    Smile Boost

    The parking lot of my residential tower becomes very expensive due to market speculation. Can I say the price of the parking lot has been boosted to two million dollars? Or any other more appropriate word that you would prefer?

    Thank you!

    Yes, "boosted" works for me. You can also say gone up. (The price has gone up to two million dollars.)
