Conveniently located near the business hub of the Nanshan District and access for travel to Shenzhen, Hong Kong International Airport and Macau, Prince Bay Taiziwan balances convenience with a calming presence along Shenzhen Bay. It’s city living, complete with vibrant cultural opportunities, museums and a nearby mall.

Yet, the development offers a slower side of life in waterfront living with easy access to a marina and cruise terminal. Prince Bay Taiziwan is set to become Prince Bay’s tallest residential landmark when it’s completed in June 2023, standing at a towering 250 meters high.

Although priding themselves on luxurious design, the central component of the project is a connection with the outdoor environment.

“The design of the luxury apartments begins as an experience of arrival and throughout the journey to home,” said Design Partner Nick Cordingley. “A key driver is to enhance a close connection to the natural surroundings of air, light, ocean and mountains throughout the journey.”

After a stroll along the water, residents enter the building to be greeted by a four-story atrium garden. Additional outdoor balconies continue the theme of plants, bringing nature to everyday activities and extending indoor activities into outdoor living spaces.

Views and lush greenery are the cornerstone of each unit. There are garden villas, horizon views and duplexes. Each offer their own interaction with the environment.

“To further extend the experience of luxury living, we have given careful considerations to create premium and highly-personalized amenities as part of the overall design of views from the residences,” Cordingley said.

Extra touches for the residents include The Horizon Club, situated on the 46th floor, offering 360 degree views, a gym, a reading bar, café, spas, relaxation rooms and more. There is also public spaces with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, gathering spaces and additional gardens.

The project comes on the heels of another project completed by the 10 Design team — the 117,000 square meters Jinwan Mall nestled up to the edge of Jinsha Lake in Zhuhai, China. Other notable projects include the recently built Industrial Service Center and International Business Center.
