Lavishness and Opulence - The Palazzo
Roman-inspired luxury homes
The Romans built a great empire 2,000 years ago, but their legacy lives on; a legacy of innovation and vision that is the inspiration behind what is billed as “the most extravagant palace, for those who share the spirit of the elite”.
Welcome to The Palazzo, Hong Kong’s newest luxury residential development that offers Roman-inspired luxury homes and surroundings with only the most spectacular facilities and views the island has to offer.
Some eight years since Leighton Hill in Happy Valley was unveiled to this vibrant city’s elite, The Palazzo is advantageously located near the picturesque International Sha Tin Racecourse and the 2008 Olympics equestrian venue.
In addition, the development neighbours Tolo Harbour and the majestic high-end residential area of Kau To Shan – leaving no doubt that The Palazzo is a crème de la crème of luxury property development that embraces the finest location and views.
Jointly developed by Sino Land Company Limited and MTR, the superb quality and design put into the development have made The Palazzo the most sought-after luxury property for investors and homeowners. It is also considered a milestone in the history of real estate development in Hong Kong.
The Palazzo’s classical European architecture spells lavishness and opulence in every aspect. Among the most palpable reflections of the style is in the ‘Palazzo Derby’ clubhouse. Stretching over 500m and designed by world-renowned Los Angeles-based interior designer Hirsch Bedner Associates, it houses over 100 leisure facilities with signature icons like Roman Bath, Borghese Gardens, Olympic Hall and Piazza Michelangiolo.
The impressive classical European architecture and well-articulated gardens orchestrate a beautiful rhythm of architectural language of space. Hirsch Bedner Associates’ impressive portfolio includes The Fullerton Hotel in Singapore; New York’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel and The Peninsula, and Germany’s and Switzerland’s Park Hyatt hotels.
With six design types, The Palazzo offers 1,375 units with sizes ranging from 648 sqf to 4,178 sqf, with efficient layouts of two- to four-bedroom apartments.
The property also offers over 15 different layouts and over 100 special unit designs to choose from. With the landscapes reminiscent of the open spaces and greenery Louvre and the Versailles, The Palazzo Derby was carefully designed to incorporate all these significant elements into the structure.
The clubhouse and the Borghese Garden, for example, will be presented as two truly unique and illustrious architectures through the extensive use of colonnades, archways and hallways.
The Palazzo is the first project in Hong Kong to use the world famous kitchen appliance brand, De Dietrich. De Dietrich is an internationally renowned brand with a 300-year history and was also the first brand to be endorsed by the King of France.
The De Dietrich products installed in each unit include the new 2008 series “Collection 38” oven, microwave oven, steam oven, induction hobs, Intelligent Control System hood, wine cellar, Espresso machine, washing/drying machine, dishwasher and refrigerator.
With the large-scale infrastructure projects of over HK$53 billion such as Route 8 and the planned Shatin to Central Link, The Palazzo is strategically connected to every part of Hong Kong and the region; it is only seven minutes to Kowloon Station via Route 8, and only 35 minutes to the Hong Kong International Airport.
