URA’s demand-led redevelopment project in Tai Kok Tsui: Authorisation by the Secretary for Development
The Secretary for Development (SDEV) has authorised the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) to proceed with a demand-led redevelopment project in Tai Kok Tsui.
The authorisation, which is published in the Gazette today (Friday), is given under Section 24(5) of the Urban Renewal Authority Ordinance (URAO) for a redevelopment project at No. 8 - 10 Fuk Chak Street / 7 - 9 Li Tak Street in Tai Kok Tsui.
The demand-led project was implemented by way of a development project in accordance with Section 26 of the URAO. The commencement notice of the Fuk Chak Street / Li Tak Street project was published in the Gazette on 28 June 2013, under Section 23 of the URAO. It was followed by a two-month publication period, during which no objection was received.
In accordance with Section 24(3) of the URAO, the URA submitted the Fuk Chak Street / Li Tak Street project to SDEV for consideration on 25 November 2013.
The project covers a site area of about 716 square metres, abutting Fuk Chak Street and Li Tak Street. Built in 1964, the two buildings within the project boundary are seven to eight storeys high.
The URA's initial proposal is to redevelop the project to provide about 96 small to medium sized residential units and a retail podium at the lower floors, tentatively scheduled for completion by 2019/2020.
A plan delineating the boundary of the project with a general description is available for public inspection at:
- the URA Headquarters (26/F, COSCO Tower, 183 Queen's Road Central, Central);
- the Public Enquiry Service Centre of the Yau Tsim Mong District
Office (G/F, Mong Kok Government Offices, 30 Luen Wan
Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon);
- URA's Urban Renewal Resource Centre (No 6, Fuk Tsun Street, Tai Kok Tsui, Kowloon).
