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.
