Ex-official 'played no role in TST project'
5 November 2009
South China Morning Post

New World Development last night denied former senior lands official Leung Chin-man played any role in its plan to redevelop the New World Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Official records showed the group paid land premiums of HK$513 million in 1998 and HK$925 million last year to turn the existing low-rise office block into a 63-storey skyscraper. The total gross floor area will increase from 2.2 million to 3.2 million sq ft.

A company spokesman said yesterday Leung played no role in the project, and all its projects had been legal.

The company also said the plan to erect the 260-metre-high block was approved by the Town Planning Board in 2005, while height limits for development in Tsim Sha Tsui were only imposed last year. Leung worked as permanent secretary for planning, housing and lands between 2002 and 2005.

The comments came as members of the 12-member select committee investigating Leung's post-service employment at New World China Land said they wanted to seek more information about the project.

Lee Wing-tat, deputy chairman of the committee, said more facts were needed as it was hard to comment on Leung's role. He said the select committee could ask questions at the hearings regarding Leung's contacts with the developer on different projects if they found the information was relevant to the inquiry.

It was the latest development in a saga dating to 2004 when former subsidised housing estate Hung Hom Peninsula was sold by the government to a subsidiary of New World Development, parent of New World China Land, at what was seen as a bargain price. In August last year, a public furore was triggered over the controversial appointment of Leung to a senior position with New World China Land.

新世界中心重建避過高限規管
5 November 2009
明報

變身70層 改地契毋須公開

【明報專訊】尖沙嘴新世界中心正準備全面重建70層的摩天大廈,並成功避過高限規管。本報追查其獲批准重建過程,發現要追溯至 1996年(見表);由於地契修改毋須公開,公眾無從得知尖東海旁正醞釀興建摩廈。有城規會委員指出,舊圖則難作追溯,只能靠政府盡早制訂及實施各區的高度限制,在分區計劃大綱圖設高限。

新世界:按正常程序申請

最新一期《壹週刊》指出,新世界中心重建涉及320萬方呎,以14.38億元補地價計算,每呎補地價僅449元。新世界發言人昨回應,補地價一向是以較原地契上限多出的樓面計算,補價只涉及98萬方呎多出樓面。她表示,項目於早年獲批,強調按正常程序申請。

早於03年,新世界中心已獲地政總署批准重建一幢約70層高的大廈,因地契修改(主要依據分區計劃大綱圖的許可)暫時無公眾諮詢制度,去年4月,城規會公布該地皮的高限最高達265米時,令市場頗為哄動。

資料顯示,現新世界中心建築群地積比為5.89倍,於98年新世界補價5.13億元,增加98萬方呎(主要為酒店)樓面,可建樓面增至348.8萬方呎,地積比增至8.21倍,其後新世界與規劃署在不增加樓面下磋商樓宇佈局,至去年補足地價。

對於早年已批出建築圖則項目,城規會委員吳祖南指出,難於透過政府提供誘因去鼓勵發展商減低密度,只能靠政府盡早制訂及實施各區的高度限制。而在分區計劃大綱圖設置高限之時,吳祖南認為可先根據各個已批項目的程序,「如未批建築圖則,或圖則需進一步修改,政府可從中要求盡量減低項目的密度,以符合將來的高度限制」。

李永達:先了解是否與梁展文有關

對於《壹週刊》指梁展文在新世界中心重建補價中有問題,立法會調查有關梁展文離職後工作的事宜專責委員會副主席、民主黨李永達表示,會着立法會秘書處先了解,包括當時梁展文在政府的職位、批准新世界中心重建的程序,以決定是否有表面證據可以由專責委員會作出調查。

新世界中心預百億重建
10 December 2009

【東方日報專訊】新世界發展(00017)董事總經理鄭家純表示,估計本港明年整體樓價有一成升幅,而集團明年計劃斥資60億至70億元補地價,尖沙咀新世界中心重建的費用則預計超過100億元。此外,新世界有意競投本月底拍賣的白石角地皮。

