代理:甲廈租務暫緩 租金仍平穩


去年疫情緩和,帶動甲廈租務有改善,租金跌幅收窄。有代理行預計,第5波疫情將令甲廈租務短暫放緩,整體上料租金仍平穩。

據該代理行每月商廈租金走勢方面,去年12月份各區租金按月變化不大,普遍升跌約1%,而核心中環區整體甲廈呎租按月升0.6%,而銅鑼灣及港島東,按月跌幅分別約1.4%及1.5%。

縱觀2021年,各區甲廈租金普遍下跌,而跌幅則較2020年大為收窄,中環超甲廈呎租按年跌3%,而整體跌幅約1.7%。跌幅較大落在港島其餘地區,如灣仔全年跌9.4%,為各區中最多,至於2020年表現較佳的鰂魚涌,跌約7.8%。

踏入2022年,整體甲廈租務市場受變種病毒爆發衝擊,整體租務平穩,核心區租務非常淡靜,焦點落在東九龍區。如觀塘宏利廣場全層,面積約3.5萬平方呎,以每平方呎約30元租出。據了解,新租客為以色列大型船務公司ZIM。該租客原租用同區活化商廈項目建生廣場,涉及逾4萬平方呎,是次搬遷稍減少樓面,但可升級至甲廈。

宏利廣場前身為國際貿易中心 (ITT),該廈於過去一年多,錄得多宗大手租務,包括DHL、宏利保險等;其中宏利保險租用14.5萬平方呎樓面,獲大廈命名權。

FedExLandmark East 約3.6萬呎

另一宗較大的租務為觀塘 Landmark East,涉及物業2座低層一層半樓面合共約3.6萬平方呎,成交呎租約28元,新租客為國際大型速遞公司FedEx。至於觀塘綠景NEO大廈錄全層租務,涉及低層約3.15萬平方呎,以每呎30元租出,屬理想水平。據了解,新租客為香港都會大學,作後勤部門之用。

該代理行指,近期核心區中環租務有改善,個別大廈出租情況不錯,個別傳統大廈,租金升約5%,支持整體中環租金轉穩定。該行分析,第5波疫情下,令不少機構需調整策略,部分員工不用返回總部工作,推動靈活辦公營運商趁機擴充。如共享空間WEWORK,近日於中環皇后大道中低層擴充,提供容納200人的辦公點。

後市上,該代理行預計,因整體租務需求轉好,相信核心區中環空置率可改善。九龍區方面,該行料整體租務活動亦平穩,惟短期內出現的第5波疫情,將令租務活動短暫放緩。

甲廈供應高峰 達400萬呎

今年甲廈踏入供應高峰期,共涉約400多萬平方呎,新興商業區如觀塘、黃竹坑等均有新項目。

資料顯示,本港過去兩年供應偏低,2020及21年分別僅有29.7萬及14萬平方呎新甲廈落成,而2022年則踏入近十年高峰,新供應逾400萬平方呎,為近十多年最多的一年。此外,明年新供應同樣高,達320萬平方呎,兩年合共逾700萬平方呎樓面,相等於2017至2021年5年合共數字。

今年新供應分布於不同地區,在新興商業區觀塘,資深投資者林子峰夥拍偉華置業旗下觀塘敬業街41號,將在今年發售。去年發展商為項目完成補地價,涉及金額逾10.13億元。該項目可建總樓面約329,128平方呎,每方呎補價約3,080元。

觀塘敬業街41 今年發售

至於港島新興商業區黃竹坑亦有新項目,信和置業 (00083) 及帝國集團旗下黃竹坑甲廈 Landmark South 將於今年第二季落成,樓高31層,總面積達256,957平方呎。項目結合甲級辦公室、零售、餐飲、藝術與創意社區於一身,現已開始招租。寫字樓單位面積由1,497至1.4萬平方呎,業內人士指,項目意向呎租近30元。

港島甲廈 再獲投資者注視

雖然環球疫情反覆不定,本港近期亦受變種病毒Omicron影響,但去年起工商舖市場仍然處於穩中向好趨勢,商廈市場顯著轉活,投資氣氛持續升溫。

根據土地註冊處及市場資訊顯示,去年港島甲級商廈買賣暢旺,共錄32宗,總成交面積221,813呎,總成交金額超過59億元,平均呎價達28,395元。如果按照區別劃分,中環區佔比例最多,錄得14宗、金鐘9宗、灣仔海傍5宗,上環及黃竹坑分別各有兩宗,其中最為矚目的成交為中環皇后大道中99號中環中心38樓全層,建築面積約25,412呎,以約8.7億元售出,呎價約34,236元。

市場人士認為,今年香港甲級商廈市場仍受投資者注視。市場資訊指,甫踏入2022年1月,港島區甲廈已錄4宗成交,總成交面積達21,143呎,總成交金額達4.6億元;成交包括灣仔海傍的海港中心中層全層,面積約15,929呎,成交價約3.3億元,呎價20,717元,暫成1月最大宗港島甲廈成交。另外,金鐘力寶中心一座 2個單位,亦分別以約3,738萬元及6,261萬元售出。至於上環信德中心西翼一個1,400呎單位則以3,000萬元售,呎價約21,429元。

