英皇西環舊樓批強拍高陞大樓收逾91%業權項目底價2.59億


市區地皮供應有限,財團積極收購舊樓,由英皇收購的西環高陞大樓,新獲批強拍令,目前已收約91.89%業權,底價為2.59億,較19年市場估值約2.4億高約8%。

據土地審裁處資料,目前英皇持有高陞大樓91.89%,僅餘3伙未獲收購,分別為1樓A室、C室及3樓B室,涉及3組小業主。據判詞指出,該項目樓齡已高,不少單位狀況甚差,現時強拍申請人已持有逾80%業權,故重建屬合理做法。

可建樓面約1.9萬呎

項目底價為2.59億,較19年申請強拍時,市場估值2.4億高出約8%。該項目為商住物業,地盤面積2144方呎,可建樓面約1.9萬方呎,樓齡約55年,鄰近西營盤港鐵站,具有一定重建價值。

翻查資料,英皇去年宣布與慈善機構新家園協會合作,並將上述項目約22個單位發展成「共.融舍」房屋共享計畫,並以象徵式1元租金租予新家園負責營運,為期1年。

底價較19年高8%

私人土地供應減少,使發展商也積極透過舊樓收購增加土地儲備,英皇近年頻以強拍重建增加土地儲備。

業主阻尖區舊樓強拍敗訴

資料顯示,英皇集團早前向土地審裁處申請強拍筲箕灣南安街仲齊大廈,項目估值約1.75億,項目地盤面積3000方呎,現為樓高8層商住物業,早於1964年落成入伙,樓齡55年。

該集團於鄰近亦有收購項目,如筲箕灣南安街73號德福樓、75號的合榮大廈,以及77號的茂發樓,料將會整合發展。

另外,鄧成波家族旗下尖沙嘴加連威老道65至73號舊樓,原於去年7月批出強拍,底價逾19億,惟於拍賣前夕,遭小業主向高等法院提出反對,並批出暫緩令。據法院最新資料顯示,法庭判小業主敗訴,維持原有強拍安排。

運輸署22元呎 租九龍灣宏天廣場全層

整體東九龍租務淡靜,九龍灣宏天廣場全層,以每呎約22元租出,新租客為政府部門。

消息指,九龍灣宏天廣場中層全層,面積約2.8萬平方呎,以每月62萬元租出,呎租約22元,租金較去年跌約1成。據了解,新租客為政府部門,料作運輸署辦公室之用。事實上,該廈不少樓面亦由政府部門租用,包括社會福利署等。

核心區甲廈租務方面,消息指,美國銀行中心中層09室,面積約674平方呎,以每呎約55元租出。另同安蘭街18號中層,面積約2,464平方呎,成交呎租約45元。

灣仔海外信託銀行大廈 享維港景

灣仔海外信託銀行大廈位處告士打道,最大優點是享有無遮擋全維港海景,非常舒適。

告士打道為灣仔商廈集中地,交通上,由港鐵灣仔站步行至該廈約10分鐘,附近亦有多條巴士綫可到達。值得一提,物業樓下有接駁天橋,前往灣仔北,而日後亦鄰近港鐵會展站,屆時交通可望更便利。物業設有多層停車場,駕車人士可從大廈謝斐道入口進入停車場。

飲食配套上,上班一族可到附近謝斐道及駱克道,有多間茶餐廳以及酒樓可供選擇,或前往灣仔北新鴻基中心華潤大廈,不僅有酒樓、酒吧等,亦有新落成的酒店,有特色餐廳提供。

實用達8 全層用家為主

大廈於1978年落成,樓高29層,物業分別設有告士打道及謝斐道入口,均可前往物業電梯大堂。大廈入口、電梯大堂等早年曾翻新,加設電子水牌,整體觀感仍勝同區乙廈。

標準樓面全層面積由6,999至7,344平方呎,該廈主要為全層用家為主,較少間細單位。間隔上四正,實用率高達8成。

位處單邊 享優質海景

物業最大優點在景觀上,因大廈位處單邊,前面亦沒有任何遮擋,可享優質海景。

買賣方面,2015年,由中原地產創辦人施永青等持有的灣仔海外信託銀行大廈20樓連車位,以1.16億元成交,呎價15,797元,持貨5年帳面獲利逾半億元,呎價一度創新高。

2017年,物業中高層全層,面積約6,984平方呎,以約1.222億元易手,呎價高見17,500元。大廈對上一宗買賣為2019年,物業全層單位連車位,以7,800萬易手,平均呎價1.13萬,買家為上市公司海峽石油化工控股 (00852) 。

租務上,去年大廈錄3宗租務成交,其中低層單位,面積約7,344平方呎,以每月約26.4萬元租出,呎租約36元。今年物業僅錄一宗租務,涉及中層全層,面積約7,344平方呎,成交呎租約28元。

商務氣氛轉好 旺角錄疫後最大租務

資料顯示,今年第一季錄得約1,304宗舖位租賃成交,總金額約1.35億元,比上季約1,442宗及1.38億元水平相若,至於按年比較則上升逾五成。踏入第二季,疫情進一步緩和,租務活動轉活,各核心區均錄舖位租務成交。

迪生創建300 租彌敦道舖

旺角區方面,近日錄得數宗商舖租務個案,更罕有出現數百萬月租成交個案。迪生創建指,與招商永隆銀行達成協議,租用旺角彌敦道636號銀行中心廣場地下01至03、06至19號舖及1樓17號舖,租期由2021年8月至2027年,為期6年,涉及租金約2.1626億元,月租涉及約300萬元。

涉及物業旺角銀行中心廣場,為區內核心零售地段,旁為港鐵站出口,人流暢旺。舖位面積約1.2萬平方呎,現時由周大福、屈臣氏等租用。是次新租務涉及月租約300萬元,按金額計為去年疫情爆發後,最大宗舖位租務成交。對上一宗較大手商租務,為中環興瑋大廈兩層,獲恒生銀行以每月120萬元租用。

迪生創建業務主要為時裝、手錶等,旗下品牌包括百貨Harvey Nichols、美容專門店BEAUTY AVENUE等,而集團位於旺角朗豪坊商場的BEAUTY AVENUE涉及逾萬平方呎,據悉租約即將屆滿。業界人士估計,不排除租用銀行中心舖作搬遷。

BALENO亞皆老街舖 月租60

另外,區內錄得時裝店租務,涉及旺角亞皆老街24至26號地下連閣樓,面積合共約2,556平方呎,由時裝連鎖店BALENO以每月60萬承租,平均呎租234元。該時裝店去年尾曾短租舖位,涉及約半年,如今轉為長租。翻查資料,舖位曾由蘋果牌牛仔服裝自用,兩年前遷出。

旺角吉舖數目多,個別舖位由短租店承接。旺角西洋菜南街14至24號榮地下,面積約1,600平方呎,獲佐丹奴以月約20萬元短租。該品牌早年曾租用物業,今年初完結遷出,如今以短租形式重返。據了解,品牌早年以90萬元租用舖位,新租金跌逾77%。

分析指,疫情緩和,消費氣氛轉好,令零售商感興趣開業,加上舖租較高峰期大跌,租務明顯上升。旺角區向來集合本地及旅客消費,旅客暫未重返,仍有本土客支持,令零售商趁租金下跌,重新租舖開業迎商機。

疫情緩和下,整體商務氣氛轉好,過往集合本地及旅客消費的旺角區,租務個案增加,更錄得疫後最大宗商舖租務。

鄧成波家族勝訴 尖沙咀舊樓准強拍

底價19.26億 合併鄰地重建供13萬呎

舊樓收購進入收成期,三個舊樓強拍重建項目陸續獲批,涉資約24.9億元,預計能帶來18.1萬平方呎樓面,其中已故舖王鄧成波生前收購的尖沙咀加連威老道舊樓,獲法庭批准繼續強拍。

舖王鄧成波家族在2017年就加連威老道65至73號收購至逾8成業權之後,向土地審裁處申請強制拍賣,並在去年6月獲批出強拍令,拍賣程序原定在去年7月舉行,但當時遇上有一名小業主向高等法院反對,並批出暫緩令。

該小業主律師質疑加連威老道73號與75號共用同一條樓梯,若果73號重建後,小業主在75號持有的單位亦無法使用,認為《舊樓強拍條例》是重建整幢物業,而不是物業的一部分。

不過,據法庭判詞指出,香港現有業權制度以地段 (lot) 為單位,而並認為73號跟75號屬於不同公契,彼此獨立,而屋宇署亦會審批方案確保73號拆卸後不會影響75號的運作,才批出拆樓紙,故此最終拒絕小業主的上訴申請。

按照資料顯示,加連威老道65至73號拍賣底價達19.26億元,若果合併地盤重建,將可提供約13萬平方呎樓面。

永義紅磡舊樓今拍賣

另外,英皇國際 (00163) 收購的的西營盤皇后大道西高陞大樓,最新獲土地審裁處批出強拍令,項目底價為2.59億元。高陞大樓位於西營盤皇后大道西78至80號及荷李活道265至267號,比鄰荷李活道公園。據文件顯示,英皇相關人士目前已持有大廈業權約91.89%。項目地盤面積約2,144平方呎,可建樓面涉約1.9萬平方呎。

另外,永義國際 (01218) 持有大部分業權的紅磡漆咸道北472號、474號、476號及478號,將於今日上午10時進行強拍,底價為3億元。項目現為兩幢5至6層高的舊樓,分別於1956及1957年落成,其地盤面積約3,562平方呎。

Delayed project raises fears over completion

 

Debt-laden Goldin Financial (0530) has sold just around 7 percent of 401 flats on offer at Grand Homm in Ho Man Tin, and the developer has delayed delivery of the homes to buyers for more than six months now.

The firm previously missed the delivery date in late November and the project is stoking fears that it may become an unfinished real-estate project, which is rarely seen in the city.

The developer said on Sunday the homes are expected to be completed on July 6, due to the impact of the pandemic and weather.

Meanwhile, property agencies reportedly dropped the sales work on the project six months ago and have not received the commission from the previous deals.

Grand Homm marks Goldin Financial's first residential project in Hong Kong, with six residential buildings.

It offers 401 standard units and 26 special ones, covering an area ranging from 848 square feet to 1,447 sq ft.

Goldin Financial, chaired by tycoon Pan Sutong, incurred a net loss of more than HK$8 billion in 2020, and its Goldin Financial Global Centre in Kowloon Bay was taken over by its creditors and sold for HK$14.3 billion.

In the primary market, New World Development (0017) will launch at least 90 units of the third phase of The Pavilia Farm on top of Tai Wai Station after receiving more than 11,000 registrations of intent from potential buyers for the 182 flats in three days.

The developer expected to launch the first round of sales as soon as this Saturday, involving about 300 units.

In other news, a luxury house at Wing On Towers 12, Jardines Lookout, is up for sale for more than HK$610 million, agent said.

In May, secondary transactions at 10 major estates fell 4.8 percent to 358 from a month ago as home prices continued to rise.

Hong Kong developers take to wining and dining office tenants, step up restaurant and bar openings

Most Hong Kong developers are expanding their F&B offerings to better serve and retain tenants amid a rise in vacancy rates

We see a growing demand for lifestyle spaces among office tenants, Hysan executive says

Hong Kong property developers and landlords are welcoming more restaurants and bars to their office buildings, as they look to offer more entertainment options to their tenants in an otherwise soft office market.

More than five new food and beverage (F&B) outlets are set to open in and around Taikoo Place this year, for instance. These include trendy Australian seafood restaurant Catch, boutique cafe HAVN, Lady M, which is famous for its cakes, and Japanese hand rolled sushi and sake bar TMK.

“Taikoo Place needs to appeal to younger members of the world … we need to make sure that it has all the amenities and restaurants and bars, and I think we have achieved that,” said Don Taylor, the director of office at Swire Properties. The developer owns and operates Taikoo Place and is a major landlord in Quarry Bay.

Most Hong Kong developers are putting more effort into expanding their F&B offerings to better serve and retain tenants amid a rise in vacant spaces in their office buildings. The vacancy rate for grade A offices rose to 7.9 per cent in Central in April, 12.4 per cent in Wan Chai and 7.5 per cent in Causeway Bay, according to property agency.

“Office tenants nowadays are, in general, more demanding, while landlords would like to enhance the image of their building and provide extra amenities to tenants,” agent said.

Swire Properties, which recently launched Two Taikoo Place, a 41-storey building, could go a step further and improve the F&B offering across the whole of Taikoo Place, Taylor said. “We will put more higher-end dining in place to cater to the demand of executives of our corporate tenants, who can entertain their clients here. We are currently looking at a number of different spaces within Taikoo Place and are speaking to a number of different operators,” he added.

Hysan Development, the biggest landlord in Causeway Bay, will feature alfresco dining among other F&B options in a new grade A office tower it hopes to unveil in the district by 2026-27. “We see a growing demand for lifestyle spaces among our office tenants,” said Ricky Lui, Hysan’s chief operating officer.

Last summer, 132-year-old landlord and developer Hongkong Land launched Basehall, a food court with nine stalls run by some of the city’s trendiest F&B operators, including Honbo, Co Thanh and Young Master Brewery, in the basement of Jardine House. The company, which owns about 450,000 square metres of prime office and retail properties in Central, will offer more “innovative and trendy” dining places in the next six to 12 months, it said.

“It has become slightly more apparent recently that we are seeing F&B elements not just in the basements and lobbies, but also on rooftops, floors with balconies … We have had some discussions with various landlords on this,” agent said.

“F&B operators, they are always up for unique locations. So rooftops and balcony floors are always interesting options for them,” the agent added.

50大甲廈首5月78買賣 按年升1.6倍


甲廈買賣增,有代理統計指,首5月指標甲廈錄78宗買賣,重返2019年社會運動前水平。

代理數據顯示,今年首5個月50大甲廈共錄得78宗買賣,相對去年同期的30宗,按年急彈近1.6倍,期內成交面積約32.7萬平方呎,按年亦上升逾1.3倍。至於2019年同期共錄得79宗買賣,意味着今年首5個月的成交量,已經重返2019社會運動前的水平。

上月共錄15宗買賣

不過,若與2018年同期,即中美貿易戰剛爆發時的116宗,以及2017年商廈大牛市時的167宗比較,最新成交量仍然屬偏低的水平。

單計上月,50大甲廈共錄得15宗買賣,包括中環指標甲廈皇后大道中九號連錄2宗買賣,為該廈近32個月首錄成交;另一指標項目金鐘力寶中心上月也錄得2宗成交個案。

代理表示,受到工商舖撤辣及疫情回穩帶動,部分新晉投資者入市購入寫字樓,帶動交投回穩,總計今年首5個月,交投水平亦重返社會運動前的水平,顯示市場正穩步復甦,但與2017至18年貿易戰前的旺市水平,仍然有一段距離。後市上,代理認為銅鑼灣加路連山道地王早前以高價批出,市場亦憧憬中環新海濱地王賣地價或有驚喜,部分業主因而採取觀望態度,不急於大幅減價求售,令到短期商廈交投或會回落。

屯馬綫效應 加快新蒲崗工業轉型

隨着屯馬綫於6月全綫通車,意味由各區往返新蒲崗會更方便,大大提升該區的潛力。事實上,近年新蒲崗工業區加快轉型,區內未來有不少新式工廈供應,料可提供約150萬平方呎樓面。

7項目發展 增150萬呎工商樓面

鑑於新蒲崗鄰近啟德舊機場,上世紀吸引不少輕工業落戶。不過,在起動九龍東效應,及活化工廈2.0的推動下,區內收購重建活動加快,令到該區逐漸轉型成商貿區。現時區內有7個發展項目,合共提供約150萬平方呎樓面,而屯馬綫將於6月全綫通車,故料可進一步提高新蒲崗工商廈的升值潛力。

由長江製衣 (00294) 持有,位於新蒲崗大有街20至24號的項目,早前申請放寬地積比率,由原本的12倍增至14.896倍,並擬建一幢樓高29層 (包括3層地庫) 的新型工廈,作非污染性工廈用途,涉及樓面約38.5萬平方呎,上述申請已獲城規會在有條件下批准。而大有街20號現為香港安全印刷大廈,而22至24號前身是長江製衣廠大廈。業主早於2012年曾建議將項目發展為樓高31層的酒店,提供約1,144個酒店房間,並獲城規會批准申請,惟業主最終於2016年宣布撤回重建方案,及再就項目提交最新議案。

七寶街1號新式工廈 料6月底推售

同時,附近亦有新式工廈即將推出,其中位處七寶街1號,前身為美華工廠大廈,屬於房地產基金麒豐資本的頭炮項目,早前擬重建一幢樓高26層物業,作非污染工業用途。據麒豐資本指出,項目可提供逾200伙,涉資約25億元,計劃於6月底推售。

受惠於起動九龍東計劃,加上附近基建漸見成熟,近年大型發展商亦積極計劃為旗下項目重建。新世界 (00017) 旗下六合街21號的工業地盤正部署進行重建,發展商早前已就項目申請重建成一幢22層高的新式工廈,預計提供約12萬平方呎總樓面。此外,新世界亦已成功在2017年以逾3.5億元,統一鄰近的六合街9號中溪工業大廈的業權,項目目前屬於一幢11層高工廈,料日後可活化為商廈,提供寫字樓、餐飲及零售商舖等用途。值得一提,新世界早年亦將工廈改裝為九龍貝爾特酒店,酒店於2013年落成,屬區內首間酒店,供應695個客房。

鄧成波家族單日連沽4舖 套逾4億

怡和街舖減價逾2成 2.1億平手離場

舖王鄧成波離世後,其家族沽貨速度明顯加快,消息指,該家族剛沽出銅鑼灣、旺角等舖位,合共套現逾4億元。據悉,部分物業略為減價,例如銅鑼灣怡和街舖位,減價逾2成以2.1億元易手,僅平手離場。

永義統一紅磡舊樓業權

市區土地供應有限,發展商積極收購重建。紅磡漆咸道北舊樓昨進行強拍,由申請強拍的永義以底價3億統一業權,樓面呎價約9358元,項目料合併毗鄰地盤發展。

該項目為漆咸道北472號至478號舊樓,永義於無對手下,以底價3億統一業權,項目佔地約3562方呎,以地積比9倍發展,可建樓32058方呎,樓面呎價約9358元。

底價三億購漆咸道北舊樓

上述舊樓於1950年落成,消息指,發展商同時已收購毗鄰470號全數業權,料作合併發展,項目佔地面積將增至約4680方呎,可建樓面則增至4.2萬方呎,料作商住項目發展。

有測量師指,紅磡區內舊樓近年頻獲發展商作收購重建,上述強拍項目配套不俗,發展潛力不俗,並認為上述強拍成交價屬市價水平,

該測量師亦指出,受疫情影響,今年發展商申請強拍的宗數少於去年,暫時錄約5至6宗,惟部分強拍申請陸續進入聆訊階段,故預計今年批出的拍賣令有機會多於去年。

Henderson Land enters the fray for prime site

Henderson Land Development (0012) co-chairman Martin Lee Ka-shing said the developer will submit a tender for Site 3 of the New Central Harbourfront in Central.

Bids for the commercial site close on June 18.

Lee described the plot as "superior land" but did not reveal to whether it would bid on its own or through a joint venture.

He believes rents of grade A offices will remain stable as many tenants like large multinational companies and financial institutions are interested in offices in prime areas.

Commercial buildings in prime locations will not have major problems in finding tenants, he said pointing out that offices of vacating tenants at the International Finance Centre in Central were soon filled up after they left.

Lee was satisfied with property sales so far this year and said the group is pushing ahead with the transformation of agricultural land into residential land. He said he backed the government's move to take private land, under the Lands Resumption Ordinance, for building public housing and infrastructure.

Lee revealed that Henderson Land's Miramar Hotel and Investment (0071) had average occupancy rates of 40 percent this year, with to 60-70 percent over the weekends. Henderson Land raised its stake in Miramar Hotel and Investment to over 50 percent last month, and Lee said the plan to raise its stake in the subsidiary was a "long-term goal."

foodpanda擴充 平25%租時代廣場2層


疫情衝擊商務活動,不過亦有個別行業疫市下生意不跌反升,更可趁商廈租金下跌有所擴充。外賣平台foodpanda,租用銅鑼灣時代廣場兩層寫字樓,達3.8萬平方呎,作為擴充業務及升級。至於經營網購的HKTVmall,據悉亦擴充物流中心樓面。業內人士指,租金下跌加上疫情緩和,個別企業近期重啟擴充,惟僅佔少數。

市場消息指,銅鑼灣時代廣場寫字樓錄得大手租務,涉及2座23及24樓全層,每層面積約1.9萬平方呎,合共約3.8萬平方呎,以每平方呎約45元租出。據悉,該廈高峰期呎租高見60元,如今回調約25%,亦是近期較少錄得大手租務。

涉3.8萬呎樓面 呎租約45

據了解,新租客為外賣平台foodpanda,該品牌最近從多方面宣傳,包括請來知名藝人拍廣告。事實上,疫情期間因晚市禁堂食及市民減少外出,叫外賣的比例大幅增加,令該平台甚受歡迎。

今年首4個月,foodpanda在香港外賣市場市佔率達51%,位居首位。據悉,該公司目前租用上環商廈,如今預租時代廣場兩層作擴充業務,亦可升級至銅鑼灣地標商廈。

另外,支付服務商BBPOS亦有所擴充業務,消息指,集團原租用荃灣如心廣場低層單位約1.6萬平方呎,如今擴充至全層,面積約2.1萬平方呎,呎租料22元。該公司為全球大型支付終端供應商及首批供應行動刷卡機公司。

除了商廈外,亦有企業擴充物流中心樓面。消息指,青衣豐樹物流中心全層單位,面積約14.7萬平方呎,以每平方呎約15元租出。

據了解,新租客為經營網購的HKTVmall,集團早於2016年,租該廈全層樓面,如今擴充業務。

疫情期間市民網購需求上升,該公司生意在疫情下大增,故需要更多樓面,作儲倉等之用。

代理:機構控成本 租金仍向下

對於有個別行業進行擴充,代理分析,疫情下涉及網購、外賣及科技等公司,生意沒受明顯影響,甚至上升,經過一年疫情後,相關機構預計後市轉好,有擴充業務空間。

同時,商廈租金過去一年下跌,機構若生意保持穩定,便趁租平擴充寫字樓。整體市況上,該代理指出近一兩個月市場上漸有機構查詢擴充業務,情況是去年極罕見,惟整體來說不算多,機構仍以控制成本為主,故相信商廈租金仍會向下,空置率未見明顯回落,而九龍區因租金較便宜,亦吸引機構搬遷省租金,跌幅較低,全年料跌1至2%。

中環甲廈呎租111.8元 跌1.1%

商廈空置率偏高,租金持續向下。數據顯示,中環整體甲廈租金按月仍跌約1.1%,過去一年租金跌約14%。

較去年跌約14.1%

據代理每月商廈租金統計顯示,中環整體甲廈呎租報111.8元,按月跌約1.1%,較去年跌約14.1%,而區內超甲廈呎租為131.3元。

中環租金跌幅略為收窄,而上月甲廈租金跌幅,主要來自邊綫地區,如銅鑼灣最新呎租為60.5元,按月跌3.1%,而鰂魚涌租金亦較上月跌約2.3%,兩區跌幅較核心區為高。

近期市場錄得租務不算多,中區租務主要來自搬遷活動,包括中國人壽富蘭克林資產管理租用交易廣場全中高層全層,面積約1.3萬平方呎,呎租約120元,機構原租用同區長江集團中心 3樓,如今作出搬遷。此外,同區亦錄律師樓租用約克大廈 3層,亦屬同區搬遷。

外資預租太古坊二座 港島最大

本年港島區最大宗租務成交於港島東錄得,私人銀行瑞士寶盛,預租明年落成的太古坊二座多層,涉約9.2萬平方呎樓面,平均呎租約65元。機構現租用中環國金一期等樓面,搬遷料可節省大筆租金。

代理指出,疫情下機構「去中環化」大勢持續,以節省租金支出,該行預計港島東有新商廈落成,吸引中環租客遷至,料該區租金水平及空置率相對穩定。

金鐘指標甲廈 力寶中心放租 海富中心兩戶放盤

本地疫情緩和下,市場接連錄得多宗商廈大樓面租賃成交,當中不乏核心區甲廈獲青睞,反映企業對經濟前景重拾信心,對設立辦公室據點態度轉趨樂觀,而中環商業地王截標在,勢必進一步推高核心地段甲廈市場氣氛,誘使不少業主乘時推售單位,而屬金鐘指標甲廈的力寶中心海富中心,分別有連裝修優質單位放盤。

力寶中心連裝修戶 每呎叫租40

代理指,有業主放租金鐘區甲級寫字樓,分別為金鐘道89號力寶中心一座高層07至08室,面積約1,680平方呎,現以每平方呎約40餘元招租,單位望山景,景致舒適開揚,同時附有寫字樓全裝修,並已分間經理房及會議室等,亦將連部份傢俬出租,為準租客節省一大筆裝修費及翻新時間,屬現時市場上最受歡迎的租盤之一。

海富中心高層連約 呎價3.5

至於,另外兩個單位,均位處金鐘夏愨道18號海富中心一座,分別放租及放售,出租單位位處中高層20室,面積約946平方呎,意向呎租約45元;單位已備有寫字樓裝修,租客可即租即用,為物業增加吸引力;而放售的單位屬同層21室,面積約943平方呎,現以意向呎價約3.5萬元放售,上址連租約,現時每平方呎租金收入約48元,租期至2023年,適合投資者購入收租。

參考市場上兩幢甲級寫字樓新近成交,其中力寶中心一座中層10至11室,面積約2,440平方呎,以約14.6萬元租出,平均呎租約60元,而海富中心一座新近租務成交,可參考高層單位,面積約2,041平方呎,月租約10.9萬元,平均呎租達53元。

該代理指,受社會事件及新冠肺炎疫情影響,與經濟環境相聯繫的寫字樓市場已沉寂好一段時間,而經過近兩年調整期,疫苖面世加上通關事宜逐步落實,寫字樓市場漸露曙光,外資及內地企業過去一段時間都難抵港物色寫字樓,而隨着經濟市道有所好轉,本港核心區甲級商廈價格又見回調,料上述租、賣甲廈單位可吸引租客及投資者青睞。

商業活動需時恢復 空置續高企

環球疫情緩和,惟商業活動需時恢復,機構仍以收縮業務為主,需求未見反彈,加上供應漸多,空置率高企料維持一段時間。

第4波疫情近尾聲,市民接種疫苗加快,本地疫情受控,商業活動陸續重啟,包括市民重新外出消費,帶動零售市場。至於寫字樓租務市場,始終關鍵是環球局勢。歐美接種疫苗加快下,疫情大幅改善,陸續放寬防疫措施,商業活動慢慢恢復。

4月甲廈空置9.5% 升0.1百分點

本港甲廈新租務需求,多來自外資跨國機構租樓面,疫情期間環球封關,令甲廈活動大減,商廈連續多季錄得負吸納情況。目前環球疫情改善,惟跨國企業重新擴充海外業務,仍要待各國通關,現時似乎尚有一段距離。

據代理最新數字顯示,4月底整體甲廈空置率為9.5%,按月升0.1個百分點,而中環甲廈空置率為7.5%,按月升0.2個百分點,而尖沙咀及東九龍,仍維持雙位數。從而可見,甲廈租務活動仍疲弱,最近錄得租務,多來自機構搬遷,包括中環同區搬遷,或遷出中環以節省租金,卻極少擴充個案,故整體甲廈吸納情況未有明顯改善。

下半年展望上,目前為止環球仍有不少地區疫情仍頗嚴峻,環球商務活動仍難以短時間回復疫情前,相信新需求難以大幅反彈,令本港甲廈商廈高空置情況仍持續。值得留意,明年將為甲廈高峰期,多達300萬平方呎樓面推出,並分布在核心區中環、非核心區港島東,新興商業區啟德,供應大幅增加,機構更多選擇作搬遷,令租金進一步受壓,而空置率料短期也難回調。

麥格理再退租國金一期樓面 中金公司每呎120元頂租 平舊約33%

在新冠肺炎疫情下,不少企業改變工作模式,減少租用寫字樓樓面,從而節省租金開支。澳洲投資銀行麥格理原租用中環超甲級商廈國際金融中心一期 (下稱國金一期) 4層共8萬方呎樓面,去年初提早退租1.6萬方呎樓面後,新近再退租多1萬方呎樓面,先後撤出共2.6萬方呎樓面,逾一年內縮減32.5%租用面積。最新退租的18樓1萬方呎樓面,已由中資的中金公司頂租,呎租120元,較麥格理承租的租金下跌33.3%。

僅餘5.4萬呎 較首次入駐縮55%

據了解,麥格理自2008年起租用國金一期18樓至23樓共6層,總租用面積約12萬方呎,作為香港區總部。經多年續約及減租樓面後,在2019年續租時只餘下18、20、22及23樓共4層,租用面積共約8萬方呎,呎租約180元,涉及月租約1440萬元,租期至2022年9月底。

不過,其後本港受社會事件及新冠肺炎疫情的連番打擊,經濟環境急轉直下,不少跨國企業收縮規模以節省開支。麥格理去年4月率先提早逾兩年退租20樓3室至15室共13個單位,租用面積共1.6萬方呎,令該層只餘下約4000方呎繼續租用。據悉,該1.6萬方呎提早退租單位,已由共享工作空間承接。

雖然麥格理去年已減租樓面,但縮減規模的步伐持續,最新再進一步減租18樓5室至14室共10個單位,涉及租用面積共1萬方呎,只繼續租用該層一半樓面。連同去年4月退租的20樓在內,麥格理在過去超過一年時間內,共減少租用2.6萬方呎樓面,佔2019年續租總面積約32.5%。現時只餘下5.4萬方呎樓面繼續租用,較2008年首度租用國金一期的樓面,大幅削減55%規模。

市場人士表示,麥格理早在去年底推出18樓的樓面招頂租,至近期因應市況好轉,獲得中資中金公司洽租,終以每呎120元頂租相關樓面,月租約120萬元,呎租較麥格理兩年前續租時的180元低33.3%。資料顯示,中金公司在國金一期早已承租兩層半樓面,但依然在同一大廈內尋求位置作擴充。

私銀寶盛港總部遷太古坊二座

反之,外資以縮減規模、節省支出為主,瑞士私人銀行寶盛集團 (Julius Baer Group Ltd) 早前亦決定,把香港總部由國金一期遷到明年落成的鰂魚涌甲級商廈太古坊二座。該行現時租用國金一期37樓至39樓共3層,租用面積共4.8萬方呎;另在同區交易廣場二座承租兩層,面積共2.5萬方呎,日後將一併整合中環兩個辦公室至非核心區商廈,料可減少租金開支最少逾六成。

工廈物業有價有市,再錄大手成交,九龍灣三湘九龍灣貨運中心高層全層,以3.68億連8個貨車位售出,買家為澳洲嘉民物流集團。

據土地註冊處資料顯示,三湘九龍灣貨運中心高層全層,於上月中以3.68億成交,買家以公司名義TAI YIP INVESTMENTS NO.2 LIMITED登記,公司創辦成員為GOODMAN ASIA LIMITED,註冊董事為李偉豪及BAGGIE HUGH JOHN SIDDELEY。

據業內人士指出,上述成交連8個上落貨車位,全層面積約69700方呎,呎價約5279元;同時,資料顯示,嘉民物流集團於今年3月以1.82億購入該廈低層B室,連4個上落貨車位成交,故該集團於3個月內合共斥資5.5億購入該廈單位。

面積約6.97萬呎

該外資集團近期於本港頻頻購入工廈物業,資料顯示,於今年2月以5.7億向森信紙業購入觀塘海裕工業中心半幢業權。該集團於多區均設有物流中心。於2018年更以27.51億投得屯門小冷水路物流地皮,樓面呎價約3228元。

另一方面,甲廈市場亦錄租賃成交,市場消息指出,金鐘力寶中心一座低層01室,面積約1991方呎,以約79640元租出,呎租約40元,屬市價水平。

「鋪王」鄧成波於上月突離世,該家族陸續沽貨套現,最新售出銅鑼灣怡和街麥當奴大廈地鋪,由耀才證券主席葉茂林以2.1億承接,另外,旗下尖沙嘴漆咸道南鐵路大廈地鋪亦以2.068億售出,買家為佳明集團。鄧成波家族於兩日內連環沽出6項物業,套現約6.85億。

Hong Kong home prices join global surge

Global house prices are rising at their fastest rate since 2006, with home prices in Hong Kong rising 2.1 percent for the year ended March, the latest report by property agency shows.

Its Global House Price Index, which covers average prices across 56 countries and territories, increased 7.3 percent in the year to March.

Hong Kong was placed 46th on the list in terms of 12-months growth among those markets.

In Hong Kong, Wing Tai Properties (0369) will launch 37 units of Oma Oma in Tuen Mun on Sunday, 5-7 percent more expensive than the last batch.

The developer revealed a new price list yesterday. It covers studio flats to three-room units with an average price of HK$14,678 per square foot after discounts. Among them, 31 flats are priced at below HK$10 million.

In other news, Hip Shing Hong named its project at No 5 Victory Avenue in Ho Man Tin as Madera Garden. The developer plans to start sales this month. It will upload the brochure and price list and open a show flat to homebuyers within the month.

David Fong Man Hung, managing director of the developer, estimated housing prices would rise by 5 percent to 7 percent this year. However, he said he did not expect prices to surge as citizens are facing challenges to afford a home.

In the commercial market, more properties of the late property tycoon Tang Shing-bor, also known as Uncle Bor, were sold by the family.

Tang's family sold a shop at 39 Chatham Road South in Tsim Sha Tsui and another at 165 Sai Yee Street in Mong Kok for HK$324 million combined.

This means that the family has sold a total of 10 properties in the past couple of weeks, cashing in more than HK$900 million.

Separately, Chow Sang Sang Jewellery (0116) said the company's sales in recent quarters have recovered, thanks to a low base from a year earlier, and it is maintaining a target of opening 100 stores this year.

The company said it will install Octopus devices in local jewelry stores to prepare for the upcoming digital voucher scheme.

Hong Kong’s rising home prices, luxury flat sales push property deals to a two-year high at US$11.3 billion in May

Turnover rose 2.9 per cent month on month to HK$87.6 billion (US$11.3 billion) last month, the highest after HK$90.32 billion reached in May 2019

Property agent expects first-half turnover to reach an all-time high of HK$395 billion, surpassing the previous record set in the first half of 1997

Bullish investors pushed the value of property transactions in Hong Kong to a 24-month high last month, helped by rising house prices and luxury flat sales.

The value of transactions rose 2.9 per cent month on month to HK$87.6 billion (US$11.3 billion) in May, according to figures from Land Registry on Wednesday. It was the highest since May 2019, when the turnover stood at HK$90.32 billion.

However, overall transactions, including homes, shops, industrial and office units, eased 2 per cent month on month to 8,965 in May, the government data showed.

“The data indicates more demand for expensive properties, as homes worth more than HK$10 million recorded significant growth last month,” property agent said. The trend will continue this month, the agent added.

Amid growing optimism over the strength of Hong Kong’s economic recovery and the pandemic being brought under control in the city, an increasing number of investors are choosing to park their capital in property. Hong Kong ended six consecutive quarters of economic decline caused by the coronavirus pandemic, posting a 7.8 per cent growth in the first quarter, the strongest in 11 years. Unemployment fell to 6.4 per cent in April from 7.2 per cent in February.

The agent pointed to the success of new project launches, most of which were sold out last month. He said close to 300 out of 380 units at South Land project near Wong Chuk Hang MTR station were sold at an average price of over HK$20 million, while the number of transactions of lived-in homes costing more than HK$10 million climbed to 1,064 deals, the highest in two years.

Hong Kong’s lived-in home prices also extended gains for the fourth straight month in April, taking them to their highest level since July 2019, data from Rating and Valuation Department showed last week. They are within about 1.5 per cent of a historic high recorded in May 2019, before the anti-government protests kicked off.

With more potential investors hastening their buying decisions fearing further increase in home prices, the number of new homes sold jumped 47.8 per cent month on month in May to 1,558, while their value rose to HK$26.9 billion, the most since HK$32.6 billion reached in May 2019, property agency said.

Apart from luxury flats, investors were also channelling capital into car parking spaces, taking advantage of the removal of extra stamp duty on non-residential transactions in November.

The agent said sales of car parking bays jumped 18 per cent month on month in May.

the property agency said that the buoyant property market sentiment could push first-half transactions to an all-time high of HK$395 billion and in the process overtake the previous record of HK$388.8 billion set in the first half of 1997.

The Executive Centre bought by KKR and Tiga Investments as pandemic spurs consolidation of Hong Kong’s flexible workspace sector

Deal marks the latest consolidation in an industry that has been restructuring amid the global downturn triggered by Covid-19

TEC has more than 150 centres in 32 cities and 14 markets, including China, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia and the Middle East

Hong Kong-based flexible workspace provider The Executive Centre has been acquired by private-equity firm KKR and Tiga Investments for an undisclosed amount, the company announced on Tuesday.

It marks the latest consolidation in an industry that has been restructuring amid the global downturn triggered by Covid-19.

“We are pleased to welcome KKR and Tiga Investments to The Executive Centre as our new investors,” said Paul Salnikow, founder and chief executive officer of TEC. “It’s a powerful partnership, well matched to drive the continued performance and growth of TEC.”

The acquisition indicates the confidence of investors in the flexible office space segment, according to analysts, even as the likes of US-based WeWork have been giving up space in Hong Kong.

WeWork has reduced its footprint by more than half since the coronavirus pandemic triggered widespread work-from-home arrangements last year.

The consortium of KKR and Singapore-based Tiga acquired its stake from funds advised by HPEF Capital Partners and CVC Capital Partners, which owned 70 and 20 per cent of TEC respectively. HPEF was an investor in TEC since 2005, and CVC since 2014.

TEC declined to discuss the acquisition terms but in 2019, amid the social unrest that brought Hong Kong to a standstill, the company paused its decision to go public and sell shares for US$750 million, which would have allowed HPEF and CVC to dispose of their stake in the company.

“KKR and Tiga are acquiring a strongly profitable business at every level,” said Salnikow, who reiterated that the company is still pursuing a long-term growth target of 20 per cent in terms of expansion. TEC currently has more than 150 centres in 32 cities and 14 markets, including China, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Its annual turnover is in excess of US$237 million.

“The long-term growth rate of 20 per cent is still something that we want to achieve over the next five years, but will we continue to grow 20 per cent this year, next year, and the year after? Unlikely. The right opportunity [will come from being] more thoughtful about expansion this year and taking advantage of market opportunities more aggressively in 2022 and 2023,” said Salnikow.

TEC is adding more centres this year in Tokyo, Hong Kong and India and has a line-up of expansions in Australia.

The acquisition of TEC was “expected”, given that the segment has been consolidating, according to property agent.

