HONG KONG | Cullinan West | 45 - 41 fl x 7 | T/O

West Rail projects cut to improve air flow
Government tipped to lose over HK$2b

19 November 2008
South China Morning Post





The government has decided to trim two controversial projects along the West Rail line after concerns were expressed that they might add to the city's air-flow problems.

The development density at Nam Cheong station will be reduced by 18 per cent, while it will be trimmed by 15 per cent at Yuen Long station.

However, the reductions, which a surveyor estimates will result in the loss of more than HK$2 billion in government revenue, have been criticised as insufficient by an architect, district councillors and an environmentalist.

The new proposals were released by the Development Bureau yesterday in a paper submitted to the Legislative Council a year after the chief executive promised a review.

The floor area at Nam Cheong station will be cut by 18 per cent, equivalent to the loss of an office tower and a residential tower from the 11 high-rises in the original plan.

The buildings' height will be lowered by six storeys and the podium level lowered by two levels. Two visual corridors, 28 metres and 30 metres wide, will be kept, increasing wind speeds in neighbouring Fu Cheong Estate by an estimated 20 per cent and those in Nam Cheong Estate by 10 per cent.

In Yuen Long, two residential towers closest to the New Yuen Long Town Centre have been cut from the original nine, reducing the gross floor area by 15 per cent. Building heights will be lowered by one to three storeys and the podium level will be lowered by one level to 11 metres.

With two visual corridors, one 30 metres wide and the other 130 metres wide, wind speeds in a neighbouring residential development are expected to improve by 13 per cent.

A source who used to work at the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation, the government's former development agent for the two projects, described the proposal as a "pragmatic approach", while adding "it offers little help in contributing to the wind environment".

Except for the northern site at Yuen Long station, gaps between buildings are less than a third of the total length of the sites, which architects said was the minimum space that should be kept to avoid a wall effect.

Surveyor Charles Chan Chiu-kwok estimated a combined reduction in land premium of about HK$2.28 billion at a market price of HK$2,600 per square foot for flats at Nam Cheong and HK$1,600 per square feet for Yuen Long.

Chinese University architecture professor Essy Baniassad said the fundamental planning problems of the Nam Cheong site would not be solved unless the design layout and its connection with the community were improved.

Sham Shui Po District Council vice-chairman Tam Kwok-kiu said the two visual corridors at Nam Cheong would not be sufficient for an elongated site with a length of three to four streets.

Yuen Long district councillor Siu Long-ming said the Sun Yuen Long Centre, sandwiched between the two Yuen Long station development sites, would still be dwarfed by the seven towers.

Green Sense president Roy Tam Hoi-pong, who wanted the development density cut by half, said the towers at Nam Cheong station still formed a wall blocking sea breezes from penetrating the inner town.

A government spokesman said the projects would be submitted to the Town Planning Board early next year after consultations with district councils.

Opposition to revised Nam Cheong scheme
24 November 2008
South China Morning Post

The development density at Nam Cheong West Rail station shouldbe lowered further to maintain good air flow, residents living on a nearby public housing estate urged yesterday.

Their call came after the government announced last week that two out of 11 high-rise blocks would be deleted from an approved residential development scheme at the station. A reduction in density will also take place at Yuen Long station.

Residents of Fu Cheong Estate, located behind Nam Cheong's waterfront development site, told a district councillor at a consultation forum yesterday that they were dissatisfied with the revised scheme.

The building layout should change as well as the density, said Chan Mei-tim, a 70-year-old woman living in Fu Ying House, opposite the railway station.

Although the new scheme will add two wind corridors between the blocks to raise wind speeds, Ms Chan said the blocks should be moved sideways to leave a wider gap in the middle, to allow sunlight and wind to reach the central open ground within Fu Cheong Estate.

"We do a lot of activities on this open ground. And we old folk like to sit there to enjoy the sunlight and breezes. It's good for our eyes and health," she said.

Frederick Fung Kin-kee, lawmaker and Sham Shui Po district councilor, said the government should clarify the air flow change.

"It has only said the new scheme, compared to the original, will increase wind speeds in Fu Cheong Estate by 20 per cent, but it did not compare how wind flows are with and without the development."

Mak Kan-nui, a merchandiser living on the estate, said four or five high-rises should be deleted from the plan, not just two.

