Well I'm definitely not against putting a limit to protect the mountain ridge, but look that the group of buildings right in front of that mine/cliff. All the gov't housing are the same height and it looks so fugly. Maybe it's Lam Tin over there?

I prefer the look of Kwun Tong, with all the singular buildings with varying heights the skyline looks much more vibrant.

That's Lam Tin/Sau Mau Ping.

Yea, variation is needed, and this doesn't extend just to Goverment public housing - look at Kowloon Bay. Some really good buildings down there, but it looks odd cos they're all almost exactly the same height.

Density of Yau Tong Bay development may be halved
7 March 2008
South China Morning Post

Development density at Yau Tong Bay would be halved under a new set of planning controls, including a 120 metre height limit, proposed by the Planning Department.

The new restrictions, submitted in a paper to the Town Planning Board, would force the Henderson Land consortium, which owns more than 80 per cent of the area, to reduce its proposed development scale by a further 10 per cent. The planning board will discuss the new restrictions today.

The planning board first approved the plan, but reconsidered after the Court of Final Appeal ruled out the possibility of reclaiming Victoria Harbour in 2004.

The consortium then submitted three new options to the planning board last year after the site area was shrunk to 9 hectares without reclamation. The number of towers was reduced to between 12 and 14, each with 26 to 48 storeys.

The gross floor area was also trimmed by about 45 per cent to 498,996 square metres, housing about 5,800 flats.

But the plan was criticised as still too massive by board members, who later asked the Planning Department to impose clear restrictions.

Under the proposal being discussed today, the consortium would have to cut the maximum gross floor area by a further 10 per cent to 447,381 square metres - less than half of the 2002 proposal - with only 5,456 flats. The consortium would be allowed to build up to 18 towers of nine to 31 storeys, but they should appear stepped in height and not be higher than 120 metres.

A 30-metre-wide non-building area should also be kept between towers to facilitate ventilation.

"We prefer fewer but higher towers," said a consultant commissioned by the consortium, arguing that fewer buildings would minimise the visual impact upon Yau Mei Court and allow more open space for the public.

The consultant was concerned, however, that the usable area of the residential buildings would be further reduced if the 30-metre visual corridor between buildings were requested.

The department said the redevelopment should bring benefits to the local community by phasing out industrial operations, resolving environmental problems such as the stench from the bay, and enhancing the waterfront for public enjoyment.

The consortium would also be required to reserve waterfront areas for a 20-metre-wide promenade.

Pilot green project for estate
21 February 2007
The Standard

A new public housing estate in Yau Tong will have green roofs and vertical panels as part of the Housing Department's measures to test greening at its urban housing projects.

The greening system for the Eastern Harbour Crossing Phase 4 in Yau Tong will comprise prefabricated green panels that can be mounted on vertical surfaces or installed on the roofs on buildings.

Deputy Director of Housing Ada Fung Yin-suen said Tuesday the department has always attached importance to environmental protection, noting that greenery has been planted on the rooftops of some of its shopping arcades, carparks and small structures.

The panels earmarked for EHC Phase 4 enable easy on- site installation and maintenance, Fung said.

To test the most optimal soil and plant species mix for the panels, trial panels will be installed on site during the construction stage and relocated to their permanent locations upon completion of the project.

EHC Phase 4, scheduled to be completed in mid-2009, comprises three 41-story blocks with 2,369 flats. A total of 2,650 square meters of green space will be provided.

All roofs at EHC Phase 4, including lift towers and ground floor canopies, will be greened. Horizontal trellises will be provided on both sides of the footbridge and double deck walkways to allow climbing plants to grow.

Greenery on roofs offer a range of benefits such as helping to reduce the heat island effect, improving insulation, energy efficiency and the buildings' appearance.

Hoarding panels at the EHC Phase 4 construction site, which will serve as dust and noise screening devices, can be dismantled and moved to other construction sites if necessary.

``To improve the visual effects of man-made slopes and high retaining walls, all phases of EHC will carry out greening works on slopes and wall surfaces as far as possible to improve the overall environmental quality to increase green coverage and reduce the heat island effect of the [residential] blocks,'' Fung said.

Different design measures will be adopted to cope with specific site conditions and constraints.

Henderson Land sees sharp sales slump Developer says transactions to bring in less than HK$10b but tips rebound next year
9 December 2008
South China Morning Post

Henderson Land Development says the company's property sales this financial year will see a sharp decline from last year's HK$24 billion, reflecting the U-turn in the sector in the past few months.

