去中環化持續空置率5年高

2019年商廈整體租金向下,有代理統計顯示,在去中環化加快下,中區空置率升至5年高位。

據代理數據顯示,上月各區甲廈租金普遍向下,中環租金跌勢持續,傳統商廈及超甲廈租金按月跌約1%,而金鐘區跌3.1%,為港島區最高。九龍區尖沙咀、東九龍等,均呈現下跌,全港僅港島東較平穩。

中環全年租金跌14%

總括2019年,整體中環商廈租金跌14.3%,而超甲廈跌幅更高見18.7%,為各區之冠,而灣仔及銅鑼灣,全年跌逾7%。受惠於去中環化加快,港島東租金逆市向上,全年升幅為2.4%,另租務較旺的港島東,跌幅約3.6%。代理指,目前各區空置率向上,包括中環3.4%、金鐘5.6%、灣仔5%,以及銅鑼灣4.1%,各區為近5年最高。

近日整體商廈租務不算活躍,市場消息指出,中環交易廣場112樓全層,面積約1.3萬平方呎,獲廣發銀行承租,屬近月較少出現中資租用本港超甲級商廈。據了解,該集團於香港設有辦公室,惟樓面面積較細,如今擴充業務,租用全層樓面。是次成交呎租約140元。據悉,該廈為中環指標商廈之一,去年高峰期呎租高見160170元,如今租金回調約15%

宏利擴充租觀塘全層

非核心區租務相對理想,市場消息稱,領展00823 旗下觀塘商廈項目海濱匯,錄得全層租務成交,涉及物業11樓,樓面面積約5.2萬平方呎,每平方呎租金約30元,新租客為宏利保險。項目樓高23層,去年入伙,出租面積近90萬平方呎,據悉出租率逾7成。

近期保險業有所擴充,友邦保險洽租尖東海港城港威大廈全層2.5萬呎,呎租約60元,消息指,尖沙咀港威大廈錄得全層租務,涉及永明金融大樓高層全層,面積約2.5萬平方呎,獲友邦保險積極洽租,估計呎租水平約60元。

代理指,2020年整體商廈租務暫仍未活躍,機構採取觀望態度,而在控制成本下,呎租100元或以下的中環商廈,仍獲不少機構垂青。

Hong Kong, hurt by US-China trade war, protests, replaced by Tokyo as Asia-Pacific’s largest commercial real-estate market in 2019

Hong Kong is no longer the largest commercial real-estate market in Asia-Pacific, having lost its crown to Tokyo in 2019, data and analytics firm Real Capital Analytics said on Thursday.

Tokyo and Seoul took the first two spots. In 2018, they were in second and third spots, behind Hong Kong.

“After experiencing years of strong rental and capital value growth, Hong Kong’s property market is entering a downward phase while the local economy faces pressure from both external and internal volatility and tensions,” a managing director from an international agency firm said.

Since June, the city has been rocked by its worst political crisis in decades, with anti-government protests hurting Hong Kong’s tourism and retail sectors in particular. It was also affected by the US-China trade war, which weighed on trade and investment activity.

In the next 12 months, Hong Kong is likely to be a buyers’ market, with property prices returning to a more reasonable level. This, in turn, will prompt investors to seize opportunities and seek huge discounts.

“Affluent investors and institutional funds are also eyeing opportunities presented by distressed sales of assets,” the agent said.

Business activity in Hong Kong has also been affected by the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, which will have “short-term implications on investment volume”, according to another property consultancy. The company added that, with the exception of 2018, owing to a one-off large commercial property deal in Hong Kong, Tokyo had always been the largest commercial real-estate market in Asia-Pacific.

“Funds across the region have raised capital in the past two years, which they are looking for somewhere to deploy. Japan is an attractive destination because of the depth and the breadth of its market, as well as low interest costs,” property consultant said Pacific.

The Japanese capital is likely to remain an investors’ darling as demand is expected to continue to outstrip supply, particularly when it comes to offices.

“In Tokyo’s office market, asset performance remains solid. A near-term increase in pre-commitments already exceeding 70 per cent of 2020 supply has reduced vacancy, keeping the average rental growth around 3 per cent,” the agent said.

Meanwhile, domestic investors had ramped up activity in Seoul’s commercial property, which had “more than tripled in the period”, a commercial real estate analytics company said. “Investment momentum in Seoul has been building for some time,” it said.

Sydney remains the fourth-largest commercial market in the region, while Beijing has leapt three notches to take the fifth spot. “The metro [Beijing] registered a record year for income-producing deal activity and climbed into fifth place,” it said.