“With the economy rebounding, many businesses are taking a cautiously optimistic approach to expanding,” the agent said. “Flexible working space provides are a perfect platform for these companies as they do not need much upfront capital investment to set up.”

The flexible office space, or co-working, segment can provide a solution for companies adapting to a new normal in which employees spend more time working from home.

“We believe flexible office leasing will remain a long-term strategy for occupiers,” another agent said.

The consolidation in the industry in Hong Kong began in 2019, when the city was riven by political instability, and continued last year when the pandemic hit. This served to “eliminate some weak players”, according to another agent.

“In the long term, co-working space is viable, but operators should provide more value-added services to tenants such as organising business activities and seminars,” the agent said.

Hong Kong’s street shops in flux as pandemic upends businesses, creates new opportunities

April saw 186 shop transactions, an 18 per cent increase over March, stretching a rally of three months and marking a 56-month high

The worst has passed, as far as shops are concerned, market observer says

Hong Kong’s street shop landscape has transformed dramatically following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, reflecting the changing fortunes of investors and industries amid the unprecedented dislocation it has caused.

Some investors, including property industry heavyweights, are buying shops at low prices while others are selling them, partly because some businesses are struggling. According to the Land Registry, shop transactions rose for a third month in April, adding 18 per cent over March to 186 , and marking a 56-month high.

“Many of those active before the coronavirus outbreak are [now] selling shops. Very often, those who sell shops are in industries affected [by the pandemic]”, said Edwin Lee, founder and chief executive of Bridgeway Prime Shop Fund Management.

The buying and selling of shops reflects the changing fortunes of industries, with banks, cosmetic chains, bakery chains and investors related to The Center acquisition selling shops since the coronavirus pandemic started, Lee said. For instance, banks were selling shops because of virtual banks – they do not need so many branches now, he said.

Many of those who are buying now are those who had stayed silent in the market for a long time and wanted to “buy low”, Lee said. There are also new investors who are exploring alternative property investments, or shops for their own use.

“The worst time for the shop market has passed,” Lee said, adding that the prospect of travel bubbles, consumption vouchers and the government’s plan to buy shops had led to a feeling of optimism. Transaction volumes will surge by one to 1.5 times this year from about 1,000 deals last year, Lee said. Shop prices in residential districts will appreciate by 20 per cent to 30 per cent, while those in core districts will rise 10 per cent to 15 per cent, he predicted.

E-commerce, particularly during the pandemic, had also triggered a change of fortunes. Every consumption market sees changes, property agent said. “This time, the difference is big,” the agent said. “This does not [diminish] the importance of shops. Shops will be [used] for new industries.”

The agent has spent about HK$168 million (US$21.7 million) on three shops since February. These include a shop in Percival House, across Times Square in Causeway Bay, which cost him HK$66.8 million.

“We think the shop market has bottomed out. So we started to enter the market for investments. It starts with prime [properties]. Shops in core districts are particularly valuable – it was not easy to buy one in the past 10 years,” the agent said. “In the last two years, there has been social unrest and the coronavirus outbreak. So the market was very unusually battered, time after time.”

Founder of an agency group said his charity foundation bought a shop for recurrent income recently. The 1,400 sq ft property at Lee Hing Building in Mong Kok cost about HK$47 million.

“The timing was about right, as rents had fallen quite a lot. [But] the pandemic is about to fade -investors need to take a step early [and] consider the prospects,” the agent said. The agent also attributed the “difficult” business of shops to a wave targeting and scaring away mainland Chinese consumers during the city’s anti-government protests.

But Beijing will, in the long term, encourage people to visit and shop in Hong Kong as “China and the US are struggling” and “Beijing wants to prove that, even under US sanctions, Hong Kong has room for development”, the agent said.

Some investors, however, are looking to shrink their portfolios. The family of “shop king” Tang Shing-bor, who died recently, has set its asking prices for 39 properties worth about HK$4.15 billion that it is putting up for sale, according to a list recently circulated by agents and confirmed by the Stan Group, Tang’s company.

The most valuable property on the list is the 14-storey Woon Yin Building in Wan Chai, which has been priced at HK$390 million. It was listed by property agency in September last year at an indicative price of HK$400 million.

“The group will continue to sell noncore projects in response to market opportunities, as well as actively look for local potential investment projects to optimise its investment portfolio,” Stan Group’s spokeswoman said.

代理料今年甲廈租金跌8%


受疫情等因素重創,甲廈觀望氣氛瀰漫,租金跌勢未止。有外資代理行指,受空置率持續高企影響,料今年整體甲廈租金下跌5%至8%。

該代理昨日發表了最新的市場報告。代理認為,中環核心區甲廈空置率今年4月沒有進一步惡化,惟高空置率對租金構成一定壓力,租金向下趨勢持續,預計今年港島區甲廈全年下跌5至8%。

明年上半年料反彈1%至3%

代理續指,雖然有部分寫字樓仍有較高空置率,惟疫情持續緩和,經濟環境改善,投資者恢復信心和失業率下跌,相信整體港島區甲廈租金將於今年下半年穩定下來,港島區甲級寫字樓租金將有機會在2022年上半年反彈,租金有望回升1至3%。

代理指,去年總零售銷貨額按年跌近25%,受疫情影響,令網購更普及化,相信比例持續上升,因此對商鋪需求或減少而令市場對租金長遠受壓,料整體鋪租今年跌約10%至15%。

代理指,隨着疫情回穩,預期今年一、二手住宅銷售量將達至約6至6.2萬宗,高於去年的5.9萬宗。現今樓價僅較2019年高位低2.2%,在現時購買力仍然強勁下,新盤銷情理想,相信有機會蔓延到二手市場,預期今年住宅樓價表現比預期好,預計一般住宅樓價上升3%,豪宅樓價料上升5%。整體而言,以600萬至1000萬中細價物業及超級豪宅表現較好。

工商舖買賣高位反覆 6月試衝700宗

代理表示,工商舖市道進一步好轉,相信登記量會受盤源多寡影響而偶有波動,但目前升市大方向未改,6月登記量有望試上700宗。根據代理資料所得,2021年4月全港共錄得693宗工商舖物業買賣登記 (數字主要反映2至4星期前市場實際狀況),較3月的618宗上升12%,連升2個月,創下24個月新高,已走出社會事件及疫情陰霾;至於期內買賣合約總值錄得132.23億元,按月勁升99%,主要受惠月內有較多逾億元的大額登記刺激。

按工商舖3個物業類別劃分,工廈按月登記量仍然佔最多,並逐漸逼近400宗水平,創24個月高位。4月全月工廈錄得382宗登記,按月上升9%,佔整體工商舖成交達55%。當中升幅貢獻有不少來自銀碼介乎1,000萬至2,000萬元以內及2,000萬至5,000萬元以內組別的登記,期內分別錄得43宗及20宗,按月各升72%及150%。而在中高價類別登記暢旺下,4月工廈買賣金額大升87%,錄得約53.28億元。

商廈125成交 按月升13%

商廈買賣登記量則穩步向好,但仍是3類物業中,宗數佔比最少者。隨着整體經濟出現復甦,買賣漸趨熱鬧,帶動4月商廈登記進一步上升,4月商廈買賣登記共有125宗,按月升13%;當中尤以1億元或以上的大銀碼表現較亮麗,單月錄得8宗登記,較對上1個月的零成交明顯加快,亦帶動4月整體商廈買賣登記金額按月激增3.84倍,錄得近53.31億元。

至於店舖買賣登記量方面,4月繼續拾級上升,連漲3個月,印證零售消費市道持續回暖。數據顯示,4月店舖錄得186宗登記,按月再升18%,為工商舖中升幅最大的類別。不過,升幅主要集中在細價物業,而5,000萬元以上者則錄得跌幅,故亦拖累月月內店舖買賣登記總額背馳回落,只錄得25.63億元,按月減少4%。

代理指出,目前整體市場氣氛依然旺盛,復甦勢頭持續,料在輕微整固後,預期落入6月的整體工商舖登記量可再次回升,並嘗試突破700宗的又一關口。

疫情穩定 舖位交投明顯加快

近一個月疫情明顯穩定,零售及餐飲氣氛轉好,帶動商舖交投明顯加快,由大碼至中、細碼商舖,均錄得成交。

利嘉閣(工商舖)工商舖資料顯示,2021年4月全港共錄186宗店舖買賣登記﹙數字主要反映2至4星期前的實際市況﹚,較3月的158宗再升18%,連升3個月並創56個月(即逾4年半)以來新高,反映店舖市道進一步轉旺。

按物業價格劃分,在7個價格組別當中,共有3個組別的登記量報升,升幅介乎15%至156%不等。當中以200萬至500萬元以內組別的登記量升幅最可觀,由前月的16宗增至上月的41宗,升幅多達1.56倍。至於2,000萬至5,000萬元以內及500萬至1,000萬元以內的2個價組別亦分別升17%至35宗。

耀才證券葉茂林2.1億購銅鑼灣舖

最近商舖成交焦點,盡在鄧成波家族旗下物業上,舖王波叔早前離世,其家族近日明顯加快沽貨。近日沽出較貴重物業為銅鑼灣怡和街46至54號地下及地庫,地下面積1,230平方呎,地庫面積約6,121平方呎,合共約7,351平方呎,現由電訊店以每月45.5萬元租用,以約2.1億元成交。據悉,鄧成波於2016年以2.038億元購入,早前曾以約2.8億元放售,直至最近再降價,終以約2.1億元易手,減價約25%。持貨5年轉手,僅平手離場,據知,新買家為耀才證券葉茂林。

另外,該家族亦連環沽出旺角大樓面舖位,包括以約8,100萬沽出新填地街142至144號地下至2樓酒樓舖位,面積合共約8,030平方呎,現由酒樓以每月18.7萬元租用。據悉,業主原叫價約8,500萬元,減價約5%沽出。據悉該物業早於1992年以約600萬元購入,持貨29年轉手,獲利約7,500萬元離場。另外,旗下荃灣楊屋道118號立坊地舖連1樓,地舖面積4,492平方呎,而1樓則大約5,088平方呎,合共約9,580平方呎,以約1.2億元沽出。

投資者炒灣仔道舖 月內賺600

市場買賣成交增,更錄得短綫獲利個案。如灣仔道87號地下及閣樓,面積合共約1,100平方呎,以約3,700萬元易手,舖位以交吉交易。原業主為投資者,上月初以約3,100萬元購入,持貨不足1個月,獲利約600萬元。另西營盤第三街56至72號地下,面積約800平方呎,以約2,750萬元成交,原業主持貨5個月,獲利約900萬元。

分析指,疫情近期轉穩定,市民重新外出消費,令商舖買賣氣氛轉好,加上個別投資者如鄧成波家族積極沽貨,吸引投資者重投舖市,令成交量及金額同步上升。預計疫情持續穩定下,整體市況亦向好,若下半年中港通關,舖市投資氣氛料更為熾熱。

Mount Nicholson車位1020萬售 全球最貴

造價可買太古城2房 會德豐:屬市價

香港樓價冠全球,連帶車位造價亦貴絕全球。山頂Mount Nicholson以招標形式發售車位,其中一個車位以1,020萬元售出,問鼎全球最貴車位,銀碼足夠購買一個太古城的2房單位。

九倉 (00004) 及南豐合作發展的山頂Mount Nicholson,早年推售時12樓C及D室以11.65億元售出,平均呎價13.21萬元,登上全亞洲最貴分層樓王寶座,紀錄近月才被打破。據了解,發展商4月份開始以招標形式推售15個車位,招標文件顯示該批車位底價介乎880萬至950萬元,惟項目業主全屬超級富豪,出手相當闊綽,有指1號車位以1,020萬元售出,另一個92號車位則以930萬元售出,兩者均打破全港車位造價新高紀錄,1號車位更問鼎全球最貴車位寶座。

不過,相關車位目前仍未於成交紀錄冊顯示,發展商回應指,Mount Nicholson早前以招標形式推售車位,暫未有詳情公布。會德豐地產主席梁志堅回應傳媒查詢指,Mount Nicholson車位是一般市價,銷售價格已經與住戶商討過才推出。又指已經應承住戶車位價錢,不會額外提高。

賭王四太掃入6個車位

據資料顯示,Mount Nicholson共提供48伙分層單位及19幢洋房,而分配予分層單位的車位則共有76個,平均每戶有1.5個,比例應該足夠。惟業主全屬超級富豪,車位需求殷切,有指持有2套相連單位的賭王四太梁安琪購入6個車位,大鴻輝集團梁紹鴻則購入4個車位。尚嘉執行董事兼行政總裁吳士元回應查詢指,四太有買入Mount Nicholson車位,但不是買最貴那個。

資料顯示,原本全港最貴車位由何文田天鑄去年以660萬元創造,消息指中半山寶珊道1號有車位以690萬易手打破紀錄。但新紀錄旋即被Mount Nicholson造價拋離。

有指Mount Nicholson昨日又有20個車位發售,有造價達1,200萬元,若以每個車位面積135平方呎計,呎價約8.9萬元,貴過不少中半山豪宅。

資深投資者吳賢德認為,從投資角度看,逾千萬元買車位未必有投資價值,但因為物業屬山頂超豪宅,車位對於豪宅業主屬必需品,相信他們買入車位亦不是用作投資收租;加上物業戶戶價值逾數億元,一個車位逾千萬元其實亦合乎比例。

李寧妻2.3億 首置21 BORRETT ROAD

中層2945呎5房間隔 呎價約79049

名人接連入市本港豪宅新盤,根據土地註冊處資料,半山區西部波老道21號新盤21 BORRETT ROAD第1期中層單號室,實用面積2,945平方呎,屬5房間隔,近日以2.328億元,連兩個車位成交,呎價約79,049元。

資料顯示,新買家為陳永妍 (CHEN YONG YAN),與中國退役體操運動員、有「體操王子」之稱、兼中國體育品牌李寧 (02331) 的創辦人及主席,李寧的妻子陳永妍之姓名相同,故不排除為同一人。

據EPRC經濟地產庫資料,陳永妍早於2015年中以695萬元買入灣仔嘉薈軒中層11室,實用面積約358平方呎,呎價約19,413元,惟陳氏於本年5月中以700萬元將上述單位轉售給其丈夫李寧,意味她上月「甩名」後,可以重獲首置身份。

除名自製首置 慳稅逾2500

而是次陳永妍購入21 BORRETT ROAD單位,需付相等於樓價4.25%的印花稅,反映她以首置名義入市,變相慳稅逾2,500萬。

另外,中半山花園台3座中層B室,4月底以1.02億元,並連兩個車位成交。EPRC經濟地產庫顯示,上述單位的實用面積為2,943平方呎,屬3房間隔,呎價約34,659元。

而土地註冊處資料顯示,新買家為關陳燕坤,相信是曾擔任監警會委員、建造業訓練局主席、匯賢智庫成員及香港建造商會副會長等多項職務的關治平的家族成員。

原業主早於1998年底以1850萬元承接「摸貨」,他持貨近23年,現時易手帳面獲利8350萬元,物業升值約4.5倍。

Honk if you're shocked: parking space on Peak sells for $10.2m

A parking space in Mount Nicholson on The Peak has been sold for HK$10.2 million - more than 50 percent higher than the previous record of HK$6.6 million in Ultima at Homantin Hill and enough to buy a two-room unit in upscale Tai Koo Shing.

It is believed to be the most expensive parking spot in the world, agent said. The agent noted that there are parking spaces in Manhattan's SoHo district in New York City that are priced at US$1 million each (HK$7.8 million).

As the prices of luxury flats soar and the rich are willing to pay, it is natural for parking spot prices to grow accordingly, agent said.

Mount Nicholson was codeveloped by Nan Fung Group and Wharf, with Wheelock Properties responsible for sales. The developers have sold several parking spaces recently by tender, with a minimum price of HK$9.3 million, according to a property agent.

The late tycoon Stanley Ho Hung-sun's fourth wife, Angela Leong On-ki - who spent HK$1.3 billion for four flats in Mount Nicholson as gifts for her two daughters - is also among the buyers of parking spaces, said Terry Ng Sze-yuen, chief executive at L'Avenue, the holding company for Leong's properties.

Wheelock chairman Stewart Leung Chi-kin said the prices were at market level after discussion with the residents since the project is facing a shortage of parking spaces. A spokesperson of the developer confirmed that parking spaces in the luxury project were launched via tender earlier.

The brochure showed that each space covers 135 square feet, which is slightly bigger than the smallest unit of T Plus in Tuen Mun which is 128 sq ft.

The per-sq-ft price of the HK$10.2 million parking space comes in at around HK$75,556.

Mount Nicholson is being developed in three phases, offering 67 units in total, including 19 houses and 48 flats. Since 76 parking spaces were put for sale in phase two and phase three, this suggests a parking-space-to-unit ratio of nearly 1.5 times.

In 2017, developers sold two flats in Mount Nicholson for nearly HK$1.17 billion combined, with an average price of HK$132,100 per sq ft, making them the priciest flats in Asia at the time.

The record was broken in February by CK Asset's project at 21 Borrett Road. The selling price was HK$460 million, with an average price of HK$136,000 per sq ft.

Pavilia Farm draws rush to register

New World Development (0017) received about 27,000 registrations of intent from potential buyers for the 331 flats in the first two price lists of the third phase of The Pavilia Farm above Tai Wai Station.

The flats were nearly 80 times oversubscribed, the highest number of registrations since 1997.

The developer previously released 149 flats in the second price list of the third phase at an average price of HK$21,368 per sq ft after discounts, 6.9 percent higher than the first batch.

The developer will offer 331 flats in the first two price lists for sale tomorrow.

The first phase of the project received more than 22,700 registrations of interest in the first round of sale.

Meanwhile, Henderson Land Development (0012) will offer 28 flats at The Upper South in Ap Lei Chau for sale today. They are offered at between HK$4.39 million and HK$7.2 million, or between HK$23,606 per sq ft and HK$27,381 per sq ft after discounts.

In the luxury property market, Chen Yongyan, the wife of former Olympic gymnast Li Ning, bought a 2,945-sq-ft flat at 21 Borrett Road in Mid-Levels for HK$232.8 million, or HK$79,049 per sq ft.

And Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) sold a 2,760-sq-ft house at Shouson Peak for HK$194 million.

商用物業價料見底 冀通關反彈


樓市轉暢旺,豐泰地產投資管理合夥人暨投資長朱惠德認為,本港住宅長期供不應求,故疫情下價格沒回調,下半年仍向好。至於受正面衝擊的商用物業,他謂價格已見底,惟等待通關才有望反彈。

近兩個多月疫情緩和,住宅市場即轉旺,新盤銷售熾熱。朱惠德分析,住宅樓價一直沒回調,基本因素是供應不足,「住宅已提過很多年供不應求,半年前疫情期間,我亦表示睇好住宅市場,因為剛性需求好強,特別低息環境。現時不夠供應,累積需求很大,近期成交如中價物業、豪宅造價均理想,新盤銷情已反映。」

豪宅市場上,他指即使成交量不多,造價屢創新高,亦反映整體市況甚佳,下半年樓價相信仍硬淨,「量化寬鬆下,全世界股市暢旺,兼享低息環境,樓價硬淨。要留意通脹是短暫還是長遠,全球量化寬鬆下短暫出現通脹,長遠要睇經濟動力。下半年樓價是否尚有很大升幅?可能僅平穩發展輕微向升,成交量肯定會多。」

農地轉用途 指政府實在太慢

豐泰透過收舊樓增加土地儲備,發展住宅,關於供應不足,他則一再提到政府應該簡化批則過程,令發展商加快興建以增加供應。「政府在農地轉用途上實在太慢,舊樓重建以前快得多,現在很多限制。」他又以海外物業發展與港比較,「豐泰在日本、韓國及澳洲起樓,批則快得多,在日本興建酒店,涉及百多間房,由買地至入伙僅23個月,香港要4年半時間。當地一個政府部門處理,香港卻由多個部門進行,流程太慢。」

住宅項目上,集團與資本策略合作的山頂道項目現推售中,據悉部分單位亦獲承接。

相比之下,疫情對商用物業衝擊,明顯較住宅高,因商務活動叫停,旅遊業一潭死水,寫字樓、商舖屢現空置,租金向下,朱惠德指,香港是國際金融中心,旅遊城市,疫情可謂「食到應」。香港一直依靠國際機構、歐美或內地產業,封關很難有增長,國際機構不能派員來港視察。他認為,近日工商物業買賣及租務成交,造價回穩,已是轉好迹象,「租售價從高位回調1至2成或以上,相信已見底,通關後反彈可望加快,而通關的基本條件是打疫苗。」

餐飲不可代替 商舖有需求

零售物業上,以地區商場表現較佳,豐泰早年購入將軍澳全新商場項目,目前出租率達9成,包括人氣超市donki,「香港人無得去旅行,留在港消費,支持本土零售及餐飲。受疫情最大衝擊是核心區商舖及酒店,因涉及旅遊業。但民生區商舖租金表現好,生意穩定。」

環球疫情持續一年多,市民為免感染,減少外出上班或消費,衍生了「在家工作」,並增加網購。當中涉及商廈及舖位樓面,需求會否出現結構改變?他則認為,亞洲區住屋細,較難在家工作,效率頗低未必會長久,機構或採個別日子容許員工在家工作,但租用樓面沒減少。

網上購物方面,他指電子商貿無疑是趨勢,香港發展較慢,惟餐飲是不可代替,必定對商舖有需求。

Pavilia Farm sells out as more flats put on market

New World Development (0017) has released 338 flats in the third price list for the third phase of The Pavilia Farm above Tai Wai Station at an average price of HK$22,600 per square foot after discounts, 13 percent higher than the first price list.

The 338 flats measure between 307 sq ft and 1,022 sq ft.

The cheapest flat, measuring 307 sq ft, is offered at HK$6.89 million, or HK$22,440 per sq ft, after a maximum 20 percent discount is applied.

NWD expects to launch the second round of sales on Saturday.

The developer has collected about HK$4.37 billion after selling all the 331 flats in the first two price lists at the third phase on Saturday.

NWD had received about 27,000 registrations of intent from potential buyers for the 331 flats, making them 80 times oversubscribed, and the highest number of registrations since 1997.

Meanwhile, CK Asset (1113) has raked in about HK$640 million after selling three flats at 21 Borrett Road in the Mid-Levels.

In the secondary market, an property agency reported 19 secondary deals at 10 blue-chip housing estates over the past weekend, down by 9.5 percent from a week before.

A 284-sq-ft flat at City One Shatin in Sha Tin changed hands for HK$5.68 million, or HK$20,000 per sq ft.

The seller, who bought the flat for HK$1.05 million in 2001, will gain HK$4.63 million.

New World’s latest property launch sells out as Hong Kong’s homebuyers return in droves amid buoyant sentiments

The developer of The Pavilia Farm Phase III in Tai Wai sold all 331 flats before 8pm, with 27,000 bids received

Unsuccessful buyers today may be able to bid for the next batch of property released at a later date

New World Development has reported another sell-out property launch, as Hong Kong’s real estate investors piled into the city’s biggest weekend sale since November, their confidence boosted by a tapering coronavirus situation in the city.

The developer of The Pavilia Farm Phase III in Tai Wai sold all 331 flats on offer before 8pm for HK$4.37 billion (US$563.4 million) in sales revenue. A record 27,000 registrations of interest were received through

New World’s smartphone application, or 82 bids for every available flat on average. Unsuccessful buyers today may be able to bid for the next batch of property released at a later date.

“The economy is gradually improving, with the gross domestic product rising and unemployment rate falling,” property agent said, adding that the agent expects today’s offerings to “definitely sell out.” “The pandemic is also beginning to be under control. These are beneficial to the overall housing market.”

The brisk transactions at The Pavilia Farm put Hong Kong’s residential property prices on track to set a record and race ahead of the tentative recovery in the city’s economic growth pace. Hong Kong could see more than 2,500 new homes sold and up to 6,000 lived-in homes changing hands this month, Po said. Homes prices could rise 2 per cent this month and break records soon, the agent added.

The Pavilia Farm, a joint project with Hong Kong’s subway operator MTR Corporation, features 3,090 apartments of various sizes. Up to 2,100 units in phases I and II had been sold since October 2020. Phase III, due for completion in June 2023, comprises 892 flats. The units on offer today started at 310 square feet, going up to 1,022 sq ft (95 square metres), priced from HK$6.7 million to HK$24 million.

The average price in today’s sale rose to HK$19,999 per square foot even with up to 20 per cent in discounts, 0.8 per cent higher than Phase II last October and 6 per cent higher than Phase I.

There were 54 bulk purchases, involving buyers who snapped up more than one property each, the biggest deal being one valued at HK$69 million, agents said.

The recent ease in pandemic and anticipation for border reopening are heating market sentiment and adding to buyers’ confidence, another agent said, adding that the robust demand could accommodate a price increase of between 3 and 5 per cent in the upcoming launches.

“The Pavilia Farm [has broken] a 20-year record for subscriptions for the second time,” said New World’s chief executive Adrian Cheng. “The group will develop more patented products to deliver sophistication and convenience to residents, satisfying their need for a higher quality and healthier lifestyle.”

The project is also located with proximity to public transport and amenities such as shopping centres. The lack of new property developments in the neighbourhood, reasonable pricing and robust rental yields are all contributing to The Pavilia Farm’s success, said Po.

Hong Kong parking spot sells for record US$1.3 million, bolstering Mount Nicholson’s claim as world’s most expensive address

A parking bay in the tiny neighbourhood of Mount Nicholson on The Peak fetched over HK$10 million (US$1.3 million)

The previous world record for a parking bay was also in Hong Kong, when it went for HK$7.6 million in October 2019

A car parking bay at the exclusive Mount Nicholson development on The Peak sold for more than HK$10 million (US$1.3 million), smashing a world record set in 2019, according to a source familiar with the sale.

The developers Wharf (Holdings) and Nan Fung Group sold 29 parking spaces in phase two and three of the luxury project through a closed tender to homeowners last month, with one of the spots selling for over HK$10 million, the source said.

With a standard parking space measuring around 134.5 sq ft (12.5 square metres), the transacted price works out to HK$74,350 per square foot. The previous record was HK$7.6 million, set in October 2019, at The Center, a 73-storey office tower in Central.

“It is definitely the most expensive car parking spot in Hong Kong,” property agent said.

Car-parking space is so expensive in Hong Kong that it has turned into a subsector in itself, for speculators to buy and sell parking bays in rapid succession to make a quick profit. At the height of the speculative fervour, 8,968 slots worth HK$16.64 billion were recorded in 2018, the most since records began in 1996, according to the agency.

The asset class is again witnessing increasing transactions as sentiment improves among property investors, who are taking advantage of the extra stamp duty on non-residential transactions that was eliminated in November. Another property agency said on Wednesday that sales of car parking bays jumped 18 per cent month on month in May.

For flats ranging from 4,200 sq ft to 4,600 sq ft each, costing between HK$400 million and HK$600 million each at Mount Nicholson, the agent said that the owners spending around HK$10 million for a parking spot was not a big deal.

“What concerns them most is that they need space to park their cars and not the money. They have bought it for their own use and not as an investment,” the agent  said.

One owner, who did not want to be named amid concerns for his safety, told the South China Morning Post that he paid more than HK$36 million for four parking bays last month, each costing over HK$9 million. He said the developers’ starting price was HK$8.8 million per spot.

He said each flat owner had the right to buy 1.5 parking spots. As he owned three flats, he said he was able to buy four parking spots, adding that one his neighbours bought six as she owned four flats.

All the transactions for the parking spaces were conducted last month, the source said.

Stewart Leung, chairman of Wheelock Properties, the sales agent of Mount Nicholson, said the prices of the parking spaces were in line with the market.

“We consulted the owners before finalising the estimated value for the parking bays,” he said. He declined to disclose the selling prices.

Mount Nicholson sealed its reputation as the priciest address in Hong Kong, with the most expensive unit in Asia in 2017.

In November 2017, a buyer named Lin Zhong-min paid HK$1.16 billion for two units on the same day, according to Land Registry records. That buyer paid HK$560 million for a 4,242 sq ft four-bedroom unit, about HK$132,000 per square foot, on the 12th floor. On a square-footage basis, it is now the second most expensive residence in Asia. The same buyer also paid HK$600 million, or HK$131,000 per square foot, for a 4,579 sq ft unit on the same floor.

In February, a buyer named Yin Xi paid HK$459.4 million, or HK$136,000 per sq ft for a 3,378 sq ft apartment at CK Asset Holdings’ 21 Borrett Road luxury residential project in Mid-Levels, making it Asia’s most expensive apartment on a square foot basis.

Other flat owners at Mount Nicholson include Alice Ho Chiu-yan, daughter of the late Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho Hung-sun, who paid HK$646 million for two adjoining units on the ninth floor. Sabrina Ho Chiu-yeng, her sister, bought two adjoining units on the 10th floor for HK$644.6 million in 2017.

Industry observers said that the supply of parking spaces in exclusive developments such as Mount Nicholson would be limited, as the price of land in Hong Kong’s most exclusive address has surged over the past 10 years because of low supply.

“If there is a demand for parking spaces, owners have to buy it from the developer, and they won’t sell it cheap,” property agent said.

Exodus of Hongkongers triggered by national security law unlikely to dent city’s home prices, say analysts

The city’s famously lofty home prices, which were subdued by the pandemic, are once again on the rise and approaching previous highs

They are unlikely to be tamed by a wave of people leaving in the wake of the controversial security law seen as limiting their freedoms

A wave of people leaving Hong Kong in the wake of 2019’s social unrest and the later introduction of a controversial national security law has proved insufficient to dampen the city’s famously lofty property market.

Home prices, which took a small hit from the coronavirus pandemic, are once again on the rise and approaching previous record highs. The reasons are numerous, and include a lack of supply and the fact not everyone leaving chooses to sell up, according to analysts.

“While a higher level of migration may be unfavourable to residential prices, the negative effect is likely to be minimal as it is insufficient to turn around the severe supply-demand imbalance,” agent said. “In fact, on the contrary, this current wave of migration may have the net effect of triggering a higher transaction volume, supporting mass residential prices.”

The number of applications for certificates required for visas, and withdrawals of Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) savings on the grounds of permanent departure from Hong Kong has risen in recent months. Many Hongkongers are looking to move overseas to escape what they perceive to be the erosion of certain freedoms by an increasingly bold Beijing.

For instance, in the third quarter of 2020, withdrawals from the city’s retirement savings scheme reached 8,100 cases, compared to a quarterly average of 7,600 cases in 2019, according to data from Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority.

But the exodus will probably not translate to a slowdown in the housing market, say analysts.

“Historical precedence shows that a higher level of migration out of Hong Kong, with the assumption that many of them sell their properties, was not necessarily going to drive prices down,” agent said.

Between 1985 and 1997, about 576,000 residents emigrated from Hong Kong, according to BBC Chinese citing Security Bureau data.

During that period, mass residential prices climbed by more than 7.5 times, at an average of 19.6 per cent per year, according to the government’s Rating and Valuation Department, while the economy enjoyed average annual nominal growth of 14.2 per cent. Residential prices appeared to be little affected by the wave of migration, according to property agency.

“Not everyone who leaves has a property,” said Kevin Tsui, associate professor at Clemson University in South Carolina, a Hongkonger who often comments on the city’s affairs. “For those leaving Hong Kong, not everyone sells their homes. Many of them heard about [people] leaving around 1997 selling their properties and not being able to afford one again after that.”

Tsui said some of those emigrating because of Hong Kong’s political situation are likely to wait and see what happens, and may decide to come back one day.

There are also a lot of “new Hongkongers” – mainland Chinese who have recently acquired permanent residency in the city – ready to snap up homes vacated by emigrants. “This leads to a minimal change in overall demand,” Tsui said.

The Chinese or Hong Kong governments may try to offset any possible changes in home prices caused by emigration, with measures such as relaxing the restrictions on home purchases by mainlanders, Tsui added.

Hong Kong’s secondary home prices could rise by 5 to 10 per cent in 2021, driven by the highest loan-to-value ratios in a decade and ample liquidity, said Patrick Wong, senior industry analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.

“Average home prices rose 4.7 per cent year-to-date according to property agency’s data, suggesting that we have many more buyers to bid up the prices despite the increase [in the] number of sellers due to the wave of emigration,” Wong said.

The recent spike of households planning to leave Hong Kong could boost the value of annual secondary home sales to the highest level since 1997, Wong said. The number of such transactions could increase 35 to 45 per cent year-over-year to somewhere between 56,000 to 60,000 units this year.

疫情緩和租金回落 中環商廈租賃趨活躍


今年疫情漸見緩和,盡管現時寫字樓租賃市場仍然疲弱,但反而有利租戶爭取最佳的租賃條件,近期企業考慮搬遷寫字樓的意慾明顯增加,帶動過去數月甲級寫字樓租賃交投較去年同期顯著增加,租賃市況略見改善,各商業區中以中環最受租戶注意。

由於部分於過去數年承租新興商業區的企業陸續遷出中環或縮減在區內的規模,中環近來多了優質及大小不一的寫字樓樓面選擇,租戶較以往易於爭取較優惠的租務條款,遂吸引企業趁現時市況回落在中環承租寫字樓。

內地企業 重啟擴充計劃

現時積極在中環物色樓面的企業多為跨國企業及已在香港開設辦公室的內地企業,除了企業希望在同區搬遷以提升辦公室質素外,內地企業亦重啟擴充計劃,部分企業則為了重整辦公室的運用及設計,始終疫情改變了企業運用辦公室的策略及推出靈活工作安排的措施,有企業計劃增加員工平均佔用的辦公空間,以增加社交距離,其他則希望增加協作、會議及喘息空間,打造理想及健康的辦公室。

去年這批租戶因疫症及經濟前景未明,不願貿然承租辦公室,今年疫症緩和,加上市場預期年底經濟可望改善,決定重投租賃市場。值得注意是,現時的租賃市場主要倚賴本地跨國及內地企業的需求,若疫情持續受控及緩和,如果未來內地與港順利通關後,預期將有從未在香港開設辦公室的內地企業來港承租辦公室,租賃市場表現可望進一步改善。

內地企業一般也最鍾情中環寫字樓,有意租用中環辦公室的其他企業在通關後將面對不少競爭,若寫字樓空置率隨租務交投活躍而回落,租金的議價空間難免會收窄。中環租賃交投增加亦有望帶動其他商業區的租賃活動,對整體商廈市場有支持作用。

超甲廈將落成 中環成焦點

展望未來,2023年中環將有恒地 (00012) 發展的美利道商業項目及長實 (01113)  的長江集團中心二期兩座超甲級寫字樓落成,加上,中環新海濱商業地王亦將於今年內批出,定必吸引區內大業主競投以提升區內物業的價值,其他大型發展商相信亦極感興趣。中環已有逾10年沒有超甲級寫字樓落成,相信新海濱地王發展項目落成後,連同區內多幢新商廈,將鞏固中環作為商業核心的地位,再次成為市場焦點。

英皇商業中心 處中環心臟地段

英皇商業中心位處中環心臟地段,正對港鐵出口及交通要道,非常便利,樓面亦適合中小型企業使用。

英皇商業中心位於中環德輔道中,屬於中環傳統商業核心段,鄰近環球大廈置地廣場,另一邊為中環街市,後方為干諾道中,亦可前往國際金融中心一期及二期,故物業絕對是處心臟地段。

正對港鐵站 交通便利

交通方面,大廈正對港鐵香港站出口,而德輔道中為巴士、電車要道,非常便利。飲食配套上,上班人士既可選擇附近大廈地舖,價格較相宜的茶餐廳、米綫店等,亦可前往置地廣場、國金2期等,有更多高格調餐廳可選擇。

每層2680 合中小企

物業樓高17層,即使大廈樓齡較舊,但業主曾為物業進行翻新,目前地下由銀行租用,而大廈入口位處側面。中環商廈普遍樓面不算大,而該廈每層面積約2,680平方呎,多屬全層用家,正合中小型公司。物業提供兩部升降機,通往各樓層。

間隔上,單位算四正,頗為實用,景觀方面,則主要望向德輔道中一帶樓景。

大廈租戶方面,除了傳統行業包括銀行、律師樓,亦因位處中環,亦有半零售及服務行業包括醫務所、美容中心及健身室等,針對中環高收入及消費客群。

該廈由英皇集團持有,集團於2015年,以13億元購入中環永傑中心全幢。項目樓高17層,作寫字樓用途,地下及1樓由星展銀行承租,2至17樓為共14層寫字樓,總面積約39,027平方呎,以13億元成交價計,呎價約3.3萬元。

英皇指,購入作物業投資之用。以成交價計,原業主為永傑集團,於2005年以3億元購入該廈,持貨10年轉手,大幅獲利約10億元。

九龍甲廈租金穩 下半年續錄擴充

疫情有所緩和,漸有個別機構略為擴充寫字樓。代理預計,九龍區甲廈租金漸見穩定,下半年可望續有擴充個案,租金或有輕微反彈。

據代理的每月商廈統計,4月份甲廈租金整體向上,惟核心區跌幅收窄,如中環整體甲廈租金跌約1.1%,每呎約111.8元;至於上環區及灣仔區,則錄輕微跌幅。過往跌幅較細的港島東,4月份單月跌約2.3%,屬該區近期跌幅較大的月份。九龍區方面,尖沙咀及東九龍跌幅續收窄,跌約0.3%。

代理指中環核心區甲級寫字樓的空置率4月份沒有進一步攀升,維持7.9%,與3月份相若。不過,非核心商業區的空置寫字樓在本月繼續上升,灣仔及銅鑼灣的空置率則上升至12.4%及7.5%。

時代廣場寫字樓 3.8萬呎獲租

銅鑼灣時代廣場寫字樓錄得大手租務,涉及2座23及24樓全層,每層面積約1.9萬平方呎,合共約3.8萬平方呎,以每平方呎約45元租出。據悉,該廈高峰期呎租高見60元,如今回調約25%。新租客為外賣平台foodpanda,該公司目前租用上環商廈,如今預租時代廣場兩層作擴充,亦可升級至銅鑼灣地標商廈。

另外,港島東太古坊一座3層樓面,合共約6萬平方呎,以每平方呎約50元租出。據悉,該3層樓面原由一家廣告公司租用,因業務有新部署決定棄租,並於市場放盤求頂租。新租客為免稅店DFS集團,原租用尖東華懋廣場多層,如今轉租新甲廈太古坊一座,可提升物業質素。

九龍及新界區方面,支付服務商BBPOS亦有所擴充。消息指,集團原租用荃灣如心廣場低層約1.6萬平方呎,如今擴充至全層,面積約2.1萬平方呎,呎租料22元。該公司為全球大型支付終端供應商及首批供應行動刷卡機公司。

