Alamesra Cyber-Eco Township

Poised as Universiti Malaysia Sabah’s township, this is the largest private initiative project in Sabah.

Part of an immense network of mangrove swamp north of Kota Kinabalu, the Eco-cyber township reconciles the enormous pressure to develop while
bearing the difficulty in integrating the natural waterways sensitively.

The scheme broadly diminishes between Jalan Sulaman and the freshwater tributaries effectively acting as an urban buffer.

Grace Point 66 Memorial Park

On the 6th of June 1976, the late former Chief Minister of Sabah Tun Fuad Stephens with five of his cabinet ministers, crashed in a plane en route from Labuan to Kota Kinabalu.

Subsequently a memorial was erected at the marine crash site near Sembulan — christened as the Double Six Memorial.

As part of Sembulan–Tanjung Aru Urban Renewal Scheme, the reclaimed area around the memorial was decided to be an exemplary public domain, one with an inclusive atmosphere but imbued with sensibility.

Community Centre Jesselton (Kota Kinabalu Community Centre)

The idea to build a community centre in Kota Kinabalu, then Jesselton originated from the Committee of the Management of Japanese Assets in 1953. A sum of $67,000 was approved for the construction. A competition among architects for the best design was held. Its closing date was the 30th January 1954. Billings Leong won the competition with the prize money of $500.00. The design of the building was to house basically a basketball court, which is convertible to 3 badminton courts and to have a seating capacity of 800.

In 1955, Billings Leong was appointed by the then Jesselton Town Board to take over the design of the community centre. Billings Leong sought the advice of Standard Steel Pty. Ltd. in Melbourne, Australia on the possible use of steel trusses for the construction. The distinctiveness of the design was the pin based gable frame with a 15 degree pitch.

The steel fabricated framework was sourced from Melbourne, Australia. Tender for the project was signed on the 20th September 1957. The contract to build the community centre was won by China Construction (Borneo) Ltd. The Contract sum was $225,950.00. The contract was signed on the 30th September 1957. Four and a half months was stipulated for the completion of the building beginning from 11th October 1957.

The final sum for the Community Centre, which included among others, a water tank, electrical installation of fans and fittings was $280,730.16. The contribution of $67,000 by the Committee of Japanese Assets was paid directly to the contractor China Construction (Borneo) Ltd.

In March 1958, the Community Centre was officially opened by the Governor Sir Roland Turnbull.
