Hong Kong 4,650 square foot detach fetches 35.90 million US

Hong Kong luxury house fetches near-record price
(AFP) – Mar 17, 2010

HONG KONG — A Hong Kong listed company said Wednesday it will buy a luxury house for a near-record price in the city, a month after the government introduced measures to cool the city's property market.

Sino-tech International Holdings, an electronics components maker, said it has agreed to buy the 4,650 square foot property on the Peak for 280 million Hong Kong dollars (35.90 million US), or 60,215 dollars per square foot, as an investment.

The per-square-foot price is among the highest paid for a property in the southern Chinese city, after a duplex was sold by Henderson Land Development in October for an Asian record of 71,280 dollars per square foot.

The Peak property is one of the 22 houses in the luxurious Severn 8 development on Severn Road, which was named by online analysis group The Wealth Bulletin as one of the 10 most expensive streets in the world last year.
Also on the list were Chemin de Saint-Hospice in the South of France, Fifth Avenue in New York, and Kensington Palace Gardens in London.

The near-record price was reached despite a series of measures the government introduced in February to cool the white-hot property market, such as increasing residential land supply and stamp duty for luxury flats.
John Tsang, the city's financial secretary, said the government was worried that the property frenzy, supported by strong demand from rich mainland buyers and a big inflow of funds, would create a bubble and affect the stability of the financial system.

Prices of some luxury flats returned to the peaks of the 1997 property boom in January, Tsang said.

Stimulus measures by governments around the world have boosted liquidity, which has lead to large fund inflows into Asia.

China has also seen soaring property prices, with values rising at their fastest pace in 17 months in December after Beijing encouraged tax breaks, loans and lower downpayment requirements to boost the sector during the slump.

The per-square-foot price is among the highest paid for a property in the southern Chinese city, after a duplex was sold by Henderson Land Development in October for an Asian record of 71,280 dollars per square foot.
Only one of 25 sales in the development was completed so far, read more below. The Hong Kong Government is investigating the matter and requesting explaination from the developer.

The record high price apartment property sale is not completed and is suspected to be artificial and fraudulent. For the 25 properties 'sale', only 4 is finally completed, all the others are cancelled.

So it may be a record in Singapore. The land are always under leasehold in Hong Kong.

Definitely, Singapore is many times less densely populated than hong kong so land in hk is much rarer.
