New office for Urban Renewal Authority
The office of the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) will move to the Low Block of the Grand Millennium Plaza on 181 Queen's Road Central, with effect from 2 July 2002. The telephone number (2588 2222) and fax number (2827 0176 / 2827 0085) remain unchanged.
The new office premises, measuring 55,000 square feet in area, includes an information centre where members of the public can access information about the work of the Authority.
Besides highlighting the mission and vision of the Authority in respect of redevelopment, revitalisation, rehabilitation and preservation, the information centre also features interactive activities about urban renewal.
As a result of office relocation, the Authority will achieve an annual saving of about $22 million.
Apart from its main office at the Grand Millennium Plaza, the Authority also operates neighbourhood centres in Sham Shui Po, Tai Kok Tsui and Wan Chai, to provide services to residents affected by its three early launch projects.
