“They wanted the best of the best, and the Fairmont suited them,” says property manager Cameron Fazli. “It is 5-star, it is in a great location, amazing views, it is new, it is ultra luxury. It is exactly what they wanted, and that’s what they got.”
Cameron and Sasan Fazli won’t confirm or deny reports that their client is a prince from the Middle East, but do say the buyer paid $55 million in cash.
In June, he bought a penthouse here for $25 million, the most expensive condo sale in Vancouver. He has since added three sub-penthouses for a total of more than 15,000 square feet. So far this year in Vancouver, 400 properties have sold for over 3 million dollars, but the deal at the Fairmont is in a league of its own.
“Rather than an investment, it’s a lifestyle decision,” says Cameron Muir with B.C. Real Estate Association. “So, they are purchased almost as recreation property by international wealthy set, if you will.” – Global News
