KOTA KINABALU: A new Jesselton Quay Central project is set to change the city landscape, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.

Hajiji said the mixed development project along the city’s waterfront, which was launched on Wednesday, is expected to give the city a new look while capitalising on the sea view and sunsets.

“The Jesselton Waterfront City Masterplan, of which the Jesselton Quay Central and Sabah International Convention Centre are key parts, along with the ongoing developments in this location augur well for quality property development.

“When fully completed, we can proudly say the infrastructure development here and the revival of the city’s old side has paid off,” he added.

He said the project along with its complementary developments within the vicinity will transform this waterfront area into a new-look city destination.

“The proposed plan to develop an international cruise terminal as part of the long-term plan to position Kota Kinabalu as a regional and international water terminal port is now put into place,” Hajiji said.

This joint venture is between government-linked Suria Capital Holdings Berhad and SBC Corporation Berhad.

Hajiji said the state was committed to making Sabah a commercially viable choice for property investment and an attractive destination for tourism.

“The property market driven by private initiatives will further push the economic momentum in the property industry and increase the flow of investments as well as enhance overall economic diversification that will create wider economic opportunities.

“It will also create other economic spillovers,” he said during the Jesselton Quay Central (JQC) Light-Up ceremony here.

He said, as outlined in the Hala Tuju Sabah Maju Jaya development agenda, Sabah’s economic strategy is to strengthen key economic clusters.
