Headland Developments announces the public launch of The Fountainside, Macau 40% of apartments sold out during VIP sales

Headland Developments Limited today announces the public launch of The Fountainside Macau, a luxury low-density residential development located in the city’s exclusive Penha Hill district. This follows strong pre-launch demand from VIP buyers.

 Situated on a prime corner location in the heart of Macau’s UNESCO World Heritage district, The Fountainside offers an elegant architectural blend of classic and contemporary design. The development consists of 42 apartments, including 34 standard units and eight special units, all with the convenience of private underground parking facilities.

The original building’s Portuguese colonial façade has been beautifully preserved and integrated into the new development. This is in keeping with the Macau Government’s strong emphasis on heritage protection and Headland Development’s specialisation in sustainable and environmental design.

The launch will commence with the release of ten well-positioned apartments priced from HK$4,000 per square foot. The units range from large studios to three bedroom apartments with sizes from 723 to over 2,000 square feet. Later this year, eight special units, including four villas, two duplexes and two sky garden units will be launched at prices that reflect their utmost quality.

John Gunning, Managing Director of Headland Developments said, “We are very excited to deliver a new benchmark in luxury low-density living to Macau. The Fountainside will offer an unrivalled standard of accommodation with a strong emphasis on high quality material selection and workmanship.

Joao Afonso, Macau Director of property investment manager Sniper Capital, which manages The Fountainside project said, “We have been highly encouraged by the interest from our VIP buyers which has to-date resulted in over 40% of the units being sold. This confirms a real and growing demand from Macau residents seeking to upgrade to high quality homes.”

The Fountainside offers a variety of layouts from studio to four-bedroom apartments with most providing either a private terrace or a garden. Bathrooms and kitchens will be fully fitted to the highest specifications with European brands.

Commenting on the development, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Managing Director and Head of Capital Markets, Hong Kong, Joseph Tsang says, “With Macau’s positive market outlook for 2011 and beyond, the project has excellent potential for value appreciation. The Fountainside will be the premiere choice for discerning home buyers given its niche positioning, distinguished location and scarcity of new developments in the vicinity.”

The sales office of The Fountainside is now available for public viewing at 14/F, World Trade Centre, 918 Avenida da Amizade, Macau. Further information about The Fountainside is available at
