The luxurious residential complex Opus Hong Kong, located in the Mid-Levels, has been in the residential market spotlight since units first went up for sale in 2012. Five of the flats had previously been snapped up for extravagant amounts ranging from HK$369 to HK$455 million, but one Danish buyer recently took it to another level, splashing out HK$498 million for one of the apartments.
Specifically, the buyer paid HK$497.9 million for the duplex located on the ground and first floor of the building, according to Land Registry records released yesterday. Covering 5,188 square feet, the apartment totes two parking spaces, a 3,245-square-foot garden as well as a private swimming pool. And reduced down from the HK$520 million listing price, it’s pretty much a steal.
At HK$95,971 per square foot, the purchase beats a property record set in April, when a buyer with a Singaporean passport scooped up a Hong Kong apartment for a princely HK$93,000 per square foot.
Daniel Aaxman, the director of Lead Connection Ltd., is shown to have purchased the property under his company’s name. The Danish passport carrier’s address is registered in Schindellegi, Switzerland.
Opus, built in 2012 by Swire Properties, is located at 53 Stubbs Road, on the Mid-Levels of Victoria’s Peak. The building contains only 12 units, with two duplexes on the lower levels and ten others occupying one floor. All of them offer a stunning view of Hong Kong’s famous Victoria Harbor. Brainchild of renowned Canadian architect Frank Gehry, the high-rise showcases a special spiraled design.
All six buyers came from Cambodia, Denmark, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
