Closed area starts to shrink in size
The Standard
Wednesday, February 15, 2012

The restricted zone separating Hong Kong from the mainland will be reduced from today - allowing the public to enter certain boundary locations without a closed area permit.

The move, which opens 740 hectares of land in Sha Tau Kok and Lok Ma Chau to the public, is the first of three stages that cuts the Frontier Closed Area, or FCA, from 2,800 hectares to 400 hectares.

Deputy Secretary for Security Carol Yip Man-kuen said Shek Chung Au checkpoint in Sha Tau Kok will close for good and a new Gate One checkpoint in the area starts operating today.

Construction of new patrol roads from Mai Po to the Lok Ma Chau control point section, and Lin Ma Hang to Sha Tau Kok section, is completed.

Work on the second section involves erecting a secondary boundary fence from the entrance of Sha Tau Kok town, where the Gate One checkpoint is located, to the Sha Tau Kok control point, a distance of about 500 meters.

"The reduced FCA now comprises a narrow strip of land covering the realigned boundary patrol road and areas to its north, together with crossing points along the boundary, that is the boundary control points and Sha Tau Kok town," Yip said.

"Upon reduction, about 3,300 local residents in eight villages and workers in the areas concerned will have more access. Outsiders do not have to apply for a closed area permit to enter or leave the areas to be released from the FCA."

Chung Ying Street and Sha Tau Kok town are still under FCA restrictions to combat illegal immigration and other cross-boundary criminal activities.

Kenneth Chan Kwok-wah, divisional commander (Sha Tau Kok) of the Customs and Excise Department, said: "The operation of the Gate One checkpoint in Sha Tau Kok will remain the same as Shek Chung Au checkpoint.

"The facilities for the new checkpoint will also include a minor building structure and a covered vehicle inspection area spanning road for the inspection of vehicles."

First stage of reduction of Frontier Closed Area implemented
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Government Press Release



The Under Secretary for Security, Mr Lai Tung-kwok, officiated at a ceremony at the Shek Chung Au Check Point at midnight yesterday (February 14), signifying that a total of more than 740 hectares of land was excised from the Frontier Closed Area (FCA) for public use in the first stage of the reduction of the FCA.

The Shek Chung Au Check Point operated by the Police and the Customs and Excise Department was closed officially right after the ceremony while the Sha Tau Kok Check Point started to operate simultaneously.

The Security Bureau announced in January 2008 that the coverage of the FCA would be substantially reduced from about 2,800 hectares to about 400 hectares. In order to implement the reduced coverage of the FCA while maintaining the integrity of the boundary, the Government needs to construct a secondary boundary fence along the boundary patrol road.

The construction works have been divided into four sections, namely the "Mai Po to Lok Ma Chau Control Point Section", the "Lok Ma Chau Control Point to Ng Tung River Section", the "Ng Tung River to Lin Ma Hang Section" and the "Lin Ma Hang to Sha Tau Kok Section". The Government implements the reduction of the FCA by amending the Frontier Closed Area Order in stages to tie in with the completion of the construction works for the four sections. The "Mai Po to Lok Ma Chau Control Point Section" and the "Lin Ma Hang to Sha Tau Kok Section" are covered in this first stage reduction.

The construction works for the "Lok Ma Chau Control Point to Ng Tung River Section" are expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2012. The Government aims to further reduce the FCA by introducing another amendment to the Frontier Closed Area Order in early 2013. As for the "Ng Tung River to Lin Ma Hang Section", the construction works will start in the first quarter of 2012 and are expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2015.

Callers raise roof over flats for rich
The Standard
Thursday, February 09, 2012

Housing Society chairman Yeung Ka-sing has defended a luxury homes plan for the elderly against criticism it is a waste of public funds.

The "Joyous Living" scheme, involving a total of 1,538 homes, is based around two projects at Tanner Hill in North Point and Wetland Park Road in Tin Shui Wai.

Units will be between 500 and 1,000 square foot in size.

Affluent senior citizens will have to pay a lump sum upfront to live at the developments.

Callers to an RTHK phone-in show slammed the scheme.

"If I pay more than HK$100,000 each year to rent a residential unit in the new projects, I don't see any difference from paying for a nursing home, which even provides food and domestic services for 24 hours, seven days a week," one caller said.

