Jesselton Waterfront City is located at the northern fringe of Kota Kinabalu city at the now largely decommissioned Kota Kinabalu Port area. It is the largest masterplanned development site in Kota Kinabalu city and an important regeneration project to extend the Central Business District (CBD) and transform the old port area into a prime waterfront lifestyle, commercial and residential district.

Today, most port activities have been relocated to Sepanggar Port whilst Kota Kinabalu Port continues to handle non-containerised cargo and international cruise vessels. Realisation of the development plans for Kota Kinabalu Port will see the location enhanced by an international cruise terminal, convention centre and mixed use high-end development.

The subject site commands a strategic position next to Jesselton Point ferry terminal and is a natural extension of the CBD. It enjoys absolute water frontage (South China Sea) to the west, the Signal Hill mountain range to the east, Kota Kinabalu CBD to the south and Likas Bay to the north.

Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) is located approximately 8 kilometres south west of the site and is easily accessible from the site.

Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park is a group of 5 islands spread over 4,929 hectares and located approximately 3 kilometres from the site, accessible by sea from Jesselton Point ferry terminal. It is a popular tourist destination for day trips and currently comprises 4 hotels – Gaya Island Resort, Bunga Raya Resort, Gayana Eco Resort and Manukan Island Resort.
