    It hasn't become legal yet. There are some trials, and lots of discussion but it isn't legal.

    No worries. I happened to read about it recently, otherwise I wouldn't have known it myself.

    I find it hard to believe myself. I live in the shitty part of Tai Kok Tsui and they are selling the bays for $2.2m. Mathemaically you would need to rent out for $4-$6k to get a 2-3% return, and that is what I was told I could get. It's a tall skinny 60 story single tower building with only 42 bays, so maybe this is what makes them so valuable? They used to have a lottery every 6 months to see who could rent them out for the next 6 months and then if you didn't win the lottery you would have to park over in Metro Harbour view around the corner which is much bigger.

    Not metro harbour view but close to it. MHV is a much bigger estate than mine with a lot more carpark spaces, maybe thats what makes the ones in my building so damn expensive.
