Property market on the upswing as Covid wanes


Hong Kong's property market has regained its momentum with both primary and secondary markets performing well over the past few days amid the waning fifth Covid wave in the city.

All 388 homes at The Grand Mayfair I in Yuen Long on offer in the first round of sales sold out last Friday, and the remaining 327 units will be put on the market tomorrow, said the developers.

These homes were over 12 times oversubscribed after attracting more than 4,300 checks, they said.

On offer are 103 one-bedroom flats, 173 with two bedrooms, and 51 with three bedrooms, which are priced from HK$6.45 million to HK$14.91 million after discounts.

The 715-flat project is phase 1A of a 2,200-flat mega development that is being jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173) and China Overseas Land and Investment (0688).

The prices of phase 1B, which provides 805 flats, will be announced soon after the Wednesday sales, the developers said.

In Tai Kok Tsui, The Quinn Square Mile recorded at least 51 transactions as of Sunday, said the developer Henderson Land Development (0012), which cashed in nearly HK$330 million from the sales.

In Kai Tak, Henderson's project The Henley II kicks off sales of 98 homes today, including 92 on price lists and six by tenders.

The builder said it has collected over 350 checks for the 92 units on the lists, meaning the flats were more than 2.7 times oversubscribed.

Meanwhile, 10 defaulted flats at Sea to Sky, or phase eight of Lohas Park in Tseung Kwan O will be put up for sale again this Friday, said the developers CK Asset (1113) and MTR Corporation (0066).

The completed units, ranging from 468 square feet to 1,054 sq ft, are available for viewing, they said.

In the secondary market, a total of 21 deals were recorded in the 10 major housing estates over the weekend, the same as last week, and above the 20-mark for the seventh week in a row, according to property agency.

Property agent said that the secondary transactions did not decline despite the sales of new projects, reflecting that buyers still have strong interests in the property market.

The agent expects that there will be around 1,500 first-hand deals this month and the overall real estate prices will bounce back as well.

‘The worst is over’ for Hong Kong’s shops segment, with rents and prices to recover on better consumer sentiment

Hong Kong’s shop market can expect a V-shaped rebound in transaction volume and prices in the second half, says Bridgeway CEO Lee

Prime street shop rents have continued to fall since the social unrest in mid-2019, taking the cumulative decline in value to 75 per cent from 2013

Hong Kong’s shop market is likely to see a V-shaped rebound this year as the easing of social distancing measures following the fifth wave of coronavirus outbreak in the city puts consumer spending back on track.

Shop rents could increase by up to 10 per cent in residential areas and by as much as 20 per cent in core areas, said Edwin Lee, founder and CEO of Bridgeway Prime Shop Fund Management.

“The worst for the shop market is over,” said Lee. “I expect that as the pandemic subsides, and with [subsequent] border reopening at home, there will be a V-shaped rebound in the sales volume and transaction prices [of shops] in the second half of the year.”

The prices of shops will increase by 5 to 10 per cent in residential areas and by 10 to 15 per cent in prime areas, he forecasts.

Prime street shop rents weakened 5 per cent in the first quarter this year, adding to a three-year slump. They tumbled by one-third in 2019 in the wake of the social unrest, followed by another 23.4 per cent in 2020 and 4.3 per cent in 2021 amid the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a property agency.

Overall, they have crashed by around 75 per cent since the first quarter of 2013, when the Individual Visit Scheme drew the most number of mainland travellers to the city.

Lee’s optimism is shared by other market insiders.

“Rents in traditional tourist areas will definitely increase by 10 to 20 per cent, as most of the shops in prime areas have seen rents fall by as much as 70 per cent from their highs,” a surveyor said.

On the other hand, the surveyor said that the rent increases in residential neighbourhoods will be sluggish, as unlike core areas where rents slumped during the pandemic, they moved higher in the same time span.

Meanwhile, the city recorded 288 shop transactions in the first three months this year, the lowest since 248 deals in the second quarter of 2020, according to Land Registry data. The value fell to HK$7.58 billion (US$966 million), the least since the first quarter of 2021.

“Even if there is a sixth wave, [prices] will not drop greatly [as] buyers feel they can bet on it, considering the [low] prices now,” a property agent said, adding that selling prices will be largely flat moving forward.

Russell Street, once the world’s most expensive retail strip, has recently seen a few short-term tenancies of face-mask shops. These retailers sometimes land a bargain, paying as little as HK$80,000 per month, which is about 15 to 25 per cent of peak rents seen in 2013.

With consumers unleashing “revenge spending” in the market, Bridgeway last month found a tenant for its street-level shop in Sheung Wan, who paid significantly higher than the previous client, Lee said.

The company signed a five-year lease for the 2,300-sq ft shop, with a fixed monthly rent of HK$130,000 for the first two years versus HK$100,000 previously, he added. The rate will increase to HK$143,000 per month thereafter.

信和 Landmark South 招租 呎租逾30

信和集團今年兩寫字樓項目落成,集團現先推出黃竹坑 Landmark South 甲廈招租,呎租約30餘元;而下半年將推出元朗One North項目,兩項目合共提供約80萬呎樓面。集團認為今年市場整體商廈供應多,具特色的商廈仍有需求,而集團整體商廈出租率約9成。

信和集團及帝國合作發展的黃竹坑業勤街39號全新甲廈項目 Landmark South,預計今年第2季落成,樓高31層,總樓面達256,957平方呎,包括16層甲廈、3層零售空間及藝術展覽廳,另提供佔地9,000平方呎空中花園。藝術發展局將於此開設一個約5,000平方呎的多用途藝術展覽,另項目最頂兩層29及30樓,享特高樓底,項目可望今年8月入伙。

黃竹坑甲廈 已錄成交

信和集團資產管理董事蔡碧林表示,Landmark South 現進行招租,單位面積約1,497至1.4萬平方呎,呎租約30餘元。她指因疫情關係,招租工作及睇樓活動最近才開始,暫時反應不俗,已獲室內設計、私募基金等機構視察,並已錄得數宗細單位成交。項目賣點上,她表示項目鄰近港鐵站,而黃竹坑本身與中環僅數站之距,租金差幅大,亦鄰近南區,地點甚理想。

集團對上一次新寫字樓項目落成已為2008年,而今年更有兩幢甲廈推出,位於元朗One North,為集團在2015年以16.9億元投得,鄰近港鐵朗屏站,涉及2座樓高14層商廈,寫字樓面積約44.5萬平方呎,另商場零售面積約11.3萬平方呎,合共總樓面面積55.8萬平方呎。

元朗One North 料第三季招租

蔡碧林指,該項目位處元朗,有北部都會區概念,可招攬創科等商戶,亦合半零售商戶,預計第三季招租。

信和今年兩項目共有80萬平方呎樓面推出,而今明兩年整體商廈供應量高,蔡碧林認為,無疑市場供應多,惟具特色商廈仍有一定需求,而集團兩項目分布南區及北區,具有獨特性。

市況方面,疫情下不少機構採在家工作策略,租客對商廈需求或有變,她則認為,很多生意仍需面對面傾談,在家工作執行上亦有其他困難,故實體辦公室重要性不減。她指,集團旗下寫字樓整體出租率約9成,與第5波疫情前相若,租客在疫情下無意搬遷,故出租率仍穩定,租金方面,現時租金水平與高峰期比較,仍低約1成以上。

租務市場將轉好 租金企穩

整體商廈租金穩定, 有代理行預計,隨着租務需求上升,租務市場將轉好,租金亦企穩。

據本港一間外資代理行每月商廈租金走勢數據,中環超甲廈呎租約134.6元,按月微升0.2%,而整體中環呎租約114元,按月微跌0.2%,按年則升約0.8%,反映租金相對穩定。另外,其他商業區亦相對平穩,跌幅較大為鰂魚涌,按月跌約2.7%,現呎租約51元。

中環有數幢甲級寫字樓在3月底錄得雙位數空置率,但中環整體空置率維持在7.2%水平,表現較非核心商業區好,邊綫區如金鐘及灣仔區,空置率分別達8.4%及11.2%,

IWG租全幢商廈 港島最大手

租務上,該行指,3月港島租務成交,主要為細單位,面積6,000平方呎以上單位,獲金融及律師行等租用;較大手為金融機構租用中環怡和大廈3.1萬平方呎樓面,另律師樓租用中環花園道3號

港島區最大手租務,為IWG集團租用灣仔皇后大道東8號全幢 (8QRE),開設Spaces辦公中心,而8QRE Spaces預計於2022年7月開幕。該集團指,該中心將提供超過900個辦公位置及70間私人辦公室,同時預留5層空間作企業專屬套間。除了服務式辦公室,其中兩層更將改造為「商務俱樂部」。業內人士預計,是次成交呎租料約45元,該廈總樓面約8萬平方呎,原由忠利保險租用。據悉,2019年共享空間品牌WeWork亦曾預租該廈全幢,惟最終取消,如今由IWG接手。

另外,中環中心連錄成交,物業中低層全層,面積約2.5萬平方呎,成交呎租僅約40元。新租客為一家英資軟件公司,原租用同廈極高層單位,呎租約75至80元,如今於同廈進行搬遷,主因可節省一半租金。另外,物業高層單位約2,856平方呎,以每呎約70元租出,月租約20萬元,上址舊租金每呎約105元,租金跌約33%。

九龍寫字樓租金 末季將回升

九龍區方面,大手租務為觀塘綠景NEO大廈中層兩層樓面,合共近5萬平方呎,成交呎租約30元。新租客為手機配件連鎖店CASETiFY,該品牌原租用同區工廈天星中心,涉及約1萬平方呎,如今大幅擴充至約5萬平方呎,屬近期罕有擴充個案。

該行指,隨着員工重返辦公室工作,更多租戶重新考慮搬遷等計劃,令3月份的寫字樓租賃活動水平反彈。該行指,由於疫情緩和,預計未來數月租務活動增加,而九龍區方面,該行料寫字樓租金將在未來幾個季度保持觸底反彈的趨勢,並在今年最後一季略有回升,故租金年底將有1至3%的整體增長。

鰂魚涌海裕街地皮放售 可建40萬呎

「去中環化」下,不少企業搬至港島東,區內商廈項目受重視,現太平協和旗下鰂魚涌海裕街臨海地皮,由接管人委託測量師行進行放售,可重建成40萬平方呎商業樓面。

據市場人士估計,地皮市值約40億元,每呎樓面地價約1萬元,而日後轉作商廈用途需補地價。

Price-sensitive buyers snap up 51 units at The Quinn Square Mile in Tai Kok Tsui, netting HK$330 million for Henderson

Young buyers snap up 51 units out of 138 on offer at The Quinn Square Mile, Henderson Land says

Sunday’s launch follows an eventful week of new launches as pent up demand resurfaces after Covid restrictions

Henderson Land Development sold 51 units out of 138 on offer at the residential project The Quinn Square Mile in Tai Kok Tsui on Sunday, according to the developer, as price-sensitive buyers snapped up small-sized flats amid a pickup in new project launches from developers over the past week.

Most of the units sold by 6pm were one-bedroom flats and studios, according to property agents, with the majority of buyers being end users younger than 30 years old. Agents expected about 60 per cent of all available units to be sold by the end of the day, the second of the three-day Labour Day weekend.

“Many buyers remain optimistic about the property market outlook, as there is a strong pent up demand from buyers standing on the sidelines in the first quarter and fourth quarter of last year,” property agent said.

The sale of the Henderson Land project followed an eventful week of launches from developers, which saw new orders from buyers every day of the week. This is in sharp contrast to the preceding three-month lull in sales as social distancing measures linked to the city’s fifth wave of Covid-19 caused developers to delay new project launches.

Ahead of the sale, The Quinn Square Mile received 900 registrations from interested buyers, meaning about 7 interested buyers were going after each of the 138 units on offer, according to local media.

The batch released today, which accounts for about a fifth of the total 614 units in the project, also featured two-bedroom flats, with the biggest flat measuring up to 382 sq ft. The first-batch units were earmarked for sale at an average launch price of HK$23,928 per square foot after discounts offered by the developer.

That is about 1 per cent lower than units at Soyo, another tiny flat development in Mong Kok from Chun Wo Development Holdings. The launch price for those units last December was an average of HK$24,179 per square foot.

The Quinn Square Mile sales have so far netted HK$330 million for Henderson Land, according to Mark Hahn, the general manager of sales.

The resurgence in interest has also come ahead of more rate hikes in store for the rest of this year, which could increase buyers’ mortgage repayments down the line.

The US Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise the Fed funds rate by half a percentage point this month, as US inflation rose at the fastest pace in 40 years. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority would likely mirror the hike in its base lending rate due to Hong Kong’s currency peg to the US dollar, adding upwards pressure to mortgage payments linked to interbank rates.

Some potential buyers may be prompted to buy ahead of further rate hikes, which banks typically respond to with higher income requirements for mortgage applicants, agents said. That might have fuelled sales at The Grand Mayfair I in Yuen Long, which was developed by Sino Land, K Wah International and China Overseas Land and Investment. All 388 flats on offer sold out on Friday.

Sales of new homes are likely to hit 1,200 units in April, according to another property agent. That would make it the busiest month since December, when 1,493 units were sold, according to Land Registry data. Sales could rise further to a 10-month high of 2,000 in May, the agent predicted.

市建盛德街項目已收逾九成單位

為協助公務員建屋合作社 (下稱合作社) 解決重建難的問題,市區重建局 (下稱市建局) 於2020年5月以試點形式啟動土瓜灣區兩個合作社項目重建計劃,其中盛德街/馬頭涌道重建項目 (下稱盛德街項目) 去年8月開始收購,至今年4月底已有逾九成業主接納收購。市建局亦透露,已就西灣河一帶合作社向業主進行意見調查,絕大部分業主期望其樓宇可作重建。

韋志成:支援散社令收購順利

前述兩個合作社項目,其中盛德街項目涉及約155個業權,預計日後可重建約640個私人住宅單位。市建局行政總監韋志成於網誌中指出,該項目推展進度較順利,地盤內9個合作社中,有8個在市建局開展項目前已經解散;餘下1個涉及12伙的合作社,在市建局顧問團隊支援下,只需約一年完成整個解散合作社 (散社) 和取回業權的程序,較以往社員自行處理散社所需的時間,縮短約18個月。

該項目僅有約9個業權因為業主離世後之繼承手續等較複雜的問題,尚未成功收購;其餘逾140個業權,市建局早前已向業主發放現金補償和特惠津貼。韋志成說,部分業主已陸續在九龍城、沙田、元朗等地區購買單位,另有43名業主選擇市建局提供的重置單位認購方案,有9人於上周一 (4月25日) 成功購入市建局位於九龍東啟德煥然壹居的樓換樓單位,部分則擬購買日後原址興建的新盤內的樓換樓單位,43人中有約一半則擬選購香港房屋協會正於啟德興建的專用安置屋邨內所提供的資助出售房屋。

至於規模較大的土瓜灣靠背壟道項目,現存有約460個單位,市建局預計日後可提供約950個公營房屋單位和逾1500個私人住宅單位。韋志成稱,該項目約四成單位尚未解散相關合作社,令市建局是否在此情況下提交予政府展開收地程序存在一定未知數和難度,市建局將繼續以最大努力協助靠背壟道項目社員散社。

西灣河多數舊樓業主盼重建

此外,韋志成透露,市建局去年底向西灣河一帶的業主進行首個「市區更新需求先導調查」(更新需求調查),了解業主是否希望其樓宇重建或進行復修等,當中涵蓋該區一些合作社項目。初步資料顯示,有近八成已散社和逾九成未散社的合作社社員希望其樓宇可重建。

韋志成表示,由土瓜灣兩個試點項目可見,散社是推展合作社重建項目的關鍵,該局會總結試點項目的經驗,並深入研究西灣河更新需求調查有關合作社樓宇社員意見所得的啟示,以規劃並向政府建議日後處理其他合作社項目的方向。

New York law firm White & Case opens 3 floors at Hongkong Land’s York House as tenants cherry pick from Central’s office market slump


White & Case opened a 25,000-square foot (2,300 square metres) office across three floors late last month in York House, part of Hongkong Land’s Landmark complex

The lease marked the firm’s return as a Hongkong Land tenant, after spending 15 years down Queens Road Central at Central Development Limited ’s Central Tower

Office tenants are tiptoeing back to Hong Kong’s Central district, picking up choice commercial real estate space in what used to be the world’s costliest urban centre at more affordable prices amid a resurgent Covid-19 pandemic.

White & Case, a New York-headquartered law firm with 45 offices across 31 markets, opened a 25,000-square foot (2,300 square metres) office across three floors late last month in York House, leased for an undisclosed price at Hongkong Land’s Landmark commercial complex in Central.

The lease marked the law firm’s return as a Hongkong Land tenant, after spending 15 years further down Queen’s Road Central at Central Development Limited’s Central Tower. Before moving to Central Tower in 2007, White & Case occupied 17,000 sq ft of space at Gloucester Tower, one of the three office buildings in the Landmark complex.

“We are pleased to return to the Hongkong Land Central portfolio as we make room for our expanding team and future growth, [where] we look forward to continuing our focus on excellence and serving our clients as we deepen our expertise and presence in the market,” said Eugene Man, the executive partner at White & Case’s Hong Kong office. “York House will provide our employees and clients with unparalleled access to corporate and market leaders in one of the world’s leading international financial hubs.”

Office rent has plunged by 27 per cent from its peak in late 2021 in Hong Kong, according to Morgan Stanley’s estimate. Prices are likely to remain soft as 4.6 million sq ft of new grade A office supply are likely to be added to Hong Kong this year, the second-highest annual addition since 6.8 million sq ft were added in 1998.

Central’s office rental charges, still among the highest in the world, dipped by 0.1 per cent in March from February, according to a property agency. Overall office rents across the city fared worse, with a 0.2 per cent drop in the same month.

Still, the return by White & Case as a Landmark tenant was “not a sweetheart deal,” said Hongkong Land’s director Neil Anderson.

“White & Case chose to return to the Hongkong Land Central portfolio to make room for their expanding team and future growth and support their talent retention efforts,” he said. “York House is not a cheaper location. White & Case wanted to improve their workplace environment and saw the move as a flight to quality.”

The vacancy rate in Central dipped to 7.3 per cent in March, compared with 8 per cent in December 2021, according to data provided by the agency. City authorities have begun to gradually relax some of the social-distancing rules that were enforced in January to keep the highly transmissible Omicron variant of Covid-19 in check.

The gradual improvement in the take-up rate of empty offices is sustainable in the coming months as social distancing rules are further relaxed, and more employees return to work from their offices, a property agent said.

“Market momentum and activities are likely to improve in the second half as the government gradually relaxes the social-distancing rules from April 21 onwards,” the agent said. “Transactions will become more active in the second half, given the recovery cycle for the sector has been largely delayed by the Omicron strain of the coronavirus.”

Institutional investors are also likely to be more aggressive as they seek opportunities in Hong Kong, property agent said.

“In fact, 68 per cent of the first-quarter investment transaction [value] in Hong Kong were by institutional investors,” the agent said. “Most of the key investors [who] have their teams and presence in Hong Kong, [they] may have delayed their site inspection or decision-making process, but with the Omicron wave gradually stabilising, the investment market will become active again.”

Chicago-based Heitman joins global funds to tap Hong Kong’s growing demand for cold-storage facilities

Heitman plans to convert a 100,000 sq ft industrial building in Fanling into a cold-storage facility within the next 12 months

Global investment funds have spent HK$2.3 billion to acquire three cold-storage assets in Hong Kong over the past year

Global real estate funds are tapping growing demand for cold-storage facilities in Hong Kong as the tough social distancing rules and work from home arrangements amid the pandemic accelerates online sales of groceries.

Chicago-headquartered Heitman, with over US$50 billion in assets under management, is the latest entrant into the sector, acquiring a 100,000 sq ft industrial building in Fanling for an undisclosed price.

The fund will commence a fit-out of the property to repurpose the asset into a cold-storage facility.

“We expect demand for specialised en-bloc facilities to continue to grow on the back of close to full occupancy of cold-storage space currently across Hong Kong,” said Brad Fu, head of Asia-Pacific acquisitions at Heitman, which has been investing in Hong Kong’s traditional industrial and office properties since it set up an office here in 2012.

The facility is 100 per cent pre-let to end users even before the completion of the renovation work, which is likely to take around 12 months, Fu said. He added that the tenants include high-end fresh and frozen food operators, but declined to name them.

“Demand growth for cold-storage space has remained resilient as the online sale of groceries in the city has multiplied in recent years, while consumption of fresh and frozen foods has also continued to increase,” said Fu.

While imports of frozen food in terms of weight into Hong Kong grew at 11 per cent from 2016 to 2020 annually, cold-storage space by gross floor area saw a mere 4 per cent growth over the same period, according to the latest figures from a property agency.

Cold storage also enjoys a rental premium of about 20 per cent to 25 per cent above traditional warehouses, which rent for between HK$10 and HK$16 per square foot per month.

In recent years, cold storage has emerged as a sought-after subsector in Hong Kong’s industrial market, with investment funds typically showing huge interest, according to a report by the agency. International funds have bought three cold-storage assets since last year for a total of HK$2.3 billion.

New York-headquartered Angelo Gordon paid HK$1.43 billion for the 291,697 sq ft Kai Bo Group Centre in March last year.

The deal came one month after Australian property group Goodman bought the 103,746 sq ft Seapower Industrial Centre for HK$520 million, and Singapore-headquartered SilkRoad Property Partners paid HK$321 million for Smile Centre, a 97,751 sq ft cold-storage building.

Kwai Chung stands out as one of the most promising sub-markets, accounting for 44 per cent of the licensed cold-storage space that is well connected via the highway network, the agency’s report said.

Total cold-storage investment in Asia-Pacific reached US$2 billion in 2020, growing at an average annual rate of 21 per cent since 2011.

Sales kick off for The Henley II in Kai Tak

At least 12 of the 98 units on offer at The Henley II in Kai Tak were said to be sold after sales kicked off yesterday.

The developer Henderson Land Development (0012) said it has received 440 cheques for the 92 flats on the price lists, making the batch four times oversubscribed, and had sold four out of the six flats via tender.

The four homes sold by tender had areas of 888 square feet each and buyers forked out between HK$30.2 million and HK$34.5 million - or between HK$34,000 per sq ft and HK$38,851 per sq ft - for the flats.

A property agent said that property prices in Kai Tak will benefit from the opening of the East Rail Line cross-harbor extension, though the effect on The Henley II sales may be limited.

In Yuen Long, The Grand Mayfair I was nearly 22 times oversubscribed with 7,393 checks for the 327 flats on sale today.

On offer are 103 one-bedroom flats, 173 with two bedrooms, and 51 with three bedrooms, which are priced from HK$6.45 million to HK$14.91 million after discounts.

The 715-flat project is being jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173), and China Overseas Land and Investment (0688).

Also in the same area, CK Asset (1113) has unveiled a new batch of 23 duplex flats at #Lyos, with prices starting from HK$13.82 million after discounts, or from HK$17,668 per sq ft.

The sales will kick off on Saturday and another eight special units will be sold by tender, said the developer.

All the 290 standard flats on price lists were sold last year and together with the duplex flats sold earlier, CK Asset has cashed in HK$1.85 billion from the project.

As developers speed up the pace of launching new projects, the agent expects the total number of first-hand transactions to be above 2,500 this month, which could be an 18-month high.

The market watcher said that the upcoming interest rate hikes may only have a temporary psychological impact on buyers and that buying properties is still a tool to offset currency depreciation amid inflation pressure.

Meanwhile, real estate consultancy said the high level of expected supply in the primary market will likely prompt developers to take on competitive pricing strategies, which in turn will exert pressure on the secondary market. Combined with the factor of increasing interest rates, housing prices will be under pressure this year, it added.

啟德多焦點商業項目 勢成第二CBD

近年啟德區成為新盤供應重鎮,同時有大量商用項目發展,包括寫字樓、商場及酒店等。隨着各項基建及社區設施相繼落成,以及交通基建網絡趨完善,啟德有望成為香港第二個核心商業區。

AIRSIDE 料今年末季開幕

啟德全新地標 AIRSIDE 為一個190萬平方呎混合商業用地,由南豐集團於2017年投得,以逾246億元創下當時土地投標紀錄,項目樓高47層,當中逾30層為甲級寫字樓,面積合共120萬平方呎,坐擁無敵維港海景,更是首個連接啟德港鐵站和地下購物街的大型商場,購物空間達70萬平方呎。

項目總投資金額預計高達320億元,於今年第4季正式開幕。

另外,兩大日式百貨公司,SOGO 啟德旗艦店及 AEON 啟德店,都會先後進駐啟德區。當中 SOGO 崇光百貨將以雙子塔形式呈現,建築工程亦已進入直路,明年將正式落成開幕,區內住客的生活和消閒選擇一應俱全,當區樓價有望再升值。而 AEON 則將於啟德體育園內開設 AEON STYLE 新店,合約期9年,同樣預計於明年開業。

值得留意的是,位於車站廣場下的地下購物街將會連接九龍城、新蒲崗、啟德站及宋皇臺站,預計全長達1,500米,比日本心齋橋地下街長1倍,將成為東九龍又一個新地標。

而交通方面,東鐵綫過海段提早於本月15日通車,由啟德站到達金鐘只需約12分鐘;而連接西九龍及將軍澳的六號幹綫,預計於2026年通車,進一步提升啟德區交通網絡。

流標重推 華懋奪東涌57區商業地

隨政府積極發展東涌東新填海區,填海區將會新增多達逾940萬平方呎商業樓面供應,當中該帶首幅用地東涌第57區商業地已經重推,並由華懋投得,計劃發展數據中心及辦公室等,涉及多達126萬平方呎商業樓面。

早於2020年首度推出,並曾「流標」的東涌第57區商業地屬於新填海區首幅推出的私人發展用地,位於東涌市地段第45號、迎東邨東面。地皮早在2020年10月招標時,只截收3份標書,但最終因投標金額未達政府底價而「流標」。不過發展局早前已將地皮再納入賣地表,並已於上季推出。值得留意的是,政府重推地皮前已調整招標條款,包括加入容許發展數據中心、調整零售樓面等。

而是次重推後,地皮共接獲5份標書,較首推時多出2份,並最終由華懋以約27.78億元奪得地皮,即每平方呎樓面地價約2,202元,成交價貼近市場估值下限。華懋表示,計劃在該地皮興建商場、辦公室及數據中心。地皮佔地約13.3萬平方呎,規劃為「商業 (1)」用途地帶,以地積比率約9.5倍發展,預計提供逾126萬平方呎商業樓面。

修訂招標條款 增數據中心用途

事實上,地皮於2020年首次招標時,當時賣地章程規定,項目逾9成樓面或114.6萬平方呎須作辦公室用途,餘下約11.5萬平方呎或1成則作商場用途。鑑於疫情打擊商業氣氛,所以其辦公室樓面比例過高被市場視為「流標」的主因之一。而是次修訂賣地條款後,除了可迎合近年數據中心龐大的市場需求,亦讓發展商設計時有更大彈性。

東涌站第1期 6成為辦公室樓面

東涌是一個以住宅發展為主的新市鎮,而隨東涌東新填海區發展,填海土地將供應多達6.2萬伙公私營房屋,其中港鐵旗下東涌東站第1期項目,比鄰迎東邨,將會以地積比率8.8倍作綜合發展用途,提供住宅、辦公室及零售設施、公共交通交滙處等,料可提供約1,500伙,而該用地已經納入本財年賣地表。

按政府規劃,上述填海區除了提供住宅,還會興建大量商業設施,涉及多達944萬平方呎,計劃建構地區商業中心,當中將以辦公室樓面主導,佔總樓面近6成,涉538.2萬平方呎樓面。同時,新填海區將會供應多達352萬平方呎的零售樓面,及約53.8萬平方呎作為酒店用途。

入標價差距大 發展潛力現分歧

雖然政府重推東涌第57區商業地前已調整招標條款,增加發展彈性,避免再度流標,但參考地政總署上周公布的發展商入標價,可見發展商對該地皮的發展前景及潛力存有極大分歧。

地皮3月底共截收5份標書,除中標的華懋外,還有嘉華 (00173) 、建灝,長實 (01113) 及信置 (00083) 入標。據資料顯示,撇除中標價27.78億元,其餘4份標書所出的標價介乎6,300萬至18億元,即每平方呎樓面地價約50至1,427元,可見中標價與次標價18億元已經大幅相差約54%,而最低標價更只錄6,300萬元,呎價僅約50元,屬於極低水平,意味中標價較最低標價足足高出27.15億元或逾43倍。

Island South Grade-A project launched


Sino Group and Empire Group have commenced leasing their latest Grade-A commercial project in Wong Chuk Hang Landmark South, fetching an average monthly rent of about HK$30 per square foot.

