Multi-unit Buyers Extinct in Harbour Glory Sale
According to Cheung Kong, 142 out of 152 units have been sold in the first round of sales of Harbour Glory, including a 1,595-square-foot seaview flat, which sold for HK$69.95 million, or HK$43,855 per square foot. From the document uploaded by Cheung Kong, all buyers of the 142 sold units are single-unit buyers. At least 20% of buyers will give up purchasing this North Point project after the government plugged the loophole for multiple flat purchases in one single contract, according to the prediction of Chan Wing-kit, Centaline Property’s Asia-Pacific residential chief executive.
