Hong Kong's luxury hotel category is to be redefined with the opening of Harbour Grand Hong Kong, Harbour Plaza Hotels & Resorts' new five-star hotel, in spring 2009.

This newly built splendid hotel represents Harbour Plaza Hotels & Resorts' first finest luxury category, an entirely innovative concept in the arena of luxury hospitality. The Harbour Grand category offers exceptional accommodation, impeccable service and unsurpassed hospitality for business and leisure travellers with the most discerning tastes.

Announcing the opening of Harbour Grand in spring next year, Group Managing Director of Harbour Plaza Hotels & Resorts Mr Raymond Chow said Harbour Grand Hong Kong would further strengthen the hotel group's hotel portfolio.

"The opening of Harbour Grand Hong Kong in spring next year is opportune as Hong Kong sees a quantum growth of visitors in recent years, both business and individual travellers," Mr Chow said.

The newly developed prestigious 41-storey hotel boasts a total of 828 elegantly designed guest rooms and suites, 12,685-square-foot of meeting and banquet facilities, and five restaurants and bars featuring culinary excellence of world-famed cuisines, all meticulously fashioned to provide refined accommodation, facilities and amenities for the most elite of business and leisure travellers.

Designed with the balance of sophistication and modern simplicity, the guest rooms are the combination of latest technology and distinctive comfort, with all featuring LCD TVs, wired and wireless broadband Internet access, DVD players and bathrooms with rainforest showerheads and oversized bathtubs.

Perfectly situated in the midst of fashionable shopping centres and commercial offices in Causeway Bay, Wanchai and Central, Harbour Grand Hong Kong is also within walking distance to the convenient underground transportation system. Hotel shuttle services are regularly scheduled to take guests to major local destinations, making it an ease to go around the town.

"Harbour Grand Hong Kong will be a stunning addition to the city's skyline. Its modern sensibility and stylish flair craft an exceptional experience. It redefines luxury hospitality.

"It is exceptional, for the exceptionals," Mr Chow said.

Harbour Grand Hong Kong is the latest addition to Hutchison Whampoa's hotel group, which manages seven properties in Hong Kong, namely, Harbour Plaza Hong Kong, Harbour Plaza Metropolis, Harbour Plaza North Point, The Kowloon Hotel, Harbour Plaza Resort City, Rambler Oasis Hotel, Rambler Garden Hotel, as well as Harbour Plaza Chongqing in Mainland China and the Our Lucaya resort in the Bahamas.

Designed to allure the most demanding travellers, private outdoor heated Jacuzzi is available in some of the 231 suites. To cater for the long staying guests, 85 of the suites are fitted with modern pantries.

Occupying over 6,200 square feet of meeting and banquet space, the pillarless Grand Ballroom is proud to possess a ceiling height of over 19 feet, exuding the grandeur of its class. Eight function rooms from 450 to 1,050 square feet offer the flexibility for a variety of events.

Dynasty an attraction on the waterfront
24 October 2008
South China Morning Post

Sino Group has aggressively expanded its property portfolio in Tsuen Wan, with The Dynasty being the latest project put up for public sale.

The Dynasty, jointly developed with the Urban Renewal Authority (URA), involves 256 flats in two towers due for completion next year. The project has attracted an encouraging response since its launch early this month and, as of October 19, about 90 units had been sold.

Another large residential development, Vision City, also a joint venture between Sino and URA in Tsuen Wan, provides 1,466 units in five towers. The majority of flats have been sold and only about 40 remain available.

Sino also built the Citywalk mall, a popular shopping and entertainment destination for families and young shoppers, in the district.

Salenda Lau, general manager of sales and marketing at Sino Group, said there was tremendous potential for growth and development in Tsuen Wan as transport and infrastructure improved.

"We see a new Tsuen Wan taking shape. The Kowloon Southern Link is expected to come into service next year, which will make it just a 13-minute journey from Tsuen Wan to Kowloon West MTR station. To Tsim Sha Tsui, it will take only 15 minutes," she said.

Ms Lau said The Dynasty was strategically located in the heart of an integrated city development that included apartments, hotels, grade-A commercial buildings and retail shopping centres.

