Opinion : Prime site's 'green' potential
25 August 2009
SCMP

Hong Kong is a dense urban space that leaves little room to build except to "go up".

The proposed towers of Wharf Holdings and New World cannot be condemned before they are built, for these buildings are integral to the continued growth of Hong Kong as a viable commercial centre. However, what can be questioned, and The Masterpiece is an example of this, is the dull, unimaginative and non-green intrusive architecture that takes away more than it gives in return.

Wharf Holdings' prime site at Harbour City affords it the opportunity to build something that reflects Hong Kong's commitment to its commercial future as well its environment. Skyscrapers can be part of the solution to environmental problems, rather than the source.

Wharf Holdings has an opportunity to place an emphasis on design approaches, including natural ventilation, daylight and vertical landscaping to reduce energy use, and define the future of environmentally sound buildings for Hong Kong.

JPMorgan remains positive on NWD despite lost rents at center
The Standard
Wednesday, October 14, 2009

New World Development (0017) may lose rental income of about HK$300 million a year because of the redevelopment of New World Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, JPMorgan estimated after meeting the management.

The segment result of NWD's property development - including New World Centre - fell 24.8 percent to HK$1.6 billion for the year to June 30.

The developer is clearing tenants in the center - including the shopping mall, offices, service apartments and Renaissance Kowloon Hotel - before redeveloping the site into a three-million square foot mixed-used commercial project, analyst Billy Ng wrote in a report.

JPMorgan has kept its "overweight" rating on NWD despite a more negative outlook on its Chinese property unit New World China Land (0917), which announced a rights issue last Friday.

It stayed positive on NWD due to its strong profit outlook for the 2010-11 financial year, sizable recurring income and positive view of the home market.

The occupancy rate of K11 - the Tsim Sha Tsui shopping mall to open in December - has hit 80 percent with space leased at HK$100 per square foot. NWD, meanwhile, expects mainland homebuyers to account for up to 20 percent of sales in its project The Masterpiece.

It intends to sell the remaining 114 flats in the upmarket Tsim Sha Tsui project by June 2010, Ng said. NWD rose 0.48 percent to HK$16.70 yesterday.
