That's fine by me - not much else I do in my room anyway.

See the thing is, when I graduate, I'll be looking to share a place with a room mate. But most places in Hong Kong which advertise as 'two' bedrooms is actually one master/bigger bedroom and one smaller room; what we'll actually need is two rooms the same size.

The concept of 'master bedroom' and the regular bedroom is different in Hong Kong. In fact, for most apartments, the master bedroom only provides a few more tiles of space, and doesn't have an ensuite bathroom. More up-market or larger units of over 700 square feet are likely going to have an ensuite bathroom. But walk-in closets or even closets for that matter are rare. I don't see the term 'master bedroom' used on most floor plans for middle-class dwellings.

Actually good point. I just remembered/realised that in most, or all, of the flats under 700 sq ft without ensuite bedrooms, advertised as 2 bedrooms, the two bedrooms are the same size. I lived in a 660 sq ft flat in Tai Koo Shing back in the mid-90's, and I remember my room being the same size as my that of my parents'.

That's good, I suppose when you're sharing an apartment with a room mate, and we probably won't need a place greater than 700.

There is a bike path in Cyberport...... who is going to bike there? People work there traveling between office buildings? Obviously, no one would bike up and downhill in and out of Cyberport from anywhere.

Soaking up the luxury
Harbour Green

13 July 2007
South China Morning Post

Harbour Green, developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties, in West Kowloon, has 1,514 units in five towers, ranging from 48 to 56 storeys.

Units range from 600 sqft to 2,150 sqft, from two bedrooms to four bedrooms with two en suite bathrooms, together with CEO Penthouses and simplexes.

The CEO Penthouses, with views of the city and Victoria Harbour, are the two duplexes on floors 47 and 48 of Towers 1 and 2. Each has five bedrooms (four of them en suite), covering a total area of more than 5,000 sqft.

Each penthouse, with panoramic sea views, has a 1,300 sqft living room with picture windows 15 metres wide. The ceiling is four metres high.

The outdoor area of each penthouse is about 5,000 sqft, and can be used as a swimming pool zone, a lifestyle garden or a banquet venue. The ratio of outdoor to indoor space in a penthouse is about 1:1.

The bathrooms in all units have double sinks and come equipped with televisions. Each penthouse has a massage bathtub.

Facilities at the 115,000 sqft clubhouse include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa area, banquet rooms, a multimedia centre and the world's first CNN Residential Lounge.

The CNN Residential Lounge provides 24-hour CNN news channels, as well as CNN Business Traveller, Design 360, Global Challenges, Global Office, Spark and Talk Asia.

A Cartoon Network Hip Quarters provides entertainment for the children. The play area includes a climbing wall, a maze and cartoon-themed games.

In the first two years after the completion of the development, the clubhouse will provide food and beverages courtesy of a Michelin three-star chef and French food and wine specialists Sopexa.

Harbour Green is near the Olympic MTR station. Residents enjoy great transport convenience, with the Airport Express, West Rail and Route3.

I don't think that proposal will ever be built.

Proposed! Amazingly stunning!!! Eco-city.

Vincent Callebaut Architectures propose...

An Urban Jungle for Hong Kong.
The urban mesh of the Central Business District in Hong Kong is surrounded by the green hills visible from the Victoria Peak in the South and by the sinuous bank of the Pearl River. On the horizontal stratum compressed along the curves of the levels of the precipitous relief, the city structured itself vertically through a field of more or less frayed towers of glass and steel. Hong Kong is one of the more populated territorry in the world with a density of 30 000 inhabitants/kmē. To answer to this overpopulation, the project "Urban Jungle" proposes to re-tame the nature and to widen the territory of the ultra-contemporary city. In the heart of the South China Sea, this "perfumed harbour" will abound in an urban jungle by the renaturalisation of the urban landcape and its extension on Central Waterfront. In the framework of the long lasting development, the goal is thus to increase the real estate availability by setting up an ecologically positive strong print. This means so that the new built spaces are auto-sufficient and produce more energies and biodiversity that they consume!

Nice concept but to me this is a NIMBY. I prefer the HK skyline with the waterfront skyline from Sheung Wan to Causeway Bay
