Jointly developed by three of Asia's most reputable developers - Cheung Kong Holdings (Limited)/Hutchison Whampoa,
Hongkong Land and Keppel Land, we are very proud to have been involved in the supply and installation of stone finishes
to the external plaza in Phase 1 and majority of the stonework in Phase 2. All stones were sourced from overseas suppliers in Italy,
Portugal and China. The first phase involving Towers 1 and 2 was completed in May 2010 while the second phase for Tower
3 was recently completed in May 2012.
The external paving at the plaza area is finished in Olive Green granite with water features covered in Shanxi Black granite, both of which were imported from China. All external walls are clad in Sahara Gold yellow granite and the glass box floor in Verde Maritaca granite, both of which were sourced from Brazil.
Black granite Jet Mist, from the US, was used on eleven columns outside the entrance of Tower 3. Impala Black granite from South Africa was also applied to the external low wall at the car park entrance.
The majority of the stones used in Tower 3 are from Europe. The architect selected a unique marble called Aurisina Granitello
from Italy for the flooring of the main lobby and typical lift lobbies with Tiger Black granite applied as accent strips.
Due to its rarity, supply is low and the time required to select quality examples is unusually long.
Another highlight of the environment design is a 3-storey high feature wall at ground floor that uses a traditional stone from Portugal, Rosa Aurora. Internationally recognized for its nobility and timelessness, it has a pink background with light veins helping to create a natural masterpiece. Portuguese limestone varieties like Montdore and Gascogne Beige were also used for typical lift lobby walls and the front walls of retail shops respectively.
The main lobby has a mixture of various varieties of stone that gives the building a distinct character. A brown travertine from Turkey, Travertine Noce, is used for the main lobby stone box and feature walls. This material stands out effectively with a lighter travertine installed as the background. Calacatta Sponda, an exclusive white marble from Italy with deep grey veins and occasional light grey highlights, endows ground floor lift lobbies and lift cab interiors with a sophisticated and elegant air.
