A spokeswoman said: "CPC Group is not able to comment on the sale price or the purchaser. However, global professional valuation companies have valued the finished penthouse at circa £160 million-£175 million."

The development consists of 80 flats in four pavilions in a prime location in the UK capital with views across the city and Hyde Park.

The penthouse was designed by architect Richard Rogers, with management and interior design by Candy & Candy.

Nick and Christian Candy bought the Knightsbridge site of the former 1950s office block Bowater House in 2004 for £150 million.
