China has been undergoing a notable intense renewal and transformation process in the past few years. This evolution hasn’t gone unnoticed, attracting the most renowned international engineers and designers to the scene.
Amongst these include the famous Canadian architect Frank Owen Gehry, who has been labeled as “the most important architect of our age” by Vanity Fair. The prize-winning architect is the creator of the Titanium covered Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, to name but a few. In collaboration with Swire Properties, Gehry has fulfilled an ambitious real estate development in the hills of Hong Kong, between Happy Valley and The Peak.
Gehry chose “Opus” as the name for his recently launched creation. The building is immersed in nature in a vibrant green setting which dominates the city below, providing a magnificent view from the lush hills of The Peak, positioned at the entrance of the urban center.
The luxury building develops over 12 levels and it is composed of 600 high-end apartments. The lucky residents of this eye-catching creation will be able to enjoy direct access to the rooftop swimming pool, whilst the apartments at the two inferior levels enjoy a private garden. Without question each of the properties are finished to an immaculate standard with luxury furniture and fittings, along with the best of facilities. The undulate façade of the structure works in perfect harmony with the luxuriant surrounding nature.
According to a market survey carried out by Cushman & Wakefield, one of the most prestigious consultancy groups in the real estate field, the area in which Opus lies is expected to become the most expensive residential area in the world in the next fifteen years, exceeding Fifth Avenue in New York. To reinforce this theory, a 6,683sqm property has just been sold on the ninth floor of this impressive residential complex at an astronomical sum of 58 million dollars, at a value of more than 8,000 dollars per square meter. The apartment in question, is without any doubt one of the most expensive refined residential properties in Hong Kong, and possibly the world.
The overwhelming demand for these exclusive apartments in this elegant building is leading to an increase in the selling price. It is estimated that prices may increase by 15% by the end of the year.