Boasting a total area of 256,957 square feet, the 30-storey office-cum-retail complex will be officially opened in the third quarter. Bella Chhoa Peck-lim, director of asset management of Sino Group, revealed that some design and architecture firms, as well as galleries have shown keen interest in the project.

Despite the trend of hybrid working mode, Albert Yiu Chi-wai, executive director of Empire Group, expects the rent in the area to be stable unlike Central, which was once hard hit by the pandemic, due to its relatively low rent and the completion of more residential and commercial projects as well as the Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel Hong Kong that will draw more people to the district.   

The site was acquired for HK$2.53 billion, or HK$8,872 psf, based on a gross floor area of 284,945 square feet, and the developers are required to accommodate the Hong Kong Arts Development Council in the premises as a part of the government’s Invigorating Island South initiative.

The Grand Mayfair I nearly sold out

The Grand Mayfair I in Yuen Long is nearly sold out within a week of its launch.

At least 322 of the 327 flats available in the second round of sales launched yesterday were purchased, with developers raking in over HK$3 billion in just one day.

The flats were nearly 22 times oversubscribed before the sales, with prices ranging from HK$6.45 million to HK$14.91 million after discounts.

Together with the sales last Friday, 710 of the 715 homes in the project have been sold over the past six days, with the developers cashing in more than HK$6.6 billion in contracted sales.

The project is phase 1A of a 2,200-flat mega development that is being jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173), and China Overseas Land and Investment (0688).

Prices of phase 1B, The Grand Mayfair II with 805 flats, will be announced soon.

In Tai Kok Tsui, 18 more homes at The Quinn Square Mile will be put on the market today, and another five on Saturday, said the Henderson Land Development (0012).

Several special units will also be tendered soon, and it has recorded a contracted sales of HK$368 million from the project after selling 57 flats, Henderson said.

In Ngau Tau Kok, sales of 40 units at The Aperture will be relaunched on Sunday, the developer Hang Lung Properties (0101) said.

The Grand Mayfair I project in Yuen Long enjoys strong sales as discounts attract first-time buyers

The project, developed by Sino Land, K Wah International and China Overseas Land and Investment, found buyers for 322 of the 327 flats on offer on Wednesday

Analysts predict a surge in supply, as more cut-price projects are launched in the coming months, will suppress house prices

Almost all available units at The Grand Mayfair I in Yuen Long were sold on Wednesday as buyers continue to snap up projects launched after a three-month lull caused by the fifth wave of Covid-19.

The project, developed by Sino Land, K Wah International and China Overseas Land and Investment, found buyers for 322 of the 327 flats on offer, a company spokeswoman said. It was the second round of sales after the project at Kam Sheung Road Station sold all 388 units on offer last Friday.

“The pandemic has subsided significantly, and social distancing measures have been gradually relaxed, which is good for the property market,” a property agent said. “Developers are taking advantage of the situation to push forward developments at full speed.”

Sales are likely to have been boosted by the relatively cheap prices, as developers seek to make up for lost time by shifting as many units as possible.

Prices started at HK$6.45 million (US$821,784) for a 339 square-foot flat.

The average price this time worked out at HK$18,777 per square foot, after a discount of 16 per cent. That was about 1 per cent higher than the first round, but still 12 per cent lower than the prevailing secondary market price of HK$21,400 per sq ft seen at Ocean Pride in Tsuen Wan West, according to data from a property agency.

the agent said that the relatively low prices helped boost sales as “the unit prices are suitable for first-time buyers.”

The project fetched 7,393 registrations of intent, which meant about 23 people competed for each unit.

The first batch of 388 flats sold out in one day last Friday, pushing up the first-hand sales volume in April to about 1,030, which surpassed the total for the first quarter of the year, the agent said.

Another property agency expects the overall number of property transactions in May to climb to a five-month high of some 7,000.

Hong Kong developers have already launched hundreds of flats at knock-down prices in a bid to make up for lost time as the city began to emerge from months of strict social-distancing measures that made house sales all-but impossible.

Analysts predict a surge in supply, as more cut-price projects are launched in the coming months, will suppress house prices.

Another agency expects that this year’s mass home prices to drop by about 5 per cent, a downgrade of its previous forecast of a rise of up to 5 per cent.

“We expect a high concentration of launches in the second half of 2022, with potentially over 20,000 units to be issued with presale consent, similar to the previous peak in 2018,” another agent said. “Combined with increasing interest rates, housing prices will be under pressure.”

The agency said that developers had postponed launches originally slated for the first few months of the year. Four projects consisting of 1,211 units acquired presale consent but were held back during the first quarter as fifth wave of coronavirus struck.

“The high level of expected supply in the primary market is likely to prompt developers to take on competitive pricing strategies, which in turn will exert pressure on the secondary market,” a property agent said.

Heitman Buys Hong Kong Industrial Asset From New World Heir for Reported $57M

Heitman has acquired an industrial building in Hong Kong’s Fanling area from a grandson of New World founder Cheng Yu-tung for a reported HK$450 million ($57.33 million), with the US fund manager planning to transform the asset into a refrigerated storage facility.

The Chicago-based fund manager announced on Wednesday that it has purchased the New China Laundry building in Fanling, in the eastern New Territories, and will convert the 101,463 square foot (9,426 square metre) property into a cold chain facility within the next 12 months.

“We are pleased to add to our existing industrial and commercial portfolio in Hong Kong by acquiring this strategically located asset from a rare corporate divestiture and look forward to executing our business plan of transforming the property into a best-in-class cold chain logistics center,” Heitman head of acquisitions for Asia Pacific Brad Fu said in the statement.

While Heitman declined to comment on the price paid for the asset or the beneficial owner of the vendor, Hong Kong’s company registry shows that the seller is controlled by William Junior Guilherme Doo, son of New World non-executive vice chairman William Doo, with local media reports putting the sale consideration at HK$450 million.

Chilled Valuation

Fu said that with the laundry business, which primarily services hotels and airlines, having been hit hard by the pandemic Heitman was able to secure the 1990-vintage asset at a discounted price, with the purchase having already been completed.

The reported price tag for the six-storey building translates to around HK$4,435 per square foot of built area, with the building occupying a 22,163 square foot site.

Without specifying current tenants, Fu said the building at 6 Yip Cheong Street is now fully leased, and after its conversion will be used as a last-mile distribution hub primarily for storing wine as well as frozen and chilled food products.

“We expect demand for specialized en-bloc facilities to continue to grow on the back of close to full occupancy of cold-storage space currently across Hong Kong,” Fu said.

Heitman picked up the industrial property on behalf of its $750 million Heitman Global Real Estate Partners II which reached a final closing in July 2021. The fund manager has said that with this fresh cash it will invest around $1.5 billion in mispriced, maturing and defensive assets around the world.

“The Hong Kong logistics asset provides geographic and sector diversification while aligning with the smart diversification theme of our proprietary global portfolio construction process. Further, the acquisition is aligned with our global selection of well-positioned assets for re-use in order to benefit from changing consumer demands,” said Gordon Black, senior managing director and portfolio manager at Heitman.

New Fund on the Block

Heitman’s acquisition of 6 Yip Cheong Street is the latest in a series of Fanling deals by international investors over the last 16 months, and the third on the same block.

In September, Blackstone purchased Yip’s Chemical Building at 13 Yip Cheong Street for HK$283 million, with JP Morgan Asset Management following up one month later with its HK$231 million purchase of the Chung Tai Printing Group building at 11 Yip Cheong street – just a few doors down from Heitman’s latest prize.

Including SilkRoad Property Partners’ HK$321 million purchase of the Smile Centre in Fanling in January of last year, international funds have now spent nearly HK$1.3 billion acquiring logistics assets in Fanling, according to data from a property agency. Also during 2021, China Resources Logistics acquired the Mineron Centre in Fanling for HK$695 million.

In a briefing, the agency noted that en bloc industrial transactions hit a five-year high of HK$19.4 billion in Hong Kong last year, with Fanling accounting for more than a quarter of the buildings traded in the sector since the beginning of 2021.

Of the HK$30 billion in Hong Kong real estate investments by international funds since the beginning of last year, some 70 percent went to industrial assets, according to the agency’s figures.

Chengs on the Move

Local news accounts indicated that the seller of the Fanling asset, Success Ocean Ltd, had owned the property since 1999.

Now 48, Willam Doo Jr, who serves as a director of several businesses including New World’s NWS Holdings infrastructure division, The Bank of East Asia and property management firm FSE Lifestyle Services, has sold the New Territories property just a half year after his father’s purchase of a commercial project in London in November 2021.

The 77-year-old real estate tycoon bought the former House of Fraser department store at 68 King William Street in the City of London for around $175 million, making the 11-storey commercial block his first directly owned property in the city.

The Cheng family is one of the richest clans in Hong Kong with the fortune of Henry Cheng – New World’s chairman and the son of Cheng Yu-tung – combined with his family’s wealth ranking the Chengs third on Forbes’ 2021 rich list for the city.

據市場知情人士透露,中環中心5106至7室,建築面積約4233方呎,新以每呎約80元續租,月租約338640元,上址於早前由同一商戶以每呎約95元租用,並於近期決定續租,最新租金較舊租金下調15.7%,但已屬貼市水平。

據地產代理指出,上址由資深投資者,外號「小巴大王」馬亞木持有,本報於昨日向馬亞木兒子馬橋生作出查詢,惟未獲回覆。

另一方面,據本港一間代理行綜合土地註冊處資料顯示,工商鋪4月份註冊量錄374宗 (主要反映3月份市況),按月上升約4.5%,註冊金額則錄47.39億,按月升約4.9%。該行認為,隨着第二階段社交距離措施將於5月放寬,第五波疫情的陰霾逐漸消退,預料後市將平穩發展。

該行代理表示,今年以來受疫情影響,隨著第五波疫情放緩,情況稍有改善。第二階段社交距離限制措施將於今起放寬,預料後市交投將會逐步恢復活躍。

買賣公司形式易手

據業內人士分析指,上述位處尖沙嘴區內核心區地段,亦屬市場罕有商廈供應,早於多年前在市場以暗盤形式放售,當時意向價高達6.5億,料買家購入作長綫收租用途。

租金回報逾3

據代理行資料顯示,該廈近期成交疏落,對上一宗買賣需追溯至2011年底,為該廈3樓及4樓,總樓面約1.14萬方呎,當時以約1.01億售出,平均呎價約8860元。

紀明寶又名紀寶,為活躍於工商鋪市場的資深投資者,他於去年底以約8000萬售出土瓜灣北帝街21至25號匯川大廈地下A至J鋪、地庫及一樓全層,總樓面8220方呎,平均呎價約9732元,物業門闊37呎,買家為本地廠家。現址三名租客,地下A鋪及地庫,面積分別500方呎及1800方呎,由紅酒館月租3.5萬,租期至明年9月30日,地下B至J鋪面積2700方呎,超市月租10.5萬,至2024年8月15日,1樓面積3220方呎,由長者日間中心承租,月租5.5萬,月收合共19.5萬,買家料回報約2.9厘。

此外,紀寶亦於2018年底以8650萬向海航集團購入銅鑼灣yoo Residence基座地下及1樓鋪位,面積約7351方呎,同年中,以8850萬沽同區新時代中心頂層全層,面積3454方呎,持貨逾14年,帳面獲利7700萬。

置地暗盤放售薄扶林百合苑 市場估值逾12億 財團「吼到實」

疫情走勢緩和,樓市氣氛持續向好,豪宅物業更頻錄追捧,據知情人士指,由置地持有的薄扶林百合苑,近日以暗盤形式低調放售,項目最高可建樓面約3.22萬方呎,以近期同區洋房成交呎價約每呎3萬至4萬計算,市場估值約10億至12億,據悉,因同區甚少大型豪宅群放售,近日已有財團積極洽商中。

據知情人士透露,由置地持有多年的薄扶林百合苑,日前突然透過一家國際測量師行,以暗盤招標形式放售,據資料顯示,項目地盤面積為44800方呎,最大地積比率約0.75倍,地契限制最高可建樓面約32255方呎,而隨着該物業暗盤放售,近日已獲財團積極洽購。

有同區代理指出,近期薄扶林區的洋房成交呎價,介乎約3萬至4萬,以項目可建樓面32255方呎計,市場估值介乎約10億至12億。

可建樓面逾3.2萬方呎

此外,項目由7幢3層高的洋房組成,其中A1至A3號洋房面積為4440方呎,而B1至B4號洋房面積則為4506方呎,目前該項目所在地皮,為「住宅 (丙類) 1」用途,若買家購入後作重建,樓高最多為三層(包括開敞式停車間),最高建築物高度不得超過10.67米,以及最大覆蓋面積25%。

項目由7幢洋房組成

該樓盤位於薄扶林沙宣道46號,即在同區知名豪宅貝沙灣,以及芝加哥大學香港校園的中間,屬區內一綫地段,項目於1985年落成入伙,位置臨海,由於前方沒有建築物阻擋,可享無阻擋海景。

同時亦有區內代理指,薄扶林區豪宅交投向來稀少,而洋房業主多數為長期用家,放盤極為少有,當中屬同區較具規模的洋房盤趙苑,目前有4個放盤,大屋面積由2094方呎至2753方呎,叫價由4800萬至7350萬不等,呎價在23000至27000元水平。

此外,鄰近百合苑的海日樓,因業主大部分為自用客,成交量更甚為稀少,對上一宗成交須追溯至去年10月,其雙號屋以1億易手,以大屋面積2457方呎計,呎價約41925元。

投資者開始放眼零售及酒店物業

有外資代理行回顧本年首季物業投資市場表現時指出,在本港第五波疫情下物業投資市場轉靜,各類物業的交投均有減少;然而,少數重要成交仍反映投資者繼續垂青回報穩健的物業,有望為第二季市況帶來轉機。

受疫情影響,加上其他地緣政治因素、股市波動及加息周期開始等亦對投資市場表現帶來衝擊。

若論整體市場在首季錄得的整幢/持有大部分業權的成交,從成交總額的佔比來看,工業物業成交額佔總金額的50%,零售/商場及酒店亦分佔30%及17%。

投資者方面,私募股權房地產基金在總成交金額的佔比高達56%,本地資金亦佔上44%,兩者成為首季市場的主導者。事實上,私募股權房地產基金自2020年以來在本港物業市場上的投資額達到419億元,其對工業物業更是情有獨鍾,在該類物業的投資佔比自2020年的15%急增至2021年的61%。

該行代理表示,雖然首季投資市場非常沉寂,但投資者最近已逐漸放眼於零售及酒店物業,這從近期機構投資者及基金等開始購入整幢酒店及住宅/地塊的成交可見。就零售物業前景而論,新一期消費券發放,加上疫情趨緩,社交距離措施有所放寬後,有助促進零售區的人流,為舖租帶來重要的支持;假如疫情進一步減退,通關有望,則酒店物業的前景將會更為看好。上述因素促使部分投資者掌握先機,趁物業價格已有較大回調時盡早入市。預期第二季開始隨着市場氣氛改善,市面的盤源將會增加。

該行另一代理指出,近年投資者的工業物業成交趨勢亦出現變化,從以往的成交多為發展商購入地皮興建新式工廈作為自用,到近年基金等投資者大手進行工業買賣,為分層工廈及倉庫的價格帶來支持。工業物業市場去年出現一輪熾熱成交,成交宗數幾乎是2020年的三倍,以致盤源極速被吸納,而本年首季市場遇冷,投資宗數亦按季大跌33%,至570宗,當中僅有兩宗為整幢物業成交。不過,由於疫情下電子商貿的需求有增無減,導致物流物業的需求仍然穩固,未受最近一輪疫情影響,因此投資者仍然繼續積極尋找工業物業投資機會,特別是呎價較小、回報率達3厘或以上的物業最受青睞。

該行另一代理稱,本港豪宅市場在首季開局不俗,頻錄大手成交,包括大潭道45號的5號洋房以4.538億元售出;另一幅位於淺水灣的罕有政府住宅地皮以招標方式售出,以每方呎樓面地價62355元刷新紀錄,成為呎價地王。可惜的是,本港第五波疫情爆發,加上俄烏戰事及加息周期等外圍因素,給樓市的良好勢頭澆了一盤冷水,令市場活動驟減;然而,隨着疫情逐步緩和,近期成交以特色項目為主,價格亦逐漸邁向第五波疫情前的水平,預料來季投資者及基金等對豪宅及地塊的興趣將會持續。

鄧成波家族再放售30物業

「舖王」鄧成波離世快將一年,其家族成員繼續積極出售資產。近日市場流傳一張由鄧氏家族成員持有的物業清單,包括住宅、工廈、商舖等物業,清單附有物業的最新叫價及狀况,共30項,綜合計算,整批叫價共逾70億元。本報就上述資料向鄧成波兒子鄧耀昇旗下陞域集團查詢,發言人稱不回應。

叫價共逾70億 蔚盈軒全幢減價一成

據代理消息,該家族部分物業售價略有調整,如九龍城蔚盈軒全幢,去年放售價約20億元,近日減價至約18億元,減幅一成。若以總樓面66,428方呎計,呎價約2.7萬元水平。據悉物業每月租金收入約200萬元,若以最新叫價出售,買家可獲租金回報約1.3厘。

另觀塘開源道50號利寶時中心地下1及2號舖,面積約2076方呎,放售價亦由去年1.2億元下調15%至最新的1.02億元,呎價約4.91萬元。事實上,自鄧成波離世後,該家族接連出售所持物業,如上月就以1150萬元售出尖沙嘴北京道永樂大樓地下1A號舖,該家族早於2008年以1000萬元購入,持貨14年,帳面僅獲利150萬元或15%。

佳明相關人士7400萬購宏創方兩層連車

另外,近日市場有不少投資者入市工商物業,資料顯示,大角嘴必發道128號新式工廈宏創方地下停車場連1樓及2樓全層,上月初以7400萬元售出,買家以恩柏投資有限公司 (YAN PAK INVESTMENTS LIMITED),董事包括劉志華、劉凱恩等,其中劉志華為佳明 (1271) 執行董事及行政總裁,而恩柏投資註冊地址同為佳明位於尖沙嘴漆咸道南39號鐵路大廈總部。上述物業包括11個私家車位、5個輕型貨車位及兩個電單車位,另1樓及2樓建築面積共約10,627方呎,連1468方呎平台,呎價約6963元。

不過,亦有投資者趁機沽貨,資料顯示,西環卑路乍街139號金堂大廈地下A舖,面積約700方呎,連約400方呎閣樓,總面積約1100方呎,上月以3700萬元售出,呎價約3.36萬元。原業主為環亞拍賣董事總經理區蘊聰等人,2018年透過買殼形式購入,當時有傳購入價約3300萬元,持貨約4年,帳面獲利約400萬元或12%。

Layout revealed for Tai Po flats


Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) has unveiled the layout of Phase 1 of Silicon Hill in Tai Po, which will provide 576 flats.

Around 70 percent of the flats in the project have two or fewer bedrooms, and studio units with areas of around 230 square feet account for only a "very small proportion," the developer said.

The sales brochure is under preparation and the sales could be launched this month, it added.

In Ho Man Tin, Kerry Properties (0683) has unveiled the first price list for 10 LaSalle, involving 30 one-bedroom flats at an average price per square foot of HK$23,300 after discounts.

The batch, which comprises flats from 319 sq ft to 409 sq ft, is priced from HK$7.38 million to HK$9.33 million after discounts, or from HK$20,989 per sq ft to HK$25,559 per sq ft, the developer said.

The completed project provides 73 homes in total and 11 of them have been sold via tender with the developer raking in over HK$450 million.

Sales will take place next week at the earliest and the future batches may cost more, it said, adding that six flats on the 12th floor are open for viewing.

In Kowloon City, Country Garden (2007) has released the sales brochure of Allegro, which offers 190 homes from 213 to 414 sq ft.

In Chung Hom Kok, a 42,496-sq-ft site which could be turned into a luxury residential development is seeking a sale by tender with a valuation of around HK$2 billion, according to a real estate firm.

In the commercial market, Lofter Group said it plans to acquire the majority portion of a HK$1.5 billion property in Tsim Sha Tsui with partners for a Grade-A commercial redevelopment.

Meanwhile, Hysan Development (0014) and Chinachem have applied for a 2 percent increase in buildable area for the HK$19.78 billion commercial site on Caroline Hill Road in Causeway Bay they secured last May.

