Hope it has a good view. An anonymous Ukrainian man purchased “Flat A” at One Hyde Park for $221 million in 2007 in cash. The man will likely spent 60 million additional pounds (or $98 million) to make renovations to the apartment. It came with bare walls and no furniture. Most of the properties in the complex have already been bought, with over one billion pounds spent on purchasing the 45 properties.
What does the shocking amount of money buy? Lots. The apartment covers the top three floors of the complex. All residents have a staff of 60 Mandarin Oriental hotel trained staff on site 24/7. Flat A comes with bulletproof glass and a panic room. All residents have access to an exclusive private cinema and lots of swimming facilities. Oh, and a 999 year lease.
