China is looking to increase its diplomatic presence in Costa Rica, with the purchase of two hectares for US$18 million dollars, located in the Hill Park Condominium in Montes de Ocar, San Pedro.
Currently, the China’s embassy is scattered in several properties in Rohrmoer, on the west side of San José, starting at the corner across from the home of former president Oscar Arias, who in 2007 established diplomatic relations with China.
On its website, Hill Park promotes itself as “An innovative place in a natural environment… Five beautiful and strong Condominium Towers rise in a natural environment, in total harmony with the environment. Nature is an integral part of this Premium Condominium concept where you and your family will enjoy beautiful gardens and large green areas within secure and exclusive surroundings, rarely seen in the east of San Jose. We are confident that this is truly a unique investment opportunity in which the luxury and comfort, in perfect harmony with nature, will become a part of their daily lives.
