A single parking space in Hong Kong has sold for a record $1.3 million.

The stall is located within a luxury development on Mount Nicholson that has a view of downtown across Victoria Bay, the BBC reported. A home in the area was recently rented for $210,000 per month.

The reported price for the parking space eclipses a previous high of $969,000 that was paid for a spot in a downtown office building in 2019.
