Far exhibition research and reconstruction of the hotel, only worry about the recovery
The demand for land for housing construction in Hong Kong is large, and the purchase of commercial land is rare. The demolition and redevelopment of the hotel has become an expedient for the value-added of commercial buildings. Far East Development (00035) has nine hotels in Hong Kong, but has not proposed a redevelopment plan.
Kong Xiangda, Managing Director of Yuanzhan, said that the company is still studying whether it is worth rebuilding the hotel at this stage. It has not confirmed the case. Considering that it will bring more benefits in the long run after reconstruction, it may miss a new wave of the recovery of the hotel industry. Rising waves. However, the company will continue to study how to reflect the value of assets.

Visitors to Hong Kong increased by 11.5% year-on-year in October. Among them, mainland visitors increased by 15%, with 4.654 million entry points and 37.3% overnight overnight visitors, an increase of 2.5%.
Kong Xiangda believes that the hotel supply in Hong Kong is tense. Thanks to the opening of the Hong Kong section of the High Speed Rail and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. The number of visitors to Hong Kong has increased. The occupancy rate and rent of the hotels have increased. If the market is closed at this stage, the market may be missed. Rising waves. The hotels in Tsuen Wan and the Olympic Station are convenient to accommodate high-speed rail passengers. In the future, depending on the opportunity, they will develop the hotel site around the West Kowloon Station.
However, he threatened that Hong Kong has not yet had a chance to make substantial adjustments in terms of land purchase. However, there is more room for adjustment in the mainland market. Therefore, we must seize the opportunity to capture potential investment before the policy is relaxed.
