Kwun Tong home owners hope for holiday windfall
Hong Kong Standard
Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Residents are hoping for a HK$10,215 per square foot Christmas windfall from the Urban Renewal Authority's Kwun Tong Town Centre Project.

Active owners who have formed a 1,000-strong alliance, headed by Helen Wong Ya-man, have hired an independent surveyor, Wayne Lee Wing-kwan, to assess the amount of compensation they should receive for their homes. Lee has come up with HK$10,215 per square foot by comparing flats in different districts.

According to Lands Department guidelines for compensation, the comparison should be with replacement buildings about seven years old and similar in characteristics and accessibility.

Since the Kwun Tong area has no buildings in that age range, Lee compared flats in Hung Hom, Tsim Sha Tsui and other districts which he deemed to be similar in characteristics to Kwun Tong.

The URA will be presenting its own assessment results from 11 surveyors to the residents before Christmas, although residents have asked for a more open discussion on compensation matters.

URA to set Kwun Tong offer price in December
21 October 2008
Hong Kong Standard

The close to 1,800 residents to be relocated as a result of the Kwun Tong town center development will be given an across-the-board offer price in December by the Urban Renewal Authority.

However, about 500 residents whose buildings are among the last to be demolished, will have the option of accepting the offer or waiting for a revised price 4 years later.

URA chief Barry Cheung Chun-yuen said that in earlier negotiations, residents had requested the same offer be made to all regardless of when they needed to be relocated.

The URA has commissioned 11 independent surveyors to come up with a suitable offer that reflects the market value of the properties.

``This is being done entirely for the benefit of the tenants,'' Cheung said. ``If we gave different offer prices at different times in accordance with the development phases of the project, the tenants would say it was unfair.''

Tenants of area five do not need to be relocated until near the end of the 12-year project, which Cheung said was one of the largest redevelopment and rehabilitation schemes the authority has undertaken.

If the entire project area was vacated at once, it would seriously disrupt operations and traffic and affect the atmosphere of the area.

``But there is no unfairness to tenants of other phases in our proposal,'' Cheung said.

觀塘市中心重建 高廈方案較利通風
10月29日 星期三 05:05

【明報專訊】總成本高達300億元的市區重建局觀塘市中心重建計劃,將作最後規劃審議。市建區剛提交補充資料,指出就擬建高280米的68層地標商廈,已委託顧問作空氣流通評估,指出結論是興建至280米,較興建至220米,會為區內附近帶來較佳空氣流通。

市建局顧問報告指出,報告比較興建一幢280米與一幢220米建築物,對逾100個測試點的風速的影響,結果顯示於逾70%試點,建280米較建220米,提供較高風速,包括一些重要的街道如物華街、月華街、康寧道等,而只有少於8%試點,顯示建220米提供較高風速。市建局總結,較纖幼及高聳的大廈,能為觀塘市中心重建,提供更佳空氣流通環境。

市建局提月華街地盤兩修訂

另外,因回應產業署及建築署的意見,市建局向城規會,輕微修訂月華街地盤發展設計,包括 :(1)把住客停車場遷至最低層 ;(2)把住客停車場的汽車出入口遷至協和街與擬議的觀塘賽馬會診所汽車出入口共用。

觀塘市中心重建計劃建議將賽馬會健康院現址清拆重建成一座68層高商廈,包括61層寫字樓和酒店等,另有3層空中花園及隔火層,和4層地庫。由於有新提交資料,城規會收取意見暫至11月18日。

Yes! I'm so happy someone has finally come to his senses and realized the solution to skyscraper walls is not to build a tighter, shorter wall, but taller, well-spaced pillars.

斥逾億元綠化觀塘深水絈
01/11/2008


【本報訊】繼港島之後,土木工程拓展署進一步斥資一億一千二百萬元,制訂觀塘及深水絈綠化總綱圖,其中九龍灣、觀塘、茶果嶺及鯉魚門一帶,會以「翠堤灣畔」為綠化主題,種植鐵刀木、野杜英、黃槿及風鈴木等,以配合九龍灣商業區及區內正進行大型重建工程,將會重新注入活力及朝氣等。而在牛頭角及藍田一帶,則會以「曉巒翠景」作主題,種植宮粉羊蹄甲及藍花楹等,以配合地方名稱。

深水絈主題「金影花筒」
土木工程拓展署估計要觀塘區達致短期綠化目標,需栽種喬木及灌木共約八十四萬二千多棵,預計工程費約七千萬元。

舊樓林立的深水絈區會以「金影花筒」為綠化主題,種植秋楓、複羽葉欒樹、黃花風鈴木及紫壇等,延續毗鄰旺角及油麻地區的綠化主題「綠色萬花筒」。而石硤尾則以「彩峰倚雲」作主題,在現有住宅區的適當位置,種植楓香、紅花羊蹄甲及其他植物品種,配合區內自然優雅的居住環境。