Another said: "The Housing Society receives subsidies from public funds. If I'm so rich, why would I prefer to rent an apartment managed by the society?"

Yeung told RTHK that the scheme would not receive a subsidy from public funds, and would be self- financed.

He added that rents are essentially set according to construction and operational costs, instead of rises or falls in the property market.

Yeung said yesterday he does not expect to see profits from the scheme, and will be happy if costs are covered.

"The Joyous Living projects are tailor-made to meet the special needs of affluent senior citizens, instead of all of the seven million Hongkongers," he said.

"The society is simply offering one more housing solution to those with greater affordability.

"The public shouldn't be confused about the concept."

For empty residential units, the Housing Society would in future adjust the price range according to the inflation rate.

Looks like both the Shanghai Commercial Bank and CNAC Buildings on Queen's Road Central are being demolished. They're steps away from the Landmark.

Is there a proposal out there for what they are replacing this with? Think this is the first I have heard of this building going down.

There is so much activity in Central at the minute. It's really exciting!

I have no idea what the replacement will be yet. I was a bit surprised the two were being demolished as well.

Root of all evil lies in bad planning
The Standard
Monday, February 20, 2012

Illegal construction has become a heated topic, from extension structures in the New Territories, to top Hong Kong officials building additions to their homes.

The recent controversy illustrates the notion of inequality and unfairness in modern society.

It is common knowledge that space in the SAR is limited and scarce, so land is more valuable than gold.

Therefore, Hongkongers - given their urge to maximize all commercial value - tend to cross the line and build more than the allowable area.

Every piece of land is associated with a preset potential for development, meaning the size of the site, amount of area that is allowed to be built on it, height limit, and so on, are all determined by the government's planning department.

There are certain cases in which these parameters may be changed - if the appropriate proposal and documentation have been approved, along with a fee.

The value of a site hinges heavily on the amount of area the owner can build on it, and that will determine the return estimation. If the land is sold at a well-traded price range with the potential development of the site known, this will bring about the most efficient and fair price.

But if an owner decides to violate regulations after purchasing the property by creating additional space, this will dramatically increase the allowable finished area on the site, leading to an unfair condition among most of the public.

Hong Kong is very different from the rest of the world. Unlike in the West, where open space is more abundant, the need to exploit every last square inch of developable area is minimal, since there is incentive for people to live in the suburbs with a convenient transportation network.

But here, where transportation may be extremely poor once you get into the rural districts, there is a strong urgency for planners to create more density within the urban areas.

The only logical remedy starts with planning. The urban planning here has always failed to keep up with the city's rapid growth, lacking flexibility or adaptability.

The problem with illegal construction stems not only from regulations, the root of all evil lies with the poor urban planning dating back more than 30 years.

It is high time for us to realize that what we are seeing now is only the tip of the iceberg - a ticking time bomb waiting to explode - with a housing shortage looming in the face of population growth among expatriates and Hong Kong-born mainlanders. Architect Nicholas Ho and art historian Stephanie Poon don't always see eye to eye.

Developers bank on low-density home schemes
The Standard
Thursday, February 23, 2012

Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) plans to put to market two low-density projects next week.

The sixth phase of Park Island Oceancrest, also called AnaCapri, will offer luxury flats sized between 1,200 and 2,000 square feet.

A unit at the 65-unit project will cost HK$10,000 psf on average, putting AnaCapri on course to generating HK$1 billion in sales.

Also being released is another four-unit detached house project in Tuen Mun. The houses are sized between 3,700 and 4,500 sq ft each, and will cost an average of HK$20,000 psf, putting SHKP on course for another HK$400 million.

SHKP also plans to start selling, from late next month, flats atop the Tuen Mun MTR station - which are now awaiting presale consent.

Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency executive director Victor Lui Ting said property prices are likely to see moderate rises this year. "Surging household incomes and low mortgage rates are fueling demand and support prices this year," he said.

Paliburg Holdings (0617) director Donald Fan Tung also said there are favorable factors.

"The poor sentiment seen last year was due to the European sovereign debt crisis. But now I wouldn't worry even if the crisis cannot be settled, as the market is supported by the influx of buyers from the mainland and low interest rates."

Paliburg said it plans to buy more land this year, including the 32,830 sq ft Ap Lei Chau site, which may fetch between HK$1.15 billion and HK$2.7 billion, or HK$5,000 to HK$12,000 per buildable sq ft. About 200 to 300 units could be built on the site, the tender for which closes on March 16.

