Composed of 18 exquisitely designed semi-detached houses, which feature around 425sq m (4,571-4,599sq ft) of saleable area , 23-39 Blue Pool is graced with flexible interiors and much coveted outdoor space, with each five-ensuite home benefiting from its own private entrance foyer, internal courtyard, balcony, flat roof and garage.
The gateway to Jardine’s Lookout – urban living in a tranquil haven
Located on its own private terrace, which has been cut into the eastern flank of Hong Kong Island’s Happy Valley, 23-39 Blue Pool Road is perfectly situated for access to Hong Kong’s bustling Central Business District, which can be reached by car within 15 minutes and is just a five-minute drive from the vibrant restaurants, shops and parks of Causeway Bay.
Thanks also to its proximity to Jardine’s Lookout, one of Hong Kong’s most prestigious and sought-after addresses among elite residents, and the verdant Tai Tam Country Park, 23-39 Blue Pool Road represents a tranquil haven where residents can take a break from the frenetic pace of city life.
The Happy Valley neighbourhood
Happy Valley is home to one of the oldest institutions in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Jockey Club and the Happy Valley Racecourse – world famous for its evening race meetings – but there is much more to this slice of sophisticated suburbia than racing.
Very much an urban village thanks to its unique mix of historic buildings and places of worship, galleries and museums, destination eateries and chic boutiques, Happy Valley combines all the convenience of inner city life with proximity to Hong Kong Island’s national parks, beaches and verdant peaks, making the neighbourhood a firm favourite with singles and families alike.
Not only is the area served by some of Hong Kong’s most prestigious educational institutions, such as the nearby Chinese and French international schools and the St Paul’s and Adventist hospitals, but 23-39 Blue Pool Road also benefits from its proximity to the Hong Kong Tennis Centre and Hong Kong Cricket Club.
Embodying all that is best about urban living, 23-39 Blue Pool Road is more than just a collection of exceptional homes; it is an opportunity to enjoy world-class architectural design in a neighbourhood with a uniquely vibrant spirit, an oasis of calm at the heart of one of the world’s great metropolises.
Enlightened, award-winning design
Designed by the internationally acclaimed design house Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, 23-39 Blue Pool Road displays the highest sophistication of architectural design in each and every one of its details. Its gently folded glass façade, which faces Blue Pool Road, is inspired by traditional Chinese folding screens and contains its own internal system of blinds that are designed to afford privacy while helping to combat the effects of solar gain, thus reducing the need for energy-hungry air conditioning.
Internally, each residence is equipped with its own private courtyard, which not only links with the ground floor kitchen and living areas to provide a seamless flow of interconnected spaces, but also serves to bring natural light and ventilation into the very heart of each home.
A truly innovative response to a unique location, it was the first project in the world to be registered for the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes International Pilot and is also an award-winning development, having been recognised by the World Architecture Festival, the American Institute of Architects and MIPIM Asia for the quality of design, for its impeccable environmental credentials and unique sense of place.
A special collaboration
Envisioned by Hang Lung Properties, one of Asia’s top-tier developers, and designed by the world-renowned architectural practice Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), 23-39 Blue Pool Road is the product of a long-standing collaboration that began in 1992.
A practice with incredible credentials, KPF is responsible for the design of six of the top 12 tallest buildings in the world and has recently garnered international plaudits for overseeing the revitalisation of New York’s Museum of Modern Art and its master plan for Manhattan’s Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in US history.
