences. The towers are interconnected by covered walkways with a central arena featuring deluxe recreational and lifestyle facilities.
The serviced residence tower takes full advantage of its coastal location with each unit opening up to scenic panoramic sea views. Augmenting the city's reputation as one of the top tourist destinations in the region will be the luxurious 5-star hotel managed by Pullman Hotels to bring a whole new standard of service to the city's hospitality industry.
KKCC has been meticulously designed to bring a fresh perspective to what a modern world-class city is. And Kota Kinabalu has all the ingredients to make it a reality. It will play a central role in supporting the future of Sabah's tourism industry by providing the necessary products to meet the needs of international travelers and visitors.
Strategically fronting Jalan Tanjung Lipat along the scenic Coastal Highway, KKCC is easily accessible to the city centre, Kota Kinabalu International Airport and a host of iconic city landmarks such as the Tun Mustapha Tower, Atkinson Clock Tower, KK Wetlands, Sabah State Museum and Tanjung Aru beach.
It is connected via an elevated and covered sky bridge to the adjacent Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC), which will be the main centre for convention activities and development of the MICE industry in Sabah. An impressive cruise terminal to cater to the lucrative cruise industry will be situated just meters away to woo international tourists to Kota Kinabalu and the pleasures within the KKCC. Indeed, the KKCC will be the new gateway to welcome the world to Kota Kinabalu and where luxury lifestyle facilities, convenience, and accessibility are met to the highest international standard.
While KKCC offers all the luxurious comforts and facilities of urban living, the natural wonders of Sabah is only a short distance away. In less than an hour, you can be at the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park showcasing some of the most unique animal species in the world, diving among stunning sea creatures, relaxing on a paradise island, or shooting the white water rapids of Kiulu River. For the more adventurous, you can trek to the peak of Mt Kinabalu or explore the jungle trails of Tambunan in search of the biggest flower in the world, the Rafflesia.
Kota Kinabalu Convention City is the quintessence of the world in one city where every need is taken care of to make you feel you truly belong in a city of the future.
