中環中心呎租65元低20% 地產投資公司進駐


甲廈逐步走出疫情陰霾,市場頻錄承租個案,惟租金仍彈升乏力。由外號「磁帶大王」陳秉志持有的中環中心高層單位,新獲地產投資公司以每呎約65元承租,低市價近20%。

上址為中環中心67樓5室,建築面積約2264方呎,景觀以山景為主,外望少量海景,新以每呎約65元租出,月租約147160元,租戶為地產投資公司。

「磁帶大王」陳秉志持有

陳秉志接受本報查詢,證實單位已租出,他並表示,疫情走勢持續穩定,市場已逐步走出第五波陰霾,料整體市況逐步向好,中港兩地一旦通關,估計市場有力迅速復甦。

然而,據大型工商鋪代理行資料顯示,該甲廈高層近期呎租均高見每呎80元以上,其中,該廈高層10室於上月以每呎約80元租出,月租約198960元,若以市值呎租約80元計,上址最新租金低市價約近兩成。

中保集團大廈高層每呎29元租出

此外,中環區內商廈亦頻錄承租,其中,中保集團大廈高層10室,屬海景優質戶,建築面積1030方呎,新以每呎約29.1元租出,月租約29973元,上一手租金為每呎約33元,故最新租金下跌約12%。據地產代理指出,上址業主於1988年以179萬購入,以最新租金計,回報高約20厘水平。

同區蘭桂坊1號亦錄承租個案,該甲廈低層單位,建築面積約917方呎,新以每呎約43元租出,月租約39431元。

油塘曦臺商場月租高達135萬 區內今年最大宗租賃 啟迪教育開設國際學校

東九龍錄大手鋪位租賃,啟迪教育集團承租油塘曦臺商場,以開辦國際學校,涉及總面積約49600方呎,租期超過10年,平均月租135萬,為東九龍今年以來最大宗商鋪租賃,平均呎租約27元。

啟迪教育集團承租油塘曦臺商場,涉及地下,1樓及2樓所有商業樓面,總面積約49600方呎,十年租金總額高達1.62億,為期逾10年,平均月租135萬,為東九龍今年以來最大宗商鋪租賃,平均呎租為27元。

總面積約4.96萬方呎

啟迪教育集團創辦人兼校長祁文迪表示,將以全新概念發展國際學校中學部,以開辦一諾中學 (Inno Secondary School),是一所為七至十三年級學生提供全日制課程的私立學校,集團曾考慮選址中環及奧運站等,最後落實油塘區,鍾情區內環境及配套,運動場、圖書館及行山景點,適宜辦學校,招生反應不俗,首階段全校6個年級,合共收生不多於60人,部分年級滿額,目前已錄取學生當中,半數為本港學生,四成來自內地,約一成為外國學生,每年學費18.8萬。

租約為期逾10

他又指,集團目標為5年後全校學生增至500人,3至5年開辦小學及幼稚園部,8至10年覓地建永久校舍。儘管近年不少外國人士離港,無礙國際學校運作,該校七成職員來自海外,之前招聘時,共有150位外籍教師來應徵者,最終6人獲聘,來自英國、比利時及南非等地。

有外資代理行表示,隨着疫情進一步緩和,整體鋪市空置率漸回落,民生區商場空置率由2020年第四季5.4%,改善至2021年第四季4%。民生區商場租金於2021年第四季按年跌0.2%,跌幅較去年收窄。該代理認為現在鋪市已見底,預期未來市況改善。

宏安地產行政總裁鄧灝康指出,曦臺為宏安地產和旭輝合作發展,有關租賃是東九龍今年以來最大宗的,有助推動油塘新住宅區發展。旭輝控股海外投資及融資總監吳輝揚表示,夥拍宏安地產發展曦臺,住宅銷售反應熱烈,零售平台也覓得優質租客。

核心區鋪位空置率按月微升

有代理行指出,四大核心區於今年4月空置率錄全綫上升,幅度介乎0.05%至0.16%,惟按年比較錄大幅下跌。

代理:按年比較皆大幅改善

有代理表示,今年4月各大核心區鋪位空置率走勢平穩,個別區份微升,與上月比較,差幅由約0.05%至0.16%,但按年各區表現則大見轉好。4月份中環商鋪空置率錄約13.60%,按月微升約0.06%,按年同期大幅回落約7.02%,屬最明顯的改善區域。其次為銅鑼灣,4月份錄到約5.40%,較3月份增添約0.05%,對比去年同期則明顯遞減5.12%。灣仔最新鋪位空置率為14.01%,按月提升約0.16%,按年比較就見下降約1.06%。

該代理續稱,尖沙嘴區按年變幅顯著下降,該區4月份商鋪空置率錄得10.47%,較3月份輕微上調0.09%,對比去年4月大幅減6.76%。旺角區商鋪空置率不變,4月份錄8.85%,按年遞減3%。

中環區表現佳 按年回落7.02%

該代理分析,雖然月內各區空置率略見微升,但整體表現對比一年前顯著改善,以餐飲業最進取,市場近期較矚目租務個案為銅鑼灣羅素街38號金朝陽中心地下A、B號及1樓,總面積約5200方呎,獲餐飲集團A La Carte預租以開設「變形金剛」主題餐廳,市傳成交月租約100萬,呎租約192元。

栢麗大道求「翻身」 申改食肆變打卡勝地

在疫情陰霾下,旅客量大減,昔日曾風光一時的尖沙咀栢麗購物大道亦要變陣,剛向城規會申請改劃為食肆及商店等用途,發展自助餐廳、咖啡室及茶室等,希望吸引更多人流到訪,成區內另一地標。

上述的申請範圍屬於彌敦道111至139號、143至161號及165至181號栢麗購物大道地下及1樓,地盤佔地約5.82萬平方呎,現劃為「休憩用地」用途,而申請人栢麗購物大道業主立案法團指,擬將該項目改劃為「食肆」及「商店及服務行業」,並以地積比率約1.41倍發展,計劃提供任何類型的商店及服務行業,及主要提供小食茶點的食肆,包括自助餐廳、咖啡室及茶室,總樓面涉約8.22萬平方呎。

值得留意的是,為減低對九龍公園環境及於彌敦道成齡樹 (即已長至接近最高生長高度的樹) 影響的風險,計劃建議為「食肆」用途設置「不超過50%總樓面面積」的限制。

代理:租戶組合可趨多元化

申請人認為,項目是構成香港歷史和特色重要的一部分,尤其是它所代表的香港經濟繁榮的形象。由於尖沙咀區的經濟環境轉變及旅遊購物者的減少,令店舖關閉及城市活力下降,因此建議從城市規劃方面取得一些彈性,以便日後將一些現有的零售商店轉變為更多樣化、更具特色的其他商業用途。

此外,申請人會為擬建項目增加趣味點/打卡位,以應對社會經濟和市場的變化,並可為此彌敦道最寬闊的一段提升公共空間的趣味性,供香港本地居民及遊客享用。

有代理指,目前項目的舖位商戶,主要為售賣服裝、電器及珠寶等,惟受到疫情、旅客遞減等因素影響,零售行業承租意慾減少,交吉情況亦相對嚴重,業主叫租價亦見克制。該代理相信,若改劃成功,令租戶組合更趨多元化,必可增加消費人流,令項目活起來,屆時舖價將有所提升。

4綫滙聚 帶動金鐘商業樓面需求

東鐵綫過海段於5月中旬正式通車,金鐘從此變成「超級轉車站」,成為4綫交滙的核心地帶,進一步提高其發展潛力及對該區商廈及商舖的需求。未來金鐘預計將有罕見的大型商業樓面供應,單計金鐘廊及高等法院用地,已將會為該區新增逾250萬平方呎的商業樓面。

兩商業項目 新增逾250萬呎樓面

屬於金鐘指標商場之一的金鐘廊,於多年前已經構思重建,而去年底政府正式就開展金鐘廊重建發展計劃的擬建道路工程刊憲。雖然擬建的道路工程因曾接反對意見,需按法例調解,但發展局去年曾表示,待法定程序完成後,局方將會適時把用地納入賣地表中。據市場推算,地皮最快有機會於1至2年內推出,估值高達逾280億至300億元,每平方呎樓面地價約2.8萬至3萬元。

金鐘廊用地規模頗大,實屬近年該區規模較大的商業樓面供應。據規劃署文件顯示,地皮計劃分兩部分發展,當中東面鄰近統一中心的地盤佔地約6.7萬平方呎,擬重建48層高商廈,其中38層為寫字樓,涉約86.2萬平方呎,而西面地盤 (即現有金鐘廊行人通道) 則會保留,提供約2.6萬平方呎餐飲及零售樓面,兩地盤合共提供逾100萬平方呎的商業樓面。在東鐵綫過海段通車後,相信亦有望進一步帶動日後的商舖及商廈成交。

高等法院用地 規模僅次中環海濱地王

而另一規模龐大的區內商業地供應,是位處金鐘廊對面的高等法院用地。該用地估計佔地約10萬平方呎,早年政府亦曾研究將其騰空,以作商業發展。如以地積比率15倍發展,將可提供多達150萬平方呎商業樓面,估計規模將僅次去年由恒地 (00012) 奪得的中環新海濱3號商業地王。

由於中環、金鐘一帶為本港的傳統商業核心地帶,而且地皮供應罕有,每逢一推售即吸引發展商競投,當中位於中環、金鐘交界有兩個重建項目最快明年落成,其中一個為美利道地王項目,發展商恒地早於2017年以每平方呎樓面地價約5萬元投得,並將重建成1座36層,另設5層地庫的甲級商廈,總樓面面積約46.5萬平方呎,並已命名為 The Henderson,將於2023年落成。另外,長實和記大廈重建項目長江集團中心二期亦將會重建1幢樓高約41層的商廈,總樓面面積涉逾49萬平方呎。

Wheelock gets three buildings in Staunton Street for $529m

Wheelock Properties acquired three residential buildings in Staunton Street in Sheung Wan at the reserve price of HK$529 million through a compulsory sale yesterday. 

The property, with a registered site area of approximately 4,333.55 square feet, is currently a pair of seven-story commercial/residential composite buildings completed in 1968, and Wah Yee Mansion, which is a sixstory complex completed in 1971, according to a property agency.

Caine Hill, a nearby new project developed by Henderson Land Development (0012), cost around HK$30,000 per sq ft when it was put on the market last year.

Managing director Ricky Wong Kwong-yiu said this was the company’s second site acquisition through compulsory sale this year, after No. 15 Ventris Road. 

The site, with a buildable area of 36,000 sq ft, will be developed into a prime residential project at the core of the central business district where supply is tight, he said, adding that the project may be put up for sale in three years.

On recent proposals about lowering the compulsory sale application threshold for old buildings, Wong welcomed new measures from the government which would help speed up urban renewal while ensuring fair treatment with regard to owners’ interest.

Commenting on the recent performance of the residential market, Wong said prices have begun to recover some of the lost ground in the second quarter, and the strong demand amid tight supply should ensure support for home prices, despite the onset of US rate hikes and other external factors.

In the primary market, Lohas Park phase 11B in Tseung Kwan O has been named Villa Garda I, which provides 592 homes.

The project is jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173), and China Merchants Land (0978).

K Wah said the project is pending presale consent and it has confidence that the sales will be launched next month.

In Tai Po, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said sales of 188 homes at phase 1 of Silicon Hill will take place on Friday, when the city celebrates the Dragon Boat Festival. On sale are 170 units on price lists and 18 via tender, the developer said. The 170 flats, with areas from 291 sq ft to 661 sq ft, are priced from HK$4.97 million to HK$11.35 million after discounts, or HK$16,006 to HK$20,254 per sq ft.

Show flats on way at Symphonie project

Henderson Land Development (0012) says the first batch of The Symphonie in Cheung Sha Wan will be unveiled next week at the earliest.

Sales brochures and show flats will also be ready by then, said Thomas Lam Tat-man, a general manager of Henderson's sales department.

The project provides 262 units ranging from 261 to 573 sq ft and 85 percent of them have one or two bedrooms, Lam said, adding that sales may take place this month.

In Tai Po, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said it has collected more than 2,200 checks for the 170 flats at phase 1 of Silicon Hill, meaning the homes are 12 times oversubscribed. The 170 flats, with areas from 291 sq ft to 661 sq ft, are priced from HK$4.97 million to HK$11.35 million after discounts. A total of 188 homes will be put on the market on Friday, including 170 units on price lists and 18 via tender.

Meanwhile, SHKP's project with CK Asset (1113) in Tuen Mun was named Grand Jete yesterday.

The 800-home project will be developed in two phases. The first, with 400 flats is expected to be launched this month, CK Asset said.

Golden Financial fails to sell Hong Kong skyscraper as it struggles to pay debt

Goldin Financial Holdings Ltd. said the sale of its eponymous Hong Kong skyscraper failed to complete in a blow to the embattled property firm’s attempts to repay debt.  

The agreement by receivers to sell the Goldin Financial Global Centre was terminated and the deposit paid by the purchaser was forfeited, according to a statement to the Hong Kong stock exchange. The company did not elaborate on why the deal was not completed.  

The office tower is at the heart of an asset grab by creditors as Goldin Financial struggles to make timely payments on its outstanding debt. The flagship building of tycoon Pan Sutong’s firm was seized by creditors in September 2020.  

The company had said in a filing in March that all outstanding loans and notes will be satisfied if the transaction is completed. 

The building is estimated to have a value of around HK$10 billion (US$1.3 billion), local media reported earlier. The 27-story super grade A office located in Kowloon Bay includes a single floor area of around 35,000 square feet, according to the company’s website. 

Goldin Financial was informed by the purchaser that it will dispute the alleged wrongful termination, and the deal will be subject to the outcome of the legal proceedings, according to the statement. 

Shares of Goldin Financial have been suspended in Hong Kong since April 1 after it failed to publish earnings ahead of the March 31 deadline.

Hong Kong education group signs US$20.6 million lease to open its first international school in Kowloon East

Innovative Education Group has leased nearly 50,000 sq ft of space in the retail podium at Maya by Nouvelle residential project in Yau Tong

The school will offer an international curriculum for students from grades seven to 13 from September 1, says founder Thomas Qi

A Hong Kong-based education group plans to open its first international school in Kowloon East, after signing a leasing deal worth at least HK$162 million (US$20.6 million) over 10 years on Tuesday.

Innovative Education Group has leased the bottom three storeys of the retail podium at Maya by Nouvelle residential project in Yau Tong spread over 49,600 sq ft for an average monthly rent of HK$1.35 million, the largest retail leasing transaction in Kowloon East so far this year.

“I believe that Hong Kong will see an increasing number of international schools,” said Thomas Qi, founder and principal of Innovative Education Group.

Inno Secondary School will offer an international curriculum for students from grades seven to 13 from September 1, the start of the new academic year.

“We are actively adopting the Mastery Transcript Consortium (MTC) learning models into our curriculum, which is the most advanced and disruptive assessment method in the world, as well as A-levels, in the hopes that students will be able to pursue their passions and career pathways freely,” Qi said.

MTC is an international group of private and public secondary schools founded in 2017 by Scott Looney, head of Hawken School in Northeast Ohio.

Qi said that half of the students are Hongkongers, 40 per cent from the mainland and the rest from other countries. The school charges fees of about HK$188,000 per year across all grades.

Hong Kong has seen an exodus of pupils and teachers as part of a wave of emigration following the introduction of the national security law. Some 15,000 students had left the city up to July 2021 since the law was implemented a year earlier.

Another survey released on Monday showed a record number of both teachers and students departed campuses in the 2020-21 academic year. Each school lost an average of 7.1 teachers in 2020-21, with the figure standing at 3.9 in 2019-20 and 4.2 in 2018-19.

“I used to worry about [the expat exodus in Hong Kong],” said Qi, adding that he also found a lot of expat teachers want to come to Hong Kong.

He said that 70 per cent of the teachers hired are from overseas. The school interviewed 150 foreign teachers and hired six from countries like Belgium, South Africa, and the UK.

The school plans to limit the number of students to fewer than 60 for the first year, Qi said, adding that the applications have exceeded the number of spots available, leading to students being put on a waiting list.

Qi said the group also planned to open a primary school and kindergarten in the next three to five years.

On financial and operational problems plaguing Hong Kong’s international schools, Qi said he was not concerned.

“If you operate a school well, there is definitely no need to worry,” said Qi. Since the group has the landlord’s explicit support, there will not be much of a problem, he added.

Nick Tang Ho-hong, CEO of Wang On Properties, said the company was pleased to lease 50,000 sq ft of space in Maya by Nouvelle’s retail podium in such a difficult retail environment.

“The commercial lease transaction will help propel Yau Tong into one of the upscale residential areas in East Kowloon,” Tang said.

遠東金融中心呎租55元減25% 放盤5個月獲承租


受疫情打擊,核心區甲廈租金急下滑。消息指,金鐘遠東金融中心中層單位以每呎約55元租出,較舊租下跌約25%。

市場消息指出,金鐘遠東金融中心中層2室,建築面積約2703方呎,新以每呎約55元租出,月租約148665元,惟上址上一手租金為每呎74元,因租戶有意撤出,故業主今年初率先將物業放租,至今五個月,近期租戶約滿,單位亦速獲承租,租金明顯下滑,但屬貼市價水平。

租金回報3

據代理指出,上址業主於2012年以5946.6萬購入,呎價約2.2萬,享回報約3厘水平。據代理資料顯示,該甲廈今年以來錄5宗租務個案,成交呎租介乎48元至55元,最新個案為該甲廈中層4室,建築面積2980方呎,今年4月以每呎約55元租出,月租約16.39萬。

力寶中心每呎44元租出

另外,同區甲廈力寶中心亦錄承租個案,消息指,該廈2座低層8室,建築面積1925方呎,新以每呎約44元租出,月租約8.47萬。上址舊租金每呎55元,故最新租金下跌約2成。

業內人士分析指,由於力寶中心業權分散,不少單位交吉,業主議價空間較闊,疫情爆發期間,甲廈供過於求,拖累租務需求急劇萎縮,租金明顯受壓。

本報統計資料顯示,金鐘力寶中心於去年第四季平均呎租約54.1元,較兩年前急挫約34%,屬十大甲廈中於疫市期間跌幅「最傷」甲廈。

凱龍瑞上環商廈意向4.5億

隨疫情放緩,業主亦趁勢放售旗下物業。有外資代理行表示,由凱龍瑞基金持有的上環永樂街58號全幢商廈物業,以招標形式放售,項目樓高21層,總建築樓面2.01萬方呎,共提供20層商業空間,地下設有一個鋪位,意向價為4.5億,呎價約22388元。

信和工中短炒獲利66

代理指出,該物業位於上環商業核心區,價錢吸引並具有命名權,料對用家及投資者均具吸引力。資料顯示,凱龍瑞基金早前以招標放售謝斐道303號全幢商廈及毗鄰的海外信託銀行大廈41個車位,市值共18.5億。

另外,工廈市場亦錄短炒獲利個案。有代理表示,九龍灣啟祥道9號信和工商中心7樓1室,建築面積約2119方呎,位處大單邊,以約868萬易手,呎價約4096元。原業主為區內資深投資者於去年11月以約802萬購入,持貨僅約半年帳面獲利約66萬,物業期間迅速升值約8.2%。

此外,另一代理表示,觀塘偉業街170號豐業工業大廈1樓A室,建築面積約1526方呎,以意向月租約3.5萬招租,呎租約23元。

太古坊二座租6層 疫後港島最大手

中信銀行「升級」 租甲廈逾13萬呎每呎約50元

甲廈新需求疲弱,而大手租務僅屬搬遷。今年入伙的太古坊二座錄得大手成交,中信銀行 (國際) 租用物業6層逾13萬呎樓面,為疫後港島區最大手甲廈租務,該銀行原租用同區太古地產 (01972) 旗下德宏大廈,是次搬遷可提升寫字樓級數,呎租料約50元。

港島甲廈錄得一宗大手租務,涉及今年即將落成的鰂魚涌太古坊新商廈,太古坊二座多層獲承租,涉及低層及中層各3層樓面,合共6層樓面,以每層面積約2.2萬平方呎,涉及逾13萬平方呎。按面積計,為疫情後港島區最大手甲廈租務成交個案。

據了解,新租客為大型中資機構中信銀行,該集團租用本港多幢物業,包括位於太古坊的德宏大廈多層,是次搬至同屬太古地產旗下物業,而太古坊二座為全新甲廈,質素大幅提升,而租用樓面則相若,未有擴充。

今年落成的太古坊二座,近日錄得另一宗全層成交,涉及物業中層全層逾2萬平方呎,呎租料約50元,新租客為顧問公司Boston Consulting,該公司原租太古坊一座約1萬平方呎單位,如今搬至二座,樓面有所擴充。

中區4月呎租103 本年累跌1.1%

太古地產早年啟動太古坊重建計劃,一座已於2018年入伙,而康和大廈及和域大廈,重建為總樓面面積約100萬平方呎的「太古坊二座」,預計今年中入伙。據悉,現時大廈預租率逾半,除了中信銀行外,另一大租客為瑞士私人銀行寶盛集團 (Julius Baer Group Ltd),租用物業4層共約9.18萬平方呎樓面,呎租約50元。該集團原租用中環交易廣場等,搬遷可大幅節省租金開支。

疫情下甲廈租金仍在低位徘徊,據一間外資代理行數據顯示,4月中區甲廈呎租約102.5元,本年暫累跌約1.1%,跌幅不算多,而港島東最新報48.8元,今年累跌約2%,而全港整體租金今年跌不足1%,按年跌2.5%,反映過去一年甲廈租金跌勢已喘定。

該行代理指,首季本港爆發第5波疫情,睇樓活動急停,至近日疫情緩和,機構睇樓活動明顯增加。該代理指,受環球疫情影響,各跨國機構取態仍非常審慎,主要考慮節省成本,極少擴充個案,而搬遷涉及成本包括裝修費等,故部分選擇續租。

甲廈高峰租跌25% 再跌空間微

該代理預計,因商業活動略為增加,部分機構考慮搬遷可節省開支及提升寫字樓級數,相信今年下半年租務個案上升。租金方面,她指甲廈租金從高峰期回落約25%,相信再下跌空間不多,惟空置樓面仍不少,故租金較為平穩,暫難明顯反彈。

企業「只搬不擴」 商廈空置暫難減

本港仍未與多國通關,新需求維持疲弱,搬遷而乏擴充,令空置樓面仍多,加上今明兩年大量新供應,空置率勢仍在高水平。

甲廈空置11.6% 近10年新高

受長達兩年疫情衝擊,本港與內地以至歐美地區採嚴謹檢疫政策,商務往來大幅減少,導致甲廈租務活動變得頗為淡靜。據一間外資代理行數據顯示,本港甲廈最新空置率為11.6%,屬近10多年來新高,空置樓面近千萬平方呎,為歷史上最多,可見疫情衝擊之巨大。

近兩年甲廈租務因新需求下跌,故多個季度出現甲廈負吸納情況,直至去年尾情況有所改善。不過,第5波疫情殺到,令甲廈租務再度受打擊。現時疫情緩和,相信可吸引個別機構重新部署,租務氣氛可望稍轉好。

即使最近甲廈租務活動少許增加,新成交個案主要為搬遷個案。事實上,機構作出搬遷,吸納一批新樓面同時,原租用樓面騰出待租,對整體空置率實在變化不大。因此一日未落實通關,內地及海外機構未能來港進行視察,擴充活動仍然偏少,甲廈新需求仍疲弱。

新供應將臨 租務預計不佳

另一商廈市場負面因素為新供應,據數據顯示,今明兩年為甲廈高峰期,本年將有為430萬平方呎樓面推出,明年再有達320萬平方呎供應,兩年合共逾750萬平方呎樓面。以今年新落成項目,預租情況普遍不算理想。本身空置樓面近千萬呎,兩年新增700萬平方呎樓面,將令甲廈空置率維持高水平一段長時間。

美資縮規模 轉租創紀之城5期

九龍區方面,多宗甲廈租務均屬搬遷而縮減規模,如美資公司租用觀塘創紀之城5期寫字樓1.3萬平方呎,涉及縮減半數樓面。

原租用九龍灣宏天廣場

市場消息指,觀塘創紀之城5期20樓單位,面積約1.3萬平方呎,以每平呎約30元租出。該廈為apm商場樓上,為觀塘區甲廈指標。據悉,新租客為一家美資企業,從事採購業務。該機構原租用九龍灣宏天廣場約2.7萬平方呎單位,是次搬遷縮減逾半樓面,而寫字樓級數略為提升。

同區屢錄縮減業務個案,消息指,觀塘宏利廣場 (前稱國際貿易中心) 3.6萬平方呎樓面,以每平方呎約30餘元租出。據悉,新租客為船務公司,原租用同區建生廣場約4.3萬平方呎,是次搬遷縮減7,000呎單位。此外,較早前旺角新世紀廣場全層2.6萬平方呎樓面,獲電子品牌樂聲牌租用,品牌亦大幅縮減逾萬呎樓面。

東九甲廈質素新租金低

分析指,由於環球疫情影響不少行業,故經濟仍有隱憂下,機構多進行縮減成本,而東九龍甲廈質素新而租金偏低,故仍錄不少租務活動。租金方面,因東九龍空置率高達15%,租金仍在低位。

另東九龍租務上,消費指,九龍灣宏天廣場高層10B室,面積約1,719平方呎,以每平方呎約23元租出。另同區國際交易中心中層11B至12A室,面積約1,000平方呎,成交呎租約18元。

US law firm Dorsey & Whitney joins peer in relocating to Hong Kong’s Central business district amid falling rents

Dorsey & Whitney has taken up 3,500 sq ft of space at Alexandra House in Central

Office rents in Central are currently a third lower at HK$116 (US$14.8) per square foot compared with the peak of HK$170 in 2019

International law firm Dorsey & Whitney relocated on Wednesday to a 3,500 sq ft prime office space in Hong Kong’s main business district of Central, making it the latest law firm to take advantage of an office glut.

Such moves have offered some relief to office landlords in the city, who have been struggling as overall office vacancy rates remained stubbornly high at 9.4 per cent in March and April, according to a property agency.

Dorsey’s office used to be in Pacific Place in the neighbouring district of Admiralty, where it stayed for more than two decades. It employs about 20 legal professionals in Hong Kong. The new office is in Alexandra House, a Hongkong Land property with 37 floors of office space above a retail podium called Landmark Alexandra that houses luxury brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Saint Laurent and Tory Burch.

“Our new home in Hong Kong brings us much closer to our clients in the heart of Central,” said Simon Chan, head of Dorsey’s Hong Kong office. “Moving to this prestigious location and more efficiently using our space were two of the driving factors in our move.”

The move puts the firm within walking distance of clients, the stock exchange, banks, financial institutions, conglomerates, family offices, and local law firms that it serves and collaborates with, Chan said.

The 110-year-old Minneapolis-headquartered law firm opened its Hong Kong office in 1995. It has 20 locations across the US, Canada, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The Hong Kong office has served as crucial connector both into Asia and from Asia to the US and the rest of the world. It provides services such as dispute resolution and assistance for cross-border mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and international capital markets transactions.

“Our team in Hong Kong is committed to the highest quality service to clients, and our new location is one more way that we invest in that commitment,” said Dorsey managing partner Bill Stoeri.

Dorsey’s relocation follows that of New York-headquartered White & Case, which opened in April a 25,000 sq ft office across three floors at York House, Central, also owned by Hongkong Land.

“We have seen a trend of well-performing businesses looking to move to Central or relocate within Central” due to the upgrade in quality, said Neil Anderson, director and head of office, commercial property at Hongkong. “Recent leasing activity in Central underlines its continuing resilience and value at the nexus of the capital markets and business community in Hong Kong.”

The average prime office rent in Central currently stands at HK$116 (US$14.8) per square foot, nearly 32 per cent lower than the peak of HK$170 in 2019, according to a property agent. Overall prime office rents in Hong Kong have fallen by more than a quarter to HK$53 per square foot.

“We do see multinational companies relocating within or to Central, or upgrading their space to higher-quality buildings in various sub-markets,” the agent said. “The reasons are rental savings, better specifications of buildings and other long-term business strategies.”