英基標售環角道豪宅地 市場估值逾18億 可建3.1萬呎

繼置地日前暗盤放售薄扶林豪宅項目後,英基書院持有南區舂坎角環角道30號地皮,於昨日招標放售,項目最高可建樓面約3.15萬方呎,若參考近期淺水灣南灣道豪宅地成交呎價約每呎6.2萬,市場估值約18至20億。

由英基持有的舂坎角環角道30號屋地,距離赤柱著名地標美利樓約11分鐘步程,毗鄰皆為低密度住宅、綠化地帶及海岸保護區,現為32幢2層高住宅別墅連64個車位及保安室,地盤面積為42496方呎,按最高地積比0.75倍計,可建樓面約31565方呎。而英基持有該地皮作員工宿舍之用。

現為英基員工宿舍

而負責是次招標的代理行指,項目屬區內罕有地皮,前臨赤柱灣內灣,享無遮擋海灣、陽光及沙灘景致,規模不俗,可建數幢8000方呎至10000方呎大屋,連數千呎花園,為內地客最鍾情類型,將於本年6月30日截標,料有機會創區內呎價最高紀錄。

如果參考本年2月淺水灣南灣道豪宅地呎價約62352元,是次地皮市場估值約18至20億。而美國加息對於用家、特別是豪客而言影響不大,預料未來豪宅樓價將會平穩發展。

地盤面積4.24萬呎

該行代理表示,舂坎角屬傳統富裕社區,驅車25分鐘可到達中環及金鐘商業區,同時鄰近知名院校,截至去年十月,物業約九成別墅均已租出,租金收入穩定,預期會吸引投資者。

晟林複式招標推

此外,該行獲接管人委託,招標出售喇沙利道晟林18樓至19樓頂層複式A單位,面積3949方呎,連910方呎私家天台,另可配售一至三個車位,招標時間由本月10日至7月8日。

尖沙嘴漢口道舊樓作價15億 樂風夥外資基金收購 將重建甲廈項目

疫情走勢持續穩定,發展商紛加快收購步伐。樂風集團昨日公布,夥拍外資基金施羅德資本及BentallGreenOak,斥資逾15億收購尖沙嘴漢口道舊樓大部分業權,每呎地價約12953元,項目僅餘一伙住宅未獲收購,將申請強拍統一業權,重建甲廈項目。

樂風集團昨日公布,夥拍外資基金施羅德資本及BentallGreenOak,已完成收購尖沙嘴漢口道31至37號物業的大部分業權,擬重建甲級商廈。樂風集團創辦人及主席周佩賢昨日接受本報訪問時表示,上述項目總投資額約25億,僅餘一伙住宅因未達成共識,故尚未獲收購,是次重建項目坐落於尖沙嘴核心區漢口道,是區內主要街道之一,並毗鄰港鐵站出入口,周邊各項商業配套完善,擬建甲級商廈項目發展。

周佩賢:總投資額25

她續指出,第五波疫情已步入尾聲,預期商貿活動與日俱增,帶動本港經濟將穩步復甦,若中港兩地可通關,屆時物業市場將迎來「報復式」反彈。

故儘管甲廈現時正處供應高峰期,惟她對後市仍具信心,並指集團將「吼準」於傳統核心商業區及同類供應較短缺的地區收購重建發展。

每呎地價1.29

樂風集團投資管理總監梁鎮峰表示,該地盤面積約9650方呎,規劃為『商業 (甲類)』地盤,可建樓面約11.58萬方呎,總收購價逾15億,每呎樓面地價約12953元。

該地盤位於漢口道中段,臨街面闊逾33米,零售鋪位價值高。該地皮的發展將融合各種頂尖技術、優質建築設計、綠色環保及可持續發展概念,以及具前瞻性的科技智能配套等。

尚餘1伙住宅未收購

集團已收購該項目的大部分不可分割業權,目前尚餘一伙未能達成共識的單位,集團已開展強拍程序的預備工作以統一業權。

事實上,作為新晉發展商,樂風集團近年迅速冒起,去年底夥拍博領資產管理及石壁投資牽頭財團,完成收購佐敦南京街11至21號大部分業權,涉資7.5億,共涉及4幢物業,地盤面積約7250方呎,該地段現時劃入商業用途,預計項目總收購價約8.3億,以最高地積比率12倍計算,樓面呎價約9540元。

首季商廈買賣登記 僅165宗7季新低

疫情衝擊商廈買賣,有代理行指,首季商廈僅錄165宗成交,為7季新低。

該行代理表示,商廈買賣登記上月失守半百宗,而首季合共亦只錄得165宗登記,除按季大挫38%外,更創自2020年第3季以來的7季新低。根據土地註冊處數據,2022年3月份全港共錄49宗商廈買賣登記 (數字主要反映2至4星期前商廈市場實際市況),較2月份的50宗減少1宗,連跌4個月兼創近19個月低位,惟跌勢已見喘穩。

3月份登記量處低位橫行,而成交金額則跌達35%,主因是個別大額登記減少而導致3月份商廈買賣登記金額跌至只有約7.5億元,連跌3個月,創近20個月以來最少。至於,3月份最矚目的單一登記項目為灣仔富通大廈6樓連2個車位,涉及合約金額1.45億元;其次為尖沙咀東海商業中心12樓1202室連2個車位的7,500萬元登記。

按物業價格劃分,在7個價格組別的登記量當中,錄得3跌4升。在跌幅者中,以200萬元至500萬元以內組別的58%跌幅最急劇,月內登記量由2月的19宗大減至3月的8宗;而1億元或以上的大碼組別亦跌50%,只錄得1宗登記。至於登記量最活躍的是介乎500萬至1,000萬元以內組別,月內錄得15宗,按月上升50%;而逆市錄得最大升幅者為銀碼在200萬元以內的超細價組別,登記量按月大增1.5倍,錄得5宗買賣登記。

11分區 3區零成交

以地區劃分,在該行觀察的11個分區當中,共有5區的登記量按月下跌;當中更有3區跌至「零成交」的淡況,包括北角/炮台山區、西營盤/堅尼地城區及九龍灣區。至於長沙灣區買賣登記量亦按月挫50%至只有2宗,而上環/中環/金鐘區也減少20%,3月份錄12宗買賣登記,但已晉身成為該月登記量最活躍的觀察區。至於逆市錄得最顯著升幅的是旺角/油麻地區,由2月份的5宗增加至3月份的9宗,升幅達80%。

代理指出,商廈市道自去年底起連跌4個月,其間經歷第5波疫情,令交投陷入谷底,但相信最壞時刻已過。隨着本港疫情明顯好轉,社交距離措施逐步放寬,商機重現下令市場氣氛回暖;4月份截至27日為止,商廈買賣登記量已追平3月份全月,料4月份最終可達55宗,按月將反彈逾1成。隨着疫情持續改善,預期次季商廈交投將回升至195宗的水平,料較首季的165宗反彈18%。

銅鑼灣商地申寬樓面 新增樓面料作文化設施

去年由希慎興業 (00014) 及華懋奪得的銅鑼灣加路連山道百億商業地王,近期向城規會提交發展藍圖,及申請放寬約2%總樓面至約109.8萬平方呎,以發展3座商廈,將提供商業、社會福利設施、演藝及文化場地等。

規劃署表示不反對,料該申請方案今日可獲城規會通過。

規劃署不反對 城規料批出

地皮前身為機電工程署總部等設施,對面是希慎旗下利園六期,佔地約15.93萬平方呎。申請人早前向會方申請,將分區計劃大綱圖內的總樓面面積限制由約107.6萬平方呎,輕微增加2%至約109.8萬平方呎,新增的2.2萬平方呎樓面將作為演藝及文化設施。地皮計劃以地積比率約6.89倍,發展3座16至24層高 (另設5層地庫) 的商廈,預計2029年第三季落成。

文件顯示,第1及2座的地庫1層至5樓將作為商業用途,5樓部分將用作演藝及文化設施,2樓將設有城市公園及橫跨地盤內擬議道路的景觀天橋,及延伸至利園六期的擬議行人天橋。

用途靈活 酒店獲財團熱捧

第2季投資市場開始轉活,其中市場連錄酒店大手買賣及洽購,由於酒店格價回落,加上可更改用途,故成財團熱捧對象。

受疫情影響下,本年首季投資市場淡靜,市場罕有錄得大手買賣。即使交投不及去年活躍,酒店卻成功跑出,首季已錄得數宗酒店成交,包括莊士機構國際 (00367) 持有的紅磡逸.酒店 (Hotel sáv),以16.5億元售出,物業佔地面積約1.02萬平方呎,總樓面面積合共約12.21萬平方呎,設有388間客房,買家為外資基金AEW。

九龍珀麗酒店13.75億易手

踏入第2季,多個酒店項目獲財團洽購,部分更正式易手,較大手交為九龍珀麗酒店以13.75億元成交。物業位於大角咀道86號,於2011年落成及開業,地盤面積約9,090平方呎,總樓面約11萬平方呎。項目樓高27層,提供435間房,天台則為酒吧。以13.75億元成交價計,每間房價值約316萬元。買家為共居品牌weave LIVING,該集團指與環球房地產資產公司落實收購大角咀九龍珀麗酒店,成為集團旗下迄今規模最大的物業。weave LIVING將進行全面翻新,包括為部分房間重新布局,將物業打造成時尚、配套完備、靈活租期的現代住宿空間。

weave LIVING近年積極在港擴充,去年已先後兩度入市,包括以2.95億元收購西半山醫院道6至8號全幢住宅物業,涉48間房。

西環華麗都會酒店9.5億洽至尾聲

另外,西環華麗都會酒店全幢,亦獲9.5億元洽購,物業於2015年落成,地盤面積約4,928平方呎。樓高32層,地下為大堂,1樓為停車場,7至32樓為酒店房間,提供214間房,總樓面面積約6萬平方呎。據了解,酒店暫作隔離檢疫用途,現時每晚房價約600元。消息稱,物業正獲財團出價洽購,涉約9.5億元,按洽購價計,每間房價值約444萬元,樓面呎價約1.58萬元。

物業由華大集團持有,該集團一直營運酒店,較早前以約14.5億元,向鄧成波家族購入荃灣汀蘭居全幢酒店,涉及435間房,平均每個房間作價333萬元,如今或進行換貨,放售西環項目。另外,該業主持有的北角華美達盛景酒店,消息指亦獲積極洽購,涉資約11億元,以該酒店涉317間房間計,每個房間涉資347萬元。

分析指,疫情下不少酒店入住率偏低,特別涉及旅客生意的3星、4星酒店,整體價格回落,開始吸引財團留意。由於共居概念興起,個別財團看好市區優質地段酒店,可改作共居用途,因此趁低價入市。由於本地住屋需求強勁,租金穩定,故共居概念仍有一定前景,料財團續吸納酒店。

New launches, rate fears hit secondary market


Secondary home sales at 10 major housing estates declined over the weekend, amid ample primary market supplies and imminent interest rate hikes, according to a property agency.

Only 11 deals were recorded, which was four less than a week ago, the agency said. The number slightly rose to 13 during the three-day holiday if the Monday figure is included.

A property agent said that the ample supply of homes in new projects, anticipated interest rate hikes, and a decline in home viewing appointments on Mother's Day led to the fall in the number of deals.

It may take some time for buyers to digest the news of US interest rate increases, the agent said, adding that they now prefer to wait and see the trend of property prices after the hikes kick in.

Meanwhile, Henderson Land Development (0012) sold at least seven flats over the long weekend and cashed in over HK$67 million, said Mark Hahn Ka-fai, a general manager of the sales department.

The Holborn in Quarry Bay recorded three deals after kicking off sales of 20 flats yesterday.

The developer released the third price list last week, offering 45 units at an average price per sq ft of HK$24,355 after discounts.

Two Artlane in Sai Ying Pun also saw one transaction, and the developer has raked in nearly HK$2 billion from the sales of this project, Hahn said.

In Ho Man Tin, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said the showrooms at Prince Central will open to the public today.

Located at 195 Prince Edward Road West, the completed project provides 101 flats ranging from 251 square feet to 1,351 sq ft.

The developer said the price will be unveiled soon and sales may take place within the week.

One-bedroom and studio units account for over 70 percent of the total number of flats in the project and the SHKP previously released the first price list of 50 units last year but the sales were later scrapped.

On the luxury front, Sino Land (0083) and CLP (0002) sold a 2,140-square-foot home at St. George's Mansion in Ho Man Tin for HK$105 million, or HK$49,065 per sq ft, via tender.

Home rents along Hong Kong’s East Rail Line expected to rebound quickly after opening of new cross-harbour extension

More families from Hong Kong Island East are looking for bigger flats in northeastern New Territories, property agent said

Rents in Tai Wai, Sha Tin and Ma On Shan could increase by about 5 to 15 per cent in coming months

Rents at housing developments along Hong Kong’s East Rail Line are expected to rebound first, following the opening of the line’s cross-harbour extension on Sunday, May 15, agents said.

The extension will cut travel times between Tai Wai and Sha Tin in New Territories and Admiralty on Hong Kong Island to about 17 to 21 minutes from 28 to 32 minutes previously, making these areas more attractive to renters, they said, adding that some homeowners in Tai Wai and Sha Tin were already refusing to cut rents. Commuters from these two areas will be able to travel directly to Admiralty from Sunday, instead of changing lines in Kowloon Tong and Mong Kok currently.

“Mainland Chinese students were the major source of demand in these two areas previously, as they are close to Chinese University of Hong Kong and City University of Hong Kong. But we have seen more families from Hong Kong Island East look for bigger flats here,” property agent said.

The 16-station East Rail Line will connect northeastern New Territories directly with central Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Commuters will be able to reach the commercial and financial hubs in the Wan Chai North and Admiralty areas without changing lines. Admiralty station will become a mega interchange for four railway lines – East Rail Line, Tsuen Wan line, Island line and South Island line.

Families are looking for 1,400 to 1,600 sq ft, three to four-bedroom flats in Tai Wai and even in Ma On Shan, where rents are more affordable than Hong Kong Island, Tsang said. He recently helped a family lease a 1,602 sq ft four-bedroom flat at the two-year-old The Entrance development near Wu Kai Sha station for HK$65,000 (US$8,280) per month. “The project is new, and comes with a sea view,” the agent said.

In Wu Kai Sha, more renters are looking for large units in Altissimo and St Berths since late April, the agent added. Buying activity, however, remains stagnant as demand has been dampened by a potential interest rate hike and uncertainties about the mainland border reopening, the agent said.

Rents in Tai Wai, Sha Tin and Ma On Shan would have greater upside potential in coming months, increasing by about 5 to 15 per cent, the agent said. Viewing appointments had increased by 20 to 30 per cent over the last weekend from the previous weekend, the agent added.

Rents of lived-in homes have fallen 11 per cent after reaching a peak in August 2019, according to the latest Rating and Valuation Department data.

“Home rents dropped most in the first quarter, when the city’s Covid-19 pandemic was worsening, as most owners refused to open their flats for viewing,” another agent said.

Rents in Tai Wai, however, may come under pressure once again, when the phase one of New World Development’s 700-unit Pavilia Farm comes due for occupation in September. “By that time, more new flats will come on the market for leasing and offer more choices to renters,” the agent said.

But the leasing market in Sheung Shui, the second last stop before Lo Wu on the East Rail Line, appears to not have attracted many takers following the news of the new cross-harbour extension.

“We have not seen more purchasers or renters visiting Sheung Shui. But the positive news will bring the area back to buyers or renters’ radar again later,” another agent said.

中環商廈打造共享工作空間 華懋蔡宏興:入場月租3000元

共享工作空間近年大行其道,發展商紛紛加快發展步伐。華懋集團執行董事兼行政總裁蔡宏興表示,集團旗下全新品牌CCG Commons夥拍營運商the Hive,於中環華懋大廈打造全新共享工作空間,命名為the Hive Central X CCG Commons,合共有四層,總樓面約17027方呎,入場租金由每月3000元起,項目於本月底開業,洽租情況理想,目前出租率約15%。

蔡宏興接本報訪問時指出,該集團成立全新品牌「CCG Commons」,涵蓋三大方向,包括同創、連繫及成長,該品牌首個發展項目,為夥拍共享辦公室品牌the Hive於中環干諾道中34至37號華懋大廈,打造全新共享工作空間,名為the Hive Central X CCG Commons,分布於該廈3樓、6樓、13樓及21樓,總樓面約17027方呎,合共提供270流動辦公桌及38間私人辦公室。

租戶包括科技及專業服務

蔡氏續指出,該項目位處傳統核心商業區,各項配套完善,由華懋集團擁有,項目現正進行試業並招租,於本月底會正式開業,現今收到逾百宗租務查詢,目前出租率達15%,比預期為高,租戶包括科技、專業服務、新經濟行業等,月租由3000元起,租期由一個月起,靈活程度甚高,並強調新落成且具質素的寫字樓於市場上具優勢。

看好疫下後市發展

至於the Hive為業內跨國營運商,於2012年成立,在亞太區多個國家擁有21個據點,當中本港有10個據點。

對於疫市下寫字樓租務最新市況,蔡宏興分析指,受第五波疫情打擊,市場近兩個月租務交投稍放緩,惟甲廈市場近期已見改善,加上疫情加劇市場對靈活辦公室的需求,故預期更多企業會採用同類辦公室,後市值得看俏。

擬推獨立智能工作艙

另一方面,他又指出,集團將會推出獨立智能工作艙,於旗下各大商場作流動會議室、辦公空間、學習室等。此外,集團將推出旗下首個共居空間項目,選址位於荃灣如心廣場,約有兩至三層,料於明年首季推出,主攻年輕專業人士客源。

上月錄約357宗工商鋪買賣 代理行:表現「量跌價升」

第五波疫情持續減退,部分社交距離措施提早放寬,加上第一期消費券派發,以及東鐵綫過海段即將通車等利好因素推動下,整體工商鋪市場氣氛回暖。有代理行資料統計,4月份市場共錄約357宗成交,較3月份微升約0.85%。該代理行預測,市況繼續向好發展,4月份出現逾10宗大額買賣,令金額較3月份提升近30%,預料未來一至兩個月大額買賣活躍。

共錄約13宗逾億成交

該行代理表示,根據該行資料,4月份市場共錄約357宗工商鋪買賣成交,按月微升約0.85%,對比去年4月同期則跌約49.07%,總金額呈增長趨勢,4月份共錄約91.93億,較3月份升約29.81%,按年遞減約29.15%,反映4月份大額成交較多。4月份共錄約13宗逾億成交,工廈佔大比數,最大額成交為葵涌貨櫃碼頭路43號集運中心全幢,成交價約28億。

寫字樓表現突出

按類別分析,寫字樓表現突出,成交宗數錄約53宗,按月升約60.61%,帶動總金額急升至約7.64億,對比3月份倍增約76.5%;鋪位買賣宗數同樣攀升約19.10%,共錄約106宗,總金額約27.48億,較3月份下跌約27.34%。工廈出現量跌價升情況,買賣宗數回落至不足200宗,僅錄約198宗,按月減約14.6%,金額則因有3宗逾億元成交而推動至56.81億。

該代理分析,相信在大額交投帶動下,工商鋪於5月及6月持續上揚。

市建局西營盤項目今截意向

近年港島區住宅地供應罕有,多年來未有土地推出招標,市建局相隔逾5年再有新供應,為西營盤崇慶里/桂香街發展項目,將於今日截收意向書,料將成為各路發展商搶奪對象;綜合市場估值,上述地皮估值介乎約14.7億至16.1億,每方呎樓面地價約15500至17000元。

市場估值達16

西營盤一帶多年來未有土地供應,上述項目位於崇慶里1至7號、桂香街12至16號及德輔道西216至218號,鄰近私樓薈,距離港鐵西營盤站其中一個出口僅2分鐘步程。

地盤面積約11596方呎,可建總樓面約94766方呎,當中包括約4306方呎的商業樓面面積,住宅部分可興建約165伙。據市建局構思,透過該項目的規劃及設計,提升崇慶里兒童遊樂場的可達性,並改善從德輔道西和桂香街通往該項目的現有行人網絡。

地盤鄰近西營盤站

另外,中標發展商,須按發展協議中列明的標準與品質、可持續發展和智能系統的要求,興建新發展項目,以提供一個可持續發展的生活環境。

資料顯示,上述項目是該局於2017年7月展開,並於2018年5月以每方呎面積23568元向小業主提出收購價建議,為該局首次提出破2萬的收購價,當時創新高紀錄,其後2019年8月被中西區皇后大道西/賢居里每方呎收購價24051元打破。

有測量師認為,上述項目是難得的港島地盤,由於發展規模適中,相信可以吸引各類型的發展商遞交意向書;另外,項目交通及生活配套齊全,毗鄰港鐵站、附近亦有其他交通工具往各地,鄰近亦有街市和各類餐廳。綜合市場估值,上述地皮估值介乎約14.7億至16.1億,每方呎樓面地價約15500至17000元。

外資基金看好工廈 屢錄大手成交

疫情緩和,投資氣氛好轉,而工廈市場率先反彈,不論分層及全幢均錄大手成交,買家多為外資基金,看好本港市場前景。

近日工商舖大額買賣增加,當中以工廈市場表現較佳,連錄多宗逾億元買賣,包括全幢工廈買賣。其中粉嶺業暢街6號新中國洗衣集團大廈全幢以4.5億元易手,物業地盤面積約22,163平方呎,總面積約101,463平方呎,以4.5億元成交價計,呎價約4,435元。項目於1990年落成,近年由業主自用。翻查資料,原業主於1999年以3,868.8萬元購入,持貨23年轉手,獲利約4.11億,物業升值約10.6倍。

據悉,買家為Heitman,該財團屬美資房地產基金,於澳洲、韓國等均設有辦事處。該基金去年成功集資,將投資逾百億元物業,而是次屬首度於香港入市。消息指,是次購入該工廈項目,將轉作凍倉用途,作長綫收租。事實上,該區全幢工廈去年亦獲基金承接,包括葉氏化工集團,以約2.826億元沽出業暢街13號葉氏化工大廈,成交呎價約4,424元;買家為外資黑石基金,料購入轉作迷你倉用途。

另外,興勝創建 (00896) 以逾2.11億元,沽出沙田工業中心一籃子物業,涉及物業A座4樓的1至23號工作間及位於該廈2樓的兩個車位。總樓面約28,050平方呎,呎價約7,522元。沙田工業中心旁邊為九巴沙田車廠,並鄰近港鐵第一城站、帝逸酒店、住宅欣廷軒等。據了解,是次新買家為加拿大基金Brookfield Asset Management。據了解,新買家計劃購入上述物業作迷你倉業務。

柴灣工廈3層樓面 1.8億售

分層工廈成基金追捧對象,柴灣沙咀道68至76號大成大廈23、24及25樓3層全層,以合共1.8億元售出,每層面積15,818平方呎,合共總面積約47,454平方呎,呎價約3,793元。原業主早於30多年前購入,沽貨賺逾1.64億元,升值10.5倍。據了解,新買家為外資基金SilkRoad,該基金近一年多次購工廈,包括斥11.6億元購入屯門恒威工業中心一籃子物業,以及以3.21億元購入粉嶺安全街堅達中心全幢。

分析指,不少基金近一兩年均成功集資,並有興趣投資本港市場。在工商舖市場中,工廈呎價低,用途廣泛包括物流中心、迷你倉及數據中心等,均提供穩定租金回報,正合基金投資方向。事實上,去年工廈為大額物業投資市場焦點,料今年情況持續。

大角咀利.晴坊23 商舖1.2億招標

民生區基座商場具投資價值,現大角咀利.晴坊23商舖部分,以1.2億元標售。

包括5舖平台 連車位

發展商續拆售非核心物業,有代理指,有利集團及市建局合作發展的新盤大角咀利.晴坊23,最新放售商場平台連車位、廣告位業權,市值約1.2億元。以商場樓面計算,平均呎價1.12萬元。截標日期為5月13日。

項目包括5個商舖 (地下1至3號舖、地下4號舖連1樓、地下5號舖連1樓),商場平台建築面積約10,701平方呎,另有5個商用車位及5個廣告位置。由於商舖已分契,若果投資者購入可以將舖位「即買即拆售」

住宅新盤商舖獲投資者留意,如3月份佐敦德成街2號本木商舖部分,以2.1億元成交。涉及地舖及1樓,總樓面約1萬平方呎,平均呎價約2.1萬元。現時舖位部分樓面由咖啡店租用。本木樓高23層,於2021年4月入伙,合共提供172個單位,發展商於2020年尾開售。

甲廈連續6個月 錄淨吸納量

甲廈租務有改善,仲量聯行報告指,甲廈連續6個月錄淨吸納量,中環租金按月微跌。

有外資代理行最新發表的市場報告指出,盡管持續的社交距離措施令3月寫字樓租賃市場淡靜,整體甲級寫字樓租賃市場仍連續6個月錄得淨吸納量。

第5波疫情下,現行社交距離措施延長,導致3月租賃交投活動淡靜。不過,由於租戶需求持續增長,整體甲級寫字樓市場仍錄得56,200平方呎淨吸納量。

中環空置率回落 租金跌0.1%

該行代理表示,靈活辦公空間毋須企業作長期承諾便可使用設備齊全的辦公室,這在業務增長或市況未明的情況下尤其重要,因此,愈來愈多企業把靈活辦公空間列入其地產組合內,帶動靈活空間擴充。

該行另一代理表示,隨着新供應落成,3月底整體市場的空置率升至9.4%,較2月份9.1%,升0.3個百分點。中環空置率進一步回落,由2月底7.4%,跌至7.3%,至於港島東,空置率為7.9%,按月升0.2個百點,九龍東空置率持續偏高,最新為12.5%,仍然為各主要分區市場中最高。

上月整體甲級寫字樓租金按月下跌0.2%。主要分區市場中,中環租金月內微跌0.1%,而港島東錄得最大租金跌幅。

佐敦香港體檢中心 打造醫生樓

佐敦香港體檢中心位於區內心臟地段,交通配套甚佳,並以醫生樓作主題,非常適合各類型醫務所使用。

香港體檢中心位於佐敦彌敦道及佐敦道交界,項目處於佐敦最繁忙地段的十字路口,對面為地標裕華國貨,故物業可謂處於區內心臟地段。交通上,從港鐵佐敦站步行至該廈,需時僅數分鐘。值得一提,由該廈步行至柯士甸站及西九龍高鐵站僅約10分鐘,故日後通關,亦適合內地人前往該廈睇醫生及進行體檢。另外,物業附近的彌敦道、佐敦道均有多條巴士綫,絕對四通八達。

其他配套上,物業地下設有商舖,附近佐敦道及彌敦道食店林立,而佐敦亦有不少酒店,設有餐廳,整體配套理想。

物業樓高16層,設有兩部升降機,由於大廈以醫療為主題,出入不乏傷健人士,業主於入口提供設備,方便傷健人士等上落。

樓上各層面積約4,100平方呎,除全層用戶外,個別樓層可分間成4單位,單位面積由921平方呎起,可讓較小型的醫務所使用。景觀方面,大廈單位主要向望佐敦道樓景。

香港體檢租10 獲命名權

大廈前身為金峰大廈,於1960年落成,地盤面積約5,000平方呎,總樓面約60,798平方呎。2018年,資本策略 (00497) 斥資約21億元購入物業,平均呎價3.4萬元。物業對面的嘉賓商業大廈為傳統「醫生樓」,故資本策略購入,斥資數千萬元進行大翻新,現時大廈地下大堂甚新淨,外形亦較以前理想。大廈去年完成翻新工程,業主把物業打造成以醫務為主題商廈。

物業完成翻新前,已錄大手租務,由香港體檢及醫學診斷中心租用2至11樓共10層,當中2至3樓每層建築面積5,866平方呎,其餘各層建築面積4,153平方呎,總建築面積約44,956平方呎,月租202.3萬元,呎租約45元。是次租期由明年3月初至2025年2月底,為期4年,並有5年續租權,同時獲大廈命名權。

Brookfield Buys Hong Kong Storage Space From Hanison for $27M After Acquiring RedBox

Brookfield has agreed to acquire industrial assets in Hong Kong’s New Territories from Hanison Construction for HK$211.3 million ($26.9 million), following closely behind the Canadian asset management giant’s under-the-radar purchase of local self-storage operator RedBox.

The assets comprise workshops 1 to 23 on the fourth floor of Block A at Shatin Industrial Centre and car parking spaces V49 and V55 on the second floor of the building, Hanison said Tuesday in a filing with the Hong Kong stock exchange.

Market sources tell Mingtiandi that Brookfield plans to convert the Shatin industrial units into a self-storage facility under the RedBox portfolio, tapping a hot sector that has also seen a series of conversion-led acquisitions by rival investor Blackstone. RedBox executives declined to comment.

Toronto-based Brookfield quietly bought RedBox Storage from InfraRed NF in a deal that closed in March, sources said. InfraRed NF is a joint venture of Hong Kong developer Nan Fung Group and British investment firm InfraRed Capital Partners, which is exiting the real estate business to focus strictly on infrastructure. Brookfield representatives also declined to comment on the Shatin acquisition or on the takeover of RedBox.

Struggling for Sheds

Situated at 5-7 Yuen Shun Circuit near the City One residential precinct, the partly leased Shatin property generated an annual rental income of HK$3,180,000 and HK$3,485,000 in the financial years ended 31 March 2021 and 31 March 2022, Hanison said. The developer, controlled by the Cha family of Hong Kong Resorts International, expects to book a gain on the disposal of HK$66.2 million.

Upon completion of the transaction, Brookfield will take possession of the 34,525 square foot (3,207 square metre) industrial space, paying roughly HK$6,120 ($780) per square foot for the conversion opportunity.

The limited supply of industrial stock for sale in the market means that investors buying into strata-titled floors can still enjoy a decent return from the assets, a property agent said.

“The mini-storage business seems to be quite active in the last year, and in particular Blackstone and Storefriendly have been buying en-bloc properties to convert into mini-storage,” the agent told Mingtiandi. “This sector will continue to grow despite the fact that there are quite a number of players and operators in the market which offer the similar service and product, hence the growth should be slower depending on the locations.”

