Externally it has topped off and they're now testing the purple lights, but interiors are far from completion.

The Cullinan is on Emporis, but they list the two at 270 m.

Those look nice together, but i'm not sure about the cladding. It's glassy, which is nice, but what's up with those weird hatches? And the design isn't the best either.

It should be close, you can compare it with the 255m Harbourside. When you have so many towers around 250m+, I guess they have a diminishing effect on each other. Nothing really stands out unless it's much taller (ICC).

Yes, the whole Union Square series of towers really cancel each other out in scale. Spreading them out would've made a more visual impact. Right now it looks like one big square made out of a single huge building from afar.

City's new diamond outshines all others
Located alongside the iconic ICC, HK's tallest residential properties will bring unrivalled luxury and convenience, writes Kenneth Ko

19 September 2007
South China Morning Post

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) hopes to set a new benchmark for luxury residential accommodation with The Cullinan development at Kowloon Station.

Victor Lui Ting, executive director of Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency, said the two residential towers at The Cullinan development would stand out among Hong Kong's high-end residencies.

Both towers will rise 270 metres above sea level, which will make them the tallest residential properties in Hong Kong with the ICC Tower alongside becoming the world's tallest.

Mr Lui said The Cullinan, located on a waterfront site, was the last residential component of the Kowloon Station development, which should draw the attention of buyers and investors from around the world. The project was named after the 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond, found in South Africa in 1905, by Sir Thomas Cullinan. It is recognised as the largest gem-quality diamond ever found.

"To highlight the property's uniqueness, our marketing campaign will revolve around the theme of 'Never Before and New Again.' There is a lack of an equivalent in the market. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire such a luxurious residential property in the heart of the city.

"The Cullinan towers are being built to the highest standards and will be cladded with glass-curtain walls to present a futuristic image that will come into line with the overall design of the International Commerce Centre next door," he said.

Mr Lui said the modern building design and interior layout were well thought out to allow for the widest frontage so that the luxury flats would be able to enjoy open views of garden space and Victoria Harbour. "We have chosen not to include balconies in the project's layout plan. As a result, the apartments can maximise the floor usage and provide the most efficient living space to residents."

Besides The Cullinan, which is still under construction, Sun Hung Kai Properties has completed The Arch, another luxury residential project comprising 1,054 units in four blocks at Kowloon Station. The top-floor apartments at The Arch sold at an average price of HK$33,500 per square foot.

Mr Lui expected The Cullinan to achieve a staggering price of HK$40,000 per sqft for the top floor penthouse units, set to become the most luxurious residential properties in Kowloon.

"Kowloon Station is just a few minutes from Central business district. We have the ICC, two six-star hotels and a major shopping mall, and the area will be a new hub of entertainment and commercial activities for Kowloon as well as Hong Kong," he said. "It is very rare to have luxurious apartments available for sale in such a prime location. The relocation of investment banks and financial institutions into the ICC will stimulate further demand for luxury accommodation in the district."

Mr Lui said the developer was targeting end-users as well as investors for the sale of the project. As demand for rental flats would be driven by the influx of local and multinational companies into the ICC, The Cullinan should provide a good opportunity for investors looking for attractive returns, he said. He said the developer would consider keeping some of the flats in the project for rental and long-term investment.

The Cullinan will provide about 800 luxury flats for sale. Typical units measure in the range of 850 to 2,200 sqft. According to the marketing plan, the developer expects to start selling the first batch of units at the end of this year.

Mr Lui said The Cullinan would also have an international appeal, drawing investors from different parts of the world. "We have seen a number of super-rich property investors in recent years. They are keen to buy the best apartments in different cities around the world and treat them as collection items in their investment portfolio."

Besides residential units for sale, The Cullinan will include serviced apartments at HarbourView Place, and a deluxe hotel operated by the world-renowned W Hotels group.

The HarbourView Place will occupy the 50th to 70th floors of one of the twin towers in The Cullinan, providing long-term leasing accommodation for business executives and expatriates.

Mr Lui said the group intended to achieve an average rental of up to HK$60 per sqft a month for the serviced suites.

