Paragon of Luxury
Settle into a nonpareil lifestyle at The Paragon, nestled in the midst of history and culture rich Shanghai
Issue: Feb 2011
The Paragon: decadent living in vast spaces and abundance of nature.
The cradle of Shanghai’s alluring historical and nostalgic setting is narrated not only in its local gazettes through individual life stories and anecdotes. Well-preserved heritage buildings like the Cathay Theatre, residences of Liu Hai Su, Sun Yat-sen, Zhou Enlai, as well as the warren of alleys lined with traditional houses play a big part in forming Shanghai’s unique architectural landscape.

Luwan is also home to the heritage residence of Liu Hai Su, the prominent contemporary Chinese painter and founder of art education in China
Downtown Shanghai has been a bonanza for architects with a penchant for designing towering buildings amidst the conservation of splendid developments left behind by history. Retaining an abundance of low-rise heritage buildings, the former French Concession is a rich fusion of traditional and modern architecture. Built into this backdrop of Central Shanghai will stand The Paragon, a new residential development offering aristocratic lifestyle in premium quality homes.
Residents will be surrounded by a city brimming with a rich traditional atmosphere as they settle into their contemporary homes right in the groove of this neighbourhood
“The Paragon is a project built in the heart of Shanghai’s magnificent history. Residents will relish not only the finer side of the neighbourhood; they’ll be able to appreciate the attention given to every detail around the property,” says Qin Bin, Assistant General Manager for Sales and Marketing, CapitaLand China.
Located on South Mao Ming Road in the Luwan district, The Paragon is ideally situated, as the development is accessible via all modes of transport. With its completion in the latter half of 2012, it is set to reach new heights in redefining luxury living.
“Luwan is one of Shanghai’s most desirable residential areas and one of its most important business, shopping and cultural zones. You really do have everything in one place,” adds Qin. Luwan also houses one of the best sections of Huaihai Road, famous for its international fashion shops and high-class restaurants.

Nestling in Lush Paradise
The apartment towers are appropriately distributed throughout the compound so you can enjoy ample space and privacy. Inspired by the English countryside, part of the focal point of the project has been on its layout and landscape. A large expanse has been put aside for a central green area, designed to the likes of an “oasis town”. The English garden style provides the ambience of leisure and comfort, paying much emphasis to the distinctive elements of the four seasons.
A main feature will be the clubhouse, which will have an area of about 3,500 square metres. Equipped with state-of-the-art recreational facilities, such as an indoor swimming pool, yoga room, kids’ play room and billiard room. The clubhouse will be located in the basement of the development with a part of it linked to the courtyard. With large skylights and transparent glass installed, it is a surreal experience, as the indoor environment seems to seamlessly merge with nature.
The kitchen layout allows for more working areas, ensuring your comfort level within the space
Quality Furnishings and Innovative Technology for a Chic Lifestyle
Enjoy ample space within your apartment as well. These spacious deluxe units come between 136 square metres and 560 square metres. In addition to two, three and four-bedroom units, duplexes are offered in the development. The grandeur of space is accentuated by the long gallery-like walls and wide daylight windows. Furnished with premium marble, each unit is cleverly decorated in a variation of similar shades without looking gaudy or drab.
Each home is also fitted with branded appliances that will complement your chic lifestyle. From Bulthaup kitchen cabinet, Miele kitchen technology to a Liebherr wine cooler and Duravit bathroom fittings, these household wares known for their stellar efficacy are made available in the apartment.
