World's Most Expensive Apartments Opens In London

London has shot to the top of world’s most luxurious property list with the launch yesterday of One Hyde Park, a series of glass apartment blocks in Knightsbridge, where the average unit costs £6,000 a square foot and a penthouse will set you back a shocking £140 million.

Over 300 celebrity guests were invited to an extravagant launch party yesterday for the expansion which has Hyde Park as its back garden and Harrods Food Hall for its local supermarket.

Built by developers the Candy Brothers, backed by a group owned by the Qatari prime minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al Thani.

Populace of One Hyde Park will be able to call on butlers and valets to make their life easier, while meals can be troll eyed in from next door Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s two restaurants, one of which is overseen by Heston Blumenthal. The apartments are slanting so that most of them have a view of the park, while those at the very front will look across the road to Harvey Nichols department store.

Facilities comprise a cinema, a swimming pool, a gym, a golf simulator and a wine cellar. Bookmark and Share
