Major development projects in Kuching [Updated Jan 2023]

I’ve listed Major development projects in Kuching here.

These projects have either been announced or are currently under construction already.

In the list below, you can read a bit on the projects, and click on provided links to learn more.


Darul Hana Development Project is massive project which the Sarawak Government has planned for several years already. The project involves the relocation of several villages along the Sarawak river into a more organized and modern environment. Once completed, the layout from the Tun Salahuddin bridge (also known as Toll Bridge) up to the Kuching Court House would be massively changed. The project is slated to be competed in beyond the 2030 mark.


Hikmah Exchange would be the new government office building in the future. Slated to be competed in 2020, the 23 storey building would increase the number of high-rise buildings in the Satok area, changing what now is a more ‘kampung baru like area’ into what would mimic a major commercial area. The fact that government offices would be asked to move here would mean that this area would be congested once the building is operational. Read more about Hikmah Exchange here.


Kuching Isthmus would be developed on 774-acre land near Sejingkat, in which major buildings related to business would be built. Currently, Kuching Isthmus, or The Isthmus as some may call it, already has the Borneo Convention Centre (BCCK), the UCSI Hotel, a marina, and the Sarawak Energy head office, with many more buildings now under plans and being constructed. Once completed, the Isthmus would be one of Kuching’s biggest and most modern Central Business Districts. More about Kuching Isthmus here.
