The first phase of the development was launched amid the property bubble in 1997, and units were subject of many speculators' interest. The intensity spilled over to properties in neighbouring estates in Sham Tseng and Castle Peak, and stimulated a three-fold increase in transactions in the area in September compared with the month before, according to Centaline, Hong Kong's leading real estate agency chain.[2]
