William Faulkner

Life lessons from the heart

You can't ut Newton Faulkner in a box because he is a bit of everything: soft rocker, guitar ace and folk artist. His debut album Hand Built by Robots is proof of his talent and versatility.

Home truths

In noughties Britain, where authors gain media notice by spouting headline-grabbing opinions and flaunting their eccentric lifestyles, Graham Swift is an unusual figure.

His media persona is unpretentious and his opinions demure. An A-list writer with a low profile, his personal history is as seemingly unremarkable as the characters in his work.

First historical Bund building ready for auction

THE first historical building on the Bund is ready for sale or lease, with valuation work just having been completed, says authorised surveyor Brooke Hillier Parker.

The property consultant's partner and research head, David Faulkner, said yesterday the building had housed Banque Indosuez.

No about-turn

I REFER to Inside Politics (Sunday Morning Post, July 24) which stated former critics of the Government's package of measures to cool the property market had now done a 180-degree turn in saying the measures had proved very successful. I was quoted in the article as supporting these measures.

Property reform will be effective 'only by 1996'

MEASURES taken by the Government to curb the escalation in property prices will not be practically effective until at least 1996, according to a consultant.

Assuming the Government imposes a clampdown by supplying more land, Brooke Hillier Parker partner David Faulkner said any extra land administered would not be turned into usable properties until two years later.

Slowdown sees prices fall

INVESTORS are adopting a wait-and-see attitude with regard to residential property, according to Brooke Hillier Parker partner David Faulkner.

The general trend for August was one of stagnation or slight decline.

Sha Tin is no exception to the rule where prices too have declined.

Robinson points to recovery

ROBINSON Heights' price trend is a good indicator of what's going on with prices for flats in the Mid-Levels, according to David Faulkner, a partner at Brooke Hillier Parker (BHP).

The latest BHP property report showed that flats, selling for $4,405 per square feet (psf) in December, have climbed to $4,720 psf, a 7.1 per cent increase.

Prices up at New Town

WITH property consultants agreeing the residential market is picking up, it is no wonder one of the more popular developments, New Town Plaza, has seen a 4.7 per cent price increase in the last couple of months.

Falling Plaza prices to 'stabilise'

PRICES at Tuen Mun Town Plaza have slipped from their six-month high over April to October of last year, but Brooke Hillier Parker partner Mr David Faulkner expects prices at the Plaza to stabilise this summer.

Refurbished airport bank back soon

I REFER to Mr F. E. Faulkner's letter headlined, ''Uncaring bank'' (South China Morning Post, January 8).

I believe I can put Mr Faulkner's mind at ease, and that of other airport customers requiring banking facilities at Kai Tak, by confirming that a banking facility at the departures level will again be available from January 21.

16 Jan 1993 - 12:00am

Not responsible

WHILE sympathising with your correspondent (F. E. Faulkner, South China Morning Post, January 8) who encountered problems with the banking facility at Kai Tak recently, could I point out that the Provisional Airport Authority is not yet responsible for that airport.
