The easy answer is because someone was willing to pay that much. That said :eek: even winning the Euro Lottery wouldn't provide enough cash to buy one of these!

I know this block, it's huge.

I suppose that the reason that it's worth so much is that the market in that area is very very limited, not much like this ever comes up. Also the sort of people who are likely to buy it are not particularly price-sensitive.

the flat's exceptional "lateral space" justified its premium price. The new owner would not have to endure pollution, thanks to a continuous supply of purified air. "It will be just like living in Tibet," she said.
Didn't you guys read the article? It will be just like living in Tibet. Of course its worth 27m. Sheesh.

Does it come with Chinese soldiers ready to fire upon your guests if they try anything?

My dad sold his flat in Richmond for approximately 18 times what he originally paid for it last year. He'd owned the damn thing less than 10 years, too.

When I move in I will invite you guys round for the housewarming. If you're driving parking is about 300 quid a night.
