A major upgrade at Hong Kong Parkview means the interiors of the unfurnished apartments have been made more comfortable and appealing.

Sales director Doris Chan said the group was committed to achieving the highest customer satisfaction and the latest improvements focused on kitchens and bathrooms.

'The refurbishment cost per apartment is about $300,000 and is a reflection of our determination to meet the needs of our discerning customers,' she said.

Contemporary freshness and spaciousness form the key elements of the new design.

Ms Chan said white and silver were used as the basic colours to give a brand new look and feel. 'The bathrooms and kitchen feature top quality European tiles, a la mode aluminium false ceilings and fashionable ceiling lights.'

Exotic additions to the bathrooms include stylish clear-glass shower rooms for the master bathrooms, branded bathtubs and bathroom equipment and large wall mirrors.

'With top quality granite counter tops, and classy Italian cookers and ovens, the spacious kitchens are perfect for displaying your culinary talent.'

Hong Kong Parkview is a unique luxury complex set in the lush, rolling hills of the protected Tai Tam Country Park. It comprises fully furnished and serviced suites and spacious unfurnished apartments, with comprehensive clubhouse, spa and resort facilities.

Ms Chan said Parkview was perfect for short or long-term stays, catering to the needs of a business traveller, a family relocating to Hong Kong, or those who are in between homes.

The 201 luxury serviced suites range from 770-square-foot studios to 1,340 sqft two-bedroom units. The unfurnished flats offer two to four bedrooms, ranging from 1,259 sqft to 3,373 sqft, and each has a spacious living room, large walk-in closet, and brand new bathrooms and kitchen. For added convenience, there is a study, guest bathroom, maid's room and utility area.

'In the fourth quarter of last year, the average unit rental for Hong Kong Parkview bucked the falling trend, with a mild rise of 2 per cent,' Ms Chan said.

'As the business sector brings more staff to Hong Kong, we are confident that luxury residential rentals might grow 3 per cent to 5 per cent this year.'

She said the leasing rates for the unfurnished apartments were in the region of $30,000 to $100,000 per month.

Most of these offer panoramic views of Tai Tam Country Park, South Bay and Victoria Harbour from private balconies.
