Elize PARK, boutique residential development in core urban area, is positioned to be an affordable luxury

Elize PARK, LOFTER Group's latest boutique residential development in core urban area of Mong Kok East, is situated in the very heart of Kowloon, enjoying a prime location with convenient access to both Prince Edward and Mong Kok East MTR Station, both are just around 2 minutes' walking distance away. The superb connectivity ensures easy transportation and seamless connectivity to the rest of the city.

"We are thrilled with the exceptional sales results of Elize PARK. The affordability, combined with the exceptional quality and features of the development, has played a significant role in attracting buyers from diverse backgrounds." said Carol Chow, founder and chairperson of LOFTER Group. "The overwhelming demand and positive feedback we received from buyers further validate our commitment to create exceptional living spaces that exceed market norms. We are dedicated to deliver world-class living experience that combines luxury, comfort, and convenience."

Adding to its allure, Elize PARK benefits from its proximity to an upcoming 1,520,000 square feet commercial landmark architecture. This locality promises to bring a vibrant mix of retail, dining, and entertainment options, further enhancing the appeal of the area. Together with the existing retail malls surrounding Elize PARK, residents will enjoy a wealth of shopping and leisure options right at their doorstep.

The project sales and marketing plan and strategy

Elize PARK was first launched to the market in late-January 2024, when the residential market was less active, and Elize PARK being one of the first developments launched in 2024 successfully caught attention from the media, property agents and potential purchasers. After the relaxation of the cooling measures in stamp duty at the Budget Speech by the Hong Kong government in February 2024, Elize PARK, being a core location residential project, was greatly benefited. 12 units over total 52 units were sold in just 4 days' time with sales proceeds of over HK$80Million. The development then attracted bulk purchasers and there were one purchaser buying 2 whole floors in the development and another purchasing one whole floor in the mid-floor zone. These sales record successfully attracted attention in the market and the Developer then adopted a strategy to look for higher price rather than focusing on quantity and the latest transacted unit was at HK$29,025 per square feet. Within a month after all property market cooling measures are axed by the Hong Kong government, over 50% of Elize PARK units were sold with sales proceeds of over HK$200million. The sales results distinctly outperformed the other competitors in the market.

LOFTER Group has adopted a flexible sales strategy with all residential units being sold by tender, which is not the most common in Hong Kong. Elize PARK, was initially launched with a price list with an average unit price of HK$26,688 per square feet featuring 30 units. When compared to other new developments in the same district, though with different specifications, Elize PARK was recognized as being priced 25%-30% higher. This strategy successfully positioned Elize PARK as a high-end product with high-priced launch. The Developer later adopted a new sales strategy to be sold through a tender bidding process instead of sticking with the price list released. For developers, benefits of tender include the potential to secure the highest bid and retain the option not to sell if the desired price is not reached, potentially maximizing profits. Developers also maintain control over the timing and pace of the sale. For buyers, tender is time-efficient, eliminating the need to queue and wait for registration or unit selection. It also allows buyers to focus on units they are interested in, reducing the likelihood of impulsive decisions.

"Elize PARK stands out among new developments due to its shorter presale period and limited offering of only 52 units total, making it a rare project. The tender process offers more flexibility and better aligns with the product's targe market and buyers' needs, attracted a wide range of clients eventually, including local and Chinese investors and end-users, bulk-purchase buyers and even a renowned local artist." said Alvin Leung, Director of LOFTER Group.

LOFTER Group built a solid track record in the past few years

LOFTER Group's latest acquisition in core Tsim Sha Tsui, was partnered with two international funds, BentallGreenOak and Schroders Capital to redevelop the site into a Grade-A landmark commercial tower in the heart of Hong Kong.
