Far East Consortium International Limited (“FEC” or the “Group”; Stock Code: 35.HK) is delighted to announce the formal launch of Aspen at Consort Place from 6th to 7th June 2020 in Hong Kong’s Mandarin Oriental hotel from 11am-7pm where the scale replica model of this striking building will be unveiled. With completions from 2023, Aspen at Consort Place will sit proudly in Canary Wharf, with its remarkable collection of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, within an elegant 65 storey tower. The development will feature the Aspen Club which will include concierge services, a wellness and fitness suite, private dining, a business lounge with screening area, games room and winter garden and a glorious residents sky lounge at the very top; prices start from £447,500
The vision for the scheme was developed by Pilbrow and Partners Architects where the curvature of the two towers at Consort Place were designed to maximise the development’s outstanding views of the River Thames as it snakes westward, and the sun’s natural light as it rises in the east. The interiors at Aspen, designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA Residential), make use of warm, earth tones, comprising soft bronze and tactile copper, paying homage to the development’s eponymous aspen trees – a reflection of its seasonal changing colours.
All of the amenities in the development are designed with comfort, ease and community in mind. Beyond Aspen, across the new realm of Consort Place, there will be a 231-room four-star Dorsett hotel, education and health facilities and a community centre as well as cafes and a restaurant to connect residents to the daily life of the local community. Moreover, the historic and famous North Pole Pub is one of only a handful of pubs in the area which withstood the Blitz, and as befits the cultural significance of this local landmark, FEC is ensuring that it will be carefully restored.
