Diamond Of Kowloons Skyline Set To Shine

Construction work is almost completed on the territory of Hong Kong's tallest residential skyscrapers in Kowloon.

Named the Cullinan North and South Towers after the world's biggest diamond, the two towers were designed by architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox and developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited.

Standing next to Kowloon's International Commerce Centre and rising to a height of 280 metres, the towers will house Ritz-Carlton and W group hotels along with serviced residential apartments that will epitomise the height of luxury and the Elements shopping mall that will occupy over a million square feet of the project.

Located in Hong Kong's up and coming business district, the Kowloon Station Development which is also home to the worlds third tallest building, the International Commerce Centre (ICC) the project stands on the harbour affording patrons and residents of the towers magnificent views. The site also benefits from excellent transportation links befitting any international business centre and further reinforces Hong Kong's status as an international city.

The towers themselves each have glazed curtain walls with niches dotted about which help to break up the sheer surface and window casements creating grid work across the surface. The clean lines and reflective surface of the curtain walls help accentuate the blue water of the harbour and ties the towers in with the surrounding projects already in place in the district.

There's still plenty of work to be completed on the interiors which promise to be of the highest standards possible so reasonable price tags on apartments isn't likely, but features such as pools, gyms and spas which are usually present in developments of this kind should make handing over hard earned deposits easier for potential residents. That's if what will be a prestigious address doesn't float their yachts which could be conveniently moored in the harbour below.

It looks like the project like the diamond it's named after will be one of the crown jewels in Hong Kong's development crown.
