超级豪华公寓汉美登

2011-06-04 《联合早报》 李敏雯 2008年推出已卖四成 每个单位至少800万元起跳的超级豪华公寓汉美登(Hamilton Scotts),自2008年推出市场以来卖出四成,当中一半买家是本地人。 发展商高鸿置地(KOP Properties)表示,接下来会推出的公寓项目将走年轻化路线,令其单位在更可负担的范围内。 汉美登是本地唯一在单位内设有停车位的公寓,也是继美国纽约和迪拜之后全球第三个拥有室内高楼停车位的房地产项目。这个项目也是迄今为止全球拥有最高楼层的室内停车位(30层楼高)的建筑物。 汉美登公寓昨早举行了盖顶仪式,该项目预料能在今年第四季取得临时入伙证(TOP)。 高鸿置地总裁陈莞君在盖顶仪式后接受访问时认为,这个销售数字还有待改善,不过已留意到高档房地产近期开始活跃,尤其是在市区周边的黄金地段价格攀升。 她说:“当时(指2008年)市场情绪不佳,我们选择销售就得降低价格,但现在集团有很好的持守力,我们也会继续观察价格走势,希望不久后这个项目的价位能逐渐回升到危机前的水平,甚至更高一点。” 除了两个小型顶层豪宅和两个顶层豪宅以外,汉美登其余52个单位都是约2700平方英尺(不包括停车空间在内)的三卧房式单位,目前售价从每平方英尺3000元起跳,但这个价位比2008年7月推出时的3800元尺价要低。 根据市区重建局网上的数据,这个项目最近的两宗交易是在去年6月,当时的价位是每平方英尺2800元和3200元。数据也显示,该项目的价位曾一度跌破2500元。 陈莞君指出,集团接下来会继续把创意点子带入本地的豪宅私宅项目,但在大小和种类方面做出调整,以走较年轻化的路线,这也让买家较负担得起。 多数外国买家也居住在本地,他们多来自欧洲、美国、中国、香港和印度尼西亚等地。 陈莞君说,虽然当年集团是首个让屋主的爱车也一起登堂入室的概念在新加坡推出,有些人甚至认为是个“疯狂的想法”,但这两年在美国洛杉矶和印度孟买的建筑师也开始走这条路线,洛杉矶项目的建筑师甚至说是从一个新加坡项目获得灵感。 汉美登是由意大利最大建筑师事务所之一AMA Architects操刀,也多次赢得国际奖项。 陈莞君也不排除参与政府售地计划下投标地皮,但为了维护这个高档品牌,还不至于在近期内把眼光转向大众或中档私宅领域。 高鸿置地也是本地豪华私宅项目丽嘉豪庭(Ritz Carlton Residences)的发展商。它也在去年底买下英国伦敦的著名地标建筑之一——Ten Trinity Square这栋历史悠久的建筑,并会将它发展成一个拥有37个单位的豪华住宅项目及高级酒店。这个项目已在上个月于伦敦推出。 如果您有任何房地产相关问题,不要犹豫,拨电+65-9337-8483与Jack联系.