The developer also plans to launch two hotels in Sheung Wan, one hotel in Tin Hau, and a residential project in Yuen Long.

Meanwhile, two low-density residential sites are to be sold through public tender.

A 45,747-sq-ft site near Repulse Bay, with a gross floor area of 41,172 sq ft, is likely to fetch between HK$11.65 billion and HK$18.9 billion.

The other - a 97,091-sq-ft site in Siu Lam, Tuen Mun with a GFA of 38,836 sq ft - is expected to cost between HK$117 million and HK$194 million.

Proposed institutional changes to upgrade the construction industry
Friday, February 24, 2012
Government Press Release

The proposed amalgamation of the Construction Industry Council (CIC) and the Construction Workers Registration Authority (CWRA) will enhance the institutional arrangements related to the construction industry in Hong Kong. This will be another milestone in strengthening Hong Kong's construction industry further, after the amalgamation of the CIC and the then Construction Industry Training Authority in 2008.

The Construction Industry Legislation (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill 2012, which proposed the amalgamation and other measures to further streamline the CIC's institutional operation to ensure the healthy and sustainable development of the construction industry as a whole, was gazetted today (February 24).

A spokesman for the Development Bureau said that in its report "Construct for Excellence", published in January 2001, the Construction Industry Review Committee (CIRC) recommended the establishment of an industry co-ordinating body to provide a focus for the construction industry's reform efforts and to foster better co-ordination within the industry. The CIRC also supported in principle the implementation of a worker registration scheme through legislative means. When the CIC Bill was introduced into the Legislative Council (LegCo) in February 2004, it was the policy intent for the CIC to ultimately undertake both training and registration of construction workers.

The CWRA was established in September 2004 and commenced the registration of construction workers in December 2005. The CIC was established in February 2007 and amalgamated with the former Construction Industry Training Authority in January 2008 to take over the training functions and powers discharged by the latter.

"To meet the legislative intent for the establishment of the CIC, there is a present and pressing need to amalgamate the CIC and the CWRA to achieve synergy and support the Government's massive infrastructure programme at the earliest opportunity.

"After due consultation with the LegCo Panel on Development, trade associations and labour unions of the construction industry on the proposed amalgamation and amendments to the Construction Industry Council Ordinance (CICO) and the Construction Workers Registration Ordinance (CWRO), we have drawn up the proposals which are now contained in the Bill," the spokesman said.

The Bill also includes an amendment to the CICO to provide flexibility for the Council to finance educational, publicity, research or other programmes relating to occupational safety and health, environmental protection or sustainable development in the construction industry.

The Bill seeks to introduce amendments to the CWRO to extend the period for the renewal of worker registration from three months to six months and to allow extension of the period for provisional registration under circumstances beyond the control of the workers concerned to assist workers in the registration process.

A new provision is included in the CWRO to pave the way for the workers registration card issued under the CWRO to store and display information of other construction-related cards/certificates in order to reduce the number of cards that a worker needs to carry while at work.

The Secretary for Development will introduce the Bill into the LegCo on February 29. The LegCo Brief on the Bill is available at the Development Bureau's website:

New home prices raised after sentiment improves
The Standard
Monday, February 27, 2012

Some developers are raising the prices of new homes as buyer sentiment continues to improve.

China Overseas Land and Investment (0688) sold 41 flats at The Green in Fan Ling over the weekend.

The developer has released another batch of 14 flats sized between 2,720 and 2,912 square feet, priced at an average of HK$11,520 psf. These will be available for sale on Wednesday.

The average per square foot price of this batch of flats is 3.6 percent less than those in the previous batch at HK$11,945 psf. But this is still 37 percent higher than prices in the first batch of 75 flats at HK$8,411 psf. In all, 75 units will be on the market in the next few days.

According to agents, 20 flats had been reserved at the weekend. The Green offers 254 detached houses ranging in size from 2,032 to 4,025 sq ft.

Also, Cheung Kong (Holdings) (0001) sold 40 flats at Festival City stage three in Tai Wai. The developer said earlier that it will withdraw the remaining flats from the market for three weeks, as it prepares for the launch of the next batch.

Meanwhile, sales in the secondary home market - both mass-market and luxury segments - continued apace with transactions for the former reaching a one-year high.