Chairman Lee Shau-kee said, however, that the worst of the property slump was over and he anticipated the property industry would see a recovery in the second half of next year.

Speaking after the company's annual general meeting yesterday, vice-chairman Colin Lam Ko-yin said the company might receive less than HK$10 billion from property sales for this financial year to June.

The company did not have many projects on offer this year as the market slowed, Mr Lam said.

Home prices have dropped 20 to 30 per cent in various districts since September, according to estate agents.

Some analysts have predicted capital values might fall a further 30 per cent.

"The fall could extend to 2010, subject to economic developments in the city," said Marcos Chan Kam-ping, the head of international property consultant Jones Lang LaSalle's research department.

However, Mr Lee was more optimistic.

"Following a sharp decline in home prices, we will see a consolidation in the first half of next year, with limited ups and downs" he said.

"If the global economic outlook improves in the second half, the [property] market hopefully will recover."

Mr Lee said the downturn in the property market had not put pressure on the company as it had not bought sites at high prices when the market boomed last year.

The slow market conditions, on the other hand, had provided the company a good opportunity to replenish its land bank at low prices, he said.

"The property market overall has moved downward this year," Mr Lam said.

"Premiums to be paid to the government for any conversion of agricultural sites should be lower now than those in the past year or so."

Sites in Hong Kong that Henderson plans to convert from farm land include the Wu Kai Sha site in Sha Tin, as well as old shipyard areas at Yau Tong Bay in eastern Kowloon.

Commenting on the stock market's performance, Mr Lee said it was difficult to predict when the Hang Seng Index would reach its bottom.

Despite a surge of 1,198.78 points in the index yesterday, Mr Lee said he would not recommend investors enter the market now.

Meanwhile, Henderson Investment - 67.9 per cent owned by Henderson Land - is still in talks about selling a stake of 60 per cent in Hangzhou Henderson Qianjiang Third Bridge and 70 per cent in Maanshan Huan Tong Highway Development to its joint-venture partners.

Mr Lam refused to comment on whether Henderson Land would privatise Henderson Investment when the two core projects were sold.

東九新戰線 油塘嘉賢居下月推
17 July 2009
香港經濟日報



將軍澳日出康城2期領都開售消息下,其他發展商亦嚴陣以待,部署趁勢推出餘貨及新盤,令東九龍及東南九龍陷入新盤混戰局面。

除新地(00016)及新世界(00017)旗下紅磡海濱南岸部署短期推出第3座單位外,恆地(00012)營業部總經理林達民昨於記者會上表示,旗下油塘草園街8號嘉賢居亦最快於8月推出,分層單位目標呎價8,500元。

恆地旗下油塘嘉賢居,於將軍澳新都城中心2期商場進行首場路演,林達民表示,項目共涉185伙,提供面積介乎696至2,526平方呎的2房至4房單位,並以中產買家為主要客源,預計分層目標呎價約8,500元,特色單位則介乎1.4萬至1.5萬元。

林氏補充,待完成3場路演後,集團就會委託地產代理進行推廣及開放現樓予代理參觀。而項目位於旺角百匯軒的示範單位,則會於8月開放予買家參觀。

海濱南岸晤代理 部署收票

另一邊廂,新地昨日亦約見區內代理,商討紅磡海濱南岸第3座推售事宜。

市場人士表示,雖發展商指開售時間需視乎地產代理的收票數量,但相信項目有望本月內推出,預計目標呎價約7,000元。目前,倘不計算第3座350個單位,海濱南岸僅有兩伙餘貨。當中1座低層K室,面積630平方呎,售價380萬元,平均呎價6,032元。

其實,除上述項目外,華懋旗下九龍城豪門一期及新地旗下新浦崗譽.港灣,目前分別有約100伙及少於150伙餘貨。前者則繼續開放高層特色單位的示範單位吸客,而後者亦推售一房單位來盡吸市場游資。可見,東南九龍在多個新盤的夾擊下,相信一場龍爭虎鬥即將出現。

嘉賢居 近看維港 遠眺大嶼山 油塘最「潮」新派住宅
(明報)2009年8月8日 星期六 05:05

【明報專訊】近年銳意打造「第二代分層豪宅」的恒基地產,繼早前推出大角嘴 「亮賢居」、上水 「御景峰」後,最新登場的「嘉賢居」,是油塘區內繼06年初開售「鯉灣天下 」之後,過去3年來唯一的全新私人發展樓盤。作為恒地系「第二代豪宅」的第三炮,嘉賢居秉承高格調路線,無論是物業外形、單位內部配套,整體設計均強調「時尚」品味,成為區內最「潮」的新派住宅。

