This popular West Mid Levels development was completed in 1971 and consists of five 20 storey blocks, each with 80 apartments. All the apartments were originally 1166 sf saleable area but over time some owners have combined 2 apartments into 1 large unit with varying layouts. Half of the apartments face the harbour and the other half face south with the higher floors having lovely views over the Peak and the facilities. There was a large mansion house on the site before the present development was built and the facilities date from then. There is a large swimming pool and a chinese pagoda which houses the gym. There is a playground and extensive terraces with BBQ pits. There is also a shuttle bus service to Central.
It is a popular residential location as it is still within an easy commute to Central, yet is generally quieter and less congested with rentals a bit less expensive than Mid-Levels Central.
The main through roads of Robinson, Conduit and Caine-Bonham Roads carry most of the public transport options from Central through Mid-Levels West, out past Hong Kong University toward Pokfulam. Robinson, Caine & Bonham Roads have numerous shops and supermarkets and churches scattered along them.
The quieter pockets of Mid-Levels West include the Mosque area near the escalator, Kotewall Road and the green cul de sacs of Hatton Path, Po Shan Road and Lyttleton Road. It is a mix of modern, smaller high-rises such as The Babington and 80 Robinson Road and larger, older, more spacious and gracious apartments in mid-size blocks, which are very popular with expat families when nicely renovated such as Savoy Court and Hamilton Court.
