Additional Details

Double Cove residential development was awarded a Grand prize in Quality Building Award on 24 June 2016 and certified in September 2015 as Hong Kong’s first LEED-Neighbourhood Development, demonstrating sustainable certification being applied beyond just the Green building blocks.

Smart growth, new urbanism and sustainable buildings are the principles which must be collectively considered in order to attain such a quality standard and connectivity or walkability is one of the key features. Double Cove provides a 24-hr covered footpath on the podium level allowing residents and public to move freely to the MTR Station and the Public Transport Terminus.

The residential towers all lie along the perimeter of the development in a stepped layout from south to north, creating a larger sense of space and view for residents. Walkways, cycle paths and sitting-out areas are also available to encourage exercise within the community and promoting social cohesiveness.

The core concept of ‘Living in a Park’ by Sir Richard Rogers pertaining to a sustainable lifestyle has convinced the developer to put aside 38% of the buildable land within the project boundary for landscaping which echoes the theme of Green Building Award 2016, Driving for Green Lifestyle and Excellence in Sustainable Built Environment.

Other relevant accomplishments include:

  • First private residential development in Hong Kong to investigate site-wide Heat Island Index via computational modelling techniques.
  • First Radon on-site measurement for private residential development in HK.
