The Hong Kong government will release five residential plots worth an estimated HK$28 billion for tender in this quarter, including one on The Peak, two in Kai Tak, and one each in Tuen Mun and Cheung Sha on Lantau Island, Michael Wong Wai-lun, Development Secretary, said recently. The five plots will have a total capacity for 1,850 units. Together with land supply from MTR Corp’s tender for Ho Man Tin station, the total supply of private flats will increase to 2,750 units.
Phase 3 development of the site next to the Wong Chuk Hang Station received five bids when the tender closed on August 7, announced by the MTR Corporation.
