Manhattan Suites at ITCC is a 19-storey serviced SoVo suite wing in ITCC-Penampang, developed by Sabanilam Enterprises Sdn Bhd.
The roof topping ceremony of the completed structure was held at the project site in ITCC on Monday, 10 July 2017, attended by Malakun Holdings Sdn Bhd Executive Chairman, Datuk Seri Panglima Dr Clarence Bongkos Malakun and Managing Director, Datin Seri Panglima Sylvia Wong Malakun.
According to Group General Manager, Mr Ceasar Mandela Malakun, Manhattan Suites was named to emulate the diversity of the population as well as the world class service that is usually associated with New York City in the United States of America. Bringing this concept to this part of Kota Kinabalu will further enhance the lifestyle of the local population as well as making a recognisable impact towards the growing tourism market visiting Sabah.
ITCC is envisaged to be a distinctive world-class development with a comprehensive range of amenities. This landmark development will have a gross built-up area of more than 1.6 million sqft, anchored by a 4-storey 675 units premium retail shopping mall, a 16-storey i-Office Tower, 19-storeys of 295 prestigious residential SoVo suite units and a 19-storey, 330-room, 4-star rated hotel. Located less than 10 minutes away from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, the iconic development will transform the landscape of Kota Kinabalu once completed. ITCC aims to positions itself as a premier business and lifestyle hub in the Greater Kota Kinabalu zone and become a catalyst for growth in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector as its 16-storey i-Office Tower is aiming to secure approval as the first Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Cybercentre in East Malaysia.
Spreading over 10.5 acres of prime land, the integrated development will be a benchmark in high-speed broadband connectivity as it pioneers the use of fibre optic connectivity throughout the whole development. ITCC is envisaged to house incubators and academies to spearhead the ICT industry in Sabah. "We've come to understand the millennial generation's culture of work, play and lifestyle being intermingled and the lines that use to divide these aspects of life are now blurred for a better quality of life. This is where SoVo units can offer a solution" said Mr Ceasar.
ITCC will also feature a grand 32,000 sqft Banquet Hall, which would be able to cater for over 170 dining tables. This will provide the community with a comfortable and modern venue to host an array of events such as weddings and celebrations. The versatility of the banquet hall would also allow to accommodate exhibitions, conferences and corporate events. Manhattan Suites offer 24-hour security and state-of-the-art CCTV for the safety of owners and residents. The doormen, concierge and a live-in residential manager will ensure that the needs and requirements of the tenants are always met.
There will be an executive lounge adjoined to the lush lobby for tenants to conduct informal meetings or gatherings. For a more formal meeting or conference setting, tenants are given priority booking for the use of the meeting rooms. Owners are also given a free 1-year exclusive membership to Club M which shall give them access to the hotel facilities such as the swimming pool, spa and fitness centre. Each unit is provided its own allocated on-site parking spot while other facilities include children's playground and laundry facilities.
