Lahad Datu is the gateway to the world renowned Danum Valley Conservation Area, the abundant flora and fauna of Tabin’s Wildlife Reserve and the mysterious Madai Caves
A new retail and commercial development, the ‘Lahad Datu Harbour Town’, is poised to transform this town into a prime destination for avid shoppers and trend-setters residing on Sabah’s east coast.
Dato’ Chin Kain Sim, is one of the Directors of Tower Lodge Sdn Bhd, which is the developer of the Lahad Datu Harbour Town project.
Tower Lodge Sdn Bhd is managed by Chin, and his two other partners, Dato’ Christopher Lim and Fong Sin Lon. It is a subsidiary of the Seng Group of Companies based in Kuala Lumpur led by Dato’ Dr Lim Lee Seng.
The Group has recently expanded its interests in Sabah through the efforts of its subsidiaries, namely Tower Lodge Sdn Bhd and also KOPORIM Marketing Sdn Bhd, whose most recent project has been the development of KK Taipan Commercial Centre in Inanam New Township, a 14-acre commercial development comprising of 117 units of shop-office.
It is currently under construction and is slated for completion in the end of 2008. Prior to this latest project, Tower Lodge has studied Sabah’s local market trends and found that the bulk of Sabah’s retail and commercial developments are concentrated on the west coast region.
With ongoing efforts by the State government to transform the Lahad Datu township into the main distribution centre for Sabah’s East Coast Division, the development of Lahad Datu Harbour Town will become the crucial link that integrates between various key nodes of the township, with Lahad Datu Harbour Town as the new central hub for Lahad Datu’s business meetings and leisure entertainment activities.
Upon completion, Lahad Datu Harbour Town will be a futuristic commercial centre comprising of 10 blocks of retail and shopping outlets – will overlook the town’s scenic harbour.
It will offer varieties of shop outlets set in a pleasant natural environment, with a myriad of business opportunities ranging from the fashionable, high-end retail outlets to the laid-back, coffee-culture establishments currently popular amongst the modern day consumers. The unique design of Lahad Datu Harbour Town is that it is a low-rise development comprising of various blocks ranging between two-storey to four-storey buildings only.
Each of the separate blocks has its own distinct character, and the variety of distinctive building facades makes it easier for shoppers to navigate themselves through the Harbour Town’s plaza.
An interesting feature of Lahad Datu Harbour Town will be the incorporation of interlocking umbrella-like roof structures that not only create ground cover but also an attractive feature of this new retail and commercial outlet.
It will be an aerial landmark as well, resembling a futuristic sea craft transporting goods to the town of Lahad Datu, an ode to its maritime port. The design of Lahad Datu Harbour Town’s commercial blocks have also taken into account of the future needs of the tenants as well as the image of the establishment as the new top retail destination for Lahad Datu.
The shop lots are especially designed to allow for pipes and services to be hidden yet accessible for inspection by the tenant and local authorities as needed – another milestone for sustainable commercial architecture in Sabah.
Architecturally and commercially, the upcoming development of Lahad Datu Harbour Town is aiming for new horizons, as it breaks exciting new ground in Sabah’s local retail and commercial development industry.
It is primed to transform the image of Lahad Datu from a sleepy palm-oil based industry town to the top choice retail and commercial destination, and will provide the much sought-after modern shopping environment for the consumers of Sabah’s East Coast.