Centaline said it recorded 76 sales in the 10 major housing estates at the weekend, up from 70 a week ago. In City One in Sha Tin, 12 flats changed hands, or twice the number sold a week ago.

Louis Chan Wing-kit, Centaline's chief executive for residential sales, said confidence has been boosted by market sentiment.

In addition, two detached houses at Residence Bel-Air in Cyberport were sold for more than HK$150 million each. A 6,000-sq-ft house was sold for HK$158 million, or HK$26,333 psf, while another 5,232-sq-ft house fetched HK$170 million, or HK$32,492 psf.

Some homeowners, too, are asking higher prices.

In Discovery Park in Tsuen Wan, a 610-sq-ft two-bedroom flat was sold after the homeowner raised the price by HK$30,000, according to agents. The homeowner sold the flat for HK$3.58 million, representing HK$5,869 psf.

To Kwa Wan flat owners get the option to swap
The Standard
Tuesday, February 28, 2012

The Urban Renewal Authority has introduced a flat-swap program for a redevelopment project in To Kwa Wan under the new Urban Renewal Strategy.

Flat owners of the Pak Tai Street/Sun San Road redevelopment project who live in the homes now have an option to swap for a flat in the redeveloped project at the original site, or a new project in the Kai Tak area.

The choices are in addition to the usual cash compensation announced earlier this month of HK$8,939 per square foot of saleable area.

Managing director Quinn Law Yee- kwan said this will give affected families more choices.

The Kai Tak project, to be completed in 2016-2017, will consist of 323 sq ft to 692 sq ft flats. It will be a "no- extragavance" design such as a hotel- style lobby, executive director Iris Tam Siu-ying said, with 30 percent of the site area to be green-covered.

The Urban Renewal Authority has reserved 99 units for the 40-odd flat owners to choose from - 49 units in the original project and 50 units in the Kai Tak project.

The owners have been given 60 days to consider the offer starting from yesterday.

The 50 Kai Tak homes will be priced between HK$9,045 and HK$10,358 psf on a saleable area basis.

But Law said because the Kai Tak flats will be in general slightly smaller than the old flats, two thirds of the 99 flats cost less than the compensation, meaning most do not need to pay extra for a new home.

Meanwhile, a consortium consisting of Chevalier International Holdings and Golden Code Development has outbid nine others for the authority's redevelopment at Chi Kiang Street/Ha Heung Road in To Kwa Wan.

The project site is about 930 square meters and upon completion is expected to deliver a total gross floor area of about 8,380 square meters for an estimated total of 116 residential units, together with the provision of commercial space of about 1,400 square meters.

Half of the flats are to be about 500 sq ft, the authority said. The market has estimated that the land is worth between HK$450 million and HK$550 million, but the authority would not disclose the financial terms of the contract.

Separately, Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said the authority will carry out a pilot scheme to redevelop industrial buildings.

She said the government will make a contribution to the authority if there are additional resources and staffing involved in the new scheme.

At a low point
The Standard
Thursday, February 23, 2012

Residential transactions may have rebounded in recent weeks, but the morale of property agents is at a low ebb. Displeasure has bubbled over on occasion and last week agents even agitated against their employer.

Agents are also facing new challenges in the form of proposed legislation that aims to regulate primary market sales. The adoption of "saleable area" in secondhand sales and leases is also being discussed.

In the meantime, two bribery convictions came to light, though the offenses were committed a couple of years ago. The offenders were charged by the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

In two separate cases, one agent was found to have pocketed an extra HK$10,000 from a client without his agency's permission, while the other solicited a HK$2,000 commission from a subordinate. Both were found guilty and got jail terms.

"Everybody became desperate for some extra cash, which makes sense in a sluggish market," said an agent who declined to be named. "During good times when everyone is earning big, HK$2,000 is too little for us to care about. Even if we were asked for cash, we would just pay to get it over with."

The agent added that it is the juniors who will normally be tempted because they do not get the chance to handle many transactions.

"But with the current poor market sentiment, it's likely that some third parties were jealous of the person getting the illegal extra cash, and so reported the incidents to the ICAC."

Occasionally, property developers also offer higher commissions to agents as an incentive to sell new homes. But many hands stretch out to grab those incentives.

A senior agent at a small property agency said such commissions attract those selling secondary homes into the fray.

