Living at Skyline Mansion is somewhat akin to being at a holiday resort. Streams of gently bubbling water weave through the compound, reflecting the soft hues of blue-green tiles. Waterside seating, both in the shade and not, provides small bubbles of tranquility. Palm trees, large grassy areas, winding walkways, and bridges dot the landscape.
The onsite amenities are extensive, including an onsite fitness center, a young children’s education center, playgrounds, restaurant, swimming pool, and more. Each and every aspect of the residence is handled with an incredible amount of care. The outdoor swimming pool, for instance, is encircled by lush greenery to ensure the privacy of its users, and there are often as many as three lifeguards on duty at a time.
And, for the coup de grace, several of Shanghai’s most famous towers form the backdrop of this residence. There are few places, after all, where residents can claim they swim with the Shanghai World Finance Center (“the bottle opener”) in view. The Oriental Pearl Tower, Shanghai Tower, and Jin Mao Tower can also be easily seen from the compound.
It would be a stretch to call the surrounding area “just your typical, local neighborhood”, with the tour buses roaming the streets and Shanghai Tower being a mere 5 minutes’ walk down the road. However, the compound itself and the surrounding streets are surprisingly quiet and peaceful, and the benefits of living in Lujiazui are endless: Michelin starred restaurants, museums, art exhibitions, and stunning panoramic views from the city’s tallest towers. It’s also worth noting, that a 5 minutes’ walk will also put you by the Huangpu River and in front of all the lovely sights that it has to offer.
Skyline Mansion is an easy 10-15 minutes’ walk to two of Line 2’s metro stations – Lujiazui and Dongchang Road. Line 2 conveniently connects commuters directly to a number of key stations including Hongqiao Railway Station, Hongqiao Airport, Jing’an Temple, People’s Square, East Nanjing Road, and Pudong Airport. Inner Shanghai is easily navigable by foot, bike, or public transportation, but drivers will also find that it’s easy to connect to several to the city’s expressways, bridges, and tunnels from this compound.
