Amazing rendering and another huge project for Hongkong. Seems like there is just so less space, that there will be Highrise projects forever and ever...

Healthy outlook for Kwun Tong
The Standard
Wednesday, November 21, 2012

The government plans to spend HK$105 million on new health facilities in Kwun Tong after existing sites are cleared for redevelopment.

It will also spend HK$95 million on building footbridge systems with lifts to link Yuet Wah Street to Kwun Tong MTR station, a Development Bureau spokesman said yesterday.

The Kwun Tong Town Centre plan, occupying a site area of 570,000 square feet, will be the largest single project undertaken by the Urban Renewal Authority.

It will affect about 1,653 property interests and 5,000 people.

To tie in with the redevelopment, the URA will be responsible for reprovisioning the existing medical and health facilities of the Kwun Tong Jockey Club Health Centre to a site at Yuet Wah Street and the Kwun Tong Road and Hoi Yuen Road roundabout.

The bureau has proposed expanding the center to meet the growing demand for health- care services by those living in the district.

The population of Kwun Tong is expected to jump about 7.2percent from 622,200 in 2011 to 666, 900 in 2019.

The bureau spokesman said the health-care needs of residents and their dependence on services will continue to grow.

The redevelopment project offers an excellent opportunity to expand medical and health services to meet the aspirations of the local community for a better quality of life, he added. The methadone clinic run by the Department of Health will be reprovisioned at the site of Kwun Tong Road and Hoi Yuen Road roundabout.

Also, the Labour Department occupational health clinic and occupational safety and health center, Hospital Authority general outpatient clinic and Department of Health maternal and child health center and government dental clinic will be rebuilt at the Yuet Wah Street site.

Upon project completion, relevant government departments will take over the facilities for subsequent operation, management and maintenance. Meanwhile, the government will build an elevated covered footbridge on Yuet Wah Street and a covered pedestrian walkway linking Kwun Tong MTR station.

At present, Yuet Wah Street is only connected to Kwun Tong Road by a staircase with 180 steps.

The project is designed to provide barrier- free access between Yuet Wah Street and Kwun Tong Road and Kwun Tong MTR station, to benefit the local community as a whole, and in particular, the aged and disabled.

URA eyes smaller flats
The Standard
Thursday, July 31, 2014

The Urban Renewal Authority is expected to allow more smaller flats to be built while re- tendering the massive Kwun Tong town center project later this month.

Part of the project terms will be amended to attract more interest from developers after the site failed to secure a winner among four bidders on Tuesday.

Although the four developers were said to submit prices far below URA's minimum investment target of HK$8 billion, sources said the authority is unlikely to break the mega project into smaller parts for tender. The project would be delayed for completion while it also limits the design of the residential buildings.

But it will consider scrapping the condition of building 1,700 residential units sized above 600 square feet, the sources added, as it was set in 2006 and might not meet the current market demand. Instead the developer can build at least 1,700 smaller flats.

The site has a total residential gross floor area of 1.5 million sq ft which could build four towers for residential use above the four-story podium.

Meanwhile, the authority also plans to relax the construction schedule of building the 300,000 sq ft podium comprising a two-level public transport interchange, hawker's bazaar, refuse collection point and other amenities.

The original term said the future owner must build the podium first within 45 months or face a fine.

Six in new bid for URA site
The Standard
Wednesday, August 27, 2014





The Urban Renewal Authority's Kwun Tong redevelopment project received six tenders, including Henderson Land Development (0012), Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016), Wheelock (0020) and Great Eagle (0041), which bid for the second time after the tender failed last month.

Cheung Kong (0001) and Sino Land (0083) joined the tender for the first time, while Wheelock (0020) partnered with New World Development (0017) and Nan Fung Development this time for the project.

It is believed to involve a total investment of HK$18 billion and similar in size to Tai Koo Shing, covering 5.25 hectares.

Henderson Land and SHKP submitted bids on their own.

The tender of URA's largest project failed because bids were far lower than the HK$8 billion entry fee.

URA re-tendered the site after revising tender terms and scrapping the entry fee requirement and closed the tender yesterday.

URA also extended the completion date for the non-residential and public facilities above the podium to 72 months.

Wheelock vice chairman Stewart Leung Chi-kin believes tenderers will not submit bids that are higher than HK$8 billion. Cushman & Wakefield director Vincent Cheung Kiu-cho said it is unlikely the tender will fail again as many large developers have shown interest.

Meanwhile, two residential sites at Tuen Mun and Lei Yue Mun will be put up for tender next month.

The Tuen Mun site for private residential use has an area of 118,921 square feet. At least 735 units have to be built.

The Lei Yue Mun site for non- industrial purposes measures 34,875 square feet, with at least 345 units to be built.

Cheung Kong (0001) will start sales of Hemera, the third phase of Lohas Park in Tseung Kwan O, early next month. A total of 1,648 units will be offered.

Jumbo site awarded
The Standard
Tuesday, September 02, 2014



Sino Land (0083) and Chinese Estates (0127) have won the mega Kwun Tong redevelopment project of the Urban Renewal Authority on its second tender.

The 5.25-hectare town center site - as big as Tai Koo Shing - is the biggest URA project so far. It received six bids after the URA amended some of the terms following the failure of the first tender in July.

Sino Land and Chinese Estates did not submit bids in the initial tender.

But yesterday they outbid Cheung Kong Holdings (0001), Henderson Land Development (0012), Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016), Great Eagle (0041) and a consortium consisting of Wheelock (0020), New World Development (0017) and Nan Fung Development.

The URA said the bid made by the Sino Land-Chinese Estates consortium met tender requirements.

It did not disclose the tendered price, but the winning bid was rumored to be below HK$7 billion - and therefore sharply lower than the HK$8 billion entry fee sought earlier but later scrapped.

Sino Land owns 90 percent of the consortium and the rest is held by Chinese Estates, Victor Tin Siu-yuen, associate director of sales at Sino, said.

The site is estimated to require investment of HK$18 billion, including the building of 1,700 flats totaling a gross floor area of 1.5 million square feet, shops in a podium, a two-level public transport interchange, a hawker bazaar and a refuse collection point.

A public open space of about 67,000 sq ft will also have to be provided.

Tin noted there is a great potential in Kowloon East with plans to make it another commercial business district.

Sino Land has also developed Park Metropolitan, a 299-unit single story project besides the redevelopment plot.

The project is expected to be sold out by the end of the year. The latest batch of 30 units cost about HK$14,467-HK$24,889 per sellable sq ft, or a minimum HK$9.31 million after discounts.

More than 250 units have been sold since last year.

Midland Surveyors director Alvin Lam Tsz-bun said the successful tender will ensure the residential supply target of the government is met, relieving pressure on other land tenders to be launched later this year.

After the first-time tender failed, the URA made several amendments. But it stuck to its requirement of 1,700 mid- to large-sized flats, despite many developers wanting to build more small units in line with demand.

I hope what happened to those poor 70s apartments will not happen to the buildings of our time.
