The south of Hong Kong Island has long been a draw for the rich and famous. Business magnates like CK Hutchison Holdings’ founder Li Ka Shing, Sun Hung Kai Properties’ Raymond Kwok, Macau politician Angela Leong On-kei, Hong Kong Telecom’s Richard Li are among those that have an address there
Besides being a spot for great property investments, there are plenty of other reasons why so many are drawn to Hong Kong’s Southside. The peace and picturesque qualities of the district, with its connectivity to both the coastal life and the central business districts of Hong Kong, have made it the ideal neighbourhood.
The coastal town of Stanley in particular has been gaining a lot of attention of late. Once the capital of Hong Kong island, Stanley is now a bustling yet laid-back destination for both tourists and residents alike. There are a number of high-end private clubs, including The Aberdeen Marina Club, Hong Kong Golf Club, Hong Kong Country Club, Aberdeen Boat Club and Shek O Golf Club. Those with children will be delighted to know there are more than ten prestigious educational institutions in the area, such as Canadian International School of Hong Kong, The International Montessori School, Singapore International School (Hong Kong), and St Stephen’s College.
A popular destination, a seafront luxury residential project “ONE STANLEY” developed by K&K Property Holdings Limited will be setting a new standard for super luxury homes in Hong Kong.
“ONE STANLEY, which is located in a rare area in the south of Hong Kong Island, is located in a traditional luxury residential area with a high degree of privacy,” says Tony Cheng, the director of K&K Property Holdings Limited’s investment and sales department. “The scale of the project is rare in Hong Kong Island South in the past two decades, and the degree of rarity is self-evident.”
The project is designed by Robert A.M. Stern and his team at Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA). Robert A.M. Stern, who is behind some of New York’s most iconic residential towers, such as 520 Park Avenue, 70 Vestry, 1228 Madison Avenue and 15 Central Park West. A renowned architect, Stern has won prestigious awards including the American Institute of Architects’ Topaz Medallion, the Vincent Scully Prize, the Athena Award from the Congress for the New Urbanism, and the Richard H. Driehaus Prize for his commitment to incorporating classical theories into his projects.
His latest project, ONE STANLEY, is set to transform the face of Hong Kong’s Southside. It is built with limestone, a material used on some of the world’s most iconic structures and imported all the way from Portugal. The residences stand majestically above Stanley Bay, reminding one of those Greek towns on the islands that climb up the hills, embedding themselves in the landscape. Stern’s design philosophy to create a seaside village like the famous Mediterranean coastal villages, such as Santorini in Greece, Porto Cervo in Italy and the French Riviera in France.
ONE STANLEY has a variety of units to offer different buyers. Out of 82 units at the address, there are 32 sea view detached houses with saleable area of more than 2,700 to 7,000 square feet, and 11 four-storey low-density residences facing the sea that have a saleable area of over 3,300 square feet. The deluxe detached houses come with private lifts, gardens and exclusive roofs. Some even have private swimming pools, with a high degree of privacy, for luxurious living at its finest.
In addition, there will be a total of 155 private parking spaces. Staying one step ahead of the electric vehicle curve, all of those spots will be equipped with electric vehicle charging supply. We hear that units will likely be launched in the second quarter of the year. Visit the ONE STANLEY site for more info on the project or here to learn more about K&K Property Holdings Limited.
