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.
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.
