This week, we have a look at a high-end mixed use project, The Peak, located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The project is planned to be completed in 2020 and Huttons Asia has helped us to write this sponsored article, where they share more information about the development.

The Peak is a freehold property and integrated with Shangri-La’s 5 Stars Hotel & CapitaLand Mall, located right in the heart of Phnom Penh. Within 200 meters, you’ll reach the famous Nagaworld 5-Stars Hotel & Casino (the only Casino in Phnom Penh).

Within 350 meters, you’ll be able to reach the upcoming World’s tallest twin tower, set to overtake Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers. And The Peak will be the closest residential tower, right next to this upcoming World’s tallest twin tower!

Sounds amazing, right?
