Jointly developed by Hysan Development Company Limited and HKR International Limited, the low-density luxury residential project in Tai Po today unveiled its name “VILLA LUCCA”. Perfectly located at Lo Fai Road in Mid-Levels with the magnificent mountain range of Pat Sin Leng as a natural backdrop1, VILLA LUCCA commands stunning views of Plover Cove Reservoir and Tolo Harbour1 and boasts meticulous layout and design by internationally renowned architects and designers. Surrounded by lush green mountains and the sea, VILLA LUCCA represents a hidden gem for the privileged few who appreciate the privacy and tranquillity of a mountain retreat and yearn for the discovery of nature and a whole new meaning of home.1
VILLA LUCCA is the first joint development by Hysan Development Company Limited and HKR International Limited. Hysan Development Company Limited has been serving Hong Kong for a century. With its extraordinary vision, professional operations and a commitment to quality and style, Hysan takes pride in creating a remarkable base in Causeway Bay – the Lee Gardens area that features a cluster of premier commercial buildings. HKR International Limited is renowned for the planning and development of Discovery Bay, its flagship upmarket residential project that pioneers the concept of large-scale, low-density, resort-style community living. A joint effort of the two leading developers, VILLA LUCCA exemplifies the best of the best: the development layout, architectural design, landscape and auxiliary facilities; it has literally redefined the market for luxury homes.
Mr. Ricky Lui, Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer of Hysan Development Company Limited, said, “This project is named ‘VILLA LUCCA’ that imbues an Italian flair. VILLA LUCCA nestles in the beauty of nature – mountains, sea and the woods1. Its superb location offers stunning views of Plover Cove Reservoir and Tolo Harbour with the spectacular mountain range of Pat Sin Leng as a natural backdrop1. A leisurely stroll along the winding, tree-lined Lo Fai Road will virtually take you to a hidden village in the Italian city of Lucca.”
Mr. Lui added, “VILLA LUCCA is ideally located in Tai Po with convenient access to the city and Shenzhen’s Liantang Port. Central and Kowloon East CBD are just around half an hour away, and it only takes about 20 minutes to arrive at Liantang Port or the Lok Ma Chau Control Point.2 In fact, Northern Metropolis (being proposed), an essential component of the development of the Greater Bay Area, is also a short ride away – comparable to the distance between Central and Repulse Bay; in other words, only an around 20-minute drive from a CBD to the comfort and serenity of home.2,3 The government’s strategic development of Northern Metropolis (being proposed)3 is expected to drive the market appreciation potential of VILLA LUCCA. Moreover, its proximity to the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park and the Chinese University of Hong Kong will appeal to cross-border businessmen, as well as professionals working in the vicinity.3 Other target buyers include investors and families who cherish quality of life and appreciate spaciousness and fine living."
Mr. Jackie Tang, Managing Director of HKR International Limited, said, “VILLA LUCCA has set a new standard for luxury homes in Tai Po. With a total site area of 340,000 sq ft, the project provides 262 residences – garden houses and apartments ranging from 2 to 5 bedrooms, each with an expansive saleable area of over 1,000 sq ft.4 VILLA LUCCA is designed exclusively for families who appreciate the joy and luxury of space. There have been few new residential projects for many years in the upmarket area of Tai Po where VILLA LUCCA is situated. The project design also caters for every need of its residents and provides ample parking spaces to meet the demand of residents.”
Mr. Tang added, “Immersing in the beauty of nature1, VILLA LUCCA is a brand-new seaview1 luxury residential development and represents a concerted effort of multiple internationally renowned designers from around the world. The world-class design teams include Olson Kundig from the US in charge of design consultant, VIA Architecture Limited and BTR Workshop for interior design, Adrian L Norman Ltd for landscape design, DLN Architects Limited for Authorised Person/ architect, David Collins Studio from the UK for interior design of the resident clubhouse.”
VILLA LUCCA has obtained pre-sale consents and is expected to launch in this quarter.
