Nice close-up. I thought the glass was blue-ish, but it actually is more green-ish.

adidas港總部遷觀塘 租金省半
7 March 2009
香港經濟日報

經濟向下,企業為減成本節省開支,紛向非核心區寫字樓進發。著名體育用品品牌adidas,剛承租觀塘Landmark East寫字樓,作為香港區總部,單是租金成本,已節省了一半開支。

14元呎 租Landmark East

市場消息指,adidas剛落實租用南聯地產(01036)旗下Landmark East二座低層單位,面積約4萬平方呎,涉約1層半樓面,每呎租金約14元。

對許多大機構及名牌來說,把寫字樓遷出傳統商業核心區,搬至東九龍這新勢力區,或許尚未接受。不過,在金融海嘯衝擊,節省成本為當務之急,加上東九龍物業質素具吸引力下,跳出核心區未嘗不是好計劃。

若以租金成本計,據了解adidas原租用灣仔華潤大廈,租用樓面面積相若,而該廈平均呎租估計約30元,按此計算,其可節省租金超過一半。有業內人士分析,以Landmark East為例,單計物業質素,可媲美中區甲廈,外形美觀新穎,以潮流指標掛帥的adidas,轉租寫字樓亦可增添活力。

東九龍商廈本年會否成焦點?高力國際九龍商業服務部主管顏慧萍表示,近期東九龍商廈睇樓量急增,反映不少公司對這個新興商業區感興趣,亦符合企業在金融海嘯下減成本的原則,她認為,4月份過後,機構新一年經營成本將落實,料屆時寫字樓搬遷情況會更多。

East Kowloon sees office explosion
Rents face downward pressure as 4.15m sq ft of new commercial space comes on stream

11 March 2009
South China Morning Post

A surge in releases of all grades of new office space in East Kowloon has forced landlords to adopt new strategies to find tenants for the millions of square feet of commercial space coming on stream in the district.

Rents in the district have fallen 16 to 20 per cent from peak levels in September last year, according to Fiona Ngan, a director of the Kowloon commercial department of property consultancy Colliers International.

About 4.15 million sqft of new office space of all grades was completed in Kwun Tong and Kowloon Bay last year, research from property consultancy DTZ shows. That was 264 per cent more than a year earlier and a five-year high.

Adding that to new supply of 1.44 million sqft forecast for completion this year, the cumulative new supply in the district over two years will be 5.59 million sqft, more than double the office space provided at Two International Finance Centre (Two IFC) in Central.

The surge in office projects in East Kowloon has been triggered by the Planning Department and Town Planning Board's rezoning of former industrial sites in Kwun Tong and Kowloon Bay for commercial use since 2001.

Combined with the lure of higher rental income and stronger demand for office than industrial space, the move led many developers to start the commercial projects that are now coming on stream.

By next year, about 80 per cent of the city's available grade-A office space, or 835,286 sq ft, will be located in Kwun Tong and Yau Ma Tei, this year's Hong Kong Property Review, published last week by the Rating and Valuation Department, said.

Among the new releases now on the market is Landmark East at How Ming Street in Kwun Tong, where Winsor Properties says it has leased out about 230,000 sq ft of office space, or about 20 per cent of the total. The building has been occupied since the end of last year.

Samson Chu, a senior leasing director, said the company had previously targeted tenants from the financial sector who were looking to locate back-office functions outside the core office district of Central.

"However, we noticed the financial sector was hard hit by the global [market meltdown], and so our target tenants changed from the financial sector to the IT industry early this year," Mr Chu said.

The building had now attracted tenants from the information technology sector who had relocated from offices in Causeway Bay and North Point, he said.

"New office buildings offer better support facilities for the IT industry. The tenants can upgrade the working environment and save costs by moving into a new building," he said.

Face rents at Landmark East were about HK$18 per square foot, while effective rents after accounting for rent-free periods ranged between HK$14 and HK$16 per square foot, said Mr Chu.

He said that despite the plentiful supply, developers had a consensus on bottom-line rental levels, and a price war in the office leasing market was unlikely.

Rival developer Sino Land launched its Exchange Tower at Wang Chiu Road in Kowloon Bay in the second half of last year, and about 20 per cent of space in the 31-storey development had been leased and was already occupied at the end of last year, agents estimated.

To widen its tenant reach, the developer had subdivided floor spaces from the sixth to the 12th floors into small office units and now offered spaces ranging from 750 sq ft to whole floors of 27,000 sq ft, property agents said.

Ms Ngan said some small developers and individual owners were offering relocation allowances to attract new tenants. "It happened before, when the dotcom bubble burst in 2000. But the effectiveness of this strategy was not obvious," she said.

As the economic outlook remained uncertain, many potential tenants would not make decisions on leasing new offices until next month, Ms Ngan said.

"No matter whether landlords cut asking rents or not, [firms] are waiting for their first-quarter results, which will be released in April," she said.

She said transactions in the leasing market would show little significant growth until the third quarter, and office rents were unlikely to show much increase until the middle of next year, once most of the new office supply in East Kowloon was absorbed.
