This Sabah development marks Benoy’s first project in the exotic state of Sabah. Positioned as the ‘Gateway to Sabah, Borneo’, the beachfront site spanning 260 hectares will establish a unique and vibrant precinct in one of the country’s fastest growing cities. Located next to the Kota Kinabalu International Airport, the development has been designed as a premier tourism destination and a residential community; forging together distinct character areas, treed beaches, public parks, resort hotels, beach clubs, marinas, entertainment, recreation and dining.

Simon Blore, Global Managing Director, commented that this Borneo beachfront development “is a significant scheme for Benoy, not only as our maiden project in Sabah but also for the opportunity we have been given to shape and transform one of Malaysia’s favourite cities. Our aspiration behind the design has been to create a precinct that is unique in its quality and sense of place and that is imbued with a set of principles that will guide the future of this new district’.