Blackstone’s trio of acquisitions in 2021 included the Elegance Printing Centre, a Shau Kei Wan property picked up from the family of late “Shop King” Tang Shing-bor for HK$500 million. That November deal followed the US private equity giant’s HK$282.6 million September purchase of Yip’s Chemical Building in the Fanling area and the HK$508 million April buy of the New Media Tower in Kwun Tong, the latter property having already opened as a Storefriendly location through a joint venture with the local self-storage operator.

Self-Storage Heats Up

InfraRed NF acquired a 90 percent stake in RedBox in 2018, on the heels of a 2017 investment of $28 million in China Mini Storage, a mainland-based self-storage provider.

RedBox was founded in 2014 by E3 Capital Partners, a property investment firm led by Simon Tyrrell, and now owns and operates five self-storage facilities in Shatin, Chai Wan, Yau Tong, Tuen Mun and Tsuen Wan, spanning more than 400,000 square feet of space.

Tyrrell stepped down as RedBox CEO in early 2021 to become a board member and executive chairman, focusing on the company’s strategic initiatives. His successor, Tim Alpe, previously served as chief operating officer of the Ovolo boutique hotel group in Hong Kong and Indonesia.

The New Territories contains the lion’s share of Hong Kong’s 690 self-storage locations with 39 percent, according to data compiled by another property agency, followed by Hong Kong Island with 32 percent and Kowloon with 29 percent. Of the total, 249 buildings are considered old, with 88 percent of them having been built in 1987 or earlier, presenting a potential flight-to-quality opportunity, the property agency said.

東莞銀行傳80萬租中環3層巨舖

疫情持續令本港商舖空置率上升,租金大跌,傳統商業區中環亦有不少巨型舖位待租。市場消息指出,鄰近中環中心的中銀集團人壽保險大廈3層複式、總面積近1.4萬方呎的巨舖,獲一家中資銀行以每月80萬元承租,租金較高位下跌約29%。據知情人士透露,新租戶極有機會為去年才進軍本港市場的東莞銀行,擬開設首間零售銀行分行。

據了解,位於德輔道中134至136號中銀集團人壽保險大廈地庫、地下及1樓3層舖位,地庫建築面積約4639方呎,地下建築面積約4586方呎,1樓建築面積約4622方呎,總建築面積約13847方呎,原以每月120萬元放租約一年,至近期獲洽租,終以約80萬元租出,呎租約58元,成交租金較叫租低33.3%。

較舊約平三成 每呎58

資料顯示,中銀集團人壽保險大廈全幢原由中銀保險持有,於2008年以8億元售予賭王四太梁安琪旗下尚嘉控股,該3層舖位一直租予中銀香港 (02388) 作為分行。舖位對上一份租約為2018至2021年,月租為112.5萬元,租約去年4月屆滿。

中銀香港去年未有續租,舖位過去一年曾短租予散貨場數月,相隔逾一年後才再以長租形式租出,最新租金較舊約下跌28.9%,每月少收32.5萬元。該舖2012年月租曾達96萬元,即最新租金較10年前還要低16萬元或16.7%。

知情人士表示,上述舖位的新租戶為銀行,以東莞銀行的呼聲最高。東莞銀行為大灣區內的城商行之一,去年3月獲金管局授予銀行牌照,並租用中環國際金融中心二期寫字樓單位設立香港分行,是該行目前唯一境外分行。東莞銀行近期再向金管局申請在港設子行的牌照 (本港註冊持牌銀行),新公司命名「莞銀國際」,將染指本地零售銀行市場,估計新承租的舖位將用作首間零售銀行分行。

上址對面的德輔道中141號中保集團大廈地下B舖,建築面積約3805方呎,原由花旗銀行承租多年,惟本月租約期滿並已遷出,舖位現以每月60萬元放租,呎租約158元。花旗銀行的舊租金為66.4萬元,即最新叫租相對回落9.6%。

美資基金4.5億入市 購粉嶺全幢工廈

基金再度吸納本港工廈,粉嶺業暢街全幢工廈,獲美資基金以4.5億元承接,呎價約4,435元,基金購入將作凍倉用途收租。

呎價約4435 將作凍倉

本年初,粉嶺業暢街6號新中國洗衣集團大廈全幢獲財團洽購,涉資約4.5億元。據了解,該項目近日正式易手。物業地盤面積約22,163平方呎,總面積約101,463平方呎,以4.5億元成交價計,呎價約4,435元,物業附設1部貨運升降機及2部客運升降機,另設11貨車位私家車位。項目於1990年落成,近年由業主自用。

原業主於1999年以3,868.8萬元購入,持貨23年轉手,獲利約4.11億元,物業升值約10.6倍。事實上,去年至今粉嶺已錄多宗全幢工廈成交。

據悉,買家為外資基金Heitman,該財團屬美資房地產基金,於澳洲、韓國等均設有辦事處。該基金去年成功集資,將投資逾百億元物業,而是次屬首度於香港入市。消息指,是次購入該工廈項目將轉作凍倉用途,作長綫收租。

投資市場稍轉好,而工廈成交明顯反彈,並多由外資基金承接,如日前興勝創建 (00896) 以逾2.11億元沽出沙田工業中心一籃子物業,新買家為加拿大基金Brookfield,將發展迷你倉。

Sun Hung Kai plans to build 9,940 flats at Yuen Long’s Tam Mei wetlands in one of Hong Kong’s biggest mass housing projects

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) plans to build 9,940 flats at Tam Mei in Yuen Long, according to applications filed with Hong Kong’s Town Planning Board

The project comprises 36 residential towers of between 10 and 29 floors each, translating to about 400 square feet (37 square metres) for each unit on average

A mass housing project is taking shape near the wetlands in Hong Kong’s New Territories, with the potential to accommodate 25,850 residents when it is completed in 2026, a major step towards easing the acute shortage in one of the world’s most expensive cities.

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) plans to build 9,940 flats at Tam Mei in Yuen Long, according to applications filed with Hong Kong’s Town Planning Board.

The project comprises 36 residential towers of between 10 and 29 floors each, translating to about 400 square feet (37 square metres) for each unit on average, according to the plan.

The number of flats being planned, equivalent to Hong Kong’s total home sales in the first seven months of 2021, is about the size of Whampoa Garden in Hung Hom, making it one of the city’s largest residential communities.

The push to develop the area – currently on loan to the city government as a community isolation facility for Covid-19 patients – follows the extension of a transport network to promote Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor’s Northern Metropolis project.

The project is near the planned Au Tau subway station of the Northern Link, about 800 meters away from the station. It takes 10 minutes to reach the “Hong Kong Silicon Valley” San Tin Technopole, which aims to create 148,000 IT-related jobs.

“Now that the Northern Link construction has been revealed, the land should yield residential development to solve Hong Kong’s housing problem, which is better,” said SHKP’s project director Spencer Lu.

SHKP plans to include nearly three hectares of wetlands within the Tam Mei project to balance conservation with its property development. The project includes land that has been earmarked for a primary school, and elderly care homes and amenities.

The northern part of the project, currently being used as Hong Kong’s community isolation facility – has been permitted for transformation into a large-scale retail outlet in the early years, according to the plan.

The southern part has received permission for the construction of a hotel, and is currently mainly a brownfield site for large open-air warehouses. The Koon Chun Sauce Factory sits in the middle of the site. SHKP said it reached an agreement with Koon Chun to relocate its factory to the southern region of the site.

With a plot ratio of 2.2 to 2.5 times for the residential part, that will account for 4 million sq ft in gross floor area. The non-residential part, with a plot ratio of less than 0.1 time, will yield 150,158 sq ft.

The development site will measure 2.11 million sq ft, including housing development that spans 1.75 million sq ft, the relocated sauce factory and a school.

SHKP claims to be the most active developer in converting farmland to residential use. SHKP is experienced in balancing conservation and development, including the construction and rapid sales of Wetland Seasons Park and Wetland Seasons Bay next to the Hong Kong Wetland Park.

The applications will be subject to three weeks of consultation, and is expected to be discussed in a Planning Board meeting in mid-July, when it may be approved or rejected, according to the Board’s website.

The developer wants the approval process to be fast and completed this year, and aims to complete the first phase of the project by 2026 and 2027, said Rebecca Wong, planning director of project planning and development department of the developer.

The ownership of agricultural land in the New Territories is extremely fragmented, said the developer. It called on the government to adopt a more flexible approach in the future to facilitate more land planning adjustment projects and make better use of land resources.

Hongkong Land Leases 3 Central Office Floors to White & Case

Hongkong Land has welcomed a former tenant back to its Central office portfolio after 15 years, announcing that global law firm White & Case had taken up three floors at York House, the developer’s Grade A office tower at 15 Queen’s Road.

The US-based firm is leasing 25,000 square feet (2,322 square metres) across floors 9, 10 and 16 at York House, said Hongkong Land’s director and head of office and commercial property Neil Anderson.

“We are delighted to welcome White & Case back to our Central portfolio as they look to expand their footprint across Hong Kong and the APAC region,” Anderson said in a company press release. “The firm’s long term commitment to Hongkong Land is testimony to the quality of the buildings and our leadership in serving the legal services community.”

Though the firm leased its new office at an undisclosed price, the move followed a 2.5 percent year-on-year decline in average rents at the developer’s Hong Kong office portfolio to HK$117 per square foot per month in 2021, according to Hongkong Land’s latest annual report. However, compared with open market rents at Central Tower, which White & Case had previously occupied, rental rates at York House are 30 to 40 percent higher, market sources told Mingtiandi.

Down the Road

With the firm’s new office space having opened in April, the district’s biggest landlord is bringing White & Case back to its portfolio from the 1997-completed Central Tower, which is also on Queen’s Road and less than 200 metres (218 yards) from York House.

The move by White & Case boosted the firm’s office size by about 13 percent from its 22,000 square foot space, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The 14-storey York House, about two minutes’ walk from Central MTR station, spans 116,250 square feet of office space atop Hongkong Land’s The Landmark, a shopping mall home to luxury brands like Gucci and Dior. The building is also part of the Landmark complex, which aside from the retail podium consists of two other office buildings, as well as the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Before settling into Central Tower in 2007, White & Case had occupied 17,000 square feet at Gloucester Tower, one of the office buildings in that same complex.

Central Rents Remain Soft

While White & Case has expanded its office space, many companies in Hong Kong have been downsizing in terms of staff numbers and adopting work-from-home arrangements, a surveyor said. Landlords will have to offer competitive rents among other incentives to attract new tenants to take up office space, the surveyor added.

In Central, rents rose 0.7 percent from the preceding three months in the first quarter, a property agency said in a report published last month, though despite the slight improvement from January to March, rents in the key business district have come down 1.6 percent year-on-year.

“Market uncertainties since the start of 2022, including the outbreak of Omicron, geopolitical tensions and stock market volatilities, have disrupted the decision-making process of occupiers, (which slowed) office leasing momentum in the first quarter,” another agent said, who added that overall Grade A office rents saw a 1.3 percent quarter-on-quarter drop in the period.

A surveyor firm expects that office rents in Central to remain soft in the current quarter, the surveyor said, noting that most prime office buildings in the district are held under single ownership and the big landlords are unlikely to reduce the rents as much as those of strata-titled offices.

“A few tenants may be able to (take advantage) of lower rents and choose to move to Central from decentralised locations, but more tenants will move out or downsize,” the surveyor said, adding that vacancy rates will also remain at a high level throughout the rest of the year.

Home City Slows

In 2021, the value of Hongkong Land’s investment properties in its home city was $26.6 billion, down 5 percent from the year before, due to lower open market rents.

However, the lower leasing rates in Hong Kong may have helped the developer attract more tenants, with vacancy in the Central office portfolio improving to 4.9 percent at the end of last year from 5.9 percent at the end of 2020.

34 developers show interest in rare Sai Ying Pun site: URA


The Urban Renewal Authority has received 34 expressions of interest from major local and some mainland developers for the Sung Hing Lane/Kwai Heung Street Development Project in Sai Ying Pun, a rarely available development site on the Hong Kong island.

Henderson Land Development (0012), Far East Consortium International (0035), Emperor International (0163), China Overseas Land & Investment (0688) and Poly Property (0119), were said to be among the developers who expressed their interest.

The project, which covers a site area of 1,077.3 square meters, was valued from HK$1.26 billion to HK$1.6 billion, or from HK$13,500 to HK$17,000 per sq ft. Upon completion, it is planned to provide a total gross floor area of about 8,804 sq m.

A tender review panel will shortlist the qualified developers from the submissions, taking into consideration their development experience and financial capability to undertake the development, and they will be invited to submit tenders, the URA said in a statement yesterday.

Through better site planning and design, the redevelopment aims to enhance the connectivity to the adjoining children's playground while improving the existing pedestrian access from Des Voeux Road West and Kwai Heung Street, the statement said.

In the primary market, Wheelock Properties said sales of 119 homes at Monaco Marine in Kai Tak will take place on Friday.

On sale are 117 homes on price lists including 29 one-bedroom units, 66 two-bedroom units, 22 units with three bedrooms, and two penthouses that will be sold via tender.

Managing director Ricky Wong Kwong-yiu said over 100 homes in the low-rise apartment buildings will be put up for sale after the opening of the East Rail Line cross-harbor extension on Sunday.

The extended railway will boost Kai Tak's property prices by 5 to 10 percent and the developer has raked in over HK$5.65 billion after selling 392 homes this year, Wong added.

In Ho Man Tin, Kerry Properties (0683) has unveiled the second price list with 30 homes for 10 LaSalle.

Together with the first batch, 60 flats will be put on the market on Saturday and Kerry has received nearly 500 checks for the flats, making them 7 times oversubscribed.

In Tai Kok Tsui, the third batch with 62 flats at The Quinn Square Mile was revealed by Henderson.

In Kowloon City, Country Garden (2007) said it may unveil the first batch of Allegro today, offering around 50 units, and the sales may take place next week at the earliest.

永倫申強拍灣仔金鐘大廈 集86.67%業權 全幢乙級商廈估值8.4億

港島區地皮新供應罕有,永倫集團及有關人士頻瞄準具潛力項目,最新向土地審裁處提出申請強拍灣仔金鐘大廈,目前持有逾86%業權,僅餘下3個單位並未成功收購,市場就全幢估值8.4億。

據土地審裁處文件顯示,上述項目位於灣仔謝斐道52至58號,鄰近中國恆大中心萬通保險大廈,目前永倫集團及有關人士持有約86.67%業權,餘下3個單位未成功收購,包括2個地鋪、地下入口大堂 (Entrance Hall) 及1樓單位,市場估值約1391萬至7292萬;其中地下入口大堂及1樓單位被視為1份業權,地下入口大堂市場估值約1304萬,1樓估值約5988萬,合共估值約7292萬,市場對全幢估值為8.4251億。

尚餘3單位未收購

永倫申強拍該廈,市場人士甚關注,消息指,永倫早於創辦人倫志炎在生時,頻購入該廈單位收租,近年則見於2018年增購單位,相信趁商廈及鋪位低迷時,有意齊集業權重建,其「收樓」做法,並非像一般收樓公司,短時間內收購大量業權。本報昨日就該廈申強拍聯絡倫耀基,他則回應指,就未來發展,暫未有甚麼計畫。

佔地面積4509方呎

金鐘大廈1967年落成,樓齡約55年,地盤面積4509方呎,坐落於「商業」用途地帶,若以地積比15作重建發展計,可建總樓面約67635方呎。該廈位處港鐵金鐘及灣仔之間,前往港鐵站步程需時7至10分鐘。

有代理則表示,金鐘大廈屬於乙廈,內櫳殘舊,不過,位置非常好,位處謝斐道及分域街單邊,目前樓高只有17層,日後若重建,部分單位望開揚海景。現時租客主要為小形貿易會計師樓,以及中小企,鍾情租金低廉。

根據代理資料,該廈一個單位,建築面積約2038方呎,望城市景,意向呎租26元。

永倫集團積極併購舊樓,去年循強拍途徑以底價14.5億,統一銅鑼灣景隆街20至28號新安大廈舊樓業權,地盤面積約5388方呎,規劃在「商業 (1)」地帶上,地積比15倍,可建總樓面8.1萬方呎。

市建西營盤項目截收34份意向 地皮估值最多16億 發展商取態積極

市區重建局相隔逾5年,再有港島區住宅發展項目推出。該項目位於西營盤崇慶里/桂香街,昨日截收意向,合共接獲34份意向書。除大型發展商之外,亦吸引眾多中小型發展商,數量符合市場預期。

市建局表示,該局董事會設立的遴選小組,將會按照訂定的入圍準則,就發展商的項目發展經驗和財政能力,從收到的意向書中,挑選符合資格的發展商,並將根據董事會已批准的主要招標條款,邀請入圍的發展商,提交合作發展標書。

據現場所見及綜合市場消息,多家本地大型和中型發展商都有遞交意向書,包括新地、信和、恒基、會德豐地產、華懋、英皇、中國海外、資本策略、保利、遠東發展、其士、泛海、爪哇及鷹君,另有多家不知名財團。

其士:擬獨資發展

英皇國際物業經理蔡宏基表示,項目位於港島西營盤,鄰近港鐵站,屬罕有市區住宅地供應,地盤面積適中,加上集團在同區有多個發展項目,料能產生協同效應,因此遞交意向書,希望取得標書作詳細研究。項目料能提供百多伙中小型單位,此類住宅向來有龐大剛性需求,預期能於2026、2027年左右落成,距離現時有約5年發展周期,因此不擔心美國加息周期及疫情影響。

其士國際物業發展部高級銷售及市場主任梁達鈞表示,這是市建局2017年後,首個推出的港島住宅發展項目,位於香港核心地區,而且接近港鐵站,因此有興趣獨資發展,留待入標時決定會否發展商住項目,以及單位戶型等細節,會配合政府政策及條款,改善市民居住空間,屆時會考慮加息及疫情等因素。不過,香港有龐大剛性住屋需求,雖然面對加息環境,未來樓市仍會穩健發展。

中小發展商料積極入標

西營盤一帶多年來未有土地供應,上述項目位於崇慶里1至7號、桂香街12至16號及德輔道西216至218號,毗鄰崇慶里兒童遊樂場,距離港鐵西營盤站僅2分鐘步程。

項目地盤呈「L形」,面積約11596方呎,可建總樓面約94766方呎,當中包括約4306方呎商業樓面面積,住宅部分可興建約165伙。據市建局構思,透過該項目的規劃及設計,提升崇慶里兒童遊樂場的可達性,並改善從德輔道西和桂香街通往該項目的現有行人網絡。

資料顯示,上述項目是該局於2017年7月展開,並於2018年5月以每方呎23568元向小業主提出收購價建議,為該局首次提出破2萬的收購價,當時創新高紀錄,其後2019年8月被中西區皇后大道西/賢居里每方呎收購價24051元打破。

住宅呎價或達3.5

有測量師認為,項目有三十多間發展商遞交意向書,符合預期,若連同建築費在內,料發展成本20億至22億,規模適中,預料中小型發展商會積極入標,估計將來可接獲約12份標書。綜合市場估值,上述地皮估值介乎約14.7億至16.1億,每方呎樓面地價約15500至17000元。

另一測量師指,意向書數量與以往同類項目相若,參考周邊新盤呎價達3萬至3.5萬,預計項目落成後單位呎價約3.3萬至3.5萬。

會展站將啟用 料帶動灣仔北商廈租售

東鐵綫過海段即將通車,業界預期新增的會展站,可望帶動灣仔北一帶寫字樓租金及售價企穩。同時亦因過海方便,較低水的尖東及紅磡商廈可望受惠。有財團亦因通車在即,推售灣仔謝斐道商廈樓花。

東鐵綫過海段於5月15日正式通車,當中新增位於灣仔北的會展站。向來灣仔北為商業地段,通車後交通更便利,商業氣氛可望提升。目前灣仔北的甲廈,價格指標主要為會展廣場辦公大樓,其次為海港中心鷹君中心等,租售均相當穩定。

據代理行資料顯示,4月份疫情緩和後,整體寫字樓買賣及租務均按月上升,其中灣仔商廈買賣錄8宗,按月升1倍;租務涉49宗,亦按月升約17%。

該行代理指,近兩年商廈市場受多項因素影響,甲廈買賣及租務甚淡靜,而東鐵綫過海段通車,未必立即大幅帶動投資氣氛轉熾熱,不過當交通轉便利後,對灣仔北商廈仍是正面消息。該代理指出,灣仔北商廈租售價一向頗硬淨,如會展廣場辦公大樓每呎叫價約4萬元,而灣仔海港中心亦高見3萬元,造價不比金鐘及中環低。會展站正式啟用後,該區商廈租售價可望進一步穩定。

過海方便 尖東紅磡商廈可受惠

另外,該代理亦指,東鐵綫過海段通車,灣仔會展站前往紅磡僅一站距離,尖東、紅磡商廈向來較低水,可吸引機構搬遷,故此可留意該地段商廈。

有財團睇好通車在即,趁機推出商廈新盤發售。宏基資本 (02288) 旗下灣仔商廈新盤「Novo Jaffe」近日推出,物業位於灣仔謝斐道218號,樓高27層,3至30樓為寫字樓用途,每層面積約2,243平方呎,部分樓層將分間細單位,面積約469至550平方呎起。項目共58伙,呎價約1.8萬元起,預計入場費約800餘萬元。消息稱,項目中低層全層已獲預留。另外,外資基金凱龍瑞旗下灣仔軒尼詩道重建項目Hennessy 333,亦準備於短期內推出。

加快收購 銅鑼灣9項目增265萬呎樓面

銅鑼灣一帶近年收購重建加快,連同去年批出的加路連山道商業地王,區內9個項目合共將提供近逾265萬平方呎,包括新世界 (00017) 或相關人士收購的利園山道大型重建項目,將提供約30萬平方呎樓面。

銅鑼灣屬於發展成熟的商業零售區域,區內新供應的商業地皮罕有,去年推出的加路連山道商業地,已經是近20年、30年來區內唯一商業用地供應,故此不少區內新建商廈,均屬於舊樓併購重建而成,亦推動銅鑼灣由商住混合社區,走向以商業為主的社區。

目前銅鑼灣區內至少有9個商業項目,合共提供逾265萬平方呎樓面,除了加路連山道商業地外,其餘8個均屬舊樓或者酒店項目重建,大部份更由舊樓併購而成。

利園山道重建 料作綜合發展

當中利園山道5至27號、波斯富街54至76號,以及羅素街60號的舊樓群,由於位處軒尼詩道電車路,跟羅素街、時代廣場兩大零售區域之間必經之路,零售價值高,早在近10年前已經獲財團展開收購,並有多批投資者、發展商「落釘」形成收購戰。

經過多年時間,去年新世界或相關人士成功以約12.8億元,收購利園山道23、25號 (部分)、波斯富街72號及波斯富街74號 (前段) 的4間地舖及16個住宅單位,相當於該廈所屬地段的逾20%業權,成功增持至8成業權,有望透過強拍申請統一業權。

按照該利園山道、波斯富街舊樓群目前佔地約2萬平方呎,現時已經屬於「商業」規劃用途,若果以最高地積比率15倍發展,可建樓面將達30萬平方呎,預計將會較適合作銀座式商廈,或者基座為商場、樓上為寫字樓的綜合式商廈發展。

加路連山地王 改劃3幢商廈

區內最矚目的加路連山道商業項目,則由希慎夥拍華懋以約197.78億元投得,每平方呎樓面地價逾1.8萬元,將會興建3幢16至24層高商廈,總樓面109.79萬方呎。

銅鑼灣街舖租值 按季跌4.5%

疫情未過去,零售市場疲弱,拖累核心區商舖市道。據戴德梁行指,今年首季核心區街舖租賃按季跌約3%,特別以銅鑼灣按季下跌約4.5%最差,不過該行指出商舖市道料已見底。

據一間外資代理行指出,在今年首季第5波疫情期間,核心零售地區首季商舖租金下滑,銅鑼灣表現最差,按季下跌4.5%,平均呎租跌至約793元,另外3個核心地區包括尖沙咀、中環及旺角,租金按季下跌約2.7至3%,跌幅較為溫和,呎租報約322至873元。

四大零售區空置率高企

至於空置率方面,四大零售核心區空置率持續高企,情況最惡劣為旺角,而銅鑼灣則錄得10.5%,部分業主寧將舖位空置,靜待好租戶,亦有傾向以2至3年租期,租予實力商戶,亦有短租予口罩及防疫用品店。

事實上,根據差估署數據指出,曾屬全球最貴街道的銅鑼灣羅素街多個商舖租值下跌。當中羅素街2至4號2000年廣場地下至3樓,面積逾1.5萬平方呎的巨舖,以往曾由意大利高級品牌PRADA以月租約900萬元承租。該舖在2022/23年度應課差餉租值為3,468萬元,按年下跌21%,相較高峰期更大跌52%。另外,呎租曾貴絕本港、位於銅鑼灣景隆街2號地下A2號約50平方呎迷你舖,新一年度應課差餉租值為60萬元,較本年度的租值99.6萬元跌4成,與高位2015/16年度租值300萬元比較,更回落80%。

「變形金剛」餐廳 月租100萬進駐羅素街

奢侈品牌Burberry退租 新租金跌5成

特色餐飲趁租平進駐核心區一綫地段,銅鑼灣羅素街前Burberry兩層5千呎舖,獲餐飲集團以100萬元租用,較舊租跌半,將開設「變形金剛」主題餐廳,為十多年來首宗餐飲進駐羅素街地舖個案。

較早前英國名牌Burberry決定放棄續租銅鑼灣羅素街金朝陽中心旗艦店,並於年初正式遷出,舖位獲新租客以約100萬元預租。近日該舖位外牆掛起新租客廣告,獲餐飲集團承租,開設以動畫「變形金剛」為主題的餐廳,為本港首間。據了解,早在去年尾,愛訊集團全資擁有的餐飲業務附屬機構A La Carte,宣布正式和孩之寶簽訂合作,共同發展其變形金剛品牌,並於亞洲地區之主要城市聯手打造全新高科技、充滿動感的變形金剛餐飲概念店。

涉兩層複式舖位 設零售區

據了解,由於舖位面積大,店內除了有餐飲外,更有零售區售賣變形金剛玩具及紀念品等。由於變形金剛的動畫及電影大受歡迎,料餐廳今年開幕可吸引大批粉絲前來。

翻查資料,銅鑼灣羅素街金朝陽中心地下A、B舖至1樓複式舖位,面積合共5,200平方呎,逾10年前內地客訪港消費高峰期,Burberry以每月約770萬元租用舖位,租金較前租客 (手機品牌) 高2.5倍。品牌於2015年以880萬元續租,其後租金回落,估計Burberry最後每月租金約200萬元水平。如今餐飲集團以約100萬元租用,較舊租平一半,較高峰期更跌近9成。

銅鑼灣羅素街為全球最貴舖租地段,過去極少有餐飲租舖,如今屬十多年來首宗羅素街地舖由餐飲業租用。事實上,近兩年爆發疫情,因封關下零旅客,多個品牌減成本遷出羅素街,導致吉舖處處,租金明顯下挫,餐飲亦趁此時租用地段樓上舖;包括羅素街8號1樓舖,面積約6,700平方呎,原由化粧品店租用,去年獲漢堡店FIVE GUYS以50萬元租用,租金平約58%。

全球最貴地段 少有餐飲租地舖

除此之外,同區優質地舖亦獲餐飲租用,銅鑼灣啟超道16號地下至2樓,面積約3,400平方呎,獲人氣麵包店Bakehouse租用,現正進行裝修,月租約30萬元,較前租客太子珠寶鐘錶月租跌近8成。

Construction of New World Development's 888 Lai Chi Kok Road project completed


New World Development (0017) announced on Wednesday that the construction of its Grade A commercial building at 888 Lai Chi Kok Road in Cheung Sha Wan has officially finished with about 75 percent of gross floor area sold already. 

