Architect and designer Peter Poon bid goodbye to a Chinatown condominium he’s owned for a decade.

Poon, principal of Peter Poon Architects, along with his wife Mabel, sold their three-bedroom, 1,300-square-foot unit at 158 Hester Street in Chinatown to Zhi Li Realty, banking $1.6 million, according to public records.

Deborah Sabec of Town Residential had the listing.

The Poons bought the unit in 2006 for $978,000.

The pair own another apartment, a 2,300-square-foot penthouse at One Hanson Place in Fort Greene, which they bought for $1.5 million in 2011.

It was one of six unsold penthouses at the property, formerly the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, that were auctioned off by then-owner Canyon Johnson in May of that year. The unit the Poons ultimately bought had been listed for $3.7 million.

Peter Poon Architects is designing the Salvation Army’s new 140,000-square-foot senior housing building in East Harlem, among many other projects, according to its website.
