【 本地要聞 】 核心區甲廈租金超越九七 (2007-06-27 05:05:00)



(星島日報報道)經濟繼續向好,企業擴張,以及外資投資本港,令甲廈需求增加,戴德梁行指出,現時中環甲廈租金超越九七年水平,隨中區供應買少見少,預期甲廈租金年內再升百分之五至十。
  香港回歸祖國將近十年,本地樓市於十年間經歷多個高低潮,近年本地經濟持續好轉,加上中央推出多個利好本港經濟的政策,令本地甲廈重拾升軌,戴德梁行寫字樓部董事阮仲賢指出,現時甲廈租金升幅已超越九七年水平。

  回顧過去十年,本地甲廈租金波幅較住宅市場大,由於九七至九八年間供應過多,再加上受到亞洲金融風暴影響,令甲廈租務市場進入第一個低潮,後來租金稍作回升,但仍不敵二千年科網泡沫爆破影響,令甲廈租金由另一個高峰急轉直下,其後,○四年沙士肆虐,失業率持續高企,更令本地甲廈租金跌至新低。幸而,自沙士後,中央政府推出CEPA及QDII等政策,令本地甲廈租金作V形反彈,由谷底重回谷頂,於去年更升至歷年高位,至今本地甲廈仍未有回落象。

  阮氏預料,隨中區甲寫供應量持續下跌,不少銀行均積極擴充業務,再加上中區可供買賣甲廈選擇不多,預料中區甲廈造價於年內將再上升百分之五至十。另外,阮氐預料,將於一○年落成的新地九龍站環球貿易廣場(ICC),預料可成為本地金融中心新據點。

This tower is now my favorite skyscraper-to-be. It's simple but still so beautiful. I noticed in one rendering there was both ICC and IFC buildings. Are they going to build the other one too? Hong Kong is very impressive looking city.

375m ob deck isnt too bad for a 484m skyscraper.(77% up towers height) youll find most public skyscrapers/towers have the ob deck 3/4 of the way up.
the 553m CN tower had its main observatory at 350m.thats 3/5 up the tower.
The 468m oriental pearl tower has main deck at 280m?
even the new 610m guangzhou tower has ob deck down at 450m.
the 818m Burj Dubai will have ob deck at 442m or 54% up towers height.
Sears tower had its ob deck lev103/412m some 30m from roof. the WTC was a rare example of roof top observation- max 100% height.

agree, 375m for an OB Deck is not bad but you know the OB deck of ICC is in the 100th floor. i can't imagine this floor is in only 375m

the lifts to observatory deck travels 375m doesn't mean that the observatory deck is 375m above ground level. Don't forget that the main entrance of ICC is at podium level.

So the Ob deck of ICC would be around 400m? It would be nice to have it above 400m.