"Sham Shui Po district has hills at the back and will have this tower wall in the front. The area will become like a basin if this long wall is allowed. It'll be even hotter in summer."

The project will go to the district council for consultation and then be submitted to the Town Planning Board early next year.

Building on sensitivity to the public's opinions
25 November 2008
South China Morning Post

Such circumstances would have seemed inconceivable at this time two years ago, when the Star Ferry and Queen's piers were being demolished. Authorities went doggedly ahead with the project despite protests of a like rarely seen in Hong Kong. It was a wake-up call to the government: preserving the past and caring for the environment were suddenly matters it had to consider when approving developments. Each of the announcements of the past week highlight concerns that have since become central to thinking about how our city should evolve.

The so-called wall effect of tall buildings side by side, blocking air flow and sunlight, was behind the Nam Cheong move. Hopewell's skyscraper would have affected traffic flows and residents' views, and risen above the ridgeline of hills. The decision yesterday goes to the heart of the issue that the Star Ferry debacle prompted: our heritage. That each case involved different issues shows an understanding of how wide-ranging community needs and wishes are. The government's involvement in one, a private developer in the other and a statutory body in the third revealed that the message has penetrated all involved in the development sector.

URA chairman Barry Cheung Chun-yuen says in an opinion article on the facing page that the challenge is to "find a practical way to address everyone's concerns". He said in announcing the revised Staunton Street plans that public views had been carefully listened to. This is the right approach: development has to be based on meeting the expectations of those involved through consultation, discussion and - if necessary - give-and-take.

This is what has happened in the Staunton Street project. The URA is a self-funding organisation, and its decision to decrease the size of the building will mean a loss of at least HK$170 million - but it will help preserve the character of the area. Another part of the project, a 28-storey building, will remain; a park will be created and a Victorian-era wall preserved; three of 12 tenement buildings will remain, and the ones to be demolished will be replaced by appropriate structures. These are sensible steps. But such projects are always controversial and some residents remain unhappy.

It is rare that the expectations of all concerned are met. Hong Kong, like all cities, needs development. But it has to be a matter of balance and compromise. Projects should not be unduly delayed, nor pushed through in the face of strong opposition. The scaling back of plans announced in the past week, and the generally positive public response, bodes well for the future.

減低密度 創造空間
2 December 2008

【太陽報專訊】香港鐵路站的上蓋物業,建築密度偏高,導致屏風效應的出現。西鐵站的上蓋發展,包括元朗、南昌及荃灣西,均屬高密度的規劃,多年來反對聲音不絕。政府及港鐵近日卻一反常態,突然公布大幅縮減住宅建築面積,令社會各界大感意外。元朗及南昌的上蓋發展計劃,其實早應作出大幅修改。按照原本的建議,元朗站上蓋發展項目,地積比率高達四點六四倍,港鐵可在上蓋興建九座樓高一百一十至一百七十米的高密度住宅。而南昌站的項目,地積比率高達八倍,住宅單位數目更達四千個以上。雖然此等項目極有可能形成屏風樓,然而,政府當局為了協助港鐵謀取暴利,最終無視居民的反對,接受上述的發展方案。自從政府批准港鐵在西鐵站上蓋興建大型屋苑,反對之聲此起彼落。由於社會人士的強烈反對,元朗及南昌站的住宅項目,過去數年均停滯不前。政府近日終於願意作出讓步,大幅降低元朗及南昌站項目的地積比率,南昌站的地積比率由八倍減至六點六倍,而元朗站則由四點六四倍減至三點六三倍,令兩個屋苑的住宅單位數目減少兩成以上,並規定在住宅樓宇間預留空位,以防出現大型屏風樓,阻礙空氣流通。筆者認為,上述的修訂,仍未能完全解決元朗、南昌站上蓋發展項目過度密集的問題,而有關的改變,更沒有涉及荃灣西站的發展項目。政府選擇性的做法,實令人感到困惑。荃灣西站項目的密度跟南昌站及元朗站不遑多讓,而對地區環境的破壞亦甚為嚴重。故此,政府應從速減低荃灣西站項目的建築密度,以改善該區的空氣流通及居住環境。城市的發展,雖然必須地盡其用,但高密度的發展,必會破壞土地應有的潛力,更會令居民的生活受到嚴重的損害。減低建築密度,創造更多空間,應是當前香港城市發展的大趨勢。

