Bender - just out of interest, if you don't like an areas that you live in, why would you live there? And for so long? My guess would be that you might be one of those people who complains about things no matter where you are!
My observation is that so many people are moving to Park Island because they like it there so much! That's certainly the impression I get when I speak to residents. And I know more and more people living in Central who come visit PI and then move there when they realize all the benefits. Certainly its great for dog owners also (which I think was one of the original questions in this thread).
In terms of prices etc, here is some good data: Centadata - PARK ISLAND's Estate Page
You will see prices have been steadily rising, and is now at record highs (but still in my view quite affordable). The reason prices have been rising is because of increased demand. And the demand has increased because people like Park Island!
Also, I think as more foreigners and ex-pats move there, the feel of the place will change, hopefully for the positive. You can already see that happening with some of the new reataurants, etc. What you can do is make suggestions to the Park Island Management Committee if you are unhappy about how things are run. To me, the management seems excellent. Again, better than I have seen anywhere else in HK (and I have lived in many places all over HK in the past).
Can you name one development, anywhere in HK, that is of a better construction quality?
