    Am sure at some point, someone will turn this again into an expensive re-treat for millionaires and the likes.

    I doubt these would qualify any longer as places for millionaires in HK terms.

    Looks like they're taking care of that in DB. See below, one of the six abominations under development by the golf course.....

    I'm glad we didn't move to DB. Its rapidly spiralling downhill.

    Apparently the DB houses were all sold privately so no real information on price but word going around is HK$300-400m each and with a high of HK$800m. Jack Ma of Alibaba is rumoured to be one buyer and another mansion has apparently been assigned to one of the Cha family (owners of the DB development).

    You know, there used to be vegetation on that land -- you know the stuff that helps clean the air. *sigh* The DB golf course is itself an abomination. Pains me to think how that could be a forest...