九龍方面,優質新型工廈亦獲投資者大手入市,最新為麒豐資本旗下新蒲崗活化工廈項目東傲,總樓面約68,710平方呎,以7億連命名權成交,呎價約10,188元,可見工商廈市場頻錄大宗成交。

趁低吸納 盡早入市

市場人士認為,今年多個寫字樓一手項目將陸續推出,包括荃灣沙咀道1號以及宏基資本旗下的黃竹坑宏基匯,有助刺激寫字樓買賣成交宗數。

展望未來,去年由恒地 (00012) 以508億元投得的中環新海濱3號商業用地,項目可建樓面約161.5萬平方呎,每呎樓面地價約31,462元,成交價創賣地史上新高,市場預料基建落成後,將會更鞏固中環作為香港核心商業區的地位,甚至達到世界級水平。而且政府近期正積極展開金鐘廊重建發展計劃,料最快在1至2年內招標,預計將為該區新增逾100萬平方呎的商業樓面。

港島區商廈一向為投資者首選,加上市面上出現不少優質甲廈盤源放售及放租,相信將吸引投資者及企業趁機進駐。另一方面,現時購買商廈沒有特別印花稅和買家印花稅,購買價值約21,739,120元或以上的商廈只需付4.25%釐印費,投資者應把握機會趁低吸納,盡早入市。

恒基下鄉道強拍底價9.2億 區內頻擴版圖共涉四項目

近年恒基併購的土瓜灣舊樓群,陸續踏入收成期,最新下鄉道、麗華街及美華街舊樓、獲土地審裁處批出強拍令,底價為9.25億,對比2018年9月提出申請時市場估值約4.05億,高出約1.28倍。該集團於鄰近一帶4個併購項目,撇除上述項目及去年已完成收購的舊樓,現尚餘2個待批強拍令,意味整個重建區版圖已近乎完成。

據土地審裁處文件顯示,是次獲批強拍令的項目位於下鄉道14、14A及16號、麗華街1、3、5及7號及美華街2、4、6及8號;恒基由申請強拍時持有約90.64%業權,在審訊時增持至約96.63%業權,當時餘下3個物業並未成功收購,包括麗華街1號2樓、美華街4樓,以及部分天台物業,其後今年1月14日前述 (麗華街、美華街) 業主透過法律代表,表示願意接受發展商的收購,換言之,目前僅餘下1個天台物業並未成功收購,該小業主從未出席審訊,亦無法聯繫,屬失蹤小業主。

根據判詞指出,申請人曾委託結構工程師對該舊樓進行結構評估,認為該建築物已達其設計壽命,加上維修情況欠佳,部分設施未能符合現代安全標準和法定要求,而且維修成本與重建成本不成比例,重建發展是合適做法。

涉總樓面82968

現址為一幢早於1960年落成入伙的8層高商住大廈,至今樓齡約62年,地下為商鋪,樓上則為住宅樓層;該項目鄰近港鐵土瓜灣站,具有一定重建價值;地盤面積約9733方呎,若以地積比率8.5244倍作重建發展,涉及可建總樓面約82968方呎,如以底價9.25億計,每方呎樓面地價11148元。

去年底9.6億拍出一幢

資料顯示,恒基於土瓜灣土瓜灣道、下鄉道,以及落山道一帶有4個收購項目,已完成併購的有1個,為土瓜灣落山道58至70號、美華街1至9號及下鄉道18至20號、並於去年10月以底價9.62億成功統一業權;若撇除上述已成功併購及是次獲批強拍令的項目,該公司於毗鄰仍有2個項目尚待批強拍令,意味整個重建區版圖已近乎完成。

毗鄰兩項目尚待批

據恒基年報顯示,計畫將上述地盤土瓜灣道,連同是次獲批強拍令的項目合併發展,範圍包括土瓜灣道68A至76B號、落山道58至76號、下鄉道14至20號、麗華街1至7號、美華街1至9號及2至8號,總地盤面積擴展至約42506方呎,料重建後自佔商住總樓面約374355方呎。換言之,整個重建區的版圖近乎已完成。

Pent-up demand set to spur property market

Property agents expect to see pent-up demand accumulated over the Chinese New Year break amid the fallout from the escalating fifth wave of the Covid pandemic in Hong Kong.

This comes as Hong Kong's property market is expected to witness 92,100 deals in last year totally, involving HK$885.61 billion, a record high in nine years, according to a property agency.

The agency said that there were 57,370 secondary property deals in the year of the Ox worth HK$495.81 billion.

The property agency expects that Hong Kong's residential market will witness an upward trend this year, representing an 8 percent to 10 percent increase, thanks to the strong demand from the market and the prospective anti-pandemic situation.

Meanwhile in the primary market, Far East Consortium International (0035) is set to launch 12 duplex units, measuring from 1,019 to 1,337 square feet, in Mount Arcadia in Shatin via tender on Monday.

