Candy & Candy: From Rich to Richer
The billionaire brothers – placed at the 52 positions of 2010’s rich list by the Estates Gazette – grew up in Surrey. However, they started in totally different fields. Only in 1995 did they start thinking about entering the London house market. Thanks to a family loan, they managed to study the perfect location to start. That’s how they decided on Earl’s Court, where they bought a small one-bedroom flat. They lived there for eighteen months while renovating it. Then they sold it with a £50,000 profit. From that moment on, they could not be stopped.
But do you know the big break that made them ultra-wealthy? After founding “Candy & Candy” and accumulating contacts and resources, they invested in the One Hyde Park project. They started from the prime estate location of Knightsbridge. Then they hired famous architect Richard Rogers for the exterior while they dealt with the interior design. The result was a glass and bronze structure that gave a contemporary rendition of London’s style. Besides, the extreme sophistication of the ambiances; exclusive retail units, deluxe amenities and a luxurious atmosphere was perfect. In the meantime, they broke the record for most expensive residential development in the world. In fact, some of their penthouse apartments sold at some of the highest prices on the record.
Also, they are well-known for their projects in Monaco e in Russia. La Belle Epoque Penthousein Monaco, with its refined aesthetic, recalls some of the Belle Epoque’s influences in its iconic building. Various apartment complexes, like the one in Hans Crescent, have been their main focus.
The Firm Today
After more than two decades the brothers decided to part ways: while Nick is leading the old firm – now renamed “Candy Property” – Christian has tried the venture of propriety developer, with CPS. A new project by Nick Candy features a mega-mansion of 250 million, London’s largest residence after Buckingham Palace.
