The Aeropod project is S P Setia's maiden mixed development project in Kota Kinabalu. Aeropod is the largest integrated linear city in Kota Kinabalu spanning over 60-acre of land. The project embraces S P Setia's development philosophy of LiveLearnWorkPlay and is expected to be a tourist attraction because of its connectivity as a railway hub and close proximity to the international airport.
Once completed, Aeropod will be home to a hotel, retail mall, retail offices, residential suites and corporate offices, as well as green parks.
The projects also include a provision for light rail transit (LRT) in the Kota Kinabalu metropolitan, to improve the already available rail station in Tanjung Aru.
To date, retail mall Blocks C and D - the two blocks facing the main road - have been handed over to their buyers and the OC has also been obtained for the said blocks.
Block H and the SOVO units are expected to be handed over in June 2017 and OC is expected to be obtained 3 months after the handover date. The group will also be bringing in AirAsia and MAS check-in kiosks and free bus shuttles (to the airport and KK CBD area). The decision to incorporate such facilities is to create a more convenient lifestyle for the residents and tenants.
The first residential tower is expected to launch in Q3 2017.
