The brand new Larvotto luxury development in Island South takes its inspiration from its namesake in Monaco. With its enviable waterfront location and a breathtaking 270° sea view, the developers believe it is destined to become one of the most sought-after properties in the territory.
To draw attention to this belief, Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency (one of the developers in question) held a grand ceremony at The Aberdeen Marina Club early December 2009 to introduce the name and the concept behind the project. The gala began with a magnificent “Oceanus Mirage” show.
Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency Executive Director Victor Lui said, “Larvotto is in Island South’s most exclusive area where the seashore and location provide an unparalleled sense of privacy and comfort. The fact that the development will face (the sea) means that residents will enjoy a 270° view from the Aberdeen Marina Club to Ocean Park and Aberdeen Channel. It’s a premium seaside luxury property for the privileged few, and the best option for buyers looking for a perfect living environment or an ideal investment.”
Larvotto is being jointly developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties, Kerry Properties and Paliburg Holdings. The project stretches over 180,000 sqf in nine low-density luxury buildings in a 320-meter single line to offer the perfect promised views for each of the 700-plus apartments. Most of the units will measure between 1,000 and 2,600 sqf, with special units also available.
