蛋糕店月租18萬進駐海防道

核心零售區地舖空置率高企,業主亦接受現實大幅減租。位處尖沙咀海防道及漢口道交界的單邊舖位,過去一年接連只獲租客短租,最新終獲商戶長租,由蛋糕店以每月18萬元承租,租金較之前一份長約租金銳減七成。

原卓悅舊舖 跌價七成

屬於尖沙咀一線地段的海防道,年內已有不少舖位空置,原由本地化妝品連鎖店卓悅 (00653) 租用的海防道45號地下,建築面積約818方呎,卓悅原租約月租60萬元,本已於去年9月到期,但因未有新租戶承租,卓悅遂以每月30萬元短租至今年3月,繼續在原址經營。但今年初新冠肺炎疫情爆發,零售進一步跌入谷底,卓悅在3月後未有再租用。在丟空約一個月後,舖位獲出售餐具碗碟的「缸瓦佬」短租,月租較卓悅短租價下降56.7%,至13萬元,租約至本月底屆滿。

據了解,舖位今年初開始以每月35萬元放長租,在短租期內亦未有降價,隨着短租客租期臨近屆滿,而本地零售業未見起色,業主亦擴闊議租空間,近期終以每月18萬元租出,呎租約220元,新租戶為蛋糕店,雖然租金較「缸瓦佬」短租價回升5萬元或38.5%,卻比卓悅原先長租約60萬元低70%。事實上,卓悅自2011年10月起承租上址,2014年月租最高曾達120萬元,最新租金與6年前相比,跌幅更達85%。

中達大廈地舖短租20.8

同一地段海防道38至40號中達大廈地下A及B舖,建築面積約2100方呎,去年11月起丟空,至今年1月初即疫情開始前,獲時裝店以每月30萬元短租逾半年,已在近月遷出。據悉,舖位剛由口罩專門店短租兩個月,雖然都屬短租個案,但月租較9個月前下跌30.7%,至最新僅20.8萬元,呎租約99元。此舖原由金行粵港澳湛周生生承租,在2017年底續租時月租130萬元,如今租金蒸發84%。

中環萬邦行地舖 麵包店35萬承租

疫情下租金回調 較高峰期跌7成

疫情下中環舖位租金大幅回調,漸見民生商戶承接。皇后大道中萬邦行地下一舖位,獲麵包店以約35萬元租用,舖位對上租客為錶行,月租約70萬元,租金跌逾半,較高峰期更低7成。

市場消息指,中環萬邦行地下錄得一宗新租務成交,涉及舖位面積約1,540平方呎,以每月約35萬元租出,呎租約227元。該舖位於中環皇后大道中核心地段,對面為娛樂行並鄰近港鐵站出口。據了解,新租客為本地飲食集團,將開設麵包店,由於舖位面積較大,預計除了售賣麵包外,亦會推出蛋糕、特色小食等。

翻查資料,該舖因位處核心旺段,在零售高峰期時以高價租出。物業早年曾獲中藥店北京同仁堂租用,2011年品牌在約滿前為保據點,加租5成至約120萬元,呎租達779元。

數年前北京同仁堂棄租後,舖位獲鐘錶店以約70萬元租用,今年該錶店亦遷出,舖位交吉多月後,獲麵包店租用。以最新約35萬元月租計,較對上租金跌約5成,若與高峰相比,新租金平7成。

中環空置率 升至16.9%

據代理資料顯示,疫情下中環、銅鑼灣、尖沙咀及旺角4大核心區,第三季商舖空置率上升;而中環空置率由第二季12.7%,升至第三季16.9%。目前該區商舖呎租約395元,今年累跌40.8%。事實上,皇后大道中目前尚有不少吉舖待租,包括鄰近萬邦行華人行,地下兩大舖位原由Swatch旗下品牌租用,數月前突遷出,現業主仍在放租。

近期整體租務活動略好轉,核心區主要地段錄得商舖租務成交,亦因舖租大幅回調,最近漸見民生商戶重返核心區。

以銅鑼灣為例,希慎廣場對出的啟超道及恩平道先後錄新租務。其中恩平道50號地下,面積700平方呎,獲便利店以約25萬元租用。舖位原由莎莎化粧品租用,月租約65萬元,去年品牌遷出,僅由手機配件店以10萬元短租。按是次便利店25萬元租金計,跌逾6成。

北角3重建項目 新增樓面逾140萬呎

屬於傳統住宅區的北角區,近年有不少收購重建,當中獲新世界發展 (00017)  完成收購的前皇都戲院大廈,有望展開保育及重建方案,若作商業發展,最多可提供逾54萬平方呎樓面。

皇都戲院大廈 保留文藝特色

現時屬於一級歷史建築的前皇都戲院大廈,位於英皇道271至291號,由皇都戲院、住宅大廈及商場所組成,新世界日前成功以約47.76億元透過強制拍賣統一業權,創歷來最貴的舊樓強拍。由於前皇都戲院頗具建築特色,並且屬於一級歷史建築,發展商計劃保留整個戲院建築及天台桁架,重塑戲院部分成為文化藝術表演場所,而比鄰的住宅大廈則有望展開重建。

該物業面積約3.62萬平方呎,規劃用途為「商業/住宅」,再加上屬於「舊契」地皮,發展商可以彈性重建成為商廈或者住宅。若作住宅發展,地積比率最高10倍,可建樓面約36.2萬平方呎。至於作為商業發展,項目的地積比率更會多達15倍,可建樓面逾54萬平方呎。由於發展商計劃保留前皇都戲院的部分,預計會影響可以重建地盤的範圍。

