Invitation for Expressions of Interest for Development of URA’s Queen’s Road West / In Ku Lane Development Project
The Urban Renewal Authority (URA) will invite interested developers to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the development of the Queen’s Road West / In Ku Lane Development Project (the Project) in Sai Ying Pun next Tuesday (13 September 2022).
The Project, which covers a site area of 1,566.7 square metres, was commenced in March 2018. Upon completion, it is planned to provide a total gross floor area of about 11,290 square metres.
The Project aims to rationalise the land uses and layout within the area by re-planning the public open space to improve the connectivity, accessibility and built environment. The existing In Ku Lane Refuse Collection Point, public toilet, and public open space, which will be re-provisioned in-situ and integrated within the future development, will be enhanced with better serviceability.
The successful developer will be required to construct the new development in compliance with the standard and quality requirements, the environmentally sustainable provisions and smart provisions set out in the development agreement of the Project with the aim of creating a sustainable living environment.
Information about the submission of the EOI for the Project will be available at the URA’s website (www.ura.org.hk) and published in several local newspapers next Tuesday. The Invitation Brochure for the Project can be obtained upon request from the URA’s Headquarters. Developers interested in the development are requested to submit the duly completed and signed Reply Form, together with the required information to substantiate their development experience and financial capability to undertake the development in accordance with the requirements and criteria set by the URA. All EOI should be submitted to the URA’s Headquarters at 26/F COSCO Tower, 183 Queen’s Road Central, by 12:00 noon on 27 September 2022 (Tuesday). Any submission of the EOI received after the specified closing time mentioned above will not be accepted.
A tender review panel under the URA Board will consider all EOI submissions and shortlist qualified companies, which will be invited to submit tenders for the development later.
