(The Star) Construction of high-end project ahead of schedule

KOTA KINABALU: Buyers of the high-end Bukit Bantayan Residences may get their keys earlier as the project is due to be completed ahead of schedule.

The project in Inanam near here is property developer Gamuda Land’s first condominium development in Sabah.

Gamuda Land chief executive officer Ngan Chee Meng said construction was proceeding faster than expected.

“We are confident of handing over the keys to our customers earlier,” he said during the topping up ceremony for the construction which had reached the 26th floor on Feb 7.

The first phase comprises three towers, namely Ebena, Cemara, and Dilenia Tower.

“The non-bumi lots have all been sold for the first tower and for the second, 85% of units have been taken up,” said Ngan, adding the third residential block will be launched next month.

Asked whether Gamuda plans to have more projects in Sabah, he said that was part of their long-term goal.

“We will build residential units according to the needs of the locals and take into account the affordability factor,” Ngan said.

The development spanning over 7ha, would be built in phases.

The residences aim to provide buyers not only comfort and security but also tranquil living as the towers will be facing greenery and the seafront.

The unit sizes range from 904sq ft to 1,100sq ft.

Bukit Bantayan Residencies will have facilities like shoplots, green canopy walks, infinity pool, barbeque area and gymnasium.
