Living in Star Crest Apartments
Star Crest in Wan Chai was built in 1999 to the highest standards as a luxury residential apartment complex by one of Hong Kongs premium property developers. The development has a total of 329 quality finished apartments housed in 2 towers with a spacious layout of 6 apartments per floor. These range in size from 561 sq ft for the 1 bedroom units and rise up to 1510 sq ft for the 3 bedroom apartments.
Star Crest is possibly one of the best located apartment buildings you will find if you’re looking for convenience, access to entertainment and dining, the best shopping facilities for everything from furniture to designer brand clothing, supermarkets to electronics and everything in-between.
Situated in a quieter and recently gentrified corner of Wan Chai, Star Street has become a trendy neighbourhood street offering you such a variety of boutique dining experiences from Italian, French, Indian and Spanish restaurants to some of Hong Kongs best Cantonese food all the while managing to keep a cosy village atmosphere. Wonder along Star and Moon Streets where you will find a mixture of wine shops, boutique clothing brands, curiosity shops and inviting friendly corner bars to hang out with the locals or make use of the on-site facilities at Star Crest including swimming pools, gym, and Club house facilities.
The entrance to Star Crest is right across the road from Pacific Place 3 which forms part of the extensive luxury shopping mall and commercial complex Pacific Place.
This hugely popular mixed use lifestyle complex was re-developed in 2011 with a team led by famous designer Thomas Heatherwick who transformed Pacific Place into an inspirational icon of contemporary luxury. The complex is a lifestyle hub which is situated right above Admiralty MTR and connects you to many world class facilities housing major global luxury brands, a variety of restaurants, supermarkets and food halls, health and fitness centres and is the home of AMC Cinemas where you can catch the latest movies in any of its 6 cinemas.
Seamlessly integrated with this prestigious retail and leisure destination are three Grade-A office towers (One, Two and Three Pacific Place), a quartet of renowned five-star hotels (The Upper House, Conrad, Island Shangri-La and JW Marriott), all linked by covered walkways and escalators to the shopping mall, MTR, and cinemas including a covered walking bridge to further shopping and offices of the Admiralty Centre.
There are a number of parks surrounding the building, and Star Crest is a short walk to the culturally significant Asia Society Hong Kong Centre which has been created on the land of the former Explosives Magazine site of the old Victoria Army Barracks. The site which is steeped in history and set amongst over a hectare of beautifully laid out gardens, was restored and redeveloped to open in 2012 to much critical acclaim for it’s sympathetic and artistic design by renowned international architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. Enjoy exploring the grounds, visit the many exhibitions or dine in the awarded AMMO restaurant amongst waterfalls and the lush asian gardens.
