The Auckland-headquartered listed company said it would build a 350-unit apartment block, carparks, shops and offices in Hong Kong, after signing up to spend $111 million on the latest land deal.

On the same day as Trans Tasman's $101 million deal to sell its Auckland's Finance Centre to Wellington's St Laurence Group was due to go unconditional, the developer said it had bought a 2250 sq m Kowloon site.

The deal is the second big Hong Kong acquisition for the company that, in June, incurred criticism for splashing out $112 million on another building site there.