The office property market would have been more active if Hong Kong had not been hit hard by the fifth wave of the pandemic, according to another property agency.

“Landlords are beginning to speak to occupiers about potential early lease renewals to retain existing tenants,” agent said.

The agency which had originally anticipated a slight recovery of around 1 per cent for the year, now expects overall Hong Kong and CBD grade A office rents to correct by 5 per cent.

Another agency however, expects office rents to trend higher. Rents in Central could rise between 5 and 10 per cent, and overall Hong Kong office rents by as much as 5 per cent, agent said.

Henderson Land says John Lee’s pledge to speed up housing and land supply will benefit homebuyers, the government and developers

Co-chairman Peter Lee says developer will help Hong Kong’s next leader with scheme to provide training and mentoring to 1,000 junior secondary school students living in subdivided flats

We believe that the demand in the second half will be strong, co-chairman Martin Lee says

Henderson Land Development, which was founded by Lee Shau-kee, Hong Kong’s second-richest man, said it expected that a pledge by John Lee Ka-chiu, Hong Kong’s next leader, to speed up housing and land supply would benefit homebuyers, the government as well as developers.

“We agree that Hong Kong should boost the supply of land in both quantity and quality, as mentioned by chief executive-elect John Lee,” Martin Lee Ka-shing, Henderson Land’s co-chairman and Lee Shau-kee’s younger son, said at an annual general meeting held on Wednesday.

Peter Lee Ka-kit, Henderson Land’s other co-chairman and the founder’s elder son, said that Henderson Land would help John Lee complete his pilot scheme and help 1,000 junior secondary school students living in subdivided flats with training and mentoring programmes. “The scheme will offer 1,000 children a better future and help to narrow the gap between the rich and the poor,” he said.

Henderson Land is betting on a recovery in Hong Kong’s housing market in the second half of this year, as the city’s Covid-19 outbreak is brought under control. “Social distancing controls have been relaxed, and we believe that the demand in the second half will be strong,” Martin Lee said, adding that the company was planning to roll out the 2,800-unit Baker Circle project in Hung Hom.

Baker Circle is expected to be put onto the market for sales this month at the earliest, and is one of the biggest urban residential redevelopment projects by a private developer in Hong Kong.

Henderson Land has spent more than 20 years and billions of dollars on property acquisitions for Baker Circle, which will have a total gross floor area of about 1 million sq ft. It will include an almost 1 kilometre long pedestrian street inspired by Coal Drops Yard, a shopping area near King’s Cross in London.

On the mainland, Peter Lee said that due to the recent lockdown in Shanghai, projects in the city had been delayed by about half a year. “Most of the places have reopened today and our work can be resumed. We will try to catch up in the second half,” he said.

Shanghai ended its two-month-long citywide lockdown on Wednesday, allowing 2.67 million businesses to resume operations.

Henderson Land has six commercial properties for leasing, including offices and shopping centres, in Shanghai. Its commercial complex Lumina Shanghai in Xuhui Riverside District is currently under construction and is expected to be launched this year.

11,292-home plan for Yuen Long rejected

Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) and Hongkong Land's 2019 application for an 11,292-flat project in Shek Wu Wai in Yuen Long was rejected by Town Planning Board yesterday.

The project is located at San Tin/Lok Ma Chau and the future development of the area has not yet been formulated, therefore the rezoning application was not supported, the board said. The developers said they were aware of the TPB's decision and that they had submitted another rezoning application earlier in May this year, which would be more in line with the government's latest planning and development framework.

工商鋪錄436宗按月升16% 代理行:料後市平穩發展


本港疫情陰霾漸消退,投資氣氛稍有回暖,工商鋪註冊量齊升。有代理行綜合土地註冊處資料顯示,工商鋪5月份註冊量錄436宗,按月升約16.6%,金額錄67.77億,按月躍升約43%。該行認為,市場上負面氣氛漸消退,預料後市交投平穩發展。

逾億元註冊錄14

5月份工商鋪各板塊宗數及金額全綫上升。工廈及商鋪註冊分別按月升約21.7%及13.7%,最新分別錄241及116宗。商廈註冊量則按月上升6.8%,最新報79宗,再創今年以來單月最高。5月份整體註冊宗數最新報436宗,按月升約16.6%。

若按金額劃分,5月份註冊量最多的為500萬以下的物業,共錄221宗,按月升約11.1%。逾500萬以上至1,000萬的物業,共錄93宗,按月急升約57.6%。逾2000萬至5000萬物業錄7.7%按月跌幅,5月共錄36宗。逾5000萬至1億物業表現較遜,錄10宗登記,按月跌41.2%。5月逾1億物業表現不俗,按月漲升2.5倍,註冊宗數錄14宗,按月增10宗,當中9宗為工廈註冊,包括葵涌達利大廈16樓1至8室及17樓1至4室,以約2.64億成交。

股市波動影響投資氣氛

該行代理表示,內地早前爆發疫情、俄烏戰爭等而實施的封控措施,令全球供應鏈受到一定程度衝擊,影響投資氣氛,雖然近日出現感染群組,但隨着食肆堂食限制和營業時間放寬,負面氣氛開始退卻,不過,最受市場關注的通關仍然未有消息,預料在未有重大利好消息出現前,後市仍繼續平穩發展。

代理行:工商鋪價量連升3個月

環球經濟未見明朗,加上俄烏戰事持續,股票走勢反覆,資金流入工商。有代理行統計,5月份市場共錄約404宗工商鋪買賣,涉及總金額約112.15億,對比上月分別遞增約13.16%及21.99%。

當中工廈受追捧,月內錄得四宗逾億成交,大額交易亦有利增強投資者信心,月內工廈買賣成交量佔整體約60%。

該行代理表示,5月份錄得宗大額成交所動,工廈表現最突出,5月份工廈錄約245宗交,佔整體成交量約60%,成交金額則近70億元,佔整體成交金額約62%,最大宗為嘉里建設以作價約46.2億沽出兩個分別位於沙田及柴灣的貨倉予華潤物流,暫成今年度最大宗工廈買賣。外資基金表現積極。市場消息指,粉嶺業暢街6號新中國洗衣集團大廈全幢作價以約4.5億易手,預計將項目轉作凍倉用途以作長線收租。

工廈成交佔整體約60%

同時,5月份商鋪買賣宗數亦見平穩,錄得約100宗水平,主因涉及多宗市區重建收購。如樂風集團於月內夥拍外資基金成功收購尖沙嘴漢口道31至37號舊樓大部分業權,料總收購金額約15億,並計畫申請強拍統一業權以重建成甲廈。

該代理分析,隨着本港疫情漸趨緩和,本地發展商亦積極吸納舊樓以增土地儲蓄。

此外,該代理認為,香港作為國際金融中心,金融地位穩固,工商鋪市況正全面復甦,不少發展商、財團及投資者都積極入市,大額成交陸續出現,為投資者打下強心針。內地疫情受控,兩地通關安排有望推進,預計工商鋪買賣將愈見頻繁。

工廈進可攻退可守 基金追捧

代理:活化作數據中心 絕對有前景

投資市場以工廈表現一枝獨秀,有外資代理行認為,工廈「進可攻退可守」,既有增值空間而收租亦穩定,深得基金追捧。該行指,數據與市民生活息息相關,故工廈活化成數據中心絕對有前景。

據該行數據,去年大手買賣投資市場上,商廈、舖位等均不及工廈出色,2021年共錄57宗大手工廈成交,佔整體比例約33%;涉及金額289億元,佔總金額39%。踏入2022年,即使第5波疫情出現,工廈亦獲資金追捧,截至上月尾,共錄22宗大額工廈成交,佔44%;而涉及金額為131.2億元,佔52%。換言之,今年大額買賣中,半數來自工廈成交。

疫情緩和,大手買賣開始出現,成交集中在工廈,先有美資基金Nuveen以近29億元購入葵涌集運中心全幢,該物業總樓面面積約26.62萬平方呎,呎價高見1.09萬元。兩星期前,嘉里 (00683) 更以約46億元,沽出火炭、柴灣兩項貨倉物業,買家為華潤物流,料購入自用。

該行代理指出,工廈投資市場近年出現明顯變化,「數年前,工廈工作室拆售興起,財團購入工廈樓面再進行拆售。近兩年工廈大額投資形式有變,多涉及全幢物業,而成交比例高達5成,是前所未有。」

該代理指,近兩年工廈買家中,外資基金所佔比例頗高,「環球資金非常充裕,外資基金特別增設亞洲房地產基金,能夠在短時間內籌集10億至20億美元,於1至2年內買物業,才可以向投資者交代。基金既有增值空間,收租亦穩定,防守性高。」該代理分析,工廈勝在進可攻退可守,「防守方面,工廈出租率偏高,過去半年,工廈不論分層及物流貨倉,空置率近乎歷來最低,租金沒有下跌空間,更相信會微升,故收租夠穩定。早年基金集中買寫字樓,惟近年經常有租戶退租消息,空置率高,外資基金寧夥拍本地營運商投資工廈,進可攻退可守。」

疫情令消費模式改變 工廈需求大

疫情令商舖、商廈需求降,而工廈卻受捧。該代理指,疫情令消費模式改變,「網購增加,而在疫情下物流的流轉受影響,積存貨物時間較長,故需要更多貨倉,令物流及貨倉重要性提高。」除此之外,外資基金黑石、Brookfield以及新加坡StorHub,近月不斷購入觀塘、沙田等分層工廈,發展迷你倉業務,同樣反映財團看好倉庫市場。

該代理認為活化措施下,不少財團把工廈轉作數據中心,「今次活化工廈措施最大分別,是逾一半申請傾向改建數據中心。」該代理指,疫情下數據中心更有前景,「數據中心與生活息息相關,市民需要在家工中,加上網購等,雲端服務需求只會提升,因此數據中心前景理想,吸引改裝。」

東鐵過海效應 火炭工廈潛力高

政府推出工廈補地價標準金額,有利工廈轉住宅用途。有外資代理行代理認為,東鐵綫過海段通車後,火炭工廈轉用住宅潛力更高。

工廈重建「標準金額」補地價先導計劃實施1年多,工廈可補地價重建商業項目或住宅。事實上,住宅在港長期供不應求,工廈轉作住宅有商機。事實上,長實 (01113) 去年曾向城規會提出改劃申請,把比鄰火炭站附近用地,由「工業」用途改劃為「住宅 (戊類)」、「政府、機構或社區」、「休憩用地」,可興建24座28至38層的住宅樓宇,並將提供4,706伙住宅。

工廈區轉住宅 較發展北都快

另外,荃灣大窩口工業區一帶7個項目工廈重建項目中,涉及約182萬平方呎樓面正在進行,當中沙咀道一帶漸轉型成住宅區,包括新地 (00016) 牽頭的住宅項目,提供約1,330伙。

該代理指出,若把火炭、荃灣等兩工廈地改成住宅,已提供6,000多伙單位。該代理指,「兩大發展商希望在工業區補價重建住宅,既可積極提供更多住宅,而若透過標準補地價金額,可縮短補地價時間,發展商可貨如輪轉,故值得留意。」該代理指,工廈重建住宅勝在夠快,「個別港鐵沿綫工業區,已有一定交通配套。相比起政府發展北部都會區,要長達十多年時間,工廈區轉住宅快得多。」

地區上,該代理認為火炭區非常適合,因東鐵綫過海段通車後,沙田及火炭來往港島區時間縮短,工廈轉住宅的潛力最好。至於會否推動財團入市購工廈,他認為機會不高,「現時適合大型發展商持有工廈作牽頭角色,聯同區內其他業主一起申請。對外來財團來說,購入工廈需要一大筆資金,再補地價及建築等,成本太高。」

Market sizzles as Tai Po flats sell out

Both the primary and secondary property markets performed well over the long Tuen Ng festival weekend.

Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) launched another batch of 153 homes at phase 1 of Silicon Hill in Tai Po on the back of selling all the 170 flats in the first round of sales last Friday.

The batch, which comprises studio units to three-bedroom units, is priced from HK$3.8 million to HK$10.9 million after discounts, or from HK$16,427 to HK$20,354 per square foot.

These homes on average cost HK$17,661 per sq ft and have a market value of around HK$1.3 billion, the home builder said.

The sales may take place as early as Saturday, it said.

The first round of sales generated HK$1.37 billion in contracted sales and it had also sold two homes via tender, SHKP said.

An 848-sq-ft three-bedroom flat with a 435-sq-ft rooftop was sold for HK$18.84 million, or HK$22,212 per sq ft, and the other home also with three bedrooms was sold for HK$12.62 million, or HK$21,000 per sq ft, it added.

In the second-hand market, home sales at 10 major housing estates rose 14.3 percent, or two to 16 cases over the weekend, which was a six-week high and remained in the double-digit level for the twelfth consecutive weekend, a property agency said.

The turnover will increase to 21 if Friday's sales are included, it stated.

An agent said that there were not many new homes in the market during the Dragon Boat Festival holiday apart from Silicon Hill, which boosted the performance of the secondary market.

The agent expects that the second-hand market sentiment to be stable as the sector gradually recovers from the hit in the first quarter.

Another property agency also recorded a 14.3 percent growth in the number of transactions over the weekend to 16.

Although second-hand home sales remained active, the property agency's home price index slipped last week, reflecting that the overall property prices were under pressure in the wake of the launches of new projects, the agent said.

The agent believes that the market will continue to focus on first-hand properties this month and new home sales may top 2,000.

4月商廈買賣 78宗今年新高

有代理表示,商廈買賣登記已在首季見底,經4月反彈後,5月料重越百宗的相對高水平,而6月可續看俏。根據土地註冊處數據,2022年4月全港共錄78宗商廈買賣登記 (數字主要反映2至4星期前商廈市場實際市況),較3月的49宗大增59%,為連跌4個月後首現反彈,並創今年以來的高位。

4月商廈登記實現量值齊升,當中成交金額更激增1.74倍,主因是5,000萬元以上大額登記急升,帶動4月商廈買賣登記金額重上20.54億元,為連跌3個月後一舉反彈至今年新高。至於,4月最矚目的單一登記項目為灣仔會展廣場辦公大樓21樓2室,涉及合約金額2.02億元;而同址的22樓2室及23樓2室,同樣各自以2.02億元登記。

億元以上物業 買賣升5

按物業價格劃分,在7個價格組別的登記量當中,錄得6升1跌。在升幅者中,以1億元或以上組別的5倍升幅最凌厲,月內登記量由3月的1宗激增至4月的6宗;而5,000萬至1億元以內組別亦大漲3.5倍,錄得9宗登記。

至於登記量最活躍的是介乎200萬至500萬元以內的細價組別,月內錄得22宗,按月亦升1.75倍;而唯一逆市錄得跌幅者為銀碼在1,000萬至2,000萬元以內的中價組別,登記量按月減少23%,錄得10宗買賣登記。

以地區劃分,在該行觀察的11個分區當中,共有7區的登記量按月上升;當中更有3區「破蛋」及2區倍升的佳況;破蛋者包括西營盤/堅尼地城區、九龍灣區及沙田區。至於灣仔/銅鑼灣區買賣登記量按月急增3倍,勁錄28宗,成為月內最活躍的觀察區,主要受惠灣仔會展廣場辦公大樓21至23樓合共錄得18宗登記所帶動。至於觀塘區在低基數下,亦錄得2倍升幅,月內錄得3宗登記。

代理指出,原本受第5波疫情遏抑的商廈,於疫情轉緩後隨即出現顯著反彈,反映資金重拾入市信心,料在防疫措施逐步鬆綁下,有利整體經濟表現回勇,利好商廈後市持續反彈。再者,東鐵綫過海段通車後,日後往返新界及市區,以至跨境穿梭深圳及大灣區更為便捷,當中會展設立新站後,尤其利好灣仔一帶商廈市道。因應疫情持續改善;5月截至27日止,商廈買賣登記已剛好錄得100宗,料全月最終可達110宗,屆時將有力創9個月新高,並預期6月可續於高位徘徊。

Hong Kong’s property market regains mojo as deals hit 10-month high in May

Overall property transactions jumped 63.8 per cent month-on-month to 7,949 in May, which was also the highest since 9,957 clocked in July 2021

Sales of new homes saw the biggest jump in May, rising nearly fivefold to 1,492 units from the previous month

Hong Kong’s property market picked up momentum in May, with deals hitting a 10-month high, building on the gains of the previous month as homebuyers returned after the fifth wave of Covid-19 was brought under control.

Total transactions, including residential, commercial and industrial properties as well as parking spaces, rose 63.8 per cent month-on-month to 7,949 in May, according to data from the Land Registry. It was also the highest total since 9,957 deals were completed in July 2021.

“As the pandemic continues to stabilise, the government has gradually relaxed social distancing measures, helping to lift property market sentiment,” a property agent said.

The brisk second-hand transactions, coupled with the enthusiastic response of buyers to many new launches, led to a significant increase in the overall number of deals in May, the agent said.

The May figure was more than double the 3,828 transactions in March. The biggest jump was for new homes, sales of which skyrocketed nearly fivefold to 1,492 from the previous month.

The most popular projects included the first phase of Grand Mayfair, which sold 701 flats, and Monaco Marine, which sold 267 homes.

Ricky Wong Kwong-yiu, ­managing director of Wheelock Properties, expects sales of new homes to remain at around 1,500 in the coming months as developers speed up launches, taking advantage of an improvement in sentiment following the easing of the fifth wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

A 1,206 sq ft flat with a rooftop at K Wah International’s K Summit development in Kai Tak on Thursday sold for HK$48.3 million (US$6.16 million), or HK$40,050 per sq ft. Both figures are the highest for the project.

Chinachem Group sold three duplex flats at the luxury project Bisney Crest in Pok Fu Lam in two days. One of them, measuring 1,640 sq ft, sold for HK$60 million on Wednesday.

Sino Land sold one flat at 133 Portofino in Sai Kung measuring 1,076 sq ft on Sunday for HK$21.8 million.

On the outlook for this month, a property agent said that transactions are likely to drop by as much as 18 per cent to around 6,550.

“In the second-hand residential market transactions are slowing down as owners have become more ambitious [with asking prices] and some have even raised asking prices, narrowing the room for bargaining,” the agent said.

Coupled with new residential launches that are competing for buyers, the number of second-hand transactions may soften by 20 to 30 per cent this month, the agent added.

Another agent expects that the overall sales figure in June to decline by up to 12 per cent to around 7,000 in June.

“Second-hand bargain properties have been purchased, and sales have slowed down,” the agent said. “The primary market is seeing launches with restrained pricing, which has diverted second-hand buying power.”

Hong Kong homebuyers mark Dragon Boat Festival by buying all flats at Sun Hung Kai’s Silicon Hill project in New Territories

Silicon Hill’s first round is priced 6 per cent lower than the average price of lived-in homes at SHKP’s St Martin development

Young buyers are betting on the future of Pak Shek Kok, a property agent said

Hong Kong homebuyers turned out in droves on the Dragon Boat Festival holiday on Friday and snapped all homes that Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) offered in New Territories, despite an expected hike in interest rates and the city’s weakened economy.

All 170 homes put on the market at Silicon Hill in Pak Shek Kok in the city’s northeastern Tai Po district were sold as of 5pm, agents said. Another 18 homes had been offered through tender and the results of these bids have not been made public yet.

The project comprises three phases and 1,871 homes, and its first round was priced at an average of HK$17,498 (US$2,230) per square foot, 6 per cent lower than the average price of lived-in homes at St Martin, which is a 10-minute walk away from Silicon Hill and was launched by SHKP four years ago.

“Many young buyers, aged around 30, bought their first homes, as the total price was not that high. They were also betting on the future of Pak Shek Kok, where the launch of a new MTR station has been confirmed,” a property agent said.

The city’s home market has been robust in recent months, defying an expected interest rate hike and still weak economic growth. The cost of buying a house locally is rising, with the benchmark one-month Hong Kong Interbank Offered Rate (Hibor) expected to rise to 1.5 per cent in the third quarter of this year. It will follow the same upwards trajectory as the higher interest rates set by the US Federal Reserve and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.

At the same time, the local jobless rate in the three months ending April rose to 5.4 per cent, its highest level in 12 months, and about 206,100 people were out of work in this period.

At the same time, a price index of lived-in homes compiled by the Hong Kong government edged up 0.4 per cent to 390.8 in April and was about 1.5 per cent shy of the 396.9 recorded in May 2019.

Analysts said they expected the increase in May to amount to 1.5 per cent, which meant the index could break this record. And if the index rose by about 1 per cent in June, it could climb to the unprecedented 400-point mark.

The cheapest unit on offer at Silicon Hill was a 291 sq ft studio priced at HK$4.96 million. About 3,200 bids were received for the first batch, which means about 18 people were vying for every unit on sale.

“It is mainly due to the easing of the Covid-19 outbreak. Homebuyers expect things will bottom out in the second half,” another property agent said. New home sales were expected to rise to 2,000 units this month, as new developments gradually enter the market, the agent added.

甲廈租金回調 機構趁機搬遷

疫情緩和後,甲廈租務稍增,亦錄大手成交。成交個案大部分為搬遷,反映機構趁甲廈租金回調,搬遷可節省成本,或作為辦公室升級。

疫情放緩後,寫字樓租務持續向好,有外資代理行發表報告指出,社交距離措施放寬下,4月甲級寫字樓市場得以重拾動力。由於租戶需求持續增長且有新供應落成,整體甲級寫字樓市場錄得24.9萬平方呎的淨吸納量。隨着新供應落成,4月底整體市場的空置率維持在9.4%。中環空置率微升至7.4%,而東九龍空置率為12.8%,仍然為各主要分區市場中最高。

4月整體市場租金保持平穩。主要分區市場中,中環租金月內微升0.1%,尖沙咀則按月下跌0.9%,屬分區市場中最大跌幅。

中資升級辦公室 太古坊多層

港島甲廈近日錄得一宗大手租務,涉及今年即將落成的鰂魚涌太古坊新商廈。太古坊二座低層及中層各3層樓面,合共6層樓面,以每層面積約2.2萬平方呎計算,涉逾13萬平方呎。按面積計,為疫情後港島區最大手甲廈租務成交個案。新租客為大型中資機構中信銀行 (國際),該集團租用本港多幢物業,包括位於太古坊的德宏大廈多層,是次搬至同屬太古地產 (01972) 旗下物業,而太古坊二座為全新甲廈,質素大幅提升,而租用樓面相若,未有擴充。

太古坊二座錄得另一宗全層成交,涉及物業中層全層逾2萬平方呎,呎租料約50元,新租客為顧問公司Boston Consulting,該公司原租太古坊一座約1萬平方呎單位,如今搬至二座。

九龍區方面,亦錄得租戶搬遷個案,涉及旺角新世紀廣場全層單位,面積約2.6萬平方呎,以每平方呎約28元租出,屬市價水平。據了解,新租客為樂聲牌Panasonic,品牌現時租用尖東華懋廣場,涉約4萬平方呎樓面,現由尖東搬至旺角,縮減逾3成樓面。另外,同廈一個約1.5萬平方呎單位,獲奶粉品牌美素佳兒租用,呎租料約28元。該租客原租用同區朗豪坊商廈,呎租逾40元,搬遷可節省部分租金開支。

分析指,疫情緩和,睇樓活動重啟,多間大型機構重新審視部署,令近期租務活動稍增。由於環球疫情衝擊經濟,令不少機構對後市仍審慎,故擴充個案不多,搬遷成交主要為機構縮減業務。另外,由於甲廈租金從高峰期回落2至3成,吸引機構趁機搬至質素較高的商廈,相信下半年租務活動將加快。

凱龍瑞尖沙咀商廈 醫思健康入股

疫情後醫療需求上升,凱龍瑞基金旗下尖沙咀商廈重建項目,現獲醫療集團參與合作,涉資2.75億。

項目打造醫生大廈

醫思健康 (02138) 公布,向亞洲聯合基建 (00711) 及凱龍瑞集團管理旗下尖沙咀商廈業權一家合資公司認購30%股權,總額不多於2.75億元,涉及可出租樓面面積約10.3萬平方呎,主要用作醫療中心及其他臨床用途。據了解,是次涉及物業為尖沙咀金馬倫道35至37號重建商廈項目。

凱龍瑞中國香港首席執行官何震東指,是次屬香港首次基金及醫療集團合作發展項目,而物業打造成醫生大廈,更切合目前市況。他指,項目將於2024年落成,原先打算分層拆售,如今獲醫療集團注資,故日後改為把物業全幢出售。

翻查資料,凱龍瑞於2018年,斥資6.5億元購入尖沙咀金馬倫道35號87.5%,並申請強拍,其後基金再向小巴大王馬亞木購入尖沙咀金馬倫道37號全幢,涉4.48億元,呎價約1.9萬元,合併後進後重建。

衙前圍道全幢物業7380萬沽 長情業主割愛 60年升值359倍

政府放寬防疫措施帶動工商鋪交投轉活,市場再錄大手成交。消息透露,以暗盤形式放售的九龍城衙前圍道全幢商住樓,以約7380萬易手,呎價1.3萬,原業主持貨60年,帳面獲利7359萬,物業期間升值359倍。據業內人士指出,上址具合併重建價值,成交價屬合理水平。

綜合市場消息指出,九龍城衙前圍道54號全幢商住樓,地鋪及閣樓建築面積2671方呎,2樓至5樓為住宅,每層面積747方呎,項目總樓面5659方呎,以7380萬售出,平均呎價約13041元。據悉,上址原業主早於1962年以20.5萬買入,持貨60年帳面獲利7359萬,期間升值359倍。

平均呎價13041

據地產代理指出,上址地鋪位置現時由食肆以每月8.7萬租用,門面闊約20呎,租約期至今年底屆滿,以成交價計,租金回報約1.4厘。

盛滙商舖基金創辦人李根興指,上址於市場上以暗盤形式放售,並迅速獲承接,料買家為投資老手,成交呎價屬貼市價水平,該項目亦鄰近市建局重建地盤,故料買家購入冀獲收購。

有代理稱,政府於多年前已積極發展九龍城區,因區內舊樓樓齡多達五十年以上,發展潛力甚大,加上自港鐵屯馬綫開通後,令沿綫地區交通配套進一步完善,帶動人流及消費力急增,吸引發展商及投資者紛於區內「插旗」發展。

事實上,衙前圍道近期頻獲發展商「吼準」發展,資料顯示,興勝創建於去年底以1.95億購入該街道55號,以可建樓面2.43萬方呎計,每呎地價8033元。

此外,興勝創建亦於2017年初以2.4億購入鄰近的衙前圍道57A號舊樓,料作合併發展。

業界:料作合併重建

另一方面,區內市建區項目亦進行得如火如荼,市建局早前公布,開展九龍城衙前圍道及賈炳達道發展計畫,地盤面積逾39.8萬方呎,涉及3個地盤,料合共提供4350伙中小型住宅。

據悉,北面地盤位於賈炳達道公園範圍內,東面地盤則連接太子道東及打鼓嶺道休憩花園。

EC Healthcare building to go up in Tsim Sha Tsui

EC Healthcare (2138), backed by Adrian Cheng Chi-kong, chief executive of New World Development (0017), will spend HK$275 million forming a joint venture to raise a medical building in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Construction of the building, with an estimated lettable floor area of 103,000 square feet, is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2024, EC Healthcare said yesterday.

EC will hold a 30 percent stake in the joint venture company, and enter into a lease for the entire building for an initial term of five years with an option to extend for a further five years. It will also have naming rights to the building.

Meanwhile, shares of NWD rose 3.8 percent after FTSE Russell reversed a decision and kept the developer as a constituent of the FTSE EPRA/Nareit Developed Asia Index.

Also, New World has named its Grade A commercial building at 888 Lai Chi Kok Road in Cheung Sha Wan the NCB Innovation Centre.

Redevelopment at Jardine's Lookout to be leased

SEA (0251) has had second thoughts on a property at 89-93 Tai Hang Road on Jardine's Lookout it acquired for HK$627 million last year.

The property comprises 15 residential units with an aggregate gross floor area of approximately 22,000 square feet.

SEA had intended to redevelop the site into a luxury residence for sale when it signed the deal last year. But it has now decided to redevelop the property into a luxury project as a long-term investment for lease, seeing that course as the most cost-effective option.