This kind of project would present similar advantages to those of the comprehensive property development in Kowloon station and would attract quality buyers, tenants and shoppers, she said.

The Dynasty is another waterfront residential development by Sino following its successful One SilverSea project in West Kowloon. The project has a residents' clubhouse spanning more than 80,000 sq ft.

Ms Lau said the standard units of The Dynasty had been sold at an average price of about HK$6,200 per sq ft. The special units of Dynasty Garden, Dynasty Villa and Dynasty Dream were available at higher prices.

The Dynasty units feature a generous floor-to-floor height of 3.5 metres, much better than the normal 2.8 metres for ordinary flats on the market, she said.

"We have found very strong support from end-users. In the past week, we had units sold every day. Many of the buyers are upgraders wishing to move into bigger flats. They are cash-rich and often prefer to complete the purchase by immediate payment," she said.

"In addition to people already living in Tsuen Wan, about 40 per cent of buyers came from other areas such as West Kowloon, Causeway Bay and North Point. That is very encouraging. Home buyers are very selective now and they really care about the quality of property."

Ms Lau said there was a tendency for buyers to choose four-bedroom units, which were difficult to find in the district, due to the strong upgrading demand.

She expects to see a stable residential market, believing the prevailing low interest rates and a limited supply of new flats will continue to support demand.

Standard units at The Dynasty measure 972 to 1,739 sq ft. Dynasty Garden units come with a garden space of 185 to 1,165 sq ft.

Dynasty Villa units are from 2,041 to 2,083 sq ft with a garden space of 950 to 1,064 sq ft while Dynasty Dream duplex units measure 2,953 to 2,963 sq ft with a roof garden of 2,251 to 2,282 sq ft.

Ms Lau said The Dynasty was also attractive to investors looking for longer-term gains.

The Dynasty units are expected to generate good rental returns, considering that the apartments of Vision City currently fetch a monthly rental of up to HK$25 per sq ft, she said.

Vision City, which features a residents' clubhouse of about 180,000 sq ft, has attracted tenants of different nationalities. Standard units measure 668 to 1,696 sq ft.

Ms Lau said the remaining units at Vision City were mainly two-bedroom to four-bedroom apartments on the high floors of 668 to 1,380 sq ft. These units command open views to the sea as well as surrounding landscape and cityscape.

She said the Citywalk retail complex featuring a mix of local and international retailers had added fun and excitement to the shopping experience and increased the overall appeal of Tsuen Wan to people looking for a life of quality.

梁啟智﹕市區重建的異想天開
10月25日 星期六 05:05

【明報專訊】市區重建局提出復修旺角上海街和太子道西的兩列戰前唐樓,大搞「大眾食街」和「文藝花墟」,圖以「保育」之名博取市民的掌聲。然而許多一直監察市建局工作的朋友都不大領情,認為此計劃只是「假保育」。筆者理解這種指控,卻同時希望指出要做到「真保育」,在現有的體制下困難重重。

表面上看,相對於市建局過往的推土式重建,計劃有兩個可取之處。首先,發展將以復修而非拆卸重建主導,原有的建築特色得以保留。再者,發展將不包括興建大商場和摩天豪宅,不會嚴重增加該區人口密度。從這兩點來看,此計劃較許多其他的市建局項目優勝。

提尋求「真保育」另類方案

然而從社區發展的角度出發,卻不見得有多大的改進。過往剷平喜帖街之舉受到非議,不單因為拆毁了灣仔區僅餘的完整唐樓群,更是破壞了區內印刷商戶賴以為生的行業聚集。

現時於上海街一帶也聚集了不少專營建材用品的店戶,是旺角區其中一個相當有趣的小商圈。市建局對他們將會因計劃而被強迫遷離,似乎未見有特別照顧,難怪朱凱迪將計劃批為「強制收購+翻新+搞噱頭商業發展」。

筆者理解「假保育」的批評,卻不確定在現有的客觀體制條件之下,市建局有可能做到一個百分百完美、滿足各方要求的「真保育」。在此我們不妨來個大膽假設,提出一個尋求「真保育」的另類方案,且看是否可能實現。

