The RM40 billion Melaka Gateway project developed by KAJ Development will have the construction of its cruise terminal to kick start within the next three months.

This Malacca International Cruise Terminal developed under the largest man-made island project in South-East Asia is slated for completion by 2017 and will be able to accommodate four large cruise ships at the same time.

According to the Malacca Transport, Project Rehabilitation and International Trade committee chairman Datuk Lim Ban Hong, approximately 250 cruise ships are targeted to dock at the terminal per year by 2020 which will give a great economic boost to the state.

“At the moment Melaka only attracts tourists via land, but the construction of this terminal will attract tourists via the sea as well.”

The highly anticipated Melaka Gateway project comes with a marina for yachts, luxury condominiums, bungalows with private marina, tourist eco-parks, theme parks and terminal for cruise ships.

For the development of the terminal, KAJ Development is collaborating with Royal Caribbean, a firm which constructed similar projects in the Miami and New York previously.