The developer successfully obtained the Certificate of Compliance issued by the Lands Department today, meaning the building is set to become the first new Grade A commercial complex in the district. 

According to New World, the sold 75 percent of gross floor area is split halves among financial and insurance companies and education institutes, bringing in more than HK$5.4 billion for the developer. 

They include Nanyang Commercial Bank, listed technology company PC Partner Ltd (1263), and the School of Professional and Continuing Education, The University of Hong Kong. 

The 28-story building is designed by P&T Architects with about 580,000 square foot of office area as well as 241 private and 70 public parking spaces. 

This project is among the three land plots in West Kowloon tendered by New World back in 2017. The other two are the projects on King Lam Street and on Wing Hong Street. 

The constructions of the King Lam Street project and the Wing Hong Street project are expected to be finished by next year and 2024 respectively, paving way for West Kowloon's new core business district. 

All three commercial buildings -- an investment project worth over HK$20 billion -- can provide up to 2 million square foot of gross floor area, New World added.

Two hotels change hands as Covid roils Peninsula

Two hotels in Hong Kong changed hands as The Peninsula Hong Kong posted its lowest occupancy rate since the Sars outbreak in 2003 of 9 percent in the first quarter.

Magnificent Hotel Investments (0201) said it plans to acquire The Bay Bridge Lifestyle Retreat Hotel for HK$1.42 billion from Lafayette Hotel, owned by the late "shop king" Tang Shing-bor's family.

The 16-story hotel is located at Castle Peak Road in Tsuen Wan and has 435 guest rooms, a restaurant, swimming pool and gym.

Tang's family, which purchased the hotel for HK$1.68 billion in 2017, would suffer a loss of around HK$260 million, or 15 percent of its value, after holding it for 5 years.

Rental accommodation provider Weave Living meanwhile, entered into an agreement with Magnificent Hotel to buy its Grand City Hotel in Sai Ying Pun for HK$900 million.

This came as The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels (0045) said the occupancy rate at the Peninsula Hong Kong was 9 percent in the first quarter amid the worst Covid outbreak in the city.

Revenue per available room in the city in the first three months also plunged by 52 percent year-on-year, or 71 percent quarter-on-quarter to HK$380.

Average room rate, however, soared by 56 percent from a year ago to HK$4,127.

CK Asset Sells Mid-Levels Luxury Homes for $50M as High-End Market Hangs On

Two units on a high-level floor at CK Asset’s Mid-Levels luxury project sold last week for a combined HK$393.9 million ($50.1 million), showing the resilience of Hong Kong’s high-end housing market amid the COVID-led economic slowdown.

Hong Kong’s second-largest developer by market capitalisation on Friday sold Unit 6 on the 21st floor of 21 Borrett Road’s 26-storey tower for HK$190.1 million, reflecting a sale price of HK$87,648 per square foot, according to public records posted by the developer. Unit 7, an adjacent apartment on the same floor, sold that day for HK$203.8 million, equivalent to a per-square-foot price of HK$88,034.

The price tag for both homes was in line with previous sales on floors 16, 18 and 22 of the property from mid-2021 through January this year, a surveyor said, who noted that the latest transactions were for high-zone units in the residential tower.

The developer has sold 32 units at the first phase of the project since February of last year, according to research from a property agency. Excluding three transactions on the 23rd floor of the project — for which unit rates ran from HK$126,000 to HK$136,000 per square foot — the price for homes at 21 Borrett Road averaged HK$79,132 per square foot, the agency said.

Borrett Road Slowdown

The four-bedroom units that sold this month to undisclosed buyers are part of 21 Borrett Road’s first phase, comprising 115 units across three residential towers. With Unit 6 spanning 2,169 square feet (202 square metres) and the adjacent Unit 7 covering a saleable area of 2,316 square feet, the two apartments could be combined to create a super-sized luxury home, another surveyor said.

Last week’s deals followed a lull in sales at the Mid-Levels project in the first quarter, when only two transactions totalling HK$334.6 million were recorded during the entire period.

This was a drop from 2021, when CK Asset had recorded three transactions in the first quarter alone, despite sales having begun just in February that year. The first of the three was a 3,378 square foot unit in a different building at the project that sold for HK$459 million, translating to HK$136,000 per square foot and breaking the record for Asia’s priciest apartment at the time.

With social distancing restrictions having begun to relax on 21 April, in-person home viewings have also resumed to normal, according to a property agent.

“It is encouraging to see two units at 21 Borrett Road transacted at the right price only on the second weekend since viewing activity resumed,” the agent said.

Luxury Sales Slide

Sales in the luxury residential sector have been thin since the beginning of the year due to the fifth wave of COVID-19, the agent said.

Hong Kong’s latest outbreak led to dampened economic activity during the first three months of 2022, according to another agent, who said activity in the luxury residential sector “was no different”.

“According to the Land Registry, the number of sale and purchase agreements dropped from 1,213 cases in 2021 to 646 cases in 2022 during (January to April) for luxury residential properties with a consideration higher than HK$20 million,” the agent said.

Before Hong Kong was hit by its fifth COVID wave, luxury deals were still breaking records at the start of the year. In January, a unit on Victoria Peak at the Mount Nicholson project, developed by Wheelock Properties and Nan Fung Development, sold for HK$583.2 million to an unnamed buyer, making it the second most expensive home ever sold in Asia on a price per square foot basis.

With Hong Kong battling the fifth wave of the pandemic and amid growing geopolitical tensions, however, luxury home prices in the city slid as much as 2.7 percent in the first quarter, according to the agency.

Despite the current headwinds, with buyers from outside Hong Kong facing hurdles to luxury property purchases, two types of buyers continue to support demand in the high-end residential market: local high-net-worth individuals and wealthy mainland-born new Hongkongers who live in the city, another agent said.

“With the anticipated border opening between Hong Kong and China, it is possible that more mainland buyers would purchase luxury homes in Hong Kong, resulting in a slight rebound in the luxury housing market this year,” the agent said.

華大酒店等購汀蘭居 鄧成波家族14.2億沽貨

疫市下依然錄得多宗大手成交,本報早前率先披露,「鋪王」鄧成波家族沽售深井服務式住宅汀蘭居全幢,作價14.2億,持貨5年帳面蝕讓2.6億,買家身分終於曝光,為恒基四叔李兆基女婿、華大酒店主席兼執行董事鄭啟文旗下公司。

持貨5年帳面蝕2.6

華大酒店、順豪物業投資及順豪控股聯合公布,以約14.2億購入深井汀蘭居,物業樓高16層,總樓面約21.6萬方呎,呎價約6564元,該物業提供436間房間,每個房間售價約325萬。

公布指出,收購汀蘭居可擴充其現有酒店管理服務及酒店管理組合,以增加收入來源及提升盈利能力的良機。此外,該物業於去年底估值為24.6億,交易完成日期為今年10月10日。

每房間售價325

資料顯示,鄧成波家族於2017年以約16.8億購入上述物業,於兩年前推出市場放售,當時意向價高達23.8億,故最新成交價較意向價低約4成,持貨5年帳面蝕讓約2.6億,物業期間貶值約15%。

市場早前流傳鄧成波家族放售的一籃子物業清單,包括住宅、工廈、商鋪等物業,共涉30項,合共意向價高達70億,當中較矚目物業為九龍城蔚盈軒全幢,以約18億放售,較去年意向價低約1成,以總樓面66428呎計,呎價約2.7萬。

西環華麗都會酒店9億易手 WeaveLiving夥美資基金向華大購入

全幢酒店於疫市下「異軍突起」,租務品牌Weave Living繼上月購入九龍珀麗酒店後,最新夥拍一家美資基金,購入華大旗下西環華麗都會酒店全幢,作價9億元,每間房間售價約420萬,該租務品牌於兩個月內連環購入兩全幢酒店項目,涉資約22.75億。

租務品牌Weave Living昨日宣布,夥拍美資基金安祖高頓 (Angelo Gordon),以9億購入西環皇后大道西338至346號華麗都會酒店全幢,以項目總樓面約60150方呎計,呎價約14960元。該酒店提供214間房間,每間房間售價約420萬。

涉214間房間

Weave Living創辦人兼集團行政總裁Sachin Doshi稱,購入該物業後將會全面翻新,打造成靈活的住宿空間,料於明年第三季開業,成為集團旗下港島區第3個項目。

連購2酒店涉逾22

有代理指,全幢酒店的升值潛力高,加上市場上全幢物業的供應短缺,因此受實力投資者追捧。

新業主將酒店改裝成共居空間,並會提供靈活的租賃條款、多元化設施等,因此預計以共居空間營運,可以為新業主帶來穩定和可觀的租金收入。

Weave Living於疫市下大舉擴充,上月以初以合營企業形式,購入德祥地產旗下大角嘴九龍珀麗酒店,作價13.75億,短短兩個月內,該租務品牌連環購入兩幢酒店項目,涉資約22.75億。

事實上,該租務品牌向來鍾情市區酒店,本報於上月底率先披露,華大旗下北角華美達盛景酒店亦獲準買家積極洽購,涉資約11億,料於短期易手,並以Weave Living呼聲最高,當時本報向該集團負責人查詢,惟回覆指集團不打算增購任何物業。

聯興工廠大廈85%業權放售 意向價5.5億

活化工廈政策推動下,傳統工業區面臨變天,當中長沙灣吸引不少中外企業進駐,進一步轉型為西九龍新商貿區。新近有業主看好長沙灣發展前景,遂將長沙灣聯興工廠大廈一籃子物業推出市場放售,該批物業佔高達近85%業權,意向價約5.5億元。

有代理表示,項目位於長沙灣瓊林街109號聯興工廠大廈一籃子物業,共佔約84.8%業權份數,意向價約5.5億元,以現狀及連現有租約出售。

項目現為一幢樓高10層之工業大廈,地盤面積約8800方呎,被劃作其他指定用途註明「商貿」及「政府、機構或社區」用途。物業於2021年獲城規會批准放寬地積比率限制,並增至14.4倍以作准許的非污染工業用途發展,可建樓面面積約約12.672萬方呎。

該代理指,今番放售物業位處興旺地段,與鄰近第一集團新落成的環球商貿廣場三期可產生協同效應,加上所佔業權份數高,強拍阻力少,料獲發展商及投資者垂青。

Wheelock plans 3,000 Tai Po homes in land sharing pilot


The Development Bureau said it has received an application under the land sharing pilot scheme from Wheelock Properties to build a total of 3,000 private and public homes on a site in Tai Po.

The site, located to the south of She Shan Road, covers about 5.2 hectares of private and government land, the bureau said.

The application involves about 2,100 public housing units and 900 private housing flats and supporting facilities, with a total gross floor area of about 159,000 square meters.

Wheelock Properties chairman Stewart Leung Chi-Kin said the developer hopes to make good use of the lands it owns in the New Territories and alleviate the housing supply problem in the short-to-medium term.

This application came as Hong Kong's overall stamp duty revenues from property deals last month sank by 15 percent month-on-month to a record low of HK$422.4 million.

The number of transactions edged up by 1.6 percent to 255, the data from the Inland Revenue Department showed.

Buyer's stamp duty revenue more than halved month-on-month to HK$99 million and the number of transactions also slipped by 34 percent to 52.

In contrast, special stamp duty revenue jumped 1.37 times to HK$32.9 million, and the double stamp duty revenues also rose 5.8 percent to HK$290.5 million.

In the primary market, the sales brochure of The Grand Mayfair II in Yuen Long has been released. The project provides 805 flats ranging from 351 sq ft to 977 sq ft.

In Ho Man Tin, Kerry Properties (0683) has received over 900 checks for the 60 homes at 10 LaSalle that will kick off sales Saturday.

會展站將啟用 財團趁機推灣仔商廈新盤

港鐵東鐵綫過海段快通車,灣仔一帶交通轉便利,料區內商廈租售向好,而財團亦趁灣仔有新港鐵站帶動,推售商廈新盤。

東鐵綫過海段5月15日正式通車,更新增灣仔會展站,而前往紅磡更是一站之距,交通轉便利,可望帶動灣仔一帶商廈租務及買賣。

據代理行資料顯示,4月份整體商廈買賣錄66宗,較3月份41宗,上升61%,相信主因疫情緩和,投資氣氛轉好,當中灣仔商廈錄8宗成交,按月升1倍,亦為近半年多以來新高。租務方面,4月份灣仔錄49宗租務成交,亦較3月份42宗升17%。

Novo Jaffe 發售中 呎價約1.8萬起

灣仔商廈料向好,財團亦趁疫情緩和加上東鐵過海段通車,推售灣仔商廈新盤。其中宏基資本 (02288) 旗下灣仔商廈新盤 Novo Jaffe 近日推出,物業位於灣仔謝斐道218號,樓高27層,3至30樓為寫字樓用途,每層面積約2,243平方呎,部分樓層將分間細單位,面積約469至550平方呎起。項目共58伙,呎價約1.8萬元起,預計入場費約800餘萬元。消息稱,項目其中一層全層已獲預留。

翻查資料,宏基資本數年以積極收購灣仔謝斐道216至222號的謝斐大樓,為8層高物業,地下為商舖,1至7樓為住宅,涉及4個商舖及42個住宅。項目地盤面積3,267平方呎,其後財團收購至尾聲,並以2.28億元購入謝斐大樓3個地舖,總面積約2,185平方呎,呎價約10.4萬元,並成功統一該廈業權。

凱龍瑞333 Hennessy 一梯兩伙設計

另一項商廈項目為軒尼詩道333號333 Hennessy,項目樓高21層,共設41伙,主要為一梯兩伙設計,面積介乎471至1,727餘平方呎,每層樓面大細不一,如6至9樓,每層兩單位面積分別為872及873平方呎,而11至15樓,每層兩單位分別為753及752平方呎,而16及20樓為特式單位,設有平台。由於項目位於軒尼詩道,屬灣仔主要幹道,物業適合作半零售用途。翻查資料,物業原為舊樓軒轅大廈,物業於1979年落成,屬一梯兩伙商住大樓,原由投資者林子峰持有。2017年,凱龍瑞基金斥3.2億元購入地盤,每呎樓面地價約8,421元。

分析指,疫情下近兩年商廈投資氣氛欠佳,呎價及租金明顯下跌,而近月商廈價租售回穩,預計投資氣氛轉好後,商廈價亦相對穩定,而此時東鐵綫過海段通車,為灣仔及金鐘等傳統商業區注入新元素,交通更為便利,特別灣仔區新設會展站,預計灣仔商廈租售價今年平穩向好。

4月工商舖357買賣 金額升3成

有代理行資料統計顯示,4月份市場共錄得約357宗工商舖買賣成交,較3月份輕微上升約0.85%,反映買家對工商舖物業投資信心趨穩。

根據該行資料,4月份市場共錄得約357宗工商舖買賣成交,按月輕微上升約0.85%,對比去年4月同期則下跌約49.07%,涉及總成交金額則呈增長趨勢,4月份共錄得約91.93億元,較3月份上升約29.81%,按年則遞減約29.15%,反映4月份大額成交較多。同時,4月份市場共錄得約13宗逾億元成交,當中涉及工廈成交較多,其中最大額成交為葵涌貨櫃碼頭路43號集運中心全幢買賣成交,成交價約28億元。

寫字樓53宗交投 按月升6

按類別分析,寫字樓成交宗數表現最見突出,涉及成交宗數錄得約53宗,按月大升約60.61%,帶動總金額急升至約7.64億元,對比3月份倍增約76.5%;而舖位買賣宗數亦同樣攀升約19.10%,共錄得約106宗,而涉及總成交金額約27.48億元,較3月份下跌約27.34%。至於工廈方面,則出現量跌價升情況,4月份買賣宗數回落至不足200宗,僅錄得約198宗,按月減少約14.6%,而涉及的金額則因有3宗逾億元成交而推動至56.81億元,對比上月明顯大幅抽升約98.1%。

該行代理分析,今年第1季工商舖市況遇上第5波疫情爆發而陷入停擺狀況,然而踏入4月份疫情見緩和,工商舖入市氣氛亦同步轉好,不少投資者及用家加快入市步伐,個別業主亦見有反價情況。再者,華懋剛以約27.78億元奪東涌商業地皮,亦反映發展商對經濟前景感樂觀,加上東鐵綫過海段即將通車,利好灣仔及金鐘等港島核心區商廈投資價值,更推動寫字樓需求上升。同時,社交距離措施進一步放寬及受惠於消費券效應,人流已見增多,市民所積存的購買力助零售及飲食業生意額急升。在多種利好因素下,投資者及用家陸續於工商舖市場湧現,相信在大額買賣交投帶動下,工商舖物業交投量在5月及6月份會持續上揚,價格亦會拾級而上。

娛樂行地鋪每呎208元跌77% 星資時裝進駐 中環租金重返沙士時

疫情持續放緩,帶動鋪市租賃轉活,零售品牌亦趁勢搶租核心區一綫地段。中環皇后大道中娛樂行地鋪,新獲新加坡時裝品牌以約50萬租用,呎租約208.3元,較上一手長租租金急挫逾7成,租金亦重返沙士時水平。

核心區一綫街道租金跌勢未止。就本報記者於中環皇后大道中現場所見,皇后大道中30號娛樂行地下D鋪,鋪面向雲咸街,近日已上圍版,新獲時裝品牌Love Bonito租用,將於7月開幕。

LoveBonito每月50萬承租

該鋪位屬「賭王」四太梁安琪的旗艦收租物業,位處中環最核心地段,人流量極高,昔日為各大商戶「兵家必爭之地」,該鋪於2015年初獲名車品牌平治 (Mercedes-Benz) 以約450萬租用上址及毗鄰C號鋪,當時打通兩鋪位,用作陳列室及概念餐廳,當時於市場上相當矚目,以鋪位總樓面約4800方呎計,呎租高達938元,惟於2017年底結業遷出,故最新租金較上一手長租急挫約77%。

本港零售市道及後急走下坡,該鋪於平治撤出後,該鋪曾交吉達3年,至去年初獲糖果店Sweet Dreams by Heinemann短租一年,月租僅約40萬,惟於今年初於租約屆滿已遷出。

鋪位曾交吉達三年

據地產代理指出,上述鋪位最新市值租金約50萬,呎租約208.3元,故較上一手長租急挫約77%,令市場感到嘩然,租金亦重返當年「沙士」水平;然而,儘管該鋪租金大幅「縮水」,惟屬貼近大市水平,資料顯示,娛樂行地下A及B鋪,於2020年底獲東方表行以約50萬租用,呎租約482元,較舊租金95萬下跌約47%。

Love Bonito是亞太區內大型女裝品牌之一,該品牌於兩年前在中環H Queen's開設限定店大受歡迎,並推出網站推售旗下服飾,料趁勢搶租核心區一綫地段,以擴充本地業務發展。

泛海大廈地鋪每呎50元租出

另一方面,皇后大道中亦錄另一承租個案,消息指,該街道59至65號泛海大廈地下6A至G號鋪,建築面積約1794方呎,以約9萬元租出,平均呎租約50.1元,與該鋪舊租金相若。

City's office deals point upward


The number of office leasing deals surged to a nearly five-month high last month, a property agency said, a sign that the economy is on a path to recovery.

The transaction number in the top 50 Grade-A office buildings also rebounded to nine, the level last seen in January when the epidemic was more stable, the agency said.

Although trading in offices has become more active, rental and sales prices are still low, agent said.

The transaction prices of Grade-A offices edged down 0.1 percent month-on-month in April, and the rents also fell slightly by 0.3 percent, the agent said.

In the core areas of Hong Kong Island, such as Admiralty and Central, landlords of Grade-A office buildings have to reduce their asking prices to attract tenants, the agent noted, adding that rents in some transactions, including Three Pacific Place and The Center, were 10 percent to 30 percent lower than several years ago.

Low prices also dragged down the rent level of the Central District. It fell by 4.3 percent month-on-month in April.

The overall vacancy rate in April was similar to that of March, at 9.5 percent, the agency said. The vacancy rate in East Kowloon remained the highest among all districts, rising to 14.7 percent last month, the highest since November 2021.

The East Rail Line Cross-Harbour Extension, which opened yesterday, is expected to drive up the demand for Grade-A offices at Admiralty and Central, the agent added.

Market bustles as more Yuen Long flats rolled out

The Grand Mayfair II in Yuen Long has released the second price list, offering 138 units at an average price per square foot of HK$18,483 after discounts.

The batch, which comprises 32 one-bedroom units, 70 two-bedroom units, and 36 units with three bedrooms, is priced from HK$6.25 million to HK$15.23 million, or from HK$17,521 to HK$19,900 per sq ft after discounts. The latest batch is around 3.2 percent costlier than the first batch of HK$17,898 per sq ft mainly due to the differences in the views and floors, according to the developers.

The 805-flat project is phase 1B of a 2,200-flat mega development that is being jointly developed by Sino Land (0083), K Wah International (0173) and China Overseas Land and Investment (0688).

Another batch may be launched shortly and the sales could take place within this week, the developers said. They have collected over 2,000 checks for the homes on offer.

In Kowloon City, Country Garden (2007) said it will reveal another batch for its Allegro soon and more than 3,000 prospective buyers have visited the showrooms since last Thursday.

It unveiled the first price list on the same day with the cheapest unit coating a little less than HK$5 million after discounts. The project offers 190 homes from 213 to 414 sq ft.

In Ho Man Tin, Kerry Properties (0683) said it has sold at least 57 flats at 10 LaSalle, or 95 percent of units on the price lists, cashing in over HK$480 million. The completed project provides 73 homes in total.

In Tai Kok Tsui, at least 17 flats - a studio unit, 15 one-bedroom units, and a two-bedroom unit - were sold over the weekend, which brought the developer Henderson Land Development (0012) over HK$106 million in contracted sales.

The builder said it has raked in a total of HK$575 million after selling 87 flats in the project.

The secondary market, however, was in the shadow of the first-hand projects over the weekend.

Only 13 deals were seen in the top ten housing estates, down by 7.1 percent from a week ago to a nine-week low, according to a property agency.

The launches of new projects have drawn property buyers' attention from the second-hand homes, which, coupled with the slow economy, volatile stock market, and interest rate hikes, many prospective buyers now prefer to wait before making a move, property agent said.

