Located in Macau’s prestigious Penha Hill district, The Fountainside is the latest luxury residential property by Headland Developments. In line with its sustainable design principles, the developer has partnered with BMW Macau to promote green living.

The four exclusive villas at The Fountainside will be sold with an environment-friendly BMW i3 electric car. Each villas has its own private garage with a specially adapted charging station for the groundbreaking new electric car.

An additional BMW i3 is also offered in a prize draw for owners of all other 38 units in the development.

“Our partnership with BMW, a world leader in next-generation driving technology, is a natural extension of the thinking that underpins The Fountainside’s development as an environmentally sustainable development,” said João Afonso, Director of Sniper Capital, which manages The Fountainside.

Apart from the partnership, the heritage development has displayed strong green credentials in other aspects too. The air-conditioning systems in common areas are fitted with environment-friendly refrigerants, and LED lighting is standard throughout the development.

As well, the property features a unique, eco-friendly “green” roof with the MEP Tray Green Roof Module system certified by the United States Green Building Council. It has the combined advantage of reducing electricity consumption and heat transmission.

Inside the residences, bathroom and kitchen are fully fitted to the highest specifications with energy-efficient amenities and appliances from renowned European brands.
