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。

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.
