Phnom Penh is undergoing a transformation. A once low-rise city is rapidly rising upward, with a host of multi-storey office and apartment blocks shooting up across the urban heart of the capital.IMG_6790

The central Boeung Keng Kang 1 (BKK1) district is a hive of construction activity. It has long been a popular area among wealthy Cambodians and expatriates, with high-end restaurants, stylish boutiques and leafy side streets making it a highly sought-after neighbourhood for those seeking
a sophisticated lifestyle.

Among the most anticipated of these developments is the 352 Platinum condominium project, situated on 1,130 square metres of land in BKK1’s central Street 352. With an ultra-modern and appealing design, the City Park Development project is due to be completed at the end of 2017.

Sales director Ting Hsu said: “This project will be a new landmark in Phnom Penh. The design of this complex is innovative among all the property projects in the city.”

The freehold development includes 130 apartments ranging in size from one to three bedrooms, each with generous 3.6-metre-high ceilings and spacious 8- to 11-metre balconies that will afford residents ample light-filled areas for living. Every element of the design has been carefully considered by a team of expert interior designers, with refined décor and luxurious furnishings included in each residence. In addition, all electrical wiring is being installed underground.

High above the city, chic communal areas will incorporate entertainment rooms, a 20-metre infinity pool and even a sky bar, with views from atop the 25-storey building stretching out across the metropolis – not to mention the spa, lush garden and all-important gym. With its location on a sizeable plot set back from the road and plans for extensive bamboo gardens, this project promises to offer a tranquil counterpoint to the buzzing energy of Phnom Penh.

With the 352 Platinum, City Park Development is creating a pioneering apartment complex. It will be the first residential development to feature a large front driveway (34 metres long and 6.2 metres wide) for occupants to enter and exit with ease, a highly appealing attribute in a city with parking issues. On arrival, residents and guests will be whisked into one of Phnom Penh’s finest reception areas, with a grand entrance and lobby featuring sweeping high ceilings.

For ease of living, a wide variety of property management services are available, such as 24-hour security, a concierge service, housekeeping, a real estate brokerage service and wireless internet access. The project’s progress is being tracked and updated on Facebook daily, and prospective tenants are welcome to visit the site at any time.
