Full house likely for Hysan Place
The Standard
Wednesday, July 11, 2012

More than 98 percent of Hysan Place in Causeway Bay has been leased out at an average price of HK$150 per square foot and Hysan Development Company (0014) expects the entire mall space of the office- cum-retail complex to be fully rented before doors open on August 10.

Tenants, including GAP and Jasons Food & Living, have signed contracts with a three- year tenure on average.

Hysan chief executive Lau Siu-chuen said about 40 percent of office space has been leased out.

"We expect a customer flow of 100,000 per day," said Cissy Chan Ching-sze, director of retail portfolio and marketing at Hysan Place.

Lau believes although the mainland economy is showing signs of declining, it will grow in the long term. "So Hysan is not worried about mainland customers' spending less at its malls," he said.

Chairman Irene Lee Yun-lien said they expect steady growth in revenue this year.

Hysan Place will consist of more than 120 shops.

Luxury travel retailer DFS Group has rented the largest retail area of 45,000 sq ft to open its third Galleria store in Hong Kong. It will be named T Galleria.

Speculation has been rife that US-based Apple Inc will open its second Hong Kong store at Hysan Place, paying a monthly rent of HK$5 million. Taiwan bookstore chain Eslite is expected to open an outlet.

The 36-story Hysan Place will consist of 15 levels of office space occupying a gross floor area of 240,000 sq ft and another 17 levels of retail space taking up 450,000 sq ft.

Hysan shares rose 0.8 percent to HK$31.50 yesterday.

I believe the one to the left of 2IFC with empty lights is Hysan Place.

New chapter as 24-hour bookstore nears launch
The Standard
Friday, August 03, 2012

The first overseas branch of the renowned Eslite Bookstore will open in Causeway Bay next week, providing a new experience for book lovers in Hong Kong.

Eslite, one of the biggest book retailers in Taiwan, gained popularity by designing its shops as art and mall complexes that provide round-the-clock services.

The store will open next Saturday, with day-and-night services from Thursday to Saturday until mid next month. After that it will decide if there is a market for a 24-hour bookshop in Hong Kong.

Readers can expect to find coffee shops, boutiques, art galleries and exhibition areas inside the 41,000-square-foot, three-story store in Hysan Place. It will carry more than 230,000 books.

Eslite is planning to organize two exhibitions, four themed bookfairs and 33 cultural activities.

Renowned writers, including Ma Ka-fai, have agreed to hold activities with readers in the coming days.

Local book retailers are also getting busy.

Chung Hwa Book Co Hong Kong is cooperating with Animate - the largest retailer of Japanese games, manga and anime - to launch its first two-story manga shop in Prince Edward.

Deputy manager Ivy Wu Wing-man said Eslite is not a threat since their target customers are different.

"Eslite did a good job in nurturing the reading atmosphere in Taiwan," Wu said. "I hope they can do the same here."

Commercial Press - one of the biggest bookstores - expanded its branch in Causeway Bay to battle Eslite.

Hysan Place bullish on offices
The Standard
Tuesday, August 07, 2012

The developers of Hysan Place believe the mixed-use project will see rapid take-up of the remaining 60 percent of office space.

The 36-story office-cum-retail complex in Causeway Bay opens on Friday.

All 270,000 square feet of retail space at the Hysan Development Co (0014) tower - located just opposite Sogo on Hennessy Road - have been rented out at a monthly rate of more than HK$150 per square foot. But just 40 percent of offices have managed to secure tenants.

Hysan deputy chairman and chief executive Lau Siu Chuen said: "We receive inquires from different potential office tenants for Hysan Place every day, but it is hard to conclude rent negotiations within a short time."

The tower's total gross floor area of 710,000 sq ft includes 17 levels of retail outlets and 15 stories of office space, with a four-story car park.

The mainland state-owned Wuliangye Group has rented a 16,000 sq ft office for HK$75 psf - a record for Causeway Bay.

More than 100 brand names have already signed on for retail space, including Taiwan bookstore chain Eslite, Apple and the Jasons Food and Living supermarket. And audit house KPMG will take up an 80,000-sq ft office space.

About competition with Sogo, Lau said he sees no rivalry and the two will be able to coexist.

Hysan Development posted a 12.8 percent year on year increase in first-half underlying profit to HK$748 million. Earnings per share hit 70.57 HK cents and an interim dividend of 17 HK cents was declared.

Net profit, including fair-value changes on investment properties, fell 3.2 percent to HK$5.8 billion in the January-June period.

Revenue, however, gained 18.1 percent to HK$1.1 billion, including HK$87 million in rent already contributed by Hysan Place.

Lau expects office rents, which rose nearly 20 percent in the first-half, to stay stable on limited supply and a rebound in the local economy.

"As long as economic growth reaches 3 percent or above, office rent will go up," he said, citing market estimates of the SAR's gross domestic product rising at least 4 percent in 2013.

Shares gained 3.7 percent to HK$34.80 after interim results were announced yesterday.

Bookshop is exciting chapter for cultural life
The Standard
Monday, August 20, 2012

Hysan Place opened its doors 10 days ago , and with it Eslite, the Taiwan bookstore chain - renowned for its extensive collection of volumes, as well as other creative platforms such as talks, exhibitions, designer products, salons and cafes.

This is, of course, a welcome addition to a literary-rich city, which boasts a popular annual book fair, literary festival and a prestigious prize.

The three-story Eslite shop, covering 41,000 square feet - the largest bookstore in town - is open seven days a week, including around the clock on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

What is particularly outstanding and significant is that Eslite can be identified more as a concept store and patron of culture. Its 48 branches internationally host more than 3,000 activities a year, with lectures, readings, concerts and art exhibitions open to the public - providing a platform for cultural learning, appreciation and growth.

Marking the launch of Eslite Hong Kong are two exhibitions and 30 activities over the next month. Like its Taiwan counterparts, the creatively stocked stationery section, tempting tea salon, diverse music and video boutique, and art gallery currently showing the works of Chinese-American artist Xu Bing, will be sure to keep us occupied.

Of course, Eslite has its critics - primarily noting that the entry of a big chain simply monopolizes the market, forcing smaller bookshops to close.

But we should perhaps be grateful for the availability of such a strategically thought through cultural platform, that offers all of us access to knowledge, discovery and learning.

Positively, it provides healthy market competition and attracts new audiences to books and reading, and can instead boost the need for more bookstores, either local or international.

Architectural critic Nicholas Ho and art historian Stephanie Poon don't always see eye to eye.

Interesting how the bookstore industry is still alive and well in Asia unlike in North America where most Borders or Barnes N Noble have closed down.

The mega bookstore concept is still in its infancy in Hong Kong, and online bookstores are still not very well developed. So the market here is far different from the US.