深水絈區的短期綠化目標是種植五十多萬棵喬木及灌木,預計工程費約四千二百萬元。兩個區域的綠化工程最快會於明年第四季展開,二○一一年底完成。

有區議員促請政府盡快進行綠化工程及加強保育已栽種的樹木,防止樹木因為保養不周而倒塌。

觀塘重建收購價料跌一成
每戶少收40萬元 自嘲「累慢苦主」

22/11/2008



【本報訊】金融海嘯衝擊樓巿,巿區重建局下月底提出觀塘重建項目的收購價預料受牽連。受影響業主自聘測量師估計,每實用平方呎收購價應為九千二百多元,較兩個月前估價跌一成,即每戶實際最少少收四十萬元。觀塘重建業主大聯盟自嘲已成「累慢苦主」,受累巿建局拖慢收購,重申不排除透過立法會及司法程序申訴。

大聯盟九月中委託獨立測量師行,根據灣仔、紅磡等五個地利及交通便捷程度與觀塘巿中心類似的約七年樓價,訂出觀塘每實用平方呎收購價為一萬零二百一十五元,但金融海嘯令樓價普遍下跌兩至三成,本月中最新估價已跌一成至每實用平方呎九千二百三十三元。

質疑市建局干預獨立估價
大聯盟擔心,樓巿近月交投淡靜,巿建局委託的測量師或以不完整及不正常的數據評估收購價,又質疑巿建局主席張震遠早前表明觀塘要逾萬元收購價是「荒謬」的說法,有干預獨立估價之嫌,要求巿建局公布收購價前先公開測量報告。

大聯盟副主席王一民補充,巿建局以往十多個重建項目的收購價均可達到舊樓巿值的三倍至五點七倍,以觀塘巿中心約四十年舊樓最新呎價為四千一百多元推算,居民期望收購價可達每呎一萬三千五百元。

大聯盟正計劃進一步行動,包括諮詢法律意見及向立法會申訴部申訴,要求巿建局就拖緩收購及干預估價等向居民交代。巿建局發言人重申,按既定公平公開的機制,如期在年底向居民提出收購價。

Vote on 280-metre tower delayed
6 December 2008
South China Morning Post

The Town Planning Board will delay approving the plan for a 280-metre building in a revamped Kwun Tong town centre - until the Urban Renewal Authority provides it with more proof that the building will not block ventilation and be an eyesore.

Board members yesterday studied the master layout plan for the Kwun Tong redevelopment, the centrepiece of which is the iconic office-and-hotel tower that will jut out of surrounding buildings by at least 80 metres.

In response to airflow concerns raised previously, the URA has said the building would not adversely affect its surrounding environment.

It was also designed to be the landmark that Kowloon East residents had asked for.

"A landmark does not necessarily mean a super high-rise," board member Daniel To Boon-man said yesterday. He also feared that the ridgeline of Fei Ngor Shan would be blocked by the building from Lei Yu Mun and Shau Kei Wan.

Given its floor area, the authority has said, a shortened building would become too bulky and might reduce airflow and visual penetration. The podium of eight to 14 storeys, on which the building sits, could also act as a noise barrier. It said a building lower than 260 metres would not be seen clearly at the seven vantage points suggested in the Planning Department's guidelines.

Board member Leslie Chen Hung-chi questioned the validity of the results of the URA's air ventilation assessment, saying models used in the assessment were not of precise configuration.

District planning officer Eric Yue Chi-kin said yesterday that the study assessed only the airflow impact of two scenarios, for buildings that were 220 metres and 280 metres tall.

The preliminary development plan had already been approved by the chief executive in September.

城規會建議觀塘市中心建瞭望台
6 December 2008
信報

市區重建局旗下主要舊區重建項目觀塘市中心重建計劃最新方案剛獲城規會審議,其中現為巴士總站的月華街地盤,方案得到順利通過,至於主地盤則因城規會認為市建局未能充分證明地標建築物高度須達二百八十米(主水平基準上.下同),決定押後審議,並要求市建局考慮在地標建築物設置瞭望台。

佔地超過四點六公頃的主地盤,擬發展四幢住宅、一個大型平台作零售等用途,以及一幢樓高二百八十米的地標式商業建築。其中長期受到各方爭議的地標式建築物,再次成為了會議的焦點。

再評估通風設施

市建局表示,地標式建築物屬於社區的訴求,而二百八十米的高度,較二百二十米在景觀等方面的影響輕微,唯城規會委員認為,高建築物不代表可成為地標建築,而市建局的技術研究,尚未提供足夠理據證明項目的高度不會對區內通風和景觀構成不良影響,加上大型平台或會影響通風,故要求市建局進行更詳細的空氣流通評估和景觀影響評估等。

此外,城規會委員亦普遍認為,地標建築的高度足以讓人眺望南中國海的景觀,建議市建局研究在大樓上設置一個瞭望台。城規會冀市建局盡快完成有關修訂,稍後將交由昨天審議方案的都會規劃小組委員會再行討論。

發展模式相對簡單的月華街地盤,屬於整個重建計劃首個發展的地盤,將興建一幢四十層住宅連會所等建築物,討論過程相對順利。城規會認為發展方案符合規劃大綱的要求,當局亦可在稍後圖則等程序上就項目作進一步監管,故批准發展方案。

