Promoting Hong Kong's Innotech Development
The government has been very active in advocating re-industrialization in Hong Kong in recent years; it has transformed industrial estates into innoparks. Under the government's industrial building revitalization measures, Kwai Chung, a conventional industrial district, has rapidly transformed into a business district with unlimited development potential.
Bella Chhoa, Director of Asset Management of Sino Group, said: "Recent years saw the thriving development of innovation and technology; Industry 4.0 has quickly become a global trend. Amid these developments, Sino Group launched a brand new industrial development, 38 Wing Kee Road, with BDx becoming a major tenant. There is no doubt that Hong Kong will be re-industrialized, riding on the development of innotech. We believe that the opening of the data centre will further advance Hong Kong's innotech development."
Vijay Tripathi, Chief Financial Officer of BDx, said: "Today marks another great milestone in BDx's plans in Hong Kong, which is a strategic and important market for our customers. Being one of the fastest growing data center platforms in the region, we are continuously expanding our footprint in Hong Kong to support digital delivery and cater to the demand from our existing and potential customers. We are excited to develop our new facility in partnership with the SINO Group, a trusted and leading property developer in the region."
Over 90% Letting Rate in Sino Group Industrial Buildings & Completion of Three Industrial Building Revitalization Projects
Prospective tenants can choose from 30 properties offered by Sino Group's industrial building leasing services. Refurbishments at the two industrial buildings in Kwun Tong as well as the one in Sha Tin have already been completed.
Bella Chhoa, Director of Asset Management of Sino Group, said: "Sino Group's industrial buildings are located throughout Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories. We stand ready to provide flexible floor partitions and professional solutions to satisfy the needs of different clients, such as logistics, central food processing, testing centre and data centre. The year 2022 saw a vibrant industrial building leasing market, as the overall letting rate in the Group's industrial buildings exceeded 90%.
"In terms of revitalization of industrial buildings and to practice the idea of mixed living platform, the Group has brought in lifestyle tenants, such as Fitness and Yoga centre, rock climbing, healthcare and different types of restaurants so as to promote work-life balance. Recently, we have brought in a traditional Chinese medicine healthcare centre and a well-known Japanese restaurant for the industrial building revitalization projects in Sha Tin and Kwun Tong, respectively. The TCM healthcare centre has just opened for business this month, and the Japanese restaurant is slated to open in the third quarter this year."
Chhoa also added that in order to promote sustainable development, things like touchless lift buttons and electric vehicle charging stations will be installed at 38 Wing Kei Road. Also, green elements will be incorporated in the building's exterior walls, and the goal is to attain BEAM's silver certification. Furthermore, the Group collaborates with a local beekeeping conservation group by installing a city beekeeping box on the rooftop of the building so as to make an additional effort to conserve solitary bees. The Group also promotes green living by leasing spaces to local green businesses like eco brick companies and hydroponics companies.
