Falconridge - 35 Barker Road [1981-2011]
I can't believe this record-setting property still does not have a place on Gwulo. This site was sold for $1.82 billion HKD in May.
The design of the present building (completed 1981) has always struck me as a bit odd, but I rather like it. It reminds me of fire halls in the British countryside.
Does anyone know about the history of the property? The Hui family (of Central Development) bought the site in the 1970s according to one source. I have not been able to find the original owner of the property, which according to the 1924 map should be 455 The Peak, R.B.L. 150. Unfortunately, I found no record about previous residents at this address.
