Remajaya Sdn Bhd, Malaysia’s leading developer of premium serviced apartments and luxury residential homes, launched its 70 units of luxury serviced apartments at Bay Suites last Friday.
The Bay Suite building is 35 stories high, with a unit height of 442 feet. It is divided into commercial residential and residential areas. Its new 70 units range from 659 sq ft to 1,800 sq ft, with prices ranging from RM500,000 to RM1.5 million, with 2 bedrooms and 1 living room to 3 bedrooms and 2 living rooms.
According to Remajaya Sdn Bhd Managing Director as well as Sabah Housing and Real Estate Developers Association (Shareda) president, Datuk Chua Soon Ping, the major tenets of this plan include making Kota Kinabalu cleaner, greener, more vibrant, more beautiful and most importantly more livable.
“With this in mind, Kota Kinabalu will be a sustainable city adopting the philosophy of green environment and development. Which Remajaya has implemented in the development of Bay Suites. Remajaya plays a part in contributing to the goal of Kota Kinabalu becoming a sustainable city as we too believe in sustainable practices in the building environment by choosing to incorporate green and eco friendly in the architecture in the design of our buildings the initial construction cost will be more but the cost of maintenance in the remaining life cycle of the building will be at it’s best cost and energy efficiency,” he added.
Bay Suites is a combination of green and intelligent technologies. The residence is designed with the latest technology from Japan and manufactured in China to solve the problem of water leakage in ordinary houses.
Even the water guns used in the toilets are intelligent. The Bay Suite also uses smart locks, and from the moment you step into the door of the residence, it is like stepping into a train of advanced technology.
The launch was attended by the Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Masidi bin Manjun and took place on the first day of the PH Expo 2022 at the Sabah International Convention Centre(SICC).
The minister said urbanisation brings in other negative consequences such as the heavy dependence on foreign workers, pollution, traffic congestion, and environmental degradation. Developers should play a crucial role in this evolution by their capacity to meet the challenges of global urban sustainability and develop the tools needed to create resilient and sustainable livable cities.
The best building contributes to its situation not merely by its iconic nature but by assuming its urban condition as an active participant in the complex dynamics of the urban work, life, and play experiences. This has resulted in mixed-use developments by providing shops and offices on the lower floors and locating living accommodation on the upper floors.
“Here in Sabah, we deserve no less from responsible developers to lead and show the way to think out of the box and to give better design thoughts in the area of high rise living,” he added.