The luxury house project will also become the first project to be sold by tender in the Year of the Tiger.

Meanwhile, Henderson Land Development (0012) released 68 flats in the fifth price list at The Harmonie in Cheung Sha Wan yesterday at an average HK$23,316 per sq ft after 5 percent discounts, after selling 204 flats in the first two rounds. The cheapest flat, measuring 322 sq ft, was priced at approximately HK$6.90 million. The latest batch will be launched after the Lunar New Year.

Also, K Wah International (0173) will kick off sales of four mass projects this year, offering over 8,000 flats in total, including 2,200 units in Kam Sheung Road, 4,100 units in Kai Tak and 1,880 units at Lohas Park in Tseung Kwan O.

The developer revealed that its primary deals in 2021 reached 17,200, a 18 percent growth year on year and estimated that house prices will rise 3 to 5 percent in 2022 as a result of the popularity of the urban and rail projects.

After the Lunar New Year break, K Wah will roll out four houses with gardens, measuring from 3,183 to 3,220 sq ft.

Henderson gets nod for compulsory sale

Henderson Land Development (0012) has been approved to do a compulsory sale of some old buildings in To Kwa Wan with a reserve price of HK$925 million.

This suggests that the owner of the rooftop will receive the highest compensation of nearly HK$11 million in proportion to the reserve price, compared to the court's existing use value of HK$5.10 million.

The rooftop owner, who could not be reached during the hearing, has 1.1749 percent of the entire project.

The buildings are No 14, 14A and 16 Ha Heung Road, No 1, 3, 5 and 7 Lai Wa Street, as well as No 2, 4, 6 and 8 Mei Wa Street, covering a gross floor area of around 83,000 square feet.

The developer, which owns 96.63 percent of the old buildings, plans to rebuild them together with the nearby renewal projects in To Kwa Wan Road and Lok Shan Road into a 4.25 million-square-foot slot, according to its annual report.

The developer secured the green light in October for a compulsory sale of the land in Lok Shan Road.

Covid-19 looms large over Hong Kong’s office market as companies implement work-from-home

Work-from-home trend will be a long-term negative for Hong Kong’s office sector, UBS analyst Mark Leung said in a Spotify podcast

4.6 million sq ft of new office supply will be completed in Hong Kong this year, the most since 6.8 million sq ft in 1998, according to a property consultancy

The office market in Hong Kong will continue to be disrupted by the work-from-home trend this year as the coronavirus pandemic rages on, a UBS real estate analyst said.

With new office supply coming on to the market this year, more multinational firms may take the opportunity to consolidate their office needs and revisit their real estate strategy.

“We generally believe the trend of work-from-home will be a long-term negative to the sector”, which could lead to rising office vacancies as new buildings are completed, Mark Leung, associate director of Hong Kong and China real estate research at UBS, said in a Spotify podcast.

“We believe work-from-home will continue to be widely implemented among foreign enterprises,” said Leung. “However, local and Chinese firms remain reluctant to adopt flexible working initiatives due to cultural differences.”

In the past, flexible working was not that common in Hong Kong because of the small living space constraints in the city. However, after the outbreak of Covid-19, the work-from-home trend accelerated to contain the spread of the disease.

Hong Kong is currently battling the fifth wave of the coronavirus outbreak. The rising number of untraceable Covid-19 cases will prevent any easing of social-distancing curbs when they are due to expire later this month and more workers will need to be ordered to work from home to reduce social interactions.

A real estate consultancy estimates that some 4.6 million square feet of new grade A office supply will be completed in Hong Kong this year, the most since 6.8 million sq ft came online in 1998. However, most of the new supply will be in noncore areas, such as Kowloon East and Island East, while a quarter will be in the New Territories.

“We are also concerned [about] the long-term rent and capital value for the sector due to oversupply,” Leung said. He said that an additional 17 per cent of new office space will come on stream in the next five to eight years, which may need over 10 years to be fully absorbed.

Leung also noted that Chinese companies, which used to account for 30 per cent of the leasing market in Central, the city’s main central business district, before the outbreak of the pandemic, has now been reduced to 21 per cent.

“We believe more multinational firms may take the opportunity to consolidate their office and adopt an agile working strategy,” Leung said. He added that the ongoing outflow of foreign expats because of the lack of visibility on the reopening of Hong Kong’s border to international travellers will also put pressure on the office leasing demand going forward.

UBS expects rent, cap rates and capital values to remain largely flat this year.

The property consultancy, meanwhile, expects the city’s grade A office market in Hong Kong to remain a tenant’s market, with overall rents likely to rise by around 1 per cent this year.

The consultancy expects core area rents to continue to outperform, with rents likely to increase by 4 per cent on the back of improving leasing sentiment and lack of new supply.

However, areas with high existing vacancy and new supply, such as Kowloon East and Island East, were likely to face downward pressure on rents. The property consultancy forecast rents to fall by 2.5 per cent in Kowloon East and by 3 per cent in Island East.

Office rents have slumped by 27 per cent from their peak to late 2021, according to Morgan Stanley.
