牛頭角建天橋 須砍36棵樹
1 November 2008
星島日報

政府計畫在牛頭角下邨重建地皮,設置一條高架行人道,將九龍灣港鐵站與牛頭角市政大廈連接起來;為配合重建計畫,接駁高架行人道的兩條天橋工程須於明年六月展開,以趕及二○一二年二月完成,連同牛頭角第四街和第五街的道路改綫和其他渠務、水務及環境美化工程,局方估計總工程的建設費為一億三千多萬元。

接駁港鐵及市政大廈

根據運輸及房屋局遞交立法的文件,高架行人道將方便重建後的牛頭角上下邨居民,往來牛頭角市政大廈與九龍灣港鐵站,需要建造的兩條接駁行人天橋,一條長十米、寬六米,連接現有牛頭角市政大廈行人天橋;另一條長八十米、寬四米的有蓋接駁行人天橋,則連接現時通往九龍灣港鐵站的行人天橋。

局方預計,工地範圍內有一百三十二棵樹,其中廿七棵將會被保留,而剩餘的一百零五棵樹木中,三十六棵會被砍掉,另外的六十九棵會移植到工地範圍外,局方強調所需移走的樹木都並非珍貴樹木。而為減少建築廢物,局方會要求承建商盡可能再用惰性建築物廢料,如挖掘出的泥土等,及使用木材以外的物料搭建模板,估計工程將產生約五千六百公噸建築廢物。記者 周嘉莉

居屋僅賣逾半 擬凍售半年; 錦豐苑天富苑重災 惟東濤苑售罄
23 December 2008
香港經濟日報

近月地產市道疲弱,新一期居屋銷售接近尾聲,僅售出逾半單位,馬鞍山及天水圍兩屋苑更成重災區。

據悉,為免進一步打擊樓市,政府正考慮明年上半年凍售居屋及夾屋近3,000個餘貨單位,最快亦要明年第三季才會推出。

10月底推出的居屋餘貨3,221個單位,其中最受歡迎的港島筲箕灣東濤苑二期641個單位,昨日已全數售罄;位於黃大仙的瓊軒苑344個單位,亦僅餘下一個單位。但馬鞍山錦豐苑及天水圍天富苑共有逾1,300個單位仍未售出,佔總數近四成半。

定價超二手 逾半棄揀樓

由於上述屋苑以十足市值的定價,比現時同區二手成交價更高,當局預料最終仍有大部分單位未能售出,而準買家放棄揀樓比率仍維持五成以上。

據了解,由於物業市場表現欠佳,居屋銷情亦未如理想,政府正研究明年押後推出原定分兩批銷售的4,130個居屋餘貨單位,初步考慮明年上半年不會出售。至明年中才再視乎市況發展,研究是否在第三季解凍,但絕不會一次過推出,故最後一批最快亦要在2010年上半年才推出。

夾屋亦凍售 地產界歡迎

消息人士又指,房協早前曾向政府提出,希望在明年中兩期居屋餘貨銷售的空檔時間,推出餘下860個夾屋餘貨,但當局初步回應指夾屋有必要暫時凍售,直至樓市表現轉好為止。

房委會發言人回應查詢時表示,會視乎今期居屋餘貨銷售反應,才決定明年兩期餘貨的時間,現階段未有任何具體安排。

中原地產研究部聯席董事黃良昇表示,歡迎政府考慮明年上半年暫停推售資助房屋餘貨單位,因在現時市況下只能賤價出售,且又會打擊私樓二手市場。

他透露,近月地產界人士已不斷游說政府官員,要求明年凍售居屋及夾屋餘貨,相信當局不敢逆市而行,令樓市雪上加霜。

An estate usually houses many buildings, so at least several thousand.

one building typically houses approx. 1.7k-2k residents.
one estate houses 15-20k residents easily.

Housing
30 December 2008
South China Morning Post

Only 59pc of HOS flats sell in latest sale

The Housing Authority has sold about 1,900 of the 3,221 Home Ownership Scheme flats marketed in the latest sale, which ended yesterday. The sales rate, 59 per cent recorded last Tuesday, is one of the lowest since 1997. The lowest was 54 per cent in 2002. About 33 per cent of applicants showed up to buy the flats, left over from the shelved subsidised-housing scheme, in Shau Kei Wan, Wong Tai Sin, Ma On Shan and Tin Shui Wai. Joyce Ng

You gotta love the crappy, yet non-crappy residential blocks in HK... at least they are renovating it. Those towers never look too safe to me.

The quality of the finishing is not spectacular, but they are able to withstand the storms and wear and tear for many decades. I don't think I've heard of a tower collapse due to shoddy workmanship, although a couple had to be torn down during construction due to foundation issues.

Well... it wasn't a technical/engineering issue, but administration.
Everything was designed and met the standard.
The problem was caused by the corrupted head engineer approving shortened foundation piles for money "saving" which lead to number of unsafe structures.
The cost of fixing the problem was greater than rebuilding all buildings, that's why the building got torn down.

