Kowloon Development Company Limited (“KDC”) (Stock Code: 34), a member of the Polytec group, was established on 24 January 1961 and was listed on the main board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited on 4 July 1995. Since its establishment, KDC has been engaged in property investment and investment holding with the operation of its business mainly in Hong Kong.
The Group has substantially broadened the areas of its business activity since the Polytec group gained the control of it in 2002. The Group is principally engaged in property development, property investment and property management in Hong Kong and Mainland China. It is determinedly committed to enhancing its competitive position, with its landbank amounting to approximately 3.5 million sq m of attributable gross floor area in Hong Kong and Mainland China as at 30 June 2022. The Group is also engaged in financial investments and investment holding.
The main focus of the Group has been residential development in Hong Kong and Mainland China. In Hong Kong, the Group has recently launched the presale of Manor Hill in Tseung Kwan O. Part of the site formation works for another wholly-owned project on Clear Water Bay Road is well underway. For the Group’s 60%-owned residential and commercial development project located on High Street, the demolition works are well underway. In Mainland China, the Group currently has development projects in Shenyang, Tianjin, Wuxi, Shanghai, Foshan, Huizhou, Shanxi and Zhuhai which are in various stages of planning and construction. In addition to the residential trading portfolio, the development project on Clear Water Bay Road contains significant retail development which is intended to be retained for long term investment purposes in order to grow the Group’s portfolio of recurrent income producing properties to complement the present principal investment asset of the Pioneer Centre in Mongkok, Hong Kong.
Besides expanding the existing landbank in an opportunistic manner and building out the present portfolio, the Group is focusing on building a strong brand as a thoughtful developer producing quality products. The Board and management wish to see a united team working together with passion and a drive for excellence in the products and services which the Group produces.
By realising the inherent value of the landbank under this spirit, the Board believes this will enable a great enterprise to be built and to last.