社區考察 感受熱力 屏風樓堵塞風光污染環境
1 December 2008
星島日報

教學分享——香港真光中學

爭議多時的西鐵南昌站及元朗站上蓋發展屏風樓問題,經檢討後,發展商終於同意降低發展項目密度。可是近年分別於荃灣及大角嘴興建的高密度住宅大廈,造成「屏風效應」,引起同區居民的不滿。香港真光中學特別於通識科課程「可持續發展」的單元「環境與我」中加入「屏風樓」考察活動,讓中二同學了解本地「屏風樓」現象及其對社區的影響。採訪、攝影:謝婉雯

香港地小人多,為配合持續增長的人口,興建商業及住宅用途的高樓大廈已是司空見慣的事情。可是,解決了人口居住及商用的問題後,「屏風樓」卻衍生出通風、空氣污染,以及採光不足等問題,對區內工作及居住的市民造成不良的影響。環保觸覺負責人何嘉寶表示,「早於二○○六年,環保觸覺已聯同多位建築師及城市規劃師,擬定了六個屏風樓宇的指標,符合三個或以上的便很大可能是一個屏風建築物。」

影響耗電量有增無減

今次香港真光中學的考察是由環保觸覺成員何嘉寶帶領,而通識科黃顥頤老師表示,「其實很多市民也不清楚何謂屏風樓,當然也不會知道甚麼是屏風效應,但屏風效應令近年香港的氣溫不斷上升,人們開冷氣的耗電量亦有增無減,造成不同程度的污染。」他補充,「鑑於中二通識科的課程涉及環境與人們生活的影響,因此教材中特別加入與香港人息息相關的屏風樓現象的探討,以令學生更早對此問題有初步的認識,使他們更加關注。」

中二級的劉芷瑋同學表示,「考察活動前,我們在通識課堂上要畫mind map,黃老師要求我們寫出在考察活動中,預期所見到及所學到的東西,例如是屏風樓的排列及居民的生活如何受屏風效應的影響等等,期間我們需要上網搜集有關屏風樓的最新資訊,再與同學分享。」考察活動前的工作令同學學習到搜集資料的技巧,更可讓他們明白與人分享的好處。

親身考察感空氣翳焗

考察活動行程相當緊湊,第一站到荃灣西,同學分為兩大組,輪流到萬景峯、楊屋道街市,以及荃灣碼頭一帶作實地考察,何嘉寶首先讓同學親身感受一下屏風效應對大眾的影響,大部分同學站在楊屋道街市附近已經大叫悶熱,空氣不流通令同學呼吸有點辛苦。其後,同學細分為四至五人一組,到鄰近的商鋪作問卷調查,訪問的過程並不容易,因為大部分人對屏風樓的認識不多,不懂回答,黃顥頤老師表示,「同學需要慢慢地向他們解釋,如說『那些一字排開的私人樓』、『好似一面牆的大廈遮擋着風,你有沒有覺得翳焗悶熱呀?』同學解釋過後,就可以問屏風樓對這些商戶的生意有沒有影響等較深入的問題。」

完成街訪後,同學便浩浩蕩蕩地前往荃灣碼頭一帶視察附近新建成的樓宇,如萬景峯、御凱及爵悅庭等,同學們發現這些屏風樓有多個共通點:樓高四十多層或以上,而且格局是氣勢磅礴的一字排開,還有的是通常這些屏風樓也是沿海而建,完全阻擋着海風,令內陸地區的通風不足。觀察後,同學分組就附近的新舊樓宇作比較,如建築特色、通風、地積比、公共空間等。

第二站是大角嘴,亦是受屏風效應影響嚴重的地區之一,何嘉寶表示,「由於近年政府在西九龍地區以高密度方式發展,特別是鐵路上蓋及鄰近的物業,這些新樓與鄰近的舊樓相比,高出三至四倍,令街道的通風廊被堵塞,大角嘴舊區一帶如海明閣等較矮的樓宇,被新樓『重重圍困』,光綫不足之餘,亦受氣溫持續上升所影響,居民大多叫苦連天。」

