In case you haven’t heard, an exciting new residential development is coming to the Sha Tin district. Located right above Tai Wai MTR where the East Rail Line and Tuen Ma Line meet stands The Pavilia Farm. The property is slated for completion in November 2022, and like its name suggests, there is actual land on the property for growing crops, making urban-pastoral living a reality. It’s the perfect middle between the hustle and bustle of city life and the calm of countryside life.
Sustainability is at the heart of this new project by New World Development, with an emphasis on low-carbon living. Prospective buyers can choose from one to four-bedroom units, each outfitted with high-end, energy-saving appliances and scenic views of Lion Rock, Needle Hill, and the Shing Mun River. Read on to find out how else the development ticks all the boxes when it comes to eco-living in the city.
For the urban farmers
Now, in dense cities such as Hong Kong, space is often a luxury and urban farming is emerging in popularity as a means of more sustainable living. Good news, as now you can grow your food, and eat it too. At the Pavilia Farm, residents can grow their own crops on the urban farm and enjoy a farm-to-table concept right at home. Designed by renowned landscape designer Ohtori Consultants from Japan, the area was inspired by Japanese farmlands and is proof that living well isn’t impossible in the city.
For the eco-conscious
Elements of Nordic and Japanese design are peppered throughout the residential development, with sleek wood furnishings and bright, airy spaces. But the spaces aren’t just nice to look at, everything’s been designed to be environmentally-friendly too. The Pavilia Farm runs on renewable energy, with solar panels and wind turbines scattered throughout the property.
These help to reduce energy consumption, while thermal-performance glass curtain walls and energy efficient appliances make low-carbon living in every household possible. That’s not all, as these are paired with 10 patented smart home devices and facilities included in each unit.
Among these is a 3-in-1 laundry set up in the bathroom that makes doing laundry more efficient, with a built-in retractable clothes rack and foldable ironing board that also saves space. Modern living is taken to another level with a switch-activated retractable step in the bathroom, a hidden step that slides out so children can use the sink easily.
For the little ones
Residents will find that the Pavilia Farm was designed with the most important group of people in the world in mind. Children will have no lack of spaces for play, with different themed indoor and outdoor play areas that make learning through play fun. Nature is a recurring theme throughout the entire property as well, that both kids and parents alike will enjoy.
