The list of sought-after neighbourhoods in Hong Kong include areas with sweeping views of the ocean and quiet havens nestled within the city’s rolling hills, but none of them can match the heritage and exclusivity of Kadoorie Hill.
At Kadoorie Hill, tall buildings are replaced by wide boulevards and walls lined with trailing bougainvillea plants, and the neighbourhood also comes with a history that stretches back to 1930s, when the Kadoorie family bought up the land and started developing it.
The Kadoorie family was a major investor in Hong Kong Engineering & Construction Co at the time and started to build low-rise residences in the area—choosing quality over quantity by building standalone and semi-detached homes, bungalows and low-level apartment buildings. As a result, Kadoorie Hill stands out in Hong Kong for its low-density and exclusivity, while the Kadoorie family’s stewardship of the area gave it an enviable legacy.
In addition, Kadoorie Hill is close to some of the city’s top schools, such as Diocesan Boy’s School and Mary Knoll Convent School.
And now, Sino and the Kadoorie-owned CLP Group are offering an opportunity for investors to call Kadoorie Hill home with St. George’s Mansions, a three-tower luxury residential development that sits on the same site as the original apartment building of the same name.