恒隆地產 (00101) 等亦正在重建電氣道226至240號舊樓地盤,項目佔地約7,000平方呎,將重建成1幢商業及辦公大樓,總樓面約10.5萬平方呎,項目預算總投資額約25.6億元,以此計算,投資額每平方呎約2.4萬元。

據資料顯示,電氣道226至240號屬於8幢相連的舊樓,在多年前已經開始獲財團收購,包括電氣道230號全幢於2013年2月以約1億元易手;至於電氣道238至240號以每伙約860萬至約1,817萬元不等作收購。

水務署大樓 港島東最大型商業地

另外,位於英皇道611號的北角水務署大樓,政府將北角水務署大樓連同灣仔的水務署總部,以及懲教署總部一併遷入柴灣區盛泰道作重置,預計將於2020年動工,2024年可落成,而水務署大樓用地可釋放作商業發展。而該地現時已改劃為商業用途,佔地約5.06萬平方呎,估計可重建樓面約75.9萬平方呎,將為港島東區罕有的大型商業地供應。

而上述三個重建項目預計可望提供最多140.7萬平方呎的樓面供應,有望加快舊區的蛻變及轉型。

代理指,上述放售單位間隔實用,適合作寫字樓用途,現租戶將承租至2022年,租金回報逾3厘,屬不俗水平;據代理資料顯示,該商廈近期成交於去年3月,當時該13樓A室,面積1123方呎,以988萬售出,每呎造價約8798元。

Hong Kong’s mid-sized developers seek to create markets in unlikely niches to survive city’s worst economic slump on record

Far East Consortium Limited, the biggest operator of three-star hotels in Hong Kong, launched 4,500 safe deposit boxes at the basement of its Silka Far East Hotel in Tsuen Wan

Kowloon Development, a developer of tiny flats in Hong Kong, recently diversified into mass retailing

Hong Kong’s real estate developers, particularly mid-sized companies that rely on a narrow segment for their sales, are diversifying their product offerings to find potential revenue in new market niches to help them survive the city’s worst recession on record.

Some of them are developing data centres, while others are expanding into industrial facilities and self-storage warehouses, said Maggie Hu, an associate professor of finance and real estate at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Mid-sized developers are particularly vulnerable to the adverse impact of the business downturn in Hong Kong, giving them a bigger incentive than large, cash-rich companies in adapting to changing needs of the market.

“(They) are often much less diversified in their assets and types of income streams, [so] diversification is more important and imperative for them to navigate through the crisis,” Hu said. “Different types of real estate assets are affected by the pandemic in different ways. Self-storage facilities, industrial facilities and data centres have faced much less declines than malls, lodging, hotel and housing.”

Hotels and shopping centres are bearing the brunt of Hong Kong’s economic slump as the number of tourists in the city began to dwindle last year following the massive street protests that rocked Hong Kong, and further reduced by the Covid-19 pandemic that led to travel restrictions. Falling retail sales caused rental charges to slip, forcing some luxury retailers to shut outlets and drove Russell Street in Causeway Bay off the perch as the world’s most expensive retail strip.

Far East Consortium Limited, the biggest operator of three-star hotels in Hong Kong, is going into the business of providing private vaults for customers to store their valuables. The operator of the Dorsett hotels in Wan Chai and Kwun Tong launched 4,500 safe deposit boxes in a private vault measuring 3,000 square feet (279 square metres) at the basement of its Silka Far East Hotel in Tsuen Wan, converting space that previously hosted a foot massage parlour, and a bank vault.

Kowloon Development, a developer of tiny flats in Hong Kong, recently diversified into mass retailing, with the 2,000-sq ft Soda Mall that features a supermarket and a grocery store for health foods.

“We see great potential in this segment, [because] banks are downsizing their operations” offering safe deposit boxes, said Chris Hoong, managing director of Far East. “Generally you have to wait six to seven years to get a safe-deposit box, depending on the location.”

The customers aimed for by Far East Vault are the residents living close to the hotel in Tsuen Wan, Hoong said, adding that in Hong Kong, the small flats mean little space for valuable items that are hardly used or worn every day.

“We have some space in our hotel in the basement in Silka …, and we decided the best way to utilise the space is to put up a safe-deposit box [business],” Hoong said. “Depends on how this one goes, we need a year to observe, at least a year before making a decision whether to start a new one.”

So far, the company is getting 20 inquiries a day. With the smallest box available for HK$218 (US$28) a month, Far East expects the private vault business to yield an income that is comparable to revenues coming from a small hotel with 100 rooms.

The business model is responding to an unmet demand in the city, property agent said.

“We do see that demand for safe deposit boxes has always been present in Hong Kong, but sadly the supply has never been able to meet the demand,” the agent said. “Given the high security and loading specification requirements, as well as larger space required, specifically basement or ground floor areas, suitable space for private vaults and safety deposit boxes is extremely limited.”

Locations outside Hong Kong’s core business and retail districts are also ideal for a private vault business, agent said.

“Even now, with the rentals having dropped significantly in core districts, it hasn’t reached the point where this business can be sustainable on the high street level,” agent said. “For residential areas, where the rental decline is rather mild, it remains challenging to find a location that fits the technical requirements and caters to local demand.”
