Overcoming one of the biggest challenges pertinent to sustainability, which is the trending Urbanization and Motorization, The 499 London Road & 501 London Road offers an underground CPS & APS parking which extends 5 levels down, and thereby providing a total of 563 parking spaces for cars, thus making the development both space efficient and sustainable.
