From Wikipedia:

MTR Corporation, which had been given the first refusal on the site, paid the Government approximately HK$212 million in cash for the rights for the site. The Government ended up receiving some $8,700 per square foot instead of its initial asking price of $10,000.

Cheung Kong, the enterprise founded by Li Ka Shing, obtained the right for the development of the above-ground structure. With a plot ratio of 15:1, CKH built a 32-storey single tower office-cum-commercial building. The arcade is connected to adjacent properties by the Central Elevated Walkway.
