Completed in 2007, this trendy modern highrise is well located in the heart of Wanchai, close to the MTR and surrounded by good restaurants and shops. It is also a short walk to Pacific Place. It has 30 storeys with the regular floors, each with 13 apartments. These are studios and 1-2 bedroom units. They all have balconies, open kitchens, high ceilings and vary from 307-645 sf saleable. With the rooftop pool, sun garden and large gym, they are very popular with young professionals.
Originally best known as the 'Suzy Wong' R&R zone for visiting sailors historically, there were few residential blocks of any significance until the developers of Pacific Place launched Star Crest and put the whole Star Street area on the chic nightlife map.
One by one, old buildings have been demolished and where they would previously have been replaced by commercial properties, we are now seeing smart residential complexes with 1 and 2 bed modern units drawing young professionals to live in this busy and buzzy area. Buildings such as J Residence and The Zenith offer a stylish finish and recreational facilities at a slightly lower rental than similar units in Central and Mid-levels. The upper floors of these blocks can have great views as they tower above the older blocks below. There are also several large serviced apartment blocks offering short and longer term accommodation.
