URA's Kwun Tong tweaks make progress


The Urban Renewal Authority's Kwun Tong Town Center Development Areas 4 and 5 will be retendered at a suitable date after an amended proposal to introduce residential elements completes its statutory town planning process.

Secretary for Development Bernadette Linn Hon-ho said the URA proposed to adopt a mixed-use development mode by adding 1,750 residential flats after an unsuccessful tender of the project early last year, which was originally planned as a commercial development.

The proposed amendment retains the "floating planning parameters" mechanism, which would provide the future successful bidder with greater flexibility in allocating floor space for different uses within the stipulated maximum levels.

The amendment proposes to increase the project's total gross floor area by 25 percent to 251,100 square meters.

Hong Kong developers urge government to remove all property cooling measures, make Hongkongers ‘happy’

The government has ‘taken note of the market’s concerns’, but made no promises, Stewart Leung, chairman of the Real Estate Developers Association of Hong Kong as well as Wheelock Properties, says

CK Asset and MTR Corp’s Blue Coast project likely to be launched in March, but ‘actual sales timetable will also depend on the guidelines in the coming budget’: executive

Hong Kong developers have joined a chorus urging the government to remove all the remaining cooling measures to revive the property sector.

Stewart Leung Chi-kin, who is the chairman of the Real Estate Developers Association of Hong Kong as well as Wheelock, said on Wednesday that he had met Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po recently and proposed that all cooling measures be removed.

“The government has taken note of the market’s concerns,” Leung said, adding that Chan had not made any promises.

Speculation is rife that Chan could relax the remaining property market curbs during his budget speech on February 28. Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu, the city’s leader, rolled back some curbs in his policy address last year.

The Hong Kong stock market surged to a seven-week high on Wednesday, with property developers advancing on this speculation. Sun Hung Kai Properties advanced 3.7 per cent to HK$75.15, Henderson Land Development added 2.8 per cent to HK$21.90, while New World Development climbed 4.6 per cent to HK$9.79. The Hang Seng Property Index rose 3 per cent to a one-month high.

The current issue is not the withdrawal of the cooling measures, but the overall economy, Leung said. The fundamentals of the property market “were still good” despite last year’s high interest rate environment and stock market volatility, he added.

“With interest rates expected to be cut this year, various factors including the unemployment rate gradually improving, and the possibility that the government will remove the cooling measures, the property market will see an improvement in the second half of the year,” Leung said.

Wheelock has five projects in Lohas Park in Tseung Kwan O, Kai Tak and Wong Chuk Hang totalling about 2,200 units in the pipeline, which it plans to launch for sale according to market conditions.

Blue Coast, a new residential project being developed as part of phase three of Southside in Wong Chuk Hang by CK Asset Holdings and MTR Corp, is likely to be launched in March, CK Asset said on Wednesday.

“But the actual sales timetable will also depend on the guidelines in the coming budget,” said Justin Chiu Kwok-hung, CK Asset’s executive director. The company “will sell properties at any time and will not hoard inventories”, he added.

The government will take appropriate measures to speed up the economic recovery and if the government removes the cooling measures, most Hong Kong people “will be happy”, Chiu said.

Blue Coast is being developed in two phases and will have 1,200 units. Chiu did not indicate if the project will be sold at low prices or even at a loss, but he said the current cost of the property is HK$28,000 (US$3,578) per square foot, and it might increase if interest rates rise further.

Last year, CK Asset, the property flagship of Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing, surprised the market by launching its cheapest new homes in seven years. The developer sold all 655 units at its The Coast Line II project in Yau Tong. The project was ranked second among the top 20 new major developments sold in 2023, according to data from Dataelements, a data provider that tracks new residential properties in Hong Kong.

新世界逾2億沽尖區一籃子舖 分布河內道等投資者承接

近期發展商積極沽售非核心物業,新世界月前放售尖沙咀河內道等的一籃子舖位,於短短時間內,旋即以逾2億易手,新買家為投資者,回報逾4厘。

新世界大約於12年前,當年地標住宅商場名鑄落成不久,為了令周邊環境更加完善,新世界掃入河內道、麼地道、緬甸臺等街道一籃子舖位,皆為細舖。

連約回報逾4

該批舖位,租客小本經營為主,以食肆佔大比數,其他有銀器店及裁縫等,在2012年後舖市大起飛年代,這些舖位大部分加租幅度輕微,商戶經營穩定。

在經歷舖市大起落後,近期,新世界將該籃子舖位合共8個舖位,推出市場放售。市場消息透露,由於該一籃子舖位,為買家提供享逾4厘回報,最終在淡市下成功出貨,舖位以逾2億易手,惟該批舖位當中,全部錄蝕讓,幅度至少30%至40%。