九龍灣宏天廣場呎租22 跌1

另九龍灣宏天廣場中層全層,面積約2.8萬平方呎,以每月62萬元租出,呎租約22元,較去年跌約1成。據了解,新租客為政府部門,料作運輸署辦公室之用。

代理指,疫情令很多消費者選擇網上購物,因此擁有在綫平台的企業增長速度最快。一些奢侈時裝品牌的網購平台正在積極尋找樓面更大和建築規格更高的寫字樓,以合理租金整合後勤部門、陳列室和客戶服務中心。

九龍區方面,甲廈租賃氣氛不俗,租戶查詢和預約睇樓數字增加。大部分租賃活動集中東九龍,成交面積主要為3,000至4,000平方呎單位。後市上,該代理行指過去幾個月租金大致穩定,且考慮到失業率趨穩,料九龍區甲廈租金在未來數月將維持不變,到今年第三至第四季將出現溫和的U形復甦,市場將錄得更多的擴充宗數。

總計今年首5個月,工商舖註冊量合共錄2,993宗,已經佔去年全年的78%,註冊金額累積錄得366.1億元,佔去年全年的75%。

若按金額劃分,今年首5個月註冊量最多的為500萬以下的物業,共錄1,423宗,按年升158.7%,並以工廈為主。其次為500萬至1,000萬元的物業,累計734宗,按年升2.2倍。逾1,000萬至2,000萬物業錄得433宗登記,按年升約2.2倍;逾2,000萬至5,000萬亦錄得317宗,按年升1.4倍。另外,今年首5個月共錄得30宗億元買賣,按年增14宗。

代理表示,疫苗接種計劃推行及中港通關有望,市場上的不明朗因素消退,帶動工商舖交投量。工商舖註冊量已連續3個月錄得600宗以上,為近兩年半以來首次,反映市場逐漸轉趨穩定。

該代理又指,受新盤餘貨推售帶動,市場氣氛不俗,加上鄧氏家族近期大量放售物業,將進一步刺激交投並支撑後市,短期內成交量可望平穩發展,預料平均每月的註冊量可以保持在600宗以上水平。

旺角百寶利3樓舖 25萬租跌逾半

FOREVER 21曾租用多層 健身中心進駐

早年國際品牌租用旗艦店,現分拆樓面出租。旺角百寶利商業中心多層舖,原由FOREVER 21租用,品牌遷出交吉一年多,現其中3樓獲健身中心租用,月租料約25萬元,租金跌逾半。

旺角百寶利商業中心多層樓面,曾由國際連鎖時裝品牌FOREVER 21租用,舖位已交吉一段日子。據悉,業主有意把物業地下至3樓分拆出租,以吸引更多租客。消息指,物業3樓全層,面積約6,000平方呎,以每月約25萬元租出,呎租約42元。據悉,項目早年亦曾由健身中心租用,及後轉由其他零售品牌承接。

全組舖位 業主早前100萬招租

該舖早年曾由金利豐朱太持有,2014年黑石基金以7億元承接,其後基金把物業重新招租,獲時裝品牌FOREVER 21承租,為期7年,首兩年月租約196萬元,其後增至264萬元,呎租約137元。不過,該時裝品牌其後經營出現問題,在港分店逐一結業,而2019年9月品牌遷出旺角分店,業主需重新招租,其後曾獲Bauhaus短租作特賣場。

去年爆發疫情,零售市況慘淡,業主降價招租,業內人士指,業主計劃把全組舖位,以每月約100萬招租,較高峰期平6成,惟零售氣氛欠佳,國際品牌仍在收縮,業主改變策略,把舖位多層分拆出租,如今先租出3樓,租金已較高峰跌約一半,而地下入口至2樓,仍在招租中。

早年零售高峰期,國際品牌紛搶核心區多層舖位,組成旗艦店,推高舖租。可是近5年零售市場出現多個變化,國際品牌紛收縮,棄租旗艦店,業主有見市況不復再,寧把舖位重新分拆招租。如同區的家樂坊,早年曾由H&M高價搶租作旗艦店,品牌棄租後,業主分拆招租,如今獲Foot Locker及AEON超市承接。另外,位於中環的興瑋大廈多層,原為Adidas旗艦店,品牌棄租後,地下及1樓獲銀行預租。

鄧成波家族 沽出鰂魚涌停車場

陞域集團:不作回應

據土地註冊處資料顯示,上述一籃子物業由力俊有限公司 (POWERGALLANTLIMITED) 持有,註冊董事為黃靄雲及鄧展英,為鄧成波家族相關人士。本報昨日就上述消息向林子峰作出查詢,惟於截稿前未獲回覆。另外,陞域集團發言人則表示,該集團對上述買賣不作回應。

自從「鋪王」鄧成波於上月突離世後,其家族頻頻沽售旗下物業,合共涉約14項物業,合共套現逾13億。

連沽14項物業套13

其中涉資最高為以2.28億售出屯門藍地一幅倉地,佔地約7.5萬方呎,平均呎價3040元,該地具有改劃及發展潛力,料可興建住宅,買家為遠東發展。

家農簡利珍沽大埔鋪

另外,鄧成波家族早前沽出的長洲冰廠,買家為投資者羅珠雄,成交為長洲冰廠街6號長洲商業中心地下及1樓,地鋪及1樓面積各約7200方呎,合共14400方呎,作價1800萬,平均呎價1250元。

另一方面,由家農菜檔簡利珍持有的大埔富善街30至44號嘉豪大廈地鋪以2200萬售出,原業主2018年以1600萬買入,持貨3年帳面獲利約600萬,期間升值約37.5%,以面積800方呎計,呎價約2.75萬。

德永佳潘浩德3566萬購山頂三車位全球新高

山頂豪盤MOUNT NICHOLSON車位早前以天價售出,令市場嘩然,該批買家身分逐步曝光,成交價更較市場預期為高。德永佳執行董事潘浩德豪擲三千五百六十六萬,購入該項目三個車位,每個售價均為一千一百八十八萬八千元,創全球車位最貴紀錄,造價足以購入中半山豪宅物業。

由九倉及南豐合作發展、會德豐地產負責銷售的山頂MOUNT NICHOLSON,早前以招標形式沽出逾三十個車位,售價動輒千萬元,令市場嘩然,買家身分逐步曝光。據土地註冊處資料顯示,該項目七十三、七十五及七十六號車位,於上月底每個均以一千一百八十八萬八千元售出,合共涉資約三千五百六十六萬四千元,買家均以個人名義潘浩德 (POON HO TAK) 購入,為上市公司德永佳執行董事。

每個1188.8萬創紀錄

資料顯示,潘浩德於二○一六年十月以約七億四千九百萬元,購入該豪盤A及B座中層兩伙。由於該項目是次標售單位,每個分層戶業主可購買一點五個車位,由於潘浩德持有兩伙,故可連環買入三個車位。

會德豐地產主席梁志堅日前指出,該批車位以招標形式推出,不排除有業主為求志在必得,以高價競投,甚至以逾一千一百萬高價售出亦不足為奇;地產代理指出,該豪盤一號車位以約一千零二十萬售出,料實際成交價將更高,勢再創新紀錄。

2016年底7.49億購兩伙

據業內人士指出,該豪宅盤於今年四月起,首批推出十五個車位招標,其後,因大部分業主均選擇購買,發展商隨即再作加推。消息人士再指,項目於二零一七年九月起入伙,近月才推出車位發售,但由於該盤業主均備有座駕,為方便他們泊車,發展商特別以「優惠價」月租六千元,供業主承租,租期由單位入伙起,直至車位最終招標日期完結,假如到認購限期完結後,業主最終放棄購入,其原先承租的車位將無法再租用,並會推出發售,但是次推售,絕大部分的業主均有購買。

「小巴大王」馬亞木持有

該地段位處銅鑼灣一綫地段,近期亦頻錄大手成交。資料顯示,由鄧成波家族持有的怡和街46至54號麥當奴大廈地下A及F地鋪及地庫全層,於本月初以約2.1億易手,買家為耀才證券主席葉茂林,以總樓面約7566方呎計,呎價約27756元。

Two South Horizons homes fetch $23m

The lawmaker for the insurance sector, Chan Kin-por, has sold two connected units at South Horizons for HK$23 million, which is HK$3 million lower than the asking price, while some new projects in Southern District were well-received.

Market sources said Chan sold the 1,279-square-foot flat for HK$24.5 million but he clarified the selling price was HK$23 million.

The two three-bedroom units were originally offered for HK$26 million.

Chan bought the two flats in 2011 for HK$6.87 million and HK$7.01 million.

Henderson Land (0012) recorded the first forfeited case for The Upper South at Ap Lei Chau.

The prospective buyer of a 183-sq-ft flat, worth HK$4.34 million, forfeited the deposit of HK$216,800 after canceling the deal.

The Upper South had sold 54 units in the first round of sales as of yesterday.

The tender sale of Jumbo Court Carpark in Wong Chuk Hang, comprising eight stories of car-parks which provide a total of 509 parking spaces, will be opened until July 15.

Meanwhile, the chairman and chief executive of Miramar Group (0071), Martin Lee Ka-shing, said that the hotel's occupancy rate ranged from about 30 percent to 50 percent in the first half, rebounding by more than 10 percent year-on-year.

Lee said at the annual meeting that he believes the occupancy rate will recover to somewhere near the pre-Covid level as long as more people get vaccinated and the economy fully recovers.

Staff can enjoy paid leave of two days for receiving one vaccination, the group said, adding that it may offer HK$1,000 cash if the vaccination rate among staff increases to 70 percent and HK$2,000 for 85 percent.

As rents decline to 2003 levels in major Hong Kong shopping districts, retailers lock in long-term leases at cheaper rents

Rents in Central, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok have returned to 2003 levels

Some retailers even expect to make a profit in the next three to four years, once the border with China reopens, property agent said

Retail rents in some of Hong Kong’s main shopping districts have fallen to levels last seen in 2003 – and this has prompted some to lock in long-term leases for street shops.

Rents in Central, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok, four of Hong Kong’s major shopping areas, have returned to 2003 levels, when the city’s retail sector largely relied on local spending.

“Retailers think they can survive at current rent levels,” property agent said. Some even think they could make a profit in the next three to four years, once the border with mainland China reopens, the agent added.

Over the past 18 months, the sector has recorded its worst downturn on record. And as the likes of Topshop, Gap and JCrew have either exited or scaled down operations in Hong Kong amid political unrest and the Covid-19 pandemic, others are taking advantage of lower rents to expand or even move into better locations.

These retailers were also optimistic about a potential rise in consumption, agent said. They were betting on spending sentiment being boosted by the rewards worth more than HK$80 million (US$10.3 million) being offered by the city’s business community to drum up interest in vaccinations, as well as the government’s electronic consumption voucher scheme being rolled out as early as August.

Retailers dealing in daily necessities and lifestyle products were committing to street shops because rents were so low, another agent said. “They are expected to have a better sales performance than the luxury sector, whose sales rely highly on tourists,” he said.

Elsewhere, US fashion brand Brandy Melville was taking over a shop vacated by luxury watchmaker Rolex on Russell Street in Causeway Bay. The brand operates a store in IFC Mall in Central, but this will be its first street shop in Hong Kong. It is paying HK$600,000 (US$77,335) a month for the space, 70 per cent less than the HK$2 million that Rolex paid, according to industry experts.

Last month, luxury goods retailer Dickson Concepts (International), which operates the Harvey Nichols department store in Hong Kong, agreed to pay HK$205.3 million for a two-storey shop in Bank Centre Mall, next to Mong Kok MTR Station, for a period of six years, according to its filing with the Hong Kong stock exchange. The lease, which starts from August this year, translates to about HK$3 million per month.

“[The Dickson Concepts deal] is the largest retail leasing transaction so far this year, in our records, in terms of monthly rent,” agent said. “Retail rents will be bottoming out in the second half of this year, with drops in rents narrowing,” the agent added.

Earlier, Aeon Stores (Hong Kong), which operates retail chains under the Aeon brand, including Aeon Supermarket, committed to taking up 25,000 sq ft on the ground and first floors of Gala Place in Mong Kok. The lease, for six years, cost it HK$85.5 million, according to the company’s filing with the Hong Kong exchange.

Both Dickson Concepts and Aeon Stores declined to disclose further details about their deals.

The volume of leasing transactions will increase, but rents are still going to decline, when compared with last year, another agent said. “I believe we will see more transactions in the near term, driven mainly by food and beverage operators, edutainment as well as retailtainment, which is something less common in the past,” the agent said.

中環中心呎價3.15萬售


疫情稍放緩,甲廈市場氣氛改善,資深投資者趁機出貨。「磁帶大王」陳秉志持有的中環中心 39樓單位以約6634萬售出,呎價約31560元,屬市價水平。陳秉志於今年以來,暫沽售9項物業,合共套現近5億。

市場消息指出,由「磁帶大王」陳秉志持有中環中心 39樓再錄成交,為該層07室單位,面積2102方呎,作價約6634萬成交,平均呎價約31560元。

「磁帶大王」陳秉志沽貨

本報昨日就上述消息向陳秉志作出查詢,他回應指,上述單位已售出,惟成交細節需再確實。陳秉志於今年4月以7590萬售出該甲廈同層02室,面積2175方呎,呎價約3.49萬。

事實上,陳秉志近期頻頻沽貨,今年以來,暫沽售9個物業,包括住宅、商鋪、甲廈及工廈,套現約4.96億。資料顯示,陳秉志早前連環沽出兩伙灣仔摩利臣山道鋪,其中,該街道10號鋪位,交吉形式易手,作價2500萬,以面積800方呎計,呎價3.125萬。至於毗鄰的8號地鋪,面積約600方呎,呎價4.47萬。

黃泥涌道鋪52年升550

另一方面,鋪位市場亦錄承接,據土地註冊處資料顯示,跑馬地黃泥涌道59至61號愉華大廈地鋪,於上月底以8380萬售出,買家以公司名義LION STAR ORIENTAL LIMITED登記,註冊董事為莊姓人士,原業主於1969年以15.2萬購入,及後於2016年以遺產繼承人方式承接,以易手價計,物業於52年升值8364.8萬,期間升值約550倍。

陳秉志回贈千萬促銷中環中心 變相再降價13% 火速賣一伙

資深投資者「磁帶大王」陳秉志等自兩年前起拆售中環皇后大道中99號中環中心 39樓全層,去年曾降價促銷,但仍有約四成單位待售,為加快銷售速度,最新向每個單位買家劃一回贈1000萬元「裝修費」,變相平均再減價13.2%,令餘貨「折實」呎價全部低於3萬元。當中售價最低單位「折實」5116.85萬元,呎價25648元,較兩年前首度推售時低37.3%。該批單位變相減價後,即火速沽出一個單位,回贈後「折實」售價5633.98萬元,呎價26803元。

中環中心 39樓全層由陳秉志於2019年4月底分間成12個單位出售,首階段只成功沽出兩伙,遂於去年10月把餘下10個貨尾單位,一律較2019年首推時定價減25%或以上發售,但至今只多賣5伙,仍餘下5個單位待售。

據市場消息指出,為刺激銷情,買家在本月內購入任何一個單位,業主會在完成交易後提供每伙「裝修回贈」1000萬元,即業主向買家共補貼5000萬元。由於是次以現金方式回贈,故不會在土地註冊處的成交價錢上反映。

折實5116.85萬起

根據價單顯示,目前在售的單位建築面積由1995至2769方呎,售價為6116.85萬至8924.1萬元,呎價30661至32737元。若扣除「裝修回贈」後,「折實」售價將減到5116.85萬至7924.1萬元,呎價25648至29069元,即「裝修回贈」佔樓價11.2%至16.3%,平均降價13.2%。

以售價最低的13室為例,建築面積1995方呎,「折實」售價5116.85萬元,較2019年首度推出時定價8155.8萬元,低3038.95萬元或37.3%。而此單位「折實」呎價只有25648元,一旦成交,將創財團入主後該廈拆售呎價新低。市場稱,在推出折扣優惠後,其中7室即成功售出,建築面積2102方呎,售價6633.98萬元,回贈後「折實」5633.98萬元,呎價26803元。

5餘貨市值3.3

該層之前沽出的7個單位,建築面積由1841至3140方呎,成交價介乎6229.34萬至約1.39億元,呎價由28500至48435元,共套現約6.15億元。而餘下5個單位,在「折實」後市值合共約3.3億元。

長實 (01113) 在2017年底以天價402億元售出中環中心 75%權益予全國政協委員盧文端牽頭的財團,造價打破本港寫字樓物業歷來最高單價紀錄。交易包括47層寫字樓、商業樓面及402個車位,涉及總樓面約122.27萬方呎,平均呎價約32877元,因此39樓餘下的5個單位「折實」呎價,已低過財團的入市平均價。

中環中心個別單位拆售後,租金競爭力都比全層單一業主擁有的單位低,已拆售的22樓今年1月有單位以每方呎39元租出,創該廈近11年呎租新低。同層的1室,建築面積2781方呎,原以每方呎45元放租,近期亦減至39.5元,冀盡快租出。

英皇筲箕灣舊樓批強拍仲齊大廈收逾90%業權項目底價1.95億

市區地皮供應有限,財團積極收購舊樓,由英皇收購的筲箕灣仲齊大廈,目前獲批強拍令,現已收逾90%業權,底價為1.95億,較19年市場估值約1.76億,高出約10.8%。

據土地審裁處資料,英皇收購的仲齊大廈,目前獲批強拍令,現已收集逾90%業權,僅餘3個物業未獲收購,分別為A號地鋪、1樓C室,以及天台。據判詞指出,由於維修情況欠佳,而且維修成本亦不符合效益,重建為合理做法。

較19年估價高10.8%

項目底價為1.95億,較19年申請強拍時,市場估值1.76億,高出約10.8%。該項目為商住物業,地盤面積約3000方呎,可建樓面約2.85萬方呎,此外,該舊樓樓高8層,地下為鋪位,樓上則為住宅,並於64年落成,樓齡約57年,同時亦鄰近筲箕灣港鐵站,具有重建價值。

可建約2.85萬呎

隨着市區土地供應減少,發展商亦積極透過舊樓收購增加土地儲備,英皇近年頻以強拍重建增加土地儲備。

除上述仲齊大廈外,同樣由英皇收購的西營盤高陞大樓,早前亦批出強拍令,現已收集91.89%業權,並僅餘3伙未獲收購,分別為1樓A室、C室及3樓B室,涉及3組小業主。據判詞指出,該項目樓齡已高,不少單位狀況甚差,現時強拍申請人已持有逾80%業權,故重建屬合理做法。

尚餘三伙未收購

項目底價為2.59億,較19年申請強拍時,市場估值2.4億高出約8%。該項目為商住物業,地盤面積2144方呎,可建樓面約1.9萬方呎,樓齡約55年,鄰近西營盤港鐵站,具有一定重建價值。

10年升值1.5

鄧成波於上月離世後,該家族於過去一個月內共沽17項目物業,合共套現逾15億,當中較矚目為以2.28億售出屯門藍地地皮,為涉資最大手成交。

連沽17物業套逾15

有代理表示,跑馬地景光街13號地下,建築面積約1000方呎,意向價約4800萬,平均呎價約4.8萬。

該代理指出,物業以連約形式出售,現租客經營越南餐廳,駐紮上址超過10年,最新月租約8萬,租期至2022年底,適合購入作中長綫收租投資。

該代理續說,該鋪位坐落跑馬地中心地段,前方即為巴士站,周邊有多家銀行包圍,而銀行普遍被視為「鐵約」鋪,租務較穩定。

Sino Land (0083) and CLP (0002) sold a 3,695-square-foot penthouse at St George's Mansions in Ho Man Tin for HK$260 million, a year-to-date new high among flats in Kowloon.

The penthouse on the 23rd floor of Tower 2 changed hands for HK$260 million, or HK$70,365 per sq ft, including three car-parking spaces.

The penthouse has a balcony measuring 256 sq ft, and a roof measuring 3,301 sq ft. The developers have raked in about HK$1.2 billion after selling eight flats at the project.

In the primary market, New World Development (0017) will offer 338 flats for sale on Saturday in the third price list for the third phase of The Pavilia Farm above Tai Wai Station.

The 338 flats, which measure between 307 sq ft and 1,022 sq ft, are offered at an average price of HK$22,600 per square foot after discounts, 13 percent higher than the first price list. The cheapest flat, measuring 307 sq ft, is offered at HK$6.89 million, or HK$22,440 per sq ft, after a maximum 20 percent discount is applied.

The developer has collected about HK$4.37 billion after selling all the 331 flats in the first two price lists at the third phase on Saturday. NWD had received about 27,000 registrations of intent from potential buyers for the 331 flats, making them 80 times oversubscribed, and the highest number of registrations since 1997.

Meanwhile, Vanke Property (Hong Kong) expects to release about 50 flats in the first price list of VAU Residence in Ho Man Tin tomorrow and launch sales in mid-June.

陳秉志3.13億沽中環中心

疫情稍放緩,甲廈市場氣氛改善,資深投資者趁機出貨。「磁帶大王」陳秉志持有的中環中心 39樓,該層於推出津貼優惠後,以3.13億連環沽售出四單位,並錄全層售罄,成交呎價介乎3.06萬至3.27萬,屬市價水平。

億京財團斥105億購九龍灣國際展貿中心 有意重建甲級商廈或大型住宅用途

近期樓市氣氛暢旺,市場剛錄得一宗矚目大手成交,本報獲悉,由億京等合組財團向合和購入九龍灣國際展貿中心,作價約一百零五億,平均呎價五千九百多元,成為今年以來最大宗物業買賣,新買家有意重建甲廈或大型住宅。

據知情人士透露,億京為首財團剛落實向合和實業購入九龍灣國際展貿中心,涉資約一百零五億,以現時總樓面一百七十七萬五千方呎計算,平均呎價逾五千九百多元,據了解,億京等就收購該項物業已安排銀團貸款,將由三家銀行組成,而且,新買家合組的財團極具創意,就重建物業作了兩個計畫,除了重建甲級商廈之外,亦有意作重建住宅用途。

平均呎價5932

據知情人士指,新買家鍾情項目佔地十分龐大,接近啟德區,坐擁全海景,是市區罕有大型項目,極具可塑性,除了補價重建甲廈外,亦不排除日後向城規會申請將地皮改劃作住宅用途,並作出補地價,相信重建住宅後將可媲美啟德的大型住宅群,發展潛力高。雖然該項目並不接近港鐵站,惟無礙作住宅的發展潛力。

據悉,今番由億京為首財團投得,財團組合以信和及資本策略呼聲高。事實上,過往億京亦曾與信和及資本策略則有合作的經驗,該組合於六年前以約三十億元投得同區偉業街三十八號地皮,發展甲廈 (現址富臨中心),故很有機會再次合作。本報於上月中率先披露,由億京牽頭財團以逾百億將向合和實業購入九龍灣國際展貿中心

新買家考慮重建住宅方案

有測量師指出,該廈現址佔地二十三萬九千八百方呎,樓高十四層 (另有四層地庫),規劃為其他指定用途「工業展覽館及商業發展」,重建商廈地積比最高十二倍,可重建總樓面二百八十七萬七千六百方呎,較目前多出逾一百一十萬呎,惟重建必須要補地價。

該測量師續說,該廈現址寫字樓呎租約二十元水平,展覽場地雖受捧,經常有藝人在此開演唱會及表演,惟租金收入一般,重建是其中的一個好方案,東九龍甲廈供應甚多,若果能成功改劃住宅,將會是潛力最高。

財團料包括信和及資策

九龍灣國際展貿中心地皮,由合和及長實於一九八七年聯手投得,各佔五成權益,隨後由合和買下長實的權益,成為獨資發展商,並於一九九五年落成。由於項目地皮本來屬工業與展覽用途,落成初期只作陳列室、展覽場地及會議室,及於二○○五年初,合和向政府補地價二億一百八十二萬,將部分樓面轉作零售與寫字樓用途。

觀塘寧晉中心2820萬易手伯恩光學楊建文承接

伯恩光學創辦人楊建文等繼早前購入觀塘福昌大廈全層工廈後,再以2820萬購入同區商廈寧晉中心,於月內共斥資逾9000萬連購兩項工商物業。

據土地註冊處資料顯示,觀塘寧晉中心高層A室,於上月中以2820萬成交,買家以公司名義富泰實業發展有限公司 (FU TAI INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT COMPANY LIMITED) 登記,註冊董事為伯恩光學創辦人楊建文及其妻子林惠英,以面積2657方呎計,呎價約10613元。

平均呎價10613

原業主於2010年以1394.9萬購入,以公司名義理善有限公司 (WORILL LIMITED持有),註冊董事分別為鍾、江及梁姓人士,持貨11年帳面獲利1425.1萬,期間升值約1.02倍。

據代理指出,上述單位位處高層,景觀開揚,屬優質單位,成交價屬市價水平,更指出楊建文於區內擁有多項工商物業,亦手持多個寧晉中心單位。資料顯示,楊建文及其妻分別於今年以來先後以約2252萬及3077萬購入該商廈兩伙高層單位,呎價約1.12萬。另外,楊氏伉儷早前亦以6200萬向鄧成波家族購入同區福昌大廈低層全層工廈,以面積10640方呎計,呎價約5827元。

連環購觀塘工廈

楊建文頻頻購入觀塘工廈,他近年不斷購入區內開源道77號業發工業大廈單位,目前收購完成,並向城規會申請放寬兩成地積比率及高限,以重建成1幢樓高39層新式工廈,涉及樓面約28.8萬方呎。此外,年前,他亦就區內巧明街119至121號年運工業大廈申請強拍,市場估值約7億。

土地註冊處資料顯示,油麻地現時點2樓雙號鋪,於上月初以282萬售出,原業主於2015年以298萬購入,持貨6年帳面蝕讓16萬,期間貶值約5%,以面積147方呎計,呎價約19184元。

天水圍天瑞路88號俊宏軒俊宏廣場地鋪,面積約1593方呎,以5900萬售出,呎價約3.7萬,該鋪由食肆以20萬承租,料回報約4厘,原業主2013年以4400萬買入。

深水埗基隆街381至383號地鋪,面積約900方呎,以3350萬售出,呎價約3.7萬,該鋪由食肆以6.8萬租用,料回報約2.44厘,原業主1984年12月以37萬買入,持貨37年帳面獲利約3313萬,期間升值近90倍。

卓匯中心全層放售 意向呎價1.29萬

長沙灣、荔枝角區屬本港第三核心商業區,近年吸引不少大型集團、企業於區內設總部,而且大部份自用為主,盤源緊張,同時不乏發展商於區內大興土木,開拓商貿市場,令區內知名度大為提升,優質單位更屬一盤難求。而現正放售的長沙灣卓匯中心高層全層單位,以樓齡新、交通便為賣點,加上屬市場罕有全層放盤,意向叫價約7,727.1萬元。

樓層高 開揚景 三面單邊

代理指,有業主放售長沙灣青山道483A號卓匯中心 33樓全層,單位面積約5,990平方呎,意向呎價約1.29萬元,叫價約7,727.1萬元,單位將以交吉形式出售,買家可作自用或投資之用。上址質素上乘,屬三面單邊,樓底高逾4.1米,更特顯內籠間隔通透的優點,單位同時可遠眺維港海景及開揚山景,視野開揚,另外單位可負重約5kPa,以應不同行業需要。

同步放租 每呎叫28

從地理位置而言,卓匯中心距離港鐵荔枝角站出口步程僅約兩分鐘,而大廈於2010年落成,外牆為玻璃幕牆式設計,同時由實力品牌新鴻基發展,管理完善,另設有多層停車場,備有私家車及貨車位,全面配合不同用家所需,另外,上址亦同時放租,意向呎租28元。

據EPRC經濟地產庫資料顯示,卓匯中心近年鮮有買賣成交,足見業主以自用為主,即使租務成交亦不頻繁,可見其在市場的受歡迎程度,而參考市場新近租務成交,如低層單位,面積約5,961平方呎,月租約16.7萬元,平均呎租約28元。而受區內新型商廈成交帶動下,今年以來同區商廈成交達70宗,惟大部份屬於荔枝角道888號,而區內目前商廈成交呎價介乎5,600餘元至1.5萬元不等,畢竟區內新、舊商廈交替,呎價差異較為明顯。

代理稱,長沙灣、荔枝角由工業區轉型,現時商貿氣氛成熟,加上位處九龍西,前往港、九、新界各區方便快捷,為不少用家及投資者關注的地區,至於放售的物業,本身配套設施齊備,而放售單位更屬高層全層,坐擁山、海開揚景致,屬市場上優質盤源,料可吸引用家及投資者承接。

桂洪集團9800萬 沽灣仔舊樓全幢

有「釘王」之稱的桂洪集團最近以9,800萬元沽出灣仔聖佛蘭士街12號舊樓全幢,46年前購入價19萬元,持貨至今升值近515倍。

聖佛蘭士街屬於灣仔、近金鐘的一段短街,以數層高的唐樓為主,由於鄰近太古打造的太古廣場3期及星街住宅區,吸引不少咖啡店、酒吧、餐廳等聚集,演變成文藝小區。

現址為3層高舊樓的聖佛蘭士街12號,據土地註冊處資料顯示,在上月中以9,800萬元易手,原業主為KWAI HUNG REALTY COMPANY LIMITED,即是由已故「釘王」陳桂洪創立的桂洪集團。

持貨46 帳面大賺9781

桂洪集團在1975年以僅19萬元購入該舊樓,持貨46年,帳面大賺9,781萬元,升值近515倍,相當驚人。該舊樓佔地僅900平方呎,屬「住宅 (甲類)」規劃用途,以地積比率8倍計算,可建樓面約7,200平方呎,每呎樓面地價約1.36萬元。

桂洪集團由陳桂洪創立,據指因為在中環持有唐樓單位獲發展商高價收購賺得第一桶金,便開始在舊樓「落釘」。據稱曾在北角水星街以幾百萬元落釘,最終大賺逾億元,故此被外界稱為「釘王」。其後創辦桂洪集團成為中小型發展商,近期則計劃推出紅磡新盤曼翹 (MANGROVE)。

至於新買家則為EVER GENIUS LIMITED,註冊董事包括鄭栢洋等,不排除今次是財團購入作重建之用。

會德豐地產主席梁志堅日前指出,該批車位以招標形式推出,不排除有業主為求志在必得,以高價競投,甚至以逾1100萬高價售出亦不足為奇。

Presales approved for Kai Tak's One Victoria

China Overseas Land and Investment (0688) has received presale consent for One Victoria in Kai Tak and expects it to be the first residential project to go on sale on the former Kai Tak airport runway.

The developer expects to release the sales brochure for the 1,059-flat project next week.

The project sits in Kai Tak Area 4B Site 2, which has a site area of 97,392 sq ft and a maximum gross floor area of 594,082 sq ft. China Overseas won the tender for the residential plot for HK$8.03 billion, or HK$13,523 per buildable sq ft in December 2018.

Two years later in December 2020, the state-run mainland developer also won the tender for another residential plot, Kai Tak Area 4E Site 1, for HK$4.27 billion.

Meanwhile, stamp duty collected from property transactions surged by 62.1 percent month-on-month to about HK$1.41 billion last month, hitting a half-year high, data from the Inland Revenue Department showed.

The number of property transactions subject to stamp duty increased by 82.03 percent from a month before to 628, reaching a five-month high.

Buyers' stamp duty collected rose by 28.22 percent month-on-month to HK$239 million, and the number of cases involved rose 83.87 percent to 114 last month.

The amount of double stamp duty applied to residential property transactions went up by 74.91 percent month-on-month to HK$1.14 billion.

In the luxury property market, former singer Cally Kwong Mei-wan sold a 693-sq-ft flat at Dragons Range in Sha Tin for HK$9.78 million, or HK$14,113 per sq ft. Kwong, who bought the flat for HK$8.7 million in 2014, will gain HK$1.08 million.

Pamela Chung, managing director commercial of Hong Kong at Tricor, bought a 771-sq-ft flat at South Horizons in Ap Lei Chau for HK$14.46 million, or HK$18,755 per sq ft.

Goldman joins ranks of property agencies and Morgan Stanley in forecasting rise in Hong Kong home prices this year

City’s residential property prices have already risen 4 per cent year-to-date and Goldman says it expects a 5 per cent rise for this year

Opening of border between Hong Kong and mainland China to benefit sales of luxury flats, Central office take-up and retail premises’ rents

US investment bank Goldman Sachs has joined a chorus of property market observers forecasting an increase in Hong Kong home prices this year.

“Given high property prices, very low interest rates but an improving economy, we expect gradual property price increases in line with household income growth for the residential market,” the bank said in a report led by analyst Gurpreet Singh Sahi. “We believe [an] easing of Covid-19-related border restrictions between Hong Kong and mainland China would benefit the sale of luxury residential flats, Central office take-up and retail premises’ rent.”

Optimism is growing for home prices to climb and break records as concerns about recession, rising unemployment and the coronavirus pandemic have largely subsided recently. Some industry reports, such as retail sales and brisk sales at new launches, are pointing to early signs of recovery in the city’s economy.

The city’s residential property prices have already risen 4 per cent year-to-date, and Goldman said in its June 4 report that it expected a 5 per cent rise for this year. Prices could rise by another 5 per cent in 2022, as the border opens up, before easing to a 3 per cent gain in 2023.

As far as retail and industrial property was concerned, the bank expected a recovery of 5 per cent this year after a “painful” 2019 and 2020. “We believe prices have corrected meaningfully and that retail sales are rising in Hong Kong and mainland China. Year-to-date prices have recovered post their steep correction over the last two years,” Goldman said.

Office prices would, however, decline 5 per cent this year, be flat next year and record a modest recovery of 2 per cent in 2023. “We believe this market could continue to be pressured by the work-from-home dynamic, but the negative force [will] be somewhat offset by the Hong Kong-mainland China border opening,” Goldman said.

Hong Kong property developers were seeing their best relative performance since 2012, driven by a notable pick-up in residential market transactions, prices and low-interest rates, the US bank said.

One of the major Hong Kong property agency, was the most bullish and expected a 15 per cent surge in home prices in 2021. Home prices were likely to see a breakthrough in the third quarter and this will be followed by an obvious rising trend, its founder said on Tuesday. Prices were only 2 per cent to 3 per cent below the record in 2019, he added.

The agency’s market index, which tracks home prices in 100 housing estates, stood at 185.16 as of last month, just 2.8 per cent lower than the peak of 190.48 in June 2019. Agent said their forecast had not even taken into account the reopening of the border.

“With short supply and an improved economy, people have regained their confidence in [the] property market, particularly luxury homes,” the agent added.

For instance, a 3,695 sq ft flat at Sino Group’s St George’s Mansions, a luxury property in Ho Man Tin, sold for HK$260 million (US$33.51 million) on Tuesday. The price was the highest for flats in Kowloon this year, according to the developer.

US bank Morgan Stanley and real estate agencies have also forecast home price rises of 3 per cent to 5 per cent. Morgan Stanley estimated in a report in April that Hong Kong home prices will rise 3 per cent in 2021 and 5 per cent next year, driven by a combination of low supply, decent demand, low interest rates and limited scope for tighter regulation.

An property agency said on Tuesday that home prices were expected to rise by 5 per cent in the second half of this year and return to their June 2019 peak in the third quarter.

The agency said that the economic recovery in Hong Kong had driven a residential transaction upsurge by 20 per cent quarter on quarter, which had reached a nine-year high and a peak since 2012. New home supply over the next two years remained low at an average of about 19,100 units per year, it added.