"How many of us can actually get the higher commission? Not to mention the split with the agency," the agent said. "Even when transactions are improving as they are now, the larger firms grab them all. Barely anything is left for us."

Compared with the usual commissions of 2 to 2.5 percent, developers of some new projects have offered commissions of up to 5 percent.

For a secondary home deal, agencies get a commission equivalent to 2 percent of the property's price. This means 1 percent from the buyer and 1percent from the seller.

When more than one agency is involved in a deal, the commission is usually split.

As the market goes into slow growth mode, few people are entering the industry.

In the February round of qualifying examinations, the number of registered candidates fell 45 percent from a year ago, according to the Estate Agents Authority. At the peak, 4,887 registered for the exam in August last year.

Those in the business are not entirely efficient either. The authority has reported receiving 590 complaints against agents last year, down 5 percent from 2010. The industry body revoked nine licenses last year.

Meanwhile, about 100 property agents of Midland Realty - angered by suggestions that extra commissions were being cut - took their grievance to the boss.

Last Thursday they gathered on the 25th floor of World-Wide House in Central, asking to meet with chairman Freddie Wong Kin-yip.

Later that day, the firm issued a press release saying that it settled a dispute, while also denying that it was about extra commissions.

The protest lasted three to four hours. But it was a rare agitation in the history of Hong Kong real estate agents.

Opening remarks by STH on transport issues at LegCo Finance Committee Special Meeting
Tuesday, March 6, 2012
Government Press Release

Following is the English translation of the opening remarks by the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Ms Eva Cheng, on transport issues at the Finance Committee Special Meeting of the Legislative Council today (March 6):

Honourable Chairperson,

Today, I would like to brief Members on the part of the Estimates and our priority areas under the transport portfolio in the new financial year.

The allocation for the transport portfolio in the new financial year is $35.5 billion, which includes the estimated expenditure of a number of cross-boundary and domestic transport infrastructure projects.

Firstly, let me report the latest update of the major transport infrastructure projects. We commenced the construction works of the West Island Line, the South Island Line (East), the Kwun Tong Line Extension and the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, and expect them to be completed accordingly in 2014 and 2015.

On the other hand, the detailed planning and design of Shatin to Central Link is almost completed, and the necessary statutory procedures are now at the final stage. We will strive to apply for funding approval within this legislative session, with a view to commencing construction this year.

As regards another cross-boundary transport infrastructure project the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB), works in respect of the Main Bridge, Immersed Tube Tunnel and the Artificial Islands commenced and have been progressing well. These works are expected to complete in 2016. For the local projects of the HZMB, the Finance Committee approved the funding for the related works last year, and the reclamation works for the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities commenced immediately in late 2011. The tendering work for the Hong Kong Link Road is still ongoing. The local projects have been affected for about one year because of a judicial review case; we are now compressing the works programme and are confident that the various local works can be completed to dovetail with the target of commissioning the HZMB Main Bridge in 2016.

Further, we are also pressing ahead with our local road infrastructure projects, including Stage 1 of the Tolo Highway and Fanling Highway widening works, the Central-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link and the widening of Tuen Mun Road. We are also pushing ahead with the planning and design of a number of projects including the Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link, the Tuen Mun Western Bypass, the Central Kowloon Route, the Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel and Stage 2 of the Tolo Highway and Fanling Highway widening works.

At the same time, we secured funding approval from the Legislative Council for taking forward the design of the barrier-free access facilities retrofitting works at about 180 existing footbridges, elevated walkways and subways and the phase 1 retrofitting of barrier-free access facilities. The first phase of the retrofitting works has commenced. We plan to apply funding approval for Phase 2 retrofitting works this year, and hope to complete the bulk of the retrofitting works by 2016-17.

On civil aviation, we will strengthen Hong Kong's position as an international and regional aviation centre. We will continue to proactively pursue expansion in the bilateral air services arrangements. Regarding the proposals arising from the review of the Air Transport Licensing Authority's regulatory regime, the relevant legislative amendments have been passed by the Legislative Council and will be implemented this year. In terms of hardware, the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) will continue to implement a midfield expansion project to increase the handling capacity with air traffic demand up to 2020. For the long-term development of the airport, AAHK launched a public consultation in mid-2011 on the Hong Kong International Airport Master Plan 2030. AAHK recommended to the Government at the end of 2011 that the three-runway system should be adopted as the blueprint for development. The Government is carefully considering AAHK's recommendation with a view to making an early decision for the commencement of the next stage of work, which includes the environmental impact assessment, the associated detailed design and the financing arrangements.

