Swire Properties Names Brand New Mid-Levels West Residential Project "AZURA"

Swire Properties Limited today announces that its latest residential project at 2A Seymour Road, Mid-Levels West has been officially named "AZURA". With panoramic views of Victoria Harbour, AZURA sets new standards for architectural design and management excellence, offering residents the twin luxuries of a tranquil yet accessible home.

The name "AZURA 蔚然", in both English and Chinese, reflects the clear blue sky, emphasising the views and the sense of space at the new development. The living environment at AZURA combines the elegance of Swire Properties' minimalist design concept with a meticulous focus on enjoying life in peace and privacy.

Adrian To, General Manager, Residential at Swire Properties Ltd., said: "As one of the few residential projects in the highly sought-after Mid-Levels West area, AZURA is set to bolster our long-established brand reputation. This property is located in a prestigious location similar to our earlier landmark development, The Albany. It is close to the Central commercial business district as well as to Soho's cultural and entertainment neighbourhood. Mid-Levels is a well-established high-end residential district where the supply of exclusive properties is rare. AZURA will be the new icon in the area and will set a new benchmark for quality living."

Offering 126 spacious units ranging in size from 1,650 to 2,100 sq ft, the 50-storey property adopts a modern, understated design that exudes timeless elegance. Each floor offers three units of three or four bedrooms, the latter including two en-suites. The development's leisure and entertainment facilities provide a welcome sanctuary after a busy day in the city.

The residence also features three exquisite penthouses on the top floor with private pool and three unique apartments with flat roof. The wing-like architectural design of the building offers the widest possible view for all units.

The expected completion date of AZURA is Q4 2012.