金鐘力寶中心呎租47元 跌逾20% 交吉近3年始租出 屬市價水平

隨疫情走勢放緩,帶動甲廈租務交投轉活,惟核心區租金仍備受壓力,金鐘力寶中心一座中層單位於交吉近三年後,以每呎約47元租出,較舊租金挫逾20%,屬市價水平。

核心區甲廈租金急下滑,市場消息指出,金鐘力寶中心一座中層7室,建築面積約1887方呎,新以每呎約47元租出,月租約88689元,據代理指出,該單位上一手每呎租金約60元,惟租戶於2019年7月已遷出,業主隨即以每呎約78元放租,隨着2019年下半年動亂發生,加上緊隨着疫情爆發,甲廈市場冰封,此期間,力寶中心呎租曾跌至每呎33元水平,上址業主一直沒有大幅減價,直至單位丟空多時,業主態度逐漸軟化,至今接近三年,最終以市價租出,較上一手租金下跌約21%,亦反映甲廈於過去三年以來,甲廈租金受負面因素影響,所錄得的跌幅。

每月租金8.86

事實上,近期,該甲廈租金呎租,一直維持40多元水平,資料顯示,一座中層6室,建築面積1570方呎,於上月以每呎約42元租出,略低於市價水平,月租約65940元,較上一手租金每呎53元跌約20%。 去年5月,力寶中心1座高層D室,面積約2343方呎,獲中資企業以每月7.73萬承租,平均呎租約33元,為該甲廈11年以來新低水平。

呎租曾低至33

近年來,力寶中心造價亦低迷,該廈2座低層3室,建築面積約658方呎,於本月以約1513.4萬售出,呎價約2.3萬。

代理指,上址早前以意向呎價約2.8萬放售,惟受疫情等因素影響,市場問盤洽購淡靜,業主逐步擴闊議幅,最終減價至每呎2.3萬售出,減幅約17.8%,若以該甲廈市值呎價約2.5萬計,上址成交價亦低市價約10%。

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。

近期成交呎價2.3

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。

中環金鐘甲廈租賃成交料升

有代理行指出,東鐵綫過海段昨日通車,東鐵綫由紅磡延伸過海至港島,通車後中環及金鐘往來新界時間將大幅縮短,金鐘站將成為四綫匯聚的「超級轉車站」,港島核心商業交通網絡更完善,將帶動中環及金鐘甲廈租賃交投量上升。

代理行:東鐵過海段帶動

此外,隨着疫情回穩,加上政府提早放寬防疫措施,商業活動將陸續恢復,寫字樓買賣及租賃活動會逐步增加。

該行發表的商廈市場報告指出,4月的租務成交量反彈至近五個月高位,而五十大指標甲廈成交量亦回升至1月份疫情較穩定時水平,上月共錄9宗買賣。

最矚目的是資深投資者李栢景以1.92億沽佐敦四海玉器中心全幢。該行代理表示,雖然商廈交投趨活躍,但租售價仍處低位。

(星島日報)

 

甲廈上月租售價微跌

有代理指,上月甲廈售價及租金均錄得輕微下跌,分別按月跌0.1%及0.3%,當中港島核心區如金鐘、中環的甲廈亦要減價吸引租客。

以近期成交的金鐘太古廣場三期及位於中環的中環中心高層單位為例,其租金都較之前低10%至30%。受低價租務個案拖累,中環區的甲廈租金按月挫4.3%,屬跌幅最大的分區。

整體甲廈空置率9.5%

空置率方面,4月的整體甲廈空置率最新為9.5%,與3月份相若。而東九龍的甲廈空置率仍然是各分區中最高,該區空置率上月升至14.7%,更是自2021年11月以來最高。

另外,受惠東鐵綫過海段提早於昨日通車,港島核心商業區一帶交通網絡變得更完善。這將有望帶動中環及金鐘甲級寫字樓的租賃交投量上升。

同時,隨着疫情回穩,加上政府提早放寬防疫措施,商業活動將陸續恢復,該行預計寫字樓買賣及租賃活動會逐步增加。

鄧成波家族沽灣仔商廈 平均每呎造價7760

鄧成波家族疫市連環沽貨,消息指,由該家族持有的灣仔軒尼詩道多按商廈物業,新以約1428萬成交,原業主持貨16年帳面獲利約612萬,物業期間升值約75%。

據地產代理指出,灣仔軒尼詩道310號千居,為商住式物業,該廈1樓寫字樓,建築面積約1840方呎,新以1428萬售出,每呎造價約7760元。

涉資1428萬 16年升值75%

據悉,鄧成波家族早於2006年以約816萬購入上址,惟於2020年起先後兩次向多家財務公司承造按揭,以易手價計,物業於16年期升值約612萬,物業期間升值約75%。

「鋪王」鄧成波於去年離世後,該家族頻頻沽貨,合共套現金額達百億,該家族最新推出一籃子物業放售,合共涉約30項物業,涉及放售金額高達70億。

該家族部分物業售價略有調整,如九龍城蔚盈軒全幢,去年放售價約20億,近日減價至約18億,減幅10%,總樓面66428方呎,呎價約2.7萬,物業月租約200萬,若以最新叫價出售,買家獲回報約1.3厘。

最新放售30億物業

觀塘開源道50號利寶時中心地下1及2號鋪,面積2076呎,放售價由去年1.2億下調至最新的1.02億,呎價4.91萬。 該家族旗下近期較矚目成交,為華大酒店、順豪物業投資及順豪控股以約14.2億購入該家族持有的荃灣汀蘭居,提供436間房間。原業主持貨5年帳面蝕讓約2.6億,貶值約15%。

Investors rush to buy in first-weekend property sales despite biggest base rate rise in 22 years

Kerry Properties sold 57 of its 60 one-bedroom units on offer at the residential project at 10 LaSalle development in Ho Man Tin by Saturday afternoon

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority followed the US Fed with a base rate rise, but mortgage rates remain at about 2 per cent

Investors rushed to get ahead of the rising interest rate cycle by snapping up new flats in a first-weekend property sale after the biggest interest rate rise in 22 years by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) earlier this month.

By 6pm on Saturday, 66 units of the 88 units made available across two separate projects had been bought, according to property agents. The strong demand suggests higher interest rates have not hurt property market sentiment.

Kerry Properties sold 57 of its 60 one-bedroom units on offer at the residential project at 10 LaSalle development in Ho Man Tin. Property agents expect it can sell out most or all by the end of the day.

Offer prices for the units, which are between 319 to 409 sq ft, range from HK$7.38 million (US$940,000) to HK$10.99 million. The average price stood at HK$24,258 per square foot after discounts offered by the developers.

“The increase of the US Fed rate and HKMA base rate is well expected and they are not a surprise to the market. The homebuyers have well prepared to pay more for their mortgage loans in coming years,” a property agent said.

“The strong response to the weekend sales is due to the fact that were almost no new flat sales in the first quarter, while the homebuyers return to the market when developers launch a new project,” the agent added. The agent also noted that investors may believe the political situation has become more stable with the election last Sunday of John Lee as the city’s next chief executive.

Hong Kong’s cost of money soared by the most in 22 years as the city’s de facto central bank followed the US Federal Reserve to increase the base lending rate by 50 basis points to 1.25 per cent. That marked the biggest one-time increase in Fed rates since 2000.

Hong Kong’s base rate is expected to rise to 4 per cent by the end of 2023.

“The property sentiment has not yet changed with the interest rate rise,” another agent said, adding that the commercial mortgage interest rate has not yet risen. Most mortgage rates are now at about 2 per cent.

“Even if the interbank rate or prime lending rate will increase later this year, it is not going to be substantial,” the agent said. “People can still afford to pay their mortgage loans with the expected rate rise. The property outlook for the Hong Kong market remains positive.”

Some homebuyers are rushing to buy now in anticipation of further rate increases, according to a surveyor. “They fear they may not be able to pass the stress test requirement next year and hence will not be able to get a mortgage loan,” the surveyor said.

Hong Kong’s stress test requires all new mortgage borrowers to prove their income is high enough to withstand interest rate increases of up to 3 percentage points from the time of their application.

“Many customers may be able to pass the stress test now amid a low-interest-rate environment, but they may not be able to pass the threshold next year,” the surveyor said. “Developers would also like to launch the projects to sell now before the rate rises. As such, we are going to see a lot more new flat transactions in the coming months.”

The Kerry Properties’ project located at 10 La Salle Road, Kowloon, is a traditional low-density luxury residential area famous for its nearby prestigious schools. The 10 LaSalle is a 17-storey building, providing 73 units in total. The other 12 three-bedroom units and one four-bedroom unit are sold via tender.

Ahead of the sale, 10 LaSalle received 900 registrations from interested buyers, meaning about 15 interested buyers were going after each of the 60 units on offer Saturday.

Separately, Henderson Land sold nine of 28 units on offer by 6pm on Saturday at the residential project The Quinn Square Mile in Tai Kok Tsui. The units are all one-bedroom flats and studios.

The cheapest unit measured 206 sq ft was offered at a price of HK$4.54 million, while the most expensive flat measured 320 sq ft for HK$7.21 million.

The developer had already sold 51 units of The Quinn Square Mile on May 1. The average price after discounts ranged from HK$20,971 to HK$24,353 per square foot.

A property agent said that The Quinn Square Mile units are left over, so the sale would be at a slower pace than other new projects. However, there are still some buyers interested in the project, especially younger ones.

The sale of property has bounced back this month after the fifth wave of Covid-19 subsided in the city. Hong Kong had no new flat sales in February and March, as the outbreak and social distancing measures linked to the city’s caused developers to delay new project launches.

The Quinn Square Mile, with 614 units in total, also featured two-bedroom flats, with the largest measuring 382 sq ft. The first-batch units were earmarked for sale at an average launch price of HK$23,928 per square foot after discounts offered by the developer.

灣仔住宅地估值逾16億

港島區住宅地供應罕有,地政總署昨推出灣仔皇后大道東269號用地招標、即呂祺教育服務中心,為該區自於14年後相隔近8年再有新供應;綜合市場估值約16.96億至18.82億,每方呎樓面地價約14600至16200元。

上述皇后大道東269號住宅地,地盤面積約1.32萬方呎,涉及可建總樓面約11.62萬方呎。該地毗鄰私樓慧賢軒、灣仔分科診所,並面向賽馬會公園,距離港鐵灣仔站約10分鐘步程,附近社區配套設施充足。該地將於下周五 (20日) 招標,並於6月17日截標。

區內相隔8年再推地

灣仔區近年少有住宅地供應,資料顯示,對上一幅批出用地為捷船街住宅地,由合和於2014年6月以2.33億投得,每方呎樓面地價約1.6萬;意味該區相隔近8年再有賣地表地皮供應。事實上,上述用地曾於2018年財政年度納入賣地計畫,其後因司法覆核影響被剔出賣地表,直至近年再度重新納入賣地表內,最新則於來季推出市場招標。

有測量師指出,灣仔區缺乏新盤供應,加上地盤面積細,相信會受發展商歡迎,料屆時可截獲10份標書,落成後單位呎價有望超過3萬。

New World’s affordable housing project aimed at getting first-time buyers in Hong Kong on property ladder


A proposal has been submitted to the Town Planning Board to build about 300 flats, with sizes ranging from 300 sq ft to 400 sq ft in Lam Hi Road, Yuen Long

The project, which is still awaiting government approval, will be sold at cost to buyers who fulfil the eligibility criteria

New World Development plans to build Hong Kong’s first subsidised housing project that will be sold at cost to help young first-time buyers get on the property ladder in the world’s most expensive city to own a home.

New World Build for Good, the developer’s social enterprise unit, earlier this month submitted a proposal to the Town Planning Board to build about 300 flats, with sizes ranging from 300 square feet to 400 square feet, on a 30,300 sq ft site in Lam Hi Road, Yuen Long, according to an announcement on Monday.

It expects construction to start next year if everything goes according to plan, with the project likely to be completed as early as 2027.

“My vision is to start a new era in Hong Kong, by improving people’s housing issues and enabling the next generation to achieve the milestone of home ownership,” said Adrian Cheng, CEO of NWD and chairman of New World Build for Good. “We hope to refresh Hong Kong’s housing model and provide truly affordable homes for those in need.”

The site is about 10 minutes by bus from Yuen Long MTR station.

A NWD spokeswoman said the units will be sold at cost. “We will not make any profit from this project,” she said, without disclosing further details.

In December 2021, the developer said it was planning a project aimed at those living in subdivided flats and second-generation public housing renters.

The eligibility criteria for buyers of the flats in the project includes meeting the maximum income and total assets requirements of Hong Kong’s Home Ownership Scheme (HOS), which are set at HK$33,000 (US$4,230) and HK$925,000, respectively, for individuals, and HK$66,000 and HK$1.85 million for a household of two or more members.

A 300 sq ft flat will cost as low as HK$2.7 million, or HK$9,000 per sq ft, which is based on the discounted land premium under the current HOS scheme plus construction cost.

Buyers will only be required to pay a down payment of HK$135,000, 5 per cent of the unit’s price.

The developer also proposed an innovative home loan scheme to alleviate the financial burden of the targeted buyers. Purchasers only require to pay 50 per cent of the flat’s cost when the flat is due for delivery, while the remaining 50 per cent can be paid 10 years after the occupation in one go or in instalments.

The proposed home financing scheme has received positive response from banks and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, according to the statement issued by New World Build for Good.

“Young families are increasingly finding it difficult to get on the property ladder, and the waiting time for public housing is getting longer,” said the statement.

The average waiting time for a public housing flat in Hong Kong has increased to 6.1 years, the longest since 1998, according to official figures released last Thursday.

Chief Executive-elect John Lee Ka-chiu has proposed an advance allocation scheme under which flats at selected public housing estates could be offered to families on the waiting list before infrastructure and transport facilities are completed. Lee said he hoped to make the projects available a year earlier than expected.

An NWD spokeswoman said the subsidised housing project would occupy half of the site, and the remaining area would continue to be used as an open space for the public and warehouse for storing art.

“NWD has no plan to build a private residential project on the other half of the plot,” she said.

Hong Kong developers’ rural land conversion in New Territories gathers pace, expect to push for lower land premium due to softening market

Sun Hung Kai Properties pays HK$268 million (US$34 million) to convert farmland in Yuen Long into a residential project

Developers with large holdings in the northern New Territories are likely to negotiate for a lower land premium, analysts say

Hong Kong developers are speeding up the conversion of farmland in the northern New Territories for residential use, with industry observers pointing out that companies are likely to push for lower land premiums due to the softening housing market.

Sun Hung Kai Properties, Hong Kong’s largest developer by market value, last week agreed to pay HK$268 million (US$34 million) to convert farmland in Yuen Long so that it can build a 71-villa project.

Seven land-premium transactions, including that of SHKP, totalling HK$3.3 billion have taken place in Yuen Long, Lands Department records show. The seven plots will provide a total gross floor area of 890,000 square feet.

Land premium is the fee that developers pay the government when a modification or change in land use results in a higher land value.

While there is no fixed fee charged for the land conversion premium, the government arrives at the value by taking into account recent transaction prices in both the housing market as well as the land sales market.

“Both housing and land markets actually indicate a declining trend in recent months because of the volatility in the stock market, increase in the unemployment rate and expectations of an interest-rate rise,” a property agent said.

“This puts developers in a relatively strong position to argue for a lower land premium level,” the agent said.

Hong Kong developers have recently turned conservative in bidding for government land following a decline in home prices, which have retreated 4 per cent from their peak last September. Last month, the government withdrew the sale of a 1.3 million sq ft site in Tai Lam in the northern New Territories, which would have yielded an estimated 2,020 homes, after all tender bids came in below the reserve price.

Surveyors had estimated the site, Hong Kong’s first plot earmarked for residential flats with a minimum area of 280 square feet, to fetch between HK$7.1 billion and HK$9 billion, or HK$5,500 to HK$6,900 per square foot in the tender.

“The strategy of many developers, particularly the bigger ones, is to retop their land banks by converting agricultural land into residential use in addition to the government land sales,” the agent said.

The government’s land sale programme for the current financial year ending March 2023 covers 13 residential sites, which will be able to provide 8,000 flats, according to Secretary for Development Michael Wong Wai-lun.

While the government’s projected supply of new flats is up from 6,000 in the last financial year, the supplies are under 10,000 for the fifth consecutive year.

With the northern New Territories the focus of future development in Hong Kong, “developers with large holdings in the area will become more active in negotiating land premiums”, a surveyor said.

Last October, Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor proposed to develop the Northern Metropolis, which includes the northern New Territories, into a booming economic and residential hub for 2.5 million people over the next 20 years. The plans involves construction of up to 926,000 flats, including the existing 390 000 homes in Yuen Long and North districts, to accommodate the residents.

Currently, about 100 million sq ft of rural land is owned by various developers, according to a property agency.

“Now they see an opportunity to turn the land into residential development sites through the land premium settlement scheme,” agent said.

九龍灣高銀金融國際中心將招標 地標甲廈市值百億 接管人委託出售

疫市下大額物業受捧,市場即將有一宗矚目的全幢甲廈放盤,位處九龍灣啟祥道高銀金融國際中心,接管人已委託大型代理行,即將推出標售,全幢物業市值約100億,料吸引投資財團及實力用家角逐。

九龍地標甲廈高銀金融國際中心,早前雖曾獲準買家承接,惟未有如期成交。市場消息透露,該全幢甲廈即將推出標售,樓高28層,總樓面約85.2萬方呎,樓齡約6年,疫情雖持續多時,惟市場上資金尋找出路,料該項目吸引投資財團角逐。

由於項目屬全幢業權,擁有命名權,料有機會吸引實力用家垂青,過去多年來,東九龍屢錄全幢商廈成交,買家包括國內地產商,亦有外資金融機構承接。

高銀金融國際中心位於啟祥道17號,樓高28層,佔地約7.1萬方呎,總樓面約85.2萬方呎,屬地標甲廈項目,價值不菲。根據代理行資料,近月區內指標甲廈成交,包括新落成富臨中心呎價介乎1.4萬至逾1.5萬水平。

料吸投資者及用家

其中,富臨中心B座19樓C至D室,建築面積約3113方呎,以每呎15197元售出,涉資4731萬;而有一定樓齡的億京中心,其中B座28樓A室,建築面積約3939方呎,以每呎11678元成交。

多年來,區內亦屢錄大手成交,其中,億京為首財團,於去年6月向合和實業購入九龍灣國際展貿中心,涉資約105億,並將投資逾180億建地標甲廈;區內地王紀錄,包括南豐於2017年5月底,以逾246億擊敗11間中港財團奪啟德商業地,樓面呎價12,863元。

該幅啟德1F區2號地,鄰近未來沙中綫啟德站,可建樓面達191萬方呎,預計地皮日後約三分一樓面的高層單位可望維港景。

同區甲廈呎價1.5

高銀金融國際中心由高銀金融於2011年,以約34億投得啟祥道商業地,並於2016年落成大廈,作為自用及出租。

惟項目於2020年9月,遭接管人宣布放售,意向價120億,及後,項目錄買家FONG Tim擬以143億購入項目,不過,最終未成事。因此,今番再度推出標售。市場人士指,該廈超豪華,擁有中環「FEEL」,大部分以全層形式出租。

酒店成投資焦點 共居品牌作改裝

投資氣氛明顯轉好,近期市場連環錄得大額酒店成交,成投資焦點,當中以共居品牌成主要買家,購入進行改裝。

第二季大額買賣氣氛轉理想,除了工廈外,酒店為另一項投資焦點,更連環錄大手成交。華大酒店 (00201)、順豪物業投資、順豪控股近日公布,以約14.2億元收購荃灣汀蘭居,該物業在2021年12月15日的估值為24.6億元。物業樓高16層,佔地面積約216,314平方呎,共有435間客房,以上述收購價計,即平均每間房價值約326萬元。該物業曾分別作酒店及服務式住宅用途,業主亦曾把部分空間改裝成共居空間。

物業原由鄧成波家族持有,波叔於2017年以16.8億元購入物業,兩年前曾放售,當時叫價高見約23億元,一直未獲承接,現降至14.2億元沽出,較兩年前降價近4成,如今5年蝕2.6億元離場。

同時間,華大酒店亦指,以9億元沽出西環皇后大道西338至346號華麗都會酒店全幢物業。酒店樓高32層,於2015年落成,地盤面積約4,928平方呎,地下為大堂,1樓為停車場,7至32樓為酒店房間,提供214間房,總樓面約6萬平方呎。據了解,酒店暫作隔離檢疫用途,現時每晚房價約600元。以9億元成交價計,平均呎價約1.5萬元。

財團看好本地租務市場

據了解,新買家為共居品牌WEAVE LIVING,該集團指,將與另一基金安祖高頓 (Angelo Gordon) 合作投資華麗都會酒店項目。事實上,WEAVE LIVING近期表現非常積極,4月才以13.75億元購入九龍珀麗酒店,物業位於大角咀道86號,於2011年落成及開業,地盤面積約9,090平方呎,總樓面約11萬平方呎。項目樓高27層,提供435間房,以13.75億元成交價計,每間房價值約316萬元。WEAVE LIVING表示,將進行全面翻新,包括為部分房間重新布局,將物業打造成時尚、配套完備、靈活租期的現代住宿空間。

今年最大手酒店買賣,則為AEW基金以16.51億元購入紅磡「逸.酒店」(Hotel Sav),物業總樓面合共約12.21萬平方呎,設有388間客房。據了解,買家將改裝,日後或主打學生宿舍之用。

分析指,投資氣氛稍轉好,惟整體商業氣氛仍一般,需時回復。在多項物業中,以住宅市場表現最穩定,包括住宅租務需求仍強勁,財團看好本地住宅租務市場,購入酒店後改裝成共居空間、宿舍,主要客群為本地租客,比起傳統酒店靠遊客入住,收入相對穩定,預計相關市場尚有發展空間,令酒店買賣上升。

Goldin Financial’s Kowloon HQ put back on the market for around US$1.27 billion as debt struggle continues


Receivers for Goldin Financial Global Centre, a 28-storey office building in Kowloon Bay

The sale comes as billionaire major shareholder Pan Sutong lost control of Goldin’s assets to creditors.

The old headquarters of Goldin Financial Holdings has been put back on the market at an estimated price of around US$1.27 billion, as the property development and investment company’s debt crisis rolls on.

The receivers for Goldin Financial Global Centre, a 28-storey office building in Kowloon Bay, have assigned a real estate agency company to help sell the property.

“We will have a roadshow to market the building for local and international funds later,” a property agent told the South China Morning Post.

Market watchers estimate the property’s value at around HK$10 billion (US$1.27 billion) based on recent transactions of office space sold in the vicinity, ranging from HK$10,000 per square foot to HK$12,000 per square foot.

The sale comes as billionaire major shareholder Pan Sutong lost control of Goldin’s assets to creditors as the company struggles to service its massive debt pile.

Goldin recorded a loss of around HK$1.4 billion as liabilities reached HK$7.5 billion as of June 30, 2021. The Hong Kong-listed company postponed its annual results for 2021, citing disruptions caused by Covid-19 and related restrictions.

In 2020, receivers sold the building – located at 17 Kai Cheung Road, Kowloon Bay – for a reported HK$14 billion, but the deal failed to complete.

The Grade A tower has an area of 920,000 sq ft, spread across 28 floors above ground and three basement floors, according to the agency’s press release on Tuesday. Each floor has a gross floor area of around 35,000 sq ft. The tender will close at noon on Saturday, the agency said.

Goldin, among the most aggressive asset acquirers in Hong Kong in recent years, has been embroiled in a legal fight with hostile creditors over loan disputes. Goldin bought Kai Tak Area 4B Site 4 for HK$8.91 billion in November 2018, and another commercial site there for HK$11.1 billion in May 2019.

CK Asset Holdings, controlled by the family of Hong Kong’s famous billionaire Li Ka-shing, in July 2020 stepped in to help the indebted developer, arranging a HK$8.7 billion financing package to bail out the company.

Goldin had to bear an estimated loss of HK$2.57 billion (US$331.56 million) in May 2020, re-selling a residential plot at Kai Tak, the city’s former airport, citing the gloomy outlook as Covid-19 ravaged the city’s economy.

Clinics, car dealers snap up prime space as luxury brands bow out of Hong Kong’s slumping retail market

Human Health signed a six-year lease for HK$95 million to lease a 38,000-sq ft space at Star House in TST for one its 50 clinics in Hong Kong

Maserati took up a 9,000-sq ft show room at the H&S building in Causeway Bay while Porsche is moving to Hopewell Centre 2 in Wan Chai

Private clinics and car dealers are snapping up retail space around Hong Kong that had been vacated by luxury brands, giving commercial landlords some relief amid an industry slump caused by the dearth of tourists and competition from online shopping.

Human Health Holdings, which runs a network of 50 clinics around Hong Kong, signed a six-year contract for HK$95 million (US$12.1 million) in the first quarter to lease a 38,000-square foot (3,530 square metres) space at Star House in Tsim Sha Tsui, according to a property agency. The space was vacated by SaSa Plus after its lease expired in November 2020.

Maserati, the Italian sports car assembler, took up a 9,000-sq ft show room at the H&S building in Causeway Bay, left vacant by Mercedes-Benz. Its German competitor Porsche is closing its showroom on Gloucester Road in Wan Chai to move to Hopewell Centre 2, becoming one of the first tenants in the new development.

Rental charges at prime street locations and shopping centres have fallen by 5 per cent in the first quarter according to another property agency, giving non-luxury retailers and service providers the pick of choice locations in what is still one of the world’s most expensive real estate markets. Vacancy in Hong Kong’s four core shopping districts of Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Central and Mong Kok rose to 11 per cent in the first quarter, from 9.9 per cent at the start of 2022, according to another agency.

“With the ageing population and the Covid-19 pandemic, the locals are more health conscious,” an agent said. “The significant drop for the street level shops has attracted more medical service providers to explore street shop opportunities and increase exposure. For luxury car brands, it is more about relocation and flight to quality.”

Hong Kong’s economy contracted by a larger-than-expected 4 per cent in the first quarter, with retail sales declining by 7.6 per cent during the first three months. As many as 829 shops of the 7,524 shops surveyed by the agency stood empty at the end of March.

The vacancy rate and the cheaper rent – the highest in nearly two decades – helped Porsche, Maserati as well as Mercedes-Benz capitalise on the situation to have their choice of prime areas, the agency said.

Tourists and shoppers from mainland China – who spent HK$7,029 (US$905) each in 2018 – have stayed away from Hong Kong since the second half of 2019, driven away by months of anti-government street protests, and later by the Covid-19 pandemic. Hong Kong’s border with Shenzhen had remained closed for two years, keeping away the regular travellers who used to make up between 30 per cent and 40 per cent of the city’s retail sales.

Hong Kong’s luxury retail market is changing, as consumers change their behaviour and preferences, which compel brands to shift their strategies to adapt, agent said.

“The Hong Kong retail market changes all the time, [so] it is important to keep refreshing strategies and to adapt to the new market environment,” the agent said. “Landlords are more flexible in terms of rents and lease period [for now]. Shopping centre landlords are also providing more marketing support to tenants.”

Retailers are also likely to employ a two-prong strategy that will allow them to employ shops in core districts and residential areas or create two distinct brands for the premier shopping districts and neighbourhood shops.

“There will be a structural change in the Hong Kong retail market,” another agent said. “Online sale is playing a more significant role in the retail market due to changes in consumer behaviour. Future retail space will be focusing more on experience.”

Henderson set to launch Baker Circle, one of Hong Kong’s largest urban residential redevelopment projects

Sales of flats in the first phase of Baker Circle are likely to take place in June, Henderson executive says

The company plans to offer 1,000 flats in the first phase of the project on Gillies Avenue South, Hung Hom

Henderson Land Development is expected to kick off sales of an urban residential redevelopment project next month, one of the biggest by a private developer in Hong Kong.

Henderson, founded by Hong Kong’s second-richest man Lee Shau-kee, could launch the first phase of the 2,800-unit Baker Circle in Hung Hom for sale by June at the earliest, Thomas Lam, general manager of sales department, said on Tuesday.

This is the largest residential redevelopment project in the past 30 years by a private developer in terms of number of homes according to surveyors employed by the company, Henderson said.

“[Lee hopes] this project will let him contribute to society, having worked in property development for so many years,” said Lam. “In his heart, he [wants to] make the project great as he believes this to be the most important milestone of his career.”

The imminent launch comes on the heels of the opening of the East Rail’s cross-harbour section, which has cut the travel time from Hung Hom to Admiralty to 7 minutes.

The first phase of the nine-tower Baker Circle project is located at Gillies Avenue South, 10 minutes’ walking distance from Whampoa Garden. The first phase comprises 1,000 units in three towers and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2024.

While the first phase will mostly include one and two-bedroom units, Lam declined to provide further details.

The company expects to complete the entire project, which consists of eight construction sites, around 2027.

The city’s lived-in home prices slipped 3.2 per cent from December to March amid the fifth wave of the Covid-19 outbreak, data from the Rating and Valuation Department showed. But the recent easing of social distancing measures following a steady decline in cases has seen investors rush to buy flats at many new residential projects.

