Looking for an urban lifestyle but tired of the pollution and crowds of downtown Phnom Penh? Apennines Condominium offers a slower-paced lifestyle with its modern apartments that provide a panorama of Phnom Penh and a relaxing neighbourhood just outside the front door.
Designed by award-winning Malaysian and Singaporean firms, the 17-storey building brings a contemporary and sophisticated feel to Toul Kork’s villa district just north of Russian Confederation Boulevard and the Royal University of Phnom Penh.
Whether you are single or have a family, the all-inclusive condominium offers many lifestyle options.
“Our condos are focused on all generations, single or family. We have one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom options,” said Soth Soheata, administrative executive of Apennines.
Prospective buyers can visit the showroom near the condominium’s building site on Street 606 in Toul Kork, which offers walk-through models of the two- and three-bedroom apartment options.
Apartments are based on the latest styles in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, as the project was developed by Singaporean firm KHSI Investment PTE LTD, which engaged architects from Malaysian firm EDP Architecture, whose past projects include the ritzy Westside One Condominium in Kuala Lumpur.
Engineering was supplied by the award-winning LSW Consulting Engineers from Singapore, whose past developments include the classy condominiums Parc Emily, and Cliveden at Grange.
Apennines’apartments come with a Western-style kitchen with a gas stove and chrome refrigerator, a master suite with its own private bathroom, a guest bathroom, and a private balcony.
Other amenities include a chandelier in the dining area, air-conditioning units in every room, elegant floor tiling, and picture windows with an expansive view of the city. The apartments can be accessed by two elevators from the lobby.
Residents have access to the rooftop common area, which offers a 360-degree viewing deck of Phnom Penh, a private gym, and an infinity pool that is ideal for pool parties or to simply relax and soak up the rays.
Apennines is also the first apartment building in Phnom Penh to have a car lift, so residents can better access the building’s 6-storey carpark without having to drive up and around to find a parking space.
“It is the first lift [of] this [kind] in Cambodia,” said Socheata. “The others just have parking but we also provide a car lift. We have two car lifts and two passenger lifts.”
Each apartment comes with its own private parking space, with extra spots for visitors. The garage is built without columns so drivers do not have to worry about accidentally damaging their own or others’cars while making any quick turns.
One of Appenines’ biggest appeals is its prime location in one of Phnom Penh’s best residential neighbourhoods that is only a 30-minute commute from the city centre. The tree-lined streets surrounding the Apennines compound offer an oasis of calm and relaxing neighbourhood cafes – something that is often in short supply in busy Phnom Penh.
The Cambodian Country Club is only a short drive away, as are the best international schools and hospitals in the city including CIA First, Northbridge International, and Royal Phnom Penh Hospital.
The area also offers a wide variety of shopping. Apennines is close to the boutique shopping mall TK Avenue, home to a Lucky Supermarket, and brands like Mango, Adidas, and Shiseido cosmetics. The mall also has a Legend Cinema, Phnom Penh’s best cinema chain, and a food court.
Shopping enthusiasts will also be able to visit a new Aeon Mall and a Parkson Mall nearby, which are currently under construction and will be completed soon.
While the Apennines project will not be completed for another two years, Socheata said the units are selling fast.
30 of the building’s 43 units have already been bought, but prospective buyers can still take advantage of the remaining condo units. KHSI is offering a six per cent discount on all apartments until the end of December.
The visitor’s centre is located at House 30, Street 606 in Toul Kork, but you can get a virtual tour from the comfort of your home at www.apennines-khsi.com.
