Great Eagle Holdings Introduces New Waterfront Residential Development “ONTOLO” In Pak Shek Kok, Tai Po
HONG KONG, 20 September, 2018 – Great Eagle Holdings announced today that its latest residential project has been officially named “ONTOLO 朗濤”. The project is located at No. 7 Fo Yin Road, Pak Shek Kok, Tai Po1, adjacent to the Pak Shek Kok Promenade. It sits amidst magnificent natural landscapes2, and offers panoramic views of Tolo Harbour2, the green rolling hills between Ma On Shan and Pat Sin Leng2, and the scenic Kau To Shan on the inland side2. Within walking distance of the innovative tech hub Hong Kong Science Park, and near the heart of knowledge – Chinese University of Hong Kong, ONTOLO sets a new standard for high quality waterfront living in Pak Shek Kok.
Mr. Alexander Lo, Executive Director of Great Eagle Holdings Limited stated, “As one of the Group’s key development projects, ONTOLO builds on our 40-year expertise to steer a new development model based on innovation, sustainability, unique design and exceptional quality. While having our roots in Hong Kong, we’ve long since expanded our horizons across the globe and continue to develop internationally. We continue to bring the world’s finest designs, materials and ideas to this new project, creating a distinctive waterfront living style. Surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, we combine the project’s extensive facilities to allow a serene environment that residents can call home. I am confident that ONTOLO will become a new landmark in the area as well as another representative work by The Group.”
On the origins of the name ONTOLO朗濤, Mr. Lo added, “ONTOLO is derived from the word ‘Ontology’ – a philosophical study on the nature of being. In our context, this refers to the concept of ‘home,’ which evokes different experiences and sentiments for every individual or family. ONTOLO also plays on the description ‘ON the TOLO Harbour’ to underscore the superior location of the project. The Chinese characters 朗濤 brings about a sense of openness and brightness, and 濤 specifically refers to the project’s panoramic harbour view. In addition, 朗 echoes the names of our existing properties 朗豪坊Langham Place and 朗廷酒店Langham Hotels, inheriting our hallmark of excellence and international renown.”
Ms. Janet Leung, Deputy General Manager of Sales and Marketing of Great Eagle Real Estate Agency Limited stated, “ONTOLO is meticulously designed, comprising eight 14-storey buildings and two 4-storey low-rises, including one- to four-bedroom residential units. Offering 723 spacious and comfortable units2 with expansive glass window and featuring contemporary architectural designs, ONTOLO will be a new icon in the area and will set a new benchmark for quality living. ONTOLO offers a wide range of layouts for standard units, with one-bedroom units accounting for about 28% of the development; two-bedroom units, 35%; three-bedroom units, 27%; and four-bedroom units 10%. The saleable area3 of the units range from approximately 350 square feet to approximately 2,000 square feet. There will be special units with gardens or rooftop terraces, as well as stunning sea view flats2. In addition, the property benefits from a clubhouse4 offering a comprehensive range of facilities catering to the diverse needs of residents. The spacious clubhouse4 blends in harmoniously with its surroundings, and includes a large open area – ‘the Great Lawn’, as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness room, a music room, a multi-purpose room, a banquet hall, a children’s playroom and an art gallery.”
“ONTOLO is currently awaiting approval for its application of pre-sale consents. We are now actively preparing the sales brochure as well as the sales office and show suites, and expect to commence sales within the first half of next year.”