Hong Kong real estate owners seek alternative uses for retail complexes and hotels amid tourism slump

The owners of Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard in Tsim Sha Tsui want to turn the 50-store complex into a food and beverage destination

Sun Hung Kai Properties secures Town Planning Board nod to convert its Royal View Hotel in Tsuen Wan West into a residential project

Some Hong Kong retail landlords and hotel owners are seeking to convert their properties into restaurants and housing to counter rising store closures and lower occupancy rates, as the two-year tourism slump shows no signs of ending.

The owners of Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard on Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, one of Hong Kong’s four major tourist belts, last Friday submitted an application to turn the 300-metre long, 50-store complex along the boulevard into a food and beverage destination.

The proposed change will replace the retail stores with cafeterias, coffee shops and tea houses on the ground and first floors of the landmark shopping destination for tourists and locals since 1986.

The retailers are seeking a change “as a market response to the structural shifts in the socio-economic context of Tsim Sha Tsui and wider Hong Kong in recent years, especially amid a decline in tourists, which has resulted in store closures and affected the urban dynamics in the area”, the Incorporated Owners Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard, which represents the landlords, said in their application to the Town Planning Board (TPB).

The proposed uses are “critical for adding flexibility and resilience to the local economy in responding to the recent changes”, the application said.

Hong Kong’s strict travel curbs have brought the city’s tourism industry to a standstill since the coronavirus pandemic started more than two years ago. Tourist arrivals plunged 94 per cent from 43.8 million in 2019 to 2.7 million in 2020, and fell by another 98 per cent to 65,721 in 2021, according to data from the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

“The proposed change reflects the prevailing retail market demand,” a property agent said. “Even after the reopening of the border, the food and beverage sector will continue to be a sustainable trade, and modern dining concepts will do well in Hong Kong.”

Another agency also expects food and beverage outlets to attract more local customers and draw more footfall to the area.

“If the food and beverage options are of high quality and coupled with the boulevard’s trees and ambience, similar to the Champs-Élysées in Paris, it can also attract overseas tourists with its vibe,” another agent said.

Meanwhile, the slackening demand for hotels is prompting developers to convert their hotels into residential use.

Last Thursday, Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) became the latest builder to secure approval from the Town Planning Board to convert a hotel – its waterfront Royal View Hotel in Ting Kau, Tsuen Wan West – into a residential project.

The proposed changes will see the 15-storey building converted into 661 flats of varying sizes and will include a day care centre for the elderly with 60 places, according to the document from the planning authority.

It said the existing building will remain unchanged as “only minor addition and alteration work would be required [and] housing units could be delivered within a short period of time”.

SHKP’s proposal comes after CK Asset Holdings secured approval from the planning board to convert two hotels for residential use over the past 18 months.

CK Asset, the flagship company of retired tycoon Li Ka-shing, received permission in December 2020 to convert its 1,100-room Harbour Plaza Resort City in Tin Shui Wai into a 5,000-unit housing project. And in February last year, it received the green light to convert its 800-room Horizon Suites in Ma On Shan into a residential development with up to 758 flats.

“The proposed conversion makes sense as the full recovery of the city’s tourism industry is still far from certain,” a surveyor said.

尖沙咀9重建項目 香檳大廈規模最大

尖沙咀區內重建活躍,目前至少有9個重建項目,合共提供約112萬平方呎樓面,當中以有60年歷史的香檳大廈B座重建計劃規模最大,預計可提供14.7萬平方呎。

增建112萬呎商用樓面

尖沙咀屬於發展成熟的商業區,區內新增的商業用地供應罕有,發展商惟有透過收購區內舊樓進行重建,故此區內大部分新增商業樓面供應,均來自舊樓併購或者大型項目重建。據統計,區內至少9個重建項目正在進行,涉及約112萬平方呎樓面,有8個屬於舊樓收購重建而來,只有由帝國集團跟海員俱樂部合作的中間道11號「海員之家」重建項目不屬於舊樓收購。

在多個舊樓收購項目之中,以位於金巴利道16至20號的香檳大廈收購最為矚目。香檳大廈在上世紀60年代落成,曾經是九龍區最高物業,由於恒地  (00012) 系內在鄰近持有美麗華廣場及酒店,發展商早在10年前已經展開收購。

香檳大廈分A及B座,當中以B座收購比較順利,已經達至逾8成業權,並在兩年前申請進行強拍統一業權,若果獨立展開重建,單計B座地盤面積約1.23萬平方呎,規劃為商業用途,可建商業樓面約14.74萬平方呎。

漢口道2舊樓 一申強拍另擬建甲廈

Mega Hung Hom project gears for first sales

Henderson Land Development (0012) is poised to launch sales of the first homes at its 2,800-flat Baker Circle redevelopment in Hung Hom.

The Baker Circle Dover tower will offer 324 flats including 84 studios, 194 one-bedroom, 42 two-bedroom, and four special units, with sizes ranging from 200 square feet to 570 sq ft.

The sales brochure and show flats will be unveiled soon and sales could take place as early as next week, the developer said.

Baker Circle consists of nine blocks, which will be built in three phases, providing a gross floor area of more than 1 million sq ft.

In Tai Po, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said the second round of sales of 198 flats at phase 1 of Silicon Hill will take place on Saturday.

Of the homes on offer, 190 will be sold on price lists - ranging from HK$3.8 million to HK$11.34 million after discounts, or from HK$16,427 to HK$20,354 per sq ft - while eight will be tendered.

In Tuen Mun, the sales brochure of Grand Jete, SHKP's project with CK Asset (1113), is expected to be released this week at the earliest.

Grand Jete will offer 400 homes including 240 one-bedroom, 120 two-bedroom, and 40 three-bedroom units, CK Asset said.

The flats range from 263 to 722 sq ft in size and five showflats are expected to open shortly, with sales launched within the month.

In Kai Tak, Wheelock Properties put 120 homes at Monaco Marine on sale on Friday, including 21 flats in low-rise buildings.

These homes cover areas from 324 sq ft to 768 sq ft and are priced from HK$8.2 million to HK$19.4 million after discounts, or from HK$23,170 to HK$29,974 per sq ft.

Separately, the number of new homes completed in April was 1,896, up by 1.46 times from a month ago. The aggregate completion in the first four months of this year reached 9,979, 1.43 times more than a year ago, data from Rating and Valuation Department showed.

東鐵過海段通車帶動啟德甲廈租金 每年料升5%


有外資代理行指出,啟德近年發展迅速,隨港鐵東鐵綫過海段通車後,令配套進一步完套,區內租金較傳統核心區折讓達50%,備受金融保險業、電訊及共享工作空間等新興行業追捧,故區內甲廈租金前景值得看俏,料於明年起每年平均租金上升約5%。

該行代理指出,疫情打擊下,過去數年間甲廈需求稍回軟,但受近期疫情放緩帶動,令甲廈租務市況見改善,近期洽租問盤量明顯彈升。

洽租問盤量明顯彈升

該代理續指,早前疫情期間,需求主要來自物流、資訊科技及網購等行業,惟踏入今年4月份,金融保險業、零售、採購及珠寶行業等「百花齊放」,近期市場浮現新興行業包括生物醫藥及電訊等行業,惟各行各業對辦公室樓面面積持續減少,幅度介乎15%至25%,惟未必因為裁員或減省營運規模,早前疫市下,靈活辦公模式逐步受企業所接納,逐漸成為大方向,目標呎租現「兩極化」,較保守的企業大多瞄準價廉物美的寫字樓,目標呎租約30元以下,希望承租優質物業的企業,目標呎租則於40元以上。

提供罕有大樓面供應

該代理亦指,啟德區提供罕有甲廈大樓面供應,每層達五萬方呎,需求來自金融及保險業等,加上近年興起的共享工作空間,對寫字樓樓面有特定要求,環境一定夠大及寬敞,才可以打造出具質素的共享空間,故令大樓面寫字樓有價有市。

目標呎租低見30

該行另一代理指,各大企業希望進駐中環及金鐘傳統核心商業區,然而租金過於昂費,故政府早年致力發展CBD2,由九龍灣、觀塘及新蒲崗等地區,故九龍東地區形成一個全新商業結構,環顧現今啟德與中環金鐘租金折讓達50%、與油尖旺區折讓達30%,甚具競爭力,有力吸引部分跨國公司從核心區搬入。

均輝集團1.06億購日昇相連戶

隨疫情走勢持續放緩,帶動工商鋪市場交投轉活,市場再錄大手成交。消息指出,觀塘日昇中心中層3及4室,屬相連單位,於上月底分別以5603萬及5085萬售出,合共涉資約1.068億,買家為均輝集團相關人士,以總樓面20958方呎計,每呎造價約5099元。

事實上,均輝集團近期活躍於工商鋪市場,資料顯示,該集團於上月亦以3950萬購入西半山摩羅廟街26至28號建興樓地鋪,呎價約3.59萬。

此外,商廈市場亦錄大手成交,據代理指出,中環擺花街1號、及威靈頓街交界壹號廣場,該商廈低層1至4室,總建築樓面約4005方呎,以約6375萬易手,平均呎價約1.59萬。

據悉,原業主於2011年以4165萬購入,持貨11年帳面獲利2210萬,物業期間升值約53%。

栢麗大道鋪呎租77元跌34% 交吉1年始租出重返86年水平

受疫情等因素衝擊,令昔日遊客「打卡」勝地尖沙嘴栢麗大道風光不再、吉鋪處處,拖累租金急下滑,該地標購物大道於交吉約一年後,新以約5.9萬獲零售商承租,並長約3年,呎租低見77元,較上一手長租租金急挫約34%;業內人士指出,上述租金貼近該大道於1986年落成時租金水平,中港兩地尚未通關,遊客絕迹下,料該街道租金將持續受壓。

有代理指,尖沙嘴彌敦道111至181號栢麗購物大道地下64號A鋪,建築面積約766方呎,新以約5.9萬租出,呎租僅約77元,租戶為具旅行社背景的零售商,並以3年長約租用上址。

零售商取代鐘表行進駐

該鋪於去年中曾獲另一零售商以約6萬元短租,至於上一手長租為數年前由鐘表珠寶行以約9萬租用,故最新租金較上手長租約跌約34%。

另一代理稱,上址最新租金較當年「沙士」更低,栢麗大道早於1986年落成,當年呎租約60餘元至70元水平,上述租金重返上世紀80年代水平,更直逼當年落成時租金水平,反映疫情對核心區鋪市影響之大,儘管近期疫情稍回穩,惟中港兩地尚未通關,栢麗購物大道向來主攻遊客客源,現今市場消費力疲弱,料租金持續調整。

事實上,栢麗購物大道早前已頻錄大幅減租個案,57號A鋪,建築面積約766方呎,於去年底以約5萬獲健康食品店承租,呎租約65.2元,較上一手租金8.5萬急挫逾4成。

月租5.9 簽約3

上址亦於年前錄大幅蝕讓個案,由資深投資者李耀華持有的29號至30號連1樓巨鋪於2020年以2.1億售出,持貨8年帳面勁蝕逾2.2億。

尖沙嘴栢麗購物大道早於八十年代中拆售,由於業權分散,業界認為重返昔日光輝歲月難度較大,近年上址租售價均顯著回落,該大道業主立案法團早前亦向城規會提出申請改劃,計畫將項目「休憩用地」改劃「食肆」及「商店及服務行業」,因應近年來經濟環境改變,尖沙嘴區旅遊購物者減少,導致店鋪關閉及城市活力下降,建議從城市規劃取得彈性,以便日後將現有零售商店轉變為更多樣化、更具特色的其他商業用途,吸引更多人流。

Hung Hom show flats to open

Henderson Land Development (0012) will open show flats of The Baker Circle Dover in Hung Hom this weekend.

The sales brochure may be unveiled today and the first price list with at least 65 units may be released within the week, said Thomas Lam Tat-man, a general manager of Henderson's sales department.

The tower offers 324 flats, including 84 studios, 194 one-bedroom, 42 two-bedroom, and four special units, with sizes ranging from 200 square feet to 570 sq ft.

The Baker Circle redevelopment project consists of nine blocks which will be built in three phases, providing a total of 2,800 flats.

In Tai Po, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) has raked in more than HK$63.8 million after selling five homes via tender.

Meanwhile, a real estate agency expects that overall property market sentiment to further improve in the second half of this year as the economy is set to pick up and Covid subsides.

An agent estimates that new home sales will jump 91 percent to 10,500 in the second half from a projection of 5,500 in the first half.

Secondary home sales will also soar 36 percent to about 30,000 in the second half from about 22,000 in the first half, the agent said.

The property agency plans to open 30 additional branches and recruit 1,000 more employees in the six months from July.

Separately, Secretary for Development Michael Wong Wai-lun said the government plans to consult a Legislative Council panel on the "new land first" proposal in the fourth quarter of this year.

The proposal is to enable early implementation of the title registration system on newly granted land first, which will enable industry practitioners and the public to benefit from the new system as early as possible, Wong wrote in a reply to LegCo.

Compared to the present deeds registration system, which gives no guarantee to title, the title registration system will provide greater assurance and certainty of property titles, he said, adding that all key stakeholders have expressed support in principle for the "new land first" proposal.

鴨脷洲地盤擴大規模 宏安6100萬收購商廈

宏安地產在疫市下仍積極併購舊樓,繼早前最新購入香港仔鴨脷洲大街一幢舊樓住宅及部分地鋪,最新購入該廈1樓全層,物業屬商業契,涉資6100萬。

宏安地產加快收樓步伐,最新購入鴨脷洲大街128號順利大廈1樓1至4室,作價6100萬。該物業原業主為中華基督教禮賢會,於1982年以約228萬購入,持貨40年帳面勁賺5872萬,物業升值逾26倍。宏安亦於今年4月,購入該廈14個住宅及3個地鋪,涉資逾1.64億,至今合共以2.24億收購該廈業權。順利大廈位處鴨脷洲大街128及130號,事實上,宏安地產目前持有鴨脷洲大街120、122、124及126號,隨着收購該廈,將進一步拓大地盤規模。

區內坐擁多個項目

宏安早前接連為鴨脷洲大街的舊樓申請強拍,分別位於鴨脷洲大街17至19號海德樓,和鴨脷洲大街21至23號與平瀾街5B號花洲大樓,還有鴨脷洲新市街37至39號南德大樓,宏安已持有3項目介乎83.33%至94.74%業權。發展商曾表示,上述3項目將會一併重建,合共組成面積近7000方呎地盤,若以地積比率9倍計,項目可重建樓面約6.3萬方呎。

鴨脷洲在鐵路通車及「躍動港島南」計畫推動下,發展商紛於區內「插旗」興建地標,區內舊樓掀起收購潮,除了宏安之外,樂風集團亦夥拍新加坡的房地產私募股權投資公司SC Capital Partners,收購平瀾街2至4A號和好景街26至28號的大部分業權,以作住宅項目重建;該地盤面積約4000方呎,可建總樓面約35000方呎,總收購價約4.18億,每方呎樓面地價約11943元。該公司計畫重建為港島南區的標誌性建築,屆時所有住戶均可享香港仔海峽和海濱長廊景觀。

發展商紛進駐插旗

莊士中國更早於2019年斥資4.55億收購鴨脷洲大街26至32號舊樓,地盤面積約4320方呎,早年亦獲批建一幢樓高27層的商住物業,涉及住宅樓面約35787方呎,整個項目可建總樓面約39767方呎。不少發展商或財團併購鴨脷洲大街一帶舊樓,如恒基早年已於區內插旗,其中鴨脷洲大街71號已發展為精品式住宅逸南。

以轉讓形式放售 Jessville估值20億

由前首席大法官楊鐵樑岳父譚雅士家族持有的薄扶林豪宅項目Jessville,正由代理行以公司轉讓形式推出市場放售,市場估值逾20億元,該項目正招收意向書,7月22日截止。

薄扶林豪宅項目 7.22截意向

該項目位於薄扶林道128號,包括樓齡達91年、經保育和活化的三級歷史建築Jessville Manor,以及2019年建成的分層住宅大樓Jessville Tower,總實用面積約3.9萬方呎。

Jessville Tower樓高14層,提供28個單位,3房和4房間隔,單位實用面積1358方呎及1431方呎,據悉,該大樓去年推出招租,約一半單位獲承租,集中低層戶,月租約7萬至8萬元,是次以連租約方式發售。至於Jessville Manor已改建成提供4個特色單位的大宅,將以交吉形式易手。

負責該項目放售事宜的代理表示,有興趣的財團等須於7月22日下午5時正或之前將已簽妥的意向書正本 (以正式合約為準),遞交到萊坊位於灣仔的辦公室。

有代理表示,Jessville Manor屬三級歷史建築,在市場上十分罕有,而Jessville Tower所有單位都可以享受開揚的山景和海景,私密度很高,有見港島區新建豪宅項目供應非常短缺,該項目具潛力可拆售,勢吸引發展商和投資者等垂青,預計市場反應正面。

外資代理行看好新甲廈 吸引租客搬遷

甲廈租務市場稍為轉好,有外資代理行認為,由於整體甲廈租金有所調整,故相信下半年租務活動加快,而新落成甲廈可吸引機構搬遷。

據該代統計最新甲廈空置率,整體空置數字仍偏高,核心區中環及金鐘區,空置率高見9.4%,而非核心區東九龍亦升至15%,整體甲廈空置率達11%,為近10多年新高。

該行代理認為,甲廈新需求仍較為疲弱,「未通關情況下,中資機構未能來港,跨國企業則普遍縮減樓面,加上今年甲廈新供應多,相信年尾空置率再升,達12至13%,為近10多年新高。」

該代理指出,今年首季受第5波疫情衝擊,導致睇樓活動大減,近兩個月疫情緩和,租務活動有所加快,「情況類似去年第4波疫情完結,租務即加快。近日業主亦主動聯絡準租客,相信機構加快租務決定,料下半年租務宗數勢將上升。」

倘通關 中環尖沙咀率先反彈

新需求上,該代理指近年租金下跌,主要因空置率上升,特別是空置樓面較多地區。該代理相信,若中港通關,核心地段會受捧,「中資機構喜歡中環及尖沙咀,故若通關,核心地段租務及租金,會率先反彈。」

近日港島甲廈錄得一宗大手租務,涉及今年即將落成的鰂魚涌太古坊二座合共6層樓面,涉及逾13萬平方呎。按面積計,為疫情後港島區最大手甲廈租務成交個案。新租客為中信銀行 (國際),屬同區搬遷。

疫情下 共享空間辦公需求增

該代理分析,在整體甲廈租金下跌,可吸引租客搬遷,「現時租客搬遷普遍縮減樓面,因疫情影響,在家工作等靈活辦公概念興起,機構減少新租樓面。但並不代表減開支,現時很多租客會趁機租用新落成甲廈,作提升級數,或由工廈搬至商廈,令搬遷同時提升辦公室質素。在租金調整後,新落成甲廈有優勢。樓齡老化的商廈,未來有需要進行翻新。」

近1年共享空間辦公室錄不少新租個案,她認為,疫情令靈活辦公更受捧,而大業主旗下有共享空間租客更有利,「疫情期間,不少公司採在家工作策略,員工未能返回辦公室工作,個別寧短租共享空間辦公桌使用,故疫情下需求上升。同時間,共享空間適合公司短租數月,可省裝修費。甚至當租客希望作短暫擴充,成立特別項目小組,但不想租用新樓面,便可於同廈的共享空間辦公室短租數月,故相信共享空間仍有擴充潛力。」

啟德配套齊 商業前景佳

租務活動勢增加,地區上,有外資代理行代理指,啟德配套全面,加上有大型商業項目,非常睇好該區前景。

對於下半年租務較活躍地區,該代理相信,港島區方面,較睇好鰂魚涌及銅鑼灣兩區,「鰂魚涌因有大型項目落成,而銅鑼灣租金已有調整,商廈質素亦頗新。」

九龍區方面,該代理指特別睇好啟德區。事實上,今年南豐旗下 AIRSIDE 將入伙,項目涉及200萬平方呎,投資額高達320億元。

AIRSIDE 將入伙 涉200萬呎

該代理認為,過去數年啟德住宅概念較重,「其實啟德是一個非常全面地區,有商業、住宅,又有大型運動場,日後若發展地下街等,該區前景更佳。最近港鐵東鐵綫過海段通車,交通更為方便,而 AIRSIDE 提供商場及商廈各100萬平方呎樓面,是地標項目,絕對值得留意。

觀塘禧年均輝申建商廈 今闖關

均輝集團持有的觀塘大業街1號禧年大廈、偉業街111號均輝中心,早前申請合併重建成30層高商廈,獲規劃署不反對「放行」,有望今天於城規會獲批。

據規劃署指,兩幢工廈均在1980年建成,其中偉業街111號曾經在2018年全幢改裝成寫字樓,雖然發展局認為已活化的工廈並不是「活化工廈2.0」的目標,但考慮到放寬地積比率,可增加更多商廈供應;而起動九龍東辦事處則指重建符合九龍東轉型核心商業區的方向。

禧年大廈及均輝中心共佔地9,978平方呎,申請項目地積比率由12倍增加20%至14.4倍,擬建1座30層高商廈,樓面約14.4萬平方呎,當中禧年大廈原由興勝創建 (00896) 持有,曾申請重建酒店,去年由均輝6.28億元購入後便計劃將兩物業合併發展。

消息稱,由灣仔莊士敦道74至80號地下及1樓巨舖租出,物業面積合共約7,517平方呎,以每月約35萬元租出。該舖正對修頓球場,鄰近利東街商場,故平日人流頗旺。據悉,新租客為連鎖餐飲集團Cafe Deco Group,由於舖位面積甚大,故集團將開設多間餐廳,包括台灣「段純貞牛肉麵」、台式飲品店以及一間日式餐廳。

疫情緩和 餐飲積極擴充

翻查資料,該舖對上租客為運動服裝品牌Under Armour,早年以約70萬元承租舖位,早前遷出,如今換上餐飲,租金跌約一半。疫情緩和後,餐飲擴充相對積極,趁核心區一綫地段租金回調,搶佔地舖。

近日灣仔莊士敦道錄得舖位租務,多屬餐飲相關,如莊士敦道20至26號地下02號舖,面積約4,773平方呎,以每月約28萬元租出,新租客為茶餐廳。物業前租客月租約35萬元,新租金較前租金下跌約兩成。

另有代理表示,深水埗桂林街127號地下A2、A3及A4號舖位,面積約367平方呎,意向價約7,350萬元,三個舖位合共租金約17.3萬元,回報率約2.8厘。

Nomura Securities Said to Surrender Floor at Hong Kong’s Two IFC

Japan’s Nomura Securities is surrendering an entire floor in Hong Kong’s second-tallest office tower, having terminated its lease for the 26th floor at Two International Finance Centre last month, according to local media accounts.

After handing back the 23,076 square foot (2,143 square metre) floor, Nomura is retaining about half the space it had initially taken up when it leased close to six floors in the tower three years ago, analyst said.

The securities brokerage firm is scaling down its Hong Kong office space amid the city’s economic slowdown, with the stock exchange having helped just 17 companies raise a combined HK$14.9 billion ($1.8 billion) in IPO proceeds over the first quarter – about 89 percent less than during the same period last year, according to a reporting by S&P Global citing stock exchange data.

As Nomura shrinks its footprint, financial services firm Jefferies Hong Kong is said to be taking over the 26th floor of Two International Finance Centre, as it shifts from its long-time home just over a kilometre (0.62 miles) away on the 22nd floor of CK Asset’s Cheung Kong Center in Central. In April, Jefferies had also agreed to lease units 10 to 12 on the building’s 27th floor – which Nomura had given up in 2020, according to local media reports.

Exits and Upgrades

With Nomura’s latest hand-back taking place about two years after it surrendered 56,000 square feet (5,202 square metres) of space at Two International Finance Centre, the firm’s downsizing this year means that since 2019 the firm has given up about 56 percent of what had once been a 140,000 square foot presence in Two International Finance Centre.

Before giving up the 26th floor, the Japanese brokerage firm was paying a monthly rent of about HK$3 million for the space, or around HK$130 per square foot per month, local media reported.

Current rents at Two International Finance Centre, which was jointly developed by Hong Kong’s Sun Hung Kai Properties, Henderson Land and utility provider Towngas, average around HK$120 to HK$130 per square foot per month, according to market sources.

Although these rental rates represent the highest in Central, the cost to occupy space in the 88-storey tower has fallen by 25 percent since the first quarter of 2019, analyst said, with average rents in Greater Central in the first quarter of this year down about 30 percent from the same period in 2019 to an average of HK$97.80 per square foot per month.

Rents at Cheung Kong Center, which average HK$110 per square foot per month, are only slightly lower than Two International Finance Centre, said analysts who spoke with Mingtiandi. However, the tower’s waterfront location, access to the city’s Central and Hong Kong MTR stations, and its connection to the IFC mall – which is part of the same commercial complex – could be reason enough for companies like Jefferies to shift to the iconic complex, analyst said.

Last month, Central district’s biggest landlord Hongkong Land welcomed a former tenant back to its office portfolio after 15 years, announcing that global law firm White & Case had taken up three floors at York House, the developer’s Grade A office tower at 15 Queen’s Road. The move followed a 2.5 percent year-on-year decline in average rents at the developer’s Hong Kong office portfolio to HK$117 per square foot per month in 2021, according to Hongkong Land’s latest annual report.

High Vacancy

Nomura’s remaining tenancy in the Two International Finance Centre, which is currently 97.5 percent occupied, spans floors 30 to 32, and will expire in December of 2023.

Its lease surrender at Two International Finance Centre last month paralleled a slight increase in Central district’s vacancy rate, which in April edged up 0.1 percentage points from the preceding month to 7.4 percent, according to a property agency’s report.

News of Nomura’s downsizing comes as firms continue to scale back their footprints in the city. Since the second half of 2020, multinational banks in Hong Kong have downsized their offices by at least 312,000 square feet, including Deutsche Bank giving back 104,000 square foot at SHKP’s ICC in West Kowloon, according to an another report published by another agency in April.

“Many financial services firms are adopting flexible working practices as a more permanent way of working and are typically downsizing on lease expiry,” the agency said.

About 11 million square feet of new Grade A office supply is scheduled to be added to the Hong Kong market between 2022 and 2025 with minimal pre-commitments from occupiers, according to the property agency. This surge of new space could result in 17.2 million square feet of office supply over the next four years, with the agency predicting that vacancy could rise as high as 17.7 percent.

