Well located a short walk from the escalator and shops on Robinson Road, these 2 modern towers, Robinson Place, is a rare combination of superior architecture and an extraordinary setting. They were developed by Swire and completed in 1994. This twin-tower development is located at the tranquil end of Robinson Road, yet with shops, schools and other conveniences within walking distance.
Each tower has 7 apartments per floor and tower 1 has 46 storeys while tower 2 has 47. There are a total of 651 units. They are all of 2 or 3 bedrooms and the saleable areas vary from 908-1150 sf. The kitchens come fully equipped with all major electrical appliances from Europe and there is a storeroom/ maid's room. The higher floor apartments have open city views.
The sports club provides modern gym facilities, 2 squash courts and an indoor tennis court with full changing room facilities and saunas. There is an attractive pool set in a well landscaped garden area. There is a shuttle bus 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.
