The retaining walls on the left look kind of haphazard. Did SHKP fail to get a permit to build an exclusive marina for the complex?

The developers doesn't own the land along the waterfront where the shipyard is today; but as the shipyard is closing, they propose to convert the land to become a "public" park at the end of the road there separated from the island major activities and the existing promenade in attempt to make it become "private."

Nice cladding but this complex is just over-priced. Not to mention their horrible ad on TV marvelling at a western lifestyle which you will NEVER find in Larvotto

People in Shum Wan on the other side of the typhoon shelter actually hate the cladding. The buildings face east and the facade reflects sunlight back to South Wave Court and Broadview Court every sun-shining morning.

These developers only place their own interest at the top and couldn't care less about how others are affected...

At least the cladding isn't really concave or they'll start burning other houses

Kerry unit targets HK$10b in sales after hefty profits
18 March 2011
SCMP

Kerry Properties aims to sell HK$10 billion worth of properties in Hong Kong and in the mainland after it reported a 59 per cent increase in underlying full-year profit.

For the year to December, it said core earnings were HK$3.4 billion, driven by strong property sales in Hong Kong.

Taking into account a HK$2.9 billion revaluation gain on investment properties, net profit was HK$6.31 billion, up 44 per cent from the a year earlier. Turnover for the year to December rose 64 per cent to HK$21.22 billion. A final dividend of 52 HK cents was declared, up 30 per cent from 2009.

Net profit from the Hong Kong property division was HK$3.91 billion, inclusive of a HK$1.95 billion revaluation gain on investment properties. In the period, it launched Island Crest in Sai Ying Pun and Larvotto, a joint venture with Sun Hung Kai Properties in Ap Lei Chau. Its mainland property division recorded underlying profit down 0.6 per cent to HK$641 million last year.

Net earnings from logistics network division rose 33 per cent to HK$797 million, while infrastructure division was HK$82 million, increased 17.14 per cent from 2009.

Louis Wong, chief financial officer, said the developer planned to offer 1.8 million square feet of real estate in the mainland and 750,000 sq ft in Hong Kong this year. It raised contract sales target by 17 per cent to HK$10 billion this year, from HK$8.5 billion in 2009, he said.

Commenting on the mainland property market, president and chief executive Wong Siu-kong said home sales volumes declined significantly after restrictions were imposed on home purchases and required higher down payments.

"Lower prices were seen in selected second-tier cities but have not yet spread to first-tier cities. It will take another three to six months to assess the impact of austerity measures on the market," he said.

In January, the central government announced measures to curb property demand. It raised down payments to 60 per cent of the price from 50 per cent and increased restrictions on buying second homes.

Mainlanders are barred from buying a third house if they own more than two properties in the city in which they are a resident. And a property tax was launched in Shanghai and Chongqing.

Wong said the developer would release housing projects in Hangzhou, Chengdu and Changsha which mainly cater to end-users.

In Hong Kong, executive director Steven Ho Shut-kan said Kerry was interested in three residential sites in Hung Hom released for auction and tendering on Wednesday.

He believed home prices were unlikely to fall significantly, pointing out Kerry's plan to release its residential project, Lions Rise in Wong Tai Sin, at an asking price of HK$10,000 per sq ft in the second quarter.

Kerry Properties shares fell 1.44 per cent to HK$37.55.

Kerry Properties is part of the Kerry Group, the controlling shareholder of the SCMP Group, which publishes the South China Morning Post.

A parking space sold for HK$2M, gained HK$0.47 in less than 3 months.

南灣車位200萬轉手 創區內新高價成交
(2011年08月19日)

在需求大於供應下,車位同樣有價有市,由新地(016)為首發展的鴨脷洲南灣(圖),再錄車位轉手個案,成交價高見200萬元,創區內新高價。根據土地註冊處資料,南灣6樓單號車位,業主於今年3月以153萬元購入,於上月以200萬元售出,持貨不足4個月,帳面賺47萬元。資料顯示,屋苑暫錄5宗車位轉手紀錄,當中包括一個傷殘人士車位,原業主帳面獲利25.3萬元。中原盧鏡豪表示,區內以南灣車位售價最高,但因供應量少,罕有單獨放售;同區海怡半島亦剛錄一宗車位買賣,位於2期,成交價99萬元,亦屬理想價。