高密度樓宇影響環境

同學一致認為,屏風樓的影響令居民增加使用電燈及冷氣,令環境污染的問題日趨嚴重,政府必須正視這個影響民生的重要議題。最後同學需要想想這批舊區居民於重建前後所遇到的問題,有同學苦笑說,「新樓的建築地盤日以繼夜不停地施工,重型機器運作的噪音,以及泛起的塵土,令舊樓居民的居住環境不斷惡化。」

黃顥頤老師強調,「實地考察加強了同學對可持續發展如何影響環境與民生的認識,在課堂上紙上談兵往往不夠傳神,因此這類型的考察活動可令同學對某特定課題的印象更深刻。活動後,同學需要分組設計以今次考察為主題的明信片、撰寫個人日記及感想,以及在通識堂上作口頭報告,在鞏固知識的同時,亦希望他們能夠加強對社區的關注。」

發展局:南昌站增通風需考慮
7 January 2009
星島日報

深水埗區議會昨日開會就西鐵南昌站已批核的物業發展項目作出討論,發展局副秘書長(規劃及地政)麥駱雪玲、荃灣及西九龍規劃專員陳月媚,以及港鐵代表出席,其中有議員建議在南昌站上蓋發展再增加一個通風口,由新方案的兩個增至三個,務求令區內的通風情況進一步改善,發展局麥駱雪玲則表示,需視乎實際環境再考慮。

九幢樓宇改八幢

深水埗區議會昨日討論西鐵南昌站已批核的物業發展項目,就會上有議員提出由新方案中九幢樓宇改為八幢,由兩個通風口增為三個,麥駱雪玲聽取意見後指,須視乎實際環境再考慮,現階段未能作出回應,但她表示,現時兩條通風口分別為十八米及三十米,較建議的十五米通風口為闊,而整個規劃除了考慮通風問題外,亦需考慮觀景問題,當局樂意聽取任何意見,並指若有任何回應會以書面形式回作通知。

此外,她又指,除了南昌站上蓋項目外,現時亦與港鐵合作元朗站上蓋項目,將於下一次元朗區議會上討論。

另外,會上亦有區議員提出改建文娛中心,陳月媚表示,文娛中心須視乎需要,康文署及有關當局亦會作出商討,她還指,若區內有需要及政策上支持,將尋找合適的地方發展,而南昌站上蓋發展住宅較為合適,可利用鐵路交匯的優勢,一直為港鐵站上蓋發展的理念。

南昌站上蓋項目經進行區議會諮詢後,計畫於今年上半年提交予城規會審議,並預計於二○一○年施工,在二○一六年完工。

HK commie blocks.

I really hate these kinds of clone towers. A least vary the design a bit from one tower to the next.

I agree. These towers also tend to look cheap or chaotic.

Then I guess nobody would want to live in the monotonous American suburb then.

So where will the masses live?

南昌站減2廈 避屏風效應
11 March 2009
文匯報

【本報訊】屏風樓一向受社會關注,政府最新修訂的西鐵南昌站物業發展的布局,透過收窄樓宇間距,額外增加一條通風廊至3條,使富昌屯和南昌屯的通風效果,較2005年「一字排開」的布局,改善20%及10%,但個別樓宇的間距會縮窄至約2米。政府料最快可於一周內提交規劃申請,預期2010/11年施工,2016年落成。

發展局今年1月修訂南昌站物業發展的布局,將2005年獲城規會核准的「一字排開」設計,剔除1座住宅大廈和1座寫字樓的物業發展,以騰出28米和30米的通風廊,通風評估顯示,富昌屯和南昌屯的通風效果可較原先設計改善20%及10%。不過,深水步區議會提出動議,要求剔除多一幢樓宇,以設立3條通風通道。

建3通風廊 最闊達30米

根據發展局昨向區議會提交最新修訂方案,修訂樓宇地基位置,以增加多1條通風廊。政府建議把第3幢與第4幢之間、第5幢與第6幢的間距,從5至6米減至約2米,而3條通風廊闊度會分別改為30米、20米及22米。通風評估顯示,不論在設計上是2條或3條通風廊,通風效果相若,即較「一字排開」的設計大幅改善。