最簡單的做法,是讓所有原住客可以選擇在復修或重建後遷回原址,在相同大小的單位中繼續生活。這樣,利東街的印刷店、花園街的運動用品店,還有上海街的建材店,便統統都可以留下來。而在區內活了數十年的老街坊,也不用因重建而各散東西。

這個看起來最能保存社區脈絡的做法,卻會導致許多嚴重問題。首先,復修或重建後的單位的帳面價值將以倍數增加,業主將有極大的誘因將單位出售。如是者,社區脈絡同樣會蕩然無存,納稅人卻間接資助了原業主發財,製造嚴重的道德風險。這個出發點本來相當善良的做法,將會使重建區變成潛在金礦,引來更多的財團插旗落釘,擾亂區內原有的社會秩序,使原要保存的社區脈絡在市建局來臨前就被毁滅。

此方案的另一個問題,則是誰來付鈔。要做到「一呎換一呎」,市建局無可避免地要把重建後的摩天豪宅建得更高,以售樓收入來抵消復修或重建的成本。然而市民大眾已不想再見到山脊線被竹籤樓穿插,海岸線被屏風樓阻擋,此一進路只會換來環保組織的抗議。雖說市建局在個別的項目中有利可圖,然而在整體需要自負盈虧的基礎下,仍難以從根本上改變現行的重建模式。

要滿足所有人的要求,筆者只得來個異想天開,假設市建局可如社會福利署 一樣每年獲得撥款,使其重建計劃的社會承擔可以毋須因財務承擔而犧牲。這樣,設計一個可以既容許原住客選擇重建後有條件遷回原址,而又毋須興建摩天豪宅以填補重建成本的方案,才有可能出現。這個假設,說穿了就是把市區重建的成本轉到公眾的身上,期望納稅人把提升社會整體的居住質素看成與教育和醫療對等,同樣值得庫房每年投放公共資源。

市區重建策略的檢討尚有一年多才完成,筆者期望輿論可以在監察市建局個別項目的執行之餘,為背後的價值判斷和難題來個公眾大辯論。香港有一千多平方公里的空間,是個既定的事實。在不填海、不威脅郊區生態、不興建屏風樓、不挑戰丁權、不增加交通壓力,和不能與視樓價如命根的中產作對的前提下,如何能同時減低城市密度和增加居住空間,讓不分貧富也能安居樂業,既需要將心比心的人文關懷,也需要通盤分析的制度思考。

元朗明渠變清溪川觸礁
22/10/2008



渠 務 署 將 元 朗 明 渠 變 身 成 世 界 聞 名 的 南 韓 清 溪 川 的 計 劃 觸 礁 。 該 署 委 託 顧 問 公 司 研究 報 告 指 出 , 香 港 暴 雨 急 速 , 元 朗 明 渠 的 洪 水 可 於 大 雨 後 十 數 分 鐘 內 暴 漲 , 開 放 水道 對 市 民 構 成 危 險 , 而 在 明 渠 內 進 行 大 規 模 綠 化 或 美 化 , 亦 會 阻 礙 水 流 , 影 響 排 洪能 力 , 將 明 渠 改 成 清 溪 川 的 計 劃 不 可 行 。 有 區 議 員 對 研 究 結 果 深 表 失 望 , 批 評 渠 務署 當 初 選 址 過 於 草 率 , 令 改 善 計 劃 最 終 「 雷 聲 大 雨 點 小 」 。

貫 通 元 朗 市中 心 的 元 朗 明 渠 建 於 六 十 年 代 , 原 屬 天 然 河 道 , 由 於 臭 味 嚴 重 , 渠 務 署 去 年 委 聘 顧問 , 以 元 朗 明 渠 為 試 點 , 研 究 參 考 南 韓 市 中 心 清 溪 川 , 將 混 凝 土 河 道 綠 化 還 原 為 天然 河 道 , 開 放 讓 公 眾 進 出 玩 水 。 該 計 劃 備 受 港 府 重 視 , 發 展 局 局 長 林 鄭 月 娥 早 前 曾到 元 朗 明 渠 實 地 視 察 。

