But it’s not just living spaces in Hong Kong that are expensive – a car space in Kowloon City district was just rented out for HK$10,000 (US$1,274) a month, making it the city’s most expensive rented car park.
Property agents confirmed the 135 sq ft park was rented on Monday at the luxury Ultima project in the residential Ho Man Tin area.
According to South China Morning Post, the rent for the parking space is more than what some people pay for some of the city’s smaller apartments.
