“The project broke records at launch, achieving an average per apartment price of $5.25 million,” he said.

The 53 residences include 38 x 290sqm half-floor villas, 2 x 466sqm double-storey sky homes, 11 x 580sqm full-floor sub penthouses and an opulent 1130 sqm penthouse set over two levels and featuring a private rooftop pool and amenities.