On maritime and logistics development, we will continue to assist the industry to take advantage of opportunities arising from vibrant shipping and logistics development in Asia, as well as the positioning of Hong Kong as set out in the National 12th Five-Year Plan. For example, we will reinforce the local maritime cluster by supporting manpower development and undertaking promotional activities. In terms of hardware, both the preliminary feasibility study of developing Container Terminal 10 (CT10) at southwest Tsing Yi and the Study on the Strategic Development Plan for Hong Kong Port 2030 are under way and are expected to be completed by the end of the year. We will carefully consider the study results, the global and local economic situation, the performance of the port sector, and the views of stakeholders to decide on the need for CT10 development. Separately, we are proceeding with the dredging of the Kwai Tsing container basin and its approach channel to enable the new generation of ultra-large container ships to visit Hong Kong Port.

On the logistics front, Hong Kong has the advantages for development into a high value goods inventory management and regional distribution centre. To support the industry, we have already made available two logistics sites for the industry to construct modern logistics facilities. We will continue to identify suitable land for logistics and port backup uses for meeting development needs. Separately, we shall continue to work with the industry to promote e-logistics, as well as to implement measures which would help enhance the operating efficiency of the sector.

On road safety, we will continue to enhance road safety through legislation and enforcement, as well as publicity and education. Last year we introduced legislative amendment proposals to combat drug driving. The new legislation will be enacted for implementation in mid-March.

We have also introduced legislative amendments to the Road Traffic Ordinance to deter speeding behaviour among public light bus drivers and to enhance the safety of public light bus operation. The proposed measures include imposing a maximum speed limit for light buses, mandating that all light buses install speed limiters, and requiring applicants for public light bus driving licences to attend a mandatory pre-service training course.

As to the measures of traffic management, cross-boundary transport and the long-term railway development study, I do not intend to go into details here.

My colleagues and I would be pleased to answer questions from Members. Thank you, Chairperson.

High call in Causeway Bay
The Standard
Thursday, March 08, 2012

Several leading developers are eyeing a large commercial site in Causeway Bay.

Phoenix Property Investors plans to sell its wholly owned President Shopping Centre and the Central Mansion above it on Jaffe Road. The tender for the sale closes tomorrow.

Chinese Estates Holdings (0127), KWah International (0173), Emperor International (0163) and Wheelock (0020) have indicated they could be among bidders.

Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016), owner of the nearby World Trade Centre, is also believed to be interested.

A market insider said one bid already submitted was for HK$5 billion, or more than HK$20,000 per buildable square foot, and a 31-story commercial building with a gross floor area of 228,000 sq ft was a good bet for the site.

But another market source said the seller was seeking at least HK$6 billion, which would be equivalent to HK$26,316 per buildable sq ft.

And Vincent Cheung Kiu-cho, the director for valuation at Cushman & Wakefield, said the successful buyer would need to come to terms with height restrictions in the district, which would rule out a 31-story tower.

It was in 2010 that the Town Planning Board put a 110-meter cap on the height of buildings in Causeway Bay - a restriction that met immediately with objections from developers.

As matters stand, Cheung said, a building on the site would have "at most 27-28 stories, assuming around four meters per floor." He also said the construction cost would be "about HK$912 million, or HK$4,000 per square foot."

Average monthly rentals of shops in a mall that could feature in a new development would amount to HK$400 psf, though some ground-floor sites could go for more than HK$1,000 psf a month.

Eric Lau Man-ho, leasing manager at Sun Hung Kai Property Agency, said in January that rents at the WTC Mall ranged from HK$255 to HK$300 psf.

Retails shops are presently on the two bottom floors of the President Shopping Centre, while the 11 floors above is Central Mansion.

The block beside the World Trade Centre Mall, the WTC office tower and the Excelsior Hotel was built in 1964.

Tenant forces delay at illegal industrial units
The Standard
Thursday, March 08, 2012

A Buildings Department bid for court permission to demolish illegal subdivided flats at an industrial building in Tai Kok Tsui has been put off until next week.

The District Court adjournment came after principal tenant Kan San-pui filed an objection saying he needs more time.

