Lakeville Regency is the second project of the famous Lakeville series, located in the heart of Xintiandi, adjacent to Taipingqiao Lake. It opened in 2006 and has 17 residential high-rises, which make for a total of 645 housing units. Each building has its own spacious lobby on the ground floor, complete with a reception desk and luggage carts.
The apartments themselves are privately owned, so the individual style of each unit is unique. Still, for most units, you can expect popular features such as wood flooring, a balcony, a bathtub, and built-in, quality appliances in the kitchen. The onsite clubhouse – Club Regency – was proudly proclaimed by the developer back in 2005 to be the “largest clubhouse in the downtown residential district”. And, indeed, every bit of the 7,000 sqm (74,700 sq ft) space is filled with premium facilities, including: a fitness center, indoor heated swimming pool, indoor volleyball court, billiards room, children’s play room, and more. Residents receive VIP membership upon registration and can access the clubhouse’s main facilities for free. A pass for guests costs ¥200/hour. The clubhouse building is clean and clearly well-maintained. Surrounding the clubhouse are art deco-inspired high-rises and French-style manicured gardens. Black-painted cast stone planters, garden pedestals, and decorative pools of water are also featured in the design. Benches, walkways, and outdoor public balconies provide spaces for relaxing, walking, and socializing.
