At the final gala of the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2018 at The Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park in Thailand’s Bangkok on May 15, all four projects of Alpha King – Alpha Hill, Alpha Mall, Alpha Town, and Centennial – won in their respective categories pf “Residential High-Rise Architecture,” “Commercial High-Rise Architecture,” “Office Development,” and “Residential High-Rise Development.”
Alpha Hill, the first transformative apartment project in Vietnam, completely impressed the international judges in the "Residential High-Rise Architecture" category.
Located at the heart of District 1, Alpha Hill applies the most advanced technologies in the world, such as facial recognition and BIM system that help improve efficiency during construction.
Units at this ultra-luxury residential project are equipped with five-star standard furniture and furnishings, such as built-in refrigerators, Touch2O faucets in the large kitchens, smart mirrors with touch-screen displays that allow users to surf the internet, smart toilets following Japanese standards, and showers with a massage function.
When residents want to have a world class entertainment experience, these smart apartments can also become mini-studios thanks to the Home Theatre System from Samsung.
Alpha Mall, located below Alpha Hill’s twin towers, won the highest award in the “Commercial High-Rise Architecture” category with an architectural aesthetic inspired by Saigonese street art and shophouse style. The mall has two big atriums, and a transparent facade featuring a big LED promotion screen.
The last piece in the live-work-play model that Alpha King pioneered in order to create maximum convenience and bring the most fulfilling life experience to urban citizens is the Alpha Town office tower.
Inspired by the ao dai, a bold symbol of Vietnamese identity, Alpha Town is the only 35-storey Grade A office building constructed by a foreign developer in the central business district area of District 1.
The design of the building helps create open office spaces to stimulate creativity in and bring inspiration to people. With the absolute advantages of design, function, and location, Alpha Town was recognised by the judges as the best office development in Ho Chi Minh City.
Located in the historic Bason area beside the Saigon River and boasting hundreds of years of heritage, Centennial is proudly called “The Legacy of Time” and features timeless design, state-of-the-art facilities, and world-class service.
Centennial was recognised by the judges as the winner of the “Residential High-Rise Development” category. It is recognised as having the potential to become an international hub as other well-known locations as The Bund (Shanghai), Marina Bay Sands (Singapore), or Victoria Dockside (Hong Kong) thanks to its unrivalled waterfront location, which is only minutes-away from bus, water bus, and metro stations.
The highlights of the project’s architecture are the uniquely designed facade that can resist heavy rains; the use of double-glazed Triple Low E glass that deflects 95 per cent of the sun’s rays while ensuring that enough natural light reaches the apartments; as well as a smart home system that allows residents to interact with their homes via smartphones.
In addition, Centennial will be the best ultra-luxury project in Vietnam with its dual clubhouse concept offering 29 professional core services and over 24 exclusive lifestyle services, customised to cater to all aspects of urban living.
Besides enjoying art pieces in the grand lobby, residents can also have access to a world of knowledge through the enchanting library on the ground floor, enjoy fine dining in five-star restaurants or shop in luxury gourmet grocery stores.
The rooftop is for the exclusive use of Centennial residents, and will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including the Sky Clubhouse, Sky Gym, Sky Lounge, and Sky Theatre, as well as indoor facilities such as a golf simulator, darts zone, and billiard table.
The salt water pool will be surrounded by glass that reduces strong wind pressure on top, and keeps the water temperature pleasant for residents.
