Novum West Received over 1,100 Subscriptions
About 15,000 people have visited the show flats of Novum West – the new project in Sai Ying Pun by Henderson Land – over the past weekend. Thomas Lam Tak-man, general manager of the company said it has received over 1,100 subscriptions, which is 16 times over-subscribed for the first batch of 63 units. He said 75% of subscriptions are for studio units so the company might launch more studio units. He added that the company might launch about 60 additional flats soonest today with a slight price up, and hope to provide about 200 units for sale on 16 May – the first day of sale of the project.