甲乙廈租售價俱跌空置率創7個月新高


本港第五波疫情回穩,但商廈市場復甦步伐緩慢。有代理行發表報告指出,5月份租務成交量未呈上升,由五個月高位回落。而整體甲廈空置率連續三個月錄上升,最新達9.8%,創近7個月新高。

該行代理表示,雖然第五波疫情減退,但企業對承租寫字樓的態度仍然審慎,空置率仍偏高,令租售價持續受壓。該代理又指,近日疫情似有反彈迹象,加上通關前景未明朗,相信寫字樓市場在短期內仍然難以快速反彈復甦。

中環甲廈售價今年累跌7.9%

該報告指出,上月甲乙廈售價分別按月跌0.2%及0.9%,當中中環的甲廈售價更大幅下挫,今年以來累積跌近7.9%,最新呎價跌至29663元。

甲乙廈租金亦錄輕微跌幅,分別按月跌0.5%及0.4%。其中,金鐘、中環的甲廈租金仍彈升乏力,近期成交如金鐘力寶中心中層單位以每呎47元租出,較上一手租金挫逾20%;另外,中環中心高層單位最近以每呎65元租出,低市價近20%。

乙廈租金按月微跌0. 4%

不過,5月份錄得買賣中,不乏涉及逾億元的大手成交。當中最受矚目的,為資深投資者紀寶以約5億沽出尖沙嘴國際商業信貸銀行大廈多層,涉及樓面約38514方呎,平均呎價約12982元。

全新項目開售刺激交投

市場上即將有全新甲廈落成及啟用,包括新世界發展旗下的航天城項目11 SKIES及長沙灣荔枝角道888號南商金融創新中心。此外,近日有全新商廈項目開售,如灣仔新盤 Novo Jaffe,這些因素都有利帶動寫字樓交投。不過,目前寫字樓需求仍較弱,相信寫字樓市場會供過於求,對空置率及租金會構成一定壓力。

灣仔地周五截標 估值約17億

灣仔皇后大道東269號官地本周五 (17日) 截標,地皮同樣設有280平方呎限呎條款,地皮估值約17億元,每呎樓面地價約1.5萬元。

測量師:市區罕有地 流標風險低

有測量師估計這幅地皮的流標風險低,全因這為罕有的市區靚地。

這幅地皮位於灣仔皇后大道東269號,目前為教育局呂祺教育服務中心,並將於本周五截標。有測量師認為,這地皮最大優勢是罕有,屬於稀有的港島市區核心地皮,加上這地皮地形較方正,日後開則較容易。

地皮佔地約1.32萬平方呎,以地積比率約8.8倍發展,可建樓面約11.6萬平方呎。不過,以住宅官地計,這不算是大規模的項目,該測量師認為這是地皮缺點之一。另外,地皮規定提供車位配套設施,若在這麼細的地皮增設車位設施的話,需要擴建地庫兩至三層才可提供足夠的車位數量,變相拖長建築期及增加建築成本,並減少地下作商舖用途的位置。

鑑於地皮的可建樓面面積不大,該測量師估計日後單位開則介乎280至400平方呎為主,戶型則主要為開放式及1房。景觀方面則向北面為主,亦不排除極高層單位可望少量維港海景。

生活配套充足 鄰近港鐵站

雖然地皮周邊以學校及住宅為主,但該測量師認為日後生活配套方面頗充足,因為附近有摩利臣山泳池、伊利沙伯體育館等大型康樂設施,加上地皮頗鄰近合和中心、利東街商場等。同時,從地皮步行至港鐵灣仔站及最新開放的會展站,則分別需約10及15分鐘步程。

為了令港人「住大啲」,政府在賣地條款加入最低單位面積280平方呎的限制,該測量師相信是次未必會再流標收場,因為這幅土地是市區的罕有土地,故發展商入標時會較進取或樂觀一點,預計吸引至少10個小型至大型發展商入標。該測量師亦估計地皮成交價約17億元左右,每呎樓面地價約1.5萬元。

市區的住宅官地買少見少,該測量師認為,市區重建將是未來新樓供應主要來源之一,建議政府該盡快調低強拍門檻至最低6成。除外,該測量師認為香港土地並不缺乏,若整體規劃及基建能夠配合,房屋供應能追上進度。

SEA Holdings Pays $79M for Hong Kong Build-to-Rent Project

Hong Kong’s SEA Holdings this week acquired its second luxury residential site in four months, and is on the way to building a HK$900 million ($114.6 million) housing project targeting wealthy mainland tenants in the city’s Jardine’s Lookout neighbourhood.

Having paid a total of HK$627 million to acquire full ownership of Loong Fung Terrace, an aging residential block on Tai Hang Road, the local developer now plans to develop up to 22,000 square feet (2,043 square metres) of luxury rental housing on the Hong Kong Island property.

The company’s decision to develop the property on a build-to-rent basis rather than for sale as condos reversed an earlier plan, with SEA noting a recent exodus of senior professionals and the city’s closed borders as driving its decision to hold the property for the long term.

“Since the beginning of this year, there have been increasing reports of professionals and senior management people who are upper-income and high-net worth individuals leaving Hong Kong and might not return again,” the company said in its announcement to the stock exchange. “Further, the opening of the border with China was delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic.”

Lookout Luxury

With high-end residential prices on Hong Kong island having slid 1.7 percent during the first quarter, according to a property consultancy, SEA acknowledged a slip in demand for high-end properties and also pointed to the Russia-Ukraine war as denting buyer confidence in explaining its rationale for pursuing a rental strategy. At the announced consideration, SEA Holdings is paying the equivalent of HK$28,000 per square foot of floor area for the residential property.

Spanning an 11,000 square foot site on 89-93 Tai Hang Road, the Loong Fung Terrace is located less than 15 minutes’ drive from both the Hong Kong Jockey Club in Happy Valley, and the MTR Wan Chai station, with analysts pointing to the future value of the project as a luxury housing asset.

“Situated on a rare residential lot in Jardine’s Lookout, a prestigious location for the rich and famous to set up homes, the property enjoys good prospects and thus the attention of developers,” a property consultant said, which brokered the sale of the property.

Leasing rates for residential properties in Jardine’s Lookout currently fall within the HK$40 to HK$60 per square foot per month range, another property consultant said. Depending on the size of completed units, monthly rents for SEA Holdings’ project could be in the HK$60 per square foot range or higher, the consultant added.

“Considering the location of Tai Hang as a traditional luxury residential area, we expect SEA Holdings to build slightly larger units (averaging) 1,000 to 1,500 square feet in size, with a total of approximately 15 to 20 luxury flats,” the consultant said.

Jardine’s Lookout, home to billionaires such as Joseph Lau of Chinese Estates, Gordon Wu of Hopewell Holdings, and family members of Hong Kong’s late “King of Gambling” Stanley Ho, is an affluent residential area located less than 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) downhill from Wheelock’s Mount Nicholson project, which has repeatedly set records for Hong Kong’s most expensive homes.

In the same neighbourhood, Nan Fung Development, which co-developed Mount Nicholson with Wheelock project, last year acquired 17 units at Jardine Court for a potential redevelopment project through a series of purchases that totalled over HK$1 billion.

Civil Servants Sell Out

On the sales side, new homes in Jardine’s Lookout trade for at least HK$70,000 per square foot of floor area, another property consultant said. “Not many transactions are recorded in (the area) each year, due to low housing supply, though the area enjoys accessibility to Central district and Causeway Bay.”

Should SEA Holdings choose to sell homes in the project rather than hold the property for long-term investment, the per-square-foot price of each unit could cost between HK$40,000 and HK$50,000, property consultant said.

The developer had won full ownership of the property from the Civil Servants Cooperative Building Society (CBS) Scheme – which governs homes built under an initiative to house civil servants in Hong Kong. Under the scheme, civil servants were granted land at a premium about a half or one-third of its full market value to build homes, though legal titles to the land and residential building were held by the CBS.

Selling the project required consent from at least 75 percent of the CBS members, as well as payment of a land premium to the government to remove restrictions from transferring their interest in the property.

“In this case, we’ve gathered all the interests of the individual unit owners, and submitted applications to the government for premium assessment,” the consultant said, who noted that the HK$627 million acquisition cost included both the land price and premium.

That price was not far from market expectations of around HK$660 million, or HK$30,000 per square foot of floor area, said market sources who spoke with Mingtiandi.

Taste for Luxury

SEA Holdings has been actively acquiring housing projects in Hong Kong’s traditional luxury areas in recent years, the property consultancy said.

In February the developer paid a record high price of HK$62,355 per square foot to acquire a luxury residential site on South Bay Road in Hong Kong Island’s Repulse Bay at a government land sale where it is entitled to build up to five fully detached homes.

The developer helmed by tycoon Lu Wing Chi and his son Lambert Lu already has some experience with high-end sites in Hong Kong island, including its 1 Shouson Hill Road East. Last July a home in that villa project on Shouson Hill traded for more than HK$91,000 per square foot and a nearby unit in the same project sold for HK$79,036 per square foot during the same month.

Hong Kong homebuyers snap up Sun Hung Kai’s Silicon Hill flats for the second weekend in a row, aiming to get ahead of higher interest rates

Every one of the 198 flats on offer – including eight for sale by tender – at the project at Pak Shek Kok in Tai Po district sold out, according to sales agents

The flats, ranging from 217 to 770 square feet (71.5 square metres), were priced between HK$3.79 million and HK$11.34 million (US$1.44 million) after discounts

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP)’s Silicon Hill flats have sold out for the second consecutive weekend, as homebuyers plunged into Hong Kong’s housing market to get ahead of higher interest rates.

Every one of the 198 flats on offer – including eight for sale by tender – at the project at Pak Shek Kok in Tai Po district sold out, according to sales agents.

The flats, ranging from 217 to 770 square feet (71.5 square metres), were priced between HK$3.79 million and HK$11.34 million (US$1.44 million), or HK$16,427 to HK$20,354 per square foot after discounts of up to 17.5 per cent. The results of the eight units sold through tender were not released yet.

The sell-out launch marked the second bumper weekend for SHKP, which sold all 170 flats the previous weekend, a successful campaign that gave the developer the confidence to raise the average price by 0.9 per cent over one week.

“The discounts and the low price were the first reasons for the strong sales result,” a property agent said. “The average price per square foot is lower than the price of second-hand properties in Pak Shek Kok.”

The city’s base lending rate rose by 50 basis points in May to 1.25 per cent, after the US Federal Reserve raised its rate by half a point, the biggest one-time increase in Fed rates since 2000.

The Fed has signalled 10 increments in US interest rates, raising the Fed rate from zero to 2.6 per cent by the end of this year, and to 3.75 per cent by the end of 2023, economists said.

Hong Kong’s biggest banks are holding their prime rates unchanged for now, with HSBC, Bank of China (Hong Kong) and Hang Seng Bank keeping it at 5 per cent, while Standard Chartered and Bank of East Asia held their rate steady at 5.25 per cent.

In the previous cycle, the city’s banks waited through nine consecutive increments of 25 basis points each by Hong Kong’s monetary authority before raising their prime rate by 0.125 percentage point in 2018, passing some of the higher borrowing costs to customers for the first time in a decade.

Still, property buyers are not taking their chances, seeking to get ahead of higher interest rates. Silicon Hill’s strong sales also benefited from the proposed Pak Shek Kok railway station which is expected to launch in the future and improve transport in the area, according to the agent. The project is also attractive to young homebuyers due to its low density, which is more comfortable to live in, the agent said.

Hong Kong’s property market sentiment improved in June, even as the city is still wallowing in one of its worst economic contractions on record amid a persistent Covid-19 outbreak. The city’s borders with southern China remained closed, leaving the housing market to rely on demand from the city’s residents, another property agent said, in a note on Saturday.

Around 70 to 80 per cent of the customers who attended SHKP’s sales launch on Saturday were buying for their own use, while around 20 per cent were looking to add the flats as investments for rental purposes, according to the agent.

The Silicon Hill project has been favoured by customers who plan to buy the property and use that to collect rent. As more overseas students in Hong Kong will be looking for apartments for rentals in the city this summer holiday, it will also promote the rental transactions of the project, the agent said.

中環中心每呎逾80元租出


疫情持續發酵,市場觀望氣氛仍濃,核心區甲廈受捧,「小巴大王」馬亞木持有的中環中心高層海景優質戶,於交吉兩年後,以每呎約80餘元租出,屬市價水平。

中環中心78樓1至3室,建築面積約4948方呎,早前於市場以每呎約95元放租,經多番磋商後,以每呎約80餘元租出,月租約395840元,因上址位處該甲廈屬鳳凰樓層 (全幢79層高),故坐享開揚維港海景,屬該甲廈優質單位,成交租金亦屬市價水平。

據代理指出,上址於2020年中已交吉,當時業主以每呎110元放租,惟受疫情等因素影響,令甲廈租務需求銳減,故交吉達兩年才能再度租出;此外,該甲廈高層放租盤屬市場罕有供應,該廈現時較高樓層放租盤為69樓全層,以每呎95元放租。

鳳凰樓層交吉2

另一代理表示,西環士美菲路12號文光閣地下B號鋪,建築面積約760方呎,以意向價5500萬放售,呎價約7.2萬,業主以連租約形式出售。鋪位現時由壽司店外賣店以約11.5萬租用,料買家享租金回報約2.5厘。

有代理表示,長沙灣道760至762號香港紗廠工業大廈5期低層單位,建築面積約11650方呎,業主意向售價約7340萬,呎價約6300元,另有車位配售。

銅鑼灣兩層巨舖租150萬 疫市升25%

美食廣場進駐 Neway五年前120萬租用

政府即將再派發消費券,令餐飲擴充積極。消息指,銅鑼灣糖街兩層共5萬平方呎巨舖,獲美食廣場租用,月租約150萬元,為近期核心區罕有錄得大手租務,新租金更升約25%。

市場消息指,銅鑼灣糖街2至6號樂聲大廈錄得一宗大手租務,涉及物業2及3樓,每層面積約2.5萬平方呎,合共約5萬平方呎,以每月約150萬元租出,呎租約30元。

據了解,新租客為近年興起的美食廣場 (Food Hall),將提供多間餐廳供食客選擇,勢吸納附近消費群,由於同區缺乏大型美食廣場,相信今年開業有一定吸引力。

2至3樓共5萬呎樓面 呎租約30

翻查資料,該舖早年曾由卡拉OK連鎖店Neway租用,開設豪華裝修的CEO Neway,曾大受市民歡迎,成為娛樂消遣熱門地點。舖址涉及物業地下至3樓合共4層,達7.8萬平方呎,高峰期月租達300萬元,惟該集團近年縮減業務,5年前Neway決定放棄物業地下至1樓舖位,僅保番物業2至3樓兩層,月租約120萬元,而早前亦已遷出。

如今兩層舖位以每月150萬元租出,新租金較舊租升兩成半。另外,物業地下及1樓,原由天馬影業租用,4年前開設Cinema City戲院,惟本年第5波疫情宣告結業,舖位現仍於市場放租。代理指,業主有意把舖位分間放租。

該舖鄰近皇室堡,對面為維園,以人流計並非銅鑼灣最暢旺地段,不過業主華創建投近期積極把地段打造成消費及娛樂集中地,樂聲大廈對面為該集團旗下全新銀座式商廈sugar+,近期入伙,租客主要為餐飲。

此外,第二階段電子消費券將於8月7日起開始分階段發放。香港餐飲聯業協會會長黃家和近日表示,今期消費券估計業界可獲25%約80億的生意額。事實上,近月市場錄得租務成交,餐飲所佔比例頗高,更不乏核心區大樓面舖位。

業界:旺舖租累跌約5 現承接

其中銅鑼灣羅素街金朝陽中心地下A、B舖至1樓複式舖位,面積合共5,200平方呎,曾由名牌Burberry以每月約880萬租用,去年尾遷出,舖位早前獲餐飲業機構A La Carte租用,開設變形金剛主題餐廳,月租料約100萬元。

另外,近日灣仔莊士敦道兩層舖位,面積逾7,500平方呎,曾由運動服裝品牌租用,近日獲餐飲集團以約35萬承租,開設台式、日式餐廳。

業界人士指,疫情期間核心區舖位租金已累積跌約4至5成,現時已跌至低水平,漸出現承接力,而餐飲把握機會擴充,惟承租能力有限,故相信租金未必出現大幅反彈,今年全年較為平穩。

(經濟日報)

 

本地消費撑經濟 餐飲擴充積極

疫情下,通關尚未有時間表,零售業尚未全面復甦,核心區舖位吉舖仍多,加上租金下跌,正給予機會讓餐飲業拓展業務。

最近在核心區一綫地段如銅鑼灣羅素街、旺角西洋菜南街及中環皇后大道中,不難發現商戶組合跟疫情前不同,黃金地段的地舖,漸見有漢堡包店、小食店及茶餐廳等,而第5波疫情緩和後,餐飲擴充更是積極,不少餐飲已租用新舖並進行裝修,部署市民迎接新一浪餐飲消費。

過往十多年,因自由行旅客消費高,核心區地舖幾乎全由奢侈品、化粧品及藥房等霸佔,而承租能力相對較弱的食肆,往往不敵高租而遷出,搬至附近二、三綫地段或樓上舖。據代理行數字,餐飲業於四大核心區租舖上,平均呎租約44至68元,遠遠不及奢侈品零售商。

業主選擇餐飲業 保未來有收入

不過,長達兩年多的疫情,中港尚未通關,旅客何時重返香港,至今無人可確實日期,故此奢侈品零售商繼續採保守態度,不願進行任何擴充,令核心區吉舖持續,個別業主決定寧把舖位租予餐廳,以確保未來兩年有一定租金收入,導致餐廳租核心區個案明顯提升。

網購影響傳統消費 租務放緩

對餐飲來說,主要生意來自本地消費群,而疫情緩和後,餐飲業生意明顯大幅反彈,吸引餐飲業趁舖租低而擴充。事實上,受網購等影響,港人傳統消費模式有轉,令零售業租舖擴充策略放緩。相比之下,餐飲並非可由網購取代,故擴充空間仍大。

醫療集團疫下擴充 大手租地舖

本港在疫情下多個消費行業均受影響,租舖上較為審慎,而近兩年市民重視健康,令疫下相關的行業如醫療、運動服裝等,相對積極擴充。

體育用品店 租務增加

隨着疫情緩和,商舖租務活動稍增,惟中港未通關,核心區錄得大手租務個案不算多。近兩年缺乏遊客下,連鎖快裝時裝品牌以收縮為主,少有擴充,相比之下,疫情後市民着重健康,行山、跑步等有增無減,令體育用品、服裝品牌生意不錯,在疫情下有所擴充。

如迪卡儂、Foot Locker等,近一年相繼於中環皇后大道中、旺角西洋菜南街租舖,而體育服裝Under Armour,數月前亦以每月80萬元,租用皇后大道中萬年大廈舖位,面積達3,900平方呎,該店近日正式開業。

醫療中心 轉戰核心區舖

另外,醫療集團近月亦趁舖租下跌,加上疫情令市民對醫療需求更多,租用核心區舖位。包括年初盈健醫療以約132萬,租尖沙咀星光行兩層合共3.8萬平方呎舖位,另一集團醫思健康,近日亦預租中環干諾道中19至20號地下及地庫舖位,面積約8,200平方呎。

與此同時,由於市民在疫情期間進行檢測需求上升,亦帶動相關提供體檢服務的醫療集團擴充業務,更有別於以往,不僅租用寫字樓,更可大手租用地舖作為醫療中心之用。

疫情緩和 工商舖5月金額68億升43%

有代理行資料顯示,工商舖5月份註冊量錄436宗 (主要反映4月份市況),按月上升約16.6%,註冊金額則錄67.77億元,按月躍升約43%。

該行認為,市場上的負面氣氛逐漸消退,預料在未有重大利好消息出現前,後市交投將會繼續平穩發展。

5月份工商舖各板塊註冊宗數及金額均全綫上升。工廈及商舖註冊量分別按月升約21.7%及13.7%,最新分別錄241及116宗。商廈註冊量則按月上升6.8%,最新報79宗,再創今年以來單月最高。5月份整體註冊宗數最新報436宗,按月升約16.6%。5月份整體註冊金額錄67.77億元,按月升約43%。

料後市交投 續平穩發展

若按金額劃分,5月份註冊量最多的為500萬元以下的物業,共錄221宗,按月升約11.1%。逾500萬元以上至1,000萬元的物業,共錄93宗,按月急升約57.6%。逾2,000萬至5,000萬元物業則錄得7.7%的按月跌幅,5月共錄36宗。逾5,000萬至1億元物業的表現較遜,錄得10宗登記,按月跌41.2%。5月逾1億元的物業表現不俗,按月漲升2.5倍,註冊宗數錄14宗,按月大增10宗,當中9宗為工廈物業註冊,包括葵涌達利大廈16樓1至8室及17樓1至4室,以約2.64億元成交。此外,商廈佔1宗註冊,為以約1.92億元成交的油麻地廣東道530至536號四海玉器中心全幢,而舖位物業則錄3宗登記。

該行代理表示,雖然近日出現感染群組,但隨着政府分階段放寬食肆堂食限制和營業時間,及部分處所被允許重新開放,市場上的負面氣氛開始退卻,不過,最受市場關注的通關仍然未有消息,因此預料在未有重大利好消息出現前,後市交投仍然會繼續平穩發展。

中資企業今年內 港寫字樓使用布局

2022年初至今,香港、中國內地以及全球的多個國際城市,都經歷着新一輪的疫情狀態,從而導致社會活動和商業活動有一定的調整。本文從近期所觀察到的市場活動,自以下方面進行分析。

在港中資企業近期的商業決策或執行進度有所延緩:除卻一些已深耕香港本地且在港配備全面的管理架構之中資企業,大多數在港中資企業的商業行為會受內地總部決策所影響。

在過去幾個月,內地處於緊張的抗疫狀態,而內地大多數一綫及二綫城市的正常社會商業運作未能高效推動。中資企業在商業決策受本地疫情影響之後,繼而因內地主要城市的防控再度受影響,因在港的商業計劃很多時候需要獲得設於北京、上海等核心城市的職能部門審核及批復而有所放慢腳步。

基於上述原因,不少在港中資企業過往幾個月的寫字樓使用決策,更多是在執行2021年底所制定方案。而個別需要在2022年初進行決策的寫字樓使用計劃,一定程度被推遲,或者企業選擇以不變應萬變的策略結合業務收入對未來的成本進行監測,推遲決策,從而與內地管理發展策略步伐一致。但目前各城市因應其疫情發展的實際情況,展開新一輪的防控措施,預估對比較早前,可有效減緩對商業活動的影響。

未來5年計劃 下半年將明確

適合本港發展行業的中資企業,繼續深入在港布局:相比起2018年以前,近年受到不同社會因素影響,中資企業在港發展以一種全新的速度推進。香港作為中國的國際金融資本視窗,中資銀行業、券商、高端服務業等行業,持續可見有不同規模、來自中國內地不同地區的龍頭企業,陸續開拓香港市場。

而在上述持續發展的行業之外,我們可見在過去的幾個月中,個別中資保險企業在港打開嶄新的商業策略及布局,租賃一定的寫字樓樓面,選址策略與傳統保險業相似,為方便目標客戶的需求,選址於銅鑼灣、尖沙咀等零售商圈。

相信在新疫情、新國際關係下,未來5年的經濟發展計劃在今年下半年將進一步明確。其中必然會關係到香港作為國際資本市場的發展定位,而在港或即將到港的中資企業也會隨之展開策略調整升級。預估具備實力型的中資企業將堅定在港擴張,在現市場下布局長遠的發展。

銅鑼灣銀座sugar+ 樓面大合餐飲業

銅鑼灣銀座式商廈多,而華創建投旗下sugar+屬全新項目,最大優勢是樓面較大,加上優質景觀,非常適合餐飲行業。

物業位於糖街,比鄰皇室堡商場,屬銅鑼灣消費熱點地段之一,交通上,由港鐵銅鑼灣站步行至該廈僅數分鐘,而大廈對面維園入口有巴士站,因商廈以銀式為主題,交通配套完善,有利消費者前來。

大廈今年初已入伙,外形上有別於傳統大廈設計,甚有氣派兼時尚。物業提供3部升降機,通往各樓層。

項目樓高27層,一梯一伙設計。銅鑼灣因屬傳統零售消費區,故區內有不少銀座式商廈,以餐飲作主題,由於多個項目規模細,多幢近年落成的銀式商廈,每層單位面積僅千餘平方呎,可容納人數較少。而sugar+最大優勢,是每層樓面近3,000平方呎,面積約2,902至3,785平方呎,標準樓層有4.75米高樓底。其中,12至27樓面積2,902平方呎,對餐廳來說,更適合做生意,亦可打造具特色餐飲。另外,9樓及19樓為特色單位,設有露台,適合餐飲使用。另外,5樓為空中花園,日後將加設傢俬。

位處單邊 望極開揚維園景

擁優質景觀餐廳更具吸引力,而sugar+因位處單邊,望向極開揚維園景,更可享維港海景,非常舒適。

租戶上,現時大廈逾半樓面租出,其中兩層商戶已開業,租客大部分為餐飲,其中3、6、17樓等為日式居酒屋、燒肉店等。而極高層單位全層,獲展覽館租用。此外,項目兩層樓面,則由美容行業租用。

翻查資料,上述物業原為怡景商業大廈及匯景商業中心,2017年華創以約16.8億元購入兩幢商場,呎價約2.7萬元,並重建成為銀座式商廈,整體項目提供67,220平方呎樓面,合共投資額逾20億元。

(經濟日報)

 

多層樓面招租 每呎叫租約60

華創旗下銅鑼灣sugar+已入伙,現時大廈多層樓面招租,每呎叫租約60元。

高層樓面呎租約70

華創表示,sugar+現時多層樓面招租,物業每層面積約3,000平方呎,意向呎租約60元起,而高層樓面呎租約70元。華創指,項目現時出租率逾5成,8月份將舉行正式開幕儀式。集團稱,希望打造sugar+成為具吸引力的時尚新生新地標,大廈可揉合特色餐廳、品牌推廣、文化展示等。

同區銀座式商廈租務上,位於霎東街THE SHARP,近日兩層單位租出,包括極高層全層,面積約1,585平方呎,以每呎約41元租出,另物業中高層,成交呎租約41元。

買賣方面,近日銅鑼灣羅素街8號中層全層,面積約4,718平方呎,以約1.1億元成交,呎價約2.33萬元。原業主於於2014年3月以1.49億購入,持貨8年帳面蝕讓約3,900萬,貶值約26%。

太協荃灣協和廣場 銀主15億放售

連91車位出售 每個值約200萬

內房資金鏈斷裂問題持續困擾樓市。由太平協和集團持有的荃灣協和廣場淪為銀主盤,現以約15億元招標形式放售,下月29日截標。

有代理表示,荃灣協和廣場連同91個車位一併出售,估值約15億元。而該批車位每個市值約200萬元,總市值約1.82億元。若扣除車位的價值,商場部分的估值約13.18億元,呎價約8,059元。

據市場消息指,項目屬於銀主物業,早於2017關閉以進行大翻新。據了解,商場於2018年完成翻新,但一直未有再對外開放,並丟空至今。

5層購物商場 共逾16萬呎

太平協和發展的協和廣場及上蓋屋苑「海天豪苑」於2002年落成,比鄰大屋街、川龍街及新村街,並鄰近萬景峯。上蓋住宅物業早年已全數出售,而商場部分一直由發展商持有作長綫收租。物業現為5層高的購物商場,建築面積合共約163,538平方呎,而商場3樓設約11,266平方呎休憩空間平台。

該代理又指,協和廣場地下11號舖,亦於本年4月以呎價約10.2萬元高價成交,反映市場對零售業前景極有信心,亦可見該地段深受投資者青睞。另外,該區最新成交為樂悠居基座商場連135個車位,以6.5億元轉手,呎價約13,561元。

太平協和主席汪世忠亦為中國地產主席,而中國地產早前因債務問題而遭清盤呈請,涉債9億元。至於由太平協和持有的鰂魚涌兩幅海裕街臨海工業地,近日亦獲接管人委託代理行以招標出售,並將於今年7月7日截標,該地皮市場估值逾40億元。

Baker Circle Dover rolls out third list

Henderson Land Development (0012) has released its third price list for The Baker Circle Dover in Hung Hom, providing an additional 46 units at an average price of HK$23,998 per square foot after discounts.

The latest batch, which comprises one- and two-bedroom homes with sizes ranging from 270 sq ft to 369 sq ft, are priced from HK$6.23 million to HK$8.98 million after discounts.

The third list was released a day after the second batch of 68 flats was launched at an average price of HK$23,968.

The developer has collected around 1,000 checks for the 182 homes on the three price lists, making them 4.4 times oversubscribed, said general manager of Henderson's sales department Thomas Lam Tat-man.

He added that the first round of sales will take place on Saturday.

The project offers 324 flats, including 84 studios, 194 one-bedrooms, 42 two-bedrooms and four special units, with sizes ranging from 180 sq ft to 569 sq ft.

It is also phase 1 of The Baker Circle One - the first phase of the three-phase The Baker Circle redevelopment project which will provide a total of 2,800 flats.

Henderson's other two projects - The Quinn Square Mile in Tai Kok Tsui and The Holborn in Quarry Bay - will each put five more homes up for sale this Friday, said Mark Hahn Ka-fai, the other general manager of the sales department.

The Quinn Square Mile will put four one-bedroom units and a studio unit with areas from 206 sq ft to 264 sq ft on the market, costing HK$4.84 million to HK$6.06 million after discounts or HK$22,663 to HK$23,473 per sq ft, Hahn said.

The developer has earned around HK$830 million after selling 128 units for the project, he added.