嘉賢居除單位用料、廚廁配套與同系港島東代表作「嘉亨灣 」屬相同級數外,住宅部分建於20多米高的基座上,中低層單位已擁有開揚的維港、港九市區景致,高層單位在天朗氣清時,視線更加遠及昂船洲大橋、大嶼山 ,氣勢懾人。

位處油塘草原街的嘉賢居屬單幢項目,單位總數185伙,標準樓層分佈於6至37樓(5樓單位附連私家平台花園,歸入特色戶型),每層設6伙,基本上可細分為3組:A、B室屬1000餘方呎3房單位(另連工人房),是嘉賢居最大一款標準戶型;C、D室同屬730餘方呎兩房單位;E、F室分別屬940及 737方呎的3、2房單位。單位平均實用率約78%,雖未及八成,但整體官感算方正,無論廚房、大廳或房間均顯得四平八穩,不見有「三尖八角」的情况。

可自製相連單位

最特別之處,是每組單位互相緊連,家庭成員較多的買家若有足夠財力,又有實際需要的話,除可一口氣連購兩個單位外,更可將兩個單位打通(因中間並非主力牆),自行打造相連大戶。舉例說,A、B單位打通後就變為一套面積達2042方呎、擁有6間房(雙套房、另加兩間士多房)的大宅。就算是原作為細單位的C、D室,打通後亦將變成一套1460餘方呎、擁有4間房的大單位,愜意非常。

嘉賢居除物業外形與嘉亨灣、御景峰一脈相承外,單位內部配套,亦秉承恒地系「第二代豪宅」所有元素,最明顯例子是廚房、浴室提供的標準設施,均選用中上價、在市場上具相當知名度的歐洲品牌(見表),以及裝置過往只見諸於豪宅的廚房(或浴室)專用的微型液晶體電視。

標準單位樓高10呎4吋

另一值得注意的,是作為最大一款標準戶型的B室(1042方呎),主人套房的浴室裝設有近乎落地的圓拱形觀景玻璃窗,配合橢圓型浴缸,令人再次想起嘉亨灣的「Top of The Town」大宅。此外,各標準單位的樓底高度皆達10呎4吋高,也為室內增添不少空間感。

至於恒地系樓盤近年的「指定動作」,是將物業最高數層打造成「行政樓層」(單位配套質素經過提升),嘉賢居38、39樓就設有5個1300餘至 2500餘方呎的相連、複式大宅,樓底高度加碼至約13呎,是油塘區內迄今最巨型的住宅單位。如當中的2526方呎複式大宅,附設平台花園(176方呎)和天台花園(666方呎),將「屋仔」意念融入分層物業內。

Spectacle focus on mainlanders
5 August 2009
The Standard

Henderson Land Development (0012) is to hold an exhibition in Changsha, partly aimed at mainlanders interested in buying flats at The Spectacle, the Yau Tong project it has developed with Hong Kong Ferry (0050).

A price list for the single-building development is expected to be available next week.

According to Thomas Lam Tat-man, sales general manager at Henderson, the smallest flat may cost around HK$4 million, or around HK$6,000 per square foot.

The 32-story Spectacle has 185 flats, ranging from 696 to 2,526 sq ft. Apartments on the lower floors will be included in the first batch to be sold. Henderson said it spent HK$80 million on a clubhouse.

Lam also said prices at Henderson's luxury Grand Promenade in Sai Wan Ho recently hit a season high of HK$17,500 psf.

``The Spectacle cannot be compared to Grand Promenade, which is in an urban area,'' said Terry Ng Miu-chong, associate district manager at Midland Holdings. ``But given its proximity to the MTR station it is highly practical.''

Ng said the only comparable project is the nearby Canaryside, whose flats cost around HK$5,000 psf in the secondary market.

Because of a shortage of flats of more than 900 sq ft in nearby Lam Tin, Ng expects The Spectacle to attract a number of homeowners, some of whom may join two flats.

Henderson is holding an exhibition in Changsha, Hunan, on August 14 and 15 to promote the company. It is likely to conduct a viewing tour for prospective buyers of its new projects early next month, but may also make special arrangements for those interested in The Spectacle.

The company will open two showrooms on Saturday.

Because it's also important to protect the unique mountain ridge line that we have besides economic development.

