Qatari Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, also known as the man who bought London, has decided to sell part of his real estate.
The billionaire plans to sell not one, but two sought-after real estate properties — the One Hyde Park penthouse in Knightsbridge for $281 million and a property near Belgrave Square for $192 million. These assets amount to almost $500 million, which the friend of King Charles aims to divest from.
During the period from 2000 to 2013, the former head of Qatar’s Investment Authority made several investments, including in Harrods and the Shard.
His son, Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, recently made headlines for his $6.3 billion offer for «Manchester United.» The six-story Forbes House in the Belgravia area covers over an acre of prime real estate between Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park in central London. It’s almost a palace with 20 bedrooms, a carriage driveway, and parking for 32 cars.
The penthouse in the luxurious One Hyde Park complex in Knightsbridge is one of four units in the tower designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. The building is a joint venture between Project Grande Limited, CPC Group, and Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani.
The stunning penthouse at One Hyde Park epitomizes British wealth and luxury. The 18,000 square-foot penthouse includes five bedrooms, a Japanese-style kitchen, a 750-bottle wine room, a spa center with a sauna and steam room, a fitness studio, and two outdoor terraces.
The Qatari politician, with a net worth of $1.2 billion, might decide against selling these real estate gems if potential buyers overlook the asking prices, as reported by Bloomberg.
