The most expensive apartment in the world right now belongs to the residential apartments at One Hyde Park in United Kingdom. It has been officially unveiled by the colorful property duo, the Candy Brothers. This most expensive apartment in the world has many amenities, such as a valet, a wine cellar, a private spa, a panic room, and home cooking from a team of award-winning chefs.
The Candy Brothers
There are total of 86 flats in this most expensive apartment in the world. The prices at the highly anticipated Knightsbridge project start at 6.5 million Pounds for a simple one-bedroom flat and soar to 140 million Pound for one of the penthouses. The average is about 6000 Pounds a square foot, higher than any other residential space, according to property experts.
The project of this most expensive apartment in the world is a joint venture between the Candy’s Guernseybased vehicle CPC Group and Waterknights, a company owned by the Qatari prime minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al Thani. The launching of this most expensive apartment in the world is being carefully watched as a litmus test for the financial health of the world’s super-rich and their appetite for London in the wake of the financial crisis.
One Hyde Park
When the brothers started the project of this most expensive apartment in the world, it was roundly mocked for being far too extravagant. With the onslaught of the economic downturn, critics argued the development would flop. However, the Candys claimed 60 PC of this most expensive apartment have been snapped up, mainly by foreign business leaders from the Middle East, Africa, Russia, China and India.
This most expensive apartment in the world has access to a shared cinema, a 21m swimming pool, saunas, a gym, virtual games room and a golf simulator. There is also a private underground tunnel to the Mandarin Oriental next door which gives open access to the five-star facilities and allows a 60-strong army of hotel staff to serve residents in their apartments 24 hours a day.
The Interior of the Apartment
This most expensive flat apartment in the world also included 15 different types of stone and marble from Turkey, Italy, Brazil, China and Egypt as well as £50m of “sparkly” concrete with limestone aggregate.
