Tebrau Waterfront Residences
As a major new integrated community, Tebrau Waterfront Residences will incorporate waterfront villas and high-rise residential apartments complemented by commercial and hotel uses as well as a new village retail concept, setting a benchmark in the region.
The master plan extends the waterfront into the site, effectively doubling the site's water frontage and creating an exclusive, private-island retreat. Development density is graded to optimise the view of the prime panoramic waterfront.
A village retail hub is designed to reveal the concept of floating boxes inspired by the unique old Tebrau history of 'kelongs', offshore wooden platforms in the water, creating a unique contextual architecture to the old Tebrau village.
A series of interconnected public spaces and key destinations including the village retail hub, activity plaza and marina theatre are connected by pedestrian underpasses, elevated links and waterfront promenades, creating a comprehensive open space network.
Sunken courtyards and boulevards facilitate natural ventilation and sunlight.
