One-bedroom units are in heavy demand at Tung Chung’s Visionary complex, with the price this month reaching a new high of $12,584 per sq foot.
A one-bedroom apartment in tower 10, with a usable area of 445 sq feet and lacking a sea view, sold last week for HK$5.6 million. The previous owner paid HK$3.67 million in December 2013.
The new buyer is an investor who is likely to lease the property for approximately HK$11,000 per month, Economic Times reported.
Nine Visionary flats changed hands in May, including six one-bedroom apartments, commanding prices of HK$5.0-5.6 million.
Tin Gwok-fai, Midland real estate manager at the Coastal Skyline branch, said Visionary’s stock is limited, in particular for one-bedroom units. Most of those sold will be leased, he said.
