At home in nature: Yuen Long area proves popular with buyers in search of space
Feverish state of construction activity, with units in residential developments such as Grand Yoho phase two now up for sale
January 13, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt







Yuen Long in New Territories West has been a hive of construction activity, with new property projects announced almost every week.

Across the western area of Yuen Long, including the suburbs of Tong Yan San Tsuen, Ping Shan and Tai Tong, there are 14 new residential projects on the market, according to an electronic platform that gives details of the sales of first-hand residential properties.

Most have been on the market for a while, except the two latest ones being marketed by Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) and New World Development (NWD).

Scheduled for completion later this year, the second phase of the Grand Yoho development will offer 826 residential units, spread across three blocks, in total in a diverse layout mix, from 394 sq ft to 2,125 sq ft. The majority of units will be laid out as two- and three-bedrooms.

The first batch of 166 units has just been released for sale. Stripping off discounts, the units come with a price tag of approximately HK$12,000 to HK$17,000 per square foot, which is about 20 per cent more expensive than those priced for the first phase. Selling prices range from HK$6.7 million to HK$21 million each.

A few general construction images I was able to get in February.


Not sure what this is, but the foundation is massive. Right across from the Tsim Sha Tsui Station.



Construction cranes sticking up across Victoria Harbor.



Construction cranes in Kwun Tong.



Crappy shot out the taxi window on the Tsing Kwai Hwy, I think. There's a bunch of stuff like this going up.


Heading back to Kowloon.

And just for fun, the techno laser light show I randomly stumbled upon on a Friday night. Skyscrapers with laser beams attached to their heads!

Nice! We don't get a lot of Hong Kong updates here, and I know there's a fair amount of building in Kowloon. Keep 'em coming!