New levels of premium living
The HarbourView Place will be Hong Kong's tallest serviced suite complex, offering premier living and convenience

19 September 2007
South China Morning Post

Luxury residential leasing will reach new highs with the creation of The HarbourView Place in West Kowloon.

The Sun Hung Kai Properties' project will be Hong Kong's tallest high-end serviced suite complex and will offer breathtaking views across Victoria Harbour to Central in addition to world-class amenities.

The HarbourView Place's 266 suites will occupy the 50th to 70th floors of The Cullinan II, one of the twin towers that will be the city's highest residential project.

And the old real estate adage of "location, location, location" really does apply in this case as The HarbourView Place will form a key ingredient of the new-look west Kowloon.

The property is part of a wider project that includes the adjacent International Commerce Centre (ICC), to become the world's third tallest building when completed, that is part of the Kowloon Station Development.

Mavis Kang, general manager of Signature Homes, the residential leasing arm of Sun Hung Kai Properties, is confident HarbourView Place will satisfy their guests' requirements for "premier living standards".

"It features a high-quality and comprehensive standard of hotel services to guests, further expanding and enhancing Signature Homes' quality luxury residential portfolio with an additional top-end serviced suite hotel," she said.

"We are confident that The HarbourView Place will be well-received by the market, particularly after our experience with its sister property, Four Seasons Place."

And Ms Kang believes the complex will add to the success of the company's other high-end property.

"We are proud to have been able to witness Four Seasons Place successfully redefining the standard for premium luxury living," she said.

"It is evident that market demand for this type of quality serviced suite hotel is on the upswing, and so The HarbourView Place will accommodate these needs."

It will have about 266 deluxe rooms including studios and one, two and three bedroom suites from 400 sqft to 1,500 sqft.

The HarbourView Place will offer all the services expected of a luxury property of its type.

In addition to comprehensive facilities such as room service, gym and health club, orientation tours and conference facilities, it will have attentive, round-the-clock concierge services.

Guest activities and other personalised services to cater to different needs will also be available.

Guests will have exclusive access to the W Hotel spa and pool as well as the convenience of being located just an elevator ride away from Elements, Hong Kong's largest shopping mall.

Assistant general manager of Signature Homes, Belinda Kuan, said The HarbourView Place will offer unparalleled luxury accommodation for expatriates in Hong Kong.

"We have adopted an uncompromising approach to finish and furnishing, in-room provisioning and facilities, to accommodate the requirements of today's senior executives and their families," she said.

"Business executives and expatriates from multinational corporations across the world will find The HarbourView Place to be the first choice destination on the Kowloon waterfront."

Ms Kuan said The HarbourView Place is the only luxury serviced suite hotel in west Kowloon and that the Kowloon Station Development is becoming a landmark for top-quality living as well as a business hub.

The leasing company is the largest purveyor of luxury residential accommodation in Hong Kong, with a deluxe property portfolio that includes high-end residences in areas like Mid-Levels and Island South.

And the move across the harbour to West Kowloon will not isolate guests as Union Square is already attracting interest from multinationals because of its prime location as a business and transport hub.

"It is the objective of Signature Homes to provide high-quality accommodation for a new era in business in Hong Kong and throughout Asia," Ms Kang said.

The company believes the development will attract senior management predominantly from the finance industry, with the majority coming from Europe and America. And it will be especially attractive to those who work in the ICC.

She explained HarbourView Place will provide superb connectivity and is convenient to a range of quality shops, restaurants and other facilities.

"It is uniquely positioned at the junction of three major rail lines, offering unparalleled transportation access within Hong Kong, its immediate surrounding as a focus of the Pearl River Delta, and indeed beyond for conducting local and international business," she said.

Sun Hung Kai Properties will set a new rental benchmark for luxury serviced suites in Kowloon, with plans to lease The HarbourView Place at HK$60 per sqft.

The proposed price is comparable with rents at top-end serviced flats in traditional high-end districts on Hong Kong Island.

Leasing of The HarbourView Place units will start later this year while the property will be launched next spring.
