Beijing’s most luxurious property, which occupies 1,000 square meters, is selling for 360 thousand yuan to 500 thousand yuan per square meter. All in all, the entire property will cost between 360 million to 500 million yuan.
The building is modeled after the traditional siheyuan (四合院), or Chinese quadrangle residences, which includes a courtyard surrounded by buildings on all four sides. This one, however, is just a tad more extravagant.
The courtyard is on the top floor, offering a magnificent view of the capital city. These are images from one of the four buildings, which was just recently furnished.

The building’s view
Beijing, with over 21 million inhabitants, is known to have some of the most expensive real estate in the world, with prime buildable land fetching more per square foot than the most expensive property in Manhattan. As China’s elite are forking out for swimming pools and rooftop villas, those unable to afford even the most basic apartment have been left to find alternative forms of housing, with some even forced to go underground.
