Application for Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) Phase 22A will start tomorrow (May 9). Offered for sale are 3 954 new flats in two prime projects.

The two projects are Lung Tak Court at Stanley and Aldrich Garden, a Private Sector Participation Scheme (PSPS) project situated at Shau Kei Wan. "The two projects offer excellent choices for home buyers, both featuring a beautiful and convenient living environment. Sold at 47% off the market price, the flats will surely be very attractive to applicants," remarked the Housing Department's Assistant Director (Applications & Home Ownership), Mr CHENG Yao-kong at the press briefing today.

Featuring the low-rise Harmony Rural design, Lung Tak Court is located in Ma Hang, overlooking Stanley Bay. It is adjacent to a new commercial complex, Stanley Plaza and the famous Stanley Market. It is well served by a convenient bus and mini-bus network. Situated on the foreshore of the Aldrich Bay reclamation area, Aldrich Garden is facing the eastern Victoria Harbour. The court is adjacent to Shau Kei Wan MTR station and well served by public transport. A 283 square-foot-gross Small Flat in Lung Tak Court is priced at $339,600 up while the price for a 505 square-foot-gross 2-bedroom unit in Aldrich Garden is from $850,700 up.

On-site show flats of Lung Tak Court will be open daily from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm throughout the application period. On every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday till May 22, free shuttle bus will be arranged outside the Housing Authority Customer Service Centre to take applicants to visit Lung Tak Court. Mock-up show flats of Aldrich Garden will be open at Basement 1 of the New World Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm during the application period.

Starting from this phase, successful singleton HOS applicants can purchase flats of any size. But their flat selection sequence will be placed after all family households, including non-nuclear White Form households. Tenants affected by the redevelopment of North Point Estate will be given top priority in purchasing flats of Aldrich Garden, while singleton households of North Point Estate will enjoy top priority in purchasing a flat not exceeding 51 square metres saleable area in Aldrich Garden. Green Form family applicants (2-head and above) will enjoy priority in purchasing flats of Lung Tak Court.