蝕讓幅度逾30%

其中,緬甸臺2號緬甸大廈地下連1樓,建築面積各約1000及800方呎,2013年購入價為6800萬,目前由日式食肆鮨浂日本承租,月租8萬,沽售價只有約4000萬。

而該批舖位包括麼地道32至48號麗東大廈地下A (48) 號舖,建築面積約1700方呎,目前由食肆以每月14.5萬承租,租期至2026年9月,為該批舖位中租金最高的一個。

灣仔車位摸售升值16%

知情人士指,買家投資者有見在淡市下回報不俗,同時認為一旦經濟改善,舖租勢必長足增長,回報進一步提高。

私募房地產投資基金凱龍瑞集團持有的灣仔海外信託銀行大廈41個車位,早前遭債權人接管,市場消息透露,該批車位部分已沽售,資深投資者蔡伯能購入15個車位,涉資1875萬,平均每個125萬,於短短2周內「摸出」數個,每個約145萬,升值約16%。

中環「蓮香樓」舊址租出 大型酒樓每月28萬進駐

儘管整體經濟表現不如理想,食肆仍積極租舖,中環威靈頓街巨舖及1樓,蓮香樓舊址,在丟空約一年半後,剛以每月約28萬租出,新租客為大型酒樓。

平均呎租33

中環威靈頓街160至164號曾昭灝大廈地下及1樓,建築面積分別各約3580方呎及4833方呎,合共8413方呎,剛以每月約28萬租出,平均呎租33元,租客同樣為大型酒樓,將於短期內開業。

該巨舖舊租客為坐擁百年歷史的粵式茶樓蓮香樓,出品極具水準,其保留傳統經營模式,包括使用點心車售賣點心,皆廣受本地客及遊客追捧,可是,蓮香樓最終不敵疫市,於2022年8月結業。

巨舖丟空一年半

由於舖位面積巨大,加上業主曾計劃短期內重建大廈,未有積極招租,舖位丟空至今逾一年半,最終,業主有見商廈市道差,放棄興建商廈,計劃將物業重建商住樓,由於籌劃需時,於是將巨舖租出。

曾昭灝大廈原本為一幢業權分散的大廈,由於具重建價值,資本策略早於8年前收購,並於2019年購入最後一伙,2021年獲批重建一幢25層高商廈,惟上月,發展商最新向城規會提交新方案,改為申建一幢30層高商住大樓,涉約175伙住宅。

企業廣場一期二座中低層 同步租售

本港重點發展總部經濟,區內商廈林立,交通網絡愈見完善的九龍灣區,更吸引政府部門及國際企業頻頻進駐,帶動租務顯著回暖,近期獲歐洲國際級綫上零售商選址在九龍灣甲廈一號九龍高層近7,000平方呎樓面,反映該區甲廈仍備受青睞。有業主趁勢放售及放租企業廣場一期二座中低層戶。

交吉連裝修 開價2766

有代理表示,有業主放售九龍灣常悅道9號企業廣場一期二座9樓06室,面積約4,068平方呎,意向價約2,766萬元,平均呎價約6,799元,將以交吉並連裝修形式放售,單位同時亦放租,意向呎租約13元,月租叫價約52,000元。

1月至今區錄20宗商廈租務

而據 EPRC 經濟地產庫資料顯示,去年全年九龍灣區商廈成交約24宗,平均呎價約6,959元,成交量與2022年全年計相若,惟平均呎價按年回落約2成。而企業廣場一期去年錄有2宗買賣成交,分別為一期三座低層7室,面積約1,812平方呎,成交價約1,177.8萬元,平均呎價約6,500元,以及一期二座中層6室,面積約1,919平方呎,以約1,172萬元易手,平均呎價約6,107元。

另,據另一間代理行資料顯示,今年1月份九龍灣錄得約20宗商廈租務成交,較去年12月份約17宗上升約18%,反映該區商廈租務逐漸回暖,相信今番租售可獲企業趁早吸納,包括市場最新錄國際交易中心高層單位,面積約2,795平方呎,以月租約7.3萬元租出,平均呎租約26元。

代理表示,企業廣場一期位處九龍灣核心地段,毗鄰MegaBox、德福廣場、其士商業中心等大型購物中心及甲級商業大廈,並緊握交通樞紐,盡佔地利,經觀塘繞道、東區隧道至港島東僅約10分鐘、經大老山隧道、吐露港公路往深圳亦快捷方便,為傳統優質甲廈之選。
