Hang Lung plans big complex for Dalian
9 May 2009
South China Morning Post

Hang Lung Properties said it would invest 4.5 billion yuan (HK$5.11 billion) to develop a "world-class" shopping centre on a newly acquired commercial site in Dalian, its first land acquisition since February 2007.

The company said it plans to develop the site, currently occupied by a sports stadium, into the city's largest shopping complex, with a total gross floor area of 220,000 square metres.

Executive director Terry Ng Sze-yuen said Hang Lung won the site at an auction for 1.2 billion yuan or 5,382 yuan per square metre.

"Sky-high land values have kept us away from attending auctions for more than two years," he said. "Now is our best opportunity, as there are not many competitors."

Mr Ng said he expects the project, to be named Dalian Hang Lung Plaza, to provide an annual rental return of 5 to 8 per cent.

As the city government needed about 18 months to deliver the site, he said it would be five years before the development would be operational.

So far, Mr Ng said, Hang Lung had committed 25 billion yuan to develop six shopping complexes on the mainland, more than 60 per cent of its 40 billion yuan investment target. The other five, due to be completed between next year and 2012, are in Shenyang, Tianjin, Wuxi and Jinan.

"Frankly speaking, Hang Lung has no competitor at all, as domestic developers lack expertise in building shopping malls to international standards," said Raymond Ngai of JP Morgan Securities. "The local government prefers a landmark project to be developed in the city centre."

But he noted that developers' recent acquisitions in a variety of cities indicated a vote of confidence in the property market's prospects.

In less than two weeks, Hang Lung, Greenland Group, Gemdale Corp and Shimao Property Holdings have spent more than 3.6 billion yuan to buy land in Shanghai and Qingdao.

Greenland has secured a 186,500 sq metre residential development site on the outskirts of Shanghai for 957 million yuan in the city's biggest land deal this year.

Another mainland developer, Gemdale Corp, outbid nine competitors to win an 83,645 sq metre residential site in Shanghai's Qingpu district for 560 million yuan, about 82 per cent above the opening bid.

Shimao made its first acquisition in 15 months by securing a Qingdao commercial and residential site through a partnership for HK$920 million.

Separately, Soho China yesterday announced the company had generated 635 million yuan from sales of Zhong Guan Cun Soho commercial project on the first day of sale.

The average sales price of the office space was 33,000 yuan per square metre, while the average price of retail space was 90,000 yuan per square metre.

Intel's $2.5B Dalian Plant To Use 65-Nanometer Process Tech
19 June 2009

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Intel Corp. (INTC), the world's biggest chip maker by revenue, said Friday its new chip plant in Dalian, China, will be adopting 65-nanometer process technology to make chipsets when it starts production in 2010.

In 2007, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based chip maker said it would invest $2.5 billion in its first plant in Asia using 300-millimeter wafers.

Plants using 300mm wafers can cut manufacturing costs by about 30% compared with plants that use older generation 200mm wafers.

The chipsets will be used in Intel's mainstream CPU platforms for laptops, desktops and such products as ultra-thin and affordable laptops, the company said.

'The construction of Fab 68 is not affected by the global economic recession, and it will be operational in 2010 as scheduled,' said Kirby Jefferson, general manager of Intel Semiconductor (Dalian), in a statement.

'Intel is confident in the economic growth in China and its northeast region, and we are committed to introducing advanced technologies to China and supporting the growth of IT ecosystem in Dalian. The cutting-edge chip sets manufactured in Fab 68 will be vital for Intel's future and strategy.'

Intel joins a growing list of global technology firms setting up a production site in China to tap rising demand for chips used in mobile devices and other consumer electronics.

China is the world's biggest market for cellphones and the second biggest for personal computers, and its factories produce many of the cellphones and PCs sold in other markets.

Lower manufacturing costs and the Chinese government's willingness to attract foreign investment in its chip sector have lured companies including chip makers Hynix Semiconductor Inc. of South Korea and STMicroelectronics NV of Switzerland.

Flash memory card maker SanDisk Corp. also opened a $170 million chip assembly and testing factory in China in 2007.

Intel said construction of the new plant is expected to be completed later this summer and it will start installing equipment afterward.

The plant already employs more than 500 local workers and it plans to have up to 1,500 workers when the plant fully ramps up.

China approves new economic zone in NE coast

SHENYANG, July 1 (Xinhua) -- China's State Council, the Cabinet, approved plans Wednesday to develop the coastal economic belt in the northeastern Liaoning Province in effort to rejuvenate the traditional industrial base.

The economic belt, covering about 700 square km, will focus on shipbuilding, petroleum refining, advanced equipment manufacturing, raw materials, high-tech industries and agriculture processing, according to the plan.

The zone comprises ports of Dalian, Jinzhou, Yingkou, Huludao and Dandong, which opened navigation services to more than 140 countries and regions.

"The zone will become an important engine for the rejuvenation of the the northeast industrial base," said Lin Muxi, Economics School dean of Liaoning University.

"Since the Chinese government started to develop eastern coastal cities such as Shenzhen and Shanghai, the Pearl River delta and the Yangtze River delta have seen rapid growth," he said. "Now the government is paying closer attention to the underdeveloped regions like Liaoning and Guangxi."

Previously, China gave the green light to the coastal areas in east China's Jiangsu Province, the Beibu Bay in Guangxi and the economic zone on the western side of Taiwan strains in Fujian Province.
