Among the condos and apartments that hit a new high in terms of psf-price between March 28 and April 12, Martin Place Residences topped the list with the sale of a 1,722 sq ft, three-bedroom-plus-study unit for $4.78 million on April 11. That translates to a price of $2,775 psf.
This surpasses the freehold condo’s previous peak of $2,613 psf that was set in October 2021, when a similar three-bedroom-plus-study unit spanning 1,722 sq ft on the 30th floor was sold for $4.5 million.
The unit sold on April 11 was purchased by the seller from the developer in June 2009 for $2.45 million, or $1,423 psf. Therefore, the seller made a profit of $2.33 million, rendering it the second-most profitable resale transaction logged to date at the condo.
The unit is the first resale transaction registered at the condo to date this year. Last year, the development saw seven units change hands at an average price of $2,553 psf, based on caveats lodged.