億京等鯨吞九龍灣國際展貿中心 斥二百億建地標甲廈 余卓兒動亂期間「覓盤」 商談19個月終得手


疫市下錄矚目大手成交,九龍灣國際展貿中心由億京牽頭財團體以一百零五億元鯨吞,該集團主席余卓兒早於十九個月前,當政治事件所引發的動亂演得最激烈時「覓盤」,並鎖定該項目,日前終於落實交易,計畫重建地標甲廈,總投資額約二百億。

本報昨日獨家披露,九龍灣國際展貿中心全幢以一百零五億易手,億京集團主席余卓兒昨日向本報證實,日前就該項目簽署正式買賣合約,作價一百零五億元,以買公司形式承接物業,集團牽頭佔有七成權益。

億京佔七成 夥伴包括資策

他續說,項目佔地逾二十三萬方呎,可塑性高,以現址總樓面逾一百七十七萬方呎計算,呎價僅五千九百多元,令他感到滿意!儘管項目可透過補地價,將地積比由目前的七倍提高至十二倍,重建總樓面可達二百九十萬方呎,惟他們打算維持原有地積比,重建後總樓面將與現址一樣!他解釋說,有兩個原因,建築物密度較低,環境舒適,而且不用補地價,省時兼具效率。

他表示,東九龍甲廈供應多,目前商廈市況一般,他與合作夥伴有共識作「兩手準備」,假若後市欠佳、賣樓拆售套現不容易,將作為長綫收租。根據初步計畫,整個發展項目總投資額約二百億,重建為綜合式商場及寫字樓,打造成為區內地標甲廈,其中一幢寫字樓將規限作全幢形式出售,商場則由發展商保留長綫收租。余卓兒又說,他亦曾研究重建住宅,發現並非理想的選擇,改規劃及補地價需時,而且附近有多條天橋帶來噪音,環境不合適。

發展共識作「兩手準備」

余氏續指,港島核心區難覓商廈地皮,即使九龍尖沙嘴亦缺乏新供應,惟有向觀塘及九龍灣埋手。「惟觀塘區併樓難度非常高,即使要找一幅面積三萬方呎的地皮,也不容易!在發展商眼中,地皮夠大才有氣勢,至少五萬呎,才能剪裁打造地標項目!」

事實上,余卓兒早於二○一九年十月,當政治事件所引發的動亂演得最激烈時,吼中該幅佔地逾二十三萬方呎的九龍灣國際展貿中心全幢,頻向合和實業洽購,最初出價不足一百億,直至日前落實以一百零五億成交,足足歷時十九個月,他笑言:「此時冇人吼,皆因項目規模龐大,而且,大家都將注意力投放在住宅市場。」際此期間,他研究項目發展潛力,並尋找夥伴參與,最終由億京牽頭,拍檔包括有資本策略,至於早前市場一度盛傳有份參與的信和,最終並沒有參與。

最初出價不足一百億

余卓兒證實億京佔七成權益,惟他表示不方便透露拍檔詳情及所持份額。本報昨日亦聯絡資本策略,主席鍾楚義回應:「集團佔很少份數,詳情日後透露。」

九龍灣國際展貿中心地皮由合和及長實於一九八七年聯手投得,各佔五成權益,隨後合和買下長實權益,成為獨資發展商,並於一九九五年落成。由於項目地皮本來屬工業與展覽用途,落成初期只作陳列室、展覽場地及會議室,及於二零零五年初,合和向政府補地價二億一百八十二萬,將部分樓面轉作零售與寫字樓用途。

上月收到14份標書的橡樹街項目,佔地約6663方呎,可建樓面面積約6萬方呎,獲長實 (01113)、其士國際 (00025)、遠東發展 (00035) 和信置 (00083) 等入標,最終由建灝地產旗下達創集團有限公司以約6.18億元投得,屬市場估值約5.4億至9億元的範圍之內,每方呎樓面地價 (下稱樓面呎價) 約10308元。

建灝地產首席行政總裁羅建一對中標感到高興,指出該集團首次投得市建局項目,認為橡樹街項目交通便利和配套完善,初步計劃興建中小型優質商住盤。他形容中標價合理,展示該集團對香港商住項目的發展潛力充滿信心,並強調本港住屋剛性需求非常龐大,特別是對中小型住宅項目更是殷切。

資料顯示,建灝地產對上一次於官方市場購入土地,是2019年8月以約2.44億元投得賣地表屯門景秀里與景峰徑交界住宅地,並已於今年4月提出預售樓花申請,提供112伙,預計2023年7月入伙。

庇利街可建72萬呎 估值107

市建局近年啟動紅磡和土瓜灣一帶多個重建項目,並以小區形式作總體規劃。是次登場的庇利街項目早於2016年3月啟動重建,屬於首個成熟可推出市場的地盤。該項目佔地約7.97萬方呎,毗鄰私人住宅項目環海.東岸,與即將啟用的港鐵 (00066) 屯馬線土瓜灣站僅相距約5分鐘步程,可建樓面面積約71.75萬方呎。市建局2016年已預計該地盤的發展期長約10年時間,預計興建約1150伙,並設有約11.95萬方呎的商業及零售樓面面積。

近年市建局推出招標的重建項目,以樓面面積不足20萬方呎的中小型地盤為主,是次庇利街的可建樓面面積達71.75萬方呎,已是2014年觀塘市中心第二及第三發展區 (現已發展為凱滙) 提供逾100萬方呎樓面面積以來,近7年登場的市建局重建項目中規模最大的一個。

市建局指出,中標庇利街項目的發展商,須按發展協議中列明有關九龍城土瓜灣小區發展項目總體設計上的要求,與毗鄰的重建項目產生協同效應,以達致整個小區的重整及規劃更完整和一體化,促進該小區的連接性和步行環境,並以更豐富的「地方營造」及智慧元素,提升該區的宜居性。發展商也要按發展協議中列明的標準與品質、可持續發展和智能系統的要求,興建新發展項目。

港鐵屯馬線二期將於本月27日通車,屆時土瓜灣站正式啟用。泓亮諮詢及評估董事總經理張翹楚指出,市建局趁此時機推出庇利街項目,正好受通車消息帶動,加上項目規模龐大,勢吸引大型發展商爭奪,估計日後建成出售呎價2.2萬至2.5萬元也不成問題。市場人士估計,該地皮的樓面呎價約1.3萬至1.5萬元,估值93.3億至107.6億元。

建灝6.2億 奪市建局大角咀項目

樓面呎價10308 擬建中小型優質商住宅

市建局昨日公布,就旗下大角咀橡樹街/埃華街項目,向建灝地產集團批出發展合約,涉6.181億元,每呎樓面地價約10,308元,稍微低於早前市場估值下限約6%。

該項目位處橡樹街89至95號 (單數) 及埃華街1至5號,地盤面積6,663平方呎,可建樓面約59,966平方呎,當中包括約1萬平方呎的商業樓面,及約5萬平方呎的住宅樓面。以中標價計算,每呎樓面地價約10,308元。

預計總投資額約9.48

建灝地產首席行政總裁羅建一表示,集團很高興是次能投得該合作發展項目,價錢屬合理水平,展示集團對香港商住項目發展潛力充滿信心。他再稱,初步計劃將項目發展為中小型優質商住宅,建構一個可提升社區生活環境的可持續發展項目。

若以每平方呎建築成本約5,000元計算,連地價及10%發水樓面,預計項目的總投資額約9.48億元。而若加上利潤及8成實用率推算後,估計日後項目推售實用呎價約21,558元。不過,參考目前區內新盤利‧晴灣23 (平均實用呎價2萬)、半新盤奧朗‧御峰 (平均呎價約1.77萬),略高於現時同區一、二手呎價水平。

土瓜灣庇利街項目 邀意向

消息透露,發展商需以一筆過前期費用決勝負,以價高者可投得地皮。市建局亦規定,賣樓收益達到12.5億元後,便須與當局分紅,首3,000萬元分紅比例為20%,及後每增加3,000萬元,分紅比例將遞增10%,最高為50%。綜合市場資訊,地皮估值約6.6億至9億元,每呎樓面地價介乎1.1萬至1.5萬元。

另外,市建局昨日亦就土瓜灣庇利街/榮光街項目,邀請發展商提交意向書,截止日期為本月25日 (周五)。成功投得本項目的發展商需要按發展協議中列明有關九龍城土瓜灣小區發展項目的總體設計要求,以促進小區的連接及步行環境。項目地盤面積約79,718平方呎,可建樓面約71.7萬平方呎,大約可提供1,300伙。

IWG集團:靈活辦公室 疫後需求更大

疫情下機構控制成本,對寫字樓租務需求有轉變。經營共享辦公室的IWG集團表示,疫後機構對靈活辦公室需求更大,故該集團有擴充空間。

環球疫情持續1年多,很多大型機構因應市況,縮減辦公室樓面以節省成本,而早年擴充甚積極的共享空間品牌,更連環棄租寫字樓。不過,IWG集團卻甚為積極,過去半年連環接手多個WeWork棄租的辦公室,包括銅鑼灣希慎廣場3萬平方呎,涉及兩層,連同九龍東海濱匯1座及2座5樓全層共5萬平方呎,以及尖沙咀港威大廈,集團短時間內接手3幢甲廈樓面,作為旗下品牌Signature之用。

香港共17據點 風格多元化

IWG香港區經理Paul MacAndrew指出,集團自1999年在港發展,旗下擁多個不同品牌包括REGUS、SPACES及Signature,合共17個據點,各品牌走不同風格,「REGUS屬商務中心,較為傳統企業類型,SPACES則時尚一點,Signature則為兩者之間,可讓租客選擇。」

集團租用希慎廣場樓面,會員入場費每月約2,380元起,可享辦公桌 (Hot Desk),另外亦有獨立房間計劃等,而所有會員均可享辨公室內的設施包括茶水間、會議室等。據悉,目前出租率已逾9成,「之前有租客遷出,好快便有新租客進駐。」

2016至2018年是共享空間行業在港的擴充期,多個品牌租樓面設據點,及後個別品牌傳出經營困難消息,尋找頂手甚至棄租。Paul認為,現時行業進入整期,共享辦公室吸引力仍然強勁,「最大優點就是靈活,包括面積、租約期長短,而新租客可節省一大筆裝修費,兼有不同行業人士在共享空間內互相交流。」

企業提供多個方案 讓員工選擇

疫情令不少大型機構對成本更加謹慎,個別更需要減樓面,以節省開支。Paul指出,疫情出現新常態,更有利共享空間行業發展,「無論是初創公司或跨國企業,都積極尋求不同的營運方法及改革工作空間。實際上這個趨勢已持續數年,疫情只是扮演當中催化劑的角色。」他分析,機構採靈活工作安排,令行業更有擴充空間,「疫情下企業採新策略,提出靈活工作地點的措施,員工減少了在總部工作的時間。疫情後相信在家工作仍會繼續,共享空間好處,就是可給予機構多一個選擇,讓員工靈活在不同地點上班。」

共享空間興起,歐美、亞洲等均有新成立品牌,面對市場競爭,Paul認為IWG仍擁很大優勢,「一是經驗,我們擁有32年歷史,最重要是規模大,在全球多個國家合共3,000多個據點,規模大予人信心。」香港方面,他指仍有一定擴充空間,「下年仍會繼續擴充,的確租金比之前便宜,而我們的模式是與商廈業主互相合作。香港是集團的重點市場之一,亞洲區上,中國、新加坡均是重點。」

黃竹坑甲廈呎價破頂 呎租升2%

近期港鐵黃竹坑站上蓋住宅項目晉環推售,市場反應理想,氣氛亦蔓延至同區寫字樓市場。有代理發表的報告指出,近期黃竹坑甲廈連錄多宗破頂成交個案,帶動區內最新平均呎價升至1.95萬元的新高,呎租按月亦升近2%。

代理指出,自活化工廈1.0政策推出,以及港鐵南港島綫通車後,黃竹坑逐漸轉發展成為新商圈,適逢近期該區有港鐵上蓋住宅項目推售,令該區重新成為焦點,而相對之下,寫字樓價格較為低水,因而吸引部分資金流入,例如區內指標甲廈One Island South,近期亦連錄2宗高價買賣。

代理指,近年黃竹坑逐漸轉型成新商業區,但受制於配套不足,尤其缺少零售樓面,限制該區過往租售價升幅,但隨着黃竹坑站項目陸續完工,包括預計2023年落成、樓面約50萬平方呎的黃竹坑站商場,以及港鐵南港島綫 (西段) 可望動工,將吸引更多人願意到黃竹坑落戶,為該區帶來根本性轉變。

One Island South呎售2.46

該報告指出,近月黃竹坑連錄多宗破頂成交,最為矚目的要數One Island South一個中層面向城市景的單位,以每呎約2.46萬元沽出,創下黃竹坑商廈新高紀錄。租務方面,4月份該大廈一個低層城市景單位,也以每呎約38元租出,同樣創該廈新高。此外,同區的乙級商廈W50,呎租也重上30元水平。

受到多項高價成交刺激,5月份黃竹坑寫字樓租售價顯著上升,當中甲廈平均呎價按月急升15%,至每呎19,491元的新高紀錄,至於平均呎租按月也升1.7%,至26.2元的水平,但與2019年歷史高位的30.4元仍有一段距離。

整體寫字樓的租售價表現亦向好,5月份甲廈價格按月升2.1%,租金亦升2.1%,上月除了黃竹坑之外,表現較佳的區域為中環,按月升約6.1%,最新平均呎價升至3.9萬元,主要受到指標甲廈皇后大道中九號一宗成交帶動。至於整體乙廈售價,按月亦升0.4%。

Billion closes $10.5b KITEC deal

A consortium led by Billion Development and Project Management plans to acquire Kowloon Bay International Trade & Exhibition Centre for about HK$10.5 billion from Hopewell, The Standard's sister newspaper Sing Tao Daily reported.

This is expected to be the largest property transaction year-to-date if the deal is confirmed. With a gross floor area of 1.77 million square feet, the per-sq-ft price will be about HK$5,900.

The consortium has arranged syndicated loans for the acquisition and has worked out two renewal plans.

The 14-story KITEC has a site area of about 239,800 sq ft. If it is redeveloped, the gross floor area can be 2.87 million sq ft, with a plot ratio of up to 12 times. The per-sq-ft rent at KITEC is around HK$20.

Apart from redeveloping the property into a Grade A commercial building, the consortium may also apply to the Town Planning Board to rezone the site for residential purposes, the sources said, adding that the new buyers value the large site area of the project and the sea view.

The consortium is said to include Sino Land (0083) and CSI Properties (0497), the report said.

Billion Development, Sino Land and CSI Properties won the tender for a commercial plot at the junction of Cheung Yip Street, Sheung Yee Road and Wai Yip Street in Kowloon Bay for HK$3.04 billion in 2015.

The plot has a site area of 40,849 sq ft and a maximum gross floor area of 490,188 sq ft.

Meanwhile, the Urban Renewal Authority said the contract for the development of the Oak Street / Ivy Street Development Project in Tai Kok Tsui has been awarded to K&K Property, with a tender amount of HK$618.1 million.

The URA earlier invited 39 property developers to submit tenders for the project following an expression of interest exercise. The URA received a total of 14 tenders from these 39 property developers when the submission of tender closed on May 20.

The project, which covers a site area of 6,662 sq ft, was commenced in March 2018. Upon completion, it will provide a maximum total gross floor area of 59,965 sq ft.

The URA will also invite interested developers to submit expressions of interest for the development of the Bailey Street / Wing Kwong Street Development Project in To Kwa Wan today.

Hong Kong’s co-working sector set to stabilise, recover as balance returns after years of unbridled expansion

Hong Kong’s co-working industry is recovering as many operators have folded following years of overexpansion, agent said

Hong Kong has the third largest number of co-working spaces in the world after London and New York, according to survey by UK firm CircleLoop

Hong Kong’s co-working sector is on track to stabilise and recover after a period of rapid expansion and will be well supported by the shift to remote working, industry observers say.

The co-working industry in Hong Kong is getting better now after adjustments made in the last few quarters, agent said.

“Previously many operators were in overexpansion mode, but then the market adjusted and many closed down and disappeared, creating a new balance point between supply and demand,” the agent said. “We think it will stabilise again towards year-end.”

The shared office space sector in Hong Kong saw high levels of growth between 2016 and 2018 when several operators announced expansion plans only to beat a hasty retreat after the economic downturn spurred by the social unrest in 2019 and the coronavirus pandemic sapped demand.

WeWork, the New York-based shared office provider, has reduced its Hong Kong footprint by half, after giving up 90,000 sq ft of space spread over eight floors in Tower 535 in Causeway Bay. The closure of the flex office was largely related to HSBC, which decided to relocate its business division from the WeWork space to their own building in Central, according to another property agent.

However, some flexible workplace operators, such as IWG, were expanding on the back of their global partnership with Standard Chartered. The bank’s 6,000 employees in Hong Kong can work at any of IWG’s offices after the lender implemented a flexible working arrangement last year.

This month, IWG opened its third centre in the city – a 50,000 sq ft flex office at The Quayside office tower in Kwun Tong, said Paul MacAndrew, country manager for IWG.

Another co-working operator, theDesk, said that all its seven locations in the city had high occupancy. Following a 65 per cent growth in membership last year, the company is “seeing a continuing growth trend” this year, said Paul Johnson, its chief commercial officer.

Separately, a survey by a UK-based company in May found that Hong Kong had the third most number of co-working spaces in the world after London and New York. Hong Kong had 166 co-working spaces, behind 313 in London and 229 in New York, according to the survey by CircleLoop, which operates a cloud-based business phone system.

“No one can deny that the 2020 pandemic has had a lasting impact on the way that companies work for good,” CircleLoop said. “As part of remote working, completing your workday from co-working spaces is a concept that businesses are taking advantage of more than ever before.”

The pandemic has been a game changer, creating instant disruption to the traditional workplace culture, while workers and companies adapt to the change, theDesk’s Johnson said.

With the remote working trend and decentralisation of workforce being implemented by multinational companies, the co-working industry is here to stay, he added.

Developer China Vanke’s Hong Kong unit sets prices for Ho Man Tin project 3 per cent above secondary market

First batch of 50 units at Vau Residence will be offered at an average price of HK$24,519 per square foot after a discount of as much as 16 per cent

Vanke will also offer cash rewards to the first 50 fully vaccinated buyers

Vanke Holdings (Hong Kong), a unit of China Vanke, China’s third-largest developer, will launch a new residential project in Ho Man Tin at prices in line with those of the secondary market.

The price list for a first batch of 50 units measuring 209 sq ft to 388 sq ft at Vau Residence was launched on Thursday. The units will be offered at an average price of HK$24,519 (US$3,160) per square foot after factoring in a discount of as much as 16 per cent. Vanke has not announced a starting date for the sales yet. The development will have 165 units in total.

The prices announced on Thursday are 3 per cent higher than those of units at Seven Victory Avenue, a two-year-old development that is within walking distance of Vau Residence. The units at Seven Victory Avenue were selling for HK$23,820 per square foot, according to property agency.

“It is common practice for developers to offer their first batch of units at competitive prices, to draw buying interest. Builders will increase prices for the subsequent batches, once they have generated strong sales,” agent said.

The price list’s launch comes amid growing optimism that Hong Kong home prices will climb further this year as the city’s economy shows further signs of recovery. On Tuesday, US investment bank Goldman Sachs said it expected a 5 per cent rise in home prices this year, while property agent has forecast a 15 per cent increase.

“The launch prices have taken into reference the first and second-hand transaction market. We will not rule out the possibility of increasing prices for the following batches,” said Quincy Chow, Vanke Holdings (Hong Kong)’s executive director.

The strategy of raising prices for subsequent batches has been adopted by Hong Kong property company New World Development (NWD). After all 331 units at its Pavilia Farm III next to Tai Wai Station were sold on their first day of sales last weekend, NWD has raised prices for the second batch of 388 units to HK$22,600 per square foot, a 13 per cent increase over the launch price of HK$19,999 per square foot offered about a week ago. The second batch goes on sale this Saturday.

Vau Residence would attract both end users and investors, the agent said. “We have seen a sharp rise in home sales in the primary and secondary markets. It reflects buying confidence, which has been boosted by the gradual improvement in economic activity. The reopening of the border later is bound to enhance the sales momentum, when more mainland Chinese are free to visit Hong Kong,” the agent said.

Vanke will also offer a cash reward of HK$28,000 to each of the first 50 Vau Residence buyers who have had their Covid-19 vaccinations before August 31. Vanke said it expects the cash reward will cost it about HK$1.4 million in total.

維特健靈老闆1.12億掃新港中心三戶


新冠肺炎疫情下,健康食品銷售持續增長,有相關行業老闆大手吸納商廈。中藥保健品製造和零售商維特健靈創辦人陳曦齡近期斥資約1.12億元,購入尖沙咀新港中心3個商廈單位。

根據土地註冊處資料顯示,新港中心一座511112室,建築面積分別為258725652053方呎,成交價分別為4028萬、3993.7萬及3196.5萬元,呎價俱為15570元,成交總值約1.12億元。是次成交由3家不同公司名義買入,但公司董事俱為陳曦齡,即維特健靈創辦人。

呎造15570 三個月貴6%

上述單位原由同一台籍投資者持有,他於1993年以4650萬元購入54個單位,總建築面積9138方呎,呎價5089元,以是次易手的3個單位成交呎價計,升值約2.1倍。

資料顯示,新港中心同層10室,建築面積約1430方呎,於今年3月期間以2100萬元易手,呎價14685元,而陳曦齡最新購入的單位呎價,則較3個月前高出6%

事實上,不少從事零售行業的投資者鍾情新港中心單位,如樓上燕窩莊董事侯君俠及侯君剛於去年11月曾斥3230.76萬元購入新港中心二座1112室,建築面積2071方呎,呎價15600元。

侯氏二人曾於20193月購入同層35室,建築面積共5338方呎,作價1.28億元,呎價23979元,即前後合共動用逾1.6億元入市該廈單位。

陳秉志減價沽商廈 冀下半年租務轉好

「磁帶大王」陳秉志近日減價沽商廈,他謂趁市轉好加快沽餘貨,而商廈租務仍弱,希望下半年通關後轉好。

封關下商廈需求弱

陳秉志兩年前曾拆售中環中心 39樓,期間售出7伙單位,尚餘5伙待售。業主見近日市況轉好,即趁機推售,並提供約1成折扣,結果非常奏效,5伙單位全沽清。「今次減價只因想盡快沽清該層樓面餘貨,先行套現。」

對於市況,他謂今年肯定勝去年,惟始終要通關才有利商廈,「市場上已沒有負面消息,市況已轉好,但封關下商廈需求弱,中環中心單位出租情況仍欠佳,希望4至6個月後通關,市況便會進一步向好。」

部署上,他謂最近沽貨集中在持貨已久的物業上,「例如很多已購入20至30年的住宅單位,價格已升很多,這些物業可先行沽售。入市方面,現時仍有在市場上物色,先沽中小型物業,年尾可望購入較大額物業。」

金鐘力寶中心質素佳單位多元化

金鐘商廈林立,當中力寶中心二座單位多,面積大細不一,屬區內最具規模而可供買賣的項目。

金鐘為傳統商業核心區,商廈甚多,而區內以太古地產 (01972) 旗下太古廣場為核心,惟屬大業主長綫收租項目,可供買賣的商廈,主要為力寶中心海富中心統一中心遠東金融中心等。以規模計,力寶中心二座合共樓面達130萬平方呎,為散業權商廈中最具規模,單位面積由數百平方呎至2萬餘平方呎,種類多故買賣宗數亦較多。

位置上,力寶中心可謂位處金鐘商廈群正中心,大廈多個出入口,分別連接金鐘廊、太古廣場海富中心等,四通八達。另一邊設有天橋連接花園道,可通往長江集團中心花園道三號等。此外,由於大廈對面為高等法院,故力寶中心亦獲不少律師行租用。

交通方面,由金鐘港鐵站出口步行至該廈需時約5分鐘,而近年港鐵新增南港島綫,及日後通車的沙中綫,金鐘站均為轉車站,目前由金鐘前往黃竹坑僅10分鐘車程,日後沙中綫可前往九龍及新界,更為方便。大廈地下設有巴士總站、的士站,加上提供停車場。

飲食配套上,基座設兩層零售商舖,當中包括咖啡室、酒樓及西式餐廳等,而最近亦有新增零食店等。另外,金鐘廊、太古廣場有大量餐廳及商店,加上金鐘區擁多間5星級酒店,設有高級餐廳供商戶作商務午餐。

項目提供兩幢寫字樓,1座樓高45層,而2座則樓高47層。物業一大特色是外形設計凹凸不平,故單位大細不一。電梯大堂設於物業高層地下,甚為寬敞,兼設玻璃採光,環境舒適,為同區散業權商廈中質素最理想。

單位景觀上,部分單位享全維港海景,前方仍有多幢商廈,中低層單位景觀難免受遮擋,另一面享中半山景觀,開揚舒適。

近半年 呎價低於3

由於物業為本港商廈呎價指標之一,近年造價頗波動,數年前樓市高峰期,呎價高見近5萬元,對上一宗較高呎價成交,為去年力寶中心二座2610至11室,面積約3,341平方呎,以約1.3億元成交,呎價約3.9萬元。

受環球疫情影響,整體甲廈呎價回落,該廈亦不例外,近半年該廈成交呎價,普遍低於3萬元。5月份該廈錄得兩宗買賣,其中1座中層2室,面積約1,993平方呎,以約5,900萬元成交,呎價約2.96萬元,另2座中層單位,面積約2,270平方呎,以每呎約2.55萬元易手,與兩年前高峰期相比明顯下跌。

中環地王財團出價趨審慎本周五截標估值逾370億

中環新海濱商業地將於本周截標,為同區罕有大型商業地,由於投資金額龐大,料入標財團以大型發展商為主,部分或合併財團,藉以降低風險,據業內人士指出,預期財團出價較審慎,估值約370億至547億,每呎樓面地價約2.3萬至3.4萬。

中環新海濱商業地將於本周五截標,地盤面積約51.6萬方呎,以地積比率約3.56倍計,可建樓面約184.2萬方呎,其中22.8萬方呎樓面需作興建停車場及政府、機構或社區用途,若扣除相關面積後,商業樓面為約161萬方呎。

恒基:將入標競投

恒基發言人稱,集團將參與競投該地皮;置地執行董事周明祖指出,該商業地皮位處本港核心商業地段,屬市場罕有供應,該項目推出對整個市場具正面影響,同時,集團對任何中環區內任何商業地均感興趣。

有測量師指出,早前銅鑼灣加路連山道商業地皮成功批出,對市場具正面作用,是次中環新海濱商業地,估計有3至5個發展商入標,除本地大型發展商外,部分會以合組財團形式入標,或中標後引入策略性投資者。

置地周明祖:對地皮具興趣

現時雖然不是出售大型商業地皮的最好時機,惟以庫房收益及中區長遠綫發展,亦理解政府做法,如成功售出,可增加市場信心,估計「雙信封」形式招標的流標機會較低,預計財團出價審慎,料每呎地價約2.3萬至2.5萬,市場估值約370億至400億,項目總投資約550億至650億。

另一測量師稱,該項目為市場矚目商業地王項目,因投資金額龐大,料入標財團以大型發展商為主,同時該地皮料吸引區內地主注意,料項目收約3至5份標書,不排除發展商合組形式競投,料每呎地價約3.43萬,市場估值約547億。

老鳳祥旺角「鋪王」約滿撤走完成六年租期業主最新減46%放租

百年老店「老鳳祥」在旺角核心地段、位處亞皆老街與西洋菜南街交界的鋪位經營六年,近日約滿撤走,市場消息指,業主就該「鋪王」叫租每月80萬,較舊租金減46%。

上址亞皆老街67至至69號,位處西洋菜南街大單邊,屬旺角區最旺地段,老鳳祥本月31日約滿,市場人士表示,早前見該金行職員在鋪內清場,並拉閘離開,近日未見開門營業;記者現場所見,老鳳祥貼出告示指,該店鋪營業至6月10日,客人如欲惠顧,請移玉步至同區彌敦道648號或者彌敦道613號的分店。本報分別向老鳳祥及該鋪位業主黎永滔查詢,惟直至截稿時都未聯絡得上。

最新放租80 每呎347

市場消息指出,老鳳祥早於2015年7月1日就該鋪位簽下3年梗約,月租約200萬,及至2018年7月1日續租三年,隨着鋪市回落,續租月租約150萬,今年6月30日約滿,老鳳祥決定撤出。業主黎永滔最新就該鋪位放租80萬,較舊租金150萬減約46%,最新每呎放租347元。

2015年200萬搶租

該鋪位地下建築面積約1700方呎,閣樓約600方呎,來自上海、逾百年歷史金鋪老鳳祥2015年逆市南下,率先於尖沙嘴海防道及旺角亞皆老街落位,勢與本地薑拗手瓜,當時亞皆老街鋪舊租客連鎖服裝店鱷魚恤,月租180萬,老鳳祥在逆市以200萬提價搶租,令市場矚目。

其時,老鳳祥亦承租海防道53至55號海防大廈單號鋪連閣樓,月租約180萬,梗約及生約各3年,惟於梗約約滿時撤出海防道,隨後先後於尖沙嘴彌敦道及旺角彌敦道租鋪設立新據點,並營運至今。上海老鳳祥創立於1848年,即滿清道光時期,是中國罕有的「百年老店」。

代理指出,由2014年發生佔中事件後,國內旅客逐年減少,直到2019年6月「動亂」,以及2020年1月疫情爆發後,旅客大跌99%,靠本地消費根本不能容納這麼多珠寶行業,現在四大核心區一綫鋪租金,較2013年高峰期大跌60%至70%。

Hong Kong is poised for its ‘land king’ as Central harbourfront site goes for tender with up to US$7.1 billion in valuation

The site could fetch HK$55 billion (US$7.1 billion), consultant said, who has appraised its value between HK$37 billion and HK$55 billion.

The tender for the 516,316 commercial site, which could yield a total gross floor area of 1.6 million sq ft, closes on Friday.

The prime Central harbourfront site, the last mega plot to go on sale in Hong Kong’s core business district, is likely to set a record as the most expensive in the city’s history, according to property consultants.

Under the government’s “two envelope” approach for the sale of New Central Harbourfront Commercial Site 3, submitted bids will be weighed equally for design and price. The tender for the 516,316 commercial site, which could yield a total gross floor area of 1.6 million sq ft, closes on Friday noon.

“Considering the plot’s strategic value, serious bidders will be submit high prices as well as innovative designs, as it is the last commercial site along the waterfront in Central,” consultant said.

The consultant expects the site, next to International Finance Centre, to fetch about HK$55 billion (US$7.1 billion) or HK$34,000 per square foot, the top end of his valuation between HK$37 billion and HK$55 billion.

“It is likely to set a record in Hong Kong’s land sale history,” the consultant said.

Hong Kong’s property market has resumed an upward trajectory after being weighed down for several quarters due to the anti-government protests in mid-2019 followed by the Covid-19 pandemic last year. With the city’s economy returning to growth, individual buyers are returning in droves while developers are bidding top dollar for plots offered for tender.

The current record for Hong Kong’s most expensive land is held by Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP). Hong Kong’s largest developer by market value won the commercial land atop the West Kowloon high-speed railway terminus on Austin Road for a record HK$42.23 billion in November 2019.

A surveyor, shared the consultant’s view.

“Given the large size of the plot and its rarity, it is likely to be the most expensive lot by value,” said Lam, who estimated the site could fetch as much as HK$48 billion, or HK$30,000 per square foot.

“The recent sale of a commercial site at higher-than-expected prices signals developers have regained confidence in the market outlook,” the surveyor said. “This project in Central will take about six to seven years to complete and the market could have fully recovered by then.”

Last month, Hysan Development and Chinachem Group bid HK$19.77 billion for a commercial plot on Caroline Hill Road in Causeway Bay, 15 per cent higher than the market expectation of HK$17.2 billion at the top end.

According to Lands Department’s sale document, bidders for the site are required to submit a technical design proposal with a model and a premium proposal in two separate envelopes before Friday noon.

The Post called 10 of Hong Kong’s top developers to ask them if they were taking part in the tender. Only Henderson Land Development said it would submit a tender while others declined to comment.

“We are very interested in bidding; we will participate,” said Martin Lee, co-chairman of Henderson Land, founded by Hong Kong’s second richest man Lee Shau-kee who has a net worth of US$33.9 billion.

Henderson Land and SHKP were part of a consortium that developed the IFC.

Hongkong Land, the largest landlord in Central, was non-committal, saying it does not comment on specific tenders.

“As a key stakeholder in Central, we believe that the development of the Central Harbourfront site will reinforce Central’s premium ecosystem and enhance its appeal as Hong Kong’s premier commercial district,” said executive director Raymond Chow.

Hongkong Land owns a portfolio of 450,000 square metres (4.84 million sq ft) of real estate, including grade A office buildings One, Two and Three Exchange Square and luxury shopping centre Landmark.

Donald Choi, chief executive of Chinachem Group, said the parcel being one of the last sites in Central along the waterfront made it “attractive” and that it was studying the tender.

“However, construction costs would be very expensive due to the rail transit line underground and complex road traffic conditions,” Choi said.

中環中心76樓月租200.8萬插24%

受新冠疫情影響,核心商業區商廈租金大跌,原由澳洲共享工作空間品牌Victory Offices租用的中環皇后大道中99中環中心極高層全層單位,突於去年底棄租,丟空半年後,最新以月租約200.8萬元租出,呎租85元,較前租約急跌23.7%

澳洲共享工作空間品牌Victory Offices20195月起租用中環中心 76樓全層,建築面積約23628方呎,作為該品牌首個澳洲以外的據點,當時月租高達約263萬元,呎租約111元,並簽約5年至2024年。

惟該品牌在簽署租約後,本港爆發社會事件,市況已開始逆轉,但仍無礙Victory Offices在港大展拳腳的決心,豪裝單位,提供共享工作辦公枱,並擁有接待處、酒吧、電話亭及禪室等配套,走高檔路線,更在20199月開幕。

每呎85元仍為今年新高

不過,去年初本港爆發新冠疫情,令本已疲弱的商廈需求雪上加霜,Victory Offices亦有指在去年中起欠租,最終在去年12月結業,即提早三年半退租。

由於市況疲弱,故上址業主世茂房地產 (00813)主席許榮茂重推單位放租時,已把每方呎叫租減至95元,較原本租金低14.4%。但仍要放租約半年,近日才以每方呎85元租出,涉及月租約200.8萬元,較Victory Offices所繳付的租金每月少收62.2萬元或23.7%。不過,由於76樓屬極高層單位,故是次成交呎租已為中環中心今年新高。

此外,合和實業旗下九龍灣國際展貿中心以約105億元售予億京牽頭財團。億京集團主席余卓兒接受傳媒訪問時指出,集團佔有七成權益,將維持原有地積比,重建成綜合式商業項目,包括商場及甲級寫字樓,總投資額約200億元。

新地高鐵站商地項目 削高度再闖關

新地 (00016) 去年向城規會爭取,將西九高鐵站商業地王「增高」建成兩幢鑽石型商廈不果,發展商近日修訂覆核方案改成兩幢「花瓣狀」商廈,並將高度最多削減26%,務求再度闖關。

該幅商業地是新地在2019年以422.3億元投得,發展商在去年向城規會提交新方案,除了將寫字樓樓面減少1成至256.2萬平方呎,並將商場零售樓面增加9成至約60萬平方呎外,還申請放寬高度限制3至4成,以興建兩幢最多30層高「鑽石型」商廈。

新方案設計兩幢「花瓣狀」商廈

新地提交的「增高」方案在去年未獲城規會批准,發展商申請覆核並在早前申請修訂方案,當中辦公室及商場樓面維持不變,但設計構思則由「兩粒鑽石」,變成兩幢「花瓣狀」的商廈,層數則為19層至30層高。

如果以建築高度 (主水平基準以上) 計算,由原本114米至159米,修訂為101米至148米高,其中在較近擎天半島的1A座高度由原本159米降低至118米,減少26%,而近漾日居的2B座則由114米減少至101米,減少11%。

雖然項目整體建築高度有所降低,不過仍然高於規劃大綱圖上90米至115米的高度,超出高度由3%至48米不等。

新地發言人指出,期望透過優化項目的規劃設計,有效地回應城規會和不同持份者的意見,為香港打造具特色的地標性項目,惠及西九龍區的居民,新方案大幅降低建築物高度,新增對公眾開放的免費天台戶外觀景台,並初步取得項目北面的西九龍站巴士總站天台花園的設計優化和管理權,令西九花園綠徑更為完整。

新地汀九帝景酒店 申改661伙住宅

疫情下酒店業受重創,繼長實後再有發展商將酒店轉型。新地申請將荃灣汀九只有14年歷史的帝景酒店,改裝成為661伙住宅,以及提供60個長者日間護理中心的宿位。

位於汀九橋落腳點的帝景酒店,現時為691間客房的酒店,在2007年落成,近日新地向城規會申請由原本「綜合發展區(1)」等用途,改劃作為「住宅 (乙類)2」用途,將現址15層高的酒店改裝成為住宅用途,將提供31.6萬平方呎住用樓面,將提供661個分層住宅以及1.8萬平方呎的會所,另外在地下及1樓的部分樓面則會作為長者日間護理中心,提供60個宿位。

事實上,近年長實 (01113) 亦加快將旗下酒店重建成住宅及商廈,去年亦獲准將天水圍嘉湖海逸酒店重建成5,000個住宅,而馬鞍山酒店海澄軒亦申請重建成758個住宅單位。

新世界繼園街地盤 申擴規模

另外,由新世界 (00017) 積極收購的北角繼園街一帶多幢舊樓重建,涉及地盤面積19.1萬平方呎,屬於「「綜合發展區 (1)」,原本在2014年獲准重建成1,249個住宅單位,其中第1期的東面地盤已經建成涉及611伙的柏蔚山,而屬於第2A及2B期的西面地盤則申請由原本638伙,增加33%至850伙。

當中繼園街60至76號的舊樓將會作為2A期地盤,興建1幢31層高的住宅大樓,提供310伙,涉及樓面約22.2萬平方呎,發展商指已經整合業權,可以短期落實分期發展,並在2024年年底落成。

Hong Kong’s home buying frenzy returns, as a record number of bidders snapped up every flat of New World’s The Pavilia Farm III project on offer in Tai Wai

New World Development received 30,108 online registrations of interest, or a record 89 bids for each of the 338 flats on offer at The Pavilia Farm III

Every flat was sold as at 7pm, even as the average price rose 13 per cent compared with the launch price last month

Hong Kong’s property buyers snapped up every single flat put on the market by New World Development during its second round of weekend sales of The Pavilia Farm III project in Tai Wai, with a record number of bidders chasing after every unit.

As many as 30,108 online bids were received for 338 flats, or 89 registrations of interest for every apartment on average, according to a New World spokeswoman. Every unit had sold out by 7pm, according to several sales agents.

The project’s location in Tai Wai, the main transport interchange in Hong Kong’s New Territories, has attracted owner-occupiers and investors alike, as its proximity to amenities, schools, shopping and the transport network improves its potential rental yield, agents said.

“We see a return of demand by investors, as they accounted for 40 per cent of the prospective buyers we received” for this project, agent said, adding that the ratio had increased from 20 per cent in the first quarter.

A lack of new property projects in Tai Wai over the near term, and its connection with the Sha Tin-to-Central link being built by Hong Kong’s subway network have combined to generate enthusiastic interests for the project, the agent said.

The Pavilia Farm has seen brisk take-up since it was first launched on October 17 last year. The strong demand seen Saturday followed brisk sales performance over the previous week, when all 331 units in the first round sale were sold last weekend.

The current low interest rate environment, and swelling optimism over the state of the Hong Kong’s economic outlook have spurred more investors to park their money into real estate, property agents said. The US Federal Reserve has signalled that they would keep interest rate at near-zero through 2023.

Hong Kong’s first-quarter economy expanded at a faster-than-expected 7.9 per cent, the fastest quarterly pace in 11 years, beating economists’ forecasts and bolstering investors’ confidence in the city’s property market.

The improved local business sentiment, coupled with the support from various government relief measures, should help domestic demand to improve in the period ahead, the government has said earlier this month. It has forecast the Hong Kong economy to grow by 3.5 per cent to 5.5 per cent this year, noting however the uncertainty associated with the pandemic is still high.

The average price for the latest batch rose 13 per cent to HK$22,600 per square foot, compared with the launch price of this phase when it was announced last month.

Units on offer ranged from 307 square feet to 1,022 square feet (95 square metres), at between HK$6.9 million and HK$25.9 million (US$3.34 million), or HK$18,498 to HK$25,952 per sq ft after factoring in as much as 20 per cent discount.

The Pavilia Farm, comprising several tower blocks and the largest shopping centre in the eastern New Territories, comprises 3,090 flats in total over several phases. The Phase III development has 892 units and is scheduled to be completed in June 2023.

