The sale of a four-bedroom unit at Ardmore Park was the most profitable condo resale transaction during the week of May 28 to June 4. The 2,885 sq ft unit on the 22nd floor changed hands for $11.85 million ($4,108 psf) on May 29. The seller bought the unit in January 2020 for $9.2 million ($3,189 psf). This means they made a profit of $2.65 million after owning the unit for just under 4½ years, which works out to a capital gain of 29% for the seller.
