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.
