    let's see...

    what is important to you?
    how far are you willing to commute?
    do you want to be close to the nightlife?
    do you have a family or are you single?
    do you want to be in the "heart" of the city?
    or do you want to be removed and in a quiet "suburb"?
    do you travel a lot, so need to be close to the airport?
    do you want your building to have facilities such as tennis, swimming pool or gym?

    you need to give us a little more info before we can help you.

    Building is to have modern Gym and pool
    Budget has gone up to $50k-$55 per month.
    Hopefully should find something good for this amount

    well, you it depends(I would not want to live right in the heart of TST again... i did it as a 22 year old and it was great! but i wouldn't want to do it now 33yr old)... you could try...

    1) Jardine's Lookout (above Happy Valley)
    2) Ho Man Tin/Kowloon Tong (Kowloon)
    3) Mid-Levels
    4) Discovery Bay(quite a commute to TST though...about 1 hour or so)
    5)Clear Water Bay(again quite a commute, about 45 minutes-1 hour)

    wow, that's a lot. A condo in Repulse Bay? The Peak?

    You might want to consider encashing some of it instead

    Does it have to be fully furnished? That will really limit your choices.
