Mindful development principles
“With Bukit Bantayan Residences, our aim is to create a vertical community where our residents will have a strong sense of belonging, where families can grow up well and where one can grow old in. The key to this is being mindful. Soon as we set off for masterplan design, laying down the first brick to topping off final layer of cement, much thinking has gone into every process to ensure a strong foundation and a timely delivery of the development for people who call this home, and for those who want to be a part of it,” said Dato’ Sahak, adding that the multiple award winning property developer has garnered increased popularity among the local community.
The developer added that the early delivery is credited to three main factors, namely (i) knowledge and experience sharing between the developer and local contractors (ii) the application of enhanced, greener and faster construction method with aluminium formwork construction system and (iii) Localising manpower expertise and sourcing material locally, contributing to the growth of Kota Kinabalu’s economy.
YB Datuk Hj Jaujan lauded Gamuda Land’s effort in constantly raising the standards of property development. “Early delivery by 6 months ahead and high safe man hours really speak volume of Gamuda Land’s credential. I’m also impressed with the way Bukit Bantayan Residences is designed and built to capitalise on the beautiful surrounding scenery while having all the right components and even retailers locked down in advance for the commercial segment here, to meet and sustain the daily needs of the community. For that, I encourage more developers to adopt and spearhead the approach of placing priority in people and the environment, as it is also one of the Ministry’s missions to improve the overall quality of urban living.”
A community centric development
Comprising of 25 units of shops and located at the podium level that houses wellness facilities such as swimming pool, gymnasium, multipurpose hall and more, Curve 25 is part of Gamuda Land’s placemaking initiative to reinvent public spaces into community places that bring people together. This retail component of Bukit Bantayan Residences serves to create a conducive platform for neighbours to get to know one another, live and play together and ultimately form a tight-knit community.
The developer has also invested upfront in activating the home place, eating place, play place, park place and shopping place. Surrounding communities have been benefitted socio-economically from the recent happenings such as hot air balloon rides and various festive events hosted at Bukit Bantayan Residences. With mooncake festival around the corner, the development is also hosting “Au’some Mid-Autumn” celebration on 7th and 8th September 2019 from 10am to 9pm with a slew of fun family activities such as
Kids Fashion Contest & Singing Competition, Lantern Riddle, 3D Festive Lanterns Display.
