base on the "floor sign" in these update, i figured that the current construction height is only around 3 floors below the third "fire floor" (first fire floor being right above the podium). This ugly building is getting way too tall. I prefer Nina Tower and Hanoi road to switch their location.

I highly doubt that the building will reach 275m. A more conservative estimate of 235m is probably more appropriate. Better to be pleasantly surprised eh? =P

New World deal to pave the way for Hyatt return

Developer and hotel operator in final stages of talks on management contract


The legacy of the recently closed Hyatt Regency lives on in Tsim Sha Tsui, with plans at an advanced stage for the group to operate a 320-room hotel on Hanoi Road early next year, according to sources.
Chicago-based Global Hyatt Corp was in the final stages of discussions on a management contract for the luxury hotel project, part of a one million square foot redevelopment by New World Development and the Urban Renewal Authority, the sources say.

"They are putting some final touches to the details of the hotel management contract," said a source familiar with the discussions between New World and Hyatt. "A conclusion is expected in two months."

The Hanoi Road hotel building was expected to be completed early next year, the source said. New World spokesman Kwan Chuk-fai said negotiations to award a management contract to an international hotel company were proceeding.

Given the tourism boom, with Tsim Sha Tsui a particular hub for visitors, many had expected the Hyatt to reaffirm its presence in the area after the 723-room Hyatt Regency closed its doors after 36 years.

Its exit comes at a time when hotel supply in the area struggles to meet demand. The new project "will replenish less than half of the some 700 rooms the Hyatt has closed in the district", Eric Wong, co-head of Asia properties at UBS, said.

"Hong Kong is facing a big question mark on whether it has enough upmarket tourist beds to feed rising demand."

The hotelier also runs the waterfront Grand Hyatt in Wan Chai with 570 rooms. It faces increased competition at the higher end from recent additions, notably the deluxe Four Seasons Hotel on the Central waterfront and the boutique Landmark Mandarin hotel that opened in the Central shopping district last year.

Tourist arrivals are expected to see single-digit growth this year. Mr Wong said this year would be a "pricing power year" for Hong Kong hoteliers after robust growth in occupancy in the past two years.

Last year, average occupancy at the city's top-end hotels hovered around 85 per cent on the back of a stronger economy and an increase in visitors.

About 5,000 rooms came on stream last year with a further 6,000 expected this year. The new supply is expected to slow room rate growth, potentially hindering yields.

The Hyatt Regency building and its associated shopping centre are to be torn down to make way for a retail and commercial complex. The hotel has held a sale of its property, including limousines, grand pianos, televisions, refrigerators, pots and pans, linen and cutlery. It caused mayhem when thousands of people turned up to buy the goods and police had to be called in.

It is understood, however, that the hotel has kept several pieces of signature inventory for its planned comeback.

The property, with its famous Hugo's French restaurant, where the late Bruce Lee and film boss Raymond Chow met for their first film, is to be replaced by a $1 billion shopping and entertainment complex.