中環新海濱商業地 掀地王爭霸戰


佔據中環心臟位置的新海濱3號商業地王,將於周五截標;區內擁有地標項目的大型發展商,如持有國金 (IFC)的恒地 (00012) 已表態一定會參與競投,英資怡和旗下的置地有機會進一步擴大商業版圖,連同會德豐地產等財團,勢掀一場「地王爭霸戰」。

經歷長達半年招標期的中環新海濱3號商業地王,終在本周五 (18日) 截標。這幅地皮位於怡和大廈對出,比鄰國際金融中心一期及二期,旁邊亦是知名旅遊景點香港摩天輪。地皮面積近52萬平方呎,最高可建樓面約161.5萬平方呎。中標財團另需興建約23萬平方呎的政府設施,包括重置現時的郵政總局等。地皮市場估值330億至553億元。

梁志堅:靚地吸本地龍頭入標

貴為中環核心地段的罕有大型商業地,市場預計,地皮會吸引本港多間一綫發展商競投。持有國際金融中心一期及二期的恒地,已表明一定會參與競投,因為地皮屬「靚地」,加上其發展潛力大;惟現階段未可透露發展方案及投資額。即使在疫情打擊下,中環的甲級寫字樓空置率攀升,但是集團依然十分看好中環的商業前景,又形容「國金的租客退租後,即有新租客承接」。

至於屬英資怡和旗下的置地,目前在中環亦擁有多個商業項目,包括比鄰地皮的怡和大廈交易廣場置地廣場太子大廈等,屬「中環大地主」。而怡和已經多年未有參與競投本港地皮,但今次中環地王位於集團商業王國版圖內,或會吸引置地罕有出手競投。雖然置地公司執行董事周明祖日前未有正面回答集團是否有意入標地皮,惟他形容,集團對於所有中環區的項目都感興趣,又稱得悉很多人有留意這幅地皮。

其次,會德豐地產主席梁志堅表示,集團已經思考了很久,並正考慮會否入標,因為入標前的工作繁多,坦言「有好多事要理會」,並有意發展商場及寫字樓。他直言,鑑於地皮位處市區地段,估計一定會吸引本地龍頭發展商入標。

測量師估 中資參與機會不大

值得一提的是,近年本港官地不乏中資參與,例如中資平安人壽去年以約113億元購入西九高鐵站上蓋商業地王辦公室部分的30%業權,因此中資亦有機會競投上述地王。

有測量師預計,雖中資有能力承擔高昂的投地金額,惟他們對香港的熟悉度始終不及本港發展商,因此他預計中資入標的機會不太大,或有可能夥拍本地發展商競投。不過,由於中資希望在中環「插旗」,因而不排除他們日後會收購地皮的整座商廈,並取得命名權。以目前市況推斷,地皮商廈部分落成後呎租可達80至100元水平。

置地靈活辦公空間 租期3個月起

置地近日在公爵大廈開設兩層共2.5萬平方呎的靈活的辦公空間「Centricity Flex」,租約期短至3個月起,希望打造生態圈,為其中環商廈群引入更多租戶。

公爵大廈Centricity Flex 涉2.5萬呎

該Centricity Flex設在公爵大廈17樓及18樓,合共面積2.5萬平方呎,最多可放置320張工作枱,每次須承租至少300平方呎空間或8張工作枱。跟置地旗下商廈多以長租約為主不同,Centricity Flex租約期為3個月至3年不等。據指已有一家國際金融機構將成為主要租戶,首次進駐中環。

同時,Centricity Flex亦設有16個單人或雙人辦公隔間、7間會議室、22張流動座位 (Hot desks)。單人辦公室時租介乎50至100元,而會議室時租則介乎400至1,700元。置地指,以項目的位置及質素,定位為高端產品,但在市場中並不屬於最貴的一類。

置地執行董事周明祖指,置地旗下中環物業為租戶提供一站式解決方案,小至辦公隔間、大至超過十萬平方呎的多層辦公空間,租約期短至數月、長至10年以上,以滿足企業不同階段的增長需求。

Centricity Flex目標租戶是優質企業,尤其是希望以更靈活的租賃條款物色辦公室的金融機構及專業服務機構。周明祖稱,希望能夠建立起生態圈,豐富中環商廈群的商戶組合。至於Centricity主管班立德則指,Centricity Flex為企業的業務增長和靈活發展提供支持。

粉嶺安樂村 轉發展數據中心

踏入5G年代,市場對數據中心的需求大大增加,不少財團積極購入本港工業地發展相關業務。觀乎近年粉嶺安樂村工業區有不少新發展,區內7個工廈興建或活化項目,共提供約114萬平方呎樓面,當中有部分已落實發展為數據中心,包括已批予外資的安樂門街工業官地,涉約21.7萬平方呎樓面。

鄰近粉嶺聯和墟的安樂村工業區,範圍達351.1萬平方呎,現時屬於「工業」規劃用途。區內由98幢工業大廈,及政府持有的20幅休憩用地、臨時停車場等組成。有見社會對工廈、貨倉仍然有相當需求,因此規劃署之前決定保留該區作為「工業」規劃用途,並放寬規劃發展限制。

7項目 提供逾114萬呎樓面

隨着資訊發達,並吸引不少本地及外地發展商在港買地發展數據中心。近年政府陸續推出該區的政府工業用地,其中最新於本年初,以約8.1294億元批出的的粉嶺安樂門街工業地,亦將會發展為數據中心。地皮位於粉嶺安樂門街、安全街與安居街交界,面積約4.34萬平方呎,以地積比率約5倍發展,最高可建樓面約21.7萬平方呎,以每平方呎樓面地價約3,750元計,創下新界北區工業地呎價新高,可見相關用地需求上升。

上述地皮最終由新加坡豐樹產業奪得,集團考慮到電子商務、雲端運算及5G網絡日漸盛行,上述業務對數據中心的需求逐步增加等因素,決定在此地皮設立集團首個位於香港的數據中心,並計劃出租予終端使用者或數據中心營運商等。該數據中心除了服務本地用家外,亦會提供良好及快速的網絡予深圳的雲端用家,及其餘內地主要城市的用家。

佳明兩地皮 建出租用數據中心

值得一提的是,去年佳明旗下兩間全資附屬公司,亦分別以約1.68億及約1.88億元,購入粉嶺安居街3號及粉嶺安福街7號地皮。兩幅地皮面積分別約1.79萬及1.91萬平方呎。如以地積比率5倍發展,經補地價後,分別可以興建約8.95萬及約9.55萬平方呎樓面的工廈。佳明亦表示,購入地皮後,將興建兩座數據中心,並作租賃用途。另一方面,區內亦有其他新式工廈或活化項目,包括區內對上一幅批出,於2018年由億京奪得的安樂村用地。該地皮已獲批興建1幢15層高(1層地庫上)的新型工廈,涉及總樓面約30.18萬平方呎,料主要作工業物流等用途。若以中標價計,每平方呎樓面地價約2,430元。

同時,已故舖王「波叔」鄧成波於2014年購入的勉勵龍中心,總樓面約15.3萬平方呎,已獲批活化用途,可重建作商店及食肆,重建後樓面最高約21.19萬平方呎。

廖偉麟拆售有線大樓全層

另一代理表示,由資深投資者廖偉麟持有的荃灣有線電視大樓30樓全層拆售,全層樓面共分14伙,其中3伙早前率先獲預留,推售單位面積約1380至3418方呎,意向呎價由約5500元起,入場價約759萬。項目提供長短成交期,由3個月起至最長達12個月,項目開售後隨即獲買家青睞,以約1253.38萬購入30樓01室,面積約2161方呎,呎價約5800元。

該代理續表示,現時待售的10個餘貨單位以連約出售,月租由約1.86萬至相連戶約11萬餘元不等,租期最短至2021年8月,最長至2024年初。

Hongkong Land opens its Centricity Flex space in Central, embracing flexible work as more people work from home

Hongkong Land’s Centricity Flex, with 25,000 square feet (2,322 square metres) of space, opens today on the 17th and 18th floor of the Landmark Edinburgh Tower on Queen’s Road Central

Private suites range from 900 sq ft to 2,300 sq ft on the 17th floor while those on the 18th can be configured subject to client’s needs

Hongkong Land, the biggest commercial landlord in the city’s Central business district, has opened a flexible work environment at one of the world’s most expensive office addresses, in a U-turn to its reticence to develop co-working space.

The developer’s Centricity Flex, featuring 25,000 square feet (2,322 square metres) opens today on the 17th and 18th floor of the Landmark Edinburgh Tower on Queen’s Road Central. Other tenants in the tower include the audit firm PwC, the Swiss private bank Bank J. Safra Sarasin and the white-shoe legal practices K&L Gates and Skadden Arps.

An international financial services firm has signed on as the first tenant of Centricity Flex, occupying a private office suite, Hongkong Land said without disclosing the customer’s name.

“We would like to offer companies that are similar to those in our current tenants portfolio an option to traditional leases,” said the developer’s executive director Raymond Chow. “By working in Centricity Flex, tenants can get a first impression of being part of Hongkong Land’s community.”

The market for flexible working space is picking up again in Hong Kong after the initial slump brought by tough social-distancing rules during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic.

Co-working space operators, who often sublet space to other tenants, have developed a bad name, as the market shrank in the past year. WeWork, the global pioneer of the co-working space concept, gave up 90,000 square feet of space over eight floors in Causeway Bay in March, shrinking its real estate footprint as more people chose to work from home.

With office vacancy rates soaring to a 15-year record of 7.5 per cent, a change in behaviour is under way: co-working space is becoming attractive again as firms eschew office space that cost tens of millions of dollars in annual rent for flexible arrangements during the post-coronavirus era that include a mix of working from home and working in the office. The up shot is cheaper overhead, whilst maintaining the prestige of an office address in Central.

Hongkong Land, 50 per cent owned by the conglomerate Jardine Matheson Holdings, is not the only developer to embrace the co-working concept. Great Eagles Holdings, the owner of The Langham chain of hotels, opened its fifth Eaton Club flexible space at its Great Eagle Centre towers in Wan Chai in December. China Resources, one of the largest mainland Chinese conglomerates in Hong Kong, opened its China Resources Building Business Lounge at its building in the same neighbourhood two months earlier.

Swire Properties, the real estate unit of the Swire Group that already operates the Blueprint flexible workspace, is considering adding more space at its Two Taikoo Place commercial property in Quarry Bay, scheduled for completion in 2022.

“Across the entire market, landlords have increased the flexibility they offer to tenants,” property agent said. “There is increased emphasis from portfolio landlords to offer greater occupier amenity and experience, and it ranges from flexible office space, communal meeting and conferencing facilities.”

Hongkong Land owns about 450,000 square metres (4.84 million square feet) of prime office and retail space in Central. About 40 per cent of the company’s tenants are financial service institutions, while 30 per cent are law firms, Hongkong Land said.

The private suites at Centricity Flex range from 900 sq ft to 2,300 sq ft on the 17th floor while those on the 18th can be configured subject to client’s needs. Tenants of Centricity Flex can rent any of the seven meeting rooms, hot desks and working pods on an hourly basis.

The average monthly rent for grade A office space in Central has fallen to HK$100 per square foot, according to another property agent. The falling cost has attracted some tenants back to the area, with S&P moving back to Three Exchange Square in Central, from the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in West Kowloon, paying HK$2.2 million a month.

Co-working space with 50 desks at Centricity Flex costs an estimated HK$230,000 a month based on calculations by South China Morning Post, and comes with access to all services, including discounts at any of the restaurants in Hongkong Land’s portfolio such as the Michelin-starred Amber, with a month-long reservations waiting list.

“We want to have a relationship with you and then we move that relationship forward for many years, so it’s not just a short-term relationship; we want to have a relationship for generations,” Chow said. “It is also an extension of our services to our current tenants as all facilities in Centricity Flex are open to them. It’s not really co-working, but flexible facilities.”

地王建築限制多 設計成取勝關鍵


中環新海濱地王設計是投標勝敗的重要因素,由於地王受制於高度限制,加上要興建大型觀景平台,預期商場部分或要向地庫發展,而上蓋興建數幢10多層高中小型商廈,日後易於連命名權全幢形式出售。

將於明日截標的中環新海濱3號地皮,雖然地盤面積達51.6萬平方呎,總樓面達184萬平方呎,但建築上卻有不少限制,影響到發展商的設計及剪裁,最終亦令地價受到影響。

首先是地皮位於中環海濱地段,規劃上早已定位為中低層發展,招標文件內非地價評分部分列明,地皮的西面建築高限大約50米 (主水平基準以上,下同),而東面則以觀景平台為主,高限只有16米。

料日後連命名權全幢出售

由於規劃大綱 (Planning Brief) 內表明,不傾向興建長的連續立面 (long continuous façade),發展商亦難以將樓面集中在西面地盤興建1幢「肥、矮」的巨型商廈,而是興建多幢中小型商廈,估計每幢樓面介乎20萬至40萬平方呎。

近年不少內地財團來港購入全幢商廈作投資,並擁有命名權,包括早前平安人壽斥113億元入股新地 (00016) 西九高鐵站上蓋商廈的30%業權,而中國人壽及深圳祥祺集團分別購入紅磡One HarbourGate兩幢商廈等,日後新海濱上蓋的商廈亦會受市場歡迎。

同時,由於中環核心區甲廈的價值,高於零售商場的價值,雖然賣地條款無限制地皮辦公室樓面上限,但受到上述高限影響,以現時甲級商廈樓底達3.8至4.5米高,意味最多亦只能夠興建11至13層高的寫字樓,發展商或要撥出相當樓面作零售商場用途。

約半樓面作商場 或影響地價

有測量師認為,在高限影響之下發展商「無選擇」,估計將大約一半樓面作商場用途,而由於中環區內商場地價估計只是1萬多元,遠低於商廈地價的4萬至5萬元,導致整個地皮的地價將會被大幅拖低。

同時,項目規定須提供26.9萬平方呎的公共休憩空間,其中一半更要位於地面,加上30%的上蓋面積 (Site Coverage) 須作綠化用途,亦即是整幅用地相當多的地面部分不能夠興建商場等建築物,部分商場樓面或要下移至地庫部分。

該測量師認為,上蓋設計要取得高分,一定是傾向開放更多公共空間給市民享用,而商場在限制下使用地庫的設計,由於建築成本高,亦會影響到地價。

除了商場向地下發展外,地皮被龍和路及民耀街兩條馬路橫跨,而地底則被機場鐵路掉車隧道,以及中環灣仔繞道的隧道保護區所切開,導致地皮規劃上要一分為三。

廖偉麟拆售有線電視大樓 入場費759萬起

荃灣由傳統工業區搖身為新界核心商貿區,加上區內近年有多個住宅相繼入伙,帶動區內物業投資價值,而資深投資者廖偉麟看好工商前景,將早年購入的荃灣有線電視大樓高層全層單位,重新裝修再拆售,部分交吉或連租約,買家更可選擇長或短成交期,以迎不同需要,現推售9個單位,意向呎價約由5,500元起,門檻低至約759萬元起。

長或短成交期 應不同所需

代理指,由資深投資者廖偉麟持有的荃灣海盛路9號有線電視大樓30樓全層,現正分拆出售,全層樓面共分為14個單位,其中3伙已於早前率先獲預留,而現正推售的精選單位,面積由約1,380至3,418平方呎不等,意向呎價由約5,500元起,入場費約759萬元起。業主更悉心提供長、短成交期,以應不同用家所需,成交期由最短3個月,至最長達12個月,讓準買家於財務安排上更具彈性。至於項目開售旋即獲承接,為30樓01室,面積約2,161平方呎,以約1,253.38萬元成交,平均呎價約5,800元。

速獲承接 呎價5800

該代理指,現時待售的餘貨單位均以連租約形式出售,月租由約1.86萬元至相連戶月租約11萬餘元不等,租期最短至2021年8月,最長至2024年年初,買家可因應自用或投資所需作出靈活選擇;再者,業主放售誠意十足,自行斥資約250萬元為30樓全層作全面翻新,包括樓層大堂、走廊、洗手間等,大為提升物業叫座力,而放售的單位中,部分更可享開揚海景,增添放售單位的吸引力。

該代理續指,有線電視大樓作為荃灣區地標式大廈,雖然物業屬工業用途,但其裝修、設計及配套等均可媲美寫字樓,該廈的電梯大堂採用雲石設計,新簇時尚,予人感覺光鮮明亮,而該廈早前更有消息指獲外資基金以約26億元洽購一籃子單位,涉及總樓面面積逾56萬平方呎,足以證明投資者對該廈潛力極具信心,而是次拆售的30樓全層項目,既已全面翻新,同時又提供靈活的成交期、部分單位交吉及連租約可選,料銷售反應將理想。

銅鑼灣商業地王中標價高次標48%

銅鑼灣加路連山道商業地王於上月開標,由希慎夥拍華懋以逾197億,力壓其餘5家財團得手,樓面呎價約18374元,地政總署昨公布其餘落選標價,出價介乎21.53億至133.31億,樓面呎價2000至12385元,中標價較次標高約48%,而最低出價則較中標價低出達89%。

希慎夥華懋逾197億投得

加路連山道商業地王於上月由希慎夥拍華懋以逾197億投得,高市場估值上限價逾10%。地政總署昨以不具名方式,公開該地皮各標價,出價介乎21.53億至133.31億,以可建樓面約107.6萬方呎計,樓面呎價由2000至12385元。

其中,次標為133.31億,樓面呎價12385元,首標較次標價高約48%,由此可見,希慎等對該地皮可謂志在必得,同時亦有財團以「執雞價」競投,最低標價為21.53億,樓面呎價2000元,較中標價低約89%。

次標133.31 呎價1.23

該地皮於上月截標,接獲6份標書,除了成功奪地的希慎及華懋,其餘財團包括長實、新地、會德豐地產、領展,而信和夥拍利福、嘉里及中渝置地合組財團。

最低標價僅21.53 每呎二千

發展商早前曾指,地皮總投資額約250億,甲廈樓面大約93萬呎,在地面興建的甲廈,樓高不超過30層,另四層地庫包括有停車場,未來將接駁有蓋天橋,由希慎廣場貫通不同商廈,並伸延至新項目所在地,步程只不過7分鐘。新投得地皮為繁華熱鬧的「利園版圖」,增添一個「銅鑼灣後花園」。

Causeway Bay plot winning bid miles ahead of rest

The second-highest bidder for the prime commercial site on Caroline Hill Road in Causeway Bay only offered HK$13.33 billion, which was nearly 33 percent lower than the winning bid from Hysan Development (0014) and Chinachem.

Last month, Hysan and Chinachem won the tender with a bid of HK$19.78 billion or HK$18,374 per buildable square foot, beating market estimates.

Six consortia, including CK Asset (1113), Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) and Link REIT (0823), joined the tender.

The third-highest bidder offered HK$12.01 billion while the remaining bids were lower than HK$10 billion with the lowest being HK$2.15 billion.

中環地王截標掀爭奪戰料四至五財團入標邀國際建築師操刀


市場焦點中環新海濱商業地王於今日截標,無論發展規模以及所需資金龐大,料入標財團以大型發展商為主。恒基、會德豐地產均表明會競投,同時,市場人士亦預期,新地、長實,以及作為中區大地主的置地亦會加入爭逐;由於地皮採「雙信封」形式,除著重出價外,亦要評定其設計方案,據悉,有打算入標的大型財團,已邀請世界知名建築商為項目設計。知情人士透露,料項目收4至5份標書。

地產界人士認為,雖然過去2年,本港受政治、經濟以及疫情等因素影響,商業地皮價值大受打擊,其中啟德商業地更曾流標收場,然而,考慮中環區內近年商業地皮的地價,以及上月銅鑼灣商業地王以天價成交,相信今日截標的中環商業地王,將吸引大型發展商入標競投。

採「雙信封」式招標

其中,曾以地價逾232億、樓面呎價約5萬奪得中環美利道商業地的恒基,其發言人稱,將會入標競投。

會德豐地產主席梁志堅稱,今日亦會入標競投,期望可成功奪地,但是否會再創地價新高,則認為各財團在出價上會各自計數。至於華懋執行董事兼行政總裁蔡宏興稱,是次入標不作評論,但由於地皮底下有港鐵及隧道等,在建築上較為複雜,將直接推高建築成本。

恒基會德豐出擊

市場人士認為,大型發展商新地及長實,相信亦會入標競投,而作為中環大地主的置地,相信亦會入標;此外,以19年批出的西九龍高鐵站商業地王為例,當時地價逾422億,樓面呎價約1.3萬,由於涉及資金龐大,當日只接獲3份標書,包括最終中標的新地,其餘則為長實,而信和夥拍恒基、九倉、華置及利福國際合組財團入標。

市場料長實新地置地將角逐

此外,由於地皮採「雙信封」形式,除着重出價外,亦要評定其設計方案,兩者比重各佔50%,故此就算標價最高,惟設計未能配合整體規劃,都未必可成功投得,發展商為其一擊即中,已搜羅全世界出名的建築師為地皮作設計,部分更「爭崩頭」互搶著名的建築師行,亦有發展商更邀請多達一家建築商以上,希望取得最佳方案,以圖脫穎而出。

同時亦有大型財團,已邀請世界知名建築商作項目經理,務求在建築及設計上,可配合周遭整體規劃,以及成為地標式項目。

有測量師指出,早前銅鑼灣加路連山道商業地以高於市場預期上限批出,對市場具正面作用,料中環海濱商業地王可截收約3至5份標書,以大型發展商作主導,並料部分發展商以合組財團入標。

九龍站422億批出

近年市場推出多幅商業地王,並連錄天價成交,當中以新地於2019年、豪擲逾422億奪得西九龍高鐵站上蓋商業地最矚目,另外,希慎於上月亦夥拍華懋以197億奪得銅鑼灣加路連山道商業地,每方呎地價約1.83萬,高於市場估值上限逾一成。

每呎樓面地價1.33

新地於2019年11月以逾422億投得高鐵站上蓋商業地王,創政府地皮成交價紀錄,樓面呎價約13345元,另外,於上月截標的銅鑼灣加路連山道商業地王,由「銅鑼灣大地主」希慎夥拍華懋豪擲逾197億、力壓其餘5家財團得手,樓面呎價約18374元,較次標高近五成。另外,早前於市場批出的天價地王,包括恒基於2017年以逾238奪得中環美利道商業地,每方呎地價高見5萬,較區內甲廈現樓售價更高,反映發展商不惜以高價爭奪市區罕有地王。

核心區個別甲廈減價盤 承接力理想

近日中環甲廈成交略增,特別有業主減價拆售單位,即在極短時間沽清,反映市況有改善,甲廈樓價可望企穩。

據代理10大商廈統計顯示,上月10大指標商廈錄6宗成交,整體交投量仍低。中環指標甲廈皇后大道中九號錄得買賣,涉及高層05室,面積約2,800平方呎,以約1.26億元成交,呎價約4.5萬元,造價頗理想。

尖東新文華中心單位 6180萬沽

九龍區方面,尖東新文華中心A座3樓1、2、3室,面積約6,500平方呎,以6,180萬元易手,呎價約9,508元,新買家公司董事包括林佑碧、林佑珊及蘇園園,為任天堂遊戲機Switch等遊戲代理商。原業主於08年以4,245.75萬元購入該批單位,持貨13年,帳面賺1,934.25萬元

中環中心拆售 5單位涉3.3

除了10大商廈外,近期甲廈成交焦點,盡在中環中心上,「磁帶大王」陳秉志推出中環中心39樓最後5伙,當中包括01、07、11、12及13室,面積由1,995至2,769平方呎,如3901室,面積約2,726平方呎,以約8,924萬元成交,呎價約3.3萬元。據悉,該批單位由陳秉志持有,早年分拆出售,尚餘5單位,近日再度推出。為配合銷售,業主提供優惠,每個單位回贈1,000萬元,變相減價逾1成。由於價格相對吸引,業主推出僅兩天,5單位均獲承接,業主套現約3.3億元。

代理分析,近期本港疫情緩和,整體投資氣氛轉佳,而甲廈業主普遍實力較強,少有減價,故整體成交量未反彈。他指,從近期中環中心單位略為減價,即在一日內售出5伙,反映市場投資氣氛甚佳,買家見價格有回調即入市,可見資金仍多。租務方面,該代理指近期租務相對穩定,而租金漸平穩,如金鐘力寶中心,呎租約45至50元,近期明顯見跌幅緩和。

後市上,代理認為目前投資氣氛明顯勝去年,惟大部分甲廈業主減價幅度不高,準買家仍未追價,故相信短時間內交投量仍偏低,而價格方面,隨着氣氛轉好,甲廈價格可望企穩。

中環甲廈空置率 5月錄約7.35%

有代理行資料顯示,5月份中環區甲級商廈空置率錄得約7.35%,比4月輕微上升0.15個百分點;而中環區商廈空置率自今年1月起走勢趨穩,連續第7個月維持於7%水平。

該代理行指,中環區商廈需求穩定,加上部分商廈租務安排更見靈活,業主提供較長免租期及裝修優惠,吸引不少企業進駐及續租,減低「去中環化」影響,支撑中環區商廈空置率及租金走勢趨穩定。

馬亞木1.21億沽旺角車場16年升值2.5倍

近期投資市場買賣升溫,有投資老手亦趁勢沽貨,「小巴大王」馬亞木沽售旺角奶路臣街停車場,作價1.218億,新買家料回報2.5厘,物業於逾16年升值逾2.5倍。

土地註冊處資料顯示,旺角奶路臣街33至37號依利大廈3至6樓,合共4層停車場,於上月25日以1.218億成交,原業主YAN YAN MOTORS LTD,董事包括馬亞木及馬僑生等人,YAN YAN在2004年10月以3450萬購入車場,持貨逾16年,帳面獲利8730萬,物業升值逾2.5倍。據悉,該車場月租約25萬,新買家料回報2.5厘。新買家為Rich China Ltd,公司註冊處顯示,該公司董事蔡姓人士,報住廣州番禺區,料為內地客。

買家料內地客 回報2.5

馬亞木兒子馬僑生接受本報查詢表示,集團持有該車場一段相當長時間,早前獲買家洽購,出價合理,集團見獲利不俗,故選擇沽貨止賺。

馬亞木對上一宗買賣為去年5月,沽售美孚新邨一個鋪位,作價約1.4億,涉及美孚新邨萬事達廣場地下N52號鋪,面積約2800方呎,平均呎價約5萬,租客華僑永亨銀行,月租約40萬,料回報約3.4厘。馬亞木於1999年6月夥拍投資者郭木材及家族成員,合作購入該鋪位,作價3000萬,持貨約20年帳面獲利約1.1億,物業升值約3.6倍。

馬僑生:沽貨止賺獲利不俗

同年5月,他亦沽售北角鋪位,糖水道16號益漢洋樓地下F鋪,以3100萬元沽出,建築面積約1700方呎,呎價約1.82萬,租客麵包店,月租約8.5萬,回報約3.3厘。

市場消息透露,荃灣川龍街99號鋪及入則閣,以7400萬易手,建築面積約1000方呎,入則閣600方呎, 平均呎價7.4萬 (未設入則閣),現址位處大單邊,租客為雜貨及菜檔等,月租14萬,新買家料回報2.3厘。原業主於1967年以13.3萬買入,持貨54年,帳面獲利7386.7萬,物業升值555倍。

近期,荃灣區內矚目成交為卓悅控股沽售新界荃灣大河道10至16號及20號,位處登發街交界單邊鋪,建築面積約1170方呎,以1.15億易手,卓悅售後租回,為期兩年,月租27萬。

寶聲5800萬購舖 平878萬統一業權

根據土地註冊處資料,九龍城獅子石道75號地舖連閣樓,面積1,800平方呎,連1,400平方呎閣樓,以5,800萬元成交。而翻查法庭判案書資料,寶聲曾申請強拍,而是次購入的地舖單位,佔整幢物業估值約29.9%,意味若寶聲在去年以強拍方式統一業權方式購入地舖,便需要支付拍賣成交價2.23億元的29.9%、即約6,679萬元。比起要以強拍方式須花費的6,679萬元購入業權,是次寶聲收購成功節省約878萬元的開支。

Hong Kong’s largest developers, and richest families, pile into blockbuster seafront land sale in nod to city’s outlook

Sun Hung Kai Properties, CK Asset Holdings, Henderson Land Development, Wheelock’s Wharf unit, Sino Land and the Great Eagle Group are bidding for Site 3 at Connaught Place.

The land measuring 516,316 square feet, which can yield 1.61 million square feet of gross floor area, is valued at between HK$37 billion and up to HK$55 billion.

Half a dozen real estate developers owned by Hong Kong’s wealthiest families have thrown their hats into the ring to bid for the largest plot of harbourfront commercial land in Central, in a test of the property market that offers a peek into the city’s future standing as an Asian financial hub.

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP), Hong Kong’s largest developer by market value, controlled by the Kwok family, confirmed that it submitted a bid for Site 3 at Connaught Place in Central, a 516,316 square feet (47,970 square metres) plot that includes the 1976 General Post Office. The land parcel, which can yield 1.61 million square feet of gross floor area, has been valued at between HK$37 billion and up to HK$55 billion (US$7.1 billion), topping the scales as the most expensive plot in a city used to setting price records.

“Most of the big developers are taking part in the tender process, which shows their long term confidence in Hong Kong’s economic outlook,” property agent said, who had expected between three to five bids. Total development cost could top HK$65 billion inclusive of the land cost, the agent said.

Hong Kong’s economy grew at a larger-than-expected pace of 7.9 per cent in the first three months, the fastest quarterly pace in 11 years compared with a low base last year, as the city claws its way out of its worst recession on record. Two years of economic slump - the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 after the street protests of 2019 - are casting doubt on the city’s viability as a financial centre, as increased emigration and sporadic rumours of capital flight - dispelled by local authorities - weigh on the city’s future.

CK Asset Holdings, one of the two flagship companies owned by Hong Kong’s richest tycoon Li Ka-shing, submitted a bid. Henderson Land Development

, founded by the second-richest tycoon Lee Shau-kee is also taking part. Wharf Real Estate Investment Company, a unit of the Woo family’s Wheelock and Company Limited, said it submitted a bid in a consortium with the city’s subway operator MTR Corporation and ChinaChem Group.Sino Land, controlled by the family of Robert Ng Chee Siong, submitted a joint bid with Great Eagle Holdings of the Lo family, as well as the Chinese state-owned enterprise China Merchants Group.

Hongkong Land, the largest commercial landlord in Central and a unit of the conglomerate Jardine Matheson, declined to say if it submitted a bid.

The sale of the land by the Hong Kong government is also a crucial test of the so-called two envelope approach, which awards the winning bid on the merit of designs, planning and their congruence with the surrounding environment, in addition to beating the minimum reserve price.

The approach gives well-planned bids a chance of winning, breaking the upwards spiral of prices that have kept Hong Kong as the world’s most expensive urban centre to live and work in.

“The system is likely to influence the result of the tender, as some bidders have invested significantly to come up with outstanding designs that include innovative ideas and technical [content],” surveyor said.

Site 3 at Connaught Place is valued between HK$22,980 and HK$34,000 per square foot. On a square-footage basis, Henderson’s 2017 purchase of the Murray Road car park for HK$23.28 billion translated to a record HK$50,064 per square foot.

Hong Kong’s Lands Department will announce the winning bid on, or before November 12, according to a spokesperson, adding that six bids were received.

Sun Hung Kai, capitalised at HK$346 billion, is the record holder of the most expensive plot of land ever sold in Hong Kong. The developer paid HK$42.23 billion, or HK$13,345 per square foot in November 2919 for a parcel of land earmarked for office-retail use on top of the West Kowloon high-speed railway terminus on Austin Road.

Five months after winning the bid, Sun Hung Kai and controlling shareholder Kwok family, sold 30 per cent of the office component of the project for HK$11.27 billion to China’s largest insurer Ping An Insurance Group, keeping all of the retail portion. SHKP owns half the offices, Ping An owns 30 per cent while the Kwok Family Companies own the remaining 20 per cent.

英超市縮業務 轉租觀塘海濱匯


疫情下甲廈租務新需求弱,成交多來自搬遷或收縮規模個案。觀塘海濱匯錄兩宗租務,其中英國超市租用2萬平方呎樓面,屬縮減業務,呎租約26元,亦較高峰回調兩成。

市場消息指,觀塘海濱匯錄兩宗租務成交,其中9樓一單位,面積約2萬平方呎,以每平方呎約26元租出。該廈於2019年落成,屬全海景辦公室,亦獲多個跨國企業租用,高峰期呎租達35元以上,現已回調約兩成。據悉,新租客為英國超市Sainsbury's,該品牌原租用同區國際貿易中心低層全層,涉及約3.6萬平方呎,是次同區搬遷屬縮減業務,可節省租金開支。

新傳媒集團 租同層3.6萬呎

該廈另一宗租務來自同層,涉及約3.6萬平方呎樓面,以每平方呎約26元租出,租客為新傳媒集團。據悉,該集團原使用觀塘鴻圖道82號新傳媒集團中心,物業由英皇持有。今年4月英皇以以5.08億元沽出物業,總樓面面積約8.95萬平方呎,呎價約5,676元,由外資黑石基金購入,並打算把物業轉作迷你倉業務,故集團需尋找新辦公室,現租用海濱匯樓面。

疫情下各國仍採入境限制措施,跨國企業暫緩擴充,加上有需要控制成本,故甲廈新租務成交甚少,絕大部分來自同區搬遷,或縮減業務。消息指,觀塘國際貿易中心低層全層,面積約3.6萬平方呎,以每平方呎約30元租出。據悉,新租客為Farfetch網購平台,包括女士名牌服裝、首飾等,而公司原租用黃竹坑物業,如今整合業務加上提升寫字樓級數,搬至觀塘區。

香港鑽石會大廈 呎價30215

商廈買賣方面,消息指,香港鑽石會大廈低層,面積約4,137平方呎,以約1,250萬元成交,呎價約30,215元。另代理表示,有業主放租觀塘鴻圖道83號東瀛遊廣場極高層全層連三個車位,面積約10,875平方呎,意向租金約25萬元,每平方呎租約23元。

港島區甲廈租務上,中環中環中心極高層01室,面積約2,161平方呎,以每月約16.8萬元租出,呎租約78元,屬近期該廈較理想租金水平。另金鐘統一中心中層01室,面積約2,576平方呎,以每呎約35元租出。

Pavilia Farm III rakes in $2.7b amid buying frenzy

Hong Kong's residential property market remained robust over the weekend as homebuyers snapped up nearly all flats put on sale at The Pavilia Farm phase three in Tai Wai yesterday.

New World Development (0017) collected about HK$2.7 billion after selling 169 out of 173 flats on offer at the third phase of The Pavilia Farm above Tai Wai Station, with one buyer forking out HK$54 million for three flats.

NWD had received about 30,500 registrations of intent from potential buyers for the 173 flats, making them 175 times oversubscribed, and the highest number of registrations since 1997.

The 173 flats include 170 flats in the fourth price list and three flats that were given up by previous buyers.

The 170 flats in the fourth price list were offered at an average price of HK$24,858 per sq ft after a maximum 20 percent discount is applied, 24 percent higher than the first price list.

NWD had recorded three cases of forfeited deposits totaling around HK$1.38 million over three flats at the third phase. The three flats were offered at between HK$7.91 million and HK$11.84 million. The preliminary deposits are equivalent to 5 percent of the purchase prices.

In the secondary market, an property agency reported 16 secondary deals at 10 blue-chip housing estates over the past weekend, down by 20 percent week-on-week.

Among the deals, a 717-sq-ft flat at Mei Foo Sun Chuen in Lai Chi Kok changed hands for HK$10.53 million, or HK$14,686 per sq ft.

The seller will gain HK$4.98 million after holding the property for 11 years.

Meanwhile, the full opening of the Tuen Ma Line on June 27 is propping up transactions in Kowloon City District.

A 478-sq-ft flat at 18 Farm Road in To Kwa Wan fetched HK$9.8 million, or HK$20,502 per sq ft, about 10 percent higher than the bank valuation. The seller bought the flat for HK$4.25 million in 2010 and will gain HK$5.55 million. The seller decided to sell the flat as the Tuen Ma Line is to launch in full at the end of June, according to the property agency.

Hong Kong property stocks enjoy value revival as they hitch ride on economic rebound with foreign funds on the prowl

The Hang Seng property index has returned 12.8 per cent this year, outperforming the local market’s blue-chip benchmark

Analysts are bullish on the prospects of developers with shopping malls in their portfolio as latest e-voucher scheme seen propelling retail sales

Hong Kong property stocks are enjoying a value revival as investors pay the highest price for their underlying assets in more than a decade. Strong response to new residential projects, more spending vouchers, and a return of foreign funds could fuel that momentum.

The price-to-book ratio of Hang Seng Property Index members has risen to 1.8 times this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, a level not seen since they averaged two times in 2009. In pandemic-stricken 2020, they slumped to a four-year low of 0.7 times.

Analysts at DBS Bank and Goldman Sachs are upbeat about the market outlook, saying efforts to revive consumption will translate into higher stock prices. The Blackstone Group’s HK$23.7 billion (US$3.05 billion) bid for Soho China also signalled cash-laden funds are on the prowl for bargains.

“The property market remains strong with large amounts of liquidity chasing assets like real estate,” said Raymond Cheng, head of Hong Kong and China research at CGS-CIMB Securities. “There is still room for Hong Kong property stocks [to appreciate], particularly for developers with a large presence in the residential sector.”

Hong Kong’s economy is on the mend, recovering from several quarters of recession brought on by the social unrest and the pandemic. The city’s economy expanded by 7.9 per cent in the first quarter, the most in 11 years, while new home sales are rising at the fastest pace in two years.

Measures to support domestic consumption, such as the latest round of e-voucher scheme, has brightened the outlook for retail sales, which rebounded 12.1 per cent year on year in April. This bodes well for share prices of developers with shopping malls in their portfolio, DBS said.

“The upside has not been completely priced in,” said Jeff Yau Cheuk-man, property sector analyst at DBS Bank (Hong Kong). The situation in Hong Kong continues to improve and investors are showing a renewed interest in this sector, he added.

The Hang Seng Property Index has returned 12.8 per cent this year, outperforming the broader Hang Seng Index, which has gained 7.4 per cent. If annualised, the gauge could record its best year since 2017, according to Bloomberg data. In the US, the real-estate services subsector of the S&P 500 Index has risen 37.7 per cent this year, compared to a 11.7 per cent increase in the main gauge.

Hong Kong’s e-voucher scheme, designed to boost local spending and accelerate the recovery, will offer every adult Hong Kong resident HK$5,000 in spending vouchers, benefiting 7.2 million people. The registration for the scheme is set to begin in July.

Hysan Development, the biggest landlord in Causeway Bay and operator of the Hysan Place and Lee Theatre shopping centres, would particularly benefit from the consumption boost, Yau said. Retail properties made up 30 per cent of its 4.5 million sq ft of portfolio at end-2020.

The stock has risen 5.3 per cent this year to HK$29.95. DBS Bank has a buy rating with a target price of HK$35.80, representing a 19.5 per cent upside. Yau said that the worst is probably over for the retail sector, which means leasing incomes are due for a rebound.

Sun Hung Kai Properties has risen 19.7 per cent this year to HK$119.70. The developer has 12 million sq ft of retail space across Hong Kong, including IFC Mall in Central and New Town Plaza in Sha Tin. Goldman has a buy rating and a target price of HK$151.

The strong performance of Hong Kong developers this year has been driven by a notable pickup in property sales and prices, and low interest rates, Goldman analysts led by Gurpreet Singh Sahi wrote in a report earlier this month.

“We expect this outperformance to continue as they are in the early stages of a positive inflection, with improving earnings driven by rising transactions in the Hong Kong residential market, improving property price outlook, and retail sales recovering,” the US bank said.

New residential project launches by the city’s biggest developers this year have received strong response from investors. New World Development has been a stand-out, selling all batches at

The Pavilia Farm project atop the Tai Wai MTR station.

New World Development, which also operates the K11 Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, has soared 11.5 per cent this year to HK$40.25. Goldman Sachs and CGS-CIMB Securities are bullish on the stock, giving the stock a 31 to 39 per cent upside based on their price targets.