New World plans master stroke over TST project
24 August 2009
The Standard

New World Development (0017) plans to launch its Tsim Sha Tsui luxury residential project The Masterpiece this week at prices close to prevailing levels in the vicinity.

The company will initially market 20 percent of the total 345 units, said Jeff Lau Chung-leung, a senior manager in sales and marketing. He said the first price list will be released this week, and units available for purchase 24 hours after that.

New World aims to sell flats with sea views at prices of more than HK$20,000 per square foot, while regular units will start at HK$14,000 psf, Lau said. Premium units are expected to exceed HK$35,000 psf.

He said show flats of The Masterpiece, a joint development with the Urban Renewal Authority, located on Hanoi Road, attracted more than 300 groups of prospective buyers yesterday.

Commenting on media reports that said sales began last week, Lau said New World only started taking registrations of interest from VIPs and friends.

Earlier, Hang Lung Properties (0101) sold more than 400 flats in one week at luxury residence The Harbourside, atop Kowloon Station, at an average selling price of HK$15,000 psf.

Henderson Land Development (0012) added six units at Yau Tong project, The Spectacle, to the market yesterday at HK$5,423 psf on average, according to sales general manager Thomas Lam Tat-man. On Saturday, the firm added 20 units.

Henderson intends to raise prices by 5 percent soon, starting with three- bedroom units, he said.

It has put 60 to 70 units on the market at about HK$5,500 and HK$5,600 psf, Lam said. Market sources said more than 60 flats have sold since the launch on Friday. The project comprises 185 units.

Bank homes in on property
7 August 2009
The Standard

Rising rents and property prices have led Credit Suisse to raise its net asset value estimates for a number of local developers.

The bank said property prices have increased by 21 percent since the beginning of the year and will stay flat for the rest of 2009.

Credit Suisse upgraded Hysan Development (0014), Swire Pacific (0019) and Sun Hung Kai Properties (0016) and Singapore-listed Hongkong Land to ``outperform'' from ``neutral.''

Henderson Land Development (0012) was also upgraded to ``outperform'' as it prepares to launch its Yau Tong residential project The Spectacle.

Henderson will start by selling 20 flats by tomorrow at the earliest, sales general manager Thomas Lam Tat-man said yesterday, adding there is a 50 percent chance that a price list will come out today.

The developer may sell flats in the 32-story building at HK$8,500 per square foot, but prices may rise by 10 percent within two months.

Lam said some potential buyers have shown interest in five big flats on the higher floors, with one offering to pay over HK$12,000 psf. Henderson expects to reap HK$1.4 billion from the 185-unit project.

Cheung Kong (Holdings) (0001) will sell 10 three-bedroom units in Le Prestige at HK$3.93 million each, or HK$3,733 psf, to buyers who pay immediately.

The developer is still keeping a small number of sea-view flats on the lower levels in Block 3.

Cheung Kong has sold over 1,620 of the 1,688 apartments in the Tseung Kwan O project, reaping more than HK$8 billion.

It's a nightmare, says factory boss caught in a web of red tape
13 October 2009
South China Morning Post

A factory owner has complained about the difficulties of reusing his waterfront factory due to red tape and town planning procedures.

Eddie Li Sau-hung, managing director of Campell International, which owns the 13-storey Wing Shan Factory Building in Yau Tong Bay, said he hoped the chief executive's policy address would deliver measures to streamline the administrative process and provide more support to factory owners who want to convert their properties for business use.

Li, vice-president of the Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong, said it took him almost five years to get government approval to convert the 40-year-old building, which is now half vacant, into an exhibition centre showcasing local-brand products. "First you have to go to the Town Planning Board to apply for change of land use," he said. "You also need approval from the buildings, fire services and environmental protection departments.

"Altogether you need to deal with seven or even eight departments," he said. When departments had different views about the proposals, the work became tougher and took even longer, he said.

Li sealed the deal earlier this year when he paid a premium of several hundred million dollars, but when he wanted to change his plan by adding a hotel to the building to provide accommodation for overseas businessmen, he met more obstacles.

The Town Planning Board would not consider his new proposal because his site was zoned into a "comprehensive development area", with other sites nearby owned by other developers who plan to turn the area into a residential estate.

The board said Li should wait for the other developers to submit an integrated plan together. "I don't know how long I need to wait," he said. He has written to the Development Opportunities Office, under the Development Bureau, for advice.

A spokeswoman for the office said it would not comment on individual cases but would later report to the Legislative Council on the plans it supported for their economic and social benefit.