Henderson 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 square feet. It will include an almost 1km long pedestrian street inspired by London’s King’s Cross. The once derelict industrial site has been transformed and rejuvenated into a vibrant, traffic-free neighbourhood with new streets, squares and parks, homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants and schools.

“The small flat sizes can attract young buyers and professionals who work in the urban area, so the project has a ‘definite appeal’,” an agent said.

The pedestrian street is an added attraction since it is rare in Hong Kong, the agent added.

The Hong Kong-listed company has been one of the most active developers seeking redevelopment opportunities in urban areas amid limited land supply from the government.

To facilitate urban renewal, majority owners of a building over 50 years old who satisfy requirements under the Land (Compulsory Sale for Redevelopment) Ordinance can apply to the Lands Tribunal for an order for compulsory sale.

Under the ordinance, developers can force a compulsory auction to buy the remaining stake in a building, if they already own 80 per cent.

Notably, the project sits on a rare 999-year lease that came into effect from March 21, 1887. Baker Circle was named after Robert Baker, the chief engineer of Kowloon-Canton Railway.

Henderson to build 994 Kwu Tung flats

Henderson Land Development (0012) plans to build 994 flats in Kwu Tung and will soon launch a new project in Hung Hom.

The developer has proposed a minor relaxation of plot ratio and building height restriction for a development in the Kwu Tung North new development area, according to an application filed to Town Planning Board.

The site covers 5,250 square meters, and two 34-story blocks with a total gross floor area of 34,125 sq m are expected to be built upon it.

Meanwhile, Henderson's new redevelopment project in Hung Hom with 1,000 flats has been named Baker Circle and may be put on the market as early as next month.

The three-block project has mostly one- and two-bedroom units and is located at 38 Gillies Avenue South.

It is phase 1 of a 2,800 mega redevelopment across Gillies Avenue, Whampoa Street, Bulkeley Street, and Baker Street, which will be developed in three phases, providing a gross floor area of more than 1 million sq ft.

Phase 2 is expected to be launched in 2024 and the whole project will be built after 2027, the developer said.

This came as the Buildings Department said it approved 13 building plans in March, including Henderson's and Swire Properties' (0012) plan of constructing two 28-story complexes in Quarry Bay.

The two buildings will provide 34,219.4 sq m of residential space and 6,721.7 sq m for commercial use.

Separately, some completed units of luxury project Bisney Crest in Pok Fu Lam has opened to the public for viewing, said the developer Chinachem Group.

中環中心每呎80元租出

第五波疫情持續放緩,帶動甲廈租務交投轉活。消息指,由金利豐行政總裁朱李月華持有的中環中心高層單位,於交吉約3年後,以每呎約80元租出,與舊租金相若。

物業交吉約3

市場消息指出,中環中心6110室,建築面積約2487方呎,新以每呎約80元租出,月租約198960元;據業內人士指出,上址於上一手租戶於2018年8月以每呎約80元租用,惟於2019年中棄租離場,故上址交吉近三年再度租出。

事實上,中環中心近期頻錄承租,資料顯示,由外號「小巴大王」馬亞木持有的中環中心5106至7室,建築面積約4233方呎,早前以每呎約80元續租,月租約338640元,上址於早前由同一商戶以每呎約95元租用,較舊租金下調15.7%,但已屬貼市水平。

金利豐朱李月華持有

同區交易廣場一座亦錄承租個案,消息指,該甲廈2801至2室,建築面積約2886方呎,新以每呎約145元租出,月租4184元。

消息指,擺花街46號中晶商業大廈低層,屬銀主物業,建築面積約2161方呎,以約3500萬成交,呎價約16196元。上一手業主於2017年1月以3014.3萬購入,物業於5年間升值約485.7萬,升幅約16%。

本報昨日率先披露,九龍灣高銀金融國際中心將標售,該項目最終由一間外資代理行負責招標,寫字樓及零售樓面合共約92萬方呎,由接管人委託出售,該代理行指出,項目錄多組財團查詢。

高銀金融國際中心位處九龍灣啓祥道17號,該行代理指,該廈扣除高銀自用樓面,出租率約6成,呎租約27至30元,租客主要為跨國企業。項目早前已錄多組財團查詢,以本地財團為主,亦有來自海外,內地財團比例較小。

總樓面約92萬方呎

該廈樓高28層,另地下3層,包括地面大堂入口層、1樓至2樓餐飲樓層,寫字樓及零售樓面共92萬方呎,4樓至27樓寫字樓,每層建築面積約3.5萬方呎;27樓上方為天台空中花園,物業尚有3個地庫停車場樓層 (B1至B3),提供279個車位,全部配備電動車充電裝置。項目於7月21日截標。

赤柱廣場逾25億獲洽購 5名準買家角逐料短期內揭盅

疫市下,大手買賣表現毫不遜色,尤其外資基金愈戰愈勇,領展旗下的赤柱廣場,獲五名準買家積極角逐,其中有出價逾25億,結果有機會於短期內揭盃。

是次該宗洽購別具意義,顯示疫市下,實力買家仍眾多,消息人士透露,今年1月底,一家基金看中赤柱廣場,有意以約27億承接,並透過大型代理行與領展接洽,領展因而公布標售物業。

不料第五波疫情來得激烈,該家基金突然退縮,着實令代理「一額汗」。

領展:相關工作進行中

不過,代理咬實牙關四處找客,意外地,該項目截收5張標書,雖然出價與領展意向還有距離,不過,在進入第二輪洽談當中,最新有準買家出價高逾25億,令該宗一度面臨泡湯的買賣,出現爭奪激烈場面,儘管賣方索價仍硬淨,買賣重現生機,結果有機會於短期內揭盅。

本報昨日向領展查詢,發言人回應,有關本集團邀請買家表達對購買赤柱廣場意向,相關工作仍進行中,若交易得以落實,將正式公布。

外資基金準買家佔大比數

市場消息續說,今番投標數目之多,是代理努力成果,而今番外資基金佔大比數,外資客對赤柱特別有情意結,一併出售的,亦包括赤柱廣場旁的美利樓,屬維多利亞時期建築物,由金鐘重置到赤柱。

約40家商鋪悉數出租

本報記者於過去周末走訪該商場,見人流量相當不俗,以家庭客為主,外籍人士佔兩至三成,該商場由地下至5樓,約40間商鋪悉數出租,上層商戶以時裝店及精品百貨為主導,1樓及2樓設大型超市及多間食肆,地下聚集酒吧,不少外籍人士於此駐足消遣。

盛滙商舖基金創辦人李根興評論道,港島南區聚集外籍人士,與外國生活環境相若,而赤柱環境及氣氛,向來更受外籍人士垂青。

領展於今年2月11日公布,接獲有潛在買家洽購旗下赤柱廣場,物業估值逾14億,為了賣出更好價錢,決定公開招標,項目包括購物中心部分、戶外表演場地的閒情坊、170多年的歷史建築美利樓,以及停車場泊位。負責招標的代理行指,擬出售物業樓面面積約19萬平方呎,出租率逾95%。

據領展資料顯示,赤柱廣場內部樓面面積為9.8萬方呎,擁有411個車位,年租金逾7100萬,截至去年9月底,其估值逾14億,佔領展總資產組合不足1%。

Cotton On設中環旗艦店 租金跌逾半

皇后大道中萬呎舖每月50萬 屬同區搬遷

舖位租金持續下跌,不少跨國品牌趁機換貨,澳洲時裝品牌Cotton On以50萬元,租用中環皇后大道中近1萬呎舖位,屬同區搬遷。該店原由Esprit租用,遷出近兩年後舖位終獲承接,按呎租計租金跌逾半。

市場消息指,中環錄得一宗大額商舖租務成交,涉及皇后大道中永恆商業大廈兩層,面積約9,722平方呎,以約50萬元租出,呎租約51元,料作品牌旗艦店。該舖位處中環核心零售段皇后大道中,對面為中環街市及日本超市Donki,屬區內人流頗暢旺地段。

消息透露,新租客為澳洲時裝店Cotton On,該品牌早於十多年前落戶香港,並租用中環德己立街2至12號業豐大廈地下A、B舖連地庫,即蘭桂坊一帶,舖位面積約8,380平方呎。據悉,兩年前品牌與業主大鴻輝續約,月租由110萬元,減逾2成至約85萬元,續約兩年。如今約滿,品牌趁同區有其他大樓面舖位招租,即作出搬遷。

上手租客Esprit 呎租近118

翻查資料,永恆商業大廈多層舖位,曾由本地時裝Esprit租用,品牌於2014年以約200萬元租用該廈地下、高層地下及地庫,合共約1.7萬平方呎樓面,呎租約117.6元。2020年本港爆發疫情,零旅客下多個時裝品牌棄租皇后大道中舖位,而Esprit亦遷出,舖位一直未有長租客租用,僅有口罩店短租數月。如今Cotton On租用物業兩層,按呎租計,新租金較舊租金跌逾半。

隨着疫情緩和,核心區商舖租務稍為增加,中環近一年租務成交亦較其他核心區為多,如同區娛樂行地下一舖位,面積約2,400平方呎,獲時裝品牌「Love Bonito」租用,月租料約30萬元。該品牌曾於同區H Queen開設期間限定店,如今長租娛樂行舖位。

娛樂行地舖 月租料30萬元

據悉,早年名車品牌平治以約450萬元租用上址及比鄰鋪位,品牌遷出後,去年舖位曾獲糖果店短租。

近年區內較大手時裝品牌租舖,為去年陸海通大廈地下及1樓兩層,獲時裝American Eagle以近100萬元承租,租金跌逾6成。

灣仔3政府大樓 可增建250萬呎樓面

灣仔北一帶有不少指標商廈及政府相關設施,而隨着東鐵綫過海段通車、會展站落成,該帶的潛力更進一步提升。環顧政府近年研究騰空以轉作商業用途的3幅灣仔北地皮,預計日後可以新增約250萬平方呎總樓面面積。

落實重建為會展酒店及甲廈

據2017年《施政報告》公布,位於灣仔北的3座政府大樓項目,包括灣仔政府大樓、稅務大樓、入境事務大樓,及港灣消防局用地,落實重建為會展設施、酒店和甲級寫字樓等。據區議會文件所示,上述組成的重建地盤面積166,239平方呎,以地積比率15倍重建,其可建樓面面積高達約249.4萬平方呎,估計樓高可達52層,其中最低10層將發展為會議及展覽樓面,涉約92.6萬平方呎,而中間的27層則重建為甲級商廈,總樓面達97萬平方呎。

至於項目最高15層,則作為酒店用途,涉及約57萬平方呎總樓面,將會提供近500間客房。綜合市場資訊,去年地皮估值約逾500億元,即每呎樓面地價逾2萬元。值得一提的是,現時的港灣消防局已經落實重置於已在2月正式關閉的灣仔分域碼頭。

而會展站上蓋本已改劃為「綜合發展區」用途,擬作新會議中心。不過,因計劃涉及多重技術困難、不確定的施工期,及不合乎成本效益的考慮,因此2020年《施政報告》已經宣布決定擱置計劃,並把會展站上蓋轉作其他用途。但是,當局未有落實將改作住宅或商業用途。

金鐘大廈申強拍 市值逾8

另外,駱克道219至227號的前灣仔已婚警察宿舍用地,亦計劃連同前方的前灣仔警署項目合併推出,並有機會重新再納入未來的賣地表內,以發展成一個商業及酒店等混合項目。值得留意是,由於警署屬於二級歷史建築物,將只容許改裝為活化酒店,整項目總樓面涉約25.5萬平方呎。

另一方面,鑑於灣仔的交通配套發展成熟,而且鄰近港島核心商業地段,多年來吸引各大發展商及財團積極收購區內舊樓,其中本地老牌家族永倫集團,近期就灣仔謝斐道52至58號金鐘大廈正式入紙申請強拍。集團已經集合該項目約86.67%業權,項目現況市值約8.43億元。

過海段通車 灣仔商廈陸續推售

東鐵綫過海段於過去周日已經正式通車,業界預期通車可帶動沿綫物業住宅樓價及寫字樓租售價,其中有財團看準該優勢,近期推售位於灣仔謝斐道的商廈樓花項目。

Novo Jaffe 入場費800餘萬

在東鐵綫過海段的利好因素下,宏基資本 (02288) 旗下灣仔謝斐道218號商廈新盤 Novo Jaffe 近日推出,合共提供58伙,預計入場費約800餘萬元,平均呎價約1.8萬元起。據消息人士指,項目中低層全層已獲預留。同時,有指外資基金凱龍瑞旗下的灣仔軒尼詩道重建項目Hennessy 333,亦準備於短期內推出。

據市場研究報告指,雖然近期的商廈市場氣氛好轉,但4月份整體甲廈市場售價及租金均錄得輕微下跌,分別按月跌0.1%及0.3%。其中,港島核心區如中環的甲廈4月平均呎租為63.1元,按月下跌4.3%,而灣仔平均呎租錄50.1元,按月跌1.3%。不過,受惠東鐵綫過海段通車,港島核心商業區一帶交通網絡變得更完善,加上疫情逐步受控,預計帶動中環及金鐘甲廈的租賃交投量上升。

疫情走勢放緩,帶動甲廈租務交投轉活。消息指,上環信德中心西翼中層單位,於交吉約9個月後,以每呎約48元租出,屬貼市價水平。

屬貼市價水

市場消息指,上環信德中心西翼中層10室,建築面積約1150方呎,新以每呎約48元租出,月租約5.52萬。據代理指,上址早前為業主自用物業,惟於去年9月交吉至今,最新呎租屬貼市價水平。

據代理資料顯示,該甲廈於今年以來頻錄承租,成交呎租介乎42元至60元,最近承租個案為低層6B室,建築面積1000方呎,本月以每呎約42元租出,月租約4.2萬。

羅守輝1350萬沽觀塘地鋪持貨10年升值近1

疫情放緩,投資老手亦趁勢沽貨,由裕泰興家族成員羅守輝持有的觀塘雲漢街地鋪以約1350萬易手,呎價約9433元,原業主持貨十年帳面獲利約670萬;羅守輝於最近兩個月連沽三鋪位,套現約4160萬。

據代理指出,由裕泰興家族成員羅守輝持有的觀塘雲漢街45號地鋪連入則閣,鋪位建築面積1431方呎,另設閣樓建築面積510方呎,以1350萬售出,呎價約9433元(不計閣樓),原業主於2012年4月以680萬買入,持貨10年帳面獲利約670萬,物業期間升值約0.98倍。該鋪由車房以約3.5萬租用,料買家享回報約3.1厘。

事實上,自疫情於上月放緩後,羅守輝頻頻沽貨,資料顯示,羅氏於本月沽出深水埗白楊街25E至25F號恆成大樓地鋪連入則閣,建築面積約1371方呎,作價2160萬,平均呎價15755元,他於2019年8月以1800萬買入,持貨約3年帳面獲利約360萬,升幅約20%,租客Project B為西式餐廳,月租4.2萬,租期至2023年10月,回報約2.29厘。

西洋菜南街每呎122元跌67%零售商簽2年長約租金平過沙士時

疫情持續放緩,帶動鋪位租務交投轉活,惟核心區租金仍備受壓力。消息指,旺角一綫街道西洋菜南街地鋪新以11萬獲零售商長租兩年,呎租約122元,較上一手長租急挫約67%,最新租金更平過當年「沙士」;據業內人士指出,隨疫情放緩,零售商紛趁勢以長租搶佔核心區一綫地段,惟現今吉鋪數量高踞不下,料鋪租持續受壓。

市場消息指,旺角西洋菜南街136號地鋪,建築面積約900方呎,最新以11萬租出,租約為期兩年,平均呎租約122元。據地產代理指出,上址於2015年起由韓國化妝品牌以約34萬租用,呎租高達377元,2017年中租約屆滿撤出,該鋪交吉達4年之久,直至去年底獲時裝店短租至今,故最新租金較上一手長租急挫約67%。

每月租金11

據大型代理行資料顯示,上述鋪位早於2003年至2006年期間,由甜品店以約14.3萬租用,所以,最新租金較「沙士」時期低逾20%,反映現今核心區的鋪市疲弱不堪。該鋪位鄰近西洋菜南街及亞皆老街交界,毗鄰旺角港鐵站出入口,為旺角區內最核心地段之一。

沙士時租14.3

代理分析指,隨疫情放緩帶動,連鎖零售商紛趁勢搶租核心區一綫地段,現時租金已見底,租戶傾向以長約鎖定租金,由於吉鋪數量仍處高水平,短期內整體鋪租升幅輕微。

事實上,受疫情打擊,旺角西洋菜南街鋪租早已大幅下滑,該街道8號至50號地鋪及閣樓,建築面積約3600方呎,交吉僅約一個月,本月獲英國化妝品牌LUSH以約50萬租用,租期約三年,呎租約138元。

該鋪早前獲連鎖時裝店Bossini於去年4月以約25萬短租上址,租期僅一年,今年3月約滿遷出,再上一手租戶為韓國化妝品Laneige,於2016年取代卓悅進駐,當時租金高達120萬,故最新租金較長租急挫約58%。

大道中鋪月租50萬減50%

此外,市場消息指出,中環皇后大道中永恆商業大廈兩層,總樓面約9722方呎,新獲澳洲時裝品牌以50萬租用,呎租約51.4元,較舊租金急挫逾50%。

事實上,新蒲崗區內新型工廈不多,但租務成交亦算活躍,據代理網頁顯示,新蒲崗區內工廈今年以來錄暫300宗租務成交,平均呎租介乎約11至23元不等,而市場新錄得新科技廣場中層單位,面積約1,096平方呎,以每平方呎約19元租出,月租約2.08萬元,另,利景工業大廈低層,面積約820平方呎,以約1.5萬元租出,平均呎租18元。

集兩鐵之便 盡享地利

代理續稱,該項目由新世界集團匠心打造,信心之選;加上項目盡享地利優勢,附近有多條巴士及小巴路綫外,港鐵鑽石山站及啟德站亦只是咫尺之遙。代理認為,Artisan Lab為新蒲崗區提供工業樓面,物業配套設施齊備,具上佳地理位置,加上呎租相宜,尤其適合各行各業進駐。而新蒲崗配合啟德發展區產生協同效應,隨着新盤陸續落成,帶來龐大的潛在消費力,租賃需求愈趨強勁,相信將會有不少企業租客有意率先搶佔優質地段開業,料洽租情況反應會見熱烈。

火炭嘉里貨倉全幢 24億洽至尾聲

呎價約5581 買家華潤物流呼聲

貨倉近1年成投資焦點,發展商趁機放售非核心物業。嘉里 (00683) 放售旗下火炭嘉里 (沙田) 貨倉全幢,據悉獲24億元洽購至尾聲,有望短期內易手,消息稱以華潤物流奪得物業呼聲較高。

市場消息指,嘉里早前放售嘉里 (沙田) 貨倉,物業位於火炭山尾街36至42號,對面為近年入伙的駿洋邨,樓高18層,每層面積約2.8萬平方呎,總樓面面積約43萬平方呎,並提供約64個車位。

據了解,該物業現時出租率理想,呎租約12至14元,主要為物流行業租用。市場人士指,業主早前暗盤放售物業,並獲多個財團洽購,其中一財團出價約24億元,呎價約5,581元,貼近業主意向價,有望短期內易手。

華潤去年斥近30億入市

消息指,洽購財團不乏外資基金及用家,包括近期積極入市的華潤物流。該集團去年活躍,先後向鄧成波家族購入屯門及粉嶺工廈。涉及屯門東亞紗廠工業大廈第一期全幢,以及粉嶺安樂門街35至37號勉勵龍中心全幢,分別涉約22.42億及6.95億元,合共近30億元。

事實上,該集團於同區亦持有工廈,涉及火炭禾香街2至10號華潤物流 (沙田冷倉),料是次再於同區增持工廈,作集團物流倉之用,預計奪得物業呼聲較高。另外,由於物業樓底較高,加上火炭適合發展數據中心,故亦有基金曾研究物業作改裝數據中心。

嘉里近兩年不時沽售非核心物業,包括荃灣、土瓜灣舖位,以及九龍灣企業廣場商廈單位等。

工廈成焦點 屢錄大額成交

隨着近期疫情緩和,大額物業交投轉好,工廈再度成為投資焦點,市場近期錄得數宗全幢工廈成交。包括葵涌貨櫃碼頭路43號集運中心全幢,以近29億元成交,物業總樓面面積約26.62萬平方呎,呎價高見1.09萬元,為區內工廈呎價新高。新買家為美資基金Nuveen旗下Asia Pacific Cities Fund (APCF)。另外,粉嶺業暢街6號新中國洗衣集團大廈全幢以約4.5億元易手,物業總面積約101,463平方呎,呎價約4,435元。買家為外資基金Heitman,購入轉作凍倉用途。

Huge Kai Tak projects to offer 6,740 homes


Major housing projects at Kai Tak to be launched in the second half of this year will put as many as 6,740 homes on the market.

They include two projects with a total of 2,000 homes in Kai Tak co-developed by Wheelock Properties and other developers, two projects from K Wah International (0173) and one from Henderson Land Development (0012).

Also set for a second half launch is a project from Chinachem and MTRC (0066) in Ho Man Tin.

Wheelock said at an event yesterday that both the Area 4B Site 1 development - in partnership with Henderson and China Overseas Land & Investment (0688) - and Area 4B Site 3 development - with New World Development (0017) - are pending presale consents, and it plans to launch these projects in the third and fourth quarter of this year.

K Wah International also said it has two projects, which offer a total of more than 4,000 homes, in the area waiting for the presale approval at the same event.

Thomas Lam Tat-man, a general manager of Henderson's sales department, said its new project at 8 Muk Tai Street, which provides 740 homes, is expected to be put on the market in the second half as well.

Upper Riverbank, which has sold 557 units at an average price of HK$28,000 per square foot, still has 110 units left, said the developers KWG (1813) and Longfor (0960).

Most of the remaining units are huge flats with three or four bedrooms, and may be put up for sale via tender in the future, they said.

The two mainland developers also said they have teamed up and built a luxury project in Ap Lei Chau which could be launched in the third quarter at the earliest.

Separately, Chinachem chief Donald Choi Wun-hing said at another event that its Ho Man Tin project is expected to be launched in the second half and the developer remains confident in Hong Kong's property market.

Choi said the US interest rate hikes would not have much of an impact on the sector and the property prices will go up steadily in the future.

In Tai Po, Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) said it will release the first price list for Silicon Hill next week at the earliest and expected to launch the sales by the end of this month.

In Cheung Sha Wan, The Symphonie has obtained the pre-sale consent and will reveal the sale brochures as early as next week, the developer Henderson said.