MTR Corp says Central harbourfront site bid did not involve government board members to avoid conflict of interest

MTR joined Wharf REIC and Chinachem Group consortium to bid for the prime Central harbourfront site

Board members with conflict of interest were excused from the part of the meeting at which the project was discussed and the decision to submit a bid was taken

Government board members were absent from meetings related to the discussion and decision to bid for a prime site in Central, the MTR Corp said to allay public concerns about conflict of interest.

The rail operator and property developer, in which the Hong Kong government holds a 75 per cent stake, issued a statement in response to media queries over potential conflict of interest after it said it had taken part in the government land tender for the New Central Harbourfront Commercial Site 3. The decision to bid was based on purely commercial consideration, it added.

It was the first time since the MTR’s formation in 1975 that the company had taken part in a government land bid. It formed a consortium with Wharf Real Estate Investment Company, a unit of the Woo family’s Wheelock and Company, and Chinachem Group, to submit a bid for the plot.

“When the decision to submit a bid for the project was deliberated by the MTR’s board of directors, those board members who had an actual or potential conflict of interest in the project (including all government board members) did not receive the relevant board papers and were excused from the part of the meeting at which the project was discussed and the decision to submit a bid was taken,” the MTR said on Saturday.

The site, which can yield 1.61 million sq ft of gross floor area, has been valued at between HK$37 billion and HK$55 billion (US$7.1 billion). It is likely to set a record as the most expensive in the city’s history, according to property consultants.

MTR said that as this was a landmark project located in Central, next to Two International Finance Centre (IFC2) which was developed and managed by the company, “it will bring synergies to the company’s existing business and further reflect the MTR’s community development experience in Hong Kong.”

MTR, which owns the land, jointly developed the IFC2 as part of a consortium led by Sun Hung Kai Properties and Henderson Land Development.

MTR said that its bid partners Wharf REIC and Chinachem Group have their own strengths and bring synergies to the project’s development and management.

MTR’s board members include Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Christopher Hui Ching-yu, Secretary for Transport and Housing Frank Chan Fan, Commissioner for Transport Rosanna Law Shuk-pui and Permanent Secretary for Development (Works) Lam Sai-hung.

Under the government’s “two envelope” approach for the sale of the Central harbourfront site, submitted bids will be weighed equally for design and price.

The 516,316 sq ft plot that includes the General Post Office has attracted six bids from some of Hong Kong developers owned by the city’s wealthiest families.

Other bidders include Sun Hung Kai Properties, Hong Kong’s largest developer by market value and controlled by Kwok families. CK Asset (Holdings), one of the two flagship companies owned by Hong Kong’s richest tycoon Li Ka-shing. Henderson Land, founded by the second-richest tycoon Lee Shau-kee is also taking part. Sino Land, controlled by the family of Robert Ng Chee Siong, submitted a joint bid with Great Eagle Holdings of the Lo family, as well as the Chinese state-owned enterprise China Merchants Group.

New World’s Pavilia Farm III flats snapped up for a third straight week amid bullish buying sentiment

169 out of 173 units at New World Development’s The Pavilia Farm III above Tai Wai MTR station were sold by the day’s close at 8pm

The average price of flats in the third phase that went on sale on Sunday were nearly 25 per cent higher than the launch price announced a month ago

Hong Kong’s home buying frenzy shows no sign of abating, with investors on Sunday snapping up nearly all units put on sale at a large residential project in Tai Wai for a third consecutive week.

169 out of 173 units at The Pavilia Farm III above Tai Wai MTR station were sold by the day’s close at 8pm, the developer New World Development said.

The developer said a record 30,500 prospective buyers had registered for the 173 units, or 176 buyers for each flat. The average price of the latest batch of flats in the project’s third phase has risen 24.3 per cent to HK$24,858 (US$3,850) per square foot from its launch price of HK$19,999 per square foot in late May. The latest price factors in discounts of as much as 20 per cent.

“The sharp rise in registrations is partly driven by Hongkongers who would like to buy ahead of the reopening of the border,” property agent said. “They believe mainland buyers would bid up home prices once they are able to travel to Hong Kong.”

One buyer paid HK$54 million for three units, the largest transaction in the third phase so far.

“Hong Kong buyers have become more optimistic about the city’s economic outlook as more people sign up for vaccinations,” the agent said.

As of Saturday, some 3.18 million people have had at least dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. The city’s flagging inoculation drive has received a boost since late May, after the private sector announced more than

HK$153 million worth of giveaways, such as luxury cars, shopping vouchers and a flat worth HK$10.8 million.

Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs said it expects Hong Kong home prices to rise up to 5 per cent this year.

“Given high property prices, very low interest rates but an improving economy, we expect gradual property price increases in line with household income growth for the residential market,” the US investment bank said in a June 6 report led by analyst Gurpreet Singh Sahi. “We believe [an] easing of Covid-19-related border restrictions between Hong Kong and mainland China would benefit the sale of luxury residential flats.”

An property agent was much more optimistic, predicting an increase of as much as 15 per cent. “Home prices were likely to see a breakthrough in the third quarter and this will be followed by an obvious rising trend as Hong Kong’s economy has started to show signs of recovery,” the agent said.

Sales of new homes are likely to climb to 1,800 to 2,000 units in June, the highest since the 2,096 deals in December and considerably higher than the 568 new flat sales in January, when coronavirus cases began to surge, according to forecasts from two different property agencies.

“Hong Kong primary residential market is entering a robust mode,” one of the agencies said.

Home buying sentiment has improved as the number of cases started to taper off and the mass vaccination programme was rolled out in late February. Sales of new homes have stayed above the 1,000 level between February and May.

Pavilia Farm III, due to be completed in June 2023, has 892 units. Developed in three phases, it will have 3,090 units in total.

Prices for the latest batch of flats at Pavilia Farm III start at HK$7.4 million, or HK$18,760 per square foot for a 285 sq ft flat, going up to HK$28.9 million for a 1,022 sq ft unit, after a 20 per cent discount.

New World had sold 833 units at Pavilia Farm III, taking in HK$12.1 billion since the launch of the first round of sales on June 5, said Akan Wong, general manager of sales and marketing at the developer. The company has offered another 46 units for tender whose results will be announced later.

Wong said the firm has sold 2,936 units in the three phases since the project was launched last October, pulled in sales of HK$36 billion.

六財團入標搶中環地王大發展商主導合資角逐減風險

有力挑戰本港最貴重地王寶座的中環新海濱地皮、於昨日截標,共截收6份標書,入標財團以本地大型發展商為主,因項目投資金額龐大,不少財團以合組形式減低發展風險。消息人士指,其中九倉置業就夥拍華懋及港鐵合作競逐。

中環商業地王於昨日截標,據地政總署發言人表示,共截收6份標書。是次入標財團以本地大型發展商為主,包括長實、新地、恒基、九倉置業、華懋,信和則夥拍招商局置地及鷹君競投。

市場人士透露,中環大地主置地集團亦有入標,本報昨日就有關消息向置地查詢,該集團回應指,不會對該項目作出評論。

梁志堅:審視時間長做法合理

恒基發言人表示,該集團以獨資形式入標競投;九倉置業表示,集團以財團組合入標,惟現階段未能公布財團合組資料。華懋集團指出,該集團以合組財團形式競投,惟現階段未能公布財團資料。消息人士指,九倉置業就夥拍華懋及港鐵入標。

九倉置業系內會德豐地產主席梁志堅表示,該項目反應不俗,對市場具正面作用,發展商之間競爭在所難免,料各大財團「各自計數」出價,該項目最大優點為位處中環海濱區,希望可成功奪地,他亦指,該項目投資金額籠大,並着重審視設計,故項目最遲於今年11月才公布招標結果,亦屬合理做法。

九倉夥華懋及港鐵入標

是次項目採「雙信封」形式招標,除着重出價外,亦要評定其設計方案,兩者比重各佔50%,就算標價最高,惟設計未能配合整體規劃,都未必可成功投得,消息指,部分發展商已搜羅全世界出名的建築師為地皮作設計,亦有發展商更邀請多達一家建築商以上,希望取得最佳方案,以圖脫穎而出。

同時,亦因項目審標書時間較長,賣地章程顯示地皮最遲可於今年11月12日才公布結果,距離截標時間長達5個月。

邀國際知名建築商設計

有測量師指出,項目採「雙信封」形式招標,料流標機會低,每方呎地價約2.3萬至2.5萬,市場估值約370億至400億。另一測量師稱,部分發展商合組形式競投,以減低發展風險,料每呎地價約3.43萬,估值約547億。

「雙信封」招標 同步交設計

中環海濱商業地於昨日截標,該項目採「雙信封」形式招標,其設計方案亦為決勝關鍵,昨日於佐敦永安九龍中心的遞交資料現場,錄得多家財團遞交設計模型。從外型所現,模型擺放在及腰的大型箱子中,面積龐大。

設計方案佔五成比重

中環海濱商業地為市場近期焦點所在,該項目截標形式有別於以往做法,其中,出價金額標書截標地點為金鐘政府總部,惟項目設計模型則設於佐敦永安九龍中心。就本報昨日於現場所見,該項目錄至少兩組財團遞交設計模型,更需要動用6位男士小心翼翼一起運送。

該商業地採「雙信封」形式,除着重出價外,亦要評定其設計方案,兩者比重各佔50%,故此就算標價最高,惟設計未能配合整體規劃,都未必可成功投得。

Hong Kong’s homebuying frenzy reaches down to small flats, as customers snap up Vanke’s Vau Residence in Ho Man Tin

Vanke Holdings (Hong Kong) sold 54 units, or 98 per cent of the 55 flats on offer at the Vau Residence project in Ho Man Tin as of 8pm, agents said

The developer received 530 bids for the offer, or up to nine buyers vying for each available flat, according to a spokesperson

Hong Kong homebuyers returned in droves to snap up new flats in Ho Man Tin on Saturday, showing confidence in the city’s property market amid the improving local coronavirus situation and early signs of economic recovery.

Vanke Holdings (Hong Kong), a unit of China’s third-largest developer China Vanke, sold 54 of the 55 units on offer at its Vau Residence project in Ho Man Tin as of 8pm, agents said, adding that they expect the remaining two units to sell out by the end of the day.

Around 530 bids were received for the units, or up to nine buyers vying for each available flat, according to a spokesperson.

“Homebuyers are showing more confidence in the property market,” property agent said. “The coronavirus situation in the city has improved and we’re seeing more days without any new local infections. We’re also seeing early signs of an economic recovery. As the vaccination rate picks up, there are hopes that the border between mainland China and Hong Kong will reopen soon.”

Prospective homebuyers are also rushing to buy new flats as they are worried that home prices may increase over the coming months, the agent added. There is growing optimism that Hong Kong home prices will climb further this year as the city’s economy shows further signs of recovery.

Earlier this month, US investment bank Goldman Sachs said it expected a 5 per cent rise in home prices this year, while property agent has forecast a 15 per cent increase. Hong Kong’s economy expanded 7.9 per cent in the first three months of the year, the fastest quarterly pace in 11 years, beating economists’ forecasts and bolstering investors’ confidence in the city’s property market.

The first batch of Vau Residence flats on offer consisted of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, ranging from 209 square feet to 388 sq ft (36 square metres) and priced from HK$4.99 million to HK$9.46 million (US$1.22 million), after discounts of up to 16 per cent.

The average price was HK$24,647 per square foot, about 3 per cent more than the flats at Seven Victory Avenue, a two-year-old development within walking distance of Vau Residence. The units at Seven Victory Avenue were selling for HK$23,820 per square foot, according to listings on property agency’s website.

Vanke will also offer a cash reward of HK$28,000 to each of the first 50 Vau Residence buyers who have received their Covid-19 vaccinations before August 31, joining in the campaign among property developers and Hong Kong’s conglomerates to help boost the city’s vaccination rate. Vanke said it expects the cash reward to cost it about HK$1.4 million in total.

The success at Vau Residence followed two successive sell-out weekends at New World Development’s The Pavilia Farm III residential complex in Tai Wai. The developer has sold 2,769 out of a total of 3,090 apartments in the entire project, for a total haul of HK$33.1 billion.

Another 173 units of the latest batch of apartments go on sale on Sunday, for which New World has received 30,500 bids, translating to 176 buyers bidding for every unit.

中環甲廈租賃轉活 帶動空置率回落


近半年中區甲廈空置走勢漸見平穩,市場更錄得數宗矚目中環甲廈租賃個案。代理資料顯示,5月份中環區甲廈空置率約7.35%,按月微升。

據代理資料顯示,5月份中環區甲級商廈空置率錄得約7.35%,比4月輕微上升0.15個百分點;而中環區商廈空置率自今年1月起走勢趨穩,連續第7個月維持於7%水平,反映受疫情影響下,中環區商廈需求穩定,加上部分商廈租務安排更見靈活,業主提供較長免租期及裝修優惠,吸引不少企業進駐及續租,減低「去中環化」影響;加上部分金融及營銷相關行業及大型品牌企業等仍需要於中環營運據點,因而去中環化的影響相對輕微,亦支撑中環區商廈空置率及租金走勢趨穩定。

個別企業 趁租跌進駐

代理表示,近期中環區屢傳出矚目寫字樓租賃個案,有國際企業選擇於此時重返中環,亦有部分租客搬遷升級辦公室都繼續選擇中環區,反映企業對中環寫字樓仍然看高一綫,肯定其質素配套及知名度。全球財經資訊及數據供應商標準普爾,於今年4月由九龍站環球貿易廣場 ICC 遷至中環交易廣場三座3樓及4樓全層作整合業務,涉及總面積約2.2萬平方呎。而中環亦錄得不少同區搬遷個案,包括中國人壽富蘭克林資產管理原租用中環長江集團中心,新近轉租同區交易廣場一座中高層全層,面積約1.3萬平方呎,市傳成交呎租約120元。

該代理續稱,中環區作為本港核心商業區中的核心,於區內設立辦公室甚有象徵品牌地位概念。惟早年區內寫字樓租金不斷上升,令部分企業租客把個別部門喬遷至他區以節省營運成本。近半年隨着業主在租務安排上更具彈性,「去中環化」趨勢有所放緩,中環甲廈空置情況已逐漸平穩,加上近月區內陸續錄得矚目租務成交,反映中環甲廈仍具一定支持度。隨着中環區商廈租金有所調整,更是個別企業進駐良機,相信隨着疫苗接種及通關事宜有新進展,料中環甲廈租賃會慢慢轉活躍,帶動空置率穩步走勢,甚至見回落。

尖沙咀星光行高層戶 4269萬放售

尖沙咀星光行高層單位以交吉放售,意向價約4,269萬元。

代理表示,尖沙咀梳士巴利道3號星光行高層17至18室,面積約2,189平方呎,現以約4,269萬元放售,折合呎價約1.95萬元,物業即將於7月交吉。代理稱,單位屬星光行高層單位之餘,又位處星光行靠近維港海旁的方向,因此享有海景,該單位貼近電梯大堂,質素優越。

該代理續指,單位更會連全寫字樓裝修出售,買家可即買即用,節省裝修成本及時間,不論自用或投資都極其合適。

連寫字樓裝修 節省成本

該代理續稱,由於星光行樓面呈長方形狀,而靠近海旁及靠近廣東道方向的單位景觀不一,因此大廈不同坐向的單位造價有明顯差別。資料顯示,該廈對上一宗高層海景戶買賣成交已要追溯至2017年底,該單位為高層19室,面積約715平方呎,成交呎價約1.86萬元;而星光行於2019年高峰期成交呎價曾高達約2.11萬元。

灣仔 W Square 位置佳交通便 合中小企

灣仔 W Square 位處軒尼詩道,地點便利,而單位間隔四正實用,質素甚為理想,適合中小型企業使用。

灣仔 W Square 位處軒尼詩道,為灣仔寫字樓及飲食地帶的集中地,交通亦坐落於港鐵灣仔及銅鑼灣站之間,步行至該廈只須約10分鐘,附近亦有多條巴士綫及電車可到達,交通方便。值得一提,物業附近有餐廳及超市,對上班一族絕對便捷。

飲食配套上,大廈設有多層舖位如中菜館、西餐廳以及快餐店,上班一族亦可到附近軒尼詩道、謝斐道及駱克道一帶,有多間茶餐廳可供選擇,或可步行至登龍街等銅鑼灣地段,食肆林立。

W Square 集寫字樓及飲食於一身,大廈於1978年落成,物業只設有軒尼詩道入口,該廈有分為舖位及寫字樓用途。為了分間人流,大堂入口轉右為飲食樓層的電梯,共設有2部電梯,而從門口直入為寫字樓大堂,共設有3部電梯,讓繁忙時段可分流客人,不用電梯大堂過分擠迫,而大廈入口光綫充足,整體觀感仍勝同區大廈。

全層面積約5093 間隔四正

物業樓高26層,由地庫至6樓為飲食樓層,地下共設2個地舖,分別為2,000及2,400平方呎,1至3樓每層約7,388平方呎,4樓面積約5,511平方呎。現時飲食樓層有大家樂、留家廚房、韓國菜阿里朗等租用。該廈沒有停車場,駕車人士可使用鄰近的北海中心集成中心停車場。

W Square 比鄰北海中心英皇集團中心中國網絡中心集成中心等商業大廈。景觀方面上,物業單位望向「鵝頸橋」及軒尼詩道一帶商廈,主要以樓景為主,惟整體景觀仍開揚舒適。此外,該廈前身為乙廈,發展商購入後進行大翻新,不論外形或單位均進行升級,設備稱得上是準甲廈質素,比起同地段一帶的大廈質素明顯較高。

物業前身為東亞銀行灣仔大廈,於1978年落成,05年時銀行委託測量師行標售物業,由永泰亞洲以5.4億元購入,其後集團以2億元翻新。2018年2月,本地老牌家族永倫集團以28.48億元向永泰地產購入 W Square 全幢商廈,持有作收租。

全幢物業靈活度高 引財團垂青

投資市場氣氛轉好,近日市場連錄數宗全幢物業交投。事實上,全幢物業靈活度高,可作收租、增值或重建,故引來財團垂青。

整體工商舖投資市場明顯轉好,大手交投亦有所增加,而全幢物業成財團追捧對象。商廈方面,中環荷李活道C Wisdom Centre全幢商廈4.3億元易手。物業樓高26層,地下設舖位,地下至4樓每面積約1,200至1,300平方呎,而6至23樓每層面積約957平方呎,屬中環迷你商廈,一梯一伙設計。物業總樓面約23,889平方呎,現時出租率百分百,平均呎租約35元,每月租金收入逾80萬元。

據了解,早前業主以約4.8億元放售,終以約4.3億元易手,減價約1成,呎價約1.8萬元,回報率約2.2厘。新買家料為投資者,購入作收租。

上海街商住大廈 約1.83億易手

除了商廈外,全幢商住物業亦成收購對象。「舖王」鄧成波家族持有的油麻地上海街339至345號全幢,以約1.83億易手,物業1幢9層高商住大廈,地盤面積約2,443平方呎,地下設有4個商舖,總面積約2,040平方呎,1至8樓為住宅,合共提供32伙,總樓面約13,592平方呎,項目每月租金以入約59.1萬元。

據了解,業主早前曾放售物業,年初亦獲財團以逾2億元洽購,惟最終未達成協議,如今以1.83億元沽出。原業主於2016年以1.95億購入,持貨5年帳面蝕讓約1,120萬。

今年全幢工廈成熱門,近日再有成交個案。粉嶺安樂門街38號的有成行物流中心全幢,以2.17億元沽出,總樓面約46,278平方呎,平均呎價約4,689元。原業主為廣大食品有限公司,早於2001年以2,000萬元買入上址,持貨20年,是次轉手帳面獲利1.97億元,物業大幅升值近10倍。

有成行辦館有限公司早於1973年創立,主要業務涵蓋家居用品、生活必需品、酒精飲品及食品的出入口、零售、批發及分銷等。公司代理的產品包括日清食品旗下的合味道、出前一丁等杯麵及即食麵、紅圈牌罐頭等。

分析指,隨着第四波疫情完結,整體投資氣氛即轉好,工商舖租售價經過一輪調整後,漸吸引財團入市。全幢物業的優點是靈活度高,既可收租,亦可進行增值,日後轉售或進行拆售。此外,全幢工廈既可自用,亦可進行活化及重建。在市場憧憬下半年市況復甦下,全幢物業料續受捧,相信再有全幢大手成交出現。

鴨脷洲大街兩舊樓 財團4.5億併購

料集齊100%業權 個別呎價高見2.6萬

港島南區多個新盤有價有市,大大增加財團併購同區舊樓的意慾。據了解,鴨脷洲大街兩幢舊樓獲財團併購,收購金額約4.5億元,個別單位收購呎價高見2.6萬元。

鴨脷洲大街34至36號及惠風街5至9號,兩幢約6層高的舊樓,其中前者樓齡約54年。土地註冊處資料顯示,項目日前錄得5宗成交登記,每宗成交金額1,001萬至1,046.5萬元,以每個單位實用面積400平方呎計,財團收購呎價高見2.6萬元。另外惠風街5至9號,則錄得17宗成交登記,涉資約1.7億元。

宏安地產收購呼聲高

據了解,兩幅舊樓地盤面積約4,197平方呎,現為住宅 (甲類) 2用地,以重建地積比率9倍計,可重建樓面面積約37,773平方呎。有指財團已經集齊100%業權,共涉資約4.5億元,以可重建樓面計,收樓呎價約1.2萬元。

其中一間負責收購的公司為,樂賢有限公司,公司董事李名揚。資料顯示,李名揚早前曾負責收購黃大仙天虹之家舊樓,有指天虹之家背後財團為宏安地產  (01243) 或相關人士,故是次收購鴨脷洲大街舊樓的財團以宏安地產呼聲最高。

一向從事舊樓併購的領航集團主席高兆霆指出,鴨脷洲一帶舊樓近年成為發展商收購對象,從位置上看,上述鴨脷洲大街兩幢舊距離港鐵站不遠,加上可望全海景,極具重建價值,以樓面呎價計,屬於市價水平。

事實上,同區多個重建項目有價有市,例如最新推售中的逸南,至今累售55個單位,最高成交呎價約28,725元。

天價購山頂車位內地隱形富豪曝光17個成交造價冠全球

市況向好下,山頂一個超級豪盤連錄天價車位成交,最高造價達一千一百八十八萬多元,貴絕全球,而買家身分近日亦逐一曝光,本報連日追蹤,至今共有十七個車位註冊成交,除獲本港富豪選購外,當中逾一半為內地隱形富豪以高價搶奪。地產組記者:李偉航

山頂豪盤MOUNT NICHOLSON,早前發展商九倉及南豐以招標形式推出該豪宅車位,最低標價已由九百萬起,發展商指,至今沽出逾三十個車位。而從成交車位價,售價動輒千萬元,令市場嘩然,買家身分逐步曝光,目前已有十七個車位註冊成交,售價由九百萬起,最高價為一千一百八十八萬八千元,貴絕全球。

最高造價每個達1188.8

該天價車位由德永佳執行董事潘浩德購入,潘氏共斥約三千五百六十六萬四千元,掃入該盤三個車位,每個成交價為一千一百八十八萬八千元。除潘浩德外,德永佳前執行副主席潘機澤、大鴻輝主席梁紹鴻,亦紛購入該盤車位,至於已故賭王何鴻燊四太梁安琪,亦表明已購入車位,但其成交卻尚未註冊。

目前該豪盤已有十七個車位註冊成交,除上述本地富豪外,就有多達九個為內地隱形富豪購入,佔總數逾一半。據土地註冊處資料,該盤六十二、六十三及六十五號車位,於上月底各以九百一十六萬成交,合共斥資逾二千七百四十八萬購入,買家為林忠敏 (LIN ZHONGMIN)。

林忠敏為內地發展商頤安集團董事長,並於一八年時,共斥逾十一億購入該盤十二樓C及D室,面積共八千八百二十一方呎,平均呎價為十三萬二千元,曾創亞洲分層戶新高紀錄,但該紀錄目前已被中半山豪盤21 BORRETT ROAD,於今年二月以每呎十三萬六千元打破。

其餘內地隱形富豪,包括內地雲鋒基金創辦人及主席虞鋒,就斥資逾二千八百五十萬,連購該豪盤五十九、六十及六十一號車位,每個車位售價約九百五十萬;內地仁東控股董事長霍東,則以九百三十萬購入九十二號車位,

頤安林忠敏2748萬掃三車位

內地豪客邱明靜則以一千零一十一萬購入一號車位,而邱氏於樓市亦頗活躍,上月亦斥資共二億四千萬連環購入黃竹坑新盤晉環九伙。至於另一內地豪客倪鶴桐則以九百萬購入八號車位。

有測量師表示,由於不少內地富豪須經常往返中港兩地,自然需要在本港購置豪宅作自住,而且該山頂豪盤車位供應有限,雖然售價動輒千萬元,但因本身經濟實力雄厚,而且具自用需要,亦願意一擲金千購入。

代理指出,山頂豪盤單位售價「億億聲」,若以比例計,該盤車位造價約千萬元,實屬合理水平,山頂交通配套遠較市區遜色,亦直接推動車位售價「水漲船高」。

One Victoria releases sales brochure

China Overseas Land & Investment (0688) has released the sales brochure for its One Victoria project in Kai Tak.

The flats range in size from 329 square feet to 1,793 sq ft.

Comprising three towers, One Victoria offers 1,059 homes ranging from one- to four-bedroom flats. More than half of the flats are two-bedroom units, 23 percent are one-bedroom while another 23 percent are three-bedroom units. There are only 10 four-bedroom units.

The developer will open a show flat and put out the price list this week with sales expected to open next month. The handover date will be March 31, 2023.

In the secondary market, the Tang Shing-bor family sold a whole floor in Tsun Win Factory Building for HK$48 million in Kwun Tong.

The family had bought the 9,327-sq-ft property for HK$30.6 million.-

In another deal, a 538-sq-ft unit at Manhattan Hill in Lai Chi Kok was sold for HK$11.9 million.

The vendor who bought the flat for HK$4.85 million in 2008, said he will seek real estate opportunities for rental income.

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Property Managers has urged the local firms to introduce more elderly care services to add value.

President Lobo Fung criticized the industry as being too conservative and said it must change to remain competitive, as more and more mainland companies have now entered Hong Kong's to join the property management sector.

BitMEX in talks to rent more space at Hong Kong’s costliest offices as it goes on hiring spree in cryptocurrency boom

Cryptocurrency exchange BitMEX is seeking more talent and expanding its pricey office space at Cheung Kong Center in Central, sources say

Expansion comes as Hong Kong tightens licensing regime and oversight on cryptocurrency exchanges amid rising fraud and cyber crimes

BitMEX, which operates a cryptocurrency derivatives exchange out of the priciest office tower in Hong Kong, is embarking on a hiring spree and expanding its floor space in a show of confidence in the city, even as the industry faces heightened regulatory scrutiny.

The company, which claims to handle US$1.7 billion of transactions per day, is exploring the option of leasing additional space equivalent to half a floor, at Cheung Kong Center from CK Asset Holdings, according to several people familiar with the matter. The three-year lease of BitMEX’s 20,000 square feet (1,858 square metres) of space on the 45th floor of the tower, costing about US$600,000 per month, expires later this year, they said.

“We have plans to grow from a crypto-derivatives exchange platform by expanding our business lines to include spot, brokerage, custody, and other capabilities in certain markets in the future,” a spokesman of 100X Group, the ultimate owner of BitMEX, said in an email reply to the Post, declining to comment specifically about its real estate plan. CK Asset declined to comment.

The company is hiring engineers, a head of financial crime compliance, derivative structurers and other supporting roles in Hong Kong, according to its website. Its operations in Central supports BitMEX’s information technology and other back-office functions such as human resources, compliance and finance.

Its expansion comes at a time when Hong Kong is tightening its scrutiny to stem money laundering terrorism financing, and protect investors from risky investment products. BitMEX ranked as the world’s top crypto exchange after its launch in 2014, creating a buzz with up to 100-times leverage for perpetual bitcoin/US dollar contracts.

The Hong Kong government hopes to introduce an amendment bill during its 2021/22 legislative session, requiring all exchange operators to be licensed by the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). Non-compliant and unlicensed activities will attract jail terms and fines, according to its proposal.

The price of bitcoin has surged by almost 600-fold in the past 12 months to a record US$63,410 on April 15 before retracing by 48 per cent, changing hands at about US$33,000 in recent trading.

With about a dozen crypto exchanges operating offices in the financial hub, the local government is keen to foster innovation in digital assets, which has grown in size to US$1.8 trillion. Still, increasing reports of cybercrime, fraud coupled with a renewed zeal by mainland China’s government to crack down on cryptocurrencies has given the industry cause for caution.

Gatecoin, among the first batch of exchanges, fell into liquidation in 2019. OKEX suspended withdrawals by customers in October after its founder Xu Mingxing, who reportedly held the private keys to clients’ assets, failed to show up for work.

The spokesman of the 100x Group said it is “considering what licensing opportunities are available to us in various jurisdictions and closely monitoring developments in regulation.”

HDR Global, a member of the group and the parent of BitMEX, is registered in the Republic of Seychelles as an “international business company” and not a licensed entity subject to supervision. HDR Global’s website warns investors that the BitMEX platform is not available to users in Hong Kong.

“International business companies” that are engaged in cryptocurrency activities “are not licensed or authorised to conduct such activities in the Seychelles or anywhere else in the world,” Zenabe Daman, deputy chief executive of the island country’s Financial Services Authority, said in an email to the Post.

Seychelles is working on a legal framework that would require these companies that are engaged in virtual assets to apply for virtual assets service providers licensing or registration, Daman said. It expects to pass a law on this by year end, she added.

九龍甲廈空置降 5月見12.6%


九龍區甲廈呎租叫價較具競爭力,個別企業進駐。據代理統計,5月份九龍區整體甲級商廈空置率錄得約12.61%,比4月份減少0.49個百分點,而相比去年同期則見輕微反彈,按年遞增1.12個百分點。

觀塘空置率 跌1.44百分點

統計4區空置情況,在尖沙咀、旺角、九龍灣及觀塘中,以觀塘表現最突出,最新甲廈空置率為12.83%,比上月下跌1.44個百分點。

代理表示,觀塘甲廈供應充足令空置率長期維持於雙位數字水平,但租金比尖沙咀及旺角一帶商廈相對相宜,且個別業主叫價有所下調,因此近期亦吸引不少租客首選進駐。如觀塘萬兆豐中心高層D室,面積約1,915平方呎,新近以呎租約24元租出,對比舊呎租約33元,減低約27%。

至於比鄰的九龍灣表現則較平穩,5月份區內甲廈空置率錄得約21.13%,按月微升0.02個百分點。而旺角甲廈空置情況也有不俗改善,由4月約9.05%,回落至最新約7.98%,跌幅約1.07個百分點。

觀塘陸續變天 舊樓重建前景看俏

萬科香港購定富街舊樓9成業權 涉逾5億

隨着多個大型重建項目落成,加上政府有意將東九龍一帶發展成為第二個核心商業區,觀塘陸續變天,區內舊樓重建價值備受看好,市場消息指萬科香港正收購牛頭角定富街3幢舊樓逾9成業權,涉資逾5億元。

據了解,牛頭角定富街45至63號共3幢6層高的舊樓,樓齡約49至50年,共提供50個住宅單位及10個舖位,住宅單位主要為400平方呎以下中小型單位,二手買賣並不活躍。

市場消息透露,有財團對該批舊樓進行收購,目前已集齊逾9成業權。土地註冊處資料顯,上述舊樓日前錄得2宗舖位買賣登記,成交價均為1,700萬元,其中定勝樓地下3號舖,原業主2015年以225萬元購入,剛以1,700萬售出,6年間勁升近7倍。

新買家為119 Limited,該公司董事為馬偉業、CHOI TAK SHING,前者今年2月透過逸發投資有限公司名義,為萬科香港併購深水埗海壇街舊樓地盤,相信是次出手收購的背後財團為萬科香港。

可建樓面約6.8萬呎

市場消息透露,發展商已收購大部分住宅單位,每伙收購價介乎580萬至630萬元,實用呎價約1.6萬元,直逼麗港城、德福花園等大型屋苑呎價水平。

不過,資料顯示,上述3幅舊樓地盤面積共7,595平方呎,以重建地積比9倍計,可建樓面約68,355平方呎,估計總收購金額逾5億元計,樓面呎價有機會低於8,000元,算是吸引價。

事實上,上述舊樓距離牛頭角站不遠,多年來一直有發展商低調進行收購。土地註冊處資顯示,一家本地大型發展商早於10年前,便透過百輝創富有限公司名義,成功購入多個單位,接近2成業權,惟收購進度緩慢,最終由萬科香港成功收購。

領航集團主席高兆霆指出,市區大面積地盤極為罕有,故發展商對觀塘區睇高一綫,而地盤可重建樓高65米,而且面向全海景,可遠望中上環一帶及紅磡海景。另外,發展商睇好將來租金有上升空間,因為對面是觀塘工商區,將來租盤絕對沒有壓力。

柴灣加快轉型 發展商購工廈重建

受惠於活化工廈政策推動,柴灣工業區轉型加快,有發展商更進駐收購工廈重建,其中興勝創建 (00896) 購入利眾街兩幢工廈申請放寬地積比重建,涉及樓面約24.7萬平方呎。

柴灣區內工業發展分為兩部分,包括在港鐵柴灣站周邊的利眾街、祥利街一帶,以及常安街鄰近的碼頭區,在上世紀70年代陸續有不少工廠大廈建成,發展成為新興工業區。

利眾街4項目 樓面47.3萬呎

當中利眾街一帶的工業區鄰近港鐵柴灣站,範圍約44.7萬平方呎,由31幢工廈組成,大部分屬於老齡工廈,業權亦比較分散,只有5至6幢屬於單一業權,近年則至少有4幢工廈計劃全幢改裝或重建,合共涉及47.3萬平方呎樓面。

以往利眾街一帶工業區轉型比較慢,但近年在活化工廈政策推動之下,以豁免2成樓面作為誘引,吸引發展商進駐收購,加快了區內轉型步伐,連同早前獲批出的工廈活化項目,區內4個發展項目,合共提供約47.3萬平方呎樓面。

德昌廣場重建 增6成樓面

當中,中小型發展商興勝創建,在去年先後以合共近17億元購入區內德昌廣場以及美利倉大廈,並陸續申請進行重建。

其中規模比較大為利眾街14至16號德昌廣場,興勝創建夥拍南豐以約9.48億元購入並合作發展,將原本的11層高工廈,總樓面面積約9.6萬平方呎,申請放寬地積比率由12倍增加20%至14.4倍,以地盤面積約10,515平方呎計算,可重建1幢28層高,非污染工業用途,即新式工廈,總樓面約15.14平萬方呎,較現有樓面多出58%。

另外,一幢位於利眾街18號的美利倉大廈,佔地約6,685平方呎,目前為16層高工廈,於1980年落成,樓齡接近40年,原本於2015年由迷你倉集團以約3.95億元購入作營運,總樓面6.8萬平方呎。該廈同樣在去年由興勝創建以約7.35億元購入,在4年間樓價升86%,並且提出申請放寬地積比率至14.4倍重建,擬興建1幢26層高的新式工廈,作為非污染工業用途,可建樓面約9.6萬平方呎,相較原有樓面6.8萬平方呎,增加4成多樓面。

事實上,上址以「摸貨」形式再度售出,上址於今年5月初以2.17億易手,買家為宏鉅投資有限公司,註冊董事為何智勇,資料顯示,該名投資者早前為羅氏地產購入該廈40伙及一籃子車位,隨即推出市場拆售,單位面積介乎1278方呎至8152方呎,累沽26伙,料套現逾1.4億。

Coronavirus Hong Kong: luxury property awaits Shenzhen border opening for the next leap upwards

Property buyers from mainland China bought 38 per cent of Hong Kong’s luxury homes – each more than HK$100 million – in the first four months.

At two of Hong Kong’s most exclusive addresses, 21 Borrett Road and Mount Nicholson, “new Hongkongers” already make up more than half the owners.

An influx of mainland Chinese buyers into Hong Kong’s super-deluxe developments since early this year could further fuel home prices in the world’s most expensive property market, and the trend will become more obvious once the border open.

Buyers who settled in Hong Kong from mainland China, dubbed “new Hongkongers” unlike locally born residents, have already made their presence felt in the local real estate market. They bought 38 per cent of Hong Kong’s luxury homes – each priced more than HK$100 million (US$13 million) – in the first four months, 2 percentage points more than the whole of 2020, and more than 32.9 per cent in 2019, according to data provided by property agency.

“When the border reopens, we expect mainland Chinese to [return] to snap up residential property,” agent said.

Individual and corporate real estate investors from the mainland had been the lifeblood that had sustained the eye-popping prices of Hong Kong’s property industry in the past decade, from multimillion dollar mansions to some of the world’s most expensive offices in marquee addresses in Central. Their presence in the city, muted since the street protests of 2019, could resume when Hong Kong’s northern border with Shenzhen reopens with the easing of the coronavirus outbreak, allowing business travellers, tourists and investors to return.

New Hongkongers already make up 60 per cent of the owners in two of the city’s most exclusive residential neighbourhoods: CK Asset Holdings’ 21 Borrett Road luxury apartments at the Mid-Levels, as well as Mount Nicholson on The Peak by Wharf Holdings and Nan Fung Development, according to land title searches conducted by South China Morning Post.

Mainland Chinese buyers snapped up four of eight apartments at 21 Borrett Road since February, paying a total of HK$1.3 billion for them, including a buyer named Yin Xi who paid HK$459.4 million for a five-bedroom unit that broke Asia’s price record.

At Mount Nicholson, two daughters of the late casino tycoon Stanley Ho, now find 58 per cent of their neighbours being new Hongkongers. Buyers featuring pinyin names, the romanisation system used in mainland China, bought nine houses and 22 apartments out of the project’s 15 mansions and 38 units for a combined HK$14 billion since their launch in late 2016.

Several of these buyers had also set new price benchmarks. Before Yin’s purchase, the record for the most expensive home was set by Lin Zhongming, chairman of Shenzhen developer AIM Investment Group. Lin liked the project so much that he paid HK$1.16 billion for two adjoining apartments at Mount Nicholson in 2017, paying HK$132,060 per square foot, or HK$560.02 million, for unit 12C and another HK$604.7 million for unit 12D.

“Some of the rich mainland Chinese businessman share one thought: to send their money out of China to park in a safe place,” said Kevin Tsui, an associate professor at the Clemson University’s College of Business in South Carolina, adding that the influx of mainland capital would cause prices to soar in Hong Kong. “That explains why they are willing to pay for a big premium, or even higher taxes, than local residents for property in Hong Kong and overseas.”

China’s government had also been mounting a series of campaigns across the country to tamp down on runaway property prices, which had added to the push for tycoons to diversify their holdings abroad, he said.

