Low Taek Jho, more popularly known as Jho Low, is a Malaysian financier who has gained international notoriety for his alleged involvement with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), the country’s state fund at the heart of massive anti-corruption probe.
The Penang-born entrepreneur first made headlines in 2009 for spending extravagant sums in New York and Las Vegas parties. Low, who is said to have dated socialite Paris Hilton and supermodel Miranda Kerr, has also been associated with numerous high value transactions, including luxury real estate.
His property portfolio is said to comprise a plush condominium and towering penthouse in New York, a mansion in Beverly Hills and a "high rise lair" in Hong Kong.
In Singapore, Low reportedly owns two prized apartment units at the exclusive Twentyone Angullia Park. Here are five things you need to know about Jho Low’s super-luxurious Singapore condo:
1) It was previously “ The Parisian”
The 54-unit Twentyone Angullia Park in prime district 9 is conveniently located at just 161m from Orchard MRT station. Completed in 2014, it is the flagship project of CS Land, formerly known as China Sonangol.
Prior to that, the freehold site on 21 Angullia Park was The Parisian, a 27-unit project completed in 1986. The project was acquired by developer Overseas Union Enterprise in a collective sale for $228.1 million in December 2006, before being sold to China Sonangol Land for $283 million in 2009.
The project was first launched in May 2012 at an average of $4,143 psf.
2) It’s one of the most expensive homes to have been sold in Singapore
On June 19, 2013, a 7,718 sq ft triplex penthouse on the 34th floor – one of the two units said to be Low’s – was purchased at jaw-dropping $42.9 million ($5,560 psf), making it one of the most expensive homes to have been sold in Singapore.
Based on URA caveats, the second unit, a 2,260 sq ft, three-bedroom unit directly below the first, was sold for $11.53 million ($5,099 psf) on the same day.
Low's 34th floor penthouse unit at Twentyone Angullia Park is one of the most expensive homes in Singapore.
