Three South Lantau plots, including a two-hectare site in Cheung Sha, have been slated for auction in the government’s annual land sale programme.
The three sites are all zoned for low-density residential use.
They are also all within 1 km of the San Shek Wan roundabout, the closest point on South Lantau to Tung Chung and the HK-Macau bridge, and are almost certain to become high-end residential developments.
The largest site, Lot 738 in DD 332 (above), covers the area surrounding the police base at Upper Cheung Sha, running right up to the Acacia Villa apartments.
The 2.15 ha plot is the fifth biggest of all of the 32 properties in the Lands Department sale programme.
Across South Lantau Road is a 2,730 sq metre plot, Lot 765, just next door to a 2,480 sq metre site that sold for a record HK$210 million last August (the site remains undeveloped).
At nearby San Shek Wan is the third site, Lot 766, just east of the YWCA camp, which is 5,770 sq metres.
All sites are zoned Residential 4, which stipulates a maximum plot ratio of 0.8.