政府曾評估剔除多1幢樓宇的可能性,但因第9幢至第11幢已建造地基,因負載限制未能再在其樓層上增加單位,而第1幢至第7幢的樓宇高度已太高。發展局發言人表示,政府已平衡住屋需求、工程可行性和土地資源的多方因素,已較原先方案剔除2座樓宇,共減少66,493平方米的總樓面面積,已無空間再調低。

新規劃申請最快周內提交

此外,政府評估後亦發現,南昌站發展只會影響180米的範圍,但不會對距離約千米的深水步九江街、營盤街及東沙島街造成影響。發展局發言人表示,今年初提出在南昌站增設園景露天廣場、把平台由5層降至3層等建議,已在新修訂方案保留,若區議會沒有異議,最快可望一周內向城規會提交規劃申請。

深水步區議會主席陳東表示,歡迎政府回應區議會的修訂動議,額外增加1條通風廊。他稱,政府今年初已大幅減少南昌站的物業發展規模,新修訂方案更改善整體景觀,沒有了昔日的「一字排開」屏風式的建築。他希望其他議員能支持新修訂的方案,減少不必要的爭議,讓工程能盡快上馬,製造就業機會。

港鐵讓步 南昌站通風廊2變3
28 March 2009

【明報專訊】港鐵(0066)日前正式就西鐵南昌站上蓋減密度後的發展方案,向城規會提交申請,該項目最近進一步修改樓宇佈局,將通風廊由2條增至 3條,但樓宇座數和高度則不變;另外,該項目亦罕有地申請於屋苑私人平台,闢設一個面積約數千呎的狗公園,明顯是希望吸納愛狗人士,為近年罕見。

港鐵發言人指出,現時有規劃意向,希望可以在南昌站項目,加設一個狗公園,至於日後屋苑是否可以養狗,則要在日後草擬大廈公契時,與發展商再商討後才能定案。另外,港鐵亦指出,項目的通風廊由2條增至3條,已聽取區議會的意見。

擬推私人狗公園

據了解,港鐵於東涌發展的部分屋苑,也容許養狗,不過於屋苑內加設狗公園,是相當新穎的設計。

西鐵南昌站上蓋物業發展幾經波折,05年獲准興建11座高樓後,被指為屏風樓,發展局去年底讓步剔除2座樓宇,提供闊28及30米的通風廊,但深水埗區議會仍不滿,今年初更通過動議要求多剔除1幢樓,提供3條通風廊。

不過,發展局早前去信該區區議會,解釋多剔除1座樓宇,餘下樓宇的高度會相應增加,並不可取,亦有違臨海用地興建樓層較低樓宇的城市設計原則。

內街風速增10%至20%

該局與港鐵提出新方案,縮減第3及第4座之間、第5及第6座之間的間距,由約5、6米減至2米,提供3條分別闊30、20和22米的通風廊,並將平台高度由5層降至3層高。發展局形容新方案務實,在提供鐵路上蓋住宅與善用土地資源之間取得平衡。

南昌站項目,新設計整體總樓面較早年獲批方案減少18%,由397.8萬方呎減至326.3萬方呎;地積比率由8倍減至約6.6倍;住宅單位減少 926個(由4247個減至3321個),較已批核方案減少22%。另外,建築物高度減少約6.4米至14.8米。申請書指出,根據獨立顧問進行的空氣流通評估,引入通風廊和降低平台高度後,富昌邨及南昌邨的通風情况(以風速率計算)較已批核方案分別改善約20%及10%。城規會就該申請,收取意見直至4月17 日。

南昌站擬建18幢住宅
28/03/2009


政府早前落實削減西鐵南昌站上蓋物業發展的密度後,項目代理人港鐵剛向城規會提交項目最新規劃申請,建議以地積比率約6.6倍發展共18幢住宅,其中後排9 幢最高樓層為54層,另前排9幢維持樓高9層,並設有3條闊20至30米的通風廊,單位量較以往獲批方案減少近22%至3,321伙。

南昌站新發展方案地積比率由八倍減至約6.6倍,並減建兩幢高密度大廈,後排擬建9幢42至46層高住宅,另有8層地庫、平台及空中花園等樓層,最高樓層達54層,單位量3,096伙;而後排低密度住宅則共提供225伙。整個項目住宅總樓面約有296.5萬方呎,另有29.77萬方呎零售樓面。

