That Area around the Olympic metro station has so many towers...and still nuff room for more....at the side of that blueish tower righthandside of pic above... (HSBC is also in it if I am correct remembering it...) you will find a whole area with very very old and crumble buildings!

Developers drive rise in ad spending
17 November 2005
Hong Kong Standard

Advertising spending in Hong Kong rose 11 percent year-on-year to HK$1.6 billion in October, the highest monthly total for the year to date, driven by increased marketing by property developers such as Sino Land and MTR Corp, according to market research firm admanGo.

"The national day Golden Week holidays on the mainland provided a boost to adspend in the month," admanGo said. October's total beat July, which recorded advertising sales of HK$1.59 billion.

The top advertiser last month was Sino Land, which spent HK$19.55 million, mainly to promote its new project One SilverSea, admanGo said.

MTR Corp and Sun Hung Kai Properties were third and fourth, spending HK$15.95 million and HK$15.55 million, respectively, mainly to market their joint development Harbour Green.

Property agencies Midland Realty and Centaline completed a clean sweep of the top five for property companies, coming in second and fifth, respectively. ``Many property companies timed their launches for October hoping to benefit from better market conditions before an expected rise in interest rates,'' admanGo said.

Property firms spent a combined HK$151 million for the month, up 41 percent from a year ago, admanGo said, accounting for the biggest share by sector.

In second place was skincare and cosmetics, spending HK$116 million, up 2 percent.

Banks and financial services firms came in third, increasing their ad spending 16 percent from a year ago to HK$112 million.

AdmanGo said its estimates were derived from applying a 40 percent discount against the rate cards published by the media companies.

Ad revenues for newspapers rose 15 percent year-on-year to HK$567 million, admanGo said, helped by the increased market presence of free newspapers launched earlier in the year.

However, television firms, with HK$587 million in ad revenues last month, 4.8 percent higher than a year earlier, still accounted for the biggest share of the market, admanGo said.

Picture Window: Luxury also rises in Kowloon
By Rebecca Lo
International Herald Tribune
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2005

HONG KONG Tai Kok Tsui, a dilapidated mixed-use area northwest of Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, has been getting a makeover in recent years.

Spurred by plans for the West Kowloon Cultural District and the relaxation of building height restrictions, a number of high-end properties are now available in the neighborhood. And One SilverSea, a seven-tower complex with broad views of Victoria Harbor, is expected to lead the pack when it is completed in December 2006.

Views in Hong Kong sometimes last only until the next high-rise project is finished, but that doesn't seem to be a concern with this project.

"Since the complex faces the Western Harbor Tunnel, it is unlikely the views will be obstructed since the tunnel prevents major construction on top of it," said Carman Cheng, of Centaline Property Agency.

Developed by The Sino Group, One SilverSea was designed by the leading Hong Kong architects Ronald Lu & Partners, who also were responsible for the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. Numbered from one to eight, with tower four omitted in accordance with good feng shui practice, the 35-story complex will offer a total of 700 units just minutes away from the Olympic subway station.

Clad in marble and limestone, the towers will rise from the clubhouse six floors above ground level.

Lower levels will include 122 parking spaces and two floors earmarked for a high-end hotel, to be managed in collaboration with The Fullerton in Singapore and designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates of Los Angeles.

Each floor is designed with only three units, ranging from 897 to 2,016 square feet, or 83 to 187 square meters, and all with lofty 11-foot, 4-inch, or 3.5-meter, ceilings and balconies.

To maximize options, however, two of the units on each floor have mirror-image layouts and can be combined - or, later, redivided - by removing or re-installing one wall.

Such flexible layouts are very popular in Hong Kong, to accommodate extended family and to increase future resale potential.

On the top of each tower will be a two-story, 3,300-square-foot penthouse, called a Sky Villa, with three levels of gardens and a private swimming pool.

About 400 apartments were sold when the development went on the market Oct. 1, with prices ranging from 7,500 Hong Kong dollars per square foot, about $1,000, for units on the lower floors to 18,000 Hong Kong dollars per square foot for the Sky Villas.

The prices for the remaining apartments, now about 130 units, have increased to 11,000 Hong Kong dollars per square foot.

(The villa atop Tower One, however, has not yet been released for sale - and is expected to fetch 30,000 Hong Kong dollars per square foot when it does go on the market.)

In line with the recent Hong Kong fashion for high-end fixtures, the bathrooms will include Antonio Citterio faucets and Philippe Starck toilets; kitchens will feature Gagganeau cooktops, Siemens refrigerators and washers and Poggenpohl cabinets.

"There are very few properties available in Kowloon with such high quality standards and finishes," Cheng said.

The Club One Clubhouse, also designed by Hirsch Bedner, will cover the entire sixth-floor base of the complex. In addition to a luxury entry way with a sweeping staircase, its facilities are to include a 50-meter outdoor swimming pool, a smaller indoor pool, a gymnasium and spa and a number of dedicated activity rooms for leisure pursuits ranging from mahjong to a children's play area.

The outdoor gardens will be available to residents, on request, for private entertaining.

廣 告


火警於零時四十七分發生,「一號銀海」一幢建興建中的住宅大樓約50樓近頂位置起火,現場所見有棚架火,不少火舌一度從高處跌下,波及低層的棚架,消防出動多輛消防車及救護車灌救。

由於現場有大批建築材料,加速火勢蔓延,消防在一小時後將火升為三級,再在三時前將火升為四級。

受火警影響,部分巴士要改道。

That is What I Say " One Fire Sea"

Sino Land 1H Net Profit Down 27% To HK$1.07B
16 March 2006

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Hong Kong-listed property developer Sino Land Co. Ltd (0083.HK) Thursday posted a 27% decline in its fiscal first-half net profit from a year earlier.

The blue-chip property developer said its net profit for the six months ended Dec. 31 was HK$1.07 billion, compared with HK$1.46 billion for the same period the previous year.

The company cited a sharp fall in property sales for the decline.

Sino Land reported a gain of HK$434.8 million from a revaluation of its investment properties in its first-half, compared with a restated loss of HK$0.57 million for the same period a year earlier.

First-half revenue was HK$918.6 million, down 69% from HK$2.96 billion in the year-earlier period.

Sino Land said its first-half revenue from property sales was HK$15 million, compared with HK$2.15 billion in the same period the previous year.

The company attributed the sharp decline in property sales to the lack of new residential project completions.

Robert Ng, chairman of Sino Land, said the company expects two new residential projects to be completed in the second half. They are Mount Beacon in Kowloon Tong; and One SilverSea in the West Kowloon district, with a total floor space of 944,012 square feet.

With a land reserve of 18.3 million square foot under development, Sino Land said it will continue to replenish its land bank selectively to optimize its earning potential.

Gross rental revenue for the first-half rose to HK$687.8 million, from HK$570 million in the year-earlier period.

"It is anticipated that a total of approximately 1.38 million square feet of attributable gross floor area of commercial space will be completed throughout the next four years, which will provide additional rental income for the group," Ng said.

The majority of the new commercial space will be designated for retail use, he added.

Sino Land's investment property portfolio comprises 9.3 million square feet of floor space, of which commercial properties account for 53%.

The company said first-half revenue from its hotel operations rose to HK$151.3 million from HK$144.1 million a year earlier, on healthy development in regional tourism.

The company proposed a first-half dividend of 8.5 HK cents, unchanged from a year earlier.

Purchasers can always knock down a wall or two to make some larger bedrooms. It's quite a common renovation item.
