LEVEL best

New properties in Mid-Levels are few and far between, which is why they command top prices and still attract willing buyers.

Height of luxury

Introduction

The Peak is the jewel in the crown of Hong Kong's real estate sector. It is not only a world-famous tourist destination, but also where privileged members of society have lived since early colonial times.

Living the high life

The Mid-Levels is a high-end residential district characterised by limited supply, extending as far as the University of Hong Kong in the west, and the slopes of Wan Chai and Causeway Bay in the east.

Stepping up

Rising from Central, through Mid-Levels and all the way to Conduit Road, the 800-metre long Central-Mid-Levels Escalator is the longest outdoor escalator in the world. It is a popular film location and one scene from Batman blockbuster, The Dark Knight, was shot there.

Owners face eviction as law on forced sales bites

A year after the government made it easier for developers to force the sale of old buildings, about 10 middle-class residents in Mid-Levels face leaving homes they want to keep.

Owners of Arts Mansion at 31 Conduit Road will know today whether any developer is interested in buying out the 50-year-old building, which the majority owners have offered for tender.

Low-rise buildings are appealing

Expatriates in Hong Kong prefer low-rise residential buildings to high-rises because of the greater privacy they can enjoy, according to Centaline Property. However, the shortage of land in Hong Kong means that low-rises are few and far between.

Owners warned to be realistic

The local property market continues to sizzle, and Cheung Kong added fuel to the fire when it purchased two luxury residential sites in Ho Man Tin and Hung Hom for HK$7.61 billion at a government land auction on Tuesday.

The unexpectedly high price was 20 per cent higher than market forecasts, and this is expected to drive local property prices even higher.

A haven on the hillside

Comprising Bonham Road, Caine Road, Upper Albert Road, Kennedy Road to the north and Conduit Road to the south, Mid-Levels towers above Central, Admiralty and Sheung Wan with a sea of apartment buildings - old and new.

Level playing field vital for property market

Our property market is febrile at any time. But few one-off events have stimulated it so much as Henderson Land's announcement last year of 24 sales at a luxury Mid-Levels block, including a world-record HK$88,000 per sq ft, or HK$439 million, for a top-floor duplex.

Space for two cars at The Terrace

Car owners may have a headache when buying an apartment in Hong Kong as most apartments do not come with a parking space.

Developer goes too far with numbers game

In a city where superstition is so keenly observed, it is not surprising that the property industry has tailored developments to meet demand. The assumption is that no one wants to live on a floor that includes the unlucky Chinese number four or its Western counterpart 13, but they are willing to pay top dollar for those with the auspicious number eight.

Social climbing

Mid-Levels has been one of Hong Kong Island's most desirable residential districts since the mid-19th century. The pretentious often include the tag 'Mid-Levels' on their business cards, more as a snobbish social statement than to provide an easily identifiable address.
