Ascott has grand opened its first serviced
residence property in Chengdu – the 200-unit Somerset Riverview
Overlooking the Jinjiang River, Somerset
Riverview Chengdu is located within the downtown central business
district along South Renmin Road. Unionsun Yangkuo Plaza, a
premier grade A office building, is next to the serviced residence
property, while prominent office buildings including Lippo Tower,
Times Plaza and Plaza Central are within a five-minute drive.
The Somerset Riverview Chengdu is also a
15-minute walk to the landmark Tianfu Square which is home to
major shopping malls and a transportation hub that provides
convenient access to various destinations in the city.
The new serviced residence property offers
apartments ranging from studios to duplexes, catering to the
different lifestyle needs of both short and long-stay customers.
All apartments provide a fully-equipped kitchen, ensuite bathroom,
and separate living and work areas with WiFi internet service and
home entertainment system.
Somerset Riverview Chengdu’s comprehensive
facilities include a children’s indoor playroom, yoga / dance
studio, fully-equipped gymnasium, sauna, rooftop garden with a
barbecue area, snooker tables and even a boxing ring.
Mr Lim Ming Yan, Chief Executive Officer of The
Ascott Limited, said, “China continues to be one of our fastest
growing markets. Besides the grand opening of our first property
in Chengdu, as well as the Ascott Huai Hai Road Shanghai last
month, we will open another four new properties in China later
this year. With China’s strong economic growth, we will continue
to expand our presence in the key growth cities to double our
network in China to 12,000 apartment units by 2015. Western China
has immense potential for Ascott to grow its presence. We expect
strong demand for serviced residences as the government has been
attracting foreign investments and travellers to the region
through its Western Development programme. The opening of Somerset
Riverview Chengdu, our third property in western China,
demonstrates our confidence in the region.”