“It is likely encouraging individuals whose wealth quickly accumulated after they float their firms in Hong Kong or in the mainland stock market to seek other investment alternatives. Hong Kong property market is one of their favourite options,” he said.

Payments of the buyers’ stamp duty (BSD), a 15 per cent surcharge on the price of property sold to non-permanent residents with less than seven years in Hong Kong, soared last month to HK$913 million, a 23 per cent jump from April, while the number of transactions jumped 84 per cent to 114, according to data provided by the Inland Revenue Department.

“We also noticed a growing number of mainlanders who become Hong Kong permanent residents making property purchases,” agent said.

Hong Kong’s retail landlords consider increasing rent for the first time in two years amid ongoing economic recovery

Retail landlords have started engaging tenants in discussions on rent increases for the upcoming lease renewals, say market observers

Tenants however say that landlords must hold back on the rent increases as they were yet to recover fully from the slowdown

With Hong Kong’s economic recovery gathering pace and domestic consumption improving, retail landlords have started mulling rent increases for the first time since the correction started two years ago in the wake of the social unrest.

While landlords of shopping centres and street shops seem optimistic and expect retailers to receive a boost from mainland tourists following the eventual opening of cross-border travel, tenants, however, remain cautious, with many saying that business is yet to recover from levels before the protests started in mid-2019.

Market observers, however, expect only a nominal increase in rent, noting that a stop to rent concessions by landlords is a good indication rents may be on the way up.

Retail landlords have started engaging tenants in discussions on rent increases for the upcoming lease renewals since Lunar New Year, property agent said. “These new or renewed leases might see a freeze for the first year, followed by a mild increase of around 5 to 10 per cent for the second and third years” amid a predicted recovery for the city’s economy and revival in cross-border tourism, the agent said.

Hong Kong’s economy expanded by 7.9 per cent in the first three months of the year, the biggest quarterly growth in 11 years which also ended six quarters of recession. Given the economy continues to recover from the pandemic, the government expects full-year growth to be at the upper end of the forecast of between 3.5 per cent and 5.5 per cent. Hong Kong’s retail sales have also continued to recover, with retail sales in the first four months of 2021 estimated to have grown 8.5 per cent compared to the same period last year.

Some landlords think that the worst is over, another agent said.

“As retail sales have returned to positive growth, they have had internal discussions to increase the headline rents,” the agent said.

Another agent said that the overall rent level in Hong Kong was currently 30 per cent to 50 per cent lower than the first half of 2019. He said he expects rents of retail properties to fluctuate by less than 5 per cent this year. Link Reit, Asia’s largest real estate investment trust with a portfolio of 9 million sq ft of retail and office space in Hong Kong, said it was optimistic about the overall market.

As the pandemic has stabilised locally and restrictions have eased, the scope for discussions on lease renewals with tenants is much better compared to six months ago as their prospects have improved, George Hongchoy, chief executive of Link Reit, said last week.

But small business owners beg to differ, saying they were worried that landlords were jumping the gun as their operations were yet to stabilise from the disruption brought about by the pandemic.

Among them is Vincent Wong. The owner of a music centre in Tai Kok Tsui said he could be paying higher rents when his lease comes up for renewal in September.

“We had asked for a rent cut but the landlord turned down our proposal. We are now requesting them to freeze the rents for one year, but we have not heard back,” said Wong.

“We lost as much as 50 per cent of students at the beginning of the pandemic. We see students gradually coming back but the business is still at two-thirds of the pre-pandemic level.”

高山企業底價8億 奪豐華工廈


長沙灣豐華工業大廈昨日舉行強拍,由永義國際 (01218) 同系的高山企業 (00616),在無競爭對手下以底價8億元投得,並統一業權。

物業位於長沙灣青山道646、648、648A號,該地段面積9,205方呎,現為1幢7層高工廈,設有四條公共樓梯,至今樓齡約61年,若以地積比率約12倍作重建發展,可建總樓面約11.05萬方呎。以成交8億元計算,每方呎樓面地價即約7,239元。再者,大廈鄰近港鐵荔枝角站,步行前往約2分鐘,具有重建價值。

工廈劏細出售 市場反應佳

根據土地審裁處資料顯示,高山企業於2019年申請強拍時,已持有約90.83%業權,當時未能收購的單位有3個,最新則僅餘下2個單位並未成功收購。發展商早前計劃強拍成功後,將拆卸大廈,並重建為一幢高層現代化工業大廈,以發揮最大用途。

代理稱,不能用申請時估值與拍賣底價作比較,而拍賣底價需考慮重建價值。而且,過去發展商收購工廈,在計算土地價值時較困難,一般地皮規模大,重建價值才會高於原有價值,但政府推出「標準金額」補地價先導計劃,及近年小型工業單位售價理想,均令發展商容易計算項目重建價值。

該代理又指,疫情影響令物流倉庫需求急劇上升,近期流行業主將大型工廈單位劏細出售,市場反應良好;加上政府推出「標準金額」補地價先導計劃,吸引不少發展商申請工廈補地價重建。他又指,目前有數宗強拍申請正在處理,其中一宗已完成聆訊,正等候法庭批出強拍令,預期工廈強拍趨勢會上升。而上半年只有5至6宗新的強拍申請,預期新申請全年只有約10至15宗,較去年減少。

NT record set as Tai Wai flat sells for $44m

New World Development (0017) sold a four-bedroom flat in the third phase of the Pavilia Farm in Tai Wai at HK$35,000 per square feet, setting a record for New Territories standard flats.

The 1,269 sq ft unit fetched a top price of HK$44.42 million.

Three four-bedroom units were sold through tender yesterday for prices ranging down from that to HK$39 million.

The Pavilia Farm has seen 2,942 flats sold in nine months, accounting for 95 percent of the whole project. That amounts to nearly HK$36.2 billion.

Its chief executive Adrian Cheng Chi-kong pointed out that the market is eager for high-quality real estate, which has resulted in excellent sales. The group quickly launched additional units to meet market demands.

Sales for 85 more units will open Saturday, while another 10 units will be open for tender.

That came as The Development Studio named its 23-story project in Sheung Wan's Tung Street as 42 Tung St, offering 13 units.

The project has two types of flats: nine 585 sq ft standard flats and four 1,157 sq ft duplex flats. Each flat has a private lift.

The price list for the nine standard flats is expected to drop a few days later and flat sales are expected to open early next month.

The MTR station is a six-minute walk.

The developer expects per-sq-ft price to hit new highs for similar buildings.

Construction will finish on September 30 next year.

Meanwhile, Far East Consortium International (0035) has named its Sha Tin luxury project Mount Arcadia, offering 62 units and four houses.

The units range from 1,018 to 1,548 sq ft, while the four houses are more than double those sizes at 2,800 to 3,400 sq ft.

The project will open for sale next month and will use flats in Kau To Shan as a price reference.

整體甲廈空置率跌至9.4% 代理行料租金跌幅放緩


疫情逐步回穩,為甲廈市場釋出正面訊息。有代理行指出,上月甲廈租賃市場錄11.63萬正吸納量,屬過去23個月以來首次,空置率輕微回落至9.4%,該代理行認為,市場最差時間已成過去,料下半年甲廈租金跌幅放緩。

據該代理行最新發表的市場報告指,儘管市場不乏待租樓面,惟甲廈市場於今年5月錄11.63萬方呎正吸納量 (即承租樓面大於退租樓面),為2019年7月、即過去23個月以來首見,意味市況得以改善。

市場錄11.63萬正吸納量

該代理行亦指出,於疫市下企業對地產的需求改變,加上現時租金水平已跌至可負擔水平,令更多租戶選擇搬遷至優質寫字樓,提升工作環境,市場近期承租個案為,大型外賣平台承租銅鑼灣時代廣場兩層樓面,總面積約3.9萬方呎。

據該代理行統計數據顯示,甲廈空置率得以改善,上月市場整體空置率為9.4%,較今年4月的9.5%比較,雖然跌幅輕微,卻是今年以來首錄下跌,其中,中環區空置率約7.2%,較4月的7.5%按月下跌約4%,跌幅亦較大市為高。月內較矚目的租賃成交為靈活辦公空間營運商承租中環友邦金融中心全層,總面積1.58萬方呎。

尖區租金按月跌2.1%「最傷」

該代理行指出,現今普遍業主均願意調低租金以吸引新租戶,上月甲廈租金仍按月跌1.4%,較今年4月租金跌幅僅0.9%,進一步惡化,並錄連跌23個月,以各區劃分,尖沙嘴為重災區,該區按月租金跌幅達2.1%,而中環租金則下跌約1%。

甲廈租金按月跌1.4%

代理表示,隨疫情逐步回穩,為市場釋出正面訊息,加上疫苗接種率增加,企業對本港經濟逐漸恢復信心,租戶於過去數月開始轉趨積極,該行相信甲廈租賃市場最差的時刻已經過去,下半年主要商業區租金跌幅將轉趨緩和。

此外,商鋪及貨倉租賃交投於5月也見回升。

代理表示,4月零售業總銷貨額按年繼續上升12.1%,5月商鋪租賃市場錄得數宗矚目成交,強勁的外圍貿易環境也帶動5月貨倉租賃交投繼續上升。

市場消息指出,上環偉利大廈8低層09室,面積約650方呎,以688萬售出,呎價約10585元;此外,旺角區內亦頻錄商廈買賣,其中,中僑商業大廈低層01室,面積約635方呎,以659.9萬售出,呎價約10393元。

九龍灣甲廈空置率 高見2成

代理資料顯示,九龍各區空置率仍偏高,九龍灣區空置率更達21.13%,而其他多區則輕微回落。

據代理統計,5月份九龍區整體甲級商廈空置率錄得約12.61%,比4月份減少0.49個百分點,而相比去年同期則見輕微反彈,按年遞增1.12個百分點。統計4區空置情況,在尖沙咀、旺角、九龍灣及觀塘中。當中以九龍灣區最高,5月份區內甲廈空置率錄得約21.13%,按月微升0.02個百分點,按年則高出0.19個百分點。

觀塘空置率 按月回落

另外,個別地區出現回落,觀塘最新甲廈空置率為12.83%,比上月下跌1.44個百分點。觀塘作為第二核心商業區,區內甲級寫字樓樓面供應充足而令空置率長期維持於雙位數字水平,但該區商貿發展成熟完善,租金比尖沙咀及旺角一帶商廈相對相宜,且個別業主叫價有所下調,因此近期亦吸引不少租客首選進駐。

至於旺角甲廈空置情況都有不俗改善,由4月約9.05%,回落至最新約7.98%,跌幅約1.07個百分點。而尖沙咀區數字就錄得輕微跌幅,按月減少0.06個百分點至5月數字約8.42%。

租客進駐 料後市向好

代理指出,九龍區優質商廈質素上乘,呎租叫價亦見競爭力,同時更集商業及零售娛樂等元素於一身,因而租務更添靈活及彈性,目標租客群更廣泛,將會吸引不少企業租客進駐首選,料九龍區甲廈空置率會持續改善,有機會呈下調走勢。

觀塘新甲廈租金相宜 上半年成焦點

疫情下整體甲廈租務新需求疲弱,而觀塘為各區中甲廈租務相對活躍,由於該區新甲廈質素佳,租金較相宜,故吸引不少機構遷入。

上半年甲廈租務市場不算活躍,主要租務多為搬遷。觀塘新甲廈較多,而近2年落成的項目,成搬遷焦點。如國際貿易中心上半年租務甚活躍,首季已錄得2宗大租務,物業20及21樓全層,以及19樓半層樓面,合共約10萬平方呎,獲DHL集團租用。該集團原租用九龍灣 MegaBox 多層寫字樓10多年,涉約12萬平方呎,屬搬遷縮減業務,亦提升寫字樓質素。其後項目約14.5萬平方呎樓面,獲宏利保險租用。宏利香港宣布,已簽約承租基金太盟投資 (PAG) 旗下國際貿易中心約14.5萬平方呎樓面,以面積計,為2019年7月以來的最大宗成交,亦是2018年以來東九龍最大宗租賃個案。宏利原承租觀塘道223號宏利金融中心共約38萬平方呎樓面,有計劃放棄租用部分樓面,轉移至該廈。

網購平台 國際貿易中心全層

近日該廈亦錄全層租務,涉及低層全層,面積約3.6萬平方呎,以每平方呎約30元租出。據悉,新租客為Farfetch網購平台,包括女士名牌服裝、首飾等,而公司原租用黃竹坑物業,如今整合業務加上提升寫字樓級數,搬至觀塘區。

另一幢近年落成的觀塘海濱匯,最近錄2宗租務成交,其中9樓一單位,面積約2萬平方呎,以每平方呎約26元租出。該廈於2019年落成,高峰期呎租達35元以上,現已回調逾2成。據悉,新租客為英國超市Sainsbury's,該品牌原租用同區國際貿易中心低層全層,涉及約3.6萬平方呎,是次同區搬遷屬縮減業務,可節省租金開支。

傳媒集團租海濱匯3.6萬呎

該廈另一宗租務來自同層,涉及約3.6萬平方呎樓面,以每平方呎約26元租出,租客為新傳媒集團。該機構原使用觀塘鴻圖道82號新傳媒集團中心,該廈業主今年4月以5.08億元沽出物業,總樓面面積約8.95萬平方呎,呎價約5,676元,由外資黑石基金購入,並打算把物業轉作迷你倉業務,故集團需尋找新辦公室,現租用海濱匯樓面。

分析指,疫情下各國仍採入境限制措施,跨國企業未能來港視察物業,加上疫情下生意受影響,不少機構需要控制成本,因此搬遷至租金較便宜的地區。觀塘不少新式甲廈近2年落成,質素甚佳,而呎租水平約25至30元,較港島區平一半以上,因此吸引機構搬遷以節省開支,相信下半年東九龍仍是甲廈租務焦點。

半島廣場全層1.35億沽

疫情稍回穩,帶動工廈交投回勇,市場再錄大手成交,消息指,紅磡半島廣場中層全層以1.35億連兩車位易手,每呎造價約5050元,屬市價水平。

據代理指出,上述買賣為紅磡半島廣場中層全層,作價以1.35億連兩車位易手,每個車位市值約300萬,以全層面積26681方呎計,呎價約5050元,屬市價水平。

據土地註冊處資料顯示,上址原業主為OTTO INTERNATIONAL (HONG KONG) LIMITED,早於1993年以一籃子形式購入該廈單位,當時作價約9768.1萬。

平均呎價5050

代理亦指出,由該集團於去年中亦沽出該廈17樓及22樓全層,成交價分別為1.3億及6835.6萬,呎價則為4901元及4567元,故該集團於一年內連沽該廈3伙,合共套現逾3.3億。

據代理資料顯示,該廈再對上一宗成交為於2018年6月,當時該廈中層4室,面積2230方呎,以1788萬售出,呎價約8018元。

另一方面,甲廈市場亦頻錄承租個案。消息指,上環中遠大廈錄連錄承租,其中,該廈高層12至13室,面積3007方呎,以每呎50元租出,月租約15萬;另一宗為低層03室,面積1547方呎,以64974元租出,呎租約42元。

粉嶺住宅地估值調升20% 新界東北地價彈升 大中小財團今入標角逐

政府進一步發展新界東北,區內地價亦水漲船高,繼區內首幅住宅地月前以天價成交,粉嶺粉錦公路住宅地今日截標,業界紛調高估值約兩成,最新約18.5億至21.5億,樓面呎價6500至7600元;各大中財團均表示有意爭逐。

該地鄰粉嶺高爾夫球會。政府銳意拓展新界東北,當中古洞北新發展區內首幅住宅地,新地於4月尾高價約86億,樓面呎價7183元成交,反映區內發展潛力。

地價料逾18.5

有測量師指,地皮雖與古洞站距離較遠,地契亦要求發展商需造接駁道路供行人及車輛行走,惟質素較早前區內首幅住宅地更好,故調高估值逾兩成半,料地皮價值21.5億,將來落成住宅售價16000至21000元。

業界:東北屬未來供應重鎮

另一測量師指,古洞北地皮第2、3標與中標價相差不到一成,反映發展商態度積極,因此調高估值兩成,預期是次將吸引約10家財團入標,料市值達18.5億,樓面地價近6500元,落成住宅以1、2房戶為主,呎價約18000元。

測量師稱,是次地皮面積較少,規劃難度較大,料不會破上次呎價,仍由原本預計樓面地價約5750元,調高約兩成至約6750元。

嘉華國際營業及市場策劃總監 (香港地產) 溫偉明指,積極考慮入標,落成後享高爾夫球場景又近上水站,屬優質地皮;惟近年開發新市鎮慢,望政府加快覓地維持地價合理。

嘉華資策等紛表興趣

資本策略董事總經理方文彬表示,積極考慮入標,政府計畫於古洞北推商貿及科技園,新田/落馬洲發展樞紐提供逾3萬伙,將帶動區內未來發展及樓價,增發展商投資意欲。

佳明營業及市務總監顏景鳳表示,相信不同地皮都有其價值,每個發展商會自己計算,決定是否入標。

五礦地產營銷及市務總監方俊指,是次雖未打算入標,惟大西北為未來發展重點,看好其發展前景,樓面呎價有望打破7183元紀錄。

新地於4月投得的古洞北新發展區住宅地,當時接獲10份標書,其他入標財團包括恒基、長實、華置、華懋、鷹君及九建,合資發展的有佳兆業與萬科香港、會德豐地產與遠東、嘉里、信和、新世界及嘉華。

市建庇利街項目今截意向

此外,市建局土瓜灣庇利街/榮光街住宅項目今截收意向書,項目面積79720方呎,可建樓面逾71.74萬方呎,市場估值逾100億。

PORTS 1961提早兩年棄廣東道舖 退租4層旗艦店 月慳700萬

本地新冠肺炎疫情雖已緩和,但中港兩地仍未恢復通關,缺少自由行客源的零售地段市道可謂復甦無期。昔日名店林立的尖沙咀廣東道風光不再,繼去年有不少舖位結業丟空後,再有巨型舖位租客提早棄租。其中,加拿大高級時裝品牌PORTS 1961,剛提早兩年退租每月高達700萬元的海威商業中心4層複式旗艦店巨舖;而冠亞名表城則提前一年終止同區文利大廈逾4200方呎地舖的租約。

加拿大名店PORTS 1961旗艦店原位於廣東道116至120號海威商業中心地下B及C舖連1至3樓,建築面積共1.1萬方呎,連外牆大廣告位,該品牌在2014年零售高峰期以每月700萬元承租,呎租636元,租期長達9年。據了解,該品牌突於近期撤出上址,提早兩年棄租,估計最少可節省約1.68億元租金開支。

資料顯示,海威商業中心地下B、C舖及1樓的業主為「木器大王」傅世彪家族,在2013年向其他單位業主以包租形式承租2、3樓全層及外牆廣告位,其後更入則建內置樓梯打通地下至3樓共4層舖位,吸納單一租客,最終在零售市道高位以每月700萬元租出,成功令租值大幅提高13倍。

不過,現時零售市況低迷,奢侈品零售商以收縮為主,短期內難望有租客承租大樓面舖位。代理指出,業主方面亦未有急於推出舖位招租,日後或有機會重新分間出租。

冠亞名表城賠4530萬解約

而位處同一地段的廣東道86至98號文利大廈地下1至3號舖,建築面積4275方呎,原由冠亞名表城作勞力士 (Rolex) 專門店,在2013年起以630萬元承租,租期6年。

在2015至2017年期間高檔零售市道突急轉直下,冠亞名表城曾把舖位其中1000方呎,推出市場尋求分租以減輕租金負擔,惟一直未獲承接。其後市道稍為好轉,加上租金較高位折讓,該品牌在2019年獲減租至350萬元續約,呎租819元,租期至明年5月。

不過,冠亞名表城最終亦不敵疫情衝擊,向業主賠償4530萬元,以換取提早一年終止租約,舖位在上月正式結業。

施華洛世奇舊舖兩折放租

至於原由奧地利水晶品牌施華洛世奇 (Swarovski) 租用達12載的廣東道16號地下,建築面積約700方呎,去年底結業前月租150萬元,呎租2143元。其後業主以每月80萬元放租,已較原租金低46.7%。由於舖位已丟空超過半年,故此近期把租金減至30萬元,但要視乎租客背景及質素才會出租,叫租過去逾半年累減62.5%,更較舊租低120萬元或80%,惟目前仍未獲承租。

Positive net absorption cheers office market

Hong Kong office market recorded its first positive net absorption since July 2019, reaching 116,300 square feet in May, according to property agency's latest report.

The overall vacancy rate fell 0.1 percentage points month-on-month to 9.4 percent.

More corporate tenants are opting to upgrade their offices as rents have become more affordable, the real estate consultancy said.

For instance, food delivery company Foodpanda rented two floors at Times Square in Causeway Bay.

The gross leasing volume in Central has improved in recent months, with the vacancy rate in the submarket retreating 0.3 percentage points to 7.2 percent.

While rental growth was recorded during the month, rents in the overall market still declined by 1.4 percent month-on-month as landlords were more willing to lower their asking rents to entice new tenants. Offices in Tsim Sha Tsui experienced the biggest rental decline while rents in Central were more resilient. The average monthly rent was HK$56.3 per sq ft.

In the retail market, leasing volume improved, with a few notable deals recorded. Hong Kong-based luxury goods retailer Dickson Concepts has committed to a six-year lease of a 17,000-sq-ft outlet at CMB Wing Lung Bank Centre in Mongkok for a monthly rent of HK$3 million. However, home sales slipped by 3.3 percent to 7,084 in May, due to a decrease in secondary transactions.

The primary market has been driven by the launches of large-scale projects and sell-through rates were generally well-received, agent said.

Meanwhile, in the residential market, China Overseas Land and Investment (0688) has released the first price list of One Victoria at Kai Tak, involving 212 units with an average price of HK$22,977 per sq ft after discounts.

The flats are 13 percent cheaper than the first batch of The Henley I, also in Kai Tak.

They range in size from 329 sq ft to 643 sq ft, and include-62 one-bedroom, 126 two-bedroom, and 24 three-bedroom flats. The cheapest flat costs-HK$6.56 million.

One Victoria is expected to open sales in early July. Also expected to open sales next month are Mount Arcadia in Sha Tin and 42 Tung St in Sheung Wan.

First Kai Tak runway residential project priced 13 per cent cheaper to ‘activate sales’

First batch of 212 units at One Victoria is priced at an average of HK$22,977 per square foot

Sales are expected to start early next month

Hong Kong’s first residential project on the runway of the city’s former airport at Kai Tak has been priced about 13 per cent lower than a development put on sale in the area in April.

China Overseas Land and Investment on Thursday set the prices of the first batch of 212 units at One Victoria at an average of HK$22,977 (US$2,959) per square foot.

“The project has a lot of units, so the prices were set more attractively to attract registrations of intent,” property agent said. The project also had to compete with leftover stock in the area, the agent added.

The launch of the price list comes amid a boom in Hong Kong’s housing market. Residential property transactions have surged by about 35 per cent in the first half of this year – the highest level since the second half of 2012 – to more than 38,500 deals, according to the property agency. Transaction volumes have also skyrocketed by about half to about HK$366 billion, the highest level since the first half of 1997.

The 1,059-unit One Victoria is expected to be delivered around March 2023. Its average price is lower than the HK$26,448 per square foot Henderson Land Development set in April for The Henley, which is in the same area but is closer to Kai Tak Station. The Henley sold about 70 per cent of units on offer in its first sale last month.

There was room for prices to increase during launches of subsequent batches, said Tony Yau Wai-kwong, director and general manager of China Overseas Property, a unit of the developer.

The current batch of One Victoria units is sized from 329 sq ft to 643 sq ft, with prices starting at HK$6.56 million after discounts. Sales are expected to start early next month, at the earliest.

“The first batch of units is likely to be sold in one go,” another property agent said.

The project’s pricing can definitely “activate sales”, as it is about 5 per cent lower than that of lived-in homes in the area, and about 15 per cent lower than that of leftover stock from new projects there, the agent said.

The land price of One Victoria at about HK$13,500 per square foot in December 2018 was about 10 per cent lower than the about HK$15,100 per square foot that Henderson paid for the land where The Henley is coming up. Henderson bought the land from HNA Group in 2018.

One Victoria is about a 45-minute walk from the Kai Tak Station at the moment. It is also likely to be surrounded by construction sites.

With the opening on Sunday of the Tuen Ma Line, which connects the West Rail Line and the Tuen Ma Line Phase 1 and includes the Kai Tak Station, the Kai Tak district will “officially enter the harvest season” and mature in terms of community development, the agent said. As the first waterfront project on the runway, One Victoria will offer good views, the agent added.

17中港財團搶粉嶺住宅地 群雄紛入標角逐 佳兆業:地皮位置優越

政府銳意發展新界東北,區內古洞北地皮月前以天價成交,令昨日截標的粉嶺粉錦公路住宅地備受矚目,共截收17份標書,多於市場預期,吸引本地及內房群起競逐。業內人士預期,地皮可建逾28萬方呎,市場估值達18.5億至21.5億,成交價將對區內地皮有指標作用。

位於粉錦公路與青山公路─古洞段交界的住宅地昨日截標,地政總署公布,共截收17份標書。在遞交標書現場所見,表明獨資競投包括佳兆業、長實、恒基、會德豐地產、華懋、嘉里、建灝、英皇、漢國、永泰及其士,另新地及九建亦有入標,而信和則夥拍招商局置地及爪哇合組財團競投。

瞄準新界東北潛力

佳兆業資本市場部、傳媒及投資者關係部總經理助理杜晴表示,是次為獨資入標,出價合理及具競爭力,有信心投得地皮,認為地皮位置及景觀均屬優質,看好區內發展前景。

英皇國際物業經理蔡宏基表示,政府大力發展新界東北,看好其未來前景。入標價參考近日一手市況及鄰近地區二手住宅成交價,地皮鄰近粉嶺高爾夫球場,落成後可享開揚景觀,以中小型單位為主,亦會有少量洋房。此外,亦有意競投下月截標的古洞24區地。

建灝地產行政經理林綺華表示,現時住宅需求大,雖然區內目前交通配套不足,依然值得長遠投資發展,預料興建中小型單位。漢國地產策劃董事李振彪表示,早前政府推出地皮面積太大,是次面積較為適合故出手,並非刻意選擇該地區,而是相信未來整體住宅需求大。

業界:標數多於預期

有測量師表示,最初估計有10份標書,是次標數多於預期,相信是因為有新地以高價投得區內首塊地皮,對市場有正面作用,增加其他發展商的投資信心。另一測量師表示,招標反應踴躍,反映發展商現時更為看好新界東北的未來發展。而由於地盤面積比首幅住宅地小,因此可見大部分財團均以獨資發展,而非合組財團。

市值18.5億至21.5

綜合市場估值,項目估價18.5億至21.5億,樓面呎價6500至7600元,有機會打破古洞北新發展區內首幅住宅地的紀錄。新地於4月尾高價約86億投得該地,樓面呎價7183元成交,反映區內發展潛力。

市建庇利街項目截收36份意向

市建局旗下土瓜灣庇利街/榮光街發展項目,於昨日截收發展意向書。局方發言人稱,共接獲36份意向。是次遞交意向財團包括恒基、新地、華懋、南豐、佳兆業、中國海外、鷹君、英皇國際、招商局置地、遠東發展、旭輝及爪哇等。

佳兆業資本市場部、傳媒及投資者關係部總經理助理杜晴稱,項目規模較大,鄰近鐵路站,而且屯馬綫通車在即,看好區內發展潛力,亦看好本港未來樓市發展,集團對不同類型地皮都感興趣。

項目估值逾百億

英皇國際物業經理蔡宏基表示,是次屬罕有大規模項目,且交通便利,而本港對市區地皮有剛性需求,吸引集團遞交意向書。

有測量師預計。地皮估值近107.6億,樓面呎價約1.5萬。

Hong Kong’s weekend home sales post mixed results as buyers are spoilt for choice amid 14 per cent increase in property supply

New World Development sold 79 of the 85 flats on offer at The Pavilia Farm project in Tai Wai, even as the average price rose 24 per cent from May

At Cheung Sha Wan, CK Asset Holdings found buyers for 14 of the last remaining 103 apartments at Seaside Sonata

Hong Kong’s weekend property sales were mixed, as buyers snapped up the apartments on offer at a new development in Tai Wai but gave their collective cold shoulder to leftover flats from a 20-month project in Cheung Sha Wan.

New World Development sold 79 of the 85 flats on offer at The Pavilia Farm project in Tai Wai, even as the average price of the units on offer had risen by 24 per cent to HK$24,858 per square foot, compared with the launch price in late May.

At Cheung Sha Wan, CK Asset Holdings managed to find buyers for 14 of the last remaining 103 apartments at the Seaside Sonata project left over from their October 2019 launch, according to property agency.

“Buyers are waiting for new projects, for example the One Victoria in Kai Tak,” agent said.

A long queue was seen at China Overseas Land and Investment’s showroom in Kowloon Bay on Saturday, where 1,300 prospective buyers had registered for the 212 flats of One Victoria since the registration began on Friday. The project comprises 1,059 flats.

The stark contrast between the two sales underscores how Hong Kong’s property buyers are becoming more selective in making long-term financial commitments, as 36,919 new abodes are expected to be launched in 2021, 14.3 per cent more than last year’s supply, according to another property agency.

Hong Kong’s economy is on the mend, recovering from several quarters of recession brought on by the social unrest and the coronavirus pandemic. The city’s economy expanded by 7.9 per cent in the first quarter, the most in 11 years, while new home sales are rising at the fastest pace in two years.

“Given high property prices, very low interest rates but an improving economy, we expect gradual property price increases in line with household income growth for the residential market,” Goldman Sachs analyst Gurpeet Singh Sahi wrote in a June 6 report, adding that it expects Hong Kong’s home prices to rise by 5 per cent in 2021. “[An] easing of Covid-19-related border restrictions between Hong Kong and mainland China would benefit the sale of luxury residential flats.”

Residential property transactions surged by about 35 per cent in the first half of this year – the highest level since the second half of 2012 – to more than 38,500 deals, according to Midland. Transaction volume also skyrocketed by about half to about HK$366 billion (US$47.2 billion), the highest level since the first half of 1997.

New World has reported several sell-out weekends at The Pavilia Farm III, selling 833 flats out of 892 units on offer as of last Saturday, with HK$12.1 billion in total revenue since June 5.

“The residential market is entering a robust mode,” agent said. “Not only were new flats sought after by homebuyers, but also lived-in homes with higher asking prices.”

The prices of lived-in homes released by the Rating and Valuation Department extended a four-month rally in April and were within about 1.5 per cent of a historic high recorded in May 2019, before the anti-government protests kicked off.

“We may see it smash the record as soon as the authority released the data for May on Monday; otherwise, it will for sure set a record by the end of June,” agent said, expecting another up to 8 per cent increase in lived-in home price in the second half.

代理:上月工商鋪錄632宗買賣

據代理資料所得,今年5月全港錄632宗工商鋪買賣登記,較4月693宗回落9%,但仍處於近24個月的次高水平,且連續3個月錄逾600宗,為2018年第四季以來,即逾2年半最旺的市況;至於月內買賣合約總值錄得76.89億,按月下跌42%,主要是月內逾億大額登記有所減少。

按工商鋪3個物業類別劃分,5月工廈錄351宗登記,按月跌8%,佔整體工商鋪成交達55.5%。至於鋪位買賣,5月錄154宗登記,按月減少17%,跌幅主要集中在細價物業,而2000萬以上者則持續上升,故亦帶動月內店鋪買賣登記總額逆市上升,錄26.26億,按月增2%。

代理指出,工商鋪整體登記量已連續3個月企穩在逾600至近700宗的水平,料6月仍可承接如此旺勢,市場亦已確認目前是落注及加碼的好時機。加上整體經濟復甦,失業率及破產情況有改善,相信可加強投資者入市信心,配合8月份消費券推出料可進一步帶旺消費市道,因此預期本月及第三季工商鋪市道將可以繼續看高一綫。

市局重提兼善里 有機重建

市建局在2019年以沉重財務承擔為由,未接納長沙灣兼善里舊樓業主提出重建方案。市建局行政總監韋志成昨日再在網誌重提兼善里,並透露正利用「市區更新資訊系統」(URIS) 進行「小區規劃」,包括審視將鄰近的長沙灣道政府臨時工地。即有機會納入一併發展。

長沙灣兼善里的多幢唐樓樓齡高達60年,區內業主要求市區重建局盡快重建該區,惟韋志成曾經在2019年中發表網誌,指重建存在規劃、財務,安置調遷等多項困難。

連比鄰臨時工地 或一併發展

雖然他形容,兼善里重建收購及補償支出近100億元,而且重建後估計只能提供約1,000伙,較現有包括劏房內在的住戶多達2,100伙的數目,少多達1,100個,再次形容是「開倒車」,不過,URIS預先整合了區內土地的用途、發展密度、樓宇狀況、人口和住戶分布以至商業營運和公共設施等地理資訊數據,可以審視樓宇群附近是否有適合的政府土地和社區設施,並可以納入「小區規劃」的發展計劃內,增加可發展的樓面面積,達致地盡其用。

據網誌圖片,除了標示兼善里舊樓組,亦劃出比鄰深水埗運動場的一幅面積約7萬平方呎的政府臨時工地,或顯示當局有意將臨時工地亦納入小區重建範圍內。

下季賣地計劃料推3幅 涉380伙少6成

連同一鐵一局項目 估計共提供3130單位

發展局將於本周公布新一季賣地計劃,估計可供推出的官地有3幅,僅涉及380伙,連同一鐵一局項目,估計合共可提供3,130伙,按季多一倍,首半個年度土地供應僅達標3成多。

發展局局長黃偉綸將會公布2021/22年度第二季 (2021年7月至9月) 的賣地計劃,據資料顯示,有望在上半年度供應的地皮尚有3幅未推出,合共涉及380伙,較今個季度推出的980伙,按季減少6成,並且是近一年最少官地推出的一季。

由於市建局已經提前推出土瓜灣庇利街/榮光街項目,涉及1,150伙,再連同已經完成改劃的港鐵  (00066) 東涌配電站項目 (涉及約1,600伙),估計下季來自「一鐵一局」的供應將近約2,750伙,而整體全季土地供應約3,130伙,將會較今季的1,530伙,按季大增1倍。

不過,由於首季土地供應較少,導致2021/22年度上半年 (2021年4月至9月) 合計的土地供應估計亦只有4,660伙左右,較今年度的推地目標12,900伙,只是36%左右,整體供應能否達標相當取決於私人重建及補地價的步伐。

有測量師認為,短中期內政府官地比較短缺,供應以市建局、鐵路項目為主,早前推出的項目都是北環綫沿綫的古洞地皮,其餘地皮不會很快成熟可推出,要增加供應能夠達標,相信要靠補地價及重建。若果政府能放寬市區土地地積比率,將會增加誘因加快發展商重建。

九龍塘廣播道地 估值達13.5

至於有機會在下季推出的3幅官地,以市區地皮為主,焦點將會是位於九龍塘廣播道的前教育電視中心,地皮佔地近2.4萬平方呎,以地積比率3倍計算,可建樓面約7.1萬平方呎,預計可供興建約80個單位,預計有望打造成為豪宅項目。

據資料顯示,地皮估值約8.5億至13.5億元,每呎樓面地價約1.2萬至1.9萬元,預期除了大型發展商外,亦會吸引不少中小型財團爭奪。

另一幅下季推出的市區地皮,則為灣仔皇后大道東269號地皮,現址為呂祺教育服務中心,可建樓面約9.9萬平方呎,多年前曾納入賣地計劃中,後來受司法覆核影響被剔出,近年再納入賣地表內,市場估值約11.9億至14.9億元。

One Victoria set to roll out 100 more flats

China Overseas Land and Investment (0688) expects to release about 100 flats in the second price list of One Victoria in Kai Tak soon.

The developer has received around 2,600 registrations of intent from potential buyers for 212 flats in the first list, making them more than 11 times oversubscribed.

The 212 flats, measuring between 329 square feet and 643 sq ft, are offered at an average price of HK$22,977 per sq ft, after a maximum 13.5 percent discount is applied. The cheapest flat, measuring 330 sq ft, is offered at HK$6.56 million, or HK$19,888 per sq ft after discounts.

One Victoria, which is expected to be the first residential project to go on sale on the former Kai Tak airport runway, provides 1,059 flats. The project sits in Kai Tak Area 4B Site 2, which has a site area of 97,392 sq ft and a maximum gross floor area of 594,082 sq ft.

China Overseas won the tender for the residential plot for HK$8.03 billion, or HK$13,523 per buildable sq ft in December 2018.

Two years later in December 2020, the state-run mainland developer also won the tender for another residential plot, Kai Tak Area 4E Site 1, for HK$4.27 billion.

Meanwhile, New World Development (0017) has collected about HK$1 billion after selling 81 out of 95 flats on offer at the first and second phases of The Pavilia Farm atop Tai Wai Station over the weekend. A 264-sq-ft flat at the second phase fetched HK$8.74 million, or HK$33,117 per sq ft.

The third phase of the project received about 30,500 registrations of intent from potential buyers in the third round of sale, the highest number of registrations since 1997.

In the secondary market, property agency reported 15 secondary deals at 10 blue-chip housing estates over the past weekend, down by 1 transaction from a week before.

A 729-sq-ft flat at Mei Foo Sun Chuen in Lai Chi Kok changed hands for HK$9.71 million, or HK$13,320 per sq ft. The seller will gain HK$10,000 after holding the property for three years.

In the rentals market, a 529-sq-ft flat at South Horizons in Ap Lei Chau was rented for HK$19,800 per month, or HK$37.4 per sq ft.

工商舖5月買賣登記連續三個月逾600

資料顯示,5月全港共錄得632宗工商舖物業買賣登記,按月回落9%,但仍處於近24個月的次高水平,且連續3個月錄逾600宗,為逾兩年半最旺;至於月內買賣合約總值錄得76.89億元,按月下跌42%,主要是月內逾億元的大額登記有所減少。

按工商舖3個物業類別劃分,工廈按月登記量維持最多。5月工廈錄得351宗登記,按月跌8%,佔整體工商舖成交達55.5%。雖然5月高價工廈買賣登記量普遍錄得升幅,惟月內缺乏整幢轉手的登記,故拖累月內工廈買賣金額大跌39%,只錄得約32.68億元。

商廈買賣登記量錄得連續3個月上升,5月共錄127宗,按月再升2%;月內整體商廈買賣登記金額按月下挫66%,至只有17.95億元,主因是前月有大額全幢登記抽升基數所致。

店舖買賣登記量方面,經過連月大升後,5月略為回軟。期內錄得154宗登記,按月減少17%,為工商舖中跌幅最大的類別。不過,跌幅主要集中在細價物業,令店舖買賣登記總額逆市上升,錄26.26億元,按月增2%。

代理表示,工商舖整體登記量已連續3個月企穩在逾600至近700宗的水平,預料6月仍可承接如此旺勢,市場亦已確認目前是落注及加碼的好時機。受惠疫情轉緩及疫苗持續接種,通關之日又邁進一大步;加上整體經濟復甦,失業及破產情況有改善,相信可加強投資者入市信心,配合8月消費券推出料可進一步帶旺消費市道,因此預期本月及第三季工商舖市道將可以繼續看高一線。

Hong Kong sees rising interest in property auctions, as housing market outlook improves

The number of potential buyers has increased because of the rising property market, analyst says

There will be buyers for foreclosed property because of housing shortage: auctioneer

Interest in property auctions has risen amid a boom in Hong Kong’s housing market, despite a decline in the number of properties foreclosed.