漁暉苑代房署白付千萬維修平台
7 January 2009

【太陽報專訊】居者有其屋計劃下首批居屋香港仔居屋屋苑漁暉苑最近大維修,業主立案法團翻查契約,始揭發屋苑平台原來屬房屋委員會所有,即屋苑小業主在過去二十年來一直為房委會保養維修平台,初步點算涉及款項逾千萬元。法團批評,事件揭發後已與房屋署開會十多次,但房署遲遲未退回有關款項。

漁暉苑業主立案法團司庫曾小姐說,屋苑在一九八○年入伙一直由房署管理,到○○年法團成立取回管理權,到○七年法團擬維修屋苑,管理公司翻查契約發現,平台業權屬於房委會。曾小姐表示,在一九八○至二○○○年來,平台的管理、維修、保養、電費等開支達千多萬元,還未計算利息,而單在二○○○年,房署便動用屋苑管理費基金三十萬元,更換平台的遊樂設施。她又說,事件揭發後,法團與房署開會十多次,房署雖承認有錯,但採取拖字訣,遲遲未還款,還說要有單據才肯賠錢,法團認為房署「卸膊」。房署發言人回應說,由於該平台位於屋苑中央,過去誤將平台的管理和維修費用,歸漁暉苑業主立案法團負責,去年大維修時,經房署及法團核實,始發現該部分平台屬於房屋委員會。發言人表示,當發現問題後,房署已積極和法團、管理公司商討解決方法,房署已知會法團提供有關平台的開支單據,待房署查證後,定當將款項撥還法團。

Even the former KWC has a low crime rate despite its gritty appearance. But true security in HK's public housing is better

Although the Home Ownership Scheme built complex are built by the Housing Authority and sold at a lower than market price, but these are still privately owned and maintained. Should they be included in the "Public Housing" thread?
Public housing is more a "rental" facility. Just a thought.

I'm defining public housing as Housing Authority-related, although there are several different tiers. I don't want to start another Housing Authority-related thread for different scheme types. There's not enough content to have them separately.

公屋擬引入 「設計與建造」合約
14 January 2009
香港經濟日報

為令日後公屋設計更多元化,房屋署正研究在啟德公屋計劃其中一期,引入「設計與建造」的合約,由承建商包攬整項工程,有關建議後日將交房委會建築小組決定。

無礙房署員工就業機會

消息人士指出,由承建商一手包辦建築項目的設計及興建工作,好處是可在設計上更多元化,而私營機構掌握物料價格變動的脈搏,也比公營機構更貼市,施工亦有更大彈性及能減省建造時間。

消息人士又稱,新的綜合採購模式不會影響房署建築分處人員的就業機會,因相關工程項目須有一定規模,不少公屋地盤未必適合,故才選擇啟德發展區為試點。有支持新模式的房委會委員更期望,倘居屋推倒重來,這些「私人參建公屋」可變為居屋出售。

富懷舊特色 兩跑道重現

此外,啟德公屋項目將會富有懷舊和歷史特色,如休憩地帶設計意念,會把舊啟德機場以前兩條跑道,重新展現出來。

啟德發展區公屋計劃將於2013年完工,但區內不少配套設施需要待數年後才落成。政府消息人士解釋,為方便公屋居民出入,當局會加建行人隧道及天橋,連接新蒲崗及彩虹等區,加強啟德發展區和附近區域聯繫。

東涌豪宅區擬建公屋 測量師憂拖累地價
7 February 2009

【明報專訊】經濟不景加重公屋需求,房委會落實啟德等市區的公屋計劃後,下一步是在偏遠的東涌覓地,現建議在毗鄰豪宅映灣園、市值達35億元的全海景地皮,興建有3600個單位的屋邨,放棄原來的豪宅發展,預計在2015年落成。測量師陳超國指公屋計劃將拖累該豪宅區的樓價,從商業角度上實屬浪費。區議員則支持興建屋邨,但須有完善地區設施配合。

該幅海濱土地面積達3.3公頃,位於東涌北面的填海區,毗鄰映灣園和藍天海岸等豪宅。據了解,房屋署早於03年已建議在地皮上興建公屋,惟後來地政總署收回地皮並納入06年度的勾地表,供發展中高密度豪宅,地積比率為5倍,可建樓面約177萬平方呎。

設大片綠林 飽覽海景

據悉,房屋署認為覓地建公屋日益困難,加上公屋需求甚殷,擬將03年的公屋計劃重新上馬,此舉可即時創造近1000個職位。

房署與政府部門商討後,在去年3月將地皮剔出勾地表,為公屋計劃開「綠燈」。

房屋署本月中向離島區議會呈交新修訂的公屋發展計劃,房屋署提交文件建議興建4座47至49層高的大廈,提供3600個單位,容納10,300名居民。房屋署表示,邨內將設大片綠化園林,供市民在海濱休憩,另有逾2.3萬平方呎的商場和停車場。4座大廈中有3座可享受無敵海景,公屋居民也可飽覽媲美映灣園等豪宅的機場景色。

料2015年落成

現時該地皮仍未開發,房屋署稍後會與運輸署商討興建道路,除了有巴士和小巴接駁港鐵東涌站外,亦會沿馬路興建單車徑和單車停泊點,基層市民可踏單車來往車站,減少交通費。

整個計劃造價約20億元,房屋署預計2010年下半年可動工,2015年落成。

測量師陳超國表示,從社會角度看,房屋署建公屋無可厚非,但以商業角度看卻屬浪費。他稱,該地皮享有海景,市值高達35億元,並鄰近多個東涌豪宅和勾地表內其他住宅地皮,公屋計劃將使該區住宅地價下調逾5至10%。

區議員﹕有助加快建配套

離島區議員老廣成預料有豪宅區居民反對,但公屋有利整個社區發展,例如可為東涌引入足夠人口,令政府加快興建醫院和其他道路配套等。

東涌56區臨海靚地擬建公屋,庫房收入料減少28億元
10 February 2009
經濟通新聞

於上兩個財政年度均列入勾地表的東涌第56區的住宅用地,現計劃改作公屋發展,擬建四座47至49層高住宅,提供3600個公屋單位,除令可列入勾地表內的臨海靚地減少,亦令政府庫房收入減少達28﹒33億元。

該地位於東涌第56區,坐落於迎禧路,在映灣園東北面,佔地約35﹒41萬平方呎,將按5倍地積比發展,可建總樓面約177﹒05萬平方呎,其中約2﹒23萬平方呎為零售樓面,預計於2010年底動工。
