Wealthy youth with 2 bodyguards fails to secure unit at ‘In One 1B’ launch in Ho Man Tin (Updated: 1pm)


26th March 2023 – (Hong Kong) The highly anticipated In One 1B residential project in Ho Man Tin, developed by the Chinachem Group in collaboration with MTR Corporation, saw the launch of its first round of sales yesterday, with 179 units up for grabs. However, the buzz surrounding the launch was not just due to the property’s prime location, but also the appearance of a mysterious figure, believed to be a member of the “rich second generation”, who had visited the show unit with two bodyguards earlier in the week.

Yesterday, the young man made another appearance at the sales office, dressed almost identically to his previous visit, sporting a full cheesy white VERSACE suit, a PRADA sling bag and an Hermes belt. This time, however, the elusive figure was seen queuing with the rest of the crowd to select his unit, flanked once again by his two foreign bodyguards.

It remains unknown whether the young man was successful in securing a unit at In One 1B. According to agents present at the sales launch, the true identity of the figure remains a mystery. However, sources have revealed to local media reporters that the figure left empty-handed, unable to secure a unit despite his best efforts.

In One 1B offers a range of one to three-bedroom units, with 10 one-bedroom units, 123 two-bedroom units, and 46 three-bedroom units available for purchase. The practical area of the units ranges from 336 to 941 square feet, with a discounted sale price of HKD 7.8684 million to HKD 30.4529 million, and a discounted price per square foot of HK$21,850 to HK$34,374. The average discounted price per square foot for the entire development is HK$27,083.

The project’s four 4-bedroom units will be put up for tender today (26th March), with high expectations for the sale of these larger units. In One 1B is located in a prime location in Ho Man Tin, with easy access to public transport and a wide range of amenities in the surrounding area.

The first round of sales for In One 1B has seen strong demand, with many potential buyers eagerly queuing up to select their units. The appearance of the ‘Rich Second Generation’ figure only added to the hype surrounding the development, and his unsuccessful attempt to secure a unit is a reminder of the intense competition in the Hong Kong property market.

The two bodyguards were keeping an eye on their young boss.