中環皇后大道中九號高層每呎70元跌32% 丟空近1年始租出 回報低見1.5厘

疫情持續放緩,帶動甲廈租務交投轉活,惟租金跌勢未止。中環皇后大道中九號高層單位,交吉近一年後,以每呎約70元租出,較舊租金急挫約32%,租金回報僅1.5厘;據業內人士指出,中港兩地通關無期,加上市場亦受加息陰霾及俄烏戰爭等因素困擾,料核心區甲廈租金於短期內仍備受壓力。

市場消息指出,中環皇后大道中九號高層6室,建築面積約2980方呎,新以每呎約70元租出,月租約208600元。據代理指出,上址位處大單邊,外望禮賓府景致,上一手租金為每呎103元,惟租戶於去年6月撤出交吉,單位於丟空近一年再度租出,租金急挫約32%。代理亦透露,業主於2018年9月以約1.635億購入,以新租金計,回報1.53厘,屬偏低水平。

屬單邊優質單位

有代理指,現今甲廈整體租金報約2厘水平,儘管本港疫情持續放緩,惟中港兩地至今仍然通關無期,加上內地疫情仍然嚴峻,令甲廈租務需求仍然疲弱,加上美國聯儲局早前宣布加息半厘,亦預期會持續縮減資產負債表規模,加上俄烏戰爭持續發酵,令甲廈租務市場觀望氣氛揮之不去,料核心區甲廈租金於短期內仍備受壓力。

業內人士指,於2017年及2018年商廈高峰期,皇后大道中九號呎租普遍逾100元,即使於2019年,政治事件引發動亂期間,皇后大道中九號仍能力保100元水平,惟現今該廈平均呎租已大幅回落至每呎50餘元至70元水平。

上手租金每呎103

此外,核心區亦錄另一宗甲廈租金大幅下滑個案,消息指,金鐘力寶中心一座中層3室,建築面積約1790方呎,新以每呎36元租出,月租約64440元。據悉,上址於上一手租於2017年底以每呎61.5元租出,租約於2019年初屆滿交吉,故單位丟空3年半後再度租出,租金急挫約41%。

力寶中心每呎36元租出減41%

尖沙嘴新東海商業中心低層1室,面積3194呎,以3513.4萬沽,呎價1.1萬,原業主於1993年2235.8萬購入,持貨29年帳面獲利1277.6萬。

甲廈連續7個月錄淨吸納量

疫情走勢持續穩定,為甲廈市場釋出正面訊息,據一間外資代理行指出,上月甲廈錄淨吸納量24.9萬方呎,按月彈升逾7成,屬市場連續7個月錄淨吸納量。

該代理行昨日發表的地產市場報告指,受社交距離措施放寬等利好因素刺激,4月甲廈市場錄24.9萬方呎淨吸納量,較今年3月的5.62萬方呎淨吸納量,按月升約77%,屬連續7個月錄淨吸納量。

上月淨吸納量錄24.9萬呎

至於空置率方面,中環空置率新報7.4%,較3月的7.3%按月微升,九龍東空置率12.8%,仍然為各主要分區市場中最高,整體市場空置率維持在9.4%;中環租金月內微升0.1%,尖沙嘴則按月跌0.9%,屬分區市場中最大租金跌幅。

中環空置率錄按月微升

該行代理表示,儘管本港首季普遍公司均採取在家工作模式,甲級寫字樓租賃需求仍然保持穩定,隨著政府四月份起放寬社交距離措施,愈來愈多公司重投市場物色新辦公室,市場氣氛將持續改善。

該行另一代理稱,上月商鋪投資市場亦稍為回升,錄數宗大額成交,較矚目的為私人投資者楊志超以1.7億買入中環業豐大廈地下連閣樓商鋪,以建築面積約5200方呎計,呎價約32692元。

4工廈重建料獲城規通過 可建樓面逾百萬方呎

工廈活化計畫備受市場追捧,最新有4宗工廈活化重建項目申請,涉及可建總樓面約105.06萬方呎,當中最矚目為伯恩光學總裁楊建文等人持有的觀塘3幢工廈,申請合併重建為一幢樓高39層的商廈,均獲規劃署不反對,城規會今天將舉行會議審理,料可獲該會「開綠燈」通過。

由伯恩光學總裁楊建文等人持有的觀塘3幢工廈,包括開源道75至77號的業發工業大廈1期及2期,以及巧明街119至121號的年運工業大廈,鄰近觀塘鱷魚恤中心及apm等,去年9月曾向城規會申請合併發展,並放寬兩成地積比率限制。

擬建一幢樓高39層商廈

項目地盤面積約5萬方呎,地積比率由12倍增加至14.4倍,擬議重建為1幢樓高39層 (包括各1層的平台花園、防火層及空中花園,另有5層地庫) 的商業大廈,其中地庫1樓至10樓屬零售餐飲用途,樓上則屬於辦公室用途,涉及總樓面約72萬方呎;最新獲規劃署不反對,料可獲城規會通過。

屯門2工廈將分拆重建

另外,由英皇國際持有的屯門新安街兩幢工廈,即新安街13號的寶泰工業大廈,以及新安街15號的山齡工業大廈,早於2020年1月獲批合併重建,去年10月該公司再向城規會遞交新發展方案,將上述兩工廈分拆作單獨重建,該項目地盤面積同為1萬方呎,上述兩幢工廈分別重建為一幢樓高23層 (包括兩層地庫) 的新式工廈,可建總樓面約11.4萬方呎,即兩廈重建後合共可提供約22.8萬方呎工業樓面;是次改劃亦獲規劃署不反對,料可獲通過。

至於由財團持有的葵涌藍田街7至13號榮達工業大廈,去年曾向城規會申請略為放寬地積比率限制,以作准許的非污染工業用途 (不包括涉及使用/貯存危險品的工業經營),地盤面積約9000方呎,重建為1幢不多於19層高的新式工廈,總樓面涉約10.26萬方呎;該申請獲規劃署不反對,料可獲通過。

港島商廈吸引 實力投資者入市

本港近期疫情平穩,政府落實第二階段放寬社交距離措施,商廈活動逐漸恢復。有代理行發表報告指出,4月份租務成交量反彈至近5個月高位,而50大指標甲廈成交量亦回升至1月份疫情較穩定時的水平,上月共錄得9宗買賣。

現時甲級寫字樓市場雖然初步錄得正吸納量,但租金水平仍處於低位,沒有起色。報告指,上月甲廈租金錄得輕微下跌,按月跌0.3%,當中港島核心區如金鐘、中環的甲廈租金需調整以吸引租客,包括金鐘太古廣場三期中環中心高層單位,租金較之前低1至3成,導致中環區的甲廈租金按月挫4.3%,屬跌幅最大的分區。

至於甲廈空置率亦屬偏高,報告又指,4月份整體甲廈空置率為9.5%,東九龍甲廈空置率更升至14.7%,為各分區中最高,亦是自2021年11月份以來最高。反觀乙級寫字樓因為經過一輪企業收縮、重組,租金跌幅已經初步喘定,尤其是傳統核心區,例如灣仔、銅鑼灣、中環、上環、油尖旺等區域已經見底,乙廈相對而言更獲投資者注視。

灣仔全新寫字樓反應熾熱

現時仍未見重大利好因素刺激商廈買賣市場,成交略見疲弱,但近期灣仔有個別獨具特色的全新寫字樓項目,反應熾熱。由於港島區已有一段時間缺乏寫字樓新供應項目投入市場,部分擁有充裕資金的實力投資者現時或會將目光投放於港島寫字樓,用作自用或投資,區內寫字樓對他們而言依然非常具吸引力。

再者,港島核心商業區一帶交通網絡已日趨完善,東鐵綫過海段早前正式通車,貫通新界東北、九龍中及港島,由紅磡延伸過海至港島,瞬間直達灣仔北及金鐘一帶的商貿、會展及金融中心,金鐘站更成為四綫滙聚的「超級轉車站」,有望帶動灣仔、中環及金鐘寫字樓的租賃交投量上升,而新商廈項目步行至會展站及灣仔站只需約5分鐘,正可盡享兩站滙聚優勢,相信區內商貿氣氛會更趨濃厚。

疫情緩和 核心區一綫街舖租務升

隨着疫情持續緩和,商戶重新租舖,在疫情下核心區一綫街吉舖處處,近日漸有起色,相繼錄得舖位租務成交。

近日核心零售區租務成交上升,特別一綫地段商舖,漸獲零售商重新留意。中環核心一綫段皇后大道中連錄租務成交,焦點落在皇后大道中永恆商業大廈2層,面積約9,722平方呎,以約50萬元租出,呎租約51元。

新租客為澳洲時裝店Cotton On,原租用同區德己立街2至12號業豐大廈地下A、B舖連地庫,即蘭桂坊一帶,舖位面積約8,380平方呎。據悉,2年前品牌與業主大鴻輝續約,月租由110萬元,減逾2成至約85萬元,續約2年。如今約滿,品牌趁同區有其他大樓面舖位招租,即作出搬遷。

Cotton On租大道中近萬呎

翻查資料,永恆商業大廈多層舖位,曾由本地時裝Esprit租用,品牌於2014年以約200萬元租用該廈地下、高層地下及地庫,合共約1.7萬平方呎樓面,呎租約117.6元。2020年本港爆發疫情,零旅客下多個時裝品牌棄租皇后大道中舖位,而Esprit亦遷出,舖位一直未有長租客租用,僅有口罩店短租數月。如今Cotton On租用物業2層,按呎租計,新租金較舊租金跌逾半。

另外,同區娛樂行地下一舖位,面積約2,400平方呎,獲時裝品牌「Love, Bonito」租用,月租料約30萬元。該品牌曾於同區H Queen's開設期間限定店,如今長租娛樂行舖位。該舖早年曾由名車品牌平治以約450萬元租用,品牌遷出後,去年舖位曾獲糖果店短租。

前Burberry旗艦店 餐飲集團承接

至於銅鑼灣區,一綫地段羅素街錄大樓面租務,位於羅素街金朝陽中心地下A、B舖至1樓複式舖位,面積合共5,200平方呎,獲餐飲集團承租,開設以動畫「變形金剛」為主題的餐廳,為本港首間,據了解,由於舖位面積大,店內除了有餐飲外,更有零售區售賣變形金剛玩具及紀念品等。

該舖於10年前,獲名牌Burberry以每月約770萬元租用,租金較前租客 (手機品牌) 高2.5倍。品牌於2015年以880萬元續租,其後租金回落,估計Burberry最後每月租金約200萬元水平。如今餐飲集團以約100萬元租用,較舊租平一半,較高峰期更跌近9成。

至於銅鑼灣波斯富街77至83號地下Q號舖,面積約600平方呎,以約17萬元租出,呎租約283元。舖位曾由藥房以48萬元租用,新租金跌逾6成。

分析指,隨着疫情緩和,消費氣氛轉好,零售商及餐飲業亦有興趣重新租舖,而核心區一綫地段舖租由高峰大幅回調,漸有吸引力,故租務增加。不過,由於尚未有通關消息,故涉及旅客消費的大型品牌,尚未積極擴充,故相信通關消費進一步落實,核心區舖位租務及租金才有明顯反彈。

H&M再縮店 棄租尖沙咀新港中心

兩層共2萬呎舖 高峰期月租逾千

第5波疫情衝擊零售業,再有時裝連鎖店放棄核心區旗艦店。H&M租用逾10年的尖沙咀廣東道新港中心兩層舖位,決定棄租,佔地約兩萬平方呎,將於月底約滿遷出,高峰期月租逾1,000萬元。

H&M於疫情期間,先後放棄旺角、奧海城等3間分店,如今更放棄一綫地段旗艦店。據悉,尚未有新租客頂上,業主亦打算把舖位「化整為零」,分拆再招租。

業主擬「化整為零」 分拆再招租

尖沙咀新港中心地下及1樓,由時裝店H&M租用多年,而該店近日進行清貨大減價,全場貨品半價,並預告今個月底結業。據了解,是次關閉後未有搬遷計劃,意味品牌再度減分店。

新港中心位於尖沙咀廣東道正中間,旺市時廣東道為旅客必到之處,故商場向街舖位價值相當高。翻查資料,H&M舖位原由多個租客包括時裝、餐廳等租用,2008年自由行旅客消費漸旺,業主把商場地下及1樓,合共約2萬平方呎舖位,以約700萬元租予H&M。其後品牌再續約,租金曾加至逾1,000萬元。

數年前旅客消費已不復當年般強勁,租金普遍下跌,而品牌對上租約,估計已降至約300萬元,而租約至今年5月完結,相信有見兩年疫情嚴重衝擊零售,品牌決定棄租。消息指,是次H&M遷出,尚未有新租客頂上,據了解業主有見近年複式店需求降,故相信把2萬呎舖位分拆招租。

受疫情影響,近兩年H&M不斷縮減分店,當中不乏大型旗艦店,包括早年以900萬租用旺角登打士街家樂坊多層舖位,合共5.4萬平方呎,品牌於2020年遷出,如今換上超市、體育用品店等租用。

另外,H&M亦先後放棄奧海城、黃埔等分店,如今更棄租10多年黃金地段巨舖,目前在港仍有約10多間分店。而集團於本年3月亦再表示,今年將全球再關閉240間分店,同時新開95間,故仍淨關閉145間,新開業店舖亦僅集中於新興市場。

業界:網上銷售搶年輕消費群

第5波疫情年初爆發,令零售市道受嚴重衝擊,商舖租金再度下挫。據一間外資代理行資料顯示,去年疫情緩和後,連續3季4大核心零售區中環、尖沙咀、旺角及銅鑼灣,舖租未見下挫,更有個別地區及季度出現輕微回升。可是今年疫情爆發,更是空前嚴峻,商舖租金今年已跌約5%。

快速時裝 (fast fashion) 近年有減分店趨勢,另一代理認為,近年消費者選購快速時裝,多透過網上平台,對品牌來說,網上銷售既切合年輕消費群,同時不用租大樓面舖位作貨品陳列,可節省租金開支。對業主來說,近年不少品牌放棄旗艦店後,因缺乏新品牌頂上租用全數樓面,變陣分拆再招租。

後市方面,另一代理認為,疫情反覆令商戶租舖上會較為審慎,今年商舖租金料在低位徘徊。

本地消費撑市道 國際名牌未起動

放寬限聚令,本土消費回升,有利餐飲、家品等本土商戶擴充,惟未通關情況下,國際連鎖品牌及奢侈品,現只繼續等待,令核心區舖位空置情況未有大改善。

疫情緩和,政府在上月先放寬限聚措施,餐廳晚市堂食重開,而昨日次階段放寬措施落實,基本上所有處所現已重開,市民重新外出消費,加上4月中派發消費券,近一個月市面氣氛明顯向好。

食肆趁租金回調 擴充吸客

在租務市場方面,近一個月商舖租務稍轉好,並集中在餐飲方面,餐廳趁租金回調,加上本地消費強勁,故租務較活躍。其次,涉及體育用品、家品店等,同樣租務相對理想。由於目前仍未通關,港人尚未恢復外遊,絕大部分仍留港消費,令餐廳、家品等生意上升,相關商戶尚有擴充。

不過,核心區零售地段,仍是吉舖處處,尖沙咀廣東道、銅鑼灣羅素街兩大最貴租地段,即使疫情緩和,缺乏大手新租務下,仍陸續有商戶約滿遷出。如今年羅素街已有鐘錶、首飾店等遷出,未有租客頂上。廣東道是次H&M遷出外,比鄰舖位原仍由名牌租3層,年初遷出後同樣交吉至今。

核心區零售商生意來源主要為旅客,因遊客消費一般較高,加上涉及奢侈品等高消費,商戶承租能力較高,如今本港與外地通關尚未有時間表,單靠本地消費,大型品牌特別奢侈品,實在難以計數,故仍按兵不動。

相比之下,餐飲因有本地市場支持,故仍有擴充空間,惟承租能力遠不及高級零售商,可承受每呎租金僅數十元,能夠進駐核心區一綫地段個案少之又少,相信通關消費未進一步落實,核心區舖位空置率仍偏高。

Kerry Properties sells two godowns for $4.6b


Kerry Properties says it has entered into an agreement with China Resources Logistics to sell two warehouses for HK$4.62 billion.

Kerry said in a filing yesterday that one of its wholly owned subsidiaries plans to sell the Chai Wan warehouse for HK$2.29 billion and the Sha Tin warehouse for HK$2.33 billion.

The buyer, CRL, is an indirect wholly owned investment holding subsidiary of the state-owned conglomerate China Resources.

Chai Wan warehouse is at 50 Ka Yip Street, and had a net book value of HK$2.28 billion at the end of last year, it said.

With a total gross floor area of 521,253 square feet, the property brought Kerry HK$45 million in net profit last year.

The Sha Tin warehouse at 36-42 Shan Mei Street New Territories has a total gross floor area of 404,374 sq ft, the filing showed.

It had a net book value of HK$1.46 billion last year and created an after-tax net profit of HK$113 million in 2021.

The deal is expected to be completed on or before June 30 and the related transaction costs would be HK$5 million, Kerry Properties said.

The estimated net proceeds from the disposal in the amount of about HK$4.62 billion will be used as general working capital, and an estimated gain of HK$883 million will be recorded upon completion, it said.

On the prevailing market conditions under the Covid-19 situation, the financial position of the group and the performance of the warehouses, the directors consider that the disposal presents an excellent opportunity for the company to unlock the value of the warehouses and enables it to recycle capital to strengthen its balance sheets and operations, the filing stated.

Given that the group has a diverse and robust property portfolio, Kerry Properties felt the disposal would have no material effect on its business and operations, said the filing.

They have earned over HK$3.5 billion following the sales of more than 400 homes last Friday.

In Tseung Kwan O, Kowloon Development (0034) has released the fifth price list for Manor Hill, offering 172 units starting from HK$5.04 million after discounts. The batch provides studio and one-bedroom homes ranging from 208 sq ft to 428 sq ft.

In Kai Tak, Wheelock Properties has sold at least six units at Monaco Marine, raking in HK$81.7 million.

Its Koko Hills in Lam Tin will launch sales of 96 flats today, including 80 on price lists and 16 by tender.

In Cheung Sha Wan, Grand Victoria II co-developed by Sino Land, Wheelock, and three others, will put 130 flats on the market tomorrow, including 76 on price lists and 54 via tender.

The 76 homes ranging from 278 sq ft to 807 sq ft are priced from HK$6.48 million to HK$22.66 million after discounts.

In Kowloon City, Country Garden (2007) has recorded at least 14 transactions for its Allegro, after putting 70 units up for sale.

In Tai Kok Tsui, at least 9 flats - a studio unit and 8 one-bedroom units - were sold over the weekend, which brought the developer Henderson Land Development (0012) over HK$54 million in contracted sales.

New projects across the city drew buyers from the secondary market over the weekend, resulting in a 21.4 percent decline in the top 10 housing estates with half of them recording no transaction, a property agency said.

Only 11 deals were seen over the weekend, but the number has remained in double-digit territory for the 10th week in a row, the real estate agency said.

An agent said that developers are relatively conservative in pricing to attract buyers, which inevitably slows down second-hand transactions.

The agent added that homeowners may need to further cut their asking prices in order to compete.

長沙灣「變天」激活商貿需求 新世界林浩文:料租售價穩步上揚

新世界近年在長沙灣區打造「甲廈商圈」,區內三甲廈項目提供樓面達220萬方呎,逾5成樓面將作長綫收租用途。其中,荔枝角道888號率先入伙,累售樓面約75%,餘下樓面傾向出售,但若作出租用途,意向呎租約30元起,同時約241個私人停車位現正放售,定價由200萬起。新世界發展資產及房地產組合管理總經理林浩文接受本報訪問時指出,長沙灣近年發展迅速「變天」,激活區內商貿需求,因區內優質甲廈供應罕有,料未來五年區內甲廈租售價穩步上揚。

私人停車位200萬起

林浩文指,集團旗下長沙灣荔枝角道888號,項目於2019年底開售,市場反應相當不俗,累售約75%樓面,以項目面積約58萬方呎計,售出樓面逾43萬方呎,近8成買家為用家或長綫投資者,買家包括金融、保險及大專等機構,當中較矚目買家包括南洋商業銀行及香港大學專業進修學院等知名機構,反映項目質素備受市場認同,平均成交呎價介乎1.5萬至1.7萬,項目待售單位多為優質物業,將採惜售態度,假如用作出租,意向呎租約30元起。

林氏亦指出,該項目約241個私人停車位於過去一個月於市場上放售,定價介乎200萬至220萬,市場反應相當熱烈。資料顯示,該項目於今年3月以1.428億沽出公眾停車場,涉及70個私家車位、15個輕型貨車位,每個車位成交價約168萬。

瓊林永康街項目明年底竣工

值得一提的是,該項目唯一零售鋪位,建築面積約500餘方呎,現正推出市場放租,目標租戶為優質食肆品牌,近期已頻獲多家商戶洽租查詢,租金處磋商階段。

林浩文指,早於上世紀六、七十年代,長沙灣區內以紡織及製衣業為主,惟近年區內有多個大型住宅新盤相繼落成,推動區內發展迅速「變天」,區內各項配套漸見成熟。

三甲廈項目涉220萬呎

至於同區瓊林街及永康街項目,最快明年第四季竣工,分別提供樓面約120萬及42萬方呎,集團於區內三商廈項目,合共提供樓面達220萬方呎,並逐步進入收成期,逾5成樓面將作長綫收租用途。

對於甲廈市場前景,林氏認為,儘管疫情持續發酵,惟優質甲廈物業需求殷切,長沙灣區內供應亦屬罕有,加上交通等配套因素支持,激活需求持續增長,故市場正處成長期,區內甲廈租售價將穩步上揚,料未來5年間升幅約5%。他續指出,集團早於2017年起購入該商業項目地皮,當時已瞄準未來大灣區發展,因長沙灣位處本港中心地段,有利項目用家及租戶往返機場及內地。

外資基金頻大手購工廈酒店 今年暫錄82億較去年同期升41%

今年以來,外資基金連番在港大手掃貨,根據本報統計,購入酒店及工廈各4宗,合共8宗,涉資共逾82億,較去年同期升41%,尤其酒店交投遠較去年暢旺。業界人士指,疫情下酒店受重擊,基金買家趁勢吸納,期待通關後,需求回復正常,租售價勢必上升;隨着物流及數據中心需求殷切,後市更備受看好。

今年以來市場暫錄6宗酒店買賣,基金佔4宗,涉資逾45億,市佔率73%,WEAVE LIVING夥拍安祖高頓一連購入大角嘴九龍珀麗酒店及西環華麗都會酒店,涉資各14.20億及9億;紅磡「逸.酒店」作價16.46億,油麻地CASA酒店5.9億成交,分別由兩家外資基金購入。

盼通關後酒店需求復常

今年最矚目工廈成交,為葵涌貨櫃碼頭路集運中心全幢,以約29億易手,每呎1.09萬,創區內工廈新高,更成為二手工廈高價指標,買家為美資基金Nuveen旗下Asia Pacific Cities Fund (APCF),該基金首度在港插旗,重手出擊令市場側目。

比較去年,外資基金ESR斥18億購入葵涌光輝凍倉,作價18億,呎價5445元;萬國數據亦以18億購入的中央工業大廈,呎價僅5294元,可見今年價格上升。

物流數據中心需求殷切

除了上述美資基金外,今年出手購入工廈,包括加拿大基金公司Brookfield Asset Management Inc,向興勝創建購入沙田工業中心單位及車位,涉資2.11億,新加坡基金SilkRoad Property Partners,亦購入荃灣大成大廈3全層,涉資1.8億。

去年同期,市場並未錄基金購酒店記錄,不過,基金於去年同期購入6項工廈,涉資逾48億,較今年逾37億為多;今年以來,基金購工廈及酒店共涉資82億,對比去年合共48億,按年升41%。

有代理表示,自從2019年中動亂以至疫情來襲,外資基金在港投資步伐減慢,不過,2020年中重新部署,至今表現活躍。

嘉里連沽2貨倉 共46億今年最大額

買家均為華潤物流 近年多番買工

工廈成為投資焦點,嘉里 (00683) 表示,以約46.2億元沽出旗下位於沙田及柴灣貨倉物業,買家均為華潤物流,成為今年最大額工廈買賣個案。

嘉里表示,與華潤物流達成協議,出售旗下嘉里 (沙田) 貨倉及嘉里 (柴灣) 貨倉兩項物業,作價分別23.3億及22.9億元,合共涉及約46.2億元。以成交價計,為今年最大金額買賣。

疫情影響貨倉營運 沽貨套現

嘉里指,考慮到新冠疫情下的現行市況,集團的財務狀況及貨倉的營運表現,董事認為出售事項為公司提供了絕佳機會釋放貨倉價值,並認為出售不會對集團業務及營運產生重大影響。

兩項物業均屬貨倉用途,嘉里 (沙田) 貨倉位於火炭山尾街36至42號,對面為近年入伙的駿洋邨。沙田貨倉樓高18層,總樓面面積約404,374平方呎。據了解,該物業現時出租率理想,呎租約12至14元,主要為物流行業租用。物業以23.3億元易手,呎價約5,762元。

柴灣貨倉作價22.9 呎售4393

另一物業為嘉里 (柴灣) 貨倉,物業位於柴灣嘉業街50號,樓高15層,總樓面約521,253平方呎。數年前,嘉里物流 (00636) 曾作出申請,計劃改裝柴灣貨倉為大型骨灰龕場,惟城規會指項目所在為活躍的作業海港,有貨倉及工業用途,與申請人提出的土地用途不協調,亦憂減少工業用地供應等,否決有關申請。

今次以物業22.9億元成交價計,呎價約4,393元。

是次兩項物業買家華潤物流,近兩年活躍於工廈市場,多次大手購入工廈,包括去年向鄧成波家族購入屯門及粉嶺工廈,涉及屯門東亞紗廠工業大廈第一期全幢,以及粉嶺安樂門街35至37號勉勵龍中心全幢,分別涉約22.42億及6.95億元,合共近30億元。如今再斥逾46億元,購入兩項物業,合共已斥逾75億元掃工廈作自用。

Most flats sell at Grand Mayfair project near Yuen Long, in sign Hongkongers prefer new homes over secondary market

Out of the 428 flats on offer at Grand Mayfair, 390 had been sold by the evening

Overall market sentiment was positive, says executive at Sino Land, one of the developers behind project

About 91 per cent of flats in a new development were snapped up by Hong Kong homebuyers on Friday, in a sign that the primary market was their preferred choice.

Out of the 428 flats on offer at Grand Mayfair near Yuen Long, which has been developed by Sino Land, K Wah International and China Overseas Land and Investment, 390 had been sold by 5.30pm, according to agents. Sales as of 4pm stood at about HK$3.5 billion (US$445.9 million), the developers’ spokeswoman said.

Buyers were “optimistic about the Northern Metropolis development and its huge opportunities, seeking the concept of having innovation in northern Hong Kong and finance on the southern side”, Victor Tin, group associate director of sales at Sino Land, said in a statement.

“The response was overwhelming,” he said, adding that the project might have extra units to offer later. “The Hong Kong stock market performed well today as well, up nearly 600 points, and the overall market sentiment was positive.”

The response to Grand Mayfair came despite rising interest and unemployment rates, and buyers were tempted by its transport links and growth potential.

Moreover, Friday’s sale was for the first round of the project’s phase two. Overall, the developers have earned more than HK$10.1 billion from close to 1,100 flats in three weeks, which made it the most popular project this year, according to the spokeswoman.

The project’s phase one was the fastest-selling new property development over the past four years, after first phase of Kwun Tong’s Grand Central in December 2018, where 871 units were sold within six days for more than HK$10.6 billion. During two rounds of sales for Grand Mayfair’s phase one in early May, 710 flats – or 99 per cent of the offering – worth HK$6.6 billion were sold in six days.

“The primary market has a wide offering with restrained pricing that considers the impact of the pandemic,” a property agent said. Buyers have benefited the most, “diverting buying power to the primary market”, the agent added.

“This month, sentiment in the second-hand market declined … mainly due to the impact of interest rate hikes in the United States, stock market fluctuations and an increase in owners’ asking prices,” the agent said.

A property agency said that one buyer had bought two flats for HK$14.47 million. The agency expected the overall number of new homes sold in May to climb to a five-month high of about 1,400.

On Friday, prices started at HK$6.25 million for a 352 sq ft flat. The average price worked out at HK$18,326 per square foot, after a discount of 16 per cent. That was about 2.4 per cent lower than the HK$18,777 per square foot seen in the previous round, and 8.7 per cent lower than the prevailing secondary market price of HK$20,062 per square foot at Ocean Pride in Tsuen Wan West, according the agency’s data.

Friday’s sale drew 4,050 registrations of intent, which meant about nine buyers were competing for each unit. A middle-aged investor surnamed Chu, who bought a two-bedroom flat for about HK$10 million for investment, dismissed headwinds such as the US interest rate rises.

Meanwhile, HSBC said it would offer a cash reward of up to HK$6,888 for customers taking out green mortgages for the second phase of Grand Mayfair. Green mortgages involve banks or mortgage lenders offering preferential terms to a homebuyers if they can demonstrate that the property for which they are borrowing meets certain environmental standards.

The bank also offered prizes such as a Tesla Model Y and HSBC-themed Octopus cards to drum up more business as part of the promotion, which runs up to the end of the year.

H&M轉軚 短租尖沙咀舖

H&M時裝位於新港中心兩層複式巨舖,租約在日內到期,品牌近日進行清貨,並在店內張貼即將遷出信息。惟在遷出前剛取得突破性進展,業主及租客決定以短租形式續一年合約,H&M暫維持該店業務。

H&M回應指,原先計劃日內正式遷出,而新近與業主達成協議,惟未有透露涉及年期及租金。消息指,是次續約為期僅1年,相信讓業主及租客雙方觀察疫情及市況變化,一年後再作決定。

H&M於2008年以約700萬元租用該舖,面積達4.8萬平方呎,期間數度續約,據悉高峰期月租曾逾千萬元。不過,隨着旅客消費減少,舖租已有所回落,而兩年前疫情爆發嚴重衝擊零售市道,令品牌一度打算棄租。
