BRUSSEL – Wonen mag dan voor steeds meer gezinnen onbetaalbaar worden, er zijn nog ultrarijken die niet kijken op een paar tienduizend euro meer of minder per vierkante meter.

De absolute toplocatie, als we vastgoedspecialist Engel & Völkers mogen geloven, is de Avenue d’Ostende in Monaco, waar afgelopen jaar een penthouse met zicht op de Monegaskische jachthaven werd verkocht voor 240 miljoen euro. De Arabische koper betaalde omgerekend 148.000 euro per vierkante meter.Volgens Engel & Völkers, dat wereldwijd actief is in het absolute topsegment van de vastgoedmarkt, is dat de hoogste prijs per vierkante meter die ooit voor een penthouse werd betaald.

Dat Monaco niet de goedkoopste plek is, weet allicht iedereen, maar dat de baai van Romazzino in Sardinië op de tweede plaats komt met 100.000 euro per vierkante meter, klinkt verrassend. Veel verrassender in elk geval dan Londen dat met de wijk Knightsbridge in Kensington de derde plaats opeist.

De Azurenkust, die eigenlijk in het verlengde ligt van Monaco, is – niet onverwacht – goed vertegenwoordigd met Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat en Cannes. Frankrijk is een populair land, zo blijkt, want Parijs prijkt met de Avenue Montaigne op de zesde plaats en is dus goed voor de helft van de plaatsen in de top zes. Verder wordt het lijstje vervolledigd met nog drie Zwitserse, even veel Duitse, twee Spaanse locaties en één Oostenrijkse.

Op de laatste plaats prijkt de populaire vakantiebestemming Mallorca met Cap de Formentor, het noordelijkste punt van het eiland, waar kopers tot 12.200 euro betalen per vierkante meter. Dat is minder dan een twaalfde van het penthouse in Monaco, maar nog steeds zowat het tienvoudige van de prijs van een modaal huis in ons land.

‘We stellen vast,’ zegt Philippe Rosy van Engel & Völkers, ‘dat de hoogste prijzen gehaald worden op extreem exclusieve locaties waar tegelijk ook zeer weinig aanbod is. Door de schaarste en omdat het gaat om felbegeerde liggingen, stijgen de prijzen er ver boven het gemiddelde.’

Engel & Völkers Sint-Martens-Latem was one of the main sponsors of the benefit concert organized by the Lions Club Gent Gandalys from the 25th of March untill the 27th of March.

The featured artists were “SCALA & Kolacny Brothers”, a world renowned Belgian girls choir, conducted by Stijn Kolacny and arranged and accompanied by Steven Kolacny on the piano. Formed in 1996 and winning the Belgian ‘Choir of the Year’-contest in 2000, they have made five studio albums, starting with On The Rocks in 2002.

The benefit concert was spread over 3 days with 1 performance a day.  The venue, a local peugeot and volvo dealership was transformed to a concert venue, seating around 600 people and was completely sold out. Because it was the last concert of “Scala & Kolacny Brothers” in Belgian, they flew back from New York just to give this concert, before kicking of their USA and CANADA tour. So the total of availible tickets, around 1800, flew as quickly out of the door as it toke Scala to get back to Belgium. For tickets to one of their concerts as well as the locations: Scala & Kolacny Brothers Official Website

The E&V Sint-Martens-Latem team was present on the first of three concert evenings, to admire the powerfull voices of the singers as well as to mingle and give away 200+ GG’s to the attendees.
