Jackie Chan Apartments Are Seized and to Be Auctioned
Two apartments in Beijing that are home to movie star Jackie Chan are being forcibly put up for auction. The reason appears to be an ownership dispute.
The adjacent apartments in a residential compound in the capital city’s Dongzhimen district are where Chan and his family have lived since 2007. According to mainland Chinese media they have a combined area of 1,217 m2 (approx. 13,100 sq ft), six bedrooms and three living areas.
The market value of the pair is reported as $14.6 million (RMB100 million), though they are to be offered at auction on Sept. 30 with a starting price of $10.5 million (RMB71.9 million).
Chan is understood to have paid some $4.9 million (RMB33.6 million) for the pair after doing some promotional work for the developer Yujia Real Estate.