市建局發言人表示,歡迎城規會批准月華街地盤的方案,對於主地盤的方案遭押後審議,市建局將有待詳細會議紀錄完成後,就有關文件所要求的條款再作跟進。

收購計劃不受影響

項目的發展方案雖然仍有待城規會完全通過,項目的收購計劃則可望不受影響。市建局主席張震遠重申,收購賠償的計劃將不會受到影響,局方將照原定計劃在年底前向業主提出收購。

城規會昨天亦審議土瓜灣好收成貨運中心用地改建住宅的申請,城規會認為,用地的高度遠高於分區大綱圖的限制,加上平台的面積過大,將會影響鄰近地區所營造的社區氣氛,故不批准有關申請,至於長沙灣永康街經緯商業大廈改建為一幢酒店的申請,則獲得城規會批准。

另一邊廂,有財團就大埔汀角丈量約份第十七約多個地段的「農業」用地,改劃為「其他指定用途」註明「度假酒店及其他康樂設施」用途,以發展一個水療度假酒店項目,擬興建三十三間度假屋,提供不多於一百二十個客房。項目佔地約五十三萬方呎,地積比率低於零點三倍,總樓面約十四萬七千方呎。

早年發展商曾申請將用地改為「康樂」用地,發展度假營連康樂設施,以地積比率零點四倍發展,興建二十三幢建築物,設八十六個營舍,唯遭城規會拒絕■

Kwun Tong flat owners change tack in URA row
27 December 2008
South China Morning Post

An alliance of affected property owners in the Kwun Tong redevelopment project has advertised to invite developers to acquire their flats at a higher price than that offered by the Urban Renewal Authority.

"The best choice available in the financial tsunami," Alliance of Kwun Tong's Urban Renewal said in a newspaper advert, offering to sell about 100 flats, about 6 per cent of the project's total.

Each of the flats' area exceeded 400 square feet, it said. The vice-chairwoman of the alliance, Helen Wong Yat-man, said two developers had approached her.

The owners would prefer to sell at a higher price rather than to the authority for HK$5,937 per square foot of saleable floor area.

She hoped developers would consider the high potential of the site and co-develop the residential and commercial project with the authority, citing the example of Nga Tsin Wai village in Kowloon City.

But joint development could mean a change in the authority's development plan, which has already won approval from the Town Planning Board.

The authority said joint development was not possible.

Nga Tsin Wai was a special case and would not apply to Kwun Tong, a spokesman said, as the developer, Cheung Kong (Holdings), had acquired more than 70 per cent of property interests long before the authority announced the redevelopment plan. The authority will this month issue offer letters to owners which they can accept within 90 days.

If any developer wanted to solely develop the site, it would have to acquire 90 per cent of property interests, which would be a difficult task, Midland Surveyors director Alvin Lam Tsz-pun said.

URA sticks to offer price
5 January 2009
Hong Kong Standard

The Urban Renewal Authority has said it will not budge from its HK$5,937 per square foot offer to property owners affected by the Kwun Tong town center redevelopment.

Authority chairman Barry Cheung Chun-yuen warned that if residents reject the deal, which the URA claims is 2.5 times market price, they may face a lower offer as a result of declining property prices.

Despite one resident accepting a HK$3.9 million offer for a flat last Wednesday, the day after residents received offer letters, Cheung said it is too early to say how many residents will accept.

But even as hundreds of Kwun Tong residents staged a second protest yesterday to demand as much as HK$13,000 psf for their properties, he said he was confident owners would find the offer attractive.

"If the 700 owner-occupiers who account for more than half of the residents accept the offer within 90 days I will see our goal accomplished," Cheung told The Standard.

Kwun Tong is the largest redevelopment project in URA history and could take up to , 12 years to complete. Under the redevelopment ordinance the URA can seek government permission for a mandatory land purchase regardless of how many residents have accepted an offer for their properties.

Despite a potential decline in earnings from project sales for the year to March 2009, Cheung said the URA had enough cash for acquisitions and development.

"We have about HK$10 billion in cash on hand and continuous income from project sales," Cheung said.

The AA-plus rating the URA recently received from Standard & Poor's meant it was in a strong position to raise funds via a bond offering or through bank loans, he said.

The authority has contacted lenders with a view to issuing HK$1 billion in bonds to finance the HK$12 billion Kwun Tong project, but Cheung stressed that discussions were only in the initial stages.

觀塘重建戶330萬入市星河明居

【明報專訊】市建局剛宣布以呎價近6000元,出價收購觀塘市中心進行重建後,該批重建戶亦開始於市場,尤其是於東九龍區內物色物業,更開始出現入市個案。美聯聯席區域經理容民基表示,一名觀塘重建戶剛以330萬元買入星河明居一個3房單位,呎價4394元。

他表示,該單位位於C座中層6室,面積751方呎,成交價330萬元;原業主於98年5月以一手價347萬元買入,終帳面蝕讓17萬元。他又稱,該名買家雖獲賠償,但仍向銀行申請按揭,並指星河明居至昨天共錄約3宗成交,已逼近上月全月共錄4宗成;近日這類重建戶的睇樓量亦增加,在10名睇樓客中約有2名為重建戶。
