Located at Mercer Street, a hip zone in close proximity to SoHo at the outer skirts of Central.
The whole tower is 25 stories on a podium at a corner site between Mercer Street and Jervois Street.
The Mercer tower is now visible on the skyline of the Hong Kong Island, facing the Victoria Harbour.It is also the recent style of Barrie Ho Architecture Interiors Ltd to reintroduce and reinterpret fundamental architectural elements with the coordination of the most basic of colours, black, white and grey.
The ground floor accommodates a Lobby Entrance purposely opened to connect with the cafe lounge. Amenities are situated across 4 levels of the podium, accommodating restaurants, gymnasium and business centres.
More interestingly, hip and boutique swimming pools are introduced creating an oasis within the tight site.
The 25 storeys are subdivided into 5 zones, with the lower 4 floors designed for guest rooms, the upper 4 houses and 2 executive guest rooms which weave between black and white patterns. The interior is also a simple but powerful black and white and grey.
