Greenview Villa is a Subsidized Sale Flats Project developed by the Hong Kong Housing Society in providing “practical but not extravagant” affordable residential flats for the local home buyers. The project consists of three 38 storeys residential towers providing 988 residential units on a 2 storey podium with landscape garden, carpark and residents’ recreational facilities, with an extensive on-grade landscape garden.

Bearing “people-oriented approach” in mind, the project addressed the aspirations of the end users for a green and healthy living environment. A holistic approach was adopted to optimize the development potential and enhance the environmental sustainability in the design of the project. Care was given to natural ventilation and lighting, as well as view orientation in the planning of the residential flats. Provision of extensive soft landscaping and greenery to roof and podium in the development achieves a healthy and green living environment for the physical and psychological wellbeing of the residents. The use of energy saving light source and control device in the services design help to greatly reduce energy consumption of the development in long run. Certified environmental management systems were implemented throughout the construction process with regular review to ensure meeting the predetermined environmental performance targets. By thoughtful design and implementation of the environmental measures, the construction of the project went smoothly and timely completed which met all key performance indicators covering quality, safety, environmental management, time and cost. The project had also received award for its outstanding performance in the aspect of environmental management during the construction stage.

It is the vision of achieving a Green lifestyle in this project that an elegant, comfortable and sustainable “Greenview Villa” for the amenity of the residents and neighbourhood was born.