An improving economy, the easing coronavirus pandemic and low interest rates have all contributed to this trend, market players said.

“The number of [potential buyers] has increased by about 10 per cent than [earlier] because of the rising property market,” surveyor said.

The rise in interest in foreclosed properties, along with increased offers and more consistent transactions comes as Hong Kong’s unemployment ratehas started to fall and operations of sectors hit hard by the pandemic such as retail, catering and entertainment have normalised.

An improving economy, however, also means fewer homes are being foreclosed. The number of homes taken over by lenders stood at about 90 until this month, and would not go beyond 100 for the whole year, the surveyor said. The original owners had a higher ability to buy back their properties and banks were not too stringent with foreclosures, the surveyor added.

Foreclosed properties were selling more quickly and more frequently, and while there are no official statistics available for this category, the surveyor said that about 12 such homes were sold in June, as of early last week.

At auctions, price offers had increased, by about 10 per cent for homes put up for auction by owners, and by 5 per cent to 7 per cent for homes auctioned by banks, the surveyor said.

More people were viewing such properties and placing bids, an auctioneer said. More deals were being struck before actual auctions, the auctioneer added, although the price increases during bidding were not large.

“There will be buyers for normal mass-market properties, as long as they are 5 per cent to 10 per cent lower than market price, since the market has a shortage of supply,” the auctioneer said.

The flurry of transactions has been consistent before, during and after auctions, in the first half of this year, another auctioneer said. Last year, there were periods when there were no transactions, the auctioneer added.

The bids for a 1,355 sq ft house at Marina Cove in Sai Kung went up from HK$14.9 million (US$1.9 million) to HK$16.6 million at an auction by the auctioneer last week. The Bank of China (Hong Kong), however, values the house at HK$30.15 million. The property was discounted as it saw a suicide some years ago, the auctioneer said.

The auctioneer said his colleagues were taking the time to educate potential buyers as more people – including those who have never bought such properties – were asking about foreclosed properties over the phone or viewing them.

“This year, there have been so many calls that our colleagues have had to [answer] over 100 calls for certain listings,” the auctioneer said. “Many listings had many people inquiring about them. My colleagues were overwhelmed by just answering their calls.”

上環新紀元廣場 配套理想交通便


新紀元廣場位於上環商廈心臟地段,配套理想,為區內指標商廈之一。

上環新紀元廣場位於皇后大道中181號,具地利及交通優勢,比鄰中環商業區、港澳碼頭及多幢著名甲廈商厦。值得一提,物業鄰近港鐵站、巴士站、電車站及渡輪,亦有多條巴士綫可到達;而物業正對港鐵上環站E2出口,只是一街之隔,或可步行至中環商業區只須約10分鐘,交通便利。

物業位於香港中環核心商業地段,鄰近中遠大廈中環中心無限極廣場南豐大廈永安中心等著名甲廈。飲食配套上,上班一族可到附近鴨巴甸街及歌賦街,有多間茶餐廳、酒樓、特色小店、咖啡室及甜點蛋糕店可供選擇,若下雨天不想外出覓食也可選擇物業基座,亦有商舖設有不少食肆提供。

間隔實用 合中小企

大廈於1998年落成,物業設有永樂街及皇后大道中入口,該廈分為舖位及寫字樓用途,基座為商舖,而樓層為寫字樓。大廈共有8部升降機,高低層各4部,讓繁忙時段可分流客人,不用電梯大堂過分擠迫,而該廈提供專用載貨升降機。

物業與中遠大廈之間為廣場,平常人流暢旺,而兩大廈間有噴水池及園景,打造成「城市小花園」,氣派感十足,略勝同區大廈。物業雖沒有停車場,但駕車人士可從到附近中遠大廈停車場,同樣方便。

標準樓面全層面積約15,451平方呎,樓高28層,該廈用家為商業用途,整體樓層間隔實用及企理裝修,特別適合中小型企業使用,比如商業、銀行及保險公司等。

物業位於商業區,大廈兩旁是高樓大廈,而與中遠大廈間相隔小花園,因此不會感到擠迫,而單位主要望向城市景觀,尚算開陽。

買賣方面,2016年物業中高層全層,面積約15,451平方呎,以約3.090億元易手,呎價高見20,000元,比同年另一宗買賣交易,呎價17,022元更創新高。近期一宗交易於2019年,同樣中高層,面積約2,225平方呎,以約4,450萬元易手,呎價同為20,000元。

鄧成波家族近月頻沽貨 套近70億

再沽2屋邨商場 陳秉志等13億接貨

鄧成波家族沽貨停不了,消息指,波叔早年向領展 (00823) 購入葵涌安蔭商場及荃灣石圍角商場,現以13億元沽予「磁帶大王」陳秉志等財團,持貨5年帳面雖平手離場,惟需蝕逾1億元印花稅。單計近一個月沽貨,家族已套現近70億元。

近期鄧成波家族頻頻放售物業,個別大樓面舖位獲承接。據悉,家族旗下葵涌安蔭及荃灣石圍角商場,兩項目合共以約13億元沽出。兩物業均為民生區商場,葵涌安蔭商場樓高兩層,地下設有街市,總樓面約40,889平方呎;租客包括洗衣店、便利店等民生商戶,出租率約77%,每月租金收入約218.4萬元。

兩物業共提供933個車位

另一項物業為石圍角商場,亦包括街市,總樓面約13.2萬平方呎,現由超市、麥當勞快餐店等租用,出租率約79%,每月租金收入約314.5萬元。值得一提,兩項物業均設有停車場,分別提供355及578個車位,共涉933個。

據悉,兩項物業合獲「磁帶大王」陳秉志、資深投資者林子峰等,以約13億元承接,回報率約5厘,而由於物業尚未完全租出,故尚有提升租金空間。

翻查資料,陳秉志及林子峰過往多年,先後多次向領展購入商場,包括大埔運頭塘塘商場、將軍澳翠林商場等,合共涉及十多個商場,如今再增購相關物業。

過去林子峰購入的商場,多進行車位拆售,如2014年以3.18億元向領展購入屯門兆麟苑商場及車位,於2015年拆售,全數449個車位短時間內沽清,套現約3.42億元,已高於整項物業購入價。

帳面平手離場 惟蝕1億印花稅

2016年,領展標售5項商場,分布於青衣長康、荃灣石圍角、葵涌安蔭、大圍新田圍等商場,結果全數售出。其中鄧成波以7.33億及5.628億元,投得石圍角商場及安蔭商場,合共涉約13億元。如今5年後以13億元轉售給陳秉志,帳面平手離場。不過,由於當年購入兩項商場需付雙倍印花稅,故蝕約1.1億元。

舖王鄧成波於5月突離世,其後家族成員加快沽貨步伐,單計近一星期,集團已沽出多項大額物業,包括分別以約17億及7億元,沽出屯門東亞紗廠工業大廈及粉嶺勉勵龍中心,由中資物業中心承接。另外,集團亦以約4億元,售出九龍城聯合道2至16號舊樓地盤7成業權,若連同沽出的各區舖位、分層工廈等,近一個多月家族已沽出近70億元物業。

大樓面舖位呎價低 吸長綫投資者

舖位交投保持平穩,而市場紛錄大樓面舖位成交。由於大樓面舖位呎價較低,風險較低,故成長綫投資者較穩健之選。

近月商舖買賣頗理想,而大樓面舖位承接力理想。其中鰂魚涌英皇道1060號栢蕙苑高層地下商舖,以2.6億元易手。該舖面積約20,277平方呎,目前由幼稚園及超級市場租用,呎價1.3萬元。

據了解,該舖位由麥當勞快餐店持有,集團早於1989年,以1.5億元購入該廈高層地下及低層地下,高層地下曾租予健身中心,而低層地下作快餐店自用,如今售出一直收租的商舖樓面。

麥當勞2.6 沽栢蕙苑巨舖

翻查資料,麥當勞於2019年中委託外資測量師行放售旗下6個物業,市值高達15億,最貴重為為尖沙咀星光行地下1及2號鋪,市值約10億。

另外,油尖旺錄大樓面舖位成交,包括佐敦庇利金街42號地下及1樓,以約7,200萬元易手。物業面積合共約6,180平方呎,現由餐廳等租用,月租約18萬元,回報率約3厘。原業主於2013年舖市高峰期以8,500萬元購入,持貨8年轉手,蝕約1,300萬元離場。

鄧成波家族 8100萬沽酒樓舖

頻頻沽貨的鄧成波家族,亦連環沽出旺角大樓面舖位,包括以約8,100萬沽出油麻地新填地街142至144號地下至2樓酒樓舖位,面積合共約8,030平方呎,物業由酒樓以每月18.7萬元租用。業主原叫價約8,500萬元,減價約5%沽出。據悉該物業早於1992年以約600萬元購入,持貨29年轉手,獲利約7,500萬元離場。另外,旗下荃灣楊屋道118號立坊地舖連1樓,地舖面積4,492平方呎,而1樓約5,088平方呎,合共約9,580平方呎,以約1.2億元沽出。

至於非核心區方面,沙田京瑞廣場連錄兩鋪位成交,涉資約3.1億元,包括2期一地舖,面積約6,743平方呎,以1.82億元售出,呎價約26,991元,鋪位由食肆以37萬承租,回報率約2.4厘。同廈另一地舖,面積3,223平方呎,以1.28億元易手。

分析指,隨着疫情緩和,市民外出消費興趣提高,商舖租售價亦止跌回穩,加上整體投資氣氛轉好,商舖買賣明顯增加。大樓面舖位勝在呎價相對便宜,涉及約1萬至2萬元,風險較低,而租客多為民生相關,受疫情下旅客減少的衝擊較細,故吸引長綫投資者承接。

工商舖5月錄632宗買賣

投資氣氛轉好,統計指,5月工商舖買賣錄632宗成交,按月回落約9%。

代理表示,工商舖旺勢持續,料單月略為整固後,6月及第3季均繼續看好。根據代理行的資料所得,2021年5月全港共錄得632宗工商舖物業買賣登記 (數字主要反映2至4星期前市場實際狀況),較4月的693宗回落9%,但仍處於近24個月的次高水平,且連續3個月錄逾600宗,為2018年第4季以來 (即逾兩年半) 最旺的市況;至於月內買賣合約總值錄得76.89億元,按月下跌42%,主要是月內逾億元的大額登記有所減少。

按工商舖3個物業類別劃分,工廈按月登記量維持最多,續處逾300宗的相對高位波動。5月全月工廈錄得351宗登記,按月跌8%,佔整體工商舖成交達55.5%。

商廈買賣登記量表現繼續穩中向好,錄得連續3個月的升勢,反映經濟好轉,對商廈市道有支持,刺激5月份商廈買賣登記共錄127宗,按月再升2%。

至於店舖買賣登記量方面,經過連月大升後,5月份略為回氣,但仍處於近34個月的三甲位置,料後市續反覆向好。5月份店舖錄得154宗登記,按月減少17%,為工商舖中跌幅最大的類別。

經濟復甦 投資者入市信心增

該代理指出,工商舖整體登記量已連續3個月企穩在逾600至近700宗的水平,料6月份仍可承接如此旺勢,市場亦已確認目前是落注及加碼的好時機。受惠疫情轉緩及疫苗持續接種,通關之日又邁進一大步;加上整體經濟復甦,失業及破產情況有改善,相信可加強投資者入市信心,配合8月份消費券推出料可進一步帶旺消費市道,因此預期本月及第3季工商舖將可看高一綫。

Property prices flirt with record highs

Hong Kong's property prices in May were just 0.8 percent away from their peak, as developer TDS released a price list for flats at Poho starting at HK$32,000 per square foot.

The private domestic price indices rose 0.64 percent last month to 393.7 points, a 23-month high, according to data from the Rating and Valuation Department.

The index has risen for five consecutive months, rising 1.97 percent year-on-year. It hit a record high of 396.9 points in May 2019.

Prices of property with an area of 431 sq ft or below is already at a record high of 439.9 points, 0.05 percent higher than the previous peak, and some analysts expect overall property prices to hit a new high very soon.

Property agency expects property prices to hit a record high in July.

Another property agency predicts property prices will rise 5 percent in the next half of the year. If the border reopens earlier in the second half of the year, increase in property prices may reach 13-15 percent.

Meanwhile, another property agency expects property price to hit a record high in the third quarter but the rental return will remain low. The rental indices rose 0.28 percent month-on-month to 177.9 points.

In the primary market, TDS unveiled a price list for 42 Tung St in Poho, with the first eight simplex units ranging from HK$32,889 to HK$38,889 per sq ft after discounts.

The average price per sq ft for the eight 585-sq-ft flats is HK$35,968 after discounts.

The cheapest two-bedroom flat on level six costs HK$19.24 million while the most expensive unit in the batch is worth HK$22.75 million after discounts.

The remaining five flats, including four 1,157-sq-ft duplex units, will be sold by tender from August 1 to September 30.

The 23-story tower is a six-minute walk away from the Sheung Wan Station and a 15-minute walk from Central Station.

It is expected to be completed at the end of September 2022.

Meanwhile, a potential buyer of a 359-sq-ft flat in The Pavilia Farm III in Tai Wai forfeited a deposit of HK$430,000 after canceling a one-bedroom deal.

The Pavilia Farm III has recorded six forfeited cases.

In other news, the one-month Hong Kong Interbank Offered Rate rose 0.37 points to 0.09286 percent, a two-month high.

Hong Kong property market to remain resilient even in the midst of exodus, REDA chief Keith Kerr says

Positive uptrend in the property market to continue for the rest of the year, barring any unforeseen circumstances, says Keith Kerr, president of REDA

Property prices, which have increased 3.1 per cent so far this year, could clock gains of between 5 and 10 per cent for the full year, property agent says

Hong Kong is unlikely to see a significant impact on housing demand from the growing emigration wave, according to the president of the Real Estate Developers Association of Hong Kong (REDA), joining a chorus of market observers who expect prices to continue rising this year.

“I know some people are leaving, but some people are moving here to Hong Kong,” said Keith Kerr, president of REDA and a former chairman and chief executive at Swire Properties. “For every person moving out, there’s probably at least the same number, if not more people coming in, so I don’t think that really is going to affect demand in the medium to longer term.”

There would be “a positive uptrend for the rest of the year, barring any unforeseen circumstances” as the market is relatively strong at the moment, said Kerr, who set up his boutique property firm known as The Development Studio (TDS) after he retired from Swire in 2009.

“The economy is picking up, stock market is active, and I think the demand for residential accommodation will remain strong,” he added.

Since the introduction of the national security law in June last year, many Hongkongers have been looking to move overseas to escape what they perceive to be the erosion of certain freedoms by an increasingly bold and assertive Beijing. The number of applications for certificates required for visas, and withdrawals of Mandatory Provident Fund savings on the grounds of permanent departure from Hong Kong has risen in recent months.

But the exodus will probably not translate into a slowdown in the housing market, analysts said.

In fact, sentiment in Hong Kong’s property market has improved over the past few months amid a brightening economic outlook, falling unemployment rate as the coronavirus pandemic in the city has largely been brought under control.

An index measuring secondary home prices rose 0.6 per cent in May to a 23-month high of 393.7, a mere 0.8 per cent from its May 2019 historical peak, according to data released by the Rating and Valuation Department this week.

US investments banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are bullish on the city’s property prices. Goldman said in a June 4 report that it expected a 5 per cent rise this year given the low interest rates and an improving economy. Morgan Stanley was slightly more restrained in its report released in April, forecasting a 3 per cent rise this year.

With residential property prices having already risen 3.1 per cent so far this year, according to data from the Rating and Valuation Department, property consultants expect prices to rise further.

“If we can control the Covid-19 situation, the full-year increase will be between 5 and 10 per cent,” property agent said.

Another agencies which are two of the city’s biggest property agencies, also expect home prices to rise to new highs as the current levels are marginally below the peak in 2019.

Separately, Kerr’s TDS on Monday announced the pricing of its 42 Tung St. residential project, near Central. The 23-storey building, comprising only 13 apartments – nine simplex and four duplex units, will be ready in September next year.

The company said it would sell eight simplex units of 585 sq ft each at prices ranging from HK$19.24 million (US$2.48 million) to HK$22.75 million, or HK$32,889 to HK$38,889 per square foot after discounts.

TDS plans to sell the four duplex units measuring 1,157 sq ft and a 346 sq ft simplex unit by tender from August 1.

Agent said that Swire Properties sold homes in its nearby Eight Star Street project at about $40,000 psf, with some fetching as much as HK$50,000 psf.

Kerr’s first residential development project with TDS was 28 Aberdeen St. in Sheung Wan in 2017. He said that project gave the firm the experience to deal with the complexities of undertaking a project like 42 Tung St. on a small site. Its difficulty was “not in the building process”, but regulatory issues and securing approvals for matters such as traffic flow.

“Real estate development in Hong Kong is a complicated business, especially in the urban areas, so it did take time to get a few issues resolved,” Kerr said. “But now we’re [already building] the 15th floor, so we’re well under construction for completion next year.”

Hong Kong’s second-hand home prices soar to a 23-month high as property bull run feeds on cheap money

An index of lived-in home prices rose to a 23-month high in May, a mere 0.8 per cent from its historical peak, according to government data

Prices of second-hand homes smaller than 431 square feet (40 square metres) increased 1.1 per cent last month to a record

Housing affordability, one of the issues fuelling political strife in Hong Kong over the past few years, is rearing its head again as low interest rates fuel a speculative real estate frenzy while the economy grapples with budding signs of recovery from a pandemic-led recession.

An index measuring the prices of all lived-in homes rose 0.6 per cent in May to a 23-month high of 393.7, a mere 0.8 per cent from its May 2019 historical peak, according to data released by the Rating and Valuation Department. Prices of second-hand homes smaller than 431 square feet (40 square metres) increased 1.1 per cent last month to a record 439.9, from a year ago.

The latest data shows how Hong Kong’s housing market has regained its footing from the street protests of 2019 and the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 to resume its bull run, as the trillions of dollars of low-interest capital unleashed by global central banks have found their way into fixed assets. Several new property projects such as New World Development’s The Pavilia Farm III project in Tai Wai and Henderson Land Development’s The Upper South in Ap Lei Chau were snapped up by buyers when they launched.

“Market sentiment has improved now,” property agent said. “Supply is not high in the secondary market, so small homes have shown the most significant increases as [they appeal to] the mass market, with the strongest demand. Usually this happens in a rising market.”

Transactions of second-hand homes could top 5,500 in June, the fourth consecutive month for more than 5,000 residences to change hands, according to another property agency, which shows how the property bull market has extended into the lived-in segment. That’s also the longest streak of increases since November 2012.

The market’s momentum could also stretch into June and July, with this month’s price index expected to rise by 1 per cent.

“A lot of capital has flowed into the physical assets market under quantitative easing because that is relatively more stable, with [better] prospect for appreciation,” the agent said, adding that June’s index is likely to set a record.

The increase in the second half of 2021 is likely to be around 5 per cent, adding to the full-year total of about 10 per cent, the agent said. The increase may even widen to between 13 and 15 per cent, if Hong Kong’s northern border with mainland China were to reopen, which would open the doors for mainland Chinese investors to return to the city’s real estate market.

“Everyone is optimistic that in the longer-term, home prices will rise, so the capital keeps flowing into the housing market, promoting continued increases in property prices,” the agent said, adding that the increases are too mild to prompt any intervention by the Hong Kong authorities. Local authorities across mainland China had been imposing market cooling measures from cracking down on fake divorces to putting caps on loans to control runaway prices.

Historically, Hong Kong’s government would not resort to cooling measures unless the price index were to rise by more than 2 per cent over two consecutive months, he said. Local authorities don’t have many measures at their disposal to tame increasing prices anyway, the agent said.

上半年工商鋪暫錄3623宗


疫情稍趨放緩,上半年工商鋪暫錄3623宗。代理預期,隨着交投暢旺,下半年料價格升5%至15%。

代理指出,疫情逐步受控,為工商鋪市場釋出正面訊息,上半年暫錄3623宗工商鋪成交,總金額約722.83億,分別較去年下半年升32%及10%,隨着交投暢旺,下半年料價格升5%至15%,惟核心區鋪租備受壓力,料下半年租金跌約5%,惟實際走勢需視乎疫情發展。

代理指出,工廈上半年錄約4567宗成交,料下半年租售價升約10%。 代理稱,上半年寫字樓錄579宗買賣,較去年同期升1.15倍,料下半年租售價升約5%。該行於下半年將擴充人手約15%至20%,以該行涉700人員計,涉約140人,同時逐步擴充分行數量。

代理:甲廈租金按季跌3.5%

另一代理行發表最新香港寫字樓租賃市場報告指出,甲廈租金今年第二季跌2.6%,較首季按季跌3.5%。整體甲廈空置率續升至9.3%,空置樓面達570萬呎,主因港島供應增加所帶動,該區空置率由7.4%上升至8.0%,中環空置率季內由7.6%微跌至7.5%,灣仔及銅鑼灣空置率則升至10.8%,是自2003年3月以來新高。代理指,雖然空置率上升令租金受壓,但準備首次公開招股的公司數量創新紀錄,財富管理服務續見增長,加上中資企業租賃持續活躍,為寫字樓帶來一定支持。

兩商場回報料四厘變八厘 「磁帶大王」陳秉志13億承接斥巨資翻新

近年頻沽貨減磅的「磁帶大王」陳秉志,近日斥13億購入葵涌及荃灣商場,他表示,將兩個商場翻新後重新招租,料回報由現時逾4厘提升至8厘,並指市況由谷底反彈,最差情況已成過去。

「鋪王」鄧成波家族以13億出售葵涌安蔭商場及荃灣石圍角商場,買家為陳秉志,陳表示,將斥資逾1億重新打造兩個商場,提升各項設施,除了翻新店鋪外,商場內傳統街市將變摩登,乾淨且擁有冷氣設施,料改造完成,租金收益由4.8厘提升至8厘。他並表示,該兩商場車場不能拆售,將持有作長綫收租。

「料市況谷底回升」

他看好後市,指目前香港疫情穩定,有望隨時與內地通關,經濟亦正在復甦,再者,隨着國安法落實,相信不會再有政治事件及動亂情況出現,因此,後市絕對可以看好。

儘管在一年多以來,陳秉志大手沽售物業,包括中環中心單位,鋪位及豪宅等,北角柯達中心亦曾推出放售,不過,他說,柯達中心屬全幢物業,他早已封盤不賣,目前集中沽售「瑣碎」項目,希望在重新整合後,只集中持有大型物業。

集中持有大型物業

葵涌安蔭商場樓高2層,總樓面約40889方呎,地下設有街市,租客為民生行業,出租率約77%,月租約218.4萬,石圍角商場總樓面約13.2萬方呎,亦包括街市,商場內不乏由超市、麥當勞快餐店等大租客,出租率約79%,月租約314.5萬。兩商場均設有停車場,分別提供355及578個車位,合共933個。

領展於2016年標售5項商場,火炭穗禾苑、青衣長康、荃灣石圍角、葵涌安蔭、大圍新田圍等,悉數售出,當時,鄧成波以7.33億及5.628億投得石圍角商場及安蔭商場,涉合共約13億,現時以13億轉售予陳秉志,帳面平手離場。

九龍灣國際展貿中心料重建地標式甲廈

近年九龍灣陸續有不少工廈重建成商廈,將會釋放出約535.5萬平方呎商業樓面供應,最新由億京合組的財團收購的九龍灣國際展貿中心,料會重建為區內地標甲廈。

新增逾535呎商業樓面

九龍灣為傳統工業區,以往有多座工廈落成,其後再有不少商廈落戶該區,計入最新九龍灣國際展貿中心的重建項目,料將來九龍灣可提供約535.5萬平方呎商業樓面。

九龍灣國際展貿中心位於九龍灣展貿徑1號,樓高14層,地盤面積約23.98萬平方呎,總樓面面積約177.5萬平方呎,現為集會議、展覽、商場、寫字樓的綜合式物業,其中較為人所知的是場地不時會舉行大型演唱會及會議等,而由億京合組的財團近日落實以約105億元收購項目,以目前可建樓面計,平均呎價約5,900元。

億京早前表示,集團計劃將項目建成區內的甲級地標式商廈,涉及投資額約200億元,集團解釋,為了避免補地價程序,令重建步伐更具效率,加上將建築密度處於低水平,他們計劃維持原有的地積比率,換言之,項目重建後的總樓面將與現址相同。

啟匯已批建逾68萬呎商廈

至於鄰近九龍灣、牛頭角之間的九龍灣行動區、臨澤街8號啟匯 (前稱傲騰廣場),去年獲批出建築圖則,並將重建為商廈,涉約68萬平方呎總樓面。項目於2018年由「重慶李嘉誠」張松橋及資本策略 (00497) 等斥約80億元購入,樓齡約10年。

事實上,比鄰的的嘉里 (九龍灣) 危險品貨倉,於2012年曾獲批重建為216個豪宅單位。不過,嘉里 (00683) 於2019年底向城規會申請將地積比率由9.5倍放寬至11.4倍,擬建26層高商廈,涉及總樓面約52.7萬平方呎。

另外,早於1980年代建成的業安工廠大廈,近日亦有指將會面臨清拆,並重建為公屋,預計2022年11月會正式拆卸。香港房屋委員會旗下的業安工廠大廈位於宏開道,由兩座大廈組成,比鄰富臨中心其士商業中心,亦鄰近私人屋苑德福花園。

保柏洽租觀塘海濱匯 呎租約25

原租鰂魚涌九龍灣商廈 搬遷省租質素升

甲廈租務仍以企業搬遷節省成本為主,醫療保險集團保柏,洽租觀塘海濱道海濱匯約9萬平方呎樓面,呎租約25元,集團原租用鰂魚涌太古坊及九龍灣,是次搬遷可省租金及提升質素。

市場消息指,東九龍海濱匯得大手洽租個案,涉及物業6樓全層,以及7樓部分樓面,面積合共達9萬平方呎,每呎約25元,較高峰呎租約33元,下跌逾兩成。

較高峰呎租33 跌逾2

市場人士透露,洽租的企業為醫療保險集團保柏,該集團目前租用鰂魚涌太古坊柏克大廈,另集團亦於九龍灣宏天廣場租用樓面,是次大手洽租海濱匯樓面,可整合業務,而可節省租金不算多,惟海濱匯屬全新海景甲廈,故質素可提升。

疫情下甲廈新租務需求疲弱,甲廈的租務個案,主要來自企業搬遷,以節省成本或整合業務,而東九龍新甲廈質素高而租金較便宜,吸引客人搬遷。最近海濱匯連錄租務成交,包括9樓一單位,面積約2萬平方呎,獲英國超市Sainsbury's租用,屬同區搬遷兼縮減業務,另同層約3.6萬平方呎樓面,獲新傳媒集團租用。若最終保柏落實租用,該廈於月內便錄得近15萬平方呎樓面租務。

另外,有代理表示,鄧成波家族以約13億元,沽出葵涌安蔭商場及荃灣石圍角商場,新買家為投資者林子峰及陳秉志,安蔭商場位於葵涌安足街7號,實用面積逾4萬平方呎,及355個車位;石圍角商場位於荃灣石圍角路3號,面積逾13.2萬平方呎,其停車場提供578個車位。

甲廈租金次季仍跌2.6%

有代理最新香港寫字樓租賃市場報告指出,隨着市場氣氛輕微改善,縮減規模及棄租個案減少,甲級寫字樓租金於第二季下跌2.6%,較首季的3.5%跌幅為低。

期內,中環、灣仔/銅鑼灣及港島東的租金分別下跌2.8%、3%及2.6%,港島整體租金按季跌2.8%,是自2020年首季以來的最低季度跌幅;九龍租金微跌2.4%,對租客來說仍較為相宜,尖沙咀、九龍東及九龍西的租金分別下跌1.8%、4.2%及2.9%。

報告預料,本港寫字樓租金於今年下半年的跌勢將有所放緩,但2022年及2023年的供應增加將為租金再添壓力。

中資企業需求仍然非常集中於核心商務區,尤以金融及專業服務行業的租戶為甚;同時也有愈來愈多租戶心儀國際金融中心太古廣場等大型混合用途物業。據代理估算,在2017年7月中環甲廈當中有20.5%的樓面由中資企業租用,今年6月更上升至23.5%。

不過,本港整體寫字樓空置率續升至9.3%,空置樓面達570萬方呎。空置率上升主要受到港島供應增加所帶動,該區的空置率由7.4%上升至8%。

工商舖低潮期結束 下半年料漲價15%

資金泛濫,加上工商舖物業價格出現調整,令用家及投資者重回市場。有代理預期,下半年工商舖市況樂觀,成交宗數將較上半年增加25%至約4500宗,買賣價亦會相應上升5%至15%。

代理表示,疫情緩和,工商舖市場自去年第四季開始見起色,2021上半年暫錄約3623宗工商舖買賣,總成交金額約722.83億元,較去年下半年分別多約32%及10%。

代理估成交撲4500

近期大額成交表現相當理想,工商舖市場低潮期已結束,正慢慢步入升勢,預測下半年工商舖成交宗數有約25%增長,至約4500宗。買賣價方面,預計商舖售價看高一線,下半年料升10%至15%;工廈售價升一成,商廈漲幅在5%以內。

租金方面,工廈及商廈租金有約5%至10%升幅。核心區個別商舖租金料輕微跌幅約5%;非核心區將平穩向上約5%至10%。

市場大手成交頻現,另一代,理指出,投資者林子峰及陳秉志以13億元購入荃灣石圍角商場及葵涌安蔭商場,兩個商場的出租率均接近八成,租金回報約4.9厘。

上述兩項物業由資深投資者「舖王」鄧成波家族於2016年底斥資約12.96億元向領展 (00823) 購入,賬面微利離場,料須蝕使費。

東涌商地延至年底售 改寫字樓比例

政府在2021至2022財政年度 (下稱本財政年度) 第一季度 (4月至6月) 接連推售銅鑼灣及中環兩幅大型商業用地後,於第二季度 (7月至9月,下稱下季) 無計劃推出更多商業地皮,原先打算在下季推出的東涌第57區商用地,有機會延至今年底才招標。

東涌第57區商業地皮原屬本財政年度賣地表中上半年度 (即4月至9月) 供應的用地,最終未有在季內推出。發展局局長黃偉綸解釋,該東涌地皮正進行內部考慮,或調整辦公室與商場的樓面發展比率,不排除於第四季才登場。

中環新海濱3號最遲11月開標

上述東涌第57區商業地皮於去年9月推出招標、10月截標,可建總樓面面積約126.13萬方呎,有近91%樓面須作寫字樓發展,最終收到3份標書,因未到價而流標收場。

黃偉綸表示,由於已批出的銅鑼灣加路連山道用地,以及剛截標的中環新海濱3號用地,共可提供約269.1萬方呎樓面面積,故未來沒有計劃推出更多商業用地,但政府會繼續密切注意市場情況,適時推售商業用地。至於中環地皮,因採用「雙信封」形式招標,審議需時,預計今年11月才公布結果。

此外,土地共享計劃現正有10個項目進行前期交流,估計今年內收到正式申請,屆時會公布相關土地的地點、面積及房屋供應數量等詳情。

Land sale targets 5,400 homes in new quarter

Land supply from July to September will provide 5,400 residential units in total, says the Secretary for Development Michael Wong Wai-lun, a relatively high level in a single quarter in recent years.

The Development Bureau announced the July-September land sale plan yesterday.

The government will launch tenders on two residential sites, at 79 Broadcast Drive in Kowloon Tong and the junction of Lau Yip Street and Chung Yip Road in Yuen Long, offering 200 units. Surveyors estimated the valuation of the two sites at HK$1.51 billion.

Compared to 980 units in the previous quarter, the government land supply is down 80 percent.

Another 1,150 units will come from the Urban Renewal Authority's Bailey Street/Wing Kwong Street redevelopment.

The Tung Chung Traction Substation project of the MTR Corporation (0066) will contribute 1,600 units.

Four private development projects, which are expected to complete the lease modifications, will provide 2,450 units. The four projects include three in the New Territories and one in the urban area, said Wong.

The largest one could offer 1,800 residential units.

Together with the 1,650 units from April to June, the total land supply was 7,050 units, reaching 55 percent of the government target.

Wong is cautiously optimistic about meeting the target of providing 12,900 units in 2021/2022.

The proportion of government, MTR and URA projects accounting for the overall land supply is only 55 percent for the new quarter.

No commercial sites will be launched as two large-scale sites - on Caroline Hill Road in Causeway Bay and commercial site 3 of the New Central Harbourfront - are expected to have a tender result in November.

The government is considering adjusting the ratio of offices and malls at a commercial site in Tung Chung which had been rejected as the tendered premiums did not meet the reserve price, said Wong. It may be launched in the fourth fiscal quarter.

The government is rezoning five commercial sites in Kowloon East for residential use and Wong expects it could offer 6,000 units after rezoning. The sites may be launched in the next fiscal year.

On the Land Sharing Pilot Scheme, Wong pointed out that 10 projects are being discussed and expects a consortium will apply officially this year.

In response to the hot property market, Wong said the government will continue to launch land to meet the demand.

HK's southern district enjoys surge in flats

Kerry Properties (0683) and Sino Land (0083) named The Southside phase II as La Marina, offering 600 units.

Located above the Wong Chuk Hang Station, La Marina composes of two residential buildings and provides a total of 600 units.

The saleable area ranges from 320 square feet to 1,901 sq ft, with anywhere from one to four-bedroom units.

Although it is still pending the pre-sale consent, the developers said the project will be launched right after the approval and the pricing will refer to the properties in the same district.

Meanwhile, the transaction of luxury flats in the Southern District was driven by the sales of South Land in Wong Chuk Hang.

A 1,949-sq-ft flat in Marinella is selling for HK$91 million, or HK$46,691 per sq ft - the highest in the project.

The four-bedroom double suite unit was purchased by the original owner at HK$53.9 million in 2011, with the unit price surging 68 percent over the last decade.

A 1,409-sq-ft flat in Oasis Kai Tak was sold for HK$52.46 million, or HK$37,230 per sq ft, after the former potential buyer cancelled the deal.

The transaction record showed that the unit was sold for HK$51.43 million in May. However, the previous buyer didn't sign the provisional agreement for sale and purchase and forfeited the deposit.

This new transaction price is approximately 2 percent higher than the last transaction.

Eric Ng Kam-lun, known as Ken Sir, bought an 818-sq-ft unit in The Harbourside at HK$24.5 million. The founder of Modern Education had to pay for a 4.25 percent Ad Valorem Stamp Duty of over HK$1.04 million. He was able to pay a lower stamp duty rate due to his "first home buyer" status.

Hong Kong’s housing land supply shrinks to 10-year low, setting the stage for home prices to spiral in one of the world’s costliest cities

The city’s government will release two sites capable of accommodating 200 flats for sale in the fiscal second quarter starting on July 1

Total housing supply could top 7,050 units this fiscal year, inclusive of 5,200 new flats and 1,650 units from the first quarter

Hong Kong’s supply of residential land is shrinking to a 10-year low, as the local government runs out of usable plots for building homes, in a situation that may set the stage for property prices to rise further and fuel public grief in one of the world’s least affordable urban centres.

The city’s government will release two sites capable of accommodating 200 flats for sale in the fiscal second quarter starting on July 1, according to Hong Kong’s Secretary for Development Michael Wong, similar to the same period last year when land supply was just enough to build 160 flats.

With the dismal supply, local authorities will have to turn to the subway operator MTR Corporation, the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) and private developers for new homes to meet demand in the city of 7.5 million people. Total housing supply could top 7,050 units this fiscal year, inclusive of 5,200 new flats from other sources and 1,650 units from the first quarter, bringing the total to about 55 per cent of the target of 12,900 apartments.

“It is shocking” for land supply to plunge to such a level, analyst said, adding that developers could slow their conversion of farmland or industrial parcels into housing during bull markets to create supply volatility. “It is not a good sign as we are heavily reliant on private developers who are primarily profit-driven, instead of helping the government meet the housing supply target.”

“Hong Kong’s sky-high home prices will further frustrate the younger generation, and may even drive some to leave the city as their chances of getting on the housing ladder remains slim,” the analyst said.

Rising property prices increase the cost of acquiring land, and raise the payable land premium for converting unused land into housing, which all add to catalogue prices in one of the priciest cities to live and work in on Earth.

The first site to be released is in Yuen Long. The second plot is at 79 Broadcast Drive in Kowloon Tong, currently occupied by the RTHK Education Television Centre. The two plots are expected to yield a total of about 200 flats, valued at up to HK$2.31 billion (US$297.5 million), according to property agency.

The MTR, URA and private developers are expected to provide 5,200 flats in the three months starting in July, comprising 1,600 units by the MTR in Tung Chung, 1,150 by the URA in To Kwa Wan and 2,450 by private developers in the New Territories and elsewhere.

Hong Kong’s housing affordability had been described by China’s central government as a “deep-seated problem,” one that prompted Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor to raise the allocation of the city’s land supply for public housing to 70 per cent in 2018, from 60 per cent.

Still, that increase in land supply failed to stop the upwards spiral of median home prices, which are poised to touch a record over the next two months, after briefly stumbling last year amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The prices of lived-in homes extended a five-month rally in May and were at their highest since July 2019, according to Rating and Valuation Department data. They were also within 0.8 per cent of a historic high recorded in May 2019, before anti-government protests kicked off in the city.

The supply of Hong Kong's private housing land increasingly relies on developers, who contribute to 2,450 homes, or 45 per cent of the total in the fiscal second quarter, said Ryan Ip, head of land and housing research at the Our Hong Kong Foundation think tank.

The proportion of supply controlled by the government is only 55 per cent, lower than the 67 to 80 per cent in the last three years, reflecting the diminishing supply of mature land held by the government, Ip said.

“If the government can provide 5,400 units per quarter, home prices can stabilise,” said Wheelock Properties’ managing director Ricky Wong, adding that stable prices is “the ideal situation for everyone in the city, not just Beijing’s wishes.”

“The housing market has been recovering and strong demand can absorb the supply and the market will be in equilibrium,” Wong said.

For now, the city government is “cautiously optimistic” about meeting the supply targets, the Development Secretary Wong said during a press conference.
