$1.28b deal for Lee trust land
10 June 2008
Hong Kong Standard
English
Copyright 2008 The Standard Newspapers Publishing Limited. All Rights Reserved.

Henderson Land (0012), controlled by tycoon Lee Shau-kee, said yesterday it will pay HK$1.28 billion to buy land in both Sha Tin and Mid- Levels for residential development.

The developer said it will buy a 100 percent interest in Sha Tin Town Lot No 539 and a 60 percent interest in No 3 Conduit Road, both of which are owned by Lee's family trust.

``The Sha Tin development is a proposed residential development with an estiamted gross floor area of approximately 358,048 square feet,'' the developer said. It will comprise six blocks of residential buildings, two high-rise and four low-rise, with parking and other facilities.

In the deal, companies controlled by Lee's trust guarantee the gross sale price of the Sha Tin development at no less than HK$3.27 billion.

A statement Henderson filed with the stock exchange said: ``[If] the gross sale price ... falls short of the aforementioned guaranteed amount, Furnline and Perfect Bright [companies owned by Lee's trust] shall jointly and severally be liable to pay to Kamston [a company owned by Henderson] the amount equal to such shortfall.''

The Conduit Road development has a gross floor area of about 229,225 sq ft, comprising a 46-story residential building which includes a one-story clubhouse and a six-story podium carpark. Both projects are expected to be completed in 2009.

...and notice the moon

This tower is a dark horse to me for a while. At least there's some info about it now - thanks for opening a thread.
But why did 39 Conduit Road rise up quickly in 2007 and hasn't been finished on the outside since then? Has it been on hold for a while?
These two pics are actually on the developers' website - no idea, if they're recent:

It's strange that E Man Construction only name 40 storeys; the 46 floors from the Hongkong Standard seem way more likely (Emporis indicates 45 floors).
I'd even give it some more - watch the impact on the following great pano shot from December 9, 2008, posted by Skybean in the ICC thread.
Although located on a slope, it's hard to believe that this shouldn't be a +50-floors residential tower.
In the background, 39 Conduit Road rises darkly over the surrounding towers between the Peak and the Centre:

The top looks at almost 300m above sea level, and the only question is the ground level above sea - maybe 100m, or a bit higher?
Then this tower might have 150m-200m. In any case, this could be the tallest u/c-building on the Hk island right now.

Good point - I pointed out in the ICC construction thread that it's making an impact on the skyline - didn't realise it's because it looks to be about 300m above sea-level!

For it to be 200m in height though, it'd have to be at least 60+ stories, which I very much doubt it is.

The construction site says it's 40 floors INCLUDING podium, which is very odd.

Seeing as it's a luxury development, perhaps the ceiling is a bit higher than normal apartment blocks, but still not enough to alter its height considerably?

On another note, there is another tall(ish) development that has received no coverage. It's out in Wan Chai on Hennessey Road (not too far from 298). It's a single luxury residential (or service apartment) block, but the name escapes me. It's about 40 stories in height too.

In fact renderings of this project are available in this website:

Originally (about 3 or 4 months ago) in the "Project Description" it mentioned that the tower is 181 metres tall. It disappeared afterwards, whether suggesting a change in design or something relating to disclosure of information I could not tell.

-

In fact there are a lot of proposed projects in the same website, with the most curious one the debatable Swire Seymour Road project which would be 210.93 metres tall in that design. I have compiled some of them in a thread in the Chinese forum of skyscrapers.cn.

Thanks. I recently created a thread for Swire's Seymour Road project here as well :

Thanks for the renderings. It's a little bit better than a typical flat. There's more glass on this development.

The back looks like a public housing project though!

Yeah it does. Looks like they cheaped out on the side that not as many people would see. The front side is glassy while the back is just a huge wall. The base is alright.

It does look HUGE doesn't it?

The podium + carpark itself look good for about 10 floors.

I am just guessing...
The podium probably includes a club house and multi-level carpark.
This mid-level, whoever lives there are rich and are going to have a car for sure these days. The parking space needed for now per unit is probably much higher than those buildings built back then in the surrounding.

well I live 2 buildings away from this one, I've seen the site since it was an old apartment building called "Rocky Mountain", the site is actually a huge slope as I recall so maybe on the frontal side alot of it is just wall building up to the podium and the buidling is being measured from the very bottom which could explain why it seems like it should be a taller building.

I'm really excited to see it being fnished as I've been lookin forward to it since the first day of construction and I see it growing everytime I come back to Hong kong and now the scaffolding are being taken down and I can't wait to see the showflats
