HONG KONG, 9 July, 2019 – “ONTOLO朗濤”, the latest residential project by Great Eagle Holdings, is located at No. 7 Fo Yin Road1, Pak Shek Kok, Tai Po. Nestled amidst spectacular natural beauty, it offers breathtaking views of Tolo Harbour2 and the gentle green ridges of Kau To Shan2. This rare residential gem is ensconced in beautifully designed open green spaces, a masterstroke by a renowned landscape architect. Located within close proximity to the Hong Kong Science Park and well served by a comprehensive transportation network, ONTOLO is a Perfect Home – One for All.
Mr. Alexander Lo, Executive Director of Great Eagle Holdings Limited said, “ONTOLO combines its lush, green setting with extensive facilities and state-of-the-art amenities to create a wonderfully serene environment2 that residents can call home. We have commissioned a renowned London-based landscape architectural practice Gustafson Porter + Bowman to design an enchanted woodland retreat, spanning over 29,000 square feet of green open space. This unique, differentiated space, is called ‘The Great Lawn’3 and is the heart of ONTOLO. It provides an oasis of peace – a true sense of home.”
Speaking about ONTOLO’s geographical advantages, Chief Landscape Architect Mr. Neil Porter4 said, “What is amazing about the location of Pak Shek Kok, Tai Po, is that it is located away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Surrounded by abundant nature, with the expansive Tolo Harbour in front2, rolling mountain ridges at the back2 and a wide, long promenade popular with joggers and walkers, ONTOLO is a sanctuary of relaxed living and splendid seclusion.”
The woodland at ONTOLO draws on the beauty of its magnificent surroundings, which include a two-kilometer-long waterfront promenade5 and a coastal cycling track of about 22 kilometers6. This sumptuous natural environment offers numerous bucolic delights to help resident families fully unwind and relax as they explore the natural wonders of the area on foot or on a bicycle.
Ms. Janet Leung, Deputy General Manager of Sales and Marketing of Great Eagle Real Estate Agency Limited stated, “To cater to the diverse needs of residents, parking spaces for bicycles are offered at ONTOLO residences. In addition, we have engaged an international master in bespoke bicycle field to design and build a set of family bicycles9 specially for ONTOLO. These three bicycles are for the exclusive use of our residents, to enhance their experience of a home life embraced by nature, a realization of the distinctive waterfront living style at ONTOLO.”
ONTOLO is located at No. 7 Fo Yin Road, Pak Shek Kok, Tai Po1, adjacent to the Pak Shek Kok Promenade. The project comprises eight 14-storey buildings and two 4-storey low-rises, offering 723 spacious and comfortable units2 including one-to-four bedroom residential units. ONTOLO offers a wide range of layouts for typical units of saleable area7 from 357 square feet to 2,083 square feet, with one-bedroom units accounting for about 28% of the development; two-bedroom units 35%; three-bedroom units 27%; and four-bedroom units 10%. The spacious clubhouse8 blends in harmoniously with its surroundings, and includes a large open area – “the Great Lawn”3, as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness room, a music room, a multi-function room, and “The Tree House”8, etc.
