Hong Kong’s art and design district Victoria Dockside will soon see the addition of K11 Artus, a new luxury hotel residence concept, announced New World Development.
Located at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, the property is scheduled to open in summer 2019. It will have 287 residences spanning 14 storeys, featuring open-air waterfront views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island.
“Artus marks a major milestone for the K11 brand with our expansion into the hospitality sector,” said Adrian Cheng, K11 founder and executive vice-chairman of New World Development.
New York-based architectural studio Kohn Pedersen Fox designed the building while Bangkok-based P Landscape will be responsible for the surrounding greenery. In addition, renowned Hong Kong-based architect Andre Fu and his studio AFSO have been engaged to create the interiors.
Artus will be part of the Victoria Dockside development, a 278,700m2 art and design district in Tsim Sha Tsui. This US$2.6 billion development includes the K11 Atelier office tower and K11 Musea, a new ultra-high-end experiential retail, art, cultural and dining destination.
Paul Cunningham, general manager of hospitality and portfolio management of New World Development, said in a statement: “Combining the convenience of hotels and the comfort of serviced apartments, ARTUS offers flexible rental plans from short- to long-term stays to accommodate the needs of our guests.”