The Holborn is offering a studio unit and two one-bedroom units, as well as two that have two bedrooms, with sizes varying from 221 sq ft to 452 sq ft.

The prices for the homes range from HK$6.42 million to HK$13.47 million after discounts, or from HK$28,197 to HK$29,801 per sq ft.

On the luxury front, Chinachem Group said it has sold a 1,527-sq-ft penthouse together with a parking space for HK$64.38 million, or HK$42,161 per sq ft, at its Bisney Crest in Pok Fu Lam via tender.

The developer has raked in more than HK$350 million after selling five duplexes in two weeks.

代理料租金保持平穩向上 西九甲廈供應5年增70%


疫情走勢穩定,為甲廈市場釋出曙光。據一間外資代理行指出,西九龍近年發展迅速,區內未來五年間甲廈樓面將急增7成,並增至900萬方呎,環顧區內現時呎租較核區折讓達7成,備受創科、保險及共享工作空間追捧,近期洽租情況已見升溫,故區內前景值得看俏,料未來五年間租金上升約5%。

該代理行昨日發佈研究報告,指出由現時至2026年間,甲廈供應將集中於西九龍區,佔市場總佔比約29%,令區內甲廈樓面增至900萬方呎,屆時於港島東相若。

該行代理指,隨着本港加快融入大灣區發展,於未來20年的城市發展重點將由東面逐漸轉移到西面,西九龍區的新興寫字樓租金比傳統商業核心區更相宜,現時區內呎租僅約32元,較傳統核心區呎租102元,折讓達7成,加上西九龍新供應亦能提供高質素的甲廈項目,故料遷出核心區的情況將持續,並為各類企業提供落戶另一選擇。

料撤出核心區趨勢持續

該代理續指出,儘管受疫情等因素影響,市場觀望氣氛揮之不去,惟至今年5月為止,長沙灣區內甲廈仍錄淨吸納量約8.4萬方呎,表現屬不俗,此外,於過去十年間,西九龍區甲廈分布比港島東分散,但隨着更多新寫字樓樓面在未來幾年落成,預料西九龍區將會成為增長最快的甲級寫字樓市場之一,與新界西區預料合共可提供未來5年全港整體寫字樓供應量的36%。

租金較核心區折讓7

特別值得留意的是即將在九龍站以及長沙灣一帶落成的寫字樓。目前,九龍站只有一座位處戰略地段、可連接港鐵東涌綫、屯馬綫和跨境高鐵的甲級寫字樓。在未來5年,九龍站將會成為第二個最多新甲廈供應的地區,提供240萬方呎,相當於從現在到2026年香港整體新甲級寫字樓供應量的17%。

該行另一代理表示,隨西九龍區內發展日趨完善,帶動區內甲廈備受追捧,近期洽租量錄明顯彈升,本港一直是內地企業拓展國際業務的重要港口,也是海外企業在中國內地開展業務的一大橋梁,若中港兩地可再度通關,料對中資機構將積極進駐承租。

該代理亦預計西九龍區將會吸引更多來自銀行、金融、財富管理和保險的租戶,帶動未來十年本港寫字樓市場的走勢。具一定規模的租戶可以探索這區的新供應,尋求大樓面寫字樓,或有跨境企業亦可考慮高鐵站附近的供應。

東頭工業區2住宅項目 料增1163戶

元朗東頭工業區近年正轉型成住宅區,區內陸續有私樓、居屋及大型商場發展,區內目前兩個工廈重建成住宅的項目,合共供應約1,163伙。

早在10年前,規劃署建議改劃7個工業區作住宅發展,當中就包括鄰近港鐵朗屏站的東頭工業區,佔地約200萬平方呎,隨着政府透過賣地及興建居屋,該區轉型作住宅發展步伐較其他幾個地區為快。目前區內仍有4個重建項目正在進行或規劃中,包括2個住宅項目,以及2個商業項目,合共涉及約131萬平方呎樓面,以及約1,163伙住宅。

銅鑼灣呎價舖王租金急跌75% 劈至7.5萬續約 回報僅剩0.5厘

本港新冠疫情雖然緩和,但每日仍有一定數量的確診數字,令通關無期,旅遊區商舖租金更持續受壓。銅鑼灣波斯富大廈一個在2014年零售市道高位,曾經以實用面積呎價近142萬元易手的全港呎價舖王,租戶找換店剛以每月7.5萬元續租一年,租金急挫75%,而舖位的租金回報亦跌至0.5厘的極低水平。

據了解,上述舖王位於銅鑼灣波斯富街77至83號波斯富大廈地下N舖,建築面積約200方呎,實用面積僅122方呎,鄰近羅素街,舖位面向勿地臣街,對面為區內地標商場時代廣場,由找換店在2015年起租用,月租30萬元。舖位近期租約期滿,業主曾推出市場放租,月租叫價為9.5萬元,較找換店原月租低20.5萬元或68.3%。

租期一年 較舊約平22.5

雖然租金已大幅下調,由於零售市道未見明顯復甦,加上未有通關等因素刺激,故市場上租舖的商戶不多。因此,舖位改為與原租戶達成續租協議,月租減至7.5萬元,租約暫定為一年。是次最新續租租金,較舊租大減22.5萬元,跌幅高達75%。

是次低價續租的舖位可謂見盡本港零售業的盛衰,資料顯示,舖位原由英記茶莊陳氏家族或相關人士持有,於2014年3月以1.85億元售出,並以每月38萬元售後租回兩年。

不過,隨後因為市道輕微回落,故在同年7月完成交易時,英記茶莊陳氏家族把售價調低6.5%至1.73億元,但無阻物業成為香港歷史上首個實用面積呎價突破100萬元的舖王,呎價仍達141.8萬元,舖王紀錄保持至今。

不過,自從英記茶莊陳氏家族售後租回兩年退場後,上述舖位租金便開始下滑,事隔8年,最新月租較高峰暴瀉80.3%。而舖位的租金回報,更由高位2.6厘,斷崖式下跌至現時低見僅逾0.5厘。

CEO Neway舊址1至3樓拆細分租

毗連上址的波斯富大廈地下M舖,建築面積約200方呎,實用面積約106方呎,去年5月由祥益地產創辦人汪敦敬斥資6680萬元購入收租,實用面積呎價約63萬元,呎價較N舖低約55.6%,足見舖價大跌。

而汪敦敬在購入舖位後,去年11月把舖位租予連鎖咖啡品牌Flash Coffee 3年,平均月租約10萬元,由於租予目前承租能力較高的外賣餐飲店,故租值較毗連的N舖高逾三成。

此外,同區糖街2至8號及怡和街19至31號樂聲大廈原銅鑼灣CEO Neway舊址,資深投資者黃海明確認以「大包租」形式租用1樓至3樓,建築面積約7.6萬方呎,月租為115萬元,呎租約15元。據了解,該3層樓面正在市場拆細招租,意向呎租約48至55元。

Hung Hom flats in demand as Hibor rises

Henderson Land Development (0012) has received more than 1,280 checks for 182 flats on offer at Baker Circle Dover in Hung Hom, making the batch six times oversubscribed, although the one-month Hong Kong interbank offered rate has risen to a 19-month high.

The first round of sales of 182 homes will take place on Saturday, the developer has said.

Baker Circle Dover offers 324 flats, including 84 studios, 194 one-bedroom, 42 two-bedroom and four special units, with sizes ranging from 180 sq ft to 569 sq ft. It is also phase 1 of Baker Circle One, the first phase of the three-phase the Baker Circle redevelopment project which will provide a total of 2,800 flats.

Baker Circle's architectural design consultant is Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates of the US.

Also on course to launch sales on Saturday is Sun Hung Kai Properties's (0016) phase 1 of Silicon Hill in Tai Po.

A total of 118 flats - 110 on price lists and 8 by tender - will be put up for sale, the developer said.

The 110 homes are priced from HK$16,234 to HK$20,168 per sq ft after discounts, it said.

This came as one-month Hibor jumped to 0.38 percent yesterday, sending the actual interest rate of Hibor-based mortgages to 1.68 percent, 0.23 percentage points higher than at the beginning of this year.

A mortgage brokerage service company expects that the one-month Hibor to gradually reach 0.6 percent to 0.7 percent after the US interest rate hike this week, which means the actual mortgage interest rate will hover at around 2 percent.

Separately, a property agency expects that the number of home transactions to increase 48 percent quarter-on-quarter to reach 14,900 for the second quarter though this was a drop of 32 percent from a year ago.

Developers’ aggressive loan schemes could put financially weak buyers at risk if Hong Kong home prices fall, analysts say

Minmetals Land, the developer of Montego Bay in Yau Tong, has come up with a plan that allows buyers to defer payments for two years

The interest rate on the ‘Super Easy First Mortgage Loan’ plan works out to 5.5 per cent at present, versus 1.61 per cent for a Hibor-linked plan

Developers’ aggressive mortgage schemes to drum up home sales could put financially weaker buyers at risk if property prices trend downwards and end up costing more in the long-term, according to market observers.

Minmetals Land, the developer of Montego Bay in Yau Tong, has come up with a plan offered by a local financial institution that allows buyers to defer repayment of mortgage loans of 80 per cent of the flat’s value plus interest to the third year after they move in.

“After making the purchase and paying the 20 per cent [down payment], they can move in,” said Allen Fong, Minmetals Land’s sales and marketing director. “For two years, they do not have the extra burden of mortgage repayments.”

Buyers who opt for the “Super Easy First Mortgage Loan” with a 25-year tenor will be charged 0.125 percentage points above the best lending rate, which currently stands at 5.375 per cent, from the 25th month onwards.

It is higher than the prevailing mortgage rate linked to the Hong Kong Interbank Offered Rate (Hibor) of around 1.61 per cent for ordinary financing plans. The one-month Hibor currently stands at 0.3 per cent.

For a 508 sq ft two-bedroom flat at Montego Bay worth HK$11.5 million (US$1.46 million), buyers can apply for a loan of HK$9.2 million, or 80 per cent of the flat’s value. Based on the scheme, the monthly mortgage payment works out to HK$57,976.

This is 51.6 per cent higher than the HK$38,248 under a Hibor-linked mortgage plan of 1.61 per cent, according to a mortgage brokerage services company’s mortgage calculator.

“When the [property] market is [moving] relatively slowly or the atmosphere is not very good, [developers] sometimes may think up of more payment methods to promote sales,” the mortgage broker said. “The higher the loan-to-value ratio, the greater the risk if a [buyer’s] financial strength is relatively weak.”

The waiver on the repayment of principal and interest is relatively unusual since most other plans require interest payment at the very least, another mortgage broker said.

While the strategy is aimed at attracting buyers to boost sales, most buyers will shift to financing plans offered by banks after the two-year period, the broker said.

However, if home prices drop, the buyers may need to pay extra to take into account the drop in the value of the property when they shift to another mortgage plan, the broker added.

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority said homebuyers should be prudent in assessing their purchasing capability.

Homebuyers who choose to purchase properties with stage payment plans should understand that property prices may fluctuate, and there is a risk of them not being able to obtain adequate mortgage financing to complete the property transaction, it said.

The payment waiver for two years acts as a “transitional arrangement” to “free buyers from concern” and give them more flexibility, said Fong of Minmetals. The loan is offered by a local “independent third party”, he added, declining to name them that as the company wanted to stay “low profile”.

Fong said the company was receiving dozens of inquiries each day regarding the mortgage plan. The financial institution requires documents for approval, but might be less strict than banks, he said, adding that the onus was on the buyers to determine whether they can bear the risk.

Buyers who sign up to flexible financing plans with high loan-to-value ratios may struggle with repayments if their businesses or economic conditions deteriorate due to the pandemic, another mortgage broker said.

“When home prices drop, in terms of the property value relative to the loan, the risk will be higher,” the broker said.

力寶中心每呎38元租出


甲廈租賃轉趨活躍,金鐘力寶中心一個單位,建築面積約2055方呎,以每呎38元租出,租金略低於市價水平。

市場消息透露,金鐘力寶中心一座中高層08室,建築面積約2055方呎,以每呎約38元租出,涉及月租7.8萬,近期該廈租賃,呎租介乎40至47元,最新租賃略低於市價水平。

每月租金7.8

力寶中心對上一宗租賃為1座中層7室,建築面積約1887方呎,以每呎約47元租出,月租約8.86萬,代理指,該單位上一手呎租約60元,租戶於2019年7月遷出,業主隨即以每呎約78元放租,隨着2019年下半年動亂發生,加上緊隨着疫情爆發,甲廈市場冰封,力寶中心呎租曾跌至每呎33元水平,上址業主沒有作大幅減價,直至單位丟空多時,態度逐漸軟化,在接近三年後,最終以市價租出,較上一手租金下跌約21%,亦反映甲廈於過去三年以來,甲廈租金受負面因素影響,所錄得的跌幅。

資料顯示,一座中層6室,建築面積1570方呎,今年4月以每呎約42元租出,略低於市價水平,月租約65940元,較上一手租金每呎53元跌約20%。 去年5月,力寶中心一座高層D室,面積約2343方呎,獲中資企業以每月7.73萬承租,平均呎租約33元,為該甲廈11年以來新低水平。

灣仔限呎地明截標掀財團角逐

相隔近8年再有灣仔區賣地表地皮供應,為灣仔皇后大道東269號、即呂祺教育服務中心限呎住宅地,將於明天(周五)截標;綜合市場估值約16.96億至18.82億,每方呎樓面地價約14600至16200元。業內人士指,市場對同區住宅地供應渴求,料掀各路財團競逐。據了解,新地等將會研究入標。

上述用地加入最低單位面積約280方呎的限制,發展商並未因「限呎」條款而影響投地興趣,新地指,集團將考慮研究入標。而華懋亦研究入標。

新地華懋研究入標

有測量師說,地理位置優越,屬市區罕有新供應;由於該地設限呎因素料對發展商有一定影響;惟項目地盤面積較細,涉及投資額不大,相信會受市場歡迎,料掀各大中小財團競投,料屆時可截獲10份標書。

每呎估值1.4萬起

地盤面積約1.32萬方呎,可建總樓面約11.62萬方呎。距離港鐵灣仔站約10分鐘步程,附近社區配套設施充足。

據地政總署資料顯示,上月僅有一宗補地價項目,為第一集團旗下九龍灣宏泰道14號項目,新近以7.2413億完成補地價程序,以總樓面約21.9萬方呎計,每呎樓面補地價約3307元。第一集團指,該項目前身為一幢工業大廈,地盤面積約1.82萬方呎,將重建樓高21層的寫字樓,中高層單位可享有維港海景及啟德發展區遼闊景觀,預計於2024年落成。

外資代理行料住宅樓價 今年升3至5%

核心區甲廈租料回升 惟舖租恐跌15%

住宅市場表現穩定,有外資代理行認為,即使香港可能加息,幅度料不高,對樓價影響有限,相信今年全年樓價升3至5%。非住宅方面,該行看好核心區甲廈租金見底回升,惟核心區舖位租金再跌約15%。

新盤帶動氣氛 加息影響有限

該行代理指,受第五波疫情影響,今年上半年香港住宅樓價錄得輕微跌幅,但仍處高位。該代理認為,近期見新盤銷情理想,反映需求仍強勁,下半年續有新盤帶動氣氛,相信住宅交投較上半年理想,預計全年一、二手總成交量將回落5.5萬至5.8萬宗,其中一手成交佔25%。樓價方面,該代理指下半年樓價續向上,全年升幅約3至5%。

對於美國加息步伐快,該代理認為按過往歷史,香港未必跟隨美國加息,即使加息幅度不會高,對供樓人士負擔不高,全年中小型住宅樓價升3至5%,有機會再創歷史新高。至於豪宅,因購買力來自內地及海外買家,在未通關下,預計豪宅樓價全年微升3%內。

中環甲廈租金 有望升1

非住宅市場方面,該行另一代理指,疫情緩和下,商廈看樓活動增加,核心區甲廈租務有改善,該代理認為,過往3年甲廈租金已累跌3成,今年上半年跌幅明顯收窄,故相信甲廈租金已見底,今年核心區中環有望回升5至10%。不過。空置率較高的北角以及黃竹坑,租金仍有下調的壓力。

商舖市場上,該行另一代理分析,零售消費市道難單靠本地市場支撑,在未通關前,核心區商舖租務難活躍,吉舖仍多,故預計商舖租金跌勢未止,今年再跌15%。

Experts mixed on property price trends

Citibank expects Hong Kong's property prices to fall up to 10 percent this year amid higher mortgage rates but a property agency believes that they will rise up to 5 percent as market sentiment improves.

Expected aggressive US interest rates hikes will push up Hong Kong interbank offered rates, and therefore, the costs for homeowners while emigration is also projected to exacerbate the fall, said Citi economist Adrienne Lui Chi-ngan, who believes it may take six to nine months before the property market can fully digest these negative impacts.

The one-month Hibor rose to 0.52 percent yesterday, the highest since September 2020, while the 12-month rate hit 2.85 percent, the highest since 2008. "Rising interest rates have played a part in cooling what was a very hot property market back in 2021, with prices down from their historical peaks," an analysts said. Prospective homebuyers will be deterred from buying homes and "on the whole, rising interest rates will cool the market," the analysts said.

The analysts expects that the one-month Hibor to rise to 2 percent by the end of this year.

However, the property agency said that with the pandemic under control and under the leadership of the new government, market sentiment will improve in the second half, with prices rising by 3-5 percent throughout the year.

Meanwhile, at least seven new projects are set to be put on the market this weekend including Henderson Land Development's (0012) Baker Circle Dover in Hung Hom, which has been 7.8 times oversubscribed with 1,600 checks. Hang Seng Bank (0011) said it will offer green mortgage loans for buyers of the project.

And Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said it has signed a five-year sustainability-linked loan facility with 16 banks with a size of up to HK$20.7 billion.

Why rising interest rates are bad news for Hong Kong’s housing market

Hong Kong’s banks, which have refrained from raising mortgage rates so far, could be forced to lift them to keep up with the Fed increases

Property prices may fall once capital outflows accelerate as investors take advantage of higher rates in the US

Hong Kong’s homebuyers should be mindful of the impact of the upward cycle of interest rates in the US as local banks are likely to follow suit, thus reducing the appeal of the city’s property assets, analysts said.

“Those who are considering buying a home need to think clearly, [as] the market has actually started [to see] a cycle of interest rate hikes,” a property agent said.

If US interest rates continue to rise as expected, the city could see capital outflows, he said, adding that under such circumstances Hong Kong banks could keep up with the faster pace of interest-rate increases.

While Hong Kong banks have held back from raising mortgage rates, the possibility of higher interest rates have been looming since the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark borrowing cost by 25 basis points in March and 50 basis points in May to tame the fastest inflation in four decades. The market expects the Fed to raise by 75 basis points this week in what would be the most aggressive tightening since 1994.

The US central bank has flagged 10 increases through the end of 2023. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority increases its base rate in lockstep under its linked exchange rate system to preserve the local dollar’s peg to the US currency.

Last week, the HKMA said global capital flows and geopolitical risks were Hong Kong’s biggest challenges for the next few years. HKMA chief executive Eddie Yue Wai-man warned that the cost of borrowing money will continue to rise, which will lead to more capital leaving the city.

The Fed’s rate increase has also seen capital outflow from Hong Kong, with the HKMA intervening seven times since May – selling US$4.54 billion and buying HK$35.63 billion – to maintain the currency peg.

“This is actually a signal that capital in the market will actually begin to tighten,” the agent said. “Higher price levels will lead to rate hikes, which will be a negative factor for real estate.”

Other market observers concurred.

“Rising US interest rates will drive capital outflows to the US,” said Sam Chi-yung, chief strategist at Patrons Securities, adding the city’s property prices may fall once capital flight accelerates as investors take advantage of higher US rates and stand aside for potential policy changes after incoming Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu takes over the reins next month.

Sam said that investors were always on the hunt for better yielding assets. Ten-year US Treasuries yielded 3.3 per cent on Tuesday, while the yield on office, retail and small residential properties in Hong Kong stood at 2.4 per cent in April, according to data published by the Rating and Valuation Department.

“If [investors] simply buy a 10-year US bond, the yield is better than property. I think investors will prefer it,” Sam said. As Hong Kong real estate is sensitive to interest rates, any increase would be detrimental because of the associated rise in servicing mortgage payments, he added.

Some analysts, however, played down the impact of rising interest rates.

Another property agent said that “a rising rate environment having an adverse effect on real estate values is a fairly broad-brush comment”.

The agent noted that investors with diversified investments were unlikely to withdraw entirely from Hong Kong. Meanwhile, real estate investments were long-term by nature, so any major shift in allocation of funds does not necessarily correspond to just one event or reason, the agent added.

啟德五商業地改住宅勢通過 規劃署不支持地建會反對意見

城規會早前修訂《啟德分區計畫大綱草圖》,主要涉及將啟德5幅商業地改劃作住宅發展,提供約6000伙,諮詢期接獲115份申述,當中約100份屬反對意見,其中香港地產建設商會指改劃會嚴重削減啟德區商業樓面供應,影響啟德作為本港第二個核心商業區的定位。不過,最新規劃署表明不支持有關反對意見及相關建議,城規會將於今日舉行會議審理,預計改劃住宅建議可獲通過。

是次修訂主要涉及區內5幅商業地改劃住宅,提供約6000伙,其中3幅位於舊機場跑道區的商業地,毗鄰啟德郵輪碼頭,2幅屬與旅遊業有關用途包括商業、酒店及娛樂用地。地建會認為改劃作住宅發展,將會嚴重削減啟德區商業樓面供應,影響啟德作為本港第二個核心商業區的定位,把環保連接系統及車站的示意走綫從大綱圖則中刪除,料會對啟德及東九龍的連接構成負面影響,亦會令該區的交通問題進一步惡化。

梁志堅:今日派代表商討

規劃署指,請城規會在審議各項申述和意見時,亦考慮在聆聽會上提出的論點,然後決定建議 / 不建議順應/局部順應申述而修訂該分區計劃大綱草圖。倘城規會決定無須順應有關申述而修訂該分區計畫大綱草圖,請委員同意,該分區計畫大綱草圖連同其《註釋》及已更新的《說明書》適合根據條例第8條,呈交行政長官會同行政會議核准。

規劃署:房屋需求殷切

對於規劃署不支持地建會的建議,地建會執委會主席梁志堅表示,自從啟德單軌列車計畫中斷,改善跑道區交通配套需要替代方案,始終一眾發展商均在相關期望下買入區內地皮,最重要與政府「有傾有講」,今日會派出代表商討,希望能夠落實解決方案,例如增加巴士及小巴路綫,或者將水上的士作為主流交通工具等。最新規劃署回應地建會建議時指,修訂已考慮經濟狀況、市場反應及持續迫切的房屋需求,目的是將土地資源地盡其用,將啟德發展成可持續發展地區,包括社區、房屋、商貿、旅遊、運動、休閒及基礎設施等用途的整體規劃意向維持不變。

改劃後商業總樓面面積雖然由2454萬方呎減少約15%,仍可提供逾2150萬方呎商業總樓面,啟德仍是九龍東發展成第二個核心商業區的重要部分。3個分別近啟德港鐵站、前南停機坪及前跑道末端發展群,以及郵輪碼頭,將形成集旅遊、娛樂及休閒於一體的樞紐。

改劃後商業樓面減15%

透過活化工廈及新發展項目,九龍東商業總樓面面積在過去十年已大幅增加,九龍東 (包括啟德發展區、觀塘及九龍灣) 目前合共約有3120萬方呎商業總樓面面積,日後也會陸續額外供應約1076萬方呎,加上觀塘及九龍灣兩個行動區約538萬方呎,九龍東整體商業總樓面面積預計會增加至超過逾4305萬方呎,與中環核心商業區規模相若,因此改劃不會影響九龍東轉型為第二個核心商業區。

不影響九龍東轉型

對於影響前跑道區旅遊方面發展,規劃署指出,位於前跑道區的商業及旅客相關設施發展群包括旅遊中樞、郵輪碼頭及啟德跑道公園,不會受到3幅用地改劃影響,將繼續發展為旅遊、娛樂及休閒樞紐。郵輪碼頭旁邊的旅遊中樞是一個結集商業、酒店、零售、娛樂及休閒等多種用途的大型樞紐,總樓面面積約247萬方呎,規模龐大,足以吸引人流前往跑道末端。此外,沿跑道休閒區海濱長廊發展用地亦劃設零售商店,整體總樓面面積為近23.7萬方呎,並設24小時開放無障礙通道,改劃建議也不會影響有關零售商店。

灣仔住宅地今截標掀大中小財團競逐

政府持續有序增加房屋供應,不過港島區住宅地皮仍然罕有,灣仔區事隔8年再有賣地表地皮推出,為灣仔皇后大道東269號、即呂祺教育服務中心限呎住宅地,將於今日截標,綜合市場估值約16.96億至18.82億,每方呎樓面地價約14600至16200元,勢吸引各發展商參與競投,據了解,除新地及華懋研究入標外,最新百利保亦指會入標。

上述用地加入最低單位面積約280方呎的限制,發展商並未因「限呎」條款而影響投地興趣,新地、華懋日前均表示會研究入標。而百利保則最新指會入標。

該地盤面積約1.32萬方呎,可建總樓面約11.62萬方呎。該地皮距離港鐵灣仔站約10分鐘步程,附近社區配套設施充足。

市場估值逾16

有測量師表示,該地皮所處位置靜中帶旺,項目規模以及投資額不大,以及擬議發展項目類型在近年政府賣地表供應甚少,加上附近舊樓群具重建價值,及後重建項目將可為附近發展帶來協同效應,預料入標反應理想。

另外,今年首4個月合共17個項目、涉及9979伙私宅落成,較去年同期的4112伙按年大急增1.43倍,是自2002年以來21年同期最多。

甲廈租務改善 買賣仍淡靜

5月份疫情緩情緩和,睇樓活動增加。業內人士指,指標商廈租務活動有所加快,租金穩定,而買賣市場則仍受不明朗因素影響,交投非常淡靜。

據代理行數字,5月份10大指標商廈,僅有2座物業錄得買賣,合共涉及4宗成交,交投仍非常淡靜。上月力寶中心1個低層單位,錄得每呎2.35萬元易手。6月份,華僑銀行集團前行政總裁錢乃驥或有關人士,斥資2,970萬元買入金鐘力寶中心二座高層3室,面積約1,100平方呎,呎價約2.7萬元。原業主於1996年斥資2,120萬元購入該廈兩單位,是次沽售其中1個單位,呎價升值2.2倍。原業主會售後租回,呎租約40元,租金回報料約1.8厘。

星光行低層 1380萬易手

九龍區方面,以尖沙咀星光行交投較多,包括低層09室,面積約878平方呎,以約1,380萬元成交,呎價約15,718元。

有代理認為,疫情緩和後整體投資氣氛稍好,惟經濟復甦等不明朗因素仍存在,而息口或有機會上升,均不利甲廈投資。該代理指,近日甲廈睇樓活動上,以用家為主,相信短期內甲廈買賣仍淡靜,而用家有見價格較高峰期回調,有興趣購入甲廈單位自用。

租務方面,近期甲廈租務有所增加,其中會展廣場辦公大樓今個月錄數宗租務,包括低層單位,面積約1,200平方呎,以每呎約43元租出,另物業中層02至06室,面積約1.3萬平方呎,成交呎租約45元。

中遠大廈 呎租高見75

至於上環區,中遠大廈同樣錄數宗租務成交,物業高層01室,面積約735平方呎,成交呎租高見75元,該單位享全海景,兼屬細單位,故呎租水平較高;另物業低層08室,面積約1,183平方呎,以每呎約42元租出。

該代理分析,近1個多月,機構開始重新睇樓,並趁甲廈租金已有調整,落實租用單位,或個別機構希望減省成本,遷出中環搬至邊緣區如灣仔、銅鑼灣,令整體搬遷活動較年初多。該代理指,各機構在疫情緩和後,重新部署計劃,相信租務持續改善,而租金亦相對平穩。

商廈空置率 創7個月新高

有代理行發表的市場報告指出,5月份租務成交量未呈上升,由5個月高位回落。而整體甲廈空置率連續3個月錄得上升,最新達9.8%,創近7個月新高。

該行代理表示,雖然第5波疫情減退,但企業對承租寫字樓的態度仍然審慎,空置率仍偏高,令租售價持續受壓。該代理又指,近日疫情似有反彈迹象,加上通關前景未明朗,相信寫字樓市場在短期內仍然難以快速反彈復甦。

中環甲廈售價累跌7.9%

報告指出,上月甲乙廈售價分別按月跌2.0%及0.9%,當中中環的甲廈售價更大幅下挫,今年以來累積跌近7.9%,最新呎價跌至29,663港元。

甲乙廈租金亦錄得輕微跌幅,分別按月跌0.5%及0.4%。其中,金鐘、中環的甲廈租金仍彈升乏力,近期成交如金鐘力寶中心中層單位以每呎47元租出,較上一手租金挫逾20%;另外,中環中心有高層單位最近以每呎65元租出,低市價近20%。

料市場供過於求

不過,5月份錄得的買賣中,不乏涉及逾億元的大手成交。當中最受矚目的,為資深投資者紀寶以約5億元沽出尖沙咀國際商業信貸銀行大廈多層,涉及樓面約38,514平方呎,平均呎價約12,982元。

市場上即將有全新甲級商廈落成及啟用,包括新世界發展旗下的航天城項目11 SKIES及長沙灣荔枝角道888號南商金融創新中心

此外,近日有全新商廈項目開售,如灣仔新盤 Novo Jaffe,這些因素都有利帶動寫字樓交投。不過,目前寫字樓需求仍較弱,相信寫字樓市場會供過於求,對空置率及租金會構成一定壓力。

Rate hike fails to deter HK's new home buyers

Hong Kong's primary property market remained buoyant over the weekend in spite of the hawkish US interest rate hike but the number of transactions in the secondary market shrank further.

