CK Asset sells luxury Mid-Levels apartment for record HK$459m

Victor Li’s CK Asset Holdings sold a luxury apartment for a record-breaking HK$459 million (US$59 million), another sign that the upscale housing market is recovering, Bloomberg reports.

The price for the five-bedroom apartment at the 21 Borrett Road project spanning 3,378 square feet (314 square meters) translates into HK$136,000 per square foot, sale materials show. It broke the record made by another luxury development in Mount Nicholson in 2017, making it the most expensive apartment in Asia, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

Situated in the exclusive Mid-Levels neighborhood, the home comes with a private roof and a swimming pool. The transaction also included three car parks for the unidentified buyer.

The purchase reflects recovering sentiment in one of the world’s priciest luxury residential markets. It could also draw more potential buyer attention and boost sales of remaining units in the project, Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Patrick Wong wrote in a note.

Last week, a Wharf Holdings-led consortium won an upscale residential plot for the highest price on record by square feet in Hong Kong.

Luxury home prices fell by 8 percent in 2020, more than the 1 percent decline in the mass market, data from Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. show.

Property deals soar over Lunar New Year holidays

Property sales in Hong Kong soared to eight- and ten-year highs in the primary and secondary markets respectively over the four-day Lunar New Year holiday.

New home sales doubled to an eight-year high with at least 32 transactions, compared to 14 over the same period last year. The market had recorded less than 20 deals from 2014 to 2020 over the four-day holiday.

In secondary sales, 10 major housing estates saw a 10-year high of six transactions compared to three over the same period last year, data of property agency showed.

Among new home deals, Henderson Land Development (0012) sold a total of nine units, including five flats in Yuen Long, three in Quarry Bay, and one in Tai Kok Tsui.

Kerry Properties (0683) sold a luxury house with an area of 2,877 sq ft at HK$86.31 million, or HK$30,000 per sq ft, making it the biggest deal over the holidays.

And Sino Land (0083) sold a one-room special unit at Silversands in Ma On Shan, measuring 267 sq ft, with a 103-sq-ft terrace for HK$6.41 million or HK$24,000 per sq ft.

The developer has sold 40 homes at the project, cashing out more than HK$300 million.

Property agent expects the market to rebound after the Lunar New Year holidays as people rush to buy homes.

Many Hongkongers who were not able to travel abroad because of the pandemic and lockdown restrictions took advantage of the holidays to hunt for homes, according to a property broker. Some worried that prices would rebound once the pandemic eased, the broker added.

The market recorded 78,352 transactions in the recently ended Year of the Rat, up by around 8.48 percent year-on-year.

Another agent expects overall transactions to grow by 10 percent to the level of 86,300 deals by the end of the Year of the Ox.

The agent also expects prices to rise by 10 percent this year as capital keeps flowing into the market, on the back of continuing quantitative easing and low interest rates.

In other news, Chinachem is expected to launch sales of 68 units at Anderson Road in Kwun Tong this Saturday after previously releasing the price list with a discounted average price per sq ft of HK$20,363.

灣仔巨鋪每呎57元租出逆市加租16%金融機構進駐

儘管整體市場上鋪租下跌,惟個別行業包括護老院及金融機構,仍然具承租能力,灣仔莊士敦道錄逆市加租個案,一個面積逾萬方呎的複式巨鋪,以每月58萬租出,平均呎租57元,加幅16%,租客為金融機構。

上址為灣仔莊士敦道183至187號、位處菲林明道1至3號,樓高3層,為一個總面積逾萬方呎的巨鋪,消息人士透露,上址剛由金融機構承租,月租58萬,舊租客體育用品連鎖店進駐,月租50萬,新租較舊租加16%。該物業地庫建築面積約3291方呎,地下約2658方呎,1樓約4164方呎,合共10113方呎,最新平均呎租57元。

每月58萬獲承租

據了解,該鋪位早年落成時,曾由銀行一租數十年,直至2015年由體育用品連鎖店搶租,月租50萬,去年遷出後,丟空超過半年,業主叫租每月68萬,最終減價10萬或14%租出。

丟空逾半年租出

代理表示,雖然目前市面上仍然吉鋪處處,惟在疫市下,正是進駐優質鋪位的時機,上述鋪位位處單邊,面積巨大,甚為罕有,最新租金合理。

過去一年,疫市經歷巨大變化,由於零售業及飲食業面對前所未有的寒冬,紛紛結業,核心區吉鋪處處,部分鋪位錄得金融機構,包括銀行則趁勢進駐核心區鋪位,其中亞皆老街32至34號全幢,樓高三層,總面積6000方呎,業主為大鴻輝,並由G2000承租逾十年,月租180萬。去年遷出後,由中信嘉華銀行承租,月租約60萬,較舊租金大減66%,平均呎租僅100元水平。

亞皆老街全幢60萬租大減66%

業界紛對銀行進駐核心區表關注,有資深代理指出,過去多年來,核心區聚集零售、珠寶金行等行業,業主向來不太願意將鋪位租予銀行,皆因銀行夜晚不營業,烏燈黑火,現時淡市下,有見珠寶行及零售生意不濟,核心區鋪主向民生行業如銀行招手,雖然銀行付租能力比不上零售,但不會執笠及拖租,屬穩陣租客。
