Stella Abraham, Head of Hong Kong Residential Leasing, tells JLL Property NewsWire what is behind a split in the city's residential leasing market.

​​"From day one the hunt for our new home was an absolute pleasure. We have moved a fair bit around the world, and have never worked with anyone as good as the JLL Residential team, not even close.”
- Anca and Jakob Jorgensen

“This is to put on record the stupendous job done by JLL, right from getting into a serviced apartment to helping my family and me to move into my new apartment at HK. They even helped familiarise myself with our new surroundings and get our orientation correct. Finding the right home is so crucial when you move into a new country - a big thank you for your help.”

Sole Agency: The Lily, Repulse Bay/hong-kong/en-gb/case-studies/22/sole-agency-the-lily-repulse-baySole Agency: The Lily, Repulse Bay<p>​​​​The Lily is the first high-rise residential project in Hong Kong to be awarded the five star ‘High-rise Architecture’ award at the Asia Pacific International Property Awards 2011. A 24 storey luxury property i​​n Repulse Bay with unrivalled panoramic views, the development is one of the most desirable addresses in Hong Kong.</p><p>In 2008 Chinachem Gro​up appointed JLL to act as marketing consultant, property manager and sole leasing agent for over 30 serviced apartments and over</p><p>60 residences at the luxury address. ​</p><h3>​​​​​The Challenge</h3><p>The slower market conditions in 2013 have led to a decline in activity among prospective tenants, particularly for serviced apartments in the upper price bracket. A number of high-end serviced apartments have entered the market, intensifying the competition to secure tenants.​</p><h3>The Solution</h3><p>On top of a dynamic marketing campaign the team utilised its relationships with direct clients and prospective tenants to generate interest in the property.​</p><h3>The Result</h3><p>The team achieved an impressive occupancy rate of 80% during the first year of operation. The average rental agreed was HK$60 per square foot, with a peak of HK$80 per square foot – a record high on the Southside at the time.  </p><p>JLL has contributed to the continued success of the development including a 2015 win for “Best Serviced Apartments” in Hong Kong.​</p><h3> <span style="font-style:italic;color:#444444;font-family:'segoe ui', segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;">“</span><span style="font-style:italic;color:#444444;font-family:'segoe ui', segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;">The JLL Residential team has been instrumental in leasing Chinachem’s properties, managing our marketing campaigns and tenant hotline.

New stamp duty measures unlikely to rock the boat/hong-kong/en-gb/news/589/new-stamp-duty-measures-unlikely-to-rock-the-boatNew stamp duty measures unlikely to rock the boat<p>​<strong style="text-align:justify;">HONG KONG, 27 April 2017</strong><span style="text-align:justify;"> –</span><span style="text-align:justify;"> </span><span style="text-align:justify;">The new measure imposing the 15% stamp duty on all residential transactions involving first-time buyers purchasing multiple properties under a single instrument is unlikely to have a significant impact to market dynamics, according to JLL's latest Hong Kong Residential Sales Market report released today.</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Investors still looking for opportunities in the market could shift their focus to acquiring a one-off property requiring a larger lump sum payment, instead of acquiring multiple units in one go. This could, in turn, potentially further push up prices in the luxury market.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Henry Mok, Regional Director of Capital Markets at JLL</strong>, said: "No more than 5% of property transactions have been affected by this new stamp duty regime, and it will unlikely affect future transaction volumes. First-time buyers may have a higher chance of landing on their desired property, though competition remains fierce against new launches being oversubscribed and a lack of availability in the secondary market."</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The resale of adjoining units in the secondary market could be restricted as sellers would need to ensure that proper alteration plans have been approved by the government so as to treat the separate units as a single property. Otherwise, the stock would only appeal to a taker who is willing to pay the 15% stamp duty levy on the multiple units under one instrument, or to separate first-time buyers for each of the adjoining units.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Ingrid Cheh, Senior Manager of Research at JLL</strong>, said: "Primary projects continued to draw significant interest from first-time buyers despite the new demand-suppression measure. Against a line-up of large-scale developments ready for launch in the coming months and a recent pick up in the secondary market, transaction volumes for the full year could exceed the level of 54,700 sales recorded in 2016. Unless there are drastic changes to the financing environment or other external shocks, we should continue to see mass residential prices flying higher, in the range of up 10-15% in 2017, an upgrade from our previous forecast." </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:center;">- ends -</p><p> </p>0x0100E81015D9D08198458B498FF948D658F90052B0972AFC77B94093C478C1B5B47C88

The developer has appointed JLL as the sole agent and released the units for sales in Hong Kong. The asking prices of the flats start at £212,000 (HKD2.12 million).</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Inspired by History</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The 1830s Grade 1 listed warehouse, the Bonded Warehouse, and the UK's first passenger railway combined to form the backdrop for the new living village at St. John's and gives the building a certain degree of charm that only such a heritage can instill. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The 50-storey St. John's Place provides 287 units sized range between 431 and 1,257 sq. ft. The project has one, two and three-bedrooms units. Influenced by these early buildings, St. John's place is designed as an elegant and classic tower. Its form and shape is simple; its look is timeless; its materials are traditional, while its interiors, is made up of a series of natural materials.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The first ten floors will be the Nadler Hotel, one of the premier hotel operators in London's Soho district and an ideal partner in Manchester. Sitting above are several amenity floors, cafés, restaurants, health and wellbeing facilities, meeting areas, as well as rooms and spaces, exclusively for St. John's Place residents. Below sits the garden, a beautiful green space for a quiet retreat. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The top 12 floors contain the winter garden apartments where the outside comes inside providing an internal winter garden space to create a different experience. The project is expected to complete in the second half of 2020.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Timeless Details</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The same standards are applied to all apartment in the complex, be it small or large, each space shares the fine touches and attention to detail that Allied London is known for.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The living room is the focal point of the apartment, with iconic furniture and contemporary finishes. The kitchen has an open plan layout with dining connecting with the living room space, with beautiful durable quality materials in practical and innovative applications. The bedroom adopts luxurious and simple design of layouts, fabrics and finishes, while the bathroom uses handsome materials beautifully detailed. All of these considered design elements make the difference.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">"We are creating a place to live for the future, but we are doing it a traditional way, in a way that people will value and see the quality and effort that's gone into making their new home", said Michael Ingall, Chief Executive of Allied London.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">He continued, "St. John's will be a unique way to live the Manchester experience. Imagine a place that stimulates the senses. A sanctuary, an oasis, a secure home in the city – the place that enlivens you. Light, aspect, serenity. Relax among a rich tapestry of alleyways and courtyards or choose to live in style, elevated over Manchester's captivating skyline."</p><p> </p><p><strong>For more information about the project, please contact: </strong></p><p>Mandy Wong, irp.hk@ap.jll.com, (852) 3759 0909 or visit</p><p><a href="https://www.jllproperty.com.hk/international-sales">https://www.jllproperty.com.hk/international-sales</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;">- ends -</p>0x0100E81015D9D08198458B498FF948D658F90052B0972AFC77B94093C478C1B5B47C88
