Since launching sales in 2012, Four Seasons has unveiled the model residences of their first branded residences in China, and they are stunning. The remarkable Four Seasons Place, Pudong, Shanghai, occupies the top 13 floors of the Canadian brand’s new luxury hotel in Shanghai’s Lujiazui district, offering panoramic views of the Lujiazui Cental Greenbelt, the Oriental Pearl Tower and the dazzling Shanghai skyline.
The 73 residences range from generous one-bedroom layouts to sprawling three-bedroom homes of 143 to 360 square meters each, with interiors designed by the renowned Yabu Pushelberg. Taking advantage of the walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that frame the dramatic skyline views, the distinctive floor plans feature open plan living and dining rooms with separate media or multi-function rooms. The flow between rooms is enhanced by gracious layouts and pocket doors allowing the owner to enjoy vast expanses or ensure privacy. The master suites feature generous closets and extravagant master bathrooms with egg-shaped soaking tubs.
Designed by one of the world’s most respected architecture firms, Gensler, the tower houses the new hotel on floors 30 to 40, an incredible spa on the 42nd floor and residences on floors 42 to 55. In addition to all the hallmarks of Four Seasons services, including housekeeping and in-room dining, residents will also have access to the full-floor FLARE spa. Its indoor infinity-edge pool is designed to maximize the views of the Shanghai skyline, while its VIP suites include whirlpools and rain showers for two. The spa also includes an extensive fitness center open 24 hours a day, with spa zones featuring ice fountains and unique heat experiences. Naturally, you can also enjoy the deck and the bar/lounge as well.
Developed by the prestigious Shui On Group, the hotel opened in mid-2012 and model show-suites are now available for viewing, with pricing reported to be 180,000 Yuan per square meter (nearly US$3000 per square foot), triple the Shanghai average.
