  • On purchasing an apartment, each owner will acquire a number of ‘A shares’ in Marine Gate Holdings Ltd.

    This is the parent company of Marine Gate Management Ltd, which is responsible for the day to day running of the building. The shares can only be transferred with the sale of an apartment, thus every flat owner or ‘leaseholder’ has input to how the block is run.

    Marine Gate Holdings is represented by a board of directors who are elected at the Annual General Meeting in June. Any leaseholder can be nominated as a director and Marine Gate currently has a board with a wide range of backgrounds including building, banking, healthcare and civil engineering. Directors give their time unpaid.

    Major maintenance of the building is financed through a reserve fund. Recent projects and those planned include:

  • Comprehensive re-wiring of the lighting and emergency lighting in the building common ways (complete)
  • Installation of a new fire alarm system (complete)
  • Various structural repairs to the building (ongoing)
  • External redecoration of the building (completed 2013)
  • Upgrade works to the passenger and goods lifts (to be phased over several years to minimise disruption)