柴灣車廠建住宅遭拒
另方面,城規會昨否決中巴柴灣車廠申請重建住宅的申請,因建議樓層高達59層,較已批方案高13.65米;另香港經貿商會會長李秀掹等的偉晉中心1期及2 期,獲准重建1幢37層高酒店。中西區關注組申請將中環卑利街及嘉咸街約50.8萬方呎土地改劃市集街等用途,被押後審議。

該會昨亦通過,全港逾百幅「綜合發展區」用地的規劃檢討,當中8幅具改劃用途潛力地皮,計有油塘工業區、土瓜灣木廠街6幢工廈連政府地、以及柴灣工廠大廈等,規劃署將於年內完成地皮的改劃土地用途建議。而現於勾地表的九龍塘延文禮士道住宅地規劃大綱,昨亦獲通過。

南昌站發展規模遭反對
25 April 2009
星島日報

港鐵早前向城規會申請南昌站上蓋縮減發展規模的方案,在公眾諮詢期間接獲三百三十六份意見,當中佔大多數居民均持反對態度,同時環團及地區人士均提出反對意見。此外,恒隆持有的薄扶林心光盲人院暨學校的住宅發展申請,暫接九份居民反對意見。

區議員︰須進一步減地積比

港鐵早前提出在南昌站興建九座共三千三百二十一個單位,而總樓面較原方案減少一成八、至三百二十六萬二千六百四十四方呎,地積比率亦由原來的八倍減至約六點六倍。此外,亦會增加三條二十至三十米寬的通風廊,以改善附近通風和景觀視野。有區議員指出,港鐵須進一步減低項目地積比率,並參照毗鄰富昌邨樓高度一百二十米,以進一步調低西鐵南昌站上蓋物業,使海旁至內陸的建築物以階梯式發展。

恒隆薄扶林接九份反對意見

此外,恒隆持有的薄扶林心光盲人院暨學校用地,早前向城規會申請由把「政府、機構或社區」地帶改劃為「住宅(丙類)」地帶以作住宅發展,申請於昨日屆滿接獲公眾意見日期,暫接到九份公眾意見,全數居民均對其改劃申請持反對意見。居民普遍認為地皮並不適合用作住宅發展,並認為改劃後將對該區帶來交通負荷,繼而產生空氣及嘈音污染,並對區內景觀帶來影響。

MTR project approved despite shortcomings
9 May 2009
South China Morning Post

The Town Planning Board approved the construction of a controversial residential project above Nam Cheong MTR Station yesterday, although the latest design does not improve air ventilation in Sham Shui Po, a condition of its approval.

But a board spokeswoman said the approval was conditional on the MTR Corporation further improving the design to widen gaps between the project and adjoining high-rises to enhance air flow. The board had also advised the corporation to further reduce the project's residential plot ratio by removing one tower from the design.

Criticised for creating a "wall effect" and consequent higher temperatures in Sham Shui Po, the Development Bureau in November scaled down the project - which originally included 11 high-rises and 9 low-rises on a narrow, elongated site above the station - by 18 per cent in terms of floor area and 22 per cent in terms of number of flats.

The bureau removed two high-rises from the design and kept two air ventilation corridors, 28 metres and 30 metres wide, claiming they would increase wind speeds in neighbouring Fu Cheong Estate by an estimated 20 per cent and those in Nam Cheong Estate by 10 per cent.

But the reduced project failed to impress residents and the district council, who demanded that three blocks be dropped and three air-ventilation corridors be created.

In its latest proposal, the MTR Corp - as the government's project agent - agreed to provide three air-ventilation corridors but the project scale was unchanged.

The three corridors, separating the project's high-rises into three groups, are 20 metres, 22 metres and 30 metres wide respectively. But a ventilation study commissioned by the MTR Corp found the latest design's overall wind performance (with three breezeways) similar to the one with two breezeways.

According to the study, the average site wind-velocity ratio remained at 2.23, while the ratio at Nam Cheong Estate remained at 0.11. An architectural industry source said the figures showed that the site's ventilation would be similar to Shinjuku in Tokyo, and air flow in Nam Cheong Estate would be similar to dense areas in Central.

"Adding a breezeway without trimming the density means tighter distribution of other buildings in the site," the source said. "The ventilation can't be improved if the density isn't reduced."

