The Project aims to rationalize the land uses through replanning and restructuring and to improve the pedestrian walking environment and enhance walkability and connectivity between the old Kowloon City District and new Kai Tak District.
The proposed development of the Project includes:
A split-level sunken plaza of about 1,000sq.m., which will have direct connection with the underground pedestrian tunnel towards the future underground shopping street (USS) and the Kai Tak Development Area (KTDA) to create a nodal point to connect this part of the old district with the new KTDA. The plaza will be opened for public use and will have retail components, sitting area and event space for place-making opportunities to enrich users’ experience and strengthen its identity.
Replanning and converting the existing portion of Sa Po Road within the Scheme to optimize the configuration of the plaza and provide solution space for bus queuing at the pavement of Prince Edward Road East and enhance pedestrian circulation.
Provision of an underground public vehicle park to alleviate the parking demand of the area and future opportunities to replace certain on-street parking spaces for pavement widering to improve walkability in the surrounding area.
Small-to-medium sized flats and commercial/retail uses will be provided. About 800sq.m. GFA in the Scheme will be reserved for GIC uses to meet the community needs.
The Project may also include other facilities and uses as required by the TPB.
