Why would you name a middle/upper-middle class development as the habitation of a hemit?

Not many are going to think of The Hermitage in St. Petersburg...
I thought of St petersburg at once - i was fooling around there some weeks ago :P

stupid names really for residential projects - who would want to live in a museum anyway?

joking apart... i still think these names are so meaningless.

Yes, but you're odd (as we are all on a Skyscraper/urban/architectural forum). I doubt the average Hong Konger or Mainlander - i.e., the proposed consumer/buyer - even knows about The Hermitage.

Interestingly, what's the Chinese name for this?

Hong Kong advertisers have no sense of morality or respect for cultures or their origins.

Just today, in this week's issue of Hong Kong magazine, I saw on page 9 an advertisement for a Thai restaurant.

It pictured a sleeping Buddha resting, with a speech (dream) bubble saying: "Hmm, where can I get a good Tom Yum Goong?"

It'd be offensive if it were a Buddisht monk, nevermind Buddha himself.

This angle from Beacon Hill gives a whole new perspective of HK skyline. Lovely.

領都1688伙沽清 眾新盤接力
10 August 2009
香港經濟日報

  長實(00001)旗下將軍澳日出康城2期領都,昨日宣布1,688個單位全部沽清,數大型新盤部署接力推盤。其中較矚目的項目是新地(00016)牛池灣峻弦、信置(00083)西九龍The Hermitage及港鐵(00066)大圍維修車廠上蓋項目名城1期等,涉及逾2,900個單位。

  據了解,雖然上述3個項目仍然在申請預售樓花同意書,但是發展商正加緊部署銷售前期工序。以新地旗下牛池灣豐盛街峻弦(723伙)為例,上月中便在不同地點推出宣傳廣告,希望盡早將項目的信息帶給買家。

峻弦The Hermitage待批售樓紙

  有區內地產代理透露,峻弦示範單位設於中環國金1期,裝修工程已經完成,只待批出售樓紙便可推出市場發售。

  其次,信置牽頭發展的西九龍The Hermitage(852伙),示範單位設於奧海城商場。市場透露,信置部署月內推售沙田御龍山約260伙餘貨後,最快下月推售The Hermitage,尚待收到售樓同意書後才定出最快開售日期。

  至於長實旗下港鐵大圍維修車廠上蓋項目名城,項目提供1,360個單位,主攻換樓客,發展商部署最快10月推售。

  另一方面,長實旗下將軍澳日出康城2期領都全部沽清後,由於市場仍有不少向隅購買力,故發展商部署重推日出康城1期首都的餘貨。代理估計首都約100個單位沒有如期完成交易,主要集中第3座,發展商最快今天重推,售價比去年減20%,兩房單位最平入場費低於300萬元,3房單位入場費約400萬元,與領都售價相若。