Board member Bernard Lim Wan-fung said it had advised MTR Corp to further reduce the residential density despite approving the revised project.

"It's difficult to reject an improved proposal when the board had already approved the dense development in 2004," he said.

There should be room to further reduce the number of residential blocks, Professor Lim said, adding that the government's proposed reduction of residential plot ratio - from 6.5 to 6 - was small.

"The MTRC, with social responsibility, should take away one more block," he said.

南昌站削密度 批建18幢
09/05/2009


為減建屏風樓,政府建議削減西鐵南昌站上蓋物業發展密度,昨獲城規會通過,項目將建18幢住宅,提供3,321伙,市場料項目發展權招標安排亦趨明朗化。另關注團體申請將中環卑利街及嘉咸街逾50萬方呎土地,改劃市集街等用途被拒,惟該會認同整區保育「舊城區」的概念,故要求規劃署重新檢討全港舊區規劃及邀請發展局檢討相關政策。

新地十四鄉建分層洋房
城規會發言人稱,南昌站上蓋建築物設計有改善空間,要求日後設計要增3條通風廊的闊度。

另項目前排9幢低密度住宅的規劃不變,後排則減建兩幢高密度住宅至9幢,最高樓層為54層,單位量減近22%。而新地的十四鄉住宅項目發展昨亦獲批建51幢分層住宅及32幢洋房。

西貢坑口永隆路33號申請將地積比率由0.3倍增至0.337倍,擬建1幢3層高獨立屋,據悉,該物業由爪哇或有關人士持有。長實的元朗錦田住宅發展增大洋房面積,但洋房量亦減至69座。另油塘崇信街4號獲政府批出補地價,市傳涉額逾2億元,較前減近兩成,惟發展商擬再上訴。

港鐵南昌元朗站住宅密度難再降
14 May 2009
信報

公眾對新發展的密度日益關注,政府近年對大型新發展項目密度多加注意,並先後大幅縮減多個勾地表和鐵路項目的規模,其中西鐵南昌站和元朗站項目,密度先後下降一成八和一成半。發展局強調,為免影響樓宇供應,將不會輕易進一步放棄住屋供應。

須平衡房屋供應發展局局長林鄭月娥出席立法會時表示,二○○七年決定覆檢兩個項目後,考慮市民意見後落實最新方案,由於需要維持房屋供應在合理水平,加上應善用珍貴的鐵路上蓋土地,故認為在大幅度降低密度後,目前已取得平衡。林鄭月娥強調,兩個項目的總單位數量在縮減規模後,已減少一千三百八十二伙,至五千多伙,有關單位數目佔本財政年度勾地表的單位總數約五成至六成,所以不能輕易放棄住屋供應,否則對長遠的私人樓宇住屋供應有重大影響。 事實上,南昌站項目上周五剛通過最新的發展方案,除降低密度外,亦把通風廊由兩道增至三道;她表示,城規會通過經修訂的密度時已考慮其背景,並要求港鐵(066)就項目的外形和布局上再作改善,政府將進一步與港鐵跟進。另一方面,林鄭月娥昨天出席香港建造商會「培育人才.建造未來」約章公告典禮致辭時表示,政府為協助承建商,去年年底起已採取措施協助紓緩承建商的資金狀況。她指出,截至四月底已有三百四十三份工程合約受惠有關措施,涉資十四億一千萬元,其中四億八千萬元已發放,餘下約九億三千萬元則在稍後逐步發放,並在下半年檢討措施成效。

59承建商簽約章聘畢業生 香港建造商會和香港機電工程商聯會旗下五十九家本港承建商簽訂約章,承諾今年招聘建築或機電工程等項目的畢業生時年薪連福利等將不低於十四萬四千元,預計三百名大學生受惠。 建造商會會長黃天祥指出,有關的薪酬水平較過往增加約二成至二成半,希望透過有關計劃,使受惠人數增至四百至五百人,並希望吸引專業人才加入。 該約章暫時已經獲得四十六家建造商會和十三家機電工程商聯會的會員公司參與。 金門建築人力資源董事黎永覺表示,集團依照需要預計今年將聘請約三十個畢業生,其中以土木工程和建築工程相關的職位為主,薪金可望高於約章所訂立的水平,另將聘請二十多個專業教育學院的畢業生■
