Sun Hung Kai Properties told a different story yesterday on the controversial sale of a luxury penthouse at The Arch in West Kowloon ahead of questions to be raised about the transaction in the Legislative Council today. In a statement issued last night, the developer said the penthouse buyer bought only one flat, instead of four as previously stated. The company originally announced last month that it sold a 5,353 sq ft penthouse at a record $168 million, equivalent to $31,500 per sq ft, to a businessman from Beijing. Late last month, Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency's executive director Victor Lui Ting told the South China Morning Post that the penthouse buyer bought three more luxury flats for between $15,000 and $17,000 per sq ft at a 0.5 to 1 per cent discount. Sun Hung Kai last night said the buyer introduced a friend who bought another flat at $90.09 million without any discount, but it did not say whether this flat was one of the three mentioned last month. The first penthouse deal had still not shown up in the Land Registry because it involved a large sum of money, the statement said. Democratic Party chairman Lee Wing-tat is pressuring the government to investigate the deal and has asked it to respond today during question time in Legco.
