Bel-Air flat sales generate $8.8b
17 May 2007
Hong Kong Standard

Pacific Century Premium Developments (0432), the property arm of Richard Li Tzar-kai's PCCW (0008), said it has generated HK$8.8 billion from sales for the latest phase of its Bel-Air residential project at Cyberport.

Executive director Wendy Gan Kim-see said that since the phase six sales launch last March, it has pre- sold 500 units worth HK$8.8 billion.

But the company will not be able to book that revenue until the second half of next year, when it is completed. Developers cannot book revenue until they have completed and delivered a unit.

The company is building phase five, comprising 29 townhouses for completion next year.

Gan said the houses are unlikely to be pre-sold this year and that the company would prefer to sell and book the revenue next year as the supply of luxury units remained tight.

For this year, the company still holds ``a small part'' of the units at Maison Bel-Air, which is block five of phase three Bel-Air.

``Some of these could be booked [ this year],'' Gan said.

Maison Bel-Air, with 80 units in one block, was first launched for sale in April 2005 at prices of about HK$13,000 per square foot

An agent said about 80 percent of the block has been sold.

Secondary market prices are about HK$11,000 psf.

Chief operating officer Benjamin Lam Yu-kin said the company is still looking for projects in the mainland and Southeast Asia.

PCPD will pre-sell 220 to 250 units of its Beijing residential project next to its Pacific Century Place in the first half of next year.

Apart from the redevelopment of a telephone exchange at Wo Fung Street in Sheung Wan, Gan said PCPD is looking at three schemes but gave no details.

HONG KONG, Oct 12 Asia Pulse - Pacific Century Premium Developments (SEHK:0432), the property division of Hong Kong communications giant PCCW Limited (SEHK:0008), Thursday announced that it has sold Tower 6 of Bel-Air No 8 to a South Korean company for HK$1.86 billion (US$240 million).

It marks the first Hong Kong venture for Mirae Asset Investment Management, which is under the umbrella of South Korea's Mirae Asset Financial Group.

According to media reports, the high-end residential tower will be retained as an investment property, with forecast rental revenue of between HK$5 million to HK$6 million per month.

They're not 250m tall, and neither are they as bad as you're making out to be (nor as timeless as the advertisements make them out to be ..)

Someone should update the thread title to U/C.

Anyone have something to say about those houses in front of it? my picture shows them, and I feel that they lack any architectural quality considering their exorbitant asking prices.

They're sandwiched in between a wall of 50 storeys. I wouldn't imagine having much privacy at all.

I don't know...what's with that pool-flume on the right there? I think someone flunked a perspective exam in visual literacy.

The environment on HK renderings is anything but real. The actual location environment is a big factor in determining the market value of such flats.

quite rightly, I remember seeing a small tower construction right across from Kai Tak, with a very interesting rendering that placed green all around it