雨 後 暴 漲 危 險 污 染 難 根 治
不 過 , 顧 問 公 司 初 步 研 究 發 現 , 由 於 元 朗明 渠 洪 水 於 暴 雨 後 急 漲 , 開 放 水 道 危 及 市 民 安 全 。 明 渠 改 建 為 綠 化 河 道 , 更 會 令 排洪 能 力 下 降 , 無 法 抵 禦 五 十 年 一 遇 的 大 暴 雨 , 增 加 整 個 元 朗 市 水 浸 風 險 。

顧 問 又 指 , 元 朗 明 渠 水 質 污 染 嚴 重 , 原 因 涉 及 豬 場 非 法 排 放 污 水 等 。 顧 問 認 為 , 即使 以 截 流 或 污 水 處 理 等 辦 法 , 也 不 能 即 時 根 治 問 題 , 相 信 需 要 一 段 頗 長 時 間 始 可 全面 改 善 水 質 , 鄰 近 居 民 未 來 仍 要 受 臭 味 困 擾 。

顧 問 建 議 斥 資 三 億 八 千 多 萬 元 分 階 段 為 全 長 十 二 公 里 的 元 朗 明 渠 進 行 改 善 , 率 先 進行 的 是 市 中 心 段 , 顧 問 提 出 挖 深 及 改 造 現 有 混 凝 土 渠 底 , 建 造 一 條 闊 五 至 十 米 的 彎曲 河 道 , 河 底 鋪 設 碎 石 等 天 然 物 料 , 改 善 水 生 態 , 牆 身 添 置 壁 畫 等 。 顧 問 又 建 議 於河 道 注 入 元 朗 污 水 處 理 廠 的 再 生 水 源 , 確 保 有 流 動 水 注 入 , 工 程 費 一 億 四 千 萬 元 ,每 年 運 作 成 本 四 百 萬 元 。

人 流 較 少 的 下 游 、 東 西 渠 及 上 游 河 段 , 亦 擬 進 行 美 化 工 程 , 包 括 將 東 西 渠 下 游 改 為 暗 渠 及 綠 化 等 , 涉 款 共 約 二 億 四 千 多 萬 元 。

渠 務 署 發 言 人 解 釋 , 政 府 當 初 進 行 研 究 時 , 已 表 明 有 關 改 善 計 劃 不 能 影 響 排 洪 及 安 全 , 又 強 調 清 溪 川 方 案 只 屬 考 慮 方 案 之 一 。

元 朗 區 議 員 黃 偉 賢 不 滿 政 府 一 直 吹 噓 元 朗 明 渠 改 善 計 劃 , 令 居 民 抱 很 大 期 望 , 但 結 果 得 個 「 吉 」 , 炮 轟 政 府 做 事 不 切 實 際 。

HK Space Museum to unfold 34 mln HKD refurbishment project

HONG KONG, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong Space Museum Tuesday announced that a 34 million HK dollars (about 4.4 million US dollars) renovation project will be carried out at its Space Theater.

Curator of the Space Museum Chan Ki-hung said that the project scope is to install a new digital planetarium projector and replace the seats with an interactive system.

"With a resolution exceeding 48 million pixels, the new digital planetarium projector system boasts the highest resolution in the world," said Chan, adding that the system can project full dome animations or movies and allows future expansion such as upgrading to project 3D full dome images.

Besides, the new seats will be installed with a multilingual facility that allows narration in more than four languages for a show.

The newly designed display unit installed on the armrest of the seat will allow individual viewers to select language and use the interactive features, such as short message service among the audience and participation in real-time games, said Chan.

The theater will be closed from Nov. 17 to June 30, 2009, for renovation. It will be the first time that the theater is carrying out such a large-scale refurbishment since its opening in 1980.

