The HarbourView Place unveiled
Luxury, suite hotel at Kowloon Station Development

8 May 2007

Signature Homes, Sun Hung Kai Properties' luxury residential leasing arm and the
leading purveyor of luxury residential accommodation in Hong Kong, Miss. Mavis Kang,
General Manager of Signature Homes today announced the name of the tallest luxury
serviced suite hotel in Hong Kong, following its successful project Four Seasons Place Hong Kong.

Located amongst the International Commerce Centre (ICC) complex on the other side
of Hong Kong's Harbour and just 3 minutes away from the centre of Central, The HarbourView Place
will be launched in Spring 2008, and will provide superb convenient as well as luxurious living to
business executives' long term accommodation in Hong Kong. Strategically located atop the
Kowloon Station Development, it will be uniquely positioned at the junction of three major rail lines,
offering unparalleled transportation access for conducting local and international business.

Boasting a unique view of Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula, the luxury suite hotel
will occupy the 50th to 70th floors of one of the twin towers.


"Like Four Seasons Place, The HarbourView Place will offer unparalleled accommodation with the
distinctive quality of luxury hotel services one would expect of a top end serviced suite hotel,"
said Ms. Belinda Kuan, Assistant General Manager of Signature Homes. "The stunning views over
Victoria Harbour and quality of finish will be matched by the comprehensive range of
complimentary hotel-standard services, such as attentive and efficient concierge services
and wide-ranging guest facilities."

"We have adopted an uncompromising approach to finish, in-room provisioning and facilities, to
accommodate the requirements of today's senior executives and their families," said Ms. Kuan.
"Business executives and expatriates from multinational corporations across the world will find
The HarbourView Place to be the destination of first choice on the waterfront, comparable to
sister property Four Seasons Place Hong Kong."

Ms. Mavis Kang, General Manager of Signature Homes commented, "We are proud to witness
Four Seasons Place successfully redefining the standard for premium luxury living; it can be seen
to have been well-received by the market. It is evident that market demand for this type of
quality serviced suite hotel is on the upswing. Consistent with our objectives, this new project
features a comprehensive range and high standard of hotel service to guests, further expanding
and enhancing Signature Homes' quality luxury residential portfolio with an additional top end
serviced suite hotel. The HarbourView Place will definitely offer yet another choice to clients
who already appreciate our commitment to a premier quality of living standard. "We are confident
that The HarbourView Place will be well-received by the market, particularly after our experience
with Four Seasons Place," said Ms. Kang. "There is a marked trend among business executives and
expatriates towards this kind of top end serviced apartment product, and given our knowledge
and experience in the market, we will continue to further expand our luxury residential portfolio."
