Anacapri Park Island Prices Announced

Below is the price list for Anacapri on Park Island released today by Sun Hung Kai.
The list is for the "middle apartments", which means those which are not ground floor with garden units, or top floor with roof units.
Prices seem reasonable, and are priced at between 7000 to 8000 per square foot. So for a 1000 square foot apartment in Anacapri, you are looking at around HKD $7-8 million.

It's also well-known that the develop…

Park Island prices hit new record in 2011

An upper level apartment in Block 17, unit J, sold at $6295 per square foot on 25 November 2011. And an 23 November 2011 an upper level apartment in Block 2 unit C, sold at $6323 per square foot. Really quite suprising given the current turmoil on the global financial markets.
Rentals still seem to be between $17 to $20 per square foot range.