Henderson Land Development (0012) had sold at least 121 out of 182 flats on offer in the first round of sales at Baker Circle Dover in Hung Hom over the weekend.

The developer pulled in over HK$847 million in sales and plans to launch more batches with price hikes soon, said Thomas Lam Tat-man, a general manager of Henderson's sales department.

The project offers 324 flats, including 84 studios, 194 one-bedroom, 42 two-bedroom, and four special units, with sizes ranging from 180 square feet to 569 sq ft. It is also phase 1 of The Baker Circle One - the first phase of the three-phase The Baker Circle redevelopment which will provide a total of 2,800 flats.

In Tai Po, all 110 units on sale at Sun Hung Kai Properties' (0016) phase 1 of Silicon Hill were sold out. The developer released the sixth price list yesterday, which proves 58 units at an average price per sq ft of HK$18,147 after discounts. The batch, which includes homes ranging from 217 sq ft to 578 sq ft, is priced from HK$3.85 million to HK$10.03 million after discounts, or from HK$17,079 to HK$19,773 per sq ft.

The secondary market, however, saw only five deals across 10 major housing estates, according to a property agency. The number was 28 percent lower than last week and hit a 15-week low with five estates recording no deals at the weekend, the agency said.

An agent said that the market has recently been full of negative news such as the rebound of Covid infections. Also, the public also needs some time to digest the implications of the US rate hike which increases the cost of buying properties even if the prime rate remains unchanged, the agent said.

The agent believes that the 200-odd transactions in the first-hand market reflected the restrained pricing of new homes which attracted buyers away from second-hand deals.

21財團入標投灣仔住宅地 市區罕有靚地 大中小發展商齊競逐

港島區住宅靚地新供應渴市,現存賣地表上唯一一幅灣仔住宅地昨日截標,合共接獲21份標書,掀起各大中小發展商齊齊入標競逐,大部分以獨資方式入標。業內人士認為,由於該區發展成熟,近年新供應短缺,加上入場門檻及總投資額較低,故吸引各路資金群起入標。

市區首幅加入「限呎」條款的灣仔皇后大道東住宅昨日截標,發展商沒有因為「限呎」條款而影響投地意欲。地政總署公布,合共接獲21份標書,市場反應踴躍,標書數目更是近2年新高。

長實新地信和會德豐齊入標

據現場所見,入標財團包括長實、新地、信和、會德豐地產、恒基、嘉華、華懋、旭日國際、遠東發展、建灝地產、中國海外、佳明、百利保及富豪集團、中信泰富、永泰地產、漢國置業、鷹君等入標,另有4家不知名財團,當中大部分入標發展商均表示以獨資方式參與。

會德豐地產物業發展高級經理何偉錦表示,由於該區地皮罕有,而且鄰近港鐵站,因此集團以獨資方式入標,出價會「計自己數」。

旭日國際獨資形式角逐

旭日國際地產開發部銷售及市場策劃經理辜錦波表示,集團是次獨資入標,對樓市充滿信心,正物色房地產投資機會及有潛力地皮,集團資金充裕,現在時機成熟,會多關注地產發展,並已於屯門青山公路有大型項目。是次出價已考慮地皮有限呎條款,鑑於灣仔租務潛力優厚,故看好地皮發展前景,計畫發展商住項目。

嘉華香港地產發展及租務總監尹紫薇指出,集團於灣仔區有發展經驗,而且該區具有特色,認為限呎條款並不會影響出價,故以獨資方式入標。

建灝地產行政總監林綺華說,港島地皮供應較少,而且項目發展規模不大,並以獨資入標,中標後將興建中小型單位為主,限呎條款問題不大。

「限呎」因素不影響投地意欲

佳明集團項目經理曾嘉敏指,上述用地規模和投資金額合適集團發展,未來新盤均以最少面積約280方呎作規劃,認為日後對單位售價或會有影響,但政府已放寬按揭保險樓價上限,料市場承接力仍然足夠。她預期,今年底本港有機會加息,但加幅有限,料對樓市影響不大。

漢國置業房地產部董事李振彪指出,港島地皮供應少,限呎條款對項目投資潛力影響不大,而且近年集團積極物色本港地皮發展,包括住宅、商業及數據中心等均會考慮。

市場估值16億至18

有測量師稱,該地是港島區罕有中小型地皮新供應,發展規模及投資額不多,故市場反應踴躍,稍高於預期,不排除部分財團以進取價投地。另外,區內發展成熟,交通方便,料日後項目落成後每方呎售價3萬起。

上述限呎地位於灣仔皇后大道東269號、即呂祺教育服務中心,地皮設有最低單位面積約280方呎限制,地盤面積約1.32萬方呎,可建總樓面約11.62萬方呎,綜合市場估值地價約16.96億至18.82億,每方呎樓面地價約14600至16200元。

相隔8年區內罕現優質地皮

灣仔區土地新供應向來較少,該區相隔8年之後,再有新一幅中小型住宅地推出,備受市場矚目;業內人士指,項目入場門檻不大,而且該區商業、交通等配套完善是一大優點,區內物業一向不乏用家及投資者入市,加上在住宅新供應罕有下,故投標吸引力大增,導致是次有眾多大中小財團入標的主要原因。

有業內人士指,該類市區中小型地皮涉及銀碼細、風險較低,特別受資本規模有限的中小型發展商青睞,加上灣仔區在短期內難以再有新供應,更吸引中型,甚至大型地產發展商亦有參與投標,可見目前市場出現「求地若渴」的情況。

打造精品高質住宅

有測量師表示,港島區土地供應向來短缺,灣仔區發展十分成熟,而且該區山多地少,難以再開發出新土地,事實上,上址為呂祺教育服務中心,該中心遷出後才有新供應,認為在短期內同區難有新用地供應,由於該地發展規模細,位處灣仔市區,鄰近港鐵站,交通配套方便齊全,屬穩妥投資,故吸引各大中小型發展商競投。

料吸納用家投資者

另一測量師指出,由於地皮位處港島市區核心位置,屬區內罕有的中小型地皮,發展規模及投資額適中,故吸引各路發展商積極參與,入標反應踴躍,並高於預期。另外,灣仔區發展成熟,交通十分方便,新住宅單位供應少,料日後將發展中小型及單幢式精品項目,料開則以開放式至兩房戶型為主,預期日後租務潛力不俗,而區內物業一向不乏用家及投資客捧場。

灣仔區近年少有住宅地供應,資料顯示,對上一幅批出的賣地表用地為捷船街住宅地,由合和於2014年6月以2.33億投得,當時每方呎樓面地價約1.6萬,意味該區相隔約8年再有賣地表地皮供應。事實上,昨日截標的灣仔皇后大道東269號用地,曾於2018年財政年度納入賣地計畫,其後因司法覆核影響被剔出賣地表,直至近年再度重新納入賣地表內。

啟德5商業地3幅批改住宅

城規會早前修訂《啟德分區計畫大綱草圖》,主要涉及將啟德5幅商業地改劃作住宅發展;城規會昨舉行會議審理後,接納香港地產建設商會部分意見,並決定將3幅用地改劃住宅發展,惟跑道區4C區兩幅用地保留作商業用途。

消息指,啟德2A區兩幅用地,包括為2A區2跑及2A區3號地盤 (合併出售土地) 和2A區4號、2A區5 (B) 及2A區10號地盤 (合併出售土地),及4B區5號用地獲改劃。

梁志堅:可為區內設施配套支援

香港地產建設商會執委會主席梁志堅表示,城規會保留跑道區兩幅商業地發展,對此表示歡迎,認為可以為啟德郵輪碼頭、啟德體育園,提供酒店、商業等設施配套支援。

跑道區2幅商業地保留

惟跑道區4C區4號及4C區5號兩幅商業地,則未能通過改劃發展,市場估計將減少1700伙;據了解是因郵輪碼頭需要商業設施配合,才具有吸引力,故此需要保留一部分商業地配合發展。

資料顯示,啟德分區計畫大綱草圖,早在諮詢期接獲115份申述,當中約105份屬反對意見,其中地建會更指改劃會削減啟德區商業樓面供應,危害啟德作為香港第二個核心商業區的角色,而大改啟德區長遠規劃願景,做法較為短視。

西營盤住宅地突接力招標

灣仔皇后大道東住宅地昨日中午截標,地政總署旋即於傍晚公布推出西營盤醫院道住宅地招標,為區內相隔逾30年再現新供應。綜合市場估值約5.6億至9.5億,平均每方呎樓面地價約1.3萬至2.2萬,料再度吸引中小財團入標角逐。

地政總署公布,將推出西營盤醫院道 (內地段第8872號) 住宅地招標,招標於6月24日開始,並於7月22日截標。該地位於斜坡之上,可沿此直達東邊街及第二街,毗鄰私樓匯賢居,鄰近一帶有多所醫院及診所,地皮對面為東華醫院。地皮面積逾5372方呎,是新財政年度賣地表中最細面積的地皮,以地積比8倍計,涉及可建總樓面約42978方呎,指定作私人住宅用途。綜合市場資訊,地皮估值約5.6億至9.5億,每方呎樓面地價約1.3萬至2.2萬。

市場估值最高9.5

有測量師指出,醫院道地皮靠近中半山,鄰近中環,屬港島市區罕有供應,料受市場歡迎,惟項目規模細,形狀又不規則,難以剪裁,實用率不太高,價值因此打折扣,料樓面呎價不高,估計大型發展商未必有興趣,入標財團將以中小型發展商為主,預計接獲約10份標書。由於政府表示將來大部分地皮都會加入限呎條款,佔計上述項目亦會限呎,但未至於影響項目吸引力。預計發展商將興建中小型單位,每伙平均面積約300至350方呎,可建約120至140伙。

另一測量師表示,地皮面積偏細,而且附近交通未算優良,惟市區住宅地買少見少,相信該地皮仍會有一定吸引力。

資料顯示,政府自1985年以來並未推售西營盤地皮,而該區主要靠收購舊樓重建為主,如藝里坊.2號、KENSINGTON HILL及 15 WESTERN STREET 等。

美資轉租中環超甲廈 呎租130元


預租 The Henderson 兩萬呎 趁中區租跌擴充升級

第5波疫情4月放緩後,中環寫字樓租務稍改善,超甲廈重獲注視。消息指,恒地 (00012) 旗下中環全新商廈 The Henderson 錄得第二宗租務,物業一層半逾2萬呎樓面獲美資金融機構租用,呎租料約130元。近期外資公司相繼趁超甲廈租金回調,進行搬遷及升級。

中環全新甲廈罕有,而明年落成的 The Henderson 新近錄得預租,消息稱,該廈一層半樓面,涉及逾2萬平方呎,獲一家美資機構租用,公司主要業務包括基金投資、資產管理等。該機構目前辦公室位於金鐘太古廣場二座,樓面約2萬平方呎,是次搬遷可作少許擴充,而最重要是可升級至中環全新超甲廈。市場人士估計,是次成交呎租約130元,屬目前超甲廈市價水平。

恒地於2017年以233億元投得中環美利道地皮,每平方呎樓面地價高達5萬元,盡破本港紀錄,而物業提供約46.5萬平方呎樓面,總投資額高達260億元,預計2023年落成。據了解,該項目設計上頗具特色,除外形獨特外,發展商把頂層逾萬呎,打造成大型宴會廳。

佳士得租4 設拍賣中心

受疫情影響,本港超甲廈租務不算活躍,去年7月 The Henderson 首宗租務,由藝術及奢侈品拍賣行佳士得承租物業4層合共約5萬平方呎樓面,將為該拍賣行首個香港的常設拍賣中心和藝廊。相隔接近1年,大廈才錄得第二宗租務。

事實上,最近中環甲廈錄得新租務成交上升,不少屬同區搬遷。包括國際金融中心二期 2.75萬平方呎樓面,獲美資投資銀行富瑞金融集團 (Jefferies) 租用,該公原租用同區長江集團中心,趁租金下跌轉租國際金融中心二期。據悉,有關樓面原由野村證券租用,集團早前棄租。另外,上月另一家美資機構景順投資 (Invesco),租用怡和大廈約3.1萬平方呎樓面,機構原租用同區花園道3號,亦屬辦公室升級。

長達兩年疫情,令甲廈租金出現大幅調整。據一間外資代理行統計,甲廈租金高峰期為2019年初,當時中環平均呎租高見140元,其後因社會運動及環球疫情等衝擊,租金從高位回落,至最新呎租約100元,下跌近3成。

代理行:倘通關 中環先反彈

該行代理指出,受疫情等因素影響,甲廈租金調整期已達2至3年,對個別機構來說,中環最頂級商廈租金已跌至相對合理水平,故可以趁機搬遷作提升級數。整體租務市場前景上,該代理認為,在未通關情況下,甲廈新租務維持偏低,相信要待通關,商務活動重現,甲廈才有租務新動力。該代理指,若中港通關,中資機構重啟租務,預計以中環市場率先反彈。租金方面,他謂上半年甲廈租金跌約2至3%,跌幅逐漸收窄,下半年料較為平穩。

中區變「抵租」 機構「去中環化」意慾降

疫情令商廈租金整體回調,過往中環租金處歷史高位,出現機構「去中環化」,把總部遷出中環以省成本,但隨着租金差距收窄,機構遷出意慾較以往低。

一直以來,中環為全港甚至全球最貴甲廈租金地區之一,高峰期超甲廈如國金2期,呎租水平逾200元,即使次一級甲廈,呎租普遍百餘元。正因租金水平高,機構希望節省開支,過往數年不少機構「去中環化」,約滿後放棄中環總部,搬至銅鑼灣、港島東,甚至九龍區。

中環港島東呎租差距 降至55

以港島東為例,由於近年屢出現新甲廈,加上地區配套理想,成為中環機構搬遷熱門之選,過往數年間,屢見太古坊商廈,吸納來自中環的金融機構、律師樓等。

近兩年甲廈因市況轉弱,租金明顯回調,中環與其他地區租金差距不斷收窄,以港島東為例,2019年5月,即中環甲廈租金最高峰時,中環及港島東的呎租差距為85元,隨着中環租金下跌約3成,最新兩區呎租差距降至55元。

搬遷涉及租金外,亦有其他成本包括裝修費等,以往搬遷最活躍時,正因可節省租金較多,長遠計數仍有好處。不過,當中環與其他地區租金差距收窄,機構可節省租金開支減少,同時中環業主亦願降價吸引客人續租,令租客最終選擇留低。

對一些非金融業、專業服務業機構來說,寫字樓並非一定要在中區,相信若要降低成本,仍會有計劃遷出中環。但對投資銀行、基金等公司來說,中環始終是金融集中地象徵,顯示機構地位,當中環租金已調整,遷出意慾難免降低。

甲廈下半年租金穩 呎價看升5%

疫情令甲廈買賣及租務均淡靜,有代理行認為,甲廈租金已漸見底,惟空置率仍偏高,下半年租金較為平穩;呎價則有望升5%。

該代理行統計指,上半年暫時錄得約337宗寫字樓買賣成交,較去年上、下半年分別減少約46%及33%。成交金額方面,上半年暫時錄得約72.01億元成交金額,比2021年同期遞減約69%,對比去年下半年亦下跌約51%,數字為自2020年上半年後新低。

5月份港島區整體甲廈空置率維持於9%水平,錄得約9.76%。至於九龍區指標商廈空置情況更為嚴重,最新整體空置率為12.38%。租賃方面,2022年上半年暫時有約2,381宗寫字樓租賃成交,成交金額約2.17億元,與去年下半年相比,分別減少約30%及44%。

代理行料下半年成交 升至400

該行代理指,上半年市況差主因疫情嚴峻,如今市民已漸適應,相信下半年投資市場亦向好,下半年商廈成交宗數回升至約400宗水平,呎價則料會平穩走向至上升約5%,租務方面,該代理料成交達約3,000宗水平,租金已漸見底,惟在高空置率的壓力下,料租金走勢會維持平穩。

至於整體市況,香港似乎加息在即,該代理認為,投資者較為關注物業升值能力,加上工商舖按揭成數偏低,故此加息對工商舖市場衝擊料不高,整體工商舖走勢平穩,當中以民生區舖位租金最看好,可望升約1成。

九龍新式甲廈優質 將成租務焦點

九龍區甲廈供應多,業界人士認為,由於九龍區新式甲廈質素佳,租金較便宜,未來將成甲廈租務焦點,當中長沙灣區日漸成熟,料可吸引用家及投資者。

據一間外資代理行統計,2022至2026年甲廈新供應涉及約1,460萬平方呎,當中比例最高為西九龍區,涉及29%,而西九龍區包括九龍站、長沙灣、葵荃區等,未來有多個大型商廈項目。

該行代理指,香港在未來20年的城市發展重點將由東面逐漸轉移到西面。西九龍區的新興寫字樓租金比傳統商業核心區更相宜,加上新供應亦能提供高質素的甲廈樓面,相信將會成為租戶理想落戶的另一選擇。

西九新供應 佔比最高

該代理分析,過去10年,雖然西九龍寫字樓分布比起香港東面的非核心地區更分散,但隨着更多新寫字樓在未來幾年落成,預料西九龍區將會成為增長最快的甲廈市場之一。特別值得留意即將在九龍站以及長沙灣一帶落成的寫字樓。在未來5年,九龍站將會成為繼東九龍後第二個最多新甲廈供應的地區,提供約240萬平方呎,相當於從現在到2026年香港整體新甲級寫字樓供應量的17%。

該行另一代理預計,西九龍區將會吸引更多來自銀行、金融、財富管理和保險領域的租戶,帶動未來十年香港寫字樓市場的走勢。

長沙灣轉型 料租戶青睞

長沙灣為傳統工業區,附近一帶在過去十年有明顯變化,近期亦有總樓面達260萬平方呎的建築通過活化計劃審批,可進行改建或重建。除了活化項目外,更多甲廈亦將相繼在長沙灣落成,預計至2023年該區甲級寫字樓總樓面將達190萬平方呎。近日該區大型商廈項目荔枝角道888號多層樓面已售出,包括南洋商業銀行購入其中3層,並獲大廈命名權,現易名為「南商金融創新中心」。

另一代理認為,廣深港高速鐵路成為了九龍區寫字樓市場的焦點,加上該區租金具競爭力,因此九龍區寫字樓市場受很多新落戶香港的內地企業追捧。他相信,在大灣區發展下,配合今年沙中綫通車,交通基礎設施得以完善,將促進九龍新興寫字樓商圈發展,推動更多九龍區寫字樓租賃需求。

有代理認為,啟德、長沙灣及九龍站,前景均不錯,該代理表示,長沙灣即將迎來三幢新寫字樓供應,相信轉變將令九龍西成為最受租戶青睞的寫字樓地點,特別是那些希望抓住大灣區機遇,且享受便利位置前往貨櫃碼頭和機場的企業。

尖沙咀星光行 間隔靈活合各業

尖沙咀星光行佔盡地利優勢,交通便利並連接地標商場,部分單位更可享無遮擋海景,故適合多個行業使用。

星光行位於梳士巴利道3號,於1969年落成,屬於尖沙咀最早期商廈之一。交通上,由尖沙咀港鐵站步行至該廈,需時約10分鐘,物業鄰近天星碼頭,故可坐船前往中環及灣仔,而物業前方為尖沙咀巴士總站,交通工具選擇非常多。

餐飲方面,大廈基座設有數層零售樓面,提供數間中式食肆,而大廈另一優勢,為連接最大型商場海港城,亦可步行至新港中心力寶太陽廣場等,選擇多不勝數。此外,大廈附近亦有多幢酒店,包括地標之一的半島酒店,提供商務餐飲。其他配套方面,坐落廣東道為購物熱點,而誠品書店亦於2015年進駐星光行,為該廈帶來人流。

物業落成雖逾50年,惟近年積極翻新,質素不算差。電梯大堂設於地下,提供6部客用升降機,有效疏導人流。升降機最高只能通往18樓,19樓的用戶需要於18樓經樓梯通往。

位置優越 大部分單位向海

物業享有大單邊優勢,大部分單位面向海景,其他單位則以廣東道及樓景為主。項目樓高19層,其中5樓至19樓為寫字樓樓層,每層約可分間成逾30個單位,單位間隔靈活,面積最細約200平方呎,室內柱位傾向靠牆,間隔十分實用,若把單位打通,部分面積可達4,000平方呎,迎合大型企業需要。

該廈位置優越,故吸引不同行業進駐,目前用戶包括傳統貿易、玩具、鐘錶、會計及律師行等,另近年有具樓上舖概念的行業,如教育、旅遊亦有使用。

成交方面,該廈單位呎價差幅頗大,海景單位呎價高見1.4萬至1.5萬元,而城市景單位呎價低至約1萬餘元。近年項目最大買賣,為日本玩具生產商TOMY,去年把12樓07至12室及14至16至及16A室出售,面積約9,621平方呎,屬全海景單位,物業以1.41億元沽出。近期買賣上,5至6月物業錄3宗買賣,上月中層20室,面積約878平方呎,以約1,229萬元成交,呎價約1.4萬元。本月物業亦錄成交,涉及中層09室,面積約878平方呎,以約1,380萬元成交,呎價約1.57萬元。

租務方面,本月亦錄兩宗租務,其中低層04室,面積約865平方呎,成交呎租約35元;另一宗為低層33室,成交呎租約30元。

夏利里拉家族放售渣甸山屋地

豪宅地渴市,渣甸山包華士道8號獨立屋地,現委託代理行推出放售,市場估計物業估值約7.2億,每方呎約110889元。據了解,該屋地由印度富商夏利里拉家族持有。

市估值約7.2

該物業現為兩層高獨立大宅,地盤面積約9814方呎,面積約6493方呎,花園面積約6000方呎。大宅地下為接待室、客廳飯廳、花園及泳池等;1樓則設有五間套房 (連主人套房)、家庭活動室及宗教室。該物業坐落渣甸山包華士道,位處傳統獨立屋的豪宅地段,鄰近白建時道商場。由物業往跑馬地及銅鑼灣僅需約5分鐘車程;約15分鐘車程便可直達中環商業區,交通便利。物業現址劃為「住宅 (丙類)1」用地,物業將會以「交吉」狀況出售。

有代理表示,渣甸山獨立屋群多年來皆被本港及內地富豪追捧,區內業主可謂粒粒皆星,擁有一間獨立屋地實為身分象徵。包華士道位處渣甸山高點並為平路,故此為渣甸山極優質道路,物業為罕有單邊地段,寬闊門面達124方呎,並面向包華士道,極具翻新及重建發展潛質。整條包華士道只有八間獨立屋,而8號現時唯一出售屋地,相信可吸引市場垂青。

據了解,上述屋地由印度富商夏利里拉家族持有近半個世紀,一直作自用,至近年才遷出。屋地去年中曾放售,當時市場估價約10億。

曾流標東涌住宅項目捲土重來 下周截收意向 補地價料調低

本港房屋供應短缺,港鐵亦配合政府加快推地增供應。去年底曾流標的東涌牽引配電站物業發展項目「捲土重來」,港鐵今日起重新邀請有興趣的發展商或財團遞交發展意向書。業內人士指出,上述項目補地價金額將重新釐訂,相信較早前的每方呎補地價約5072元為低,以增加項目吸引力。

港鐵昨日公布,今日起邀請有興趣的發展商或財團提交發展意向書,並於下周二 (28日) 截收發展意向書。港鐵又表示,在收到發展意向書後,將編訂經甄選之投標者入圍名單,以邀請發展商或財團遞交正式標書。

去年僅接獲5份標書

該項目去年9月截收35份意向書、10月推出招標,當時僅接獲5份標書,港鐵於同年11月宣布不接納任何標書,結果以流標收場。據了解,當時項目補地價金額逾47.65億,即平均每方呎補價約5072元,據指除補地價外,發展商須就分紅比例向港鐵提出建議,分紅比例不得少於15%,並須以價高者得的「一口價」決定勝負,最少為2.5億。

據業內人士指,現時重推其補地價金額亦會有所調整,以增加項目吸引力,綜合市場估值約37.58億至51.68億,每方呎估值約4000至5500元。

去年補地價逾47

有測量師表示,由於上次招標時其補地價金額過高,相信今次重推時政府會調低補地價金額,亦不排除港鐵調低分紅比例或入場價,以增加項目吸引力。由於目前市況前景未明,亦處於加息期,而且配電站的規模大,競爭的發展商不多,將來同區又快有項目推出,料發展商出價會更保守。

料調整招標條款

另一測量師說,若該項目補地價金額不變,將有一定挑戰,不排除有流標風險,相信是次補地價金額將會有所調低,亦不排除港鐵會重新檢視招標條款,如減免部分付款及重新釐訂分紅比例,增加項目吸引力,以吸引各大財團競投。

另有測量師指,東涌配電站發展項目規模較大,估計今次推出市況應該差不多,一般發展商都會遞交發展意向,再考慮最終是否入標。

上述牽引配電站物業發展項目坐落東涌市地段第50號地段,位於文東路及毗鄰東涌北公園,鄰近區內指標屋苑映灣園;項目將建於東涌牽引配電站及其鐵路設施上方,地盤面積約15.5萬方呎,住宅可建總樓面約93.96萬方呎,可提供1400至1800個住宅單位,為該區近年最具規模新供應。

Kowloon may attract more Chinese firms as office-rental cost gap narrows between Greater Bay Area cities and Hong Kong

The average office rent fell nearly 10 per cent in May in Kowloon, leaving rents in parts of the district close to what they are in Shenzhen and Guangzhou

Fewer Chinese enterprises are based in Kowloon than on Hong Kong Island, but the gap has closed significantly compared with five years ago

Falling office rents in Kowloon have reduced the price premium between the area of Hong Kong and mainland cities in the Greater Bay Area, attracting more Chinese firms to set up shop in Kowloon, according to property consultancy.

The most recent and worst wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in Hong Kong dragged down office rental prices, and the average office rent in Kowloon fell 9.3 per cent to HK$26.90 (US$3.43) per square foot in May.

Rental prices in the Greater Bay Area on average are 20 to 25 yuan [HK$23.52 to HK$29.38] per square foot per month, while in Kowloon they are between HK$25 and HK$30 per square foot, according to a property agent.

Kowloon is experiencing a supply surplus cycle right now, another agent said, who added that only outlying parts of Kowloon are seeing office rents close to what they are in Guangzhou and Shenzhen, while the central part is still far more expensive.

