KUCHING: A commercial centre with a modern concept will be built on the banks of Sarawak River in the heart of Bintawa.

The Royal Bay Commercial Centre when completed by 2017 is geared for classy shoppers around the world.

This ultra modern business entity is a joint venture being developed by KNK Development Sdn and Hardwood Timber Product Sdn Bhd.

Spokesperson for developer Jacky Bong said the commercial centre situated on 6 acres of land had a unique design to cater to high standard of living.

“It’s a place to dine-in and relax while enjoying the exotic scenery of the Sarawak River,” he said when met at the site office of the project in Bintawa on Saturday.

“It will cater for local and overseas visitors who can stop by for some shopping and dining after sightseeing in the city.”

Bong said a three-storey halal Aquarium Theme Restaurant will be a place everyone must visit, as diners watch unique displays of aquatic life in the restaurant’s built-in indoor aquarium.

“The three-storey block restaurant and food court have a total space of 3,800 sq m of ample space to dine in comfort,” he said.

There will be a waterfront by the restaurant with an open concept cafe for dining by the riverside while watching the sunset.

It will be an ideal stop for those cruising the Sarawak River and going to Borneo Convention Centre Kuching by river taxi or water transport and for city folks to be in a different kind of shopping environment.

The three-storey shops with lift facilities and two-storey shops will accommodate shops and information technology centres, bridal shop, gym, fashionable outlets displaying designer clothes, bookstore, entertainment and office showrooms.

Bong said the commercial centre would be the beginning of something new in Kuching City as the industrial estate in Bintawa would be relocated.

Two new bridges will be built from Jalan Demak to link people from Petra Jaya and from Jalan Kruing in the vicinity of BCCK.

Those interested to buy properties at the commercial centre are to note that only 10 units are left out of the total 18 units.
