Developers of The Greenfields in Yuen Long have decided to release more flats in their joint-venture residential development at a higher price after a 'positive' response to the first day of registration yesterday. However, no figure for the number of applicants was given and estate agents described the response as 'not very enthusiastic'. Sino Land, a project manager and shareholder in the development, said the decision to release more units had been prompted by a positive response to the project. Details of the price and number of additional units have yet to be fixed. Fortune Realty sales manager Sunny Tin Kwok-fai said not many people were queuing up for registration yesterday evening. He expected more applicants would come in the remaining three registration days until Thursday. Mr Tin said the project, in the fringe area of the New Territories, would attract end-users. He expected about half of all units would be sold on Saturday if the developers did not raise prices drastically. Sino Land last week announced the launch of the first 88 units at The Greenfields at an average of $2,870 per square foot for cash, which agents said was about 4 per cent lower than $3,000 per square foot for transacted prices in the secondary market. On Sunday, it decided to put another 122 flats on sale at prices 1.65 per cent higher, bringing the number of units on offer this Saturday to 210. Mr Tin said the sale was not a good indicator of the SAR housing sector, taking into account its scale. The 46-storey twin-tower development comprises 480 units measuring 602 square feet to 953 sq ft. It is jointly owned by 13 developers including Cheung Kong (Holdings) and Sun Hung Kai Properties.