Judge Stephen Chow Siu-hung will hear the case again on Monday to decide whether the court order should be issued.

Kan told the court that since the warning letter from the department does not clearly state the details of the demolition, he has the right to oppose its application.

The furniture-store owner said he rents the fourth and fifth floors, as well as the rooftop, for storage.

This is the first action by the government against illegally partitioned flats amid growing public safety concerns.

A chronically ill tenant named Ng is the last person to still remain in the partitioned cubicles at the industrial building on 78 and 78A Larch Street - as he has failed so far to find alternative housing.

The government has arranged for him to stay three months at the Tuen Mun Temporary Accommodation Centre before he can move into interim housing.

"I feel secure that a shelter has been arranged for me for three months." Ng said. "My worries have been temporarily eased."

Ng also said it would be irresponsible of the government to not offer alternative accommodation to affected tenants.

The past two months saw social workers from the department and nongovernmental organizations help tenants apply for government subsidies and find alternative housing. Most of the elderly households in the building moved out weeks ago.

The department said the court action is a public-interest move over land use, and reassured affected tenants they will be taken care of and not left homeless.

At a special meeting of the Legislative Council Finance Committee, Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet- ngor said the building's landlord is dead and it would be difficult to initiate prosecution without clarifying the ownership issue.

A department order in September told the owner to stop renting out the industrial building for residential use.

'Grossly unfair'
The Standard
Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Property developers are crying foul after the Executive Council yesterday approved new regulations to govern home sales.

The Residential Properties (First- hand Sales) Bill, which faced strong objections from developers, will be presented to the Legislative Council for approval next week.

It proposes to make developers quote prices of flats based on saleable, rather than gross, area - with big fines and lengthy jail terms for those who fail to comply.

The maximum penalty for breaching the regulation will be a HK$5 million fine and up to seven years' imprisonment.

The Real Estate Developers Association had earlier urged the government to also include gross floor area - for which there is no uniform definition - in sales documents.

REDA executive committee chairman Stewart Leung Chi-kin said the new regulation is unacceptable.

"Real estate agents are allowed to quote their prices of secondary homes in GFA, with which the average price per square foot would be lower.

"But developers are not allowed to give our prices in GFA. Is that fair?"

The first reading of the bill in Legco will be next Wednesday.

Under the regulation, saleable area will be adopted as the sole measurement in quoting the size of a property and the price per square foot in sales brochures, price lists and advertisements.

But property developers want gross floor area to be included in sales materials.

Following Exco's approval, Secretary for Transport and Housing Eva Cheng Yu-wah said: "Having a unified definition to calculate the area of a unit is the basis for the legislation.

"Some suggested including the gross floor area as a reference. But it is ridiculous to have some parts of the price list as references, while the real information is stated already."

Centaline managing director Louis Chan Wing-kit welcomed the new measures.

He said agencies will have to be more cautious with small details, but in the long run "buyers' confidence and transactions will be boosted as the penalties are now more harsh than many places in the world."

Lawrence Poon Wing-cheung, a specialist in real estate development at City University of Hong Kong said: "Secondary homeowners will have no option but to adapt by giving saleable area."

Cheng said the proposed legislation also requires developers to disclose the distance between the lowest residential floor and the street next to it.

This was brought in following a complaint from the buyer of a flat at Oceanaire in Ma On Shan built by Cheung Kong Holdings (0001).

The flat, said to be on the podium floor, was actually at ground level.

It was presold for HK$7 million after the sales brochure had claimed it was below "the fifth floor."

Two sites to be sold through public tender in May could fetch between HK$1.33 billion and HK$1.38 billion.

A 46,845-square-foot site in Tseung Kwan O area 56A is likely to sell for between HK$979 million and HK$1.03 billion, representing between HK$3,800 and HK$4,000 per buildable sq ft.

It offers a GFA of 257,647 sq ft, which means only 310 to 326 units can be built.

A 50,473-sq-ft plot in Kau To, Sha Tin, could sell for between HK$300 million and HK$403 million, or HK$6,000-HK$8,000 per buildable sq ft. It offers GFA of 50,375 sq ft.

Tenders close on May 18.