荔枝角九巴總部 申建酒店料過關
9月5日 星期五 05:10

【明報專訊】新地(0016)聯營公司載通國際(0062),向城規會申請將荔枝角屋苑曼克頓山旁的九龍巴士廠寫字樓,改建為1幢22層提供225個房間的酒店,規劃署 提交文件稱不反對該申請,料今天會獲城規會批准。

運輸署要求增上落貨區

該申請原於6月6日審理,當時運輸署和警務處已提交文件,分別認為寶輪街交通現時已相當擠塞,對項目的車輛安排表示關注,前者表明反對該申請。申請人於6月4日及5日要求延期審理,以便有時間擬備進一步資料和回應,獲接納。

運輸署最新提交文件指出,不反對該申請,但要求申請於建議上落貨位置之外,多加設一個8米乘3.5米乘3.6米的上落貨區。

而規劃署指出酒店發展與商業發展類同,且酒店樓面與現時寫字樓相同(同屬地積比11.84倍),並不反對申請。

蘇屋眤重建13幢高樓公屋
01/11/2008


【本報訊】金融海嘯衝擊全球,經濟不景下公屋需求勢上升。房屋署拍板將市區公屋樓王蘇屋眤地皮,分兩期重建為十三幢樓高二十一至四十一層高的公屋,預計可提供五千五百個租住單位,全部工程將於二○一八年完工。

蘇屋眤佔地七萬七千六百平方米,是房署市區罕見的大型屋眤之一,地皮估值逾三百億元。房署早前宣布重建該眤後,一直有意見認為應將該地皮改建私樓,以地盡其用。

不過,隨尠金融海嘯衝擊全球,將公屋地皮轉作私樓的壓力大減,因應公屋需求未來將增加,房署拍板將蘇屋眤地皮重建公屋,提供五千五百個單位,地積比率約五倍,可容納一萬五千七百人。

明年清拆 2018年竣工
蘇屋眤會於明年中展開清拆工程,首期地基工程於二○一一年開始,二○一五年完工,第二期地基工程則會於二○一四年開工,二○一八年竣工。

消息人士指,蘇屋眤依山而建,當中有很多山坡及樹木,未來樓宇會分布於不同地勢的平台上,重建計劃會盡量保留現有樹木及增加樹木,並有多部升降機及行人天橋連接眤內的設施,方便居民,並會考慮保留一些有社區特色的建築物,當中包括繪有該眤景貌的壁畫、刻上「蘇屋眤」字樣的牌坊等。

建設商會反對慈雲山設高限,稱將打擊發展商於區內重建
經濟通
10月31日 星期五 08:25

政府就慈雲山、鑽石山及新蒲崗區地皮全面加入高限,區內大量舊樓項目首當其衝受影響,恐令其收購價值下降,代表本港絕大部分發展商的地產建設商會提出反對,批評該區全面設定高限將打擊發展商於區內進行重建。

地產建設商會提出意見,指並不反對就發展用地設定高限的原則,因可提供更清晰發展指引,但設定高限除考慮對景觀及空氣流通造成影響外,亦應顧及其他因素,例如有關發展對香港經濟的影響、地皮業主的權益,以及發展商進行重建活動等。商會建議,可以提供發展彈性,建議放寬該區的住宅用地高度限制。

城規會早前宣布修訂「慈雲山、鑽石山及新蒲崗」分區計劃大綱圖,就區內地皮全部加入高度限制,範圍在東九龍的黃大仙 區,包括啓德樓場舊址、蒲崗村道一帶等地,並分設主要高度級別,由80米(主水平基準以上,下同)至240米。受設定高限影響的用地,主要為區內的舊樓項目,包括現獲買家出價收購的蒲崗里舊樓等。《香港經濟日報》

優之良品上環批建酒店
(明報)10月24日 星期五 05:05

- Sheung Wan to see 32 storey hotel at 30 Bonham Strand West

【明報專訊】建酒店不是發展商的專利,根據政府最新批出圖則,除了永安旅遊獲批於大角嘴道興建一幢酒店,零食集團優之良品也獲批准於上環文咸西街30號(現為廣利大廈),興建1幢32層酒店,不知若酒店啟用後,會否好多零食款客呢。

They probably own the land and wants to partner up with a developer to redevelop it? For example, China Motor Bus has done something similar as well.