“The Kowloon grade-A office market demonstrated much stronger momentum since the easing of the fifth wave of the epidemic,” the agent said. “New set-ups of Chinese mainland enterprises, relocations from Hong Kong Island, and office upgrades are the major sources of new demand in Kowloon that fuelled the momentum. We have also witnessed growing demand for medical real estate in Hong Kong.”

Chinese companies with the mission of connecting with the world prefer to locate themselves in Hong Kong rather than in the Greater Bay Area.

For example, China telecom giant Huawei Technologies has offices in central Kowloon, specifically in The Gateway in Tsim Sha Tsui.

In 2020, Ping An Life bought a 30 per cent stake in the office portion of a commercial project on top of the West Kowloon high-speed rail station for HK$11.27 billion from Sun Hung Kai Properties and its controlling shareholder, the Kwok family. Nan Yang Commercial Bank acquired three floors in the commercial building at 888 Lai Chi Kok Road NCB Innovation Centre in Cheung Sha Wan, West Kowloon, in October 2021. PC Partner also took space in the same building.

One of the property consultancies anticipates that Kowloon West will account for 29 per cent of the 14.6 million sq ft of new office supply the company expects to see in 2026. The area accounts for 7 per cent of the total office stock right now.

“Kowloon West and New Territories West account for 36 per cent of the next five years’ new supply,” an agent said. “This will make Kowloon West the fastest-growing submarket in Hong Kong.”

West Kowloon has only six grade-A offices currently, compared with 19 in Central and 15 in east Kowloon.

The number of Chinese enterprises in Kowloon is around 20 per cent less than the number on Hong Kong Island at the moment, but the gap has closed significantly from between 30 per cent and 35 per cent five years ago, the agent said.

“Kowloon West has its own advantages to attract Chinese mainland companies, with its proximity to the border and the airport,” the agent said. “Particularly now the government is also pushing the linking to the Greater Bay Area via the airport area, linking up Macau and Zhuhai, surely demand will also start to pay attention to this area.”

Another agent however, said Kowloon West would not be a popular spot, while the eastern and central parts of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island will remain dominant.

The agent said that Chinese firms still prefer the core Central business district or East Kowloon, which will transform into the city’s second core business district in the long run.

Hong Kong Island office rents have recorded declines three years in a row, according to Knight Frank. The average prime office rent in Central currently stands nearly 32 per cent lower than the peak in 2019, according to a property consultancy. Another property consultancy predicts that rents will rebound 5 to 10 per cent by the end of the year.

“I would say the downward pressure [on Central] is not large if Kowloon’s office demand surges,” an agent said. “Central has been very mature and companies with more international demand will not relocate.”

Hong Kong developers lower prices to generate sales amid interest rate hikes, high supply

Developers will first test the water with low starting prices, seeking higher sales volume before achieving a higher price

Rate hikes could limit the upside potential of home prices

Hong Kong property developers are offering new projects at lower starting prices to stimulate sales in an environment of rising interest rates and increasing supply of flats.

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP), Hong Kong’s biggest developer by sales, for instance, on Sunday set the starting price for a 217 sq ft flat at its Silicon Hill project at HK$3.85 million (US$490,460) in its latest price list. This was lower than the HK$4.97 million it asked for a 291 sq ft flat in the first round of sales on June 3.

“Developers will first test the water with low starting prices, seeking [higher] sales volume before [achieving a higher] price,” a property agent said.

Homebuyers in the city whose mortgage is linked to the Hong Kong Interbank Offered Rate (Hibor), had seen their repayments go up since March, when the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), the city’s de facto central bank, raised rates in lockstep with the US Federal Reserve. On Monday, however, the one-month Hibor more than doubled to 0.61 per cent, from 0.28 per cent when the US raised interest rates for the first time this year on March 17.

This is because the Fed announced its biggest one-time increase in 28 years last week, which prompted the HKMA to also raise Hong Kong’s base rate by 75 basis points to defend the stability of the local financial system.

As a result, the monthly repayment of a HK$5 million loan for 30 years at the rate of 1.3 per cent above the Hibor on Monday rose 5.4 per cent from early March, before the first interest rate rise in the US, to HK$18,254, according to a mortgage brokerage service company’s mortgage calculator.

“Facing interest rate hikes in the US, some buyers may be more hesitant,” the agent said.

In a market dominated by self occupiers, who are likely to be more price sensitive, such rate hikes could limit the upside potential of home prices, another agent said. The property consultant has forecast a 5 per cent decline in home prices this year.

“The US rate hike will have a cooling effect on investment demand. Buyers will prefer to put their money in banks, which is risk free,” the agent said, adding that the price gap between the primary and secondary markets will narrow to 15 per cent from 20 per cent currently.

An property market index compiled by a property agency, reported the biggest drop in 12 weeks at 0.95 per cent to 180.78 for the week ending on June 12.

Two days before SHKP announced its lowered price list, CK Asset Holdings revealed the starting price for the first batch of units at Grand Jeté development, which at HK$4.37 million for a 284 sq ft flat. The pricing for Grand Jeté, which has been developed by CK Asset and SHKP, is 10 per cent cheaper than new projects in the area, according to the property agency.

The rate hikes could potentially coincide with the launch of about 12,646 units this year and early 2023, according to an estimate by another property agency.

Developers may speed up launches, because it will be easier to launch projects before any further increases in local interest rates, an agent said. Moreover, developers “will need to catch up after slow progress in the first half of the year”, the agent added.

“The market will automatically adjust according to the actual environment. Under the large supply, the pricing of new developments needs to be more competitive,” the agent said.

Natalie Gao, 35, who bought a one bedroom, 400 sq ft home in Hong Kong’s Discovery Bay in 2018 for about HK$5 million, said the a couple of hundred more in mortgage payments each month will not add “too much pressure” to her life.

“But I might want to plan a bit further now, as it seems that this is just the start of an interest rate hike cycle. I am considering cooking more at home and cutting down spending on dinning in,” she said.

$720m Jardine's Lookout house up for sale

A two-story house at Jardine's Lookout with a value of HK$720 million or HK$110,889 per square foot has been put on the market.

The 6,493-sq-ft house on 8 Purves Road is built upon a site of 9,814 sq ft and can be redeveloped into a three-story home, a property agency said.

In the primary market, Chinachem Group sold a four-bedroom home together with a parking space at University Heights in Mid-Levels West for HK$71.8 million by tender.

The 1,584-sq-ft home costs around HK$45,328 per sq ft, the developer said, adding that it has recorded contracted sales of over HK$930 million after selling 10 units in the project.

Meanwhile, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said its phase 1 of Silicon Hill in Tai Po is set to put 72 flats on sale on Friday. The homes, with areas ranging from 217 sq ft to 661 sq ft, are priced from HK$3.85 million to HK$11.41 million after discounts or from HK$16,963 to HK$19,773 per sq ft.

MTRC rolls out Tung Chung site again

MTR Corporation (0066) said it will invite developers to submit their expressions of interest for the Tung Chung Traction Substation Property Development today after rejecting five bids last year.

The deadline for submission would be at 2 pm next Tuesday, the railway operator said.

The project is a residential development to be built on top of the Tung Chung Traction Substation and its associated railway facilities with a maximum residential gross floor area of 87,288 square meters. It may provide 1,400 to 1,800 residential units.

The development attracted five developers and consortiums to submit tenders, including CK Asset (1113), Henderson Land (0012), Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016), Sino Land (0083) and Chinachem Group, but none were accepted by the MTRC.

The land premium was expected to be HK$4.77 billion and the value of the site was estimated to be up to HK$7.5 billion - about HK$8,000 per sq ft by then.

The successful bidder would have to share at least 15 percent of the project sales with the MTRC, local media had said.

It is expected that these terms may be relaxed.

A total of 35 expressions of interest for the project were received a month before the tender.

This came as the MTRC said deputy director for capital works Carl Devlin will succeed Roger Bayliss, who will retire, as the new director with effect from August 1.

Devlin, 53, will be responsible for leading the Capital Works Business Unit and overseeing the company's capital works portfolio, covering new railway extensions and operations projects, the MTRC said in a filing yesterday.

The amount of his emoluments, which excludes discretionary variable remuneration, is HK$4.79 million per annum, it said.

Bayliss will retire upon completion of his service agreement with the firm immediately after July 31 and will cease to be the capital works director and a member of the executive directorate of the company, the railway service provider stated.

In other news, the MTRC was recognized as a well-rounded innovator by the Hong Kong Management Association and Microsoft Hong Kong.

Microsoft Hong Kong said the MTRC recognizes the new possibilities of evolving digital technologies in the fast-changing business landscape and commits to being the industry pioneer in enhancing customer experience using digital technologies and promoting Smart City developments in the city.

太古逾19.6億奪灣仔地 貼估值上限


時隔9年再投得官地 每呎樓面地價近1.7

太古地產 (01972) 相隔約9年再度成功投得官地,地政總署公布灣仔皇后大道東住宅地,由太古地產以逾19.6億元奪得,每呎樓面地價近1.7萬元,貼近市場估值上限。

據地政總署昨日公布,上述灣仔地皮由太古地產以約19.62億元投得,即每呎樓面地價約16,888元,頗貼近截標前的市場估值上限 (約1.8萬元)。

太古:黃金地段具發展潛力

太古地產行政總裁彭國邦表示,今次地皮的競爭激烈,集團很高興能贏得這幅地皮。他亦指,地皮位處黃金地段,甚具發展潛力,有利發揮集團在發展優質高尚住宅項目的優勢。此外,集團一直投放資源發展灣仔一帶,隨即就項目進行規劃,並適時公布最新消息。

據了解,是次是太古地產相隔約9年再次奪得官地項目,對上一次中標已經要數到2013年,當時集團以逾26億元投得九龍灣宏照道商業地,而住宅地則為2011年投得的大嶼山地皮。

事實上,太古地產近年積極收購及發展灣仔一帶地皮,早前收購的星街項目已發展為EIGHT STAR STREET。另外,太古亦已收購皇后大道東46至56號的寶華大廈、蘭杜街1至11號及晏頓街2至12號,並將重建為一座甲級寫字樓。同時,集團亦持有太古廣場三座軒尼詩道28號項目、皇后大道東8號的商業項目。

假設地皮的每呎建築成本約5,000元,計入「發水」樓面10%因素後,每呎投資額約2萬元。若以2成利潤、8成實用率計算,預計項目落成後,實用呎價逾3萬元。而翻查EPRC經濟地產庫資料,近1年比鄰地皮的住宅平均成交呎價約2.2萬及2.8萬元。

落成呎價料逾3

由於地皮屬市區罕有官地供應,上周五招標反應踴躍,共收21份標書,涵蓋中小型發展商以至「大孖沙」,包括長實 (01113) 、信置 (00083) 、恒隆地產、旭日國際等。截標前地皮的市場估值介乎約16.3億至20.9億元之間,每呎樓面地價1.4萬至1.8萬元。

有測量師指出,太古品牌效應下,估計對售價有「提振作用」,預計每呎賣3.7萬至3.8萬元。該測量師亦表示,雖然地皮設立「限呎」條款 (最細280平方呎),但日後細單位成交價約1,000萬元,即準買家仍能承造高成數按揭,所以「限呎」條款與招標反應的關係不大。

另一測量師表示,是次成交價合乎市場預期,估計可發展為中小型及單幢式精品項目,戶型涵蓋開放式至兩房。

未來2年 啟德區增400萬呎商業樓面

啟德發展區日漸成熟,今年起至2024年將有4個大型商業及體育項目落成,帶來約400萬平方呎商業樓面,商業氣氛陸續形成。

南豐 AIRSIDE 料第4季開幕

前身是啟德機場的啟德發展區,經過多年的規劃及發展,近年陸續有多個私人屋苑入伙,而商業配套亦開始轉趨成熟,由今年起至2024年內將有約400萬平方呎商業樓面供應,當中不乏大型商場、百貨公司,亦有辦公室及酒店推出。當中規模較大屬於南豐旗下商業地標項目 AIRSIDE,總投資額高達320億元,今年第4季正式開幕。

該項目樓高47層,提供逾191萬平方呎多用途商業空間,其中商廈佔約120萬平方呎,10至47樓為寫字樓,每層面積約3.2萬至5.3萬平方呎。發展商曾表示,項目的地庫至9樓為零售樓層,合共涉及約70萬平方呎樓面,當中將預留3成樓面作餐飲,並已獲MCL戲院承租,將提供7個影院,涉約1,100個座位。

至於鄰近由利福國際 (01212) 於2016年以約73.88億元投得的啟德第1E區2號商業地,則將會在明年接力登場,計劃興建2幢樓高18至19層高的雙子塔式商廈,並設4層地庫,涉及總樓面逾109萬平方呎,當中9成樓面作零售用途,其中1幢亦會發展為大型百貨公司崇光 (SOGO) 分店。

啟德體育園 已獲AEON承租

除了商業用地之外,啟德區內更有全港最大、佔約28公頃的啟德體育園,包括1個5萬座位的主場館、室內運動場館等。體育園整體亦提供約64.6萬平方呎的零售和餐飲設施,當中約3.2萬平方呎位於在主場館以南的「美食海灣」,其餘約61.4萬平方呎樓面大部分會集中於室內體育館大樓內,早前日式百貨公司AEON已經宣布以總額約3,730萬元承租啟德體育園舖位9年。

同時由遠東發展 (00035) 於2019年以約24.46億元投得的承啟道商業地,將會發展為酒店及寫字樓,提供約400個酒店房間,及12層高 (計入地庫) 的寫字樓及零售商廈,預計於2024年落成,早前遠東將辦公室部分的17萬平方呎樓面,以約33.8億元出售予中電 (00002),將會成為後者的新總部。而地皮比鄰日後啟德體育園主場館,涉及總樓面逾34餘萬平方呎。

改劃用途 減住宅供應

近年陸續有啟德商業地流標,政府有意將區內5幅商業地改劃成住宅發展卻遇到阻礙,城規會上周否決其中2幅跑道區商業地的改劃建議,預計將減少逾1,700伙住宅供應。

配合郵輪碼頭 2地還原發展

城規會早前修訂《啟德分區計劃大綱草圖》,就啟德5幅分別位於前北面停機坪以及跑道區的商業地,改劃為住宅,有望提供約6,000伙住宅,上周最終經城規會審議後,只有3幅獲通過改劃,其餘2幅地皮則要還原保留作商業用途。

未能成功改劃的2幅用地均位於跑道區第4C區,包括曾經在2019年招標但流標未能推出的第4C區4號及第4C區5號地皮。城規會委員認為,由於郵輪碼頭需要商業設施配合,才具有吸引力,故此需要保留一部分商業地配合郵輪碼頭的發展,令1,720伙住宅供應無法落實。

事實上,啟德區內商業地的改劃,早在諮詢階段已遇上商界反對。當中地產建設商會批評,改劃嚴重削減啟德區的商業樓面,從而危害啟德作為香港第二個核心商業區 (CBD2) 的角色,又指因應目前經濟狀況而減少商業地供應,屬相當短視的行為。

料可建總樓面約29.75萬呎

據項目強拍文件資料顯示,上述最新成交鋪位,即波斯富街56號及54號地鋪,估值分別約1.049億及1.1295億,故最新成交價較估值高約5210萬及4305萬。

Swire wins rare Wan Chai site in competitive bid

Swire Properties (1972) has outbid 20 bidders to win a rare residential site on 269 Queen's Road East in Wan Chai for HK$1.96 billion or HK$16,888 per buildable square foot, according to the Lands Department.

The site, which is presently the Lui Kee Education Services Centre, has a minimum size requirement of about 280 sq ft for flats.

It has a site area of about 1,226 square meters and the maximum gross floor area is 10,794 sq m, the department said in a statement yesterday.

The lot's market valuation ranged from HK$1.7 billion to HK$2.1 billion, or from HK$14,000 to HK$18,000 per sq ft.

Tim Blackburn, the developer's chief executive, said the firm is delighted to have won the land tender despite fierce competition. The plot has enormous potential and will play to its strengths especially when it comes to creating premium, high-quality residential developments, Blackburn said, adding that it will provide more information on its development plans in due course.

Apart from its commercial complex Pacific Place in Admiralty, Swire Properties has service apartments - Star Studio - near the site as well as a residential project Eight Star Street which has a total of 37 homes, and was launched last year.

Other 20 tenderers included CK Asset (1113), Henderson Land Development (0012), Wheelock Properties, and Kerry Properties (0683), the government said.

A surveyor said that it was no surprise that the site with a prime location had attracted so many developers given that it is a rare small and medium-sized plot with a moderate investment amount on Hong Kong Island.

The surveyor estimates that the average price per salable sq ft of the project would reach HK$33,000 when it is built and it will provide studio to two-bedroom units.

Hysan boosting residential focus

Hysan Development (0014), which has been focusing on investment in commercial properties, aims to have residential development contributing 10 percent of its core profit in a long run.

The dominant landlord in Causeway Bay will put up for sale a low-rise 262-unit project Villa Lucca co-developed with HKR International (0480) in Tai Po soon.

Hysan executive director and chief operating officer Ricky Lui Kon-wai said it will be priced with reference from those in Kau To Shan, which are currently selling between HK$20,000 and HK$30,000 per square foot. It is the first residential project that Hysan developed in more than two decades. Comprising 36 houses and 14 five-story buildings, it targets businessmen within the Greater Bay Area.

Besides, Hysan is also developing a Urban Renewal Authority residential project in To Kwa Wan with Henderson Land (0012). Lui said he hopes to leverage the group's experience in Causeway Bay to contribute to the retail part of the project.

The developer has sold 125 flats in the project worth a total of HK$900 million.

In Tuen Mun, Grand Jeté - Sun Hung Kai Properties' (0016) project with CK Asset (1113) - has released another batch, offering 48 units at an average price per square foot of HK$16,129 after discounts.

The 138 homes are priced from HK$4.37 million to HK$10.43 million after discounts, or from HK$13,720 to HK$17,474 per sq ft.

SHKP is also expected to put phase 1A of Novo Land in the same area on the market next month. The developer said the project, which offers 824 homes, is pending presale consent, adding that Novo Land will be developed in six phases, providing more than 4,500 flats in total.

In Tseung Kwan O, the first price list for phase 11B of Lohas Park called Villa Garda I, which provides 592 flats, may be released as soon as this week and show flats opened to the public. The project is jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173) and China Merchants Land (0978).

甲廈連續8個月錄正吸納量 上月涉及樓面12.9萬呎


甲廈市場逐步走出疫情陰霾。據本港一間外資代理行指出,上月甲廈市場錄正吸納量12.9萬呎,為連續8個月錄正吸納量,然而,租金仍備受壓力,整體市場租金按月跌0.2%。

該行昨日發表的報告指出,今年5月甲廈租賃市場走勢理想,錄12.9萬方呎正吸納量,為連續8個月錄正吸納量,近期市場矚目成交為中信銀行 (國際),預租鰂魚涌太古坊二座六層樓面,涉及租用面積約15萬方呎,將由太古坊其他商廈遷入。

整體租金按月微跌0.2%

上月整體市場的空置率跌至9.3%,中環空置率微升至7.6%,而九龍東空置率為12.6%,仍然為各主要分區市場中最高;整體市場租金則按月微跌0.2%。主要分區市場中,中環租金保持平穩,而港島東錄得最大租金跌幅。商鋪市場方面,受惠於消費券發放,4月零售業總銷貨額按年反彈11.7%,隨着社交距離措施的放寬和第二期消費券的發放,預計零售業總銷貨額將持續增長。

中環租金保持平穩

該行代理表示,甲廈租金較3年前已顯著回落,不少租戶正積極尋覓優質樓面以提升寫字樓空間質素,新落成甲廈配備新型設備及科技,可協助租戶達致可持續性發展及促進健康的目標,對吸引租戶存在優勢。

該行另一代理稱,疫情逐步穩定下,五月租賃市場逐漸重拾動力,大部分零售商重啓擴張計畫並把握現時市場租金尚處低位的機會,承租核心區商鋪。

林子峰13.6億沽運頭塘商場

民生區鋪位於疫市下表現「硬淨」,市場再錄大手成交。由資深投資者林子峰持有的大埔運頭塘商場連一籃子車位易手,作價13.6億,呎價1.7萬,持貨6年帳面勁賺5.5億,買家為華創建投,料回報約3.5厘。

資深投資者林子峰表示,大埔曉運路10號運頭塘商場,項目總樓面約8萬方呎,以13.6億成交,並連414個車位,呎價約1.7萬,買家為華創建投,項目早於2016年以約8.1億買入,持貨6年帳面獲利5.5億,期間升值約67%。

林氏續指出,儘管民生區鋪位於疫市下仍具支持,惟受美國聯儲局加息等利淡因素影響,市場觀望氣氛揮之不去,故沽出上址作換貨用途。

華創建投承接

據業內人士指出,上述項目商戶組合多元化,包括大型超市、連鎖食肆及便利店,同時有各類零售商,主攻民生客源,於疫市下租金表現穩定,項目商鋪現時獲全數承租,以月租收入約400萬計,料租金回報約3.5厘。

事實上,林子峰於疫市下頻頻沽貨,由他拆售香港仔大道208號裕輝商業中心1206室,建築面積約575方呎,於今年4月以約526萬售出,呎價約9148元。林子峰於2019年以約3億購入該廈一籃子鋪位及寫字樓,涉及樓面約42751方呎,及後林氏將上址拆售73個單位,面積由285方呎至全層約2270方呎。

尖沙咀星光行2單位 每呎叫價1.75萬起

受第5波疫情影響,商廈成交一度放緩,但隨着疫情緩和、防疫措施放寬下,交投亦顯著反彈,連帶商廈業主亦加緊放售貴重物業,而坐落於尖沙咀核心地段上的星光行,現有低層及高層單位,連租約放售,每平方呎叫價由1.75萬元起。

面積2189呎起 連租約放售

有代理表示,有業主放售尖沙咀星光行低層33至35室及高層17至18室,面積約由2,189至4,350呎平方呎,均連租約出售,每平方呎售價約由1.75萬元起。

星光行位於尖沙咀梳士巴利道3號,坐落於核心商業區,屬於分散業權的商廈,景觀可望內園及全海景,附近一帶配套成熟,吸引不少企業進駐,例如升學顧問、會計、旅遊等,部分企業更於該廈設立總部。

該代理稱,星光行是尖沙咀區內優質寫字樓大廈的指標,物業地理位置優越,鄰近天星碼頭,方便經碼頭前往港島進行商務會議,同時設有不同巴士路綫來往各區,由物業步行至港鐵尖沙咀L6出口僅約5分鐘路程,另外,星光行下層設有中式酒樓及快餐店,步行至新港中心及海港城也有各式餐飲選擇。該代理續指,商廈成交年初時受第5波疫情影響下,至近期疫情放緩,防疫措施放寬,成交亦隨之反彈,反映資金重拾入市信心,料在防疫措施逐步鬆綁下,有利整體經濟表現回勇,商廈市道亦可望持續反彈,預計寫字樓買賣及租賃活動將會逐步增加。

旺角商業發展密度勢增兩成 擬寬高限至30米 彌敦道一帶地積比可達15倍

市區重建局 (市建局) 去年公布油麻地和旺角地區大型規劃研究 (下稱油旺研究) 的建議,提出多項發展建議,並即將由政府啟動相關的法定規劃程序。政府率先就旺角一帶提出大綱圖的修訂,放寬區內住宅和商業用地的高度限制15米至30米,而彌敦道兩旁的「商業」地帶,政府亦因應油旺研究的建議,擬取消現時規劃上設定的地積比率上限12倍,令有關土地的可建地積比率變相可增加至15倍,發展密度大增兩成。

市建局進行的油旺研究,牽涉城規會轄下3幅分區計劃大綱圖,規劃署率先就《旺角分區計劃大綱圖》,向城規會提出修訂建議,最新修訂內容曝光。

該大綱圖涵蓋界限街與登打士街之間的大部分旺角和大角咀範圍,其中位於彌敦道兩旁的「商業」地帶,現有高限定為110米 (主水平基準以上.下同) 和130米兩級,大綱圖的註釋中也訂明地積比率上限為12倍。

規劃署因應油旺研究建議,向城規會提出取消大綱圖中商業地帶的地積比率限制,令有關用地日後的發展密度只須符合《建築物(規劃)規例》要求,即地積比率上限為15倍。為配合相應安排,相關土地的高限一律放寬30米,即增加至140米和160米。

參考規劃署的文件,現時鄰近港鐵旺角站和太子站的部分彌敦道兩旁商業地帶,包括旺角中心等建築物,現有高限為130米,意味日後可放寬至160米;而雅蘭中心和始創中心等旺角和太子一帶地標建築,高限則由110米放寬至140米。

通菜街花園街改混合用途

另外,水渠道和登打士街之間的通菜街和花園街一帶地皮,以及花墟道旁邊的用地,現時屬於「住宅 (甲類)」用途,規劃署建議改為「混合用途」地帶,地積比率上限維持9倍,當中住用地積比率上限亦維持7.5倍,但放寬只有最低3層才可以用作商業用途的限制。

至於大綱圖中大部分的住宅用地,包括「住宅 (甲類)」、「住宅 (甲類) 3」和「住宅 (戊類)」用途,雖然地積比率上限維持9倍,但住用部分的上限則由7.5倍放寬至8.5倍,令住用和非住宅樓面比例可按發展方案存在更大彈性。而就混合用途和住宅用途土地,高限一律由100米放寬15%,至115米。城規會將於周五 (24日) 討論前述建議,如果城規會委員同意有關修訂,稍後將正式進入法定規劃程序,包括修訂大綱圖、接受和聽取公眾的申述及意見等。

粉嶺高球場建住宅 城規開綠燈

另外,規劃署上周五 (17日) 就粉嶺高爾夫球場位於粉錦公路以東約32公頃土地作住宅發展,向城規會提交《粉嶺/上水擴展區分區計劃大綱圖》的建議,城規會延至昨天 (22日) 作出決定,同意把該大綱圖刊憲,稍後將正式刊憲進入規劃程序。

Villa Garda I unveils first prices

Villa Garda I, phase 11B of Lohas Park in Tseung Kwan O, has unveiled the first price list, offering 128 homes at an average per square foot price of HK$17,888 after discounts, around 10 percent cheaper than the secondary properties in the same area.

The project with 592 flats is jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173) and China Merchants Land (0978).

K Wah said showrooms will open to the public from today and future batches may have room for price hikes.

A property agent said that homes in the first batch have a 5 to 10 percent discount on second-hand properties in the same area and are 15 to 20 percent cheaper than new homes in the area.

The agent expects that the annual rental return of the project to reach 2.5 to 3 percent and a price increase of 1 to 2 percent might be seen in the next batch.

In Sham Shui Po, the project developed by Carrianna Group's (0126) property unit with Choice Holdings has been named The Vim.

It provides 115 studio and one-bedroom units.

This came as one-month Hibor jumped to 0.71 percent yesterday, sending the actual interest rate of Hibor-based mortgages to 2.01 percent.

A mortgage service firm expects that the real mortgage rate to gradually reach the cap of 2.5 percent after the expected US interest rate hike next month.

But even so, the extra weight on homeowners with a 30-year mortgage loan would only be HK$500 per month per HK$1 million of mortgages compared to the 1.5 percent interest rate seen in May, the mortgage service firm said.

In the office market, a real estate consultancy said that the overall net absorption of Hong Kong's Grade A office reached 129,000 square feet last month, marking the eighth consecutive month of positive take-up.

The real estate consultancy stated that the overall office vacancy rate dropped to 9.3 percent by the end of last month. The vacancy rate in Central rose slightly to 7.6 percent, while Kowloon East continued to register the highest vacancy rate among major office submarkets at 12.6 percent. Overall rents slid by 0.2 percent month-on-month in May, it said.