明年樓價料再升10%

鄭家純昨日於股東會後表示,受制供求關係,本港地價及樓價的下跌空間有限,估計明年本港整體樓價有10%升幅。

至於未來息口走勢,鄭家純表示隨著經濟復甦,息口會慢慢向上,但由於銀行目前仍然「水浸」,將積極爭取樓按生意,相信按揭息率仍會「跟大圍」。新世界主席鄭彤裕則預期,明年上半年息口將維持不變。

鄭家純續稱,估計集團明年將會動用60億至70億元補地價,涉及樓面超過200萬平方呎,主要是位於西貢的農地。不過他強調,最終補地價金額仍要視乎政府審批的進度,希望政府可加快審批。

另外,尖沙咀新世界中心重建的具體發展細節仍未決定,但初步估算重建費用將超過100億元,整個工程預料需時5至6年。至於即將開幕的「K11」商場部分出租率已達80%。

政府本月底將拍賣白石角地皮,鄭家純表示,該地皮位置好,集團有意競投該幅地皮,惟尚未決定是否獨資競投,現未有其他發展商與新世界接洽。

對白石角地皮被估每方呎樓面地價或高達7,000元是否合理,鄭家純無正面評論,只表示「貴買貴賣」。集團未來會透過私人協商及與市建局合作等途徑增加土儲。

新中加快內地發展

身兼新世界中國(00917)主席的鄭家純表示,中央城市化政策利好二三線城市的樓市,會加快在內地的發展,惟暫無意夥拍內地發展商買地。他認為,內地樓市未見泡沫。

So that means that they were actually demolishing the old building. So the next phase is Prep. I'm going to move it until it's U/C.

There is one suspected rendering in the last page, but no need to take it seriously. As we know HK developers are not loyal to early renderings at all.

Ya this kind of architecture is rarely seen in HK, to be frank, I quite get tired of all those boxy office buildings.

Stricter rules proposed for tall office blocks in Tsim Sha Tsui
4 June 2010
South China Morning Post



Developers planning tall commercial buildings in Tsim Sha Tsui will have to comply in future with a more stringent set of design conditions.

Government proposals to be discussed by the Town Planning Board today aim to define Tsim Sha Tsui as a central business district and a high-rise node while improving the streetscape and pedestrian environment.

The proposals set out rules for developers wanting to exceed current height restrictions, including limiting the building to 65 per cent of the site area and providing green space equivalent to 20 per cent of the area.

Building heights in Tsim Sha Tsui are limited to between 60 and 130 metres above sea level, depending on the location, but the limit can be exceeded on application to the board.

The new proposals apply only to sites of at least 1,800 square metres, big enough to enable the design rules to be met while still providing offices of a reasonable size.

A Planning Department study shows that a site area of 1,800 square metres will result in a building with a floor size of about 1,000 square meters, akin to the floor size for modern Grade A office buildings.

Three sites are specifically excluded - New World Centre, Ocean Centre and The Masterpiece; these buildings are respectively 265 metres, 387 metres and 250 metres high.

The lawmaker for architects, former Town Planning Board member Patrick Lau Sau-shing, said tall buildings should be encouraged in urban areas: "Given the same amount of floor area allowed, short buildings will be too flat and massive and block the wind flow."

But he warned that design rules that were too rigid could discourage creative and unique designs.

The proposed rules call on developers to provide a better pedestrian environment by, for example, putting car parks underground to minimise a building's bulk and improve air flow at ground level.

Apart from orienting the building in a direction that will not block prevailing wind, the developer must provide uncovered greenery of at least 20 per cent of the gross site area at street level on the lowest three floors, so as to offer visual relief and improve the micro-climate for pedestrians.

Floors close to the ground should be set back at least three metres from the site boundary facing open space, waterfront or principal streets to leave space for planting small to medium-sized trees.

If the width of a building's facade facing principal streets or public open space exceeds 100 metres, gaps of not less than half of the building's total width should be reserved to let the air through and provide a view.

Applications for a taller commercial building must be supported with technical assessments of the building's impact on the surrounding environment.

The department also proposes relaxing the height restriction for sites southeast and northwest of Mody Road to 80 metres and 95 metres from 60 metres, to allow a stepped height profile.