Buildings Department takes enforcement action against illegal sub-divided domestic cubicles in industrial buildings
Monday, March 12, 2012
Government Press Release

In order to step up enforcement action against illegal sub-divided domestic cubicles in industrial buildings to protect public safety, the Buildings Department (BD) was granted a closure order, applied for by the BD on March 7, by the District Court today (March 12) to close down certain floors of 78 and 78A Larch Street, Kowloon, in order to facilitate the BD's arrangement to clear the unauthorised building works (UBWs) on the floors concerned by government contractors. After receiving the closure order, the BD closed the floors concerned with the assistance of police officers. The closure operation was carried out smoothly as all the occupants of the subject premises had already moved out on or before March 7. The BD will make arrangements for government contractors to demolish the UBWs on the floors concerned shortly.

"Changing industrial premises to domestic use poses a serious fire risk to the occupants, while the erection of partition walls may render the fire escape route in the premises inadequate. To ensure public safety, the BD needs and is determined to take stringent enforcement action against such irregularities. To this end, the BD will carry out large-scale enforcement action against sub-divided domestic cubicles in 30 industrial buildings each year starting from April 2012. Such enforcement action includes issuing orders to the owners requiring removal of UBWs and/or discontinuing the present domestic use, as well as instigating prosecution actions more readily against owners who contravene the Buildings Ordinance (Cap. 123)," the spokesman stressed.

The building located at 78 and 78A Larch Street was issued with an occupation permit in July 1962. According to the approved building plans, the design and construction of the building was intended for industrial use. However, earlier inspections carried out by BD staff revealed that UBWs had been erected on the podium flat roof and rooftop of the building. The floor space within these UBWs and certain floors of the building had also been partitioned into some 60 sub-divided cubicles used for domestic purposes. As the owner failed to comply with the statutory orders served by the BD in April 2009, April 2011 and September 2011, the BD decided to apply for a closure order from the court to close down the floors concerned and to arrange for its contractors to demolish the UBWs so as to protect the safety of the occupants and the public. The BD will also recover from the owner the cost of the works and the supervision charge.

"In order to allow more time for those affected to relocate, the BD notified the occupants of the arrangements and posted 'notices of intention to apply for closure orders' (NOI) at conspicuous locations at the building on December 29 last year. It has always been the Government's policy to ensure that no one will be rendered homeless due to its enforcement action. As such, over the past two months, the BD has made arrangements in collaboration with the Housing Department, the Social Welfare Department and the Home Affairs Department to offer appropriate financial, rehousing and social assistance to the affected occupants based on their eligibility," the spokesman said.

The spokesman added that the BD has so far granted the relocation allowance of the Community Care Fund to 37 eligible occupants. Social workers from the BD have also assisted the affected occupants in applying for allowances offered by other organisations and seeking alternative accommodation, such as hostels managed by voluntary organisations and domestic units in private buildings. In fact, with the assistance from the BD's social workers, over 60 households from the floors concerned at the building were able to move out smoothly earlier on.

In view of the fact that some vacated cubicles had been reoccupied in early 2012, the BD has already taken a series of measures to remind occupants who have newly moved in, as well as prospective tenants, of the BD's enforcement action. In particular, after the first posting of the NOI on December 29, 2011, the notice was reposted on the floors concerned again by BD staff on February 3 and February 22, 2012. Moreover, social workers from the BD have carried out three day visits and 17 night visits since December 29, 2011, to explain to the occupants the details of the BD's enforcement action.

The spokesman once again reminded owners of industrial buildings not to change their units to domestic use, and warned that owners who contravene the relevant legislation or fail to comply with statutory orders can be prosecuted. Furthermore, for their own safety, occupants of such sub-divided units should move out of the units as soon as possible, while others should refrain from living in industrial buildings. Any person who makes rental arrangements should also enquire about the approved intended use of the unit and avoid renting and living in premises only intended for industrial use. To ascertain the approved intended use of the premises, prospective tenants should pay attention to the name and location of the building, the interior design of the premises and, where necessary, check the occupation permit, approved building plans and other relevant information about a building through the search services of the Land Registry or the BRAVO system of the BD if they are in doubt. To dispel any rumours, the spokesman added that no one displaced by such enforcement actions, including households that have already applied for public rental housing (PRH) via the General Waiting List, would be given an earlier allocation of PRH.

Finally, the spokesman said the BD is extremely grateful to all government departments and voluntary organisations for their efforts, without which the operation could not have been carried out smoothly.
