This just in from London:   Asian investors are purchasing central London property in unprecedented numbers and now account for 20 percent of all new build sales, a new report concludes...

“While the market has returned to life, after it pretty much shut-down in 2008, current international investment demand is almost totally concentrated on London and is primarily coming from Asia,” said Knight Frank residential research director Liam Bailey.

Of the investor buyers last year, 49 percent were Asian, with Chinese and Hong Kong investors represented the largest group, 11 percent, followed by 10 percent from Singapore. Despite tales of free-spending sheiks and Russian oligarchs, only 3.5 percent of the buyers last year were from the Middle East; 3.1 percent were from Russia.

Although he wouldn't release the sale price, seller Mohamed Hadid confirmed that it was in excess of the previous record of more than $46.5 million set this spring in Colorado, falling between $50 million and the asking price of $72 million. In Los Angeles County, sale prices can take more than a month to appear on the public record.

Designer-developer Hadid had listed the walled and gated estate 15 months ago at $85 million.

The 48,000-square-foot estate, called Le Belvedere, was bought in the name of a limited liability company, not an individual. "Even I don't know who bought it," said Hadid, who has built Ritz-Carlton hotels, office buildings and king-size estates nationwide during his 30-year-plus career.