佳源1.12億沽中環皇后大道中九號 面積3290方呎 每呎3.42萬 低市價15%


疫情持續發酵,加上「息魔」來襲,工商鋪市況觀望,惟核心區甲廈仍錄成交,由佳源持有的中環皇后大道中九號中層單位,屬二按物業,以約1.126億易手,每呎造價約3.42萬,低市價約15%,原業主持貨9年帳面獲利1900萬,物業期間升值約兩成。

甲廈市場於疫市下備受壓力,消息指,中環皇后大道中九號1403室,建築面積3290方呎,以約1.126億售出,呎價約34236元,低市價約15%。據悉,原業主為佳源集團,早於2013年以9360萬購入,惟於今年初曾承造二按,以易手價計,持貨9年帳面獲利1900萬,幅度20%。

今年初曾承造2

本報昨日就上述消息向佳源作出查詢,惟於截稿前未獲回覆。

據地產代理透露,上址為佳源自用物業,早前已承造二按,加上佳源近期屢傳財困,故料因此出售旗下物業套現,成交價明顯屬低市價水平,幅度介乎15%至20%。

據代理行資料顯示,該甲廈近期成交,對上一宗成交需追溯至去年5月,為該甲廈30樓5室,建築面積2800方呎,當時以1.26億售出,呎價約4.5萬。

持貨9年升值20%

事實上,皇后大道中九號為核心區焦點甲廈之一,資料顯示,永倫集團於2018年中以約5.14億購入該甲廈頂層全層,呎價6萬,創當時甲廈呎價新高。

此外,該甲廈近期租金亦備受壓力,資料顯示,該甲廈高層6室,建築面積約2980方呎,於上月以每呎約70元租出,月租約208600元。據代理指出,上址位處大單邊,外望禮賓府景致,上一手租金為每呎103元,惟租戶於去年6月撤出交吉,單位於丟空近一年再度租出,租金急挫約32%。業主於2018年9月以約1.635億購入,以新租金計,回報1.53厘,屬偏低水平。

據業內人士指出,儘管本港疫情持續放緩,惟中港兩地至今仍然通關無期,加上內地疫情仍然嚴峻,令甲廈租務需求仍然疲弱,加上美國聯儲局早前宣布加息,亦預期會持續縮減資產負債表規模,加上俄烏戰爭持續發酵,令甲廈租務市場觀望氣氛揮之不去,料核心區甲廈租售價於短期內仍備受壓力。

港府部門擴充 租東九商廈11萬呎

配合「起動九龍東」 涉 One Kowloon 企業廣場五期 Landmark East

配合特區新班子,政府及相關部門近日進行擴充。據悉,政府委託產業署近月落實承租東九龍多個商廈,包括 One KowloonLandmark East企業廣場五期等,合共逾11萬平方呎,料涉及衞生署、港台等機構使用。業界認為因該區甲廈樓面大,亦配合「起動九龍東」計劃作帶頭作用,故持續進行擴充。

業內人士指,政府近月委託產業署,於東九龍研究多幢商廈樓面,並落實租用部分樓層。其中位於九龍灣 One Kowloon 10樓全層、26及35樓單位,面積合共約5.2萬平方呎,成交呎租約26元。

衞生署港台等部門進駐

消息指,租用該批樓面,料作衞生署及相關機機辦公室,主要處理個案追蹤、電子針卡等部門。事實上,過往亦有政府部門租用該廈,包括土地註冊署等,如今連同是次逾5萬平方呎新租樓面,政府部門合共佔用逾8萬平方呎。

至於同區的企業廣場五期商廈,即MegaBox商場樓上寫字樓,物業27樓全層,面積約1.7萬平方呎,獲政府部門租用,呎租料約25元。據了解,該層樓面原由運輸及快遞公司DHL租用,集團早前把總部遷至觀塘。

另外,產業署亦於觀塘租用商廈,其中 Landmark East 18樓全層,面積約2.8萬平方呎,成交呎租約25元。據了解,該層作香港電台使用。由於早前港台教育電視大樓地皮售出,故有需要租用樓面作辦公室。

此外,觀塘鴻圖道威明中心3層,合共約2.3萬平方呎,亦獲產業署租用,據悉,該廈屬工廈活化項目,呎租約20元。

國務院日前公布第六屆特區政府26名主要官員任命,新政府架構擴大至3司15局,預計所需人手及辦公樓面同步增加。同時間,持續兩年多的疫情,令衞生署相關的人手大幅增加,故租用的辦公室亦需較多。據了解,是次政府租用的樓面,多屬全新需求,反映政府因應需要,擴大服務範圍。

代理行:東九選擇多 樓面較大

據代理行資料顯示,目前東九龍甲廈呎租水平約25至30元,而區內乙級包括活化商廈,呎租約19至24元,而該區空置率約15.4%,為近十多年來新高。由於東九龍有較多商廈樓面選擇,加上租金水平較其他商業區便宜,較為適合政府部門使用。

該行代理指出,政府多年來主要租用東九龍商廈,在實用角度方面,東九龍甲廈分層面積較大,每層達2至3萬平方呎,較西九龍理想,而過去十年來,政府部門包括社會福利署等,亦設於東九龍,是次再於同區新租一批樓面,可把多個政府部門集中在該區,方便管理,亦配合「起動九龍東」計劃,相信未來仍會於該區擴充。

東九龍供應邁高峰 考驗吸納量

政府部門及公營機構,成為今年九龍區租務主力,一方面因應疫情需要增加服務,同時間亦反映整體商業活動仍疲弱,私人機構在擴充樓面上甚少。

今年東九龍整體商廈租務頗淡靜,受疫情及未通關影響,各大型機構搬遷、擴充活動亦偏低,反而區內主要租務,不少來自政府部門及公營機構。今年東九龍上半年錄得最大手租務,為新地 (00016) 旗下巧明街重建項目,明年落成,該項目逾10萬平方呎樓面,獲積金局租用,呎租料約30元。據悉,是次積金局將把多個部門整合。

東九傳統大客戶 近年擴充不多

事實上,積金局屬公營機構,若連同其他政府相關部門等,上半年已累積租用不少區內樓面。相比之下,東九龍傳統兩大商廈客戶,銀行及保險業,近一年擴充個案不算多,個別銀行更把原使用樓面放棄,重新對外招租。

環球疫情持續兩年多,跨國企業生意受一定程度影響,故近一年擴充業務個案極少,亦因前景未明,很多機構選擇按兵不動,待市況稍明朗才作部署,取態保守,故此搬遷活動仍未見頻繁。相比之下,政府部門主要服務市民,當有一定基本需求便新增樓面,故在疫市下,成為租務主力之一。

租務後市上,資料顯示,今明兩年為甲廈供應高峰期,並主要集中於九龍區包括長沙灣、東九龍等,商業活動若尚未回復疫情前水平,吸納寫字樓上有難度,將令空置率進一步推高,而目前空置率偏高的東九龍,未來數年有大批新落成樓面,面對考驗更大。

起動九龍東 啟德商業定位重

「起動九龍東」計劃早於2011年《施政報告》提出,目標是將九龍東建構成香港第二個核心商業區 (CBD2),而在計劃帶動下,九龍東一帶的發展潛力進一步釋放,單計啟德區,未來兩年已經新增約400萬平方呎商業樓面。

未來兩年 新增約400萬呎樓面

九龍東的土地面積約5,253萬平方呎,涵蓋啟德發展區、觀塘和九龍灣商貿區,而在2017年施政綱領亦宣布,計劃將進一步延伸至新蒲崗。在該計劃推動下,九龍東的商業發展加快,尤其是啟德一帶。

啟德的商業發展項目正如火如荼地進行,初步估計今年至2024年會提供涉約400萬平方呎商業樓面,包括區內最高的南豐旗下商業地標項目 AIRSIDE,及利福  (01212) 的雙子塔式商廈等。後者的其中1幢亦會發展為百貨公司崇光 (SOGO)。此外,啟德亦擬建構全長1,500米的嶄新地下購物街,橫跨九龍城、啟德至新蒲崗。

而早前政府提出將啟德5商業地改劃為6,000伙住宅的方案亦遇阻,最終只有3幅地皮成功改劃,意味有兩幅位處跑道區的用地將繼續保留作商業用途,可見啟德的商業定位及氣氛未受影響。

新甲廈質素高 吸引機構預租

今、明兩年為甲廈新供應高峰期,下半年至明年初相繼有新式甲廈落成,因設施全新,近日相繼有大型機構預租。

甲廈租務市場有所改善,而市場焦點落在即將落成的甲廈項目。其中,明年落成的中環 The Henderson 新近錄得預租,消息指,該廈1層半樓面,涉及逾2萬平方呎,獲一家美資金融機構租用,公司主要業務包括基金投資、資產管理等。該機構目前辦公室位於金鐘太古廣場二座,樓面約2萬平方呎,是次搬遷可作少許擴充,以及進行升級。市場人士估計,是次成交呎租約130元,屬目前超甲廈市價水平。

中環 The Henderson 錄第2宗預租

恒地 (00012) 於2017年以233億元投得中環美利道地皮,每平方呎樓面地價高達5萬元,盡破本港紀錄,而物業提供約46.5萬平方呎樓面。即使中環新供應極罕有,疫情衝擊商業活動,超甲廈租務不算活躍,去年7月 The Henderson 首宗租務,由藝術及奢侈品拍賣行佳士得承租物業4層合共約5萬平方呎樓面,將為該拍賣行首個香港的常設拍賣中心和藝廊。相隔接近1年,大廈才錄得第2宗租務。

至於非核心區,下半年將落成的鰂魚涌太古坊新商廈,亦錄得租賃。太古坊二座低層及中層各3層樓面,合共6層樓面,以每層面積約2.2萬平方呎計算,涉逾13萬平方呎。按面積計,為疫情後港島區最大手甲廈租務成交個案。新租客為大型中資機構中信銀行 (國際),集團原租用太古坊的德宏大廈多層,是次搬至同屬太古地產 (01972) 旗下物業,而太古坊二座為全新甲廈,質素大幅提升,樓面上未有擴充。

太古坊二座 獲中信銀行進駐

另外,該廈錄得另1宗全層成交,涉及物業中層全層逾2萬平方呎,呎租料約50元,新租客為顧問公司Boston Consulting,該公司原租太古坊一座約1萬平方呎單位,如今搬至二座。

至於新供應項目甚多的東九龍,亦有大手預租。新地 (00016) 觀塘巧明街98號,當中8萬平方呎樓面,獲積金局租用,呎租料約30元。該機構現租用觀塘、葵涌等甲廈,料作整合業務及擴充。據了解,項目總樓面115萬平方呎,其中兩幢寫字樓合共約65萬平方呎,而兩幢樓面每層面積,分別約2.2萬及1.3萬平方呎。翻查資料,項目前身為九巴車廠用地,重建成商廈,預計明年落成。

分析指,今、明兩年為商廈供應高峰期,多達750萬平方呎樓面陸續登場,由於疫情影響租務市場,空置率偏高,故新落成甲廈難免面對競爭,業主亦願以較便宜租金,吸納新租客進駐。同時間,因新商廈不論在設備、配套均理想,個別更屬超甲級質素,在租金稍回調下,吸引租客搬遷,故相信預租情況持續理想。

馬時亨長女 1.1億購羅素街8號全層

由歌手麥浚龍的父親、中建富通 (00138) 主席麥紹棠持有,位於銅鑼灣羅素街8號高層全層,早前以1.1億元蝕賣。其新買家背景曝光,為港鐵 (00066) 前主席馬時亨長女劉馬露明。

原業主麥浚龍父 帳面蝕3900

資料顯示,銅鑼灣羅素街8號英皇鐘錶珠寶中心高層全層,建築面積約4,718平方呎,早前以1.1億元沽出,呎價約23,315元。該單位原由歌手麥浚龍的父親麥紹棠旗下華朗置業有限公司持有,他早於2014年3月以1.49億元購入單位持貨約8年,是次沽貨帳面蝕約3,900萬元,單位貶值約26%。

而新買家為全仁健康產品有限公司 (TM WELLNESS LIMITED),公司董事為劉馬露明 (LAU MA, LO MING CHRISTINE),亦即港鐵前主席馬時亨長女。

美容公司17萬租用 回報1.85

據了解,單位現由美容公司每月以約17萬元租用,意味新買家可享租金回報約1.85厘。

值得一提的是,上述物業在2014年至2022年期間,曾三度向同一大型銀行抵押貸款,4月份亦曾承造「三按」,但未知所牽涉的相關貸款金額。

元朗晉美工業大廈全幢易手,作價2.6億,平均呎價6548元;業內人士指,上址適合作數據中心,加上全幢工廈屬市場罕有供應,成交價屬市價水平。

市場消息指出,元朗宏業東街8號晉美工業大廈全幢,涉及地廠、閣樓、1樓至2樓及天台,總建築樓面39706方呎,作價約2.6億易手,呎價約6548元。

港數據中心樓面7年飆1.2倍 今年預測達1100萬呎 業界:供不應求

近年本港數據中心市場掀起變革熱潮。據統計,2015年至2025年的10年間數據中心總樓面供應量每年均錄得增幅,其中2015年約501萬方呎,今年預測將狂飆至約1100萬方呎,7年間勁增約1.2倍。

據本報綜合市場統計,2015年至2025年的10年間,本港數據中心總樓面供應量,每年均可觀增長;總樓面由2015年約501萬方呎,狂飆至今年預測的約1100萬方呎,7年間勁增約1.2倍,對比2021年的860方呎,按年增加約28%;另外,未來3年的預測數字按年均錄增幅,直至2025年預測供應量達1370萬方呎,料創新高紀錄。

預測未來三年增至1370萬呎

地政總署回覆本報查詢時指出,過去7年政府透過公開招標批出8幅容許「資訊科技及電訊業」用途的工業用地,涉及總樓面約233.5萬方呎。其中,最新一幅為曾於2020年流標的東涌第57區商業地,上月重新截標,當時吸引5家財團入標,最終由華懋以27.78億奪得,每方呎樓面地價約2200多元。

數據中心市場升至全球第六

另外,該署過去7年共批出22份將工廈的其中部分改作數據中心的臨時豁免書,涉及總樓面約127萬方呎,據相關措施,政府會免收豁免書費用。

政府資訊科技總監辦公室回覆查詢時表示,近年各行各業對數據中心的需求亦日益殷切,據近期相關的市場研究,本港用作數據中心的總樓面從2015年約501萬方呎,增加至2021年的約860萬方呎,年均增長率約為9.5%。

有外資代理行報告顯示,香港由去年排首十名以外,今年大幅躍升至全球第六,亞太地區排名第二。該行代理表示,香港作為全球金融和商業中心,一向有良好的營商環境,加上稅率全球最低,對發展數據中心產業甚為有利。

另一代理指出,近年數據儲存需求急增,雲端數據儲存,在綫工作或上課成新常態,導致全球對數據中心的需求愈來愈大。

合共12幢數據中心 將軍澳大埔成集結地

新冠疫情持續逾兩年,改變市民的日常生活,甚至環球的營商方式,不少企業加速進行數碼轉型,「大數據」可謂是商界新寵,不少財團搶購數據中心用地發展,打造「數據中心王國」。目前本港數據中心供應主要來自將軍澳和大埔工業邨,合共提供約12個數據中心,成全港最大數據中心集結地。

據立法會文件顯示,本港數據中心樓面供應,主要來自將軍澳及大埔工業邨,上述兩個工業邨內共有約12個數據中心,涉及樓面面積合共約383.2萬方呎,包括將軍澳工業邨內的11個高端數據中心,形成香港最大的數據中心集結地。

葵涌有望成新供應庫

此外,葵涌工業區有望打造為新一個數據中心供應庫。據本報統計,近年葵涌工業區掀起重建數據中心熱潮,現時區內至少有8個工廈項目改劃作數據中心發展,涉及可建總樓面約210.5萬方呎,具潛力打造成本港新一個數據中心供應地。最矚目為由萬國數據持有的葵涌藍田街2至16號項目,上月以逾4.6億完成補地價,並獲批一幢樓高二十三層數據中心,可建總樓面逾24.6萬方呎,料最快於今年落成,預計同年中正式啟用及開始營運。

近期有美資基金於該區「插旗」,消息指美資基金Nuveen旗下The Asia Pacific Cities Fund (APCF),本月初斥資約28.8億購入葵涌集運中心全幢,而該物業現作數據中心用途,為今年來市場最大手買賣,以項目總樓面約26.6萬方呎計,每方呎約10800元,創區內新高。

Housing scheme at bayside looks a starter

A green light is expected for a scheme to build 1,233 transitional homes at Lau Fau Shan on Deep Bay near Tin Shui Wai.

New World Development (0017) has lent a site there to the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals to build the homes.

A site area of around 204,300 square feet will be good for housing 2,832 people, and if all goes to plan construction should be completed in 2024.

Meanwhile, New World has also formed a strategic alliance with HKT (6823) to accelerate the digital transformation of NWD's growing business ecosystem in Hong Kong and the mainland.

The two have agreed to leverage the latest cloud-based technologies and create a "workplace for tomorrow" for cross-border communications and collaboration.

On another front, Henderson Land Development (0012) is to put at least 65 more flats on the market with a 1-2 percent price hike for Baker Circle Dover in Hung Hom.

The new round of sales will take place next week.

In Tseung Kwan O, joint developers could also increase the prices on upcoming price lists for Villa Garda I, phase 11B, at Lohas Park.

A new batch of flats is expected to be released this week, and sales arrangements will be announced next week.

The project of 592 flats has been developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173) and China Merchants Land (0978).

In other action, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority bought another HK$8.58 billion from the market to stop the local currency from weakening. The aggregate balance decreases to HK$233.3 billion today.

Hongkongers spoilt for choice in Lohas Park, as developers offer lower prices for new projects to counter interest rate rises

If developers are willing to adjust, they can absorb demand amid rigid secondary market prices, property agent says

First batch at Villa Garda I has been priced 14 per cent below the initial launch price of the Manor Hill project, which was launched in October last year

Homebuyers in Hong Kong are spoilt for choice in Lohas Park, the city’s largest residential enclave, where developers are dropping prices for new projects to drum up sales amid rising interest rates at home and abroad.

Villa Garda I in Lohas Park, which has been developed by Sino Land, K Wah International and China Merchants Land, for instance, has priced a first batch of 128 flats at HK$17,888 (US$2,279) per square foot on average, according to a spokeswoman.

The average price for the project, which sits atop The Lohas, a shopping centre, is 14.5 per cent below the initial launch price of HK$20,921 per square foot on average at Kowloon Development’s Manor Hill project, which was launched nearby in October 2021, before interest rates rose. The price for Villa Garda I is closer to the levels seen during the launch of LP10 in September last year, which was priced at HK$17,463 per square foot.

“After the US raised interest rates earlier this month, there have been signs of a slowdown in property transactions, especially second-hand transactions,” a property agent said.

“The market adjusts prices immediately, but second-hand property owners’ asking prices are relatively rigid. If developers are willing to make adjustments, they can absorb the purchasing power of the market,” the agent added.

Villa Garda I’s launch came as the one-month Hong Kong Interbank Offered Rate (Hibor), to which mortgage plans are frequently linked, rose to 0.71 per cent on Wednesday. It has risen for 12 consecutive trading days and hit its highest level in more than two years, since June 9, 2020.

This is because the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the city’s de facto central bank, has raised rates in lockstep with the US Federal Reserve. Based on the current Hibor and the formula Hibor +1.3 per cent, the actual mortgage interest rate has risen to 2.01 per cent, a new high in more than two years.

A mortgage brokerage services firm said that the Hibor could climb to 1.8 per cent in the third quarter of this year, and local banks might speed up increases in the prime rate – another rate linked to mortgages – as well.

Villa Garda I’s average price is about 5 to 10 per cent below the prices of lived-in homes in the same district, the agent said. It is 9.2 per cent cheaper than lived-in homes in the LP6 development, for instance, which is priced at HK$19,697 per square foot on average, according to a property agency’s data.

The entry price for the project is HK$6.2 million for a 329 sq ft flat. It is, however, higher than the entry prices for other recent developments. But, although Silicon Hill, Grand Jeté, J Loft and Baker Circle had lower starting prices, the sizes of their cheapest flats were smaller than at Villa Garda I.

“The prices in the first price list are quite attractive,” the agent said, adding that he expected the first batch to sell out. Moreover, there was room for a 1 to 2 per cent increase in the next price list.

Hong Kong could see the launch of as many as 12,646 units this year and early 2023, according to an estimate by another property agency, as developers rush to catch up as far as sales are concerned.

Elsewhere, secondary market prices and transaction volumes for 50 major estates in the city dipped in May, according to another local property agency. The agency said it expected volumes to plunge 40 to 50 per cent in June on the interest rate rises.

第五波疫情的影響已逐漸消散,5月份商鋪註冊量繼續向好。根據代理行綜合土地註冊處資料顯示,5月份商鋪註冊宗數錄116宗,第二個月企穩100宗以上水平,按月升約13.7%;註冊金額約21.88億,按月升約21.4%。該行預期,本港經濟自踏入第二季開始慢慢得以復甦,而下屆政府即將上場,相信政府會重啟積極爭取與內地及國際通關,對鋪市帶來強勁支持。

代理:料下半年平穩向好

該行代理表示,雖然近日確診數字再度破千,但市民外出消費的意欲未有減退,第五波疫情對零售氣氛的負面影響亦已逐漸消散,零售市場的信心增加,令近日鋪位交投較之前稍微活躍。展望後市,本港經濟自踏入第二季開始慢慢得以復甦,防疫措施放寬,加上第二期消費券將於8月發放,相信有助為下半年的鋪市帶來強勁支持。

今年大手工廈暫錄10宗成交 按年跌33% 基金買家主導市場

儘管今年以來,大手工廈連錄矚目成交,表現還是不及往年,今年暫錄10宗成交,按年跌33%,買家並沒有往年的百花齊放,今年以外資基金主導,佔其中至少4宗,業界人士表示,隨着物流及數據中心需求殷切,後市更備受看好,只是盤源買少見少。

今年最矚目工廈成交,為葵涌貨櫃碼頭路集運中心全幢,以約29億易手,每呎1.09萬,創區內工廈新高,更成為二手工廈高價指標,買家為美資基金Nuveen旗下Asia Pacific Cities Fund (APCF),該基金首度在港插旗,重手出擊令市場側目。

金額暫逾54億按年減44%

比較去年,外資基金ESR斥18億購入葵涌光輝凍倉,作價18億,呎價5445元;萬國數據亦以18億購入的中央工業大廈,呎價僅5294元,可見今年價格上升。

今年大手工廈整體金額,暫錄逾54億,較去年同期約97.2億,按年減少44%。業內人士表示,物流中心及數據中心需求殷切,工廈前景仍然亮麗,只是隨着去年大量工廈易手,現時市場上盤源已買少見少,而且,工廈價格亦較去年上升,「肯畀價」的外資基金仍然積極,他們投資工廈,蔚然成風,其中有外資基金,還是首次投資本港,美資基金Heitman斥資4.5億,購粉嶺新中國洗衣集團大廈全幢。最新一宗為元朗宏業東街8號晉美工業大廈全幢,作價約2.6億,呎價約6548元,惟未知買家。

物流數據中心需求殷切

除了美資基金表示積極外,今年出手購入工廈,包括加拿大基金公司Brookfield Asset Management Inc,向興勝創建購入沙田工業中心單位及車位,涉資2.11億,新加坡基金SilkRoad Property Partners,亦購入荃灣大成大廈3全層,涉資1.8億。

由於工廈盤源不多,基金積極買酒店,今年以來市場暫錄6宗酒店買賣,基金佔4宗,涉資逾45億,市佔率73%,WEAVE LIVING夥拍安祖高頓一連購入大角嘴九龍珀麗酒店及西環華麗都會酒店,涉資各14.20億及9億。

君怡酒店放盤供競投開價36.6億

尖沙嘴君怡酒店兩年前易手,轟動一時,近日,身為業主的中資集團將酒店放盤,特別的是,物業被放在北京一個資產交易網站,掛牌價格 (開價) 約36.6億,低於購入價。

位處金巴利道28號的君怡酒店,多年前淪銀主盤,2019年10月,由債權人之一、中國信達承接,作價逾43億。該酒店被放上北京金融資產交易所網站放盤,掛牌價格36.6076億,期限由6月24日至7月21日。業界指,該網站專門處理大型資產,買家競投前,需通過程序包括支付訂金,證明有實力,料買家出價高於掛牌價照,才有機會購入。中國信達購君怡酒店時,付相等於樓價8.5%的釐印費 (3.655億),實際成本價高逾46.65億,現時,掛牌價格較當年購入價低,某程度上,顯示兩年疫市以來對酒店帶來衝擊。

太古申強拍鰂魚涌舊樓

近年太古地產積極拓展其鰂魚涌商業王國版圖,該公司繼今年初成功併購仁孚工業大廈全數業權後,最新就併購多年的同區海傍大廈、海灣大廈等8個地段的舊樓,向土地審裁處申請強拍,統一業權發展,市場對整個項目估值逾12.03億。發展商指出,將會重建作商業項目。

太古地產回覆查詢時指出,該公司就一幅鄰接糖廠街的用地申請強制售賣,如在強制售賣中成功投得該幅用地,太古地產將計畫重建作辦公樓及其他商業用途。

據土地審裁處文件顯示,是次申請強拍兩幢舊樓,位於海灣街及糖廠街,涉及8個地段,目前該財團持有約80%至100%業權,市場對整個項目估值12.0344億,其中海灣大廈市場估值6.3781億、海傍大廈估值則約5.656億;目前該兩個項目餘下約17個單位並未成功收購。海灣大廈、海傍大廈位於海灣街9至39號,及糖廠街33至41號,現址為2幢樓高9層的商住舊樓,地下設有商鋪,樓上為住宅,分別於1961及1962年落成入伙。

Hong Kong’s homebuyers snap up Grand Jeté’s new flats in Tuen Mun to get ahead of rising mortgage rates

91 of 138 flats on sale at the Grand Jeté found buyers at 3pm, agents said

The average price of the project was set at HK$15,548 per square foot, 10 per cent cheaper than new projects in the neighbourhood

Buyers piled into Hong Kong’s property market for the second consecutive weekend after the 75-point interest rate hike by the city’s monetary authority, snapping up two-thirds of new apartments on offer.

In Tuen Mun on the western fringe of Hong Kong’s New Territories, 91 of 138 flats on sale at the Grand Jeté found buyers at 9pm, sales agents said. The project by CK Asset Holdings and Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) range in size from 263-square foot studios to three-room flats measuring 722 square feet (67 square metres), with the average price at HK$15,418 per square foot.

Hong Kong’s biggest mortgage lenders kept their prime rates unchanged immediately after the monetary authority’s June 16 move, giving homebuyers the opening to get ahead of higher borrowing costs. Grand Jeté’s cheapest unit started from HK$4.3 million (US$547,830).

“The interest rate hikes are within market expectations and should have little impact on the real estate market,” property agent said. “Property is more secure than other investments. Even if Hong Kong follows the interest rate hike, interest rates are still at a low level, which is still favourable for homebuyers.”

Today’s launch followed the successful sale of SHKP’s Silicon Hill project in Tai Po, where 90 per cent of the 72 final units on offer were sold on Friday. Last weekend, 70 per cent of Silicon Hill and Henderson Land Development’s Baker Circle Dover flats in Hung Hom were sold.

Grand Jeté’s developers set the project’s average launch price 10 per cent cheaper than competing new projects in the Tuen Mun neighbourhood.

The project was oversubscribed by more than eight times, receiving about 1,200 bids for the 138 available units, giving agents the confidence to predict that the current batch would sell out.

Phase one of Grand Jeté comprises 400 flats in two 20-storey towers, scheduled for delivery at the end of March 2024.

As many as 800 newly built homes were sold all over the city in June, and transactions could reach 1,500 by the end of the month with new launches scheduled in Lohas Park, according to the agency.

That would be in line with May’s sales of 1,492 transactions, at a 10-month high, as sentiments improved with Hong Kong’s fifth wave of Covid-19 under control. But with the surge of new launches and rising interest rates, the agent said that it has subdued second-hand transactions.

Developers are offering lower prices for new projects to bolster sales in an environment of rising interest rates and increasing supply of flats. At Lohas Park, Hong Kong’s biggest residential enclave, one project that sits atop a shopping centre is priced 14.5 per cent below the initial launch prices of similar projects in the neighbourhood before the interest hike in mid-June.

The US central bank has flagged 10 increases through the end of 2023. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) increases its base rate in lockstep under its linked exchange rate system to preserve the local dollar’s peg to the US currency.
