26 October 2007
1Borneo, East Malaysia’s First and Largest Lifestyle Hypermall made its maiden debut on the Brunei front 26th – 28th October 2007, Friday to Sunday which was held at The Empire Hotel & Country Club.

In conjunction with their debut, 1Borneo in collaboration with Baiduri Bank has organized an exclusive preview for Baiduri Prestige members on 26th October 2007 from 10am to 2pm. A special financing package and 0% Installment plan can be arranged for Baiduri Prestige and Bank customers.

Headed by the General Manager of Leasing, Ms Jo Beh and the Deputy Director of Sales, Ms Vivian Chu, the overwhelming response was a positive sign of the people’s awareness and keenness to invest in a world class property.  Said Ms Jo Beh “Investors nowadays are more discerning and they look at the overall package.  Without a doubt, 1Borneo has it all.  The project is the largest and most revolutionary in terms of the project size, and various components all under 1 roof.  They are looking for a solid investment with marketability.”

The overall 1Borneo project is 4.8m sq ft in gross area consisting of the Hypermall (in itself 1.3m sq ft), Autocity, Hotels, Condominiums, Oceanarium & Discovery Centre, Handicraft & Cultural Centre, Spa & Fitness Centre, Amusement Centre, Bowling Centre, Gourmet Lane.

The 4 condominium towers totals 1008 units in all.  Each tower comes with its separate swimming pool where Towers A & B comes with an infinity pool, cascading waterfall & swim up bar.  The property boasts low density, exclusivity, quality finishes.

The latest and third tower offers units ranging from 1900 sq ft to 3880 sq ft.  Private lifts opens up to a meticulously styled expansive lounge with stunning outdoor dip pool in the duplex units. Privacy & security is assured as the maid can only access to the kitchen area whilst the owner is away backed by a two tier security system.  A solid surface material gives the kitchen a contemporary feel and polished look which blends effortlessly with the main hall.  There is a garage system as well as a driver’s room for each unit owner.

The heavy & tall timber wooden entrance welcomes guests and lends a distinctly local touch to the apartment.  The cool marble flooring comes from a Borneo based local quarry.    Elegantly appointed rooms are spacious & luxurious.  No detail has been spared as residents may opt from the luxurious fabrics on the curtains and superior crafted custom built finishes and furniture.  All bedrooms come with an ensuite bathroom.  Each room conjures a different feel and ambience that is a thrill to the senses.

The luxurious, yet understated residential building was constructed with touches of materials from local indigenous materials to subtly highlight the local aesthetic aspects.  This blends in perfectly with the plush designer interiors.  With the architectural design by ALM Architect and the interior design by Alto Design this urban metropolis will serve as an icon of contemporary design & sophistication unprecedented in East Malaysia.  The tower shall be managed by a professional operator.  All units come with access to concierge, receptionist and housekeeping services. A sky lounge, sky pool and gymnasium are some of the common facilities available.

The Sabah Property Bulletin mentions that there is a return in confidence in Sabah’s property market.  The recent government announcement about the exemption of property gains tax effective April 1st 2007 would definitely propel the property sector. Even before the launch of the third tower, more than 70% have registered their interest with a majority of enquiries from overseas. Investors shall be pleased to note that when they invest in their dream home, it shall be right next door to 4 international & regional chain hotels, namely ACCOR – the European leading brand in tourism & hotels with 2 hotels “Novotel” & “Mercure”, BEST WESTERN – the world’s largest hotel chain with “Best Western Courtyard Hotel” as well as TUNE HOTELS.COM’s “Tune Hotels”.  Residences can boast one of the most sought after addresses in the region.

The complex is the first of its kind in East Malaysia and will be an icon and herald a new era in the tourism, retail & property sector.  Few properties can generate so much excitement, dramatically alter a skyline and elevate a city’s architectural standards.  Few properties can create a new way to play, relax and enjoy.   1Borneo is slated to open by the first quarter of 2008, concurrently with the completion of Terminal 1 of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport.  Upon the completion of Terminal 2 in 2009, the airport shall be able to accommodate a capacity of over 2.7 million tourists and 1Borneo shall be perfectly positioned to cater to this segment.

Come to 1 Borneo where a new lifestyle unfolds.
